The Tarot Card for May 16 is The High Priestess

The Tarot Card of the Day

The High Priestess

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: receptivity, passivity, potential, knowledge, secrets!

Astrological Correspondence: The Moon

The mysterious High Priestess closely guards her secrets and occult wisdom. This card symbolizes the unconscious, a concern with our internal worlds, spiritual forces, and the understanding of higher truths through dreams and intuition. As a wise woman the High Priestess is the goddess of fertility and is seen as a healer, possessing intuitive powers and clairvoyance, and striving to create harmony and inner balance. She emphasizes the necessity to get in contact with our inner self, to reflect and meditate, to trust our feelings, and to let dreams and intuition guide us. Observing – rather than participating or acting – the High Priestess can also represent platonic love, manipulation, a pause in a process that was progressing or even a standstill, causing doubt and confusion.

The Zodiac Signs As Superheroes…

Do you have what it takes to save the universe? If the signs were superheroes then each would have a different approach to rescuing victims and slaying villains. Whether it be with powers of invisibility, elasticity, impenetrability or even a range of high-tech gadgets – they’d all have their own unique style. Here’s what type of superhero each of the zodiac signs would be.

Aries: Superman/Supergirl.

 

The cape and the tights are a natural fit for Aries. Your sense of invincibility makes you feel pretty super human at times but there’s always this lingering urge to go higher, faster, stronger. The thought of not being tethered to the planet – being able to fly through the universe and bore to the centre of the Earth pricks both your ego and sense of adventure. Try to avoid Kryptonite and Lex Luther where possible.

Taurus: The Incredible Hulk.

 

The Taurus zodiac sign would most likely be the Hulk. You’re slow to burn but when you do lose control you appear to double in size. Rage is a motivating force that you can use to move immovable objects and objectionable people. Green may not be your color but there’s something oddly satisfying about a hero that just goes ballistic and smashes the crap out of everything.

Gemini: Deadpool.

 

Are Gemini personalities heroes or anti-heroes? Sometimes it can be hard to tell. They resemble the duality of superheroes like Deadpool. Smart talking, rude, oversexed, you enjoy the rapid fire world and need a hero with a badass name. Deadpool’s powers of regeneration are perfect for Geminis who typically get frustrated when things grow or heal too slowly for their liking. Team this power with lightening hand to hand combat and constant trash talking and Gemini could save the universe in the blink of an eye.

Cancer: Harry Potter

We reckon Harry Potter qualifies as a superhero cos he’s got powers and and vanquishes super villain Voldemort over and over again. As a Cancer zodiac sign you love all things magical and a world where nothing is as it seems. You connect with Harry’s humanity and the family he creates at Hogwarts and you love the prose of casting spells and transformation – your favourite thing is the cloak of invisibility – with this Cancer could ensure their loved ones were safe at all times without being accused of stalking.

Leo: The Flash.

 

Everything about the Flash just matches the Leo personality – from the name, the red suit, the lightening bolt – and the super speed thing too. Your love for all things explosive closely resembles this heroes ability to create a giant electrical storm out of nowhere. And just like the Flash’s super speed abilities – you can go from 0 – 100 in the blink of an eye.

Virgo: Dr Who.

 

The Virgo zodiac sign would be a quirky and eccentric kind of hero like Doctor Who. Since you’re a professional organizer you might find the idea of storing the entire contents of a house inside of a phone box sounds oddly appealing. Just like the Doctor you’re also a keen problem solver who doesn’t require flashy powers and grandstanding to get the job done.

Libra: Spider-Man.

 

There’s something Libra-like about the rhythmic way that Spider-man travels, looping through metropolis like acrobats on silken threads. If you’re a Libra you’ll love the spider dance and the super sensory aspect of being part arachnid. As a sign that strives for balance and avoids violence you imagine that Spidey could just weave a net to catch your enemies – all without a single drop of blood being shed.

Scorpio: Batman.

 

Of course the dark night is Scorpios superhero pick – as they are basically just a blood transfusion away from being a vampire. You’ll love the gothic overtones and the menacing underbelly of Gotham City. The brooding aura around this hero along with the slightly damaged psyche are things that Scorpio can relate to well.

Sagittarius: Antman.

 

Sure, being tiny might not be the most show stopping power. But as an adventure loving Sagittarius you’re eventually going to run out of exotic destinations to visit and as a micro superhuman endless new possibilities would open up. You’ll have the chance to climb a blade of grass that – to scale – was higher than Everest. Or even tunnel underground deep below the Earth.

Capricorn: Wonder Woman.

 

The Capricorn sign and Wonder Woman have more in common then you might realize. This sign shares the same strength and resilience that embodies the warrior spirit of this hero. You can try to knock ’em down over and over again and they’ll get back up every time. Very little is able to phase them or throw them off track particularly when they’re on a mission.

Aquarius: Thor.

 

As a storyteller and lover of all things mythological the Aquarius personality is drawn to superheroes who have their basis in ancient fables. Thors’ Viking heritage and his never ending battle with shape shifting Loki accurately captures the intensity of this sign. What’s not to love about a timeless story of family treachery and redemption – that’s right up the the Aquarians alley!

Pisces: Catwoman.

 

The Pisces personality can feel lost and tormented at times. But they can also be menacing too when they sharpen their claws. Which is why they would most likely be the Catwoman if they were a superhero. They have a tendency to like animals even more than humans meaning they’ll feel quite at home saving the world as their feline self.

Your Horoscopes for Friday, May 17th

Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You are full of clever, resourceful ideas today, which is why you will see new uses or applications for something that you already own. Likewise, you might see new ways to make money on the side. You might even find a better paying job!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Take a realistic look in the mirror today and ask yourself what you can do to improve the image you create on your world. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression! Your discussions with others will be powerful and to the point. (Oh yeah.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your ability to search for answers and solutions is fantastic today. You’ll be like a dog with a bone. Not only is your mind focused, you have the motivation and endurance to keep working until you find what you’re looking for. If you discover secrets – be discreet.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might attract someone today to you who is really powerful. (“Hi Darth.”) Do not be intimidated because there is also a likelihood that you are the powerful person in someone else’s eyes. Either way, your conversations will bring about changes for the better.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your interaction with a boss or a parent will be powerful and to the point today. In fact, one of you might be blown away. On the other hand, everyone is prepared to deal with big issues in order to get a better result. This could mean you have to start all over again.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Steer clear of people who are on a soapbox and proselytizing their personal views on politics, religion or racial issues because they will be too much. Run the other direction. Meanwhile, don’t coerce others to agree with you on these issues, either.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You couldn’t pick a better day to plow through details related to banking, shared property, taxes, debt, wills, inheritances and insurance matters. You will make great headway because you have the motivation, perseverance and pluck to find what you’re looking for. Good luck!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Stay calm when talking to partners and close friends because conversations with others today will not be casual. They will be serious, to the point and perhaps revealing. Some people might be pushy. (Not you, of course.) That was a joke.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This will be a productive day at work because you have penetrating insight and a deep desire to introduce reforms and make improvements to whatever you do. You might be aggressive because you see how things can be better. Be skilful to get the cooperation of others.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If you’re involved in sports and competition, today might be a bit fierce because people are aggressive! They will mean what they say and say what they mean. They will also be physically in your face. Take it easy. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is the classic day to tackle repairs at home. Quite likely, you will entertain projects that need to be stripped down or torn away to get down to the bare bones of things before you can rebuild, or refinish or recover or restore. You get the idea.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today your mind is so powerful and focused, you can do anything! You can study anything, you teach, you can sell, you can persuade and you can act! Remember that you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

If Your Birthday Is Today

TV host Craig Ferguson (1962) shares your birthday today. You have a sharp mind and a strong self discipline. You also have business savvy. This is a year of teaching and learning.

The Cosmic Calendar for May 16

An 11 hour void lunar dispensation in Libra—starting at 2:39 a.m. during a moon square to Pluto and concluding at 2:27 p.m. when the moon enters watery Scorpio—sets the stage for a day of mixed sky configurations.

Mercury making a dicey, 45-degree contact with Chiron (10:17 a.m.) is a reminder to look over health issues with care while a more favorable vibration for business and professional matters develops later on during a trine between Mercury and Saturn (4:10 p.m.). Be on alert for surprises appearing in key relationships as the moon makes monthly polarities to Venus (5:49 p.m.) and Uranus (9:05 p.m.). Start gearing up for the enlightening next full moon happening on Saturday.

[Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Illumination: 93%

The Moon today is in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts round 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset.

The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.
