Chiron, the Wounded Healer, has been quite the busy bee these last weeks as he's made oppositions, conjunctions, and squares to just about...everything. He's the archetype of the Shaman, and as such, a sickness (and the healing that follows) is part of how his power is gained.
Now as Venus moves into position to get the Chiron treatment, sexual wounding can come up to be healed. Illusions around relationships may dissolve, and we are left with who we are without the armor of glamour. The layers just keep peeling away. Defenses that we've had up for a long time---and that maybe we didn't even know were there--may start to dismantle. The exhaustion of trying to keep up an appearance could catch up with us, and thank goodness for this!
We say we want to be loved for who we really are, and yet so often we keep pretending that we are someone that we are not to get that love. This is creates a sense of "cognitive dissonance"; as wikipedia points out, this is much like saying we don't want to get drunk and ordering a drink. It can't work. You just can't get there from there. It's stressful, and it hurts.
These energies are inviting us to create more direct pathways to getting our needs met. In doing so, we might have to come up against needs that have never been met, and that we've buried deep down in order to protect ourselves from further pain. We might have to come up against beliefs that say we are "weak" if we actually have needs. We might come up against some really raw, hungry feelings. Good thing, too, because it means that we are alive! Just admitting that we have needs can be a huge step in letting go and letting in more that truly fulfills. We can't line up with what we can't acknowledge. Our truth is where our power is.
