Sorrow is Knowledge: Chiron in the Chart and by Transit

“But Grief should be the Instructor of the wise;
Sorrow is Knowledge: they who know the most
Must mourn the deepest o’er the fatal truth,
The Tree of Knowledge is not that of Life.”

Lord Byron, Manfred

Why do we bother with Chiron in a chart? He’s not even a proper planet and how much influence does this wandering, wounded maverick have on our charts? In my experience of the past few years – a lot. There is more to Chiron than just the wound which does not heal. In this webinar I will look at Chiron natally, explore that mixture of personal and collective hurt that he brings to us and examine what happens as he transits the personal planets of our charts. We will also consider the meaning of Chiron in Aries.

How can we learn to cope with the suffering and loss that Chiron can often bring? Is acceptance the hardest word for us to utter and can it ever bring about true healing?
