You are probably getting tired of responding to all the Chiron posts, so do not feel obliged to even read this. I'm sure other people enjoy discussing Chiron. I came into this conversation late, but Chiron is always tantalizing.
As an astrologer, I am seeing more and more Chiron connections with people who feel it as a wounded area. I don't even have to explain that to them, they get it right away. What I notice mostly is a close 4th harmonic birth aspect to a planet or light or chart angle made by Chiron. I know there are many brilliant astrologers who use aspects to house cusps as well, and use the transits, but I haven't felt a need for it, with so much else going on.
But....in my own case, I have Chiron conjunct (exact degree) my Sagittarius Mars in my first house which trines my Pluto in the 9th, which sort of makes you think I might have been burned at the stake in an inquisition in a past life (or been the inquisitor). I don't think I was, but I know I had to make hard choices regarding my beliefs, and it feels like an extremely ancient wounded area of myself.
Mars rules my 5th of children. When Pluto transited conjunct my Mars and Chiron in 2003 my daughter got married, and I got to be the mother of the bride and help plan the wedding, and all that goes with that. I was required to stay within a certain meager budget, which I tried to do, but it pained me. I hadn't had any kind of wedding of my own, so this was my chance to not let that happen to my only daughter. Even today, I wished we had spent more money and made it the most beautiful wedding anyone had ever seen. Well, that is just my wounded area talking. It was a beautiful wedding.
At Lura's suggestion, I looked at my parents Chiron aspects at birth. My mother had Chiron at the exact degree of the Moon's Node. Her mother was the most painful wound in my mother's life. She could never communicate with her in any way. Nothing her mother said made sense to her. I can understand that, as my grandmother was a Gracie Allen, if you know who that is, and my mother is a person who needs to spell everything out to the last letter.
My father's Chiron was exactly opposite to his Part of Fortune, and I agree with his birth time. In a way, that so describes my father's wounded area. He always felt that anytime something good happened to him, something bad was right around the corner...that they went hand in hand.
Thanks for all the Chiron ideas.
