During August and September, the constellation Virgo has a pronounced influence on us.
"Virgo is very intimately related with the intestines and especially with the pancreas and the islets of langerhans, which secrete insulin, so important for sugar digestion. When they arrive at the belly, the forces that ascend from the earth become charged with adrenal hormones that prepare them for their ascent to the heart. During this sign of Virgo (the celestial virgin), lying on our backs with the body relaxed, we must move the belly with small “jumps,” so that the energies which ascend from the Earth can become charged in the belly with the adrenal hormones. The Gnostic student must comprehend the importance of that cauldron called the stomach and put an end to the vice of gluttony forever. The disciples of Lord Buddha sustained themselves with only one meal a day. Fish and fruits constitute the principal food of the inhabitants of the planet Venus. There are marvelous vital principles in grains and vegetables of all types.
"During the zodiacal sign of Virgo, you must vocalize the vowel “U” daily for one hour in order to develop the telepathic center of the solar plexus, like this: uuuuuuuuu…" —Practical Astrology by Samael Aun Weor
"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."
