Astrology curious? Chani Nicholas, they say, is the astrologer to the stars (and the ones Los Angeles too). She has a weekly podcast that offers a global yet somehow specific overview of where the planets are and what that may mean to you on earth.

She's got an edge, a sense of humour, and her advice is grounded in the real world.
Like many, I struggle with a good night's sleep. I have refined my evening schedule over the years as my body, seasons, and surroundings change. I often ask myself, why can't I sleep better? No answer yet, and so the search continues. These days after my evening drink of reishi, ashwagandha, and magnesium, I listen to a rest practice called Yoga Nidra. Thought to be invented as far back as 700 BC, Yoga Nidra is finally becoming popular. A traditional practice includes setting an intention, a body scan, and awareness of thoughts, feelings, and breathing, but more contemporary interpretations by western teachers take a different approach. Regardless of who you choose, they all lead to blissful yogic sleep.
