Hi Ken and all,
Have included data for the event, and I hope this is easy enough to follow. I know I’m straying from the synastry aspect of Chiron here, but hope this highlights an example of Chirons effect. The week from the 16th to 22nd of August 89 was so intense, and although not included in the description below, my grandfather also died during this time and his funeral was on the day my daughter died, sometimes I look back and wonder, did all that really happen in such a short time? But it does highlight a time period.
25 February 1963
Auckland, New Zealand
16 August 1989
Tauranga, New Zealand
Tr Chiron 13 Cancer in 5th
Tr Pluto 12 Scorpio in 10th
Completes water trine with Moon 13 Pisces 2nd (natally opposing Pluto 11 Virgo in 8th and trine Neptune 15 Scorpio 10th)
36 weeks pregnant, undiagnosed placenta previa, resulting in life threatening haemorrhage, necessary to perform emergency caesarean under general anaesthetic. Left my body during this time, clearly viewing obstetrician, doctors and midwife from above, hearing a snippet of conversation between the two registrars present.
Baby girl in severe distress from birth, died 6 days later, 22 August 89.
Chiron in Cancer 5th, wound around nurturing a child, (was unable to physically hold her as she lived her short life in an incubator), and was also concerned that I was unable to bond and feel the love and motherly connection that I had on my first daughters birth.
Now I realise there were other major influences here going on at the same time, so cannot just isolate Chiron alone, but feel it was definitely part of the whole picture.
Pluto was within 3 degrees of conj with natal Neptune in 10th (supernatural/out of body experience and parental house), square Mercury ruler of 5th.
In the long term view, with natal Chiron Moon opposing Pluto activated, I’ve spent a lot of time over the subsequent years involved in supporting other mothers through their own grieving and emotional processes after the death of their babies. My understanding here is that through encountering others with similar type wounds, it is an opportunity to heal, gain perspective and come to terms with what has happened.
I now understand that without this experience, I probably would have not had the depth, compassion or courage to enter into this area. Along the way I have also met mums who as a direct result of the loss of their own children, have made decisions to pursue careers as funeral celebrants, grief counsellors, kindergarten teachers, and support people.
In your own event chart, I noticed that Chiron had just entered the 12th, but was conj tr Pluto, so am wondering if we could look to Chiron Pluto contacts, to highlight a more intense effect?.
Well that’s enough from me for the moment.. I’m enjoying this thread and reading of everyones thoughts and experiences..
