Welcome to May 2022! As always, May comes in with big promises and always delivers beautifully.
The Tarot for all zodiac signs is here, and it looks quite exciting. While there doesn’t seem to be anything too, too hard going on, there seems to be a feel to the readings that feels refreshing and uplifting.
Again, this may be for you – always ready to make someone smile.
What becomes apparent is that work is a very big part of our lives and if we want to live life to the fullest, we need to work so that we can afford what brings us escape, adventure and excitement.
This month is dedicated to work and creativity. We all realize that we want more out of this life than “the grind” and yet the grind is what gets us the goods, so, hi ho, hi ho, it’s to work that we go.
Some of us will come across new ideas about work and the workplace; when we put our best foot forward, we end up with a positive attitude, and our work and our products benefit from our efforts.
The Tarot focuses on the workplace and our relationship with it, during the month of May 2022.
Monthly tarot card reading of each zodiac sign for May 2022:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Tarot : seven of cups
Opportunities are abundant and promising this month, for the Aries person who is ready, willing and able to accept chance. While it might seem obvious that everyone should be open to luck, that’s not always the case; sometimes we – you, don’t always trust what is presented to you.
In May 2022, you may want to work on the more trustworthy side of your nature. You will receive gifts and opportunities – seize them.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Tarot : the hermit
What’s great about this tarot card is that it shows you are capable of separating yourself from the crowd in order to do what’s right for you.
This could mean demanding a change in a relationship or letting people at work know that you’re not there to be taken advantage of. May brings a wave of self-respect, and this creates a ripple effect; respect yourself and watch how others come to respect you as well.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Tarot : Pentacles Page
This month is all about new projects and new ways to make money. This may involve a new job or gig; everything is very fresh and interesting for you, and so you focus your attention on this new idea/work/adventure.
At this point in the year, you have people in your life who believe in you, and they are now counting on you to pull through. It is not for them, however, that they want to see your success; it’s for your own good, because you deserve that pat on the back.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Tarot : nine of swords
This card is often accompanied by a sense of dread as it tends to represent bad dreams or the inability to get rid of the negative. What is good to know is that this is a temporary state and it is possible to work with it.
You may find that your mind gets in the way of your actions in May 2022, and you may need to use some proven coping methods to help you through this. Keep this in mind: All of this will pass, and nothing you experience (it’s negative) is a permanent condition.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Tarot : wands page
You will be happy to know that you will be the boss of something artistic and creative during this month, Leo. Although this is all new to you, it’s still something you promise yourself you can handle, and you do.
You’re a pro, even when you don’t know what you’re doing. You may find yourself studying hard during this month, as excellence in performance may require research and expertise. You are qualified for the job, whatever it is.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Tarot : The Empress, upside down
Although the month looks pretty good to you in general, you will feel knocked down – to some degree. What it means here is that you’ve come to depend on your status as a “wise guide” and while it’s not exactly wisdom-based, you enjoy playing the role of a shaman.
You will be tested in May and someone in your crowd will tip the scales on you in an effort to reveal you as an impostor. You, as a Virgo, don’t care, but be warned: there’s someone out there who wants your crown.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Tarot : King of Pentacles, reversed
What promised to be a very strong decision on your part in April may well turn out to be a mistake in May. It doesn’t mean much more than the idea of things being put off until another time.
You are a master of ideas; you see far and you know how to get things done, but during the month of May you will be bombarded with obstacles that will hinder your momentum. The action will be stopped, but your mind will still be active; you’re just going to have to deal with another setback, and you will.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Tarot : queen of cups
This month is going to be excellent for you, Scorpio, especially in terms of love, family and positive structure. What you have built will grow; your creative endeavors of the past are now unfolding as fully realized manifestations. You are loved, and those who love you come forward to let you know.
There are no secrets this month, and everything you do is backed by the love and approval of the universe. It’s a good month for you to cherish everything in your life, knowing that it’s fleeting.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Tarot : Six of Cups, reversed
It’s been a very exciting month of planning and lots of stops along the way. This card can mean gifts are coming your way, but in its inverted state it tends to imply that mistakes will be made that will hinder your progress.
This is not at all negative, however, as every mistake seems to have a higher purpose. You are planning a getaway during this month, but it won’t happen until the end of the year. What you have is an insatiable wanderlust, and standing still may be your biggest problem this month.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Tarot : Eight of Wands, reversed
Again, we’re looking at a prohibitive move that happens at an inappropriate time. This means that you will put in a lot of effort for work and work-related things in May, only to receive such a big setback that you will be stopped halfway through.
Your work, however, is brilliant and no one considers you excellent in your field of knowledge. Everything will be fine in the long run, but it won’t happen in May, nor will it happen as planned.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Tarot : Seven of Swords, reversed
Looks like you’re going to get away with something very sneaky in May, and chances are you’ll pull it off. What you will take with you, however, is guilt. You did something wrong and you know it.
It may be financial, but it seems to be something of an emotional nature. Maybe you hurt someone and now you walk away, playing innocent, like you can’t be involved. You’ll get through this, Aquarius, but your guilty conscience might not let you go.
Pisces (February 19 – March 10)
Tarot : Eight of Pentacles
You will focus on creating excellence and quality during this month. Your time will be devoted to your profession, whatever it is, and it will absorb you in such a way that you will find real joy in the act of work.
You will also notice that work gives you something that nothing else gives you: peace of mind, the time alone and the satisfaction you can create, on your own, and end up loving what you do. Your work will be exceptionally pleasant this month.
