Keycenter of F Ascending: The Heart Chakra

Love, Trust, Forgiveness, Kindness

The keycenter of F is aligned with the Heart Chakra, which is located behind the breastbone and in front of the shoulder blades. Castings in the key of F tend to take place in areas regarding love.

Of all the chakras, the Heart Chakra is the most easily understood, the most readily recognizable. We all know the feeling of the heart suddenly opening, when we spontaneously give to others, or they unexpectedly give to us; we feel it in the hug of a child, in gratitude for a partner or friend, in the scent of a rose. When the Heart Chakra is open and balanced we love and are loved, are empathetic, kind, grateful, and compassionate. If the Heart chakra is blocked or underactive, we may become lost in self-pity or fearful of rejection. If the chakra is overactive, we can be jealous, or feel entitled, or cast blame on others. 

Cards in the suit of Strings share a strong affinity with the Heart Chakra, as do colors and stones of green and pink, hawthorne berries, and the scents of rose and jasmine. In the body, the Heart Chakra is associated with the health and well being of the lungs, the heart and circulatory system, and the thymus, which is critical to the adaptive immune system.

Hey! How come this is just for F "Ascending"? 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 F Descending, look here .
