I’ve been writing lately about why I am a sex coach and educator. I knew that it came from seeing how my past journey could help others. What I didn’t know was that it was my destiny. I recently learned of Chiron, and what it means in your astrological profile. Before you go pooh poohing astrology, think about this; we know that the planets have a clear affect on bodies of water, and our bodies are mostly water. . . therefore, the planets do affect my personality.
According to www.cafeastrology.com “Chiron is a comet with a unique and erratic orbit. In the natal chart, Chiron is symbolized by the “wounded healer”. It represents our deepest wound, and our efforts to heal the wound. Chiron was named after the centaur in Greek mythology who was a healer and teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself. Chiron in our natal charts points to where we have healing powers as the result of our own deep spiritual wounds. We may over-compensate in these areas of life. Chiron, as a wounded healer, first must face issues of low self-worth and feelings of inadequacy and learn to rise above these issues. Because the wound goes deep, and we may work hard to overcome the wound, healing powers are potent.”
Chiron is currently located in Pisces, which is my 8th house. And here is what that means:
“Chiron in the 8th house: What a great sex therapist you can be. A more likely scenario is that you have the ability to bring out the sexual best in a romantic partner, while giving yourself the short end of the stick (no pun intended). But the 8th house rules more than sex. You might tend to accept other people’s values (your family, group or society) too readily. One other thing. The myth of Chiron can actually come alive with this placement. You could have a talent for healing or rehabilitating others, but not yourself.” (courtesy of astrologer Bob Marks).
My jaw dropped when I read this. It seems it was my destiny to do this work. I was wounded at age 8, when I was sexually molested. I write more extensively about my healing journey here. From that experience I have come to believe passionately in the right of every human being to experience the full vitality of their being. The chakras that govern our sexuality, also control our creativity and emotions. By freeing up our sexuality, we become more potent creators. The work of releasing old beliefs and traumas is not just mental work. We need to also move it through our physical body. That is why I incorporate energy work into all my programs. That is why I teach physical exercises and techniques to my students to get them back in touch with their bodies. As for being unable to heal or rehabilitate myself (according to the website) I think that is true. It has taken many workshops, teachers, mentors, and friends to heal me. But I had to be the one to take the first step, and seek them out. I had to let other people know that I was disconnected, scared, and faking it. That is a vulnerable experience, but well worth it. I wasn’t willing to live a half-life anymore. My wounding has become my gift as I help others on this journey to wholeness. What has worked for you? Leave me a comment.
