What is Astrology?
Astrology is a language unfolded by the Cosmos that connects us with It and expresses our spiritual evolution. While the birth chart represents an inner landscape that matches heavens at the moment we were born. We are placed just in the middle, or better said, our heart is placed in the middle of the chart, so it represents our heart unfolded using the language of the Cosmos. A language that we can use and read depending on our consciousness for our best evolution in this life. It is the reason for us to be here…
As we understand it better, it’s easy to become who we are meant to become. Because the Soul has its own journey that is unique and different from the rest of us. For all of these, we can say that each chart is sacred because it expresses the sacredness and uniqueness of our hearts.
The Soul’s journey encompasses timelines different from this one we are living in. and astrology can help to guide us and increase our consciousness, so we can fulfill the purpose of our soul for this lifetime… a purpose that is intricately woven with our multidimensionality and interdimensionality, as part of our mystery as human beings.
We know that as above, so below. Thus, we can say that the language of the planets tells us something about ourselves (past, present and future as it is not constricted to linear time), but it’s up to us to listen to it, as we have free will.
Our chart holds our potential Life Journey that lies ahead of us with the possible challenges we can encounter, but also the possible solutions to overcome them.
Because, in reality, we live from within to without…
And in this context: Who are Chiron and Chariklo?
Chiron is a centaur that is a master healer, a shaman of the solar system that takes us on a vision quest (consciously or unconsciously) and the healer teacher. As a centaur, he is part god (immortal), part human and part animal, a trinity that also lives within us representing our spirituality, our rationality and our intuition connected to Mother Earth and our body.
The planets named centaurs orbit across other planets orbits, meaning that it crosses different parts of our consciousness. In the case of Chiron, it comes in front of Saturn (it means that it comes into manifestation).
And he has a beloved partner: Chariklo.
The planet Chariklo is larger than Chiron, and its orbital period is a little longer: it takes 62 years to complete its orbit around the Sun while Chiron needs around 50-51 years. She has a double halo and two rings while Chiron seems that has one ring, and comes deeper into the solar system.
While Chiron points us to our deeper wound to explore and recognize it so we can heal it, Chariklo opens the best space for us to heal deep our Soul wound. Because she is a mermaid connected to fluidity, flow, merging with water/emotions/feelings, shapeshifter from the heart because she was able to shapeshift her original form for the love of Chiron and become a centaur, thus she could be with him in the mountains, be at his side, while helping him to heal and teach. But also she was a wounded warrior, because she left her original home and roots (the streams and lakes and their surroundings, the ceaseless song of the waters, the shimmering sparkles of light in the water surface when the Sun and the Moon shone and the slipping rocks and pebbles) to be with her love. And she was able, with all of her love and healing qualities, to help him to continue his work, offering him the music of the waters while holding the best energy and space for Chiron to do his work.
Chariklo supports Chiron work, strengthens his work for the highest outcome and enhances Chiron special healing. But she also can hold us during transitional processes and shamanic practices (if we feel called to them).
Chiron is holistic, lives in the moment, in the Eternal Present, he is about healing primal wounds, opening awareness and cultivating holistic consciousness of our self to become whole. While Chariklo flows, she is more etheric and part of the quantum realm because she can change frequencies and form from the heart. She represents the Divine healer, the Spirit Medicine, while Chiron represents the Shamanic Healer, the Earth Medicine, uniting in this way both, heavens and earth within us.
She gives sense to our physical space, including our bodies and our energy field around us. She guides us to awaken and she is related to miracles, creation of new ways of being, protection and destiny from compassion and deep understanding of who we are. She has a gentle energy that reminds us of the love and kindness that live within us to help us and others to uplift our consciousness.The position of Chariklo in our charts, in sign and house, indicates the best healing energy space able to hold our wound and heal it.
Both, Chariklo and Chiron, represent the divine feminine and masculine healing energies. When in balance they can bring a deep healing sense that offers us harmony, peace and unity to our body, mind and soul. For me (and also other astrologers), they both are co-rulers of the Virgo sign, together with Mercury. Therefore, their presence can be better felt during the Virgo season: from 22nd August to 22nd September, a good moment to take some time for us and go within, connect with the Earth and Cosmos natural rhythms and ask us about the wound we carry. But also the best way for us to heal it.
Because Chariklo inspires us to look beyond the physical realm into the heart and its mysteries, to look into the unknown that already lives within us, reminding us that only from love can we reshape ourselves and be whole again. In meditation, we can call upon her, open our heart space to receive and feel her Light Essence as a way to receive guidance to find the right remedies, tinctures, herbs and healing wisdom we need at the moment.
Are we ready?
