In previous posts, we talked about Chiron and its profound influence on our wounds and healing (I have a highlight on Chiron for more information). But did you know that in modern astrology, Chiron is the secondary ruler of Virgo?
Although Virgo is ruled by Mercury, it is said that there are deep connections between the Virgin and the Wounded Healer, Chiron. Because Virgo represents our fragmented souls and our journey to becoming whole, it only makes sense that Chiron’s healing journey ties into Virgo’s soul-searching mission towards purity.
When we are wounded, there is a belief that we must fix something within us in order to feel complete again – Virgo shares a similar philosophy in that we are all fragmented, imperfect, impure, and need improvement. Virgo is born into this world always feeling as if they are missing something, but as babies we are all born pure and whole – the fragmentation begins as we progress through the human journey and have certain experiences that leave lasting impressions on us, which is of Chiron’s influence.
Chiron signifies our major wounds, and when you analyze your birth chart, Chiron shows us hints of where and when the wounding happens. We can also look at Virgo, Mercury, or our 6th house for further clues on how we cope and deal with our pain. Where Chiron symbolizes our wounds and the path to healing, Virgo, Mercury, and our 6th house symbolize the habits and unconscious programming in response to our wounds.
Virgo is also associated with health and self-care, which fits in like the missing puzzle piece of Chiron’s pain: the more we focus on our own needs, we are able to identify our wounds and understand how to heal them. Virgo and Chiron work together like the yin and yang of our karmic wounding and healing.
The astrological key to understanding your healing journey is not only through Chiron, but through Virgo as well. If you aren’t sure how to read your birth chart to gather more information, I offer a 45-minute reading focused solely on your path to healing. Click here to book your session.
