To mark the start of May, one of our psychics has chosen a different tarot card for each star sign to represent how the month could unfold. We believe Tarotscopes are a simple way to create a life of peace, meaning and prosperity, plus it’s an opportunity for people to learn more about the definitions of tarot decks. Below are all of the cards that are chosen for the month of May 2017.
*All cards pictured in this blog post are from the famous Rider-Waite Tarot Card deck.*
ARIES (March 21st – APRIL 19)
Keywords: Short-sightedness, Imbalance, Gluttence
This month may be one of excess for you Aries. You’ll be living in the now with no clear thought about what consequences it could have for you in the future. It’s fine to throw caution to the wind sometimes but too much can be dangerous and can cause you to be off kilter. Whilst you may be having fun, try to remember that this kind of short-sightedness isn’t very sustainable.
TAURUS (APRIL 20TH- MAY 20TH)
Four of Swords (Reversed)
Keywords: Spent, Agitation, Stagnation
Are you getting agitated about a lack of progress in a particular project you’ve been working on? Try not to get too disheartened. You’ve put so much energy into it already that it’s no wonder you’re feeling a little spent. Instead of feeling like you’re going to give up, take the time to recharge and reenergise. You’ll be back in the driver’s seat in no time and this period of stagnation will pass.
GEMINI (MAY 21ST- JUNE 20TH)
Five of Cups
Keywords: Loss, Regret, Disappointment
You may find yourself reminiscing a lot this month Gemini. However, dwelling on past mistakes or regrets isn’t going to get you anywhere. We all have things in our past that we wish we could take back but there is no erase button. And anyway, our regrets shape us as people and are important for learning and growth.
Take this feeling of loss and disappointment and channel it into something productive. You have the determination inside you.
CANCER (JUNE 21ST- JULY 22ND)
Ten of Swords
Keywords: Betrayal, Defeat, Crisis
Feeling betrayed by a close friend or loved one can send you into crisis mode this month Cancer but stop and think about it rationally. There are two sides to every story and make sure you know the whole truth before you do something you’re going to regret.
A defeatist attitude won’t get you anywhere either this month and is so unlike you. Instead, adopt a positive approach to things. After all, every cloud has a silver lining!
LEO (JULY 23RD- AUGUST 22ND)
Page of Pentacles
Keywords: Financial gain, Career Opportunity, Creation
Oh Leo, things are really happening for you this month. You may have a big career decision on your hands. Try and come to a conclusion by using both your head and your heart. Whatever sacrifice you might have to make will have to be worth it in the long run.
Money isn’t everything but it certainly helps in some situations. There may be a windfall on the horizon but it may come in a rather unexpected way.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23RD- SEPTEMBER 22ND)
The Emperor (Reversed)
Keywords: Domineering, Obstinate, Control
Is someone trying to control you Virgo? You may feel a little under the thumb this month but don’t let anyone take you for a fool. You have your own mind and you’re capable of making your own decisions. Tell them firmly but politely to ease up a little bit – they may not even know they’re doing it.
With that in mind, it’s worth remembering that it doesn’t always pay to be so rigid. Stubbornness for the sake of it isn’t a very good trait to have.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23RD- OCTOBER 22ND)
Keywords: Belief, Tradition, Conformity
This month, you may find yourself wanting to belong. This could manifest itself by enrolling in a night class, joining a gym or finding a new hobby club. Whatever it is, it could help fill that longing that you have inside you for something more. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t become as fulfilled as you expect, it’s an opportunity to take a deeper look inside yourself and see what’s really missing. Maybe it’s love, career or friendship. Whatever it is, now is the time to find out.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23RD- NOVEMBER 21ST)
Seven of Cups
Keywords: Imagination, Choice, Reverie
You may have concocted a fantasy in your head Scorpio about how a certain situation will go but real life doesn’t always play out the way it does in the movies. You can plan what you might do but you can’t rely on other people – they have free will and you must respect that.
Choice is one of the great things about life and you could find yourself with a few decisions to make over the next few weeks. Don’t worry – choice is good, no matter how stressful the decision may be!
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22ND- DECEMBER 21ST)
Keywords: Subjugation, Materialism, Sexuality
Are you in a transitional period of your life Sagittarius? You may be discovering, or rediscovering, yourself sexually which can cause some confusion but things will all make sense soon.
Focusing on the important things in life will ensure you have a smooth month. You’ll soon find that material things are insignificant in the grand scheme of themes. Why be a slave to “stuff?” It’s much more satisfying to focus on relationships.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22ND- JANUARY 19TH)
The Empress (Reversed)
Keywords: Dependency, Lethargy, Lack of Creativity
If you’re feeling a little uninspired this month, don’t worry, it will pass. This lack of energy is only a temporary state and you’ll get your mojo back in no time. Why not spend this time reconnecting with nature. Going for a picnic in the park, a long walk along the river or even a hike. The energy we get from nature can be so invigorating – it’s like nothing else.
You may feel like you’re overly dependent on someone close to you. There’s nothing wrong with it but have faith in yourself – you can stand on your own two feet!
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20TH- FEBRUARY 18TH)
King of Cups
Keywords: Emotional Maturity, Kindness, Control
Whether it’s giving to charity, helping out a friend in need or treating a colleague to lunch, May is the month to show kindness. It’s about going above and beyond. Giving feels good and your kindness could really affect someone’s life.
You’re at a stage in your life where you’re as cool as a cucumber. Keeping your emotions in check can be extremely difficult but it is a sign of emotional maturity. This month, that will be tested but you’ve had enough practice to not let it affect you
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
The Tower (Reversed)
Keywords: Fear of Change, Disaster Aversion
You can sometimes have a habit of getting stuck in your ways Pisces, and you can be reluctant to change course. However, it’s important to step outside of your comfort zone every once in awhile because that’s where the magic happens! You can end up missing out on a lot of opportunities by being a stick in the mud, so try and expand your horizons.
Narrowly avoiding a disaster this month will make you change your priorities – are you really living your best life Pisces?
