Chiron is a confusing planet, it is the wounded-healer that has to go through pain in order to gain information and experience so you can help others (if you want to). Depending in which of the 12 houses your Chiron is placed.
Once defined as an asteroid, Chiron is now claimed to be a comet. However, in astrology it has been a recently added planet, it does bring a significant understanding of the astrology chart as a whole.
Chiron defines ones wounds and hurt, something that has developed itself in your past or if you believe in past lives, it could derive from there too. You came into this life with a certain pain that is hard to define.
There are matters that for others hurt, but for the Chiron owner, it outrageously stings like a few knives. It is something out of our control that is unfair, undeniable and the only way forward is to work with it. Before you know how to work with the planet Chiron, let’s have a look what Chiron does through the houses.
Chiron in the houses
What does Chiron mean to you and what placement indicates what for you? Combine your house with the sign it is positioned in and get the most accurate information.
Chiron in the first house/ Aries
Chiron in the first house or in Aries defines a wound in your self-image. You could feel that people will not accept you for who you are and how you present yourself.
It could be that you do not accept your appearance, physically or mentally and it is up to you to work with these emotional wound. In order to work with your Chiron, dare to create your own personality and bring it forward.
Once you have worked with your self-image, you can help others in these areas if you want to. Think about a hair dresser, dermatologist, fashion stylist or therapist. Keep your mind and options open, and remember your attitude creates where you want to go further. Aries would love to be first and take action, your wound might stop you from doing so. Be proud of who you are, because you are beautiful!
Chiron in the second house / Taurus
With Chiron in your second house or in Taurus, your wounds all have to do with your self-worth. Taurus loves to spoil itself and have all the material needs they want. When you have Chiron in your second house, you feel as that could never happen to you. Luxury is something that can barely be achieved. It could be that you were born in a poor family, or that you were deprived from materialism.
Do not worry dear soul, understanding that money is an energy that can be attracted is a genuine healing. Work with you wounds and understand why it seems so difficult for you to attract and see money as a benefit, not evil.
Money can do great things for you. Furthermore, you are worth so much more than you think, hanging a price card to your services is not more than normal. Your materials will arrive once you see that you deserve just as much as everyone else, if not more. When you have worked with this wound, you could help others with their self-worth and how to make money.
Chiron in the third house / Gemini
With Chiron in the third house and/ or in Gemini, you could feel ashamed of expression, speech and/ or writing. Besides, that the third house has to do with your siblings. It could be that you have some disagreements, or they are outshining you making you feel the lesser sibling.
Gemini is all about gathering and processing information. When your wound is here, you might doubt yourself and feel like you are not capable of learning and you hesitate your intellect is good at all. Short trips might feel like you are packing for a round trip around the world, but really it is your resistance in going to that short trip.
With your Chiron here, make sure that you speak kind words to yourself, practice with keeping up your own journal and go on that course. This will feel like a high mountain, but once achieved you feel there is nothing that can stop you.
Chiron in the 4th house / Cancer
When Chiron is positioned in your 4th house or in Cancer you might have nurturing issues. When you were little, it could be that one or more of your parents did not nurture you enough and you became the helper in the family or took over the roles of one of your family members, lacking the understanding of receiving and being just a child.
With this position people tend to overly give until there is no energy left within themselves. The key to healing is forgiving your family, accept your roots and work on your self-love. Do not give all your energy away, you have to learn how to give to yourself as well. Then when you have enough you can help others.
Chiron in the 5th house / Leo
Leo is the sign that would like to be praised, they are loyal creatures that are proud of everything they do. They love to be noticed and when Chiron is in Leo or in the 5th house, you feel as if creative expression is blocked and/ or not valued. You feel unseen and unnoticed, as if you do not deserve a spot in people’s time.
Make sure you love yourself and work on your creativity. Do not doubt your own projects and allow yourself to enjoy your spare time. You do not have to feel guilty for praising yourself and spending time on YOU. Furthermore, this is the house of children and you could deprive yourself from the wish of children as you believe you are not good enough to take care of them.
This block is conscious or unconscious, but by taking care of children or accepting them, you could work with the wound and be more open to have a child of your own.
Chiron in the 6th house / Virgo
Virgo is the sign of analytics, precision, criticism, service and hard work. With Chiron in the 6th house, you might feel as if routines are a drag. The job you have to execute every day feels too much and you prefer to avoid routines all together.
Not only your routines, but health might be an issue. Make sure to eat healthy and treat yourself with all you deserve. The other extreme is you eat super healthy and you are afraid something might happen to your body.
Balance your life and work with these pains. If you work with the house here, you might end up becoming a therapist yourself or a life coach.
Chiron in the 7th house / Libra
With Chiron in the 7th house or Libra you feel a true burden in your relationships. The burden could weight so much that you avoid it all together. When I talk about relationships, this is all about romantic relationships and business partnerships. In this house you create any collaboration or contract with another person. It is a commitment on a serious level.
Libra wants to see everything in balance and with Chiron in Libra you are afraid of this balance. Try to avoid putting a name on commitments, so slowly you understand that commitments do not necessarily have to be painful. If you get enough knowledge about relationships, you could be a relation therapist yourself.
Chiron in the 8th house / Scorpio
The 8th house stands for sexuality, taboos, the occult, joint finances and rebirth. With Scorpio as its ruler you have a wound in diving deeper below the surface as you might be afraid what you find. With Chiron in the 8th house you might have issues with your sexuality due to abuse or negative experiences.
Another possible outcome is a wound toward the occult and in some cases threats from the other side could instill this fear. Work with your sexuality as inner part of your inner power and do not be afraid to commit to someone on an intimate level. Once you overcome the fear of intimacy and you embrace your sexuality, you can become a sex therapist/ healer.
Chiron in the 9th house / Saggitarius
When Chiron is in your ninth house or in Sagittarius, you might be less optimistic in life. You do not believe a higher power can save you. You feel as if it will not bring you anywhere. Talking about places, this is the house of far-away places. You might feel uncomfortable leaving your home for a far-away place. You might prefer to stay nearby or not travel at all.
Try to be open-minded and do your own research and make up a belief system that works for you. Divine comes in many forms and you can form it in a way that you feel comfortable. Dare to take that long trip and heal yourself from the silent fear of travelling far. Studying broad subjects, might seem like nonsense to you and you prefer something concrete. Heal your connection with broad knowledge and the divine and you will be fine.
Chiron in the 10th house / Capricorn
The 10th house or the Midheaven in astrology is all about how you present yourself in the outside world. Capricorn loves hard work and with Chiron here you feel as if you are not good enough to present yourself out there. You want to be unnoticed and unseen, while working hard on the background.
It could be that one of your parents was too much of authority and never taught you how to be your own authority. Working with a goal and a strict plan may feel uncomfortable and chaos might take over. Try to plan with ease and do not take yourself too seriously, being authority or in the spotlight, does not mean it is the end of the world. The stage is yours, if you overcome this fear you can help others with e.g. public speaking.
Chiron in the 11th house / Aquarius
When you have Chiron in Aquarius or the 11th house you might feel as being accepted in a group feels as a mountain you need to climb. Only then acceptance will come. However, this is a fear from within and being in a group could be healing. Start in a place from speaking about how you feel in a safe place.
The 11th house is all about groups and organizations and how you are a part of that. Aquarius known as the social sign of intellect likes to be part of groups. With Chiron in it you feel your wisdom / intellect is questioned by people and speaking up in groups might be terrifying. It is hard for you to allow people in your life and/ or you might attract people in your life that are healers or need healing. Go to groups of healers and/ or follow a Reiki course in order to work with Chiron in a positive way.
Chiron in the 12th house / Pisces
The 12th house in astrology and the last house reigned by Pisces is the house where everything dissolves into the mass consciousness. Isolation, service and a connection to the divine is part of this house. When your Chiron is situated here you do not feel like being alone and you feel disconnected from the mass consciousness.
You might not like hospitals or institutions of healing. Own your wound and try to help people bit by bit by means of service. Start spending some time alone in peace and make it more comfortable with yourself. Write down your dreams and learn how to empathize the people around you. When you have learned to dive into the subconsciousness, you could become a shaman or healer.
How to work with your planet Chiron?
The effects of the planet Chiron is not something that goes way (like Saturn and its karmic lessons), the wound stays. It is more on how you deal with it. Some things in life we have little grasp on and the only way we can move forward is to accept it as a part of your life and work with that pain. Are you afraid of your femininity heal it and work with a woman circle.
Are you afraid of commitment in relationships? Then overcome this and help others. The best therapist and/ or teacher is someone who has been through it themselves.
I hope this is helpful for you. If you would like to know more about your natal chart do not hesitate to book a reading with Michelle or contact us.

Your means of telling all in this post is really pleasant,
all can easily understand it, Thanks a lot.
I have it in Chiron and I have always felt like a misfit, I also have very strong aquarius energy. By the way, I discovered your website through your youtube channel, and I loved the Pluto conjunct Asc video! it resonates with me.

Yes Chiron in the 11th house could bring that effect, but you once you find what is unique about you, you will feel much less like this! How to be part of a group by your uniqueness! Good luck on your journey!
Thank you Hocine! Wish you all the best on your journey!
