Understanding Chakras - Sacral Chakra
Your chakras are seven rotating points of energy on your body. The energy field given off by these seven points collectively makes up your aura.
Your second or sacral chakra is located just behind and below your belly button. You can stimulate it manually by rubbing the area just below your belly button or rubbing on your lower back.
The color associated to this chakra is orange and the symbol associated to this chakra looks like this.
The planet for this chakra is the moon, which also governs emotions, as is the element water and tidal movement on earth is also driven by the moon.
Additional astrological references include the planets Venus and Pluto and the signs of Libra, Cancer, and Scorpio.
Trauma and abuses that may affect this chakra include sexual and emotional abuse such as neglect, rejection, manipulation, and dealing with alcoholic families, denial of feeling, and inherited issues such as incest and other family related sexual issues.
Your second or sacral chakra governs issues to do with sexuality, emotions, finances, creativity, relationships, and self-worth.
Goals that will be impacted by this chakra include things like pleasure, healthy sexuality, having balanced feelings and emotions, and issues to do with self gratification.
You will also find that you may have to confront and overcome negative one-on-one control patterns in your relationships.
Organs that are impacted by the second or sacral chakra include the sexual organs, the large intestine, lower vertebrae, pelvis, kidneys, appendix, bladder, prostate, hip area, lymphatic system, and all the body fluids.

The years governed by your second chakra begin on your seventh birthday.
In this year, many of us start school and are faced with the question of where do we fit in in?
In the next year we get more creative and begin to explore our creativity in our relationships that we have established.
By year 9 we're looking at the personal power we have within our creativity and relationships.
By year 10 we get to the heart of and our connection to our own sense of creativity and relationships and how we feel about ourselves within relationships.
By the time we come to the voice and expression of creativity in relationships, we become interested in the opposite sex - and this helps us set our future vision for romantic relationships and what we expect of those relationships going forward.
In the final soul and essence year of creativity and relationships, we again piece together all the information that we've learned and gathered over the preceding seven years and this becomes our future framework.
An imbalanced sacral chakra can lead to a number of emotional issues like excessive sensitivity and strong emotion, obsessive attachment, and emotional dependency.
You may also find you have poor social skills, a lack of passion and excitement, denial of pleasure, fear of change, and rigidity in your attitudes.
You may experience sexual dysfunctions, OBGYN problems, dysfunctions of the reproductive organs such as infertility, spleen and urinary system issues, as well as a loss of appetite for food, sex, life, and chronic lower back pain.
When your sacral chakra is balanced you will move gracefully and easily.
You will have good emotional intelligence and be able to show compassion to those around you. You will have the ability to experience pleasure, nurturing yourself and others around you.
You will have a healthy propensity for change. You will be able to set healthy boundaries and you will experience healthy attitudes towards sex as well as healthy levels of sexual activity.
