KANYA / VIRGO (Uttiraphalguni 2, 3, 4, Hastham, Chithira 1, 2)
Virgo people have comparatively less power of resistance. Virgo may stand considerable strain, however, being of a nervous and wiry temperament; when the Virgo person gives up, he finds it very hard to rise and shake off an illness.
Being of a negative disposition he is apt to let circumstances rule him, and does not assert his will power to overcome. Virgo is the natural sixth house sign, the house which has rule over sickness; hence when Virgo people once get into the clutches of sickness, they are apt to become chronic invalids.
Virgo rules the abdominal region, intestines, lower lobes of the liver, the spleen, the duodenum, and the sympathetic nervous system. The afflictions which may be classed under the sign of Virgo are determined largely by the planets which may be afflicted in this sign. Cramps in the intestines, wind, colic, malnutrition, diarrhoea, constipation, peritonitis, cholera, dysentery, worms, catarrh of the bowels, and appendicitis may result from afflictions in Virgo. They are also prone to Rheumatism, weakness in legs, malaria etc.
