What are Astro Nidras?

If you love Astrology and love feeling good in your heart and Soul, but sometimes don't know how to get there... You'll LOVE the Astro Nidras!

This is a practice of deep rest, infused with a quantum dialogue with your nervous system and endocrine system to soothe and connect with your ancient, infinite inner genius. All you need to do is lay down, press play, close your eyes & follow along for a journey inward. 


As I deepened my practice of Yoga Nidra, I noticed it was attuning me to a greater cosmic experience with the Unified Field. I quickly realized that with a little bit of guidance, yoga nidra could be used to attune us to the cosmic cycles, or the current astrological weather. This attunement wasn't based off a prediction, but rather, through your own inner voice awakening, clear cosmic communication with you personally.

It dawned on me that I could create practices with just enough guidance to point your awareness to discover and embody the Highest Teachings of the current astrological weather for yourSelf. 

You can always find the most recent one below and I update my Instagram Stories with the best practices to use in the present moment. 


To help integrate this experiences into your waking walking world, try the cosmic walking meditations that follow Mars' journey around the zodiac. This is something you can easily incorporate into your day without having to set aside more time for meditation or mental heath practice. You just choose to use your time walking with more purpose and intention. 

 Scorpio Astro Nidra

purchase the 2019 Scorpio Astro Nidra here

Fixed water ruled by Mars and Pluto, ruler of the Underworld - This Scorpio Season is intense!

This year's practice is a soft and gradual plunge into your emotional body. There is room for choice, both in how deep you go and the emotions you work with in the practice. My suggestion is to contemplate what you want to work with and find the opposite emotion before you go into the practice so you don't have to think at all. However, if you find once you're in a different emotion to work with is revealed, go with it.

The other option for this practice is to stay in the sensation of the pulsation and plunge. You'll see when you get in the practice. I've done it a few times and the pulsation along with the sensations revealed are quite something to explore.

As usual it is available with music and without. The Wong Janice has placed a brand new piece with this practice called Submission. It's stunning.

I hope you enjoy!

 Libra Astro Nidra

purchase the 2019 Libra Astro Nidra here

This Libra Season comes with it one of our first 'breaks' in the astrology for a little while. After eclipses, Saturn Rx and an intense Virgo Season, this renewal that comes with the equinox, the beginning of Autumn and Libra season is asking us to rest deeper into ourselves and restore balance to our lives. That restoration of balance to your life is what this astro nidra focuses upon.

To help you stay deep in the process, feel free to identify an area of your life that could use a little help restoring balance before you go in. Take note of both sides -- where you are over invested and where you are under invested. You'll use this within the practice. OR you can go in trusting that all the information that is needed will be illuminated within the experience. 

You'll receive both a silence version, as well as a version with Jai Chand and JT's collaborative project "Ripples" specifically the track "Ohm" layered in with the practice available. I'm so excited to have them back (you may rememeber their track "Mah" accompanying the Cancer Season Mama Bear practice).

 Mars in Virgo Cosmic Walking Meditation

purchase the Mars in Virgo Cosmic Walking Meditation here

This walking meditation is meant to be used in the morning to get you aligned with your priorities. It involves consciously curating a feeling to carry you through, getting purposeful with your priorities and visualizing yourself making the most of your day. With Mars being in the pragmatic virgo archetype, we even spend a moment addressing potential distractions, including that inner critic, so you have a plan of how to stay on course when it does come up. It ends with you hanging out with your future self, reflecting on a day well lived with great gratitude and motivation to get today going and making it the best day ever.

It's 20 mins, you can listen as you get yourself going for the day, standing in line at the coffee shop or however you want to make it fit with ease.

 Virgo Astro Nidra

purchase the 2019 Virgo Astro Nidra here

Virgo season came in with a bang! Some of you are feeling motivated to get to work while others are feeling very tired, in a state of overwhelm or paralysis. In either case, your nervous system is getting an adjustment, so it's important to LISTEN and honour where you are at. If your body is calling for rest, REST. If you're procrastinating, do some self reflective work to recogized WHY you are procrastinating and address yourself at that level.

It's time to bring the passions highlighted in Leo Season to life through the hard work of the Virgo. 

 

This practice is a return to WHOLENESS with an openness to understand how you can be of Service to the Whole.

The 2019 Virgo Astro Nidra is available in Silence AND with The Wong Janice's Cello. This track is called Serenity and is available exclusively through the Daily Insights on Insight Timer.

 2019 Mercury Rx Astro Nidra

purchase the Mercury Rx Astro Nidra here

This Mercury Rx is the only one of the year that happens in a fire sign, but then true to the year's Mercury Rx theme, it slips back into a water sign, Cancer for completion.

Leo is ruled by the Sun - The King of the Zodiac
Cancer is ruled by the Moon -  The Divine Mother of the Zodiac 

This is a recalibration of the masculine and feminine within. Check out my blog for more. The Astro Nidra runs from July 7th - 31st + the shadow period until August 15th.

 2019 Cancer Season Astro Nidra

"The Mama Bear"

purchase the Cancer Season Astro Nidra here

Cancer is a Cardinal Water sign, ruled by the Moon.

This Cancer Season we have Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto all Retrograde as we begin and then July 7th, Mercury starts their Retrograde Journey.

This is a time of attuning to the unconditional love of the Divine Mother, and tapping into your own Mama Bear energy (men too -- think of it as an archetype, we all have it in us). Use this energy to fiercly protect that which is most precious to you, be it a relationship, a project, you focus of your time, attention and love. While this Mama Bear / Divine Mother energy is moving through us and we use it to refocus our attention, allow everything outside of that float away.

Inside this Astro Nidra, you'll have a chance to feel what needs to be felt, to release what needs to be released and recallibrate to what longs to come alive from deep within your creative waters. Love you Astro Nidra Lovers!

 2019 Gemini Season Astro Nidra

"Connect with Community"

purchase the Gemini Season Astro Nidra here

Gemini is a Mutable Air sign, ruled by the planet Mercury.

Gemini Astro Nidra is to connect with community.

We are made up of community. The community we belong to and also the community of cells internal to us. They estimate that we are made up of somewhere in the ball park of 50 trillion cells, almost half of which are not our body. Our microbiom is in service to our health, or it can break it down. This astro nidra is to help you connect to your inner community and get all your cells on the same mission.

The astrological weather closer to the end of the month also holds the potential for an extraordinary opening to the subconscious mind and your personal connection with Source. Since the body is the container of the subconscious mind, the more time you spend listening to your inner community, they greater your connection with Source energy. 

This practice will continue to open for you as Gemini Season goes on.

 2019 Taurus Season Astro Nidra

"Indulge in your Senses"

purchase the Taurus Season Astro Nidra here

Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign, ruled by the planet Venus.

Taurus rules the 5 senses and with Uranus in Taurus for the next seven years, this officially kicks off the awakening of your senses. 

 

First the Sun conjuncts Uranus, then the moon just before she goes new, then Mercury & Venus make the same transit. 

Thus, in this practice, we indulge in our senses & by doing so, learn to live in a more subtle expression of them. I've often wondered why we call them our Higher Senses, when more accurrately put, they are our Inner Senses. 

 

Allow this Astro Nidra to take you underneath the noise of the mind and into the wisdom of the subtle body.


Enjoy!

 2019 Aries Season Astro Nidra

purchase here

Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign, ruled by the planet Mars

This Aries Season is a little different than the others because we still have three planets in Pisces and Pluto conjunct the south node of the moon. We're being asked to stay in close contact with our intuition and wait for guidance to move forward. You're being asked to release an old outdated belief, inner structure, relationship, safety net, comfort zone... you'll know if you're listening. 

This Aries Season Astro Nidra will help you sort it out and then guide you to believing in yourself and your unique way of being in this world.


Enjoy!

2019 Pisces Season Astro Nidra

purchase here

Pisces is a mutable water sign, ruled by Jupiter in ancient astrology and Neptune in modern astrology.

Pisces is the dreamer, the gateway to the subconsious mind, your portal to the other side. The Tibetans say that if you can wake up inside of your dream, you can awaken in all states. They use Lucid dreaming as a fast track to awakening. Let's use this Pisces Season to refine your ability to remain aware in your dreams.

This year's Pisces astro nidra is the first time I have created a yoga nidra to send you off into sleep space. However, I encourage you to stay with the practice until you hear the cue "The practice of yoga nidra is now complete." After which, I cue you to roll over to your side and drift off into dream land.

The idea behind this Astro Nidra is to teach you how to carry your awareness into dream space so you can develop the skills of lucid dreaming.


Enjoy!

 2019 Aquarius Season Astro Nidra

purchase here

Aquarius is a fixed air sign, ruled by Saturn in ancient astrology and Uranus in modern astrology.

This unconventional sign that doesn't play by the rules is the water bearer, yet it isn't a water sign. Some say that Aquarians are time travelers who come to bring wisdom from other times.


This Aquarius Season has all planets traveling direct. It is electric and slightly chaotic out there, especially since we are coming off an intense eclipse season.


This Astro Nidra will help you ground and gain perspective as we tap into the wisdom of the Aquarius archetype.


Enjoy!

2018 Scorpio Season Astro Nidra

Scorpio is a fixed water sign, ruled by Mars and Pluto.

 

Venus is still retrograde and when she stations direct, Mercury will station retrograde


Scorpio is the time o the Shaman, alchemy, transformation through discomfort. It is a time of the underworld and exploring the shadows. This is the time of overcoming! 

As a water sign, this is a time of year you are really asked to honor and feel your emotions and these emotions are the ones you may have been avoiding.

This Astro Nidra guides us through the directions so we can find center and discover the message that's been hiding beneath the surface..

2018 Libra Season Astro Nidra

purchase here

Libra is a cardinal air sign, ruled by Venus who is going through a retrograde journey.


Libra stands for justice, desires to restore harmony and rules the domain of relationships.

Libra  is political and very diplomatic.

Venus asks us to establish values, know our worth and understand our prosperity comes through love.

This Astro Nidra guides us to that place that is beyond ego, where we can meet in the heart.


It reminds us that we are all connected, that listening to another is to connect to our own heart and gives the tools to help dissolve differences by moving from your Soul.

This one is in silence again. It feels important to have a clear transmission.

2018 Virgo Season Astro Nidra

purchase here

Virgo is a mutable earth sign, ruled by Mercury! This is a time of paying attention to and caring for your mental hygiene. 


Virgo is the virgin, perfection and purity. 

Virgo is a healer, the angelic realm and wholeness.

Virgo is transforming routines into rituals.

Virgo can mean discipline and feels safer within order.

Virgo is a time to cultivate self acceptance, kindness and reverence. Not because it's natural, but because we get to dance with the inner critic while learning a new way to live inside of your nervous system.

Virgos like to know all the details, so I shared a little extra about what is happening inside the practice at the beginning. There is a breath practice near the beginning. A little different than Leo Season's breath.

This Virgo Season Yoga Nidra is with a silent background intentionally as a way to honour the tradition and that purity that is accessible during this sun season.

2018  Leo Season Astro Nidra

to get both silent and with sound in one download click here

Leo is a fixed fire sign, ruled by the Sun connecting us with our Source of Love! We also have the third eclipse of this eclipse series at the new moon.

Leo Season is the time of the Lion's Gate and this year a potent eclipse portal and 6 - 7 retrogrades. Deep, life changing work on the most subtle plane while our communication systems are receiving an upgrade. Listening practices have never been more important as we go inward to connect with our Soul's purpose and as again, who am I? 

Within this practice we reactivate our light bodies, move toward emptiness and dream our greatest dream in alignment with our Soul's purpose into reality.

If you can do this one in a quiet space outside, go for it and really let the light waves enhance the practice! (just be mindful of time of day or over exposure to the sun. I'm doing it in a slightly shaded area where the light is there, but not direct.

to get both silent and with sound in one download click here

Cancer is a cardinal water sign, ruled by the Moon making it a really moony moon! We also have a partial solar eclipse at the new moon.

Cancer Season is the time of the Mother. It's time to heal the Mother wound, connect with the Divine Mother, cultivate self nurturing and self love. In this Yoga Nidra practice, you'll cultivate loving awareness throughout the practice, self acceptance in the opposites as well as emotional independance and courageous intimacy. During the visualizations, you'll connect to the Divine Mother within your maternal lineage. 

 

Because of the depth of this practice, go in with an open heart and a willingness to release some old programs. Try it a few times to appreciate the depth..

 2018 Gemini Season Astro Nidra

to get both silent and with sound in one download click here

Gemini is a mutable air sign, ruled by Mercury meaning that it is a time of the mind and the intellect. Gemini is the twin archetype: The higher mind and the lower mind, the play of polarities in order to rediscover union. It is typically a social time, yet this round there are three retrograde planets and we're gearing up to have six planets Rx by July 4th. Since there are so many retrogrades, you may not feel as social as Gemini season will usually lead you, so we'll activate this social energy inward to gather your luminaries and merge with their wisdom in the visualization portion of the practice.

 

This Yoga Nidra will also help to sharpen you cognative abilities AND practice sustaining the state of yoga nidra for greater amounts of time.  

 

It is recommended to practice this one a number of times as each time, you'll deepen the experience.

There is no astrology to introduce this practice. It starts with getting comfortable. This is how they will be from now on.

2018 Taurus Season Astro Nidra

to get both silent and with sound in one download click here

Taurus Season is about grounding and remembering your worth. The full moon in Scorpio has the medicine of a break through in it. This comes with just enough stress to make sure you're paying attention. Make sure that you take advantage of this time by grounding yourself and getting on the inside of your experience so you can discover what is underneith.

The other significant shift during Taurus Season is the movement of Chiron from Pisces into Aries -- this will cause a significant shift in how your relate to your wounds. Time to turn your pain into passion.

We are also preparing from Uranus to move from Aries into Taurus as the moon returns to new on May 15th. This is a resetting of your nervous system. 

This Nidra addresses all of it. Tune it. Practice it at least once a week and watch how the practice shifts as the planets move.

There is no astrology to introduce this practice. It starts with getting comfortable. This is how they will be from now on.

 2018 Aries Season Astro Nidra

with healing soundscape

in silence

This Yoga Nidra for Aries Season begins by unplugging yourself from everything that is not yours and continues with a practice of returning to your own unique energy signature called your home frequency. In the Quantum studies, they have found that the energy signature of each individual is as unique as your finger print. This home frequency holds the codes to your purpose, your gifts and your inner healer -- yet there are so few practices that guide you right into the center of this Source. This yoga nidra takes you there.

It begins with a 5 minute astrology update for this cycle -- if you would like to skip it and get straight to the nidra, skip ahead until 4:38. This one has silence in the background. The one with sound will be released shortly.

2018 Pisces Season Astro Nidra

click here to get the Pisces Season Astro Nidra.

This Nidra for Pisces Season is a practice of surrender and healing your inner child. This year's Pisces season contains a high likelyhood of being triggered and makes a request that you pull your energy inward to repair and then create. This nidra will support the energies of this time.

This nidra has silence in the back ground rather than a sound scape. I am hoping to hear from you about the experience. As I explore the practice in deeper ways, I am noticing that silence is really nice. In the future, I am considering an option that has sound and another that has silence. Feel free to share you preference with me.

2018 Aquarius Season Astro Nidra

click here to get the Aquarius Season Astro Nidra.

 
Within this session we go visit our future self and make a request to pray for ourself. The concept was inspired by a study Dr. Joe Dispenza shares in his book "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself" 

When I first guided this session, something else came in and guided me. As I was preparing to work on the Aquarius Season Nidra, one of the student of the recent 300 hour YTT in Croatia randomly texted our group to share that she had just done the nidra. I honestly didn't remember guiding it, yet when I went to listen, it was perfect for this time.

 

Once you do the nidra, you'll understand with even more clarity why.

The pay-what-you-want starting at $7 rate will be valid through my website until the end of the current Astrological Season. Afterward, they will still be available for download at $11.

My husband and I just did your yoga nidra. A mere 35 minutes later, I feel like I just attended a weekend healing workshop!

- Andrea, LMFT, CA

What I absolutely love about Jana, and which is without a doubt why her astro nidras are so extraordinary, is the depth of inner work she constantly reaches for in herself on her own path. This is a woman who walks her talk, who is perpetually growing wiser, transmuting and alchemizing with the most nurturing love and attention, every single thing that comes along the way. 

 

With each new layer she discovers in herself, her powerful limbic system makes it not just possible, but easeful, for us to meet her there, to feel the wonder of a new dimension, within the framework of our own bodies, while laying in meditation, perhaps thousands of miles away (as is the case with me). 

 

To be held by her voice and her presence is deeply healing. I recommend these nidras to all of my clients, and especially if you do not have experience with meditation, it's a wonderful place to start.

Antesa Jensen, Founder, Adventure Awake (www.adventureawake.com)

I have done this now morning and night for 3 days and each time I learn and see more in the visualizations. Beautiful voice, gentle guidance. An absolute treasure uncovered!
