Today (November 14) will witness a truly spectacular sight: A supermoon. Not just any full moon in the night sky but one that will shine brighter and appear larger than it has in the last 68 years.
This rare November supermoon is one for the record books, not since January 25, 1948, has a full moon come this close to Earth. And there won't be another one until 2034. So make sure you get out there and bask in all its lunar glory.
So what does the supermoon have in store for you...
Today's supermoon will occur when the sun is in Scorpio and the moon is in its opposite sign of Taurus. These two heavyweights find it difficult to get along, with the intense energy of Scorpio jostling for supremacy against stability-craving Taurus. This clash will produce a burst of energy that you can either embrace or oppose. We suggest you plump for the embrace option, otherwise there could be some serious struggle ahead.
All full moons tend to bring out the emotional side in us but the extreme closeness of this supermoon will end up supercharging our feelings. To be forewarned is to be forearmed - so if you suddenly feel like howling at the moon - or your partner - then we advise you go and take a long hot bath to calm those sudden urges.
With emotions running high this is the ideal time to heal any rifts with family and friends. You'll feel a lightness within yourself and will wonder why you ever fell out with that person in the first place. Make the most of this supermoon and bury the hatchet. Life is too short to bear grudges.
Re-evaluate your goals
This is an opportunity to take stock of where you are in your life and to work towards your goals. You may need to make some minor adjustments to plans, to keep them within grasp. But the practical side of Taurus will help you to make the right decisions.
Word of warning, this is not a time to get ahead of yourself, to let your ego overtake. Its important to stay grounded and to be conscious of how you are presenting yourself to others. Be confident without being arrogant.
Kick back and relax
Taurus is the sign of stability and security so with the moon in this sign it's the perfect opportunity to enjoy home comforts. You'll feel that you won't want to venture too far, preferring to hunker down, stay home and relax. This is the perfect excuse to catch up on that Suits Box Set, Sophie Kinsella novel or cuddle up with your nearest and dearest.
Ditch the bitch
The supermoon urges you to break free from toxic people in your life. The psychic vampires who drain you of energy, the frenemies who smile while stabbing you in the back. Any relationships that are damaging you or holding you back need to be fully re-assessed. Don't be afraid to cut all ties if you find that someone is not worth the time, effort, or stress they cause you.
So by understanding and working with the shift in energy this supermoon brings you should find that life runs that little bit more smoother. Sometimes, it takes something heavenly to make sense of things, to remember that we are all simply passing through.
