NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER


From beloved astrologer Chani Nicholas comes an essential guide for radical self-acceptance.

Your weekly horoscope is merely one crumb of astrology's cake. In her first book You Were Born For This, Chani shows how your birth chart—a snapshot of the sky at the moment you took your first breath—reveals your unique talents, challenges, and opportunities. Fortified with this knowledge, you can live out the life you were born to. Marrying the historic traditions of astrology with a modern approach, You Were Born for This explains the key components of your birth chart in an easy to use, choose your own adventure style. With journal prompts, reflection questions, and affirmations personal to your astrological makeup, this book guides you along the path your chart has laid out for you.

Chani makes the wisdom of your birth chart accessible with three foundational keys:

  • The First Key: Your Sun (Your Life's Purpose)
  • The Second Key: Your Moon (Your Physical and Emotional Needs)
  • The Third Key: Your Ascendant and Its Ruler (Your Motivation for Life and the Steersperson of Your Ship)
  • Astrology is not therapy, but it is therapeutic. In a world in which we are taught to look outside of ourselves for validation, You Were Born for This brings us inward to commit to ourselves and our life's purpose.

          "Ms. Nicholas's words covered me in a sheen of being known. And being known, or at least, being treated as knowable and worth knowing, is the most comforting thing in the universe." — New York Times

          "This book, with the nurturing yet guiding prose that Nicholas is known for, helps readers see that even the softest, most tender bits of ourselves —those bits are made of starstuff, too." — Allure

          "Like Nicholas's entire body of work, the book elucidates a system of logic and explains how that system can be put to use." — Vanity Fair

          "Chani reminds us that astrology is a tool—and not a be-all, end-all guide to your life. I can't recommend [it] enough." — Oprah Magazine

          "A toolkit for self-discovery." — Vox

          "Chani encourages us to use astrology as a tool that can deepen our understanding of our place in the world." — Los Angeles Times

          “Make 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

          “Chani 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

          “These 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 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

          “Chani 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

          “A 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

          " 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...

          Starred review from December 30, 2021

          Nicholas, a Webby Award--winning astrologer, brings 20 years of "counseling astrology" and one million readers to her first book, described as a "choose your own adventure" guide and workbook. Her thorough and easy-to-use text is divided into five sections, each of which includes journaling prompts, questions for reflection, personalized affirmations, and summaries. Nicholas gently guides readers through an existential journey in which she breaks down three foundational keys to Western astrology: sun, moon, and ascendant signs based on time and location of birth. She opens the book and sets the tone with a personal narrative (she discusses early childhood trauma and her own journey of radical self-acceptance) but focuses the majority of her text on covering basic astrological definitions and the roles of planets and signs. She uses the astrological charts of Maya Angelou and Frida Kahlo as examples to explain major concepts. Nicholas is a poetic and direct teacher who has created interactive exercises on her website, and her book will give readers an illuminating experience with many "aha" moments. VERDICT The ideal readers for this book are introspective, contemplative, reflective, curious types searching for a fun and practical guide to finding self-acceptance and meaning in their lives.--Anita Mechler, Anita Mechler Consulting, New Orleans
