Chiron, often called the "Wounded Healer," represents our deepest wounds and our efforts to heal these wounds. Its transits offer opportunities for healing and learning from past traumas, making us wiser and more compassionate healers ourselves. A Chiron transit might involve revisiting painful experiences, but it provides the means to find healing through understanding and releasing these past hurts.

type of aspect:

A square is formed when planets are 90 degrees apart, creating a challenging angle that often results in tension and conflict. This aspect can force action through crisis or confrontation, pushing for resolution or change. While squares may indicate struggles or obstacles, they are also powerful motivators for growth and can help build resilience.


Mercury square Chiron is a compelling astrological aspect that often surfaces painful issues related to communication and understanding. During this transit, you may find that your words and thoughts are infused with past wounds, possibly causing misunderstandings or hurt feelings, both in yourself and others. It's a period where the universe challenges you to confront and heal these vulnerabilities. This transit acts like a sharp scalpel, cutting through the superficial layers of interaction to expose deeper insecurities or flaws in the way you express yourself or absorb information. While it can lead to tension and a sense of mental discomfort, it also opens up profound opportunities for healing and personal growth. The pain or discomfort you feel is not without purpose; it’s a signal, directing you to areas where care and attention are needed.

what to do

  • Reflect on your words: Before speaking, take a moment to consider how your words might affect others, especially those who might be sensitive or vulnerable.

  • Listen actively: Make an effort to really hear what others are saying, not just the words, but the emotions and intentions behind them.

  • Seek understanding: If misunderstandings arise, approach them with a willingness to understand and resolve rather than defend.

  • Express your feelings: Use this time to be honest about your feelings, but do so with kindness and consideration.

  • Engage in dialogue: Open up conversations about difficult subjects; this can be therapeutic if handled with care.

what to avoid

  • Avoid criticism: Try not to be overly critical or harsh in your judgments of others.

  • Steer clear of defensiveness: Resist the urge to become defensive if your words or ideas are challenged.

  • Avoid isolating yourself: Don’t withdraw from important conversations, even if they feel risky or vulnerable.

  • Resist impulsive reactions: Take time to process information before reacting, especially if the topic touches on sensitive areas.

  • Neglecting your pain: Don’t ignore the emotional and psychological impacts of your interactions.

  • Insecurities related to intelligence or communication abilities.

  • Anxiety about expressing thoughts or opinions.

  • Feelings of being misunderstood or not heard.


  1. Acknowledge the Wound: Begin by acknowledging that there may be deep-seated issues affecting your communication style or how you process information.

  2. Seek Therapy or Counseling: Engage in therapies that focus on communication and past trauma.

  3. Journaling: Start a journal to track your thoughts and reactions during this period, which can provide insights into patterns needing healing.

  4. Mindfulness Practices: Incorporate mindfulness to stay present during conversations, reducing the likelihood of misunderstandings.

  5. Communication Workshops: Consider participating in workshops that enhance communication skills, offering tools to express yourself more clearly and effectively.



  • "I communicate with kindness and receive words with openness."
