Planetary influences on chakra system

Introduction to the chakra system

chakra system

The human energetic system is mainly composed of a vertical energetic axis which runs through our spine from the perineum (the region between the genitals and the anus), up to the top of our head. This is our main energetic channel and it is called in India the Sushumna Nadi. On this channel, at different levels there are seven energetic centers (named chakras) that represent our link to the "reality" and the universe(s). They are located as shown in the image on the right.

Chakra system chart by astrology

One can identify the nodal axis with Sushumna Nadi, the energetic central channel that runs through our spine. On this channel, the six chakras are projected at different levels as shown in the image on the left. The seventh chakra, the crown chakra, called Sahasrara chakra is not shown in the natal chart, it couldn't be, as it doesn't relate with the material level, only with the higher spiritual worlds. It is transcendental and represents our link to the Divinity.

The other six chakras will be projected on the nodes' axis as follows:

1. Muladhara chakra or the root chakra will be projected at a distance of 30 degrees from the South Node (SN) on both sides.

2. Swadisthana chakra or the sexual chakra will be projected from 30 degrees to 60 degrees from the SN on both sides.

3. Manipura chakra or the solar chakra will be projected from 60 degrees to 90 degrees from the SN on both sides.

4. Anahata chakra or the heart chakra will be projected from 90 to 120 degrees from the SN or from 90 to 60 degrees from the North Node (NN) on both sides.

5. Visshuda chakra or the throat chakra will be projected from 60 to 30 degrees from the NN on both sides.

6. Ajna chakra or the forehead chakra will be projected from 30 degrees to the NN.

Planets that are in the projection area of one chakra will influence that chakra according to their nature and the side of the nodal axis where they are located. Those on the left side (waxing from the SN) will influence the receptive part and the function of that chakra, while those on the right will influence the emissive part and function of that chakra. In order to understand this better, an esoteric study of the chakras would be required.

the Seven chakras system

quick overview of each chakra's activity/influence


receptive side / energy received emissive side / controlled energy
the root chakra or Muladhara physical, material energy controlled energy, stability
the sexual chakra or Swadisthana sociability, sexual potential seduction, sexual energy control
the solar chakra or Manipura what gives you self confidence will power, perseverance, charisma
the heart chakra or Anahata what you like, love received love emitted
the throat chakra or Visshuda passive intuition active intuition and contact to other worlds
the forehead chakra or Ajna> mental interest, analysis, memory logics, mental creativity, synthesis
the crown chakra or Sahasrara transcendence - link to the spiritual worlds, to GOD

Table with the planetary influences on the chakra system:

PLANET effect on the chakras when it is in the left side of the nodes' axis, influencing the receptive function of the chakra effect on the chakras when it is in the right side of the nodes' axis, influencing the emissive function of the chakra
SUN lots of high quality energy on that level both natally and received from the others in life increased control, mastery of that level
MOON increased receptivity on that level, the native easily absorbs energies and information from the other or from the nature deep feelings and a clear inner perspective on the energies of that level
MERCURY mental receptivity on that level, the native is easily energized, fascinated by specific information, either read or heard from others mental control, understanding, mastery of that level
VENUS interests / hobbies / passion on that level, meetings of persons that offer him/her psychological support, the feeling of being loved seduction power, erotism, the successful use of the feelings in order to gain control on that level
MARS energy, dynamism, activity on that level, courageous friends courage, dynamic action, good energetic control
JUPITER lots of energy and resources, open interest on the level, exuberance, power of accumulation of energy, wise, spiritual use of that energy
SATURN few resources and lack of energy very controlled manifestations, contracture, strategy, economy
URANUS energy outbursts alternating with low level energy, fluctuations spiritual, higher consciousness of the energy on that level
NEPTUNE low physical energy, but good contact with the other worlds spiritual use of the energy on that level
PLUTO passion, deep understanding and feeling of the energy on that level transformative potential, occult interests and use of the energy

In this kind of spiritual astrology the Ascendant, the Medium Coeli and the astrological houses are unimportant because in the true spirituality it doesn't matter WHAT one does, but rather HOW one does it. That's why the planets (the inner energies of the being) are important and not the house cusps.

Ideal chakra chart

There is an archetypal activation of all chakras, placing the Moon's Nodes in their domicile on the 0 Capricorn-0 Cancer axis and considering the influence of each sign ruler on the chakra situated at its correspondent level.

We may see in the below images the ideal planetary influences on the chakras.

The above image could be redesigned as follows, in order to get it more like the traditional representation of the chakras (the planets are not represented anymore, but you certainly know which planet rules each sign).

chakras system chart

A very interesting exercise is to look for persons who have planets influencing their chakras as in this ideal chart. You will notice good functioning of that chakra. For instance Hitler and Stalin had Saturn activating the right side of their Ajna chakra, that's why they were almost geniuses in what they did. (the malefic side, though) Mircea Eliade, a world renowned scientist who wrote a very extensive book on the history of the religions had in his natal chart Jupiter activating the left side of the Ajna chakra, the mental energetic center, offering him a outstanding memory and intellectual analysis capacity (Jupiter is also about religions).

And so on. There is no limitation in the study of the planets' influence on the chakras.

You will find very interesting perspective when analyzing the transiting planets' or the eclipses' influence on a person, you may even apply this in the synastry study, revealing hidden information on the subtle energetic influence of one person on the other.

the Synastry and the chakra chart:

Person A's planet on the right side of a chakra of person B, means that A is helping B to become more active, is stimulating B (which can be both in good or bad). If A's planet is on the left side of a chakra of B, means that A is actually giving B something that B is receptive at (on that level; and it can be also a good thing or a bad thing).

Consider always the North Node position of a person in the other person's chart. Similar as in synastries, where the ascendant's position of one person in the other chart indicates the house on which the first person is most influential, the chakra activated by one person's NN in the other person's natal chart is the most important level of the relationship.
You will quickly notice that if A's NN is on the right side of a chakra of B, then B's NN is on the left side of the same chakra, but of A. It means that in a relationship there is always a receiver-sender relationship (on the same level, i.e. chakra), that represents the base of the connection of the two persons.
As a rule of the thumb, in a sentimental relationship there is always someone who loves more, and the other one who let him/herself be loved.

the North Node transits and the chakra chart:

Consider also the North Node transits around the zodiac, passing through the 12 natal projection regions of the 6 chakras.
Each transit lasts for approx. 1,551 years, as the entire cycle of the nodes lasts 18,614 years, representing a full development and evolution cycle.

--- beginning of the first nodal cycle ---

0-1,55 years: the neurological-motor development of the baby: its first successes (learning the basics, understanding and acquirement of the basis of the language, walking, playing, eating) - the transiting North Node activates the receptive side of the forehead chakra, Ajna.
1,55 - 3,1 years: the child starts talking articulated phrases, his thinking is mostly intuitive, not logical - the transiting North Node activates the receptive side of the throat chakra, Visshuda.
3,1 - 4,65 years: the child starts having intense feelings to the mother, the other members of the family, to other children - the transiting North Node activates the receptive side of the chest chakra, Anahata
4,65 - 6,2 years: the child gets a stronger understanding of its own individuality, it is the age of "I want that! and I want it now!" - the transiting North Node activates the receptive side of the solar plexus chakra, Manipura
6,2 - 7,75 years: the child starts the socializing process, he goes to school, gets in contact with many other children of his age, learns the rules of social behavior - the transiting North Node activates the receptive side of the social, sexual chakra, Swadisthana
7,75 - 9,31 years: the child has a lot of physical energy, loves running around, and it is very difficult to have him still - the transiting North Node activates the receptive side of the root chakra, Muladhara
9,31 - 10,86 years: the child learns to put his physical energy into practical purposes, such as organized sports, starts doing little things in the house (if parents teach him to do so) - the transiting North Node activates the emissive, active side of the root chakra, Muladhara
10,86 - 12,41 years: the children become interested in the opposite sex, the girls have their first menstruation, the children socialize a lot the transiting North Node activates the emissive, active side of the sexual chakra, Swadisthana
12,41 - 13,96 years: the children face very important individualization (personality) problems - typical teenager problems, they learn how to control their needs, start claiming authority - the transiting North Node activates the emissive, active side of the solar plexus chakra, Manipura
13,96 - 15,51 years: the first love experience; whether real or imaginary love, the teenagers start thinking in terms of feelings: the transiting North Node activates the emissive, active side of the chest, heart chakra, Anahata
15,51 - 17,06 years: the teenagers start understanding beyond the words and reality, they get a better intuitive image of the universe - the transiting North Node activates the emissive, active side of the throat chakra, Visshuda
17,06 - 18,61 years: the most mentally creative period of life; they say that many genial ideas were born in persons of this age; it is sure however that the young persons start having their own understanding on the reality, and also start exposing their ideas to the others.

--- the first nodal cycle is over ---

The next ones follow the same pattern, although on a very different level.
