The Full Moon is the completion of a cycle and with that traditionally a time to release all that no longer serves your highest good. The light of the Full Moon illuminates everything that is interfering with your spiritual path thus helping you to be enlightened about what is blocking you. Then you are able to let it go, release it completely.
November's Full Moon was called the Beaver Moon by both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes because this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. It was also called the Full Frost Moon by Native Americans.

The Full Moon here in the UK is at 1.52 pm on Monday, 14 November 2016 and will be the closest a Full Moon has been to earth since 26 January 1948. The next time a Full Moon is even closer to Earth will be on 25 November 2034. When a Full Moon coincides with its closest approach to Earth, it is called a Super Full Moon. This term was coined by an astrologer, Richard Nolle in 1979 and is not an official astronomical term.

This Full Moon is in the dependable, loyal and generous sign of Taurus and is all about learning and growing. You will be pushed out of your comfort zone, as long forgotten feelings bubble to the surface and will really push you forward. The rather persistent energy of Taurus will push and push, until you take a good look and integrate those uncomfortable feelings.
You are not quite sure how these feelings have surfaced, but please rest assured they are here so that you can find the lesson, learn it and then let it go. As difficult as it may seem when they surface, the more you learn from them, the more you will be able to release. Think of it as a seminar, where the study subject is YOU!
As this Super Super Full Moon is very intense – it teaches all of us valuable lessons. One of these lessons is Self-Forgiveness. Forgiveness work is very important, as it will heal you and all of your relationships. Guilt is the opposite of Love, and you are feeling guilty in a big way, about everyone and everything. These feelings actually border on self-abuse, as you feel responsible for all sorts of things that are happening and have happened.
There is nothing wrong with making mistakes, everyone is here to learn and grow and without mistakes non of us can learn anything. This Full Moon is about releasing any regrets, guilt, anger, blame and pain that you have been holding onto and beating yourself up about.
Feeling guilty all the time is not helping you or anyone else. Keeping the guilt locked inside of you causes you to actually pass it on to the next generation and with that you start or continue a lineage of shame and oppression. Once you release it and treat yourself with the loving kindness you deserve, you lift this feeling of guilt and shame for yourself and every generation to come and make the world a safer place. This way you re-write your spiritual lineage.
It is also important to take time out from your hectic daily routine and indulge in some much needed self-care during this Super Moon. The best thing to do would be to take a relaxing Moon bath – sitting outside and letting the energies wash away any self-doubt, worries, anger, resentment, regrets, guilt, blame, fear or pain. Feel it being lifted out of you for transformation. Remember, this doesn't have to take long, even if you can manage only a few minutes during a break at work, it's worth it.
This Full Super Moon will also help you re-think any ailments you may have. Even though you may not feel entirely healthy, know that this is an illusion. From a holistic point of view, all diseases start in the mind. We all cause our own blockages by our way of thinking. This is something we are all taught by our families, society and the culture we are born into.
The more you think you are unwell, the more you actually are. Your body is trying to please you and develops symptoms for you to learn and work through. Remember: Your divine self is ageless and eternal. That is the truth. Once you see through the illusion of what society dictates, there is nothing that you cannot overcome.
You are never too old, too young, too anything. You are an eternal soul having a human experience to learn and grow. This Full Moon will really push you out of your comfort zone by helping you burst out of the confines of your way of thinking and start anew. Heal your mind and you will be well. No matter what physical symptoms your body shows, it's for you to learn and grow.
This Full Super Super Moon your greatest strength is being able to understand other peoples motivation and have compassion for their feelings. This doesn't mean that you have to agree with any of it. It means that you understand that we are all here to lean and grow and that some people have a soul contract with you to hurt you badly in this lifetime, so that you can learn what true compassion is.
Never forget, there is a divine spark in everyone! No matter who or what they are in this incarnation, they are a divine child of source, a bright light of love and divine energy. Once you take that on board, integrate it completely, you are able to love yourself and others truly unconditionally.
