Chiron’s orbit tells an interesting story – most of the time this little planetoid with comet-like properties sandwiches itself between the last of the personal planets, Saturn, and the first of the transpersonal planets, Uranus. This is significant because in facilitating the healing of psycho-emotional and spiritual wounds that keep us stuck, it assists in the process of transformation. Most of us have developed good coping strategies to deal with any lingering emotional pain, but under Chiron’s tutelage we have to face these areas of trauma and ultimately release them. This isn’t comfortable, but it is exhilarating as we let go of all that stuck energy!
Today Chiron turns retrograde – not an unusual event since Chiron, like the outer planets, is retrograde approximately half the year. When Chiron is retrograde its influence is more personal – it’s like having a teacher move into your home. The process of evolution can be accelerated if your personal chart is being activated by Chiron (any planets between 10-20 degrees of the cardinal signs Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn are affected right now by Chiron). The key to getting the most out of Chiron events is to learn to relax around the heart, feel the energy of emotion, and leave the story behind. ❤️
