Chiron in Aries

Chiron in Pisces has been discovering how we deal with pain and how to endure through times of struggle when solutions arent available. We have been challenged to find healing and transformation through acceptance of experiences that may seem impossible to tolerate, yet to also have faith that a path through darkness can still lead to the light.

With Chiron now in Aries, it will be about taking new steps to deal more directly with those struggles. Some solutions may still be elusive, but now our response should be to act.

Chiron can be associated with "the wound that cannot heal." Indeed, life always contains a component that can't be entirely fixed or dismissed. You can't un-ring the bell. You can't change the past. What's done is done, and sometimes it leaves a scar. These scars become part of us, yet we shouldnt let them dicate how we act moving forward.

The purpose of Chiron in astrology is to help us heal. But while our healing at times feels quite personal as our wounds are a story that we carve out our identity with. Chiron wants us to transcend the personal and into the collective experience. It’s not our pain, it’s the pain of humanity. It’s not our struggles with self worth, it’s compassion for all people who suffer with a lack of self worth. Chiron is like a knot that we have to undo for ourselves so that all humanity can be free from this knot. 

There are ways you can change how you respond to these things. You can change how you express your experience of them, and the priority you give them within the context of your life as a whole. With Chiron in Aries, focuses around our ability to take action, to stand up for ourselves, to bravely move forward. Chiron in Aries invokes the previous times when we were scarred by aggression, violence, or even war. It touches on suppressed anger and frustration as well as defeatism. It’s power struggles in relationships. It’s our physical wounds, our handicaps, the times we’ve felt stuck. Chiron in Aries is the karma of inaction.
