Chiron: The alchemist

Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly by Kandy Williams

With Chiron currently transiting Aries (it will be there from 2018-2027), we are being gifted with the opportunity to heal the deepest wound a human being can carry (the wound of not being the Self you incarnated to be). This is the wound of not embodying and expressing your unique I AMness. This is truly the biggest tragedy for a soul. It is the wound from which all other traumas originate. Consider the mythology of Chiron, a Centaur who was half-mortal and half-immortal, half-horse and half-human. Being a soul embodied, you too are human and divine, matter and Spirit. How does one reconcile their baser nature with their higher Wisdom? The answer lies in the heart, the very center of our beingness, and the seat of the soul according to many ancient teachings. 

Chiron teaches that in your highest expression, you are the alchemist of your life, taking your traumas and hurts (the times where you were shamed for being who you are) and turning them into healing medicine. By doing your shadow work and fully embracing (accepting and loving) who you are, human and divine, you become an integrated being who is capable of generating great Love. This Love is a healing medicine that helps you, but through the act of healing yourself, you become a conduit for the healing of others as well, not only because you feel more compassion for your fellow beings, but because you now have the ability to clearly see others as well. Through your reflection, others will be able to glimpse their full potential as well, allowing them the opportunity to step onto the path of fullest expression of who they were born to be.

I am an astrologer, healer, and artist. I love nature, creativity, and learning (especially anything that helps me understand myself, others, and the world better and live a more fulfilled life). I am very heart-centered and open-minded and believe that we are all sparks of divinity in form.
