CHIRON: A DISCARDED GREEK GOD REDISCOVERED © Copyright by Hilary Bond PhD.

This is a rich and utterly wonderful exploration of Chiron – the gentle wise Centaur, mentor and healer. Carl Kerenyi called him “the inventor of the art of healing.” He resided in his cave on Mount Pelion, a wondrous area abundant in healing plants and herbs. He was a mentor to a number of eminent heroes and he is an archetype that guides our souls to heroic greatness. The symbolism of linden tree is explained beautifully by the author; I was especially touched by this part because there is a huge linden tree right in front of my window.

Chiron, a possible comet or planetoid in our solar system, with an amazing elliptical orbit; which travels between Saturn and Uranus; but also can be found as close to us as Jupiter and as far out as Neptune;  was rediscovered on November 1st, 1977 by Charles Kowal.  Kowal  immediately called Chiron a “maverick”, because of this elliptical orbit.  Zane Stein, Barbara Hand Clow and Melanie Reinhart are the best known of the first researching astrologers, who sought to analyse this  steadfast, healing, mentoring Greek God. The immortal  Chiron’s major concern, in his myths, is to accomplish his own brand of mentoring (with unfailing success), equipping heroes with the strength and abilities needed for their lives ahead.

    Excellent article. Thanks for re-posting. I’m sure I would’ve missed it. I too have Chiron prominent in my Western natal chart– in Pisces on the Ascendant. Since my focus has been with the Vedic system, I never did learn what Chiron could mean to me personally. The rich details of the myth and history in this article provides a great foundation. Thank you

  2. I appreciate learning more and more about Chiron. Chiron is close to my ascendant and almost exactly opposes my Ruler Uranus. Certain transits, particularly from Saturn to natal Chiron had resulted in physical injuries and calamities, particularly as a youth and young adult. I really embrace the Chiron archetype personally and am glad our friend Jung created it. In the spirit of synchronicity I want to show you these links. I hope you will find the symbology interesting in connection to your recent posts 🙂
