Wounded healer is a term created by psychologist Carl Jung. The idea states that an analyst is compelled to treat patients because the analyst himself is “wounded“. The idea may have Greek mythology origins.
I dunno, but he sounds amazing on his podcats.
When I felt lost in confusion, I asked myself “What am I supposed to do?” I didn’t know how to react. But the question is “How do you react to this world of suffering?” First, accept that stress, suffering and dissatisfaction are part of our human experience. Perhaps there is a way not to react, but to positively respond.
Chiron from 2010-2019
- Challenged all religions – cutting their progress and power.
- Made us switch from me to we.
- Forced us to deal with our raging emotions and our self-destructing mood swings.
Chiron in Aries (2019 – 2027)
This is a particularly challenging position for Chiron, threatening world peace. This new position of the Wounded Healer has so many things to say. He will stay there until April, 2027.
We switch again from we to me. And we should take full responsibility of our actions.
It’s not easy to get through this time without being aware of what we do and the impact of our actions. Karmically speaking, this new position will probably bring wars and protests like we’ve never seen before.
But through all this violence, suffering and cruelty, we will finally learn that Love is the Key.
Chiron was an educator ( today’s coach/mentorship), and he was especially good with boys. He taught them the skills they needed to become men: medicine, music, archery, hunting, and prophecy. And although he was married, his love of his young male students surfaces in many stories, his attachment to Dionysus, for example.
