‘I Build a Lighted House & Therein Dwel’

Wednesday, June 24th, Chiron turns stationary retrograde (we turn inward) at 21.33 degrees Pisces. We usually speak of “retrograde” when referring to Mercury. But all planets retrograde. Next month in July Venus retrogrades. What is Chiron retrograde? Chiron represents the wound within all of us. Wounds have purpose. They sensitize us; make us aware of pain and suffering. Through our wounds we develop compassion. Through compassion we become whole (holy) again. Chiron helps develop these states of consciousness. Everyone carries a wound. Everyone carries family wounds (family astrology tracks the astrological “DNA” through generations).

Chiron wounds are deep within. We’re often not aware of them until Chiron retrogrades. Then the wounds (through pain, hurt, sadness, suffering) become apparent. They seem to break us open emotionally, psychologically. Painful events from the past are remembered. They are brought to the present for healing. Through experiencing, talking about and deeply feeling what is hurting us, healing takes place. We begin to understand and bring healing to others.

Chiron retrograde in Pisces means (sensitivity to) our suffering helps “save the world.” Chiron is retrograde until November 17th (16 degrees Pisces). Locating 16 – 22 Pisces degrees in our astrology charts helps us understand the area of life the wounds appear.

All week Jupiter and Venus move closer together in the sky. They meet in Leo at the full moon, Cancer solar festival, Wednesday, July 1st. The Cancer keynote is, “I build a lighted house and therein dwell.” The Soul’s light has finally penetrated the “womb” of matter. The New Group of World Servers is to radiate this light.

At the end of each sign are keywords to use and remember during the Chiron retrograde.
