Chiron Eventually Takes His Own Advice – He Gives Up

Eventually, after trying in vain to heal himself, Chiron takes his own advice- he gives up. After gaining knowledge and insight into healing therapies and discovering medicine, Chiron never cures himself.

Searching for a solution never delivers the solution.

He never finds the potion, lotion, energy therapy, flotation tank, raw food diet, flower essence, homeopathic remedy, or yoga pose that delivers the cure. Chiron helps many people and discovers many things, but he never heals his pain. Chiron decides that he would rather give up his immortality, become human, and die, than remain an immortal and live with the pain.

Chiron Stops Self-Medicating

Only then does he find the solution. Chiron willingly gives up his immortality and he dies – he lets go of the fixation on the wound.

Chiron accepts that some things are beyond his understanding and that some problems- problems that are not necessarily deserved – are beyond his ability to heal.

He hands the burden of living forever over to someone else (Prometheus). He stops self-medicating in an attempt to find a cure. He squarely faces his wound, gives himself over, and transcends it. 

How do we medicate ourselves? Alcohol, drugs, sex, spirituality, alternative therapies, relationships, food, shopping, etc… all to make life more bearable.

All Alone: No One Knows My Pain

Chiron could not have been the only person ever to be injured by a Hydra, but he probably felt that way. There’s something about a Chirotic wound that makes people want to isolate. Perhaps they feel that no one could ever understand the particular problem that they have, but chances are good – with 6 billion+ people on the planet – they’re wrong.

How many people did Chiron ignore or alienate while he focused on his own suffering?

Because we are not immortal and we have only one life to live, there are several ways to look at the myth

  • By admitting that we have a particular problem, we stop pretending that we are above it all, we come down to earth, and we join the rest of humanity.
  • Becoming human is to admit having problems that we cannot fix ourselves and with which we need help.
  • Death is a metaphor for transformation – the ultimate letting go.
  • When we stop focusing on the pain, and making it the reason for existence, we open ourselves up to transformation and transcendence.
  • Once we accept this tender spot in our makeup, and stop trying to fix it, we allow ourselves to transform.
  • “Giving up” is voluntarily letting go of the fixation on a problem that won’t go away.

    Depending on the house system I use I have Chiron Rx Aries 4’04 in either the 11th or 10th house. In equal house it’s almost right on the cusp which is 4’39
    I’m not sure which one fits me….perhaps both. :-)

    Chiron in the 10th house: I don’t know it all when it comes to my place in life. I feel acutely sensitive about my reputation and my level of achievement. I can become profoundly wise by finding my true vocation. I release myself from pain when I accept my place in society as it is. I reconnect with people when I realize that others experience the same problems that I do.

      Are power, authority and control a source of pain in your life, or are humanitarian efforts, group interactions and people who share you interests a source of pain?

      • Anonymous

        Good question,:-) ..and just the right one too…..I hadn’t been able to figure this out at all for some reason….
        I think power, authority and control would be it , because I’ve spent much of my life feeling unempowered and unable to take control of many of the circumstances in my life.
        So…10th house then.
        Wow.
        Thank you for helping me figure that out.
        That was really bugging me. :-)

      • meow

        so feeling powerless can be traced to a 10th house Chiron?

        • Michelle

          That’s one sign that there are feelings of powerless. Usually though an important theme in a chart will repeat itself. 

      • meow

        I have the same issue, because my Chiron is either in the 10th or 11th depending on house system..but I can identify with both, strangely.
        I have always feel awkward in society, especially large groups. But this can be explained through basic psychology, so dunno if it points towards my Chiron placement.
        I have been treated like a loser my whole life, by everybody around me, including my own family..so I feel like I have turned into a self-fulfilled prophecy.

        • Michelle

          This sounds more like Chiron in the 11th house – not fitting in with your peers. The powerlessness of the 10th house would be more like feeling that you haven’t accomplished anything and having issues with authority figures.

          • meow

            well, I also feel like I haven’t achieved anything. More like, I feel that no matter what I’ll do, I won’t achieve anything.

            • Michelle

              I’ve felt that way too. I just had to push through it. Positive thinking. 

              Is your Mercury in aspect to Saturn?

              • meow

                nnope, but my Mercury is very damaged. It’s in Pisces, conjunct North Node, square Moon-Mars-Jupiter in Gemini, sextile Uranus, aand..also makes a 2 degree orb trine to Chiron, actually. And also conjunct Vertex, at a 2 degree orb..if that helps.
                And it also rules my Asc(Virgo).
                I wish I had some strong Saturn aspects in my chart..I really could use those. I have none..just a meek sextile to my Venus, a meek trine to my Asc, and a tight conjunction to Neptune, loose conjunction to Uranus, sextile Pluto.

    I think Chiron's influence can show bad things, but, from looking at charts, and my own experience of it, it's mostly about acute sensitivity and how you deal with that sensitivity. It differs from the sensitivity of the Moon and Neptune because it does actually feel painful. My guess is that most people, when talking about their Chiron areas, will wince- as if in real physical pain, even if they are not.

    This is another “hit the nail on the head” post for me!

    I joined Ancestry.com and I learned a lot, ordered marriage records from different states, and I plan on ordering one of those DNA test to see what my heritage is. There is a serious mix of cultures in my family and since the majority is Afr. Am. and there are no records I always wondered what region I come from. This is something that is very important to me and I didn't know it came from Chiron is in Taurus in my 4th house. I always associate Chiron with bad stuff but this makes sense.

    Love the owls. Priceless. Yes, chiron is so hard to grasp. Maybe because right now it’s conj. Neptune in Aquarius. I went to Seattle one xmas with an old hi school chum. We parked tired and endangered right beside a second hand book store. I walked in and the only book in the astrology section was “chiron”. Later I noticed my friend whom I re-united with at the top of the Grouse Grind mountaintop had Chiron prominent. She later became the catalyst for my leap and I gave up the moralities of right and wrong in surrender to the only person I could seemingly trust in the world only to find myself in outer space looking around at a pure infinite calm non dual space. Now what? lol

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Congratulations. I have a friend with Sun-Chiron in partile conjunction in Taurus in the 3rd house- she’s someone I found myself opening up to amazingly quickly- not a common thing for me. Her Sun-Chiron conjuncts my South Node within 1 degree.

      I think Chiron is difficult to get a hold of in general, but I think you’re right about it being especially slippery now with the conjunction to Neptune.

      P.S. I love your name- it made me smile.

  • angeline/elise

    Love this!! Chiron is something I really struggle to grasp in my own chart and others. I mean, you can read about it all you like I just have no intuition for it…this article helped immensely!

    Chiron on 4th/5th house cusp…and baby I feel it in both!

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      I’m really glad that you got something out of this article. I feel like I have a good grasp on Chiron because it makes a tight aspect to my chart ruler, and it forms an aspect with nearly every planet in my chart.

    May I send you a question to be posted in regards to my natal chiron? Its something that I would like to have a deeper understanding on.
