Every month I pick a tarot deck out of my collection and pick 12 cards from that correlate to each sign of the zodiac. This is #crushascope for May 2018.  

Happy Beltane everyone! I hope you are all celebrating May Day. Today mark’s Spring’s peak and the beginning of Summer! May's #crushascope was conjured up using the Tarot of the Cat People.


This month is going to be full of fun and happiness. Expect for things to be peaceful and harmonious with your partner. For you single bulls out there, this will be an excellent time for you to meet people. Now that things are warming up, it is time for you to enjoy being outside and in the company of good people. Spread the good vibes!  


I know all work and no play can be frustrating when it seems everyone else around you is having the time of their lives. You may have to really focus on work and organization but know that the payoff will be grand. Don’t stress people flexing for the gram. Limiting social media or even taking a break can also help you focus on producing great work that will impress those. This is also a great month for twins looking for a raise or new job.      


You find yourself multitasking in order to escape certain stresses. Do not take too much on. I cannot say this enough about your sign Cancer. Make sure you take the time to take care of yourself and not others. Distracting yourself with other things that could eventually annoy you is not the solution. Take breaks. Make boundaries.


You are in a for a good needed rest. You are putting in a ton of work and have attracted a lot of new folks into your world. I do recommend a good saging or personal ritual to remove the energy of others from your own. You will be absorbing a lot from people around you. Self-care is also important. Perhaps invest in a nice piece of obsidian too to absorb negativity others may project on you.


You have no issue dishing out your opinion this month. Just be careful you do not hurt feelings. The Ace of Swords is a card that brings the truth regardless of the aftermath. Make sure your words do not cut. You do have an advantage at expressing yourself really well and offering great advice. Just make sure to not spit out the first thing that comes to mind. You do not need to argue! Your opinion with tact is your best asset.          


You find yourself holding on to memories of your past as a form of therapy. What lessons from back then can you bring into your current situation? Perhaps you are making efforts to be more positive by studying the things that brought you joy. Do not get too caught up with things that aren’t present. Looking back is just a tool you can use to create something new and wonderful. This is also a time to hold on to those near and dear to your heart.      


You find your entrepreneurial spirit this month. You take control of the tasks at hand and help other along the way. You also temper your emotions but finally having a strong sense of being over stuff that plagued you before. Your opinion is valued more than usual this month. You may be asked to place your input and will offer sage advice. You also give off an extra attractive energy that other will notice. Expect a lot of invites to social gatherings as you will be in high demand.  


You are looking to expand your current goals. This is a great time to really put a lot of possibilities into play. Is it time to find a better apartment? Perhaps you are looking for a better position at your job or at another company doing what you enjoy. You want to grow without the growing pains. This month is a perfect buffer for that. Put out feelers for what you are trying to do and know the right results will come your way. Social media may come into play with this too as a status update may offer something you cannot refuse.


May can be somewhat dramatic for you. You may have a strong tendency to put your foot in your mouth and offend people. Do not get caught up in assumptions. Mind your business and if there is something you really need to find out simply ask the right person, in private, at the right time. You do not want to get caught up in a social media battle either so keep your typing fingers to a minimum.    


You learn a hard lesson this month about the company you keep. There is a saying that goes “Tell me who you hang out and with and I will tell you who you are. You may be disappointed by a relationship/s and may hide from the world wondering why things are terrible. The good news is, you have people in your life that aren’t dirt bags. Hard lessons may be needed in order for you to learn what good support is. Just take things one day at a time.


You may find yourself being bored and dissatisfied. You will struggle to get out of your funk. Do not force it. Find some inspiration by redecorating your room, polishing up your portfolio, or updating your resume. This will be a good time to really tie up loose ends or re-visit projects. Do not force anything new as you may tie an expectation that could lead you into disappointment.


This is a great month to plant seeds and set goals. Your wishes can become in your reality. You just have to have faith that you deserve the best. This could also push you to be better at something, either way, May is a win/win situation for your sign. Put your best foot forward with the most sincere intention in your heart. Prepare to see results.
