Whether you're a fitness fanatic or haven't gotten off your couch in years, the Moon can help you figure out not just when to begin a new exercise regimen, but also the best type of routine for each lunar period -- all based on the Moon's energy!
As the Moon moves through the zodiac, it brings the quality of each sign into your consciousness. For example, when the glowing orb is in Aries, you're bound to feel fiery and dynamic; when it's in Taurus, you're likely to feel sensual and grounded. If you're unsure what kind of exercise routine to pursue, simply take a cue from the sign in which the Moon currently resides.
In 2014, the first new Moon coincided with New Year's Day -- an incredibly powerful new Moon in Capricorn. Capricorn's energy is excellent for no-nonsense, practical routines, and because it rules the bones, a high-impact aerobic workout is a terrific choice. It's also wonderful for weight training ... just be sure to go easy on your knees.

The next new Moon takes place on January 30. This lunation is ideal for doing something totally inventive and even shocking -- a series of stripper-pole classes, perhaps? The following new Moon (in Pisces on March 1) is ideal for dancing because Pisces rules the feet; ballet barre classes fit Piscean parameters best. Swimming is also wonderful for this Water sign, so if you have access to a pool, perhaps it's time to get in touch with your inner Fish!
Further into 2014, the new Moon in Aries (March 30) offers an opportunity to try kick boxing or release aggression by simply beating the daylights out of a punching bag. One month later, the new Moon in Taurus (April 29 -- also the date of an intense solar eclipse) is a good time to revisit your weight-loss goals from earlier in the year. This new Moon is all about sensual indulgence, so remain balanced by eating healthfully without denying yourself pleasure.

The new Moon in Gemini (May 28) is a time to learn how to breathe best, as Gemini rules the lungs; perhaps consider a pranayama yoga class. This new Moon also rules the arms, so focus any weight-training at this time on this part of your body.
