  • Chiron Retrograde in Aries

    Chiron is a Centaur, which, in astronomical terms, is a small solar system body that was pulled into orbit between the inner and outer planets by the gravitational force of Neptune.  This tells us something about the meaning of Chiron in astrological terms.  Chiron can be seen as a go-between from the outer planets which are intimately tied in with our collective consciousness and subconsciousness, to the visible inner, personal planets.

    In early January, the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, and four asteroids met up with the South Node of the moon and an exact Pluto-Saturn conjunction in the sign of Capricorn.  Pluto-Saturn conjunctions have historically been associated with war and economic downturn (WWI, the Cold War, the economic recession of the early 1980s and the AIDS epidemic, to name a few).

    The subjects of war, economic downturn, and societal change (and any Saturn-Pluto conjunction) naturally test our reliance on current authority, restructure power dynamics, and force us to examine our use and allocation of resources. 

  • Calling All Asteroids (Asteroid Goddess Guide)

    Ceres, Pallas, Juno, Vesta … We discovered these female celestial bodies over 200 years ago.  But if you are reading this, chances are you are more familiar with Chiron, the male centaur “wounded healer” discovered in the late 70s.  Why?  The answer, it seems, is more complex than blaming any undercurrent of misogyny within the astrological community.
