In reality both are always present: the supremacy of the self and the hubris of consciousness. ~Carl Jung
The Jungian concept of the SELF lies occulted, whereas we use the EGO as a vehicle of that UNCONSCIOUS. The self IS UNCHANGING and TIMELESS, it an a priori existent to the EGO. Therefore we do not CREATE ourselves. We HAPPEN to ourselves. Sublime? Confusing?
The reality around you and your experiences happen to you; there is no active creation from your side? WTF? Where is FREE WILL?
Chiron, the INNER TEACHER/GURU shows you the path of using the FREE WILL in the way he embarks on the healing journey, but the result of that action he sort of has to leave to the substratum of the Unconscious. And do not for one minute think CHIRON, the asteroid is dead. Chiron is very much alive and breathing.
While most centaurs are thought to be dormant, scientists have seen glimmers of activity from Chiron. Starting in the late 1980s, astronomers observed patterns of brightening from the centaur, as well as activity similar to that of a streaking comet. ~~astronomynow
The story of Chiron is a bit like how Jung posits this theory. Chiron allowed the healing energy to happen to him. Did he heal from this energy? Nope. But he helped and mentored numerous other Gods and Heroes who went out to play important roles in the world.
CHIRON is an ASTEROID with an elliptical orbit that lies between SATURN(STRUCTURE) and URANUS(INNOVATION/SUDDENNESS) and is a bridge to other dimensions.
Liz Greene sees Chiron as essential in deepening our understanding of solar consciousness; for in order to choose to live life to the full, we have to face that part in us that would rather seek death.~~astro.com
The GLYPH of CHIRON is a KEY. It is the key to opening parallel doors of perception. Mythologically, Chiron is the priest king of the Centaurs and the half-brother to Zeus. Chiron was skilled in music, gymnastics, hunting, warfare, medicine and Astrology. He founded the Asclepian, the ancient healing temple.
2060 Chiron (/ˈkaɪərən/), provisional designation 1977 UB, and also known as 95P/Chiron, is a minor planet in the outer Solar System, orbiting the Sun between Saturn and Uranus. Discovered in 1977 by Charles Kowal it was the first-identified member of a new class of objects now known as centaurs—bodies orbiting between the asteroid belt and the Kuiper belt. Chiron is known to have rings, as does 10199 Chariklo (a similar centaur), Haumea (a trans-neptunian object), and the four gas giants of the solar system. ~~WIKI
Yes there are rings around Chiron, just like Saturn and they symbolize KARMA and Scientists say that CHIRON is an object that is not from our solar system. Chiron is the outsider. The Scientist who discovered Chiron called him a MAVERICK and the reputation has stuck, both with the astronomical body and the astrological archetype.
In November 2011, the group observed a stellar occultation in which Chiron passed in front of a bright star, briefly blocking its light. The researchers analysed the star’s light emissions, and the momentary shadow created by Chiron, and identified optical features that suggest the centaur may possess a circulating disc of debris. The team believes the features may signify a ring system, a circular shell of gas and dust, or symmetric jets of material shooting out from the centaur’s surface. ~~astronomynow
We have to understand this WHOLENESS that CHIRON tries to bring to our lives. The journey of HEALING is all about becoming WHOLE, realizing that everything is entangled. Nothing exists out of the quantum field! We are all emanations of the SOURCE CODE.
People fear CHIRON and they fear the wounds his journey will expose, but then again, Chiron has the ability to provide the salve or the ointment for healing. But only if you are ready. If Chiron travels through your second house, then woundingS that have to do with your earnings and finances may surface.
For me, Chiron is travelling through my seventh house of marriage and relationships and it was CONJUNCT my natal Moon recently, triggering wounds that have to do with relationships. Chiron moved into Pisces in 2010, and the year I got married. That is how intense this energy is. Chiron in the seventh can mean an INTERNAL MARRIAGE, the balancing of male/female polarities within.
The last time Chiron was in Pisces was 1960 and for people who are born between 60 to 69 will be experiencing their CHIRON return. This CHIRON RETURN is probably one of the most important cycles to work through unconscious debris and integrate your shadow self.
Barbara Hand Clow writes, “CHIRON is the teacher of the Earth connection to higher planes and the planetary sighting indicates the time has come for us to manifest our divinity.”
Saturn RETURN is also a very important experience, the first MATURATION at 29 years or so happens with Saturn. That is the time we have to take AUTHORSHIP for all the years we have lived before. Some might sink, but some thrive through Saturn returns. Just do your karma and Saturn is happy.
Chiron return is about how you FINALLY RELATE TO LIFE AROUND YOU and, and, and…how you connect to the SOURCE CODE. Are you tuning in?
Chiron can wound us if we do not face our shadows and this can be felt as a DISCONNECTION. Often this results in addiction.
Lastly, at the Chiron Return, around age 50, the more evolved way of viewing old wounds, physical or emotional, should have taken hold. You’ll have assurance divine intervention is there for you whenever you need it. You’ll have found your “holes”—what’s missing in your life—so you can patch them up and experience wholeness and fulfillment. (Sometimes words are so literal!) ~~Joyce Mason
CHIRON is not a sadist, but a trainer. He exposes those drawbacks, those psychological scars, those internal aberrations and he creates alchemy by honing our skills. Inner alchemy, nothing else. Ye sometimes we go to him kicking and screaming, but at the end the wound that remains from this experience truly reminds of how much we have managed to achieve in this life.
The CHIRONIC wounds can be your best friends now. They can guide your soul if you let them. The thing to remember is that YOU ARE NOT YOUR WOUNDS. You are not the pain. You are not the suffering. You are BEYOND all this. You are BEYOND time/space. But tell me, do you feel so? Why not? Because you are not RELATING to life as CHIRON would like you to.
While looking at your love life in the story of your natal chart, you might study MARS, Venus, Eris, MOON and others, but without Chiron, you will never know how love will wound you and whether or not you can heal yourself from the wound or not.
I have Chiron in Taurus in the 9th house form my Ascendant and this is one of Chiron’s best placement, the 9th. There is a crisis of connecting with the higher self in this incarnation however, with this placement which is why I guess it became imperative for me to become the person I have become. The connection to my HIGHER SELF is my path to healing and I have accepted this with profound depth.
There is also a chance of religion, qualifications or foreign travel creating havoc with my relationships. My spiritual opinions may not be accepted by my partner and there may be problems with his parents. Whoa! I have had my share of that! Been really unable to connect with any of the parents of the men I have been with.
A person with his Chiron in the 9th house might have experienced childhood fears concerning whatever is alien and new. The native probably was afraid of traveling far away, of foreigners around him or felt uncomfortable while observing traditions that are different from his own. Many 9th house Chiron people are either stuck in their birthplace during all their childhood, which makes it difficult for them to adjust to new ways of life. Alternatively, some have experienced feeling awkward during long trips that they made with their parents during their early years. ~~ASTROCODEX
There is definitely a part of me that wants to fly away, but because of this 9th house Chiron in Taurus, I do feel a sense of uncanny fear if you tell me that things will change, as in the place I call home. And no matter how much my parents love me, it used to be freaking weird at times visiting them. Always the outsider.
Taurus also has so much to do with material acquisitions, but here Chiron has taught me how to find greater value while interacting with 3D objects and possessions. This placement also has to do with balancing the SEXUAL CHI, which is what got me practicing sacred sexuality and working with other people’s sexual issues have given me a whole new perspective on things.
You can study your Chiron placement to see how love can wound you.
CHIRON can even point to your vocation.
Chiron’s House – It will tell you about the subject of your vocation (9th house- Philosophy, Spirituality, Higher Thought and EDUCATION)
Chiron’s sign – Style of vocation (Taurus- sensuality, security, safety, material possessions, Arts)
Chiron aspects – How easy or difficult it is to express your vocation (square Pluto/Mars, sextile Moon/Venus)
Let me discuss a few Chironic wounds, but keep in mind that WOUNDS are just OPENING of psychic energy. How do you experience wounding?
We are suddenly exposed to our faults and our flaws glare at us.
There is much disillusionment because whatever we attempt, fails.
The Chironic pain can become unbearable at which point it must be handled by your spiritual guide. Do find a companion to open up to with regards to these wounds. 8th house Chironic wounds can be sexual and often times may have to do with abuse and rape.
Bitterness and coldness of the heart, especially with a 5th house Chiron.
With Chiron, there can also be physical damage, so if your Chiron is in hard aspect to MARS or PLUTO, then you might want to be extra careful.
Psychological torments can also arise, but there is a chance of working through them.
CHIRON may shock us into awareness to bring SPIRITUAL AWAKENING. My spiritual practices reached a peak due to one such wounding, when I had to face the death of my first cat in 2011, a month after my wedding. It destroyed me, but it also built me.
What a year 2017 has been, for us all. It has been super intense and super awesome for me. And guess what Chiron has a huge hand in this. You see in 2017, Chiron moved to 28 of Pisces and then went retro and went back to 24 of Pisces. 4 degrees were traversed.
On Dec 5th, Chironl went DIRECT and it began to travel through 28 of Pisces finishing in 2018. This will trigger 24 to 28 of Pisces, so you will feel it if you have anything there. Chiron challenges Virgo, Gemini and Sagittarius. So any planet in 24 to 28 degrees of any of those signs, will also be having a Chiron transit. I have my Venus, Mars and NN being triggered and aspected, so I expect some major transitions and opportunities with healing.
At the moment of its discovery, Chiron was at 3o 11’ Taurus (in retrograde). The Sabian Symbol for this location (i.e. Taurus 4o) is: “The Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow”, or according to Dane Rudhyar’s interpretation: “Riches that come from linking the celestial and the earthly nature.” That, at the very least, should grab your attention! For probably more than any other fact, this Sabian Symbol suggests the exciting potential of this minor planet orbiting at a distance from the Sun somewhere between Saturn and Uranus. It may eve be appropriate to interpret Mr. Rudhyar’s interpretation literally. He goes on to say:
“In Genesis, the rainbow is the symbol of the Covenant of God with Noah. In all mythologies it expresses, in one way or another, a linking process — or the bridge used by divine beings to communicate with mortals. What the linking process brings to the individual consciousness is elusive, as the rainbow never ends where you are, yet it is the source of symbolic, universally valid wealth. All wealth, in a very real sense, comes from ‘commerce’, i.e. from the commingling of minds and from contracts, and thus is based on faith in the validity of the promise.” “Man need not be overawed by the celestial display of power, for it leads to a fruitful contact with beings of light. This is a natural kind of COMMUNION, involving a transubstantiation of matter.” ~~halexandria.org
At present Chiron’s themes in the lives of individuals can be clearly observed to operate most strongly through the Mutable Cross, especially Sagittarius (9th) and Virgo (6th), according to ESOTERIC ASTROLOGY.
This is so significant because CHIRON is a major player in this SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON with his SQUARE to this config. SQUARES are opposing energies, conflicting energies, so there may be angst and pain with issues that surface for you this NM, but use this wisely and you shall not regret it.
Chiron also rules over using healing CRYSTALS, so definitely find your perfect fit. 🙂
There are ARCHETYPES associated with Chiron in each sign. For instance to work through Chiron in Cancer, you can invoke MOTHER MARY. For Chiron in Aquarius, it is MAITREYA BUDDHA. Working with the harmonizing energy, you might be able to draw that healing vibe to yourself. Let me know if you want to find out who is your spiritual Guide for your Chironic journey.
“If you desire healing,
let yourself fall ill
let yourself fall ill.”
― Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi
There, the dichotomy of human existence steeped in DUALITY.
