When we feed too much energy into our desire for power in hopes of experiencing more exhilaration, the result is careless risk-taking such as gambling, ruthless ambition, trying to over-power another. What is being violated is the Solar Plexus’ counterpart: the Throat Chakra, seat of logic and conscience. The compulsion for risk-taking, gambling or over-reaching one’s power (to experience more and more exhilaration) inevitably leads to loss. The shadow side of its counterpart - the Throat Chakra - is being evoked to boost the Solar Plexus to go into over-drive (rather than maintaining balance). The shadow side of the Throat Chakra is not using logic, not telling the truth, and avoiding the facts of the situation. The consequence of not integrating the Throat and Solar Plexus Chakras is predictable loss of clear conscience.
