The Planets in your Body

Today we learn where the planets live inside of us.  The seven heavenly bodies as perceived by the ancients in the night sky (before the discovery of the outer planets i.e Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) correspond to seven centers in the human body commonly known as chakras.

Ok so before you go getting suspicious about the decided order of these planets in the body-

-consider just a few very interesting facts.

Each of these planets corresponds to a specific metal in the practice of alchemy.  Notice that the above list is the exact reverse order of the planets as pictured in the body.

The first metal, lead (corresponding to Saturn) is the LEAST conductive of electricity.

relax Larry I’m getting to the point!

The next metal tin (for Jupiter) is a little MORE conductive, followed by iron (Mars) even a little MORE…

In fact the metals are in the exact order of how electrically conductive they are ending with silver (the Moon) which is the MOST conductive of them all.

We are talking about electricity, we are talking about energy, and how it moves through the body.

It’s the same thing that the caduceus is talking about

And here is another fact to make us feel comfortable with the placement of the planets in the body:  common phrases we use every day.

In Casablanca when Bogart’s character says “I stick my neck out for nobody” he is referring to never letting himself be vulnerable (Venus) and not being willing to help anyone else (Venus), a character trait that goes a full 180 by the time we arrive at the dramatic end.  Venus’s energy center is in the neck, a very vulnerable part of the body.  It is where are voice is, which can do so much for others.

Opposite of this is Mars, which lives in our solar plexus.

we talk about “core strength”, something Bruce Lee believed in.  Mars is located in our solar plexus.

How about Jupiter, the planet of faith, located in our gut?

and often we do have to “go with our gut”

How about the Sun in the place of the heart?

does this image “warm your heart?”

How about Mercury, the trickster, in the space of the brain and the visual cortex?

“optical illusions” make us perceive things not as they are (this image is not really moving)

The Moon is at the top of the head corresponding to “mind”.  The latin word for mind is “mentis” hence our word “mental” but also the less often considered connection to “menses” which ties us straight to the Moon with her 28 day cycle.

that gives us something “to reflect on”…

And then we have Saturn, at our base.

Saturn with it’s heaviness reminds us how good it is to be “grounded” and “anchored”

In the next post we will get further into this by examining the value in uniting these centers from top to bottom, as well as discussing how the endocrine system is involved.

      Yes- this is the original lineup of planets before the discoveries of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. These 3 planets correspond respectively to Aquarius (original ruler Saturn), Pisces (original ruler Jupiter) and Scorpio (original ruler Mars). Those planets had dual rulerships with those signs. As for the purpose of this examination of the chakras- it is interesting to meditate on the different dimensions these newer planets might bring. For instance, Pluto as the Mars chakra- but maybe with a twist- maybe a little deeper and more emotional? Or for instance Neptune, connected to the 2nd chakra where most of the immune system is- I would bet it is also connected to the Thymus gland (or high heart chakra). And Uranus I would think has a lot to do with the electricity itself, or maybe the movement of the electricity (grounded with Saturn at the base of the body).. Just thoughts. Thanks for the question!
