What is Chiron in Aries, and how can you heal it? How are Chiron wounds developed in Aries?
Before answering these questions, let’s learn more about Chiron itself.
Did you know that every single one of us has an inner wound, aka core wound, that is represented by our Chiron?
In astrology, Chiron (also known as the Wounded Healer) is a minor planet that can greatly influence our natal charts and astrological readings. It orbits between Saturn and Uranus.
Here’s a little more background on the concept: In Greek mythology, Chiron was a centaur. He was a healer, philosopher, and teacher who actually couldn’t heal himself after he was struck by a poisoned arrow. Hence the myth of Chiron and the name Wounded Healer. Oh, the irony!
That is why the symbol of Chiron is a key. It symbolizes the importance of recognizing and healing our core wounds so that we can reach our full potential.
We’re talking about a transformation process that requires self-reflection, self-care, and healing of our deepest wounds. Are you ready? I bet you are!
If you have a Chiron in Aries, 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 Aries – The Wound Of Self-Worth
Chiron in Aries is one of the most challenging Chiron placements of all because these wounds are on a personal level.
They affect your core being and how you function on a daily basis. It’s about an ongoing struggle that can only end when you start the journey of healing these wounds:
1. Feeling unworthy
People born under the Aries zodiac sign are brave, fearless, and confident (as genuine fire signs). Well, if you have Chiron in Aries, you’re the complete opposite of that.
The sense of feeling unworthy pervades your mind and body. You often feel like, “I am not good enough.”
No matter what you achieve in life, you never feel accomplished because you know you can do better deep down in your soul. The main reason you feel unworthy is that you have a fear of failing.
This fear prevents you from trying new things because you don’t want to set yourself on fire like those born under this zodiac sign.
Arnold H. Glasgow has a solution: “Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.”
There isn’t a day that you don’t doubt your talents and capabilities. Self-doubt is persistent in everything you do. If your natal Chiron sign is in Aries, you greatly depend on what others say and think of you.
Basically, you’re trying to heal your self-doubt by draining yourself even more. Needless to say that this is the wrong way to do it.
Self-doubt is what attracts toxic relationships into your life. Lack of self-love works like a boomerang. The less you love yourself, the less love you’ll receive from others and the universe itself.
3. Pain from being a people-pleaser
Being a people-pleaser has become the norm for you. You’ve lost yourself in the attempt to please others because you no longer know what YOU want and desire.
Making other people happy is your priority because this is the main source of your fake self-worth and trying to mask your insecurities. Focusing on making others happy while you suffer is not how things should be.
That’s exactly what Chiron in Aries is about. It teaches you to embrace yourself and stop making others happy at your own expense. Once you master it, your levels of self-love and confidence level up naturally.
4. No sense of belonging
While Chiron transits Aries, you’re bound to feel lost. You have no sense of belonging, and this can last for 8 to 9 years. Why? Because Chiron spends the most time in Aries and Pisces.
Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, whereas Pisces is the last zodiac sign. So, during this time, you’ll be on a quest searching for your lost self.
The more time you spend with others, the more lonely you feel. You also think that you’re here by mistake because you can’t find your purpose and the higher meaning of your existence.
These and similar questions will haunt you until you begin the healing process.
Wound Healing: How To Heal Chiron In Aries
Healing Chiron in Aries is quite challenging because this zodiac sign is determined not to acknowledge the wounds. So, the first step towards healing would be accepting them instead of ignoring them.
If you choose to suffer in silence, you’ll never be able to overcome these challenges. To become stronger than ever, Aries needs to understand the following things:
Facing your struggles means moving forward
“Ignoring the problem won’t make it disappear.” This is something those with Chiron in Aries need to memorize and repeat frequently.
Instead of trying to forget about things that bother you, you need to face them and take responsibility for your happiness.
Are you feeling lost? Then think about how you can find yourself. Think about this as a challenge. You feel lost for a reason; you haven’t found yourself yet.
Think about the things you enjoy doing. What are your passions? How can you contribute to making this world a better place?
Instead of hibernating, what you need to do is enter WORK MODE. Face your struggles because you are the only person who can do that. No, it won’t be easy, but it will be totally worth it.
Healing your fear of failing
Fear of failing can greatly influence your mental health and how you do anything in life. Therefore, healing your fear of failing will open doors to new opportunities and help you find your purpose.
Facing your struggles and healing your fear of failing are two main things those with Chiron in Aries need to focus on. So what if you don’t pass the exam or don’t succeed in something immediately?
This doesn’t mean that you’re incapable, but that you just need to try harder. I recently read somewhere that success is basically an accumulation of failures. I have to say that I haven’t stumbled upon something more profound in a while.
Instead of focusing on success, focus on the process. Think about how you can improve yourself to achieve your desired goals. Quitting something should be your last resort.
Fail once, twice, three times… WHO CARES? Do you know what truly matters? Your determination to get up every time you fall. That’s called SUCCESS.
Understanding that you are worthy
Yes, you are worthy with all your imperfections. You are enough. You don’t need to seek approval from others to feel worthy.
Instead of focusing on other people’s happiness, now is the time to focus on your own. Otherwise, you’ll never be truly content with yourself.
Daily self-love affirmations and meditation can help you when it comes to working on your self-confidence. Repeat to yourself that you are worthy of love and affection.
You don’t need everyone to like you. All you need is to fall in love with yourself. And this is a process. It starts with getting rid of toxic people and focusing on people and things that bring value to your life.
Self-worth and self-love are the two fundamentals of healing Chiron in Aries.
Females With Chiron In Aries
Women with Chiron in Aries are strong fighters who have trouble facing their past issues. Instead, they bury them and turn on their defense mechanisms.
To save themselves from agony, these women have to think about how ignoring their wounds reflects on their relationships with others and life in general. Of course, facing their deepest wounds is a must.
They need to show the world the true beauty that comes from expressing their fears and traumas. This will also help them shape their true identity – be who they are.
Men With Chiron In Aries
Aries Chiron males are generally stubborn and intense but note that this is their way of masking their insecurities and wounds. Instead of facing them, they pretend to be strong and self-sufficient when, in reality, they couldn’t be more lonely.
When other people don’t treat them the way they expect them to, they resort to self-destruction and make impulsive decisions. We’re talking about an endless chain of hurting and masking the pain.
Aries Chiron males need to learn how to seek support from others and be alone without feeling lonely. They also need to stop taking every mistake personally.
Once they understand that mistakes are an inevitable part of success, they will succeed in reaching their full potential.

How Are Chiron Wounds Developed In Aries?
Having Aries Chiron is connected with your past life or childhood experiences. Perhaps your parents neglected your wishes, needs, and beliefs.
You haven’t had the chance to express yourself and be who you are. Instead, you had to live up to your parents’ expectations. Sadly, these expectations were, more often than not, unrealistic.
Because of that, later on, you acquired the belief that you don’t have the right to be who you truly are, to show yourself to others.
That is why you have this tendency to constantly compete with others and/or win their affection and approval, be it in a job or in relationships.
You can’t help yourself but people-please because you think that’s your main purpose, which leads us to the next issue: Feeling defeated and lost.
It’s important to mention that these Chiron wounds in Aries can also be a combination of past life and childhood experiences.
