Brahmacharya – restraint 

«When established in sexual restraint, vigor is obtained» (Yoga-sūtra, 2.38). 

There are always long discussions about what exactly brahmacharya is. There are those who translate it with abstinence from sex and those who say it’s a generica abstinence from waste of energy, be its origin sex, a worldly life, stress or everything that can exhaust the body and consequently the mind. In the case of the yogi, the body must be rested and the mind clear in order to devote himself to spiritual discipline.

In all other cases, it may be a good idea to follow at least a little bit of brahmacharya to avoid fatigue and stress. It is not a hard restriction, but just avoiding excesses.

I advise you to rest at the beginning of this month, Virgo, even if you feel full of energy. You can use them to get in shape, to engage in some healthy habits, so that afterwards you will work even better with a stronger body and a clearer mind. You will need it for the second half of the month when with full confidence and desire to do, you will have ideas that will also be well received and you can work hard for everything you want and need to build.
