Well I may have caught your attention with the title here, especially the Steely Dan fans among us. I have been rather mum about what I have been dealing with for the past year, only a few in my circle have known.
This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it's good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people.
How you can work with this particular Eclipse is to be aware of how you feel about your self-worth. Do you love and respect yourself? Are there old values or beliefs that hold you back? Are there gifts you do not express out of fear or insecurity of expressing them?
On May 8-9th, we will have the strongest influx of Taurus energy the entire month with the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury and Mars all in Taurus. The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon is Taurus 20: Wind clouds and haste.
This energy will push you toward some serious thinking. You may find yourself asking what your truth and purpose really are or you may be concerned about how to provide for your very basic, essential needs and why you have been constantly limited in that way.
May is a month dedicated to the Divine Mother and also our human mothers. It is also the fest of Beltane which celebrates fertility and new life. My own Jupiter in Taurus always relishes in these energies.
This energy is a push-pull between who you are & who you want to be; between what you "want" to do & what you "have" to do. I always tell people, do what you "gotta do" so you can do what you "wanna do".
