Chakras and Astrology are the greatest psychological systems with a unique and significant relationship with one another
What are Chakras?
The word Chakra is derived from the Sanskrit language which means “wheels”. Chakras run from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. These Chakras from the centre of energy of our body and are responsible for maintaining a spiritual, mental, and physical balance.
Relationship between chakras and zodiac signs
The relationship between chakras and the planets or the cosmic zodiacs is that the seven planets govern the functioning of the seven chakras in the human body. One of the seven planets rules each chakra. As a result, every chakra displays the nature of its ruling planet. Another vital element connected to this is the birth chart. The birth chart is formulated based on the time and date one is born and depicts how the planets define our characteristics and affect our chakras, hence playing the most significant role in astrology. For example, if someone has a malefic Saturn placement in his or her birth chart, then the person will only get negative cosmic energy from the planet, whereas if a person has benefic Saturn placement, then Saturn will send benefic cosmic radiations.
How does each Chakra affect us?
There are seven different chakras in our body, each playing a significant role in our life: Mooldhara is the first chakra that is at the base of the spinal cord. The planet Mars rules this chakra and it represents survival, support, and stability.

The Chakra system is one of the oldest systems of body healing that originated in India around the Vedas. The chakras have the power and ultimate pure healing energy that controls every part of our body and influences every area of our lives. Depending upon the birth chart, surroundings, situations, and energies that an individual is experiencing, the Chakras can get clogged. One starts to feel less vital and energetic, both in terms of physical & emotional aspects if even one of the Chakras gets blocked. Chakra healing refers to cleansing or unblocking the 7 Chakras and reviving the flow of energy. To live a sound and happy life, its crucial to keep the 7 Chakras in the human body active
