Chiron was the first medical practitioner in Greek mythology and in astrology, his job is to heal and rejuvenate; to make whole.
He not only mends ailments of the body, but also of the world, thereby mending bonds, homes, and families.
Healing, at least astrological healing, is always a surprising and often painful process. After all, the caterpillar has to digest its own body in order to morph into a butterfly.
The trick is to not be daunted and never to fight it. Embrace the changes and make preparations.
This will be the time to embrace your differences and unique identities. This is when you realize that conformity is not always a boon. These things that seem to be different from others and hence vex you are called Chiron wounds. But as the name of the healer suggests, these are to be accepted as medicine; maybe bitter, but it is medicine.
Here are your wounds which you should use as medicine. Like the great Tyrion Lannister had said: “Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor and it can never be used to hurt you.”
Wound: issues about your body image which always end up affecting the way you perceive yourself and others. This hurts your confidence and your will to do things.
Accept who you are and the way you look. You are a born fighter. Fight with whatever you have.
Wound: not having enough money. At least, never thinking you have enough.
Gautam Buddha had said that all suffering was caused by material attachment. Try to look beyond things you can sense and enrich your soul. That is an asset no one can take away.
Wound: thanks to your indecisive nature, you always think you are not smart enough. You always learn unconventionally and that makes you feel inadequate in comparison to others.
Learn to take a step back when evaluating your worth and taking decisions. Sometimes, a little distance is all it takes to make an informed guess.
Wound: you have a feeling that you do not belong in the family you are in. You seek solace and bonds elsewhere. Despite being empathetic, you are not even sympathetic towards your own pain and lack of expression of sorrow.
Trust your gut and find the peace you deserve. The pastures you seek are beyond the ridge is all.
Wound: an inflated self-image which makes you criticize yourself all the time, even when you don’t have it coming.
Pride is a fine thing, but only in measured and justified amounts. Learn to live with what you see in the mirror, sans the embellishments your mind puts on things.
Wound: being a perfectionist, someone who is obsessed with details. This takes a mental, physical, and spiritual toll on your person.
Friend, there is no such thing called perfection. What you can focus on is being the best you can be instead of constantly using other people as yardsticks for measuring yourself.
Wound: Inability to find a partner who matches your tenacity of commitment.
Give it time, that’s all. The best things come to those who wait. Patience is a virtue. Your sense of justice will be rewarded.
Wound: inability to trust anyone. Being dark and sometimes a bit too passionate about intimacy.
Get your life in order. Be busy. Read, watch films, and self-enrich to the extent that you forget your wound.
Wound: being unsure about your version of the truth.
Well, the only way to know is to ask EVERYONE questions. Only when your perspective is tested against others’ will you know if you are right or wrong.
Wound: depending on others for authority and self-control.
This dependence is an addiction and it has to go. Look at yourself in the mirror and say ten things you love about your life. And remind yourself that you are responsible for those ten great things.
Make it a habit.
Wound: Feelings of alienation. Dissociation with your own self in a way that makes you hate yourself.
Stop being afraid of communication and connections. Build bridges and not moats. Stop detaching. A man is what his surroundings are.
Wound: your fatalistic sense of hopelessness about everything.
It is time to own up, to buckle up. The world might have proved futile but you can make the best of it for yourself and the ones you love.
All the best folks!
