May 2021: Key 5 & Tarotcasts

Updated: Jan 30, 2022

May ushers in the energy of Key 5: The Hierophant, the same Key for the year 2021. It is this double layer of universal energy that gives us a chance to propel ourselves forward on our life path and in our soul purpose in a way where the energy is naturally attuned to this work.

The Hierophant, originally the High Priest, calls for us to seek guidance and counsel from a teacher who has sought the mysteries before us. To come from a place of passion and innocence through the flames of desire and the waters of understanding. To be silent and humble in our approach so that we may better hear in order to understand. To surrender ourself to the Divine will. To transmute the personality we have created in order to become a higher and better version of ourself. To become the Magi where all things are possible by doing the Great Work through focus, determination and the hard work ethic of Taurus. When we shift into alignment with Source, doors open we did not know existed, pathways appear before our eyes, possibilities become endless, and manifestation occurs naturally with minimal effort. This is the Divine will, this is the Hierophant in the month of May.

May will also find Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion, in its natural ruler of Pisces. This is a time where we find ourselves pondering the big questions like the meaning of life, where inspiration and creative expression can propel us forward, opportunities for success are everywhere, and “luck” is on our side. In the Tarot, Jupiter corresponds to Key 10, The Wheel of Fortune.

So ask yourself, will you continue to spend hours, days, months and even years waiting for something to happen to you that will put you where you want to be doing what you want to do how you want to do it, or will you seek in silence and surrender in order to finally find you place, path and purpose forged ahead with greater ease and grace?

Here’s a look ahead at how each sign can work with the energy of Key 5 in May. To get a more well rounded picture, look at your sun, rising and moon signs.

Aries: 2 of Swords reversed - you have stewed over and weighed your options more than once, and now that you see things clearly. You are being called to cut out what you KNOW no longer serves you or stands in your way of becoming a higher and better version of yourself, to experience and live in joy, purpose and power free from excess baggage and confusion.

Taurus: Knight of Swords - it’s time to take the reins and get after it. No more daydreaming, no more “some days”, no more “maybe’s”. It’s time to put the pedal to the metal and go after what you want and who you want to become. It will take great willpower and mental fortitude, but you have it within you.

Gemini: Ace of Pentacles reversed - it’s time to get clear and focus on what you want to bring into physical manifestation. Once you are able to get specific, seek not to manifest that thing independently, but to move into alignment with the Divine so that what you receive is for your highest best, and that it may stay upon arrival.

Cancer: Ace of Wands - the Divine is not only speaking directly to you, you are literally being handed the wand of new opportunity, potential, expansion, and growth. You are being pointed in the right direction by the Divine, and all that you need to do is to reach out, accept it, and turn this inspiration into a creative expression of your soul.

Leo: 7 of Pentacles - you have already planted the seeds and now you are being called to tend to your garden. Growth is occurring even if you can’t see it. You’re being asked to be patient, to nurture these seeds and the soil that supports them for long-term growth and opportunity. You may also want to remove any weeds and pests that are disturbing the peace and disrupting growth.

Virgo: 2 of Cups - you’ll find the answers and guidance you seek when working in communion with others, particularly those that counterbalance your strengths and weaknesses. Watch for auspicious introductions to new people this month, or those already in your circle who by working with there would be a mutual benefit.

Libra: Knight of Cups reversed - you wanted to seek and so you did, but the world was not your oyster and now it’s time to come back home, let your imagination and creativity flow once more, and start filling your own cup. This about self reliance and fulfillment, to be your own knight in shining armor for who knows better what fills your heart and soul then you. It’s time to listen and to feel.

Scorpio: 5 of Swords - you are at the halfway point, obstacles and struggles have been very real and felt. Issues around communication breakdowns and failures, being taken advantage of, or manipulated must be corrected, and it is time for you to speak your truth. You need to do it in a way that doesn't sugarcoat the situation, and also sticks to the facts so that you can move forward to calmer seas ahead.

Sagittarius: 4 of Wands reversed - what once came together in harmony, must now separate in order to progress further. This may be aspects of yourself, a physical world identity you created like a label or title, your personality which no longer serves you, or perhaps an actual relationship or partnership. This separation will allow for inner harmony in order to create the conditions for future success.

Capricorn: The Sun - It is time for you to shine, to bask in the gloriousness of all you do and have done, and to strut your stuff for the world to see. Where you find your joy, keep doing that, and if you haven’t been doing it, then this is the Universe cheering you on to start doing it. This month will bring good fortunes in ways you least expected. Remember, it’s the little things that count the most.

Aquarius: The Hierophant - it’s time to buckle down, get serious and practical in your approach, and to seek counsel from someone that knows the ropes better than you. You may have a plethora of ideas, but you need someone that can help you lay it all out in order and make sense of it in a way that stops you from constantly spinning your wheels.

Pisces: The Lovers reversed - it’s time to get aligned. Let go of the things that are not doing a thing for you, are distractions, or are harmful. Just because you want it doesn’t mean it’s meant for you. Stop focusing on trying to manifest and start confusing on alignment with Divine will. If a relationship has been holding you back, it’s time to part way. If a strained relationship is worth salvaging, it’s time to start working on repairs.
