  1. Your Autumn Chakras - Advanced Psychology by Delcia McNeil - Psychotherapist, Supervisor, Mentor, Healer, ArtistAutumn is upon us – seems quite sudden!  Perhaps this is a time to draw back a little, take stock and prepare ourselves for more snuggly, cosy times.  Shorter days for you may mean less time
    to be out doing, though the wonderful colours of autumn certainly keep me focussing on what’s going on outside in the natural world.
    I wonder how our chakras are affected by the changing seasons?  If we think about colour this autumn-time then the golden yellows, deep rusty orange and red colours and the changing greens of the trees and foliage will energise our solar plexus, sacral, root and heart chakras. 
    The soft whites and greys, milky blues of the skies, which can be deep, deep dark blue at night, feed our crown, throat and brow chakras. 

    Next time you go outside or look through your window where you may see a plant or a tree, or when you look at a house plant, take in its colour and see how it affects your experience of your body, especially at the locations of your seven major chakras.  Breathe in the different colours,
    one at a time, and have a few moments of wonder, and maybe peace.

  2. Hello!

    Chakras and the Planets - Wikipedia

    (image source: Wikipedia – sizes are to scale but not distances)

    In a recent Chakra Psychology group we explored the relationship between the Chakras and the Planets.  As we know there are many associations for each of the seven major Chakras and the planets in our solar system are one.  Without needing to be an astrologer (astrology being a deep and complex study), we can use these associations to help us understand and support our Chakra system.  Here’s one way how …

    Firstly we look at the associated planet for each chakra.  We then look at the characteristics of each of those planets.  We then relate these characteristics back to how we are experiencing each of our chakras.  Through meditating & focusing on each chakra in turn we can hold the quality of the planet associated with it.  Eg. if we feel our self-esteem is a bit wobbly at the moment at our solar plexus chakra we can imagine the energy of Mars or the Sun and ‘feed’ that chakra with it.  Having an image of the planet helps with this intention.

     Which Chakra, which Planet?

     There are some variations between writers but largely they are consistent:

    Root:               Saturn; Earth

    Sacral:             Pluto or Moon

    Solar Plexus:    Mars or Sun

    Heart:               Venus

    Throat:             Mercury

    Brow:               Neptune or Jupiter

    Crown:            Uranus or Sun

    Characteristics of each of the planets in one word:

    Note:  it is also useful to look up the qualities of each planet in more depth if you want to add to the kind of energies you'd like to feed your chakras with (see resources below).

    Sun:                self esteem

    Moon:             feelings

    Mercury:          mentality

    Venus:             attraction

    Mars:               motivation

    Jupiter:            expansion

    Saturn:            caution

    Uranus:           eccentricity

    Neptune:         escapism

    Pluto:               compulsion
