When a planet is retrograde in the natal chart, it functions subconciously. This planet’s energy has been swallowed; although it has a less significant impact on your life, it is still significant.
When referring to a Chiron retrograde natal placement, it signifies that at the time of your birth, this asteroid appeared to be moving backward.
What does Chiron being retrograde mean?
Your natal chart’s placement of Chiron can guide you in addressing any areas of your life where you may have encountered trauma. It helps us strike a balance between freedom and responsibility as it lies between erratic Uranus and rigid Saturn. In order to go forward and live your best, healthiest life, you should finally face those old hurts when the comet turns retrograde.
On Thursday, July 15, Chiron retrograde begins, and it lasts until Sunday, December 19. The full retrograde occurs in the flamboyant fire sign of Aries. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, this courageous energy can assist you in beginning therapy, ending a bad relationship, or realizing the value of self-care. Many of us have trauma, whether it be generational, resulting from sexual assault, or from other pain sites, since the world can be a terrible place.
What transpires when Chiron moves backwards?
The cosmos or cosmic forces are attempting to guide us while Chiron retrogrades toward acknowledging the emotional suffering we bear, embracing it, and then working toward releasing and letting go of old negative recordings, voices, habits, or other ways that we keep the pain alive or even contribute to it. Alternatively said, we’re all
What does the birth chart symbol Chiron mean?
Chiron is the astrological symbol for our deepest wounds and our capacity to heal them.
Chiron is a minor planet whose name refers to a Greek healer, philosopher, and teacher who, tragically, was unable to heal himself. Chiron is represented by a key, underscoring the significance of understanding its important lessons.
Our Chiron placement is, in many ways, our secret strength. As we struggle with suffering, we develop insight that we might use to heal others.
Chiron often spends eight years in a single sign of the zodiac. (When he enters Saturn’s orbit, though, he can fly by one sign in less than two years. He has the choice of having an outpatient procedure or choosing a longer course of therapy.)
We all experience a “Chiron return” around our 50th birthday since Chiron travels through all 12 zodiac signs in about 49 years.
At this stage, our deepest scars could resurface for additional therapy, particularly if we’ve previously resisted engaging in any deeper introspection. When we’ve “done our work,” we might be given leadership positions that let us share our knowledge and exercise our healing abilities.
Chiron does it travel backwards?
You’ve probably observed that the sky likes to give homework assignments, whether you’ve read that a full moon will require difficult introspection on a relationship or you’ve learned that you’re in the middle of your Saturn return. Even though you may feel as though you don’t need to add any more labor to your already-overflowing plate, you’ll usually come to understand the lessons astrology is trying to teach you either during or after a test. The most recent astrological opportunity to embrace discomfort for your own good is the Chiron retrograde, which starts on July 19 and lasts until December 23, 2022.
Why do I have a Chiron wound?
Chiron is named after a mythological Greek centaur known for his skill as a teacher and healer. Ironically, despite all of his knowledge and healing abilities, Chiron was unable to repair the poison arrow wound that had given him chronic suffering. This is how the comet got the name “wounded healer.” Chiron is a symbol for the profound roots of sorrow, suffering, and injury in our lives, much as its namesake’s mythology suggests. That area of us that feels damaged, sensitive, and vulnerable is our weak spot.
But pain isn’t the only aspect of Chiron. This minor planet also stands for the incredible capacity we have to use our own difficult experiences to cure others and transform them into spiritual growth. In the end, Chiron in astrology teaches us how to draw strength from our suffering and learn from it. It teaches us that our most sensitive and profound wounds can actually serve as a gateway to the most profound kind of both personal and collective healing. Chiron is all about overcoming obstacles since doing so frequently increases our capacity for empathy. It represents our capacity to transform our suffering into strength.
How can my Chiron be cured?
The Zodiac Signs’ placement of Chiron will reveal qualities in you that you may find challenging, as well as possible ways you might find it difficult to handle this particular feature. It demonstrates how we express it and, at times, how we overcompensate. It may also highlight instances in which we appear to be shooting ourselves in the foot or to be our own worst enemies. Since we typically have to put a lot of effort into healing the wound because it is so deep, we can also become wonderful counselors for others. It may also be the case that we preach well but don’t practice as well.
The lesson of Chiron is to recognize how we handleor don’t handleour deepest wounds, which frequently stem from our very first interactions with people and which society subsequently tells us to conceal because they are wrong or unacceptable. Chiron usually shows up at a place where we feel exposed, vulnerable, or ashamed. Chiron’s position sheds light on our emotional baggage and past wounds.
Saturn can occasionally indicate regions of struggle or difficulty, but those are different since they frequently involve some form of denial or outside influences, such as the sensation of constantly coming up against a brick wall or having to work harder than others. Chiron, on the other hand, is swift and piercing to the heart, a broad and extremely sensitive point that may sweep over us without warning or surface in unexpected circumstances. Even if it doesn’t make sense, it might not be logical or grounded in fact and instead be more tied to our insecurities or feelings of embarrassment. Learning to trust ourselves with whatever we feel is lacking, as well as embracing our sensitivity and finding beauty in our flaws, are the keys to healing the Chiron wound. To put it another way, this isn’t always about “getting over challenges in these areas, but rather about acknowledging our weaknesses and collaborating with them for genuine, long-term, comprehensive wellbeing. These people will serve as your life’s greatest spiritual mentors in turn.
Chiron is one of the puzzle pieces that can be figured out without a precise birth time, but like with all other components of our Birth Chart and Astrology reports, we typically require our actual birth time for accurate data. This chart might help you determine yours if you are unsure of yours.
Chiron’s Sign is often considered to be more significant, but the House it is in can also reveal details about the parts of our lives where it manifests or how we approach dealing with it.
2021: Where is Chiron now?
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is linked to infantile emotions, so while Chiron is currently there, you are attempting to ease suffering from your youth or childhood. The centaur Chiron will be retrograde from July 15 to December 19.
Chiron does it go backwards?
You might have heard about Mercury retrograde and been interested in the astronomical implications.
Retrograde refers to motion in the opposite direction, therefore when Mercury is in this position, it appears to be going backwards to us on Earth.
This indicates that Mercury is actually moving backward through the signs of the zodiac rather than forward.
It is an effective and quantifiable optical illusion.
Chiron also moves backward.
Chiron moves forward for more than half of the year (astrologers refer to this as “direct motion”), but we refer to a slowing down, stopping, and turning backwards or forwards of Chiron as a “station.”
When Chiron is turning backwards, an astrologer would state, “Chiron is stationary and turning retrograde today,” or “Chiron is stationary retrograde.”
We say “Chiron is stationary and turning direct today” or “Chiron is stationary direct” when the planet is turning forward.
Because the planet we’re discussing is actually pivoting and because stations frequently result in pivotal occurrences for those of us on Earth who are being affected, I refer to these stations as “pivotal days.”
The character of the transiting planet, in this case Chiron, will determine how those critical events cause changes in us.
How does Chiron change us?By healing us, once and for all, and by restoring us to wholeness.
Chiron transits can make you feel as though something is hurting you. Frequently, it seems as though you are being torn open and a new wound is being placed in the present. However, if you look closer, you’ll discover that the past has risen up to meld with the present and reminds you of something unpleasant from the past. It may take some more examination to realize that you are simultaneously dealing with both wounds. You need healing in order to be totally present once more, and Chiron has made that clear to you.
Chiron’s mission is to bring about wholeness.
Chiron joins together things that have been torn apart or broken in order to mend them and finally reintegrate them.
Some refer to this as soul retrieval, but Chiron may also restore damaged relationships, shattered homes (Moon), and broken reputations (Saturn) (Venus).
In order for the mending to take place, Chiron needs to bring to mind the previous time when the thing was shattered.
The beauty of it is that you can become more integrated and entire in that area than you’ve ever been if you let it happen rather than resisting it.
The Chiron Return, which occurs when Chiron has circled the zodiac once and comes back to the place it was at the time of your birth, is one of the most significant Chiron transits.
Everyone experiences this the year they turn 50, which may help to explain why this age is so difficult and full of regret.
However, it marks a coming of age for real healers, integrators, whole-makers, and bridge-builders.
Movement of Chiron this year:
In 2022, Chiron moves forward to the 16th degree of Aries, turns retrograde and moves backward to the 11th degree of Aries, then moves forward through the 16th degree of Aries once more after turning direct. Then it continues on to the next degree, where it will repeat the process the following year.
How does this affect you?
This indicates that this year, Chiron will transit any planet that is between 11 and 16 degrees of Aries. Any planet between 11 and 16 degrees in any of Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn is experiencing a Chiron transit because Chiron in Aries forms a hard aspect to those planets.
Peaks in the intensity of this transit:
A transit will affect you most powerfully at its exact time as well as during its stations, or key days. Therefore, if Mars is at 13 degrees of Capricorn, you’ll experience Chiron’s effect most strongly when it transits 13 degrees of Aries as well as on the days it goes direct and retrograde.
When does Chiron make a comeback?
The Chiron Return occurs when the planet returns to the location it was in when you were born, and it only happens once in your lifetime. It typically remains there for seven to eight years.
