Chiron is known as the wounded healer and the house it is in shows us our fears. The Chiron wound is never completely healed, but it does teach us how to connect with ourselves on a deeper level. Every lesson gives us access to another layer of our wound.
People with Chiron in Gemini feel unintelligent and unable to express themselves fully. They spend a lot of time second guessing what they say and often find themselves saying, “I should have said this and not that.” Gemini’s also spend a lot of time over thinking which causes stress. This may lead to discomfort or pain in the shoulders, arms and hands.
Self-Care – Participating in events such as Ted Talks, leading meditations groups and taking singing lessons help to heal this wound. They are great ways to embrace communication and self- expression.
Crystal – Placing a piece of turquoise on the throat has powerful healing benefits. It also helps to unblock the chi (life force energy) in the vocal cords.
Essential Oil – Spearmint oil is my go-to when I am going to be around many people at social events. Place one drop of oil on the v-spot on your neck. You can also put 1 to 2 drops of spearmint oil in warm or hot water and sip it throughout the day.
The Chiron Wound in Libra relates to meaningless relationships, lack of trust, love, and being cared for. This sign often experiences lower back discomfort due to not feeling supported or loved. They suffer with tight hips or chronic hip pain due to having a challenging time making decisions, or not agreeing with how other people show up in relationships.
Self-Care – The best way to help heal the Chiron on Libra wound is to build a relationship with your Self. This empowers independence, self-love, self-trust and self-compassion.
Crystal – A piece of Labradorite can assist in making big decisions, and expand a Libra’s capacity to realize their limitless potential. When wearing or using this stone the expression “I can’t” doesn’t exist, there is nothing you can’t do or have and that includes meaningful relationships.
Essential Oil – Rosemary oil can help strengthen one’s beliefs and boost confidence so one can stand up for what they believe in. This oil can be applied to the center of the chest and back of the neck to enhance love and compassion.
Aquarius holds its Chiron Wound in connections, feeling weird and not fitting in. When an Aquarius is disconnected from their community, they feel a sense of restriction and a lack of flow which leads to a lack of circulation in their calves and ankles.
Self-Care – Aquarians should schedule weekly or monthly spa days, or try acupressure massage or acupuncture to help relieve tension in the calves and ankles. This is a great way to connect with the community and to fit in as well.
Crystal – Rhodonite! There’s no better crystal to help attract meaningful connections. Wearing a piece of Rhodonite as jewelry to attract connections helps ward off negativity and brings a sense of self-worth and wellbeing.
Essential Oil – Ginger helps you find your center when feeling overwhelmed and balances your mind, body, emotions and spirit. This oil is also emotionally up lifting.
I recommend using high quality essential oils like the ones from Doterra. When applying oils for the first time or if you have sensitive skin, using a carrier oil is suggested.
