Chiron the Wounded Healer

In Greek mythology, Chiron is the Immortal Healer, unable to heal his own wounds, though he does heal others. He is often associated with the King of Cups, someone who is great at helping others but unable to help himself. A lot of us get into healing because we start out healing ourselves, and then move onto sharing that knowledge with others. Whereas the myth says that Chiron is unable to heal himself, I don't believe that to be true for us. The theory is that if we find the placement of the asteroid Chiron in our birth charts, we can figure out where our soul bears the deepest past life wounds. Any efforts to heal that aspect will have the biggest payout. 

Again, the Chiron myth tells us that this scar will be with us through life, but my intuition tells me that we can heal and release it with water, especially if that water is charged with the intention to clear and heal the soul. Running water is gentle, but with time, it is  powerful enough to carve out canyons and wear down rocks. By infusing our drinking water with healing energy and intending for it to reach the soul, we can heal even the deepest spiritual wounds. There's one more point, and that's the fact that Chiron (the asteroid) was only discovered in 1977. In astrology, the theory is that planets, asteroids and star systems are discovered when their effects become relevant. We may be the first generation to have the self-awareness necessary for this soul healing to occur. I'm still a Chiron Rookie and it will take a good deal of meditation before I make sense of things. 

If you'd like to find your own Chiron, you can generate a Free Birth Chart at astrologer Jan Spiller's website here (her books are amazing too, especially Astrology for the Soul). Then follow the link to this article on Chiron in the Houses and Signs, to see what it all means. In my case, it was quite interesting because my Chiron is in Taurus (a 2nd House sign) and I don't have any planets in that quadrant on self, possessions or community.  Chiron in Taurus is supposed to be about my relationship with material things, and I am prone to leaving things behind. For example, when I moved from London to Mexico last year, a back injury kept me from moving my things, and rather than pack I gave almost everything to charity. Not sure what that means but Chiron in Taurus says it's about a wound in the "body" and also an irrational relationship with material things. This can lead to "lots of waste" or lots of "economy." I do tend to travel extremely light, my wardrobe is typically small and slow to replenish itself.  

I'm not sure what any of this means just yet. Please let us know what comes up for you and if it resonates. Leave your comments below, or click through to my FB page and comment here. If by the most amazing twist of fate, an astrologer reads this, please share your insights on Chiron with us! =) 

My next post will be on water and how we can charge it with healing energy. 


Stay tuned!
