Pluto and Chiron: My Journey
Since my Dad passed away, there has been this feeling of transformational healing and a deep peace inside me that, I must admit, did not make sense. Within the whole swirl of emotions I've been feeling, I was not expecting peace and a sense of healing to be among them. So I've been wondering what's up with this energy and decided to check my chart out to help me make sense of it.
Astrological epiphanies come at the strangest times. To the right, is my chart on the day my father passed away. Transitting Pluto in Capricorn is trining my natal Chiron in Taurus. That's a transformational healing aspect if I ever saw one (I think somewhere I've read this aspect referred to as healing power coming from a loss). I've never really felt an intuitive pull to include Chiron in my readings before. I haven't been resistant to including Chiron, but I just didn't see what other astrologers were seeing. I never really knew why before, but now I'm thinking it's because I wasn't ready to understand how Chiron was manifesting in my life. And now that I'm intensely feeling Chiron's energy, I can see how he's been working in my life more clearly now. Like, I can see that when I need to heal from something I tend to turn to writing (Chiron conjunct Mercury) and all things creative (Chiron in the 5th house). I'm sure this aha moment will lead to more lessons about Chiron, especially since Pluto will aspect it a couple more times this year.
