Phew! April is nearly done and dusted… Spring sort of finally arrived, though it is cold and blustery again outside today and everything is blooming a month later than usual. Still, now we look forward to Beltane and, the day before or on the day (depending on where you live and when you celebrate), we have a powerful Pink Full Moon in Scorpio. That said, it is nearly time for the May Tarotscopes and to find out what is on the cards for the month ahead. But first…
A word or two about the Pluto-Mars conjunction in Capricorn…
In case any of you are reading this today, 26 of April, we are right now as I type this, experiencing the influence of a Pluto exact conjunct Mars. Some of you will feel it more acutely than others. It’s an angry and restless sort of energy that I know a lot of you are picking up on from what I have seen on social media. This transit is happening in an exact conjunction with my own natal Capricorn sun, so I don’t get much relief from it. That said, if we are willing to change/let go and to channel that restless energy into exercise and/or find other constructive uses for it, it need not be an entirely soul crushing experience.
The influence of this transit began 3 April and is set to last for most of May, ending on the 24th. On a global scale this means that the following issues will be highlighted in the news even more than usual in the weeks ahead:
War crimes, cyber attacks (especially involving banks/power structures since this is in Capricorn), aggression by dictators and terrorist groups, mass shootings and gang violence, blackmail, attacks on peace and humanitarian organisations, accidents involving large groups of people, fires, corruption being exposed and dissidents causing splits in large organisations.
General theme for the month ahead
That doesn’t mean the month ahead will suck. The Tower (Mars) or Judgement (Pluto) aren’t setting the tone in May for any of you who are reading this. The Tarot cards that wanted wanted to come out for May are the 3 of Cups and the 8 of Cups. Relationships are being transformed. Tolerance levels for other people’s BS is pretty much zero oer the next few weeks and this I feel is tied in with the Pluto-Mars conjunction. We long more than ever for authenticity, for stability, for the kind of relationships we can rely on.
Don’t forget to check your Moon and Rising Signs as well as your Sun Sign for what is on the cards for you in May. For the May Tarotscopes, we are working with the Lo Scarabeo RWS Pamela Colman Smith Tarot.

May Tarotscopes Cancer
May is a month for falling in love. OK, so you really have your heart set on this one. Looks like you can have them but not without being a bit sneaky and engaging in some dating strategy games. Take a step back and assess the situation. Come up with a game plan and stick to it. They will be yours, oh yes they will! Don’t be surprised if trust issues crop up later though.
May Tarotscopes Leo
Intense transformation and upheaval is taking its toll. Make ‘This too shall pass’ your mantra and make sure to spend any spare time you have doing as little as possible so that you get a chance to recharge your batteries back up to 10% at least. A relationship could end this month. It’s not one you will miss for long. In fact, relief may be the overriding emotion after the initial shock.
May Tarotscopes Virgo
Virgo is another sign that is getting a visit from the Pluto/Scorpio Death card transformation energy this month. However, you are very well prepared. You have analysed the situation, gained an understanding of past patterns, decided to trust yourself and let go of what no longer serves you. Many things that have been troubling you in the past will now scatter like clouds after rain, simply because you decide that deserve to be happy.
May Tarotscopes Libra
Some of your friends no longer get you and you don’t feel as inclined to hang out with them any more but you also don’t want to risk losing them forever. What to do? Expand in the direction of your interests and your heart’s desire. As you begin doing more of the things you love, you will begin to attract a different ilk of friends. Your soul tribe awaits. Don’t be afraid to let go of luke-warm relationships.
May Tarotscopes Scorpio
You’re stuck in a stop-start pattern and it is driving you mad. Maybe you’re hesitating because you’re not meant to go down this path? There is a better way – Possibly an alternative you haven’t considered yet. Put the situation on hold until you have gained perspective about how this path/course/job will benefit you. For some of you this can be resolved during a long walk/hike. Others may need a week or longer. A change of scenery will help.
May Tarotscopes Sagittarius
You have done the inner work, balanced your energy, achieved harmony within and without and now feel the sap rising. You are ready to move forward with a new (divinely inspired) project or venture. Make sure to approach it with a beginner’s mind and study carefully how to make the most of this new opportunity. You have what it takes to make it a success but there are a few tricks you need to learn along the way. The Page of Pentacles mindset is one of paying attention to the details – This will serve you well to remember.
May Tarotscopes Capricorn
A new idea brings massive opportunity/luck your way if you act quickly. It looks like this idea is one that you will need to spend some time working out the details for before you can present it to the world though. The Hermit says ‘Set some time aside to come up with an action plan and make a daily schedule.’ Your consistent hard work will pay off. This could concern the writing of a book or it could be something else. Expect it to take your career in a whole new direction!
May Tarotscopes Aquarius
I’m getting a month of two halves for you… There is sadness, loss and regret at the start of the month but things will soon begin to turn around. To help things feel better straight away focus your thoughts on kindness toward self and others. Little random acts of kindness will lift everyone’s spirit and getting in the habit of paying it forward will soon turn the tide of sorrow as well as open doors for blessings of joy and abundance to come rolling in.
May Tarotscopes Pisces
Don’t be so focused on your career, daily grind or money matters this month that you forget to nurture your emotions. You could be using work and staying busy to not have to heed the messages your heart is sending you about a need for emotional healing. As much as it brings discomfort, you need to set aside some time for going within, even if just five minutes a week, to listen to your heart and give it what it needs. On the plus side, a really good investment opportunity is coming your way this month and of course you should make the most of it but you still need time for heart healing.
