Full Moon in Taurus November 2016 - 11/14/2016 5:52:00 AM ~ Pushing the limits

Full Moon in Taurus November 2016

The Full Moon in Taurus on November 14 will be the closest to Earth until 2034. Full Moon in Taurus is a time to celebrate all the senses and earthly pleasures that the earth offers. This Super moon in predictable Taurus opposing the intense Scorpio Sun brings deep emotions close to the surface. With the Moon trine Pluto and sextile Chiron, embracing change aids our healing process. We can find comfort in closure. This Taurus–Scorpio polarity illuminates the inseparability of gain and loss, self-acceptance and intimacy, matter and spirit. This is the third of four Super moons in a row where the Moon is at perigee, its closest approach to the Earth, intensifying its tugs on tides, tectonic plates, and our psyches as well. It asks us to explore our senses; taste, touch, smell and see things totally differently with pleasure. This moon has us slowing down and enjoying things at a slower pace. Things that are started now will last the longest and tend to increase in value. It will also become habitual and hard to alter. Taurus sign is about values, loyalty, creativity, practicality, greedy, materialistic, instant gratification, possessions, money, fertility and Mother Earth

This full moon pushes you to double down on a more selfless path. You will want to express the new you in an eccentric or original way. This is great for your ego and your new goals (Sun) but is going to cause increasing tension within existing relationships and your family (Moon). These changes should be seen as karmic adjustments more than major life changes. If you rebel against the concerns of your loved ones and act with arrogance, then sudden outbursts and rash actions will cause real drama in your life. Pushing yourself to go beyond your own limits to achieve your most deepest and most intense desires.

The Sun is closely quincunx (150°) Uranus, as well as dwarf planets Eris and Ceres in Aries,  prompting us to expand our perception of the feminine and the physical world. Both Scorpio and Aries are ruled by Mars, symbolizing the masculine; the natural quincunx between Aries and Scorpio necessitates progressing from isolation and domination to connection and co-creation.

Shortly after this Full Moon, sensitivity and creativity, intuition and imagination are heightened as Neptune conjoins the South Lunar Node in Pisces on November 17, squares Mercury on November 18, and then stations direct on November 19. Neptune conjunct the South Node urges us to release the shadow side of Pisces, which manifests as victim/martyr roles, codependency, escapism, and addictions of all flavors. Neptune square Mercury fogs our left brain, forcing us to feel, rather than figure out, our next step. When any planet changes direction, its energy intensifies; Neptune turning direct reassures us that we are never alone and can always ask for help from the invisible realms.
