According to Indian tradition, the human energetic system runs through the spine, from the perineum (near the tailbone) to the top of the head. Along the way, it consists of a series of chakras, or energy centers, which themselves are associated with different astrological signs. Learn which chakra is connected to your Sun sign!

Aries is associated with the Manipura, or solar chakra. Located right under the ribs and traditionally visualized as being yellow, the solar chakra is the center of self-confidence, power and charisma. If these qualities sound familiar to the charming Ram, it's no surprise!
Sexy Taurus is all about the Swadisthana, or sexual chakra. The Swadisthana is related to sociability and, of course, sexuality. Colored orange and located just behind the pelvic bone, this chakra helps make the Bull particularly adept in the fine art of seduction.
Muladhara, or the root chakra, is Gemini's special spot. Located at the perineum, the root chakra is a center for physical energy, control and stability. The Twins, of course, are always seeking stability.
Like Gemini, Cancer's chakra is the Muladhara, the root chakra. This red-colored energy center is all about physical energy, control and stability -- each of which is a pertinent issue to sensitive Cancer.
With their fiery spirit and go-getter attitude, Leo is always one sexy sign. So it's no surprise to anyone who's ever loved a Leo that the Swadisthana, or sexual chakra, is the Lion's chakra. Colored orange and located just behind the pelvic bone, the Swadisthana is the center for sociability and sexuality.
Virgo's chakra is the yellow Manipura, which is located under the ribs. This solar-focused chakra is the center of self-confidence, power and charisma -- not surprising for this grounded, powerful sign.
Libra is associated with Anahata, the heart chakra. The center for both receptivity to and the giving of love, the heart chakra is located at the center of the chest and is thought of as colored green. Naturally, balanced Libra is deeply concerned with incoming and outgoing love!
Visshuda, the throat chakra, is the energy center most strongly associated with Scorpio. Responsible for intuition and contact with other worlds, this deeply mystical spot is located at the throat. No wonder passionate Scorpio knows so much.
Sagittarius is all about Ajna, the forehead chakra. Responsible for mental ability, logic, intellectual creativity and memory, Ajna helps the Archer with their amazing ability to synthesize information and ideas.
Capricorn is also associated with Ajna, the forehead chakra. Colored deep blue, this chakra is the spot where logic, intellectual creativity and memory are centered -- all of which influence Capricorn's strong mental abilities.
Intuitive Aquarius is most closely associated with Visshuda, the throat chakra. It is colored blue, providing intuitive powers and contact with other worlds.
Loving Pisces is most closely bound to Anahata, the heart chakra located at the center of the chest. It is visualized as being green and acts as a center of giving and recieving love.
