The Chinese Gender Prediction Chart is based on astrology. It is believed it can predict a baby's gender using the mother's age and the month the baby was conceived. Users must know their lunar age as well as their traditional age to use the chart correctly.

The Chinese gender chart is based on traditional Chinese days, months and years. According to the Chinese calendar, humans are already one-year-old when they are born. The months are also different from traditional Western calendar months, as Chinese months are based on the phases of the moon. A person's lunar age is calculated using the Gregorian-Lunar Conversion Table. For easy calculation, a lunar age calculator is available at

All information must be as accurate as possible for the best chance of success. Ensure the correct chart is used, as different variations are found on the Internet.

Once the mother's lunar age and the month of conception are determined, the chart can be used to predict the baby's gender. Accuracy rates range anywhere from 50 percent to 98 percent.
