Chiron Retrograde 11 July 2020 – 15 December 2020
Chiron The Wounded Healer
Chiron orbits in the Kuiper belt which is between Jupiter and Neptune. He is now classified as both a minor planet and a comet, although he was originally designated as an asteroid. Chiron orbits between Saturn and Uranus, so issues with authority figures and unpredictable tumultuous events can be indicated if you have strong Chiron aspects.
History of Chiron
In astrology Chiron is known as a ‘Centaur Asteroid’. The centaurs were half human half horse mythological creatures, in touch with both their natural instincts and human analytical thinking. Sometimes Centaurs were ‘torn’ between the demands of instinct and reason. In Greek mythology, Chiron was wounded in battle but could never heal himself even though he was a gifted healer. Today, thanks to the famous psychiatrist Carl Jung, Chiron is known as ‘The Wounded Healer’.
Old Wounds May Surface
When Chiron is retrograde, our spiritual, emotional and psychological wounds become raw and sore. They’re like scars that ache due to certain weather conditions. The past has gone, we have mentally dealt with it but on occasion, we are hurt anew by what has happened in the past. Depending on where Chiron is in our natal chart, this area of your life will ‘play up’ again, calling us to review, release and heal certain aspects of the past. We may feel rejected, disappointed or betrayed by others. We are called to meditate on the situation and release the feelings trapped in our physical and emotional bodies so that we can obtain peace of mind once again.
Time Is Also A Healer
Many people with Chiron placements, will help other people, animals and the Earth. We have the personal experience to try and assist, effecting healing and release for others, yet still we carry our own wounds, often in silence. Time is also a healer, so with its passing, we eventually heal to a certain extent, but often it takes a very long time. The direction of life changes as a result of these wounds and healings and we end up in the helping industries such as social work, welfare, in the esoteric fields such as psychic reading, astrology and other spiritual pursuits.
