For years you have asked, and finally we have delivered. We are so excited to introduce your 2022 Guidebook - a 90+ page digital book jam-packed with detailed readings, homework, checklists, affirmations and more for your sign for the year of 2022. 

From overflowing chalices to the gates of the underworld, 2022 is a year of extremes. We start with a Venus retrograde and end with a Mars retrograde. Between these thresholds, the dragon head and tail change signs; Jupiter trance-dances with Neptune, then scorches into Aries; and Mars and Saturn continue to clang scythes. 

To find your way through the tumult, it’s helpful to have a roadmap and guide that you can keep coming back to.

Your 90+ page PDF guidebook includes: 

Part 1: An overview of the astrology for 2022, including:

  • Lists of Key Dates for Transits, Ingresses & Retrogrades, as well as New and Full Moons
  • A detailed breakdown of next year’s major planetary ingresses and transits, including articles on key astrological moments like Mercury retrogrades, eclipses, and Saturn returns

Part 2: A forecast unique for your sign, including:

  • An explanation of the major astrological themes impacting you each quarter, and how to work with them;
  • A checklist, homework, journal prompts, and affirmations for each quarter.

FAQ: How do the Year Ahead and Guidebook differ?

Think podcast vs. book on the same topic (in this case, 2022 for your sign). Both are useful, distinct, and offer different ways of accessing and referencing what you are learning about yourself and your year. It all depends on how you like to take in information — are you a visual learner? Would you rather listen to information? If you enjoy audio and visual learning, you might consider having both to cross reference. 

The Year Ahead is predominantly a series of audio recordings to listen to on the go, while you are cooking dinner, or doing laundry. It also offers journal prompts, altar suggestions, rituals and guided meditations around 4 themes of the year. 

The Guidebook begins with a detailed overview of the year’s astrology that you can reference throughout the year. It includes tips on how to make the most of these astrological moments, a diary of dates, and bonus educational content along the way (e.g. Eclipse etiquette 101, How to work with Mercury Retrograde, etc). Part 2 of the guidebook delves into the year for your specific sign and includes homework, journal prompts, affirmations, and more specific to your sign for each quarter. 

Our recommendation? The two make great companions to each other! 

Should I purchase the guidebook for my sun sign or my rising sign?

We recommend purchasing the Guidebook for your rising sign, primarily because your rising sign determines which areas of your life the upcoming astrology will impact. The predictive nature of horoscopes is due to how we track certain transiting planets as they relate to your chart’s houses, which is determined by your rising sign in the Whole Sign Houses system, the house system we use. It is not meant to suggest that your sun sign is not important. The reading for your sun sign will tell you how the astrology will affect your sun, i.e. your life energy, personality and way of being in the world. Both are important, but ultimately, it’s up to you and you could always purchase both!

"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

This is your essential guide for radical self-acceptance. In her first book You Were Born For This, Chani shows how your birth chart reveals your unique life path, purpose, gifts, 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.

Making this a gift? You can select to include our FREE holiday gift wrap with your purchase. You can also include a custom, handwritten message on a handmade greeting card from the GIFTED team.
