I lead 4-day healing intensives to help you get to the root of outstanding issues from this life and many other lifetimes.
Join me for these unique opportunities for transformation!
I use your astrological birth chart, channeled wisdom from Ascended Master Djehuty (a.k.a. Thoth, St. Germain, Merlin, Hermes), information from your own spirit guidance team, and energy work via Archangel Metatron to help you transform and release debris and karma from the past.
Each is for a small group limited to 6. Housing will be available for an additional fee (I’ll have these details toward the end of Summer).
Family and the Conspiracy of Love
October 4-7, 2018
We’ll dig into your birth chart to discern why your soul chose your family, and we’ll clear debris from the past that needs clearing. I’ll explain to you the soul-level contracts you have with them, and we’ll bring understanding and forgiveness to this important part of your history. You can never leave behind your root/1st chakra, so you can’t ignore family issues. The healing way is to bring consciousness and light to them, and that’s exactly what this intensive is about.
The Pluto Intensive
October 25-28, 2018
The deepest fear, pain, anger, grief, shame, and guilt can drive us, preventing us from living the lives we want and need to live. This intensive will take us down into Plutonian territory – there will be much truth-telling to bring light to your shadows. We will also clear debris from many lifetimes that holds you back now while I channel Archangel Metatron and do energy work on all attendees. I consider this intensive to be sponsored by Metatron, as I’ll be channeling him most of the time we’re together, and that leads to transformation.
The Chiron Intensive
November 15-18, 2018
My unique work on Chiron opens minds and hearts, bringing us up to speed on humans’ true natures as energetic and emotional beings. We’ll discuss energy management techniques as we bring your inner Chironic infant to the table. That’s the part who carries a fear that he or she is not worthy of love or, perhaps, is worthy of rejection. I’ll teach you to become the kind of parent for that inner kid that he or she needed when you were that age. A deep and gentle intensive to teach you to become the source of love for yourself so the inner kid no longer has to wait for anyone in order to feel valid and worthy of love.

From attendees of a Family and the Conspiracy of Love intensive:
First, it was absolutely worth the money, worth the time and the effort it took to get there. The opportunity you’re offering for healing and resolution is so unique and huge. It is vitally important for those wanting clarity and stability in their lives and a new perspective on what it means to be here and to be human. The small group of people made for an intimate and safe space to relax into the issues that came up. It was also very therapeutic to be there listening to the others in the group. We’re all so different and yet so similar. It was an amazing experience for me.
An amazing course covering why we are on Earth, why we experience what we do, and providing assistance and tools to deal with trauma. Tom is a very compassionate man and gave meaningful and useful insights from his own stuff which really assisted with relating to my own experiences. Also, the group format really worked well as much of other people’s trauma experiences also related to me. I cried and released more on this intensive than I have ever done before.
I didn’t know what to expect from the Conspiracy of Love workshop, but I am SO glad I went. Tom Jacobs is an authentic, genuine, extremely knowledgeable teacher, and the kind of material he is presenting here is absolutely original work you won’t find anywhere else. For me, it provided the next essential step in my growth. I noticed that when I got home, I had a much stronger sense of my own value across the board. In my freelance work, I felt much more ease in negotiating a difficult contract, and because I was clear on my worth, I got the concessions I sought. There’s no better proof than that that something shifted for me as a result of working with Tom.

The next opportunity to take Evolutionary Astrology Basics I with me to learn my unique approach to soul, astrology, reincarnation, and karma (including how to change it!) begins June 16, 2018.
Here’s the listing from my site (register here or use the PayPal link below):
Evolutionary Astrology Basics I
A six-part webinar to introducing a fast-growing approach to evolutionary astrology.
In this webinar series, I’ll provide you with information on the nature of soul and its multilife journey (as specifically channeled from Ascended Master Djehuty, a.k.a. Thoth, St. Germain, and Merlin). We’ll then proceed through the four steps of karmic analysis central to my evolutionary astrology work: Pluto, the South Node of the Moon, the South Node ruler by sign, and the North Node.
This spiritual, multidimensional approach to astrology will allow you to understand how and why people are wired the way they are and how to help them overcome challenges while making the best choices possible. It is divinely designed to get at the core of root issues that often prevent us from true health and happiness.
Familiarity with astrology basics (planets, signs, houses, and major aspects) is required.
Week 1: The channeled model of soul, reincarnation, and karma that is the basis of my astrology work.
Week 2: Pluto as the empowerment journey the soul sets out for its humans.
Week 3: The South Node of the Moon/North Node as markers of many lifetimes of karmic conditioning.
Week 4: The South Node ruler by sign as revealing the chart holder’s identity and role in many lives.
Weeks 5 & 6: Beginning practice forming sentences using these symbols to discern a karmic story from the chart.
From a student of a previous course covering this material:
I must comment that in listening to the recordings this is an excellent class. You have a powerful innate understanding of what you’re talking about. But, more important than that is how you communicate with such clarity.
The next course is 6 Saturdays: June 16, 23, 30, July 7, 14, 28. 2-4 PM Pacific time (check your time zone here).
Investment: $185 for nonsubscribers, $138.75 for subscribers – contact me to register.
Pretty soon after publishing K2 Crystal Diary 1, I had a unique experience I can attribute only to using and connecting with K2. Then today, another thing happened that seems pretty obviously related.
The day after that post, I went to the gym for a workout. I was making rounds of the weight machines as I do, and saw a bunch of water bottles collected around the base of one when I sat down on it.
The same moment, I noticed that two people were watching me from about 8 feet away. Turns out they were taking a moment’s break between sets, trading off between them. I did my set and moved on to the next one.
The guy of the pair returned to the machine and let me know that he and the woman were using it, and he asked me to ask permission before using it again so they could stay in their rhythm.
I must have had a look on my face because he said, “Don’t take it personally.” I said I wasn’t, but that I would not be asking permission to use a machine. I could feel the energy of dismissing me, so I told him that if he’s using a machine for more than one set, then it’s his job to work around people who are doing circuits and just doing one set at a time. That’s the policy.
The energy of dismissal remained. When I was done on my machine I went to the trainer on duty and told her they were camped out on the machine, that they asked me to ask permission to use, that I would not do so, and that maybe she could let them know about the policy I told him about.
She was a bit taken aback and obviously not into the idea of having to tell anyone anything. But I realized that I wasn’t fired up with Mars-Uranus in the 1st house like usual: neither defensive toward the guy nor feeling threatened. Those two modes would be my norm, even as I’ve worked so hard over the years at healing memories of violence, bullying, trauma, and more from many lifetimes.
(The guy came to her after I walked away and I doubt she corrected his understanding of the policy, but I was fine.)
I got on a treadmill and moved on with my life … except that part of me conditioned to dread conflict and fear violence was unsure if I could really let it go. But I had. But I wasn’t – though I was … it took maybe 15 minutes to relax into not letting it be a thing. Because what happened was that a guy wanted to bend a rule that would have been unfair toward me/others, and I told him as much and that I wouldn’t comply.
That’s it. That’s all that happened.
But the conditioning by trauma can run very deep, so it took some adjustment.
The second event was today, in the car with my girlfriend. When signs on the road indicated that we’d go to one lane in a few hundred feet, a guy in a truck rushed to merge ahead of us, changing lanes without signaling or enough clearance. I had to swerve into the opposing traffic lane (empty at the moment) to avoid him side swiping my car.
So, no accident happened, but I had the adrenaline release you might expect. But with a history of violence and trauma, that kind of thing would ruin literally my whole day. I normally wouldn’t be able to come down from the rush of it until late at night, and thought that would happen again today. I told her not to expect me to be happy and playful again right away – I’d been goofing off for an hour – but it took much less time than normal.
The rush of chemical was there, but I didn’t get stuck in it, and didn’t stay on that note. That was new.
As I thought about each scenario, I realized that the column that programmed K2 stone is creating in me seems to have been aligning my chakras in a way I hadn’t noticed. I did use it with conscious intention-setting almost every day for over a week but, as I noted in the first post, my brain wasn’t working as it normally does with so much time spent carrying moldavite, what I’ve become used to for quite a while.
Most crystals I’ve worked with, and all those I’ve programmed and offered to others so far, seem to help a person best when used with some consistency. With K2, I’m noticing that I can check in with it, holding it for 20 minutes or even just a couple, and then put it aside and go on with my life with it helping.
The other thing I forgot to mention is that when I began holding it and setting intentions, I focused on getting the Soul’s Journey Soundbite Database completed. It’s been on my mind for a year and half and needed a push to finish it.
I didn’t use K2 the next day, but found myself studiously and methodically attacking the to-d0 list. After a handful of days I realized that I had gotten a ton done, and set it up for launch in the process. That’s more organized and focused than I’m accustomed to being.
So it seems that I can plant a seed with intentions while using it and then put it down and benefit from the effects.
About the trauma and alignment, a few months ago I wrote a document about how I see trauma when doing energy work – what it looks and feels like to me as an energy worker.
The diagram at left has boxes that represent elements of the energy field. You can imagine chakras as the boxes, but it’s sometimes not that specific as trauma imprints can be in the body or subtle bodies and not directly associated with a particular chakra.
Trauma (and chronic stress) can leave a portion of the energy field and consciousness out of place, sort of pushed to the side. I’m feeling my own field a bit reshaped from the K2, and today in meditation I even breathed in through my root/1st chakra and my crown/7th simultaneously, a technique I often bring into channeled meditations and energy work events and sessions. (To try this, get my free 13-minute grounding meditation from tdjacobs.com – click on the green forest path pic.)
K2 is granite, great for grounding, with circles/blobs of azurite, which is high-vibrating. The combination is said to help you reach your greatest potential, getting grounded while also raising your vibration. What I’m seeing the last few days is that aligning the field and consciousness is an early step in the effects K2 can have, as trauma and things in your field otherwise being out of whack will definitely hold you back from what you can and want to do.
Stay tuned for more. And when my road trip to and from UAC is done in early June, I’ll be posting programmed K2 pieces to my site so you can experience this, too.

The Soul’s Journey Soundbite Database is revolutionary new learning tool allows you to search almost 500 evolutionary astrology mp3 readings for particular placements and patterns, and then listen to the mp3s and see the associated charts.
(If you’re not familiar with Soul’s Journey Soundbites, they are 20-minute prerecorded mp3 readings covering the major themes of your multilife journey using the configurations of Pluto, the South Node of the Moon, its ruler by sign, and the North Node. Clients I’ve never met and know nothing about frequently tell me after hearing their Soundbites that I know them better than anyone in their lives.)
Let’s say that you want to understand more about what it means to have Pluto in Libra, or Pluto in the 10th house. Or maybe you want to learn about how to interpret a planet conjunct or square the South Node of the Moon, or one conjunct the North Node. You can search for these terms in the database and listen to my evolutionary astrology delineations while viewing the chart.
Going a little deeper, let’s say you’re curious about how I would advise a client to deal with Pluto in the 4th house (the house associated with the Moon) when Moon is in hard aspect to the Pluto, the South Node, or the South Node ruler (indicating that Moon issues trip the person up in various ways in many lifetimes). You can listen to the Soundbites in which those configurations coexist.
In each Soundbite I describe the karmas – beliefs attached to deep emotions – the person is dealing with, as well as provide suggestions for changing karma by changing beliefs and behaviors.
This will be an invaluable learning tool for your evolutionary astrology studies!
As of today’s launch, there are 488 records. (About 30 do not have charts attached due to a data loss a few years ago.) The mp3 readings total over 160 hours.

In early March I picked up two smallish pieces of K2 at a metaphysical fair, just drawn to them clearly and immediately. After paying for them and walking back to my table, I felt amazing.
It was a bit similar to when I first picked up a handful of larimar pieces at a gem show, when I felt I might fly up into the air from a joy overload to the sound of an ascending slide whistle.
But with K2, I was grounded. So, I felt my field rise in vibration immediately, but while I was still anchored fully in my body. I’ve worked hard to cultivate that kind of effect over years, getting consistently grounded so that different things don’t take me out of sanity, clarity, and confidence. But to pick up a stone and feel that so quickly was intriguing.
By the time I got back to my table with the stones in my hand, my voice was huge. It was almost leaping out of me, bounding into the large convention hall just saying “hello” to people. I felt my 5th chakra open but also full, and a bit overflowing. The feeling was wonderful.
I purchased over 20 smaller pieces shortly after, smaller than the two I first bought, and programmed all of them, sitting with them in my hands, meeting the vibration they’re giving off, and sending more of it into the stone. This is part of how I learn about a stone while it also activates them to do what they do much more quickly and stronger than usual.
Since my first impression was so positive, I had faith that I could use these for something particular and offer them to others as healing tools. For two months I’ve been reading what people online have to say about them, and looking for a thread that makes sense to me given my experience.
Finding a Thread; Making a Connection
But there’s an issue: When I pick them up I feel amazing, but I don’t think and plan the way I normally do. Or, better said, I’m not inclined to be mental and verbal in my usual ways. As a result, I haven’t been sure how to articulate what they do or what you can expect if you get a programmed K2 from me.
But there’s progress: Tonight I realized that my normal groove the last number of months has been the focus and clarity of programmed moldavite, which I’ve been using every single day for a quite a while. Moldavite has a forward-looking, forward-nudging energy to it (I feel it related to the expansiveness and hopefulness of Sagittarius/Jupiter). I can imagine scenarios and intuitively pick the ones it’s right to follow and manifest.
With K2, however, I feel high-vibrating and aligned as a column between spirit and matter (the granite in it is grounding, while the azurite raises your vibration), and it feels simply awesome. I feel like I can do anything, yet it’s a kind of fully-present thing, not forward-looking, not active or productive.
The last couple of days I’ve been nudged by spirit to hold them and do some imagination work just as I’ve done with programmed moldavite so often for so long. Tonight I began to see how K2 offers simply a different nudge to the shape of consciousness than moldavite does, and I’m simply accustomed to moldavite.
I’ve wondered if K2 is best used to return to positivity when I get off track, or to remind myself that I can vibrate very highly even when I’m in a week-long processing of some emotional/karmic issue that requires feeling less than positive. It’s been good for that in not forcing me to forget or ignore the feelings but bringing in an empowered, high energy that I feel all throughout my body and field.
What They Say
K2 is said to help you reach your highest potential on this 3D plane, and I feel that to be true. The grounding effect is very important and actually is “softer” than the grounding of tiger iron and hematite, which lend a seriousness and, frankly, a heaviness to being in the body. Most of us do need that heaviness to remind us to get and stay in our bodies, so it’s not at all a bad thing.
K2 is also said to help you access the Akashic Records, which I already do all the time. Also it’s said to help channels get higher messages and sort through what’s true in those communications, which I already am in practice in daily. So those two things I can’t personally test out. And I don’t get headaches due to psychic blockages, another thing it’s said to help.
As it’s said to help with clear communications, I thought tonight I’d record this info in an audio diary, something I love doing and posting on SoundCloud. But I don’t have the push to speak and, actually, I felt/feel a bit non-verbal as I held/hold the programmed K2 for a while as I thought/think about doing this diary.
It’s not the non-verbal, placid total presence of when I first used hematite, wherein I had zero impulse or desire to use my voice. Instead, it’s a peaceful awareness that I don’t need to use my energy right now to cause my voice to bring you these ideas.
This makes me think it could help when trying to write but somehow distracted with my Sagittarius stellium (Neptune-Mercury-Moon) or my Mars-Uranus in the 1st house. Both of those can have me antsy and lose focus again and again (don’t get me started on what it’s like for me to try to follow recipes), neither of which I feel now as I sit with the K2 and relax to let it meet me.
It’s also described as having effects both hard and soft on you – physically and energetically/emotionally. The mica, feldspar, and azurite in it are soft while the granite is hard. I as write this and there’s oh-so-minor activity in the house, I realize that the grounded focus that enables writing is a bit tender, and I’m easily distracted.
It looks like the next phase of research will be about working with K2 to write but in as quiet an atmosphere as I can find.
Stay tuned for more.
Check out all my programmed crystals at tdjacobs.com. I have at least one for each chakra, and I’m happy to do prescriptions for those looking to work on/with particular life issues and want some guidance.
For several years I taught a course by phone and web called Intuitive Skills Development. In it, I lead students through a process to catalogue and learn about each chakra. I taught the to face their fears, self-doubts, and judgments about themselves and others so their natural intuitive gifts could open with more flow and confidence.
The answer to the oft-asked questions, “How can I know my guides? How can I be more intuitive? How can I trust myself more?” rests in you learning to alter your relationship with fear, pain, shame, and other unhappy frequencies. All intuitive work happens over loving frequencies, so the way to open things up is to bring more love to your doubts and other shadows.
Toward the end of those years, something seemed off. I realized that I’d been working to teach the material in better and better ways, but it wasn’t what I wasn’t doing – it was the structure of the course that was the issue: Students needed much more time to process the lower-chakra issues from their pasts, and those 3 chakras are central to building a sane, loving self with a solid emotional, psychological, and spiritual foundation. With that in mind I stopped teaching it, but with the intention to develop a more effective replacement.
When I released The Chakra Course, which collects Ascended Master Djehuty’s (Thoth, St. Germain, Merlin, Hermes) teachings on the 7 major chakras including how to resolve issues and heal, I knew a live component so students could work with me directly was also necessary.
On June 10, 2018 I’ll teach the first The Lower Chakra Live Course to fill that need. Anyone who has purchased and has been working with Part 1 of The Chakra Course is eligible to register.
My idea is that you’ve taken your time working through the lower-chakra material in The Chakra Course on your own, then to the live course you’ll bring your deeper, bigger questions as well as your own personal stuck places and resistance to healing.
Central to my work is honoring the naysayers within, those parts of self who resist letting go of a past hurt, guilt, grief, shame, anger, or anything else for whatever reason. Those parts of us have become identified with those feelings (and the experiences that inspired them), and true growth and healing absolutely requires respecting this fact and shifting our relationship with those parts of us.
Shaming shame will never yield growth! Same with being ticked off that you’re angry, embarrassed that you’re self-conscious, and so on.
The live course will be a small group (4-5 students) and we’ll work through the deeper, tougher issues for which you could use some support. It also is a community we create together, respecting each other’s processes and reminding one another that all things can be healed.

Chiron recently entered Aries, shifting its energy considerably from the absorbency and openness of Pisces to the self-directed call of Aries to be courageous.
I encourage people to move away from the idea that Chiron can be either wounded or the wounded healer, and that these two roles are the only ones open to Chironic people.
When we understand Chiron as a marker of energetic and emotional sensitivity, we can see wounding and healing as responses to it. It’s a very different view, and I love seeing the light bulbs go off for people when they open their minds to this approach.
To get the full story on my unique approach this centaur, check out The Chiron Course (11.5 hours of audio cover myth, archetype, and astrology – click here then scroll down), its transcription Chiron, 2012, and the Aquarian Age, and the Chiron Natal Report, which explains your natal Chiron placement and aspects, as well as transits and progressions to Chiron and transits of Chiron to your chart.
First, a return in astrology is when a body transiting in the sky hits the same degree and minutes as your own natal placement of that body. An infusion of energy results, making the body louder in your personality, or making you louder in expressing it.
With Chiron, it’s about sensitivity to energy and emotion. We’re so sensitive to others’ energies that we can believe they’re rejecting us when they’re not. That sense of being rejected starts when we’re very young, often as infants, and a part of us gets shaped to believe that if we express a particular part of ourselves, we’ll lose love and support.
Around the Chiron return at age 50 (since Chiron’s orbit around the Sun is 50.42 years), it’s normal for a person to be much more sensitive to a few things in self and other. These include emotions, needs, pain/suffering, loneliness, and rejection issues.
If the Chironic infant within us doesn’t mature at some point, then we’re carrying around a part of self hypersensitive to rejection, one who is accustomed to making mountains out of mole hills about how he or she isn’t loved, safe, supported, or worthy of investment and care.
At the Chiron return, this part of the self will be more on the surface. Many find they need to spend more time alone to process feelings and external stimulation from normal, day-to-day living, wondering what’s wrong with them.
But nothing is. It’s that a door into making emotionally supportive contact with a wounded, rejected inner kid is open, and that first looks like the kid sharing through your feelings in the moment what he or she is experiencing.
For those with Chiron natally in Aries (births from April 1968 to March 1977, minus some at the beginning and end of that period when it dips into or retros to an adjacent sign), the Chironic wounding from infancy is about desire, self-assertion, and the perception of having the right to say “yes” and “no” when appropriate.
A person with this placement might assert an opinion or idea but take way too personally when others don’t respond, criticize him or her, or want something else. Conflict is an especially important issue for those with this placement, as there’s a wounding to the warrior spirit, specifically in knowing that one has the right to stand up for the self and, if necessary, defend against threats.
In some, it can feel that they don’t have the right to exist. This can make for some unhelpful beliefs about how worthy the person is in general.
At the Chiron return, these people will experience a heightened sensitivity to issues surrounding anger, violence, intimidation, desire, sexuality, and will. They may feel a great deal of frustration because they (believe they) can’t have what they want, or if something is taken away from them or they have to compete with someone else for something.
If they have lived with a suppressed and stifled will for most of their lives due to the original wounding of rejection in infancy, at the Chiron return it could be that anger rises to the surface in new ways, and with new intensity. If they haven’t been shown how to deal with anger – especially if they’ve been taught that anger is inappropriate and they shouldn’t feel it – then there could be some emotional eruptions as the inner infant comes to the surface and the person simply can no longer hide this very real part of the self.
All Chiron returns challenge us to get more in touch with our needs, feelings, and past hurts. In Aries, it’s a lot about the need to be treated as sovereign (in charge of one’s life), potential feelings of inadequacy when it comes to standing up for the self, and past hurts from when their will and desire were stifled, ignored, shamed, or overlooked.
The return for those with Chiron in Aries will last over a year, for some upwards of two. But the questions that arise can in some take longer to deal with. If you have this placement, be easy on yourself and take the time you need to tune into what you feel and need, and what about you might feel insecure about.
The door is open around your return to feel more vulnerable, to need to admit more emotional sensitivity – and tend to it in mature, responsible ways. You must become now the parent for your inner infant that you needed when you were young.

My featured programmed crystals for Taurus 2018 are hematite and larimar. Throughout the month I’ll be sharing materials on what they do, how to use them in general, and how to use them to make the most of the invitations of the solar month of Taurus.
During Aries, we bring forward new inspiration. We act on impulses after getting into our bodies and seeing what fire is there to burn. In Taurus, we slow down and learn what essentials are necessary to ensure survival. Grounding, being in the body, and shedding old beliefs to align with higher truth will help us in this process.
See the new video below on these two crystals and how to use them to maximize the opportunity of Taurus, then see available programmed hematite and larimar pieces and order yours.

During the solar months of Taurus and Gemini (April 19 – June 21, 2018), when you subscribe to my evolutionary astrology forecasting service for a year, I’ll give you a $70 credit toward channeled and astrology audio, audio courses, and/or ebooks and paperbacks.
Subscribing yearly already has you paying for 11 months and getting 12 ($319 instead of $348).
And so but here’s a key thing: All audio (save one audio course – The Chakra Course) and paperbacks are half off for my subscribers. So, except for that course, you’re actually getting more like $140 in credit.
To be clear, you’ll pay $319 during Taurus or Gemini and get $459 in channeled insight and astrological analysis and teaching from me.
This is open to:
My current monthly subscribers who want to transition to a yearly subscription
My current yearly subscribers who want to renew now to get this bonus, even if their renewal time is months away
Recently I posted to YouTube the analysis subscribers received of the Libra full moon from late March. Watch the excerpt below and check out my YouTube channel for other subscriber video excerpts to get a sense of the depth I go into for my subscribers every month:

Chiron entered Aries shortly after 1 am Pacific time today, shifting the emphasis from Pisces, where it’s been for some years. Its elliptical orbit has it spend more time in Pisces and Aries than other signs.
In Pisces, we’ve been dealing with how to respond with compassion to the trends in the world and the collective. For most, though, it’s really been about how to deal with energy and emotion. Choosing compassion is a mature, evolved way to deal with the pain and suffering in others and the world around us.
But in Pisces, we’ve been at times overwhelmed by what’s floating in the collective surrounding us, and we’ve had to navigate life with a new level of awareness of how energetically and emotionally sensitive we are.
In Aries, it’s more about a feeling of having the right to exist, desire, say “yes” and “no” when we need to, acting to create self-respect, and learning to trust our instincts and gut-level truth.
(Then it will dip back into Pisces from late September 2018 to early February 2019, for the record.)
When it’s in Aries, we’ll be dealing with our relationship with conflict. This will play itself out on the individual and collective levels, even potentially with some brinkmanship and threats to play chicken as people (world leaders?) puff themselves up to look tough and then have to admit that they don’t want to fight after all.
On the individual level, we’re going to be invited to evaluate our relationship with assertion, which will call up our histories with aggression. And this will require that we face with a grounded compassion and realism that none of us likes or wants to support violence and those who tell us that it’s how the world works (and should).
Don’t be surprised if you become even more sensitive (allergic) both to violence portrayed in media and competitive scenarios that might seem to involve bullying.
Admit your vulnerability and sensitivity – be honest about how Aries energy affects you and always has. This can be a great opportunity to heal the effects of violence, abuse, bullying, as well as learn to embrace what we truly desire when we allow our energetic and emotional sensitivity to inform how we live our lives.
My take on Chiron does not stop with the prevalent wounded-wounded healer business. I treat Chiron as an energy antenna, and I view wounding and healing as results of being sensitive to energy.
Humans experience energy and respond emotionally, so when someone’s upset across the room and you pick up on it, that person is feeling emotion and his or her energy is activating you, and you’re responding by feeling that same emotion or, perhaps, doing what you can not to have to.
It takes a channeled teaching I received from Ascended Master Djehuty (a.k.a. St. Germain, Thoth, Merlin, Hermes) on energy and emotion and turns it into an astrology teaching about Chiron. I’d asked this being several times in 2008 what would happen in 2012, and his answer was a series of teachings on Chiron about opening the heart, learning to deal better with our emotions, and learning about ourselves as energetic beings.
In this teaching, Chiron’s first wound is at birth, when his mother rejects him. Most of us carry a primary wound of rejection from when we were too young to deal with it – anywhere from the moment of birth to around 18 months of age, I’ve found (though it will be reinforced and retriggered at older ages in childhood, too).
When we focus on the 2nd wound, when he’s poisoned and can’t figure out how to heal himself, we set ourselves up for believing that death is preferable to pain, which I frankly find ridiculous.
When we focus on the 1st wound, we can fill in the gaps that our parents and families might have not filled in if we didn’t feel safe, validated, supported, and loved by them in the ways that we needed. We can now become the parents for ourselves that we needed then, getting over barriers to being loving and being willing to be vulnerable and be in our hearts.
I’ve recently made the Chiron Natal Report available. It covers your natal house and sign (and if yours is retrograde), natal aspects, transits and progressions to your natal Chiron, and transits of Chiron to the rest of your natal chart.
It explains my take on Chiron’s myth, including going into detail about the 1st wound, the rejection at birth. I also explain how Chiron’s call to self-validation and self-love is the key to the Aquarian Age, a major shift of astrological ages we’re currently living through.
