Chiron & Chronos - time angels
Ah, time! I was Cesarian born, with the timing chosen by the doctor, as my mom had polio at 9, & they were concerned about pelvic dimension . . . . so my time was chosen 'for me,' & I struggled with being 'on time' for many years. Now, I'm often the 'early one,' which is a delightful shift! (a tendency to be 'right on time,' not really very early)
Chiron, mythologically the centaur with a Mystery School on Mt Olympus, who sent folks on their spiritual quest, is an asteroid (or centaur - with an orbit that's somewhat comet like! go figure :) which, in the astrological chart, influences ones' healing issues & lessons. Chironic time is the time of synchronicity - the day you don't have anything planned, & a friend shows up 'out of the blue' to invite you to lunch! Or there's a workshop that 'just happens' to have one place left, just when you find out about it . . . .
Chronos time is more 'clock time,' the time of Saturn, a steady pattern, schedules, appointments, being 'on time.' I work by appointments, & enjoy unscheduled time - & the time that 'just shows up' when I happen to have a free morning. I need a balance of each, for my spirit to soar!
As I look at what I wish to release into the water, I would release procrastination that doesn't serve me - the bills I wait to pay, tho there's money in the bank, just because it isn't do yet; & release the sense of obligation to 'finish' things before I'm ready, projects & programs that I 'think' I 'should' have finished awhile ago!! I invite myself to find my perfect timing!
