So for any of you who might be Astrology-minded, today marks my exact Chiron Return. Unless you manage to live long enough that your age hits the triple-digits, then the Chiron Return is pretty much going to be a once in a lifetime kind of event.
Interesting that mine happens on April Fool’s Day, too!
Chiron is associated with concepts that revolve around wounds and healing. During the Chiron Return period – which lasts for several months, all told – these issues can be greatly magnified. Profound, sweeping changes and revelations can come through.
Last night – quite possibly even at the precise split-second moment when Chiron was hitting exactitude with the point it had occupied in the sky when I was born – I had a dream that I was visited by the Norse God, Odin.
Not that much happened in the dream. We chatted. We hung out. His Ravens were there. Wolves, too, and Sleipnir (= his eight-legged Horse). Odin is an incredibly complex figure. He and his brothers overthrew and killed their tyrannical father and then built the Earth from his carcass. Odin famously sacrificed himself to himself, manifesting the Runes, and he also gave up one of his eyes so he could drink from the Well of Wisdom.
In my dream, he told me, kindly but firmly, that it’s time for me to stop fucking around, and get busy. Like, in life. Now. And that was about it for the dream. But that’s probably plenty!
Oh, yeah, and I like to draw a Rune each morning to start my day. This morning’s Rune was Ansuz, which literally means…Odin #truestory
So Happy Chiron Return to me…
