Chiron Direct ~ November 5, 2010

After five months in retrograde motion, Chiron stations to prepare for direct movement on November 5. He'll be revisiting his steps from 26 to 29 degrees of Aquarius for a third and final time until early February 2011. Chiron remains in a very close conjunction with Neptune through his transit in Aquarius, never more than a little over a degree away from each other. This collaboration between Chiron and Neptune promotes healing, release or coming to terms with past hurts, deeply rooted wounds -- may they be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. As mentioned in a previous post, "their alliance is strongest around November to December 2010, where they receive a boost from the Lunar Eclipse at 29 degrees in Gemini on December 21st that trines this Chiron-Neptune conjunction."

Also taken from a previous post:

Chiron represents both what is broken and how to heal it. Unlike a headache where the discomfort can be dispelled by a pill, probing through the darkest recesses of our selves and piercing through our thickest walls to uncover what is at the root is a painstaking process, but well worth the effort.

While in Aquarius (the awakener), we are awakened to what we may have been doing for the sake of life in auto-pilot and making decisions that reflect what's safe or doesn't take much effort or rock the boat. But when looking at the bigger picture, longer term effects are actually more destructive to us. Becoming aware should stir the consciousness to make changes. As we heal the self, we are then able to turn around and help another heal their wounds without sacrificing our own personal growth and needs.

Upon his return to Pisces (the seeker) on February 8, 2011, Chiron's focus shifts to delving deep into our broken spirit (losing the will to live or live a life with purpose), or where we may have lost our faith (in humanity, in our own abilities, etc.), or our belief in that which is greater than the self (God, the Tao, the Divine, etc.). We are given a chance to reconnect our bond with the 'essence' of who we are/of our existence, or if we are already attuned, find where the link may be weak and strengthen those areas.

Chiron stations on November 5 at 11:42 a.m. PST / 2:42 p.m. EST and by November 21, he'll be moving at his regular pace. His complete retrograde cycle began at zero degree of Pisces, retracing his steps to 26 degrees of Aquarius (beginning July 22), and upon direct movement revisits 26 degrees of Aquarius back to zero degree of Pisces (February 8 to 23, 2011).

On the day Chiron changes direction, a New Moon in Scorpio occurs at 9:52 p.m. PST (November 5) / 12:52 a.m. EST (November 6). New Moons signifies renewals. This New Moon phase might also mark a beginnings of sorts for you, as you release the past or realize that your wounds have healed and there's no longer anything holding you back or tying you down.

With Chiron direct, the healing process takes on a new level. Look to the natal house/s that Chiron is transiting to find out how this transit might play out in your life. In addition, those with natal planets or house angles between 25 degrees of Aquarius and zero degree of Pisces may feel the influence of Chiron's transit more strongly than others. And those who are going through their Chiron Return (those with natal Chiron between 26-29 degrees of Aquarius or zero degree of Pisces), I can't stress this enough -- please be extra kind to yourself. Uncovering and tackling decades of buried wounds can be painful, draining, frustrating, but it is a process that frees the soul and opens you up for what can be possible when burden is lifted.

To get an idea of how Chiron's transit may influence you, look to the solar and/or natal house governed by Aquarius and which house/s 26-29 degrees of Aquarius falls in your birth chart.
