From an astronomical point of view, little Chiron (pronounced kai-on) is not a planet. Discovered in 1977 by Charles T. Kowal, it is a small body in the solar system located between the planet Jupiter’s orbit and the planet Neptune’s orbit. It was included in the “centaur” category with characteristics similar to asteroids and comets.
Chiron in Mythology
For Astrology, this planet is symbolized by the mythical centaur Chiron (the same one that lends its legend to Sagittarius ). Half man, half horse, Chiron is viewed by mythology as a great healer, astrologer, and respected oracle.
Legend has it that, unlike the other centaurs, Chiron was intelligent, civilized, kind, and scholarly. One day, while trying to ward off other centaurs who were causing trouble, Heracles, son of Zeus, accidentally struck Chiron.
Although immortal, Chiron was mortally wounded and lived in agony. Ultimately, he gave up his immortality and godhood to end the pain and was lifted to the skies as the constellation Sagittarius.
Chiron has come to symbolize the suffering and trials we must endure in life and the strength to face, fight and overcome difficulties.
About Chiron in Astrology
SUFFERING. DILEMMA. RESIGNATION. FUSION. HEALING.
Chiron is the last planet to be recognized by Astrology. Its highly eccentric orbit has associated it with the concept of a bridge that unites worlds, integrating two realities, two opposites, and dilemmas.
It takes Chiron eight years to travel in Aries, seven in Pisces, and six in Taurus. In Libra, you only stay 15 to 18 months. Despite this great irregularity, it takes Chiron about 50 years to cycle through the signs and around the Sun.
Chiron represents the union between the automatic “I” and self-awareness, the need to resolve personal dilemmas and paradoxes. However, given its recent discovery, its astrological significance is still under discussion.
Although the mythological Chiron faced a tragic end, freeing himself from pain, he ascended to the stars, where he was reconciled to his destiny. For Astrology, this myth symbolizes that the tests imposed on us throughout life motivate us to raise our heads and fight.
Chiron’s fatality reminds us of the potential for growth in all negative experiences. Everything bad that happens to us can also be an opportunity for a new beginning.

Chiron has a parabolic orbit; that is, it crosses the orbits of other planets in the solar system. The little planet is strongly related to Saturn and Uranus, whose orbits intersect from time to time. Therefore, you will relate and identify with the influences of these two planets (as opposed to the Lunar Nodes, which can be linked with the influence of Jupiter for the north node and Saturn for the south node).
