On July 15, Chiron turns retrograde in Aries until December 19, 2021. Chiron is what’s called a “centaur”—meaning it has traits of both asteroids and comets. When we look at Chiron, sometimes called the “wounded healer,” in astrology, we’re examining the places where we self-protect because of a traumatizing experience. As the world attempts to consider what a trauma-informed practice looks like as we resume our post-lockdown lives, we’re looking towards Chiron.
While Chiron is retrograde for five months, we’re all asked to get a little more curious about our undefined/unexplored thoughts and emotions so we can heal. Chiron Retrograde wants us to ask ourselves, “Why do I self-protect in this way when confronted with this behavior or situation? Does it really protect me?”
When Chiron moves direct in December, we can continue the work with an equally strong commitment to trauma recovery. Once we get clear on what happened to us and why we respond the way we do, we’re given the space and freedom to choose different behaviors. We can reengage in the world from a place of worthiness, confidence, and a willingness to be seen exactly as we are.
