Chiron represents your Way of Wounding and Healing. Its placement in Sign and House reveals where we have our spiritual wound that we must work to heal in this lifetime.

Consider a person with Chiron in Aries in the 6th House. Aries is a Fire Sign. Fire’s expression is pioneering, creative, and exploratory. In Aries, the Element acts independently, heroically, and aggressively. So, the key phrase is “Your Way of Wounding and Healing manifests through your independent and heroic quest for and attraction to maverick and individualistic service for others.” In short, they are wounded when they cannot act independently in their day-to-day work because they work for someone or a company that wants to micromanage them.

Chiron expresses itself through a Sign and acts most powerfully in an area of your life by House. This section will look at all 12 Sign and House placements for Chiron. It is important to make a clear distinction between the Sign and House. While it is correct that each Zodiac Sign rules a particular House, it is vital not to conflate the two.

Chiron in Aries is not the same as Chiron in the 1st House even though Aries rules the first House. A person with Chiron in Aries has a Way of Wounding and Healing devoted to independent and maverick behavior regardless of House placement. Someone with Chiron in the 1st House has a Way of Wounding and Healing devoted to figuring oneself out and working on identity issues over the course of his or her lifetime.
