Chiron Return: A Most Meaningful Rite of Passage

How many “once in a lifetime” opportunities do we encounter in our lives? And how many of them do we let slip by, leaving us with the question, “What if?” How many of them do we grab and make the most out of, knowing it won’t ever come our way again?

Such opportunity presented itself to me very recently.

Two weeks ago, I became aware of a major astrological phase that I’m going through, Chiron Return, which truly happens only once in anyone’s lifetime. Well, with most people at least. Unless one lives up to 100 years. I know, some do but very few.

What or who is Chiron? What does Chiron represent and symbolize?

Chiron is symbolized by the “wounded healer”. It represents our deepest wound, and our efforts to heal the wound. Chiron in our natal charts points to where we have healing powers as the result of our own deep spiritual wounds. (Source:  www.cafesastrology.com)

Astrologer Wendy Guy describes Chiron as representing “the wounds we carry on all levels – physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological, etc.” In her article, Chiron in Pisces:  Surrendering to the Wounded Healer, Wendy writes,

 “Chiron symbolizes our experience of pain, alienation and woundedness, and is therefore connected to suffering in one form or another. In mythology, the centaur Chiron sustained a wound that never healed and he was said to have suffered unceasingly from it. And yet, it was this suffering that drove him to search for relief, and that search brought him the knowledge, wisdom and experience that expanded his knowledge about healing. This enabled him to counsel, teach and heal others, earning himself the label of the Wounded Healer.  (Source: www.evolvingdoor.ca)

What is so significant about Chiron Return?

We experience our Chiron Return when we reach the age of 50, or thereabouts, 49 to 51. (I am turning 51 in May.) And it is a most significant phase to go through, with a lot of transformation opportunities being presented. A most meaningful rite of passage indeed.

My natal chart: Chiron is in my fourth house, the house associated with our roots and origins, home base, family in general, father image and relationship to the real father. Chiron is in the sign of Pisces, and conjunct Jupiter.

My natal chart: Chiron is in my fourth house, the house associated with our roots and origins, home base, family in general, father image and relationship to the real father. Chiron is in the sign of Pisces, conjunct Jupiter, opposite Pluto, trine Neptune.

The phase of Chiron Return is when Chiron goes back to the same house and planet where it was when we were born.  It “returns” to its original placement in our astrological natal chart.

Wendy points out,

 “Chiron return brings you back to that deep wound and challenges you to take a closer look at it. There will be ways you have worked on healing your problems that have helped and other ways that haven’t worked so well. It’s common to come to the realization that some aspects of that woundedness will probably never be completely wiped away – and that’s okay. It doesn’t mean you’ve failed. It doesn’t mean life can’t be fulfilling and joyful and good.” (Source: www.evolvingdoor.ca)

And as the article Chiron Pisces Scar Tissue points out,

“Chiron Return is a marker of a time where we may find resolution and acceptance and learn to make peace with our wound.” (Source: www.newmoonastrologyreadings.com)

Ever since I learned about my Chiron Return, I spent a lot of time researching about it.  I’ve been integrating what I’m learning with what I’ve been experiencing.  There was a strong force pulling me, guiding me, leading me to want to find the light at the end of the tunnel. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

It’s almost like an obsession.  Like there’s this seemingly insatiable thirst in me that was awakened to find the answers.  And the knowing that I AM going to find them, and what I will find out is beyond me.

And now that I’m writing this, I already have, not only a strong feeling, but a knowing that this is going to be another series of posts again.

Who knows what messages I will end up unearthing…I don’t know what other insights will come to me as I continue making sense of all the information that I’m gathering, and all my discoveries, thus far.  Who knows which of those reflections and realizations I’ll end up sharing and posting.

But this much I know, and this much I will share.

What I’m learning about Chiron and Chiron Return is surely helping me make sense of a lot of the events in my life — those that happened in the past two to three years, and which timed with the movement of Chiron into the sign of Pisces in April 2010, as well as all my experiences in the past 50 years of my life, whether major or seemingly uneventful. (Nothing ever is. Every moment is serving a purpose and is being woven into a masterful piece of tapestry that is Life.)

What I also know for sure is this — how I deal with and make use of the energies of this oh-so-significant phase of my Chiron Return is the golden thread that’s stringing all the gems in each and every chapter of my 50 year life story, creating a most exquisite bejewelled crown, which I will wear, ever so proudly, as I look forward to and head for the beginning of the rest of my life.

In her article “The Chiron Return”, astrologer and Chiron expert Zane B. Stein and author of “Essence and Application:  A View from Chiron,” sums it up quite fittingly:

“There IS a feeling of destiny and purpose for many at this time, and a time of major decisions. And what happens at the return DOES set the course for entire rest of one’s life.” (Source: www.zanestein.com)

Thanks to my increased awareness and knowledge of Chiron, the Wounded Healer, I am being reminded that we all are “wounded healers.” That we all have the Inner Chiron. That learning how to tap into its archetypal energies will prove to be another invaluable tool which we can include in our healing and ascension tool kit.

To those who are past their Chiron Return, I’d love to hear about your experiences. Perhaps you may want to share your insights and some tips and recommendations?

To those who aren’t there yet, I don’t know if it’s anything to be overly concerned about. Or to even plan or prepare for.  After all, aren’t we all where we need to be? Don’t we all need to live each day and each moment fully and purposefully, trusting and believing that everything is divinely unfolding?

And to my fellow “Chiron Returnees,” please join me in this journey and discovery. Here’s to the beginning of the rest of our lives as we live our story and write our history! 🙂

Bring ‘em on Chiron! 🙂

    Wonderful post oozing with insight and innate remembering.

    Just moving towards the latter end of my own Chiron return.

    Therein I didn’t know how easy it will be for I had no concept of how hard it before I commence my journey. However and now I’m nearing the completion of this cycle nothing will ever be the same again.

    In respect of this post and the blog that nutures it, I honor your wisdom and all that you are as work with your inner wisdom on your own Chiron return journey. Sincere regards, Barry

    • Thank you Barry for your kind words. I am really thankful that I’ve become aware of this phase just as I am going through it. Unlike with all my previous major transits when I’ve learned about them when they were over. And whatever I’ve learned in hindsight, I’m now applying during my Chiron Return, which is, simply go with the experience instead of resisting it, allow the energies to flow and use them to guide me and lead me to the next appropriate step. Ahhh…to be in the field of the unknown! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Much appreciated and much blessings, Namaste…♥♥♥Nadine Marie♥♥♥

  3. I was so happy to see your blogpost. My Chiron return happens next week around April 10th. I’ve been researching it just like you. Things are shifting inside me in the most graceful way. I feel like I’m getting a second chance and I need to take advantage of this time. It is indeed an honor. I’m glad to see you are also taking this time and treating it with respect and preciousness. Chiron is fairly prominent in my chart and this return is setting off a major Yod of mine. I can’t describe how important this is to me and I just wanted to share with everyone that it’s been wonderful although a little scary but wonderful insights occurring everyday. May you have a blessed Chiron return and keep writing. I appreciate it.

    • Melissa, fellow centaur and Chiron Returnee! It was a delight reading your comments, thank you! 🙂 It is an honor indeed, thank you for saying that. And I most certainly am holding this phase with much respect. I believe that it is a wonderful experience for us because of the extensive inner work that we’ve done. And it’s now a matter of taking it to another level and deepening further the work that we’ve done on ourselves. Daily insights most definitely Melissa. My notes are all over and I can’t even tell you how much journaling I’ve done. I have many drafts of blog posts on file. Before I can even finish one draft, another insight comes to me and I start composing another post… 🙂 I will eventually and soon get to finally posting my articles. Your comments may have been just the slight push I needed and Chiron sent you to me ;-). Thanks again Melissa for stopping by and leaving your thoughts. Stay connected….Much Blessings, Namaste and many happy Chiron Returns!!! 🙂 ♥♥♥Nadine Marie♥♥♥

    I’ve just entered my Chiron return in Pisces in the 4th and Im feeling really helpless and hopeless having just gone through a heck of a mercury retrograde in 8th experience in Cancer….loss, abandonement all those issues making me feel depressed, anxious, unconfident……not sure whether to surrender or move to action…completely fearful

    • Like I said in my earlier comment that I had my Chiron return April 10th. Since that time I chose surrender mode as I didn’t have enough physical energy to do much of anything except basic survival requirements. I too felt fear gripping my being more than ever. At the same time all this icky stuff was being dredged up my connection to the sacred became stronger when I wasn’t in fear mode. So the good was very good and the bad was very bad.
      Then a few weeks ago I had a complete turnaround. I quit drinking alcohol. And it made all the sense in the world. The key to my truth was getting drowned by drinking. I drank wine often as I live in California but as I age I notice I don’t metabolize it as well. It became very clear that my health was being compromised and wine was getting in the way of my path. It was the best thing I ever did. I feel great and thank Chiron for showing me where I needed to heal.
      I’m sure there’s more to learn and more undoing but this remarkable insight has helped me immensely. Chiron retrograded and is coming back over my Chiron on a few weeks all in the 6th house of health. This will last for another 7 months or so. Let’s keep eachother posted on this incredible transitional transit. Best to you.

    I just became aware of Chiron Return. I was 50 in April. My roommate and best friend died of cancer in April. Both of my parents died of cancer when I was 12 and 25 and I was not in a position to help – the first time it was hidden from me, the second it was more sudden. I have a lot of regret and guilty feelings on that front. This time for about 8 months I was able to help. In some ways I was really present and other ways just overwhelmed. I also felt very protective of him. I’d like to say I healed a lot of wounds but it does not feel that way. I am still grieving in bits. I was hoping to spread his ashes by Samhain, but it is not coming together. Being aware of this cycle now, I am hoping I can approach this with a new perspective that will help to guide me through this teaching.
    I thank you so much for you post!!! and would welcome suggestions for any other resources you may recommend.

    I too just became aware of my Chiron return. I have felt completely misunderstood with no one for support. This year, my 50th year [birthday Pisces March 1963], my teenage son has been in / out of hospital with schizophrenia. I quit work to care for him which unknowingly has exposed me to ridicule from my husband’s family. They think I am self centred to make my husband [he’s 71 years old] be the bread winner while I do nothing. My husband has jumped on the band wagon to verbally bash me rather than tell his family to get stuffed. He has no balls – very Libra, agrees with whoever yells the loudest. I was struggling with work when I left to care for my son – depression, burden of doing it all on my own. I’m hoping now that I figured out it’s Chiron that I can make sense of this all. I have Chiron conjunct my Pisces Sun in the 9th, sextiles my Cancer Moon & Ascendant conjunct in the 12th, sextiles my Scorpio Neptune in the 5th and opposite my Virgo Uranus & Pluto which are conjunct in the 3rd. Feeling hit on all fronts as all the planets in my kite are involved in this square. Wish me clarity and strength.

  27. A wonderful article on Chiron and the return, Nadine. Thanks for sharing. We’re pretty close in birth dates, so share some of those placements … Chiron and Jupiter conjunct, opposite Pluto (and for me, Uranus), Saturn in Aquarius, etc. It’s a really powerful time.

    For us … in that 8-9ish degree (Chiron in Pisces) zone, we also had an extended Chiron Return due to the retrograde, so Chiron ‘returned’ to our degree three times, and then came into close conjunction a 4th time in the most recent retrograde. That’s an intensive Wounded Healer initiation and activation (some people get one)!

    In the years just before, there may be a sense of unraveling the yarn-ball, if you will, and seeing the patterns planted in early years, then spiraling all the way back to the original wound around the actual Chiron Return. In the time following, it’s integrating that gives the Wounded Healer wisdom to be shared with others, depending on our purpose-dharma.

    Pretty wild! So wonderful that you shared from your experience here … may it be a blessing to many who find their way to it, particularly in these times.

    Blessings,
    Jamie

    I turned 50 on Jun 10 this yr and just searched “major astrology at age 50″ to learn about my chiron return! My goodness, makes sense. I have had a very strong inner urge to make major change in my life for the past 12mths and it has come to an inner crunch. I cannot NOT act. I am currently married but have had to be truthful and let my partner know that I need to go now. I know that it is time to sell my house, move interstate and start a new brave life. Sounds drastic but I have been depressed and ‘dampened within” for most of my 7yrs of marriage. Society holds it up as our goal but I am my best when I am free to fully be me. My Chiron is in Pisces 5th House: square Sun conjunct Moon in Gemini 8th House; opposite Pluto conjunct Uranus in Leo 11th House. I am excited and scared and I have to let go of the guilt I feel for my partner in being truthful to me.

    • It takes a lot of courage, trust and faith to be true to ourselves. When I have my moments of doubts and I feel wobbly on my feet — and guilty — I tell myself, I owe no one any explanation. At the end of the day and at the end of it all, it is between me and my God (whoever She/He/It is to me and with whatever name I call Her/Him/It).

      Exciting and scary — most certainly! That and more. It does pay to be true to who we are. Changes and transitions are not for the faint of heart but they’re the only way to grow and evolve. And the energies of our Chiron Return phase are the most potent in assisting us to make the necessary changes. Otherwise, when we ignore them, we will only find ourselves spending the second half of our lives bitter and resentful, leaving us no room except to regret, causing and bringing misery to those around us. I’ve encountered people like that, and that’s not how I envision myself. I’m quite sure the same goes for you.

      You are well on your path, albeit not many have chosen. But I’m realizing, thanks largely to this post and others that I’ve written on the same topic, there are in fact quite a number of us going through this most pivotal phase. And it certainly is most comforting to know that we’re not alone in our journey, and there are fellow empowered Chiron Returnees! There are also those who have come before us from whom we can learn a thing or two.

      May your path be illuminated! Thank you again for stopping by and taking the time to share your reflections and experiences!

  30. I am 49 and Chiron is almost exactly conjunct my natal Chiron in Pisces 2nd house, which is also conjunct my Saturn R in Pisces, opposite my uranus/pluto/balsamic moon conjunction in 8th house Virgo. I feel that I have already released much of my wounding in this area ( it doesn’t bother me anymore not having much $, as I know the true value of myself, with has nothing to do with ‘externals’, thus I see my chiron return as form of transformation; which is giving me the focus ( I also have Saturn transiting my native Mars, Neptune, Venus conjunction in 10th house Scorpio and transiting Neptune conjunct my Saturn/Chiron) to create a wonderful epic fantasy novel, in which the main character is a shape-shifter, who can transform into a horse ( how’s that for chironic! LOL) which will benefit many :). I have always been called to a ‘higher purpose’, and no matter how much I bang my head against a brick wall, trying to get anyone to employ me, or pay me for what I do, it just won’t happen conventionally, as I have a larger calling, a selfless one, one in which I am called upon the serve, evoke beauty, heal and enlighten. Maybe, when the book is finally published I will receive recompense for all my efforts! Whatever way the cookie crumbles, I am grateful for my life and my abundant creativity, and I accept life with its thorns and roses, c’est la vie! Keep smiling, do the best you can, as that is all anyone can do, blessings to you, Bridget x 🙂 .

  35. Just came across your post and am in the throes of depression and self pity. I’ve had 3 jobs since 2010 and at my latest job I fell into a pen pal/email relationship with my current customer. Of course I was smitten and yes it is entirely one sided. Then a few weeks into this relationship he reminded me of my ex-husband who died 3 yrs after the divorce. This September it would have been 26 yrs married, however we divorced 13 yrs ago. When I was dating my ex-husband I was obsessed with him (Venus in Scorpio). I’ve tried to stop interacting with my customer, however he is my customer and the only way out is to find another job, but I have no energy to do this. I’ve tried numerous things to forget this man and my ex-husband and yet I am constantly reminded of both men. I have lost my desire to drink and have been trying to find anything to divert my attention, like working out in the gym. Now I believe why nothing is working & why I am crying so much. Chiron return will be exact in August 2015 (opposite Uranus/Pluto in Virgo 11th H), but the pain is pretty great right now. This article and also all the comments have given me some comfort. I am scared of getting old (I never thought about it until I met this customer who is 11 yrs younger than me), sad about being alone, (I LOVED it before), confused about romance (Chrion in my 5th H), of course thinking about the fact that I never had children. The discomfort is great and I want to run away from it and yet I can’t, the only thing I can do is take it one moment at a time. Thank you for this article.

    Turned 50 in March of this year and it has been very painful and topsy turvy, many days I just want to die. I have been feeling helpless, hopeless, panicky, angry, shameful, etc. All my worst qualities in my face making this a very difficult transition. Struggling to find enough will to live just to get through each day. Had I known life would be so difficult at this time I would have done things very differently 20-30 years ago. VERY differently. I would have taken SO much better care of myself. But I didn’t know, and the medical establishment had no idea what to do with me back then either…..so here I am, suffering big time. Chiron in Pisces. But I am working w/ a therapist, a healer, many other practitioners and somehow I will get through..not sure if the body will make it but it’s good to read about others who had a wollup of a time when Chiron hit. According to my chart I’ve to til Jan 31 before it’s over. How on earth will I survive that long? It feels like my heart is splitting and cracking…maybe it is cracking open though…we’ll see!

    I was looking up information on this transit when I stumbled onto this site and so glad I did! My year since my birthday this March 7th has been a rollercoaster ride that sometimes leaves me drained and so misunderstood. My Chiron is in the 3rd house which means my whole life how I relate to siblings,parents, and my husband(s), will require understanding and healing within myself. Relationships of any kind can be used to learn more about myself, and healing can take place if I compromise and try to see things from another’s perspective. I have recently reached out to my brother whom for the past 10 years has been very strained and we haven’t hardly spoken in most of those years, barely saying hi to one another at family functions. I realized it doesn’t matter who is right or wrong, what matters is that I missed my brother in my life, and one of us , me, had the power to heal that wound by reaching out first. I did and we had such a wonderful day together and we both talked and laughed together and I realized it was my own stinking thinking that sabatoged our relationship. The relationship I ha e with my father is a work in progress, because I’ve always been an obedient daughter, and never wanted to disappoint him, so I’m finding my voice and speaking up and saying what’s in my heart rather than saying nothing and stewing about it later. Now, the relationship with my husband of 15 years is coming to what I fear will be the end. Only because I’m not willing to keep my mouth shut and I speak up and he doesn’t like the new me, so well. In fact, as of this moment, he is gone, somewhere after a very big altercation last night because I spoke up and wasn’t willing to bite my tongue anymore to avoid a confrontation, so he left me. But, I’m okay with it, not broken up, just trying to see the lesson in it. (I’ll keep you posted) ….so that is my Chiron returning home, with all the lessons and wounds to heal, and returning “home”, in a sense to all those childhood things i had no control over and lacked the years of schooling it took to deal with all the heartbreak, and the hindsight to be able to look back and say ,” hey, this is my life ya know! And this is how I want to live it!” I’ve found I have a voice and my own truths that I want to fulfill because I don’t want to look back later and wish I had said what I wanted to say.

And, of course, my career and home life, and the “base of my existence” and “who I am in the world” have been through major swings and reversals and no stability – at least not in the external world. I have a half million dollars in student loan debt, no assets, no career stability or even real direction, no credit, live in a small studio apartment, move frequently and am sometimes homeless, and have found it very difficult to find a good partner for romantic relationship – ever. I am a licensed naturopathic physician but have a love/hate relationship with it as I have difficulty establishing boundaries and making money there, like would be expected with a Pisces/Chiron/Saturn 10th house. I am told that I am quite a good healer – often by other healers (I am a “healer’s healer”, which is not surprising with my Chiron placement…)… but I have felt drained by it and like I just wish that I could completely escape from any compulsion to ever “help anyone heal” – or “help” anyone with anything else, ever again. I am just now entering my Chiron return and, as expected, feeling intense energy around career issues. I am also stuck in bed with a major back injury – well, at least my body is in-line with my “personal support” issues, lol…. But, I have to say that, in recent years, listening to Abraham Hicks and starting to really understand how I create my reality has been very helpful to me. I don’t want to keep feeling “self sacrificial” in my career area, and yet, with this new moon today triggering my Chiron return, I am starting to feel for the first time how I could embrace a lifestyle as a healer that is good for me as well as for others – not self-sacrificial in a one-sided fashion, but of real “service” – in a way that I serve “myself” as well as “others” instead of leaving myself out of the benefit side of that equation. So, for me, in spite of the “external tragedies”, the internal work that I have done over all this years is now bearing fruit in my new-found abilities to see a new way forward and integrate all the seemingly warring parts of myself into a beautiful, cohesive, and even profitable/abundant whole. I can now see how the events of my life could seem tragic and insurmountable to others, and yet the feeling of the “internal home” – the stability at the base, at the core of my soul, that I have built because I could not build it externally – I now see how this has been a great gift to myself and makes me impervious to external “disaster”. I have nothing that can be taken from me – everything to gain and nothing to lose. And, interestingly, “nothing to lose”, is quite a “power” position 🙂

    How can I find out the planetary alignments of my Chiron Return? Is there a certain good software I can buy that will show me my personal transits as they happen?

    I just turned 50 and still dealing with old lessons as it’s retrograde in Pisces in my 5th house for me and I’m tired. I’m totally ready to shift. Being a Scorpio Rising with a lot of water in my chart has been trying and I’m ready to burst like the Pheonix from the flames and not get abused or taken advantage of ever again. I’m done with that lesson! Thanks for your wisdom. I love what you said about the crown of your experiences and wisdom through this. I feel that ending up on my head as well.

    Wondering if you also became really sensitive to energies in people around this time in a different way? I’ve always been empathic and I’m finally just trying to go where the positive energy is and stay away from what keeps making me uncomfortable that I don’t need to learn from anymore.

    • Hello Cat!

      I ordered my Chiron Return Report from Martin Lass. © 2005 Martin Lass & “Dancing with the Stars Astrology”
      Email: martin@dancingwiththestarsastrology.com
      Website: http://www.dancingwiththestarsastrology.com
      You can order it on-line and get the report in 24 to 48 hours. Very helpful report! And yes, it includes transits.

      As to heightened sensitivity, your comment/question got me thinking. Hmmm….I hadn’t equated my sensitivity to my Chiron Return, but now that you mentioned it….my short response is yes, I became really quite sensitive to energies! I’ll either type up another response where I’ll expound on this or write a separate post altogether. Meantime, I wanted to quickly get the info/my response to you.

      Thanks for visiting and sharing your experiences. Much appreciated!

      Bright Blessings to you Cat! ❤ ⭐ 🙂

    Hello Nadine! I see it has been a few years since you originally wrote this piece, but I’m really glad to find it and your wisdom! I study Human Design and saw that I could actually see my energies chart during my Chiron Return. I’m not really sure how to read it, but have been taking a stab at it and looking back at the time of my return which was March 16, 2012 at age 49 years and five months. This was a very intense time in my life and I really began questioning the Universe and God about where I lost my power. I took some long walks with myself and my shadows and recalled memories from my childhood that showed me why I behave as I do as an adult human presently. I was able to put those to rest or really learn to dance with my shadows so to speak. But more than that I think what I am looking to express is that even though I learned of my Chiron’s return after the fact I am seeing that the heat was really turned up for me at that time and my lessons were truly accelerated. I have not come to the full conclusion as to the results of the lessons but I do know that I have learned to trust so much more in the flow of abundance, that I have decided that as it turns out that I do actually matter and it is okay to what is best for me. I have learned that the worst decisions of my life have been when I relied on the advice of others instead of what my own body/gut was telling me because I didn’t trust myself enough. Through this I have learned to read soul contract’s based on one’s birth name and to read Human Design charts. Where I am now is wondering how to implement that in my life and whether or not it is meant to be a career path for me or simply a service to those who actually find me. But to follow is from my Human Design Chiron Chart that show me many ways I was misunderstood as a human by not following my design that I knew nothing about and how imprinted I have been by the energies around me that were not actually my own :Chiron’s Return-
    I have learned that although I have opinions they are meant to be shared only when someone asks for them otherwise I will be misunderstood. I am really meant to be someone who is open to all possibilities and with my open Throat I am really here to open others up to all possibilities.

    I have learned that if people are not asking for my judgement or correction that I will be perceived as being hyper-critical. No one will hear me or they will take it the wrong way. It is better to learn to approach someone for permission; “What do you think about this?” “How can I make this better?” “What is your feedback?” In the high expression I have the design of someone who is here to help people correct the patterns of their past or to heal or align the patterns of their past so that they can heal on a body, mind and spirit level.

    I have learned that I was pretty intense at times and burned people out around me. I also did not take the time to ground myself to see if what I was experiencing was a fantasy or a vision. I need to take the time to figure that out in a grounded manner. The positive aspects are becoming someone who can hold the vision to bring something new into the world.

    I have learned that my maturity is rooted in experience. My challenge is in finding an experience that can light me up and turn me on. I am not inspired by the mundane. I seek experiences that are worth my investment in time, energy and resources. I offer stories that are rooted in life experience.

    I want what I want when it wants it and if I wait I can have it. If I don’t wait I can leap into crisis and chaos. I can be plagued by boredom and can be a master of some kind if I don’t quit. There is great value in learning to wait for the right timing.

    I am a “seeker,” but not necessarily a “finder.” I have a lot of ideas and don’t always know which one to pick so I get confused and can shut down. A lot of my ideas are really meant for other people, but I need to wait for the right people to ask for me to share my ideas. I need to make peace with the flow of possibilities or I will drive myself nuts thinking I have to lock onto just one possibility. I need to be in service to the flow of ideas and possibilities. I tell stories that inspire others to go out and have a new experience.

    I leaned that I can feel frustration when I don’t feel like I am making an impact with my words or my message or what I am here to do with my life purpose. I need a solid understanding of my partner and relationship before I can commit myself to intimacy and that true, deep intimacy is most often found with my soul mate.

    Getting towards the end of my Chiron return. Hard to say how it feels as Saturn was conjunct my sun and moon in Sagittarius as well.
    Overall, I have been quite ill, but it was a very positive experience. I have learnt to communicate much better in a language that isnt either my first or second. I now understand at a deeper lever the concept of the mirror. Also, I think I know why I got ill. I wasn’t taking care of myself and out other people priorities in front of mine.
    It has been a challenging time, I even thought I was going mad. I sustained a head injury and this did propulse me into deep depression, PTSD, constant pain etc ….
    But I learned so much about myself.
    Also I now understand some intricate concepts much better … phylosophie, MArxism, etc
