The Sun

The Sun in astrological transits acts as a spotlight on our lives, illuminating our path, identity, and individuality. Its influence in transits is potent; it highlights areas needing growth and development or affirming our existing paths. When the Sun transits another planet in a natal chart, it activates the planet's energies, enhancing or challenging them depending on the nature of the aspect.

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:

An opposition occurs when planets are about 180 degrees apart, directly across from each other on the zodiac wheel. This aspect can create a pull between opposing forces or interests, requiring a balance or integration of these energies. Oppositions often highlight areas where we need to understand and manage opposing viewpoints or conflicting needs. Planets in opposition are sometimes projected onto other people or there is a tension between people related to two planets (representing their inner qualities).


The Sun opposite Chiron transit brings to the forefront our deepest wounds, insecurities, and vulnerabilities. It's a time when the solar light illuminates what is typically hidden, prompting a powerful confrontation with our innermost fears and unresolved issues. This period can manifest as a crisis of identity or a significant challenge to the ego, where you are pushed to recognize and deal with aspects of yourself or your life that you may not be comfortable with. The healing process facilitated by this transit involves facing up to these painful truths, acknowledging personal and generational trauma, and understanding how these shape your identity and life path. It's a potent opportunity for emotional and psychological healing, where the pain acknowledged can lead to profound personal growth and increased wholeness.
