Chakras And Astrology
Chakras in Sanskrit mean "wheels” , and refer to the energy centers of the human body. There are 7 chakras, they are energetic centers connected to the major human functions.
Each Planet rules a Chakra, then the nature of the planet expresses itself through the duality of the masculine and feminine through the astrological signs.
