After 5 months in retrograde, Chiron just turned direct at 27° Pisces on December 9th, 2018. This is the last time Chiron goes direct in Pisces, at least for the next 50 years.
On the same day, Chiron makes a beautiful grand water trine with Mercury (at 27° Scorpio) and with the North Node (at 27° Cancer).
Mercury is our mind. Master or servant, our mind is the ‘manager’ of our life. We feed it with thoughts, feelings, and impressions. Mercury processes them. As a result, we feel in a certain way. We act in a certain way. All our feelings, actions, everything about us can be traced back to the mind. Can be traced back to Mercury.
When we have a Mercury transit, our mind pays attention.
What about Chiron? Chiron is also called “the wounded healer” but Chiron is much more than that. Chiron orbits between Saturn, the last planet visible to the naked eye – and the last planet we can conceptualize with our Mercurial mind – and Uranus.
Uranus is the first invisible planet, an archetype that our mind cannot grasp yet. That’s why Uranus is associated with chaos and surprises – it’s because what we don’t understand, we fear.
Chiron is the ‘missing link’ between Saturn and Uranus and represents our opportunity to transcend our material limitations, to move beyond matter and time, to something greater than our mind can even comprehend.
Of course, the process is not easy. It means awakening from the limited, false reality we are programmed to live in. At first, it hurts. That’s why Chiron is the wounded healer.
But after we embrace the pain, Chiron can open doors to places you can’t even imagine.
Chiron’s symbol is the key, right?
Chiron is nothing else but the key to wholeness.
The North Node represents our purpose in life, our potential to alter our karma (represented by the South Node) and change the course of our destiny.
What happens when these three powerful archetypes – Mercury, Chiron, and the North Node – come together?
Our mind (Mercury)
Our wholeness (Chiron)
Our life’s purpose (North Node).
If there was only one contact – between Chiron and the North Node – we might have missed the incredible opportunity of this transit. But because Mercury (our mind) is involved as well, we simply cannot miss it.
Pay attention to the messages around you – and inside you.
What message is so clear, so true, so important that you cannot ignore it?
You knew it all along, but you didn’t pay enough attention to it.
The portal has been opened. Chiron has given you the key. Step in. Today can be the day that everything changes.
