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.
