What Does Chiron Mean in Astrology?
Chiron has been a part of astrology only since 1977. It takes place between Saturn and Uranus. Since this celestial object was discovered relatively recently, its astrological interpretation is still not complete, but its core themes are wounding, pain, injust suffering, healing ability, wisdom earned through misery.
Chiron is named after the centaur of the same name in Greek mythology. Chiron was a wise, well-educated centaur (half-horse, half-human creature) who was a skillful healer and a teacher to many significant figures in Greek mythology, e.g. Achilles or Jason. However, despite his extraordinary medical skills, Chiron was unable to heal himself after he was accidentally shot by an arrow. To get rid of his pain, he decided to trade his immortality for relieving the excruciating pain his wound caused him.
In the chart, Chiron is about your deepest wound. It usually functions as an energy leak and a blockage. Often, the wound was caused by something outside of your control, which makes the pain even worse. Chiron invites you to examine and over time, heal this damage. This asteroid represents the ability to heal others as well.
