May 14, 2023

Rejoice! Mercury goes direct today, May 14, signaling an ease to the miscommunications, delays, and general hazy confusion that you might have been experiencing the past couple of weeks. The collective energy this week will feel more balanced and grounded with signs that everything is beginning to get moving again. Plans will materialize, and what was once stuck will now regain momentum.

Our new moon in Taurus on May 19 presents a lovely time to set new intentions for stability, security, and comfort. What can you do now to enhance your long-term goals and create your vision of success? It cannot be all work and no play, so don’t forget to indulge in a bit of pleasure or a small luxury to keep everything in balance!

This week’s intuitively pulled Tarot cards reflect this shift of energy with reminders to think big picture, use your resources, and stay grounded as you create small shifts that have the potential to have a huge impact on your path toward making your big dreams come true.

Read on for your Tarotscopes with cosmic insight to guide you through the week ahead.

Aries: The World Reversed

Finish what you started, Aries. You’re so close to wrapping this situation up and putting it all behind you, so let’s not lose your momentum just yet! It will be such a relief once this is completed. Buckle down, and don’t let the desire to procrastinate distract you from the task at hand.

Taurus: Four of Pentacles

Use your resources, Taurus. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, try to notice what you already possess in abundance. With this more positive mindset, it’s far easier to address what you lack in information or skills and tap into your network for additional support.

Gemini: Ten of Wands Reversed

Set your boundaries, Gemini. You don’t need to give everyone access to your energy, especially when you feel burnt out and exhausted. It’s a good time to say “no” more than you say “yes” this week and to indulge in a little digital detox as well. Cell phones have airplane mode for a good reason!

Cancer: Seven of Wands

Do what’s right, Cancer. When something comes up this week that puts your values to the test, it’s crucial that you stand up for what you believe in and do what feels noble in your heart. Don’t back down from this confrontation, even if you are the only one making noise.

Leo: Two of Swords Reversed

This way or that, Leo? You know you have a rather important decision to make, and you must do it soon before time runs out and the choice is made for you. It would be a shame to miss out on an exciting opportunity simply because you didn’t make a move.

Virgo: The Devil Reversed

Let it go, Virgo! It’s become quite clear that you have outgrown a certain situation, and it’s not going to magically change or get any better on its own. If it’s not enjoyable anymore, then what’s the point of holding onto it? It’s time to make more space for something fun.

Libra: Six of Cups Reversed

It’s not too late to make it right, Libra. Are you feeling a bit stuck in the past, ruminating about how you could have handled a certain situation better? It’s time to do something about it by owning your behavior and apologizing. It’s the only way to move on without regrets.

Scorpio: Five of Cups

What a disappointment, Scorpio. Sometimes as hard as we try to make something work, it just doesn’t always go how we had hoped. It’s time to cut your losses. Instead of continuing to try to force a situation that just doesn’t fit, focus more on being at peace with letting go.

Sagittarius: Three of Pentacles

Share your experience, Sagittarius. Others can benefit from your skills, knowledge, and point of view, but how will they ever know what you have to offer if you keep it all to yourself? Find graceful ways to slip your talents and availability into conversations this week, and the opportunities will come pouring in.

Capricorn: Queen of Swords

Stand up for yourself, Capricorn. This is not the time to close yourself off or pretend everything is ok when it clearly just isn’t! There is nothing wrong with letting someone know when they have hurt your feelings, but they won’t have the opportunity to make it right if you don’t let them know.

Aquarius: Ace of Swords Reversed

Does it need to be a thing, Aquarius? Before assuming the worst and getting riled up for a major confrontation, let’s take a minute and just pause. Reread those texts, look over that email one more time, and listen to what is actually being said rather than jumping to conclusions.

Pisces: Page of Cups Reversed

Reel it in, Pisces! If you feel like your emotions are pulling you in every different direction this week, it’s time to just take a beat and get grounded to be more objective. If you pull back and detach from the situation, it will become clear that this isn’t as big of a deal as you initially thought.
