Unlike the other chakras, I’m not as familiar with the Sacral chakra. What I do know is that it relates to the creativity in us, the inner Goddess within – the one who creates. According to the John Holland guidebook for The Psychic Tarot cards, the sacral chakra signifies the “I want”; and it relates to creativity, emotions, desires and sexuality. The High Priestess card from classical Tarot card decks is connected to the sacral chakra.

The major arcana card from a tarot deck which can or may be related to the Sacral Chakra are:

The High Priestess

The Hermit

The Tower
