With the Sun (Ha) in Taurus and the Moon (Tha) opposite and so full in Scorpio, this is the ideal time to practise Yoga Nidra, allowing you to delve into the depths of the subconscious mind and draw out or shine a light on what you need to be aware of to wake up and transform.
Starting off with gentle stretching with the grounded sun salutation to release tension, nadi Shodana breathing to balance and calm and then lying down for an hour of deep rest and relaxation. With the Sun (Ha) in dreamy Pisces, which governs the subconscious mind, this is the ideal time to practise Yoga Nidra, when life can feel quite dreamy and unreal! The Moon (Tha) starts off in Scorpio, a water sign like Pisces, and is about reaching those deep, darks emotions which, by shining a light on them, allows our emotions, and therefore ourselves, to transform. The Moon then moves into Sagittarius, the spiritual traveller, whether that be physically or inwardly. Then, we come to the Moon in Capricorn and climb the metaphorical mountains to grow and achieve our progress.
A session of Yoga Nidra with a grounded Sun Salutation to stretch and release and Nadi Shodana breathing to balance and prepare.

A Yoga Nidra session can help us to relax, reprogramme our subconscious, tune into ourselves and subtly feel refreshed and positive.
