Brainstorm: Chiron / Uranus Astrology Aspects

Written in short, fragmented sentences, this article embraces a loose, stream of conscious, brainstorm-style of writing to explore the meaning of the planet Uranus in aspect to the centaur Chiron in astrology. Entertaining read for new and experienced astrologers alike. This article is included in the Chiron + Planets astrology eBook.

olving the collective rejection of society’s fringe elements. Waking up to the wounding of groups of people who have been marginalized and outcast. The pain of ostracized groups of people begins to be healed. We begin to let in the pain of outcast members of society. Healing generational wounds through unconventional methods. Healing through getting in touch with your inner weirdo or freak. Feeling healed by surrounding yourself with outcasts and people on the fringe. Revival of ‘bizarre’ tribal customs – tattooing, piercing, scarring, body modification, etc… Feeling like you fit in better when you don’t fit in.

Seeking to more fully integrate unusual behaviors and strange desires into mainstream society. Making room for fringe elements in mainstream society. Making room for astrology in mainstream society. Making room for far-out theories and ideas in mainstream society. Sudden insight into deeper elements of science and technology. Bridging gaps in the way we think about science and technology. Whether through rebellion, riot or revolt, conservative mindsets can’t prevent edgier elements from cutting through.

Behaviors once considered deviant begin to demand integration and acceptance. The desire to individuate becomes a source of healing but also a source of alienation. Being an individual brings the pain of alienation from the group. Detachment and cool uncaring attitudes need to be healed. Hipsters. “I’m so cool, it hurts.” Inability to let empathy flow. Detrimental, almost robotic, detachment. Coolness, progressive attitudes, and needing to be at the leading edge, can be almost like a prison. Deep fears of being seen as old, stuffy, conservative, or out of the loop. Preferring to show no emotional attachment at all rather than make a fool of yourself; or, taking your attachments to such an extreme that you become almost beyond reproach. Tragically hip.

These natives are courageous and cannot be stopped if they believe in something, and they are driven to get to the truth and meaning of any situation.
― Barbara Hand Clow, Chiron: Rainbow Bridge Between Inner and Outer Planets

The fear of not being different. The fear of being incredibly bland and having nothing unique or brilliant to offer the world. The pain of feeling like one of the faceless masses. The fear of being generic. Going to extremes to prove that you are unique. Gaining attention by purposely embracing a shocking path in life. Becoming a mentor and healer by awakening to what is unique within you.  Becoming a guide to outcasts. Healing fragmented aspects of yourself by embracing shocking or progressive viewpoints. Sudden leaps in recognition bring healing. Sudden insight into collective patterns of pain and wounding.

The actual influence of Chiron-Uranus aspects appears to be an amplification of the basic Uranian traits in the person. It is extremely important for these people to be distinct individuals; to feel truly that they exist as separate entities, unique, one-of-a-kind.
― Zane B. Stein, Essence and Application: A View from Chiron

Becoming whole by accepting the aspects of our personalities that we have rejected. Plugged into the healing power of group experiences. Forming your own group, tribe, collective or organization to address the issues that concern you – no matter how far out of the mainstream. Pain comes through disassociating aspects of your personality that don’t conform to parental, societal or other conventional expectations. Pain comes through the continued splintering off of marginalized segments of society. Celebrating differences helps heal pain and wounding. Celebrating progress, freedom and detachment from the status quo helps heal pain. There’s a group for everything. There’s an app for everything. Technology at the expense of humanity becomes an issue. Healing with electricity or electrical currents. Acupuncture goes mainstream.

The key to healing is to integrate the parts of your personality that may conflict with society’s sense of ‘normal’. The key to healing is to embrace technology without losing your humanity. The key to healing is to make room for the unconventional in your life. Wholeness comes through accepting your banal traits as well as your unique traits. Wholeness comes through recognizing how the outcasts of the world mirror your own inner state of alienation and rejection. Wholeness comes through bringing forward more of your repressed personality traits and quirks. Healing comes through breaking the mold of who you think you’re supposed to be and what you think you’re supposed to do. Wholeness comes through embracing far-out, fringe and bizarre theories and ideas. You could become a mentor on some strange, derided or ‘crazy’ idea.
