In Greek mythology, Chiron was held to be the superlative centaur amongst his brethren, as he was called as the “wisest and justest of all the centaurs”.
Chiron’s ingress into Aries, the 0 point of the Zodiac on February 18 is an important chapter in 2019’s Astrological landscape, a landscape that will look unrecognizable by 2020. Chiron, teetering at the last degree of the Zodiac after 8 years in Pisces, as Uranus finishes its final days in Aries, before its shift into Taurus. Both are moving out of 8-year cycle, into another. Creating new terrains to explore. Ground Zero is here, the changing of the guard is upon us. New opportunities are calling. That ‘feeling’ of something being in flux, changing or shifting IS real.
If Uranus was the great awakener and disruptor, Chiron is the Grand Doctor or Healer who has come to help tend to the cracks and wounds left over by Uranus in Aries. This shift will be more focused on healing, education and teachers or teaching to help assist us in Aries style issues i.e.: Anger, Self-Loathing and Violence, to help develop a healthier manifestation of our Inner Warrior’s.
Shock and Awe or knee jerk reactions will be replaced with Patience, Leadership and Wisdom as we tend to our Aries issues. This is a huge energetic shift for everyone, but especially so for Aries, and the Cardinal Signs. Capricorn, Libra, and Cancer, for whom Uranus’ ‘little earthquakes’ have been most concentrated.
Chiron in Pisces introduced ideas such as collective and subconscious healing or therapy. Since 2011, there has been a huge upswing in alternative healing modalities, examples include sound healing, psychotherapy, reiki, energy work or any other healing modality’s which works with the subconscious, or helps bring the other half or shadow into the light, for integration. No longer on the outside, Alternative forms of healing are more mainstream and accessible. Going off to have a session in your flotation tanks, or Jungian Psychotherapist or perhaps a reiki session are all very Chiron in Pisces, methods for integrating Pisces’ issues of Escapism, Denial and Lacking Boundaries.
Chiron’s shift into Aries, is uncharted terrain. We haven’t experienced Chiron in Aries consciously. Due to its discovery in 1977, we have only worked with Chiron in Aries at a subconscious level. Chiron’s focus will be around individual work, rather than merging into others. For example, once we diffuse our own anger, there will be little opportunity to project it on to others. What is mine will be very much separated from what is yours, as we seek to individuate our lessons. Aries themes of Violence, Anger, Self-Loathing, Competition, Aggression and Power will be more prominent for reworking or addressing. Never has there been a better time as a society to explore issues about Violence against Women or Gun Control.
Chiron is situated between Saturn (restriction and fear) and Uranus (freedom and liberation). With Chiron, the Bridge between the two. Our experiences with Chiron enables us to be recognized and supported for our journey from fear and restriction to freedom and liberation. As when the individual is at peak health and strength, across the Mind, Body and Spirit axis, it is then that they can offer their best service to the others around them. Chiron in Aries is very much the transit for addressing the issues of Self.
How-ever it unfolds, there will be no denying of “your stuff”. Hiding behind martyrdom or blaming others, will no longer work. Chiron in Aries will be a strong influence in allowing us all to look at how we engage with and reflect Anger at its very basic level, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
