Ever met a Virgo that doesn’t fit the astrology textbook description of what a Virgo is supposed to be like? I believe that these people (and there are plenty of them) are what I call “Chiron Virgo’s”. I hesitate to go as far as to say that Chiron actually ‘rules’ Virgo, but it certainly does have a strong and obvious association with the sign of Virgo in my opinion.
Chiron describes our true self and uniqueness. It also describes the special and unique gifts that we have as individuals and the ‘onboard abilities’ that are ours only to give. These unique qualities are the special gifts we have that make us ‘charismatic’. So, “Chiron Virgo’s” are also charismatic Virgo’s, which will become apparent in the examples I will provide.
So let’s look at a few of these Charismatic Chiron Virgo’s. Glamorous Sophia Loren. Talented Sean Connery. Charismatic front man Freddie Mercury (someone else affected by a serious physical and psychological health issue). Multi-talented Michael Jackson. Talented and mesmerizing Beyonce Knowles. Actress Cameron Diaz.
Actor Richard Gere is another Charismatic Chiron Virgo (Richard also has his natal Sun in Virgo in square aspect to natal Chiron in his birth chart, and he oozes charisma).
Charlie Sheen And Chiron
Charlie Sheen is another Charismatic Chiron Virgo. Chiron represents our true self, and our authenticity as people. During the Chiron return (around 49-50 years old), buried wounds that need to be brought up out of the private and often secretive subconscious mind where they are likely to have been lurking for a long time, tend to come up for healing and exposure, and up into the fresh air of honesty and authenticity and the public arena. It is no coincidence that at the time I write this article, Charlie Sheen is 50 years old, and he is finally exposing his festering physical and psychological wound of being HIV Positive and bringing it out into the open for healing.
Perhaps Charlie can use his power and influence and generosity to help find a cure for HIV/Aids. Whatever he chooses to do, he is bound to change a lot at this point of his life journey, as both Chiron and the focal point of his Chiron Return assert their very definite energy and influence in his life.
Chiron orbits between Saturn and Uranus physically, and Chiron is intrinsically connected to both Saturn and Uranus psychologically/spiritually. The Chiron Return marks yet another maturing phase (Saturn) on the human journey – a maturing phase which releases more of our true individual selves (Uranus) by exposing and healing psychological/physical traumas that cast shadows over the light of our true and authentic selves.
It is good that Charlie has not missed the “Chiron healing boat” and opportunity to heal, because some people surely do, and consequently hold their wounds inside until the end of their lives.
