Chiron goes retrograde this year in the midst of five planetary retrogrades. In many ways, it will give it a unique advantage to heal different parts of a person’s life. Physical health, life’s priorities, questions of the subconscious mind, repressed emotions, and communication work will all take center stage.

Chiron will address all of these areas of life while focusing on its main goal—to heal the healer.

If you are a healer, you may find yourself drained sometimes by overworking yourself and depleting your energy. There is always someone who needs healing, but what about you?

A healer’s sometimes inability and sometimes unwillingness to heal his or herself is a common occurrence.

Comet Chiron was named after a situation just like this. It was named after centaur Chiron from Greek mythology who could heal anyone—but himself.

Chiron retrograde finally gives you this ability. You will be able to access and release spiritual wounds, whether the wounds are of your own making or some you picked up from other people.

Besides the energetic wounds, they can also be mental or emotional. Healers do suffer sometimes from low self-esteem and feeling incomplete. Chiron will have you face these negative feeling and fears to overcome them once and for all.

What is even more exciting about Chiron today is that it transitioned into Aries on April 18th, 2018 and will stay there till April 14th, 2027. What this means is nine years of spiritual detox leading to enormous expansion for the whole human community.

Chiron in Aries points out where you are experiencing an identity crisis. During Chiron retrograde, this will become evident and easy to heal. Afterward it goes direct and stays in Aries for many years. This time period will help you recognize your true self, your potential, your mission, and your gifts as a healer.

It will awaken many shamans, energy workers, and healers—just what this planet is in dire need right now.

Various predictions about Chiron and other cosmic influences say that years of 2023 and 2024 will bring out an exponential number of spiritual awakening, spiritual movements, and communities in the world.

If you are one of the people born between 1969 and 1977, years between 2018 and 2027 will mark your Chiron return. It happens at the age of 50-51, and can be often felt at 49.

Chiron return is an important date in a person’s life, which marks the end of a more materialistic pursuit of physical needs including money and career, and shifts the focus to spiritual evolution.~
