After being in Aquarius since 2005, Chiron joins both Jupiter and Uranus and gets his hooves wet in Piscean waters on April 20, 2010 at 2:37 a.m. EDT (April 19 at 11:37 p.m. PDT). He'll retrograde on June 4 then return to Aquarius on July 20, before re-entering Pisces on February 8, 2011 to settle in until April 2018 then again, from September 2018 to February 2019.

In Greek mythology, Chiron was the centaur (half man, half horse) son of Greek god Cronus. He was knowledgeable in the healing arts and mentored Greek heros like Hercules, Jason and Achilles. Unlike most centaurs who are known for their impetuousness and hot-headedness, Chiron was wise and patient. One day, he was accidentally wounded by Hercules, and despite his extensive medical knowledge, he could not heal his own wound. Being immortal, he endured great pain until he exchanged his life to free Prometheus from his suffering and die in his place.

In astrology, Chiron is the wounded healer, representing our wounds -- may they be physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual or otherwise -- and our healing -- may it be through being nursed back to a physically healthy state, releasing painful memories, letting go of negativity or restoring our faith. For 5 years, Chiron's transit in Aquarius focused on "healing" social structures through individual humanitarian efforts coming together to make an impact despite the differences in our races, cultures, belief systems, etc.

Aquarius governs innovation so it's not surprising technology was involved in carrying out Chiron's goals. On the internet alone, long established charitable organizations (i.e., along with newly formed agencies (i.e., created means for donating, participating and making a difference as easy as clicking keys on a computer. Now, mobile phone apps are coming out so cell phone subscribers can also participate easily, sometimes at no cost to the user (i.e.

In Pisces, Chiron's focus goes beyond social structures. There are no boundaries with Pisces. Pisces governs the realm of the unseen -- mysticism, spirituality, the psyche, dreams, psychic abilities, compassion, sacrificial love, collective consciousness, interconnectedness, escapism, abuse, phobias, mental problems and hospitals/mental institutions.

Chiron's transit in Pisces may result in an even greater need to be part of the whole; more people may see the benefit of cultivating their spiritual self (not necessarily religious); those addicted to alcohol or other substances may finally be able to kick the habit by being able to confront their own demons; those who were abused in any way as children or adults may finally be able to come to terms with their reality and release the grip the abuse may have had all these years; alternative forms of healing may become even more popular as these methods become more credible and mainstream; and/or people may become more motivated to spread kindness, be charitable and helpful to others. These are some of what we might encounter in the next nine years. Discovering or unearthing what's been hidden or untapped through seeking deeply within to find the much needed release/healing. Anything goes. There are no boundaries with Pisces, which is part of the wounding for someone who may have their natal Chiron in Pisces -- the inability to distinguish the self from others/the group make it difficult to know when to say 'no'.

Those born between 1960 and 1969 (March-August 1960; January 1961-April 1968; October 1968-January 1969) may be going through your Chiron Return between 2010 and 2019. Chiron Return represents healing deeply rooted wounds that only you can heal for yourself -- no medicine, physician or any other kind of healer can do it for you. It is through rehashing old memories, remembering/re-experiencing the pain, and finally making peace with them that release and healing may be achieved. Though the process itself is painful and taxing, you deal with it in your own pace and in your own way. It's important to remember to be kind to yourself during this process. What has hardened/frozen over the years softens during this return, as you come to terms with what was, what couldn't be, what hurt. Will you be going through your Chiron Return?

The last time Chiron transit Pisces was approximately 1960 to 1969. Distinguished astrologer, Eric Francis, wrote an article on Chiron in Pisces in the sixties which might be of interest.

Regardless of where your natal Chiron placement is or what your Sun sign may be, this Chiron transit in Pisces may have a subtle impact that only upon reflection later can the full influence be gauged. Early born mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, especially Pisces) and water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) may feel this transit's influence stronger earlier on. To find out how his transit might influence you, look to the Pisces-ruled house/s in your birth chart or request a quote for a customized reading. As with any transit, the key is to work with the energy no matter the difficulty or what painful truths are unmasked and be compassionate to yourself as you go through the process of healing. And when the time comes, be ready and willing to accept the pain that comes with the loss of the past.
