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 Virgo.
This sign knows things, needs order, solves problems and expects much.
The saying “The devil is in the details” comes to mind.
At Chiron Return, ask yourself if you’re so concerned with each and every little detail that you’re missing the bigger picture or not getting anything accomplished at all.
Can you create nourishing processes? Whether in your work or personal life, where can you improve enjoyment of your daily activities through inviting a little flow to accompany all that form?
The flip side? Has midlife found you overflowing: spilling emotions and sloppy work habits out around you? Find a container, structure or process for dealing with your emotions, managing your finances or streamlining your work.
Drop the perfectionism.
I wrote a blog post years ago about something fascinating: the difference between boys and girls when it came to not only doing the work, but showing your work. As I plumbed the Virgo Chiron Return, this post came to mind. It may do you good to read it.
Repeat after me: “I have nothing to prove. I enjoy my work and my life. I am enough.”
You’re crushing it! Because, honestly, there’s no wrong way to do life.
Maybe some messy art is in order. Colour outside the lines. A teacher once told me that the antidote to perfectionism is crappy creativity.
That’s creativity just for creativity’s sake. Not because anyone will see it or you’ll sell it or put any pressure on it or you.
There is nothing wrong with you. Take this time to really befriend yourself. You don’t need to fix anything. Whatever you were led to believe is wrong with you from your early years, is false.
Take whatever part of you you’ve been focused on fixing and embrace it instead. Show it some love.
Let imperfection be the name of the game. It’s all those imperfections that make life so interesting and people so unique.
I see you. You’re freaking awesome!
