Monitoring the transit, or moving, planets, asteroids, and other bodies as the tour the Zodiac can show you the energies you're dealing with at the current moment, and whatever they're doing to your natal chart can show energy that is personal for you. As they tour through your natal houses, they bring their own distinct energy to whatever that house rules.

Chiron in astrology
Technically, Chiron is classified as a comet (that designation has changed though, so who knows!), but in astrology, we usually call it an asteroid. Chiron is the "Wounded Healer", and connects with our greatest wounds in life, but also how we can heal best.
Your natal Chiron shows where you should focus your healing most, how, and also offers a place of quiet power and internal growth. It's not the most comfortable, but ultimately necessary.
In transit, Chiron brings this energy to whatever it's touching in your natal chart. The natal house transit Chiron occupies gets this healing focus, but it may come with some old wounds being picked open first.
If you have any of the houses cusps at a critical or anaretic degree, or have natal Saturn, Uranus, or Pluto in them, or any intercepted planets in them, the block/challenges that they represent can get more focus while Chiron is touring that house. You can focus on the wounds that have come as a result of that position and the healing that needs to be done to overcome and use it positively.
Transit Chiron in the Natal Houses
While in the 1st house, transit Chiron offers a great deal of opportunity for healing, and this can be self-healing as you can be more proactive in your approach. You can take charge of your healing, and want to grow as a person. At the same time, you can also feel your wounds more deeply, more obviously, and you can be more sensitive emotionally and spiritually, which can make you more vulnerable to being wounded if you’re not guarding yourself well (more healthy boundaries!), or not being actively involved in healing yourself of existing wounds. This is a transit where you really want to embrace your inner healer for your own benefit.
Transit Chiron in the 2nd house can help you to focus your healing on issues with your values, with money, or with being grounded. Grounding yourself more can help you heal and grow during this transit. This transit can also target your confidence, your security and self-esteem, and any issues associated with them. If you’re insecure and lack confidence, it can actually get worse as you care more about what other people think of you. But it also gives you more opportunity to heal that and strengthen yourself so you don’t care as much eventually.
While in the 3rd house, transit Chiron can help you with healing your mind. If you have depressive or anxious tendencies, that’s something you can work on, and strengthen your mind. If you lack confidence in your mental and communication abilities, that can also be addressed. You do have to be careful with words during this transit, as you can be more easily hurt by the things people say. If you’re constantly feeling sensitive to what people say, that can be an indicator you have something to work on healing from (perhaps something someone said to you in the past).
Transit Chiron in the 4th house focuses on emotional healing and healing yourself at your core. Issues that have impacted the foundation of yourself and your life can be addressed, and you can work on deep emotional traumas. This would be a great time for focusing on family traumas. There is room for a lot of emotional healing and growth, but you can also be a lot more sensitive emotionally, especially early on. Giving yourself lots of comfort and expanding your support system can be of great help for managing that.
While in the 5th house, transit Chiron can make excellent use of creativity to heal and grow. Using creative outlets to channel issues, emotions, and the things you have a hard time expressing can give you a way of letting it out (it can be a brilliantly inspired time for artists if you’re willing to let yourself be super exposed). Exposing your wounds is something that you may have to do regardless, giving them full attention so you can finally heal. Getting external attention may lead to new wounds though, and you can feel more sensitive to getting attention.
Transit Chiron in the 6th house can be a great period for focusing on literal, physical wounds as the 6th house rules your health. If you have any long-standing health issues, anything chronic or that keeps coming back again and again, or that is directly a result of stress, this transit would be an excellent time to work on the root cause. Any issues connected to work and your daily life can also be tackled, though you can be more sensitive to criticism (a lot more!), but it may stem from your own negative internal monologue more than anything anyone else says.
While in the 7th house, transit Chiron focuses on your relationships and connections with others, and any and all of the issues you have associated with that. If you have difficulty with forming healthy relationships, you can work on that during this transit. This transit also focuses on old wounds and trauma as a result of others, brought on by others in your life, and you can be more easily wounded by the people in your life now if you haven’t worked on issues yet. You may also spend time helping others to heal and grow during this transit, perhaps sometimes more than yourself. This isn’t necessarily bad, but you want to make sure you’re not ignoring yourself. Balance can be extremely helpful for you.
Transit Chiron in the 8th house can focus on your deepest wounds, the ones you don’t want to deal with but have to. Chiron wants you to heal them, and it can be a very emotional experience, sometimes traumatizing all over again, but provides an opportunity to truly and totally heal. You may undergo a transformation during this time, and you can feel better as you take more power and control.
While in the 9th house, transit Chiron wants to be a bit more happy and optimistic, and sometimes, simply thinking better can help you be better. Being pessimistic can lead to more wounds, so look at the bright side. Focus on issues of expansion or being open to experiencing life, and wounds related to your beliefs. As you become more open to the world and more secure in your beliefs, you can heal and grow faster.
Transit Chiron in the 10th house can focus on ways you’ve felt confined, restricted and limited in your life, and how responsibilities have impacted you. If you’ve been reckless and done bad things, Chiron can bring that out and cause some wounds for you as a result; if you’ve taken on too many responsibilities and held yourself back too much, that can lead to problems too! So you want to find some middle ground. You do need to go about healing and growing the right way and for the right reasons, and you may be more interested in traditional ideas of healing. By healing, you can clear your path in life to achieve goals and experience success.
While in the 11th house, transit Chiron takes a more unconventional approach to healing and growth, and you can explore alternative methods of healing. You may suddenly have the desire to focus on certain wounds and find new ways of addressing them that you haven’t tried before, or gain new insights that allows you to move on. You may also want to focus on issues related to your identity, your individuality, especially if you haven’t felt you could embrace who you are. You may also help friends to heal, or work on healing in groups in some way.
Transit Chiron in the 12th house is a quieter approach to healing, and you may work on healing yourself alone, not wanting to broadcast what you’re dealing with. You can work on subconscious issues, issues from the past, and karmic wounds/baggage. Your intuition can be exceptional during this transit, and you can forge a stronger connection to your inner mystic. This can actually help you with healing and growth.
