Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for May 2 - May 8, 2022

Aries

Ace of Swords (Reversed)

Have something to get off your chest, Aries?

The Ace of Swords reversed is uncomfortable, to say the least. You may feel like there’s something to say, an idea to share, or a truth that needs to be out in the open… but the words just aren’t coming through.

Bottling things up doesn’t usually serve the bold ram well. You need to find some kind of outlet for this energy, whether it’s having that difficult conversation when it’s an appropriate time, or telling your journal what’s up.

And remember: honesty is the best policy!

Taurus

2 of Swords (Reversed)

It’s not you against the world, Taurus.

With the 2 of Swords reversed, you may certainly feel it is, though. You may be reaching a kind of stalemate with those around you this week. It may feel like no one is willing to hear out your side of things.

But you have to be careful you’re not leaning into that stubborn bull energy either. Sometimes compromise is the way to get through.

And yes, that’s even if you know you’re right, Taurus.

Gemini

7 of Pentacles (Reversed)

Having a hard time getting things moving, Gemini?

You’ve always been a thoughtful, curious sign at heart. Sometimes this leads you to ask more questions, seek more answers, and try to generate as many ideas as possible.

But with the 7 of Pentacles reversed, this thoughtfulness may have turned into overthinking. This week, you’re in a “planning phase,” but you have to be careful it hasn’t turned into procrastination.

Find a healthy balance this week.

Cancer

6 of Pentacles (Reversed)

Don’t overextend yourself, Cancer.

You’re a generous soul, and others appreciate your loyalty-driven devotion to them. You’re usually very aware that your generosity and attention to others’ needs is one of your greatest assets, so you’re more than willing to give when it’s appropriate.

However, the 6 of Pentacles reversed indicates that you may be doing it a little too much now. Be careful that you’re not giving too much, as burning yourself out will actually make it more difficult to be helpful to others (and yourself!) later.

Leo

8 of Cups

It’s time to move on, Leo.

Deep down, you probably already know this. The 8 of Cups illuminates that there’s something in your life that’s just not clicking anymore, whether it’s a friendship, a relationship, a job, a hobby, or even something as seemingly simple as a sleep schedule.

The lion’s heart can be loyal to a fault, and you’re usually the last person to go down without a fight when it comes to the things and people that you love just waltzing out of your life.

Still, sometimes you have to be the one to pull the trigger.

Virgo

The Fool

Bigger and better things are now on the horizon for Virgo.

You’re starting over this week. The Fool starts the Tarot over at the very beginning, indicating that you’re on the precipice of something new and exciting.

Knowing Virgo, it may have to do with work and career — perhaps new job opportunities, financial boons, or the start of the next big project. But the key is to actually not get too fixated on what this new energy could turn into.

Keep an open mind, Virgo, and most importantly, enjoy!

Libra

6 of Swords

The road ahead may be dark, Libra, but you know it’s the right one to take.

The 6 of Swords is not an easy journey. You may have just closed a door in your life, not knowing if something good will actually fill up its spot.

Still, you know that it was the right thing to do, at least intuitively. This week, you’re taking a bit of a solo journey through the darkness ahead, hoping for the best as you head into unknown territory.

Saying goodbye is never easy, but saying hello to something new will always make it worth it.

Scorpio

The Magician (Reversed)

Scorpios are experiencing a bit of difficulty getting the creative engine running this week.

It might be burnout, or it might be a creative block. Sometimes, the two mix into one. Either way, The Magician reversed is no fun.

Still, you can’t force creativity or innovation. No matter how dedicated and intuitive you really are, Scorpio (which we all know you definitely are), there’s no cheat code to properly getting inspired, which you know intuitively as well.

Be patient and take care of yourself, and it’ll pass in a week’s time.

Sagittarius

9 of Swords

Sagittarius is going through some mental gymnastics this week (and not the fun kind).

Fun-loving Sagittarius doesn’t usually get the reputation of overthinker so much, but that’s only because others aren’t as familiar with what goes on inside the philosophizer mind of the wild archer.

The 9 of Swords is actually not something you’re unfamiliar with. The difficulties of the mind blanket over your week this week, but it’s nothing you can’t handle.

You’re always down for an adventure, but this week the “adventure” is more of a hero’s journey through the headspace.

Capricorn

5 of Wands

Capricorns are usually ones mediating through the drama rather than being consumed by it.

But this week, the 5 of Wands indicates you might be having a harder time staying out of the drama as if it just followed you around instead. Perhaps the hot gossip just keeps getting thrown onto your lap, and/or social media fiascos have been bringing down your social energy.

Whatever the case, this energy is petty and also no fun. But rather than try to fix the problem, the key to getting through this week will be to peacefully avoid it as best as possible — and practice some self-care to decompress in the meantime.

Aquarius

Ace of Pentacles (Reversed)

Opportunity seems to be escaping Aquarius this week.

You may feel like no doors are opening and the right opportunities are just passing you by as if nothing good can fully come your way lately.

This is especially regarding money, career opportunities, and overall abundance and security in the home. The Ace of Pentacles reversed shows a blockage in these parts. However, a lack of new opportunities does not necessarily mean a lack of abundance in general.

Sometimes the key is not to find something new, but to appreciate what is already there!

Pisces

The Star (Reversed)

Having difficulty seeing the light, Pisces?

Pisces is trying to heal and find peace this week. The Star is usually our beacon of insight and soft, compassionate, and spiritual healing that finds us just at the right time.

Reversed, it may seem like the world around you isn’t vibing with this energy, and that your external environments are making it difficult to calm down and smell the roses. But it may also mean that the energy you need is inside you, rather than outside of you.

Leave it to Pisces to find some peace in the imagination!

Embracing a Bit of Both

Now you have your Tarotscope at your disposal — and it’s time to put it to use for the week.

But, this week may seem more difficult than it initially seems, even with only one major transit on the horizon. After all, finding a balance between two sides is not always easy.

A mix of Fire and Earth can create a scorched mess, or the blazing Sun can be the very force we need in order to tend to a blooming garden. How things ultimately play out with this period of Taurus Sun and Venus in Aries showing up in the skies is ultimately up to you.

What we know for sure is that a mix of a bit of everything can ultimately do us some good. Mix up the knowledge from your Tarotscope with a personal Tarot reading, or maybe it’s your daily horoscope with some tea leaf reading.

Whatever your personal taste is for finding an eclectic mix, don’t be afraid to embrace the blend that suits you best this week.
