The first of three exact alignments between Saturn in Aquarius and Chiron in Aries takes place today. Chiron is the planet of wounding and healing, and it is instrumental in bridging the human experience between Saturn’s focus on the mundane and practical to Uranus, the planet which is symbolized by the pouring of wisdom from the stars to the earth. For this reason, the symbolism of this harmonious sextile between Saturn and Chiron, healing the human personality, can help us to make that leap to the transformation of Saturn squaring Uranus which forces a radical departure from that which is known and expected.
The energies are building for the New Moon on the 11th – the Moon conjoins Pluto today at the end of Capricorn, forcing the abandonment of something we thought was important before moving into the Brand Newness of the Aquarius New Moon stellium (six planetary bodies in Aquarius!). Under the influence of Saturn sextile Chiron we can more easily heal something broken within us. Right now all it takes is acknowledging that weakness and the intention to heal, and Saturn and Chiron will do the rest.

Thank you Lynn; so well explained!
Thanks Gina! ❤️
Thank you so so much for the info, my has Chiron in Aries in the 8th house( he was born september 14 2021) I would like to know if that placment will STILL be hard or because Saturn sextile Chiron will be easier to overcome or hopefully not experience the scary things I heard about this placement.
I appreciate your help.
There is nothing inherently scary about Chiron in Aries in the 8th house – everyone has Chiron somewhere. But he would have Chiron opposing the Sun and will likely be very sensitive emotionally. But yes, the sextile from Saturn to Chiron would help to facilitate the healing process and is a nice thing to add.
That said, before you scare yourself about something in a birthchart it’s always a good idea to consult with a trusted astrologer. ❤️
