When Chiron Returns to Discovery Degree @3Tau08

'Rainbow Bridge' Chiron says, Be Here Now!

by Jude Cowell

September 16, 2021:

As you know, astronomer Charles T. Kowal (November 8, 1940--November 28, 2011) discovered Chiron @3Tau08 Rx on November 1, 1977 (10:00 am PST Mount Palomar Observatory) although the celestial body was later found on photographic plates as far back as 1895 with Chiron traveling through the sign of Libra the entire year. You also know that in Astrology, Chiron is associated with archetypes such as 'the wounded healer', 'the wound', 'the key', the 'blind spot', 'the catalyst', 'the hologram', 'the bridge' (between earthly Saturn and 'sky god' Uranus), and the Christ archetype which on a personal level is the most evocative of all (imho!).

And of course one facet for those who have faith in the Second Coming is that Christ is the key that opens the door to Eternal Life for all who prefer Life over death. Perhaps it's being born under a Jupiter-Saturn trine in practical Earth signs that gives me no problem with this at all for Jupiter represents the generous side of our Creator (the staff) while Saturn (the rod) signifies the disciplinary side. Happily no conflict here! Plus, way back in 1977 I greatly appreciated the healing boost for the Collective via Chiron's link to alternative medicine.

According to Dane Rudhyar

Now mention must be made of the rounded-up Sabian Symbol of Chiron's discovery degree of "4 Taurus" for its enlightenment: "The Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow" with the rainbow symbolizing the Covenant of God with Noah (to never destroy the entire Earth by water again). In An Astrological Mandala (#ad), Dane Rudhyar adds, "In all mythologies it expresses, in one way or another, a linking process--or the bridge used by divine beings to communicate with mortals." He continues that the rainbow is, "the source of symbolic, universally valid wealth"; Keyword: "COMMUNION."

However, a caution: we must not assume that the Return/s of Chiron to discovery degree 3 times in the years 2027 and 2028 are heralds of the Second Coming of Christ for no man knows the hour of that long-awaited cosmic return. And that 'no one' includes TV evangelicals, false prophets, enders.

Yet a promise was given to humanity and "Faith in the validity of a promise" is required for karmic progress even in this highly skeptical world! Meanwhile, Rudhyar states that, "COMMUNION" involves "a transubstantiation of matter" and counsels us that, "Man need not be overawed by the celestial display of power, for it leads to a fruitful contact with beings of light." (Well, I can't quite agree with this since being overawed, even overwhelmed, by such a celestial happening seems a certainty to me. But please note that I am not a UFO-er.)

Now I've previously written about Chiron on my general astrology blog if you care to take a look for more details are there.

So after looking at all three Chiron Return horoscopes, it turns out that Pluto squares Chiron in each chart: June 8, 2027, October 7, 2027, and April 6, 2028. A bit of general information concerning this Fixed square follows for the Collective but please don't take it explicitly in reference to your own life unless the square from early Taurus to early Aquarius links to your natal or progressed planets, falls upon angles of your chart, and/or you know in which houses (departments of life) the early degrees of Taurus and Aquarius land, especially if the houses are angular (1st, 4th, 7th, 10th).

Of Pain, Wounds, and Regeneration

A Chiron-Pluto square contains extremely intense energies and indicates power and control issues, and/or an obsession over pain avoidance or relief. Yet with primal Pluto the planet of regeneration and transformation, the square forces us to face our deepest wounds and if appropriate, to atone for and correct any part we played in creating them. To clear our minds, hearts, and consciences of any wounds that we have purposefully or inadvertently caused others will be helpful along with ending denials of guilt. Escapism through the heavy use of drugs, some elicit, is tempting but is a negative possibility of the square as well as other forms of addiction, plus, a fascination with the occult or other types of Plutonian control will not lead anyone onto a positive path. Fortunately, the third return on April 6, 2028 contains a calming Moon-Chiron trine which will supply a sense of harmony and will promote a balance between "the emotions and the higher self in consciousness" (Clow).

Well, that's my admittedly Protestant take on things and as always, disagree if you please, dear reader. But if you do, perhaps you'll leave an on-topic comment concerning the matter with your name bravely attached. Be here now and don't be shy! jc

Christ is the key that opens the door to Eternal Life -- Perhaps the realization as the door is always open. AlNLA
