Daily Horoscopes For Each Zodiac Sign – August 18th, 2019

We begin this lovely day with the Moon void-of-course until late morning. Once it moves into Aries, it conjuncts Chiron, which continues to be Retrograde in Aries.

Mars, ruler of Aries, tiptoed into Virgo in the middle of the night so there’s an additional layer of logic and criticism with this pairing.

This might indicate that we become more critical of ourselves, or someone else. Mind that tongue! It’s as sharp as your wit and your anger.

This is a no-nonsense energy and brooks no fooling around. We may be able to accomplish things, but we run the real risk of being cocky and holier-than-thou. Humility is your keyword today.

Chiron is a comet that has been included in zodiacal readings since 1977, when it was discovered orbiting the Sun between Saturn and Uranus.

Named after the centaur Chiron of Greek mythology, Chiron was a healer and teacher who, ironically, could never heal himself after being hurt over and over for no reason.

Chiron, also called the “wounded healer,” represents the internal wounds we are expected to heal in the course of our lifetime.

Its placement in the natal chart shows us where we’re wounded and points out the healing powers we hold as a result of these deep spiritual injuries.

When Chiron goes retrograde, the wounds that have been buried deep in our subconscious come to light. It’s like a window of opportunity that allows us to fully glance at our soul’s past journey.

Some of these wounds relate to karma, abandonment, and physical trauma. But in what can be a very dark place, there’s gold to be mined.

Do you want to learn more about your personality and life? You won’t believe what the science of Astrology can uncover.

Studying your astrological sign can reveal detailed information about who you truly are. It’s unbelievable how accurate it is!
