This much awaited republication of the classic text on Chiron by Zane Stein includes the material from the author's historic lecture to the Guild in 1979 as well as his pamphlet `Interpreting Chiron'. One of the great gifts which this world renowned astrologer and author offers us, is his vast research on the workings of Chiron in our daily lives. From his speedy production of an ephemeris upon the discovery of this celestial body in 1977, to the endless surveys on the impact of Chiron on birth charts by transit, progression and solar arc direction as well as natally, Zane built up an unprecedented body of knowledge. Generously sharing this with us throughout his book, Zane also continues to do so online through his facebook and webpages.
Divided into two parts, the first part of this book offers us an interpretation of Chiron by House, Aspect and Sign including a useful section on keywords and rulerships. Part two focuses on the Essence and Application including the Chiron Return, the issue of what healing means, and the application of Chiron in our life, as well as an ephemeris of Chiron at the back. However, describing the content in this brief summary does not do justice to the astrological, philosophical and spiritual depths the author takes us to in this incredibly comprehensive book. No stone is left unturned as we voyage through the authors rich Chironian offerings including the concept of time. The author describes `Chiros' as time outside the time of Saturn and Uranus ruling `the concept of NOW' and reminding us that we live in the present rather than getting caught up in the past or future. Deeply relevant to the current collective transformation we are undergoing, I leave you with a quote from this wonderful book `can the freeing of Prometheus by Chiron represent the releasing of humanity's true destiny, after we perceive the true reality via Chiron and thus perceive how we are all one?'
I highly recommend this deeply insightful book for all astrologers at any level of learning and experience as well as non-astrologers who are interested in self-development. This is a classic astrology book which reminds us of the wealth of information this celestial body can offer us particularly at this time of individual and collective transformation.
