People can easily find out what it is they need in life to feel whole by simply looking at what kind of advice and lessons they preach to others. Psychologically, we often give what we need the most and that includes the healing wisdom of certain wounds that we only know how to heal because we deal with them ourselves.
Chiron in Astrology symbolizes this given because as the wounded healer it represents that part in our charts where we struggle to feel whole and healed. Yet the lessons and wisdom that belong to the sign and house Chiron is in are often the bits of knowledge that we hold dear to our hearts and passionately share with those who need it.
This challenging part of the chart is different from that of Saturn’s position because Chiron teaches not the lesson to be more self-responsible and transcend your pains, but instead humbles you from realizing that it is okay to have a vulnerable spot that you can’t help yourself with. Especially when it seems you are a master of the healing wisdom when it comes to supporting others with that same pain.
In his Divine nature, Chiron should be perfect and able to apply his power to others on himself as well. Yet his human part keeps him wounded, making him humble to realize that every human struggles with something they can’t heal from. Yet this collectively shared given unties everyone in the understanding that you can not judge another person for their hurts. And even if you can’t heal yourself with your own advice does not mean that advice applies to others.
Chiron, therefore, rules compassion and brings self-honesty to people so they become more transparent about their wounds and what they need to feel whole again. It is a great way for people to establish boundaries, express their needs, and get off a high horse by daring to ask for help and acknowledging they too have a weak spot. This not only humbles a person but also allows them to receive support and help from others with those pains. It is a sensitive part of the chart, causing people to find wisdom and unique views in the areas of their wounds while also being more vulnerable, thus relatable, about those imperfections.
The wound to carry in Aquarius
In the sign of Aquarius, Chiron deals with wounds related to liberation, unity, humanitarianism, and everything related to being part of, or creating, a community.
Aquarius is an independent and eccentric archetype, ruled by its own sovereign mind and creatively innovative thinking. These people, as preachers of the Aquarian energy, are likely very motivated to believe in the power of a group and uniting as people. They champion individuality as well as being honorable to those daring enough to walk a genuine path.
The wound related to this, as Chiron is the wounded healer, often appears as a feeling of disconnection from the self or being self-conscious in a group setting. Perhaps these people feel like they don’t belong and struggle to find friends that make them feel differently.
For those with Chiron here, the wound to carry may be a difficulty connecting with the authentic self and feeling appreciated by those around them. Perhaps they have experienced pain within being part of a group or having issues with making friends despite being community-minded and wanting to create a network of like-minded people.
Themes such as revelation and awakening touch a sensitive part of them, especially because these people likely preach to others to walk their authentic path fully and wake up to their unique selves.
Aquarius as the eccentric marks the outsider, especially when the otherness is used to justify emotional detachment and self-isolation. Perhaps their strangeness makes them feel vulnerable, even though they appreciate and encourage others to be unique and not blindly follow the crowd.
This Chiron-related wound is often provoked in any social or dynamic group setting, which is why these people have the purpose and potential to improve those settings in their lives. In these scenes, they find their wisdom because the gift of understanding is found there where the insecurity lies.
Your key resolution
Finding empowerment by accepting our imperfections is the essential first step in learning to trust oneself. Especially when one can find beauty in their fragile parts, something happens to the level of confidence that humbles and yet strengthens a person greatly.
The lesson from Chiron is not by learning from mistakes, like with Saturn, the planet of Karma. Instead, Chiron is a point of vulnerability we need to accept in order to heal our deepest wounds by opening them up. Exposing such wounds in the subconscious can make one compassionate towards others who may struggle with their own pains. And on top of that, it teaches a person to embrace imperfections with an open heart, which builds character.
The fragility of the Chiron position in Aquarius comes from a fear of accepting the uniqueness of the personal design of an individual. To feel empowered by this instead of being defensive towards it, can really mark these people out as pioneers and revolutionaries of a new age where the mainstream is no longer the aim.
If you have Chiron in Aquarius, it is recommended to spend time with people and in relationships or careers that involve being open to new ideas. Perhaps some idealism and humanitarian causes can inspire you. Or being free to explore the possibilities of the future and creating such a vision with like-minded people can close the gap of feeling detached from yourself and the unique views you may hold.
Find your wholeness by embracing the objective, original, eccentric, broadminded, rebellious, and humanitarian traits of your design. The more effort you put in surrounding yourself with an open-minded and creative environment, the easier it will become to reconnect with the parts in yourself that you may have felt detached from!
