Planets linked to Swadhisthana

Planets linked to Swadhisthana

According to historical astrological tradition, the classical seven chakras of the human body have been related to the seven classic planets for millennia, and according to Vedic astrology, the nine planets have a connection with the major eight chakras. Even more planets are linked to the chakras in modern Western astrology, including those discovered in contemporary history. As a result, there is a long legacy of connection between the planets and the chakras in all astrological systems and traditions across the world.

Planets in a birth chart represent the baby’s potential qualities and energies, and our chakra system is made up of many latent qualities and energy centers that have been linked to planets since antiquity. Since ancient times, the planets visible to the naked eye in our solar system have been regarded as gods, ruling over human affairs ranging from medicine to politics and all aspects of people’s lives. It is not surprising then that they are linked to various body systems. In Western astrology, they are linked to various organs and functions of the body, and in Vedic astrology, they are similarly linked to our chakras.

This long-held link is now explained by modern science so that we are made up of the same elements as the planets. They are no distant objects in the sky with no connection to human life, but as astrological research has revealed, they are indicators of inner motivations and energies and their dynamics in our lives, qualities, and attributes, just in the same way our dynamic energy vortexes (chakras) work in our bodies too. Therefore, rather than a link between planets and chakras, we can refer to it as a similarity in principles, energies, and patterns.

Planetary remedies have long been used by Vedic astrology to help balance our chakras because each dynamism both above and below (sky and earth) are intrinsically connected and show up in our birth chart. Religious rituals are performed in Hinduism to appease these dynamic forces or energies, which are linked to gods and goddesses ruled by these planets so that they can be integrated into our lives in congruence. Similarly, in Western astrology, the mythology of the gods and goddesses associated with the planets is linked to depict the significance and attributes of each planet and their respective energies.

For the first time in recorded history, scientific astrological research in the last century (Gauquelin et al.) demonstrates the validity of astrological pointers in sketching the personal traits of a person. Similarly, it has long been established that the balance or imbalance of our chakras derives from various traits and outcomes in the lives of individuals. In both cases, there is solid enough scientific background to work with both components (chakras and planets) in combination.

Having said that, there are several methods for balancing our energy vortexes (chakras) by paying attention to the corresponding energy patterns (planets). The western astrologer will analyze the condition of the planet associated with the chakra in the birth chart to determine how to balance its natural energies in such a way that the related chakra energy is restored. By analyzing the chakras and their ruling planet, one may determine the source of one’s life’s highs and lows.

On the other hand, the Vedic astrologer will prescribe religious remedies such as planetary pujas to the different Hindu deities associated with each planet in order to appease these energies and, in the same way, bring these forces into harmony so that they can be favorable for the native rather than a hurdle on the path with the clearance of any chakra imbalance related to the associated planet and deity.

The analysis of the natal chart to determine how these planets are placed and combined is common in both systems (vedic and western) so that any imbalance in the chart can be corrected accordingly using the methods described above. Being aware of the nature and qualities of the planets associated with the chakras, as well as cultivating these qualities in ourselves in their positive manifestation, helps to bring our chakras into balance. For this, we must first look which planets are linked with their related chakras and what their symbolism involves.

The Moon is the ruling planet of the Sacral (Swadhisthana) Chakra. Our emotions like the tides of the sea raised up by the phases of the Moon, as well as all our body fluids and flows of energies, are astrologically drawn by the Moon. It is in the Sacral chakra where all the range of emotions and how we interact and react to self, others and life is operated from. This energy vortex is the seat of the self and the Moon likewise is the seat of the spirit. It is in Swadhisthana where we start to get involved with everyone and everything around us.

Anyone who has been closely involved with a baby will known that babies are responsive beings from the word go. They respond to emotional expressions like a beaming smile within the few weeks of life. Emotions such as joy, disgust, anger and sadness can be reacted to and expressed within the first three months. Babies are born with these emotional abilities to help them survive by forming strong bonds with their caregivers. Whatever the exact mechanisms occurring during babyhood, the Moon describes the way in which the individual habitually reacts and responds throughout life. Such reactions are not only very immediate, they are automatic and unconscious and are thus almost instinctive.

Swadhisthana chakra is associated to the early stages of emotional development and the behavioral patterns we form from there. The Moon represents the mother and baby in all of us. This description fits the woman who gave birth to us, as
well as other subsequent caretaking figures in our childhood, and especially those who taught us about women and mothering. Mother is not only the life-giver but potentially the one who can take life away. She is a provider of milk, comfort, unconditional love, containment and safety, and on the other hand, she is also the one who can withhold those things: the devourer, destroyer and baby-eater. As a child, one learns the signals to ensure that his needs are met. In adulthood, habits, reactions, and body language continue to maintain the same pattern.

Similarly, the placement of the natal Moon per sign, house and aspects (angles) sketches how we are emotionally wired based in how our needs have been meet or not in early life, and how we react and involve with others. It also indicates our manner to provide to others in order to bring safety and protection to them. The Moon describes what we are likely to feel about given situations (for example, whether we think them dangerous) and how we react and do in those situations in order to keep ourselves and others safe. As Swadhisthana is our emotional hub in the energetic body so is the Moon in our natal chart. Our behavior and habits, our moods and feelings, and our overall receptivity is all about our lunar energies.

When the Moon is not favorable placed in the natal chart, it is an indication of an imbalance at Swadhisthana chakra. It can point out an underactive Sacral chakra where our emotions are sort of stuck, or an overactive Sacral chakra where we tend to be impulsive or impatient with self and others. In any case, an imbalance in Swadhisthana is always reflected by an afflicted Moon at birth and vice versa, bringing us the opportunity to work with our innermost energies, our inner child.

As we have seen a healthy chakra functioning in a balanced way indicates we have our planetary energies working productively for our development, and vice versa: an unfavorable positioned Moon leads to an imbalanced Swadhisthana.
