With Chiron in Libra, it may bring Chironic wounding, a sense of unfairness and disappointment in relationships. Barbara Hand Clow says that those with this placement need plenty of feedback from others in order to get in touch with themselves. The author believes that one of the major lessons they learn is to tell what is fair and just. The concepts of balance and harmony are also particularly challenging. Yet they may become highly skilled in diplomacy, legal work, or counseling. However, the wound (Chiron) that the world is unjust still remains, and the reality of human nature never matches up to their ideals. Maybe it is in the arena of a relationship itself that does not fit the ideal and there could be feelings of being isolated and shut off. On the transformative side, this pain could lead them into work where they help others heal their wounds and achieve transformation through understanding the same pain of social rejection, injustice and unethical actions, because, on some level, they have been there too.
The family background may reflect wounds in the area of relating. The bridging of opposites and achieving a balanced, clear viewpoint may lead to disillusionment. The wound appears through trying to make everything perfect, and a sense of unfairness is pronounced with this placement. Chiron in Libra may rage when they see people being selfish and treating others unequally. Moreover, they may also feel some kind of rejection related to relationships and social interactions. Usually, they need to understand what relationships can teach and to have a compassionate response to ordinary human failings.
Chiron in Libra might feel inadequate in the social sphere and perhaps early childhood placed too much emphasis on maintaining the appearance of harmony. In adulthood, they wish to cure the world of its darkness and live within a society that is ethical, and one that shares responsibility. Acceptance of flawed human beings and a flawed society would go a long way to healing the wound. Idealistic concepts are lovely, but they do not always work in the reality of a situation. Imperfection creates dissatisfaction and it is painful to see society trapped in greed and self-centeredness and trying to heal this situation only feels hopeless and fills them with bitterness. All they want is civilized interchange, but interactions might not fit the “ideal” and this can create deeply wounding situations.
