Chiron is considered by many to be an asteroid or small planet that moves between the orbits of Saturn and Uranus. Though only discovered in 1977, Chiron has become a deeply rooted archetype in the collective mind.
Chiron was a centaur, a mythical creature that was a perfect mix of human reason and animal instinct. He was a great healer, but by chance wound he was destined to live with his suffering. Chiron in the astrological table shows where we suffered, but also where we can have a healing and caring influence for others.
If we really understand Chiron's mythology, we also understand that our personal suffering is really essential to our role as a wounded healer. If we heal our wounds, who better to help those who were wounded in the same place?
The first step in undertaking the wounded healer's Chiron journey is to know what sign your Chiron is in. Below I have given the dates and times when Chiron was entered into each Pacific Daylight Time character that most readers will attend.
Example: Chiron had been diagnosed with cancer from August 27th, 37th to November 22nd, July 27th, 1938th to September 29th, 1940 and December 26th, 1940 to June 16th, 1941.)
To find your Chiron interpretation, look for your date of birth in the table below. When you find the sign that your Chiron is in, read the following interpretation. Chiron goes backwards (backwards) and has a very irregular orbit, so it is not in each character for the same time.
