Keycenter of G: The Throat Chakra

Communication, Honesty, Listening, Expressiveness

The keycenter of G is aligned with the Throat Chakra, which is located just above the “V” of the collarbone, and includes the larynx; it engages as well the ears and nose. Castings in the key of G tend to take place in areas regarding communication.

It is via the Throat Chakra that we speak and sing, of course—and also that we listen. When the chakra is open and balanced, we are honest and expressive, and we listen deeply; we seek and share truth; we communicate. When the chakra is blocked or underactive, we can’t seem to express ourselves; we may be afraid to speak in public, or have a hard time comprehending what is said to us. When the chakra is overactive, we talk too much: we prattle on without regard to whom we are speaking, and/or keep our inner chatter running while others speak, and so do not hear them.

Cards in the suit of Voices share an obvious affinity with the Throat Chakra, as do colors and stones of bright or pale blue, the herbs of red clover and chamomile, and the scents of bergamot and frankincense. In the body, the Throat Chakra is associated with the health and well being of the thyroid gland and endocrine system, the larynx, the trachea, and the mouth, ears, and nose.
