New Moons usher in beginnings. They provide us with an opportunity to declare a new chapter and fresh start in various realms of our lives, including our health. Each new Moon emphasizes the themes related to the sign in which it occurs. By addressing different realms of well-being during each of the year’s new Moons, we can create a holistic and ongoing self-care approach -- one that’s in sync with the celestial cycles—which can enhance our vitality and promote our stellar wellness.

Pisces inspires the qualities of empathy, inspiration and love. As a time of heightened sensitivity, this new Moon offers a great opportunity to access insights into the subtleties of our well-being, perhaps allowing us to get a feeling for what it is that's really depleting our vitality (whether a physical or emotional or energetic factor) and/or intuitively sensing just what we need to feel our very best.

Given Pisces is a Water sign, healing therapies that involve this liquid elixir --whether watsu, hydrotherapy, or salt baths -- may be just what the proverbial doctor ordered for enhancing well-being. As Pisces is the sign of compassion, embracing yourself with love and forgiveness can be a sure-fire way to relieve stress. Pisces is nothing if not holistic; as such it's a great time to explore healing methods that not only take the body, mind and spirit into consideration, but also revere their connection. Meditation, prayer, reiki and creative work are also prime healing pursuits during Piscean times.

The sign of Pisces is associated with the feet, immune and lymphatic systems, pineal gland and sleep. As such, these are great arenas to focus upon during this new Moon. (This year's Pisces new Moon occurs on February 28 at 12:59 pm PST.)

Treat Your Feet

Like Pisces, the feet are said to represent the whole, the sole being the map of the entire body, with different parts aligning with distinct organs. This is the basis for reflexology, the style of massage that focuses on different reflex points in the foot, not only to relax them but to help inspire the flow of energy in the areas of the body with which they accord. Another way of treating your feet is to get a pedicure. Not only does your feet looking good make you feel good but with the filing, cuticle grooming, heel sloughing and massage that a pedicure includes, it's a great way to keep your tootsies in tip-top shape.

Immune System
Pisces is all accepting, non-discriminating, and boundless. As it also governs the immune and lymphatic system, this Pisces new Moon time is prime for paying attention to these instrumental arenas of the body, so as to engage a level of defense against bacteria, viruses, et al so that they don't get a stronghold. Fortify your physical shield by enjoying a rainbow's hue of different vegetables containing immune-boosting phytonutrients. Elderberry, vitamin C, and zinc lozenges may make great additions to health-promoting medicine cabinet. Lymphatic drainage massage, which features soft touch, as well as gentle exercise, encourages the flow of lymph throughout the body.

Sleep Well
During Pisces season, we may be more enchanted with our unconscious and dream states. It's a great time to bolster sleep hygiene so that we can benefit from getting a full night's rest, something that many people have challenges with, and yet something so instrumental to our well-being. Making the room as dark as possible may help, as may removing LCD alarm clocks and computers from your sleep sanctuary. Not being on an electronic device for an hour or two before sleep may help to calm the mind and nervous system. Relaxing essential oils -- such as lavender, chamomile and jatamansi -- may also help you more readily journey to the land of Nod.
