Chiron in our chart is that painful itchy spot in our psyche. It is that place where we feel most vulnerable and least capable of dealing with rationally. I don’t think it ever stops hurting…But we learn to deal with it better.
We must remember we ALL have our pain to carry. I think Chiron calls for acceptance of that wound, allow it to scar and wear it to battle with pride. Sometimes it will have bad days, it will burn and hurt to the bottom of your soul. Some days you can look at it and be proud of how far you have come- regardless of the pain. You will only see the scar but it will be numb.
What about healing you ask? Well, Chiron is often our most “wise” aspect. It shows us great pain but also the reasons for it. The healing is made of acceptance and wisdom gained… At least in my experience, completely healing a Chiron wound never means not experiencing it again. Instead, I find the potential for healing has more to do with other people. Chiron shows the area where you can help other people heal. That has been my experience of it. I have Chiron in the 11th house, so friendships/bullying in groups are the areas of pain. I become like a small weak child it those areas when that wound is reopened. This is usually related to childhood conditioning and “triggers”.
My healing of Chiron is about wanting and knowing how to help those people in society that feel “different” and strange. Having known the feeling myself I know what they need and feel very passionate about protecting people who are bullied. So yes, Chiron is both that small scared child and wise old man.
In a natal chart, I would definitely pay attention if you have Chiron conjunct an angel or aspecting other planets. Transits too can show you how your Chiron story tends to play out.
Chiron in the first house: Your greatest wound is related to your sense of identity and importance. Early life experiences didn’t allow you to express your personality in a way that fits what you want to convey. You may have been bullied or ridiculed as a child. You appear vulnerable to other people.
Chiron in the second house: You have a lot of pain around feeling safe and secure. You may lack the structure of support to feel like you have a place to fall on a rainy day. You may hurt over matters of self-value and stability.
