Chiron Prepares to Leave Pisces

“The whole of the universe has been breathlessly anticipating your arrival.” Martin Bell

Chiron, the asteroid of the Wounded Healer, who in mythology was renowned for his  metaphysical skills, will leave the sign of Pisces on April 17 and enter the sign of Aries. Chiron has been transiting Pisces since April of 2010.

Chiron rules fragmentation and the kind of chaos that can result from it.  Pisces is the sign of interconnectedness – it is the last sign of the zodiac and in its evolved state is associated with wisdom – the kind of boundary- less wisdom that understands the underlying interconnectedness of all life.

Pisces also rules illusion, disillusionment and addiction as defined as a derailed idealistic or spiritual journey. This sign is also associated with co-dependence or the tendency to take too much responsibility for someone else’s life and lose touch  with, or lose energy for, your own life path as a result.

Chiron was legendary, not only for his remarkable healing abilities but for the metaphysical skills he brought to the gods and goddesses.  Astrology, for instance, can provide direction or address challenges well because it is a unified system and sees the individual chart as a unified whole. And astrology can provide guidance about appropriate timing. And timing,of course, is everything. Being aware of what is likely to work well based on astrological calculations, can save a lot of time and effort.

As Chiron prepares to move out of the sign of Pisces it bodes well to reflect on the evolutionary journey towards wholeness in your life and what part healing fragmentation has played and continues to play – as Chiron will move from the contemplative sign of Pisces into the Aries – the sign of taking action.
