Ignoring urgent issues in the real world is not a smart idea, yet we often slip into denial as a coping mechanism. However, we can't overlook the unmistakable truth when the Full Super Moon in practical Taurus on November 14, 2016, makes us aware of where our feelings are in conflict with reality. Taurus is associated with the simplicity of direct perceptions -- what you see is what you get -- and Full Moons represent the culmination of an emotional cycle. This Full Moon in earthy Taurus reveals our need to get back to basics.
The Taurus Full Moon opposes the powerful Scorpio Sun that shines in the most mysterious and complicated sign of the zodiac. This tug-of-war between the Sun and the Moon proclaims the tension between Scorpio's irrational passion and Taurus' sensible behavior. Thankfully, Chiron, the Wounded Healer, forms harmonious aspects to the Sun and the Moon, offering us a remedial path to heal our individual and social trauma. Chiron's message is one of forgiveness and, of course, we know that forgiveness begins with ourselves. It's not an easy road we are on. However, the determined Taurus Full Moon reminds us that we can accomplish miracles through hard work and persistence. Sometimes the best magic comes from that which is most obvious.
