Chiron’s role in astrology is to show us where we need to do the work. Planets aspecting Chiron and its house position will reveal its role in your chart.

Chiron is known as the “wounded healer” because this area within the chart exposes the wound; the learning process is one you acquire throughout your lifetime. Learning to work with Chiron can help you understand yourself more and provide the knowledge for others to achieve some form of success based on your experiences.

When Chiron is located on the ascendant, it can show that the natives will doubt themselves, may feel insecure, and will have to dig deep to uncover the beauty inside them.

Chiron in the 2nd house

Chiron here can be linked to the material or a need to have as much as possible. The natives may view material possessions as trophies. When they abandon this mindset and understand that they should focus on acquiring practical things, it will help them heal their wound.



Having a lot of ambition could be a double-edged sword for the natives. While you strive to make your way to the top, you must understand that material wealth does not guarantee happiness.

Chiron in the 3rd house

Those with Chiron in the third need to silence their inner critic as well as the people who may judge their opinions or radical way of thinking. Chiron wants the native to continue their learning journey and trust the process.
