Modern Astrology For discussions on Modern Astrology only. (Note: Typically, modern astrology is defined as using techniques developed around the late 1800s by Theosophists. Specifically it relies on psychological, evolutionary, karmic, and non-western interpretation approaches and includes Neptune, Uranus and Pluto, and non-Ptolemaic aspects. The focus is more on psychological chart interpretation instead of prediction.)

Can we talk about chiron

Chiron is a bigger celestial body than Pluto, yet not many astrologers include it in their readings.

Can we talk about what Chiron symbolizes?

If youíre asking about what it symbolizes, I think what Iíve always read about it is that whatever house it is placed in (and what aspects it makes) is the area where you will always feel some kind of pain or it will be a ďwound that never heals.Ē In that sense, itís effect is a bit similar to Saturn. Itís in my 12th house, but Iím not sure what that means as the 12th house always confused me. I know what the 12th house means, but Iím not sure how having Chiron there translates to the nativeís life. Other house placements have more obvious explanations (ex: Chiron in the 4th would indicate that the natives childhood experience or home/family life will have a painful or long-lasting effect on them).

I've read about this too and 'wound that never heals' however I have also read that one has to help others with that 'wound' to overcome it. Well that's the way I read it anyway. My Chiron is retrograde in 8th house of Taurus. Not sure what its all about though.

I don't think it is relevant that it is retrograde as I think I've read that Chiron is retrograde 50% of the time (or more?). Taurus represents many things, including sensuality. 8th house represents many things, including sex and sensuality. Perhaps you have some inhibitions or unresolved issues involving sex? 8th house also rules death and the occult. Maybe you've experienced trauma after a loved one passed away when you were younger and it scarred you? Maybe it sparked an interest in you in the idea of an afterlife because you try to overcome a loved one's death through assuring yourself they exist on another plane?

I think Chiron in the 8th can play itself out in many different ways in the native's life, those two examples are just what I can think of off the top of my head.
