I’ve had a lot of things happening in my chart lately, so it’s no surprise that I didn’t even realize that the second half of March is going to be characterized by Jupiter’s conjunction with my natal Chiron.
Chiron is in a unique position in my chart and the chart of anyone born in late 1965 or early 1966. The asteroid sat in opposition to a rare conjunction between Uranus and Pluto, making this configuration a hallmark of my generation. For that reason, I’m not going to be in this alone. Whatever is happening to me this March is going to be affecting anyone born around the same time as me.
In theory, the important thing to note when attempting to assess the relevance of a generation aspect like this unique alignment is where it occurs in the chart and whether or not the planets involved are personalized. In my own horoscope, Uranus sits in the eleventh house: a place where it takes on added importance. For that reason, I might want to look at Jupiter’s opposition to Uranus before I focus upon its conjunction with Chiron.
In practice, however, I have found that Chiron is significant in my chart — more than it should be according to anything that I’ve read in any astrological text. While I despise the notion that the asteroid is associated with “healing” because I choose to believe that I’m not broken, I do take a lot of pride in self-improvement. Of course, Chiron resides in my fifth house: a part of my chart associated with pride.
Perhaps that is why I’m more interested in what this upcoming conjunction between Jupiter and Chiron may bring. Perhaps I’ll open my mind to the idea that I am somehow “broken.” Or maybe I’ll just figure out a novel way to continue along this path of self-improvement that I’ve always traveled.
What I should do is study the conjunction of the sun and Chiron that occurs in the middle of next week. Perhaps that will give me a preview of what’s to come later this month. Having a luminary on that axis a couple of times a year is something that I’ve probably discussed on this blog, anyway. Maybe there’s something in my archives that could help me to predict what’s going to happen when Jupiter transits that same axis.
So that’s what I’m going to do. Hopefully, I’ll figure this all out before it occurs. Stranger things have happened . . .
