Chiron, the Wounded Healer in the Birth Chart

Chiron is the wounded healer in your birth chart. Where Chiron appears you have an existential wound, but in the healing of that wound you can become the healer of others.

For example, ‘Chiron conjunct Jupiter’ in the birth chart, is the person who may go in for ungrounded expansion and hurt others, or be overcome by the glamour of false healers or glitzy readers. But with diligence and through the grace of God and the help of others, and by learning from their mistakes, such a person may come to be able to help others find their needed expansion – and he or she can do this, because of all the errors, follies and false methods that that person has gone through themselves.

Shadow Chiron is the wounder or the victim.

The position of Chiron in the horoscope shows us where our instinctual nature is wounded.

Chiron, discovered in 1977, is a planetoid following an elliptical orbit round the Sun between the orbits of those ancient enemies: Saturn and Uranus (restriction and revolution). Its orbital period is 49 to 51 years.

To analyze Chiron’s effect, look at your birth chart and read Chiron’s:-

There’s an odd fact that a vastly high number of people who come to me have the aspect in their birth chart: Chiron opposition Uranus: a wound from impatience and often the mother having experienced spasmodic energies when she was carrying them in her womb. The healing of this wound is often meditation, body energy work or vision work.
In more detail, to show you how Chiron analysis works, I often find this person had a mother who was under intermittent anxiety during the pregnancy or early infancy. With the mother, periods of calm were unexpectedly shattered by sudden anxiety (perhaps when the father came into the room, or a sibling, or perhaps there were homelessness pressures, whatever). This instills in the child a need to heal periodic fragmenting anxiety so that peace can be found. It provides a dangerous addiction to excitement, de-stabilizing anxiety or addiction to melt-down to bring in the new. At root, it dishonours phenomena and fails to give value to what it. It is a wound that needs to be healed. When you heal it, you can heal others.

Chiron – Uranus often highlights desire for freedom from restraints, e.g. making sudden changes in relationships or careers, love of new ideas,  new ways of living, or love of the unusual or the bizarre – all these can be on principle, with the risk it’s damaging. There’s a desire to break limitations and stand out in a crowd. These people can be intolerant of others’ ideas, or blissfully unaware of their own contradictions: and therefore hypocritical. They can be brilliant original thinkers, iconoclastic and challenging: clear perceptions. They can be detached, humanitarian, compassionate; sensitive to collective/unconscious issues – but must accept realistic limits and structures or remain ungrounded. Nothing is sacred: indiscriminate rebellion. Energy follows thought. At its best, Chiron-Uranus is a gift for giving birth to the new without indiscriminate rejection of the old, and without devaluing things or hurting people.

    I suppose I am one of those high numbered people who are curious about chiron and Uranus. Thank you for the post.

  2. Kira says:

    Thank you so much for this. You can add one more to that number: I, too, have Uranus opposing my Chiron and I’m healing, as we speak, with the help of energy work and sahaja yoga, since I grew up in an unstable home with a hysterical mother and ended up with anxiety disorder and several other nerve issues (!)

    Dear Michael,
    Thank you for this. I can confirm what you have said about Chiron and Uranus. In 1990, I had twin boys with this 4th house Chiron conjunct Jupiter opposition Uranus. I can tell you I was under extreme stress when I was pregnant. My husband was emotionally abusive and I was on the verge of leaving, throughout the pregnancy. Another thing that occurred was that the muscles in my abdominal wall tore completely and the babies were exposed more to the outside world pre-birth. As 23 year olds now, I am doing everything I can to help them. I have Chiron in Pisces, in my second house.

  4. TheWooMaster says:

    My husband has this and its completely spot-on. His mother had lost the previous child late-term and was sick with worry througout her pregnancy.

  5. Thank you for posting this, I do have this placement as well. I have Uranus conjunct both my moon and venus all while opposing Chiron in my natal chart. These aspects are playing out in my 8th & 2nd house. There were multiple dynamics being played out, obviously, with my mother while she carried me – as far as I can imagine, knowing that her background stemmed from a lifestyle of prostitution since her preteen years in the slums of Seoul, Korea, I can also imagine the multitude of emotional turmoils that she may have experienced. Although she was a hateful person she still managed to maneuver a mastermind plan within herself to escape her reality there by marrying the first GI she met (my dad) in hopes to finding a better life here in America. Although she may have been removed from the environment (korea), not much within was removed or healed for that matter.

    I have Chiron opposition Uranus and Mars Conjunction. And Chiron is in Aries my MC. What is all that?

  7. Mike says:

    I have Chiron opposition Uranus and Mars Conjunction. And Chiron is in Aries my MC. What is all that? Add to that, my sun sign is scorpio, another Martian sign.

  8. Rebecca H says:

    I have Chiron in Aries in 5th house. My 1st born daughter was born with 2 degrees conjunct my Chiron (13 degree) in 2009. Can you tell me what this means please. I am very nervous about this placement that I just discovered!
