What is Chiron in Aquarius? How do you heal your core wounds? How are these wounds developed in Aquarius?
Let’s answer these questions.
Chiron is an inner wound, aka core wound, that needs to be healed to connect with your true self.
In astrology, Chiron is a minor planet that orbits between Saturn and Uranus. It is also known as a dwarf planet (just like Pluto). This planet can greatly influence our natal charts and astrological readings.
In Greek mythology, Chiron was a centaur. He was a healer, philosopher, and teacher. The biggest irony is that he actually couldn’t heal himself after he was struck by a poisoned arrow. That is why Chiron is also known as the Wounded Healer.
The symbol of Chiron is a key that symbolizes the importance of recognizing and healing our deepest wounds so that we can reach our full potential.
With that said, this transformation process requires understanding, self-reflection, and healing of our core wounds.
If you have a Chiron in Aquarius, below, you’ll find all you need to know about his core wounds, how to heal them, how these wounds are developed (and much more).
Chiron In Aquarius – The Wound Of Belonging
The Chiron wounds in Aquarius revolve around feeling different and having no sense of belonging. If you have a Chiron in Aquarius, here’s how it affects you.
1. Feeling disconnected
Chiron in Aquarius means you have a strong desire to belong in a group, but when you spend time with people, you feel disconnected and self-conscious.
While Chiron transits Aquarius, you’ll often feel like there’s something wrong with you, which is why you can’t find your sense of belonging.
The more time you spend with others, the more lonely you feel. Also, when you hang out with others, you often feel like you’re there by mistake. Feeling isolated is something that haunts you on a daily basis.
That is when the process of self-consciousness starts. Due to feeling disconnected, you start blaming yourself for it. You think others knowingly avoid you, making it hard for you to belong to their group.
What’s happening here is actually something I call self-sabotaging. The reason you feel disconnected is that you aren’t connected with yourself. Other people can accept you, but they can’t give you self-love, which is crucial when it comes to connecting with others.
2. The wound of acceptance
Have you ever found yourself thinking: Why do I have to be so different from others? Is that the reason why they don’t like me?
You want to be acknowledged, worshiped, and accepted, but you think that’s impossible because you’re just different from other people. You often feel like you’ll never have real friends because no one understands you.
Struggling to fit in is your main goal, so your whole focus is directed toward that. But in that process, you failed to see one thing: to acknowledge and accept yourself.
Being different is not a bad thing and not the reason why others “don’t like you.” Once you see diversity as a gift, your relationship with yourself will greatly improve, and you won’t have a problem worrying about fitting in. It will all happen naturally.
3. The wound of lacking meaningful relationships
If your natal Chiron sign is in Aquarius, your core, old wound makes you feel like an outsider devoid of emotional support. Our friends, family, and others close to us provide a sense of security and belonging.
Having a Chiron in Aquarius makes it difficult for you to connect with others and form meaningful relationships. Because of that, you’re bound to feel like an outcast and like there’s something wrong with you.
You’re convinced that you don’t have friends because you’re a legit weirdo and just different. You feel that others don’t accept your differences but instead mock you for them.
The thing is, all this is what’s happening in your head, and it forces you to develop a fear of trusting others and committing. By seeing yourself as an outsider, you’re creating a larger gap between you and those close to you.
That is how Chiron in Aquarius influences you, but not all hope is lost. You have the opportunity to heal your wounds and overcome all those difficulties that have been bothering you.
Wound Healing: How To Heal Chiron In Aquarius
Healing Chiron in Aquarius includes accepting and addressing the pain of the wounds. This means focusing on accepting yourself and believing in yourself.
When you heal the wounds of your Chiron sign, these wounds will become your healing gifts. Here’s how you can do it.
Understand that being different is totally okay
The main thing you need to focus on when healing Chiron in Aquarius is seeing differences in a different light. Understand that there’s nothing wrong with you, and being different is a good thing.
Imagine that all of us were the same (same looks and personalities). What would the world look like? Diversity is what helps us distinguish ourselves from others. It’s what adds value to our qualities.
Just because you don’t have the same interests as your friends doesn’t mean that you’re an outsider. You’re just different, which is a good thing.
Don’t let others dictate how you feel about yourself. You’re not here to impress anyone. You’re here to be who you are because that’s your greatest gift.
Pretending to be something you’re not only to be accepted by others is the biggest curse. It’s how you lose yourself. Well, now is the time to find yourself again. Show your true colors and be proud of yourself.
Embrace your uniqueness and use it as a gift
If your astrological chart says you have a Chiron in Aquarius, then embracing your unique qualities is an inevitable part of your healing process. Recognize your vulnerabilities, and don’t be ashamed to show them to the world.
Think about what makes you different from others, and then embrace it! Use your uniqueness as a gift because it will always be a burden if you don’t.
Remember that everything stems from how you perceive yourself. If you don’t accept yourself the way you are, others won’t either.
If you don’t see yourself as special, others won’t see you as such either. Therefore, embrace who you are and be proud of your quirks. Fall in love with yourself because that’s the most important relationship you need to maintain in your life.
At the end of the day, what matters is how you feel about yourself and not what others think of you. Once you understand and implement this, you’ll form meaningful connections with others in no time.
You won’t feel the need to seek approval from others. You’ll be yourself and proud of who you are inside and out.
Females With Chiron In Aquarius
Women with Chiron in Aquarius are prone to proving their worth to others only to win their affection and gain a sense of belonging. These women often feel alienated from society due to their different mindsets.
They feel different and think differently, but they’re afraid to show it to the world. They think that others won’t like them if they show them their true selves.
Because of that, they often choose to pretend that they’re ordinary only to be accepted by others. As a result, this makes them feel distant and isolated in a group of people.
We’re talking about an ongoing struggle to find your people and feel accepted by them. Fear of abandonment is also present. To heal their wounds, these women need to focus on nourishing their own interests and being who they truly are.
They need to express their differences in various ways (how they dress, talk…). Once they become comfortable with being different, they’ll reach their full potential, and others will desire their inspiring company.
Males With Chiron In Aquarius
Similar to females with Chiron in Aquarius, men also deal with struggles related to self-worth and being accepted. When they spend time with others, they don’t feel comfortable because all they can think is, They probably think I’m awkward.
So, in an attempt to win other people’s approval and acceptance, they often resort to exaggerated methods. The irony is that their desperate attempts make them look truly awkward and weird to others.
They often have low self-confidence, so they try hard to persuade others that they are confident in themselves and worthy of their attention.
What they don’t know is that their true worth is buried somewhere between losing themselves and trying to please others.
Once they find it, they’ll no longer feel tempted to “make fools out of themselves,” but they’ll be recognized and valued without even trying.

How Are Chiron Wounds Developed In Aquarius?
If your Chiron is in Aquarius, you feel like an outsider for a reason. It’s mostly because this wound often affects people who are Starseeds. In other words, they come from another planet, which is why they feel different from others.
Their past lives were intense. This means you didn’t know how to behave or be accepted by people on earth. They were lost among all those imposed rules by society, so people-pleasing seemed like the only way out.
Their wound becomes extremely painful after a few major disappointments in others. The more they tried to fit in, the more painful it was. Today, even if others accept them, they still feel like there’s something wrong with them due to their past wound.
That is why acknowledging it and healing is a must. Being different is totally okay but feeling bad about being different is not.
They need to learn that they don’t need other people’s acceptance to fit in. All they need is to fall in love with themselves and their unique abilities.
