138 | Discovering Chariklo (Chiron’s Wife)

Chariklo is the recently discovered asteroid of healing grace, and as Chiron’s feminine counterpart, she holds space for healing through a soft, calm presence… ✨

In this episode, I’m discussing a new asteroid I have been working with to help me anchor into my feminine side as a healer without needing so strongly to control others’ experiences on their healing journey (or even my own).

Chariklo is the wife of Chiron, the asteroid known as the Wounded Healer. As the mythological story goes, Chiron was the original father of healing and medicine, and yet he himself had a wound he could never heal. So, who do you think held space for Chiron’s suffering? That would be his wife, Chariklo!


  • How and when Chariklo was discovered as well as what she represents in astrology
  • Where Chariklo is in the sky right now and how she points to how we can heal with grace as a collective at this time on the planet
  • How to look up Chariklo in your birth chart and decode what it means for you in terms of how you can bring healing grace into your life & others’ lives

  1. Hi Natalie,
    I really enjoyed your podcast on Chariklo recently. Quite well covered in such a short amount of time. I especially like you talking about Grace, and Holding Space.

    However, I did want to mention that the name is pronounced with more of a hard K sound at the beginning. I spoke with a few people from Greece who told me that she begins with the same first letter as Chiron, Χ which has a sound much closer to a K than a Chi.
    Chiron – Χείρων
    Chariklo – Χαρικλώ

    You may wish to tune in to a talk I am doing online next month on Chiron and Chariko:

    By the way, I have Chariklo in Sagittarius in the tenth house, conjunct the MC, closely opposite my Mercury/Mars conjunction in Gemini.

    Best wishes,
