Tarot Forecast for May

What wonderful cards for this month!

We have the 4 of Wands, showing a stable base point from which we can flourish. This card indicates that we need to connect deeply with divine wisdom via the divine wisdom of our bodies (which ties in so perfectly with what I spoke about in the video for this month). When we have this deep insoired body-knowing we can then reach up and build castles in the sky. Anything is possible! 

We also have the Maiden of Pentacles (page of pentacles) pointing us towards the Mercury in Taurus inquisitiveness. Be curious about what your body is trying to communicate with you. Can you listen? Can you act on that knowing to build a new knowledge an understanding of how you relate to the world and your resources. 

(cards are from Goddess of Love Tarot)


I hope you have a wonderful May! 

Warmest Blessings
