The fascination that solar eclipses cause on humans is eternal.
In ancient Greece eclipses were considered unfortunate and could even cause the interruption of a battle. This happened in 585 BC when Thales of Miletus was the first to predict a solar eclipse, as recorded by Herodotus. The eclipse was the reason for the cessation of hostilities between the armies of Medeans and Lideans.
Today we do not accept the unfortunate nature of eclipses and we tend to accept them as Astronomical events beyond our powers.
In the astrological level eclipses occur on the nodes of the Moon and involve large inflow or outflow of energy to or from the subconscious. It is obvious that we, as human beings, can do nothing to control these flows that disrupt our lives over time, and not instantaneous.

(Article by Anna Dimou, Psychologist)
By looking at the archetypes of a myth, one may be able to interpret aspects of the world that surrounds us. Mythology is a useful tool we can employ to identify features and aspects of the human soul.
In Greek mythology, Chiron was the wisest of the Centaurs (creations that were half Men and half horses) and could be considered as the 'wounded healer'. His pupil, Achilles, during a battle...
, accidentally hit him with an arrow that was soaked in the blood of the Hydra. Chiron being immortal lived on wounded by with pain. In an effort to find his own cure, he learned to help and ease the suffering of others. This discovery, ie the teaching of others how to treat themselves, was a mean to relieve his eternal pain.
Everyone of us at some point of our lives will inevitably pass by tests. We may experience physical pain, illness, mental confusion, trauma or even perhaps confronted with existential angst. All these difficulties are likely to teach us to sympathize in sorrow and pain of our fellow men.
Carl Jung believed that the disease of the soul could be the best form of training for a therapist. The pains and difficulties one carries and finally overcomes, are the source of a greater wisdom and healing power.
The 'Wounded Healer' understands how the patient feels because he has gone through the same pain. Furthermore, the healer through his experience is capable to feel, by placing himself in place of the other and not only just to be compassionate. The patient from the other side, perceives this action even on a subconscious level. Because of this experience the substance of the relationship is transformed. From 'expert', the therapist becomes the companion* with his patient, thus opening a spiritual path that connects them.
Finally, the patient suffering and cared by the therapist simultaneously contributes to the healing of the healer. The interaction can play a key role in the treatment of both.
In conclusion, the myth of Chiron teaches us that we are able to overcome the pain by converting it to power and knowledge. Through such an experience everyone can become a 'Wounded Healer'.
"Man needs difficulties. They are vital for his health." Carl Jung (1875-1961, Swiss psychologist)
* A term used to Irvin Yalom's patients.

Let us make our position clear, the 13 Zodiac Signs describe some of our general characteristics, it is impossible to fit in a few lines of text our psychology, talents, selfishness and our dreams. Each single person is different and the only way to make a personalized astrological portrait is the Natal Horoscope containing the positions and aspects of the Sun, the main planets and the New Ascendant, the Moon. But again in your Natal Horoscope you may only find some of your features and many more potentialities that can be realized, or not. Man, as the only being who is aware of its existence and the ability to philosophize, is trying in vain to convience others in describing himself. The position of modern Astrology is therefore very difficult as a discipline for describing a greedy, concerning its self-awareness, being. This task is mentaly impossible. Only approximately and gnostically searching can we act, and this is what we will do starting with the description of the 13 Zodiac Signs. More information on how one can deal with the subject, can be found in my book "Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac".
