Vedic Astrology & the Chakras

© 2008 James Jarvis, M.A. It is well known to many of us by now that the “human energy field” is comprised of seven major energy centers or chakras that are located along the cerebral-spinal axis. Each of these centers acts as a substation or transformer of the universal energy or prana that flows through the medulla at the base of the skull. As the prana descends through the five lower chakras it is transformed or modified from its pure state. If the lower chakras are clear and free of negative impressions (trauma, suppression, etc.) then the prana is free to ascend back to the upper chakras leading to higher states of consciousness. If the lower chakras are blocked, however, then the prana is blocked from ascending and these energetic blockages begin to manifest as “dis-ease” on mental, emotional and physical levels. In other words, if we have blockages in any of the chakras it means we have broken our “attune”-ment with universal life force energy on a subtle, or not so subtle, level. Since the chakras are energy centers that respond to vibration, one of the ways that we can come back into alignment or attunement is through the conscious use of vibration, music and movement. One of the tools that can help us in this journey is an understanding, through the use of Vedic astrology, of the relationship between the chakras and the planets. In Vedic astrology each of the chakras is associated with or is governed by a different planet. On an energetic level the vedic astrological chart is a map of not only the inter-relationship of the planets but a map of the interrelationship and condition of the chakras. In essence, we have our own inner solar system that guides the evolution of our consciousness through the various chakra centers. By understanding the planetary quality of each chakra we can use specific forms of music, vibration and movement to awaken and open each chakra and energize ourselves. Astrology of the Chakras The first chakra, located at the base of the spine, is associated with the planet Saturn or Shani in Sanskrit. Astrologically, Saturn represents our ability to ground ourselves so that we can materialize our dreams. Not enough Saturn in our lives leaves us ungrounded and unable to support ourselves. For some, too little Saturn makes it hard to create a sense of strong boundaries and center. Too much Saturn, however, and we can hold onto the material plane too much and resist change because of insecurity and fear. One of the ways to heal the first chakra is through connecting with the energies of the earth . Walking barefoot, doing yoga and drumming are all ways of tuning into the lower frequencies of the first chakra. Drumming, in particular, is an effective way of opening and awakening the first chakra. When we drum we often hold the drum between our legs which directly connects with the first chakra at the base of the spine. By tuning into the lower frequencies of the drum we not only energize ourselves but also become more present and in our bodies. Repeating Saturn’s mantra, “Om Sham (pronounced Shum) Shanaye Namah,” on Saturn’s day (Saturday) also helps to bring in earth energy and help us ground and create a solid center. The second chakra, governed by Jupiter or Guru in Sanskrit, is located in the pelvic or genital region of the body. The second chakra has to do with issues of creativity and sexuality and how we channel our fundamental life force energy and emotions. Astrologically, Jupiter is the planet that represents how we expand our consciousness. If we grew up in a family that suppressed emotions or sexuality then this would directly impact the second chakra and our sense of expansiveness. If we suppress one area of the second chakra, say sexuality, then all of the other areas;: our passion, creativity, expression of deep emotion, are affected as well. When the second chakra is open we are in touch

Venus represents what we value. devotion. control. Music of the Heart The fourth chakra. trusting our gut level instincts. located in the throat region. is to get our instinctual energy moving and open and expand the range of pelvic movement. As we clear the emotional attachments of the first three chakras then we can begin to open to the expansive qualities of the higher chakras. as it is Neptune that represents the process of transcending our own individuality and merging with spirit or divine love. what we are passionate about and our capacity to share our love unconditionally. rage. A blocked third chakra may manifest as a lack of being able to make decisions. They are also a very safe way of practicing how to give and receive love unconditionally. It is through the . are excellent. are the corulers of the third chakra. Music. Combining sacred mantras from different spiritual traditions with simple circle dances. The third chakra. The Dances of Universal Peace from the Sufi tradition of Samuel Lewis are an excellent way of combining sound and movement to facilitate a sense of mystical connection or oneness with others. grief and rage that are often trapped in the third chakra. Music can be a particularly powerful medium for opening the third chakra as it is a non-verbal form of communication that by-passes the cognitive mind and directly impacts our deepest emotions. such as didgeridoo. located at the solar plexus or “hara” is the seat of our personal power. It is also important to learn how to let go of the fear of being out of control. passion. sex and power.with our primal life force. will help to loosen up the energy in that center. “Om Brahm (pronounced Bhrum) Brihaspataye Namah. The key to awakening the energy of the second chakra. and a sense of connection with others. the third chakra can then blossom and the energy that has been channeled into control can now be re-routed into more fulfilling forms of self expression and creativity. I also assign "higher" rulership of the fourth chakra to the planet Neptune. or kundalini energy. belly dance or Turkish dervish music. intimidation. or violence. It has been said that our western culture primarily relates to the issues of the first three chakras. fears of giving and receiving affection or relationships that are unfullfilling. the Dances of Universal Peace help us to let go of the artificial walls that keep us separate. Third Eye & Crown Chakras The fifth chakra. Also. whether emotionally or physically is a way of accessing the deeper emotions of anger. The key to healing the heart chakra is through the development of compassion. then. using ethnic or world music that activates the instinctual or moving center. and true creativity in our lives. Many people who feel they have to control their emotions find themselves being moved to tears by evocative music. the planet representing the mentor/teacher archetype. Opening the Throat. and feelings of being manipulated or victimized. not being to trust our own instincts. is governed by the planet Venus. Several years ago I had a guest African dancer in my Astrology of the Chakras class and she explained that many of the movements of African dance are actually meant to facilitate the opening of the various chakras. in the form of devotional singing. money. Finding music that moves you. the planet associated with personal will and Pluto. can open the heart and decrease feelings of separation. An overactive third chakra may manifest as control issues. located around the heart and lungs. the planet associated with collective will. is governed by Mercury. If the fourth chakra is blocked we might have fears of not being loved. As these emotions are uncovered and allowed expression. Repeating Jupiter’s mantra. the planet representing all forms of communication and Chiron. and our sense of personal empowerment.” on Jupiter’s day (Thursday) also helps to create expansion of creative life force and healing of sexual issues. The issues of the third chakra have to do with power. The fourth chakra is the bridge between the lower and higher chakras. or pelvis region. One of the best ways I’ve found to accomplish this is through free form dancing or African dance forms. Any movements that contract and then expand the area of the second chakra. The key to healing the third chakra is to learn how to take power without harming others. Mars. This is the fundamental electromagnetic force that animates our bodies and when freely expressed creates magnetism.

Since many people with fifth chakra blockages have literally “lost their voice”. located at the top or crown of the head. Many of us experience this in orgasm as the kundalini moves through the lower chakras and activates the crown chakra. the sixth chakra is seen as having two poles. A blocked sixth chakra may manifest as fear of looking inside ourselves. there are many CD’s available that help the brain to access deeper states of alpha. fear of using our intuitive abilities.fifth chakra that we develop personal expression and the ability to create our own reality. Another common manifestation of a blocked fifth chakra is disbelief in our ability to create our lives the way we want them to be. This opening can be facilitated by music that evokes the imagination and opens us to the realm of non-ordinary insights. Physical symptoms could include migraines. opening the higher chakras does not mean that we need to ignore or “transcend” the lower chakras as some traditions would have us believe. singing is one of the best methods for opening the fifth chakra. As we awaken and open each of the chakras the kundalini energies rise up the spine and activate the seventh chakra leading to enlightenment or illumination. as it is Uranus that represents the universal current of energy that nourishes mind. depression and learning disabilities. Uranus represents the kundalini energy that resides at the base of the spine in the first chakra.ruled by the Sun and the Moon. is where receive the “breath of god” or universal energy. Pranayama or breathing practices help to open the seventh by expanding our capacity to channel energy through the top of the head. One of the best ways to open the sixth chakra is through meditation. or primordial sound of the universe. disbelief that we can be supported by the universe. If we have blockages in the seventh chakra this may manifest as low life force energy. the greatest way to reclaim our voice is to vibrate it with sound! Chanting sacred mantras such as OM is also beneficial as OM is seen as the fundamental. If the fifth chakra is blocked we may be overly mental and not open to the subtle intuitive information that is constantly being channeled through the higher centers. is where we express this universal energy through the vehicle of our own individuality. it requires that we work on opening up the entire chakric field so that we have the capacity to experience higher states of consciousness in a grounded or embodied way. The sun or active pole. As we chant OM we align ourselves with the creative sound that is thought to bring all material form into existence. located in the middle of the forehead between the eyes. If we grew up having no voice in the choices that were being made for us or having our choices ridiculed then eventually we stop believing in the power of our free will or voice. or going unconscious. I associate the seventh chakra with the planet Uranus. The sixth chakra. Specifically. refusal to learn from life’s experiences. The sixth chakra is associated with our higher mental abilities of introspection. located at the third eye. As we expand our capacity to channel energy we can withstand more aliveness moving through our bodies without resistance. The moon pole. Chakra system chart by astrology . is co. It may also be difficult to express our needs or the feelings that we experience emanating from the heart chakra. Traditionally. The reason we go to sleep after orgasm is that we are not used to channeling that much energy in the higher centers so we end up shutting down. visualization and accessing the imaginal realm through dreamwork. The interesting thing about the seventh chakra is that it is the polar opposite of the first chakra so we can open it from “above” or “below”. perception and intuition. In terms of healing modalities. Lastly. located at the medulla. If the fifth chakra is blocked then we might have fears of asserting or speaking up for ourselves. The crown chakra is viewed as another point of entry of life force energy and represents our connection with universal consciousness. From the Vedic perspective of India. Healing the fifth chakra is imperative if we want to open to the intuitive awareness that comes from the sixth and seventh chakras. or feeling disconnected from a sense of meaning or direction in our lives. In other words. or the inability to access inner guidance. Rather. selfexamination. body and spirit. anxiety. we reach the seventh chakra. As we open the lower chakras through movement and sound we decrease the resistance we have to being more alive and release the kundalini energy that is dormant at the base of the spine. delta and theta consciousness that are otherwise only produced through meditation practices.

Blocked chakras are often the missing link to healing the mind and emotions through talk therapy.

If the chakras still hold the residual of the original pain the result can be that no matter how much one understands the issue one never knows when that issue will be activated again therefore bringing back the pain of the issue. Saturn is considered to reside in the first or root chakra which is located at the base of the spinal column.

In my own observation of thousands of charts I know that a well-placed Saturn is unbeatable and that someone who is open to the higher teachings of this planet eventually achieves the best that the human experience has to offer.

Saturn requires the effort. depression and even hopelessness. One of the gems of Vedic astrology is the connection with the teachings of yoga. Often people who commit suicide will have a strong Saturn transit present at the moment of the decision.” Chakras can be understood as wheels or spirals of energy that can not be seen by the naked eye and are the unseen causation of the manifested physical body. The delays. which is responsible for physical survival. The energy of chakras can be off-balance. This chakra relates to our ability to be grounded.

Saturn at this time is in the sign of Libra which is a good placement.
