As healing Chiron turns retrograde in your sign, you’ll examine yourself under a stronger lens. What kind of mark are you leaving in the world? Are you doing work that satisfies your soul? Does the authentic behind-the-scenes you match your public persona, or are you living a double life? These are the kinds of questions you may grapple with between now and December 15.
