Chariklo, at 150 miles across, the largest of the Centaur asteroids that orbit between Saturn and Uranus was recently discovered to have two rings. The larger ring measures 4 miles wide or 7 km and the outer ring measures 2 miles or 3 km across.
Chariklo the divine aspect of Chiron the wounded healer:
- Gift for creating or holding 'sacred space'.This can be instinctive, or through learned skills.
- A temenos, container or alembic within which the 'work of soul' is facilitated.
- The theme of boundaries also applies.
- Ability to witness. With Chariklo strong in a horoscope we find people doing the often 'invisible' work of caring for those who are in transition ... being born, giving birth, dealing with illness or dying.
- Chariklo is a midwife. Literally, as in physical birth and death, or metaphorically when we 'die' to an old identity or way of life.
- A deeply yin energy, out of which new yang is born. Recognition of the silent power of this profound receptivity.
- We find Chariklo representing a reservoir of compassion, devotion, discernment and presence. Being dutiful, consistent, supportive, forebearing, kindly and nurturing." By Melanie Reinhart Melanie Reinhart
