Re: Chiron Interpretation
Well, Unukalhai, your suggestion was terrific. I threw my whole life onto the Chiron cycle to see what stuck, and it was amazing what did. I have the details below (more than you ever wanted to know, I'm sure, but in the interest of astrological research, I've included it all. My chart is in the member pages if you're so inclined). Several things stand out:
1) the number of "firsts" that hit on the cycle
2) the number of relationship changes (beginning and ending)
Also, the complication in my chart is that natal Chiron aspects every planet except two, so these cyclic aspects will create a web, and I'm not sure where Chiron begins or ends, if you see what I mean. The other thing to note is that some of these changes may sound bad, but I experienced them as reliefs or opportunities. Curiously, the best romantic relationship of my life--my current husband--doesn't really show up in here anywhere, nor do my two children, who are the very center of my life.
I'm having the last aspect next month before the return in 2014. Curious to see about that. Also, have you any reference for Chiron returns you could post?
