I would think it would surface the deep wounds associated with its placement but allow for personal expansion in your ability to heal?
I guess this would also depend on the other aspects you have going on at the same time....
Here's what I've found on it, but would like to get confirmation via IQ:
According to the Magi, 15 Super Aspects are "Enhancements Aspects"
Conjunctions, Trines, Parallels, and Contra-Parallels. A day with 5 or more is very rare.
1. Jupiter-Pluto - Super Success Aspect
4. Uranus-Pluto - has a 1 degree orb for Declinations
6. Jupiter-Venus - Aspect of Champions
7. Jupiter-Uranus - Super Fame Aspect & Historic Aspect
15. Chiron-Pluto (very rare)
"Jupiter’s alignment with Chiron will have a similar effect of amplification, but this combination means we are likely to be increasingly aware of both the “gift of connection” and the “gift of aloneness” that astrologer Martin Lass describes in his interpretation of Chiron in Aquarius. This conjunction holds the potential for an enhanced understanding of the wounds that keep us separate from each other – and as we embrace that understanding, we may also take major steps in healing our separation from Spirit.
Here in Lass’ words are some thoughts about the possibilities of a Jupiter-Chiron conjunction:
“The healing path [of Chiron-Jupiter] reawakens us to the innocence and childlike wisdom of the Inner Child. It takes us back to the joie de vivre that we tend to lose as we grow up. It reminds us that life is an adventure, full of magic, mystery, and magnificence… Chiron-Jupiter aspects are extremely powerful in their potential to awaken us to our wounds and to reveal our wounds’ inner wisdom. In this way, Jupiter gives us our first glimpse of the guiding hand in our lives.
“This aspect represents the potential marriage of healing and wisdom acquired by delving into our wounds and issues and seeing the hidden plan that lies behind them… With this aspect, the adventure of our lives is the journey of healing and evolution of consciousness, whichever form that adventure may take. That journey will tend to be larger than life and rich in content, with our gifts on display to the world as an inspiration and testament to the possibility of healing and evolution of consciousness.”
The duality of any Chiron experience is clear in this interpretation, where we simultaneously “awaken to our wounds and reveal our wounds’ inner wisdom.” To have this energy amplified through Jupiter’s influence means that both sides of the equation – the wound and the healing – are likely to be very apparent. Keeping in mind that the purpose of all this is “the journey of healing and evolution of consciousness” will be a helpful means of staying on track.
Astrologer Rob Hand shares another perspective of how Jupiter-Chiron energies combine:
“This influence will enable you to reach a deeper understanding of illness and health, as well as the process of division and becoming whole again. If your work involves helping others, you will have new opportunities to get a sense of that which lies behind human suffering. It is important when dealing with incurable diseases to see them within a wider context, which can help us accept them and cope with greater dignity. Don't allow chances to slip by which could deepen your education on these issues.
“That which applies to the physical also applies to the psychological, where long-standing pain can continue to influence us, causing us to feel insecure, fearful, inadequate, ashamed or vulnerable. The deeper purpose underlying such forms of suffering can be understood only on an individual level. This is a particularly good time to start a course or begin some kind of training concerned with such issues, or to undergo an appropriate form of therapy.
“It is important to understand that you will only be able to help yourself and others if you can admit that you also need help. Try not to fall into the trap of feeling superior if others confide in you – even if you are making great strides in your personal development. It is only by not losing sight of your own need for help that you will truly be able to help others to understand and accept themselves.”
Astrologer Melanie Reinhart offers additional insights and cautions:
“With Jupiter in aspect to Chiron, we could experience quests, journeys, and pilgrimages that are immensely productive of healing and inner growth. The crucial factor is our willingness to reflect deeply on our experiences, to balance our expansion with enough stillness and introversion where some inner synthesis can be reached. If we let Chiron/Jupiter run away with us, we are in danger of leaving a trail of unprocessed life-experience behind us, becoming ungrounded and losing our humanity.
“With Chiron/Jupiter, we have an astonishing ability to bounce back from illnesses, personal tragedies and crises of faith. We tend to overdo things and to experience the extraordinary. We are very alive to the archetypal level of life in these areas, but sometimes also prone to excess, fanaticism and messianism…
“Our intuition is strong, and we may have intimations of the future but also have difficulty bringing these possibilities or lofty ideas into form… Through acknowledging our deep need for an inner source of wisdom and guidance for ourselves, we can perhaps eventually relinquish these extremes and find the Inner Teacher speaking quietly within.”
It is clear that with Jupiter and Chiron aligned, there are tremendous opportunities for us both to develop our healing gifts and to make significant progress on our personal spiritual path - but along the way, we must also take care of our own wounds and fears as they arise, and not allow the hubris of Jupiter or the illusory influence of Neptune to inhibit our efforts.
