"Being witnessed is essential to our humanity, our growth, and our ability to move past the trauma that we have survived. If astrology does its job, it offers a mirror in which we see both our best selves and our growth edges."
you were born for this
astrology 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.
"Spoiler alert: this book is actually a portal! Step through and have an intimate, no-nonsense conversation with Chani about the particular patterns of your journey by starlight."

"Every page in this book reminds us that we can do more than merely weather our personal storms; we can dance in the rain and learn from it."
