Introduction

The Astro-Chakra Synergy System®

Our bodies are always communicating with us through various feelings, emotions and sensations. The Astro-Chakra Synergy System® is a way in which our own personal energy centres can be contacted and a dialogue setup between us and our Chakra. The Astro-Chakra Synergy System® provides us with a unique way of getting in touch with our very essence.

The chakras are continually feeding our bodies with universal life-force energy, the energy of life. This system uses various 'Chakra' and 'Planetary Chakra Cards' to unlock the mystery of this internal dialogue between the universe and our physical functioning vehicles – our bodies.

Using these cards astrologically can certainly bring a more expansive side to any chart interpretation.

You need not be an astrologer, however, to use these cards and gain value from the experience. These cards will open up a new way to communicate with yourself and the state of your own personal energy system.

The cards came about through my study of astrology and wanting to take it that one step further, personalising astrology even more. I have recognised for a long time that people work on different energy levels astrologically. I saw this time and time again when teaching astrology and working with natal charts.

Our own astrological birth chart, consisting of the ten planets, is unique to us and is a reflection of our connection to the universe. It is our own personal energy ‘blueprint’ for our life. When a planet ‘Transits’ (moves around and activates certain planets within the natal chart), there is a unique way each person would approach and feel the ‘Transit’ on an energetic level. As we are all connected to everything in the universe energetically, it was truly fascinating and I started to think that there must be a correlation between the planets and the personal energy centres in the body (chakras). The problem was how to go about finding out which particular energy centre in the body the planet /s were activating.

We have, over the centuries, strived to find answers and more meaning in life through the use of many forms of oracles (tarot cards, runes stones to name a few). This practice is surprisingly accurate when used appropriately with the right intention. In the time spent researching the uses of these cards, I have personally found that the messages the cards bring are always exactly what you need to hear at that time. Again, I stress the fact that you do not have to know astrology to use these cards.

The planetary energies can simply and easily be accessed through working with these cards. The interpretations give full explanations of the meaning of each card and combinations of cards. There is also a suggested ‘Action’ to go with each 'Planetary Chakra Card'. This allows you to then follow up on the reading and focus on something positive to help improve your life.

The planetary energies fl owing in, through and around us are continually changing depending on our own personal stage of spiritual development. The Astro-Chakra Synergy System® helps us to work with these planetary energies by providing a simple, hands on approach as they mingle within and activate our own personal energy system – the chakras. The outcome is a rare insight into your ‘dance with the stars’.

When you use the Astro-Chakra Synergy System®, you may feel energy building up in various parts of your body (e.g., your forehead or third eye area) as you sit and interpret the cards you have drawn. This energy may feel cold, hot, pulsating or a slight tingling sensation. It is an entirely personal journey, as you might discover that others feel completely differently compared to you. You may want to delve deeper and deeper into the feelings you receive. Go with the flow, the rhythm of the reading, take your time. The cards hold very powerful symbols of the planets. The planetary energies are with us all the time and by intentionally concentrating and focusing on them you are accessing a portal, a link between your own powerful energy field and the planets. They convey a certain type of energy with which we are constantly in contact, whether we are aware of it or not.

The different card layouts give various ideas on how to use these cards. Depending on the time available and desired intention you may choose to work with a more complex layout, doing a complete chakra scan or you may choose to only work with one chakra centre at a time. You will soon find out which layout you feel drawn to use.

If you are not familiar with the chakras or astrology, spend a few minutes reading the introduction on both these areas to give you some background before you start. By understanding the importance your chakras have on your overall health, you may become much more interested in how they can be brought into balance to maintain a healthy body, mind and spirit.

If you are already an astrologer or someone with a keen interest in astrology you will find these cards to be an incredibly interesting adjunct, a worthwhile tool to use when you are practicing astrology. They may give an added dimension and insight as to how a person is feeling, what they are experiencing and point to some of the main issues that are being focused on, or need to be, at that moment in time by that individual.

Most of all let your self go and have fun with these cards. These cards will help you on a never-ending journey of self-discovery, self-balancing and self-awareness. Enjoy!
