Chani recommends purchasing Guidebooks and Workshop for your rising sign, primarily because your rising sign determines which areas of your life the upcoming astrology will impact. The predictive nature of horoscopes is due to how we track certain transiting planets as they relate to your chart’s houses, which is determined by your rising sign in the Whole Sign Houses system (the house system we use).
This does not mean that your Sun sign isn’t important. Getting a reading for your Sun sign will tell you how the astrology will affect your Sun (i.e., your life energy, personality, and way of being in the world). Both your Sun and your rising signs are important, but ultimately, it’s up to you — and if you can’t decide, you can always purchase both.
Note: All premium app subscribers have access to the Year Ahead in the CHANI app and therefore do not need to purchase it on our website. Our Guidebooks, on the other hand, are sold separately and are not available in the app — though they’re designed to complement each other.
