Chiron In Aries – You Are Here For A Reason

On February 18, 2019, Chiron enters Aries to stay here until 2027.

This is one of the most important transits of the year. Although Chiron is not literally a planet, any person who has studied Chiron and has experienced Chiron transits knows that Chiron transits are VERY intense and life-changing.

Why is that?

Chiron – The Key to the Zodiac

Chiron is classified as both a minor planet and a comet and it’s primarily connected to the archetype of the Wounded Healer.

Chiron’s glyph is literally a key, and if we study Chiron’s orbit and Chiron’s mythology we soon understand why Chiron is truly the key to the zodiac.

Chiron – The Bridge Between

Chiron has an irregular orbit and spends more time in some signs than in others. Chiron can transit a sign from anywhere between 1,5 years to 9 years. Chiron spends the most time in Pisces and Aries (8 to 9 years).

This is interesting because Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, and Aries the first sign of the zodiac.

Connecting the end of everything (Pisces) to the beginning of all possibilities (Aries) is not an easy task, but if there is someone that can embark on this journey, that is Chiron.

Chiron orbits between Saturn (the last visible planet) and Uranus (the first transpersonal planet). By orbiting between Saturn and Uranus, Chiron links our personal experience to the collective experience.

Last but not least, the duality is also linked to mythology. Chiron was a Centaurus – half God, half horse, signifying the animal and the God coming together in one entity.

Ultimately, Chiron’s role is to break, but also to put back together different forms of existence.

Chiron is the alchemist of the zodiac. Chiron breaks everything only to find a higher, a superior order.

Chiron In Aries – The Identity Wound

Chiron in Aries is where you feel you don’t have the right to be yourself. Aries is concerned exactly with the affirmation of the self but Chiron will challenge this affirmation of the self, with the purpose of finding a higher order.

Aries is the 1st sign of the zodiac – is all about the individual, about impulse, passion, instinct, “Me first” attitude.

Aries in where we assert ourselves, where we go for what we want, where we draw borders to express our uniqueness.

Aries is the very first sprout to emerge from the soil in the spring, choosing life, choosing to ‘get out there’ into the world and express itself.

Chiron is where we feel wounded, ashamed, broken and inadequate.

Chiron will challenge Aries’ expression of the self, expression of individuality.

Chiron in Aries is about the greatest wounds of all – the wound of identity.

The wound of identity is when we feel we don’t have the right to exist. This is the most painful wounds of all because it is the most difficult to grasp.

We Are Born With It

We are all born with the wound of identity. When we are babies, we hardly have an identity. We are the result of the genetic makeup of our parents.

As we grow up, if our self-expression is encouraged, we slowly develop our unique identity.

But the process is not always smooth. Our parents may – rightly so – see us as an extension of themselves, and may have difficulties in acknowledging that we are a different human being. It’s not their fault! They do this because they want to protect us.

But trying to force the child to become anything else but what they were born to be, is incredibly damaging to the sense of the child’s self. Stifling a child’s individuality is more dangerous on long-term than neglect and even violence.

People who have the most challenging forms of psychosis usually come from upbringings where they were not allowed to be themselves, to express their unique identity.

Symptoms of the identity wound

  • “I am nobody” – an overall feeling of emptiness and disconnection
  • “I am not enough” – a desire to “prove” oneself
  • “If I don’t fit in, I don’t exist” – a desire to be liked by everyone
  • A tendency to copy other people, but at the same time a lack of defining role models
  • A desire to remain unnoticed, a fear of expressing one’s opinions and beliefs
  • Difficulty to connect with one’s body or feelings
  • …or on the contrary, a continuous to prove one’s uniqueness by behaving oddly
  • A tendency to hurt oneself, physically or psychologically – self-inflicted wounds, abuse of drugs, alcohol and medication, overworking, feeling ‘numb’

How to Overcome the Wound of Identity with Chiron in Aries

What can you do about your feelings of worthlessness? Can you heal your wound of identity?

No achievement, no money or success can heal this wound – because being you is not about becoming something you are not, but is about learning to accept that it is OK to be you!

Chiron in Aries will ask you to address and heal – once and for all – the wound of identity, a wound that we are all born with.

Chiron in Aries is about taking responsibility for your existence, is about being present with your wounds, with your pain and with your shame.

Show yourself despite the pain. You are going to feel it, no doubt. But no matter what, you need to show up, do what you need to do, take a step forward, to BE YOU.

You are Here for a Reason

Your existence is the very proof you deserve to BE. There is a reason why out of billions of genetic possibilities, it was YOU who made it.

Yes, not only you have the right to exist, but you are here for a reason. You were born with a unique mission.

You were born to express the divine in your unique way, to develop and share your unique gifts, talents, and skills. You are much more than you think. The stars, the whole universe collided so you could be here today.

When you allow your true self to shine through, there is no more pain, there is no more wound. You achieve self-realization.

Self-realization happens when all the broken parts of you come together to form a whole.

But you need to put ALL these parts together. Yes, even those you are ashamed of. They are part of you too, they are part of your story.

By allowing them to exist, you allow yourself to exist. And this is how you find the key, the higher order, the higher meaning of your existence.

  1. Chiron has gone back and forth over my natal north node at 26 degrees in Pisces, 12th house. Now, finally moving over and into its natal sign of Aries, also 12th house, yet intercepted. The sign of a secret prison of sorts. Where the Moon is conjunct, along with Eris, and Sedna. I’ve been awakened to my deep rooted pain. Its transit over my life purpose in Pisces has been strikingly painful. Could be referred to as a “dark night of the soul” … I wonder if this transit represents the “darkest” since it will return within this intercepted sign. I’m scared. I’m awake. But I’m afraid of the dark. It’s when I’m the most aware of other dimensions. Has always been that way. It’s like I am a bridge to this world. Entities seek me to reach this world. Why does this scare me? I’ve heard others refer to this as a gift. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do as I approach this return. As a young child, this experience terrified me. Maybe Im ready for the darkest night to transform me into the bridge I was meant to be? Maybe? I can help people by accepting these entities in and not hiding from them and shivering under my blanket at night? Hearing their message? Hearing their plea? I’ve asked them to leave me alone. I’ve put a barrier in between this world and mine. I know I am here to help humanity. Maybe chiron return to this very scary room inside of my house is the key to my destiny?

    1. Hi Lori, seems like we share a similar position. My dreams used to scare me as well, frequent night time visits… until fairly recent. It’s not a gift, it’s a curse. We can help some entities, most are just draining energy. I have Aries intercepted in 12th also. Neptune in Pisces seems to expand the situation. I struggle with the depth of that darkness as well, though grounding and barefoot dancing does make it lighter, somehow. As if we are catalysts for all that is hidden to come out in the open. Child trafficking anyone? Are we cleaning that stuff out?

    2. Hi lori…im on my inner path journey also…at times i find myself in the dark and feel frightened…what i have just learned is that im standing in the pathway with my eyes closed then…when i open my eyes i can see that im on path…surrounding ourselves with love and the white light allows us to experience our fear inside love…this removes any power that we have allowed fear to have over us…and allows us perspective…blessings and love from me to you hon…be strong…be proud…you win…yay…xc

  2. I’m curious about your Chiron course. Will it include exploration of aspects to Chiron in addition to natal placement?
