The synchronicity in my work never fails to ignite awe in me. Of how certain people, their charts and placements are drawn to work with me at certain times. Energy speaks louder than words. It all lines up and for a reason. Lately every reading has had a prominent Chiron and/or Lilith placement. Which is why I felt called to share more about what they represent in astrology. As we all have a wound, somewhere, in our chart. It’s about unlocking it, to live life whole, and not from our shadows and wounded parts.
Chiron in mythology was a teacher, mentor and healer in the arts of medicine and healing. He trained many of the great Heroes as well as the first doctor to work with medicinal practices. Half horse, half human - a Centaur - connected to both the Earthly realms and the Heavenly ones. He received a wound in life that had him suffer for years, which never fully healed. Instead of caving into the pain, he decided to dedicate his life to the healing arts and teach others all he knows about it.
Therefore, he was given the name, Wounded Healer. Also Shamanic Healer. A placement that speaks to a core wound we received in early years or past lifetimes. A wound that is here to be healed and integrated. A wound that has the capability to become your biggest gift - if integrated into your being, instead of being driven by it.
Where in life have you received an internal wound? There lives your Chiron.
Lilith is the Dark Moon Goddess. Seductive, tarnished with rejection, fiercely autonomos. Her desires are strongly felt and lived. Yet there might be a layer of shame when her desirable nature emerges. This can be a sign of a Lilith that is out of alignment. The fear of rejection is another. Deeply magnetic and sensual - Lilith radiates raw sexual magnetism. She is also the feminist archetype that does not shy away from confrontation. She is the part of yourself that fears rejection in that area of your life the most.
When it comes to Lilith, to truly tap into that magnetism, how can you step into her fierceness? That part of yourself that you fear the most. That is where your inner power lies. Your feminine sexuality. Your magnetism. The more raw and authentic we are, the more we speak our truth, the more magnetic we become. No longer playing a role to be liked by others, the good girl syndrome. Authenticity is attractive. What you sometimes fear rejection the most, is your key for your most desirable life.
Where have you received rejection in your life? That is where your Lilith lives.
The thing with healing is that the wound is never going to go away fully. Fragments of hurt and wounds will leave a trail and mark. Just like a scar. You sow up the wound, but the scar remains. How can you mend your wound in a way that it will find healing? How can you tend to your wound like you would a physical scar? With care, patience and remedies.
Whatever we feel, the hurt and emotions of the past, are indicators of where we can grow more in resilience. More into healing. Let Chiron and Lilith guide you on the way to wholeness and healing.
Every month I give an online masterclass on feminine astrology. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, will be held on Thu, 24 August. Lilith in November. In every masterclass, you will learn about the mythology, astrology and meaning behind every placement according to the astrological signs and houses they are in. Explore your astrology through story-telling, teaching and sharing.
