To satisfy the Chakras and the Planetary Rulers assigned to them, we can look to the archetypes of the zodiac for guidance. Not to be taken too literally, Alchemy has some interesting points to governing our body’s rhythms, cycles, and organic pursuits to live a healthy life of vitality. When concerned with our physical wellbeing, we must consider the elements of emotion, thought through energy and consciousness.
May you engage in your subconscious understanding of the ancient archetypes, spirits, and angels, known to you through zodiac symbolism, association, and source while you read for full understanding.
This post is my own attempt to explain the energy of the human body for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. You can view the Correspondence Used in this post, in full, in the Self Healing and Spiritual Health Databases here.

Cardinal is a leader, initiator and action taker but has poor follow-through. Fixed is stubborn yet stable. Mutable is flexible and distracted.
Saturn, Ruler of the Muladhara Chakra
Rulers of Saturn are Archangel Cassiel, Ruler of the Seventh Heaven ” Encircled by fire, is surrounded by the Seraphim, Cherubim, and Ofanim”, & the Devoted Archangel Jophiel ~ Lessons of Binah
I’ve found that satisfying the Root Chakra of Saturn means balancing the Capricorn and Aquarius energies within your body. Indicated on the middle finger of Space as the Finger of Saturn. Finding ways to balance the Air and Earth in your life brings harmony to the needs of the Root Chakra of Survival. This makes literal sense as well, as we must breathe, eat, and drink. Much of the energy that we receive comes through our feet, directly from the connection to Mother Earth.
Your Body is a Temple, restored and rebuilt by what we eat, drink and breathe. Saturn limits what we do and what we think by means of preservation and survival. The strict need to be responsible to our needs is Governed by the need to Live.
May we limit the control that stress has on our own Temple, and aim to restore the spiritual roots of Self. By negotiation, you might instead clear your life of negative stresses that bog down your world and instead, focus on the things that make you feel the Capricorn’s Drive to Climb, and the Aquarius’s Will to Serve.
How do you negotiate regeneration in your own Body, or “Temple”?
- Sit up straight, relax your hands, feet, then face
- Close your eyes, or relax your muscles and speak the word “Temple” out loud
- Feel your bodies response, relax into the energy and listen to the rhythms
- Find the rhythm of your pulse, heartbeat
- Find the spark of energy and nervous system
- Then the still more subtle, synergy of cellular activity as you go deeper within the micro-world of your body
- Tell these cells to regenerate, detoxify and cleanse, to create more T cells.
- Use your heart to send out love to the body, and your body will produce a response of pleasure and production.
- You may notice the effects of this communication for minutes, hours, or days as your body begins to regenerate and heal on a cellular level.
These are the necessary components to survival, thus your Root Chakra: Eat, Sleep, Drink and Breathe Well, With the Will to Serve and Love Others Unconditionally. Your body follows your lead, you can do that consciously or unconsciously. It is simply your choice.
Jupiter, Ruler of the Svadisthana Chakra
Planetary Rulers of Jupiter: Transformation, Transmutation, and Transfiguration Archangel Sachiel, Ruler of the ‘golden’ Sixth Heaven & Joyous Archangel Anael, Ruler of the Second Heaven “composed of Water & Fire” – Lessons of Chesed
The Sacral Chakra of Jupiter, needs the flow of Pisces and Sagittarius, of Water and Fire, to work together instead of fight each other off. Not always the easiest to Balance the forces of Creation. As we can see from the Finger of Jupiter, Air. As discussed in the Sacred Sacral Chakra post, this is very entangled with the need to Create New, truly an area of life that demands Change and Transformation.
This area of the body has a lot to do with Digestion and Waste Removal, which makes literal sense as well as we take in (from below) and process this (above) to Create or Remove anything in our lives. The goal is usually to neutralize, blend, and transform.
Mars, Ruler of the Manipura Chakra
Planetary Ruler of Mars: Warrior Archangel Camael, of the Seraphim Order ~ Lessons of Geburah
The Solar Chakra of Will, ruled by Mars demands a sense of Freedom and Honor. The energies of Aries (the first in line) can be seen as the split of our Right and Left Brain Hemispheres, the battle of the Ego self and the Other selves. If we are spiritually active, then this becomes an easy bridge to cross using Logic and Reason together to solve problems. Some people, don’t actively use their Crown Chakra though. This is further complicated by the Sexual Needs and Desires of Scorpio, ruling the sex organs and sex drive. This is an intricate and delicate dance between Interactions Spirituality and Sexuality, concerns with the social nature of life in action.
Usually, it is a soul struggle to calm the needs of our Solar Chakra and spend a good portion of our lives bound by the lower chakra energy because of this. Never getting to the New Ideas of Aries from the Higher Chakras. In other words, the needs from below are never understood by the needs from above. Making this one of the most difficult chakras to Balance, suffocating our energy of related meridians and systems.
Self Healing Tips
Consider Bonding your Solar Plexus of Mars (Will) to your Crown of the Sun (Spirit) by Balancing the Chakras together, and connecting your hands to them in meditation.

Carrying Amethyst will also help with this conscious effort to connect within.
Venus, Ruler of the Anahata Chakra
Planetary Ruler of Venus: Archangel Anael, The Second Heaven of Prayers from both heaven and hell – Lessons of Netzach
Mars is always “chasing after” Venus, which makes sense to our Heart Chakra, ruled by Venus. Libra of Air and Taurus of Earth, instills that we must love unconditionally or we risk being judgemental and unaccepting of ourselves and others in our life. Our Heart Thinks for Itself, single thoughts, not divided by the brain such as the Solar Chakra. We can see that Libra energy resides in the higher Solar, lower Heart area. It is here that we can make Heart-Based Decisions, and pull ourselves up and into action to Serve Others and Ourselves in the Strength of the Bull, Taurus. Which rules our entire area of the Chest. Acting as the Field of Peaceful Love and Acceptance, or the Battle Field of Riding the Bull within.
Most don’t know the depth of the heart and the meaning behind Venus. With any study of the Qabalah, the Sephira Spheres offer us some insight into the Truth of the Heart. Venus is the symbol of Knowledge, a combination of Wisdom and Understanding, Daath. You can not love what you do not Know, you can’t understand what you do not know. And thus, the constant conundrum of the Heart lays in the pursuit of Knowledge. (THIS is what Mars is actually chasing! Thy Will to know thy Self.)
Mercury, Ruler of the Visuddha Chakra
Archangel Raphael, Ruler of the Second and Third Heavens, and the Archangels Themselves – The Third Heaven has many associations including The Abyss, the Tree of Life, The Trunk of the Tree, the Garden of Eden, among others ~ Lessons of Hod
The Throat Chakra of Mercury is as highly complex as Hermes, Enoch, and Thoth All suggest. The Left Brain crosses in the neck and operates the Right side of the body. The Right Brain crosses and operates the Left side of the body. This twist of energy can get confused, and thus the struggle to Express through our Words, or Logos is complicated by Gemini and Virgo. These are probably, the most misunderstood of all signs, go figure!
Gemini embodies the energy of the Twins, Castor and Pollux, running through each side of the body as it divides as an equal mirror. One Twin is mortal (logic), the other immortal (reason). Neither is right or wrong, good or bad. They each have their own skills, rewards, and fates met by their actions of both light and dark. Representing the duality, the Pillars, and structure. This Air sign is one of Communication, Effort, and Stability in any creative structure or building – in this case, the body as a separated whole! Virgo is one of analysis. organization and perfection. She is often described as the Virgo, Mother Mary, as the pure vessel of earthly perfection. The constellation is regarded with agriculture, development, and long term efforts to wield results and success earned with hard work and faith. Thankfully, this energy resides within the Solar Plexus Chakra of the body, feeding the higher need for balancing the duality of the physical bodies’ needs, desires, and demands. Balancing the world of Air and Earth requires patience, intelligence, and devoted efforts to the self, and the world made manifest, in the mental and spiritual fulfillment in every moment – no easy feat I know. But at least now you know too!
Moon, Ruler of the Anja Chakras
Ruler of the Moon is Archangel Gabriel, Ruler of the First Heaven, of Water and Air, and the Fifth Heaven of Watchers, a Prince of Cherubim ~ Lessons of Yesod
The Third Eye is probably the most complicated of all the Chakras. In my study, there are at least 7 Principles of our Mind that could be considered Chakras – All relating to the Third Eye Chakra of the Moon and the Crown Chakra of the Sun. These energies of the Higher Chakras work in an effort to combine Cancer (water) and Leo (fire).
The flow of our fluids, energy, and subtle bodies are working in flux with the mental and spiritual aspects of life, self, and environmental perceptions. This takes place in the Higher Heart, or Thymus Chakra area, above what we feel there is Wisdom. Below what we think, there is Understanding.
And this is the struggle of the Heart mentioned earlier.
Sun, Ruler of the Sahasrara Chakra
Ruler of the Sun is Archangel Michael, Ruler of Fourth Heaven, and the Order of Seraphim – Lessons of Kether
A lot of the time, even if we receive the signals of Water (Mother) and Fire (Father), we may not be able to fully use and understand them. This is simply why living some form of spiritual receptivity is important to the entire body, of the organs, heart, and mind as a Whole.
Governed by our spiritual knowledge of energy, mind, feelings, and activities as we perceive our experiences in life.
In combination with the worldly life of an earthly human individual, we also exist to a universal collective conscious complex of spiritual manifestation of source creation.
Why does it matter to me?
What we see is what we get.Mine experience of Daath
But what we see is based on what we know.
What we don’t know, we can’t understand.
In relevance to the topic of energy, we can attune the Spiritual Masculine to Electric Energy, in action to Create – Yang. The Spiritual Feminine to the Magnetic Energy, to manifest and Attract – Yin. The synchronicity of life is given and taken, but always in Motion. Contrary to some modern new-age ideas, you are a Whole, a complete and perfect being of Self, as is.
May the influence of another’s field act as an amplification to your own vital energies.
What Qi are you keeping and what are Ki you giving away?
“The body is made up of many chakras that parallel the Meridian paths flowing through the body. The seven main Chakras are connected by three major Nadis located parallel one another. The degree of Chakra and Meridian activity in a person’s body is dependent on the person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state of health.– Reiki Rays, How the Meridians and Chakras Work Together? (new window)
If a Chakra is damaged or blocked, it hampers the flow of Qi/Ki that is channelized into the body through the Meridians. If the Meridians have blockage or low Qi/Ki flow, one cannot be in an optimum healthy state of being. When the Qi/Ki flow is not free flowing and healthy, there is a condition of imbalance in one of the four aspects in the state of being healthy. Balance is maintained when the flow of Qi/Ki is free and strong. When it is weak or blocked; illness and imbalances occur. This is when we find unhealthiness in mind, body or spirit because of a blockage into one of these two areas.”
Navigating the Pathways of Life’s Currents
Simply the best way I have found to navigate the true healing and vitality of the Chakras has been the Qabalah.
If we place our own bodies to align with this image we find ourselves in a unique understanding of what it takes to Balance our Chakras and Energies, as well as our Life.
We must make the rounds through Yin and Yang, from Top to Bottom, and Left to Right.
The lessons of the Qabalah give us a spiritual base to work on our mental, emotional and physical lives. In benefit of course, to Love, Happiness, and Health as a result.
Remember, “Chakra” is the Sanskrit word for Wheel
The Chakras are each a vortex that takes in and gives out energy and information.
The chakras are major energy centers in the body. They are the body’s energy “organs”. They transmit and receive large amounts of energy and information to and from our environment. The chakras also send information within the body through the meridian system. They spin in a vortex or funnel shape, with the center of the funnel connecting at the spine.– ReikiRays, Chakras
