Sun/Chiron Aspects

You understand the pain of existence. Just being alive can be excruciating. You have no allegiance to any group, mindset, brand or corporation. You do your own thing – not out of rebellion, but because that’s just who you are. You are a maverick. You go your own way and make your own rules because the existing rules don’t fit. You discover who you are and who you want to be by recovering the missing pieces of yourself. You are intrinsically, fallibly human. You lead the life of a human being, which is the opposite of being a hero on a pedestal. Even as a mentor or teacher you have flaws. You are learning to accept and embrace your human experience completely. You are perfect in your imperfection. You exist outside of linear “time.” You exist in non-chronological time. Your self-unfolding has its own time schedule which may or may not fit in with your plans and what you think you want to do. You strive to see your life as a complete whole rather than as fragmented chunks. You are putting yourself back together. You are accepting and embracing your limitations. You are accepting and embracing your pain. You are striving for wholeness – retrieving and replacing missing parts of yourself. You are opening a door to the self. You are opening a door to a new way of being.

Sensitivity to what it means to be alive as a human being on this planet. Sensitivity to the human plight. Sensitivity to the plight of animals and all living creatures. Soul sensitivity. Discomfort with being the center of attention. Feeling uncomfortable in your own skin – and needing to do something about it. Feeling that other people are uncomfortable when you are the center of attention. Trouble with feeling that you do not have a central purpose or reason for existing. Difficulty understanding what it is you are ‘supposed’ to be doing with your life, yet having an overwhelming sense that you are supposed to be doing something. Striving to heal the perception that you lack a purpose or point – and finding a unique path in the process. Creating your path as you go along. Discovering that you must create your path because it is yours alone and doesn’t fit an existing mold. The maverick’s path. The healer’s path. The astrologer’s path. The pain of being who you really are. Learning to accept yourself in totality rather than fragmenting off parts of yourself that are difficult to accept. Integrating all areas of your life into one complete whole. Inability to ignore experiences that have left you wounded or in pain. An overriding need to pay attention and find solutions to all that ails you – and helping other people in the process.

Discontented with traditional healing methods. Finding that conventional solutions don’t work for you. Using yourself as a test subject. Self-experimentation. Needing to find out for yourself. Openness to alternative healing methods. Pain and wounding that takes you on a journey to self-discovery. Being on a never-ending treadmill trying to find a cure for your problems. Self-medicating. Self-prescribing. Self-diagnosis. Discovering new healing methods as you attempt to fix your own problems. Convincing yourself that there is something wrong with you. Running in circles trying to find solutions when the solution is to accept that you have flaws. Trying to find a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. Don’t try to fix what ain’t broken. Getting deeper and deeper into new or obscure healing methods. Knowing when to stop searching for solutions and accept things as they are. The inner quest. A hero’s inner journey. The journey to wholeness. The quest for missing pieces.

Helping other people realize the very qualities you lack or that give you pain. You help other people grow what you cannot grow in yourself. Becoming a guide through a particular world of pain. Helping others heal what you cannot heal in yourself. Trouble integrating masculine, or yang, characteristics. Wounded relationships with dad or other significant men in your life. Identifying with the wounded masculine. Having deep sensitivity and compassion for your father. Understanding your father’s pain. Having a father who has been deeply wounded. Feeling that your father or other men in your life have caused you almost insurmountable pain. Trouble with feeling vital, expressive and creative. Problems with confidence until you fully address underlying issues. Your identity is bound up with the parts of yourself that need to be healed. You identify with people who have long-standing hurts and traumas. You identify with people who struggle with their identity and accepting themselves as they are. You identify with people who have trouble reconciling and integrating difficult aspects of their personality. You can become a teacher, guide, mentor or guru to others. You can become a healer. Self-realization requires that you integrate the fragmented pieces of your life. Healing yourself brings out radiant self-expression.

The key to healing is understanding who you are. The key to healing is building self-confidence. The key to healing is knowing your life has a purpose. The key to healing is finding that purpose. The key to healing is tapping into your creative self-expression. The key to healing is to get in touch with your destiny. The key to healing is bringing soul force to your life. You are creating a whole, inclusive sense of self that accepts of all aspects of who you are without conditions. By accepting yourself as you are you show other people how to accept themselves as they are.

Chiron is both a minor planet and a comet. It is located between Saturn and Uranus. Chiron takes about 50 years to make one complete cycle through all the signs of the zodiac. Chiron is in Libra for the shortest amount of time – 1.5 years; and in Aries the longest – about 8 years. Chiron’s symbol resembles a key.

About AstroFix

I’m Michelle and I have an Aries Sun, Leo Moon & Virgo rising.

  • LB

    My Sun and Chiron are parallel, and I relate to most of this.  My life has changed drastically over the years – I’d have occasional glimpses of who I was meant to be, but sensing how much I lacked (or would have to give up), I tried to hide from who I really was (Chiron opposite 12th house Uranus)  Sometimes I still struggle with issues of vulnerability relating to self-worth, although those same issues have served to make me more aware and therefore more compassionate and accepting of others.  I try, anyway.

    My “purpose” didn’t begin to make sense to me until after my Chiron Return when my imperfections finally forced me to make a decision to either “get busy living, or get busy dying”.  My old way of life, including most of the people in it, gradually fell away as I came into my own.  I’ve read where that’s not uncommon with a retrograde Chiron.  I think I always knew that if and when I ever fully embraced my uniqueness, it would socially isolate me to some extent, and that’s been true (Chiron in Aquarius).

    If you haven’t already seen it, here’s a short video worth checking out:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orxEawi9qro

    I really enjoyed this post, Michelle.  As usual, your descriptions are spot-on.  I’m trying to remember – do you have the conjunction?

    • LB

      Adding – I may be more socially isolated, but the connections I do make (particularly through healing), feel connected at a much deeper soul-level and I always feel grateful.  I wouldn’t want anyone to think that having Chiron in Aquarius equals a life of isolation – my path has been uniquely my own.

      • Michelle

        My mom has the same Chiron placement. 

        • LB

          My mom had the same Chiron placement as you (in Aries).  Her Chiron was conjunct my 8th house South Node at 22 Aries – your Sun is pretty close.  Your Chiron is conjunct my 8th house BM Lilith/Sedna and opposite my Sun.  Interesting . . .

          • Michelle

            Huh…very interesting.

          • LB your SN is conjunct DH’s NN by minutes. Your BM Lilith/Sedna is conjunct my 8th house Ceres along with Michelle’s Chiron which is tightly conjunct Ceres. Yep, very interesting!

            • LB

              You know, I know these connections mean something (everything means something), but for now I’ll stick with “interesting”. *** scratches head ***

              • Michelle

                I don’t know what else to say at this point either.

      • billow

        Ha ha again.  I am often accused of being too grateful.  Somehow being laughed at for that doesn’t hold a candle to the beauty of what I have experienced in the seemingly smallest of things.  Tears of joy at the magnitude of beauty is the ultimate experience.

    • Michelle

      “get busy living, or get busy dying”I like that. I kind of feel that way already. I can’t imagine what I’ll feel at my Chiron Return. I hope by that point I’ll have done a good amount of putting myself back together. 

      I think I always knew that if and when I ever fully embraced my uniqueness, it would socially isolate me to some extent, and that’s been true (Chiron in Aquarius).
      That makes sense. Wanting to be accepted by the group could prevent you from risking alienation.

      do you have the conjunction?
      Yes: Sun 19 Aries conjunct Chiron 27 Aries in the 8th house.

      Going to watch the video now…

      • LB

        I’ve read some really positive things about Chiron Returns.  But like everything else about Chiron, my Return was unique.  In addition to other progressions and transits, transiting Saturn was conjunct my natal 12th house Pluto and square my Mars during this same time period, so it was challenging.  🙂

        • billow

          “my chiron return was unique”  .   .   .   There were so many aspects and life events to deal with, I can’t begin to know what threw me in the dumper.  In the end it grounded me like never before.  The Uranus trine Uranus transit is never far behind the chiron return????  That’s where I am at now.  According to Hand, that is deciding to live a life that is more authentic and appropriate for me???  Alot of separating the wheat from the chaff.

          • LB

            Sounds like we had similar experiences during our Chiron Returns, billow.  Mine “grounded” me too.  Actually, it felt more like my wings had been clipped for a time, although eventually I grew new stronger ones that fit me better anyway.  I started collecting butterfly images to remind me of the transformation.

            So you’re going through Uranus trine Uranus now?  I’m not there yet, but with Chiron in Aquarius, I think Uranus transits are always significant, and I’d look forward to the trine.  I saw from your other comment that your Sun/Chiron are quincunx in Virgo/Aquarius.  I also have quincunxes between some of my Aquarius and Virgo placements – from my perspective both want to serve, but in completely different (yet complementary) ways.  Learning how to honor them both is part of the journey, even if it does occasionally drive me craaaaazy.

            • billow

              I am curious (oh oh) about that Saturn Uranus Chiron thing because my Saturn return will follow on the heals of my Uranus trine Uranus transit.  Pluto is squaring my natal mercury at present and I feel that, as msfullroller would say, “key” in all this.  Natal mercury does trine natal chiron.  I am gaining awareness of the trickster at the very least.

              I am getting the feeling that virgo/aquarius set with my sun in virgo is about how best to bring myself to the group experience.  By the time a person hits 50 I think enough changes have happened that reassessment is needed.  Again no clue.  Winging it.  No sense going crazy about it or who will say the key is?  : )

  • Tina

    Wow! Fantastic interpretation that I’m still in awe over! I have Sun at 28 degrees Aries conjunct Chiron  1 degree Taurus. I too have a problem being the center of attention in crowds of people. I have a feeling this might explain my eagerness in tagging along with friends who’ve got strong Leo placements that love to bask in the limelight, while I sit on the side vicariously soaking some of it in through indirect proximity.

    • Michelle

      Thanks Tina. 

      Do you think your friends want you to be more than a tag along?

      Your Sun is conjunct my Chiron by the way 🙂

      • Tina

        Good question! I think with the case of tagging along it’s much more subjective and is mitigated and is hidden on the outside by a double Aries (sun & moon, therefore my moon is on your Chiron as well.. :). I’m also an Aqua rising…so being social is no problem, LOL! 🙂 It’s the ‘center of attention” that I have a harder time with.

        What I love so much much about what you said:

        “The key to healing is tapping into your creative self-expression. The
        key to healing is to get in touch with your destiny. The key to healing
        is bringing soul force to your life.”

        Oh SO TRUE!!!! I’m feeling this being even more the case with transiting Jupiter conjunct my Chiron right now…

        • Michelle

          Quite nice …thank you for the reply 🙂

  • Eliseplain

    Very interesting post -as usual. I have Sun 22 Virgo in the 12th house trine Chiron 27 Taurus in the 8th. All about healing, destiny and accepting myself…

    • Michelle

      Do you participate in any alternative healing practices?

  • Taís Madeira

    I have Sun 21 Gemini conjunct Chiron 22 Gemini at the 5th.

    Thank you, I have never been so aware before that it isn’t me who gets uncomfortable for being the center of attention but the annoying perception that many other people don’t apreciate it. Annoying enough to make me avoid it thought I enjoy it.

    • Michelle

      Chances are, when you are the center of attention, you’re displaying some part of yourself that is so authentic that it makes people feel twitchy –  they can’t deal. 

      • Astrologyhelps

        Feeling that your father or other men in your life have caused you almost insurmountable painsun chiron in 11th with packed 5th house.  Give out a lot of love and receive little back.  Men have been abusive in my life – father emotionally (not sexually), boyfriends have betrayed me repeatedly.  No longer expect anything from men and haven’t dated for 6 years despite an air grand trine that is supposed to make me beautiful.  No longer trust men and no 8th house planets but becoming more suspicious of people and their motives as I get older. 

        Also I work with groups (11th house) and a coworker gets real twitchy when I do my input.  She drives me up the wall… I am instructed to do the input for the love of X. 

        • Do you have a Venus/Pluto aspect?

          • jean

            I have a Venus (2nd house Aquarius) and Pluto (8th house Leo) opposition and had a love-hate relationship with my father……..was fairly battered (emotionally/sometimes physically), as a child, but that was more because my parents were the ‘children’ behaviour wise, rather that myself and 2 sisters. At the same time he worked about 3 jobs trying to give my mother what she wanted and he was always there when you needed him. His father a miner, was violent and ended up in an asylum in the 1920s when he was growing up in Scotland. Presbyterian my father was the youngest of 13, yes 13 children.

    • billow

      Do people sometimes drag you along to a situation they are uncomfortable with so you can fill in the blanks for them?  Like, I just need to be away tonite and I know you will do all the talking so I don’t have to? Or  I am uncomfortable with the situation I am going to, will you come along?  I stop at will you go to the bathroom with me.  I think that is something everyone needs to figure out for themselves. 

      Saving someone’s butt in that way always gets a big thank you which surprises me, because it is normally no big deal for me.
