Here are the Tarot-Scopes by Sun Sign for the month of May. For this feature, I am using traditional Western Sun signs of the zodiac, but if you’re curious what your Vedic Astrology Sun sign is, check out the Vedic Astrology Sun Signs page and compare.
If your Vedic Sun sign is different than your traditional Western sign, you might even see how both of the energies listed below could apply to you – or perhaps one may be more prominent for you than the other.
For this month’s featured Tarot-Scopes, we have a marriage of traditional tarot AND the Psycards.
So why the Psycards with Tarot? One reason is because of a heightened interest in the Psycards oracle. I’ve received a lot of reading requests recently at Enchanted Oracles for readings with the Psycards deck.
And I wanted to show you how enlightening it can be to blend other oracles of interest with the Tarot cards. So . . . let’s get started and see what’s up for each of the signs this month.
ARIES: Queen of Pentacles / The Tower
Your focus this month is on the home front, Aries. Family and home life may be especially important at this time, as you find yourself nurturing and caring for the people you love.
If you typically get out and about quite a bit, life may slow down somewhat for you – yet this is a good thing and not a bad thing. You may be spending more time on taking care of the home – perhaps even doing some decorating, remodeling, rearranging . . . or spring cleaning!
It’s a time to focus on the practical things in your world. Take care of the things around you and the people that you love. The focus is on abundance that comes through home and family life. No need to rush around – but just enjoy the chance to take the slow and steady route for whatever you are working on. Slow and steady wins the race – and it allows your foundations to be more stable.
TAURUS: Reversed 8 of Swords / The Warrior
A difficult issue will find a solution this month, Taurus. And this happens through bringing out the warrior within you. You can finally start making firm choices that help you get “unstuck” from a rut you’ve been in.
The warrior within you lets your confidence shine. It allows you to make decisions that have probably been hard ones you previously struggled with.
Now you realize that you are NOT as helpless or as trapped as it may have seemed. You are taking off the “blinders” and seeing the light. Things are improving so that you will find better conditions and arrangement after what has felt like a long time of struggle and frustration.
GEMINI: Reversed Queen of Wands / Skills
You may find a need to brush up on some skills this month, Gemini. Perhaps you’ve gotten a bit rusty. And trying to go back into something with the same grace and style as you once had can be frustrating. So it’s time to oil those squeaky hinges and reopen the talents that exist within you.
You may be wobbly at first, but that’s okay. Whatever you did well in the past, you can do it well once again. No need to blame yourself or anyone/anything else for not having used certain skills or talents for a while. Whatever the reasons that you stopped, it seems it’s time to start again!
The Skills card alerts you to your strengths and experiences, and it can also point to where you lack them, too. Recognizing your own weaknesses can be a key step to work through a difficult dynamic. Consider this an opportunity and a challenge at the same time – it’s an opportunity to sharpen a quiver that may have become blunt over time.
CANCER: The Empress / The Tree
What seeds are taking root in your life, Cancer? It looks to be a fertile time for you to plant seeds this month – for whatever you want to grow abundantly! It’s a great time to seek that new job, a new relationship, or reconnect to family and existing friendships and relationships.
The Empress and the Tree are offering you the “go for it” sign to engage in the things that can turn out to be very productive for you. But remember, just as a tree does not grow and bloom overnight, you will need to develop enough patience to appreciate your progress that comes through small steps taken daily.
Establish solid foundations underneath your ventures, Cancer! What is rooted in a strong foundation has the greatest potential to fully grow and blossom into what you wish to manifest. So apply yourself well this month, and know that with patience and effort . . . you’ll finally get to see some growing rewards!
LEO: 6 of Cups / The Sage
An old friend could offer you some wise advice that’s worth listening to, Leo. This could be someone of your past that you’ve not seen or connected with in a while, or it can simply be someone you have known for a very long time, even if you still see them regularly.
Draw on the gift of knowledge that others are willingly ready to share with you at this time. You might also be on the other side of this coin where it is you who can offer sage advice to someone who needs to hear your wisdom.
Knowledge is power, so use it with care. And remember that we are never too old to learn new things. Life presents daily opportunities for all of us to learn something we didn’t know yesterday. See what new things you can learn this month – and next month, you’ll be all the wise for these experiences.
VIRGO: The Hermit / Friendship
This month, you may see a need to balance your time between “alone time” and the time you spend with friends, Virgo. Both are important, but too much of either is not emotionally healthy. Too much time alone can cause you to feel cut off and isolated, while not enough time for yourself can cause you to miss the wisdom of messages that can only arrive in quieter moments of time.
Your friends may offer you some well-intentioned advice, Virgo, but it’s also up to you to decide on your own truths. What do you really believe about a situation, and why do you feel this way? The best wisdom you can ever have will come through your own experiences in life.
So point your lantern on the truth – as you see it. Listen to the advice and information of others. But at the end of the day, you must form your own conclusions. When this month is done, you’re bound to know something that you didn’t know previously!
LIBRA: King of Wands / Voyage
It’s quite possible that you will be taking a trip of some sort this month, Libra. Whether it’s just a short trip or a longer voyage will depend on your circumstances. But this journey – whatever it entails – seems to be something that will interest you and, in some way, broaden your horizons.
The energy for you is action-oriented. It’s about setting your ships to sail so that you can reap the rewards when they are ready to be returned to you.
This journey might also imply a “journey of the heart or mind” instead of a physical trip or voyage. Whatever the case may be, it’s all about reaching out enthusiastically. It’s a “go for it” kind of energy that lets you take action on your goals. Wherever this journey may be leading you, Libra, enjoy it just as much as the actual destination. It’s often the journey itself that brings you the most valuable knowledge and experience.
SCORPIO: 9 of Pentacles / Yes
Scorpio, you are getting a big YES for something you’ve been thinking about lately. Life may hand you a nice gift this month – something that is abundant or profitable on some level. It could present a new opportunity for your consideration. And if you feel inclined to accept, the cards are certainly in your favor to do that!
Whatever it is that you need to go for will depend on the situation at hand. With the Nine of Pentacles here, it may relate to material assets or ways in which you earn money. It can point to the seeking of a new job, or even the acceptance of a job offer. It can even point to letting yourself spend some of your hard-earned money on a luxury that you’ve had your eye on for a while.
Yes, Libra – go for it! Whatever “it” happens to be for you, the cards are cheering you toward that goal.
SAGITTARIUS: 5 of Swords / The Beast
Ah, Sagittarius . . . it looks like there are going to be some significant challenges for you to deal with this month. And those very challenges may bring out the beast within you – or within someone else! Something may seem to block your progress at this time.
You may find that you must fight that inner dragon of your own soul in order to progress forward. It’s time to call upon your courage to confront what stands in your way at this time. It’s time to face your fears.
In order to face this, you must first recognize what the fear is for you. Understand how this fear hinders your progress. Are you afraid of something going wrong . . . or perhaps you are literally afraid of success? Identify the fear within you. And know that one of the best ways to conquer fear is to feed it knowledge! When you understand something, you naturally become less fearful about it all.
CAPRICORN: The Tower / The Sun
An upheaval may bring great enlightenment for you this month, Capricorn. And while a Tarot Tower’s experience is not one bit fun to go through . . . it does show you why things fell apart. It literally illuminates your path in a time of destruction, so that you can start picking up the pieces to rebuild a better foundation for the future.
But take heart, Capricorn, because the Sun shines upon you once again! While a big disruptive storm may be brewing, and while it may render some kind of upheaval or destruction in your world . . . the Sun brightens the situation and puts a healthy perspective on things.
Whatever is changing, it’s truly for the best. Even if you have to take a new direction altogether, you’re going to be happier when your life is resting on more stable foundations than what they were in the past! Despite some kind of turmoil that could strike like lightening, Capricorn . . . better times are also promised here. Out of something bad, something good will have a chance to emerge!
AQUARIUS: 8 of Pentacles / Liberation
Progress, development, and liberation are your themes this month, Aquarius. The hard work you apply now can pay off down the road! So even if you are engaged in work that doesn’t seem to pay well now (like an apprenticeship), the rewards that come later can be quite liberating!
So pay attention to details now and work hard at getting things right, Aquarius. Your future path depends upon the efforts you put into things right now.
Be persistent about what you want. You can’t just “say” you want this or that . . . you have to show the Universe what you really want, and you do this through the actions you take and the efforts you apply. Work hard now, and the reward and benefit will catch up to you later. It’s worth it!
PISCES: Knight of Cups / Death
Don’t be alarmed, Pisces. The Psycards Death card, like in Tarot, does not signify a physical death. With the Knight of Cups moving toward that doorway of death, it signifies that a peaceful ending or conclusion to something is near.
What once worked out nicely for you seems to be reaching an ending. But you can find acceptance for this with the hope of new beginnings.
This can signify the ending of a relationship, or it can suggest finally finding peace and closure from an ending that has already occurred. This is all about making peace with things that are changing in your life, Pisces. And through such endings, it is new beginnings that are born!
