Love and Let Go: A Journey Through Venus Retrograde
"Chani is an intelligently intuitive astrologer who uses her fine attention to detail to access the depth of your chart. Her insight is practical and uplifting and she takes the time to mirror and empathize your particular life path. She is open to questions and uses a strengths based approach when shedding light on challenging astro aspects we all feel at some time in our lives."
"Chani is one of those rare humans that has the ability to plug her heart into the stars and relay the messages she hears. Our time together was full of insight and aha moments—and her reading brought the support of the universe closer to home, which is where I needed it to be."
“There's B.C. and A.C. And that's Before Chani and After Chani. I'm still just taking it all in. Of course no two readings are alike, but if your experience of your chart reading is anything like mine, 1. Your eyes will be opened to yourself in new ways 2. You'll feel the power 3. of yourself & the universe 4. of yourself in the universe 5. You'll be humbled 6. You'll be humbled by all you know, by all you knew you knew, by all you have still yet to learn."
"I absolutely loved my reading with Chani! Although I am a complete astrology junkie, I somehow have always been reluctant to spend money on a chart reading. However, I can honestly say that Chani is truly worth her weight in gold. Not only does she have an amazing philosophical compass, but she is thoughtful, and genuinely cares about her craft. This woman is the TRUTH."
"During my individual reading, Chani was compassionate, encouraging, insightful, and delightfully nerdy about astrology. I highly value her weekly blog updates, and have started taking her classes - I find her guidance to be on point, and her delivery charismatic. I can hear the passionate queer femme fighting for her community in all her words, and I so appreciate having access to that wisdom and voice. Thank you for your work!"
"Chani's intelligence and intuition are profound - head-shakingly so. My reading with her surpassed my expectations and I would highly recommend her to friends. She's one of those people on the planet that have found the exact thing that lights them up, the thing they were meant to do, the thing they're brilliant at. She shines from this place and offers insight and wisdom from there. I'm happy to have found her."
"With insight, humor and a deep understanding of the stars Chani cuts through the B.S. and clarifies situations, potentials and the complexities of one's chart. A reading with her is always illuminating, humbling and ultimately power generating. Because knowledge and understanding is power."
"Chani masterfully translated both the fundamentals and the complexity of my chart into clear, direct, and spot-on descriptions of my experiences. For the first time, I truly understand the inherent opposition within myself, and I can embrace both "sides" with love and compassion. Thank you, Chani!"
"It has taken me a week to offer a review because it takes a bit to integrate the experience. I was a card carrying Chani fan before the reading, I am now contemplating a tattoo. It is fascinating that she can decipher the magical code/map of our lives so accurately and deliver the information with the nuances and richness of a lived experience. Thank you for the life affirming reading, for seeing me clearly and compassionately, I feel stronger in my truth thanks to your Divine witnessing. Gracias."
"Chani Nicholas uses her expertise in astrology to create consultations that increase self-awareness and catalyzes right action in the lives of her clients--it is more strategic intervention or coaching session than reading & I need it and want more of it!"
"I had an amazing reading with Chani. After we finished I felt as though she took the lid off of the container I had been attempting to hide in. I feel like light. Chani has a gift and is a gift. I am forever grateful for her wisdom and guidance. I feel educated and prepared to walk through this transformational period I am in."
"The reading was astonishing. Accurate. Revealing. Mystical. Eye-opening. I have a deeper understanding of what makes me be me. I honestly did not expect any of this. I also felt a kind of numinous presence during the reading. It's a great gift to give yourself, or a child in your care. Like getting an instruction manual!"
"Whether you believe in astrology or not, Chani provides a valuable insight to who you are and why you are the way you are. I, myself, did not subscribe to astrology until I met Chani. Her brand of astrology is fearless, honest, and at times, brutal. Because opening our eyes to the truth can be a brutal experience for some. However, rest assured that it is all part of becoming a better you. For this and more, I am deeply thankful to have met Chani."
"Chani is the rare combo of extraordinary mystic and no-nonsense friend that one dreams of in a spiritual consultant. Her reading is intelligent, insightful, encouraging and above all, accurate. It's amazing, unnerving even, that someone on the other side of the country could know so much about you perhaps even before your first meeting. Chani is a coach, confidante and voice of wisdom that anyone seeking their destiny should welcome in their journey."
“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.”
“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.”
"For your astrological work, your activism, and your commitment to positive growth for all of us, I thank you Chani! So many times when I've read your work in the midst of a particularly difficult or traumatic time, the writing stops my monkey mind, opens my heart, mobilizes my mouth, and frees my soul a little bit more."
"I didn't feel as though Chani changed my world with what she had to say, but instead she proved so wholly and uniquely capable of getting to the heart of my chart. Chani was able to reaffirm some of my own thoughts on my chart and my personality, and brought her trademark tone of humour, savvy, and accessibility to the call. She's fantastic."
"Chani beautifully weaves the foundational and ancient pieces of traditional astrology into the frameworks and dreams of our ever changing social, political, and psychological world. Her language is precise and witty, structured in such a way that I felt she was singing the alchemical language of the stars in the organized and synchronized way my brain needs to hear. Highly recommend!!"
“Chani should be a national treasure. She is a gifted and dedicated astrologer who brings insight and empathy to helping people draw deeper meaning from their lives towards personal and social transformation. I am very grateful for the time, skill and meaningful consideration she gave to my chart and to helping me along my journey!”
"My reading with Chani was everything that I'd hoped it to be. She wasted no time in the hour we had together-- translating my chart to reveal a great spectrum of vital information that I really needed to hear at this time. I've listened to our recording over and over again in the days following our appointment to revisit her words and wisdom; and will continue to do so in the days to come.”
"Leave it to Chani to tell it like it is with all heart, pure mind, and shining spirit. Very validating, comforting and invigorating; I feel blessed to have her reflect the guidance of the stars to me and put into words and solidify what was previously unnamed and murky. I'd recommend to anyone and everyone!"
"This was my first reading, and I was so impressed with Chani’s wisdom, kindness, and expertise. Her reading affirmed my reality and named my truth in a way that was both practically helpful and spiritually life-giving. It helped me contextualize current life happenings and understand their place in the big picture of my life. Ultimately, Chani was able to name what I already knew and identify the truths within me, helping me to coax them out and give them expression."
"I am a long time blog reader of Chani's. I love how hard hitting and poetic her posts are. They always are something I meditate heavily on and her words pepper my journals. Holy wow. She is so insightful, so direct. I have been listening to the recording again and again. It was more than astrology for me. It was reaffirmation that there is something bigger going on. Something written. Purpose. Thank you Chani!"
"Chani is truly a gifted astrologer. I felt she really saw me, with compassion and kindness. She helped my to see my own struggles and difficulties, not as flaws, but as resulting from pain, and that the struggle is part of the process of healing. Her words were encouraging, supportive, and illuminating. She really helped me to better understand myself, and also astrology. Thank you so much, Chani!"
"You know those secret things you wonder about yourself and how you engage with the world? In one of the most satisfying hours I've had, Chani touched on so many things for me, I'm still elated and spinning. She is incredibly talented. Her intuitive and informational knowledge is vast and offered a view of my chart that gave me so many access points and answers and new questions. Thank you Chani!"
“Chani Nicholas is a modern sage! My astrology reading was transformative. Her fresh interpretation is founded so deeply in the rich history and myth of the past but offers a positive and unique way of seeing things unprecedented in the field of astrology. She has a deep wisdom and insight coupled with a sense of humor and a palpable nurturing touch. I felt so encouraged to embrace the essence of parts of my fate and that has already made such a difference.”
"No one, except 1 other person in my life, knows me well enough to speak to all the things Chani could see in my chart. Her ability to read my chart (for the first time) with such accuracy was met only by her eloquence, compassion, and depth of insight. She really is a gifted communicator, able to touch the heart of the matter with soulful ease. Her insights and advice helped me renew hope in such profound, yet practical ways.”
"Chani has brought levels of understanding to my experience that I have never before been touched by. I am deeply grateful for the vision that she so generously shares. Though some of the truths that emerged shook me deeply, they were delivered so gently and with such care that I have found pathways to start to integrate them rapidly. The inspiration that is communicated by Chani's uplifting vision of humanity...is priceless!"
"Chani's astrology reading was mind-blowingly accurate, intensely personal and just what I needed to make sense of what has been a crazy year... A crazy life, really. I was looking for my center, grasping for purpose and beating myself up in the process. Since the reading I feel so much more grounded - and light at the same time - with a new sense of direction. I can't wait to book my next reading!"
"A beautiful, clear writer, and a very perceptive astrologer. I was moved by her blog, and had heard incredible things about her. I was not disappointed. She offered new insight into my natal chart, and answered all kinds of questions that came up for me during our reading, regarding vocation and love. Of course, it's a huge, multifaceted journey; any answers typically breed more questions! But her ability to help me integrate cosmological wisdom with daily life will surely be invaluable."
“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 tough time. When I find myself in doubt of my own voice and intuition, I read your posts and find myself reassured. 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 : )”
“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!”
“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.”
