Tarot Cards and the Sacral Chakra: How to Increase Your Creativity

Are you feeling creatively stuck and you’re not sure how to get out of the rut?

It’s frustrating when you feel you’re not able to come up with any new ideas.

The sacral chakra is associated with creativity and sexuality, so when it’s deficient or excessive in energy, we can experience creative blocks.

Tarot cards can help.

By using Tarot cards, you can explore what’s blocking your creativity and work through those blocks so you can increase your chances of creating anything you want.

In this post, I’ll show you exactly how to do that!

What is the sacral chakra and what does it do?

The sacral chakra is below the navel in the lower abdomen. It’s associated with creativity, sexuality and handles our ability to feel pleasure and joy.

Sacral Chakra:

  • Sanskrit name: Svadhisthana, which means “sweetness.”
  • Color: Orange
  • Element: Water
  • Identity: Emotional
  • Shadow: Guilt
  • Development Stage: 6 months to 2 years of age

With a balanced sacral chakra, we’re:

  • creative with sexual energy flowing through us
  • confident and feel connected to our desires
  • creatively expressive and experience pleasure fully

If the sacral chakra is out of balance, we:

  • feel disconnected from our emotions or our sexuality
  • experience a lack of creativity
  • have low self-esteem
  • experience sexual issues
  • lack passion or excitement

The characteristics I’ve mentioned above aren’t a complete list.

How can Tarot cards help increase your creativity?

The combination of colors, symbols, and archetypes found in the Tarot keys can help to activate the creative flow of energy in the sacral chakra.

In addition, working with the Tarot can help you become more attuned to your inner desires and needs, as this is also a center for your gut instinct.

As you become more aware of what you want and need, you can trust your choices, as they’re in alignment with your highest good.

By working with the Tarot, you can heal and balance your sacral chakra, opening yourself up to greater creativity and pleasure.

What are some of the best Tarot cards for creativity and the sacral chakra?

The suit of cups (minor arcana linked with the element of water) is often associated with the sacral chakra, as it represents emotions, feelings, and relationships.

Ace of Cups (a minor arcana key) is a potent card for this chakra, as it symbolizes new beginnings, emotional healing, and spiritual purity.

Other strong minor arcana contenders for the sacral chakra include:

  • Two of Cups (harmony and balance)
  • Six of Cups (childhood memories, nostalgia, sexuality)
  • Nine of Cups (wishes come true)

You can also look to the Major Arcana keys that represent change and new perspectives, such as The Tower, The Moon, and The Fool. These keys can help you break free from old patterns and open up to new possibilities.

I like to pull out The Magician major arcana key when I need some creative writing focus. The keywords of this key are “focused concentration.”

I look at it for a few minutes and then write, holding the image of The Magician in my mind.

It works.

This is a practice I learned from the late Dr. Paul Foster Case, whose work is an enormous influence on my development as a tarot reader.
