CHIRON FIRES HIS ARROWS
TO HEAL YOUR WOUNDED HEART
TO HEAL YOUR WOUNDED HEART
HEALING energies get a sudden and dramatic boost in mid-August when Chiron the Healer comes galloping to the rescue to form a beneficent trine with Jupiter and Saturn ... three heavenly bodies which are so slow-moving that this positive aspect is rare indeed.
Mid-August is also the peak of the PERSEID METEOR SHOWER ... and when you look up into the nighttime sky it is almost as though Chiron the archer is firing flaming arrows at you directly.
This obscure asteroid plays only a peripheral role in most daily astrology forecasts. But this strong aspect to lucky Jupiter and determined Saturn means that Chiron becomes a major player this year.
In Greek mythology, Chiron was one of the Titans, the greatest of the Centaurs. Chiron was the tutor to a great many gods and demigods, including Prometheus, Theseus, Achilles and Hercules, to name but a few.
Astrologically, Chiron represents a person's healing energies and, indeed, the word for "surgery" in many European languages (chirurgie in French and German, cirugya in Spanish, chirugia in Italian and Portuguese) comes directly from the Ancient Greek words for "Chiron Hands" — a healer with the skilled hands of the Titan Chiron. The "special gifts" of the coming months involve psychic healing.
You may have been feeling that you are trapped in feelings of guilt, remorse or pain. You feel like the scapegoat or even the victim of change and circumstances beyond your control.
You feel like you're in some horrific Harry Potter scenario and are all alone in a dark and spooky forest. This is when Chiron the Centaur gallops to your rescue and carries you to safety.
Chiron shows you why all of this has happened, and Chiron offers you options for moving forward — out of the darkness.
Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter are so slow-moving that these powerful energies will last for weeks and will be reinforced once more when the trine reaches its climax on August 21st.
The power of this Grand Trine is upped when Pluto the transformer joins in the fun, peaking on August 26th.
On a personal level, you can expect a positive and expansive outlook which can benefit your well-being at this time. You may be more open-minded with regard to experiencing new things, which will allow healing of your mind, body, and spirit.
For instance, you could seek higher understanding and meaning in your life through a guide, mentor, or spiritual person or increase your inner knowledge by means of educational processes, religion, or meditative practices during this period.
An urge to travel to far-away places (real or imaginary) may also be experienced. You may discover new perspectives on your beliefs, faith, and sense of hope.
Restoring peace and harmony in your personal life and relationships is possible now through your interest in healing your own wounds, as well as extending compassion and generosity to others.
