Gemini

«Who pierced the seven openings in the head? Who made these ears, these nostrils, eyes, and mouth, through whose surpassing might in all directions bipeds and  quadrupeds have power of motion?» (Atharva-veda, 10.2.6).

Self-reflection!

Neptune square, which will stay for several years, leads you, Gemelli, to a deep reflection on yourself. This transit is necessary to make you understand that you do not know yourself enough yet and that your strong beliefs are not exactly what you thought. Venus and Jupiter opposition could increase the tension if, instead of finding time and peace to assess the situation, you continue to look on the surface ignoring the problems in depth.

The mystical physiology of tantrism distinguishes three bodies or śarīra: sthūla-śarīra, sūkshma-śarīra, kārana-śarīra. They indicate respectively the gross or physical body, the subtle body and the causal or purely spiritual body. Gross body is made of skin, bones, muscles, etc. The intellect, the sense of the ego, the senses, the emotions are part of the subtle body. The causal one concerns the world of causality in the complex interweaving of the manifested universe.

Medical science  teaches how difficult it is to know deeply the physical body. Even more so, knowing the three bodies is the work of a lifetime, if not the purpose of life itself. Maybe it will be impossible to complete it, but understanding at least a part of it can help you open the doors to a greater well-being, Gemini.

Be curious about yourself. Explore yourself with this short sequence:

Utkata-āsana, literally the unstable pose, but known as the powerful pose and the yogic chair too. Stop a moment. Be strong and firm, take a stock of yourself. // From 30 sec. at 1 min.

Kūrma-āsana, turtle pose. Withdraw as the turtle withdraws its limbs and head. If you do not reach the feet with you forehead, use a support to rest your head. Make the position comfortable. Observe the flow of thoughts and look where it takes you. // 2-3 min.

Concentration. Sit in a meditative position. Put a flower in front of you. True, if possible, otherwise the image of a flower. Take some time to relax all your muscles. Then contemplate the color and shape of the flower. Observe its beauty. Think of the process by which it is born, how it is formed, how it blooms. Reflect about how its shape is necessary for its function. // From 5 to 15 min.

TOTAL TIME: from 7 to 17 minutes.

MANTRA of the MONTH: «Who am I?».
