Chiron in Pisces
On Feb. 9th 2011 Chiron went into Pisces. It will stay in this sign until 2019. I call Chiron the ‘little Goldilocks’ of the Zodiac, in that it indicates the need within us to have areas of life “just right”! As Chiron moves through the Zodiac signs it highlights the areas where we are to focus our attention on cleaning, sorting out and increasing efficiency. It is the co-ruler of Virgo, where through analysis, tidying, elimination of clutter we create improvements. In the sign opposite, Pisces, Chiron is in its detriment, a place of weakness. Pisces is very relaxed in its approach, with an ‘anything goes’ attitude. Pisces will tolerate a bad or difficult situation, waiting for change to come, which in time the tide will bring. Pisces is very comfortable postponing tasks and has a deep acceptance of life the way it is. From this you can see how Chiron finds it difficult being in Pisces, therefore over the next 8 years we all need to apply extra effort and awareness to our self development and health programme, de-cluttering our lives where appropriate. Postponement will bring stress and frustration.
For all of us it is important that we know our exact recipe of holistic health and well-Being. Don’t be vague with this – while you may say “I like to exercise in nature” exactly what type of exercise and in what location of nature – a walk along the beach is very different to mountain-biking in the bush. Only you know what really works for you. Try to be as specific as possible with your diet, exercise, emotional source of nourishment, mind stimulation and spiritual practise. Once these are clearly defined the tendency to postpone will be less. It is easier to stay on track when you have guidelines suitable to your individual needs. It is advisable that you review your holistic health programme regularly, fine tuning the areas of wastage and excess.
We will need to have a more concerted effort towards cleaning up the environment, reducing pollution and increasing our methods of recycling.
For those born 1960 to 1968 you have Chiron in Pisces in your birthchart. Chiron has approximately 50 – 51 year cycle. At the time of turning 50 years old you will be having, or have had a Chiron return, in that it is back at the point of origin in your birthchart. This is a time to specifically tidy up your life. Many people go through a health crisis at this time. In the years leading up to 50 it is advisable to de-clutter your life, pruning away wastage, focusing on efficiency. This may be wastage of talents, time, money, resources, emotions or thoughts. In whatever way this is relevant for you it is vital that you stop the leak, repair the situation and aim to have better use of all that is available to you.
With Chiron in Pisces there is the desire to help others less fortunate. My analogy of this is if you saw someone in quicksand the impulse is to bend down to pull them out. But in the process that person will pull you in, they then stand on you to get out and walk off happily. This has left you in the situation of being caught up in someone else’s mess, with the expectation that you will sort it out for them. Obviously over time this is going to be detrimental to your life; bringing you down, leading to exhaustion. The way to rectify this is to start with establishing a solid stance for yourself, be strong, healthy, clear and energised. Then using a rope around a tree you can help the person stuck in the quicksand, pulling them to dry land, they walk off and there is no loss or ill-effect upon you. Remember before you help others you have to be healthy and strong in yourself. I call it being “client number one of the day”. This is no longer a luxury but a necessity.
