Natal Chiron in the 6th house of a natal chart indicates some emotional wounds connected with how the native perceives work and service towards others. The sixth house rules employment, health and our daily routines; Chiron’s presence here shows unresolved traumas related to everyday responsibilities. Chiron in the sixth house can also signify an early disappointment in the native’s career, and failures to harmonically cooperate with employers.
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 learnt quite a lot from his own experiences.
Chiron in the house of our daily routines shows that the native as a child did not like to follow the daily advice of his parents. He probably did not like doing his homework, shower or brush his teeth, while also was rejecting their attempts to build him a stable schedule of sleep. Generally, he would prefer to act chaotically and choose his own rhythms. With an adversely aspected natal Chiron, the native was probably forced to follow the parents’ orders. Soft aspects to the asteroid show that the parents were not too strict on such behaviors that he developed, which in turn did not create him deep traumas concerning his routines.
A 6th house Chiron person simply cannot stand the procedures and routines of a working place. He may feel from bored to enslaved, and definitely will prefer to do alternative jobs that do not require a stable timetable or have recurring events. There can be also problems with co-workers or the employer, and a general feeling of not belonging to the place he works.
As the 6th house is connected with health, the placement of Chiron indicates frequent worries about the native’s body condition. Yet, he may stall in such a situation of worry and not act somehow in order to help himself. On the other hand, this natal placement can make him excel in advising others for their health. Such an individual can become a good nutritionist, pharmacist or homeopathic healer. Difficult aspects to Chiron may enlarge phobias about one’s health, leading to hypochondria.
This natal placement is quite good for people who work as healers themselves. Chiron in the 6th can indicate an inclination to become a psychotherapist, or elsehow support people that are in need. Nevertheless, this does not necessarily have to be an official profession. The 6th house is also ruling our service towards others, and the planet Chiron bears strong characteristics of altruism. A 6th house Chiron person can offer his advice and help for free, especially to those that are in an urgent need. Many times, the help provided to people by such an individual has roots in the absence of help from others when he himself was in need. Having experiences such situations himself, his ethics do not allow him to leave someone else helpless.
In addition, a sixth house Chiron person may be an expert in job advice. Even if his own career life does not correspond to the advice he gives, he can offer very helpful tips about working. Usually, such people are the best for supporting their friends and acquaintances through developing strategic patterns that can be used in one’s job surroundings.
The best way to make Chiron function in a good way when in the 6th house, is curiously enough having small pets! The small animals are a 6th house matter, and we all know how important healers they can be themselves. Get closer to a cat or a dog, and let it be your own teacher. You will gradually understand that by synchronizing to them- and even to their biorhythms- you can build a healthy daily routine and soften any possible hard aspects your Chiron has!
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 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.
