The Music of the Spheres

“There’s not the smallest orb which thou behold’st
But in his motion like an angel sings,
Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubins;
Such harmony is in immortal souls;
But whilst this muddy vesture of decay
Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it.”


Here’s something of an anology which may be close to literally true….

Chakra means wheel; you are a little solar system; your chakras are your spinning planets, little spinning wheels. Every degree of the zodiac is like a key on a grand piano; when you are born the degree of the zodiac a planet is located at sets its tone, its note. Like a tuning fork, it’s permanently set to that pitch. Every planet in your birth chart (or chakra in your subtle body) is ‘set’ to one such key, note or tone.

After your birth the planets continue to move through the degrees of the zodiac, or the keys of the grand cosmic piano, so to speak, sending out different notes or vibrations as they move along.  Our natal (birth) planets/chakras are activated by resonance with the ‘transiting tones’, and in this way the frequencies radiated by the transiting planets set off our chakras, and who knows what that does?!

Astrological transits seem to demonstrate this; that’s why transiting Mars at 10 degrees Libra, for example, may produce huge results for me but not for you. My planets/chakras resonate with that particular vibration and yours may not, just as a specific musical note activates one tuning fork but not another next to it set to a different pitch.

When someone enters the room whose chakras are set at pitches resonant with yours (which you see in the birth charts a conspicuous synastry connections), you are ‘stirred’, there’s a connection. Your chakras are both transmitters and receivers. For example, if my Sun is located at 14 degrees Libra and your Moon is located at that same degree, we sense there’s a connection when we meet; it’s almost telepathic. My ‘Sun chakra’ and your ‘Moon chakra’ (whichever they may be, I’m not sure), have the same vibration, and respond to the same frequencies. When (transiting, moving) Venus arrives at 14 degrees Libra there is great affection between us, because we simultaneously respond to that vibration, and it rings along the channel between our chakras….

This quick sketch may give a tiny glimpse into the way the stories of our lives are the byproduct of a cosmic symphony!
