Chiron placed in the 7th house of a natal chart indicates some emotional wounds connected with how the native perceives his close relationships.The seventh house rules partnerships, no matter if they are between us and our significant others, or of a business nature. Chiron’s presence here shows unresolved traumas concerning the concept of unification. It can signify early disappointments in the native’s love life relationships, and a subconscious fear to tie one’s reality to another person.
Generally, asteroid Chiron is responsible for traumas and their healing; thus the house where it is placed is a rather sensitive area of the native’s life. In case that the asteroid is negatively aspected, especially by Mars, Saturn or Pluto, the native may have experienced quite a lot of suffering. On the other hand, a well-aspected Chiron indicates abilities of healing other people in the respective life area, as the native has amassed a lot of wisdom through his own experiences.
Chiron in the house of relationships can indicate problems in the native’s parents relationship. Their marriage may have been quite unstable or even ended by a divorce, and the young native naturally perceives partnerships as something stressful. This can make him rather hesitant to enter some deep union, as fears of disharmony or rejection may constantly crawl in his mind. The native may pass long periods of feeling unwanted, even if his relations run rather smooth. The discomfort will frequently come through depressive ideas about a catastrophe that yet is to come in the future. Thus, a 7th house Chiron person may delay his marriage or even prefer to never unite formally with another person.
The same patterns can appear in career relationships, where the individual will feel often suspicious about possible partners. The native will not sign contracts easily, and will definitely prefer to create a company alone rather than include other people as co-owners. Yet, Chiron does not indicate failures when uniting forces with others. The asteroid affects mostly the native’s own perception, and not directly the events connected with his partnerships. Also, Chiron’s placement can show us early life traumas more than future situations, and can also bear some karmic debts from previous lives.
With an adversely aspected natal Chiron, the native was probably forced towards some type of partnership during his young ages. Alternatively, he has become witness of unhealthy or painful relationships, becoming convinced that he needs to protect himself from similar behaviors. Soft aspects to the asteroid mainly imply that those experiences did not hurt him deep, but actually granted him wisdom concerning such matters.
Even though a 7th house Chiron person may mess up with his own partnerships, his abilities of consulting others may be exquisite. The native can excel in advising others about their relationships, and can even become a good psychologist for couples. Chiron can unveil to him the destructive patterns that can poison a marriage, while also the antidotes to heal from them. In addition, the native’s own inability to merge with a significant other can inspire him in helping others achieve that. Furthermore, this placement can be also good for becoming a catalyst between two or more sides in a business partnership. The native can aid all sides find the necessary balances in order to function properly, or work out possible disputes and problems.
Yet, Chiron himself cannot create a professional healer, and more planetary aspects are needed to make the native follow a career as a marriage counselor. Otherwise, the individual will just be considered by his friends as the right person to approach in case they are facing such types of trouble. His advice will give insight and different points of view to anyone who consults him. Also, he will be able to propose strategies or remedies for solving any disbalance. The cumulated wisdom through various observations on partnerships will make the chart owner find the roots of problems, while also possible ways to heal them.
Chiron in the 7th house can also signify a very hurt partner. Your significant other might be an underdog, have low self-esteem or even some form of physical debility. This urges the native to take care of him, becoming the leading partner in the relationship. In such a situation, the healing attributes of Chiron are being awakened, and the native will exercise them on his partner. The chart owner uses this relationship in order to forget his own traumas, which most of the times are of a less sharp nature than his partner’s. Thus, both of them are healed- and in many occasions this mutual progress can be of a karmic nature.
The best way to make Chiron function well when in the 7th house is understanding that you are a self-luminous person. Yes, relationships are important; but even failures concerning them are not the end of the world. Do not allow your fears make you lose a good person who tries to enter your life. Of course, there is always the risk of being hurt again, but fear is the biggest enemy and not failure.
Nevertheless, be careful of not dedicate too much time towards your partners. Maybe the biggest risk you have is giving a lot more than you receive from the other person. Keep some balance between these too, so that it does not happen that you feel used.
If you have this placement, we strongly advise you to examine the natal aspects of Chiron so that you understand the whole big picture. Sometimes, by strengthening the planets that form a positive aspect to Chiron you can indirectly heal yourself, without having to dedicate a lot of time and effort in researching your childhood years with the aid of a professional.
