Chiron is controversial.
Some astrologers don’t include him.
But when I realize that I’m avoiding the topic of Chiron changing signs in April — yes, next month — I know I need to pay attention.
Chiron matters and Chiron is not an easy energy.
If you’ve spent time in astrology circles at all then you know we call Chiron the “Wounded Healer.”
Chiron, a centaur, could heal others but not himself. Astrologer Howard Sasportas wrote that our Saturn problems could be healed, but not Chiron, that we carry these issues with us until the end.
There’s always a risk of that old wound getting ripped open.
No salve. Vulnerable there.
And maybe we need this Chiron. Do we?
Is all hope lost? Due to Chiron’s presence in our psyches?
No, but it will be helpful if you can make room for Chiron.
Make room for your wound, your vulnerability.
This is not easily said or done. Feels better just to hide it away.
Chiron in Aries ain’t gonna hide it away.
Chiron in Aries: LOOK AT MY DAMN WOUND SEE IT????
Ideally, Chiron in Aries = NO SHAME.
But if YOU have Chiron in Aries and your Chiron takes some hard aspects, it won’t be so easy to be honest and open with yourself/others about your Chiron problems!
So what do we do?
We check our charts. We see where the new transit will be, how long it will last, the aspects it will make.
