Chiron in Synastry

In synastry, Chiron contacts indicate that healing can be achieved through your union. The planet person may (inadvertently) push Chiron’s buttons, or vice-versa, reminding him of past hurts he has been carrying throughout his life. Indeed, Chiron’s energy is both healing, and painful. The Chiron person has the ability to cleanse the planet person’s wound and guide them away from what has been hurting them.

Chiron-Sun: The Sun person learns much from the Chiron person, and perhaps discovers her life purpose. Harmonious aspects indicate mutual trust, respect, compassion, and love. The Chiron person supplies understanding and compassion that can heal the painful issues related to the Sun person’s identity or childhood. In the process, Chiron is able to heal his own wounds. Hard aspects, on the other hand, are more difficult. Overcoming old hurts are likely to occur if this synastry aspect is present. The couple may inadvertently contribute to further emotional pain.

Chiron-Moon Aspects: Chiron and the Moon are both sympathetic planets. When one person’s Chiron makes a harmonious aspect to another person’s Moon, the relationship acts as a comforting, nurturing avenue for mutual healing. Hard aspects between Chiron and the Moon in synastry indicate that the Chiron person is likely to trigger past painful memories of the Moon person. The Moon person’s reaction to these hurts may surprise the both of them! The Moon person’s job is to understand that these emotional reactions are symptomatic of past hurts, and to move forward.

Chiron-Venus: Many astrology websites state this aspect is an indication of “true love”. Harmonious aspects indicate the couple has the ability to heal each other from the pains of previous relationships. This is a strong, loving bond, which serves to cleanse them of past, damaging relationship habits and embrace true love. The planet person is soothing to the Chiron person, while the Chiron person helps the Venus person discover the benefits of a loving relationship. The hard aspects are more difficult to handle. In this case, healing does not come as easily. Together, the couple will have to work through past hurts in order to move forward. They may inadvertently remind each other of past relationship difficulties.

For example, I was in a short-term relationship with a man whose Venus conjuncts my Chiron. I reminded him very much of a past girlfriend, with whom he had a painful, tumultuous relationship. In fact, I even looked a bit like her! There were so many similarities between her and I. Our conjunction is in Gemini, so through conversation, I helped him deal with the hurts he had been holding on to. However, I ultimately ended up hurting him in the same way she did.

Chiron-Mars: Harmonious aspects indicate healing through sex and joint action. Past hurts in regards to sexuality and aggression are healed through this union. Hard aspects between Chiron and Mars in synastry can be difficult to handle. Through conflict, Mars person may (inadvertently) re-open Chiron’s past wounds and hurts. Chiron may feel the Mars person is unsympathetic and cruel, while the Mars person may find the Chiron person overly-sensitive. Chiron may also (inadvertently) re-open Mars’ wounds, as they relate to sexuality, drive, and action.

Chiron-Jupiter: The harmonious aspects between Chiron and Jupiter in synastry signify that the couple will be able to heal one another from past hurts, and gain understanding into their relationship habits. This indicates the two have compatible values. The Jupiter brings optimism and good will to the Chiron person. The hard aspects are a bit trickier to deal with. In this case, Jupiter may magnify Chiron’s past hurts.

Chiron-Saturn: In the case of harmonious aspects, the Saturn person brings structure and discipline to the Chiron person’s life, which will help them deal with and heal from past wounds. The hard aspects indicate the Saturn person has, or at least desires, a great deal of control over the relationship. Both parties are likely to feel their own limitations in each other’s presence. Chiron may make Saturn feel inadequate, while Chiron may feel their inner healing is blocked or restricted by the Saturn person. Chiron may wish to heal the Saturn person’s wounds and attend to his needs, but Saturn does not let that happen.

Chiron-Neptune: Harmonious aspects between Chiron and Neptune in synastry indicate mutual compassion, unconditional love, and understanding between the partners. The hard aspects between Chiron and Neptune indicate that fear and insecurity plague the relationship. Past hurts affect the couple; each person may spend more time nursing their own wounds, rather than looking at the other person’s point of view. The Neptune person may feel confused as to why the Chiron person reacts negatively to her actions. Chiron may feel that Neptune misunderstands where he is coming from.
