The Relationship Between the Chakras and the Zodiac

the chakras and the zodiac

The chakras are energy centers located throughout both the physical and spiritual bodies. Furthermore, these energy centers link the mind and body with the healing energy of prana or universal energy. The energy of the earth, the stars and even by spirits affect the chakras. In this way, each zodiac sign can be related to the power of a single chakra. Through the chakras, each zodiac sign can find the energy to express both its power and weaknesses.

The Powerful Chakra of Each Zodiac Sign

The association of the Chakras with the art of alchemy dates back centuries when the esoteric philosophies of India combined with the occult sciences of Europe.

Each of the seven chakras relates to a planet or the rulers of each Zodiac Sign. In that way, each Chakra corresponds to a crystal and metal which corresponds to the planet and the Zodiac sign.
