Chiron: Healing with Astrology (Members)

Where and how have you experienced wounding in your life? How can you heal and see the gift of that wound? Find answers to these questions and have a better understanding of your personal healing journey.

Let’s talk about:

  • The difference between childhood experiences and adult choices.
  • The importance of house placements for outer planets and Chiron
  • Placement of Chiron between Saturn and Uranus: the link/bridge from the material/karmic world to the Soul’s greater vision for life on Earth.

Chiron: the Wounded Healer: connect to the wounding within and rise above it through love compassion and understanding. Bring what you learn from this journey to the world, to others

This audio recording includes many valuable hand outs and you will get a chance to do hands-on work with your own birth chart:

The German astrologer Eva Stangenberg makes the following summary of these various themes of Chiron:

“Chiron’s position in the natal chart shows us where we experience a division between the material and the spiritual world, a wounding. However, it also represents our greatest chance to overcome it and become whole. And with the spiritual insight of Uranus we can recognize the unity of body and soul not only in ourselves but in everything that exists… Chiron is not about achieving mastery through diligence and hard work as is the case with Saturn, or by releasing the energy bound to traumatic experiences as is the case with Pluto, but simply by accepting the deficit of not being “whole”… Only through our experiences with this feeling and the acceptance of not being “whole” can we begin to understand this problem in others… We share with others our compassion, our understanding, our experiences, and by doing this we can help them. This doesn’t entail sacrificing something which makes us “poorer”, on the contrary, we”achieve” a connection, create a wholeness where before there was division.”

Look at the house placement of Chiron in your chart and at the ruler of the sign Chiron occupies.

Chiron in the natal chart points to our deepest wounds, whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual – anything we wish hadn’t happened to us. This is also our “shadow” – the parts of ourselves we had to ignore, condemn, or lock away, in order to live within our family and society.

As Carl Jung so memorably said though ”The gold is always in the shadows”. Within these locked and darkened rooms lie all our benefits, blessings, lessons and gifts. When we reintegrate what we banished, we become truly unique – unlike anyone else who has ever lived. Chiron tells us that, no matter how painful or shameful, every wound holds a gift.

Trying to “fix” these wounds sends the message that the wound itself is “wrong” and we are broken because of it – we are just driving it deeper into the shadow. The healing path to wholeness is simply to approach the wound ‐‐ and to accept our own perfection, exactly as we are (and are not). We sit with the wound compassionately, as we would with a wounded relative, until it reveals its gifts.

Chiron is not only a pointer then, it is also a catalyst for “self‐alchemy” – a way to turn our personal “base metals” into gold. It is both guide and process in this quantum leap of consciousness.

Chiron: Bridge between Saturn and Uranus, link between social and outer planets: connects the worldly with the spiritual, the physical with the non-physical, we are being reminded of our humanity and to see it as a gift

Outer planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto: they connect us to the Soul’s wishes, dreams and desires

Uranus:The Soul’s wish for freedom and change (idealistic): divine creativity, innovation and intelligence (speed things up)

Neptune:The Soul’s dream of oneness and unconditional love (spiritual):

Divine love, presence and creativity (slows things down)

Pluto:The Soul’s desire for feeling fully empowered and passionate about life (emotional): divine will, purpose and power (deepens our experiences)

Moon Nodes: represent our Soul’s Journey: Past, Future and the integration of the two in the Present

How are Pluto and Chiron Different?

Pluto Chiron
Empowerment process Healing process
Letting go of what’s dead and toxic Acceptance, embracing our imperfections – allowing ourselves to be human, with compassion for our limitations
 Trauma or disempowerment from the past A wound handed down from our ancestors
Attachments/control – holding on out of fear, wanting to protect ourselves Insecurity, shame, abandonment

Imagine you’re looking inside a refrigerator…

You spot a piece of fruit that’s been in there for too long and is starting to rot. You take it out and throw it away, so that the rest of the fruit doesn’t rot as well. We let the dead, toxic fruit go, so we can feel healthy and empowered. That’s Pluto…

But perhaps there’s another piece of fruit in the refrigerator, that has a dimple or looks crooked. We don’t necessarily throw it out – it’s not bad, it’s just “wounded”. We accept it for what it is and develop compassion for its “flaw”, for being less than perfect. We develop an understanding about what it’s like to be less-than-perfect and can therefore accept this in others as well.

That’s Chiron – the Wound itself feels like it is a “disconnect”, but it is actually the connector between the physical and spiritual realms. Through the wound, we have the ability to learn compassion, and allow ourselves to be unique.
