In astrology, Chiron is the wounded healer. It governs our great wounds, healing ability, and is sensitive, empathetic, spiritual, and intuitive, and when impacting your professional life, that energy can be brought into the work you do.
How Natal Chiron Impacts Your Professional Life
For some, Chiron can have a strong influence on your professional life via your natal chart. This can be the case if you have:
- Chiron in the 2nd house (ruling money), 6th house (ruling work), or 10th house (ruling career)
- Chiron conjunct (aligned with) the 2nd, 6th, or 10th house ruler, Ceres (planetary ruler of money), or Saturn (planetary ruler of career)
- Chiron conjunct the 4th house cusp/Imum Coeli (the 4th house cusp/Imum Coeli is on an axis with the 10th house cusp/Midheaven so Chiron would be directly opposing)
When natal Chiron has a strong influence on your professional life in the natal chart, this brings spiritual and healing energy for you professionally. When it's with the 10th house, this rules your overall career, and you may focus on a career that is ruled by Chiron, so something spiritual, using your intuition, in healing or the medical field, where you're helping others in some way, or that utilizes your creativity.
Having goals may be something that helps focus you and therefore helps with your healing. You can be very disciplined and practical with your approach to healing, and may almost view it as another job for you in your life.
At the same time, authority figures, including bosses, may challenge you quite a bit, and push your boundaries and lead to wounds. You may work better without a boss, directly with people or on your own.
When it's the 6th house, this rules your work environment and the jobs you have, so you need a work environment that is calm, stable, secure, and emotionally supportive. You can feel secure emotionally when you have a stable work environment, and you may want to avoid chaotic work environments as this can cause many wounds for you, not only emotionally, but also physically. You can stress out quite easily, so this needs to be addressed.
When it's the 2nd house, this rules your money, so you can make money in a way ruled by Chiron (spirituality, medical, healing, etc.). Money may have been a source of wounds for you when young, and you didn't have enough. You may be someone who gives a lot of your money away, which can be good, but you need to assess the reasons why, and make sure you're keeping enough so you're not in need too. Healing money wounds, baggage, and karma may be necessary for you.
How Transit Chiron Impacts Your Professional Life
Transit (moving) Chiron can also bring strong Chiron energy to your professional life, but this is temporary (whereas with natal Chiron, it's your entire life). With transit Chiron, it's only going to be for the period of time the transit is in effect.
Transit Chiron can influence your professional life when it's:
- in your natal 2nd, 6th, or 10th houses
- aspecting your natal 2nd, 6th, or 10th house rulers, your Midheaven, your natal Ceres, or your natal Saturn
Transit Chiron touring your natal 2nd house can bring opportunities for healing money wounds, breaking karmic patterns, and working to be more comfortable with money. You may be extra generous, but need to learn balance. If you can do that, you can use your money and resources to help yourself heal and grow.
Transit Chiron in your natal 6th house can impact your work life, and it can be important for you to have a stable, secure work environment. Without that, you may feel extra sensitive and easily wounded, from your work itself, by co-workers, clients, bosses, or employees, and this can make it difficult for you to work as it takes a toll on you emotionally, mentally, and physically.
Having good boundaries with your work environment is important, and you can do better that way. You may focus on jobs that allow you to help others somehow, or that you can be creative with.
Transit Chiron in your natal 10th house can impact your career and goals, and healing can become an important goal for you. The more you heal, the higher you can climb professionally, and the more opportunities you have for success. When you achieve, you can feel even more secure and emotionally at ease, so they feed each other. You may need to be your own boss, or at least have a boss that is supportive and understanding, otherwise there can be issues.
When it comes to transit Chiron aspects, these last for several months. Beneficial aspects (sextiles and trines) can help you heal any issues, feel more secure, and have better boundaries, financially with the 2nd house, with your work with the 6th house, and with career goals with the 10th house.
Challenging aspects (conjunctions, squares, and oppositions) can bring out wounds related to your professional life, and you likely need to work on healing them. These may be wounds from your younger years, early in your work life, or from past lives. You can feel unsettled with your work, and may struggle with boundaries. You need to heal so you can avoid the drama and find inspiration.

Will Chiron in Aries Impact My Professional Life?
Chiron is about halfway through Aries by now, so it's already affected some with this transit when it comes to your professional life, though there are still many to come. This can include you if you have:
- natal 2nd house, 6th house, or 10th house/Midheaven in Aries (Chiron will transit)
- natal 2nd, 6th, or 10th house ruler or natal Ceres or Saturn in Aries (Chiron will conjunct)
- natal 2nd, 6th, or 10th house cusp/Midheaven, natal 2nd, 6th, or 10th house ruler or natal Ceres or Saturn in Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn (Chiron will square or oppose)
These are the challenging positions for Chiron in Aries, and these can bring out wounds and issues and baggage related to your professional life. You need to get to the core of the problems, erect healthy boundaries, and strengthen yourself internally. You may need to say no to more projects and people, and prioritize yourself.
If any of these positions are instead in Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, or Aquarius, Chiron in Aries will make beneficial aspects, and this can help with being secure in your professional life, having healthy boundaries with your work, and being inspired by what you're doing.
