Chiron in Aries and You

In my previous post on Chiron in Aries, I focused on the qualities of this placement for the collective. For all of us, Chiron in Aries will be bringing forward themes of self-confidence and courage. I also shared my experience as a natal Chiron-in-Aries person. This post will focus on Chiron in Aries as it relates to each Sun Sign.


Chiron is bringing a different medicine to each sign. Our work is to become aware of what childhood pattern holds us back from taking action toward our desires.


Chiron will be in Aries:


Now through 6/19/2026


And (after dipping into Taurus) will retrograde back into Aries from:


9/17/2026 - 6/14/2027


Here’s my take on the next 7-8 years of Chiron in Aries for your Sun Sign. You may glean additional insights, however, by reading for your Moon and Rising Signs, if you know them.


Aries


The Medicine: Claiming your power

It’s time to confront what has kept you from from taking the lead in your life. Where have you given your power over to other people, or to situations that seem beyond your control? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you felt at the mercy of one or more dominant personalities around you. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to take the reins of your life and act decisively. In this, you claim your power.


Taurus


The Medicine: Finding peace in stability

It’s time to confront what has kept you feeling insecure. Where have you allowed a feeling of lack--materially or otherwise--deplete your self-confidence? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you experienced a true lack of resources, and/or very real losses. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to create stability in your life today by making wise and practical choices. In this, you can attain a feeling of peace that supports you in all areas of life.


Gemini


The Medicine: Connecting with your audience

It’s time to confront what has kept you from teaching, writing, or telling your story. Where have you allowed fear stop you from using your voice, literally or figuratively? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which it was not safe to speak your mind. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to reach out to others and communicate with skill. In this, you can find your audience and tribe by using the power of your words.


Cancer


The Medicine: Claiming your place in the world

It’s time to confront what has kept you from having the structure of life that you want. Where have you kept yourself small in order to stay safe, thus blocking you from the home and/or work life you desire? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which it was not safe to stand out, to be seen, or to be recognized. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to become more visible in the world and to make accomplishments. In this, you can create a balanced of home and work life which offers sustained emotional contentment.


Leo


The Medicine: Exploring through risk

It’s time to confront what has kept you from expanding your horizons. Where has fear of the unfamiliar kept you from adventure? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you were taught that taking a risk would lead to humiliation, failure, or at worst, real danger. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to go beyond your comfort zone. In this, you are able to gain a renewed sense of optimism and lust for life.


Virgo


The Medicine: Practicing intimacy

It’s time to confront what has kept you from deepening your relationships. Where has fear of revealing your (self-perceived) imperfections kept you from experiencing authentic connection? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you were made to feel as though you had to behave “perfectly” in order to receive love. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to view your closest relationships as a work-in-progress. In this, you are able to share more of who you really are.


Libra


The Medicine: Balancing power with others

It’s time to confront what has kept you from having mutually satisfying relationships. Where has fear of “upsetting the apple cart” kept you from having a sense of balance in your closest friendships and partnerships? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you were shown that in order to be in relationship, you had to give something up, or disown some part of yourself. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can ask for what you need from your friends and your partner, and that you deserve to have those needs met. In this, you are able to find a sense of fairness in your relationships.


Scorpio


The Medicine: Using your skills in service

It’s time to confront what has kept you from sharing your considerable skills. Where has fear of your ability to impact, even transform, the lives of others kept you “hiding your light under a bushel”? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you were shamed for your innate abilities instead of praised for them, made to feel as if some part of your personal power was something to be feared. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to be proud of your skills, then offer them in service to others. In this, you will find deeper satisfaction in your daily work.


Sagittarius


The Medicine: Allowing yourself to play

It’s time to confront what has kept you from experiencing the release of childlike play. Where has fear of wasting time kept you from giving yourself the gift of playtime? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you were made to feel as though your exuberance and pure childlike expression were unwelcome, or “too much, too loud, too...too.” Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to have unstructured time in your life for exploration and fun. In this, you will find the room to experience joy.


Capricorn


The Medicine: Opening your heart to family

It’s time to confront what has been keeping you from fully relaxing into the emotional connections you have within your home situation. Where has fear kept you from asking for what you really need from those in your family (blood or not)? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you were made to feel as though you could not trust or rely on others: you had to take care of yourself. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can discern who has stood the test of time, and who is trustworthy. These people are your real family, and you can share your burdens with them. In this, you will be able to relax into mutually supportive family bonds.


Aquarius


The Medicine: Sharing your unique genius

It’s time to confront why you have been hiding your unique way of thinking. Where has fear made you attempt to fit in by staying quiet? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you were told that your ideas were weird, or even crazy. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to share your perceptions and catalyze a change in the way others think about the world around them. In this, you find fulfillment through making a positive impact by speaking your truth.


Pisces


The Medicine: Finding self-acceptance

It’s time to confront what has kept you from self-acceptance. Where has fear kept you setting the bar higher and higher for yourself, so that self-love continually eludes you? This behavior is likely rooted in a childhood situation in which you were made to feel that your basic essence was unacceptable in some way. Have compassion for the child in you who withstood those circumstances. But know that today, you can choose to love and accept yourself, exactly as you are. In this, you will find peace.
