Unity of heart and mind is a good demand. Chiron balancing saturnian strength and skills with neptunian love and compassion, represented by his father/ mother. But Chiron (as an image of the archetypal self) does not get swallowed by the patriarch nor engulfed by the matriarch, both abandoning him having their own agendas. He grows up without them, Apollo and Artemis being his foster parents.
“Isolated from traditional society, mentored by paradox and educated in diversity, Chiron merged instinct with intelligence and did not become overly identified with any one world. The concept of unity of person and environment was emphasized. Centered in the self, Chiron realized he could live life through the meaning he placed on the center. Unbiased he could view his life and the lives of others from a different point of view.”
- Patricia Lantz: Chironic Kids, Mentors and Teachers. www.allthingshealing.com/Astrology/Chironic-Kids--Mentors-and-Teachers/10833#.V-AonyN97PB (section two in 'Paradox, Diversity and Synthesis'.)
