May Tarotscopes

Words By Carmen Macri and Ambar Ramirez 

This month, we decided to switch things up a bit. Rather than the usual fortune tellings by reading the stars, we are putting your fate this month in the hands of a tarot card deck. 



Three of Wands: The meaning of the Three of Wands suggests that you are making plans for destiny with extra conviction. This implies that the whole lot around your plans goes smoothly, as you have taken the time to turn plans into action. The symbolism inside the Three of Wands is that opportunities could widen your horizons in many areas. This pushes you to embody change and to start thinking in the long term. 



Four of Wands: Regardless of how bad things may appear right now, Taurus, there is good all around you. Look for the silver linings within the gray clouds and take this time to create balance in your life. This card is imploring you to enjoy the comforts you currently have. Spend that much needed time with friends and family or simply set aside some time to catch up on your beauty sleep. Even flowers need rain and sunshine to bloom. 



Judgment: The conventional Judgement card meaning focuses on the moment whilst you reflect and evaluate yourself and your movements. It is through self-reflection that you are able to have a clearer and more objective evaluation of where you are now and where you want to be. This can indicate that you are in a duration of awakening. You may want to let go of the past so you can move forward and create a new you.



World: To come across the World in your Tarot cards is to stumble upon an exquisite team spirit and wholeness. This card is asking you to look within and truly connect with the world, with nature. You’ve traveled a long road of self-reflection, and it is finally paying off. Dance and sway with life’s rhythm, not against it. Follow the dips and the rises, the fun and the sorrows. You already have everything you need to combat anything that comes your way. 



Magician: The Magician is the representation of pure willpower. It is the connecting force between heaven and Earth. When you get the Magician for your reading, it suggests it’s time to pull into your full ability without hesitation. Whether it be your new job, new enterprise venture, a brand new love, or something else. It shows that the time to take action is now and any signs of holding back would suggest lacking the courage of turning into the best version of yourself. 



Page of Pentacles: Much like you, Virgo, the Page of Pentacles is deeply tied to the Earth, nature and all of its gifts. When we meet the Page of Pentacles, we see at once that she is bold and focused. She can be the bearer of information linked to all earthly and fabric matters. It is time to listen and get to work, Virgo. Follow your ambitions and meet your goals.  



Nine of Swords: The Nine of Swords is often associated with fear and anxiety, all the things that worry you and keep you up at night. Questions are plaguing you, Libra, and you find yourself reciting all the possibilities — all the things that may occur to you. Instead of overwhelming yourself with the what-ifs, focus on what is. Find solace and comfort in those around you. Find alternative outlets for your grief and discover ways to ask for help. 



King of Swords: The King of Swords appearing in a reading suggests that you need to stay objective to your current state of affairs — you must establish reality with the aid of sticking to the facts. The King of Swords and his intellectual strength imply that you will need to use your mind to make your point and obtain your goals. You will need to think with your head and not your heart, Scorpio.



Hanged Man: The Hanged Man understands that his position is a sacrifice that he needed to make in order to progress forward. Much like the Hanged Man, you see the world differently, Sagittarius and often feel as though you are walking a lonely road. A road full of self-reflection. But it is time to look through a new lens. You have the advantage of being on the outside looking in. Let go and let life take you where you need to be. 



Nine of Pentacles: This Nine of Pentacles card indicates that you have reached a stage in your life in which you are confident, impartial and self-sufficient. Through hard work, you are now prepared to enjoy money, enjoyment and comfort. The Nine of Pentacles conveys not only joy but also the sensation of protection and freedom that wealth can bring. Your previous challenges give you a wider scope to recognize the spiritual value of your success.



Eight of Swords: The standard meaning in the Eight of Swords is that of a feeling of being trapped and victimized. This feeling of helplessness that you have, the feeling that you have no company in your life, Aquarius, has been playing against you. The good news is that these traps are matters we create ourselves, meaning we also can depart from them if we position our minds to it. See past the constrained attitude and you will find yourself in a position filled with endless possibilities. 



Five of Pentacles: Whenever the Five of Pentacles is pulled in a reading, it shows a time of hardship and insecurity. You may have been feeling deep loneliness, illness, poverty or loss. The Five of Pentacles is not a good sign in terms of questions referring to love. It may be a hallmark that the person you love is not feeling the same way. You may be feeling cursed — that your awful fortune is something that you can’t shake off easily, Pisces. But look at this way: the universe is closing old doors so you can open new ones. 

 (OUCH. So sorry, Pisces.)
