S9 EP2: Chani Nicholas, Astrologer and Author

Chani Nicholas, astrologer, best-selling author, and founder of the CHANI app joins us to talk about astrology's resurgence through social media, and how she incorporates social justice into her practice.


Astrology is an age-old practice. The concept of charting and studying celestial bodies like planets, and the impact they have on people and how they navigate the world isn’t new. But over the past 10-15 years, the Internet has popularized it as an art form and more people are taking interest than ever before.

Chani Nicholas joins us on The Webby Podcast. She is one of today’s most prominent astrologers, a Webby Award Winner, and a best-selling author. She is also the founder of the CHANI app, which helps downloaders use astrology for radical self-acceptance. There, in addition to guiding the apps’ users on their personal journeys, she’s also building an equitable tech company.

Host David-Michel Davies and Chani spoke about astrology’s resurgence through social media, launching her astrology newsletter and website in the early aughts, incorporating social justice into her practice, and even got into his birth chart.
