What does Chiron in the tenth house mean?

There are 12 houses in astrology. We can learn about our influences at birth by looking at which house Chiron was in.

Each house defines an area of your life.

Since we’ve learned a bit about Chiron and what he represents (The Wounded Healer), we can look at which house he arrived in at your birth and get a good understanding of the area of your life that may contain your core wound.

This is the area that will come up for review at mid-life and your Chiron Return.

What have you done during the first half of your life to acknowledge and address this area of wounding?

What continues to be a block, issue or area of aggravation? What’s up for review?

It’s nothing personal, just Chiron pointing out where healing is still to be done.

Chiron in the tenth house.

Up for an award? The tenth house is the house of achievements and success.

How’s that public image? Is this the year you rebrand?

Or perhaps you finally receive recognition for your work. Sometimes you have to put yourself forward. Go for that promotion, submit your book for that award.

How’s your social circle? Is it time to join an organization or committee that shares your interests?

How’s your reputation? Is it in need of repair? Or are you finally building your platform?

Have you achieved mastery in your field? Maybe now’s the time to position yourself as the expert you are. What are you most dedicated to in your work? Are your professional aspirations being honoured or are you stifling your potential?

Believe in your abilities and expand your social circle to include those who are succeeding at what you truly want to do. Let them help you rise while you lift others.

How can the world benefit from your expertise? Share your mastery.

At this midlife point, Chiron may ask if you are too caught up in how others perceive you that you’ve lost sight of your values. Take stock of your life. What’s important to you? What is left for you to accomplish with your work in the world?

On the other side of that coin is the question: Do you define yourself too much by the work you do? Maybe it’s time to adopt the mantra: I AM ENOUGH.

Your Chiron Return in this house may also find you setting goals for yourself and finding your work rhythm as a late bloomer. Believe in yourself. If you’re starting over or just starting out, set yourself up for success by first valuing yourself and trusting you have what is needed (or will source it) to achieve success in your work.

It’s never too late to succeed.

In order to do so, you need to find your inner authority and know that you are the one you’ve been looking for.

Achievements or none, recognition or not, you are in charge of your work and feeling successful.

Feel that. Right now. In this moment, feel successful. Try it on. Maybe success is a comfy old sweater or a brand new jacket with the tags still attached. Put it on and wear it as only you can.

Much love,
