Your Weekly Tarot Reading for May 19–25, 2024: Trust the Process.

May 18, 2024

This week ushers in Gemini season on May 21, followed closely by the magical impact of the full moon on the twenty-third. We have so much to look forward to this week! Gemini is represented by the chatty, curious celestial twins of the zodiac who invite an inquisitive energy to the collective. This is a lovely time to learn, socialize, and create new connections! Ask questions without needing the answers. Indulge your every whim and flight of fancy! Read the book you’ve been meaning to get to, or finally listen to that recommended podcast episode. Communicate in new ways and do so for hours! It’s lovely to get lost in the beauty of deep conversation. 

May’s full moon is known as the “flower moon,” as it occurs when everything is blooming and blossoming. Use this energy as an opportunity to notice where you, too, are blooming and blossoming and let the Universe know your next intentions with clarity. Your words are powerful, and speaking your dreams out loud under this lunation brings extra attention and magic your way. 

This week’s intuitively drawn Tarot cards highlight the importance of trusting your own process. Good things take time to grow and reach their potential. Instant gratification feels thrilling in the moment, but embracing patience leads to long-lasting results. Sometimes circumstances don’t progress as expected, and the path forward isn’t crystal clear, but that doesn’t mean that beautiful results are not imminent. Accept where you’re at and keep going. Have faith in yourself and trust that the desired outcome is coming!

Read on for your Tarotscopes with cosmic guidance for the week ahead.

Aries: Knight of Swords Reversed

Slow down, Aries. If you continue moving at such a swift pace or look too far down the road at what is yet to come, you could miss out on the beautiful moment right before you. Press pause this week to notice what is already here for you in the present moment.

Taurus: The Hanged Man Reversed

A new perspective is needed, Taurus. This week offers an opportunity to pull back and see your current situation from an alternative angle, which poses the question, “Do you like what you see here?” If not, then this is a lovely time to make some much-needed changes, which could even include letting it all go.

Gemini: Nine of Cups

Enjoy what you have, Gemini. We can all get caught up in the forward momentum of achieving goals and thinking about what’s next, what’s next, and what’s next, but what is the point of all of that if we cannot indulge in the beauty of what we have already created? Take some time off this week to enjoy your blessings and the present moment.

Cancer: Two of Cups Reversed

Prioritize your own energy, Cancer. If you always think of others’ comfort while neglecting your own, you will probably feel burnt out and resentful. Pay attention to how you have been sacrificing your own needs in favor of others so you can make some proper adjustments this week. You must take care of yourself!

Leo: Page of Swords

Communication is key, Leo. This week, knowing exactly what you want to say and how to effectively say it is your superpower. Unnecessary misunderstandings can be easily avoided if you remain crystal clear about your intentions and boundaries. Don’t expect anyone else to read your mind when you have the ability to be straightforward and upfront.

Virgo: King of Cups Reversed

Remember to breathe, Virgo. If you are feeling more pressure or stress than usual, it would behoove you to create more space for rest and meditation this week so you can approach everything from a place of calm. Don’t put yourself into a position where you say something you later regret because you acted impulsively.

Libra: Three of Wands Reversed

Utilize a new approach, Libra. If you have been feeling stuck lately, this week presents an opportunity to objectively look at your current situation from all angles to figure out what isn’t working. Maybe you can finally unlock what was previously missing to try a novel solution to get everything moving.

Scorpio: The World Reversed

It’s time to get moving, Scorpio. Everyone procrastinates at some point, but this is beginning to get a little ridiculous now. What are you waiting for? Stop putting off the little things you know you need to wrap up and finish. Get to it this week so you can finally move on to something else unencumbered.

Sagittarius: King of Pentacles

Embrace practicality, Sagittarius. It’s time to get down to business this week, so make your important tasks and epic goals your top priority so you can make some headway in that realm. Be reasonable with your expectations around your time management and energy levels so you can set realistic deadlines for yourself as well.

Capricorn: The Tower Reversed

Lean into the shift, Capricorn. Something new is brewing for you, and it looks like you have known it’s coming for a while, yet there’s been some hesitancy around fully embracing it. What are you so afraid of? Once you figure that out, it will be so much easier to embrace this beautiful opportunity.

Aquarius: Eight of Cups Reversed

Listen to your heart, Aquarius. This week offers a respite to press pause and consider what you want from your current relationships, free of others’ input and judgment. Once you know what you truly desire, you may allow that to be your compass as you decide how to proceed.

Pisces: The Chariot

Trust your process, Pisces. Everything’s coming together just as it should—even if it doesn’t look exactly as you initially thought it might. Don’t get bogged down by the nitty-gritty details because it’s far better to focus your energy and attention on the task at hand. Keep pushing forward without second-guessing yourself.
