Chiron in 1st House
I don’t know it all when it comes to the way I present myself, and my demeanour. I feel acutely sensitive about my appearance and my immediate impact on others. I can become profoundly wise by developing self-awareness. I release myself from pain when I accept my appearance and persona as they are. I reconnect with people when I realize that others experience the same problems that I do.
Chiron is associated with the emotional wounds we receive early on in our lives. The sign Chiron is in will dominate but the house placing will show in which area the personality is motivated and into which they will put their efforts. In the first house, it may indicate a journey of self-discovery. Possibly, there were restrictions in early childhood that will have had the effect on you of either retreating into yourself or having to fight to be noticed. There will be a need to find personal meaning in existence. Some will do this by being overly aggressive, others by withdrawing. Having a job or interest that is really enjoyed will give a positive direction to your life.
Chiron is a planetoid which was discovered in 1977. Its orbit is considered to be rather strange. It lies between Saturn and Uranus and so it crosses paths with the orbits of both Saturn and Uranus. Because of its unusual orbit, many scientists believe that it is a relatively new planetoid. If it had existed for a long time, then it would have easily gotten crushed from the gravitational forces of both of the planets. Its position in the house can tell us many things. It shows us the various areas where we may have recurring problems and where we can strive to better ourselves or solve our problems.
Chiron in the 1st house rules over appearance. In a way it also represents self-expression in all its physical glory. It is also about self-discovery. If you had to go through several restrictions in your childhood which steered you of the path of self-discovery or if those restrictions somehow prevented you from realizing it, then Chiron in the 1st house will help you to get back on the path. It will imbibe in you a need to understand more about yourself and find meaning in your existence. This sudden revelation can work in both ways. Some go through this process by withdrawing into themselves whereas others might seek it out aggressively.
Chiron in the 1st house also gives you the power to fight and support the underdog. It can also serve as a wise teacher where you will end up teaching others on how to be better at doing things they want to do. However, such a gift benefits others more than yourself. Hence it would be wise to give yourself advice as though you are someone else. By doing so, not only will you be able to help others but you will also be able to help yourselves.
