TNA’s Tarot For The Star-Signs – May 2021
Taurus: April 21 – May 21
You will have to let go. What is gone is gone! Clinging will only create misery. If you haven't heard nature whispering to you lately, now is a good time to give her the opportunity. Connect and allow it to communicate with you as you approach it humbly, with a gentle reverence in your heart. Nature has seen many hard times, and she has a lot to share with you. This will help you set things in motion.
Don’t dwell on the past or the future. Drop all your judgments, your preferences and the attachment to the details of your long-term plans. Be available to what comes your way, as it comes. And don't worry if you stumble or fall; just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, have a good laugh, and carry on.
Gemini: May 22 – June 21
Review, assess your judgements - Does what you see in others really belong to you? Is your vision clear, or clouded by what you want to see? A projection can be devilish or divine, disturbing or comforting, but it is a projection nonetheless: a cloud that prevents us from seeing reality as it is. The only way out is to recognize the game.
Sometimes, whatever decision we make, we always wonder if we should have decided the other way, it feels like being stuck between a rock and a hard place. The only way out of this dilemma is, to let go of both at once, and instead follow the heart. What may follow is meeting of the hearts, a partnership vision and equality.
So, whether you are beginning something new and need inspiration right now, or you’ve just finished something and want to rest, go to the Source. It's always waiting for you, and you don't even have to step out of your house to find it. Let go of Power and control, turn to the source for energy.
Cancer: June 22 – July 22
There are times in our lives when too many voices seem to be pulling us this way and that. Our very confusion in such situations is a reminder to seek silence and centring within. Only then are we able to hear our truth. The Inner Voice speaks not in words but in the wordless language of the heart.
To develop the knack of taking a distance from the mind is one of the greatest blessings.
Indulge yourself in the simple freedom of “Turning in” whenever you can, and the knack of meditation will grow and deepen in you. Just watch the antics of the mind: without judging, don’t try to stop them, don’t identify with them, just watch, as if they were traffic on the road, or ripples on the surface of a pond.
There is still too much 'what- if?' activity in your mind. Tomorrow never comes, and no matter how often we say it, most of us tend to forget the truth of it. In fact, the one and only result of postponing things is a dull and depressing feeling of incompletion and 'stuck- ness' today.
The relief and expansiveness you will feel once you put aside all the dithering thoughts that are preventing you from acting now will make you wonder why you ever waited so long.
Leo: July 23 – August 23
Transformation comes, like death, in its own time. And, like death, it takes you from one dimension into another. This is a time for a deep let-go. Allow any pain, sorrow, or difficulty just to be there, accepting its "facticity."
To develop the knack of taking a distance from the mind is one of the greatest blessings. It is what meditation is all about really: not chanting a mantra, or repeating an affirmation, but just watching, as if the mind belongs to somebody else. You are ready to take this distance now, and to watch the show without getting caught up in the drama.
Indulge yourself in the simple freedom of “turning in” whenever you can, and the knack of meditation will grow and deepen in you. Whenever we feel 'left out', or excluded, it brings up this feeling of being a small, helpless child who is “not enough”. It is not surprising, as the feeling is deeply rooted in our earliest childhood experiences. Recognize the roots of these feelings in the past, and let go of the old pain. It will bring you the clarity to see how you can be free to become that which you most long to become.
Virgo: August 24 – September 22
The Inner Voice speaks not in words but in the wordless language of the heart, who only speaks the truth. It is alert, watchful, and able to accept both the dark and the light, with clarity that comes from transcending all dualities.
True celebration arises from a joy that is first experienced deep within, and spills over into an overflow of song and dance and laughter, and yes, even tears of gratitude. Let your hair down, take your shoes off, and start splashing in the puddles right now.
You have an opportunity to participate with others now to make your contribution to creating something greater and more beautiful than each of you could manage alone. Your participation will not only nourish you, but will also contribute something precious to the whole.
Libra: September 23 – October 23
Life repeats itself mindlessly - unless you become mindful. The Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death, the wheel of time. Life moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death, death is followed by birth; love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love; success is followed by failure, failure is followed by success. And it goes on and on, but you don’t see the pattern. Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it.
Let yourself be softer and more receptive now, because an inexpressible joy is waiting for you just around the corner. Nobody else can point it out to you, and when you find it, you won't be able to find the words to express it to others. But it's there, deep within your heart, ripe and ready to be discovered. You will recognise the playfulness and intelligence that comes when you are able to connect with the heart and move into the world from there.
When we recognize the common source of our humanity, the common origins of our dreams and longings, our hopes and fears, we are able to see that we are all joined together in the great miracle of existence. When we can combine our tremendous inner wealth to create a treasure of love and wisdom that is available to all, we are linked together in the exquisite pattern of eternal creation. There is no clinging here, no grasping. It is a circle without fear of feelings of inferiority and superiority.
Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
Recall the story about a lion who was brought up by sheep and who thought he was a sheep until an old lion captured him and took him to a pond, where he showed him his own reflection. Many of us are like this lion - the image we have of ourselves comes not from our own direct experience but from the opinions of others. A “personality" imposed from the outside replaces the individuality that could have grown from within. We become just another sheep in the herd, unable to move freely and unconscious of our own true identity. Dance, run, jog, do gibberish - whatever is needed to wake up the sleeping lion within.
It is time for movement and change. It may be a physical movement from one place to the next, or an inner movement from one way of being to another. Either ways it will bring a sense of adventure and growth; there is no need to struggle or plan too much. Accept and embrace the new, just as when we travel to another country with a different culture and environment than the one, we are accustomed to. This attitude of openness and acceptance invites new friends and experiences into our lives.
The truth of your own deepest being is trying to show you where to go right now, trust the inner guidance you are being given, and don’t look outside for cues. In following the inner guide, you will feel more whole, more integrated, as if you are moving outwards from the very centre of your being. If you go with it, this beam of light will carry you exactly where you need to go.
Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21
To develop the knack of taking a distance from the mind is one of the greatest blessings. It is what meditation is all about: not chanting a mantra, or repeating an affirmation, but just watching, as if the mind belongs to somebody else. You are ready to take this distance now, and to watch the show without getting caught up in the drama.

There are times in our lives when too many voices seem to be pulling us this way and that. Our very confusion in such situations is a reminder to seek silence and centring within. Only then are we able to hear our truth.
'Experiencing' is the feeling of wonder itself, the thrill of communion, the gentle touch of our connectedness with all that surrounds us. If you haven't heard nature whispering to you lately, now is a good time to approach her with reverence and gentleness and listen to her secrets.
Capricorn: December 22 – January 20
When we are faced with a very difficult situation, we have a choice: we can either be resentful, and try to find somebody or something to blame for the hardships, or we can face the challenge with courage and grow.
Something is finished, something is completing. Whatever it is, a job, a relationship, a home you have loved, anything that might have helped you to define who you are: it is time to let go of it! Allowing any sadness but not trying to hold on. Something greater is awaiting you, new dimensions are there to be discovered. You are past the point of no return now, and gravity is doing its work. Go with it: it represents liberation.
Cleaning the house, tending the garden, cooking a meal--the most mundane tasks take on a sacred quality when they are performed with your total involvement, with love, and for their own sake, without thought of recognition or reward. You are facing a time now when this easy, natural and utterly ordinary approach to the situations you encounter will bring far better results than any attempt on your part to be brilliant, clever, or otherwise extra-ordinary. We so easily take this beautiful world we live in for granted!
Aquarius: January 21 – February 18
Being "in the gap" can be disorienting and even scary. Nothing to hold on to, no sense of direction, not even a hint of what choices and possibilities might lie ahead. All you can do now is to relax into this no-thingness, treasure each empty moment of the experience. Something sacred is about to be born.
It's time to face up to the fact that the past is gone, and any effort to repeat it is a sure way to stay stuck in old blueprints that you would have already outgrown if you hadn’t been so busy clinging to what you have already been through. Take a deep breath, put the box down, tie it up in a pretty ribbon if you must, and bid it a fond and reverent farewell. Life is passing you by, and you're in danger of becoming an old fossil before your time!
Let’s face it, there is always going to be somebody who is more beautiful, more talented, stronger, more intelligent, or apparently happier than you are. And conversely, there will always be those who are less than you in all these ways. The way to find out who you are is not by comparing yourself with others, but by looking to see whether you are fulfilling your own potential in the best way you know how.
Pisces: February 19 - March 20
The Inner Voice speaks not in words but in the wordless language of the heart. It is like an oracle who only speaks the truth. It is alert, watchful, and able to accept both the dark and the light with clarity and calm that comes from transcending all dualities. Seek silence and centring within, to hear your truth.
Sensitivity, intuition and compassion are the qualities that shine forth now, dissolving all the obstacles that keep us separate from each other and from the whole. It’s a time of unboundedness and gratitude for whatever life brings, without any expectations or demands. Neither duty or thought of merit or reward are important. Be receptive, receive, overflow, empty out and receive more.
Zorba the Buddha" who can drink wine, dance on the beach and sing in the rain, and at the same time enjoy the depths of understanding and wisdom that belong to the sage. If you are a woman, the King of Rainbows brings the support of your own male energies into your life, a union with the soul mate within. For a man, this card represents a time of breaking through the conventional male stereotypes and allowing the fullness of the whole human being to shine forth.
Aries: March 21 - April 20
The Inner Voice speaks not in words but in the wordless language of the heart. It is like an oracle who only speaks the truth. It is alert, watchful, and able to accept both the dark and the light, with clarity that comes from transcending all dualities.
You are no longer interested in all kinds of dramas and romances that other people are engaged in. It is the birth of a love that is truly unconditional, without expectations or demands. Like the intertwined branches of two flowering trees, and their fallen petals blended together in their beautiful colours.
The trees stand individually, each rooted in the soil in their own connection with the earth., representing the essence of true friends, mature, easy with each other, natural. There is no urgency about their connection, no neediness, no desire to change the other into something else.
You are at a point where a world of possibilities is open to you. Because you have grown more loving towards yourself, more self-contained, you can work easily with others. Because you are relaxed and at ease, you can recognize possibilities as they present themselves, sometimes even before others can see them. Because you are in tune with your own nature, you understand that existence is providing you with exactly what you need.
Allowing ‘the divine force’ to do its work on us is one way to maintain higher levels of energy and enthusiasm in these trying times. This month’s reading, prescribes attitudes that make you receptive to this force.
