Pluto has the world going crazy, but on May 2 it goes into Retrograde, slowing everything down and helping us find our feet again.

This month also sees a New Moon in Taurus on May 8, which can help you build your bank balance, a Full Moon in Sagittarius on May 23, which promotes independence and holding your own, and Jupiter moving into Gemini on May 25, which brings out the entrepreneur in you.

All in all it seems like a time for growth and serenity. But things could be more chaotic depending on how you handle this cosmic energy.

Ahead, you’ll find your star sign’s tarot horoscope for the month of May 2024, with three tarot cards drawn for each sign and their meaning for you explained.

Aries

March 21 to April 20

A happy month is on the cards for you (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot cards for Aries for May: The Sun, Queen of Wands, Knight of Cups

Meaning: Love and adventure ahead

What wonderful cards and what a glorious time for you, Aries! The Sun is the blessings and good fortune card of the tarot, showering your realm with happiness, success, love, friendship, travel, prosperity, and new energy. Be bold, go for the promotion, ask them out, book the trip, start the process.

The Queen of Wands asks you to step up and take ownership for your own success. You control your destiny… don’t leave it to fate, and don’t play a lowball hand. Aim high! Why not? What’s to lose?

The Knight of Cups sees you falling (deeper) in love. If you’re single, look for creative Water signs (Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer).

Taurus

April 21 to May 21

It’s time to move on, Taurus (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot cards for Taurus for May: Six of Wands, Strength, Five of Coins

Meaning: You overcome an old wound and prosper

What you thought of as a loss or setback or regret will magically turn around into something you really, truly want this May!

The Five of Coins sees you starting the month with an old wound bothering you, something from the past. You are known for dwelling on things… so talk about it, express it, release it. Others will understand. And Strength shows you’re ready to heal, process it all finally, take a life lesson, and move on free of this burden. Liberation!

Enter the wonderful Six of Wands. A lucky streak is starting! Six weeks of good fortune and opportunity and all you have to do is to build on your successes and past achievements. Carry on the good work, do more of what people want, be confident about your abilities and shine!

Gemini

Tarot cards for Gemini for May: Knight of Swords, The Hermit, Ten of Cups

Meaning: Assertiveness incoming

Deep down, some major insight or revelation is brewing about your relationship landscape. The Hermit and Ten of Cups combine to stir your feelings, desires, emotions, and needs.

Gemini, you can live in your head (more than your heart) and detach a little from earthy base needs. But you’re re-engaging. You’re acknowledging that you do need other people and you need certain things from them (and also boundaries). It’s okay to be okay with needing people! It’s also okay to prefer your own company and space too.

Find your balance… and do so by really tuning in to those instincts and emotions and tracing them to triggers and root causes. The Knight of Swords sees you losing the ‘people pleasing’ mode and becoming more demanding and assertive about your own needs. About time!

Cancer

June 22 to July 23

You’re naturally intuitive (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot cards for Cancer for May: Five of Wands, Six of Coins, The High Priestess

Meaning: Help someone face a big change

You have the ultimate spidey senses! You can see through people’s outer façade straight through to their heart and soul, and tell exactly what’s going on, no matter what they may say. The High Priestess has your intuition working overtime this May – there is much to dissect and probe (and you love it).

The Five of Wands asks you to zoom in on a squall, a conflict, a scene of tension or stress. Look at it carefully… what’s really going on here? Clue: it’s all about something that needs to change (but someone doesn’t want to).

The Six of Coins shows that kindness and generosity, offers of help and guidance, of ‘doing it with them’ will work wonders. They are just scared really, and are acting out in order to avoid making the necessary steps. Help them do it. They’ll be forever grateful, and this will help you too!

Leo

July 24 to August 23

You’ve got that loving feeling (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot cards for Leo for May: Queen of Cups, Six of Cups, Two of Cups

Meaning: Loving vibes

A trio of Cups cards signals a blissful month all about your friendships, family, and love life. You are a major ‘relationship person’ and value your close circle enormously. The Two of Cups has you falling in love (or deeper in love) this May. You truly feel appreciated, connected, and that this is a mutually loving and loyal bond (it is, so celebrate it)!

If you’re single, look out for ‘love at first sight’ attractions! Water signs (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio) are hot. The Six of Cups hints at reunions, rekindled romances, old friends returning, or a family reunion.   

The Queen of Cups reveals this relationship harmony will make you feel loved, valued, needed, and respected (music to your ears). Leos need an appreciative audience. You’re about to get a big one. Bravo!

Virgo

August 24 to September 23

Tarot cards for Virgo for May: King of Coins, Death, Eight of Coins

Meaning: Results start happening

You are working on a personal development project – be it educational, emotional, physical, or mental. The King and Eight of Coins shows it’s linked to health, wealth, work and that it requires a lot of effort and consistency (which you are struggling with at times) but you know the rewards will be well worth it. This is a heartfelt goal for you.

This is a journey you’re committed to. And this May will bring you tangible, positive, motivating results. You can see the growth, the change, the progress.

Death shows this process is changing more than just the goal you’re working towards. This is an inside-out transformation. Your outlook and values are shifting too, your identity and self-esteem. One change begets another. Action triggers expansion. Well done and keep going!

Libra

September 24 to October 23

Swallow your pride, Libra (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot cards for Libra for May: Seven of Wands, Eight of Cups, Judgment

Meaning: Withdraw and win

Sometimes we find that losing is actually the right outcome, the long-term gift we didn’t ask for (but got). I say this because the Seven of Wands and Eight of Cups sees you withdrawing (gracefully as ever) from a battle, competition, or rivalry that you know is now a lost cause. It has taken a long time to admit this but you’re ready to admit defeat and move on.

This is not a failure. This is experience. This is hard-won wisdom. Sometimes quitting is the right option. Don’t worry, better opportunities will swiftly emerge and you will rapidly see the true shrewdness of your choice. You didn’t really want what you were ‘fighting’ for anyway!

Judgment shows this all leads to a major wake-up call in your life. Perhaps you’ve spent too long coveting what others have or are doing and neglected your own unique talents and desires. Focus back on you. Focus only on you. Follow your true calling now.

Scorpio

October 24 to November 22

Who revels in your success, and who really doesn’t? (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot cards for Scorpio for May: Nine of Cups, The World, Three of Swords

Meaning: Envied by others

Feels like there are some jealous people in your circle right now who are envious of your ongoing development and success. And The World alongside Nine of Cups sees you achieving in a major way this May. Good things are coming. You are going to reap the rewards of your efforts and feel like you’ve hit your potential on something important. Well done.

Notice who isn’t congratulating you or whose response to this feels insincere. Notice, Scorpio, and perhaps take a little step back from them. The Three of Swords is a bit of a ‘red flag’ that you might encounter a bit of shade or even backstabbing from someone who just can’t deal with your glow!

Let the haters hate. Let them fade into the distance as you continue your beautiful, deserved, and magical ascent. You are doing great, keep going. Take the envy as a compliment and side-step it.

Sagittarius

November 23 to December 21

This may be difficult initially, but it will be worth it (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot cards for Sagittarius for May: The Moon, The Tower, The Star

Meaning: Powerful positive changed

Wow, a trio of major arcana cards and therefore all of the unseen forces in your life are going to show their hand this May and reveal their true impact on your life. I won’t sugarcoat The Tower. It means something will be revealed that leads to an ending or severance. And you won’t be sorry! This ‘thing’ was fading, false, or negative anyway and you’ve long suspected you’d be better off without it. The Universe steps in and collapses it for you, be grateful.

The Moon emphasises there has been a secret or unknown information that comes to light and causes this seismic shift. Let it unfold. Don’t suppress what you now know… act on it!

The Star reveals this is all for the best, you’ve dodged a bullet, and now the real rewards will kick in! Fresh, glowing opportunities will emerge and a surprise dream-come-true will land in your lap to cheer you up. All in all, a great month ahead!

Capricorn

December 22 to January 21

Tarot cards for Capricorn for May: Page of Swords, Seven of Coins, Knight of Wands

Meaning: Up in the air

Control is very important to you, Cap, but sometimes life is easier and just works better when you release your grip and just let things flow. What’s meant to be with you will stay, what isn’t will go. Let things find their natural position and level. Stop overthinking and controlling stuff. Take a break!

The Page of Swords and Seven of Coins sees you battling this feeling that things are changing. You don’t need to have all of the answers right away my friend. You’ve got to go through this misty phase before you spot a new light to walk towards. Just get comfortable with a bit of uncertainty and not knowing.

Appreciate you’re changing and you’re figuring out a new pathway, it will all become clear in its own time. The Knight of Wands asks you to have fun this May. Distract yourself with adventure, pleasure, socialising, and good times! When you’re not looking, everything will clarify itself!

Aquarius

January 22 to February 19

Tarot cards for Aquarius for May: The Empress, Four of Wands, Eight of Wands

Meaning: Elevate your relationship energy

Who we surround ourselves with dictates how we feel about ourselves, our social life, our self esteem and even identity. They say you are the sum of the five people you spend most time with. So make them good people and make that time good time, right?

The Empress sees you focused on your relationship realm, looking at who makes you feel loved, inspired, appreciated, comforted. And the Four and Eight of Wands suggest you’re looking to build on the positive, strip out the negatives, and create a ‘higher energy’ in your social and romantic time. Perhaps talking about ideas vs other people. Less gossip, more discussion. More new activity and exploration. Fewer bad habits and unhealthy patterns.

Ask deeper questions of your loved ones and share your own dreams, hopes, fears, and opinions. Get to know each other better. Make exciting plans together. Look out for Fire signs, as well as Taurus and Libra!

Pisces

February 20 to March 20

This will shape your future (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot cards for Pisces for May: Ace of Wands, Two of Swords, Nine of Coins

Meaning: A long-term decision made

Make a firm decision about your long-term future and a robust goal about health, wealth, work or home. Think about where you want to be at in five years’ time. Consider an ideal you can work towards.

The Nine of Coins asks you to invest in your continued self-improvement this May. The Two of Swords reveals an important decision or change can be made that sets you up for success in the long term. It comes from projecting yourself ahead, clarifying a vision, and then realising what is required in the here and now to make that a reality.

The Ace of Wands is that fresh start, new energy or idea. A new hobby, activity, investment, course or training, travel or location shift… something inspiring, something very ‘you’. It starts here and stretches long into your future.
