Why is astrology having such a moment? The business of astrology — estimated to be worth more than $2 billion — is booming: apps, classes, conferences, startups. All being fueled by the social media age. This week Audie looks to the heavens with two world-renowned astrologers, Jennifer Freed and Chani Nicholas. They explore astrology’s popularity as well as the meaning and history of this ancient personality system. (Oh, and they read Audie her chart.) Jennifer Freed Ph.D. is a psychological astrologer and author of ten books, including: Use Your Planets Wisely and A Map To Your Soul: Using the Astrology of Fire, Earth, Air, and Water to Live Deeply and Fully She has served as the clinical director of Pacifica Graduate Institute and is national consultant for EMDR (Post Traumatic Growth Therapies). She is a regular contributor to goop. Chani Nicholas is an astrologer and author of You Were Born for This: Astrology for Radical Self-Acceptance. She’s been a counseling astrologer for more than twenty years and is the proprietor of the wildly popular CHANI app, which offers users a personalized, daily understanding of their birth chart. Special thanks this week to the fantastic TikTokers we featured: @tobiasthoth, @jkitscole, and the hilarious @mamaa.arii And I think that that’s a reductive and stereotypical picture of something that has so much substance and depth. But I also don’t mind woo, woo. Why not woo woo? The rational stuff hasn’t taken us very far. We are in an incredible time of suffering.

So I think it’s time to get a little more woo woo.

00:08:50 Jennifer Freed And I think astrology also is radical in that it turns the power back to the people. It’s not mediated through the priest. In every single ancient church in Europe, there are zodiac symbols everywhere. It wasn’t until men said, You must go through me not direct knowing of the cosmos that astrology was banned and made for witches and insane people.

00:09:47 Jennifer Freed Yes, I think the most important things in life and Einstein talked about this too, is being interested in the uncertainty and the mystery. And having the humility to know we don’t know. But there are signs and symbols in this animated cosmos that we’re part of. We’re not dominant over this nature and this beautiful celestial sky. We’re part of it. So I see it as a divine partnership. headtopics.com
