NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
"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.
