Donna Cunningham says: My long-time friend and colleague, Joyce Mason of the Radical Virgo blog has become Skywriter’s resident expert on Chiron. Her articles and comments on the subject are much appreciated here. Her ebooks, Chiron and Wholeness: A Primer and Poems to Heal the Healer: The 12 Chiron Signs are available on Joyce’s website and in the sidebar of her Radical Virgo blog.
In her Question and Answer session last week, Joyce generously shared her knowledge of Chiron placements in the natal chart. Today, she’s agreed to answer your questions about Chiron transits. (If you haven’t read Joyce’s introduction to this topic, however, that’s a good place to start: Chiron Cycles and Life’s Purpose.)
In this Q&A, you can ask about any transit of Chiron to a natal planet—including aspects to itself in the Chiron cycle. What do you want to know or share about your Chiron transits?
This exchange will give us a chance to see some general themes of Chiron transits, as well as appreciating how specific Chiron can be to our personal need for getting to wholeness.
Example: One woman, during her Chiron Return, became a “dog magnet.” The message was surely about Chiron’s dual nature and her need to operate from the purest, most “instinctual” side of her spiritual nature.
As mentioned in the last Q&A, I am interested in gathering personal anecdotes of all kinds about Chiron, including transits, for my book in progress on Chiron. Here’s an opportunity to share your experiences and/or ask me questions about them, starting in this Q &A exchange. See Chiron Research for details.
Note: I’ll consider your Q&A exchange open to use for my research unless you note otherwise and thank you in advance for being part of the volunteer team.
The Q&A rules—the same as for other sessions in our series:
- One question per person per session
- Make them questions we all can learn from.
- No specific and detailed questions about your own chart
- No cross communication between readers this time
- No long personal histories this time—save them for the Chiron Research group
- Per agreement with Joyce, only 25 questions this time
Chiron Transits for the next 6 months: 1/1/11 27 AQ; 2/1 29AQ; 3/1 1 PI;4/1 3PI; 5/1 4PI; 6/1 5PI stationary; 7/1 5PI RX; 8/1 4PI RX.
UPDATE: After 4 hours and 25 questions, the comment section is closed. To see our readers’ excellent questions and Joyce’s detailed and carefully thought-through answers, scroll down below this post. Perhaps someone has touched on the question you would have asked.
