Your Zodiac Sign’s May 2024 Tarotscopes

If you aren’t briefed on what’s to come for May, you might find that its energy will give you whiplash when going in blind!

Pluto retrograde begins in Aquarius on the 2nd, forcing us to reflect on changes thus far and adjust accordingly if we’ve gone off track. The Taurus New Moon on the 7th will also prompt us to reflect upon our plans more seriously moving forward and plant seeds of progress for our futures.

Even Mercury moving into Taurus on the 15th can have us slowing down to think through everything more clearly and thoughtfully, which may feel sluggish at first but ultimately will help you solidify your goals.

Finally, as Gemini season takes off on the 20th and Venus moves into this same Airy sign of the twins on the 23rd, we’ll have time toward the end of the month to move more eccentrically, experimentally, and imaginatively.

This might seem like a lot to digest all at once, so don’t worry — we’ve found a way to synthesize the most important guidance and insights you will need through the Tarot (with one Major Arcana and one Minor Arcana card each)!

Your May 2024 Tarotscope


Judgement & 6 of Wands

Aries finally has found some clarity and recognition for their efforts this month!

Judgement shows a clearer understanding of what you want, what you need, and how those needs and desires connect with the world around you.

Plus, the 6 of Wands follows up on that clarity and offers victories and wins, showing that others are responding well to your perspectives and how you’re projecting your energy into the world around you.

It’s a great month for making progress in personal projects, putting yourself out there, and making big steps forward.


The Hermit & Page of Wands

Taurus has a lot of wisdom and insight at their disposal, but the vibe isn’t always so serious this month.

Although The Hermit shows that you have a lot of expertise to draw from in May, the Page of Wands equally shows that you’re often feeling lighthearted, adventurous, and youthful this month, too.

Sometimes, the best way to explain and share what you know with the world is by showing through action and example (rather than sitting seriously in contemplation and thought), and that’s the vibe you’re giving off in May 2024.

It’s time to live your life, have fun, and let the wisdom shine through you.


Temperance (Reversed) & 2 of Swords

Gemini is frequently feeling stuck, imbalanced, and out of sorts this month.

The 2 of Swords shows you stuck in thought, perhaps caught up in a crossroads and uncertain about what the “right path” really is for you. 

Temperance reversed doesn’t exactly help, as this reversal indicates impatience, restlessness, and potentially feeling spiritually disconnected. You may not just feel out of place with the world around you but within yourself, too.

Dwelling on the “right” or “wrong” choices here isn’t going to get you anywhere, Gemini. Focus on finding peace and stillness within yourself first before trying to decipher the answers of the Universe.


Death & Page of Pentacles (Reversed)

Cancer has a big month of change and transition ahead, although it won’t always be easy!

As Death brings forth personal transformation and a lot of shifts within yourself (how you perceive your own identity, plans of action for the future, and what you want moving forward), this May is all about moving into the version of yourself that is new and authentic.

However, the Page of Pentacles reversed points out how this doesn’t mean the path will be immediately clear, as you may find it difficult to get tangible work done in the process.

Basically, your practical responsibilities may feel slow and unmoving right now as you focus on more internal momentum, which is okay!


The World & Knight of Cups (Reversed)

Leo, your life is opening up in a big way… but it won’t always feel easy.

The World expands your horizons and indicates that many things are capable of coming full circle this month. Projects may come to a close, new ideas can sprout out of the closing cycles, and even fresh starts will feel connected to something larger than yourself.

However, the Knight of Cups reversed notes that, emotionally, you may feel uncertain about yourself and what you’re doing. With so much in motion, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

Enjoy the process of things opening up for you in a good way, but grant yourself time, patience, and grace when the growing pains get tough.


The Magician & Queen of Cups (Reversed)

Virgo, are you ready to make some magic?

The Magician shows you being in your creative power this month. Virgos with entrepreneurial pursuits in mind should take this as an especially fortuitous sign, but in general, this card is a great signal for career, work, and personal creativity.

On the other hand, the Queen of Cups describes a more withdrawn and potentially uncomfortable emotional state. Although you’re making good progress on the outside, your internal world may not feel as organized or controlled.

But if there’s anyone who can handle that kind of disorganization, it’s Virgo!


The Emperor & 4 of Pentacles

Libra finally has some control over their circumstances this month.

Embodying the leadership-oriented card of The Emperor, Libras are coming in hot this May with a decisive, controlled, and confident disposition that’s ideal for making important choices and speaking up.

However, the 4 of Pentacles warns against leaning into a lack mindset, feeling too individualistic, or getting greedy with what you’re able to give away (whether it’s money or even more basic resources like your time and attention).

Remember that it’s a good thing to embrace your confident independence and that good leaders also know how to give back.


The Hierophant & 10 of Cups (Reversed)

Scorpio is reorienting their perspective on their future, what fulfills them, and their values.

Although the 10 of Cups reversed can be an uncomfortable reality check on what doesn’t really fit into your life (illuminating everything that’s out of line with your dreams and intuitive needs), this energy can be productive in the long run despite the emotional discomfort it causes right now.

In tune with that energy, The Hierophant also asks you to check in with your values, foundational structures in your life, and the routines and systems that you abide by right now.

Basically, it’s time to get serious about what you really need, Scorpio.


The High Priestess & 10 of Pentacles

Sagittarius has a wonderful month ahead when it comes to making productive future plans!

The High Priestess and the 10 of Pentacles show a clear 20/20 vision of long-term goals, how your intuitive needs align with your future, and how career, work, and financial stability should look moving forward.

Note that this doesn’t mean May is a month of action; it is just clear sight and planning.

It’s a good month for coming to decisions about these things, but not everything needs to be executed right now.


The Empress (Reversed) & 10 of Swords (Reversed)

Capricorn has a time of slow, uncomfortable healing ahead.

With the 10 of Swords reversed on your plate, you’ll be examining old wounds, loose ends, and unfinished business this month whether you want to or not. There’s no room anymore to run from the past.

Because of this, The Empress reversed complicates your practical creativity and ability to get things done in any sort of tangible way (and perhaps shows you reckoning with how to act out self-love and self-care).

However, this May, for all of its discomforts, has the potential to be healing if you’re willing to slow down and focus on everything within that needs to be heard out.


The Chariot (Reversed) & Knight of Swords

Aquarius is ready to charge forward, but not everything is in order just yet.

Although the Knight of Swords shows you pushing forward with clear momentum, fresh energy, and strong ideas, The Chariot reversed warns that not all of those things can be utilized properly right now.

The vibe you’re putting out there is good, to be clear! But The Chariot reversal demands some extra thought; you’ll need to think through how your actions impact long-term goals and how they really align with you as a person.

With just some extra thought and care, this month can be a strong, productive one for Aquarius.


Justice (Reversed) & 9 of Cups

Pisces, you don’t have to have everything straightened out to get what you want.

This month is proof of that fact, with Justice reversed, acknowledging all the ways that you will be feeling out of sorts this May. You’re not quite sure about what’s right, true, or good for you moving forward.

However, the 9 of Cups still hints that miracles, sweet surprises, and wishes coming true could be on the way regardless of how you feel internally.

Just keep an open mind and heart, and you may notice that this month has plenty of beauty in store for you, Pisces.

How to Masterfully Use Your Tarotscope

Your Tarotscope can illuminate information about your month ahead and offer some guidance about the approach that may be best, but believe it or not, it’s not always one-size-fits-all.

It’s up to you to discern which pieces of info are really resonating with you and how they might manifest for you on a more personal level, after all.

Here are some of our favorite ways to connect with your Tarotscope:

  • Journal and reflect upon your insights through creative writing
  • Expand upon anything you’re curious about through a second clarifying Tarot reading
  • Dive deeper into your cards by researching what they mean on the whole
