In May 2018, after spending a little time doing some soul searching, you’ll figure out what you need to do. This month invites you to get all of those ducks in a line and just go for it! Gather your to-do list, put your head down and get the work done. Watch out for burnout, and keep in touch with your energy levels. If you find yourself feeling exhausted, take a step back and process what’s going on. This is no time to back out! Take a rest if you need to, but you’re nearing the finish line, and this month is about doing whatever you need to do to get your project done. Pay attention to your energy levels, let go of stress or tension, and get back into it!
Watch the Tarot card forecast to learn more about what's coming up in May 2018 and how to make the most of the month ahead.

Hi, I’m Brigit, Founder of Biddy Tarot, and this is the Monthly Tarot Forecast for May 2018. As always, I’ll go through:
- What is passing through your life right now?
- What energy is emerging?
- What can you do to take action for this month?
Let’s get straight into it!
WHAT’S PASSING THROUGH?
For what is passing through your life right now, we have the Hermit from the Lumina Tarot deck. Now, the Hermit is very much about going on a spiritual journey and discovering new parts of yourself that you may not have discovered before.
I feel that, with this card in the “passing” position, you may have already been through this phase of spiritual awakening and spiritual exploration, and now you’re starting to move through that. You’ve had your time for being on your own, like the Hermit is, and you’ve had your time for taking a retreat, being introspective—a bit of the navel-gazing, a bit of the journaling, all that good stuff. You’ve had that, and now you can start to let that go and just let it do its work. I think this is a bit like the soul medicine. We just need to take that time out for ourselves and then just let it go, and it does the work for us.
When we look at the other two cards for this month, we can see that there’s not really the space anymore for lots of this soul searching and so on. In fact, the rest of the month is very much about getting into the work, doing the work and being productive.
WHAT IS EMERGING?
This is what is emerging. We have the Eight of Pentacles here. This is definitely the hard-working card. It’s about getting all of your ducks lined up and just going for it. You might have your task list all ready. You know exactly what it is that you need to do. You just have to get your head down and just do the work.
Look, there’s a little bit of this coordination piece. If you’re working with others, make sure that you’ve got the whole team on the same page, and you’re all heading towards the same direction. You want to make sure that there’s a leader, just like we have here, so that people know exactly what it is that they need to do and how it integrates with other people’s work.
You might be the leader, or you might be part of that group who is working very, very hard, but I can assure that this month is the month to be super, super productive and conscientious.
WHAT ACTION CAN YOU TAKE?
What action can you take for this month? We have the Nine of Wands, reversed. Now, with the Nine of Wands, it can sometimes feel like you're just pushing and pushing and pushing just to get to the finish line, and you could be prone to a little bit of burnout if you don’t pay attention to your energy.
Certainly, if you're doing a lot of the hard work here with the Eight of Pentacles, you are prone to doing a bit of burnout as well. Keep in touch with your energy levels, and if you are feeling exhausted, just take some time to step back and process what’s going on, let go of any stress or tension, and then just get back into it.
We don’t want you to have a complete breakdown and completely back out of the project altogether. This is about helping you get to the finish line. With a Nine, you are so close to completion, and don’t want to back out now! This is about doing what you need to do to get across the finish line.
If you’ve been through that Hermit phase, you know how to now quickly go into maybe a meditation practice so that you can manage those energy levels and then keep persevering.
I hope you have a fabulous month ahead! It looks like it’s going to be quite a busy one. Keep in touch with your energy. Make sure you don’t burn out and get completely exhausted, but also make sure that you don’t quit or give up because there’s so much work for you here, and there’s so much for potential for you as well, so make the most of it!
I hope you have a fabulous month ahead, and I look forward to connecting with you again very, very soon. Bye for now!
