Chiron in Synastry

In synastry, Chiron contacts indicate that healing can be achieved through your union. The planet person may (inadvertently) push Chiron’s buttons, or vice-versa, reminding him of past hurts he has been carrying throughout his life.

Indeed, Chiron’s energy is both healing, and painful. The Chiron person has the ability to cleanse the planet person’s wound and guide them away from what has been hurting them.

Chiron-Sun Aspects in Synastry:

The Sun person learns much from the Chiron person, and perhaps discovers her life purpose. Harmonious aspects (Chiron conjunct Sun, Chiron trine Sun, Chiron sextile Sun) indicate mutual trust, respect, compassion, and love.

The Chiron person supplies understanding and compassion that can heal the painful issues related to the Sun person’s identity or childhood. In the process, Chiron is able to heal his own wounds.

Hard aspects (Chiron square Sun, Chiron opposite Sun), on the other hand, are more difficult. Overcoming old hurts are likely to occur if this synastry aspect is present. The couple may inadvertently contribute to further emotional pain.

Chiron-Moon Aspects in Synastry:

Chiron and the Moon are both sensitive planets. When one person’s Chiron makes a harmonious aspect to another person’s Moon (Chiron conjunct Moon, Chiron trine Moon, Chiron sextile Moon), the relationship acts as a comforting, nurturing avenue for mutual healing.

Hard aspects between Chiron and the Moon in synastry (Chiron square Moon, Chiron opposite Moon) indicate that the Moon person is likely to trigger past painful memories of the Chiron person. The Chiron person’s reaction to these hurts may surprise the both of them! The Chiron person might find the Moon person insensitive, which could, in turn, offend the Moon person. Hurt feelings are common in this relationship.

As a couple, their job is to understand that these emotional reactions are symptomatic of past hurts, and learn to move forward.

Chiron-Mercury Aspects in Synastry:

When one person’s Chiron makes a harmonious aspect to another person’s Moon (Chiron conjunct Mercury, Chiron trine Mercury, Chiron sextile Mercury), the couple shares a healing communicative and intellectual bond. The Mercury person helps the Chiron person put their pain into words and move past childhood wounds.

Hard aspects between Chiron and the Mercury in synastry (Chiron square Mercury, Chiron opposite Mercury) indicate that the Mercury person can be hurtful with their words. The Chiron person is very sensitive to what the Mercury person says, as it triggers past wounds and childhood trauma. Extra compassion and care should be observed in this relationship, for the threat of hurt feelings is very high.

Chiron-Venus Aspects in Synastry:

Many astrology websites state this aspect is an indication of “true love”.

Harmonious aspects (Chiron conjunct Venus, Chiron sextile Venus, Chiron trine Venus) indicate the couple has the ability to heal each other from the pains of previous relationships. This is a strong, loving bond, which serves to cleanse them of past, damaging relationship habits and embrace true love. The planet person is soothing to the Chiron person, while the Chiron person helps the Venus person discover the benefits of a loving relationship.

The hard aspects (Chiron square Venus, Chiron opposite Venus) are more difficult to handle. In this case, healing does not come as easily. Together, the couple will have to work through past hurts in order to move forward. They may inadvertently remind each other of past relationship difficulties.

For example, I was in a short-term relationship with a man whose Venus conjuncts my Chiron. I reminded him very much of a past girlfriend, with whom he had a painful, tumultuous relationship. In fact, I even looked a bit like her!

There were so many similarities between her and I. Our conjunction is in Gemini, so through conversation, I helped him deal with the hurts he had been holding on to. However, I ultimately ended up hurting him in the same way she did.

Chiron-Mars Aspects in Synastry:

Harmonious aspects (Chiron conjunct Mars, Chiron trine Mars, Chiron sextile Mars) indicate healing through sex and joint action. Past hurts in regards to sexuality and aggression are healed through this union.

Hard aspects (Chiron square Mars, Chiron opposite Mars) between Chiron and Mars in synastry can be difficult to handle. Through conflict, Mars person may (inadvertently) re-open Chiron’s past wounds and hurts.

Chiron may feel the Mars person is unsympathetic and cruel, while the Mars person may find the Chiron person overly-sensitive. Chiron may also (inadvertently) re-open Mars’ wounds, as they relate to sexuality, drive, and action.
