Chiron in 9th House
This shows your deepest wound residing in expansion. This can be physically, meaning travel, or mentally, meaning philosophy or religion. You may go through a transformation of beliefs at least once in your life and it can be very prominent and life changing. You are a life long learner and strong advocate of constant learning yet you may stress yourself out in trying to do just that. You are a great teacher, but if you don’t allow your mind to expand and see other sides to things, you can be arrogant and unwavering.
You put a lot of stress on yourself to follow what you currently believe, yet allow others to be flexible in their approaches and offer up multiple ways of doing things. You enjoy helping others expand, yet you are afraid to yourself. It’s important to continue to expand your mind, and you can do that through travel and study and listening to others. To heal this wound, you must let truth shine through rather than holding convictions that you’ve grown out of as well as DO what you feel your soul pulling you toward. Everything is a learning experience after all.
Chiron in the 9th House
Individuals with Chiron in 9th house often have had experiences where their inner and instinctual nature has been traumatized by being forced to fit the cultural or religious norms of society. These people know what it is like to fight against religious or social dogmas. They have been wounded by the thoughtless actions and words of others. These individuals may have been gifted with abilities that go against the grain of societal stereotypes, the soldier mum or the stay at home dad. Their sexuality may go against the religious upbringing they received. They may have been subject to prejudice because of disability.
These people tend to confound our expectations of what they should be, they reject stereotypes and refuse to be pigeon-holed. These people are often understanding how we are all unique as individuals and they are frontrunners of change. At a basic level they run up against the big other, whether that is the state, religious, political, national, tribal or Scientific beliefs that seek to control for ‘the better good of future generations’.
They often know what it feels like to be the obstacle that needs removing to create this better world for all. Whether they are single parents, the undeserving poor or any other minority they probably know what it feels like to be held accountable for all of societies ills. The Big other can also be commercial goods in recent riots it was expensive trainers and mobile phones that were the top priority of looters, in a society constantly bombarded with messages that these items hold the key to happiness and success, they become the big other that others are preventing us from having in order to prevent our happiness.
We all have our big other whether it is meditation, house in the country the big other is what will make us happy and completely fulfilled, and another aspect of this may be learning that the big other never achieves this role it may be moving to the dream house in the country only to find you are unhappy. Successful athletes often have this experience after obtaining their goal when they realise that Olympic gold medals don’t lead to long term self fulfilment and happiness.
They may themselves be ideological victims of their own big other and sacrifice their own personal happiness for the belief in a cause for the greater good. This may mean they dedicate their life to some belief only to discover it is a sham that is being used to abuse and manipulate others. This however is not a complete waste of that portion of their lives for they have learnt valuable lessons and have the skills and experience necessary to help others in similar situations, this is also true of those who have been the target of society’s scapegoating they to are often skilled in helping others who face similar situations to learn to cope and move forward.
