There are seven "planets" in astrological magic and healing: the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter & Saturn. Each has its own energy, and we can work with these planets when the time is right to stimulate our lives through the Chakra System. While the associations in this list aren't definitive, I use them myself with good results:
- Vitality: Mars & The Root Chakra
- Passion: Mercury & The Sacral Chakra
- Personal Power: Jupiter & The Solar Plexus Chakra
- Love: Venus & The Heart Chakra
- Honesty: Scorpio (Pluto)& the Throat Chakra
- Vision: Chiron & The Brow Chakra
- Intuition: The Moon & The Crown Chakra
Follow this link for an earlier post on the Chakras & the Planets, or watch to my latest VLOG below for a meditation on energy, initiative and Mars. This month, and today in particular, we are working with Aries to Kickstart the Astrological Year. Now would also be a good time to revisit worthwhile resolutions, as discussed in my blog post last week.
The following is a meditation that we can use on Tuesday mornings to make the most of this fiery energy, especially now that the Sun is in Aries. While Mars does have something of a reputation as a hothead, we can combine the red planet's energy with Mother Earth's to achieve a bit of balance. Please share your thoughts below! I'm still new to video blogging; all suggestions are welcome (even "shut the door Regina!" LOL)
A Meditation for Physical & Emotional Vitality
I worked on another version where we connect with a power animal and ask it join us during the month of Aries. If you'd like to incorporate this, stay with the meditation for an extra minute and visualise a Ram appearing. You could visualise yourself sitting on the Ram's back and holding on for dear life as it rushes off to embrace the day, full of excitement and drive! If you are wondering, the Ram is the symbol for Aries.
Hope you enjoyed reading this =)
