I’m going to relate the Sacral Chakra (energy medicine) to the Elemental framework (science) of our Universe (astrology) so that you can see just how far the influences of energy are within (micro) and outside (macro) of the body. These are environmental influences from your surroundings, culture, imagination, and mystic awareness, to the subconscious influences on us and in our bodies and minds. How you perceive your outside world is based upon your inner conceptions, design, and beliefs. Internally with your thoughts and emotions over the experiences of time.
Expansive Jupiter Rules the Sacral Chakra
Jupiter is the planet of Growth, Learning, Expanding and Good Fortune for the future. Always encouraging reward for forwarding progress. This energy is uplifting and forgiving, flexible, easily cut through. Jupiter is for the betterment of what is to come next, from the growth and expression of embracing the new or changing the old. The planet itself is gassy, massive, and forever changing in form and structure. In and of itself this planet it is flexible and forever changing.
The Tarot cards for Jupiter are the Wheel of Fortune (card 10 in major arcana tarot), and/or the Hierophant (card 5 in major arcana tarot). Interestingly enough Jupiter is actually the 5th planet from the Sun.
In numerology, the number 5 is usually described as Creation! Creative drive challenges us and our struggles with self-conflict. The number Five is (usually) more chaotic and mystic than structured or organized. The star is the symbol of the number 5. In most occult religions, symbols, and texts that have to do with Creation, Death, or Destruction there can be found the symbol of the star. This is also the “design” that the moon makes if you take the points of its orbit over time, it has 5 points because of the earth’s wobble. The moon and its cycles heavily influence our emotions and hormones, which regulate our body in the form of feelings, and eventually thoughts. We’ll see how this relates further into Astrology, Alchemy, and Science.
The signs associated with the Sacral Chakra of Jupiter is Sagittarius (Related Archetypes: The Philosopher, Explorer, Wise Teacher). And Pisces (Related Archetypes: The Compassionate, Mystic, Dreamer). The personality of these signs are similar in some ways in that they are playful signs, adventurous, carefree and enjoy a good time. They are a beautiful combination of Fire and Water elements as well as the Masculine and Feminine energies. Forever friends, the Sagittarius and the Pisces.
The Tarot card for Sagittarius is Temperance, which signifies the balance and harmony of life and it’s duality. Temperance is the 14th card, which comes to another 5. Pisces is Tarot card is the Moon (card 18), this personality is the biggest dreamer of all the signs at the end of the zodiac and rules the 12th house (the death before the rebirth into 1st house)!
This leads us into the more spiritual aspect of our energetic natural bodies and our beliefs…
Sacral Healing with the Help of Jupiter
When I began this healing journey I had some darker aspects of my psychic awareness unfold before me in a very strange way. For a time I felt overwhelmed in a dark place, tapping into layers of my subconscious I had long forgotten. Aspects of my childhood seemed ‘unreal’ as I remembered my dreams, visions, and mental disassociation when I was in adolescence.
As I worked through my Root Chakra healing I recovered a huge array of feelings, thoughts, memories, visions, fantasies, dreams, and associations. It took me over a month of intense personal and relationship deliberation, discernment and mindful awareness. At times I would drift in and out of these fantasies as the characters of my inner subconscious layers revealed themselves again from my past.
I began to accept these new aspects of my inner world and realize the synchronicity between them. In both my current reality and outer world life and environment. Within my understanding of Esoteric teachings, Theology, Philosophy, Religions and various other ancient teachings of a large variety- I continued to really struggle with duality.
Raised Christian under the belief of God, installments of the belief in the angles and the demons. The God, the Devil, and all the world’s Creatures (and spirits) are presented in the form of duality here on Earth in a 3D reality. That of the feminine and masculine, good and bad, right and wrong, left and right, logic and imagined. Not to mention the mirrored structure of our bodies. It was a constant battle within my mind and body, which means that I was seeing the world too black and white. What’s a world without color? What is a mind without understanding?
As I began to seek out positive solutions for my mental health, I struggled with the thoughts of Darkness. Within the exploration of one’s past, comes the hauntings and worries of your varied paths to fortune.
I realize that the process of emotional wellness in relation to physical and mental health is a spiritual influence on the condition of your soul within this life.
Read this however suits you, take it or leave it: I think there is a link to health and vitality within the balance of body, mind, and soul. That the thread between that is the spirit, life force, by due process of nature, energy, and connection. This is essentially ruled physically as our skin separating the “within us” from the “outside of us”. The skin is interesting ruled by Saturn, the planet of Authority, Responsibility and Time. (Saturn rules the Root Chakra of Survival, Singularity, and the Force of Life.)
I find the title to my post for the Root Charka: The Red Dirt Road is interesting when you consider the idea of “The Hero’s Journey”. One must go through unimaginable trouble to get to his destiny. Other stories related to this would be The Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, Alice in Wonderland, and even the Sword In the Stone. Within one’s destiny (or fate?), there are a variety of ways to achieve what you want in life. To Go Home, to Join the Force, to Command Your Life, to Rejoin or find a Lover, or Save the World. If you truly desire this within your life then you indeed are on a path of purpose within yourself, your energy, your emotions. I have a sense that the Spirit, expressed through intuition and will, are the product of your need for survival (root, prana, or qi, life force). The desire to create (sacral, jing, creative force), is the grand combination that propels you forward in your life as you grow.
When considering the health of your Sacral Chakra, you will find yourself in the mists of chaotic battles within yourself. The battles of the angles and demons within your mind, arguing about what you should or shouldn’t do in your life.
Why do we argue with ourselves?
Most of the time it’s because we want something, we think or are told, that we can’t have it for some relatable, emotional reason. We struggle to achieve that which we want while abiding to other’s emotions and reasoning. Or we struggle to let go of that want, usually for the sacrifice of what someone else wants. The struggle to emerge from the battle is won within the Solar Plexus Chakra. This is the 3rd chakra, which is the home of the ego, will, and choices-already-made, morals, and experiences. This chakra’s energy is moving up and away from the care of survival alone and into a place of self-trust and confidence of what you are Creating for Yourself with your Sacral chakra.
Before we go too far into the complexity of identity, ego, self, and sacrifice we must look down, back, and into our past to reconcile with our needs and wants. If we know what we need to survive then we can accurately prepare ourselves for health and wellness and avoid danger. Which means if we know what we want then we can accurately prepare ourselves with the tools, skills, and abilities we need to accurately create our masterpiece in life. Alternatively, if we do not have the will to accomplish these things then our bodies suffer the consequences of this until we return ourselves to health.
Returning yourself back to health and wellness is first admitting that you are ill, are in pain, or are weak. Then you identify with the most obvious symptoms in the hope of realizing the cause of these serious effects on your wellbeing. Then, we start to uncover the real cause and it’s often emotionally troublesome! So we worry and fear our own structure, nature, and mind. Which depletes the energy systems of our root and sacral chakras!
Our Qi and Jing are drained and we wonder why when we doubt our decisions and choices in life, that we have writer’s block, artists drop their pens or musicians fail to play their music. When we are deprived of our reasons to live we fail to have free will, free thought, or emotional freedom. Which derails your soul from its destiny, and blocks the spirit from driving you forward.
Jupiter’s primal element is Tin.
Tin resists oxygen and water but dissolves in acids and bases. It can be cut through rather easily, as well as melted or molded. Interesting also, tin has 50 protons and 50 neutrons. Our most common use of tin in our outside lives is found in your kitchen, Tinfoil Wrapping! Our uses of tin foil are effectively what tin is most commonly used for, covering other metals, materials or organic products to protect them from erosion and corruption! Tin very rarely occurs free in nature. The chief ore is cassiterite (SnO2).
I find the spiritual guidance of Archangel Zadkiel (or Archangel Sachiel) inspiring to these scientific identifications of tin. Related to the expansive, flexible, malleable qualities of Jupiter. These Angels are helpful guides through the following: family affairs, legal matters, remembering, healing of the mind, fact, clear memories, transmutation, governing social relations, prestige, recovery.
Throughout my various searchings for new knowledge about the body, mind, and love, connecting life with our physicality… I continue to find strong ties between Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon. Cassiterite is the primary source for tin. Angelic doctrines teach that Archangel Cassiel brought us “gifts” from the 7th Heaven. This Angel Cassiel is all about transitions, solitude, and at times tears and sorrow. At your weakest points, there is a hidden strength to continue on after a loss. Allowing a transition from being weak to being strong. Or sometimes, from being strong in the wrong ways, to being weak to the negativity that holds you back. This kind of energy is highly related to the cycles, transitions, and fluids, the pure cleansing of life. A continuous effort of holding on to what you love is letting go of what you don’t.
In this same way, I encourage you to clear your mind’s eye of your own inner confusion about what you are holding onto, for who, and why.
The Root Chakra (the skin, and the spleen) have spiritual connections to the 3rd Eye as a chakra. Many think the 3rd eye is the Pineal Gland in the center of our brains. The Pineal Gland is mostly still a mystery to us scientifically. What we do know is that the Pineal Gland regulates our circadian rhythms, by producing the hormone melatonin. And we assume it has a lot to do with dreams and REM sleep cycles. This can definitely link to the Moon’s influence, once again.
Our internal clock governs our daily cycles of energy through the meridians every day. Without the proper sleep schedule, you get out of sync with your bodies natural rhythms. Organs function at the wrong times, causing your body to misfire your needs for survival, and sending you into a need to restore. This depletes your desire to create. Remember that Jupiter is that of expansion and fortune, where Saturn is the Father of Time and responsibility. (Sound familiar to any sleepless moms and dads out there?)
To fully balance our thoughts (patterns, ideas, desire, Jupiter) and feelings (emotions, hormones, the Moon), within the Sacral Chakra we must be able to clearly see within ourselves. (Saturn) free of our own confusion and brain fog (3rd Eye, vision). Chaos created mostly by neglecting our wants or needs (each to their own battle with duality). In this way our internal vision, pure Cassiterite (from Archangel Cassiel) is ‘brought down from the 7th heaven (7th chakra is the crown). Once we have pure Cassiterite, through our Inner Vision, we have what we need to ‘create’ Tin! Then we can use Tin and Copper to create Bronze!
Now, we’re well on our way to creating Gold!
