It is the second primary chakra and is located above the pubic bone and below the navel and radiates the color orange and represents the element of water. The sacral chakra is considered to be responsible for relationships, sexuality, creativity, intuitiveness, self-worth, compassion, seeing beauty all around you, and adaptability.
