I have certain areas in Astrology with which I am fascinated. Chiron is one. I have many articles on Chiron. I am fascinated by Chiron for a number of reasons. One is that pain is very “isolating”. In other words, when we feel deep pain, we tend to think we are different and “weird”. This makes us run and hide from people. People are what we NEED,not that from which we run.
This insight has taken me a long time to see. I have hidden from people. I have had a false front, as most of us do. The false face is not because one feels superior. It is because one feels ashamed. One is too vulnerable to take “one more hit”: one more criticism, one more insult, one more snub. Where does Chiron fit in here? Chiron tells us that we all have pain. Yes, the pain of one person can be different from another. Yes, some people have a great deal more pain than others. However, everyone understands a common language of pain.
This is an article on Chiron, so I will try to give some insights into Chiron. I have an article on Chiron in the houses. I think it explains well how Chiron functions in each house. Knowing your house of Chiron is crucial to understanding yourself. IF your house of Chiron does not fit, “I* think your time of birth may not be correct. Your house of Chiron SHOULD fit your deepest pain. This is my insight from doing thousands of charts.
Another thing I have learned from doing charts is that Chiron in synastry is very “weird”. I liken Chiron in synastry to a Mobius strip. It has a strange and unexpected configuration. I learned this lesson from doing many, many charts and seeing Chiron play out in my own relationships. The basic mechanism for Chiron in synastry is that people get very close, very fast. They feel as if they have found their “one and only” romantic partner or they feel they have found their BFF(best friend forever). This seems to last a short time. Then, something very, very trifling seems to break them up.For example, one girl may say that she does not like blue cars. The other girl may say that she HAS a blue car. Due to the car color “argument”, one girl may never wants to talk the other girl again. Of course, this is a silly example, but it does illustrate how insignificant the “triggering” situation may be.
Chiron in synastry is one of the strangest things I have seen in the charts, if not the strangest. Just a note about Chiron in families. Parents and children, often, have strong Chiron aspects. I don’t know why, but the parents and children can still be very close and loving. Perhaps, the family relationships allow for a wider range of behaviors before they break.
Now, I will discuss what happens the cases in which Chiron aspects personal planets in the natal chart. I have several articles on this, so will give a only a brief overview here. It is really fascinating to see Chiron play out in charts. However, it is very, very painful for the client. Chiron in conjunction or hard aspect to Mars seems to make it very hard for the male client to be “male”. The struggle seems to be in assertion, particularly when it comes to “chasing” women and being the dominant one relationships. Being male, somehow, equates to pain for these natives. I am not sure how Mars/Chiron functions in the female chart. I have not seen enough female charts with this aspect to speculate.
Another phenomenon I have seen quite a bit is Venus conjunct Chiron in the natal chart. In this case, the native seems to have pain with love. The love seems to be that of romantic love, rather than platonic love or family love, but I cannot say that for certain. In these cases of Chiron/Venus, the native, often, feels hopeless when it comes to love and may,even, give up.It is important to remember that the orb is very important. An exact orb will be very much stronger than a three degree orb or a five degree orb. If anything is exact in the natal chart, there should be a red flag attached to it because it will be a dominant theme.
Chiron conjunct the Sun in the natal chart reveals a relationship with the father that is painful, the closer the orb, the more painful Chiron in hard aspect to the Sun would indicate the same. In the case of the square, the relationship may be more resistant to change and may be more difficult for the native to both see and cope with. With the opposition, the relationship may work, at times. At other times, it may fracture. This is the general mechanism for squares and oppositions in synastry.
Chiron conjunct the Moon reveals a very hard relationship with the mother.
I seem to have discovered the phenomenon of Chiron conjunct the Ascendant. This seems to indicate bullying in almost all of the cases I have seen, especially if the orb is close(1-3)degrees. I have seen one exception, in which the native had a Pluto/Dejanira conjunction, which I have. This makes the native very strong when it comes to bullying. I am very strong when it comes to bullying.
Chiron conjunct the Angles is a fascinating study. I am fascinated by the Angles(Ascendant, IC, Descendant, MC) in the natal chart. They are such, extremely sensitive points. They reveal a great deal about the native. In synastry, if anyone conjuncts the Angles, the native feels it very strongly, for better or worse.
Chiron conjunct the Ascendant seems to indicate bullying, as I said. Chiron conjunct the IC seems to indicate a very painful childhood. Chiron conjunct the DSC seems to indicate a person who is attracted to people with a great deal of pain i.e wounded birds. Chiron conjunct the MC seems to be pain that all the world can see URRGG. Also, this position seems to indicate a person who feels he does not “fit” into his society for some reason.
I think I will end this article now and leave you with a few links. I could go on for days about Chiron. I have other topics which fascinate me, such as the North Node and many of the asteroids. Astrology can never be fully mined. It is like the Bible. One could live for millions of years and still be a humble student. Please, share your experiences, so we can learn together. That is the point!
