Capricorn Chakra Work

Every zodiac sign has both positive and negative traits but understanding how to use your specific astrological to work with your chakras can help you address and correct some of the negative traits inherent in your sign.

Capricorns are associated with the Root chakra, also known as the Mūlādhāra in Sanskrit.

This is the Capricorn’s power chakra, and it is essential that it remains balanced for the Cap to feel fully capable and confident.

This chakra is the first chakra, and it’s located at the base of the spine. The Root chakra deals with our sense of security and stability in the world, two concepts that are strongly associated with Capricorn’s ruling planet, Saturn. The Root chakra governs our sense of control over our environment and ourselves—feeling out-of-control is a good indication that the Root chakra is blocked or unbalanced.

When a Capricorn’s Root chakra is functioning properly, they feel confident, capable, and secure about their position in the world. A blocked Root chakra can contribute to a Capricorn’s need to work to the point of exhaustion or close themselves off from their loved ones.

For a Capricorn, keeping the Root chakra aligned is a must. Cap’s sense of responsibility and motivation rely on the security that a balanced Root chakra provides.

How to Balance Your Root Chakra

There are many ways to keep your Root chakra balanced and open, and many of them naturally involve Capricorn energy.

Chakra Healing Crystals

For instance, working with Capricorn-associated crystals is an excellent way to heal your Root chakra.

  • Black tourmaline is a grounding crystal that will bring you back down to Earth when necessary.
  • Fluorite cleanses the aura and heals negative energy and emotions.
  • Jet provides an earthy sense of protection that helps Capricorn energy grow from a strong foundation.
  • Garnet promotes love for yourself and others and is closely linked to Cap energy.
  • Onyx, tiger’s eye, and obsidian are all excellent stones that further draw out positive Capricorn traits while reducing any negativity that may be blocking the Root chakra.

Connecting with Mother Nature

As an Earth sign, it’s imperative that Capricorns foster their relationship with Mother Nature; and fortunately, this is another excellent way to balance your power chakra. Hike your favorite trail, spend an hour in the park with a good book, pack an outdoor picnic, or simply take a walk around the block to instantly feel your energy come alive. You have to encourage your sign’s ruling element in order to feel like yourself - and in this case, that means spending time in the presence of Earth, in all her glory.

Chakra Chow-Down

Another great way to balance the Root chakra is to incorporate foods with the right energy into your diet.

Root vegetables are the go-to food items that most efficiently balance the Root chakra: carrots, parsnips, turnips, beets, celery, ginger, rutabagas, horseradish, turmeric, jicama, and daikon are all considered to be root vegetables and work well to balance this chakra.

Foods high in protein, such as eggs, tofu, beans, and meat, are also good for your power chakra.

Chakra Exercises

Meditation and yoga are two amazing exercises that do so much more than balance the chakras. Adding these activities to your daily schedule will reduce stress, increase mental clarity and calmness, and even make you stronger.

These activities also work to heal all seven chakras.

Embracing Your Capricorn Nature

When your power chakra, the Root chakra, is balanced and open you can truly appreciate everything that makes you unique. When you feel secure and stable, you’re able to create your own path towards success, expressing gratitude for the natural tenacity and persistence that seems synonymous with the headstrong goat of the zodiac.

Keep your Root chakra balanced to let everything wonderful about your Capricorn-self shine through!
