A guide to using astrology to identify your core wounds and heal them using psychological techniques, affirmations, and self-compassion
• Explains how the placement of Chiron in your birth chart identifies the core wounds and unconscious patterns that block empathy and self-forgiveness
• Offers a descriptive chapter for each of the 12 zodiac sign placements for Chiron, revealing how Chiron affects you psychologically, emotionally, sexually, spiritually, socially, financially, and intellectually
• Provides specific steps for each sign to shift self-destructive patterns as well as powerful affirmations infused with Reiki healing energy
We all have experienced disappointment, sadness, rejection, or the loss of something meaningful in our lives. When you are wounded, innate animalistic instincts for self-protection kick in as a means for survival. These behavior patterns are a natural and necessary coping strategy, at first. But many dwell far too long in these patterns and separate themselves from their source of inner wisdom and intuition.
Using astrology as a diagnostic tool, Lisa Tahir reveals how to use the astrological placement of the minor planet Chiron in your birth chart to identify the core wounds and unconscious patterns that block your capacity to have self-empathy and to forgive. Coining the phrase “Chiron Effect” to describe the magnetic pull that individuals have around specific areas of vulnerability, she explains how, like a raw nerve, the placement of Chiron describes what parts of our lives we might edit or hide for fear of being rejected as well as the areas of sensitivity where we are triggered. Offering a chart and online links to allow you to determine Chiron’s placement in your chart, the author explains how Chiron affects you psychologically, emotionally, sexually, spiritually, socially, financially, and intellectually depending on the sign and house it falls within. She outlines how to begin healing your core wounds through empathy and self-forgiveness, providing several steps for each sign placement to shift self-destructive patterns and learn to protect yourself as well as powerful affirmations infused with Reiki healing energy to help you anchor a new belief system.
As Lisa Tahir reveals, once identified, your personal Chiron placement can become the source of your greatest healing and empowerment. By recognizing your core wounding and learning to offer yourself empathy and forgiveness, you can finally break free from suffering, end self-sabotage, and allow your life to unfold in a new way.

“There are a number of things I like about this book. We will start with the clear Table of Contents, then the diagrams at the beginning of each Chiron-in-a-sign chapter summarizing the core wounds of that placement, ending these chapters with appropriate affirmations. Also of note are the always helpful index, bibliography and resources appendices.”
— Lisa Mc Sherry, Facing North
"Chiron in astrology means "wounded healer" Author Tahir uses Chiron in "The Chiron Effect Healing Our Wounds through Astrology, Empathy and Self- Forgiveness" to help people with a number of negative aspects of their lives. She also utilizes principals of psychology and Eric Fromm as well as other modern-day techniques to achieve a perfect balanced life. So often books of this type have only concentrated on the Astrological aspect that appeal to a much slimer audience. By combing known aspects of treatments as well as telling personal stories "The Chiron Effect" is a valuable resource that appeals to a much larger group of people in need of help in this Covid time."
— Gary Roen, Midwest Book Review
