Barbara Hand Clow discusses Chiron's mythological background and history and analyzes its effect in each sign and house in the natal chart.

Chiron is a peculiar planetoid that orbits the Sun from between Saturn and Uranus. Its discovery in 1977 was concurrent with the explosion of divination, alternative healing techniques, and a new hope for a spiritual regeneration. Chiron explores this planet's mythological background and history as well as its effect on astrology.

This comprehensive book includes: * The meaning of Chiron when it appears in each house * The meaning of Chiron in aspect to each planet * The meaning of Chiron through each sign * The mythological legacy of Chiron * A Chiron ephemeris * Chiron in transit * Chiron as a bridge between the inner and outer planets.

Customer Reviews:
I really enjoyed this book! It is one of only two books that I know of that really explain Chiron in depth. Chiron is such an important aspect to astrology, and so few people (certainly very few lay people like myself) actually KNOW about it! I think Barbara Hand Clow does an excellent job on organizing the sections of the book. In particular, I like the fact that she breaks down Chiron's effect by sign and by house, as separate sections. I also like the way Barbara Hand Clow describes how specific kinds of aspects (like Chiron trine Saturn, etc.) affect you, rather than just talking about "aspects" in general. Because Barbara Hand Clow does have so many subsections, some of the subsections are brief and, thus, necessarily superficial. For instance, I would really like to know more about the interaction between Chiron and Pluto when they oppose each other!

Also, I find that part of the focus of the author is based on the aspects of the people in her immediate surroundings, rather than the general public. On the other hand, Barbara Hand Clow speaks of what she knows, and has studied Chiron in relation to a LOT of clients, so her personal knowledge is pretty broad-based. Very upbeat, and fun, book, overall.

I've been an astrologer for 30+ years, and have a large library on the subject. I have a particular fondness for this one because it is the only book, whether on Chiron (of which I have several) or others relevant to chart interpretation, which revealed my "life plan" adequately (which is, as one might surmise, indicated by Chiron's placement in my chart). As for Barbara Hand Clow's references to Nibiru ("the strange planet" another reader spoke of), I thought it pertinent. Of course, I am a Zecharius Sitchin fan, but I think most astrologers believe there is at least one more planet out there (12 signs, 12 planets). Barbara Hand Clow, to some, might be an acquired taste, but ah, the irony of astrology proponents calling others "far out".
