Grace From Above: Neptune and Chiron
Years ago, I was called in to do a reading for a man and
his wife. They were newly married and had 2 young children. The man was going
through a powerful
This is not a joke. He was drawn to the glamour of the Strip. Too many TV shows. Willing to abandon his wife and two young kids, I was unable to stop him. What happens in Vegas…
Unfortunately, this is an extreme reaction to
What caused this type of behavior?
The current planetary configuration clearly shows the great tension between Uranus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. You’ll also notice, outside of this giant triangle (T-square) lies Chiron and Neptune traveling together in early Pisces. That is this month’s story.
First we must understand what Neptune and Chiron are like, so we can get an idea of what they are doing together in the mystical sign of Pisces.
Those in tune with the finer levels of spirit welcome
Here is how
With many Westerners, who don’t understand that heaven is
within us and still are looking for some throne with a man on it above the
stratosphere, many surprises are in store for them.
We are all boundless and infinite beings but many of us are
afraid to death to own such an outrageous thought system. So,
Therefore, the common Western experience of

However, if the same client is very spiritual and quite tuned to the finer vibrations within, it can be a heavenly delight and is indicative that they have arrived at a point where they are ready to surrender to God’s Will. Dr. Wayne Dyer says that there is only one moment in your life of true free will, i.e., the moment you decide to give in to God’s will. Dr. Carl Jung said, “free will is gladly doing what you must.”
This may sound heavy-duty, or corny, or whatever evasive word you can think of, but that’s the truth. It’s where we came from – and eventually where we are going back to. The rest has been a dream.
Now, to Chiron:
Chiron, the son of Saturn, was a Centaur much like the Sagittarian Archer who was half-horse and half-man. The Centaur breed was a rowdy, rather crude bunch, but Chiron was clearly way ahead of his class. He was a master healer, educator, the first astrologer, and was very dedicated to his soul’s mission. Chiron was injured by a stray poisoned-arrow launched by Heracles that injured his leg. His wound never healed. He was an immortal and had to eventually beg Zeus to let him die because the pain was so unbearable. In your natal chart his placement represents “your wound.”
The area where Chiron is deposited in your chart symbolizes the pain you’ve had to endure and possibly signals the era when you will overcome this wound. Chiron rules where you tend to help others but are somehow unable to heal yourself. The conquering of the Chiron wound reveals the hidden gift within the wound. This is why people with very strong Chiron placements in their chart make great healers. Chiron’s new rulership of Virgo explains why so many of them end up in the nursing field and in general, why they care so much about whatever work they doing. Virgos are usually obsessed with the quality of their work. Before, Virgos were called perfectionistic. Now, I see them much more as purists – Chironic people care.
Chiron comes from the Greek spelling, Kheiron, which means to work with one’s hands. This is why so many Virgos end up highly skilled as craftsmen, carpenters, or builders. Also, many end up in the field of CHIROpractic.
Besides Chiron’s symbolizing the wound and the healer we still are discovering a lot about this planet/asteroid because it was only discovered in late 1977. Two months later, I became an astrologer “out of the blue.” Chiron also represents the bridge between the inner and outer planets since its exaggerated orbit lies between earthly Saturn and wildly-eccentric Uranus. We have much to learn about this elusive, irregular wanderer.
One more note: Chiron completes its initial orbit when all of us are approximately 51 years of age. If you give it some thought, you may very well see how at that age you had a very big turning point in terms of your “life-long” wound, and possibly its healing.
Finally, we see that for the past 3 years,
Now, we have Chiron and Neptune traveling closely together
AND IN PISCES.
There is no predicting who will win this face-off.
But, we all surely will lose as long as one person is denied health care.
This is another reason we are seeing the
Astrologically we are under phenomenal pressure from the Cardinal T-square of Uranus and Jupiter opposite Saturn; and all making tight squares to Pluto in Capricorn. I have talked much about this foursome in past issues ad nauseum.
Now, magically, we see Chiron and Neptune together
This is NO coincidence.
It is almost as if the angels are interceding for us. Really. Think of the odds of
these two being together in Pisces (remember we’ve only known about Chiron for
34 years) with
For Neptune and Chiron to show up now….is unbelievable.
As I’ve said before, the pressure from the existing Plutonian T-square is almost impossible for any entity to endure. And we can feel it – we see it – we can’t find jobs – people are hurting – the country is falling apart – we can’t deny it – the news is more and more insane everyday.
We can keep playing this injurious, toxic blame game if we want to, but that will surely lead to our demise.
This is why
Simply put, the power of
We’re more sensitive, and that’s good.
We’re more sensitive, and that’s not so good.
Mixing Neptune and Chiron gives us “spiritual healing.” That is a direct translation. It means that for all of us, the individuals, families, communities, country, & globe. You cannot misinterpret that. That is what it means. We can misuse it, and I’m sure some will. We will see many “false prophets” and phony healers, but let’s not get lost from the real power here.
These two powerful planets are here to ignite those high qualities within us.
Psychic abilities are skyrocketing! Psychics and healers
are coming out of the woodwork.
Channels are opening up at an alarming rate because we’ve
always had these abilities. We’re transcending physical space as a known limit.
We’re accepting the holographic, quantum world which has just been renewed. We
can no longer solve the world’s problems with bombs (if we ever did) …
Now is the time for our higher selves to rule.
Now, mix this with Chiron and we’re going to see some of the greatest healers you’ve ever seen! This does not only apply to spiritual healing. You are going to start to see phenomenal advances in healing via Western Medicine too. Along with the fact that hospitals are going to start allowing more alternative types of healing as they are doing now commonly with Reiki practitioners, this whole field will expand to heal the whole person. This is becoming common thought now from our changing collective mindset. Sure beats being bled… We will now cure by intention alone.
It is not far-out! Nothing, nothing could be more
The combination of Neptune, Chiron, and Pisces is an astounding gift of grace from the heavens. Never before will you see more miracles. Never before will you see more miracles seem so common. After all, if there is only One of us. Where is the miracle? It’s all a mind-game. How can there be “miracles” when there’s only one of us?
What I have clearly noticed in my brief study of Chiron is that it has much to do with your destiny, fate, and what you’re obsessed with. What you HAVE to do! Now, more than ever, you’re going to see martyrs coming out of hiding. The phenomenal spiritual urges of Neptune/Chiron/Pisces are going to inspire many people beyond their earthly training (programming.) They won’t care anymore; they will just have to take the spiritual leap. Many are feeling the certainty of their spiritual path. I can’t begin to tell you how many people are coming to me to help them find or confirm their particular way through. And people know it! They are in tune with it. They’ve suspected it for a long time. It’s such a shame that the human race has not been more supportive of such initiatives until now – but at least the time is here now.
When I do workshops or readings about finding one’s life direction, it has resulted in something quite surprising. The investigation seems to always result in two parts. 1) Finding out where someone is blocked and talking over suggestions for becoming unblocked, and 2) Then, from the clearer mountain top, we can get a better view of where your true direction lies.
Chiron is your life direction!
That’s why its symbol, or glyph, is shaped like a key
Many are feeling this now. This is not an illusion. This seems like an illusion because we’ve been so dulled for so long. This is the real deal which is why it’s miraculous, especially since it’s occurring JUST BEFORE 2012!
I did the chart the other day for the end of the Mayan
Make no mistake about this.
We are in trouble as a race.
What we are seeing is intervention from on high.
I have little else to say, and words kill. Why do we commonly think that God was very active in our lives 2,000 years ago but not now? It’s time we all wake up. We’ve been killing ourselves and each other for too long.
Thank you to Neptune and Chiron for showing up now. It won’t be a picnic with what the other major 4 planets are doing. Quite the opposite, those 4 are going to make it very chaotic for a long time. There will be many hills and valleys.
This is our time now to get it right.
You may like this or not, but you’ve just started to hear
about one world, a new world, a new world order. There are many
arguments on both sides, but I’m here to tell you that: Neptune WILL NOT
respect national boundaries (or any other type of boundary.) No way. Boundaries
are mythical and are results of consensus thinking. They’re not real and
Let us hope that if we start moving in such a direction, that it will be for the betterment of all of us.
There is a significant lack of aspects this month due to the fact that so many planets are bunched up in Aries.
5/3 New Moon 12°_31’ 2:51a – The Taurean New Moon will be a very welcome sight with 5 other planets in impulsive Aries. Taurus will ground those restless energies and make us feel like battening down the hatches. Aries energy can be very good as it renews us in an uninhibited way. Taurus follows right behind and deepens the human experience. Slow down now. Appreciate what you have. Get your priorities straight and value yourself. That’s Taurus.
5/17 Full Moon 26°e13’ 7:09a – This Full Moon will be extremely powerful, and not because it’s in Scorpio either. It will form the basis of T-square to transiting Chiron and Neptune. This will be a very emotional time. We’ll be asking ourselves, “What is it all about? Why am I putting out all of this effort if I’m not getting back a great feeling of being alive and closeness to others?” That’s what this is about. It’s time to take stock and make the necessary adjustments necessary to match our new insights (Full Moon) at this time.
Sun enters Gemini 5:21a – Every year the ingress of the Sun into Gemini
is usually a welcome time where we all lighten up a good deal. This year will
have an added dimension. Anytime a major planet such as the Sun enters a new
sign it triggers all planets sitting in the early degrees of all the other 11
New ideas will come about on how we can bring fresh new spiritual vision to our old world. This should be a very welcome period where new ideas will pay of handsomely.
Everybody, “Into the pool!”
