On MARS CHIRON
and How to Overcome Overwhelming Odds

The mythic story of Chiron, including his legendary geographic region, implies the shape-shifter shaman of indigenous people. Indigenous warriors are quite different from conventional warriors. Mars – Chiron aspects remind us of the potential wisdom of such an approach. Imagine primal man bringing down animals much larger than one’s self. Similarly, in tale after tale of Chiron-trained heroes, the hero warrior faces overwhelming potentially bullying opposition, yet triumphs. He does so, obviously, by not meeting force with force, but by avoiding direct (suicidal) contact. Flash-forward to the different-kind-of war that was the American’s way against the British army --- no doubt learned from indigenous Native American warriors. Flash-again-forward to post WW II occupied Japan when weapons are forbidden and the emergence of martial arts self-defense. Flash-further-forward yet again to many modern stories of underdog heroes who triumph in the end (e.g., The Karate Kid). There are warrior ways of behavior beyond either being bully or bullied.
Astrologically, my research into hundreds of relevant charts repeatedly showed that issues of being bullied or bullying (often one then the other), or transcending those extremes, shows up when Mars and Chiron aspect one another.

In the chart for the Mars-ruled Aries New Moon of March 22, 2012, Mars retrograde in Virgo directly opposes Chiron in Pisces, as booth square the Lunar Nodes in Gemini -Sagittarius, and Juno in Sagittarius. Chiron is in Pisces on the 7th Sabian symbol degree. Note that Chiron was on this exact degree in the early morning of January 8, 1815 for the Battle of New Orleans, and was square Mars (and Uranus) in Pisces. Americans were outnumbered by more than 2 to one. A motley American crew of freed slaves, pirates, bon-vivant militia, backwoods hunters, etc. turned back the British Empire’s finest. The battle ended with approximately 2,000 British dead, yet only 8 Americans killed and only 13 Americans wounded.
