Chiron slipped into Aries for part of 2018 (AprilSeptember) before solidly entering Aries in February of 2019, where it will remain until 2026.
Chiron’s transit through Aries will force each of us to assert our identity. The “I AM” idea is represented by Aries. We will be given opportunity to mend what is preventing us from expressing our genuine identity while Chiron transits this sign. However, in order to heal, we must first recognize the harm.
Chiron’s legend begins with parental rejection. Chiron was born from the coupling of Cronus (Saturn) and Phylira, a nymph (water spirit). He was born a centaur, and his mother abandoned him due to his abnormality. He was orphaned for a time before being adopted by Apollo. Apollo instructed him in healing, music, and prophecy (including astrology).
Chiron was able to rise above his difficult start by putting his insight to good use. He had a reputation as a brilliant healer and oracle in addition to being a great teacher. He went on to become a well-known tutor as well.
He would not have gone on his road had it not been for the initial woundhis mother’s rejection. At its core, Chiron’s story is about a constructive reaction to this inner wound.
Many of us experienced parental rejection at some point in our lives, whether subtly or blatantly. The message is simple: You are not okay just the way you are. It’s not that our parents were bad people or even abusive. As their children establish their own personality, it is typical for parents to reject aspects of their children that do not reflect them or go against their expectations. However, depending on the level of self-awareness with which parents responded to a child’s developing uniqueness, the intensity of the “parental rejection” wound might be exacerbated or decreased. And, given their own childhood wounds, their response is based on the tools available to these parents. And so on.
The wound of parental rejection prevents many of us from expressing the I AM principle. We are urged to revisit and repair this original wound now that Chiron is in Aries for the collective. The coming seven years offer an opportunity to embrace radical self-acceptance. However, we will very certainly have to fight against opposing forces in order to do so. These forces appear to be outside of our control. They come from within ourselves, from portions of our inner nature that we have previously refused to recognize.
I’ll describe my own experience as a Chiron-in-Aries native to show some of the attributes of Chiron in Aries.
Are you able to heal Chiron?
There’s a reason you might never come across a mention of Chiron in your horoscope or in a session with a professional astrologer: The comet, which orbits Saturn and Uranus, was discovered in 1977 by American astronomer Charles Kowal. As a result, astrologers who have been studying for decades or whose mentor was soaking up their own basic knowledge prior to the arrival of Chiron may choose not to include it in their charts or predictive readings. (For example, my father, who was my first mentor, began studying astrology in 1969, about a decade before Kowal noticed the comet, so it didn’t come up at all during my own astrology education.)
Chiron was named after a centaur in Greek mythology who, despite being a healer to others, was unable to heal himself, according to CafeAstrology. And it’s because of this ironic symbolism that the comet is now analyzed and employed in astrology.
What does it mean to have Chiron in Aries?
Chiron in Aries indicates that the source of your suffering is a sense of worthlessness. You’re under a lot of pressure to be the best you can be.
This isn’t surprising, given that Aries is a fire sign controlled by Mars and the Zodiac’s first sign. Mars was the god of war in Greek mythology, and in astrology, it represents our drive, passion, energy, and ambition.
Despite the fact that all Chiron placements are painful and distressing, Astrology believes Chiron in Aries to be one of the most difficult and tough. This is because it is intrinsically linked to who you are as a person. It’s the most personal and intimate wound you’ve ever experienced. This is an essential Chiron because, like Aries, it encourages you to be confident, fearless, bold, and daring in life.
The greatest way to understand Chiron in Aries is to look at persons born under this sign. They are courageous, self-assured, and fearless, while Chiron in Aries is the polar opposite. Others with this Chiron placement frequently feel as if they are failing themselves or those near to them in life.
They experience excruciating suffering as a result of believing that something is wrong with them and that they are unworthy of love, success, or any other life achievement. Their self-esteem is poor, and they believe they are insufficient. That sensation can be draining and debilitating.
What’s the nature of my Chiron wound?
Chiron was named after a Greek centaur who was known for his teaching and healing powers. Ironically, despite his wisdom and healing abilities, Chiron was unable to heal himself from the wound of a poison arrow, which caused him continuous pain, earning him the label “wounded healer.” Chiron represents the profound causes of sorrow, suffering, and injury in our lives, much as its namesake’s mythology suggests. It’s our weak spot, the part of us that’s wounded, sensitive, and exposed.
But Chiron isn’t just about discomfort. This minor planet also indicates our immense capacity to heal ourselves and others by channeling our own painful experiences into spiritual growth. Finally, Chiron teaches us how to learn from our suffering and turn it into a source of power in astrology. It reminds us that our deepest and most sensitive wounds can serve as a gateway to the most profound forms of healing for ourselves and others. Having to deal with terrible situations and conquering them can make us more compassionate, which is what Chiron is all about. It represents our ability to transform our suffering into strength.
What should I do about my Chiron wound?
The Zodiac Signs’ location of Chiron will reveal characteristics that you struggle with, as well as the ways in which you may struggle to deal with them. It demonstrates how we communicate it and how we may overcompensate at times. It can also indicate areas where we are our own greatest enemy or appear to be shooting ourselves in the foot. We normally have to put a lot of work into dealing with the pain because it is so deep, and as a result, we can become wonderful counsellors for others. It could also be the case that we are good at preaching but not so good at practicing.
The lesson of Chiron is to recognize how we deal with (or don’t deal with) our deepest woundsoften from our earliest experiences with life, things that society has advised us to bury because they are bad or inappropriate. Chiron occurs in an area of our lives where we are self-conscious, vulnerable, or humiliated. The location of Chiron sheds light on our emotional baggage and past hurts.
Saturn can also indicate areas of struggle or difficulty, although there is often an element of denial or external influences, such as a feeling of hitting a brick wall in an area or having to work harder than others. Chiron, on the other hand, is swift and penetrating to the heart, a far-reaching and very sensitive point that can sweep us off our feet or appear in unforeseen situations. Even if it doesn’t make sense, it may not be reasonable or founded in any actual fact and is more tied to what we are insecure or embarrassed about. The key to treating the Chiron wound is to accept our sensitivity and discover beauty in our flaws, as well as learning to trust ourselves with whatever we feel is lacking. To put it another way, this isn’t about “getting over” problems in these areas, but rather about recognizing our flaws and working with them to achieve genuine, long-term, comprehensive wellbeing. As a result, these will be your life’s greatest spiritual instructors.
We normally need our exact birth time for correct data in all elements of our Birth Chart and Astrology reports, but Chiron is one of the puzzle pieces that may be found out without it. If you’re not sure what yours is, utilize this chart to find out.
The Sign in which Chiron is located is typically considered to be more important, but the House in which it is located can also reveal information about the areas of our lives where it emerges or how we deal with it.
When did Chiron make his way into Aries?
It moved into Aries on April 17, 2018, retrograded into Pisces on September 25, 2018, and then returned to the cardinal fire sign on February 18, 2019, where it will stay until June 19, 2026.
What is the duration of Chiron Aries 2021?
Chiron enters Aries on July 15 and will remain there until December 19, 2021. Chiron is a “centaur,” which means it has characteristics of both asteroids and comets. In astrology, we examine the locations where we self-protect due to a traumatic experience when we look at Chiron, sometimes known as the “wounded healer.” We’re looking to Chiron as the world tries to figure out what trauma-informed practice looks like as we continue our lives after the lockdown.
During Chiron’s five-month retrograde, we’re encouraged to become more curious about our undefined/unexplored ideas and feelings in order to recover.
“Why do I self-protect in this way when presented with this behavior or situation?” Chiron Retrograde urges us to ask. “Does it really keep me safe?”
We can continue the process with an equally strong commitment to trauma recovery when Chiron moves direct in December. We are given the room and freedom to adopt various behaviors once we have a clear understanding of what occurred to us and why we react the way we do. We can reenter the world feeling worthy, confident, and willing to be seen exactly as we are.
What is the significance of Chiron?
Chiron represents our deepest scars and how we might overcome them in modern astrology.
Chiron is named after a Greek healer, philosopher, and teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself, and is symbolized by a key, emphasizing the significance of unlocking the primary lessons of this minor planet.
Our Chiron placement is our secret power in many ways. We develop wisdom while we struggle with pain, which we may give on to others like a wonderful cure.
Chiron usually spends eight years in a single zodiac sign. (However, once in Saturn’s orbit, he can fly past a single sign in less than two years.) It’s entirely up to him whether he wants outpatient surgery or a longer course of treatment.)
Because it takes Chiron 49 years to travel through all 12 zodiac signs, we all experience a “Chiron return” around our 50th birthday.
Our inner scars may resurface at this stage, requiring another session of therapy, especially if we’ve previously avoided any deeper self-examination. If we’ve “done our work,” we might be asked to take on leadership roles that allow us to share our knowledge and use our healing abilities at this time.
What is Chiron’s current location?
Because Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is related with childlike emotions, Chiron is currently in Aries, indicating that you are attempting to alleviate suffering from your childhood or youth. The centaur Chiron will be retrograde from July 15th to December 19th.
What effect will Chiron’s retrograde in Aries have on me?
This Chiron transit, like in mythology, will show the wounds that we can’t heal on our own – those that require additional TLC and outside help. Stardust comments: “With Chiron retrograde in the sign of Aries, we have the opportunity to examine within and resolve any newly buried issues or feelings.”
