Unsolicited Praise

Here’s hoping that you get this all the time, enough to fill up your bucket, but thank you!

In the last year your words have slowly been making their way into my life, into my community.  At first it would be like, “Have you ever read Chani Nicholas?” and now it’s like, “Did you get your weekly dose of realness yet?” and I know exactly what they’re talking about.

On an individual level, your weekly posts have been a huge part of my personal growth.  A weekly reminder to stop, look, and listen.  Some weeks it’s a particular phrase that grabs me, and others the entire affirmation hits me.  It gives me clarity, something to focus on, and enriches my experience.  I’ve made some really great life decisions because my brain was working, either consciously or unconsciously on something you wrote.

But also, it’s been an amazing tool on the level of the community.  (I don’t know what it is about queer community and your words, but they stick here!)  Now when I read your posts, I read them with everyone in mind.  I look at the folks around me, and their struggles are reflected so well in what you say.  Suddenly I am reading words that all the people I love are reading and taking to heart, and I feel closer, more open, more empathetic, and more ready to give to them.  I don’t know if that makes sense, but knowing that everyone I love is also reading your words, and we all have this collective experience and frame of reference…we can just look at each other and say, “whoa.  you’ve got a lot on your plate.”  Empathy.  It’s a big gift. -JM


Your blog was recommend to me by my best friend and I am finding myself thinking of you as a new friend. I look for your posts for clarity and guidance. I have always been sceptical of horoscopes as my own intuition is strong so I’ve never felt the need to read them… however my life turned upside down almost 2 years ago, and that journey has revealed many incredible messages. One of them is how much I believe in astrology.

A big thank you from me, you have helped me find the patience, compassion and trust in myself that I needed to get through a though time. I’m not out of the woods but I’m getting there, and when I find myself in doubt of my own voice and intuition, I read your posts and find myself reassured. I know ‘they’ say we read into horoscopes looking for the messages we want, but I can genuinely say I find your posts on my birth sign and rising sign scarily accurate. It’ s like I had to discover your blog the time I did, like a little bit of magic : ) -CP


“I’ve been an astrology student since 1984, read many texts and thought about the truths revealed via the astrological lens. But I can honestly say that your New Moon in Leo blog I read today is beyond compare in terms of wonderfulness, Light and Wisdom. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for your words. -DB

“I just have to let you know that your truly gifted and your gift is such a blessing to me.  Your words open my heart and validate my lived experience which is important for me as I develop my wise woman inner knowing. Also your politics are totally rad! All that to say: thank you.” TD


“I’ve been enjoying you blog for some time now. I usually joke that I’m dead inside and that astrology is literary snake oil but your writings and videos are very much appreciated, enjoyed, and dare I say insightful.” BF


As one who used to study astrology as part of my work at the time (I was a Hypnotherapist, specializing in Past Life Regressions), yours is the best astrological writing I’ve seen in 30+ years. I have forwarded your website to a number of friends, and they agree wholeheartedly with my assessment. Thank you so much for sharing your understanding with the world!-ELS


“I stopped reading …astrology in the last couple years, it wasn’t resonating. I thought I was leaving the world of astrology behind until I read Chani! A true gift from the heavens. A thank you Chani! You can quote me on it.” ZJFM


“Chani..You epic poetess. i stumbled upon your blog about 8 months ago purely by chance, and being a long time lover of astrology myself, I was instantly thrilled and tickled by your enchanting, sassy, intensely insightful descriptive style. It has often felt when reading your words, like you are pouring the contents of my soul out on the screen in written form. I am ever so grateful each week for the brilliance that you share, your words move, motivate and nourish me. I read a lot of astrology each week (lifeline like tendrils to reality, through these wavy times) and yours stands out with panache..it was not surprise to learn you were a cancerian. I am too..i guess thats why I love your brand of humour so very much.. Anyways…just wanted to gush a bit. You rock sister. Keep it up. You’re changing lives out here.”-EM

“Chani, Just want to thank you for an amazing, mind blowing, heart wrenching, soul searching reading.  Everybody loves you and speaks so highly of you. Now I know too.” ED

“Your posts are truly inspiring and I feel so connected to that deeper understanding of all that is, every time I read them. Just wanted to share this with you and say thank you again!”- MS


“Your words have been eerily accurate for me over the last few months. I can not tell you how much I appreciate that you emphasize personal responsibility and do away with all the fluff that other astrology blogs can be filled with. I feel empowered and called to action personally or otherwise by your weekly predictions…it is my choice to harness and adequately use the energies that surround me, not just a give in! I look forward to Monday every week!” -JL


 

“As you know, dear Chani, I’ve worked with several very talented astrologers and while I am certainly no expert, I do feel I have a realistic barometer for assessment. While each of them have their respective gifts and talents, in my humble opinion, yours far exceed those of the others. This is by no means a criticism of the others, it is merely an observation, a study in comparison, a personal opinion. You have become a trusted guide for me and for that, I am grateful. Often times when I feel lacking in direction, uncertain about the future, indulge in my tendency toward self doubt, I return to listen to your readings to help ground, to gain clarity, to obtain a better sense of direction.” – KW


“I’ve recently discovered your blog by chance and I absolutely love it. Your insight, warmth and ways of communicating ideas are a breath of fresh air. It feels as though you are a light worker.” – HL


“Seriously, your words have been eerily accurate for me over the last few months. I can not tell you how much I appreciate that you emphasize personal responsibility and do away with all the fluff that other astrology blogs can be filled with. I feel empowered and called to action personally or otherwise by your weekly predictions…it is my choice to harness and adequately use the energies that surround me, not just a give in! I look forward to Monday every week!” MS
