As 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.
