Chiron the healer understands what it is to be wounded and the power that the healed have to support others.
Chiron is a planet very dear to my heart, as it is one of the most-aspected planets in my own natal birth chart. With Chiron at 2 degrees Pisces in my 10th house, I was born to be a healer. A journey which took almost 50 years to fulfil.
According to ancient myth, Chiron was wounded twice. Once through the rejection he faced from both of his arents at birth – a profound emotional wound, and second, when he was accidentally hit by Heracles’s arrow, which was coated with the poisonous blood of Hydra. He turns the process of dealing with those wounds into a powerful ability to support others. So, the wounded being does not hide from their pain, but processes adn transforms it to become a deeply intuitive healer.
Healing emotional wounds
Chiron in our natal birth chart represents wounds we need to heal, and he also shows how, by healing them, we inspire others to heal. He also shows us how we can use our experience of pain and healing to become more open to and supportive of others. Chiron reminds us that pain is part of life for all of us, but that healing and connection are constant powerful processes too.
My late daughter Ruth Seavers, despite having such a strong stellium in Scorpio and an almost equally strong stellium in Virgo, had Chiron in her fifth house of creativity, as did her late father David Seavers before her. A childhood wound around bringing her art out in the world. Which I now do on her behalf. The process of ensuring her art and words survive her death has been deeply healing after terrible loss.
Prince Harry and Prince Wlliam both poignantly share the same placement of Chiron in their fifth house. Both, of course, have experienced deep personal pain, and while they are currently distant in their personal lives, both have a deep commitment to supporting healing for others.
Chiron and necessary healing
Never underestimate Chiron, and the power of taking time out from the daily routines of the world, to engage in what may be very necessary healing before you relocate or recommit to any new area in your life. If you are struggling with hurt and emotional wounds, time spent on a Chiron line, can be profoundly healing depending, of course, on how Chiron is aspected in your chart.
Is there one thing in your life you wish to heal and move on from? A relationship that has broken down, a disappointment that has derailed your sense of purpose …. These are the kinds of wounds that can fester if we do not do the necessar ywork to transform them and heal ourselves.
Are you ready to resolve wounds? The process can lead you to a point where the wounds you have experienced are less painful. It can also help you to increase your connection with and empathy for others. As well as empathy for yourself!
The more we heal, the more authentic our lives become!
