Description

The beloved Los Angeles' astrologer with more than one million fans shows a new generation how to use astrology as a tool for self-discovery, success, and self-care in this revolutionary guide.

Modern astrology isn't about passively accepting our fate, it's about action, and beloved astrologer Chani Nicholas shows you how to bring this life-changing practice into your life and embrace self-empowerment, intentionality, and spirituality. Gone are the days of "on Tuesday you will meet your prince charming" horoscopes. Instead, Nicholas is spearheading a radical new approach to astrology. In her hip, inspirational weekly horoscopes, she doesn't tell readers what will happen to them. Instead, she encourages her devotees to take control-to confront themselves, their desires, and their needs-to fulfill their potential using the power of the stars.

Written in her lyrical, cool-girl, feminist writing style, You Were Born for This explains how knowing your star signs and what they mean for your individual character can be revelatory. Understanding the astrological chart can help you refine your intentions, identify your strengths, recognize areas for growth, become more connected to your core self, and steer you on your spiritual path.

In an era when growing numbers of people feel a sense of meaninglessness and a desire to learn more about themselves, You Were Born for This teaches you how to harness the zodiac to help you become more in tune with yourself and your place in the universe.

Review quote

&#8220A glorious exploration not of self-fulfilling prophecies but a life-affirming guide on how to be an engaged, intentional participant in your truest purpose. This book teaches you that you don't have to be a passenger to fate or a victim to history. A valuable, dazzling resource, Chani Nicholas has given us an owner's manual for our individual destinies."-- Mary H.K. Choi, New York Times bestselling author &#8220These times call for Chani Nicholas' signature and pioneering blend of spiritual insight and woke political urgency...a book brimming with great astrological information in easily digestible bites. You'll understand yourself so much better after you read this book. And your friends will wonder when you became so wise!"--Brittney Cooper, author of Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower " Chani presents an introduction to astrology that is at once extremely approachable and incredibly meticulous, opening up an entire galaxy of possibilities for you and the life you're living. This is the best kind of 'Choose-Your-Own' adventure book I've ever been on--I had no idea what the stars had in store. And I'm so glad Chani was the one, through this book, to tell me!"--Philip Picardi, editor in chief of Out Magazine &#8220Chani Nicholas gives us the keys to self-understanding, and thus the keys to our healing...Chani shows us we can actively work to heal old wounds, and we can actively work to show gratitude for the gifts our stars bring us. Through astrology and her own personal anecdotes, Chani pushes us to re-write old narratives and guides us to new understandings. You Were Born For This is a revelation and should be required life-reading."--Fatimah Asghar, author of If They Come For Us "Chani cares about us, she cares about justice, and she wants us to see the many ways we are miraculous and capable of shaping powerful lives. Spoiler alert: this book is a portal! Step through and have an intimate, no-nonsense conversation with Chani about your journey by starlight."--adrienne maree brown, author of Emergent Strategy and Pleasure Activism &#8220Chani Nicholas sees you...an ongoing sequence of epiphanies and 'ah-ha!' moments that you'll underline and see yourself reflected. This book is the new source of truth for astrology. We are so lucky to have Chani Nicholas' work for our generation."--Fran Tirado, writer &#8220Make no mistake: Chani Nicholas is a poet. The compassion and insight she stitches into every sentence amounts to a kind of grace. Every page in this book reminds us we can do more than merely weather our personal storms; we can dance in the rain and learn from it."--Saeed Jones, author of How We Fight For Our Lives
