Our childhood wounds and patterns from early parenting have a profound effect all through our adult lives, shaping our relationships, attitudes and our self-perception. They can continue to rock us to the core 10, 20, 30 or even 40 years later -- that’s how deep their reach is.

Shedding the unhealthy patterns, especially the baggage that’s been carried over from generation to generation, can be extremely challenging. But this week the stars are giving you a healthy boost courtesy of Chiron, the "Wounded Healer." It’s currently in Pisces, the sign of the psyche and the collective unconscious.

On Sunday, August 24, it opposes Mercury, the planet of talking and thinking -- currently in sharp-minded, detail-obsessed Virgo. This is exactly where Mercury wants to be, as it's the ruler of Virgo (it also rules Gemini, incidentally).

Your brain power is apt to be super acute at this time, and the good news is that you can tap directly from it into your subconscious mind -- accessing the deeper material that usually stays submerged. A very particular memory of your childhood can come up now. And even if it’s painful to think about it, it’s rising to the surface to be healed.

Because Mercury is the planet in charge of writing and communication, this moment couldn’t be better for pouring your feelings into your journal. If you don’t have a current writing practice, this is an excellent moment to start one.

You'll probably find that the moment you put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) you’ll begin to access deep insights, emotions and powerful realizations about your past.
