This talk explores Chiron’s conjunction with the North Node on February 19th at 16°45′ of Aries. We will look at this conjunction through an archetypal framework and unpack myths associated with Chiron, Aries, and Rahu, the dragon’s head, to help us understand what this aspect could hold for us. In unpacking these myths, we look at themes of individual and collective trauma and how it is expressed through the symbol of the dragon, the quest for the Golden Fleece, and the myth of the wounded healer. These archetypes illuminate key themes about the wounds in Aries that Chiron’s transit is exposing and seeking to heal.
The historical relationship of Chiron to the Lunar Nodes can further illustrate the potential of this transit. Significant events in this cycle include the 2008 financial crisis, the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown, and the Stock Market crash of 1929. Drawing from the past can provide insights into the upcoming conjunction and its potential for healing and growth.
As we bring awareness to the relationship between the wounded healer and the dragon’s head we are confronted by themes of belonging, core wounding, and immortality. We explore the origin of the contemporary ‘hydra poison’ that has affected Chiron in the collective, and what might need to be released to turn our suffering into wisdom.
