There is nothing more nourishing than a Full Moon in a water sign—as is the case this month, with the Full Moon in Pisces. It’s great for gardening, deep cleansing (the skin or kitchen floors), dying hair or fabric (the color soaks in more deeply), and healing (the cells of the body absorb healing potions more readily).
But if you’re tired and feeling a bit off balance, a water Full Moon can sometimes increase your emotional or energetic confusion. Bodies can bloat with water retention. Retained water or energy can make us feel stuffed and lethargic. If you find yourself in this condition, the best remedy may be more water—in this case, the gift of water mixed with Epsom salts. A natural anti-inflammatory, Epsom salts have a seemingly magical ability to draw toxins, cellular waste, and excess water out of the body. This can actually reduce your thighs, arms and waist!
A couple years ago, Dr. Oz demonstrated this with a willing audience member. Her measurements were taken before and after the bath. She lost inches! The bath water should be just below body temperature—between 97 and 98 degrees. Use two cups of the salt. Ten minutes in the bath is all you need. A perfect amount of time to close your eyes and contemplate the inner Full Moon.
Locate yourself in time! The Pisces Full Moon may or may not raise issues. But your transits and progressions always do. Don’t know what’s going on in your heavens?
