Falling On Cupid's Arrow



by Jessica Shepherd February 19, 2010 06:48 PM EST

Chiron is joined with Neptune right now in the sky, and will be for the rest of February. We all have a Chiron in our chart. Chiron is the archetype of the wounded healer. You may know him as a Guide, or Wise Teacher in your life. How was he wounded? In the middle of a tussle at a dinner party, he was accidentally struck by a poisoned arrow and spent the rest of his life trying to get over it. Chiron is a shaman, really, the archetype of the teacher who has survived something, and teaches from the pain that becomes wisdom. Yet, he can also be the piece of us that can’t get over something, and can’t figure out how to ‘end’ a frustrating pattern, like a broken record playing throughout our life. We can become ‘stuck’ there. Yet there’s a Guru waiting to be recognized.

Similarly, we can get poisoned by a relationship experience and spend the rest of our life trying to get over it. Frankly, even in a great relationship we fall on our own arrow all the time! But we also heal through falling on that arrow.

What’s the difference between neurotically repeating and healing a pattern? Our consciousness, our heart-attention, our willingness to take a level of responsibility for changing it. Chiron transits allow our self to fall on the arrow of our own misery one more time, so we can finally unwrap what ails us, through talk-therapy, working on our self, self-help, and stark realizations. We don’t necessarily have all the answers during Chiron periods, but we do have the right tools and teachers around to help us uncover patterns that continue to hurt us. So if your still waiting for your personal Valentine's Day to arrive, know we all have the ability to make our broken record patterns more conscious right now. And our conscious attention will help us get over it!
