Chiron Re-enters Pisces ~ February 8, 2011

Last month, we had a celestially big energy shift with Jupiter's return to Aries. This month, an even bigger shift in energy occurs when Chiron leaves Aquarius for good. He's been transiting Aquarius since 2005 until last year when he made his initial entrance into Pisces on April 19 at 11:37 p.m. PST / April 20, 2010 at 2:37 a.m. EST. Then, while retrograde, he revisited Aquarius on July 20, 2010 and now, Chiron returns to Pisces and settles in until April 2018; and then again, from September 2018 to February 2019. He will not transit Aquarius again until 2056.

As written on the previous Chiron in Pisces post:

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.

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.

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.

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.
