 Holistic Astrology: Chiron - StarIQ.com
Though the majority of astrologers don't use Chiron in their charts, its themes have had an undeniable effect on astrology, providing us with the most spiritually-oriented planetary influence since Neptune, and guiding astrology to the level of a holistic healing art.
Chiron was a hundred times too large to be a conventional comet, but not as big as Pluto, so it wasn't really a planet in the previous sense.
But now we have Chiron, and by using its natal placement and transits, we work on a level where astrology is raised to the level of a holistic art and a spiritual science.
