Full Supermoon November 14, 2016 - Dealing With All That Bull

Monday's full Supermoon will be huge at 14% bigger and 30% brighter than others, due to its being the closest to Earth than at any time since 1948! And, like the girl on the swing in the picture above, we'll all be see-sawing back and forth in the wind for a little while longer, it seems. As eventful as this past week was, fasten your seatbelt because we've got some karmic drama yet to play out in our lives, and the lives of the rest of the souls on this planet.

The Full Supermoon will enter the sign of Taurus at its rise on November 14, at 5:51 am PST. Taurus, the Bull, is the sign of all things steady and practical, but it's also the harbinger of illumination. The past couple of weeks have been extremely fractious and emotional, but that will change and you'll feel a calmness and grounding with this full Supermoon, and you'll be able to see with a newfound clarity. That's the good news.

Due to several planetary aspects, this calm feeling you experience on the full Supermoon will soon dissipate. Mars entered Aquarius on November 9, and you might have felt that shift as it left methodical Capricorn, the sign of discipline and organization. The take-away from Mars in Capricorn is how you can improve your life if you follow through on the plans and/or goals set during the time of the New Moon. Aquarius supports unique, unconventional, free expression. Mars in Aquarius will propel awareness into a distinct turn toward the future.

As we've mentioned before, the past 18 months have been very distressing and disrupting because of the Saturn/Neptune square. These two planets have been wreaking havoc, stirring up illusion and controversy, as well as uncovering subterfuge and hidden agendas. For all the noise of people vying for attention and proclaiming truth, the truth still remains elusive until around mid-November, when Neptune enters a direct phase and Saturn transits into new territory around the time of the New Moon.  This full Supermoon comes as a reminder to think about our self-worth and security. It may also bring up issues with finances that need to be dealt with. If you have a poor relationship with money, this Moon's energy may be the perfect time to think about mending your relationship and start thinking more abundantly.

But then there's Saturn and that may mean that are great obstacles to be climbed. Dreams may be especially vivid, perhaps even prophetic. You may want to keep a record of your dreams in a journal for the next few weeks, to see if you can discern a pattern that might clue you in as to what you need to work on. Performing or taking part in a ritual to banish phobias and paranoia would be a good idea. If this full Supermoon triggers a deep melancholy or depression, it may be your intuition sensing future catastrophic events affecting a large portion of the population.
