Chani Nicholas: Astrology is a Tool for Liberation | LGBTQ&A with Jeffrey Masters

Chani Nicholas talks about astrology as a way to guide and invoke a sense of awe in our lives. She discusses activism as a way of healing, looking at Donald Trump’s astrology charts, and the toxic mixture that privilege and comfort can create. Chani also talks about meeting her wife and says that for the first time in her life, she finally has a support system.

ABOUT LGBTQ&A with Jeffrey Masters:

LGBTQ&A with Jeffrey Masters documents the stories of the LGBTQ community — all races, genders, sexualities, and everyone in between. LGBTQ&A is hosted by Jeffrey Masters and produced by AfterBuzz TV. Interviews are also filmed and available on YouTube.

AfterBuzz TV (Los Angeles, CA) is an online broadcast created by E! Host, Maria Menounos and producer, Keven Undergaro, and has over 23 million weekly downloads in over 150 countries. Nicknamed “the aftershow network”, when viewers finish watching episodes of their favorite shows, they can go to to watch or listen to a post-game after-show where hosts break down that night’s episode and interview cast and crew. The network produces over 90 aftershows per week.


Chani Nicholas believes that what makes us different informs our humanity and that our humanity is our greatest asset. She believes that what we have survived can eventually help us to thrive, and that we all have within us the wisdom that we need at any and every moment. She offers what she know in hopes that it stimulates and awakens others’ ability to access their own wisdom and healing.

Chani Nicholas has been a student of astrology since she was 12 years old and a counseling astrologer for almost 20 years. Many of her ideas, philosophies, and concepts have been and are constantly shaped by LGBTQI2S, POC, feminist writers, artists, thinkers, activists and community members as well as by my many brilliant colleagues and folks that she works with both in individual readings and group settings. She aims to make astrology practical, approachable and useful. Otherwise it’s all just cosmic hot air and planets far from reach.
