Just to slow us down when we do lapse into Trying to Understand, the next-most prominent elements of the Chiron Station chart are two Yin Gates.  A Yin Gate happens when three planets are one Sign apart, each Opposite another planet, forming a rectangle bisected in the long dimension.

Put Mercury (☿) at the bottom of the chart to see one of the Yin Gates, characterized graphically by two green Xs in a tall blue rectangle, with a red asterisk between them.  Put Ixion and Pholus (Pholus.svg) at the bottom of the chart to see the second Yin Gate.

A Yin Gate symbolizes a Mystery School, the purpose of which is to move the Initiate past the Duality of the mind and into Recognizing the Unitary Multidimensionality of the Real World.  Which means, from the perspective of Dualism, Paradox.  The Real World is nonlinear, the primary manifestation of which is that Contradiction is a property of the Observing mind, not a property of the Observed World.

The primary Paradox is Illuminated by the central Opposition – here Chaos (Unlimited Potential) Opposite Ixion-Pholus (Responding to our Forbidden Genius), and Mercury (Awareness) Opposite Sedna-Lachesis (Reframing Fear).  The four corners of the blue rectangle, and the diagonal Oppositions, flesh out the nature of the paradox.

So for instance we might initially believe that the likely result of Responding to our Forbidden Genius would be Punishment, as that has likely been our historical Experience.  In general, an astrological Opposition (Second Harmonic) doesn’t imply a Logical Contradiction, since the Second Harmonic is about Ritual.  The Opposition implies the Duality that we must Do the Ritual correctly or it won’t work, because the Power of Ritual lies in Repetition.

So the proper Cultural and Religious Ritual is to quite purposely NOT Respond to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius.  Responding would Open a social can of worms, of Unlimited Potential for Disorder.  Dwarf planet Chaos by itself doesn’t symbolize Disorder, it implies Unrealized Potential.  The proper Esoteric Psychological Ritual is that we MUST Respond to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius, or suffer forever remaining a Partial Person.  The proper Esoteric Religious Ritual is to Constrain Response to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius within the bounds of Rituals that are kept Private from the general public.

The proper 5D Ritual is that Responding to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius (and tolerating the actual or perceived 3D social condemnation) is necessary for Yintegrity to function.  As Rudhyar said, “When you don’t follow your nature there is a hole in the universe where you were supposed to be.”

Recovering your Forbidden Genius is a prerequisite for moving to 5D – where you will have Unlimited Potential to Manifest your Deepest Desires.  If you feel like you Understand that, you’ll have to Let It Go, because Paradox isn’t something that we Understand, it’s something we have to Accept, and something that’s Initiated by Confusion and Curiosity.  There are still miles to go before we sleep.
