Keycenter of E Descending: The Solar Plexus Chakra

Willpower, Determination, Self-Acceptance

The keycenter of E is aligned with the Solar Plexus Chakra, which is located two inches below the breastbone, behind the stomach, around the navel. Castings in the key of E tend to take place in areas regarding willpower, determination, and self-acceptance.

The Solar Plexus Chakra lives in our core, and energy expressed through it is suffused with the power of will. It is the fire in the belly; it gets things done. It is the seat of courage, confidence, and respect for ourselves and others. When the Solar Plexus Chakra is blocked or underactive, we procrastinate or are apathetic; we may suffer from low self-esteem. If the chakra is overactive, we may find ourselves stuck in anger, bullying others, or being stubborn or judgmental.

Cards in the suit of Brass share a strong affinity with the Solar Plexus Chakra, as do colors and stones of yellow and gold, the herbs of rosemary and fennel, and the scents of cinnamon and sandalwood. In the body, the Solar Plexus Chakra governs cellular respiration, and is associated with the health and well being of the nervous system, stomach, gall bladder, large intestine, liver, and pancreas.

Hey! How come this is just for E "Descending"? For the most part, the diatonic notes on the Musician's Die — the white keys on a piano, C-D-E-F-G-A-B — have chromatics, black keys, between them. Chromatics don't represent the chakras themselves, but energy moving between them.. Funny thing, though—there is no black key between E and F. Thus E ascending and F descending are like chromatics—they're on the move. If your casting is in E Ascending, look here
