Healing My Wounds: How My Chiron Placement in Pisces Helped Me Overcome Grief

Healing My Wounds: How My Chiron Placement in Pisces Helped Me Overcome Grief

My name is Theresa, and I've been fascinated with astrology since childhood. I had discovered Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs on my parent’s bookshelf, and from that point forward, I would ask everyone their birthdate to figure out what Sun Sign they were.   Over the years, my studies in astrology became more astute, learning about the planets, houses, and aspects. As I delved deeper into the study of birth charts and horoscopes, I discovered the concept of Chiron - the wounded healer - and how it relates to our life experiences.


In my own birth chart, I have Chiron at 18 degrees in the 9th house of Pisces. The 9th house is associated with higher learning, spirituality, and personal growth, while Pisces is a sign that represents intuition, empathy, and emotional depth. Chiron in the 9th house indicates that I may have experienced some wounds or traumas related to these areas of life.


For me, this wound manifested in the loss of my father. When I was 18 years old, we had a huge argument, and in the heat of the moment, I said some things I didn't mean - including that I never wanted to speak to him again and that I wished he would die. I was hurting and felt that my dad had betrayed me with prior promises, so when he was saying things that I had heard before, I snapped. Immediately after the phone call, I felt uneased, but I did my best to convince myself I was right in cutting communication.  Two months later, my father passed away in a car accident. I was devastated and overwhelmed with guilt and regret.


At the time, I had no idea that this experience was tied to my Chiron placement in the 9th house of Pisces. But as I learned more about astrology and began to explore my birth chart, it became clear to me that this was my wound - the trauma that had left a lasting impact on my life. The guilt and not feeling like I deserved happiness caused issues and friction in many of my relationships.


I knew that to heal from this wound, I needed to work on my emotional and spiritual well-being. Within a year of his death, I started seeing a therapist to help me process my grief and guilt. It helped some, but this gaping hole was still in my heart.  A few years later, I began practicing meditation and yoga to cultivate inner peace and calm.


As I explored further, I discovered the power of chakra work in healing my emotional wounds. Specifically, I focused on opening and balancing my heart chakra, which is associated with love, compassion, and forgiveness. Through daily chakra meditations and visualization exercises, I could release the negative emotions and beliefs that kept me in my pain. It was much work, but realizing that there were many factors to the argument and that my dad loved me, helped me to release guilt and shame.


In addition to my spiritual practices, I also began to explore my connection to my father on a deeper level. Through meditation and communication with my spirit guides, I realized that my father was still with me in spirit and that he was guiding me on my healing journey. I could apologize to him and receive his apology too. I also could feel his love for me while in a deep meditative state.


Now, as a healer and counselor, I use my Chiron placement to connect with clients dealing with loss or other spiritual and emotional wounds. I know firsthand the pain and trauma these experiences can cause, but I also know that there is hope for healing and growth.


Through my healing journey, I've seen my father as a spirit guide supporting me on my path. I've learned to communicate with him through meditation and prayer, and I've found that his guidance and wisdom have helped me navigate some of life's toughest challenges. It makes sense that healing this wound for me would be a spiritual endeavor due to my Chiron placement. Chiron being in Pisces shows that healing, for me, works best with a spiritual approach.


In conclusion, Chiron in the 9th house of Pisces has been a powerful tool for me in my own healing journey. It's helped me understand my past wounds and how I can use them to help others in the present. Through therapy, meditation, chakra work, astrology, and connecting with my spirit guides, I've healed from my father’s loss and found a deeper sense of purpose and meaning in my life.
