Chiron and healing Spirit

The energy of Chiron, the healer-redeemer, is in the air. I find this a most fascinating subject when thinking of humanity and our ongoing struggle to find peace, harmony and health. Life is such a paradox of tears and ecstasy, and embodying this conflict is the story of the Centaur. Chiron was the product of a rape and abandoned by his parents he had to set out alone to find his true power, until one day he got struck by an arrow dipped in poison that kept him in excruciating pain until his release into death.

Neptune

A Neptunian experience is to be in this realm, where you either drift, float lost or are swept away. It could be through music, drugs, dancing, inspirational creation, idealism or a spiritual quest.

Saturn

Saturn is made of the cross of matter on top of a downward-pointing crescent of receptivity. Together these indicate the importance of heritage and past experience as pathways to maturity, structure and stability.

Pluto

Pluto is made up of the circle of spirit, half-in and half-out of an upward facing crescent of receptivity on top of the cross of matter. Combined, these elements represent the containment of the individual who is receptive to life’s mysteries and able to ground them into reality.

Jupiter

Jupiter is made up of the crescent of receptivity reaching out from the left of the cross of matter. These symbolise the relationship of soul to the material world, the soul’s desire to free itself from the material realm, broaden life experience yet still sustain physical needs.

Moon

The glyph of the Moon is a double crescent of receptivity, indicating an extremely high level of receptivity, perceptiveness and sensitivity to all aspects of being.

Mercury

Mercury – Crescent of Receptivity above the Circle of Spirit on top of the Cross of Matter. Combined, these symbols represent the conscious and unconscious realms and Mercury’s ability to bridge the two by adapting, relating and communicating between them.

Mars

A circle of spirit with an arrow on top rotated 140 degrees. The arrow is the symbol of will, direction, masculinity and taking action.

Uranus

Uranus is made up of two crescents of receptivity on either side of the cross of matter, which is on top of the circle of spirit. The two crescents indicate left brain and right brain perceptions, rapid intuition, and antennas or radars picking up signals from far and wide.

Chiron

The glyph for Chiron is made up of the circle of spirit and a key. The key symbolises how Chiron unlocks both the hidden wounds and gifts that help us heal. The key also represents a K, the initial of its discoverer’s surname, Charles Kowal.
