Tarot reading for May 2018

I don’t know about you guys, but April has been super busy for me! I have no idea where this month has flown, and what do you know, we are in the fifth month of 2018 already! How is time flying so fast?

Anyhow. Without further ado, here’s your Tarot reading for May 2018.

Tarot reading for May 2018

Remember, this is a general Tarot reading for May, and my intention with this one was: What do my blog readers need to know this month.

Tarot reading for May 2018

There is some beautiful energy that we can tap into next month! Both of the cards are from the suit of cups, which indicates that our emotional well-being and relationships are likely to be the center of focus in May.

May is likely to be particularly favourable for forging new relationships, which indicates that partnerships and  collaborations can flourish this month. Like with any relationship, though, you will only get what you sow – so be sure that you are clear on what your objective is and what each one of you is bringing to the table. Also have your boundaries clearly defined, this will help any partnerships or collaborations to really thrive!  This would also be a great month to rekindle an old friendship, and even to spice up your love life!

Despite the focus being on relationships and partnerships, you are also being called to examine what is happening within, at an individual level. After all, we are also in relationship with ourselves. This would be a good month to look at how well you are taking care of yourself.

  • Are you making self care a priority?
  • Are you taking the time to pursue the things you love?
  • Are you letting other people claim all of your time, and therefore finding yourself unable to do the things that would bring you joy?
  • How can you change that? Remember, if you don’t put yourself first, no one else will!

There is also likely to be a lot of creative energy this month, but depending on your circumstances, it could go either way. You may find yourself filled with creative ideas and energy, or completely blocked and frustrated, or balanced precariously between the two – you may have the ideas, but for some reason, you may be unable to implement them.

If you are filled with creative ideas and energy – make the most of it! If you have the ideas but are unable to implement them, make sure you’re writing your ideas down so you can come back to them later. And if you are stuck, it may be best to accept this time as the fallow period that all creatives experience. Follow a different passion for a while. Pick up a new hobby or skill. Immerse yourself in the ideas, places, and experiences that fill you with wonder and joy. Slowly, the block will either release, or you will find a new creative rabbit hole to go down, but the creative energy will start to flow again.

I hope this reading resonated with you. Do let me know in the comments!

  1. I do love these tarot readings! While I’m not even remotely interested in any sort of romantic relationships, this could go to friendships and such right? I have been on a never ending journey of self-care and improving my strategies for self-care so this could definitely help me in the month of May:) #LGRTStumble

    • Yes, it certainly can go towards friendships/collaborations/partnerships. Also your own relationship with yourself, which is a journey you’re already on! 🙂
