“Far too often,” astrologer Chani Nicholas says, “healing is geared towards elevating attributes that are deemed valuable by the status quo.” With a website featuring more than a million regular visitors, Nicholas' ideas and concepts have been and are constantly shaped by LGBTQIA, people of color, feminist writers, artists, thinkers, activists, and community members. Nicholas comes to CHF to share her take on why her writing style and brand of astrology appeals to so many on the front lines of social justice and healing work. Social justice facilitator, healer, and doula adrienne maree brown joins Nicholas in conversation.
Chani Nicholas has been a student of astrology for 30 years and a counseling astrologer for 20. Many of her ideas, philosophies and concepts have been, and are constantly shaped by, the incredible lineages of LGBTQI2S, POC, and feminist writers, artists, thinkers, activists and community members as well as by the extensive wisdom of both ancient and modern astrologers. She aims to make astrology practical, approachable and useful and hopes to use this age-old art form as a vehicle to support the activists, healers and changemakers of the modern world.
adrienne maree brown is the co-editor of Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction from Social Justice Movements and a writer, facilitator, pleasure activist, coach, healer and doula living in Detroit.
