This edition of 'Chiron and the Healing Journey' represents a major revision of the best-selling previous editions, first published in 1989. Changes include an entirely new section on the astronomy of Chiron, and how it is reflected in the mythology. The final section 'Spirit of the Age' has been rewritten to address more precisely our contemporary concerns. There is much new case material illustrating Chiron in the horoscope, and the reader is also briefly introduced to other Minor Planets in the same category as Chiron. The mythological base has also been expanded. The ephemerides have been removed, as it is now possible for the reader to obtain on-line information that is both more detailed, and also more accurate.From the Author:
A contemporary classic
Chiron, once a celestial anomaly, is now in a class of its own. In the early 1990s, exciting discoveries within astronomical science yielded for us a new category of objects - THE CENTAURS. Chiron is now considered the major representative of this group which comprises short-orbit comets (21 to date) which cross the paths of the outer planets and Saturn. The symbolism of this is perfect, as Chiron stands for that luminous thread of consciousness which links the different levels of the inner and outer dimensions of our human experience, helping us to make sense of our suffering in a deeply personal way, and thus to release our attachment to it. This book is a classic of original thinking, inspiration, depth of astrological experience and careful research. It has more than stood the test of time, and is appreciated by an ever-growing number of astrologers whose focus is upon the soul's unfoldment through life experience, bitter or sweet. This book has addressed and accompanied the healing journey of many thousands of people all over the world. Further material on Chiron and the Centaurs is written in the book "To the Edge and Beyond", published in 1996 by CPA Press.
