Chiron Transits to Natal Venus – Interpretations

Chiron Transits to Natal Venus - Interpretations

To get a clear picture of what transiting Chiron will do to your Venus, take note of Chiron’s whole story.

In Greek mythology, Chiron’s story is not just about a wound and healing. Chiron’s story is one about abandonment, growth, betrayal, pain, and ultimately, suicide.

Chiron was abandoned by both his mother and father. Later, a close friend accidentally hit Chiron with a poisoned arrow. The poisoned arrow caused Chiron, who was immortal, to live with a pain that was so unbearable that Chiron willingly chose to die in order to escape the pain. He begged for death. The pain was so great that this once-immortal god traded in his immortality for the stillness of death. Chiron, the wise healer, was not able to heal himself.

…unless you consider his death as the ultimate healing, which many do.

With this story of Chiron in mind, it’s difficult to see how any transit from Chiron could end well. Many people assume that they will only experience that part about “growth,” buried there between abandonment, betrayal, pain, and suicide.

Yes, you can learn and grow during Chiron transits. But, you will learn in the school of hard knocks, just like Chiron, who was abandoned at birth, learned. He learned so much that he became a renowned healer, skilled medicine man, skilled martial arts master, trainer, teacher, prophet, mentor, and more. Chiron came to be very highly revered. But, this was only after Chiron was conceived through rape, was born a bastard child, and was abandoned by his mother, who was literally disgusted by him.

So, while Chiron transits can offer life lessons and growth, I would not call Chiron a benefic.

When Chiron contacts gentle, pleasure-loving Venus, you’re in for a sort of shocker. Chiron was a martial artist, not a “painting” artist.

The key is to remember that this is only a temporary transit and it will pass! How does that famous quote go? “There is a time for everything…” Chiron transits are a time for unbearable pain.

As you read the interpretations below, consider the following 3 points.

  1. Check to see if you have a natal aspect between Venus and Chiron. If you don’t have a natal Venus-Chiron aspect, you may not notice Chiron transits to Venus so much.
  2. If your natal Venus has any stressful aspects (square, opposition, conjunction) to any planets, you’ll feel the influence of this Chiron transit more strongly.
  3. Consider also the dignity of your natal Venus: if you have Venus in detriment or Fall (in Scorpio, Aries, or Virgo), any transit to your Venus will be difficult. Sorry. On the other hand, if your natal Venus is exalted (in Pisces), you may not be bothered at all by Chiron transits.


Consider the 3 points above as you read the interpretations that follow.

Transiting Chiron Conjunct Natal Venus

When anguished Chiron makes a transit conjunction to your Venus, you’ll quite possibly endure a traumatic event in your social life. You may have a change of job, relationship, or residence. A particular event may leave you feeling abandoned.

You may also feel unbearable pain in the houses which Venus rules in your birth chart, not simply the house which Venus is in. So look at the houses in your birth chart with Taurus and Libra on the cusps.

(For example, if Venus rules your 1st house, you may experience a physical injury as well as a lowered sense of self-esteem. If Venus rules your 2nd house, your income and self-worth will be affected. If Venus rules your 3rd house, you may experience betrayal by a family member, or close friend. Something involving contracts, perhaps, and requiring you to make a short trip. If Venus rules your 4th house, your home will be affected. If Venus rules your 5th or 7th house, you may experience a break-up or unrequited love. If Venus rules your 6th house, your health or daily schedule will be affected, as well as, possibly, your job. If Venus rules your 8th house, your circumstances may involve an inheritance, a will, or joint finances perhaps, and the pain will be felt on a deep psychological level. If Venus rules your 9th house, circumstances may involve long-distance communications, religion, and the law. If Venus rules your 10th house, your public reputation will be affected. If Venus rules your 11th house, sadly, your hopes and wishes will be affected, as well as your social groups. If Venus rules your 12th house, your circumstances may involve a hospital or prison, or else you will be confined in some way, even if only in your mind.)

The kinds of friends and lovers you attract into your life will change. If you’re a woman, you may reinvent your appearance, such as change your hairstyle and buy new clothes. If you’re attracted to women, the “type of woman” you prefer will change.

Your idea of beauty, and even your definition of love, will change. Your preferences in all sorts of things will change.

If you start a love relationship during this transit, it will end up causing you great pain. Even friendships started during this time can ultimately cause you pain.

You may discover a new athletic skill or talent for the first time, but you will not really be able to enjoy it during this transit. Hold on to it, you can enjoy it after this transit passes.

It’s all too easy to give up on things during this time because you may feel so hurt. You will feel an insufferable pain, like the one which caused Chiron to beg for death in his legend. You may find yourself begging for a way out. But don’t give up. Endure as long as you can. Chiron’s transit is temporary.

Transiting Chiron Square Natal Venus

When transiting Chiron makes a square to your Venus, the interpretation for the conjunction (above) also applies, however, on a slightly less intense level. With the transiting square, much of the pain is due to inner conflicts regarding your relationships. If you’re involved in a relationship, you may be unhappy in it, or the relationship may feel unbalanced. You may desire more out of the relationship than you are getting.

More often than not, transiting Chiron square your Venus challenges you to endure as much pain as you can. You will experience a pain, abandonment, or death of some sort. This can be a metaphorical death, such as the death of a relationship, death of a job, or leaving your old home behind to move to a new residence. The houses in your birth chart with Taurus and Libra on the cusp will be the setting for this pain.

Transiting Chiron in Opposition to Natal Venus

When transiting Chiron is opposite your natal Venus, the interpretations for the square and conjunct (above) apply here. In addition, with the square, you may feel that you contribute more than you receive in relationships. You feel like people are against you, like they’re purposely trying to hurt you.

You may greatly dislike new people that you meet during this time.

Transiting Chiron Trine Natal Venus

Transiting Chiron making a trine to your natal Venus doesn’t necessarily mean anything positive. Rather, it means that energy flows easily between Chiron and your Venus.

We barely notice soft transits, such as trines and sextiles, because they occur almost as an undercurrent, without making any friction. It’s as if they tiptoe.

With the trine, Chiron is operating in the same element that your natal Venus sign is in. This provides a common ground for them.

So, you will not necessarily hate the circumstances brought about by this transit. You may not even notice any thing different through this transit. During this transit, Chiron may express itself in a way that doesn’t upset your natal Venus, too much.

If you do notice a painful circumstance brought on by this aspect, it will most likely bring you some tears and sadness, but you’ll also learn some new way to deal with it. You’ll simply endure things during this time, or else you’ll get over them easily. Even if you experience pain, you’ll be able to help others during this time.

A word of caution: be wary of starting new love relationships while Chiron is making a transit to your Venus (even a trine). Your new lover and you may love each other dearly, but this relationship may end up hurting you more than a little bit.

    wow what a negative article lol

  2. My boyfriend just broke up with me: chiron is conjuncting his venus and squaring my venus, his in pisces mines in gemini. It hurts so much, love can actually be a mental disease, it’s worse when you realize the other one couldn’t care less. He just looks so happy and content with his new life. I guess what you said about venus being exalted in pisces and that chiron transits wouldn’t even bother is pretty much true. Your article is spot on. Thank you.

    This was an awesome explanation of Chiron. And, his transit to your natal Venus. Brilliant!

  4. Just saw me and my girlfriend both have chiron venus convictions in the 10th house…..

  5. My Virgo Venus in 7th house is currently conjuncting my Chiron in Libra 8th house. Seriously… I’m recovering myself from an unrequited love relationship… I’m not very well at this time, I’m in a terrible mood, I wish I could be loved, but … what can I do? Let this transit just pass….

  6. How important are transits to your progressed Venus?

  7. Very good explanation, especially the focus on the energy of Chiron.

    I have Venus in Pisces (11th house) and although exalted and being the strongest planet in my chart, Venus was severely wounded after the conjunction with Chiron. I find the explanation in the other events in my chart which were… oh my… Just in the last 2 years I’ve been through Uranus opposition Saturn, Pluto square Saturn, Pluto conjunct the South Node, Chiron square Neptune, Chiron conjunct Venus, Chiron sextile Chiron… Nothing left from the person I used to be because of a very wounding Venus(me)-Pluto relationship which lead to all of the effects of the other transits. So… Venus in Pisces is not immuned to Chiron transits (but may be my natal sextile Venus-Chiron was the reason for that).

  8. Honestly these are difficult but ime not as difficult as Saturn. But thank you so much for the write up it is so hard to find good info on Venus Chiron natal or transit. I looked up the times in my life when Chiron hard aspected Venus and because Venus makes so many aspects in my natal it was a little difficult to pinpoint, but I can say in all of them there was a definite “ouch!” factor involved. The person I’m interested in has natal Venus opp Chiron so this helped in a small way to understand his aspect better too. Again thank you.

  9. Chiron is currently 2 degrees from my Venus in Aries. This transit may be temporary but is going to be one helluva long one! The transit will not be clear until 2021!! I’m hoping that the pain is not as intense the whole time–there are at least 2 retrogrades between 2 – 10 degrees. In this case, I left the other person because it became clear to me that I was the one madly in love while he was “confused”. F* that….I wasted a whole year waiting for him and giving him everything in my heady madness…..meanwhile he was in and out and off and on. I got sick of the whole game when he couldn’t find time to spend with me for my birthday. *DEUCES* It hurts to not be loved as much as you love the other. This transiting Chiron also opposes my Pluto as my venus opposes my natal pluto. So I’m just trying not to focus on him, but myself as I was too readily to love someone who didn’t have the same feelings. I believed in his fantasies; didn’t want to see the truth, which tells me I’ve got some childhood wounds to take care of. I try my best to keep the other out of my mind and just see that I am the person that needs attention right now.

    What a irresponsible interpretation. Every transit has a purpose, higher learning. In this case, learning how to embrace your wound and not have it say something about your value. The action is not “duck” as well as not to not start any relationship because it will hurt you. The action is awareness that your value doesn’t depend on external validation, cleaning of the wound and rebirth of yourself as someone who doesn’t let others, or his life story dictate his or hers self love. Not accepting others criticism as truths, but as a mirror to your wound, eventually developing self love.

      I totally agree…Here I am several weeks later (after my posted comment) and I’m seeing what you wrote as my new truth. It clicked for me recently. I feel brand new, although I can sense remnants of the old me still there. Let’s me know more cleaning up ahead. So when others show up and rub that wound, I think I can now be an observer to “the game” and be able to take a whole new approach! And that approach is one of Centeredness and Detachment. And a knowing I am valuable. I must say the Universe has certainly given me a helping hand in these matters–bringing new opportunities that light me up and new supportive friendships into play to help me see my value and to move forward towards greater exploration of talent, love, creativity in my life, and abundance (my natal venus is sextile my natal Saturn in 11th house). Thank you for the confirmation. I’m still healing, so for any spectators who want to merge right now, the garden is off limits until I can get more grounded in my self-love. It is a bitter sweet experience as I must say good-bye to the old me, old lovers and friends who no longer serve me.

      Thank you for this comment June Doe, it is extremely valuable for me. This is something that had to be in the article! Learning to stand behind yourself never mind what is the lesson here! Thank you so much, it immediately gave me a key and released my fears after reading this article! I hope more people read your comment. By the way this square started for me on May 4th 2020, on May 7th I broke up with a man who did not show me that I am important enough for him to commit. I did not know then that this aspect have started, I only saw it today. Well, we have 2 years ahead Self love practicing!

    • Wow! A year later and im still working on this! Lol! Had a friend who insisted on being lovers. Chiron was still conj venus (square jupiter). After much confusion–due to neptune, venus, NN/SN, amd moon positive aspects–i decided to gove it a try. A very sweet connection–BUT his saturn in 5th house is retrograde, a reflection of my own sun square saturn. His sense of inadequacy, sluggishness, neediness and lack of inspiration repulsed me. I finally realized that although i love our mental/emotional/spiritual connection, the aspects i didnt like were a reflection of me. O decided to try to love him amyway. Well his satirm sqiares my venus. No luck there; i am no longer willing to play martyr to helpless men who dont hv the inspiration to fill their lives with a love for life. I am sympathetic to his karma, but the realization, after many life lessons on this, is i am not responsible for it. I am responsible for my own karma, love and care of myself, and filling my life with joy and satisfaction. It is good to see what i wrote over a year ago and see how i have progressed and am still growing. Thank you
