Unlike the drunken centaurs, Chiron was wise, with extensive knowledge of the healing arts, astrology, music and medicine.

Thus his wound was in a sense self-inflicted, for he himself had taught the hero to make the poisoned arrow by dipping it in the blood of the Hydra.

The last of his kind, Chiron relinquished immortality so that the titanic rebel Prometheus who brought the gift of fire — stolen from the gods — to the human race could be released from his eternal torment.

Chiron is a knowledge-holder who transmits higher teachings, either as an outer teacher Saturn , or as an inner teacher or spirit guide Uranus.

Embodying the archetype of "the wounded healer", Chiron stresses the importance of going within to find an answer — and then sharing it with others. In education, music and medicine, Chiron unites the body and mind, instinct and intellect.
