During October, and November, the constellation Scorpio has a pronounced influence on us.
Scorpio rules the sexual organs, where all the power of the priest and priestess resides. Without the conservation and transmutation of the sexual energy, one cannot be a priest or priestess. Sexual purity is the basis of spiritual power. Thus, Scorpio is a peak time to transmute the sexual energy.
The main spiritual exercise for Scorpio is Maithuna: the chaste sexual cooperation between husband and wife. Those who are single should practice pranayama daily.
"We must accept our burdens gracefully, for when the student takes the Path, he is often plunged into ranges of experience which other men escape, in order to teach him to have command of himself in his environment, and thus learn the reason why he has been placed there."
