Chiron and being observant

I would like to say some things about this combination of observation and Chiron. First, let’s begin with simple definition: what doea it mean to be observant?
1. quick to notice or perceive; alert.
2. looking at, watching, or regarding attentively; watchful.
3. careful in the observing of a law, custom, religious ritual, or the like.
Well, how do these 3 definition related to Chiron, the planet known as the wounded and the wounder?
To understand this we need to go back to the original story, the mythology of Chiron.
Chiron got wounded from a poisoned arrow. Since he was a teacher for memdicine (at the greeks times there was no medicine as we know it today, there was mainly herbal healing madicine) he used this incident to teach his students about the human body and the healing options. (further reading can be made here –
while most astrologers focus on the heroic character and the victimized personality and circumctanses, I would like to say few words about the observation, and its tight relation to chiron and virgo. getting wounded was not the issue in this story. the real exeptional element in Chiron’s behaviour was actually 2 things:
1. the fact that he wounded himself and
2. the wound’s relation to observation and Chiron’s ability to plat 3 different roles at once: being the one who experience the pain, being the one who observes and watches his own suffering and being the one who describes it for the benefit of the others.
Most people are not heroes and are not saints, even if sometimes we would like believing so about ourselves. My take on Chiron is that the area in which you have it in your Natal chart would be the area of life in which you tend to be more observant, have better instincts. the time in which Chiron transits your personal planets would be a time for greater observation on certain areas of your life or more generally, observation of yourself and your life.
