Introducing Chiron…………

chiron2.jpg One fascinating way to understand the essence of something (like Chiron) is to look at the etymology of the word. Chiron comes from the root syllable, chiro which relates to the hand. Thus, chiromancy (palmistry), chirography (penmanship/calligraphy), chironomid (one who makes gestures with his hands), and of course the chiropractor who adjusts our nervous system by manipulating our spine. Chiron is the original ‘alternative’ genius.

Here are more keywords that convey the ‘energy’ of Chiron.

Maverick, Quest, Guide, Healing, Key, Doorway, Bridge, Loophole, Qualifier, Teacher, Mentor, Holistic Healer, Ecologist, Mentor, Rainbow Bridge, Shamen.

And here’s some poetry that echo’s Chiron’s theme…………

 

I am not a mechanism, an assembly of various sections.
And it is not because the mechanism is working wrongly , that I am ill.
I am ill because of wounds to the soul,
to the deep emotional self
and the wounds to the soul
take a long,
long time,only time can help and patience,
and a certain difficult repentance,
long difficult repentance,
realizations of life’s mistake,
and the freeing oneself
from the endless repetition of the mistake which mankind at large has chose to sanctify.
D. H. Lawrence

    The D.H. Lawrence poem put words to my feelings and the “light bulb” I experieneced this past week. Thank you. I have always loved D.H. Lawrence’s writing. Today I was once again reminded why. With the solar Eclipse today and the Chiron/Neptune influences, of course the feelings that came up evoked light on some deep emotional healing – wounded Soul healing. Of course it is happening NOW.
