Chiron represents our deepest wounds, and our efforts to heal ourselves. Chiron makes us face our deep spiritual wounds and feelings of inadequacy, and learn to rise above them.
However, the wounds it addresses goes deep, and we may have to work hard to overcome them. Chiron provides us with the potent healing powers, and opens us to new learnings throughout the experience.
Chiron is, thus, a healer and a teacher. But we may tend to over-compensate in the areas of life that we feel is inadequate.
It is, therefore, useful to explore the house that Chiron occupies in a person's Natal Chart.
Chiron in First House:
When Chiron resides in the first house, it indicates a journey of self-discovery. These natives find a personal meaning to their existence. They may do so by being aggressive or by withdrawal. Some of them may consciously use Chiron's energy and direct it to become a charismatic, unforgettable leader. They may also become teachers or professional healers.
These natives usually have sufferings (or deep feelings) of being placed under restrictions, or having to fight to get noticed, in their early childhood. Having a job or an interest that they really enjoy helps them to overcome early wounds.
Chiron in Second House:
When Chiron resides in the second house, it indicates self-confidence, as long as there are physical comforts. These natives have a deep interest in balance - both achieving and maintaining it. They usually have a deep definition of values, and may be stubborn or dismissive of other's opinions. Some of them even tend to be judgemental and proselytize about other's values.

Chiron in Third House:

They tend to undergo a number of wasteful experiences during their process to learn by trial and error. Some of them develop a lack of confidence.

Chiron in Fifth House:

Some of them develop obsessive or unusual sexual patterns, and a tendency for sexual experimentation.

Chiron in Sixth House:

Chiron in Eighth House:
When Chiron resides in the eighth house, it
In the eighth house, it may indicate losses through the death of loved ones but also gains through births. Personal desires will be very important to you, to the point of ‘anything goes’. You will have psychic abilities that, when trained, will be a great force for good. You could be a mystic with great insight.
Chiron in the Eighth:
Your path of healing and initiation may involve a major struggle with the issues of desire for sex, money, power and immortality. You are extremely perceptive of others' desires, and can read people at the deepest levels. You may be tempted to use this knowledge to manipulate or control others. This placement can endow you with the highest awareness if the desire nature can be mastered, and conversely, can manifest as an obsessive need for power and control that is very difficult to overcome. Your initiation involves learning to release deep childhood trauma so that you are able to let go of the compelling desire nature and open to the kundalini force that transforms and empowers you spiritually as you submit to its wisdom. It is especially important with this placement not to give your power away to a 'master' or teacher
Chiron in Ninth House:
When Chiron resides in the ninth house, it
In the ninth house, it may indicate some crisis to do with spiritual teaching. A strong belief of one sort or another that must be channeled correctly to give the right balance. Being the eternal student should be enjoyable, not stressful, so take time to relax. You could be a very good teacher, if your extreme opinions are modified.
Chiron in the Ninth:
Your initiatory crisis has to do with connecting to and resonating with the Higher Self in this lifetime. You have a natural interest in philosophy and spirituality, you may feel driven to discover ultimate truths and convey them to others. You naturally embody spirituality, and though you convey great wisdom to others and may even be considered an adept, you long intensely for complete 'ensoulment', full, conscious expression of your soul essence. As you follow this quest, you may experience pronounced imbalances, you will probably follow a number of teachings and disciplines, and may be tempted to believe that the answers you have found are best for everyone. May be a tendency to fanaticism.
Chiron in Tenth House:
When Chiron resides in the tenth house, it
In the tenth house, it may indicate a strong desire to prove your self-worth because of childhood rejection. Your need for status may become obsessive, and your good leadership quality needs to be controlled. Improving the lot of others, close to you, is admirable but not if it brings you down. It will only make you feel resentful and bitter. Try to accept yourself as you are.
Chiron in the Tenth:
The lesson for Chiron in the Tenth has to do with finding true purpose on the Earth plane. The tenth house is about goals, achievement and recognition, and always implies a great deal of drive and motivation. When the effort is on behalf of a transpersonal vision, it becomes a sacred purpose. With Chiron here, you have authority, though you may try not to own it. You have great power, which could create conflicts in your being. Your only solution and healing are to accept the power inherent within you. This may typically happen around the time of the 'Saturn return', between the ages of 28 and 30. At that time you are more able to separate from the projections of parents and other role models from childhood. If you were pushed to achieve, you may have a reactionary aversion to success and power. The key to your Chironic realization is the mastery of power as a sacred gift. The more you can identify your power expression and live it out, the more you will both find your healing and give your ultimate gift.
Chiron in Eleventh House:
When Chiron resides in the eleventh house, it
In the eleventh house, it may indicate rejection from peers because of being ‘different’. You may feel some discomfort in large groups, so you only associate with people of like mind. You have a capacity for leadership, if only you would loosen-up with strangers – we are, after all, connected to everything and everyone. You have a special thing to do in this life, you ‘just’ have to realize what it is.
Chiron in the Eleventh:
In this house the crisis of Chironic awareness has to do with the possibility of playing a unique role in your culture. It is imperative to give your gift, and Chiron's influence is to push you to develop your creativity and idealism. You are probably very individualistic or eccentric and have a sense of a great personal destiny. The key to fulfilling it is to release it from the hold of ego and understand that the universal energy flows when you are willing to be a conduit and not try to own it. It is likely that you are much closer to manifesting your ideal than you realize, and the only thing keeping you from fulfillment is the attachment to ego. Therefore, you need to master detachment. As you understand this you are able to activate your free will and higher purpose.
Chiron in Twelfth House:
When Chiron resides in the twelfth house, it
In the twelfth house, it may indicate nervous tension, perhaps picked up from a close family member. You probably have psychic, empathic and healing abilities. Don’t keep shutting yourself off from people – they need your unique abilities. Help others by learning to use these ‘gifts’ – it will give great, personal benefit but you will need to be emotionally strong and mature.
Chiron in the Twelfth:
This signifies the potential to experience cosmic immersion, to enter deeply into mysticism. Mysticism is a conscious choice, and one that comes naturally with this Chiron placement. The twelfth house is ruled by Neptune, who connects us with the realms beyond time and rationalism. Finding methods to develop the right brain functions [intuition, imagination, dreams and symbolism], connect us with the power of twelfth house Chiron, and bring awareness into multi-dimensional relational thought patterns. You are deeply intuitive and aware of the non-physical realms of reality. Your mind is intensely curious and probing, and you are able to give your gift as you cultivate that inner knowing and allow conscious awareness of previous lifetimes to emerge. You have come in this time to fulfill a very high purpose. The path may be a difficult one, because the goal is very high.
