Chiron's Transits: An Overview
Chiron, also known as the 'wounded healer', travels through the zodiac once every 50 years. He spends, on average, 4 years in each sign. When he contacts your natal chart it can bring about profound healing and personal change. The transits of Chiron are unique in that they often coincide with periods of emotional pain, healing, and transformation.
Chiron's transits offer opportunities for deep healing and self-discovery. They can bring up old wounds and unresolved issues, forcing us to confront and heal these aspects of ourselves. However, they can also be periods of great insight and personal growth.
Chiron is currently transiting through Pisces in True Sidereal Astrology. Which is helping us all heal wounds hidden deep in our unconscious. Themes around healing our aloneness, willingness to go with the flow in life, and having faith are all collective themes at the moment. Chiron has been here since 2015 and will be until 2028. What parts of our charts he is activating is different for everyone. Although the theme around healing the unconscious is the same for all of us at the moment, it is involving different areas of our lives.
Understanding Chiron's Transits
Each transit of Chiron has a unique energy and influence, depending on the house he is transiting and the specific aspects he is forming. For example, a Chiron transit to Venus may bring up issues related to love and self-worth, while a transit to Mars may trigger issues related to anger and assertiveness.
During a Chiron transit, we may find ourselves confronting old wounds and traumas that we thought we had healed or forgotten. These issues may resurface, forcing us to deal with them in a new and more meaningful way.
However, it's important to remember that Chiron's transits can also bring up our unique gifts. Chiron in mythology was known for his unique healing abilities and the same area that we feel wounded is the very same area we can help others heal. The areas that Chiron affects can bring up innate abilities and strengths previously dormant in our personality.
