Both Chiron and Pisces have a lot in common. Chiron is the wounded healer, a centaur creature made up of a hybrid half man, half horse. Pisces is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions from one another. Both have dual symbolism that creates understanding of more than one viewpoint or position.
Pisces is well-known for its ability to stand in a place of seeing both sides of anything, which, is why, many a seasoned parent of a Pisces child will tell you Not to give a Pisces child too many options. They literally see the benefits and drawbacks of both sides of an issue or choice making it almost impossible for them to make a quick decision! (Imagine standing in line at Baskin Robbins with this kid ahead of you!)
Pisces people are known best for their deep empathy, compassion, and sensitivity to others pain. Often this sensitivity can hinder them by causing them to over-invest themselves in the healing of others, generally to the detriment of their own mental and emotional well-being.
One of the biggest lessons for those with this sign in Chiron, is learning to distance themselves or cultivate a working sense of detachment. This sign, beyond all others, has the unique and often worrisome ability to physically feel pain simply by witnessing the pain of others. A fact which can lead them to emotional overload.
Pisces healers invest their time and abilities in the assistance of others. They must be very careful not to become overly dramatic or manipulative when assisting those closest to them. They have the ability to use their amazingly dramatic flair to justify actions they find slightly benefits them by ascertaining that this is for the good of everyone. Fooling themselves into a place of self-deception.
This is, of course, at their uncommon worst. Most Chiron with the Pisces sign recognize where the line needs to be drawn between assisting and interfering.
Pisces Chiron invest themselves in assisting in causes that matter to them. From donating time to donating money, these folks consider helping others as helping themselves.
The common thread between Chiron and Pisces is the potential to suffering. Pisces sees suffering as noble and Chiron considers suffering to be an unavoidable fact of life.
With this mindset a very real danger of becoming stuck into a cycle of suffering and pain is present. They almost refuse to accept that one is not required to suffer just to prove that they are working hard to improve themselves. They might actually see suffering as proof that they are trying and that if they are not suffering others may think they aren’t moving forward.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. They need to understand that suffering is only a symptom to overcome and not the actual larger problem they are looking to heal.
Another thing that those with this sign must be cautious with, is their ability to draw those with wounds to them because they are filled with such an abundance of compassion and love. If not adequately prepared these loving souls can lose themselves, buried under the pain of those surrounding them. Like being physically pushed underwater by those you are attempting to save from drowning.
In order to manage their natures they would do very well to practice and learn the art of counseling with detachment. By learning these helpful techniques and giving themselves emotional tools that offer support, they can have the best of both worlds. The ability to assist people and the emotional distancing that allows them to separate themselves from the process of another’s healing. They need to learn the methods of Interdependent not codependent behavior. A healthy understanding of how detachment aids them in their work, goes a long way toward protecting their somewhat fragile core. After all, Pisces ability to love and care soo profoundly should be a celebrated talent not the sword by which Pisces is fatally injured.
