Chiron’s placement in your astrology birthchart shines light on what you’ve chosen to work through this lifetime. With his symbol shaped like a key could Chiron be the secret to opening a new door to your life?
“The wound is the place where the light enters you.” ~ Rumi
Chiron takes 40/50 years to journey through all 12 zodiac signs. From around the ages of 42 to 51 you will experience your Chiron Return.
When Chiron returns within 10 degrees of your natal Chiron, that’s when the lightning bolt moment or healing crisis often occurs! If you’ve resisted the temptation to heal old wounds or not live to your full potential this is when your mid-life crisis can step into play.
For those of you on path, when Chiron returns to your sign, your life purpose can take you to new highs. Living a life of abundance whilst helping others on their journey. Unlocking Chiron’s key is stepping into the life of your dreams.
How long does Chiron stay in a sign? Depending on how much work he feels needs to be done, Chiron weaves his way in and out. He generally spends 8 years in Aries with 1.5 years in Libra. A possible explanation could be more time is needed to work on ‘asserting the self through Aries’ than ‘learning balance through Libra’.
BIG NEWS! So today 18/19 Feb 2019 (depending on where you are in the world) marks a rather special occasion. Chiron has just moved from letting go of limiting beliefs in Pisces (the 12th and final sign of the Zodiac) to learning independence in Aries (the 1st and beginning). With a super full moon in the works, if you’re feeling internal shifts – just know there are some major energies happening right now.
Whether you’re having your Chiron return or not, recognising and healing through Chiron’s energy will give you the key to transformation.
With occasional back-tracks through retrogrades, I’ve included below dates and years so you can see when Chiron journeys to transform your life. Your house placement of Chiron gives further insight, you will need your time of birth for this (contact me for more info).
