May’s Theme:: 9 of Wands + 3 of Wands + 9 of Swords Ultimately this month is about taking the leap into the unknown and owning that reality. There is no other way around it but to push forward past your fears and accept that you don’t have all the answers or know what’s to come in detail. The 3 of Wands, symbolic of the center of your heart, is your need to trust your immediate instincts and desires and to take this plunge with your ambitions, imagination and desires. Ahead lies the mecca of all your aspirations and the brink of a new chapter of your life; there may be some fear and anxiety of moving forward as shown by the 9 of Wands but it’s to be expected with such changes. Who are you when you put these fears and limitations aside? This is the very thing that may scare you because you have not been in alignment with that identity yet - the only way to know is to accept that you must own your power now.

Experiences that have led to the present moment, include dissatisfaction with what is and a longing for something that resonates with you on a powerful level. Things left unsettled are popping to the surface for total clearing, the 9 of Swords closes the chapter on any weighing demons and insecurities. In order to get free, you must be willing to see how you have entrapped yourself and make a pact to be you own hero. You are ready and able to exercise your own ability to make things happen. Taking ownership of such, either way, presents a risk needs to be taken in order to grow or progress. What is most important is that you are certain of what you are capable of in the present moment - let that be your guide into the future and stop trying too hard. Exude yourself naturally. Many interesting characters will appear to you this month, the 9 of Wands will grant you heightened intuition and sensitivity where you are suspicious of other’s motives and intentions. I wouldn't second guess my own juju at this point, everything you pick up and feel is valid - this just depends on whether you believe it or not. What others do, the nuances you pick up on can be pushed aside to tend to your own agenda. Anything that disturbs your peace in a time of reconstruction and healing is irrelevant, focus on your own lane - everything is about progression this month in all aspects of your life. If you are to live once as this form, what are you doing to do to make your whole life worth it?

Taurus:: Strength + Knight of Swords + 3 of Cups

What are you made of exactly? This month you get to find out; the Strength will pull from every resource that you contain within, to test your will and your might. This is a time to cultivate the power of patience, persistence and self-control. Rather than reacting in the typical fashion that you always do, the Strength encourages you to tame yourself because you can get rewarded much easily that way. Similar to the tides of the Ocean, there are times where turbulence is needed to regain your equilibrium and there are other times that slow and steady waves produce a more welcoming result. Know your balance and exercise grace and self-understanding; emotionally, you may still be rocking back and forth, dealing with karmic relationships and situations that you’ve created in the past that now have their own effect. Neutrality is King in this equation, and you will need to know what that is for yourself because you’ll be serving as a rock for others looking towards you for wisdom and guidance. Bite your tongue and project your anger into your drive and ambitions; you may be provoked this month to be extra crazier than normal but there are better ways to channel this fire. The Knight of Swords delivers a sense of urgency and importance to your footsteps; there is something you must accomplish and get done in the fastest rate possible. This may be the influx of unexpected projects, others willing to collaborate with you and brilliant new ideas that stream in effortlessly; to catch them all, write them down and attempt what you can handle for the month. The focus will be on doing the most that you can with the time that you have, not procrastinating or piling on more than you can handle. The Knight of Swords also alarms you about rapid communication flying your way; be on the look out for important messages, symbols and details that will capture your attention, signifying what’s to come. Don’t take anyone’s outbursts seriously; this can be possibility, as we move forward with tight energy and tense moments. Everyone resides in their own universe, if it is an unhealthy and bitter one for them, so be it. Carry on with firm boundaries but with your peace intact. If approached successfully, May can prove to be an extraordinary month for you. The 3 of Cups is victory, success and much celebration with loved one and new friends. It is a time to share great innovative ideas and expand on the old; this card can point towards a beautiful June and a project that was successfully accomplished. It is also a time to beautify yourself more and indulge in self-care deeply. Expect victory during your rough patches - you are closer to it than you think.

Gemini:: The Tower + Queen of Swords + Ace of Rods

The world may seem as if it has been crumbling without fair warning. The Tower presents an exciting plot twist into your life that can be confusing if you involve yourself directly in it instead of viewing objectively what is truly going on from a spiritual standpoint. You are presented with many new beginnings to strengthen your foundation and base in various aspects of your life. What you have been sleeping on, making necessary moves & changes in order to implement a better outcome for yourself - has been initiated by the universe. There’s no point in fighting back that which you cannot control. Strive to see the benefits and seek to find the pleasure within these seemingly “downfall” of a scenario. You have the ability to clearly plan out and dictate where you would like to go and how you would like to lead your life. The Queen of Swords is deliberate, intentional, focused and a phenomenal communicator. That which you intend will manifest into your life. This is a great month for expression of all sorts and you are advised to take immediate action on the inspiration and information that you receive. Much honesty is required from you this month, in many ways, you will need to liberate yourself from old ties and old beliefs and by being real with what you believe and have been experiencing, you get to form excellent boundaries and rules around others. We are almost approaching the 6-month mark of the year, the Queen of Swords is one to always work ahead of the game, knowing exactly what it is she wants and telling it like it is so that others are kept in the loop. Creating a strategy for the next months will help prepare you for what the Ace of Wands will bring into your life. The Ace of Wands is acceleration, leadership and strength in will power. You are more than capable of taking initiative on the things that you have been dreaming of and feeling that the time is not right. It is certainly the right time to take action on those ideas that have been marinating in your head. The Ace of Wands requires that you step into the fire and lead with passion - go for it and commit to your success all the way. This may require that you overcome your fear of being a leader or having more responsibility than you would like, hence the presence of the Queen of Swords ensures that you prepare yourself mentally and write out a plan or list of intentions that you can see daily to remind yourself of your power and the course of action you are truly taking. By sitting aside and waiting for the opportunistic moment to arise, others will take what you’ve always wanted to attain yourself. Do not allow the Tower to crumble fully when you can make the best out of this circumstance and recreate an ideal life for yourself in this moment.

Cancer:: King of Cups + Ace of Swords + Knights of Pentacles

The King of Cups is a mastermind of emotion, instead of allowing this force to overcome him and dictate his life, he knows how to manipulate and understand the root of his feelings. This is a skill to be taken advantage of this month, as you have the ability to channel a profound amount of powerful emotion into your work or personal life. Vulnerability is your strength in May and you will need to wear it on your sleeve to make the appropriate choices that change the course of your personal path. The King of Cups knows how to nourish himself without the validations of others and can transform lower vibrations into purposeful expression. You may be overtly stimulated with innovative ideas, encouraged to express yourself in new artistic ways that you’ve once discouraged yourself from or can be feeling so romantic and in tune with yourself that nothing is off-limits this month in terms of what you say or do. This is an excellent combination with the Ace of Swords because although the emotional front is balanced internally, you are extremely calculated and logical in your approach towards others and your personal angle in life. Be mindful of your thoughts this month as they are extremely potent in determining the new direction of your life. You want to make sure that you are focusing on leading-edge thoughts and that they are supporting you in a progressive manner. This is a great time to take action on your creative endeavors as they can lead to provide you great financial success. The Knight of Pentacles is adventurous and passionate in the pursuit of money; with his determination you can create something profitable out any idea that you’ve channed, especially with the assistance of the King of Cups. You may very well be presented with a new opportunity to begin a creative job or project with another individual that admires what you have to offer to the table. Ultimately, the Ace of Swords suggests that it is up to you to take this opportunity but something disguised as a small opening can be very life changing indeed. The Knight of Pentacles can encourage you to implement new streams of income so that you expand your influence. With the abundance of ideas that you will be receiving, discipline yourself to take action on what fits your current course in life but do not miss out on these psychic inclinations that the universe is presenting to you now.

Leo:: 6 of Pentacles + Strength + 9 of Cups

Much of the efforts you’ve been putting out are finally being rewarded to you this month. The 6 of Pentacles makes the promise of seeing abundance once you decide to help others in the same way. This is all about reciprocity; what you put out is what you get back. It is important to focus on the intention on what it is you are emitting out to the universe and your local tribe. There is strength in numbers and this card suggests that your leadership skills are more valuable this month in terms of empowering others and gaining financial income from that. Seek to see the best around you and the best will be presented to you, not to mention that you will be operating from your best and that’s what others will see in you too. You are a magnet for money this month and have successfully healed much of your financial trauma or vibrational beliefs. The Strength card shows a great deal of maturity, putting aside petty matters and controlling your inner lioness for the betterment of your future and those around you. Mental control, patience with self and strength over unexpected adversity is making you much more capable of dealing with the realities of this world; there is a new layer of skin that you build as a result of owning your inner rage and articulating that in a way that is productive and effective for you. Not everything merits an automatic reaction; May will teach you a valuable lesson in controlling your impulses and making better choices for yourself, which ultimately leads you to feeling much more liberated and at peace with what is. The 9 of Cups shows emotional maturity and sense of conquering your “demons.” It is the “genie in a bottle” card that illustrates on a vibrational scale that you have the ability to achieve all that you desire now. Because you have made peace with much inner turmoil in the past, you have freed yourself up from obstacles you would have encountered through your inner resistance. Take it as it comes because one is never quite certain what is in store for us; this card symbolizes the ability to “go with the flow” and to find our personal benefit in the beauty of what lies in the present moment. You feel much more free to express your truth and your personal experiences with others which makes you an invaluable resource now; may you never lose that wild spirit you firmly connect with this month.

Virgo:: The Hanged Man + 7 of Pentacles + King of Cups

Sometimes it is best to take our time in making a decision of a lifetime, but it is as equally important to note whether this is deliberate procrastination or are we playing dumb. You are certainly far from the ladder, however, the Hanged Man always reveals that we know more to a matter, stalling on what we know we can do. Are you holding back from any secret skills or talents; or waiting for the full “you” to bloom? If this is a result of self-criticism, then it’s time to pull yourself off that tree and realize that no one has it together. Not a single person is perfect, nor do they know what they are ultimately doing with their life; so you might as well roam free to explore yours and create in wanderlust. Do not wait on what could be done now, yet the contradiction is, do not rush on what can be done this year. There is a sense of doing things as fast as you can, as mindfully as you can this month. It is because the 7 of Pentacles wants you to double-check your growth and investments. Are you spending enough time caring for yourself or are you getting so stressed within the details that you’re missing out on actually “living” and enjoying what you are doing. Review your progress this month so that you don’t have to make the same mistakes or can adjust accordingly for the next 6 months that are approaching. There should be no waiting game; there is always something to do and to be present on. If you feel you are “waiting” for something it is because you are missing the bigger picture and perhaps some additional details around you that crave your attention. Have confidence that you are doing what needs to be done when it needs to be done and carry onward to your next task. There is much to be delivered from the emotional depths of your soul this month. The King of Cups will capture your heart with romance, great music, phenomenal social experiences or a love/lust for something newly discovered. It is a good time to cleanse yourself of old emotions and baggage by becoming a full-time artist, as we all naturally are - the key is to do so with intention. In utilizing the King of Cups in your life, you engage in choosing your clothing in a way that articulates your spirit, communicating in a way that truly resonates with your heart, and designing your life in accordance to your truth and nothing that falls short of that. This may mean that you could be an emotional waterworks this month, or it could be that you’ve entered a new level of fearlessness with your vulnerability that you no longer give a shit about what others think; you are free. Explore this freedom and see what creations come from it.

Libra:: 9 of Wands + 8 of Wands + 3 of Pentacles

Stand at ease, May can have you unusually suspicious of others or potentially paranoid but this could be highlighting a new characteristic inside of yourself that you’ve always ignored or never noticed before. The 9 of Wands may have your instincts heightened, as you could be prone to react in a way that is not of your nature. It is generally a card that speaks of paranoia, having an outsider’s perspective and looking in - feeling left out of the equation, or it could be that someone has struck a chord with some insecurity of yours and it has you on edge. The first reaction may be defense but there is so much abundance around you, you should be cautious not to burn any bridges that are as a result of passion in the moment. It may very well be the case that you are acting like an outsider to your own self. Look at what currently surrounds you and how you can benefit from it. There is much more on the way. The 8 of Wands speaks of multiple unexpected yet purposeful opportunities that brush along you like a strong current. It is a month of strength, stability and centeredness, as you will need all of these components to be able to grab these opportunities and make success out of them. This should come naturally to you, as these are themes that you have been working on for quite some time but be careful of what you wish for because when it rains it pours. Beginning this month and leading up to those that follow, you have much to juggle on your plate but for your highest advantage. It is a great month to collaborate with others regarding long term plans but this may need some restructuring in order to accommodate and responsibly handle the workload that is heading your way. You want to ensure that you have the right mindset, attitude, and discipline to do what you must. Chances are, if something does not feel right, it is not - therefore, do not wait for another person to handle the business that you can easily do yourself. Preparing yourself for what is to come as if it is already here puts you more in a position of power and at an advantage point. When dealing with others this month, the emphasis is on growing your relationship and highlighting their strengths as shown by the 3 of Pentacles. Quality and Success will appear when all work in harmony, do not be afraid of voicing your particular needs or breaking a tradition to ensure that victory will be met.

Scorpio:: 10 of Pentacles + The Sun + The Hierophant

May will be a relief because you can see that family & home matters are settling towards improvement. The 10 of Pentacles reveals the result of your hard work and efforts, you can see the fruits of your labor building up and   you gain much excitement regarding your future. The 10 of Pentacles can denote a feeling of welcome, peace and harmony amongst your friends, family and new individuals whom are to enter your life. You feel renewed and inspired by many around you, instead of comparing your progress, you can see where you are an important member of the whole. There are strong plans for your future that are implemented this month and much financial prosperity that surrounds you. The Sun denotes a rebirth and new approach to life, things don’t seem as serious any more and you find it much more easier to play with the elements given to you instead of resisting what is. A profound healing with your inner child is to be made this month, perhaps the realization of something that has been haunting you or holding you back in recent years is finally addressed with loved ones or you feeling deeply connected to your ancestry and roots which brings you a sense of belonging and centeredness that you’ve never acknowledged before. It is certain that you are owning your individuality and expression 100% and are unapologetic for the way you think and perceive. There is no longer the need to feel shameful, guilty or doubtful regarding your approach to life; the Sun blasts away any internal oppression and demons that you’ve battled for sometime. In conjunction with the 10 of Pentacles, much of this may have been attained within your childhood, absorbed through your parents energies and exposure to lower vibrations in your environment. You are in tune and connected with the individual you want to be and grow into; this is what it feels like to be connected to your wiser/higher self, finally the truth within you has no choice to but to echo out into the world and it feels great. The Hierophant signifies exciting times for you; you feel liberated to do what you will and explore the myriad of options you have presenting itself to you. This will bring various spiritual revelations and connections regarding the people in your life and the direction you are taking. Pay close attention to the information that you channel on a daily basis, it is subtle but in the soft whispers of the universe come profound life changing knowledge. Trust what is given to you and essentially, what you give to yourself this month.

Sagittarius:: 3 of Swords + Page of Wands + 8 of Cups

May is the month of rejuvenation and extreme self-care; the prior months may have left you mentally torn, confused and as a result your body was affected and so was your soul. What will it take to get back to wholeness? This is your theme with the 3 of Swords, you may be giving too much of yourself and not filling your own cup emotionally. There is a need to accept the reality that is presented to you as well; the 3 of Swords may be the aftermath of unexpected heartbreak, loss or ties being severed with beloveds. Whether this was intentionally planned or you didn’t see it coming at all, the important thing to factor in is that you have to make the best decisions for yourself and place your needs first. It may not be easy but prioritizing your well-being will affect the rest of your life in the most dynamic way; it is an effect that is projected outward into the lives of others because you are so powerful. The Page of Wands tells us of restlessness, the need to explore your life in depth, to do more, be more and experience more. This can foretell a move in your near future or a new direction that is unexpected but strongly felt within your heart. It’s a phenomenal time to be a risk-taker and to create the life you’ve always dreamt of. Prior to making any concrete decisions, look at all of your options carefully. The Wands are symbolized by the element of fire: aggression, passion, spiritual development and advancement; you may be prone to be impulsive at this time, leading yourself with extra gusto but not much logic. It is important to marry your passion with your heart and your mind; don’t just throw yourself into the fire unless you are 100% certain that you will be capable of fending for yourself. The 8 of Cups does hint at a departure, you have found your “old self” again and there is no reason to compromise to an old way of living.

Capricorn:: Knight of Wands + The High Priestess + 7 of Pentacles

May provides the call to action that you’ve been waiting for; instead of sleeping on yourself, you feel much power and ambition stirring in. It’s as if you are ignited from inside to reach above and beyond what you feel is possible for yourself. Expect long days and long nights invested in passionate crafts because your self-belief is through the roof. Graciously enough, the Knight of Wands is this internal energy that keeps going and going, it is the internal combustion that enables you to make those hard decisions and move past any road blocks that you’ve set for yourself in the past. With the security of the High Priestess, you already know that your internal guidance is certain. You feel confident in what your intuition provides and know that regardless of what direction you choose to venture into, you are able to confidently steer yourself and listen to your own wisdom. It is most important that you abide by your own magick this month. What does that mean to you? If you’re wondering, perhaps you are not familiar with your own magick. May will show you exactly what that is. Don’t place yourself in any boxes or definitions, there is a big chance that you can exceed your own expectations and discover that there is more to you than you’ve once imagined. You will feel motivated to take immediate action on all your intuitive impulses, do not second guess yourself now; everything that is streaming in is for you to take initiative on while you still can. The Knight of Wands with the High Priestess marries action with heartfelt intuition, should you choose to move forward on the information that is coming to you then you will be well rewarded. The 7 of Pentacles refers to the waiting game that you typically like to engage in; it is all coming, trust and believe. Instead of waiting, find something productive to do with this extra time knowing that everything will come to fruition. Discrediting your own wisdom now will only set yourself backwards, periodically check on your progress but don’t obsess over it with doubt and resistance. You are very much in control of your own momentum this month and there is nothing that can hold you back unless you allow it do so.

Aquarius:: 6 of Wands + 3 of Pentacles + 9 of Cups

You have come to claim what is rightfully yours this month, the 6 of Wands is significant of a new turning page in your life where you need no permission to go after what you want. This means that you are not one to make excuses for yourself or to back down from a challenge and these past months have provided quite the challenge for you. What else are you to do but to encounter these head on; the 6 of Wands ensure victory, determination and a way out. If there is a will there is a way, don’t worry about the details or knowing the exact steps to get there. This doesn’t bother you at all, however, you’re more concerned with getting the job done regardless of what it takes. The 3 of Pentacles suggests that you have much work ahead of you regarding working with others; you may be involved in international travel or spreading your influence with the help of other individuals. Either way, this may be a project that you’ve been long involved in and are in the process of manifesting more so this month than in any other. In many ways you are a leader and there is no point in wasting time or losing motivation on your own dreams. If others fail to gain momentum aside you, it is your responsibility to show them their value and help them assist you along the way. Ultimately the fulfillment of your goals is also the fulfillment of theirs as well. You may be involved in long term research for some juicy things planned in the summer; this may mean furthering your education either independently or within an institution - the focus is definitely on personal progression and how much knowledge you can absorb to better your craft. The dynamic partnership you are involved in, regarding your creative and career endeavors will pay off in the long run but it’s best to make sure everyone is pulling their own weight and supporting themselves with proper education on their end as well. The 9 of Cups means you can see begin to feel your efforts paying off, but this doesn’t mean that you should feel complacent with the level that you are on. Seek constructive criticism from those close to you and don’t hesitate to reciprocate the favor. You are making great moves this month and you are emotionally satisfied with your life more than ever, but this doesn’t mean that it can’t get better than this. Seek ways to make it so.

Pisces:: 9 of Cups + Queen of Cups + King of Cups

You have the Midas touch this month in terms of manifesting you most immediate dreams and goals. The 9 of Cups is satisfaction attained within the soul and a greater respect for what you represent on a spiritual note. Your focus this month is more on the emotional and the intangible; how to communicate beauty of what lies within and how to create fearlessly and effortlessly with reckless abandon. You feel no shame or guilt over the person you’ve become or past experiences, it has cultivated you into a compassionate and dynamically creative individual. You may be captured by the need to marry various standpoints on how people perceive the world around them, through new creative outlets - making you a profound artist this month. Such raw intensity is exhibited in your natural way of being that you attract many people that find beauty in vulnerability and are also looking to express themselves in an authentic way. The Queen of Cups has you feeling wealthy, capable of handling your own emotions responsibly with balance and finesse but can also have you feeling quite romantic. It may be an excellent month to connect deeply with a love interest or to meet someone unexpectedly that fills all your spiritual and emotional requirements. The King and Queen of Cups work in harmony to meet all of their personal needs while still supporting another in their personal journeys; their agenda is to grow and create in union without compromising their own independent and artistic views. If you are looking for profound love, May can be the month in which you connect with someone very intimately allowing them to see the real you and learning about yourself in ways you would have never imagined. Overall, this combination of cards does allude to a phantasmagorical way of perceiving the world, it may very well seem as if you are “Alice in wonderland,” or are living straight out of your imagination. The speed of manifestation is rapid and there is very little time between you directly thinking an intention and seeing that come to fruition. Should you feel out of ground with the amount of empathic skills that you’re acquiring, find ways to ground through meditation, nature walks, eating wholesome foods and drinking plenty of water. You’re not crazy, you’re just living magically and your beliefs are catching up to you.

Aries:: 7 of Pentacles + The Star + Knight of Wands

Don’t get anxiety if your big break has yet to happen, look at all the experiences you’ve been living closely and ask yourself if it’s not inevitable that you’ll receive your “big break.” This is all contingent on what your “big break” and the definition of success means to you. Get clear on that because it’s approaching you sooner than you think. The 7 of Pentacles is your efforts spent in preparation and periodically checking up on your progress; your beliefs have gotten you thus far and even though you may feel as if you’re no where, it is far from the truth.  It’s time to reassess your work and see how you can improve upon it or seek to further eliminate distractions so you can grow at a more rapid speed. One thing is for certain; the cosmos are all aligning to provide you with all the resources and material that you need. If you ask for it, it is easily presented to you.

The Knight of Wands in conjunction with the Star places you directly in the lap of success and victory; what you’ve been envisioning is very much real and if you’re yet to see how this can transpire, don’t give up yet. It is typically in our final moments of despair and discouragement that we encounter the golden gates of opportunity. Stay humble while you’re still on such an exciting momentum and continue to believe in yourself 100%. There is no point in looking back, because you have so much more work ahead of you. Just within the Knight of Wands’ presence alone speaks volumes of your perseverance this month, you have endured a lot but allow this to be the rock that you stand on that motivates you to continue forward with further determination and gusto.
