There are 12 signs in astrology. We can learn about our influences at birth by looking at which sign Chiron was in.
Each sign 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 sign 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 Aries.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac.
This is the house of trailblazers, leaders and initiators.
There is a lot of energy, agility, speed and inspiration in this house.
This energy can show up as highly competitive. Chiron Return may show you where you’re being competitive at all costs. The core wound here may cause you to compete for first in order to prove you’re enough. Self-worth, and self-esteem can be the true cause of that striving.
Perhaps it’s time to improve your relationship with yourself.
Who AM I?
This is the question that begs answering at midlife for those with Chiron in Aries.
Find a great teacher and explore practices that bring you into right relation with yourself. Once this prime relationship improves, you will no longer feel the burning desire to continually prove yourself. You can channel that energy into new inspiration, connections or simply create space around you and within. You’ll take your natural place of leader, teacher, healer or trailblazer in the world.
Discover who you are and enjoy your individuality, not because you have anything to prove, but because you know who you are and what you naturally have to offer the world.
Remember that old Saturday Night Live skit: Daily affirmations with Stuart Smalley? Well, it’s now your affirmation for Chiron Return in Aries.
I’m Good Enough, I’m Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!
It’s okay to take some of that Aries energy (or a lot of that energy) and pour it into yourself. You’re always fighting for a cause. If you’re feeling unappreciated or stretched at midlife, pull your energy back and nourish yourself. You’ll know when you’ve filled your cup because it will naturally flow over onto others.
Not get dumped on their heads.
