Chakras are the energy centers in our body. The word chakra means wheel.. We have seven main chakras and each chakra is located on a plexus center of a network of nerves. These energy centers are responsible for keeping our spiritual , physical and mental aspects in balance. This subtle system is the same in every human. What is different is how we use it and with what quality. Each chakra is ruled by a planet. Chakras display the nature and characteristics of their ruling planets. Birth charts, which are formulated according to our date and time of birth, show the aspects the planets were in when we were born and how they relate with each other. While our birth chart describes our spiritual, physical and mental aspects, it also helps us see how the planets shape us and affect our chakras and energy body. The seven chakras within us is like a reflection of the entire solar system. As above so below In one sense, humans are a microcosmos of the macrocosmos. Therefore, universal energies symbolized with those of the solar system exist within us too..
