How Chiron and I became friends...

I discuss how I have made more peace w/ my own symbolic understanding of the astrological signature known as Chiron.

After years of talking w/ many astrologers and folks about #Chiron, I think I finally have an understanding of it. #astrology
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
My problem w/ what's typically said about #Chiron the wounded Centaur healer is that it's usually too broad...or soft.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
When you look up #Chiron, a comet, not literally a planet, here's typically what you find: http://bit.ly/iRVQeu

Chiron, as a wounded healer, first must face issues of low self-worth and feelings of inadequacy and learn to rise above these issues.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
My problem w/ a statement like that about #Chiron is that I don't know what that means specifically.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
Who doesn't have to face issues of low self-worth and feelings of inadequacy? #astrology #fail
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
Of course, the natural response is that the nature of question of self-worth and feelings of inadq. depend on the sign and house positon.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
But I have a problem w/ that. Low self-worth & feelings of inadequacy are not fixed attributes in all people or at all times. #Chiron
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
Before I was a pre-teen, my feelings of low self-worth blah blah blah only happened when I went to school.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
But #Chiron has nothing to do with the area of my chart that deals w/ school, schooling or learning.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
So I personally had no idea what to make of the low self-worth, blah blah blah. #Chiron
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
@revizion Until sixth grade, I felt like there was kryptonite in the very bricks of the school.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
My other issue w/ #Chiron was what constituted as a wound and how was that different than the wounds that the planets signified?
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
I also had literal challenges to my physical body, having had 18 surgeries by the time I was 10, I knew abt #healing. #Chiron
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
However, I think that's more signified in my chart by #Jupiter and #Saturn. What did #Chiron say that was unique or distinct from them?
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
I mean, I have Saturn in #Aries in the 1st house, using Placidus, and that can signify height issues. I had that honest.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
Then there are the people who seek to make #Chiron into the ruler of #Virgo w/o knowing or understanding how rulership works. #GetAClue
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
I mean, #Chiron is a comet, for gods/goddesses sake. How's it going to rule a sign? #JustStop
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
Anyway, so I became increasingly dismissive, though I really did want to be open. Then I started talking to @JChiron18 on twitter.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
Obviously she's a big #Chiron fan by the name. It helps that she's also a #Centaur (Sag) & a healer (acupuncturist/astrologer in training)
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
Anyway, she had some better ideas about it, but they still didn't congeal...for me.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
Interestingly enough, I'm approached by a neighbor to act out a role in a summer camp that she organizes based on the Percy Jackson books.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
Meanwhile, the #Chiron in the sky now is very close to my #Ascendant, which represents how I navigate my path and identity in life.
Samuel F. Reynolds @sfreynolds
I meet w/ her and she says she wants me to play the role of #Chiron as seen in the books for the summer camp. I burst out laughing.

@sfreynolds Suddenly, I'm hearing a lot about that sort of thing. I haven't had it bad like that. Sounds very Pluto, 8th house.

@sfreynolds How does rulership work? I want a clue. :P
