This Father's Day comes with far more than cheesy Hallmark sentiments and the usual family barbecues. Even though it could get pretty intense, in the end it can bring you closer to the person who represents the idea of "father" to you.

Whether this is your biological father, a guardian or mentor, or an uncle or teacher who stood in for your absent dad, this is a profound opportunity to strengthen your bonds. You can even do this even if your father has long passed -- the astrology is that powerful.

On Saturday, the day before you take your dad out to lunch or call to wish him a happy Father's Day, a potent healing energy will already be stirring in the cosmos. Exact on Friday the 13, Saturn -- the planet that symbolizes the father -- is trine to Chiron, the comet astrologers call "the wounded healer."

A trine is a positive, uplifting astrological angle that creates an easy flow between planets. With Saturn currently in transformative Scorpio and Chiron in compassionate Pisces, we are gifted with a heightened understanding of family dynamics.

Collectively, we're being given the opportunity to heal our issues with the concept of the father -- men who are too rigid, mean, cold or controlling. Did your dad sometimes behave that way? Now you can forgive him, because you understand that he was just playing the role that society foisted on him -- and maybe he had some serious baggage courtesy of your grandparents.

With each generation, there's a new chance to heal, and now you're getting your own. Our culture doesn't like to let men be vulnerable, but Saturn trine Chiron says that there's profound strength in opening one's heart.

If your dad was all-around awesome, this is an opportunity to thank him and integrate that healthy, strong masculine energy into your own life. No matter your gender, and whether or not you have kids of your own or plan to have any, healing the wound is one of the most important ways for you to truly grow up and spread all that awesome around.

Happy Father's Day to the dads of the world -- thank you for everything you do!
