“The deeply open heart is the Heart that feels life and does not protect us from it, the Heart passionately and equally open to both the pain of loss and the joy of connection without resistance.” from Chiron, The Wisdom of a Deeply Open Heart

In Chiron: The Wisdom of a Deeply Open Heart, Adam lays out his original map for our path from origin of the ‘sacred wound,’ the psyche’s defenses and emotional reality of the wound resurfacing later in life, and how the wound becomes our ‘sacred medicine’ or our unique and embodied wisdom. Most notable is Adam’s original method of effectively interpreting Chiron’s polarity position within an evolutionary framework.

The book also explores the meaning of Chiron’s glyph; Chiron through the signs and houses; in depth examinations of the sacred wound, the medicine, the broken-open heart and the medicine-walk archetypes; the karmic implications of Chironic placement; Chiron retrograde; and the popular article, “The Chiron-Moon Connection.”

    I was hooked from the start by the title. Often referred to as the ‘wounded healer’, astrological Chiron reveals what it means to be truly, wisely human… A cookbook section showing Chiron by sign and house is included. Set aside the weekend for this one. – Margaret Cahill, The Wessex Astrologer, UK

    I just wanted to say a general thanks for the Chiron book by Adam Gainsburg. I really have to extend gratitude here. The book is now sacred text for me. I have Chiron all over the place; retrograde, conjunct my moon and square my nodes. If it wasn’t for this text…this book re-framed my whole self-definition. It’s helped make sense of everything the last couple of years has tried to show me. I started my own personal journey of healing nine years ago and this book has definitely concluded a long, sometimes agonizing chapter. I can’t put it all into words but it’s been deeply empowering to rediscover. The feeling of wholeness that comes with the acceptance of the wound is…the most powerful force…I can think of… Anyway, thanks again. Much Love.

    I am reading and rereading your wonderful book. Each paragraph deserves an immediate re-reading, the material is so rich and profound. I am so glad for astrology’s sake that you wrote this: what a contribution it is. ~ Jessica Murray, astrologer, activist, author of Soul-Sick Nation
