Spiritscopes are general readings for entertainment purposes only. They may not resonate with everyone. Be sure to read both your sun sign, your rising sign and any other placements you feel connected to in order to get a full picture of the month ahead.
Aries: Eight of Pentacles
The Eight of Pentacles in a spirit reading, represents a spirit who is dedicated to having their loved ones succeed. It suggests that the spirit is still engaged in the pursuit of mastery and that energy is being directed towards you. This is most likely in a material context such as health or wealth. If you have been thinking about selling valuables to cover debt or unexpected expenses, know that your ancestors approve, and won't be upset if you part with their things. They would rather you feel secure financially than hold on to something just because.
Taurus: Five of Cups
The Five of Cups may indicate that there is a spirit around who is still attached to a past trauma or emotional pain, such as a loss or mistake they made that hurt others. The ghost may be struggling to move on from this pain and may be stuck in a state of sadness or regret. This card is also indicative of a "residual spirit" whose energy is stuck on a loop. This month you should explore ancestral trauma and healing options. Nothing is ever solved overnight, but sometimes just having someone acknowledge their pain is the first step to removing it.
The Justice card in a spirit reading may represent a need for personal accountability and self-reflection. This could be related to you, or it could be related to the energy of the spirit in your midst. In some instance this card can represent the relationship between the two of you. A spirit tied to Justice may be seeking to come to terms with their own actions and decisions in life. If ammends are something you've been wanting to make with someone, now is the time.
Cancer: Knight of Wands and Six of Swords
The spirit around you this month is likely a fire sign, particularly a Sagittarius.
The Six of Swords in a spirit reading represents a sense of transition and movement beyond the physical realm. You may feel as though this spirit hasn't been around in a while, and are wondering why. Rest assured that it isn't because they don't want to be with you, they just have other things occupying their time. Tradtionally the Six of Swords depicts a figure in a boat, suggesting they are moving on to something new. Water is heavily associated with the underworld and if you find yourself needing advice, seek them out around lakes, rivers and other bodies of water.
Leo: Six of Cups
This month you have a spirit around who is looking to reconnect with you. They are strongly attached to the past and the memories you shared together. Reliving these moments provides you both with a sense of healing and closure.
This card can also be associated with the spirit of someone who passed away young or "before their time." It is heavily tied to the idea of childlike innocence, and so leaving games or toys as offerings on your ancestor altar is a great idea!
Virgo: Four of Cups
The spirits associated with the Four of Cups generally have a heavy and even depressing energy. They may have struggled with substance abuse or another addiction in their life. It's important that you don't let their emotions invade your personal space. If you're feeling overwhelmed with ancestral trauma work, it's perfectly fine to take a break from the practice. The idea that one person is responsible for fixing centuries worth of damage is exhausting, and quite frankly somewhat dangerous. Put your needs first.
Libra: Two of Pentacles
This card represents a spirit who spent the majority of their life juggling things. Career, child rearing, socializing, relationships, whatever, all needed to be prioritized and they felt as though they couldn't quite manage. However for outside observers it may have appeared otherwise. When I see this card in a spirit reading I picture an overworked person who didn't truly get to chase the life they wanted.
They may be visiting you quite often to make sure you're following your dreams, or at least taking time to prioritize the most important thing in your life: you.
Scorpio: The Emperor
When it comes to ghosts and spirits, the Emperor often represents a grandfather (or father) figure who has passed on. This card is tied to 'traditional' ideas of stability and structure. If they were a compassionate and emotionally supportive person, this is a welcome thing, but if they are patriarichal or abusive, this can be damaging. You don't need to engage with anyone (living or dead) who you don't feel safe around.
This spirit is likely reaching out to provide guidance on some big issue you're facing this month, likely surrounding your career or finances. Don't be afraid to ask your ancestors for a little help in getting what you need.
Sagittarius: The High Priestess
The High Priestess is the keeper of the veil between the living and the dead, so her appearance signals that you have a lot of spirit work to do this month. May begins with the Gaelic festival of Beltane in the northern hemisphere, or Samhain in the southern hemisphere. Both of these days are all about the boundary between our world and the next thinning. Expect a lot of activity this month, especially around the four major moon phases: new, first quarter, full and last quarter.
Capricorn: Queen of Cups and Eight of Cups
The spirit around you this month is likely a water sign, particularly a Cancer.
When I see the Eight of Cups in a reading like this, I think of a recent passing. This person has left the physical world and are beginning their journey on the other side. If you are feeling abandoned and left behind understand that is completely natural, and it won't last forever. There are some quests we cannot go on until it is our time, BUT we can help them out. I would burn a few candles to help light their way, or provide offerings of things that could come in handy such as money or tools.
Aquarius: Four of Pentacles
This card in a spirit or ghostly context represents worries around finances and possessions. It could be you who is having a hard time letting go of material posessions, or it could be the spirit. If you are feeling like you don't have enough, it can be natural to hold on to what you do have even tighter. Be cautious not to hold on too tight, because you might miss the new things coming into your life.
If it isn't about items in the physical world, the spirit may be having issues coming to terms with their new reality. In this instance it can be tempting to push them to accept it, but it will actually do the opposite. Take the time to talk with them, honour them as often, let them know they won't be forgotten as long as you're around.
Pisces: Seven of Wands
The Seven of Wands is a lot about fighting and standing your ground. This spirit may have spent much of their lifetime "fighting for things." This could've been around money, it could've been in a war and it could even just be about fighting to be their authentic self. If you'd like to honour ancestors who struggled, take the time to thank them for their efforts and show them the ways life has improved for you. What did they do that paved the way for you?
On the flipside, this card could be advising you to put up stronger spiritual boundaries, so you aren't walked all over by ghosts. Our physical space belongs to us and the spirits are guests, make that abundantly clear.
