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 tell you about your month, 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 2016.
*All cards pictured in this blog post are from the famous Rider-Waite Tarot Card deck.*
ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Wheel of Fortune (reversed)
Luck is not on your side this month, Aries. Life may have taken a dramatic turn and you’re unlikely to be feeling positive about the changes. The Wheel of Fortune reversed could indicate that negative forces are at play and out of your control. Is someone trying to sabotage your love life? Perhaps someone at work is taking credit for something you’ve done? You can’t change the behaviour of others but you can change how you respond to it. Think carefully about your own actions and, while you don’t want to come across as a pushover, avoid fighting fire with fire.
TAURUS (APRIL 20TH- MAY 20TH)
Keywords: Fear of confrontation, deceit
As much as you’d like to believe them, you know someone closest to you is being dishonest. This puts you in a difficult situation as you’re keen to get to the bottom of the situation without embarrassing your friend or damaging your relationship.
You tend to avoid conflict and while this can be a great way of avoiding confrontation or arguments, it will do nothing for your own wellbeing. Bottling things up simply isn’t healthy. Politely address your concerns with the person in question and you may uncover the truth once and for all.
GEMINI (MAY 21ST- JUNE 20TH)
Keywords: Dishonesty, avoidance
When reversed, the Justice card could indicate dishonesty within your circle of friends. However, it could also suggest you’re being dishonest with yourself. Why are you avoiding the truth, Gemini? Face your problems head on and stop denying they exist. You may be trying to place the blame on someone else but deep down you know your own actions are responsible.
Remember, while some things are out of your control, you life is predominantly ruled by your own actions and behaviour.
CANCER (JUNE 21ST- JULY 22ND)
Keywords: Perfection, harmony, trust.
Could romance be on the horizon, Cancer? If you’re single, you may meet someone who you have an instant connection with. Every conversation will be effortless and you’ll feel like you’ve known each other for years.
Those in a relationship may feel their bond strengthening this month. There’s far more to your connection than simply lust and desire. This is an intimate partnership that cannot easily be broken by outside forces.
LEO (JULY 23RD- AUGUST 22ND)
Keywords: Foolishness, naivety, lack of responsibility.
Have you been acting up lately, Leo? When reversed, the Fool suggests you may have been behaving in a reckless way, paying little attention to the consequences of your actions. You’re trying to make the most of the present but showing a complete disregard for the future and the lives of those around you.
Perhaps you’re on a voyage of self discovery and experimentation. This in itself isn’t a bad thing, but it’s important to keep your feet on the ground and maintain some balance. It’s time to demonstrate some responsibility.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23RD- SEPTEMBER 22ND)
Keywords: Confusion, chaos, indecision.
It’s time to clear your mind, Virgo. You’re suffering from a lack of clarity and no matter how hard you try, you can’t decide what you want from life. Rather than forcing yourself to contemplate the future, take some time to focus on what matters to you in the present. Rest, exercise, eat well, spend time with people whose company you enjoy. Once you give your mind a break you’ll find it easier to focus on life’s important decisions.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23RD- OCTOBER 22ND)
Keywords: Imbalance, control, authority
Although you have good intentions, you sometimes have a tendency to be a little too controlling. You like to be in a position of authority but sometimes you mistake this for a longing to care for others. There’s nothing wrong with knowing what you want or being the leader of the pack, but be sure to give other people chance to speak up and breathe freely.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23RD- NOVEMBER 21ST)
Keywords: Illusion, anxiety, insecurity
Worrying is a dangerous habit, Scorpio. Sometimes you can spend so much time worrying, you end up living a potential situation a thousand times in your mind before you’ve given yourself chance to live it in reality. The Moon suggests you’re projecting your fears into your future and seriously hindering your happiness.
It’s time to release your demons and open up about what’s troubling you. Confide in a close friend and don’t be afraid to cry on their shoulder if necessary. By digging up your anxieties and letting go of the memories that are haunting you, you can work towards starting afresh.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22ND- DECEMBER 21ST)
Keywords: Entrapment, Potential, Desire
You’re feeling trapped at the moment, Sagittarius. Whether you’re trapped by debt, an unhealthy relationship, toxic workplace, or a negative habit, you feel as though life is spiralling out of control. Don’t give up just yet. You have an unstoppable power deep within you that grows and grows every time you’re faced with a problem. You can overcome any obstacle. You’re a force to be reckoned with. Give your life an overhaul and eliminate all the components that allow negativity to fester.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22ND- JANUARY 19TH)
Keywords: Creativity, optimism, positive news.
You’ve struck lucky with this card, Capricorn. The Page of Cups tends to signify the beginning of a creative project or venture. A river of creative energy is building up inside you and it’s just waiting to be released. Whether you consider yourself to be an artist or not, it’s time to find an outlet for this creativity. Pick up a paintbrush, start a blog, or simply cook something no one has cooked before.
The Page of Cups could also signal that positive news from loved ones is to come. Could a new baby be on the way?
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20TH- FEBRUARY 18TH)
Keywords: New beginnings, transformation, reinvention.
Death is understandably the most feared card in the whole Tarot deck. But while its appearance may have you quaking in your boots, it’s important not to take it too literally. Often, the Death card signifies new beginnings just as much as it signifies endings. After all, when one door closes, another one opens. It’s time to put the past behind you and embrace something new with open arms.
This card signifies the need for a transformation. You may wish for a physical transformation such as a different haircut or new outfit, but a spiritual or psychological transformation may be more effective. Is it time to adopt a new, more positive outlook on life?
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Keywords: Suspension, restriction, letting go.
If you’re on the verge of making a big decision, this card could signal that it’s time to postpone your plans for a later date. Don’t make any cancellations, but rather put things on the back burner. Imagine the month of May as one long game of chess. There’s no point rushing into anything. Rather than throwing caution to the wind and making bold movements, take your time and plan ahead. By being smart and weighing up all your possibilities, you may reap greater results
