Chiron enters Aries February 18, 2019 4:06 am ET
Chiron entered Aries for a few months on April 17, 2018 then went Retrograde and has been in Pisces again for a final stint since September 25, 2018. Now Chiron heading forward is in Aries again for the long haul.
Chiron is the wounded healer.
This period will be a time when people need to heal their identity. Aries is where one says, “I Am”.
Self acceptance is a key priority for our lives now.
Uranus has been in Aries for a long time and has created quite a kerfuffle in the past few years as identity politics have been greatly emphasized. People have made a strong effort to identify themselves as one thing or another, and consequently rebelled against opposing identities. Mars meeting Uranus in Aries recently brought a strong sense of urgency and strong emphasis on ego and identity issues. Uranus in Aries has created quite a stir, brought up issues of racism, sexism, genderism, political identities and differences of social class and status. We’ve seen protests of many types.
Now that Uranus has headed out of Aries in March 2019, we will see Chiron bring healing to the Aries space for the long term and emphasis will be on healing the rifts people have made between each other and recognizing the wounds that have been made. We will slowly see a more compassionate stance take root as the lessons Chiron has learned in the spiritual sign of Pisces, brings wisdom into the next stage of healing who we are.
As identities change, we are likely to see people pulling the victim card more often for their benefit as a method of getting attention and validation as a tool for upping their social standing. Aries is very egocentric, it is about the self, which has people seeing things from their own point of view more often than seeing from other people’s points of view. This is an important part of what needs to heal going forward with Chiron in Aries, as people recognize how their own identity is connected to the identities of others.
Aries rules the head, brain and eyes. Healing what we see and think about ourselves and others is on the agenda. Our egos need serious healing. Acknowledging the masks we wear and the masks we place, label and project onto others is necessary. Issues of identity of self vs others, division, racism, defamation, character assassination, smear campaigns, false accusations, and damaged reputations need to be healed to be true to ourselves and humanity.
Chiron will remain in Aries until January 2028.
