Viharana – moving

«The function of the five (senses), with regard to sound and other (sense-objects), is that of observation only. Speech, handling, walking, excretion, and generation are the functions of the five (organs)» (Sāmkhyā-karikā, 28). 

The organs of knowledge serve to observe and understand things, while the organs of action serve to react, or to intervene with the appropriate action based on what is perceived. Viharana is the function of moving, usually performed thanks to the feet, considered to be organs of action. Viharana can be implemented even without having feet though, for example by rolling, jumping on hands, flying.

In short, Scorpio, move! The Sun puts you in front of concrete change possibilities, so don’t be daydreaming or complaining about upheavals. If you don’t take the positive side of it, you will feel burdened and at the same time unable to take a direction. If, on the other hand, you try to draw a lesson from everything that happens, considering the mistakes you’ve made in the past too, then you will have the courage you need to face the changes and turn them towards the best for you. You will then end the month full of enthusiasm and renewed energy.
