Chiron is known as the wounded healer in astrology. Even though he was able to heal others, he couldn’t treat his own injury.
Your Chiron sign in astrology shows where you sustained your deepest wound. Chironic wounds can never be completely healed, but they can be worked with and transmuted for good.
Chiron in Pisces is an especially interesting placement because both Chiron and the sign of Pisces represent duality. There is a push-pull with this sign; you want to be “one” with the universe but also feel that you cannot be because of your human nature.
This duality also means that Chiron in Pisces manifests in one of two ways. Keep reading to find out which side of Chiron in Pisces you represent.
The Chiron In Pisces Wound
Chiron in Pisces is all about a loss of trust in the universe. With Chiron in Pisces, you don’t completely believe in the oneness of all that is.
In the first scenario, you have a deep fear of being hurt by the universe or the forces at play. You might feel that the world is unfair or merciless, or that you have been “left out to dry.”
Often, those with Chiron in Pisces have a sense of betrayal. You feel that the universe wasn’t there for you when you most needed the help. You may also feel a sense of victimization.
Chiron in Pisces has a lot to do with the idea of fate. Most individuals with Chiron in Pisces think, even subconsciously, that they were dealt an unfair hand in life.
If this is how you express your Chiron in Pisces sign then your biggest issue will be that you have emotionally disconnected. The pain you felt by this “rejection” from the universe overwhelmed you and you shut down.
Alternatively with Chiron in Pisces, you might feel like you’re not deserving of the energy of the universe. You probably feel the suffering of the world very deeply and find it easy to become stuck in your own suffering.
When someone feels pain, you feel it right alongside them. The pain of others is amplified but your own wounds are intensified, too.
Even though you don’t victimize yourself in the traditional sense, you create a victim mentality by getting stuck in the pain of the world. You can’t understand why the universe is set up this way; you feel that the way of the world is unfair to you and to others.
Sometimes, someone with Chiron in Pisces can express qualities of both of these sides, but more often those with Chiron in Pisces tend to either fit into the first scenario or the second.
How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself
With Chiron in Pisces, depending on how you experience your pain, you will react in one of two ways.
Firstly, you may develop a hard shell of cynicism. You don’t have much empathy for others because you feel that the world and the universe had no empathy for you.
When feelings threaten to overwhelm you, it’s easier for you to shut them out. You may be very avoidant of people and situations that bother your or you may engage in escapist behaviors such as drinking, doing drugs, or other addictive behaviors.
Alternatively, you identify with the underdog. You try to always rescue others and have immense sympathy for anyone in the smallest amount of pain.
You may feel overwhelmed by your empathy; it’s easy for you to wallow in your feelings. You can also become a martyr, even emotionally, and cause a lot of suffering to yourself and those around you because of your wild emotions.
Sometimes, with Chiron in Pisces, you even idealize the suffering that you feel while being simultaneously horrified by it. You have no energetic barrier so the energy of others seeps right into you and influences how you act.
Sometimes, those with Chiron in Pisces express a bit of both of these qualities or swing back and forth between extreme cynicism and empathy.
Where Does The Chiron In Pisces Wound Come From?
Your Chiron in Pisces was created at some point in the past when you needed something badly and didn’t get it. You felt like the universe let you down and believed that you weren’t important.
These negative feelings created a deep wound surrounding your connectedness to the universe and your importance in the world. You felt less important than others.
Sometimes, the Chiron in Pisces wound stems from a past life, but it often has some roots in your childhood during this life, too.
Maybe you felt insignificant to your parents in some way. Perhaps your parents didn’t notice your accomplishments. Often, people find that their parents didn’t acknowledge their specialness or see how they fit into the world.
Look to the house to see where you most experienced Chiron in Pisces.
If you became wounded with Chiron in Pisces during a past life, then the events of your childhood only solidified your belief that the universe doesn’t have your back and that you really don’t have a purpose in the way that others do.
How to Heal Chiron in Pisces
Typically with Chiron in Pisces, you want to run away from the wound. Pisces is all about escapism and this certainly applies with the Chiron in Pisces placement.
There is simply no way to heal the Chiron in Pisces wound without turning around and facing it head on. You may need to re-live past experiences and go through the pain rather than around it.
The goal is to figure out what is true and what is false. You have some false beliefs about the universe and about your place in the world.
You may think that the universe/God (or your version of God) isn’t on your side or that you have been left behind. You may feel unimportant. The goal is to confront these negative beliefs and dig into them in a logical way.
Figure out why some of these false beliefs aren’t true. This can be quite a lot of work and self-reflection but is always worth it in the end.

Chiron is always painful regardless of where it sits, and when Chiron is aspected, there is no exception.
Sometimes, Chiron aspects to a planet make the planet more painful than usual, but it can also be helpful to have your Chiron aspected.
An aspected Chiron gives you an avenue through which you can start to heal your Chiron.
For example, with Chiron conjunct Mars, you know that the healing path for Chiron involves learning to exert your will. Without an aspect, you would simply be stuck.
I generally believe that Chiron aspects must have a relatively close orb to really be felt (3-4 degrees), but I do know of a few people who have a Chiron aspect that is over 8 degrees and they certainly feel the aspect.
Every Chiron aspect is specific to the person and to the chart, as always!
Sun conjunct Chiron
If you have the sun conjunct Chiron aspect, your pain and wound is related to your self-expression. You may feel as though you have to hide your true self. This is especially apparent in the house that the conjunction sits in.
You might not have enough self-confidence to go after what you want or to achieve your goals with sun conjunct Chiron. It can take almost a whole lifetime to heal this wound, but it’s well worth it!
I find that the sun conjunct Chiron wound often stems directly from the relationship with the father. Sometimes the father created this wound, and other times he simply made the wound that already existed more painful.
Regardless, you probably had a very distressing relationship with your father or male authority figure. You didn’t get the love and acceptance that you needed. As a child, you might have craved attention or to be noticed, but this wasn’t given to you, either.
At the worst, you might have been humiliated or denied by your father.
Look to the house that your sun conjunct Chiron aspect is in to see where you experienced these traumas the most in childhood.
For example, the sun conjunct Chiron aspect in the 12th house could mean that the father was missing, absent, or emotionally unavailable, while the 3rd house could mean that you were never heard or listened to; you had no voice.
Of course, the manifestation of the sun conjunct Chiron aspect depends a lot on the sign/element that both planets sit in as well as the house.
You probably react in some way when the sun conjunct Chiron aspect is triggered. You may react outwardly and hurt others through anger or words (more common with fire signs) or retreat and beat yourself up mentally (more common with water signs).
One gift with the sun conjunct Chiron aspect is that you have great potential to understand suffering around you. Because suffering is so inherent to who you are and is something that you experience almost daily through your sun sign, you can easily spot someone else in pain.
People with the sun conjunct Chiron aspect can be great healers or even just truly kind people, especially as they continue to work through some of the pain of the Chironic wound.
If you have the sun conjunct Chiron aspect, you need to work on your low self-confidence. Try to put yourself out there and go after what you want; you will gain self-confidence slowly through action.
You might lack the masculine push that makes your sun truly shine. This is regardless of your gender, for we all have both masculine and feminine within us. The sun is typically masculine because it is bright and active, but your sun might feel dimmed because of this aspect.
Self-expression and creativity are the keys to igniting the power of your sun sign. You must learn how to be yourself, unapologetically, without fear of the father or of re-triggering the wound.
In fact, you probably will re-trigger the wound as you work through these issues, but this is actually beneficial to help. It is only by triggering your Chiron that you can begin to deal with it and gain self-confidence even though you experience pain.
If this wound did stem from your relationship with your father, or even if he simply re-triggered the wound from a past life, you may need to realize that he will never accept you in the way you want. You can still heal your wound by learning to understand your father and forgive him.
Much of this sun conjunct Chiron wound revolves around understanding that the past cannot be undone and that bad things happened to you so that you could learn. Now, it is time to discover how to accept yourself and eventually, rejection from others will no longer hurt.
I also find that some people with sun conjunct Chiron reject the masculine side of themselves in an attempt to reject the father, or they overemphasize the masculine side in order to gain his approval.
The healing path here is to determine what is authentically masculine about you (we all have parts of us that are authentically masculine) and to embrace those pieces of yourself rather than try to fabricate new ones.
Typically, Moon-Chiron aspects indicate that your wound was created through nurturing issues and show up in your emotions.
Moon conjunct Chiron:
The moon conjunct Chiron aspect in the natal chart often has to do with trauma related to the mother or the main caretaker during early childhood. This can manifest in a few different ways.
If you have the moon conjunct Chiron aspect, your mother might have been wounded and you took on her pain because you learned how to cope from her. You might feel like a mini replica of your mother in this area.
The sign and house that the moon conjunct Chiron aspect sit in will tell you more about where and how that pain manifests.
The wounds that you saw your mother take on and cope with, when you were a child, influence you now as an adult. You might subconsciously take them on yourself and play out her role without meaning to, even if you know it wasn’t for her best interest.
If this is the case, it is important that you now do the inner work to separate from your mother and experience her pain from your own point of view rather than hers. You also need to form your own beliefs about what you wound means instead of using hers.
Alternatively, you might have felt unwanted or abandoned by your mother. Instead of internalizing her pain, this wound was caused by your mother’s reaction to you.
Moon conjunct Chiron is a very painful aspect. If the outcome of this aspect is that you felt unwanted and that you weren’t taken care of, you might now feel extremely lonely and insecure.
There are many ways that this could have played out. Your mother might have been absent, verbally abusive and aggressive, passive-aggressive, or simply ignored your emotional needs.
You also might develop nurturing issues towards yourself and others. You may ignore your own needs because they were ignored by your mother or primary caretaker, or you might ignore the needs of others who are close to you (your partner, children, family, friends, pets, etc.).
The healing path with this moon conjunct Chiron aspect is to reconnect with the inner child and give your child what they didn’t get when you were actually little.
I personally believe that the inner child will always exist energetically on some dimension, so simply ignoring them isn’t an option. You won’t be able to heal these wounds until you go through the process of healing yourself inside.
Only then can you nurture yourself and others in an appropriate, caring way.

Moon trine Chiron:
With Moon trine Chiron, you have the ability to heal your Chironic wound through your emotions. Although this wound was created by an emotional pain (often related to the mother), you do possess the tools to heal it.
In fact, Moon trine Chiron means that there is a natural path to heal your Chiron. You will have many opportunities, when your emotions are triggered, to work through them.
Like any Chironic placement, Moon trine Chiron is painful. However, you will almost always feel a sense of progress and rightness.
You can use your intuition to overcome your Moon trine Chiron wound. You have a sense about what you need to do in order to heal.
Moon sextile Chiron:
With Moon sextile Chiron, you have deep emotions relating to your wound. This is a difficult placement because every time your emotions are triggered, the wound also pops up.
However, Moon sextile Chiron means that you have an opportunity to heal Chiron in these very instances. When your emotions are triggered, the Universe is giving you a path forward to address your wound.
With Moon sextile Chiron, you will be put in many situations where you must do the work to heal. You can avoid looking at your Chironic wound if you wish, because the Moon sextile Chiron aspect simply means you can work through your wound.
It would behoove you to address your Chironic wound as soon as possible in order to experience less pain in your life.
Moon opposition Chiron:
With Moon opposition Chiron, you might feel like a bottomless pit when it comes to your emotions. You’re never fulfilled; you don’t know if there’s anyone or anything out there that could fix how you feel.
Your emotional wounds are extremely slow to heal. Moon opposition Chiron means that your Chironic wound is emotional in some way, but it’s probably very murky to you. This is a wound of shadows.
Your Moon opposition Chiron aspect means that you have two opposite signs involved in this trauma. For example, you might have Moon in Aries and Chiron in Libra.
This aspect also means that you tend to focus entirely on one sign and ignore the other. You actively try to heal your wound through only one of these signs.
However, the Moon opposition Chiron wound will never truly be healed until you’re able to integrate both signs together. Your path to healing has the qualities and elements of both opposite signs.
You probably can’t ignore your pain, but you focus on it in the wrong way. If you do try to ignore the wound, you simply become more emotional and delusional.
Instead, you need to find a balanced, logical approach to healing your Chironic wound.
Moon square Chiron:
With Moon square Chiron, you have trouble expressing your feelings and emotional needs. When someone asks you if you’re alright, you probably say you’re fine even though it might be a lie.
Some people with Moon square Chiron have a tendency to overly emote or spill all of their feelings, then later feel guilty or awkward. They might try to avoid the person they spoke too entirely! There is an imbalance here so emotions often come out sideways.
With Moon square Chiron, you might feel as though emotional satisfaction is just out of reach. You always believe you will feel fulfilled if you just reach the next milestone, then are continuously disappointed.
Ultimately, the Moon square Chiron aspects creates intense feelings of guilt. This is why you never tell other people about your emotions; you feel that to do so is burdensome. You also feel awkwardness about even showing emotion.
You might ignore problems in order to maintain your appearance or because you don’t want to worry others. However, when you do this for too long, it makes it difficult to heal your wounds.
Sometimes, you even take on other peoples’ issues in addition to your own. You will eventually feel overburdened emotionally, even though you will try to hide these feelings.
The first step with Moon square Chiron is to own your feelings. Find a way to tell those who are close to you how you truly feel when you feel it. At first, your words might come out awkward or wrong, but this is something that takes practice.
The only way for you to heal the wound with Moon square Chiron is to eventually open up and lessen your own sense of guilt. Care for yourself, for once, instead of for everyone else. Remember that your feelings matter too.
The work to heal Moon square Chiron is deep and subconscious. It simply takes time.
Ultimately, Moon square Chiron people can have so much awareness about human emotions! They have experienced so much emotional pain that, when they work through the wound, they can go on to be extremely understanding and empathetic.
Mercury conjunct Chiron
If you have the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect, you were silenced at some point in your childhood. You may have experienced rejection when you wanted to share your thoughts with someone or you were told that your words were wrong or bad, or just that they didn’t matter.
You were especially silenced in the house and sign that Mercury conjunct Chiron is in.
This creates a wound that can manifest in a few different ways.
You be try to achieve perfectionism at all times. You may never speak without being sure that what you’re saying is perfect and double or triple check all of your work.
Alternatively, you may avoid all things logical and communication-related. Sometimes, people with the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect work with their hands, avoid socializing, etc. so that the wound isn’t re-triggered.
Mercury conjunct Chiron can also indicate a disability to speech or movement. It might be social anxiety or general anxiety about saying the wrong thing.
It can also mean that your wound was caused by your siblings or peers, either in this life or in a past life. You might have felt invisible and that no one understood you, or you may have been bullied and insulted.
The path to heal the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect involves learning to speak freely and to express yourself without fear.
The goal is not to be absolutely perfect in all communication, but to accept that anything less than perfection is simply a part of who you are and is good and right.
With the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect, there is a chance to heal through words and logical thinking. Owning who you are and building up your own self-esteem is very important.
You will find healing power in words once you use them in a way that words for you.
Venus-Chiron aspects are all about wounding through relationships. It shows your potential for either healing or triggering the wound while in a relationship or partnership. These aspects can also indicate how much you “run away” from the wound by focusing on superficial things rather than the core issue.
Venus conjunct Chiron:
With Venus conjunct Chiron in the natal chart, you have low-self esteem in the area of love because of your wound. You don’t feel worthy of love and might question if you’re even likable.
You might have a fear of abandonment and rejection lurking in the back of your mind at all times. You may also choose partners who make you feel rejected, creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.
It can be really hard for you to set boundaries with Venus conjunct Chiron. You might feel like the only way to get acceptance from other people is to give up your own desires.
Venus conjunct Chiron can sometimes mean that you’re sensitive and wounded when it comes to all things feminine. Often, the way you look feels painful.
You might try to “overcome” your wound by achieving physical beauty or becoming obsessed with how you look. This only hides the wound temporarily.
Alternatively, it is your physical appearance that causes you pain and triggers the wound.
Venus conjunct Chiron is a tough aspect in the natal chart. It can make romantic relationships and love very painful, but it extends beyond just partnerships and creates a wound that steps on who you are and your feminine side.
As with any Chiron placement, the healing path for Venus conjunct Chiron involves accepting your inner child or shadow self instead of changing your outer appearance or personality.
It is simply impossible to hide from the shadow self forever. Even though it’s more painful, the best way to heal is to go through rather than around.
Venus trine Chiron:
With Venus trine Chiron, you are drawn to relationships but also fear them. You instinctively/unconsciously know that healing is done through relationships, but you also sense that it will be painful.
This placement means that relationships are essential to heal your Chironic wound. Love and partnerships are vessels to finally alter your wound for good.
However, be careful with Venus trine Chiron that you don’t depend on someone else to “fix” you. It’s easy to look for healing in someone else and ignore that which is within you.
Venus trine Chiron means that you should embrace your relationships for the purpose of healing, but remember that true healing comes from within. Your relationships simply give you a means to get there.
Once you’re in a relationship, you must do the work yourself. Venus trine Chiron simply means that your relationships will put you in situations to help you heal, not that your partner will magically heal you.
Venus sextile Chiron:
With Venus sextile Chiron, you have the opportunity to heal your Chironic wound through relationships. However, you must actively seek out ways to heal yourself and do the work.
Be careful that you don’t get stuck in superficial love situations. Venus sextile Chiron means that you can easily focus on how things “look” rather than on the wound within.
You should also avoid relationships where you keep the peace. This is a sign, with Venus sextile Chiron, that you’re ignoring the wound within.
All this Venus sextile Chiron placement means is that in a relationship, you will have more situations that trigger your Chironic wound, enabling you to work on it. However, you must actually do this work inside of just waiting until the situations pass.
Venus sextile Chiron may still be a bit painful, but you will come out on the other side much faster if you push through and do inner work at every turn.
Venus opposition Chiron:
With Venus opposition Chiron, your wounds are likely to come out in romantic relationships or close friendships. However, you also seek out intimate relationships as much as possible.
You depend on others loving you. When someone doesn’t approve of you or show you affection, you might feel extremely let down.
What you don’t realize is that because of Venus opposition Chiron, the true issue is your own lack of self love. You look to others to fill you up and make you feel better, but it will never truly work.
When someone disapproves of you, it’s easy for you to fixate on how to mend the situation. However, you wouldn’t be feeling so badly if you didn’t agree with them deep down.
Self love is an important lesson with Venus opposition Chiron. The only way to heal your Chironic wound is to stop focusing on others and look inside.
You may also think that if things “look good” then the wound will be healed. Venus opposition Chiron means that you may focus too much on image or superficial friendships or relationships. This is simply taking you further away from healing your Chironic wound. Instead, look within to the shadow self.
Venus square Chiron:
Venus square Chiron can indicate physical, emotional, or sexual abuse in a past life or in childhood. With this aspect, you have been wounded in love. This can refer to either platonic or romantic love.
Now, you may have issues with low self-esteem and truly loving yourself. You’re probably generous with others, but you don’t always treat yourself well.
Venus square Chiron can mean that you give love to those who don’t necessarily deserve it (those who wound you) while you ignore those who should receive your love.
There’s potential with this Venus square Chiron aspect for you to treat those closest to you rather badly. You’re always chasing something, but when someone does give you love (and it does nothing to fix your wound) you stop noticing.
Most relationships are painful for you with Venus square Chiron. You just can’t get a grip on exactly what you’re looking for.
Be cautious of getting stuck in relationships with emotionally abusive partners. Sometimes, you subconsciously re-trigger the wound over and over, as though you’re reliving your trauma.
Alternatively, you might actually become abusive in relationships in order to get a sense of control. You mistakenly believe that this will fix the wound inside. However, it’s actually a sense of love you’re looking for, not control or power.
Ultimately, the Venus square Chiron wound can only be worked through by looking within. If you find yourself accepting negative treatment from others or treating those around you badly, this is a signal to look within. It is painful work, but it can be done and you will then experience more positive, nurturing relationships.
Mars conjunct Chiron
With Mars conjunct Chiron, your wound was created due to an act of aggression. You learned that aggression was bad and painful.
Now, Mars conjunct Chiron may manifest as your struggle to be assertive, low self-esteem with your endeavors, and low drive. You might keep your aggression hidden and display only nice, diplomatic tendencies. You feel that it’s not OK to get angry.
Alternatively, you may overcompensate with misplaced, excessive aggression and impulsiveness.
Mars conjunct Chiron can signify painful relationships with men or aggressive sexual trauma, although this is not always the case.
You may be very good at hiding when the wound has triggered you, but there is always an unsettled emotional undercurrent. There may also be an unconscious urgency present in you.
When you channel your energy in the right way, you can be very powerful. Often, those with Mars conjunct Chiron need to channel the excess energy that builds up inside of them due to this blockage.
There are many ways to channel energy. Some use art, music, science, writing, physical fitness, etc. Much of this will depend on other aspects in your chart and the sign and house that Mars conjunct Chiron sits in.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron
Jupiter conjunct Chiron can be the mark of a great healer or teacher, if it is used correctly. For the Jupiter conjunct Chiron individual, the adventure of life is simply the journey of healing.
At the same time, Jupiter conjunct Chiron can be a difficult placement. Jupiter magnifies everything it touches, so the Chironic wound may feel like it seeps into every aspect of your life.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron generally means that the wound was created over a trauma concerning fairness, justice, equality, morals, ethics, spirituality, or money.
This often pushes the individual ot be involved in “big-picture” things in some way. With Jupiter conjunct Chiron, you may feel strongly about humanity “getting somewhere,” especially in the house and sign that your Chiron sits in.
Saturn conjunct Chiron
If you have Saturn conjunct Chiron, you were rejected in childhood by a parent. This often signifies the father, but it can be any authority figure depending on your individual chart.
Alternatively, you may have a fear of authority figures due to your experiences in childhood. Sometimes, you were both rejected (creating negative self-worth feelings within you) and are afraid of authority.
This can manifest in many different ways. So much of the Saturn conjunct Chiron aspect depends on the sign and the house, so make sure that you study both of those and take those meanings into account.
With this Saturn conjunct Chiron wound, you might feel worthy only if you achieve something in the eyes of society. You were never worthy to your father figure, so you now try to get acceptance from society instead. You overcompensate for the wound.
This might be a push-pull. You’re always trying to live up to what you think your father figure would want from you, but you simultaneously push against it.
Alternatively, you may develop issues with control. You might seek to control yourself completely but find that you’re unable to stuff down your emotional reactions when the wound is triggered, or you might instead focus on controlling others. Again, this manifestation will depend on the house and sign.
One of the best qualities about the Saturn conjunct Chiron placement is that these folks are easily able to learn from their own mistakes. They can be rather successful in life if the chart is well-aspected and set up for success.
The work with the Saturn conjunct Chiron aspect is to learn to love your wounds for their service to you. Even though these wounds feel bad and scary, this aspect (and your Chiron in general) forces you to go within and learn to accept yourself.
You need to give your inner child or shadow self the acceptance and approval that your father figure did not in order to heal.
Saturn conjunct Chiron can often lead to a healing path. Regardless of what you actually do for your job, this aspect usually means that considerable work was done in a past life on the evolution of your consciousness, especially if the Saturn conjunct Chiron aspect is in a water sign.
Uranus conjunct Chiron
With Uranus conjunct Chiron, your wound makes you feel different or alien in society. You probably feel that you don’t fit in.
Uranus conjunct Chiron also means that your wound is triggered when you feel different. You can look to the house and the sign that Uranus conjunct Chiron sits into see exactly where and how this plays out.
To heal Uranus conjunct Chiron, you will need to come to terms with and accept your own unique nature. It can also help to figure out why you’re different and learn what you were sent to earth to accomplish.
Neptune conjunct Chiron
Neptune conjunct Chiron can mean that the wound is related to a trauma concerning alcohol or drug addiction, mental illness, or a lack of spiritual faith.
You will need to look at the house and sign Neptune conjunct Chiron sits in to determine exactly how this wound manfiests.
Most of the time, the healing path for Neptune conjunct Chiron is to learn how to trust in the Universe and in the divine.
Pluto conjunct Chiron
With Pluto conjunct Chiron, you may be very focused on what you believe is powerful. This is typically because your wound was created by someone having power over you.
Because of this Pluto conjunct Chiron wound, you believed that you needed to either acquire society power or give it up completely. You have power and control issues and you don’t know how to manage them.
The key to healing Pluto conjunct Chiron is to delve into what truly happened to create the wound instead of trying to cover it up with external power.

Chiron conjunct Vesta
Vesta can refer to a lot of different things in life, so Chiron conjunct Vesta is a tricky aspect to explain. I’ll do my best to lay out each interpretation; you will need to look at the conjunction, the house, the sign, and other aspects to see which will fit.
Sometimes, Chiron conjunct Vesta manifests so that the individual feels like they must be perfect all of the time in some area. There is no flexibility. For example, with Chiron conjunct Vesta in the 9th house, an individual might have a deep fear of failing out of school or appearing unintelligent.
Alternatively, it might manifest in a gender imbalance. For example, a girl who grows up in a home with only women where men are shunned may feel that this gender imbalance contributes to the wound and stifles their own masculine side.
Chiron conjunct Vesta is common in natal charts of people who had to move away from their homes or families. It shows in those who lost a parent, went to boarding school, grew up in an orphanage, or were exiled or isolated in some way. This isn’t always the case (as I said, Chiron conjunct Vesta has many meanings and interpretations).
It can also appear in people’s charts who grew up in bleak homes. Vesta signifies religion or a monastery or nunnery, so it can often mean that the person was stifled in their home in some way.
Generally, Vesta points to spirituality, religion, sexuality, and devotion. All of these things can be healthy when balanced or can quickly become harmful when unbalanced.
Look to the sign and house that your Chiron conjunct Vesta aspect fits in and see where you are unbalanced and where any imbalance may be covering up the Chironic wound.
Chiron conjunct Pallas
You path of healing and initiation is likely to be very intellectual and creative, and could well include political involvement. You may employ art therapy as a means of awakening self-awareness. Your intelligence naturally gravitates to holistic and natural methods, and you articulate your understanding both verbally and artistically with great insight. Your journey is about upholding justice and promoting the arts within your social milieu, as well as finding keys to your personal healing and transformation.
Chiron conjunct Juno
With Chiron conjunct Juno, you have a wound surrounding marriage and long-term partnerships, most likely caused from a past life trauma.
You may also have been traumatized by your parents’ marriage or others you witnesses as a child, although this is not always the case. You may have just been hurt by your own marriage or partnership in a past life.
This trauma causes a lot of pain for you in present-day marriages or relationships. Marriage brings out all of your wounds; this is both helpful and difficult.
To heal a wound, you need to be able to see it. Chiron conjunct Juno illuminates the wound through marriage, enabling you to recognize it then work on the Chironic wound within a marriage or partnership.
Sometimes, people with Chiron conjunct Juno have a fear of commitment or a fear of being committed to.
To heal, you will need to reshape and redefine your understanding of what a marriage or partnership is.
The sign of your Chiron conjunct Juno can give you insight into how you need to redefine your definition of marriage.
Chiron conjunct Ceres
If you have the Chiron conjunct Ceres aspect, your wound comes from the nurturing that you received in childhood. Either you didn’t receive enough nurture or you weren’t nurtured in a way that was appropriate for you.
This lack of true nurture has caused this Chiron conjunct Ceres wound. Now, you might not know how to appropriately nurture yourself and others.
There is a lot of pain surrounding the ideas of nurturing and mothering. You aren’t able to self-nurture without triggering the pain of the wound.
This is actually one of the better conjunctions for Chiron. With Chiron conjunct Ceres, you have the opportunity to heal the wound through learning how to appropriately and effectively nurture yourself.
You need to figure out what type of nurturing feels good for you. Your Ceres sign and house will give you some clues as to how you naturally receive care.
Chiron conjunct North Node
If you have Chiron conjunct North Node, it is more essential than any others that you deal with Chiron in this lifetime.
In past lifetimes, you were probably taught to avoid looking at your wound, but in this lifetime, the only way to heal your Chiron wound is to deal with it straight on.
Chiron conjunct North Node is an aspect of direct action.
With Chiron conjunct North Node, it will be very difficult to learn the lessons of your North Node without first healing Chiron.
Chiron conjunct South Node
Chiron wounds often come with us from a past life, but this is especially true with the Chiron conjunct South Node aspect. I find that with this aspect, the Chironic wound not only comes from a past life but was recreated in childhood, so it might feel like you have been wounded over and over.
You probably came into this incarnation with strong memories of your Chironic wound, and these memories were only amplified in childhood. You may have even been re-wounded with the same parental souls.
Now, you probably depend on others to relieve the wound for you or you find outlets to try and relieve it, but you never actually look inside at what wounded you.
For Chiron conjunct South Node people, the answer to unlocking the trauma that Chiron caused is within. No one else can help you heal this wound.
In this lifetime, parents or authority figures either can’t or won’t give you what you need to help your Chiron heal. You need to heal yourself.
Might depend on others to relieve wound or find other ways to relieve it but never really look at it
The answer to unlocking the trauma that caused Chiron is only within you; no one else can help. You can’t depend on parents or authority figures but must find the healing path yourself. Start by simply looking within.
Chiron conjunct Ascendant
Chiron conjunct Ascendant is an especially tough placement. With this aspect, you encounter some early trauma in life or possibly even a trauma birth. I find that these people often didn’t want to be born on a soul level.
Often, this trauma was unconscious because it occurred at a soul level. It happens very early in your life.
As you grow, you have the vague feeling that you don’t have the right to exist. You feel like a social outcast, whether this is with family, friends, or society as a whole.
The Chiron conjunct ascendant aspect makes it very difficult for you to create an identity that you can show to the world. You might feel like you’re “no one” in front of others, that you don’t have an outer personality.
You may also feel insecure around others, especially strangers, and you will either retreat or act out to deal with this pain. You probably try to escape the world to escape the wound, but it follows you.
You’re afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing. You also may have a physical wound or feel lacking in some way that is strictly physical.
If this isn’t the case, you may instead change your appearance drastically to try and combat your Chironic wound, but this does not ultimately heal it.
Almost everyone with Chiron conjunct Ascendant are very self-conscious about their physical appearance.
If you have Chiron conjunct Ascendant, you probably didn’t like the way you looked growing up. Alternatively, the physical appearance was the source of trauma.
Ultimately, with Chiron conjunct Ascendant, the wound is the first mask. Over time, you come to believe that the wound is you instead of something that happened to you.
Healing will happen when you’re able to separate out the wound from who you are and see that your trauma is just something that happened to you, not who you are as a person.
Chiron conjunct Descendant
With Chiron conjunct Descendant, you are probably attracted to “wounded birds.”
You wounds are illuminated through relationships, but this is because your Chironic wound will be reflected in others. This will force you to deal with the wound.
Chiron conjunct Midheaven
If you have Chiron conjunct Midheaven, your journey to heal your Chiron will be played out in front of the eyes of others, whether this is something that you want or not.
You probably have a bit of a push-pull when it comes to your public image. You want other to see your story and your pain and to understand you, but you are simultaneously afraid of the limelight.
With Chiron conjunct Midheaven, you won’t be able to figure out what the best profession is for your soul until the wound is looked at and attended to.
Chiron conjunct IC
Chiron conjunct IC usually means that you experienced great pain in childhood. Your wound relates to your parents, grandparents, the past, your heredity, genetics, etc.
With Chiron conjunct IC, you will probably try to escape the wound by “remaining” in the 10th house career and public image life. You will put all of your focus into what you do and who you are now.
Unfortunately, your Chironic wound always bleeds through, so it will become a part of your public life, even if you don’t want it to.
This Chiron conjunct IC aspect can lead to uncomfortable airings of the deepest wound or huge amounts of drama in public places.
Alternatively, if you are able to keep your Chiron conjunct IC aspect and your public life separate (which is rare and quite hard to do with this aspect), there will be tension and conflict between your career and your internal wound.
You may feel as though your career is always aggravating your wound in some way, and this is because you must be forced to see it in order to heal it.
Chiron conjunct Lilith
With Chiron conjunct Lilith, your wound was created by a trauma that feels taboo and shameful. It may be connected to sexuality, feminism, racism, homophobia, or anything that you considered “wrong.”
The Chiron conjunct Lilith aspect, more than any other, calls on you to address painful and shameful stories. The healing path, as always, is inside of you.
Many people with Chiron conjunct Lilith try to fix the world outside, to stop a similar trauma from every happening again, but it is inside of you that needs healing and care.
Sometimes, Chiron conjunct Lilith can manifest as extreme rage. Other times it manifests as shame or extreme embarrassment. To heal this aspect, you need to find out what the trauma was and re-define your beliefs surrounding what happened.
Chiron in the wound that you’re born with, but it continues to develop throughout your life for better or worse. Chiron in Aquarius is all about feeling different. This wound can show itself in a lot of different ways.
In general, the Chironic wound is something that pops up over and over in your life. Unlike Saturn, which can be hidden, it’s hard to forget about your Chiron.
At the same time, Chiron can always be healed and used for good.
Chiron in Aquarius is especially hard to forget because it shows up any time you’re in a group setting.
I also find that Chiron in Aquarius is a super important placement because it shows you that you soul has a unique purpose on this earth.
The Chiron In Aquarius Wound
The Chiron in Aquarius wound is all about your sense of belonging in a community.
If you have Chiron in Aquarius, you might feel disconnected or self-conscious in a group setting. You feel like you don’t truly belong in the community in some way.
Aquarius is a group sign but it’s also about being different or quirky. With Chiron, this perfectly explains the wound.
You want to be in group settings but you also feel different, as though you don’t belong. You might even feel like there’s something wrong with you.
Ultimately, you just can’t fit into the community in the way that you want to.
It’s common for people with Chiron in Aquarius to seek company but be lonely among others at the same time.
Sometimes, the Chiron in Aquarius person can even feel like an outsider from the rest of humanity.
This individual can also feel unsafe, separated, ungrounded, or self-conscious around groups of people. These groups might be friends, family, the community, or other humans in general.
The Chiron in Aquarius person is often uncomfortable with the things that make them different from others, even if these qualities are actually a gift.
How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself
If you have Chiron in Aquarius, you feel different in groups, but this will manifest in one of two ways.
In the first way, you go out of your way to get a reaction about your differences. You come off as ultra-eccentric.
It is the differences that you have that you play up around others, but not necessarily in a positive way.
You might come off as weird or odd because you’re forcing these differences rather than showing them in an authentic way.
You might also react strongly to any perceived slight. You do this to break bonds that might be forming before the other people can break them or judge you because that would be too painful.
Alternatively, with Chiron in Aquarius, you might remain friendly but distant. You never really feel comfortable in a group so you’re scared to open up and show your true self.
It might be hard for others to really grasp who you are because you avoid becoming truly close.
I find that the Chiron in Aquarius person can sometimes (depending on the house) get obsessed with social causes as a way of feeling connected to society, however this might backfire because the individual really wants to belong in a group, not just to the idea of a cause.
Where Does The Chiron In Aquarius Wound Come From?
First of all, the Chiron in Aquarius wound often shows up in the charts of people who are Starseeds.
If you have Chiron in Aquarius, there is probably a good reason you feel like an outside, and that is because you quite literally hail from another planet.
Throughout your past lives on earth, these differences were probably highlighted. You might not have known how to act and how to fit in among the rules and society on Earth.
I find that this wound usually did begin with real differences, but when you were hurt by groups noticing these differences, your feelings compounded and over time created a deep, painful wound.
Now, the wound might be triggered even if you technically do fit in because the wound is inside you.
How To Heal Chiron In Aquarius
To heal Chiron in Aquarius, you must first realize that you most likely come from another solar system or even universe. You bring unique qualities to the world and these are gifts rather than burdens.
All Starseeds are here for a reason and it is bring everyone on Earth forward and to help others evolve.
Take time alone to connect with the universe and the energy that is within you. There are gifts that are natural to you and this is why you are different.
The path to healing Chiron in Aquarius involves learning to see that you do fit into the grand plan.
You need to learn how to discriminate between different systems of thought and recognize when a group isn’t a good fit for you without feeling rejected.
At the end of the day, even with Chiron in Aquarius, you do fit somewhere. To heal, you need to figure out where that is and learn to let go of resentful towards the people whom you didn’t fit in with.
Lastly, it can be helpful to look at the ways that your differences from others are actually similarities in essence. This will come through silent communication with the universe.
Chiron was only just discovered in 1977, but many astrologers (including myself) consider Chiron to be an essential asteroid in the birth chart. Today, I’ll be looking at Chiron in the houses, as well as explaining how you can put your Chiron’s sign and house together to create one fluid definition.
Our Chironic wounds indicate the area where we have been hurt to a huge extent. We carry these wounds around with us and are unable to escape them. The goal is instead to heal these wounds and use what we learn from Chiron for good.
What Is Chiron?
Chiron is known as the “wounded healer” in astrology. Through learning about Chiron, you will get to know and understand your deepest wounds that were created in a past life, in childhood, or (often) a mixture of both.
I find that it’s really beneficial to learn about Chiron, not just because you need to heal it, but because our Chironic wounds give us deeper insight into ourselves and our psyche.
How To Read Chiron In The Houses:
The signs show the nature of Chiron and how it is expressed, but the houses show the context for Chironic expression. Chiron in the houses will show where your sign is expressed, including the location, the part of the psyche, the timeline, etc.
The goal is to look at both your Chiron in the signs and Chiron in the houses together. While this is tricky to do, it takes a bit of analysis and creativity.
I included examples through these Chiron in the houses descriptions, but feel free to drop a comment with any questions. I’m happy to help you figure out what your Chiron means!
Chiron In The Signs:
If you’re looking to read about Chiron in the signs, check out these posts:
Chiron In The 1st House
Chiron in the 1st house can seem pretty obvious to everyone else. Your Chironic wound quite literally shows up in your sense of self, identity, and self-worth. Chiron is very conspicuous in the way that you present yourself.
If you have Chiron in the 1st house, Chiron might also impact your physical health or appearance in some way. The wound often manifests in a physical nature as well as emotionally or mentally.
For example, you might have been physically ignored, abused, have a physical illness, or found some part of your body lacking, depending on the sign that your Chiron in the 1st house sits in.
I find that Chiron in the 1st house can often indicate that the wound was either learned or cemented (if it was first learned in a past life) during childhood. Something about this person’s youth made this Chironic wound an integral part of the outer personality.
Because Chiron in the 1st house is related to childhood, these folks can carry the Chironic wound through their inner child as they age. They might learn to hide it after a time, but the wound will always sit with the inner child.
This Chiron in the 1st house wound will typically manifest in the person’s outward appearance and personality. When you first meet a person with Chiron in the 1st house, you will see the wound right away.
If you have this placement, look at how you feel around other people and how you present yourself. This will most likely point to the wound.
For example, someone with Chiron in the 1st house in Capricorn may have felt ignored or passed over but they also present as cold and stoic. An individual with Libra may feel dependent on others, even when they first meet them, and become clingy quickly.
If Chiron is conjunct the ascendant in the first house, these feelings will be especially strong. Chiron in the 1st house is more likely to present itself physically when it is conjunct the ascendant. Chiron in retrograde may be less obvious to others but more obvious to the individual, although this is not always the case.
Chiron In The 2nd House
If you have Chiron in the 2nd house, your wound is in the area of security. In some way, you felt as though you lacked security, safety, or well-being. This might be especially obvious during childhood with Chiron in the 2nd house.
This placement can show up in a lot of ways; this depends almost entirely on the sign that Chiron is in. For example, Chiron in Cancer may indicate a lack of emotional security or security regarding the home, while Chiron in Pisces can indicate a lack of spiritual security or the mental illness or addiction of a parent or caretaker.
Chiron in the 2nd house can manifest through security issues with inheritance, money, the home, spiritual guidance, spiritual security, emotional security, mental security, physical security, etc. These people might feel like there is no guiding force in their life (lack of parental security) or they may feel that they are coerced into decisions and can’t develop their own inner self (lack of inner security).
I find that people with Chiron in the 2nd house were often belittled in some way in childhood. They may have had little to no affection, or the affection that they did receive was inappropriate in some way.
At the end of the day, if you have Chiron in the 2nd house, you’ll want to learn how to provide the security you were missing for yourself.
You will also recognize that there is no true security on earth beyond believing in the powers of the Universe and believing that everything happens for a reason. You will learn to discern that many societal constructs are just illusions. By figuring out what’s true for you and what the Universe means to you, you’ll develop your own sense of inner security.
At the same time, it can be helpful for people with Chiron in the 2nd house to take practical steps towards feeling safe. For example, if you felt physically unsafe, creating a safe environment (in neighborhood with low crime rates, installing an alarm system, etc.) might help you to work through your Chiron.
Chiron in the 3rd House
Chiron in the 3rd house has to do with your ability to process information mentally and to communicate.
If you have Chiron in the 3rd house, you might have difficulty expressing yourself and being heard. Sometimes, you are easily heard, but your true intentions don’t come across.
It’s easy for Chiron in the 3rd house people to incur destructive or negative thought patterns, but they might alternatively avoid anything emotional and have difficulty discussing what they feel. Most people with Chiron in the 3rd house fall into one of these two extremes.
I find that people with Chiron in the 3rd house often believe strongly in rationality and logic, but this is sometimes at the expense of developing their intuition or following their gut feelings. Alternatively, these folks will use only emotion and throw logic and intuition to the wayside.
Sometimes, there is even a bit of both. The third house can be a bit erratic because it is the house of Gemini, so the individual with Chiron in the 3rd house might sometimes be completely illogical and emotional, but other times rely only on facts and avoid displays of emotion or empathy.
I also notice that Chiron in the 3rd house can relate to learning disabilities, such as dyslexia or ADD. These folks think a bit differently than others, and while there is nothing wrong with that, they inherently don’t like their differences. It is their own judgments of their differences (that are formed from society) that cause the issues.
Occasionally, Chiron in the 3rd house can also refer to a wound with siblings. There may be past life trauma or wounds with these specific siblings, or the siblings may just be unable to communicate effectively. This causes a deep wound and hurt for the Chiron in the 3rd house individual.
The way to heal Chiron in the 3rd house is to speak your truth. Learn to value your own thoughts and opinions, and practice balancing gut instincts with logic. You will develop your own method of communication with enough practice, but you must first let go of the judgement that either you or society has cast on your mental abilities.
Chiron in the 4th House
If you have Chiron in the 4th house, your Chironic wound feels most active when you’re around family or other people from your childhood.
This placement means that your home life either failed to fill the void that your Chiron sign left (in a past life; the specific void will depend on Chiron’s sign), or your childhood simply made Chiron worse. These feelings are always re-triggered when you feel like your “young self” again because your Chiron in the 4th house wound has become a part of your inner child.
You might be very sensitive around family. If things go even slightly wrong, you can easily veer into loneliness or hopelessness.
Often, Chiron in the 4th house means that at least one of your parental figures was absent. They might have been absent emotionally, mentally, or physically, but this absence affected you deeply. You may now struggle to figure out where and with whom you belong.
I find that this Chiron in the 4th house placement can lead to over-attachment (or anxious attachment) to those who do stick around. Alternatively, the individual might become less attached than normal (avoidant attachment) in order to avoid getting hurt as they did when they were a child.
In relationships, the Chiron in the 4th house individual might struggle to let go, even when the relationship is unhealthy. It’s difficult for these people to see red flags once they’re attached.
If you have this placement, you might be very good at naturally picking up on the wounds of others. Chiron in the 4th house means that you can be a great caretaker, but you can also get emotionally overwhelmed easily. You sometimes get stuck caring for people with wounds that they don’t want to heal.
With Chiron in the 4th house, you need to learn that you are the only one who can give yourself proper validation to heal. You’ll also need to understand that you’re good enough to be cared for by others and that you deserve more than what you ask for.
I find that Chiron in the 4th house is always a lesson of worthiness, but this is a quality that must be developed from the inside.
Chiron in the 5th House
Chiron in the 5th house is especially dependent on the sign that Chiron sits in. This 5th house wound is all about a deep hurt relating to the Inner Child, sexuality, romance, self-expression, or creativity.
If you have Chiron in the 5th house, you probably hide what is unique about you, especially in the sign of your Chiron. You take many various reactions from others as rejection, even when they’re not.
Your inner infant wasn’t given nonjudgmental freedom to play, so now you are hyper self-critical and aware. You are afraid of how others would receive your most vulnerable self. To try and cloak this fear, you simply suppress that part of you.
The Chiron in the 5th house person might be extra-self conscious. It’s hard for them to let go and have fun.
Although I find that Chiron in the 5th house often manifests in this way, there are a few other ways it can manifest instead.
Sometimes, Chiron in the 5th house can be about children. You might want children but are unable to have them, so you live with this wound, or you might become hyper-critical of your children because you don’t want them to experience the wound that you felt.
Alternatively, the Chiron in the 5th house person might be wounded or betrayed by partners and by romance in general.
The path to healing Chiron in the 5th house largely depends on the scenario and the Chiron sign. Learning to be vulnerable with yourself is always a good first step, as well as finding the will to create and shine, especially in your specific Chiron sign.
The goal with Chiron in the 5th house is to live from the heart with honesty and integrity.
Chiron in the 6th House
If you have Chiron in the 6th house, your woundedness plays out in the workplace or through working with the community. You will see your wound show up most often where you spend your days (work, school, etc.).
This is a tough placement for a wound because it’s hard to escape it. The wound will also depend a good deal on the sign that Chiron sits in.
Some people with Chiron in the 6th house remember feeling different from other children in school, or they felt that their wound showed up over and over in the workplace no matter how they tried to hide it.
Alternatively, the Chiron in the 6th house wound might also appear in the areas of medicine, health, or disease. Sometimes, a Chiron in the 6th house wound will show up both in day-to-day matters and health-related problems.
This placement can also create OCD if Chiron is in a sign that is relevant to this disorder. With Chiron in the 6th house, emotional issues often become physical after a time.
The lesson is to learn to fully accept the self. Most of the problems that come with Chiron in the 6th house are because the individual is trying to reject the self in some way, whether it is because the self is impure, unclean, or simply wrong.
The healing path is to realize that this is simply a false judgment and to work on accepting the inner self completely.
Chiron in the 7th House
If you have Chiron in the 7th house, your woundedness comes through relationships with others. It is being in a relationship (often a romantic relationship) that triggers your wound, although it always lies dormant under the surface, even when you don’t see it.
You may feel that you don’t have a “self” with Chiron in the 7th house. You might try to emotionally merge or mesh with your partner.
These are the folks that may stifle themselves in relationships in order to hang onto the partnership. They feel that they can’t express who they truly are.
There is potential for these people to end up in abusive relationships due to the nature of the Chironic wound, but they might instead be stifled in other ways, such as entering into a relationship with a partner who has a disability and needs constant care. They always feel as though they need to sacrifice the self.
While the Chiron in the 7th house person may truly love their partner, they might also lose themselves in the relationship.
Sometimes, these qualities and traits are learned from parents or from role models early in life. How the relationship issues manifest will depend on the sign that Chiron is in.
Chiron in the 8th House
If you have Chiron in the 8th house, your wound has to do with spirituality, death, loss, power, sexuality or money. This wound often has a lot to do with mortality.
Usually, the wound is caused by a trauma surrounding death, loss, control, sex, or financial issues (to the max). This may have been a trauma that happened to you in a past life or a trauma you experienced in childhood that caused these learned behaviors.
You are now terrified of what you learned through that trauma. Chiron in the 8th house especially creates a deep, impactful wound that can really hurt you if you don’t work to heal it.
I find that Chiron in the 8th house can indicate losses through death You might be surrounded by a lot of death or you might have lost many people in some manner during early life. This might even happen up through your teenage years, or it might just be something you’re fearful of because of a past life trauma.
Alternatively, your Chiron will center around control. You may either try to control others in a variety of ways or give up your personal control and allow others to take charge of you.
Chiron in the 9th House
Chiron in the 9th house means that your wound can play out in one of many areas, including travel, spirituality or religion, philosophy, ethics, morals, or higher education.
This one can be a bit complicated to explain so I’m going to try and break it down a bit.
Firstly, with Chiron in the 9th house, you may have been wounded in some way because of the belief system you grew up with. You might either try extra hard to find a spiritual path to make sense of your life, or you might avoid thinking about spirituality or religion in general.
These folks are either religious (or spiritual fanatics) or they are completely agnostic. Sometimes, they are constantly having spiritual crises that they just can’t seem to figure out. They might have a need to find an external “God” that exists outside of and separately from themselves.
Alternatively, travel or other cultures were involved in the wound. Sometimes people with Chiron in the 9th house grew up traveling constantly and never had roots, never fit into other cultures, or struggled to find a culture that they did fit into. They might feel like they don’t truly belong anywhere.
Lastly, the individual with Chiron in the 9th house might become disillusioned because they fail to live up to a specific vision or potential that they imposed on themselves. I find that this “potential” is sometimes imposed by the parents, but sometimes it is just the individual’s desire to escape the wound through succeeding in a specific way.
The person with Chiron in the 9th house will usually use 9th house means to try and escape the wound (become a lifelong traveler, get immersed in academia with a fear of failure, become heavily involved in philosophy or politics, etc.).
Again, look to the sign that Chiron in the 9th house is in to determine how this wound will play out. The sign typically indicates the cause of the wound, especially with Chiron in the 9th house.
I find that the most telling indicator of someone with Chiron in the 9th house is the feeling that they are a failure. There is usually an internal mechanism that tells the person over and over that they have failed, no matter how hard they try.
Chiron in the 10th House
Chiron in the 10th house indicates that your wound is related to your career or your public image. The woundedness is played out in the areas of business, publicity, or the individual’s need for recognition, appreciation, respect, and acknowledgement.
I find that Chiron in the 10th house folks usually didn’t receive much recognition or respect in childhood, especially concerning their purpose and what they want to do with their lives.
For example, a Chiron in the 10th house child might have wanted to be an astronaut, but they were shot down by their parents for having “too large” of dreams.
Because of these lessons, the individual will either try to force it at all costs (to gain fame, notoriety, or business success) or they will feel far too nervous to even try.
Regardless of which path Chiron in the 10th house people take, there is a deep self-esteem wound that was caused when they were told they weren’t good enough to try or to succeed.
Chiron in the 11th House
Chiron in the 11th house is a wound relating to individuality and group participation. It shows up in the areas of groups, friends, or the community in general.
The person with Chiron in the 11th house will avoid expressing original ideas because they fear that they won’t be accepted or understood. They might feel enslaved by society in general or the way that groups think. They feel that they must conform “or else.”
Even though the individual might conform on the outside, they struggle to understand why the group works as it does. Their sense of individualism bleeds through and speaks to them.
Alternatively, the individual might reject society completely. They feel alienated because they think differently, so they can easily become rebellious or destructive with the intention to hurt others as they have been wounded.
If you have Chiron in the 11th house, the goal is to avoid either extreme and to instead see what you do have in common with society. You have these unique views for a reason and you were sent here to share them and to transform the earth.
How can you help by expressing your own needs and inner self in a positive and constructive way? What can you offer? Is there a group that will accept you because you bring something special to the table?
Any individual with Chiron in the 11th house is capable of contributing quite a lot of good to society. Healing comes from reconciling individual needs with those of society and expressing both in a positive and constructive way.
Ultimately, any individual with Chiron in the 11th house will learn how to be an individual within a group and avoid losing themselves.
Chiron in the 12th House
If you have Chiron in the 12th house, you may work very hard to hide your wound away. The wound might even be unconscious, but when it does come to the surface, you feel the urgent need to stuff it back down.
At the same time, you may cling to your wound with Chiron in the 12th house. These wounds often come from a past life, and it might feel like the wound is an essential part of who you are.
More than any other placement, Chiron in the 12th house can be pretty dark and scary. The wound often revolves around fear from a past life and trauma that is buried in your unconscious mind.
Chiron in the 12th house can indicate either mental illness or psychism. These traits are often ancestral; the wound itself may even be ancestral.
Alternatively, this Chiron in the 12th house placement can also have to do with an incarceration of some kind. This could be prison of the mind, body, or spirit.
So there you have it: Chiron in the houses. Questions or comments about your Chiron placement? Drop a line in the comments and I’m always happy to help!

Chiron in the astrology chart shows us our deepest wounds. Although healing this wound is a lifelong pursuit, the journey to healing the Chironic wound is a key part of our paths that shapes our personalities. Chiron in Scorpio is all about the wound of control.
Most Chiron wounds will be very obvious; these injuries aren’t something we can ignore or hide. It isn’t until we take back personal power that we can truly begin the healing process.
The Chiron in Scorpio wound is especially deep, mostly because the wound comes from a past life trauma.
If you’re just beginning, you’ll need to identify the wound and figure out when the trauma originated before you can begin to heal the wound in an empowering way. Today I’ll be exploring the Chiron in Scorpio wound and ways to find the healing path.
The Chiron In Scorpio Wound
The Chiron in Scorpio wound was caused by a past trauma or abuse. Usually, the Chironic wound relates specifically to control.
This wound is a deep trauma that you carry around without knowing exactly what it is. The Chiron in Scorpio wound creates a control problem that blocks you from developing natural trust and love in relationships.
Because of the Chiron in Scorpio wound, you only trust control instead of trusting positive intentions or authentic love. You can’t understand a world where people don’t control each other.
I find that this wound will often manifest as inner negative talk projected onto the self, the body, or onto other people. These are things that people to do try and run from the fear that the wound creates, although this is often pushed down deep.
This fear will overtake any sense of self and become an integral part of the personality until the Chiron in Scorpio wound is dealt with. Chiron in Scorpio is a very difficult wound to have, but this only makes it more important to deal with the wound in a healthy way.
How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself
The Chiron in Scorpio wound can manifest in a variety of ways, but there are a few commonalities that show up for most people.
In some sense, the Chiron in Scorpio person will have a total lack of boundaries. This is because they don’t understand healthy relationships.
The wound means that the individual either needs to control others or to be controlled. This can show up physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, or even sexually. I find that these individuals often use sex as a means of power, but control extends well outside the bedroom.
Chiron in Scorpio is the classic controlling partner, but it can also be the partner who gets controlled.
Alternatively, the individual can become paranoid, power hungry, or obsessed with death and darkness. These are all different attempts to control the outcome of something.
There is always some area of the individual’s life where they either require control or give up control. You can learn more about how this happens by looking at the house that Chiron in Scorpio sits in.
For example, if you have Chiron in the 2nd house, you’ll either control your finances and possessions with a tight fist, or you’ll feel controlled by the things you have and/or don’t have.
If you have Chiron in the 7th house, you will either exert power over anyone you’re in a relationship with, or you will enter into relationships where you give up your personal power.
I also find that it takes an extremely long time for anyone with Chiron in Scorpio to trust. Because of this, relationships aren’t easy, regardless of what house Chiron is in.
Those with Chiron in Scorpio don’t really believe in trust. They were hurt so badly in a past life that these beliefs and traumas have followed them for lifetimes. These folks can never really let down their emotional walls because of the deep fear within them.
Where Does The Chiron In Scorpio Wound Come From?
I find that the Chiron in Scorpio wound almost always comes from a deep, painful past life trauma. This trauma will be something really dark and bad.
Depending on the house and placement, it might be physical, sexual, emotional, etc. I’ve seen Chiron in Scorpio placements that indicated past life murder, rape, suicide, torture, exploitation, abandonment, destruction, death, and more. Usually, this trauma involved some sort of control.
The reason that your Chiron in Scorpio manifests in the areas of control is because you felt such a lack of control in your past life while truly terrible things were happening. Although it’s important to explore past lives in order to learn more about your Chiron, it’s also important to move forward in a healthy, positive way. You don’t want to get stuck in the trauma all over again.
How to Heal Chiron in Scorpio
Although you experienced real trauma in a past life, the goal for healing Chiron in Scorpio is to realize that the trauma is no longer happening. You developed fear responses to deal with this trauma, but these responses are not serving you now.
The way to heal is to realize that your power is within you. It’s not necessary to get or give power through other people, because no one can take away the power that is within you, no matter what happens.
I find that most “transactions” of power are just illusions. We have constructed societal power in order to create a hierarchy among humans, but none of this is true in the universal sense. We all own our energy and our souls, and no earthly creature can take those things away from us.
When those with Chiron in Scorpio feel self-empowered, they no longer give away their power or try to overpower others. They simply have no need of either because they have enough power already.
Learning to construct healthy boundaries in all areas (relationships, work, home life, etc.) is a good place to start if you want to find your own power. “Fake it until you make it” really does tend to work for the Chiron in Scorpio individual.
The goal is to eventually see relationships and sex as natural parts of life, as two humans simply relating to each other, not as a mechanism to get or give control.
Those with Chiron in Scorpio need to get out there and “get triggered” while actively working on their boundaries and healing control issues.

Chiron is the wounded healer and shows our long-term wounds that often come from a past lifetime. Chiron in Libra is the particular wound of relationships.
We tend to overcompensate in Chiron areas by becoming a bit extreme. It’s natural to try and “fix” the wound, but often I find that we chase a solution to fix our Chiron, instead of uncovering the solution inside of us.
Unlike other planets, it’s hard to ignore your Chiron. It will hit you in the face, over and over, and can make your life pretty terrible, especially if you don’t know how to work with it. The Chiron in Libra wound is especially difficult because it’s all about relationships, something we deal with almost every day.
The Chiron In Libra Wound
Chiron in Libra means that you feel like there is something missing from your life. Usually, this “something” is your soul mate.
The Chiron in Libra wound might feel like a hole inside you. You may spend time trying to fill it with things from the outside world. You might also feel as though the world is just a bit off-balance at all times.
With Chiron in Libra, you are hurt by loneliness, but you are also hurt by relationships. Whether you’re in a relationship or are alone, the wound is there. Chiron in Libra shows itself no matter how hard you try to hide it.
There can be a lot of anxiety and guilt surrounding the Chiron in Libra wound. These people typically feel inadequate socially as a child, regardless of whether or not this is apparent to others.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself
This Chiron in Libra wound can show itself in a variety of ways. Often, these people feel alone and incomplete without a relationship, but they never find the fulfillment that they’re looking for in any relationship, either.
The Chiron in Libra wound usually manifests as conflict in interpersonal relationships. It is really difficult for these folks to have relationships without triggering the wound. This can include conflicts in romantic relationships, as well as partnerships and friendships. If you have Chiron in Libra, be wary of self-neglect in relationships.
Most relationships for the Chiron in Libra person will be karmic. It is important for these folks to focus on relationships in order to heal the wound, but this spotlight must have the intention of learning and working on ways to approach relationships that are more authentic.
It’s not abnormal for the Chiron in Libra person to wear a mask in a relationship. It might be really hard for them to show their true self to their partner for fear of losing the relationship.
The terror of being alone makes it hard for a Chiron in Libra person to get out of a relationship, even if it becomes unhealthy. It’s not uncommon for these relationships to have some sort of abuse involved in them, mainly because the Chiron in Libra person is passive and malleable, so they’re really a prime target.
I find that those with Chiron in Libra tend to give far more than they receive. This is most likely due to their fear of being left alone. There are definitely “people-pleaser” tendencies with this placement; these are the classic conflict-avoidant individuals.
Alternatively, the Chiron in Libra individual can be so afraid of being alone that they refuse to engage in relationships at all. I don’t see this outcome as much, but it is certainly a possibility. These people are often able to give others relationship advice that they can’t follow themselves.
Typically, the Chiron in Libra person gets into relationships with those who show a mirror image of the qualities they can’t see in themselves. They might also give to their partners what they aren’t able to give to their inner selves.
A Chiron in Libra individual might live a double life. It’s easy for them to hide who they truly are inside if they feel that they must put on a face in order to stay in a relationship. Sometimes, these people will do this for years, even while living with a partner.
This really is the classic Romeo & Juliet placement. Chiron in Libra is all about sacrificing yourself for the partner. Often, individuals do this because they are desperately trying to heal the wound, but it doesn’t fix it.
Where Does The Chiron In Libra Wound Come From?
I find that most Chiron in Libra placements are developed in a past life. Unlike other wounds, this wound is about karmic relationships, so Chiron in Libra people will usually meet the same souls over and over until the wound is healed.
Sometimes, these Chironic beliefs are cemented by parents or through other early life experience, but the original wound almost always comes from a relationship trauma in a past life.
How to Heal Chiron in Libra
The first step to healing Chiron in Libra is to recognize that the true soul mate is within. The Chiron in Libra person is constantly looking to fill that “soul mate” void with other people, but they will only feel truly complete by connecting with the inner self.
You will find with this placement that others reflect your own needs back to you. If you see qualities in others that you feel you lack, then it’s time to try and discover those qualities within yourself instead of outsourcing.
You will need to learn how to be authentic in a relationship, without hiding any part of yourself. You probably feel fear that you might be left alone if you do reveal your true self, but this is fear that you have to process and move through. It’s okay to be afraid. The lesson with Chiron in Libra is to do it anyways!
Unconditional love for the self is something that will be helpful for you to develop. You will learn, by doing this work, that separateness and aloneness were simply illusions. I find that energy work can be especially helpful, as well as meditation and inner work.

If you’re studying your Chiron placement, you will find that Chiron shows the area of your life or personality where you’re especially sensitive and vulnerable. This probably isn’t an area that you can avoid. This particular wound is really sensitive and really obvious to you, unlike other placements (such as Saturn or Lilith). Chiron in Virgo is an especially sensitive placement.
Many people try to overcompensate in the area where Chiron sits. There is a tendency to want to “make up for” the wound so that it isn’t obvious to others.
The Chiron In Virgo Wound
With Chiron in Virgo, you feel that there is something fundamentally wrong with you. This wound relates to your self-worth.
You might feel unclean, impure, fragmented, incomplete, or bad in some way. You probably get the sense that some fundamental piece of you was made incorrectly.
Sometimes, you will try to hide the Chiron in Virgo wound from the world, but you will always feel like there’s something wrong with you and worry that others can see it.
You search for wholeness and satisfaction. To get there, those with Chiron in Virgo usually try to “fix” themselves, but it is pretty difficult for these individuals to find the true road to healing.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself
If you have Chiron in Virgo, you probably try to achieve perfection because you want to fix whatever you feel is wrong with you. You try to deal with the Chironic wound by changing things that you feel are wrong or bad about yourself.
For example, someone with Chiron in Virgo might be really meticulous about hair, clothes, and looks. They might stay up on the latest fashions and would be horrified to show up to an event dressed “wrong.”
Alternatively, someone with Chiron in Virgo might be perfectionistic about the way that they speak to others. They might study social graces, learn easy conversation lines, etc., but if they mess up even once they feel like the world has crashed around them.
I find that Chiron in Virgo can also manifest as obsessive-compulsive disorder, or alternatively as extreme messiness and disorganization. Sometimes, an individual will swing back and forth between these extremes, or will struggle to integrate.
You might be critical of others, more-so than other Chiron signs, but this is really because Chiron in Virgo creates a huge amount of self-criticism. Sometimes, criticism of others is a self-defense mechanism if you have anxiety about judgements coming your way.
Chiron in Virgo is very black and white. You probably see things as good or bad, and it can be hard for you to develop shades of grey in everyday life.
Look to the house that your Chiron sits in for more information. With Chiron in Virgo in the 4th house, for example, you will feel as though there was something fundamentally wrong with you as a child; now, you may still feel that sense of uneasiness inside whenever your inner child pokes his/her head out. But with Chiron in the 7th house, you probably feel like there is something fundamentally wrong with the way that you have relationships.
You’ll know when you figure out how your Chiron in Virgo manifests. You shouldn’t have to dig too deep to discover it, because your Chiron in something that has been present through your life and that causes continuous feelings of displeasure.
Regardless of how your Chiron in Virgo manifests, the main idea is that you try to control your life in some area. You might control the organization of your home, your relationships, your daily schedule, the way that you dress/look, or any other area. You will eventually realize that control is just a facade, for it doesn’t actually decrease the negative feelings that arise within you when your Chiron is activated. It’s simply the best coping mechanism that you’ve had.
Where Does The Chiron In Virgo Wound Come From?
I find that much of the time, people with this Chiron placement are born with some of these false beliefs about themselves. For example, you might have felt that there was something wrong with you from a very young age, but as you work your way through society and see other people’s judgments towards you, these views are only cemented.
Sometimes, the Chiron in Virgo wound is developed due to parental influences. Maybe your parents were extremely critical of you or treated you as though there was something fundamentally wrong with you. Other individuals have perfectly loving parents who are no more critical than is necessary, so this isn’t a rule.
I do find that natives with Chiron in Virgo saw their parents as critical, even if this wasn’t reality. These people are usually hyper-sensitive to slights, so they may have been crushed by the most subtle judgments projected from their parents.
Regardless of reality, I recommend that you work with the emotions that you felt and that you don’t diminish your feelings.

How to Heal Chiron in Virgo
The thing about all Chiron signs is that you can never 100% heal them. The Chiron sign you’re born with will always be with you, and this is actually good because the wound is a part of who you are.
There isn’t any “getting over” the issues that Chiron reveals. Instead of trying to get rid of the wound, I recommend working to transmit the Chiron in Virgo wound to its highest potential by recognizing vulnerabilities and embracing them.
Over time with Chiron in Virgo, you will probably come to realize that regardless of how hard you try, you never feel as thought you adequately covered up the wound. It’s always there deep inside.
The goal with Chiron in Virgo is to integrate our persons into wholeness. There is already a perfect unity that exists within you and no part of you is bad, but Chiron in Virgo makes you feel separated and fragmented.
Instead of seeing some parts of yourself as good and others as bad, the healing path is to realize that every part of you has a purpose and to fully accept all sides of yourself.
It is only the illusion that says part of you is wrong. In fact, we all have parts of our personality and soul that contradict other parts, but these parts are all necessary to be our true selves. The goal is to love ourselves just as well are, good and bad parts alike.

Chiron is the Wounded Healer and is the asteroid that shows our deepest wounds. Chiron wasn’t originally important in astrology and is a “newer” asteroid, but I find it to have huge effects on almost every person’s chart I look at.
If you want to find out more about that subconscious emotional wound that you carry around, look to Chiron.
Today I’ll be going over Chiron in Leo, which is the placement I find most often in the charts of celebrities.
The Chiron In Leo Wound
Someone with Chiron in Leo will feel that they are not recognized or noticed for their specialness. They might feel like they fade into the background.
In some cases this person may actually feel disliked, but they can also just feel ignored or unnoticed. They will feel that they are not talented enough, not noticed for their talent, or generally unremarkable.
What’s funny is that people with Chiron in Leo are often pretty talented in some way. They can have issues related to how they feel about their talent as well as ego issues surrounding other people’s adoration of them.
This is usually because although people with Chiron in Leo try to show their talent to others, they aren’t actually convinced deep down that they have any talent at all.
At its core, Chiron in Leo creates a fear of joining in without a talent or reason; in reality, the person can join in groups or life just for the sake of existing. They are special just for being themselves, but feel worthless and do not realize this.
How This Wound Will Show Itself
The Chiron in Leo wound will manifest in one of two ways.
In one case, the person with Chiron in Leo may try their hardest to be recognized, respected, or loved. They may try to get appreciation or attention and often attempt to be “famous” in some manner. They will do this to try and prove to themselves that they have no reason to feel unworthy, but that does not change the core feelings that they still have deep down.
In the second case, the person feels so unworthy of being the center of attention that they avoid the spotlight by any means possible. They will support others in this role (often children) by trying to help others gain notoriety and become successful in the spotlight.
In both cases, the person will be unusually sensitive to criticism. This insecurity can cause them to read into a situation and feel that they’ve been criticized when it isn’t true. They have a strong fear of rejection stemming from their own feelings of worthlessness.
Both types of Chiron in Leo people will also feel that they need to prove their worth through their talents or the talents of others; in either case they are always working towards proving themselves to the world. They don’t understand that they have nothing to prove.
Look at the house and aspects to see exactly how the person will feel a need to prove themselves. For example, if Chiron is in the 10th house, the person will try to prove themselves through career or public image, while Chiron in the 2nd house may mean the person attempts to feel worthy through money and possessions.
Where Does the Wound Come From?
This wound, more-so than others, usually has roots in childhood.
I typically find that a person with Chiron in Leo was stunted (in some way) from expressing themselves creatively. This person probably did not get sufficient recognition from their parents during early childhood for their ideas or talents and this left them feeling worthless.
The child may have felt unimportant, unseen, or dismissed. They just weren’t noticed, or at worst they were noticed in a bad way (such as their parents remarking on their lack of talent).
How to Heal Chiron in Leo
A person with Chiron in Leo needs to learn how to heal the inner child and accept themselves. It is the lack of self-acceptance and self-praise that causes the wound, although the person probably thinks it is the lack of acceptance from others.
The key is to recognize that this person has it within their power to realize how special they are and to find their gift to the Universe. With this placement, they have a really important place in the world and a unique gift to offer, but it is up to them to work through trauma and find it.
Inner child work may be extremely helpful if the individual finds that these issues do stem from childhood.
Famous People With Chiron in Leo:
It’s also surprising to me that Chiron in Leo shows up in so many celebrities’ birth charts. Mostly, Chiron in Leo is in the charts of people who aren’t just famous but who are trendsetters or global sensations.
Related: Pallas Astrology – How You Solve Problems
The whole issue behind Chiron in Leo is not being seen or feeling unnoticed, but I can only assume that this is the driver for these folks to work towards fame. Alternatively, they might be child stars (or born into a famous family) but feel that they aren’t seen for their true self.
Here are the most well-known celebrities with Chiron in Leo:
- Ariana Grande
- Selena Gomez
- Demi Lovato
- Miley Cyrus
- John Lennon
- Zayn Malik
- Bruce Lee
- Paul McCartney
- Mick Jagger
- Jimi Hendrix

- Cardi B
- Bernie Sanders

Chiron is the Wounded Healer, so this asteroid signifies our core wound that we develop from an early age. While Chiron can be pretty difficult, it’s also so useful to know your own Chiron and explore the wound in order to heal it.
If you have Chiron in Cancer, you have an especially difficult wound that comes from family, however keep in mind that there is always a silver lining! Those with Chiron in Cancer can end up being incredible parents, aunts and uncles, or even just extremely loving people if they’re able to work through this wound.
The Chiron In Cancer Wound
The Chiron in Cancer wound is the core belief that one are unlovable and have been abandoned.
This person is often wounded by family in some way. There is some sort of early childhood family trauma that leads to core feelings of loneliness, emotional pain, or emptiness.
This person usually does feel that love exists but may not be able to find it. They may also think that they’re just unworthy of it and have extremely low self-esteem.
Usually, this wound comes from a lack of nurture in childhood.
How This Wound Will Show Itself
This wound will show itself one of two ways.
In the first scenario, the person with Chiron in Cancer will withdraw from love. They will only pursue relationships with unattainable people (or those who are definitely not interested), which only reinforces the idea that they are unlovable.
They may fantasize about people who they can never have a successful relationship with or they may live the single life indefinitely.
In this scenario, the person might also technically enter into relationships but refuse to actually open up. They are so afraid of losing nurture (as they did in childhood) that they never try to get it in the first place. This person’s fear of loss is the main issue here, but this stems from the original wound.
Alternatively (in the second scenario), the person will go overboard nurturing others. They may smother their partners and friends and become the typical needy Cancer individual who is looking for emotional attention and validation 24/7.
The native with Chiron in Cancer has a constant, nagging feeling of emptiness; they search for ways to fill this hole up. They often over-idealize partners by putting them on a pedestal in order to distract from their own inner turmoil, but they have extremely painful breakups when these relationships inevitably fail.
When a relationship does end, the person will feel as though they have lost everything. They don’t know how to exist without the other person because they used the relationship to compensate for their own wound.
Those with Chiron in Cancer are especially vulnerable around family. This hole inside them feels extra painful around family members and they may act different to try and gain any sort of praise, attention, love, etc., when what they are really seeking is nurture and acceptance.
They will probably go to any lengths to get love from other people, especially family and intimate friends. They may pretend to be someone they’re not, self-sacrifice for others, boat, lie, or delude themselves about who the other person is. The thing that matters most to these natives is replacing the hole inside themselves with love.
Where Does the Wound Come From?
This wound almost always comes from early experiences with family. Often, this person has core issues with the mother, but the house that Chiron is in will show the initial wounding more clearly. It is also possible to have this placement due to the father or family in general.
Look to the person’s childhood and see if there is some emotional malnourishment, abandonment, or even abuse.
Regardless of if the person’s attitude towards the parent in question is marked by idealization or by contempt. If they have lost their one of their parents early on, for any reason, they are inclined towards idealization; if they were abandoned, they are inclined towards disappointment and contempt. May also swing back and forth
How to Heal Chiron in Cancer
The Chiron in Cancer person’s instinct is to avoid or bandaid the pain, but this is only a temporary fix. Instead, they will need to go through the pain.
More than any other placement, Chiron in Cancer requires therapeutic-like work to heal. If traditional therapy isn’t an option (although I do feel that a good therapist can help a native with this placement make leaps and bounds), then I recommend looking to books or YouTube videos.
You’ll want to search for material that aids in healing family issues, mother issues, codependency, working with attachment styles, and developing boundaries.
It’s hard work, but it’s incredibly worth it to heal Chiron in Cancer. Because this person has so much pain and has successful worked through it, they can be some of the most loving and caring people on the earth.
Although every Chiron placement is important, Chiron in Gemini has the tendency to really affect an individual’s schooling, career, and social self-esteem. The need to discover and heal the wound can be extremely strong because of how impactful this wound is!
If you have Chiron in Gemini, look to the house to see where the wound will show itself and look at this article in terms of that house.
The Chiron In Gemini Wound
The Chiron in Gemini wound comes from feeling unintelligent, stupid, or unable to properly communicate. This can manifest in a variety of ways, but always feels the same inside.
At their core, someone with Chiron in Gemini will feel different from others due to communication and intelligence.
This can be due to moving to a foreign country without speaking the language, a speech impediment, social anxiety, a lisp, a learning disability, not having education as a child, or the individual being told that he/she simply wasn’t intelligent. Sometimes, the person with Chiron in Gemini just can’t communicate the ideas in their head to others in a way that makes sense or sounds the same.
The Chiron in Gemini individual might also communicate in a way that’s not acceptable for the time period. For instance, they may think in emotions and pictures but be surrounded by those who think scientifically, or communicate through music instead of words.
How This Wound Will Show Itself
The Chiron in Gemini person feels as though they’re ignorant, uneducated, or stupid, and this can show in a variety of ways.
The person show this in one of two ways. They might feel that others with more education, intelligence, and better communication skills are far above them and pedestalize those individuals. They will think that they don’t fit in due to trouble with words, but will always try to live up to how they see these people.
Alternatively, the Chiron in Gemini individual might feel bitter towards those who they perceive to be more intelligent and may gossip, slander, or put down others.
Often, someone with Chiron in Gemini will try to avoid any situation where they may have to attempt to be intellectual or to communicate, especially situations that require some sort of higher education or knowledge.
I find that Chiron in Gemini, more so than other Chironic wounds, can easily lead to depression, mental illness, or substance abuse. This is by no means an absolute (I would say I’ve found this to be true 65% of the time) and will depend on the house and aspect. If Chiron is placed for this to happen, I think it’s more common in Gemini because of the erratic, dual nature of the sign.
Where Does the Wound Come From?
This wound is a bit more general because it can develop from a variety of outlets. The Chiron in Gemini person may have been actually told that they were stupid or unintelligent by parents, teachers, friends, or society as a child. Alternatively, the person was born with some sort of disability that made them feel unintelligent (a learning disability, social anxiety, a lisp, etc.) or they were thrown into a situation that caused them to believe this about themselves as they grew (e.g. moving to a foreign country as a child).
To discover more about this Chiron placement, look to the house that it’s in. Does this house give you any clues about how it manifests or where it comes from in your personal life and childhood?
How to Heal Chiron in Gemini
If you have Chiron in Gemini, what you don’t realize is that you have a different kind of intelligence that is uniquely special. Society might not regard your intelligence or communication skills as important, but in the universe, your skills are needed; you have them for a reason.
Instead of doing what you think is good based on society’s rules, you need to learn how to speak your truth using your intuition. You might have mediumistic gifts or be psychically sensitive, or have some other method of communicating with alternatives forms of life like animals, plants, spirits, extraterrestrial beings, etc.
You might also communicate better through non-verbal means of communication such as art, music, or emotions. What you’ll want to do is find and acknowledge your unique gift and use it. You were given it for a reason! What type of advanced, different form of communication do you possess? Your job is to find and use it.
Often, those with Chiron in Gemini will go on to do many activities involving speech. Some of the most famous rappers in our time have Chiron in Gemini! It is only when someone accesses these special abilities (which must be done using intuition) that they will be able to achieve such goals.
Famous People With Chiron in Gemini:
If you look at this list of names, you’ll notice that a lot of these people do have a specific issue with communication or speech, despite being famous (many of them for singing/acting). For example, Drake is well-known for being unable to write his own songs or be successful with his own songs and Megan Fox is known for her looks, not her superior acting skills.
- Prince Harry
- Lana Del Ray
- Megan Fox
- Leonardo da Vinci
- Lady Gaga
- Robert Pattinson
- Khloe Kardashian
- Avril Lavigne
- Isaac Newton
- Keira Knightley
- Shia Labeouf
- LeBron James
- Kit Harrington
The astrological influence of the asteroid Chiron is pretty huge. This is surprising to many modern students of astrology, because the discovery of Chiron is so new, but it has such a large impact on our lives that it can’t be overlooked.
I really believe that analyzing a birth chart without taking Chiron into consideration will not give you a clear picture of a person.
Chiron is a lifelong wound, something that we will come back to over and over, so it’s worth more than just a simple glance.
Chiron in Taurus is an especially interesting placement. Taurus is all about material possessions, routines, sensuality, and stability, and Chiron can show a wound having to do with any of these staples.
The Chironic wound in Taurus is something that will absolutely show up in someone’s life, and a piece of the natal chart that deserves to be addressed.
The Chiron in Taurus Wound
There are a few ways that the Chiron in Taurus wound can manifest itself. Taurus is all about values, sensuality, material possessions, and moving slowly yet consistently through life. Typically, Chiron in Taurus will manifest as an insecurity in one of these areas.
The person with Chiron in Taurus will be afraid of losing something, whether it be safety, money, possessions, abundance, or love. The typical Chiron in Taurus will go to any lengths to avoid losing their home, their routine, the people close to them, their favorite possessions, their money, etc. Even if everything seems very permanent in their life, they will always be scared of some unexpected loss.
What the specific person with the placement will be scared of losing depends on the house that Chiron falls in and the aspects associated with it. If Chiron has difficult aspects with the moon, for example, the individual may have some fear of losing emotional security or something to do with the mother (depending on where the moon is). If Chiron shows in the 11th house, the individual may be afraid of losing friends or freedom, while Chiron in the 6th house will point to a fear that daily routines will be lost.
Those with Chiron in Taurus are always searching for safety and security (in any given area) through material possessions and values, but they never feel totally secure, because material possessions just aren’t fulfilling enough.
How This Wound Will Show Itself
This deep-seated fear of loss can show itself in a few different ways. The person may try to cling to security by setting strict guidelines with themselves and others, hoarding items/values/security, or demanding things from others (whether this is physically or emotionally) in order to feel safe.
This could be the typical Taurus who avoids all risks, lives an extremely frugal lifestyle, and refuses to give. Alternatively, the person could become a little extreme while trying to live the “good life” and surrounding themselves with material comforts so that they never feel they lack anything.
Sometimes, this wound will be about how the individual appears to the world. They may want to be seen as beautiful, or smart, or important in some way, and have an intense fear of being ordinary. This is all the same wound: they are afraid of being nothing to the world, and experiencing some sort of lack due to this; they need the admiration to keep going and are afraid of having to face themselves and what they feel they lack inside. They may go to any lengths to keep those important to them around.
Like most Chironic wounds, the expression can go to either extreme (living extremely frugally or becoming a spendthrift). How the person actually expresses the wound depends on their own psychology and other factors in the chart, but it all stems from the same initial hurt inside.

Where Does the Wound Come From?
Usually, this wound is creating by experiencing an intense lack of something. This could have happened in a past life or in the present life, and could result from many different situations.
If you have your Chiron in Taurus, at some point, you were severely deprived, whether of physical, emotional, or spiritual properties. There are many ways this could have played out. You may have grown up poor, or lost your parents early, or had parents who provided the necessary things but neglected you emotionally. Look to where you most feel neglected or deprived, and you will be able to answer what created your Chiron.
Even if you didn’t experience any lack in your current life, think of what you’re subconsciously scared to lose (it might not make any sense) and see if that fits into your chart. A lot of times with Chiron, you have to go with your gut.
Sometimes someone’s Chiron is very obviously created during childhood, while other times it’s not at all obvious what caused it, but they still show the qualities of the Chiron (due to its cause in a past life).
How to Heal Chiron in Taurus
The path to healing is to realize that complete and utter security can’t be found in the material world. The individual with Chiron in Taurus is always trying to feel 100% safe through material things or other people, but this is impossible.
True security comes from trusting in the Universe. Learning about Universal Laws, enhancing your own connection with spirit and your guides, and developing your own set of values through spiritual work are what will slowly cause this person to feel secure.
In the end, the goal is to merge the physical with the spiritual and realize that we live in a world where both exist together. True abundance is something that we all already possess; we are already whole and complete, we have just forgotten this. Remembering is the first step to healing.
I often find that any kind of spiritual work helps someone with a wound in Taurus. The want and ability to believe in something greater and more important than the material world instantly begins the healing process,
Famous People With Chiron in Taurus + Analysis:
Surprisingly, Chiron in Taurus is a popular natal placement for celebrities. Some of my favorite actors and singers have Chiron in Taurus!
One key I’ve noticed is that most of these celebrities are concerned with amassing material possessions, being seen as someone beautiful and important in the world, and feeling secure. Some of them had traumatic childhoods that clearly caused this wound, while others probably brought it from a past life.
You will notice that some of these celebrities seem to have a fear of losing possessions, money, or control over their lives, while others probably have a fear of losing people or staples in their lives. Of course, they will all manifest differently depending on the exact placement.

Chiron, also known as the Wounded Healer, is an extremely underrated and important asteroid in astrology. If you’re just beginning your journey with asteroids, I recommend starting with Chiron! Today, I’m diving right into Chiron in Aries.
We all have an inner wound that can be represented by our Chiron. Even though this wound can feel really painful, it can be transformed and used for good. We always have our Chiron signs for a good reason.
This transformation process is really important, otherwise we might feel that wound deep down for our whole lives without ever addressing it. No one feels good living with the negative effects Chiron forever!
Chiron is probably that thing that you just can’t ignore. Even though it’s really painful, the wound pops up over and over. This is why it’s so important to just deal with it, as painful as that might be at first.
The Chiron in Aries Wound
The Chiron wound can come from a lot of different types of trauma, but the outcome is always similar in any specific sign. In Aries, the Chiron wound is all about a core feeling of worthlessness.
This is supposedly one of the most difficult yet important Chiron placements, although I tend to find that all Chiron placements are really painful. The reason that Aries can be so difficult is because it’s directly related to who you are as a person.
If you think of the typical Aries, you’ll notice that they are generally sure of themselves, confident, bold, and daring, which sometimes can even cause problems for them if these qualities become too extreme. Chiron in Aries is the exact opposite of the normal Aries.
Those with the placement of Chiron in Aries will often feel that they lack some sort of core self or that something is somehow wrong with them. They won’t feel sure of themselves or appear confident at all.
They may feel that they’re unfocused, uncentered, or that they just generally don’t belong. They may see everyone else in life moving along with a purpose but feel that they weren’t given one.
Above all, people with Chiron in Aries may feel that they don’t have the right to exist or that they are somehow a mistake.
The shame from this wound may make it very difficult to actually acknowledge it and begin to heal it, but this wound can also be extremely transformative as it heals.
After all, we’re all here for a reason, and the person with Chiron in Aries always has a very important purpose in the world!
How This Wound Will Show Itself
There are two different ways that the Chiron in Aries wound can show itself. These methods of showcasing the wound are exact opposites, but they all stem from the same issue of not having a purpose or a sense of self that feels like it’s worth something.
In the first scenario, the person may seek to please others and be intensely influenced by others. They’re more like Libran people in nature, and will go out of their way (to the extreme detriment of themselves) to make others happy and get even the smallest bit of praise.
These Chiron in Aries folks aren’t feeding on this praise like a Leo would be, but instead need it to keep themselves together and to assure themselves that they have some type of purpose on earth. They probably feel that if they can at least make other people happy then they have some worth.
The individual will basically dedicate themselves to making others happy, but it will be at the expense of themselves.
They will also struggle when in a group and different people want different things from them. They will choose the person who can offer the biggest reward (the person who’s praise means the most) and can be unintentionally cliquey because of this.
Generally, these people try to avoid taking any type of stand or getting involved in conflict or confrontation. They’ll usually choose careers or lifestyle paths where little opinion is required of them.
They might also try to rescue others who lack self-worth; they’re pretty good at recognizing these same character traits in others.
This person is simply trying to prove that they can fit in with the crowd and therefore are not wrong or a mistake. The first step is for this individual to realize that trying to please others doesn’t bring them any lasting satisfaction, and that they were never a mistake in the first place, even if they may feel wrong inside.
These Chiron in Aries folks have a really hard time standing up for themselves, even when they know they should. The fear of “reopening” the wound keeps them from taking a stand.
They can also self-sabotage at times. They might almost intentionally (even though it feels unintentional to them) sabotage a relationship, a career, or anything else. They’re basically proving to themselves that they don’t have any worth, but this is because of the wound: this is just a false belief.
These Chiron in Aries folks almost feel like they don’t have a right to ask for what they need or even a right to exist. They feel like their very being is wrong.
Most people don’t recognize the Chiron in Aries placement when the wound expresses itself this way because these qualities are all opposite from typical Aries qualities. This individual is suppressing all Aries qualities in order to try and find a way to make the wound less painful.
I do find that people with Chiron in Aries might have a lot of underlying rage. This is typically the person who appears passive, sweet, and malleable, but underneath they’re just seething with frustration and anger that they have to hide.
Alternatively, the person might turn aggressive, showy, inflexible, and even selfish. This individual still feels just as unworthy because of the Chiron in Aries wound, but they have the opposite reaction: they focus completely on themselves to try and “fix” the wound.
These Chiron in Aries people also feel like their very existence is wrong or that something is wrong with their soul, so they try to get attention to prove to themselves that it isn’t true. The problem is that they get all the wrong types of attention, so they never really prove anything to themselves.
They may be extremely sensitive to any putdown (whether or not the other person really intended to judge them) and can react extremely aggressively. These folks can have a lot of mood swings.
This is the guy in the bar who flips out at the smallest slight or the person who will never speak to you again after an insignificant fight. While we see this as difficult when we encounter it in another person, what’s really hard is the emotions that the other is experiencing.
Any small slight makes Chiron in Aries feel incredibly useless and will remind them of how deep down they will always lack a true self and a purpose. In order to try to make themselves feel better, they will snap, but it doesn’t fix the true issue.
The reason that the person will react this way is in an attempt to prove their uniqueness and worthiness to exist, but even if they can prove it through an interaction, it doesn’t convince them on the inside.
This wound can manifest in two completely separate ways, but the point is that the Chiron in Aries person is always trying to prove to themselves that they are worth it and should exist. Unfortunately, neither method convinces them that it’s true.
Lastly, because Aries can be so physical and extreme, this wound will sometimes manifest as extreme addictions to things (alcohol, drugs, working out, extreme sports, etc.).
The Aries in Chiron person can be pretty hardcore when they’re trying to “get rid of” the bad feelings that come with the wound, but how exactly this happens will depend on the house and aspects to Chiron.
Where Does the Wound Come From?
If you have a Chiron in Aries wound, this means that in the past (whether in a past life or childhood) your individuality was stifled. During a series of interactions, you were taught that your individual beliefs, needs, wants, etc. were bad, and that it was wrong to have them.
You basically learned that individuality is bad and that there’s something wrong with your beliefs specifically. You learned that you didn’t have the right to be yourself unapologetically.
I find that this wound can often show up after someone has had a lot of group interactions. For example, maybe you were part of a big family and had to go along with all family decisions, or you were raised at a school with militant rules and you didn’t have a say over anything.
Sometimes, this Chiron in Aries wound has to do with the parents. I find that some parents made the child feel as thought he/she had unique qualities that were bad, qualities that had to be stifled.
This happened a lot in time periods when children had to be seen and not heard or when gender roles were strictly enforced.
Sometimes Chiron in Aries comes from childhood, sometimes it shows up from a past life, and sometimes it’s a combination of both.
How to Heal Chiron in Aries
None of us are meant to be doormats, but we’re also not meant to attack others. Neither of these two reactions will make the Chiron in Aries individual feel good for the long haul or fix the struggle going on inside of them.
The difficulty with healing these wounds is that the Chiron in Aries person is very resilient and tends to avoid talking about pain. They would rather keep forging forward, but what Chiron in Aries needs to realize is that sometimes, backwards is forwards.
The first step is for the Chiron in Aries person to confront the fact that he/she does not feel a sense of self. The person may feel that there’s something wrong with him, or that something about her is useless or destructive. This is really painful, but it has to be faced on to work through this wound.
They then need to realize that a false belief is the problem. They have some belief about themselves that isn’t true, because they absolutely do deserve to be here and are here for a reason.
Chiron in Aries needs to make an impact on the world, but they have to find their unique purpose. It most likely will not be something that easily blends in with the crowd, but it will be extremely important to the growth of mankind.
Note that while working on Chiron’s wounds, you may feel a good deal of suppressed anger, especially in a fire sign such as Aries. This is completely normal – do you best to express it in a non-destructive, healthy way, such as journaling, seeing a therapist, etc.
Chiron’s wounds will never completely heal, but they can be addressed and transmuted to create something wonderful. If you have the Chiron in Aries placement, you will learn that it is through your wounds (and the process of dealing with them) that you will find your unique purpose and start to feel like you exist for a specific reason.
Chiron in Aries will often become quite the healer (whether physically, mentally, emotionally, or metaphorically) because they’re able to recognize when others feel a lack of self-worth, due to having experienced it themselves. They can be extremely kind and caring towards others once they can deal with their own pain instead of completely identifying with it.
If you’re feeling lost about where to begin, try the following exercise.
Chiron in Aries Exercise
- Make a list of qualities you consider to be positive and a list of qualities you consider to be negative. If you’re having trouble, Google personality traits or positive and negative qualities and use that as a starting point.
- Put a check mark next to the qualities you believe you possess. Put a circle next to the qualities you would like to develop.
- Observe yourself displaying both the positive and negative qualities over the next few weeks. Notice especially when you display a positive quality, and when you bring value to an interaction with someone or something else.
