March brings us a new Moon in Pisces, the mystical water sign of dreams and intuition. As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces encourages us to rest and retreat before starting a new cycle. With this new Moon, we have a chance to envision our future before it happens, influencing our reality with our hopes and dreams. Maximize the power of this new Moon by setting intentions around love, work, money and more. Intentions focus our awareness and help us to get clear on what we really want out of life. The more we can get to the heart of our goals, the greater our chance for fulfillment.
The element (Air, Fire, Water, Earth) of your Sun sign can help you to enhance the energy of your intentions and give you ideas about what form they should take. Try to work with your intentions as close to the actual time of the new Moon as possible (March 4, 2011 at 12:46pm PST/3:46pm EST).
Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
You will reap the most benefit from this new Moon if you find a way to communicate your intentions. The element of Air thrives on words, the mind and conversation. Write a list of your hopes and dreams and put it in a special place, or read aloud to yourself in the mirror, or share with a friend. The more energy you build around your spoken and written intentions, the greater power they will have at the new Moon.
Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Action is how you connect to your inner power, so turn your new Moon intention into a form of creative self-expression. Turn up the music and dance your intention, focus on it while you workout, turn it into an art piece, etc. As long as you bring movement and energy to the intentions you hold, they will have a greater momentum.
Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
You are already innately in harmony with this new Moon, since it falls in the Water sign of Pisces. Water signs have the power to feel and imagine, so use this to your advantage wisely. Set aside some time to daydream and let your mind drift, allowing your intention to emerge from your deepest self. Music, nature and time spent near the water will help to inspire you even more, so try and integrate these elements into your life now as much as possible.
Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
As the doers of the zodiac, you’ll feel the most comfortable setting your intentions in a practical way. Incorporate your new Moon dreams into your daily chores for a truly earthy magical moment. While you cook or clean, meditate on what you are hoping to manifest at this new Moon cycle. Though you may feel a little silly at first, infusing your mundane life with a little fairy dust will help you to stay inspired and alive.
