Chiron - Where Is Your Wound?
Yes, I think it's possible that for some people the inverse happens.
Using my previous Chiron in Aries example again;
n.Chiron in Aries (Healer) and the opposition being Chiron in Libra (Wound).
For example: a woman I know with n.Chiron in Aries 5th (Healer), which would imply that Chiron in Libra in 11th (Wound). She was deeply hurt by a relationship that unexpectedly with no explanation terminated and she thought she would never find love ever again. She became a spinster for more than a decade, and thought this was her life. Her path to healing was through finding creative activities that she could pursue and in the process of that she not only fell in love with herself, but she met someone who understood her wound because he had a similar wound.
I mentioned before that I truly don't believe the Chiron Axis (as I have coined it) can be viewed as static or singular.
Beautiful story. Few Chiron stories have storybook happy endings. This one makes me happy.
Ii might quote you on Chiron axis.
Really interesting idea. I have Chiron in Cancer in my 2nd house opposite Neptune in Capricorn in my 8th house - exact to the degree.
To continue on my hypothesis of the Chiron Axis.
I looked at stories of those who've been through their Chiron Return and I surmised that ...
The Chiron Return (at age ~49-51) may not only be about a life turning point, as this implies you move from one to the other. Rather it is also a profound time of Chiron Axis balancing.
For those who, before they reach their Chiron Return, dabble in the balancing act, the actual return itself becomes less dramatic or traumatic. As it may be a time of great validation, acknowledgement and acceptance that; if it were not for my wound(s), I would not be who I am today. The wounds that were once seen as a curse can now be viewed in a different light, sanative.
Balancing requires taking some level of risk, and also letting go of what anchors you. We become less stable, and fearful. Since the Chiron Return is also a turning point, there's often movement, a shift of some sort either physically, emotionally or both. This can create an enormous amount of uncertainty/imbalance and we begin to question ourselves: how can I let go, balance without an anchor and move at the same time in a direction I am unsure of?!
The Chiron Return paradox of how to balance the imbalance of the Chiron Axis of being both wounded yet healed.
Thanks for elaborating. Kind of sounds like Saturn Return. Easy if you have done the work.
What do you have to say about Chiron wound on 6th/12th axis?
The Virgo/Pisces Axis, is perhaps one of the more challenging axis to recognize the wound or path to healing as either sign/houses maybe deeply ingrained in the subconscious (Pisces). But also, sometimes the very practical and simple things like self service and taking care of one's health (Virgo) can be very healing. Illness is often a manifestation of a blockage within the spirit/soul. For example when a person is critical of self or others, it can suppresses the intuitive knowing (12th) as the rational (6th) is more favored which can lead to stress related or other diseases.
Another example would be balancing the complex challenges of mental health, addictions etc., with the mundane necessities of day to day life.
If only the consciousness could see it got wounded by striving for perfection in an imperfect world with a subconsciousness that was already perfect!
How can the subconsciousness find existence in an imperfect world without attempting to consciously perfect what is imperfect!
