Chiron and the Healing Journey by Melanie Reinhart. A wise and fascinating exploration of the nature of the healing experience as delineated in the horoscope, in particular through the archetypal pattern of the Wounded Healer or Shaman. Chiron and the Healing Journey is an indispensible book for anyone wanting to understand the symbolism and meaning of the recently discovered Kuiper Belt object called Chiron.
Extensive mythological, cultural and historical references enrich this book, the first edition of which received critical acclaim from practising astrologers world wide, and became established as a classic text in its field. This major revision contains a wealth of entirely new material, and an elaboration of themes previously included.
I'm currently on a Chiron kick, and bought this book to understand what truly is a complicated subject. I found Chiron and the Healing Journey to be excellent. I am impressed with its quality, especially given the fact that it is exploring a relatively new subject in the field of astrology. The depth and challenges of Chiron are acted out by Melanie Reinhart in her in-depth exploration of this book. My only caveat was what seemed to be some negativity in describing Chiron's effect. For me, that negativity was particularly strong because I had one of the "worst" combinations possible (according to the book) (since I have Pisces in the Gemini-ruled Third House). Reading that was discouraging. On the other hand, some of Melanie Reinhart 's negativity (or at least warning) is necessary, since Chiron is about the "wounded healer" and you need to understand your particular "wound" to understand how to heal it (in yourself and others).
My suggestion to the reader is to acknowledge the somewhat-negative stuff that rings true, but not let it get in the way of really absorbing what otherwise is incredibly powerful information. I think Chiron is one of the most exciting aspects of astrology today, and educating yourself on Chiron can be invaluable. Chiron and the Healing Journey is one of only two books that I know of that allow the reader to understand Chiron in any in-depth way.
Chiron and the Healing Journey is possibly one of the best astrological books ever written. Its clear and lucid style bring to the reader a comprehensive understanding and awareness of the influence of this minor 'planet' within their life. By far and away the best book on Chiron and chironic themes, Melanie Reinhart has written a sensitive, detailed and authoritative work.
An essential book for anyone who is interested in astrology, professionally or otherwise, for an astrological reading is incomplete without reference to Chiron. And an assessment of the influence of Chiron in a natal chart is incomplete without this book. Astrological theory and practice at its best.
