An Aquarius Rising Asks About Chiron

by Kosmic Kelly September 20, 2010 10:14 AM EST
Q: I've just read that Chiron is moving into Aquarius this week. That is my rising sign (sun sign Gemini) so Im wondering if that has any additional affect on me? Thanks!

A: Whenever a major celestial body changes signs it does bring a shift in cosmic energy and influence. Due to its retrograde (backwards) motion, Chiron is temporarily back in Aquarius, from 20 July 2010 8 February 2011. Through this period, Chiron is only energising the final degrees of Aquarius (26 Aquarius 30 Aquarius.

This will most affect you if you have planets or chart points like your rising sign (also known as the ascendant) at 26, 27, 28 or 29 degrees of Aquarius. Chiron is linked to the concept of the wounded healer, and often shows us where we are vulnerable or insecure so that we can take time and energy to heal our wounded qualities. Sometimes Chirons influence also acts to provide us with a key to help us overcome some of lifes ongoing challenges.

Alternative learning and healing are big themes of Chirons, especially around issues to do with abandonment in childhood. If any of these qualities resonate with you, working to accept your unique qualities and celebrate your wholeness in its weird, wacky and wonderful ways can help you heal any wounds Chiron may highlight about being different.
