Smells fishy to me

Oh feh. I just read that the Jewish month of Adar is associated with fertility, because the astral sign of Adar is the fish, and fish are considered extremely fertile. :Þ

At least it makes for a good Purim joke for infertiles.

Yes, and Tishrei is a good month for fertility because we read about Sarah and Chana on Rosh Hashana...and Sivan is a good month for fertility because all Jewish souls were present at Sinai and this is the time when they yearn to take form on our plane...and Nissan is particularly good for infertiles because it's a month of miracles and transcending the physical...

(Can you tell I'm not buying it?)

All falls under the category of "segula" for me!

Although, apparently, if you eat the fish... ;)

In that case, just seems like the Jewish Year is a good time for fertility. Since you've lived through all those months before though, guess "good for" wasn't "good enough." :-(

Segulahs aren't magic charms, obviously, and it would be a good thing if people stopped offering them as such, huh?

--Another clueless fertile, trying to educate herself, and offering the only thing she can: her prayers on your behalf.
