Working with the Water: Chakra Work for Pisces
Astrology goes far beyond the study of the stars and how they affect us, because astrology is connected to so many aspects of our daily lives. Astrology is certainly concerned with the celestial bodies above, but what makes it so magical is its correlation to everyday things here on Earth.
For instance, did you know that your Sun sign is connected to a certain chakra?
The Pisces Chakra(s):
Pisces is the last sign of the astrological calendar, and it is ruled by the dreamy planet Neptune. Neptune is connected to the sixth chakra, also known as the Throat chakra or Vishuddha in Sanskrit.
Pisces, however, is one of the few signs that is heavily influenced by two planets, with the other planet being expansive Jupiter. This planet connects to the third, or Solar Plexus, chakra - known in Sanskrit as Manipura.
Therefore, the Throat chakra and Solar Plexus chakra are the two that may require more attention from a Pisces than others. When these chakras are aligned, a Pisces will feel confident and capable of speaking up for themselves. When these chakras are blocked, however, a Pisces may feel stuck, insecure, and unable to share their feelings, beliefs, and desires with others.
Maintaining proper balance in all seven of our chakras is necessary for personal growth and evolution, as well as mental, emotional, and physical health. For the Pisces, however, it is important to pay special attention to your astrologically connected chakras, as balancing these energy points can assist in maintaining balance through all of the seven chakras.
Chakra Work for Pisces:
Now that we know which chakras connect to the imaginative sign of Pisces, let’s take a look at the easiest ways to maintain proper balance in the Solar Plexus and Throat chakras.
Which Chakra is the Key to Your Abundance? Take the quiz to find out!
Meditation is recommended for many things, including but not limited to emotional balance, mental health, patience, and mindfulness. But meditation also plays a big role in the balancing of the chakras. Because meditation is so customizable, it is one of the easiest and most personal ways that you can begin to balance the chakras.
To work on the Solar Plexus chakra, bring yourself into a meditative state and then imagine energy flowing from the ground, up through your feet, and into the warm center of your belly. Focus your energy on your abdomen, and imagine a ball of spinning, golden light resting in this area. Envision the glowing, yellow orb growing bigger and bigger until you’re surrounded by its light.
To begin opening the Throat chakra, imagine the healing energy flowing to your throat area. Picture a floating, glowing blue orb dangling near the neck and surrounding the throat with healing, cerulean energy. Picture the orb growing bigger and bigger and bathing your Throat chakra in its healing light.

Each chakra is associated with a certain color. You may have noticed the color references within the meditations listed above: The Throat chakra is associated with the color blue, while the Solar Plexus chakra is connected to shades of yellow.
Working with these colors is another easy way to begin opening their respective chakras. You can try incorporating yellow and blue into your wardrobe, brightening up your everyday outfits with a pop of cornflower here or a bit of canary yellow there.
Painting, drawing, and coloring are fun and effective ways to work with color. You could paint a picture of the blue sky with a field of golden sunflowers; or pick your favorite coloring book and dedicate an entire page to different shades of blue and yellow.
Crystal healing is fantastic for many, many purposes, with chakra balancing being one of them. There are certain crystals that are associated with each chakra. An easy tip is to look at the color of the crystal - if it matches the shade that represents the chakra you want to work with, there’s an excellent chance that the two are energetically connected.
Throat Chakra Crystals:
- Lapis lazuli
- Blue apatite
Solar Plexus Chakra Crystals:
- Fire agate
- Lemon quartz
- Yellow apatite
- Tiger’s eye
- Rutilated quartz
Crystal work for chakras can be as complex or streamlined as you’d like it to be.
You can simply place a crystal in your pocket and carry it with you throughout the day. You can place a crystal in your hand while practicing your chakra meditations. You might even try wearing jewelry featuring these crystals. Or you might prefer something a bit more involved, such as a crystal elixir: Place the crystal you’d like to work with in your drinking water for 30 minutes to infuse it with the healing energy you desire. (Remove the crystal before drinking, and research the crystal before you place it in your drinking water to make sure it’s safe to do so!)
