Sixth & I (Virtual)
In Conversation with Fatimah Asghar
- This event has passed.
Your weekly horoscope is merely one crumb of astrology’s cake. The deeper wisdom that astrology has to offer can be a tool for clarity, healing, and bringing dreams into being.
To celebrate the paperback release of her New York Times bestselling debut book You Were Born for This: Astrology for Radical Self-Acceptance, counseling astrologer Chani Nicholas 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. Marrying the historic traditions of astrology with a modern approach, You Were Born for This includes journal prompts, reflection questions, and affirmations personal to your astrological makeup to guide you along the path your chart has laid out for you.
Astrology is not therapy, but it is therapeutic. By radically accepting who you are, you’re better able to heal from your past and realize your potential. 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.
Nicholas, an astrologer for more than 20 years, has been featured in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and on Netflix. In conversation with Fatimah Asghar, a poet, filmmaker, educator, performer, and the writer and co-creator of the Emmy-nominated web series “Brown Girls.”
