Chiron in the Signs and Houses

Natal Chiron through Signs and Houses in Astrology

Chiron in Aries or 1st house:

Chiron in the 1st house feels uncomfortable in their skin or identity. Root of this pain may come from being bullied in early life, struggling with body image issues, or strict or aggressive parents who made them feel shameful about themselves. This can result in insecurities, or sometimes a more visible issue like physical impairments.

It may also represent a difficult/traumatic birth.

Chiron in Aries or 1st house suggests that anything that has to do with ‘’the self’’ was a source of pain. Especially in early life, they might have felt that there is something wrong with them- and therefore they don’t feel like they are good enough. They usually have strict parents who thought them that being emotional or having insecurities are shameful. As a result, they may impulsively self-sabotage themselves in order to reaffirm their false beliefs.

Alternatively, Chiron in Aries may resort to selfishness, insensitivity, and bullying in order to cover up their insecurity. They were told to toughen up early on- so these people usually have a hard exterior and it is hard for them to express their deep emotions.

Chiron in 1st house or Aries is learning to accept themselves despite the painful limitations that were put upon them. By attending to their unhealed Chiron, they can gain a healthy sense of self-worth and help others to the same.

Chiron in Taurus or 2nd house:

Chiron in Taurus is feeling that they may be lacking in some way. This might be a lack of security, resources, money or self-worth. When they were growing up, parents may have endured a financial ordeal, or they may be too materialistic.
