I-B. WHAT IS CHIRON?

B. Astrology

Chiron is a major astrological body. Oh, if we had known it was a comet when it was first discovered, or if we had known how small it was, we might have ignored it astrologically. But then, if astrologers had known how small Pluto was when it was discovered, they would have ignored it too! Can you imagine doing a chart now, and leaving Pluto out?

Chiron is the leading body in a whole new classification: Centaurs. The first companion for Chiron, Pholus, was discovered in January 1992...which was an important month for Chiron. That was the month the Chiron moved closer to us than Saturn, for the first time in over fifty years. So as Chiron entered the 'inner circle', so to speak, he introduced us to the first of his many friends. (Incidentally, later that year, astronomers discovered the first of the many bodies beyond Pluto....1992 QB1, which is now designated 15760.) And three years later, with Chiron only months away from the closest to the Sun it can get, astronomers began to discover planets circling other stars for the first time in history. I have heard some astronomers calling the past few years the beginning of the Golden Age of Astronomy.....and one of the things the mythological Chiron taught his pupils was astronomy.)

This group of Centaurs now includes, in addition to Chiron: Amycus (55576), Asbolus (8405), Bienor (54598), Chariklo (10199), Crantor (83982), Cyllarus (52975), Elatus (31824), Hylonome (10370), Nessus (7066), Okyrhoe (52872), Pelion (49036), Pholus (5145) and Thereus (32532), and many other as-yet-unamed bodies (unnamed because the astronomers do not have enough data on their orbits to calculate them exactly.) From personal experience, I can tell you that Pholus and Nessus are definitely important astrologically, and you should definitely look into them. Each in their own way has a purpose to help us become more whole. As you will see below, Chiron links Saturn and Uranus. Pholus, it turns out, links Saturn and Neptune, while Nessus links Saturn and Pluto. (You can read more about these bodies, and a few others, by clicking here.)

-------------------------

One way to tell the nature of a newly discovered body is to look at major events in the world around the time of that body's discovery. Chiron was sighted 1977, so here are a few events from 1976-78 which relate to Chiron:

1976:
  • Genentech, Inc., was founded, a biotechnology company dedicated to developing and marketing products based on recombinant DNA technology.
  • Synthesis of a bacterial gene accomplished for the first time.
  • Parents of Karen Ann Quinlan get approval from the New Jersey Supreme Court to disconnect their comatose daughter's respirator.
  • California passes the Natural Death Act, the nation's first Living Will law.
  • First reported commercial surrogate motherhood arrangement in the U.S.
  • 1977
  • First successful gene transfer.
  • The first home pregnancy kit comes out.
  • Methods developed for rapidly reading the sequence of base pairs in any stretch of DNA.
  • Introns discovered.....interrupting sequences in genes which are not translated into protein.
  • The first human gene is cloned.
  • The major functions of a small protein called Ub (short for ubiquitin) were discovered in 1977. (This is especially intriguing because Chiron was first designated 1977 Ub.) It is composed of 76 amino acids, and involved in many cell processes. It plays an important role in regulating the cell cycle, is involved in DNA repair, embryogenesis, the regulation of transcription, and apoptosis (programmed cell death). This last one is most intriguing...it seems that once ubiquitin is attached to a protein, another series of enzymes is activated that literally grabs the protein bound to ubiquitin and rips it apart. While Ubiquitin had been discovered several years earlier, until 1977 no one had any idea what its functions were. (A special thanks to Jonathan Dunn for bringing this discovery to my attention. Jon writes "Colorful descriptions of one its main functions are a "death tag" or a "kiss of death"....This reminds me of the mythic Chiron's "grateful choice of death".")
  • *Carl Woese discovers a third branch of the tree of life! Up until then, scientists thought here were only two: Eubacteria ("True bacteria", mitochondria, and chloroplasts) and Eukaryotes (Protists, Plants, Fungi, Animals, etc.). But Woese found the Archaea. These living creatures looked like bacteria but had DNA that more closely resembled the Eukaryotes.
  • 1978:
  • First successful mammalian gene transplant.
  • Louise Brown, first "test tube baby", is born (conceived 1977, in vitro fertilization)
  • The genome of the virus SV40 is determined. This is the first step in working out the human genome.
  • Success at getting a strain of micro-organism to produce human insulin, paving the way for a large commercial production of this necessary compound.
  • * ARCHAEA

    Carl Woese discovery changed the life sciences, much in the way Chiron's discovery changed astronomy. Previously, it seemed that the two branches of life were totally separate, without any connection. But as Carl puts it, "Before, one had the prokaryotes over here and the eukaryotes over there," he says. "The relationship was a wall. With archaea, that relationship is a bridge we can cross."

    These creatures are the ones that live everywhere else...places where no other entity can survive. To quote from the Introduction to the Archaea page, "Archaeans may be the only organisms that can live in extreme habitats such as thermal vents or hypersaline water. They may be extremely abundant in environments that are hostile to all other life forms."

    It is fitting that they were discovered at the time Chiron was found, a planet that is known to swing between the extremes of Saturn and Uranus.

    A special thanks to Dale Smith for bringing the Arcaea to my attention.

    CHIRON'S PERIHELION & PERIGEE Well, 1996 was the year Chiron moved closer to the Sun and Earth than anytime since it was discovered. The former, perihelion, occurred Feb. 14, 1996, 1:35 pm EST (6:35 pm UT), while the later, Perigee, April 1 at 2:38 am EST (7:38 am UT). (No comments please about the similarity between people making fools out of themselves on Valentine's Day, and April Fools' Day. It just goes to show you that Chiron has a sense of humor.)

    As I mentioned earlier, Chiron moved closer to the Sun than Saturn in January 1992 (on the 23rd, to be exact.) It moved out past Saturn again on January 11, 1999.... one month before Pluto moves out once again past Neptune (approximately February 10, 1999.) This should be quite an interesting year....especially since it culminates in the first Chiron/Pluto conjunction (Dec. 30) since 1941!

    In case you'd like to study what happened in the world, the last time Chiron was as close to us as it was in 1996, here is that info:

    Year Phase
    1943 Chiron Crossing Saturn's Orbit Moving Inward
    March 7, 1943
    1945 Perihelion
    Aug. 29, 7:57 am EST (12:57 pm UT) 4 Libra 29 (conjunct Neptune!)
    1945 Perigee
    Mar. 22, 5:19 pm EST (10:19 pm UT) 0 Libra 05
    1948 Chiron Crossing Saturn's Orbit Moving Outward
    June 13, 1948

    Juan Antonio Revilla has further perihelia and aphelia, not only for Chiron, but for the other Centaurs as well, some as far back as the 1700's, at http://www.expreso.co.cr/centaurs/astronom/apheldata.html

    What do the perihelion and perigee mean? Well first, we need to look at both Chiron's orbit, and what it means as it passes through each sign.

    If you read the astronomy section, you know that Chiron's orbit of almost 51 years connects it to both Saturn and Uranus, and the astrological essence of Chiron is summed up in this concept. But what isn't as apparent is the effect this has upon how long it stays in each sign. In Aries, when it is at furthest from the Sun, Chiron will stay about 8 years. But when it moves within Saturn's orbit, into the sign Libra, it takes less than 1-1/2 years to speed through the sign. So Chiron's influence in Libra is the most hurried, and events in the world related to this transit occur sometimes at breakneck speed.

    When Chiron enters a sign, the world focus on the most basic, root problems at the heart of things ruled by the sign its in. So for example, during the early 1970's, Chiron was in Aries. The newspapers called it the "me generation", as the focus turned toward discovering the self, asserting the self, gratifying the self. At the root of Aries is the idea of beingness....the I am...self-knowledge. And so the focus was overcoming any obstacles leading to self fulfilment. (Interesting how Chiron spends the greatest amount of time here, isn't it?)

    Well, when Chiron went into Libra, the problems we to focus on are exactly the opposite: how to deal with the not self. Libra focuses on all dealings with others on an equal, one-on-one basis. Partnerships, both marriage and otherwise. Equality and fairness. And, because Chiron turns our attention to the most basic core problems....the essence of a sign, Libran crises aplenty are turning up. Anywhere there is an unbalance, you can bet Chiron will be shining its light there. Relationships going on the rocks, as people are realizing exactly what their relationship was really built upon, and also because people are beginning to understand what they really want from a partnership. Other relationships, the rules are being totally rewritten as a result of this passage. In the world around us, injustice, unfairness, inequality....we cannot turn away.

    So, as Chiron rushes through the sign it spends the least amount of time in, the changes it brings happen so swiftly we can barely catch our breath. Chiron's Perihelion marks a major turning point in Chiron's cycle, for now it has once again begun its journey outward toward Uranus. Just like other turning points, it's degree (14 Libra 04) will be a sensitive point for many years to come, showing the path humanity needs to take toward healing our imbalances. Check out the Sabian Symbol from Dane Rudhyar's "The Astrology of Personality": "A stack of machinery parts; all are new and all circular. Perfect and effortless participation in the universal order."

    And the Perigee marks Chiron's most intense seeding of lessons to humanity here on earth. The degree is 11 Libra 07. Rudhyar says: "Miners are emerging from a deep well into the sunlight. Depth of particpation in the world's work. Whole-souled giving of self to service; or inability to bring self to effort." Let us hope we all turn toward Chiron, and toward the sunlight.

    Another thing to take note of is when Chiron is at 0 degrees declination. Why is this significant?

    The Celestial Equator is a projection of the Earth's equator into the night sky. It is not the same as the plane of the Ecliptic because (as in the diagram above) the Earth's axis of rotation is not exactly at right angles to the Ecliptic. This tilts the celestial equator to an angle of 23.45 degrees to the Ecliptic.

    Astrologers are very familiar with this tilt when it comes to the apparent path of the Sun around the Ecliptic. The Earth's axis is currently tilted so that it always points in one direction, roughly towars Polaris the northern pole star. In the course of one year, as the Earth orbits the Sun this means that the Earth's North Pole goes through two extremes. These are when it points 23.45 degrees towards the Sun (the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, or 0 Capricorn) and 23.45 degrees towards the Sun (Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemsiphere, or 0 Cancer.) At the midpoints between the two - the Equinoxes (0 Aries, 0 Libra) - it neither points away from nor towards the Sun. On these Equinox dates if you stood on the Equator and looked straight up, the Sun would be directly above you at mid day. Hence the Equator and Sun are exactly aligned at that moment. At these Equinoxes, Celestial Equator and the Ecliptic are lined up, and the Sun is 0 degrees of Declination.

    When the Sun is at one of the two Equinoxes (0 Aries), at 0 Degrees Declination, we say it is the beginning of the Solar or zodiacal year. Days begin to get longer and longer. At 0 Libra, it is the halfway point, afterwhich nights begin to get longer and longer.

    With Chiron, however, the two Chironic 'equinoxes' occur over twenty years apart, when it is in either Virgo or Pisces. Which one is the start of the Chironic year? Since Chiron has been associated with healing and wholemaking, I propose the Virgo point as the start. From there, Chiron spends the next 20-some years focusing on trying to heal the problems, bringing things together to a perception of the larger whole at the Pisces point. What do you think?

    Here is a table showing the dates of Chiron at 0 Declination from 1894-2015. We could create a Chironic zodiac, marking the Pisces point as 0 Aries, the Virgo point as 0 Libra, and dividing the interval into 12 signs. It would make an interesting experiment:

    Chiron entered the sign Scorpio on Dec. 29, 1996. It dropped back into Libra for a few months during 1997, before firmly establishing itself in Scorpio. And on Jan. 7, 1999, it entered the sign Sagittarius. Here is a table of Chiron's sign entrances, and stations, since it entered Libra in 1995.....up to the year 2027. All positions are for UT, and were calculated by Juan Revilla's "Riyal" program. The "R", of course, is when it retrogrades back into the previous sign.

    WHERE IS CHIRON NOW?

    There are many places you can turn now to find the position of transiting Chiron. Ever since Neil Michelsen began including Chiron's position in his ephemerides, many years ago, it has been showing up almost everywhere. Of course, my own "Essence and Application" has an ephemeris for Chiron from 1900-2050, and I have the current positions on another page of this site, but sometimes it's nice to have a little ephemeris right in your pocket.

    "Jim Maynard's Pocket Astrologer" is an ideal solution. There is a year-long ephemeris for Chiron in the back (for every 5 days), as well as Ceres, Pallas, Juno and Vesta; a daily ephemeris for all the planets; aspectarians, eclipses, and more. And it also comes in two other sizes, a book-sized "Celestial Guide" and a wall-calendar called "Celestial Influences."

    You can find these in most bookstores, but if you can't get them where you are, they are published by Quicksilver Productions in Oregon, and their phone number is (541) 482-5343.

    *****CHIRON, SATURN AND URANUS*****
    Chiron spends most of its orbit between Saturn and Uranus, and astrologically is the bridge or link between those two bodies. Here follows Chiron's conjunctions, squares and oppositions with each of those two bodies. Take special note of how many exact Chiron/Uranus oppositions there have been this century! All times are Eastern Standard Time. Conjunctions, which represent the beginning of a cycle, are underlined.

    Another interesting line of exploration is the interaction of Chiron with the Saturn/Uranus midpoint. In the 20th Century, this has not happened very often.

    The first occasion was January 1-2, 1900, at 19 Sagittarius. This must have been an interesting year! Looking more closely at that chart, Saturn and Uranus were the two end planets of a stellium. Chiron was conjunct the N.Node and Mercury at 20 Sagittarius, and Pallas at 21 Sagittarius. At the same time, Pluto (15 Gemini) and Neptune (25 Gemini) were opposing the stellium.

    Later that year, there was another almost exact conjunction. Around August 1, 1900, Chiron was 19 Sag 15, and the Saturn/Uranus midpoint was 18 Sag 54. Due to retrogradation, there were no more exact conjunctions that year.

    On April 19, 1907, Chiron reached the Saturn/Uranus
    midpoint at 17 Aquarius 35.

    And as far as I have been able to determine, there has not been another exact Chiron to Saturn/Uranus conjunction since!

    While there were not a lot of times in the past 150 years when Chiron was conjunct the Saturn/Uranus midpoint, there were quite a few exact oppositions to the midpoint (or as some would say, conjunct the contra-midpoint.) Here are the ones since 1850:

    That Saturn/Chiron conjunction has intrigued me for years. One of my favorite singers, Edie Brickell (who not too long ago married Paul Simon), was born during that aspect. In history, the voiceprint was introduced as evidence in a criminal trial for the first time, exactly one day before the aspect was exact, and the day after the aspect, anti-war protestors demonstrated at the New York Stock Exchange, actually bringing a halt briefly to trading. Two days after, the Soviet vehicle Luna 10 in orbit around the moon obtained a reading of the lunar surface that proved that the moon had a crust, similar to earth, and that humans could stand upon it. Three days after the conjunction, Sandoz, the country's only legal distributor of LSD, recalled all of the hallucinatory drug that it had been distributing to scientists.
