Chiron Aspects Making Me Crazy!

I saw an article you wrote on Chiron in the Natal Chart. With Uranus conjunct my natal Sun/Chiron/Mercury/Mars stellium in Pisces in the 11th House, triggering a Natal Opposition between those planets and a Pluto/Uranus conjunction in the 5th House, I feel like I'm going crazy. (I also have Saturn currently Conjunct that Pluto/Uranus 5th house configuration adding to the pressure of the Uranus transit.)

Can you recommend some books I could read to gain insight into these transits? Your words are helpful but I need to know more.


Dear RO,

The best book on the subject of Chiron that I have read so far remains Barbara Hand Clow's Chiron. It's extremely detailed, and virtually everything else I have read really seems to take it's cues from that work (including what I have written, apart from my own observations). But with aspects like yours, maybe once you get to the other side of these transits, it will be you that is writing a book on Chiron - or perhaps on some other spiritual healing process or idea.

I think you need a creative outlet for all the energy you are processing right now, something physical that feels healing to you. You might consider trying something like Yoga or Pilates, or learning some kind of physical healing modality like therapeutic massage. Let Uranus do his work, don't fight the changes so much. You'll find that you are a new person once the pressure eases up. Not all your friends and associates may appreciate the changes though. I know your collection of people are important to you, but the worst thing you can do right now is cling to any of them. Think of this as a winnowing process. You are really separating the wheat from the chaff.
