Astrology is predicated on archetypes and synchronicity.
Our neighboring planets, Venus and Mars, have been named after the two Roman Gods, and the qualities of those Roman gods are mirrored within the astrological qualities of Venus and Mars.
Venus was the Goddess of magnificence and love, and in astrology, Venus guidelines magnificence and love. Mars was the God of conflict, and in astrology, Mars guidelines how we assert ourselves and go for what we would like, and sure, how we struggle or go to conflict.
The identical factor applies to Chiron, who was named after the Greek centaur and demigod. If we have a look at the Greek delusion of Chiron, we perceive the qualities and the themes Chiron guidelines in our natal chart.
In astrology, Chiron is called the Wounded Healer. However there’s rather more to Chiron.
Let’s dissect the Greek delusion to grasp what Chiron stands for:
1st theme – Abandonment
Saturn, Chiron’s father reworked right into a horse when he mated with Chiron’s mom. Consequently, Chiron was born half-human, half-horse. Disgusted by his look, his mom abandons him.
Subsequently, in astrology, Chiron guidelines themes of abandonment, disgrace, or being rejected simply because we’re completely different.
Chiron is the place we really feel there’s one thing improper with us, the place we really feel deserted, odd, and insufficient.
2nd theme – Educating and Therapeutic
After he’s deserted, Chiron is adopted by Apollo, the Greek model of the Solar. Apollo teaches Chiron the whole lot he is aware of – poetry, medication, herbalism, astrology.
Since he was half-man, half-horse, Chiron had a bonus. Not solely was he capable of entry divine perception due to his half-godly nature, however he was additionally very a lot linked to nature, due to his half-horse nature.
Chiron was capable of mix one of the best of the two worlds, changing into the wisest, and most revered trainer and healer of his instances.
Subsequently, Chiron guidelines these academics or folks that see our potential and assist us heal and develop. Chiron additionally guidelines holistic therapeutic – therapeutic that comes once we mix completely different approaches, each pure and non secular.
Not solely was there nothing improper with Chiron (even when he was seen as ‘ugly’ or ‘completely different’ even by his personal mother and father) – nevertheless it was precisely his distinctive half-animal, half-divine twin nature that allowed him to turn into a fantastic healer.
That’s why our deepest wounds are sometimes our presents in disguise. It’s precisely these components of us which can be uncommon, odd, or completely different that permit us to be artistic, and discover therapeutic or options the place conventional strategies fail.
third theme – Transcendence and Legacy
Chiron is unintentionally wounded by Hercules, one in every of his college students. To be launched from struggling, Chiron trades his immortality with Prometheus (Uranus).
Prometheus was chained to a rock as a result of he stole fireplace from the Gods and gave it to people. As a result of he needed to assist people, Prometheus was punished by Gods and chained to a rock the place he was tortured by an eagle consuming his liver into eternity.
When Chiron trades his immortality, two issues occur: Prometheus is about free, and Chiron is reworked into the gorgeous constellation of Centaurus, one of many greatest constellations within the sky.
What does that imply?
Let’s get again to astronomy. Chiron orbits between Saturn, the final planet seen to the bare eye, and Uranus, the primary outer planet. Uranus is a logo of heaven, the divine, liberation and enlightenment.
Chiron is the bridge between Saturn and Uranus, and it’s our solely technique to join or bridge the two worlds – the fabric world of Saturn, and the divine world of Uranus. If we would like Uranus’ promise of freedom, liberation and enlightenment, the one manner by way of is Chiron.
BUT – and that is the place issues get attention-grabbing – so long as we’re half-human, there is part of us that’s merely not designed for the 5D Uranian realities.
That a part of us that’s nature (Saturn) must be alchemized and reworked. The constellation of Centaurus is a logo of our legacy. After we ‘die’ i.e. step into the Uranian, 5D actuality, what will we go away behind? Our best legacy on Earth is our Chiron work.
Our efforts to take what nature has gifted us with – our genes, our DNA, our ‘nature’, and to alchemize these into our best potential expression, is our life’s work. It’s within the steady course of of reworking our ‘wounds’ into presents that we are able to lastly obtain and transcend our life’s function.
