2.31 Chiron in houses

Chiron in houses

“…see me feel me touch me HEAL ME…” “…woah woah woah It’s magic you know, never believe it’s not so…”

“There’s always something magic there’s always something true and when you really really need it the most that’s when rock and roll dreams come true for you…”

Chiron in the 1st House

One of the most tortured and simultaneously blessed people I know has Chiron on the cusp of the first house. Tortured with a constant niggle from the 12th house of the unseen he has experienced an unusually high amount of events that bring him to lessons of healing – self and many others. And so often has everything seemed to be lost only to find that like magick he turns it all around every time and does well. The emotional insight (and the niggling pain) of his different perspective of the world and the many people he meets never goes away. If your Chiron is in your first house you may be grappling with the cause of alcoholism or gambling, or you may be harmed in some way that teaches you a Magickal lesson and enables you to find a treasure of a key to open doors you never knew existed.

Chiron in the 7th House

Where the first house is you the 7th, the opposite, is your partner. This may be a love partner or a business partner. It may be that this person was in an accident and remains in a state where they are never the same after the accident. You don’t think about them every waking minute but, like a mother does of her child, they are always there in the background of your mind. The partner will open up a different frame of reference through which you can view your world.

Chiron in the 2nd House

In the second house those things you value will come, experientially, under direct scrutiny by you even as you try to avoid perceiving them in any other way than what is culturally acceptable. You will be niggled through reframing your value systems because otherwise things just won’t ever add up. This prodding by Chiron will cause you to remember a variable about how and why you value things (or possess people), which will never allow you to be complacent or glib about your possessions.

Chiron in the 8th House

Chiron in the 8th house can bring experiences with the world of spirit. It can bring experiences with your partner’s possessions (the 8th being opposite the 2nd of your possessions/values). The 8th house is about the merging together of very different things, or different people (partners). Chiron here provides experiences that are subtle enough not to appear Scorpion in its destructive/creative impulse but may indeed be as poisonous or impacting as if it were Pluto here. Sometimes a niggle can be worse than an explosion because of its constancy. The 8th house Chiron will be obvious to you when you look for it. Chiron is subtle but it is very real in manifestation so not usually difficult to locate.

Chiron in the 3rd House

Chiron in the 3rd house can be a sibling who is the source of a constant niggle for you because they subtly affect your way of viewing your world. Because of them you have to find other reasons (logic), or other ways of expression (perhaps they are deaf and you need to learn sign language?). Chiron in the 3rd house can mean an impediment to Mercury’s ears, eyes or speech. Often, when someone loses their sight or hearing their other senses are extended to balance the deficit. Chiron in the 3rd might let in other senses so that your cognition is expanded, or a need to expand in other perceptual areas niggles you until you do.

Chiron in the 9th House

Chiron in the 9th house of publishing, vocation, foreign cultures, long distance travel allows experiences to take place that are significant. The magick of travel is alive and well with Chiron in this house and there will be healing involved in these travels. You may travel only in your mind with Chiron here but your discoveries will be great if you do. Palden’s Chiron “finding needles in haystacks” in the 9th house is about gaining access to many possibilities (or previously thought of impossibilities!)

Chiron in the 4th House

Is your mother or father ill? Is your place of birth a place where a great deal of healing is needed, or takes place? Are you drawn to find home in places that may be very Chironic (experiential in healing)? Does your home niggle at you even as you are away from it during the day? Our home or base in the 4th house may not be the home we grew up in but the place we consider home, where we feel we need to be to grow. This may be an important quest for you even if it seems that something else overrides it.

Chiron in the 10th House

Again, it may be the father or the mother whose healing niggles at you. This time this niggling may affect your public status. Does one of your parents expect you to excel in the public limelight? Or are you drawn to do so for reasons that themselves niggle but manifest from something quite obvious when you dare to look at it? Are you a healer yourself? The 10th house is ‘on show’ and is concerned with systems and order and public reputation and status. Chiron here also may make direct links to the brain and there may be a niggling feeling that something is always getting through to your head that motivates you.

Chiron in the 5th House

Have you ever created a work of Art that itself has healing properties? Why would you? You will resonate to the answer to this question with Chiron in the 5th house. Alternatively, is there a child that you do not see but always you know they are there that affects you? Do you have problems with your heart? Are you able to, magickally, affect the hearts of others, metaphorically speaking, through attracting many experiences of loving relationships into your life?

Chiron in the 11th House

In group situations do you feel uncomfortable, as if you remember an experience from your past that is triggered every time you find yourself in a group again? Are you concerned with social healing? Do you experience your social life in ways that are a bit different to the usual? For example, are there many groups of people who you come into contact with that seem to remind you of what it is that niggles you, toward experience?

Chiron in the 6th House

In the 6th house of health and wholistic becoming Chiron can reveal itself in blatant experiences that do not seem as subtle as they do in the other houses. Remember that Chiron’s niggles will always be able to be found in very real experiences that are viewable. In this house the viewable may incorporate not only the body but also the grounding experiences of soul/mind/spirit. Alternative therapy may remain slightly hidden in its way of behaving but anyone who has gone to an alternative therapist and found fast amazing cure will have experienced an undeniable reality. This is the stuff of the 6th house. You are affected and become more integrated in the 6th house.

Chiron in the 12th House

Psychology, prisons, hospitals, hidden enemies – all these things fall into the domain of the 12th house. The 12th is the subliminal house and the house where we place those things we do not really want in our faces as we journey through each of our days. Chiron will bring experiences of this house to the surface but the underlying niggle will remain an important catalyst that draws you to such experiences. The Hydra’s poison was not curable, however, there is a lot to be said for becoming human!
