Chiron Direct in Aries: Active Healing 🖤

It’s hours after the Cancer full Moon on 26 December, 2023, and Chiron finishes its five month long retrograde to begin moving forward once again in Aries, where it has been since 2018 and will continue through 2027.

What does Chiron represent in Astrology?

First discovered in 1977, Chiron is relatively new to our study of both astronomy and astrology. In mythology, however, Chiron holds rich history and wisdom we can call upon to understand this minor planet with greater ease.

In mythology, Chiron was known as the wounded healer. A centaur who was abandoned at birth by his mother, Chiron grew into adulthood feeling unloved and unwanted. His journey is a powerful one, however, as he built himself up and began teaching combat to some of the most well-known Greek hero’s. Despite, or perhaps because of, his wounds, he created his own path of power.

One day, he was accidentally wounded with a poison arrow. Due to the pain, he naturally began studying and even mastering a variety of healing modalities. He learned with such depth, wisdom, and knowledge that he then began teaching these healing arts to the gods, all while being unable to heal his own wound.

Chiron became well known across the seas as a powerful healer, teacher, psychic and philosopher, and thus came the name the ‘Wounded Healer’.

In evolutionary Astrology, it is suggested that the role Chiron plays in our life or the wounding it represents is one that we come into this life with, wounds or karma from past lives.

In psychological astrology, it is looked to as wounding from childhood. Either way, there can be a felt experience of a core wound with Chiron, yet as shown by his story, Chiron is also a portal into deep wisdom, healing, compassion and value. As the famous Persian poet Rumi once said, “the wound is where the light enters”.

Chiron is our healer of the zodiac.

It is the medicine, wisdom, teachings, compassion, and knowledge found within our hurts, found within our wounds.

Chiron Direct in Aries

While in retrograde since July 2023, we were invited into reflection and inner contemplation around those inner hurts – the spaces in our lives that can feel like a sensitive, tender spot. We all have them.

We were invited to bring compassion through this inner reflection, to tend to ourselves with softness and curiosity, so that we may begin to see these hurts from another perspective, reframing our connection with and narrative of these spaces within us.

As Chiron stations direct and begins to move forward once again on 26 December 2023, we are invited to take a more active approach with our healing. The emphasis turns from reflective to active, and from inward to outward.

While moving forward, we are offered more energy and courage to be with what is ours to be with. And we are offered greater access to the wisdom, medicine, and strength that is available within these tender spaces of ourselves.

Chiron in mythology was not only the wounded, he was also the teacher, the healer, the mystic and the sage. He was the philosopher and the guide for all around him. It is through tending to his wounds that he began his studies of medicine and various healing modalities, and gained access to the wisdom that would be shared across the lands for years to come.

As Chiron returns to its forward movement once again, we are reminded of our own unique medicine found within the caves of our own unique hurts. No one experiences life the way you do, and no one has walked the same path that you have. Only you have access to the medicine that is held within your life.

While in the realm of Aries, these invitations come so that we may tend to the building of our inner courage, to the reclamation of our individual selves, our unique path, our desires, and our willpower. It is an invitation to take up the space that is ours, to direct more of our energy into our sense of selfhood, and claim with confidence, the direction that we are taking our life in.

We are offered a new sense of vitality in the way we relate to the hurts that sit within our body, as if we are gifted a knowing that we’re okay, that we have the courage to continue, to find strength within ourselves, and to stand tall.

There is beauty in this, there is a vast amount of medicine and healing within this movement in our skies.
