Everyone has an area in life that we loathe about ourselves and no matter what, it is always in the background causing us in some ways to be tortured by the overwhelming insecurity of it all. Chiron is what causes these feelings of inadequacy to hang over our heads.
These are inner demons we struggle with and try to evade but are not always successful at entirely detaching ourselves from them. No matter how much we run from this issue we can’t escape it, that is why we must work on these self-conscious issues, so we can move forward and finally discard them.
Chiron triggers our repressed emotions and causes us to deal with the things we bottle up. This planet doesn't allow you to sweep things under the rug for long because this planet wants you to work on these issues so that you can move on to your real purpose.

What is Chiron
Chiron is a minor planet that takes about 50 years or so the move through the zodiac. When it is in retrograde, it stays there for a good 5 months. Chiron is the bridge between our last personal planet to the first outer planet allowing us to travel from the gateway of consciousness to the realm of transcendence.
Chiron can do this because of its Unique orbit between Saturn and Uranus. It spends a period inside Saturn's orbit and then travels over to the outer orbit of Uranus. So, in many ways, it is a messenger transmitting from our conscious to the subconscious level.
There seem to be many renditions of this legend, but this is the way the story of Chiron goes. He was known as the wounded healer, in Greek mythology, he was a centaur who had terrific healing abilities. He was injured by a poison arrow and survived it because of his immortality. However, he was unable to heal from it.
Even though, Chiron was a world-class healer he was unable to regenerate his own wound. Zeus, the god of all gods, had captured Prometheus for stealing fire from the gods and gifting it to humans and was being tortured for that.
Chiron decided to sacrifice himself to save Prometheus and traded place with him. For this reason, Zeus to pity on Chiron and freed him from his suffering and when he did, he was transformed into the constellation Sagittarius.
