We all feel trapped inside of our bodies, mind, or lives in general sometimes. It is as if we don’t have control over our destiny, and despite what we do, the outcome doesn’t align with our desires.
The same ominous pattern keeps playing again, and we start believing there’s some inexplicable power that directs the course of our destiny.
One question startles our minds. – How do we stop this terrifying loop?
As we hit the wall and see the same outcomes every time, no matter how we approach the situation, we ask ourselves if there is a greater purpose of it all? And if there is, how do we get the crucial answers and reasons for our agony and troubles?
These dreadful patterns can be as simple as failing the same task at work multiple times. Or continuously encountering the same type of managers that always ask us to do something better but never notice when we do something well.
It may also show in relationships. Maybe we can’t seem to get to a particular stage in connection, no matter how many times we try and how many people we meet. We do our best to adjust and look for different people, but we end up with the same character every time.
The pattern might go beyond that. Perhaps we feel ready for a change, the next step in life, or life-changing decisions, but we are too stuck to get there. It seems that time passes, but nothing ever changes. We are always there, in the same position and the same place.
These experiences and feelings are not meaningless. It leads us to one part we all have inside, and that part is responsible for feeling vulnerable, cornered, and scared. Chiron is the ruler of these troubles, pointing to the things we try to conceal and repress.
Chiron sends warning signals that we should start uncovering hidden wounds and digging for traumatic past beliefs, experiences, and recurrences.
No one should go through the same problems endlessly because it paralyzes development and evolution. Chiron helps us to transform our wounds into lessons, strengths, and powers.
Chiron: History and origins
Scottish astrologer, Maurice Wemyss, predicted in 1935 that the world would discover a celestial body with an affinity for Sagittarius. The characteristics of that envisioned planetoid that resembles Chiron. She thought that the world would find this heavenly body.
Indeed, that happened 42 years after. Humans got to met Chiron in 1977 when the American astronomer Charles Kowal saw a new planet in the sky.
The original name of that planetoid was Object Kowal because Kowal labeled it as a minor celestial planet. But they renamed it Chiron, honoring the mythical creature Centaur.
The world also knows Chiron as the Rainbow Bridge due to his eccentric position between Saturn and Uranus.
It orbits between these two planets, which makes his transits slow. It spends between four and nine years in one zodiac sign, and it takes him roughly 49 to travel through all twelve of them.
Chiron goes through many retrogrades. It is why we feel its powerful impact in our fifties. That is the time when our wounds open up again, requiring us to revisit and heal them.
Chiron’s symbol looks like a key, and that resembles his role: to unlock our wounds and help us find a better place, the one where we will reach serenity. What we know about Chiron also leads us to mythology. Chiron was an immortal centaur as his father was the god of time, Cronus.
Chiron wasn’t a typical uneducated, drunk, and uncivilized centaur. On the contrary, he was kind, intelligent, and a mentor of ancient Greek heroes. Chiron had a tragic fate: his parents abandoned him at birth, and he got struck by a poisonous arrow during a feud between Hercules and centaurs.
Hercules felt the burden of guilt and begged the gods to have compassion for Chiron. They allowed him to take the fate of Prometheus, and Chiron accepted. His life and death remind us that some wounds continuously reappear, and we often can’t control them.
Chiron’s wounds teach us how to overcome our own and becoming the healers
Author of Chiron and the healing journey, Melanie Reinhart, says that we all act through a triad of figures. Our roles are fluid, and that’s why Reinhart comes up with a concept known as Three Faces of Chiron. We are the victim (or the one who’s wounded), the perpetrator (the one who inflicts pain to other people), and also the one who heals ourselves.
We switch these identities in the process of recovery because it helps us overcome our struggles. Particular events, situations, or tragedies related to Chiron’s position in a natal chart are the ones to start the healing.
Chiron in Libra (House VII): Meaning and general traits
People with Libra in Chiron strive to be in a relationship because, otherwise, they feel that something is lacking in their lives. They look for their soul mate, for the right one, and love that will heal their wound. That wound is associated with loneliness.
These individuals believe that if they find the most compatible partner, they will fill the inner void and stop feeling alone. But Libra Chiron people never seem to mend their wounds. It is why they chase anything that might help with finding balance and reaching a sense of completeness.
Solitude torments them, but so do the relationships. Persons with Chiron in Libra can’t determine why they still can’t suffocate the pain once they find a partner. No matter how they try to approach their struggle, they can’t run away from the ache within.
Libra Chiron people tend to struggle with anxiety, shame, and guilt. As children, they didn’t feel that other kids genuinely accept them, even if those around them didn’t notice. It is why as grown-ups, they seek that acceptance and compatibility. They believe they will find it with the right partner.
Yet, no one feels like a satisfying match. Even though Libra Chiron people feel incomplete and lonely without someone next to them, they discover they don’t feel a big difference with a romantic partner. That is why they tend to break up faster than they started a relationship.
Still, Libra Chiron individuals won’t wait too long before continuing their love pursuit. It is why other people will rarely see them alone. The truth is, these individuals are terrified of being alone.
They feel incomplete without a relationship that would address their needs, worries, and hopes. It is why they dedicate their lives to the pursuit of a soul mate. When they imagine life without anyone in their companionship, they see reality as grim and hopeless.
However, as Libra Chiron people desperately seek their missing piece of a puzzle, they often stay in toxic relationships and with people who are not a match for them.
Thus, when they are in love, they fear losing their loved ones. It is why they avoid every potential conflict. That means that they are likely to suffocate their needs to keep someone in their life. People with Chiron in Libra will rather ignore the burning issues and continue the status quo if it saves them from being alone.
Even though the balance is essential for their mental well-being, Libra Chiron individuals often live in disharmony and neglect their needs to nurture their partner or family. They struggle with a lack of self-love.
It is why they frequently put on a mask when with friends or partners. Persons with Chiron in Libra are afraid that if others see them for who they are, they won’t like them. So, they are quite different when in a company and when alone.
Individuals with Chiron in Libra seek beauty in everything around them. That’s their comfort and escape from life. But it’s also the reason why they are often creative, avid readers, and artists.
A soul mate is within us; it’s the lesson Libra Chiron people need to learn. They have to find a balance between their needs and those of other people. Otherwise, they will always feel that something is missing.
If they open up to others and show what they need, they will likely find out that people recognize what Libra Chiron wants and provide them with what they lack. The outcome is a revelation that they can attract what completes them if only they show their true selves.
