The Spleen Chakra is located in the center of the bottom rib on the left side of the body. This places the Spleen chakra directly over the location of the physical spleen. The Spleen Chakra is smaller than the seven centrally located chakras. This chakra is usually thought of as magenta in color, although some philosophies show it as having various colors along the periphery of its petal shape. The spleen chakra, like the physical spleen, controls the quality of the blood and supports the immune system. Spleen energy aids the body in being victorious over the diseases to which we are exposed and prevents the immune system from becoming overzealous and creating autoimmune disorders and allergies. Just as this chakra lends strength to the immune system physically, this chakra also lends strength to the parts of the energy system responsible for protecting us from the energetic drain we may experience as we associate with others. Out of balance physical issues in which this chakra is involved includes fatigue (a lack of overall vitality), Chronic Fatigue, arthritis, and rheumatism. An unhealthy spleen chakra depletes our life energy and usually results in serious depression and anxiety about our ability to provide for ourselves and those that rely on us. Some philosophies do not distinguish between this chakra and the sacral chakra but the energies of the two are really quite distinctive.
