Have you been missing the strange whims and stirrings of Mercury retrograde? Ready or not, we’re buckling in for it this week, as Mercury goes retrograde on the 10th.
That’s not all, either.
Planet of luck and expansion, Jupiter, will enter Aries this week on the very same day, kickstarting us into a whirlwind of good luck that has to be initiated with our very own Fire and spark, of course.
In other words, there’s quite a bit to look out for this week, no matter how stable or predictable you thought down-to-Earth Taurus season was supposed to be!
With your astrological briefing out of the way, we can now find out what the Tarot has to say for each zodiac sign. That’s right — it’s time for your weekly Tarotscope!
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for May 9 – 15, 2022
Aries, it’s finally time to get moving again.
The bold ram has been having a difficult couple of weeks so far. Burnout, stagnation, and difficult emotions have been stirring around in recent times. However, The Magician is here to shine a new light on your path.
All of these obstacles weren’t for nothing. You now have the creative spirit and drive you to need to take you to the next level.
And that also means new opportunities and utilizing your classic Aries spark to seize them fully!
Knight of Pentacles (Reversed)
You may be tempted to play the role of nurturer or helper, Taurus — but what about for yourself?
The Knight of Pentacles is slow, steady, and a hard worker that often acts for others. With a reversed energy, however, it looks and feels a little “off.”
This week, you may experience a bit of frustration with this role, and it may be because you haven’t used those skills for yourself in a while. Be open to giving and receiving… but with the parts of yourself that haven’t seen a lot of love in a hot minute.

Patient, calm, and asking for some moderation — curious and ready-to-learn Gemini may have a hard time with the soft energies of Temperance.
This week, you’re called to find stillness and embrace some balance and moderation in your life. Perhaps you’ve been going a little too hard and/or stretching yourself too thin.
This doesn’t mean stopping or necessarily even pausing with your goals, ideas, and plans that you’ve built up so far. It just means knowing when to slow down the pace. Sometimes less is more, after all.
6 of Swords
Have somewhere else to be, Cancer?
This week, you’re moving on to bigger and better things (or so you hope). You know for sure that whatever you’ve chosen to leave behind from the past (or even just last week), though, is rightfully being sent off.
With the 6 of Swords, this week is all about embracing the new unknowns with open arms and accepting newness in all its glory. It may not always look pretty, but it’s better than sticking around where you don’t belong.
5 of Cups (Reversed)
It’s okay to mourn the loss of the past, Leo.
The 5 of Cups has difficult energy to wrestle with. It indicates an emotional loss that you may not have been ready for, and reversed, it feels like you may want to put it all behind you and be done with it.
But, sometimes difficult emotions and losses are a necessary part of the journey. You may question why an old memory is still lingering so clearly for you or feel bad for holding onto something that you think you “should” be ready to let go of.
But just let yourself feel what you need to feel this week, Leo.
Page of Pentacles (Reversed)
Virgo, you don’t always have to be “productive” in every way.
The Page of Pentacles is a wonderfully studious, down-to-Earth, and hard-working card — just like you, Virgo! Reversed, however, you may be feeling a bit out of touch with its benefits.
The truth is that you — and this card — are not supposed to be just working for the sake of working. Everything is a learning journey, and sometimes you won’t be able to make immediate progress in the way you’d like.
This week, slow down and allow yourself time to rest too.

8 of Swords (Reversed)
You’re still shaking off the chains of the past, Libra.
The 8 of Swords is no fun, showing us a feeling of restriction and feeling held back in life. But recently, Libras have been making moves to take new strides and step into new paths.
This week is no exception as you turn this difficult energy upside-down. You’re readying yourself for bigger and better things and no longer wish to see yourself as a victim of any kind of circumstance.
Just remember to leave space for yourself to heal, too.
9 of Cups
Scorpio, it’s finally your time to shine and be rewarded.
The 9 of Cups blesses your week with abundance and bounty, especially when it comes to emotional, spiritual, and creative fulfillment.
Scorpios have a tendency to take everything a bit seriously, especially when it comes to things that you care about. This week, you’re invited to take a step back and enjoy the little things.
After all, in order to enjoy the rewards in front of you, you need to recognize them first!
5 of Swords
Sagittarius may have to avoid some foul play this week.
You’re a fun-loving, adventurous sign who ultimately just has a zest for life and wants everyone to make the most of theirs too. However, not everyone always shares your attitude, especially when it comes to competition or jealousy lurking nearby.
The 5 of Swords warns you about those who might affect your energy in this way this week. When people show you their true colors, listen to them. Sometimes that passive-aggressive comment or not-so-funny “joke” is more telling than anyone cares to admit.
Page of Cups (Reversed)
Capricorn, it’s time to go within and get a little creative.
Lately, the wise goat has been bogged down by everyone else’s energy. So it’s no wonder that now, you need some time to play, have fun, and tune back into your emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
The Page of Cups reversed asks that you spend some time with youthful, creative, and intuitive energy but direct it inwards. And no, it doesn’t have to be “productive” or align with any of your long-term plans.
Don’t forget: sometimes, having fun and relaxing is just as much of a part of being “productive” as anything else.
Queen of Pentacles (Reversed)
Aquarius still seems to be wrestling with matters of abundance, stability, and finance.
This week, you’re still in reversed Pentacles energy. This time, with the Queen of Pentacles reversed, it seems like you’re trying to take these matters into your own hands, however.
It seems like you’ve realized you still have some unresolved issues surrounding self-worth and being deserving of bounty and stability. And it’s true — you deserve good things, Aquarius! You’re not selfish for feeling that way.
Work through those feelings this week, and in the next one, you might be ready to go in seizing that abundance too.

7 of Cups (Reversed)
Pisces, you’re having a hard time seeing the light this week.
And by that, we mean, the 7 of Cups reversed hints you’re seeing a little too much all at once. You’re trying to peel through your options and figure out which path is best for you, but dreamy Pisces is having a hard time settling on just one.
Sometimes the issue isn’t having no options but seemingly having too many. However, in your case, some options indeed are not going to move you in any kind of productive direction. Watch out for the ones that are repetitive and remind you of situations of the past.
You’re capable of seeing the way through, Pisces — just tune into that powerful intuition of yours first.
How to Slow Down & Smell the Roses
Now that you have your Tarotscope, you might be tempted to get to work and jump ahead on your planning.
This makes sense, given that this week’s astrological transits are filled with some energy you would typically want to think ahead for. But the reality is that “busy” doesn’t always mean “bad.” In fact, the stars and planets are typically only moving us in the right direction.
Make sure to also consider that it might be good to enjoy these times and see what opens up naturally for you, and be observant about how your Tarot card’s energy pops up in your life. It can be a learning experience and doesn’t always have to be a challenge.
Finally, feel free to check in anytime with the cards (perhaps with a personal Tarot reading) and see what’s new as things change. You don’t always have to resign yourself to things being set in stone!
