HarperNonFiction will publish an astrology journal "will teach readers how to harness the energy of the universe in the year 2020” from Soho House’s resident astrologer Carolyne Faulkner.
Lydia Good, commissioning editor at the division, acquired world all language rights for Your Stars: An Empowering Guide for 2020 from Adam Gauntlett at Peters Fraser + Dunlop. The book will publish in hardback on 5th September 2019.
Billed by the publisher as "a daily astrology journal that will teach readers how to harness the energy of the universe in the year 2020”, the journal features goals, coaching, daily reflections and provides "powerful tool for the changing tides of daily life".
Faulkner is the resident astrologer for the Soho House Group with more than 200 clients, and a monthly columnist for Tatler, described by HarperCollins as "a leading voice in this space, working to make astrology both accessible and applicable to modern life".
The synopsis reads: "Your Stars will be beautifully written and full of down-to-earth analysis of how we can use knowledge of our astrological star signs to empower our decision-making, relationships, and ambitions. This daily astrology journal will teach us how to embrace the shifts caused by the movements of the planets as we move through 2020, teaching how to avoid negative outcomes, and focusing on amplifying positive behaviours."
Faulkner said: "I believe that our thirst for authenticity and deeper meaning has resulted in a global spiritual movement; one that has reopened the sacred systems of our ancestors, and inspired us to reach for our own stars and beyond. The language of the stars is incredibly powerful, and I am merely the translator."
Good addedl: "Astrology has well and truly gone mainstream and Carolyne is the dream author bringing it down to earth – an absolute expert, unrivalled in her knowledge, incredibly hardworking, and with a genuine passion for helping, guiding and empowering others.”
She described the book as “a brilliant companion and tool for astrology enthusiasts and novices alike”.
