CHIRON Enters ARIES (Feb 18, 2019 – Apr 14, 2027!): The Medicine of Being Authentically You!

15 Feb

Dear Astro Medicine Friend,

Here comes one of the BIG News this year:
Shamanic CHIRON, after having been immersed in the PISCES field since 2010 makes a move: 

CHIRON is about to cross over the Spring Equinox a.k.a. ‘Emergence’ Point, to Show up & ‘Come Alive’ in ARIES on Feb 18 – ‘Delivered’ by the VIR – PI Full Moon on Feb 19!
CHIRON was last year (Apr 17 – Sept 25, 2018) already technically in very early ARIES, for a try-on / preview phase, before re-immersing itself into PISCES over the Fall and Winter 2018 / 19.


CHIRON the Centaur turned Warrior

Yet, from now on, there’s no more holding back:

  • ARIES Medicine comes out – calling us to be authentic.
  • Life is NOW, and This is YOU.
  • With ARIES comes also a sense of urgency – show up and act now!
  • Be a Warrior or Midwife for a new World to be born…

…after perhaps being rather passive in the exposure to the state of the world, the climate, the effects of socio-political-economical structures, and other ‘bigger than life’ influences…

CHIRON in PI has shown:
One of the PISCEAN ‘wounds’ is overwhelm through the sense that all is connected, through individual heightened sensitivity, helplessness, perhaps leading us to escape and ‘disappear’, to avoid more exposure to toxicity and harmful influences that we ‘can’t do anything about’.

No wonder, things were a bit (or a LOT) overwhelming, as CHIRON was even connected with NEPTUNE in PI, in 2013.
Maybe CHIRON (2010 – 2019) and NEPTUNE (2012 – 2026) in PISCES have been syndromes of the outflowing Pisces Age.

PISCES is full of paradoxes, showing us:
Apparent opposites are ONE… incl. when it comes to Wounding / Healing experiences, with CHIRON travelling through PI since 2010. E.g., new addictions showed up, esp to technology which promises ‘connection’ yet only offers a facade of it, not the ‘real thing’, and isolating people even more socially. Addictions are quite often based in a need for connection (another PISCEAN core wound), and for letting go of the separate self and being absorbed in something larger.
Connectedness and Oneness is a big theme and Healing Agent in PISCES.
How have you felt Healing through Connection and being ONE with the All?

If you were even born with CHIRON in PISCES (1960 – 1968) and had your CHIRON Return these past years since 2010:
How has an original wound come full circle for Healing, and as a Teaching?
How do you now carry this ‘Medicine’ for yourself and to share with others whom you connect with?

Now, as CHIRON travels for 8 years in ARIES – the archetypal Warrior – ruled by MARS:

  • All is fresh and NEW in ARIES.
  • Try out something NEW – and see the World and Yourself with New Eyes!
  • Find the Medicine of Being Authentically YOU!
  • Take Initiative. Be First. Others may be on board or follow. What matters is: YOU’re there.
  • Emerge from the Collective Consciousness. Which can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.
    Hopefully URANUS going through ARIES (2011 – 2019) has already liberated you to be YOU.
  • Be a Warrior or Midwife for the New World that’s emerging!

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider.
In ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and pro-actively (incl. solo) DO what matters to us. It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 

Yet, what the heck? says ARIES, It’s my life, this is ME.
Early ARIES is a Warrior / Survivor. All about the NOW.

That’s what ARIES is all about: NOW THIS!
Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment – like blossoms surprising us daily now. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way and in the ‘new world’, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger and being triggered to assert yourself in the moment as well as being / doing things by yourself (ARIES expressions) can be your vulnerability yet also guide you to your Medicine.

On a collective level, we’re finally waking up to the Emergency of the impacts of Climate Change.
With emergent action, as in the municipal incl. CRD declarations of Climate Emergency and calling to work for carbon neutrality / zero carbon emissions in the region by 2030.

CHIRON in ARIES (Feb 18, 2019 – Apr 14, 2027)
Meetings with other Cosmic Archetypes

Well, since it’ll be an 8-year process let’s keep it simple and closer to the NOW :-), and look ‘just’ into 2019 – 2021:


  • In 2019 – 2020, CHIRON freshly in ARIES will be for basically both years in a semi-sextile (one sign apart) with URANUS freshly in TAURUS (from March 6 on – comes with the PISCES NM). Both move about the same speed from Earth perspective.
    Even though, this aspect alignment is per se not a major one, yet since both Archetypes will have freshly changed signs, and URANUS having left ARIES which CHIRON enters gives it more ‘ooomph’. How?
    URANUS in ARIES (2011 – 2019) has been an initial Wake-up Call, and Awakening Agent.
    Now as URANUS goes into TAURUS (March 6, 2019) for the next 7 years, it’s about Embodying and Manifesting the New & Awake.
    CHIRON in ARIES shows our Wounds and offers Healing & Teaching Medicine for Showing up in the New World / as the New Self.


  • On Dec 8, 2019, stationary CHIRON in early ARIES goes into cardinal square with JUPITER freshly (from Dec 2 on) in CAP! This aspect will be active throughout end of Nov / early Dec.
    A challenge for that notion to be fresh and new in the NOW, in the face of traditions, obligations, and perhaps just before the Holidays, through having taken a lot on?


  • Early March 2020, LILITH freshly in ARIES meets & passes CHIRON.
    Plus the Nodal Axis, with the South Node then in early CAP and the North Node in early CAN will be T-squared by CHIRON in early ARIES.
    This looks like a major call for another level of letting the Old Empire Expire (SN in CAP) – outer and inner (e.g. doing things the hard way, and wasting time and energy with disempowered judgment and resistance)… while nurturing and being gentle and compassionate, taking pro-actively (ARIES) care of our needs, and live as the New Authentic Self in our True Nature.


  • In 2021, both JUPITER and SATURN by then in AQ go into sextile with CHIRON in ARIES.
    JUPITER just in Jan, SATURN 3 times, in Feb, June, and Nov.
    More support for the New and Liberated Self in Togetherness as Humanity.


How far does CHIRON go into ARIES this Year, 2019?

Up to 5°56 ARIES where CHIRON goes retro from, on July 8, back to 1°26 ARIES in December – going direct there on Dec 12.
So if you have your SUN, MOON, AC, Planets, or even CHIRON in early ARIES you’ll be affected by CHIRON’s passage this year.


CHIRON in ARIES in Your Chart & Life…

For those of you born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.

For all of us (independent of age) if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in ARIES (or challenged by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP), CHIRON activates for the next 8 years the Medicine of these Planetary Archetypes, and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where ARIES is in your birth (and geographic local) chart/s to showing up there / with those Archetypes, in your Awake, Authentic Self.

CHIRON in ARIES gives us a ‘kick’ to take initiative, and take a step (and baby steps!) forward, authentically as we are, esp. in areas of life related to where ARIES is in our indiv. chart…:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House:
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House:
Your Environment

4th House:
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House:
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

8th House:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

MARS late VIRGO opposite CHIRON in PI: Release Ceremony into the New Moon

18 Oct

Dear Astro Friends,

there are so many ways of experiencing and interpreting the dances of the Archetypal ‘Players’ out there and in us. Depending on the perspective and level from which one is seeing – which is very apropos what SATURN now in SAG shows us: Not ‘one truth’.

Today, as we’re inundated by rain storms here on the We(s)t Coast, and as we’re all moving into the late LIBRA New Moon tomorrow Oct 19 (will address it in a separate blog post), I’d like to offer you a hopefully useful ‘script’ for the MARS in late VIRGO opposite CHIRON in late PISCES dynamic that’s playing out all October, and was exact on Oct 15.


Aztec Shaman

The combination, and ‘bridge’ of their Archetypes is:
‘Medicine Wo/man’, and Shamanic Warrior.

In the meantime, a lot of division and polarization (typical for an opposition) shows up in the ‘psychic field’.
Let’s see what the voices of the polarized players say and sound like.
Identification and awareness (one of VIRGO’s ‘super weapons’, in Martian terms) is the first step to re-unification.

MARS now in the last phase of VIRGO which is ‘double VIRGO’, before moving into LIBRA on Oct 22.

Are your ‘inner dragons’ telling you, you aren’t ‘enough’, something’s always ‘wrong’ with you or ‘them’, and ‘a problem’?
Or do you take your frustrations out on others?

Step 1:
Can you first of all be aware of that inner ‘nay-sayer’?

How it diminishes you, critiques your experience, nothing is ever good enough…
Perhaps you can identify whose voice that really is?!

OH – and what’s its intention? To protect you…? To make your life or the world a better place? All legit.

Be a bit analytical (VIR), but mostly ask your gut sense about its deeper nature.
MERCURY / JUPITER now in SCO help with this.

Being in trusted, resonant company where you can just BE present, and where open sharing is welcome helps tremendously with this process.
That’s where CHIRON in PISCES comes in…
Hopefully you have friends and groups with whom this is possible.

If not and / or you feel called, join an Astro Experience group where we intentionally share and process in community. Or even join the Astro EmBODYment (no experience needed) that we do about monthly. Next one: Coming Fri Oct 20.

Or come for a 1-on-1 session or coaching package if that feels better to you.
I’m happy to talk with you about customizing the best option for you.

Step 2:
Acknowledging those darker sides:
Here you are. I see you.

In a simple and neutral way. Perhaps ‘sitting’ with it, walking a mile with it – as a witnessing friend.

Step 3:
After the awareness and acknowledgement is the processing and releasing with / in love.

For me and maybe for you too, these steps are of course interwoven. When love shows up the barriers are down, and the energy flows naturally.
I was breaking them down here (maybe VIRGO inspired me) which can be helpful if you realize you got stuck somewhere.


SCORPIO says: Process all the way through.

What comes UP wants to come OUT.

Digging, processing, and change is a BIG deal, and can lead to more freedom, now under JUPITER in SCO (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018).
When SATURN was in SCO (Oct 2012 – Sept 2015) we faced our inner fears, obstacles, and resistances to deep change. Hopefully you are ‘done’ with some of your core resistances, and can see what purpose they served, and how you were conditioned (these are all SATURN themes).

If you are passionate, or presently more motivated, to dive into the dark, hidden SCO depths you may well dig out treasures without the fear of approaching them.

An intentional ceremony that symbolically offers up the old limiting ‘stickiness’ is also excellent for MARS in VIRGO opp. CHIRON in PI, and this NEW MOON that catalyzes JUPITER’s entry into SCO – MERCURY and the MOON in SCO join.

Ideally do a Release Ceremony before the New Moon (which will be at 12:12 pm PDT tomorrow Oct 19).
If you’re here on the We(s)t Coast and under the influence of the current rain storms, join me in dedicating the energy of the Rain to washing out old dysfunctional patterns that are based on ‘smallness’ and (self) critical ways of being.

So much energy can be freed up, and space opened up.

The Sabian Symbol for MARS’s transition from VIR to LI , says:

PHASE 180 (VIRGO 30°):



KEYNOTE: The total concentration required for reaching any spiritual goal.

This is the final symbol of the first half of the cycle. In the year cycle the fall equinox is now at hand; autumn begins. Through spring and summer many ways and byways have been experienced. The last message of this hemicycle of “Individualization” is that on all decisive occasions what must be done has to be done so intently that no outer voices can penetrate the mind, still less the soul. The neophyte stands at the gates of the sacred Pyramid. There is only one step he can take — ahead, or he is lost.

This is the culminating step, the decision that results from a myriad of small choices. Still a shadow of hesitation can remain. Attention may be distracted from the Now by a voice from the past, glamorizing some old memory. The outer doors of perception and thought must be closed, so the soul can complete its CONQUEST OF ILLUSION.


Stay tuned for the end-of-LIBRA New Moon (Oct 19) Astro~News! 



You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11, 2017), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.
