Astrology is pretty much what has brought me to where I am today. Astrology is such a great tool to grasp how you are a part of the bigger picture. Without it, I really would have been a very lost soul. Astrology helps me to understand where I'm coming from, where I'm at today, and where I'm heading to - by means of looking into what archetypal energies are at play in every moment.
Astrologically, what interests me the most are the outer planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. And most particulary; Chiron! Chiron is described by Barbara Hand Clow as a "transforming bridge between the inner and outer planets". It was discovered in 1977, at a time when, supposedly, there was a lot going on in the world that indicated new ways of understanding our consciousness (I wouldn't know, I was just a small child at that time ;D). Alternative healing methods is just one example.
In mythology, Chiron was a teacher, an initiator, a wounded healer, and not least a great astrologer. Chiron rules divination, initiation into "higher consciousness" (contact with the Higher Self or the divine), the pineal gland, crystals, ecology etc, according to Barbara Hand Clow in her excellent book Chiron: transforming bridge between the inner and outer planets. Chiron points to where different dimensions/realities intersect and thus to "holographic attunement"/dimensional attunement.
Just during the last few days, I've realised how much I've been influenced by Chiron lately. And I'm completely awed and amazed. Pluto is transiting the early degrees of Capricorn, has been trining my natal Chiron in Taurus in the 10th house, where also my progressed Midheaven is. I feel so much that I am in some sort of flow, with a heightened intuition (the pineal gland is connected to the third eye chakra), where the insights just keep coming, one thing leads me to another in a beautiful flow... Wanting to make the process visible to others by writing this blog could be the 10th house part of it.
So, dear readers, even if you don't have anything going on with your astrological Chiron right now, I still feel that he is of great importance in these particular times. In my understanding, evolving consciousness and dimensional attunement is pretty much what it's all about, right now.
Wish you love and joy,
