Chiron Reading

In this reading, we explore the archetype of Chiron in your natal chart and in your embodied experience.

Chiron is the centaur of Greek myth, weaving together the experiences of  man and beast, wounded one and healer, abandoned child and nurturing mentor.   

Chiron is also the namesake of a planetoid between Saturn & Uranus.  At 49-50 years of age, Chiron completes a full cycle through the zodiac and our natal chart. This is a time of deep integration.  

Reframe your early childhood patterning, and discover where Chiron is inviting you to embrace precious but abandoned parts of self, in order to deepen into love!

Explore your Chironic vision and wound (they are always kindred and connected), your ‘Loyal Soldier‘ survival strategies, and where Life is inviting you to weave your deepest vulnerabilities into powerful medicine.

"Thanks you so much. You have captured my story precisely as I have told you. You have woven it in beautifully with the Astrological and Archetypal aspects. It is a pleasure to read!"
"WOW this is so incredible what you’ve put together. Finally I get to understand my journey and the gifts of it. Thank you so so much"
"OMG Grace, I just read through your report and it is AMAZING. Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the care you have put into the report, and yes it makes a lot of sense."

Archetype

Our experiences in utero, being born, and of our early childhood environment shape some of our deepest longings and vulnerabilities. We spend a lifetime alchemising these often difficult or traumatic experiences.

Chiron as a point on your natal chart represents a ‘tender spot’ within the self-definition, a place which cannot be strengthened through self-talk, outer achievements or outside validation.  It might also be described as the raw feeling of being too exposed, too vulnerable, permanently broken or somehow defeated.” (from astrologer Adam Gainsburg)

The astrology of Chiron offers us a lens through which we can connect our small story to the greater weaving of the cosmos.

Sacred Wound

A wound implies an original vision.  We come into this world with some kind of knowing how things could be, especially in terms of love and connection.

The wound occurs when our vision is lost, hidden, discarded, undermined, scattered and shattered in our interactions with our families and the world we find ourselves in.

We render our wound sacred when we welcome home these excruciatingly vulnerable and endangered parts of ourselves, by feeling all the feelings they invoke in us, by hearing their stories and needs, by holding our witness perspective and practicing radical self-acceptance.  Truly a lifework!

Spiritual Awakening

These are powerful words from Jean Houston in her book The Search for the Beloved: “In times of suffering, when you feel abandoned, perhaps even annihilated, there is occurring – at levels deeper than your pain – the entry of the sacred, the possibility of redemption.  Wounding opens the doors of our sensibility to a larger reality, which is blocked by our habituated and conditioned point of view.  Consciousness that had been previously well-robotised and trained to the consensual perspective of our particular culture is excruciatingly sensitized and has a vastly extended sensorium.  Pathos gives us eyes and ears to see and hear what our normal eyes and ears cannot.” And from this place of seeing and hearing, of feeling all the feelings, of “doing a Rumi” and welcoming them all in… … from this place we are the Wounded Healer, the Embodied Teacher, sharing a humble yet extraordinarily potent medicine with the world.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

~ Rumi

Astrological Rite of Passage

Our Chiron Return at around 50 years of age represents a powerful call to include/integrate and transcend the stories of pain and vulnerability that have shaped us and the corresponding defensive, protective postures which continue to constrain our full potential.

In a Chiron Reading, we pull out key dates from your life to date, based on Chiron’s orbit, and explore what common themes and stories are present.

The point of this work to understand more clearly what life is asking you to embrace right now.  By weaving these parts of yourself back in, by welcoming all the parts of yourself back home, you are more equipped to love those around you, to trust your path, and to be open and responsive to Life’s nudges.

"My session with Grace was so clarifying in so many ways, especially why I had been struggling with this transitional time in my life."
"Thank YOU for all the work you did for me. It gave me quite a bit to think about and a lot of peace!!! More peace than I have felt in years. So thank you again."

"I came on thinking Grace was going to tell me how it was but instead she drew it out of me very skilfully."
