Chiron Enters Aries and Saturn Stations -This Week’s Astrology

“When you forgive, some deeper, divine generosity takes you over…when you cannot forgive, you are a prisoner of the hurt done to you.” John O’Donohue

“Healing is a process, a movement, a transition towards balance, connected-ness, meaning and wholeness. Healing is a movement, not an outcome.” Richard Katz.

Chiron, the asteroid of the Wounded Healer,  ends his eight year transit through the sign of Pisces when he enters Aries this week on the 17th.  Chiron is associated with the kind of chaos that results from emotional wounding or wounding to the soul.

The ancient shamans say that when trauma occurs, a piece of the soul fragments off. Their ritual of soul retrieval calls back the fragmented piece resulting in a renewed level of wholeness. The ending of Chiron’s transit this week signals the end of a cycle and the start of a new one. It is an excellent time to call the end to any chaos in your life around emotional issues; to evaluate what you have learned up to this point so you can move forward with a clean slate.

Saturn stations direct this week also. Saturn teaches us about the rules of the road and is also the stern, wise father figure or authority figure who teaches about  what we must to in order to be effective in implementing our goals and life purpose. Rudolf Steiner wrote about it this way,

“To resolve our past
Requires knowledge.

To forge our future
We need courage.

To experience the present
We must develop dedication.

Our thinking needs
Riddles to wake up.

Our feeling needs
Pain to mature.

Our willing needs
Resistance to become strong.”
