Despite being a minor planet, Chiron significantly influences our natal charts and disregarding it could cause damage to our potential, healing, and long-term happiness.
This placement is known as the Wounded healer and speaks about the pain or wound we might need years or a lifetime to heal.
However, the hurt Chiron represents isn’t forever if we embrace it and understand how to address it.
Thus, pain can help us address past traumas and assess how to prevent them from controlling our lives.
The Meaning of Chiron
Chiron is an asteroid that Charles T. Kowal discovered in 1977.
This planetoid orbits between the Kuiper belt and the asteroid belt, and many consider it a metaphysical mediator due to occupying space between Saturn and Uranus.
Hence, it reminds us that we often must reconcile extremes to reach the middle ground.
Moreover, it suggests we must embrace our pain and turn it into power to achieve genuine happiness.
In astrology, Chiron represents traumas and old wounds we must address and overcome to prevent suppressed pain from holding us back.
Even though Chiron never managed to heal himself in mythology, we can control our hurt and learn how to use it as a weapon.
Chiron in Pisces: Meanings and traits
This part will dive deeper into the effects of Chiron transiting through the Zodiac sign of Pisces.
It will delve into the characteristics and traits of this placement and how it affects its natives’ relationships, behaviors, traumas, and aspirations.
But first, let’s clarify what people have Chiron in Pisces. Those born between March 1960 and August 1960, January 1961 and April 1968, April 2010 and July 2010, and February 2011 and April 2018.
Chiron was last in Pisces between September 25, 2018, and February 18, 2019.
However, a long time will pass before Chiron enters this Zodiac sign again (not before the 2050s).
So far, the article has focused on Chiron’s historical background, mythology, and general traits.
But now it’s time to assess what it means when Chiron finds itself in Pisces, how that impacts its natives, and how they can leverage this placement to turn their pain into one of their greatest strengths.
However, before diving into the characteristics of Chiron in Pisces, it’s necessary to determine what makes this Zodiac sign unique.
Because of that, we’ll first assess the most common Pisces traits and how they align with this placement.
Pisces – Dreamy, Sensitive, and Nostalgic
Pisces is a mutable water sign, the last sign in the Zodiac, and it has the most enigmatic characteristics.
It is the one that has experienced every energy and every process experienced in the zodiacal wheel and is, in a certain way, a summary of all this energetic journey.
Pisces is a romantic Zodiac sign that speaks about union, cultivating awareness, and breaking down the mental barriers that tell us that humans are separate beings.
Knowing each process and element that the wheel conceived, Pisces knows that everything is one and that the same impulse that arose in Aries merges with every other Zodiac sign.
People born with their Sun sign in Pisces are empathetic, mysterious, and artistic.
They are among the most sensitive signs and often struggle with anxiety, unaddressed traumas, and nightmares.
However, these natives dislike talking about their fears and challenges.
Instead of opening up to someone and admitting they’re in pain, they turn their hurt into art.
Thanks to that, these natives are capable of creating the most perplexing and astonishing paintings, lyrics, and stories.
They love sharing their thoughts and emotions through creative content.
That way, these individuals can reveal their pain to the world without discussing it or talking about details. They rarely let someone into their inner worlds.
These natives are typically introverted, composed, and secretive. They enjoy listening to others and helping them solve their problems.
However, it’s a different story when Pisces individuals should address their own issues.
Since they have trouble being vulnerable and confiding in others, they often silently live through others.
Moreover, these natives might even act as emotional sponges, soaking in other people’s emotions, actions, and thoughts. That isn’t to say they are copycats or something is wrong with them.
Pisces individuals prefer to adapt their personalities and life stories to other people’s preferences.
They want others to like them and accept them, but they’re also terrified of baring their souls naked.
Some might say Pisces natives act hypocritical or have no identity.
But they can mold their personality traits and expose only certain parts of themselves to ensure no one comes too close to hurting them.
These natives feel an unyielding urge to protect themselves, as they know the world can be scary.
Despite that, they love all humans equally and wish they could save us from ourselves.
These individuals see all flaws of mankind, but they also believe there’s hope and that humanity can be saved.
They are pure and fragile souls that dream about a kinder and more humanitarian world.
Even if no one has ever hurt these individuals, they still have trust issues and fear someone might be out to get them.
That’s why they often hide in their hobbies, homes, and nature.
These natives want to be a part of a community but also want to run away and forget how cruel people can be.
But that’s also why they strive to protect others, even from themselves.
These individuals wish they could help everyone be the best version of themselves and find lasting happiness.
As a result, they believe humans would be much happier if we prioritized empathy, unconditional love, and forgiveness.
These natives are compassionate and believe everyone deserves forgiveness.
But they aren’t always satisfied with how they are and wish they were tougher and less forgiving.
Deep down, these individuals know people often take advantage of them due to their naivety.
They hope to see a day when humanity will reach greater heights and become more just, tolerant, and loving.
Therefore, it is a sign that speaks of universal love, regardless of race or gender.
As we have explored before, Chiron speaks to us of a wound that does not and will not heal.
Let’s see how this relates to the sign of Pisces and how those born under this placement experience it.
However, it’s also necessary to remember that having Chiron in Pisces parallels having it in the 12th House, the House that rules Pisces.
The 12th House tells us about the unconscious, suppressed fears, and everything that we know exists (or even what we don’t know) yet remains hidden and unknown.
Chiron, positioned in the sign of Pisces, tells us about a wound in the soul, which reflects the Piscean energy itself, of feeling things beyond physical limits, connected not only to the material realm that we experience but to everything that goes beyond.
Something similar to Aquarius happens in Pisces. These last two signs of the Zodiac no longer speak to us of an individual, but of the entire community, of humanity in general.
A person with Chiron in Pisces feels deeply attached to this network that we make up as humanity and perceives themselves as an essential part of this larger group.
Nevertheless, it’s critical to also remember the other side of Chiron’s teachings.
That side tells us that it is a wound that does not heal but that, thanks to its experience, it has the power to heal others and share its sense of service by wanting to understand everyone.
Moreover, Chiron’s placement aims to heal that area where people have difficulties.
In this sense, the quality that Chiron, the wounded healer, acquires in Pisces is that of healing mastery.
Pisces is a sign that stands out for its empathy, and what is more empathetic than seeking to heal someone else with our own experience, from love and sincerity?
As a result, they can put themselves in the role of “saviors,” perhaps taking charge of situations that do not concern them and going to extremes to support and help others.
In this context of unity that Pisces perceives among all living beings, there is a lack of limits (where do I start and you end); therefore, if you are in a challenging situation, Pisces will be the first to come to help.
And here, Chiron’s immense power, when positioned in this sign, is very clear since it has developed wisdom based on empathy, service, and love.
Chiron can sacrifice its own desires to help someone else, as it has felt a lot of pain and is willing to suffer for others.
Women with Chiron in Pisces
Women are lunar and water beings, highly connected to the feminine cycle and intuition.
Pisces is also profoundly linked to intuition, to that sixth sense that goes against all reason.
As a result, this placement implies issues with gut instincts, the women’s impressive nature-given advantage.
Some women don’t listen to their inner voices and struggle with allowing themselves to start a spiritual path (the spiritual path is also a highly Piscean archetype) precisely because they silence their own wishes to address those of others.
That’s among the most troubling aspects of being a woman with Chiron in Pisces. They often put themselves second due to hoping to appease people around them, including their children, partners, or even work.
Nevertheless, they have an incredible power to make others feel appreciated and be aware of this power.
These women often have low confidence and believe their needs are not as crucial as making others happy.
Their loved ones and friends are always their priority, and they feel selfish when expressing their desires or hopes.
Moreover, these women often disregard their intuition and hunches, doubting their abilities and relevance. They enjoy getting compliments and hearing they’re right.
But these women rarely ask for feedback or encourage others to praise them.
They dislike being in the spotlight and would rather ignore their need to be seen and acknowledged than demand what they deserve.
Other people perceive these women as low maintenance and appreciate their willingness to sacrifice for others.
However, these same people also fail to notice how that hurts women with Chiron in Pisces and holds them back from getting love and recognition.
These women never raise their voices and prefer being on the sidelines, invisible and silent.
They wish someone would see their worth without them having to point it out.
Because of that, these women struggle with relationships and rarely get their needs met.
They might even settle for cruel or unloving partners who tend to use their kindness.
Things are not much better in the professional aspect. These women are often satisfied with lower positions than they worked for because they fear someone else deserves it more.
As a result, they might become resentful, insecure, and lonely.
Although these women believe sacrificing and being happy with little is the only righteous thing, they must learn to love themselves more.
Chiron in Pisces should guide them to become louder in expressing their needs, opinions, and desires.
These women must accept they can love others and make them happy without lowering their expectations and embracing self-imposed misery.
Women with this placement should be able to take time for themselves and learn to prioritize self-love.
They should acknowledge the importance of connecting deeply with their desires, intuition, and spiritual path.
These women must put themselves first, or they’ll never feel lasting happiness.
That’s why they must accept their loved ones should want them to be happy and confident.
Otherwise, these women risk cultivating mediocre relationships and never being faithful to their needs.
Men with Chiron in Pisces
In men, the Chiron wound is more associated with sensitivity.
Another significant Pisces trait is extreme sensitivity because these natives perceive themselves as part of the whole and feel everything intensely.
Men often disregard their feelings and emotions, believing expressing and addressing them makes them vulnerable and weak.
Thus, Pisces often encourages men to connect more deeply with their feminine and intuitive side.
Chiron in this placement represents a deep wound, touched by so many years of this repressing.
But it is a fantastic tool and opportunity for all Chiron Pisces men to heal that part.
Men with Chiron in Pisces may feel lost when searching for their purpose in life.
There may be existential crises linked to the disconnection of not allowing themselves to feel their emotions and feelings intensely.
But the power of men with Chiron in Pisces lies in accepting the emotions, needs, and sensibilities that link them to their feminine side.
These men must embrace that listening to their intuition or having a well-developed sixth sense isn’t bizarre or odd.
Instead, it helps them avoid potentially harmful situations and people.
However, these men should accept their feelings and acknowledge them as much as they appreciate their logic.
The task for these men is to listen carefully to their inner beings and address their needs and emotions.
Moreover, they must avoid silencing their sensitive part and denying their feelings.
Men with Chiron in Pisces can be compassionate and intuitive, but that doesn’t make them weak or naive.
However, they should also learn not to let their emotions get the best of them and control their lives.
The essential aspect when talking about Chiron is to remember this is the archetype of the “wounded healer.”
Chiron represents the one who has suffered and experienced immense pain and suffering.
But despite that, Chiron can turn their hurt and wounds into a source of power.
Our traumas might feel damaging, but they can help us find a way and become more potent versions of ourselves.
Everyone carries an inner power to be more resilient and turn challenging situations and experiences into life lessons and transformative energy.
That can help us genuinely accept our internal pain and turn it into light and kindness that helps others and ourselves.
Moreover, Chiron reminds us that we must love and forgive ourselves just as readily as we love and forgive others.
Although the archetype of Chiron suggests a pain “that will never heal,” astrology can help us channel it, use it as a transformative tool, and become more resilient.
Chiron can also help us address old traumas and understand how they hold us back.
These actions and truths are necessary for genuinely loving ourselves and others.
Therefore, ignoring our wounds and needs can damage our ability to be happy and reach our full potential.
