To bring happiness and joy to your future baby

Keep this sachet with you all the time during your pregnancy, preferably directly on your skin. It will protect your baby.

The five pointed star to reveal the sex of your baby

Trace a five pointed star upon the belly of the pregnant mother, putting a number from one to five on each branch starting from the left and putting a 6 in the middle. The star should have a point heading towards each breast and one towards her intimate parts. Tell the future mother to close her eyes and put a finger on the figure. If she points on the numbers: 5, 3, 1, she can expect a son and if she points on the numbers:6, 4, 2, she can expect to have a daughter.

If she puts her finger between two numbers, tell her to do it again and if she does it several time in a row, start again the following day. Each branch forming a triangle should be as large as the palm of your hand.

The pentagram -the five pointed star- is the presentation of man in the esoteric teachings. It is the future mothers instinct that will guide her finger.

To get pregnant...

The round box

Pick every hair you find on your pillow, your own as well as those of your husband. Keep them somewhere secret.
After a period of 49 days take the hairs and two dried peppermint leaves and put them in a round metal box. Put the box in the fire after having closed it thoroughly. The ashes of the hair and mint leaves should then be added to a meal, shared by your husband and yourself, half-half. It is said that this will make you give birth to a child within a period of a year.

The round box symbolizes the womb wherein meets the gametes symbolized by the fire.

Mallow flowers in your bath

Heat an iron ring red hot, then throw it in a wooden recipient filled with rain water or spring water. Add two handful of Mallow flowers.

Put your hands and feet in the bath simultaneously, agitating the water, during some ten minutes.

These hand and feet baths in a water previously energised by a heated piece of metal are excellent to gather the vitality it is charged with. The emperor Charlemagne (France) planted lots of Mallow because of his appreciation of it. It was also employed by the pharmacopoeia for its aphrodisiac virtues.
