Our **lunar age calculator** is a **powerful tool** that helps you calculate your **age** based on the **lunar calendar**, a system that tracks the **phases of the moon**.

Unlike the

Gregorian calendar, which is based on thesolar year, the lunar calendar is rooted in thelunar cycle, lasting approximately29.5 days.

The **lunar age** is calculated by counting the **number of lunar years** since a person’s birth. A **lunar year** represents the time it takes for the moon to complete a **full cycle** of phases, from **new moon** to **new moon**, typically around **354 days**, which is about **11 days shorter** than a solar year.

## Lunar Age Calculation Formula

The **formula** to calculate your lunar age is:

**Lunar Age = (Current Lunar Year - Birth Lunar Year) + 1**

Let’s say your birth date is **January 1, 2000** (Gregorian calendar). To find your **lunar age**:

- Determine your
**birth lunar year**. In this case, your birth lunar year is**1999**. - Find the
**current lunar year**. Let’s say the current lunar year is**2024**. - Apply the formula:
**Lunar Age = (2024 – 1999) + 1 = 26**

Your **lunar age** is **26 years old**.

**Determine your birth date**: This can be based on the**Gregorian calendar**or the**lunar calendar**, depending on your preference.**Find the lunar year of your birth**: Use**online tools**or consult a**lunar calendar**to determine the lunar year corresponding to your birth date.**Identify the current lunar year**: Again, use**online resources**or a**lunar calendar**to find the current lunar year.**Apply the lunar age formula**: Use the formula**Lunar Age = (Current Lunar Year – Birth Lunar Year) + 1**to calculate your lunar age.

Let’s say your birth date is **July 4, 1980** (Gregorian calendar). Using the steps above, you can find that:

Your

current lunar yearis2024.Applying the formula:

Lunar Age = (2024 – 1980) + 1 = 45

Your **lunar age** is **45 years old**.

## What is lunar age in pregnancy?

The **lunar age** is also used in some cultures to determine the **gender** of a baby during **pregnancy**.

This belief is based on the idea that the **lunar cycle** influences the **development** of the fetus, and the lunar age of the mother can be used to predict the **gender** of the child.

Let’s say a pregnant woman’s **lunar age** is **27 years old**. According to the lunar gender prediction, if her lunar age is an **odd number**, the baby is more likely to be a **boy**. If her lunar age is an **even number**, the baby is more likely to be a **girl**.

In this case, the woman’s lunar age of **27** is an **odd number**, so the prediction would be that she is more likely to have a **boy**.

## How to calculate Chinese age for gender prediction?

The formula for calculating **Chinese age** is:

**Chinese Age = (Current Lunar Year - Birth Lunar Year) + 1**

This is similar to the formula for calculating lunar age, but the key difference is that in **Chinese age**, a person is considered **1 year old** at birth, and their age increases by **1 year** on the **Lunar New Year**, regardless of their birth date.

A person’s birth date is **January 1, 2000** (Gregorian calendar). Their birth lunar year is **1999**. If the current lunar year is **2024**, their **Chinese age** would be:

**Chinese Age = (2024 - 1999) + 1 = 26**
