Chakras are vortexes of energy in the body; here are the 7 main chakras and their locations:
Chakras are yin when they receive energy, Yang when they emit energy. Some of them are more likely to move and to differentiate themselves, due to their intermediate position. The energetic structure of human body therefore corresponds to the tree of life (see details):
Note that the right hand, the right side of the body is more YANG than the left side of the body.
Look at the back of the body, you'll obtain the symmetric yin Yang tree:
Understanding yin/Yang/left/right is of importance.
Now, let's add names, chakras and their correspondences :
|N||Psychological functions, Symbolism||Chakra||Physiological functions||Planet||Metal|
|10||Spirituality = completion = 10||Crown (Sahasrara)||Pineal gland; regulates night and day||1st Swirling||---|
|9||Imagination, Artistic abilities, art = 9||yin Chandra Ajna||Thalamic area, helps pituitary gland||Zodiac||---|
|8||Rationality = structures = cubic = 8||Yang Surya Ajna||Pituitary gland, controls other glands||Saturn||lead|
|7||Justice = 7||yin Visuddha||Throat||Jupiter||tin|
|6||Communication = 6||Yang Visuddha||To speak, mouth||Mars||iron|
|5||Love, Openness = Humanity = 5||Heart : Anahata||Heart, circulatory system, blood||Sun||gold|
|4||Social, Community = 4||Yin : Navel||Digestive system : 2nd phase assimilation,||Venus||copper|
|3||Work, Business = 3||Yang : Solar Plexus : Manipura||Digestive system : 1st phase: digestion||Mercury||mercury|
|2||Sexual energy = 1+1 = 2||Sex Swadhistana||Reproductive organs||Moon||silver|
|1||Physical energy, will to live, survival = basis = 1||Root : Mulhadara||Spinal column, Adrenal||Earth||---|
Let's link masculine and feminine chakras :
The stereotype man is linked to physical energy (1), work (3), justice of severity (7), and rationality (8). In the stereotype man, the physical Yang (work, 3) and the intellectual Yang (rationality, 8), are balanced by the emotional yin (justice of severity, 7).
The stereotype woman is linked to social (4), communication (6), art (9), and spirituality (10). In the stereotype woman, the physical yin (social, 4) and the intellectual yin (art, 9), are balanced by the emotional Yang (communication, 6).
Sephiroth correspondences are not discussed because they are generally classified in a pillar of mercy, a pillar of balance, and a pillar of severity (containing Gevurah, the judgment, and binah, the rationality). While this classification is interesting, a classification based on yin / yang seems also consistent : there's a yin side (passivity) and a yang side (activity). With this classification, Yang Surya Ajna, the rationality, is on the yang side, because the rationality is more active than its intellectual counterpart, which is yin Chandra Ajna (art). And Justice (yin Visuddha) is on the yin side, because it is less active than its emotional counterpart (Yang Visuddha, communication). As a consequence, rationality (Yang) et justice (yin), are not on the same side. This classification is also consistent when it comes to male / female stereotype structure, numerology and flow of spiritual energy.
