"Seven Chakra" paintings and drawings
by artist Harish Johari
| || "The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. |
The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches
and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches."
In The Astrology of the Seers, page 229-233, the eminent American Jyotishi David Frawley outlines the following system of planets-to-chakras:
(Sun-Moon are considered as a single planet.)
This arrangement is quite sensible given the job of each chakra.
Frawley's description of energy point along the central nadi channels being the rationale for exaltation points certainly makes sense, especially in lieu of any other explanation of uttama and nichha positions.
Frawley goes on to explain how uttama rashi designations reflect the function of the planets on the lower astral (vital) plane as opposed to the sign rulership which reflect how they function in the higher astral (mental) plane of thought and perception.
"The exaltation status is a center-oriented symbolism. The sign-ruling status is a top-oriented symbolism. Yet the exaltation order reflects how the plants function once their energy is integrated properly into our lower nature." --p. 232
Many thanks to Dr. Frawley for his lifetime of service to Jyotisha and traditional Vaidik arts
