A Chakra Meditation to Attune You to Life’s Current Chaos
With all that is going on at this time with the COVID-19 pandemic, many might feel lost and frightened about what is to come. Often in times of collective trauma, there is no easy or simple solution, especially when the compass of consciousness seems to turn with no end in sight. On the astrology side, 2020 is a time of rapid change due to a series of “Great Conjunctions” that began with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn on January 12, steering us into the current storm.
There are several more of these alignments this year; including a Jupiter and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on April 4, June 30, and November 12; as well as a pivotal Jupiter and Saturn conjunction in Aquarius on December 21. All combined, these transits purge current bureaucratic systems by identifying the true intentions of powerful leaders, which will require the masses to wake up to a new way of existence—a new life.
When profound and social change is the name of the game, meditation and mantras for each sign can be incredible resources to center and strengthen your resolve. Read your sun, moon, and rising signs:
You are a sign of the solar plexus chakra (Manipura), which helps the process of detox, regulates the immune system, and highlights self-esteem and willpower. While meditating, focusing on a bright loving yellow light will balance your overall energy.
Mantra: I am a brilliant beam of light. I am patient and focused. I am willing to learn something new.
You are a sign of the heart chakra (Anahata), meaning that self-care is a very important practice for you. Connect with it by envisioning a bright green light surrounding your chest that extends into your throat region.
Mantra: I have everything I need. My loved ones and I are protected.
You are ruled by the throat chakra (Vissudha), as you very much communicate to the world. Right now, this is a center of great confusion for many, which means it is your time to shine. Use this power by visualizing a blue light surrounding your throat center.
Mantra: My intellect is my currency. I communicate my voice to the world.
You are influenced deeply by the sixth chakra (Ajna), which rules your third eye center. You’re an extremely intuitive individual who is picking up on the vibrations of the world beyond words and understanding. This can be incredibly draining, so it is a good time to protect your energy by attuning to any shades of purple.
Mantra: I feel completely safe in my own skin. I allow myself to flow with the changes around me.
Your sign is also influenced by the sixth chakra (Ajna), reflecting into your third eye of imagination. You are easily able to express the visions that fire up your mind, and this visionary creativity is exactly what you need to tap into right now by meditating on the color indigo.
Mantra: I will achieve anything I set my mind to. My heart is my most beautiful asset.
You’re ruled by the throat chakra (Vissudha), which can be tricky, especially if you are overly critical of yourself. As you analyze what is going on, remember you are a voice of reason for others as well. Imagine a blue light surrounding your throat, helping you to speak up when in need of expression.
Mantra: I trust that I have all that I need right now. I live in the present moment.
Your ruling chakra is the heart center (Anahata), which strives to balance your loving relationships. The present can be tough if you are separated from your loved ones or have any unresolved partnership issues. Turn the energy around by focusing on a beautiful green light surrounding your entire body with compassion and warmth.
Mantra: I love with my full heart. I am absolute beauty and wisdom.
Your sign is associated with both, the third chakra (Manipura), associated with adrenals and pancreas, and the root chakra (Svadhisthana), related to the reproductive organs. As the source of life, the pelvis is in a constant influx of life, death, and rebirth; making it important to focus on orange light around this body center to help with healing.
Mantra: I feel safe, empowered, and completely loved. There is enough to go around for everyone.
You’re ruled by the second chakra (Svadhisthana), ruling the reproductive organs and creative center of the body. This is a really imperative time to expand your vision and goals as an effective community leader. You can envision a bright orange light around your hip region while tapping into a feeling of gratitude for the insights headed your way.
Mantra: I am allowed to take up space. I am a generous soul.
Your sign is very much influenced by the first chakra (Muladhara), representing the root system. This influences your bones, muscles, and glands. Envisioning a red light around your sacrum will ground the energy of your entire body.
Mantra: I utilize what I already understand. I hold compassion for the community through my leadership.
You are traditionally ruled by the first chakra (Muladhara), which represents grounding as it relates to the root energy of your entire body. You can work with the color red in fun and inventive ways either through vision meditations or in your current wardrobe as well.
Mantra: I know I can do this! I see things before they occur.
You are traditionally ruled by the second chakra (Svadhisthana), which influences your creative center. However, the current transits hint to protecting your seventh chakra (Sahasrara) of divine consciousness. Connect to it by imagining a violet light surrounding your entire crown space guiding you along the way.
Mantra: I am a channel of the divine spirit. I am beyond my own body.
