The Growth You Need To Survive May 5th’s Flower Moon, According To A Tarot Reader

Not only is Friday, May 5th, 2023 a full moon–called the “Flower Moon” because of the spring flowers blooming at this time of year–but it’s also a lunar eclipse. The eclipse will be visible in parts of Asia and Australia. Though those of you in North America won’t be able to see the eclipse, that doesn’t mean you aren’t affected by it. With both the flower moon and the eclipse, now is the perfect opportunity for growth and expansion amid the ensuing chaos. But how? Find your zodiac sign below to see what the tarot cards have in store for you.


Your card: 10 of Wands

You often take on way too much because you have an impossible time asking for help. Survive the Flower Moon by letting go of some of those responsibilities. Lighten your load and you’ll feel a lot freer.


Your card: The Hermit

You tend to sequester yourself at home rather than living out in the world. For this Flower Moon, take a step away and do something else. Survive by being out with others, even if it’s just people from your small inner circle.


Your card: 8 of Wands

You’re good at making quick decisions, which will come in handy this Flower Moon. Something will happen that’ll need your quick thinking. Embrace the change and go with the flow.


Your card: Ace of Swords

You’re in a rut as the Flower Moon hangs in the night sky. How do you survive this rut? By looking for new ideas. If you keep doing the same old thing, you’ll get the same old results.


Your card: Page of Pentacles

You’ve got some seriously powerful energy for this Flower Moon. Use it to manifest the things you want–especially when it comes to money and career. If you were hoping for a raise or promotion, now’s the time to ask.


Your card: Queen of Pentacles

You most often exude a practical energy, but for this Flower Moon, embrace your nurturing side. There’ll be an opportunity to care for someone or be a listening ear, and you’ll be the right person for the job.


Your card: 7 of Swords

Don’t give in to the desire to burn any bridges with friends or coworkers. You’ll be feeling extra spicy this Flower Moon and if you run with it, you could have some dire social consequences.


Your card: 3 of Pentacles

While you often feel the desire to do everything solo, that’s not the right move during this Flower Moon. Instead, take the opportunity to work with others. Teamwork will get you through it.


Your card: King of Pentacles

When given the chance for any type of leadership role this Flower Moon, take it. You have the right ideas and the wherewithal to delegate them to people. It’s some classic King Energy.


Your card: 7 of Wands

Don’t get caught up in short-term gains when you have the long-term view to think about this Flower Moon. Living in the present is great, but not if it harms what could happen in the future.


Your card: 8 of Swords

You’ll be getting caught up in your self-perceived powerlessness this Flower Moon. Something in your life will make you feel like a victim, but that’s not the case. You have more power than you’re giving yourself credit for.


Your card: Knight of Swords

Let your ambition take the driver’s seat this Flower Moon. Rather than spending too much time thinking and planning, go for action instead. You might just come away with something amazing.
