Chiron in Aries April 18th - September 26th 2018: Identity crisis? Fear not it's a taste of the alchemy to come...
Hello lovely ones and happy Monday (or, depending on where you live perhaps happy Tuesday by the time you read this!).
Last week, the day after Saturn turned retrograde, Chiron moved out of Pisces after an eight year stay (he entered Pisces in April 2010) and into Aries.
This is part of his almost nine year transit of the Aries ruled part of the zodiac and therefore our charts but due to his annual retrograde motion he will also dip back into Pisces in September and only return to Aries next February 9 2019.
Chiron as I am sure you know by now, is the wounded healer.
The mighty centaur who suffered with terrible wounds but managed to heal others and was a wise counsel to many.
It was because of his wounds and the suffering that Chiron experienced that he was able to acquire the wisdom which allowed him to help others.
In may ways the poison of his wound, contained the cure, for others and for himself, as it helped him to manage his suffering by being of service to others.
Soulstrology tells us that Chiron transits will bring up wounds for us in the life areas which he is transiting.
These are wounds which need to be brought to the light so that we can alchemize them and ultimately so that we can acquire great wisdom through that process and can indeed become victors of those wounds rather than victims.
Soulstrology tells us that this year during Chiron's initial transit of Aries we may experience some wounds in the life areas which Aries rules in our charts.
They may be fresh wounds, or old wounds which are brought to the surface.
We need to pay close attention to what happens over the next six months and the specific wounds which we incur, or which are re-opened, as this will tell us what much of the work we will need to do over the Chiron in Aries transit is and how we can use cosmic consciousness to work with the energies and turn that wound into wisdom more quickly so that we can be victors rather than victims...
Remember that Aries in the natural zodiac rules the self.
Our identity, autonomy and appearance, our personal goals and how we go about pursuing and ultimately manifesting what we desire.
To some degree we may experience an identity crisis of sorts in the life areas which Chiron is transiting because the Aries influence there will place the focus on OURSELVES and how we operate in those specific areas of life.
For example if Chiron in Aries is transiting our second house (of our personal finances, income, possessions, values, self-esteem) we may go through an identity crisis regarding our possessions, what we do to make a living, what we value and our self-esteem.
If Chiron is transiting our seventh house (of partnerships of all kinds, platonic, romantic, professsional) then we may experience an identity crisis within these partnerships raising us to ask who am I within this interpersonal relationship and as a result potentially leading to disconnections if your higher self is not truly aligned with those beings etc - side note - I went through this when Chiron was in Pisces transiting my natal seventh but the transformation and process of alchemy resulted in my marriage and new career!).
You are hopefully getting the picture of how this Chiron transit may play out and can use the Soulstrology zodiac guide below to check where this is playing out in your unique chart.
Please do not be fearful as unlike the Chiron in Pisces transit which had many harsh aspects, this Chiron in Aries transit is actually largely unaspected and the major aspects it does make are very fortunate so Soulstrology tells us this could be a revolution of self that leads to an evolution of self in the areas of life which Aries rules in our charts!
Nonetheless, with a Full Moon around the corner (this Sunday PT) and the double whammy intensity of Saturn and now Pluto (blog coming on this soon!) going retrograde it is safe to say that each of us may feel some intensity coming up this week which may be related to the new Chiron in Aries transit.
More on this soon but for now please check the Soulstrology zodiac guide to see where this Chiron in Aries transit is playing out in your chart.
Please read for your sun sign and your rising sign.
