People often preach the lessons in life that relate to the position of Chiron in their chart. Wherever He is, the sign and house’s value determine what those lessons are.
It is very common that what we teach most people struggle to absorb themselves. Most people likely know the situation of being able to give advice, yet not following up on it yourself. Chiron as the wounded healer plays a big role in this phenomenon.
The purpose of Chiron in the chart is to bring honesty and self-awareness to the parts of ourselves that we are vulnerable and sensitive about. Being more transparent and understanding our insecurities can heal wounds because it brings compassion. Nobody is perfect, and everyone struggles with something. So to have a wound you can’t heal from humbles you to have the realization that just like yourself, everyone struggles at times. This unites everyone into knowing that we need each other for support and help.
What wounds we can accept in ourselves, we learn to heal in others and can help the world get rid of the pains we each know. Challenges related to Chiron are very different from those of Saturn. With Saturn, the lessons can be sore and cause defensive reactions in those who are confronted with their own lessons. With Chiron, the teaching is more loving and sensitive. It is there not to discipline us, but rather to find wisdom in places where one can feel shy, shameful, or guilty. This humbles the ego and strengthens one’s ability to be non-judgmental toward others.
The wound to carry in Gemini
Those with Chiron in Gemini might preach the concept of ‘mind over matter’ and its power to utilize the mind by expressing words that speak the individual’s sovereign truth only.
Yet that is what they might struggle with themselves. The balance of righteous speech and finding focus can be tricky for these people to attain. Having a scattered mind or feeling unbalanced in self-expression are indicators that these people may need to learn from their Chiron position.
Whether they talk too much or too little, swinging between those extremes can make it difficult to express oneself eloquently. Yet these people tend to encourage others with their truth, are good listeners, and support others to speak their minds truthfully.
Giving advice and providing information comes easy for those with Chiron in Gemini. They are skilled advisors and offer their help genuinely. As a natural communicator toward others, Chiron struggles to express himself in Gemini. Learning and mental stimulation are also themes that ping in the lives of those with this placement.
Your key resolution
Learning to trust oneself starts with finding beauty and acceptance in our imperfections. Like the Achilles heal, Chiron is a place of vulnerability. We can heal our deepest wounds here by being open about them and exposing the deep-seated pain in the subconscious. Showing this with trust allows other people to trust as well, and this is the way Chiron functions. He reminds people to also cherish and appreciate one another for the help and support w can each offer so nobody has to deal with the struggles of life alone.
It builds character to find confidence in your imperfections, and not let your sense of perfectionism overrule the sympathy and compassion you can have for another. Chiron makes sure nobody regards themselves as higher or better than the rest, by reminding us of our own imperfections.
Being surrounded by conscious communicators, good listeners, and the exchange of valuable information can bring a lot of healing and self-awareness for those with Chiron in Gemini. They reach a balance between their internal- and external worlds and enhance their compassion for others if they can be mentally agile, curious, and inquisitive in positive ways.
The wound related to intellect and communication, akin to the Gemini archetype, creates a gap for these between either feeling less intelligent than others and being too bright for their own good.
Closing the gap of this wound requires these people to subscribe only to their authentic benchmark of brilliance and surrender in trust to their truthful knowing. If they can accept that they will never learn everything, they can appreciate others’ insights more and unite with other people from knowing that we need each other to exchange information and offer tools.
A fear for their own curiosity, on the other hand, would keep this wound unhealed and can starve them from what they preach to others; to be curious and explore possibilities.
Gemini is also ruled by the planet Mercury, which rules intellect and communication. Yet Gemini as the archetype is also known as the trickster. With a certain intelligence one can manipulate, seduce, and convince others without integrity and straight-forwardness.
People with Chiron in Gemini can experience great lessons and sometimes painful events related to this. Either they had to learn to be more authentic themselves and transcend a blindspot of manipulating others, or they have had to deal with that from significant figures in their lives and now teach others to be aware of this potential trap in our communication.
