Chiron is an inner wound, aka core wound, that needs to be healed so that you can 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 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, symbolizing the importance of recognizing and healing our deepest wounds so that we can reach our full potential.
With that said, this transformation process requires self-reflection, self-care, and healing of our core wounds.
If you have a Chiron in Sagittarius, 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 Sagittarius – The Wound Of Meaning
The basis of Chiron’s wounds in Sagittarius is having difficulty finding purpose in life, figuring out the meaning of life, and believing. If you have a Chiron in Sagittarius, here’s how it affects you:
1. The wound of a lost sense of meaning
The best word that describes the core wound of Chiron in Sagittarius is DISCONNECTION. Basically, you feel disconnected from everything and everyone because you’ve lost your sense of meaning or you never found it in the first place.
You’re on an ongoing search for yourself, the meaning of life, and your purpose. Often you have too many questions: What is the purpose of this life? Why am I here? Am I exactly where I’m supposed to be right now?
You don’t know where you should look for the answers to these questions. The more you think about them, the more lost you feel.
You’re going in circles and have difficulty focusing on anything in particular due to this feeling of being lost. You often feel alone, disoriented, and like no one understands what exactly is going on in your head.
Doubts, suspicion, and overthinking are the main processes that happen regularly, and they totally drain you.
2. Having difficulty believing
Do you have a hard time committing to any religion or believing in general? Those who have Chiron in Sagittarius often tend to be agnostics or atheists. Your main belief system is pessimism because you choose to believe in nothing.
Don’t take this personally because this happens on a subconscious level. Your Chiron wound prevents you from establishing faith and beliefs. Therefore, you struggle to believe in the law of attraction, the spiritual world, and the universe itself.
For you, these terms are only imaginary concepts that don’t represent anything meaningful to you, or at least that’s how you feel right now.
Sagittarius zodiac signs are on a completely different spectrum. They have a strong connection with the spiritual world, whereas people with Chiron in Sagittarius don’t.
Even though you try not to worry about all this, deep down in your heart, you know that something is not right. Life without beliefs is not something that fulfills you in the long run.
3. The pain of commitment phobia
Taking responsibility for your actions and seeking commitment are also two imaginary concepts to you. You simply don’t want to connect with others on a deeper level, and you tell them honestly that you’re an unreliable person.
This goes vice versa. You have difficulty trusting others because you’re convinced that everyone is interested in only receiving and not giving. This hypothesis is what makes it difficult for you to establish meaningful and healthy relationships with others.
We all know that the basis of every relationship is building trust. Given that you see others as untrustworthy, you’re also unwilling to offer trust.
There’s also one more thing that prevents you from committing: the fear of losing your freedom. You’re scared of committing to anything because you feel like you’ll lose yourself by doing so.
More importantly, you’re scared of losing your freedom and becoming a prisoner of other people’s desires. This fear forces you to choose to stay single (in some cases, for the rest of your life).
Your life motto is: It’s better to be alone than lose your freedom. Realizing that it’s possible to be committed and not lose your freedom is how you’ll heal your wounds.
4. The wound of finding your purpose
Given that you have a wound of a lost sense of meaning and difficulty believing and committing, all these affect your ability to find your purpose.
You’ve been feeling lost for some time now with no hope that something will change. The wound of finding your purpose is so deep that it will take lots of time and patience to heal it.
By choosing to be self-sufficient and self-reliant, you’ve become disconnected from the rest of the world. It’s impossible to find your purpose when you can’t see the bigger picture.
Each of us has our own purpose, and to find it, we need to go through a series of challenges and trials. As a matter of fact, we’re in pursuit of purpose our entire lives.
We don’t only have one purpose, but as we evolve, our responsibilities toward society become greater and bigger. This is something those with Chiron in Sagittarius struggle to understand.
Instead of being active, they passively wait for their purpose to appear to them without needing to believe in anything. Well, today, this will change.
Wound Healing: How To Heal Chiron In Sagittarius
Healing Chiron in Sagittarius includes accepting and addressing the pain of the wounds. If you have a Chiron in Sagittarius, you need to learn to find your purpose, have faith, and believe in yourself and a higher power.
When you heal the wounds of your Chiron sign, these wounds will become your healing gifts, and here’s how you’ll do it.
Understanding the power of faith and hope
It’s normal for us to lose our faith in critical moments, especially when we think the universe is plotting against us. But if this has become a regular occurrence, then something needs to change.
You need to re-discover the power of faith and hope. Your thoughts are the most powerful tool you have at your disposal. So, how are you going to use them?
So far, you’ve been using them against you. Now is the time to start using your thoughts in your favor. Positive thinking in tough situations is not easy, but it’s necessary.
You need to realize that life is a journey of multiple ups and downs. You can’t only expect to attract good things without dealing with the negatives.
You gain, you lose, you fight, you lose, you stand up and fight harder, you gain again. This is how life functions. And do you know what one thing is constant in life? FAITH.
It’s believing that no matter what happens, in the end, everything will be as it should. It also means believing that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be right now.
Committing doesn’t mean losing your freedom
Do you think committing to people or things means losing your freedom? If yes, think again. Deciding to be there for someone and have someone be there for you doesn’t mean losing your freedom but becoming stronger.
Setting boundaries is something that will help you protect yourself from fear of commitment. You don’t need to spend all your free time with your partner or friends. That’s why we have compromises.
Having someone explore the world with you is an uplifting experience that opens your eyes and teaches you new perspectives. Instead of focusing on the fear of losing your freedom, realize how much you can gain by deciding to commit.
There’s no need to limit yourself just because you’re in a romantic relationship. When you’re with the right person, you feel free with them.
Understanding that life is a marathon and not a sprint
Yes, life is a marathon and not a sprint. Now, what does this mean? It means that you’ve been focused on the wrong thing all this time: the final goal.
Instead, you should focus on looking at life as a process and a set of ongoing challenges that are supposed to make you stronger.
For example, if you’re in a college, don’t focus on the end goal of passing exams and graduating. Focus on what is happening right now.
See every exam as a mini-challenge that needs to be overcome to level up. Those mini-challenges will motivate you to continue working hard until you reach your final goal.
When you finally reach it, you will be grateful for every effort, hardship, and challenge you had to deal with in the process. This is what will make you stronger, bolder, and more fulfilled.
Becoming responsible for your actions means freedom
If your natal Chiron sign is in Sagittarius, another way of healing it is by taking responsibility for your actions.
Being committed to something is impossible without accepting responsibility for the things you say and do. Only then will you feel completely free. How?
When you’re living a life not caring much about the consequences of your actions, you might think that you’re free, but you aren’t. Responsibility will eventually catch up with you and ask you to “take it.”
While you think you’re free, you subconsciously know this isn’t true. Actually, what you’re doing is convincing yourself that not being responsible is the way to go. Well, it isn’t, and I’m sure you know it too.
The best feeling in the world comes from knowing you’ve done your best and you’re ready to take responsibility for what follows. Only then will you know you’re free because you are playing the role of an active participant in your life instead of a passive one.
Females With Chiron In Sagittarius
Chiron in Sagittarius women makes them feel depressed and hopeless. Having an existential crisis (and too many questions) becomes part of their everyday lives.
Some of them aren’t even aware of the main reason for their hopelessness, which is a lack of purpose and meaning in life. Unfortunately, they cannot start the healing process until they acknowledge the source of their negative thoughts.
In other words, they cannot heal their wounds until they discover the root of their problems. If they don’t, they’ll only roam around in circles, and the ongoing dissatisfaction with their lives will cause even bigger scars.
Males With Chiron In Sagittarius
While Chiron transits the Sagittarius man, he feels overly protective of his freedom. He’s not willing to commit to anyone or anything out of fear that his freedom will be taken away. (And he’s doing it with the real stubbornness of a Sagittarius fire sign).
What’s interesting is that they feel threatened even when there is no reason to. They are convinced that having a romantic partner is a recipe for losing their freedom, so they refuse to commit even if they really like the person.
Once they realize this fear is irrational, they will become free and start seeing commitment as something natural instead of “life-threatening.”
