On March 6th we welcome a New Moon in Pisces, a watery sign that brings great sensitivity and deeper introspection to our desires. As the last sign of the Zodiac, Pisces represents a sort of completion—what have you learned in the last year that you are ready to let go of and set new intentions for? After Pisces come Aries, the fiery sign of initiation and transformation, the fuel for our hearts desires. This means that right now is the perfect time to craft intentions that you want to see unfold in the next 12 months. In that way, the New Moon is almost like a New Year.
Speaking of New Years, if you already feel like you’re already drifting away from the intention you set for January 1st, now is the perfect time to revisit them. Are they working for you? Have you accomplished any? Do you feel lit up and inspired by them? Sometimes we set huge intentions that we have trouble committing to. Now is the time to get clear and honest about what you really want and what will really inspire you to make the changes you want to make.
Maybe your intention was to bring more health and wellness into your life, get in shape, eat cleaner and more in tune with your bodies needs. If you feel like you’re already falling off the wagon, don’t worry! This New Moon is the perfect moment to revisit and see what worked and what didn’t. If you found resistance, search for ways to feel inspired. Maybe you committed to going to the gym, but what you really wanted was to take dance classes. Or maybe you set intention to do a juice cleanse, but found that actually depleted you and you are craving more nourishing, cooked, whole foods. If something isn’t working, it’s a beautiful time to reflect inwards towards our emotional signals and ask ourselves, “Why isn’t this working and what do I really need to feel inspired?”
As watery signs like Pisces can be a touch emotional as you uncover your hearts true desires, take the time for extra self-care over the next few days. Try taking a long hot bath while scrubbing away your worries with our Amethyst Body Polish. For an extra dose of calm, give yourself a soothing facial massage with our Lapis Facial Oil, which contains Blue Tansy, a magical ingredient that can help to ease inflammation as well as calm the heart center. However you decide to spend this New Moon, we hope that all your intentions and dreams for this new Zodiac cycle come true!
Happy New Moon!
