comet like tail

Chiron in the Houses

Chiron was discovered in 1977 and originally classified as an asteroid with a weird travel pattern. Further study discovered a comet-like tail attached to Chiron, classifying him as a comet. Chiron lies in between Saturn and Uranus, making him a literal and metaphorical transition from the inner planets (our personal planets), to the outer planets (our universal planets). Chiron in the chart is an indicator of our deepest wound, maybe a certain part of your life where problems keep arising, or that you feel you have a lack of. Chiron reveals to us our weakness with the hope we transcend it. If we transform ourselves and heal from our wounds, we receive a certain talent, teaching ability, or potential in that particular area. The house placement of Chiron shows us in what aspect of our life we are wounded.

First House: Your deepest wound is found in your sense of self and identity.

Second House: Your deepest wound is found in your sense of self-worth.

Third House: Your deepest wound is found in communication with others, the world, and yourself.

Fourth House: Your deepest wound is found in your familial life.

Fifth House: Your deepest wound is found in creative expression.

 Sixth House: Your deepest wound is found in your health and in daily routine activities.

Seventh House: Your deepest wound is found in your close, intimate relationships.

Eighth House: Your deepest wound is found in your relationship with death, sex, and source of survival.

Ninth House: Your deepest wound is found in your growth as a person.

Tenth House: Your deepest wound is found in your career and with your reputation.

Eleventh House: Your deepest wound is found in your friends, social groups, and hopes for the future.

Twelfth House: Your deepest wound is found in your subconscious; inside yourself.

The god of chaos shall look at the much slighter being curiously, though it is evident in aura and posture that he means no harm. Instead, he brings a rather thick tome of knowledge long since lost as an offering to the Lord of Dreams. "Greetings. I do not believe we have met yet."

“Nor I you” The little Light Lord hummed, his hovering seeming to grow as he drew up to the other’s eye level yet slowly beginning to orbit him with that robe tail slowly rippling behind him like a comets’ tail.

“But I see you know enough of me to bring me an offering. To what answers or dream do you seek?”

Our past trails behind us like a comet’s tail, the future stretched out before us like the universe. Things happen. People get lost and love breaks.

That’s no comet; that’s Pluto! Comet-like tail and X-rays discovered at Solar System’s edge

“This is exactly what you’d expect if Pluto were acting like a comet! Objects far beyond Neptune are so cold that they’re covered in ices; New Horizons discovered a world rich in nitrogen, methane and water ice. But Pluto has a highly elliptical orbit, and its perihelion, or closest approach to the Sun, takes it even inside the orbit of Neptune, which it achieved only a few decades ago: in 1989. The closer Pluto is to the Sun, the more the ices on its surface vaporize, forming a hazy atmosphere. That atmosphere can then be gradually stripped away by the high-energy particles of the solar wind, similar to the process that strips Mars’ atmosphere away, only on a much slower, more distant scale.”

What, in our Solar System, has a long tail from boiled-off frozen ices? What simultaneously leaves an X-ray signature when the solar wind collides with those boiled-off atoms, kicking electrons out and causing X-ray emissions? If you guessed a comet, you’d be “traditionally” correct, beginning with Comet Hyukutake in 1996. But way out beyond any comets, Pluto does the exact same thing. Thanks to a combination of the New Horizons flyby and observations with the Chandra X-ray observatory, we’ve been able to measure, verify and learn some incredibly interesting physics about the largest object discovered to date out beyond Neptune. Perhaps most interestingly, it’s also the first time we’ve detected X-rays from beyond SATURN in our Solar System, and ushers in a new era in astronomy: Kuiper belt X-ray observing!
