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 regimen, but also the best type of routine based on lunar energy. As the Moon moves from sign to sign, it brings the quality of each constellation into our consciousness. When it’s in Aries, we feel fiery and dynamic, and can show our anger more. When it’s in Taurus, we feel sensual and grounded -- and so on.

So if you're not sure what kind of routine you want to begin, take a cue from the sign that the Moon is in. The first new Moon of the year coincided with New Year's Day. It was an incredibly powerful new Moon in Capricorn. Capricorn 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 -- but go easy on your knees.

The next new Moon takes place on January 30. This lunation is perfect 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. If there’s an indoor pool (or outdoor, if you live in a warmer climate) get in touch with your inner fish!

Going forward through 2014, the new Moon in Aries (March 30) offers an opportunity to try kickboxing or to get out your anger via a punching bag at the gym. The new Moon in Taurus (April 29 – note this is also an INTENSE solar eclipse) is ideal for revisiting your weight loss goals from early in the year. This new Moon is all about sensual indulgence, so you can learn to eat healthfully without denying yourself pleasure. Stay grounded!

The new Moon in Gemini (May 28) can teach you how to truly breathe, as Gemini rules the lungs. This would be the time to start a pranayama yoga class. It also rules the arms, so you can focus your weight-training regimen on this part of your body.

Stay tuned for exercise routines for the second half of 2014 -- coming in the spring!
