Chiron is often considered an asteroid, but is in fact a combination of a comet and an asteroid. This astronomical body is actually a hybrid, and because of that belongs to a group of astronomical bodies called centaurs, like the ancient Greek mythological creatures which were half human half horses.

Chiron is a small and icy body, and circles around the Sun. This body was the first detected Centaur, and was discovered in 1977.

Chiron got its name from the centaur Chiron, a being from ancient Greek mythology. The centaur Chiron was not like the rest of the centaurs. His father was the Titan god Cronus and his mother was the nymph Phylira. Phylira was seduced by Cronus disguised as a horse, and when she gave birth to Chiron she was so disgusted that she abandoned him.

Chiron was them adopted by the god Apollo.

Apollo and his sister, the goddess Artemis taught Chiron many gifts. Apollo thought him the gifts of healing and medicines. He also thought him the art of prophesy, gymnastics, hunt, and archery; Artemis also though him archery and hunt.

Chiron was very intelligent, kind, and well-mannered, unlike the rest of the centaurs which were a bunch of lustful, wild, and drunken creatures. Centaurs were beings with bodies which were half human half horse. Their head and torso were human and the lower part of the body was a horse.

Chiron on the other hand had human front legs, and only his back legs were horse legs and he was usually depicted as wearing clothes, while other centaurs were always naked; those are other details which differentiate Chiron from the other centaurs, confirming that he is special and better than the rest of them.

The mythical Chiron was an astrologer, an oracle, and he was a teacher, teaching others of his knowledge. He died in strange circumstances unable to use his healing powers to save himself. That is why Chiron, the astrological body is often called the “wounded healer”.

In an astrological sense, Chiron indicates the areas in our lives where we feel wounded and insecure, and we feel the need to overcome these issues and heal.

These areas are often the ones where we experience disappointments and cannot achieve success, although we put in much effort to achieve it. These areas are often the ones who are the most important to us, and yet, we keep failing at achieving satisfaction in relations to them.

Chiron’s wounds date back to our past, usually our childhood, but often our distant past, and our previous lives. We bring the wounds from our past incarnations into this life, to heal them, along with the lesson we need to learn and not repeat the same mistakes again.

For the lesson to be learned we first need to confront our issues and heal. Chiron’s placement in our natal chart indicates the wounds and the potential ways to heal them.

Chiron’s placement in our natal chart indicates the blockages and the weak spots in our character. These are the issues we need to work on confronting and resolving so we can enjoy life and its beauty. Chiron points out the areas where we feel insecure and have the need to prove our worth to ourselves and others.

These areas are usually the ones where we feel as if something is preventing us from being successful, usually our lack of self-esteem and confidence. It seems as though as much as we try to succeed in these areas there’s something preventing us and blocking our progress.

With Chiron we often tend to deny the issues we have and exaggerate in the activities which could prove our worth in these areas or make us successful. This behavior usually has an adverse effect. As much as we try, we keep failing and feel more miserable every time a fall happens.

To deal with these issues, we first need to detect them and realize what they are. We should also try to understand their roots and the cause for having them. That could be the starting point in discovering the solution.

And before being able to find the solution we first need to accept that we have an issue, that we are insecure, lack self-worth and confidence, and that we feel inadequate. When that happens, half of the work is done.

By realizing that we have these issues, we immediately stop trying to prove to ourselves and others that we don’t have them.

Chiron travels through the Zodiac during a period of 49 years. That means that it spends years transiting one sign, thus influencing the generations of people born during that period. These people share the traits of Chiron in that particular sign.

That is why it is important to consider Chiron’s exact placement in the person’s natal chart and the aspects it is making with the planets when determining the influence Chiron has on that person.

Chiron’s placement in the house and sign indicates the areas where we feel insecure and blocked due to reasons we cannot explain. This placement and the inadequacy we feel in these situations makes us confront these issues we have and accept them so that the healing process could begin.

Chiron’s lessons are usually about self-worth, ego, low self-esteem, insecurity, and it is not easy for a person to admit these feelings.

The areas where we usually experience Chiron issues are the ones ruled by the sign and the house Chiron is placed in; these are usually the areas where we feel entirely comfortable giving other people excellent advice to overcome their issues, but at the same time we feel very insecure and doubtful when it comes to our own issues.

These are the areas where we usually feel ashamed, inadequate, worthless, disappointed, or incapable. It is important to acknowledge these feelings exist and start taking actions to deal with them. It is not easy for anyone, but it is well worth the effort.

It’s important to note that Chiron often affects us in a way to make us exaggerate or overcompensate in the areas where we feel we lack something or we feel insecure. In these areas there seems to be no success of our actions and we only experience disappointments although we try harder than in other areas of our life to get what we want.

It’s important to recognize these areas and start working on making changes because we don’t want to waste our time in making the same mistakes and experiencing the same disappointments repeatedly.

They might seek validation from other people but they don’t stop to validate themselves and be satisfied with what they have accomplished. They need to reconnect with themselves and nurture the feeling of self-worth and self-love.

These people tend to consider these happenings as a great injustice, but fail to notice their part in their failure. They usually obsessively try to achieve their goals, and they try very hard, and the harder they try, the farther their achievement is.

When they realize where their faults are, accept them and stop seeking validation and acknowledgement from others, and begin appreciating themselves more, the things they desire the most will come to them. It is that simple.
