Saturn and the Kundalini   Leave a comment

Saturn with Mars rules the Muladhara, the root or base chakra.  Saturn works to create a stable base for the Kundalini energy to flow.  The base chakra is vital and it is important that this chakra is both strong and stable.  This chakra roots us to mother earth and life when we die it ceases to exist and the soul is no longer rooted to the earthly plane.  Even those of us who astral travel are rooted to the earth and our bodies by this chakra it is only after the soul has begun the ascent into the tunnel that the energies from this chakra wither and die back into the earth once more in the perpetual cycle of life.  A stable and vibrant Muladhara provides the foundation for a stable and vibrant kundalini, this is especially important for the first four chakras where the strength and vitality of the Muladhara is very important to the flow of energy into them and the consistency of that energy is dependant on stability.  The Muladhara along with the 2nd and 4th Chakras is also of vital importance when accessing the creative and healing energies of mother earth.  The Muladhara gives access to the potential creative energy held within the earth through the root of Saturn between our base Chakra and the earth.

Our root anchors us and gives us a solid foundation.

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Before the three little pigs left home to find their life’s fortune in the world, their mother told them, “Whatever you do, do it the best you can”. Sadly, the first two little pigs took the easiest way and built their homes out of straw and sticks. However, the third little pig was wise and built his house out of bricks. As the story unfolds, the big bad wolf huffs, puffs, and blows the first two houses of straw and sticks down. The two little pigs run to their brother’s house built of brick, and the wolf was unable to blow it down. Eventually, the wolf flees the scene and the three little pigs survive! The moral of the story is that the third pig listened to his mother’s wisdom, obeyed her advice, and built his life upon a solid foundation in order to survive.  There are different versions of this fairy tale around the globe.

Coppicing is an English term for a traditional method of woodland management which takes advantage of the fact that many trees make new growth from the stump or roots if cut down. In a coppiced wood, young tree stems are repeatedly cut down to near ground level. In subsequent growth years, many new shoots will emerge.  Coppicing maintains trees at a juvenile stage, and a regularly coppiced tree will never die of old age — some coppice stools may therefore reach immense ages. The age of a stool may be estimated from its diameter, and some are so large—perhaps as much as 5.4 metres (18 ft) across — that they are thought to have been continually coppiced for centuries.  When a tree has been coppiced its roots become stronger and more stable.  Many grasses are designed to burn down to just above the root, plants have long understood that if the root is strong, stable and secure they can withstand almost anything.

If we view the chakras as parts of a tree, the muladhara is the root system that attaches us securely to earth and the base where nutrients are absorbed, the 2nd Chakra is the trunk whose strength and stability is dependant on the roots – the stronger the root, the stronger it can become, if the trunk grows strong and large but the root is weak it will easily be blown over in the wind.  The 3rd chakra may be seen as the branches, which are dependant on a strong trunk to carry the nutrients from the root. The 4th chakra the leaves, which combine the nutrients from the roots with the nutrients of the air (or love) to create life giving energy which create the fruit of the 5th, 6th and 7th Chakras.  Our tree can lose its leaves in winter and branches can break off, its trunk may be cut down but as long as its root is stable it will survive and come back stronger than before. If our tree has weak roots and is blown over by the wind it will die.

Saturn in aspect to the Sun,

here the strength of the root and the trunk or our 1st and 2nd chakras are necessary to support the creative branches of the third chakra.  This may mean that branches may at times be cut off to strengthen the roots and indeed it may be necessary for the trunk to be coppiced to create a root that is strong and secure.  If coppicing has occurred the strength of the root will ensure the new trunk is stable and durable able to support many branches.  Pruning of the ego may be painful at times leaving lasting insecurities but behind the cut, new shoots emerge that will be more fruitful for the individual in their life.  Here the long term goal of Saturn is creating strong and stable foundation for growth.

Saturn in aspect to the moon,

here the strength of the root and the trunk or our 1st and 2nd chakras are necessary to support the creative branches of the third chakra.  This may mean that branches may at times be cut off to strengthen the roots and indeed it may be necessary for the trunk to be coppiced to create a root that is strong and secure.  If coppicing has occurred the strength of the root will ensure the new trunk is stable and durable able to support many branches. Nelson Mandela had Saturn square his moon, his incarceration in solitude was a major coppicing event in his life being separated from friends and family for years is unimaginable to most of us.  Yet this event gave him the inner strength and stability needed after his release to make the positive changes necessary for the benefit of all in South Africa.

Saturn in aspect to Mercury,

here the strength of the root is needed to develop the fruit of wisdom. Once upon a time there was an apple tree which God had created. It was a young tree without any leaves or fruit. One night the young tree saw the brilliant stars and was very unhappy. He wished for himself to have these sparkling stars on his branches so that he too would be beautiful. The next morning, God noticed that the tree was unhappy, and He said to him, “Let me make something for you. I will dress you up in a beautiful mantle of green so that you will be beautiful to behold. Then you will not be so unhappy.”  But the tree was not content with God’s plan. “I do not want a mantle of green, I want stars.” The next morning the tree saw that God had not given him stars, but green leaves. And the tree frowned upon it. Once again the tree said to God, “I want stars,” but instead, God gave him beautiful red fruit. The tree was even more unhappy. The wind saw how unhappy the apple tree was and the wind became unhappy too. The wind blew and tried to set the apple tree free of the leaves and the fruit, but he failed. However, as the wind blew, some of the leaves and fruit fell to the ground. One piece of fruit broke into two pieces right in the middle. When the tree looked upon the broken fruit, guess what he saw?  Inside the fruit was the shape of a star! Not only did the apple contain the star of wisdom but also the seeds of the 6th and 7th chakras.  Saturn here prunes back the dead and old branches in order for us to bear fruit.  It makes sure the root is strong enough and stable enough to support the fruit our tree grows.

Saturn in aspect to Venus,

Here the green leaves produce the magic alchemy of life. Saturn in aspect to Venus creates strong base for the nutrients(energy) to flow from the roots to the leaves or the heart to be used as part of the alchemy of eternal love. What is produced here will create the fruit of the last three chakras.  This aspect denotes that there is a good possibility of producing healthy abundant fruit due to strengthening of the tree as a whole through coppicing and pruning.

Saturn in aspect to Mars,

if Saturn represents the strength and stability of the root system, Mars represents the nutrients that flows or the energy that is capable of flowing through the tree and it is proportional to the stability and strength of the roots. Saturn here is all about strengthening the root system to allow this energy to flow better and enrich the whole tree.  In order for this energy to have maximum effect its systems need to be strong and secure and Saturn enables this energy to reach its maximum potential by creating a strong system.

Saturn in aspect to Jupiter,

Our trunk starts as a tiny shoot growing towards the light, the light of hope, wonder and awe can at times leave us but this ultimately encourages us to grow upwards searching for the light and it is our root that allows us to do this. and often when we have a strong trunk it is cut down out of the blue and we are left with just our root but after it recovers from the shock it is stronger and the new trunk is more stable and stronger than the previous one. The second chakra the Swdhisthana is where the creative energy of mother earth begins to flow upwards since it receives the creative energy directly from the roots this chakra is deeply connected to fertility, both in the form of sexual energy and in the sense that what nutrients or energy flows through this chakra are the ones that create the fruits of the final chakras.

Saturn in aspect to Uranus,

Uranus rules the 4th and 5th Chakras of the heart and throat.  Saturn in aspect to Uranus creates a stable system that can support the leaves and fruit of the 4th and 5th chakras and allows the energy to flow that keeps them healthy and productive.  With this aspect there is the strength to withstand the storms of life through the trials of life that have enabled healthy fruit to be produced.  Those with this aspect may provide a secure and stable base for less fortunate individuals to rely on in times of need and they may be attracted to working with the less fortunate in life.  The Muladhara also corresponds to the energy of the earth signs and is the point where the chakras connect to the earth itself as such those with Uranus in aspect to Saturn may also develop much wisdom and understanding of the natural world and have a deep respect for our home, nurturer and provider.

Saturn in aspect to Neptune,

denotes understanding the real world involves pain and discomfort and that our actions produce results we have to live with and endure, that life exists for a short time only and we need to act while we still have the opportunity to do so. Saturn reminds us that we share the journey of life with others and that what we do or do not do affects their journey and opportunities to make the most of it.  There is an opportunity to share this common responsibility we have to each other and to help others realise the effects of their actions and behaviour on this wondrous planet for future generations and on each other.  The soul has the opportunity to accept its responsibility as part of the living history of mother earth to ensure its survival and to protect what their ancestors nurtured and nourished in the natural world and in regards to each other, to help others understand the principles of respect and consideration for what has gone before and what will be left as a legacy.  The soul here by protecting what is left for future generations feels secure in letting go and moving on to the next step of the journey in the knowledge that loved ones will have a future that is worth while.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 1st chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to understanding the precious gift of life and the need to take responsibility for it.

Saturn in aspect to Pluto,

denotes the ability to reach the realisation that they are alive and from birth they feel the intense drive to breath, the pain of cold air against skin and the warmth of their mother’s touch.  The soul realises it is in a physical body and feels the intense needs to eat, sleep and be warm.  The soul understands that when it falls it hurts that to be alive is to be physically connected to pain and pleasure.  The soul here is very aware of the physical world around them and that the consequences of their actions and those of others have real effects.  The individual here has the opportunity to help others realise that all we do has consequences for others.  These individuals can help others to consider the effects their actions have on the world around them.  They have a strong understanding of why we are all pruned to produce good fruit.
