We Were Born For This with Chani Nicholas

Update: 2020-01-246


Astrologer Chani Nicholas joins Alicia and Ai-jen to discuss the intersection of social justice and the stars. They discuss her New York Times-bestselling book, “You Were Born For This,” and what the planets say about this year. She also clarifies the aspects of astrology that people often misunderstand (hint: the stars and planets can guide you, but they can’t do the work for you). Plus: Overcoming self-doubt, finding your true purpose, guilty fashion pleasures, and Chani’s passion for pie.

Hi! I am a nanny in New York and a member of NDWA. I once was very active in organising nannies.. in recent times..I've been dealing with so of which is still trying to process my mom's death...dealing with so many feelings and ultimately feeling so so lost and unsure of myself. My current employer is one of the executive producers of this podcast and she has been encouraging me to listen and I am so glad that I did! This podcast and in particular this moved me.. I was on my way to work listening and the tears came down my face....listening to you all, about finding your purpose, finding your lane...about how your entire body experiences life..about the journey to finding and connecting with one's self through the work and writing...just really fortified my entire being....and so...I am ready once again to jump back in to organising domestic workers and walking confidently into my power! I am grateful to everyone involved in creating this amazing podcast and I look forward to more episodes. Much light and love to everyone, truly the sun in the storm!
