In Tantra, the Anahata ("Unstruck Note") chakra is said to have twelve petals of a red or white hue, while the central part is a smokey colour. It is associated withthe element or tattwa of Air, and is the seat of the Divine Soul or Higher Self, the Jivatman, represented by the image of a motionless golden lamp-flame.
counterclockwise from the bottom: Vayu, Isha, Kakini
Astrologically, there is no doubt that this centre corresponds to the Sun (although Ann Ree Colton makes the strange association that it is linked with Venus, perhaps because she wishes to reserve the sun for the "Tenth Chakra" [Kundalini West, p.298]. Colton reflects her Christian bias by locating "Jesus" in this chakra; in fact it is more likely that the Jesus-impulse is accessed through the front Heart chakra, not the rear will centre. Rudolph Steiner however associates the Sphere of the Sun spiritually with the "Cosmic Christ" or "Spirit of Form"; the Divine principle behind the Human Christ, and cosmic and human evolution. In the KabbalisticSefirot, the Anahata/Sun Centre corresponds to the Sefirah of Tifaret, representing the first stage of the initiate or adept, in which one recieves revelation from one's Higher Self or "Holy Guardian Angel" (represented by Keter, the highest Sefirah).
