Transiting Chiron in Pisces: Resurfacing Of Old Wounds

Posted on Updated on

ChironAs I write this, Transiting Chiron is @ 8 Degrees Pisces approaching a conjunction to my Natal Venus in Pisces @ 14 Degrees. Venus rules both my first (Libra) and eighth house (Taurus) and old wounds have popped up forcing me to focus on healing.

Discovered in 1977, the Planetoid Chiron was named after a healing Centaur. He was an Astrologer, teacher and in Greek Mythology a teacher to Achilles. Chiron can represent deep psychological wounds and also gives us insight on how to assist in the healing process. Again, I will be using my own chart as a guide in discussing transiting Chiron and my Natal Chiron in Aries in the 6th house of service. For me Chiron in Pisces represents Neptunian forms of healing. We will see an increase of Alternative methods of healing and a deep connection to the Cosmos.

We may find ourselves becoming more intuitive (A Pisces trait) and experiencing synchronicity at higher levels. Transiting Chiron is entering my 5th house approaching my Venus which also Squares Saturn in the 8th. The fifth house has many meanings. Often associated with pleasure, fun, gambling and speculation, it also represents for me, ones inner child (This house also deals with children) Many issues from my childhood (my shyness, sensitivity and insecurity) have resurfaced forcing me to take a long look at how these issues have impacted me.

My Natal Chiron is in Aries in the 6th house. The 6th house is associated not only with service, but health as well. I have always been a bit of a hypochondriac and Chiron’s placement here has assisted me with finding a deep connection with healing alternative medicines. Providing service to others (Doing readings for clients) is extremely healing for me as well. I’m not happy unless I am assisting (6th house) people/animals in some way.

Chiron and Major Life Events:

  • Transiting Asteroid Lilith (She has many meanings. In ancient mythology she was known as a demon-goddess and a devourer of children) Conjunct my Natal Chiron in the 6th when I had an ectopic pregnancy that almost killed me. This event really catapulted me into alternative medicine and healing.
  • Transiting Chiron in Capricorn was conjunct my 4th house (Home) cusp when my Grandmother died and we lost our childhood home.
  • Transiting Chiron in Aquarius was conjunct my Natal Jupiter in the 4th when my divorce was finalized and I found a new home (4th house)
  • Transiting Chiron entered my 4th house again in 2007. The 4th house represents ones mother and my Mother died during this time. Neptune which is associated with drugs was conjunct Chiron at the time. My mother died from an overdose of prescription pills.

Though these events were all extremely painful, they all brought me closer to healing and understanding. My Astrological studies increased and I decided to use Astrology as a healing tool not just  for myself but for others as well. Transiting Asteroid Pallas is currently approaching a conjunction to my Natal Chiron. Pallas is associated with knowledge and teaching. My studying has increased even more. Transiting Chiron in Pisces has given me the inspiration to use Astrology to focus on ones spirit and creativity. It has also encouraged me to explore humanistic Astrology. Astrology is an amazing tool for both growth and awareness and I’m looking forward to assisting people in their healing process. Thank you to all of those who visit my humble little blog. Your energy is truly appreciated!

      Chiron has been doing a serious number on me. Especially today. I’d love to talk to you! It would be a great help 🙂

    HI Nicole,

    A very interesting article. Chiron is the knowledge holder too.

    I’m presently trying to finish a book on Chiron (I have been researching since the 1980s with big breaks) and I suspect you have read my Chiron articles. I notice you have your natal Chiron aspecting Mars and your nodal axis, so how does that make you feel looking back over your life? Your Mars is the apex of a T square which squares Chiron 6 and Uranus 1. Have you ever felt that you might not be a hypochondriac but genuinely be lacking in energy. .Mars rules so many of the B vitamins. Eileen Nauman’s book on medical astrology is just fabulous and helpful. She is a friend of mine and so genuine and knowledgeable. Have you thought of specialising in counselling siblings and do some study of psychology at university. Just a hint : Mars rules the adrenal glands and if they go haywire your cortisol can go all over the place and that creates anxiety (Uranus square Mars.) Something happened just a you were born. Just some thoughts.

    Best Wishes,

      Hilary thank you so much for the feedback (and positive energy) I swing back and forth between having lots of nervous energy and being drained. I know for a fact that I need more B-Complex in my diet.

      When I look back on my life, I feel frustrated at all of the opportunities I had and shied away from due to fear. I spend a lot of time afraid and it’s actually crippled me in so many ways. I’m working on that and with transiting Pluto slowly entering my 4th house I feel as though I’m being forced to purge a lot of old thought patterns. (My body is purging as well!)

      Lately I’ve had a lot of anxiety attacks (one sent me to the emergency room I was so worked up) especially with Tr. Uranus entering my 6th house. I’ve been jittery and more wound up than usual. Writing about my feelings daily in a journal really helps as well as getting outside (I’m a homebody)

      I would love to study psychology/healing and medical astrology to be honest with you. I have to get over my fear of being in a classroom! (I hated school as a child!)

    Interesting Nicole about ur panic attacks and Uranus entering the 6th house. Uranus conjuncted my sun back in feb. as it entered the sixth house, while Pluto was square to my sun. I have had so much nervous tension in my body and about my health. I also became sick with the flu and dehydrated during this time, had a panic attack and went to emergency room. I’ve made a serious commitment to bettering my health these last couple of months and have found that I will remove myself from any stress or drama that surrounds me. I’m especially sensitive with this transit. Uranus in the sixth house seems to be urging me towards alternative health treatments…I tried acupuncture most recently for stress/ anxiety it worked wonders!! Cheers and hope all of u have safe travels…*)

      I’m definitely looking into alternative healing methods. My health went down hill after the death of a close friend a week before thanksgiving. Then I got the flu and was sick as a dog! It’s been rough. Thank you for commenting.

    Hi Nicole,
    I also have Chiron in Aries in the 6th house and Saturn in the 8th house, Chiron is currently squaring my Venus and Saturn (I have Saturn conjunct Venus) and I am suffering from such an awful wound from unrequited love, it is very painful, I was wondering does the wound completely heal or is it a life long one?
    Thank you

      I’m where you are now *sigh* I have Venus Square Saturn and this current Chiron transit is a major trigger for my self-esteem issues. It’s hard because, I complain about feeling unloved, but when people reach out to me, I push them away!

      I work with my Chiron in the 6th as much as I can by doing healing work/service (6th house) for others believe it or not. I used to work in a nursing home/hospice and providing care for others (I have Cancer on my 10th house/career cusp) really helped me with my own healing. Work heals me.

      Chiron doesn’t have to be a nightmare. My Venus/Saturn square has been more of a hindrance and a life long struggle than my Chiron. Healing Chiron issues can be done, I honestly believe this. Barbara Hand Clow’s “Chiron: Rainbow Bridge Between The Inner and Outer Planets” is a great book for those dealing with Chiron and Chironic energy.

    Thanks Nicole,
    I think that the ONLY way to turn the Saturn Venus into something positive is self love, absolutely nothing else will alleviate the difficulties associated with it.
    Best of luck with Chiron, maybe the healing of the Saturn Venus scars will be activated through the transit, where there is life there is hope!

      You’re so correct about the Saturn/Venus aspect. It’s something I’ve struggled with–I’m getting a little better now that I’m older, but there’s still a lot of work I need to do. *sigh*
