Publisher's Summary

From beloved astrologer Chani Nicholas comes an essential guide 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. 

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Sit down. Get comfortable. Take this slow.

I tried to get through this in a single day. Nope. That's not how this is going to work.

Chani is great with narration and this makes her writing feel even more personal. If I was reading this I would probably just consume the contents in search of the answers I was looking for, but the beauty here is you're listening with a human connection. Audio makes the content really hit home. While the book is only about 7 hours, I will be listening to this for weeks.

The pdf is huge and generous. My only wish is that the chapters would be labelled correctly so I could switch between them. Currently they are just numbers that don't correspond with the text. This is a common Audible problem...

EDIT: You can view the chapter titles when you listen to audio on the Audible website, but on the mobile app for Android the chapters are only listed as numbers.

Something is wrong with the recording (Audiobook)

I’m so sad to say this because I love Chani so much and was really excited about the book. But it’s very hard to listen to; every first word of each sentence seems cut off or you only hear half of it. I didn’t want to deal with shipping as I am all the way in Australia, but it’s really difficult to understand and listen to because of the recording. I hope they can somehow fix this.

All That I Am, Is How It Was Meant To Be

This arms you with insights that explain A LOT about your functioning and experiences. Provides you with a sense of inclusion and unique SS simultaneously. Very technical - in a Great way.

Great for the novice and seasoned student

Though I have a different way of reading charts, "You Were Born for This" helps the reader to develop a basic understanding of his or her Sun, Moon, and Ascendant, their aspects, and foundational understanding of the 12 houses of the Zodiac. I've studied astrology for a long time and this book was a very easy listen and a nice review of what I've learned over the years and also offered a fresh perspective.

Don't forget that there is a PDF copy of this book with the Audible download!

Fantastic Astrology Book For Every Level Of Experience

Don’t make the mistake of thinking this is a book for beginners—it isn’t! But beginners will like it, too. I’ve been studying astrology for decades, but this author speaks my language in a way no other author ever has. Thank you so much, Chani Nicholas, for writing this treasure chest of a book. I am sure others will be as delighted by this book as I am!

practical and insightful

it really helped me organize what I had learned so far about astrology, and felt things starting to click in my head. I hope Chani would consider writing on aspects as a sequel to this book
