Zodiac Healing Sign describes your characteristics based on the placement of Chiron in your birth chart. Chiron describes about the problems that you may have faced in childhood and how you tend to make an extra effort to overcome them later in life and help others who may face the same issues. Along with the sun sign and moon sign, the healing sign also helps you understand yourself better. Chiron in Greek means one who has hands. This has given rise to a most unconventional kind of astrology. The name has come from Greek mythology where a Centaur was abandoned by his parents but later grew up to become a good person only because he was able to understand his suffering and work on it to become a better man.
