Why is Chiron the 'Wounded Healer'?

Chiron is a small celestial body that orbits through the signs like the planets, but has a deep and personal connection to our own personal journey of becoming aware of our wounding, and learning that while others can help us, we are all responsible for our own healing.

This is the story and legacy of Chiron a mythical figure who was known as the wounded healer as he constantly healed and gave of himself to others while never realizing he also could heal himself.

Think of him as a modern-day codependent who preferred to help others figure out their own lives rather than deal with his own. There is also a space of external validation here in which we allow others to not just heal our wounds, but to fulfill us and give us a sense of purpose.

How often is this true in our own lives in how we care for others? How often does this show up in our relationships where we try to help someone become the person we think they can be, or excuse toxic behavior out of love?

Chiron ultimately teaches the lesson to not spread ourselves too thin worrying about others. And while it’s admirable and fulfilling to help those around us, we can’t pour from an empty cup.

Chiron encourages us to fill our own cup; to make our healing, our happiness and our lives a priority, because no one else will.

What does Chiron mean in astrology?

This asteroid is also associated with a quarter or midlife crisis in which we are suddenly faced with all the things we tried to avoid in our life, including the wounds of our younger selves.

When Chiron turns retrograde, it means we’re being asked to slow down and reflect so we can gain more knowledge about what has gone into making us the individuals we are, childhood wounds and all.

Chiron first turned retrograde on July 11th, and since then has been traversing the degrees of Aries, asking us to delve deeper into those wounds we have unknowingly carried around, affecting our lives and relationships.
