Ever feel lost, trapped, and aimless? As if no matter what you do, you have no control over your life.
There’s something inside of you that feels broken and irreparable.
That deep and invisible wound hurts when you breathe, and no medicines can cure it.
The pain is usually associated with a particular area of your life, and you struggle to navigate it.
Perhaps you dream of being an athlete, but you never reach the place you want regardless of how hard you try and exercise.
There’s that sinister darkness that trips you on every step and pushes you back.
It is what causes you to start doubting yourself and your capacities. What if, after all, you are not as good as you thought, and you’ll never achieve the desired results?
Those thoughts plague you and hold you in its clutches, stopping you from realizing your potential.
Then you hit a wall, feeling that all you do is trying the same formula and not getting what will make you feel proud, happy, and fulfilled.
The problem is, you might even try different ways, but it always backfires, and you are back in that dark place again.
Perhaps you are not confronting your primal fears, a childhood trauma, or repressed memories. You can feel them trying to reach the surface, but you suppress them or lose yourself in unhealthy defense mechanisms.
Hence, you never face your wounds, and if you do so, you can’t know what you need to heal them.
It is why there’s a recurring pattern of troubles or aches in your life, and it reappears in different ways. They are warning you that you can’t escape what’s within you.
These intense wounds are a wake-up call that you have to dig and uncover what caused them and what they are trying to teach you.
Indeed, the pain you’re trying to hide is a lesson you are supposed to learn.
Chiron: History and origins
The repressed wounds you don’t let emerge come from Chiron, an asteroid discovered in 1977.
The American astronomer Charles Kowal discovered Chiron, but there were others before him who predicted his discovery.
One of the most prominent predictors was the Scottish astrologer Maurice Wemyss. She predicted in 1935 that the world would find a celestial body with an affinity for Sagittarius, and characteristics of that envisioned planetoid resemble Chiron.
The original name of Chiron was Object Kowal. The symbol for Chiron consists of an O and a K, and it looks like a key. Many astrologers associate with the ability of Chiron to unlock our primal, past-life, or karmic wounds.
Due to its position between Saturn and Uranus, astrologers also call Chiron the Rainbow Bridge. Chiron has an erratic and eccentric orbit and a slow pace of transit.
Hence, it takes him around 49 years to circle through all Zodiac signs. It stays between four and nine years in each, and people usually feel his intense effect in their fifties.
The name of Chiron originates from Greek mythology. You should know the myth to comprehend the meaning of this placement.
Chiron was an immortal centaur, and his father was the god of time, Cronus.
But Chiron was unlike other overly indulgent and uncultured centaurs. Instead, he was wise, educated, and a mentor of many mythical Greek heroes, such as Hercules.
Even though Chiron had a difficult life since being a baby because his parents abandoned him, he wasn’t bitter.
Yet, the universe kept being unfair, and during a misunderstanding between Hercules and centaurs, a poisoned arrow struck his leg. As he was immortal, Chiron was facing eternal agony.
Hercules felt guilty and asked the gods to have compassion for Chiron. It is why they decided to offer him to switch his fate with the one of Prometheus, which Chiron accepted.
His life and death remind us that some wounds reemerge throughout our life and that we often don’t have control over them.
Chiron’s wounds teach us how to overcome our own and becoming the healers
Chiron points to our wounds, but it is our task to uncover what caused them and how to overcome them healthily.
Sometimes these wounds are a consequence of a childhood or adolescence trauma, loss, or pain.
But they can also follow us from another life because they were too intense. Or, perhaps, we didn’t learn our lesson.
We can use what Chiron is showing us to discover how to recognize and mend our wounds.
The goal is to heal ourselves and become healers instead of being victims or inflict pain on other people.
