Feeling lucky? The stars may have a bit of good fortune in store for you this week.
A hot variety of Taurus energy is in the works as Jupiter — the planet of expansion and luck — will move into this steady, sensual sign on the 16th. This change will affect us for the rest of the year, so buckle in for practical and stability-oriented changes (in a good way!).
Plus, we’ll have a New Moon in Taurus on the 19th, almost as if to set us off with this newfound Taurus energy in a celebratory way.
It’s time to set intentions for financial abundance, practical success, and feeling healthily connected to the material world. But let’s see how the Tarot foretells your life in general for the week, and then make those big plans!
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for May 8 – 14, 2023
Queen of Pentacles (Reversed)
Aries has been struggling with the grounded sort of energy.
It actually may feel like the more you try to center yourself and gain focus, the more confusing everything becomes. In a time of grand expansion and good fortune, it seems like everything in your world is only becoming topsy-turvy.
Just remember that sometimes, the rainbow comes right after the storm.
Taurus is a lover of many beautiful things, but grand-scale, unpredictable change is not usually one of them.
Unfortunately for you, The Tower brings that very energy into the picture, demanding that you quickly adapt to a new flow of stability.
And for now, that “flow of stability” may not look stable at all — your current routines are called into question, your current goals seem ever-so-distant, and everyone around you seems to be invested in their own stuff.
Take a deep breath. Life is changing, but the chaos will bring a clean slate that is important for later. Sometimes, you have to lose something to gain something.
Knight of Wands
Are you ready to show off just what you’re capable of, Gemini?
You’re on a confidence streak lately, and the Knight of Wands picks up the continuing trend. Now, it’s just all about action and a go-getter mentality.
Don’t focus on saying or planning what is important this week. Instead, allow yourself to get into the flow of acting and just doing.
This week can actually be quite productive (despite its apparent unpredictability and randomness) if you allow yourself to act on instinct and just do what feels good.
9 of Swords (Reversed)
Cancer is often known for the depth of their feelings.
This week, the depth of your thoughts may get you in hot water. More specifically, the 9 of Swords reversed warns that you may need to pull yourself out of overthinking and getting stuck in your anxieties and fears.
It’s easier said than done to just put a stop to an unproductive overthinking loop, but for Cancer, the key is always to connect back to your heart.
Find what is true and authentic within yourself, and remember that fear has nothing on that!
4 of Pentacles
Leo is holding onto what’s theirs… or at least is trying to.
The 4 of Pentacles hints that Leo may be feeling a bit of anxiety surrounding their material wealth, prosperity, and stability, especially when it comes to finances and career.
As a result, you may find yourself clinging onto everything that is familiar and trying to assure yourself of what’s yours — and for some, this may turn desperate or selfish.
You need to remember that you’re not in this alone and that others are often going through similar things. Reach out to those around you this week. This doesn’t have to be a purely solo journey.
2 of Cups
It’s time to make a connection, Virgo.
Sometimes, you can be quite an independent type, more focused on the work at hand and prioritizing your personal goals (rather than fixating on other people’s standards or expectations).
This week, the 2 of Cups asks that you turn your attention to others, not for any reason other than… it feels good for your heart.
In other words, this week is a good time for making heart-to-heart connections, running with your intuition, and prioritizing your emotions.
Libra’s arms are wide open and ready to embrace their true selves.
The Sun shines upon you with those confident, open-hearted rays, ready to help you take the next steps in your journey with full self-acceptance and understanding.
You’ve walked a long road, and this card indicates that it’s time to take what you’ve learned, feel it deeply in your heart, and embrace your true self with all those lessons illuminating what that is.
It’s an exciting time to be a Libra… or maybe it’s just an exciting time to be you!
The High Priestess
Scorpio’s focus is somewhere a little more esoteric and otherworldly for now.
This week, The High Priestess hints that truths are yet to be unveiled, but most of them cannot be found through plain logic or solving riddles.
Instead, you must go within and listen to what your intuition is telling you about the situations in front of you. It’s not easy to just roll intuitively instead of logically, but luckily Scorpios aren’t strangers to this style of doing things.
Remember that the answers to your problems and future plans may not be immediately obvious… but they should always feel right somewhere deep within you.
King of Cups (Reversed)
Sagittarius is all up in their feels this week, and it won’t just be smooth sailing.
The King of Cups reversed illuminates rocky waters within, and it may frequently feel like your emotions are getting the best of you — or on the flip side, like it’s really difficult to even understand what you’re truly feeling.
Either way, this week is all about regaining control over your heart and rediscovering what’s really within yourself (and how you want to deal with it).
Even if it feels like your heart is running away from you, remember that it’s ultimately still yours. Make an effort to understand what your inner depths have to say.
Capricorn is having a hard time seeing clearly right now.
The Judgement card usually brings us clarity and vision for what is to come, indicating that our head is in the right place for decision-making and our next steps.
Reversed, it can feel like that energy is on the table, but there’s a wall between it and you. It’s not that you’re totally cloudy and confused, but it’s more like there’s a word on the tip of your tongue that you can’t quite remember.
For now, it may be a good move to put off important decisions and conversations. Don’t force yourself into something that doesn’t fully feel right, Capricorn.
The World (Reversed)
Life is still a little cloudy for you, and it can feel like you’re close to finishing something, but the finish line keeps moving. Completion and fulfillment feel so close yet… so far.
So, now may be a time to find a way to congratulate yourself on what has been accomplished so far, even if it doesn’t seem like the Universe is ready to hand you physical rewards just yet.
The fulfillment you seek may need to come from within yourself first.
Pisces is celebrating a patient, creative, and calm flow of energy this week.
It’s well-deserved that you have Temperance in your midst, as you’ve been dealing with your fair share of rocky energy and events lately.
This week is all about replenishing your energetic reserves through meditation, balance, softness and compassion, and creativity combined with a bit of spirituality.
Everything is coming into balance now, and each beautiful thing in your life has some room to be explored and creatively integrated into something else.
Your Taurus Energy Prep List
For the energy up ahead, you will want to be well-prepared.
Taurus energy is all about taking steady, responsible steps to get yourself in a well-prepared and secure state. So it’s only appropriate to get a little more well-researched before you plan for its energy this week.
