In this horoscope-filled world, we decided to do something a little different: Tarot card readings for the masses. Here you'll find a card drawn and interpreted just for you, based on your zodiac sign—and fair warning: This stuff is creepy-accurate.
Aries, you have done it again. The Nine of Cups is yours for a second time: You are a powerhouse of wish fulfillment. Welcome May's fresh and glorious start. Work feels playful. Your co-workers are particularly cooperative. Romantically, unexpected gifts are showered upon you from an unexpected person. Friday's new moon provides an amazing opportunity to try something new. Embrace adventure this weekend. Take the helm of a sailboat. Try off-roading. Attempt an activity that will make your blood race. You'll dominate, as always. Let's face it: you pretty much always get your way. But here's the rub. Are you focused on the present or does impatience obscure satisfaction? Are you smelling spring flowers or are you hyper focused on summer objectives? Are you enjoying the warm body lying next to you or is it another conquest to be checked off? It is not worth visiting Paris if you aren't really there. Obsessing over the future renders the present invisible. Your gifts and talents make the incredible possible. Focus your time and attention on everything you have worked so hard for.
Tarot Tip of the Week: Your wish is granted.
Dear Taurus, your birthday season was extra good to you this year. You deserved every last second of it. The Magician is your card of the week.

Speak to your landlord, conference with your roomies, or call in landscapers. Let them know what needs to be done. They will listen. Take the same approach in your love life. State your needs. Articulate your desires. If someone is bringing you down, if they choose to wallow, let them. It's their choice, not yours. Don't let someone else punish you with their decisions. Go your own way. You deserve a good time. You've earned it. On the work front, your wattage has been turned way up. Expect to be singled out and recognized. State your limits ahead of time to avoid being assigned extra work. Consider the fresh shiny year stretching in front of you—it's as full of possibility as Friday's new moon. Make a wish.

You can allow the energy and enthusiasm of others to inspire. You'll arrive at places you never would have found on your own. Friday's new moon provides a blank slate opportunity—it's an especially powerful time to work on long-term project: anything from home improvements to fertility treatments.

The Lovers card also implies an important choice. Remember that every action, even inaction, holds consequence. The present choices you are making should support the future you desire. If something is not serving your higher good, choose to let it go. How can you tell if a choice is in your best interest? Weight the pros and cons. Envision where you want to be.

An explosive situation reveals vulnerability. But the turmoil acts as realignment for things that weren't working well to begin with. Welcome all changes. Sometimes, wish fulfillment, our dream job offer, or a new love, causes tumult. The employment opportunity of a lifetime arrives—but they want you to relocate to Tokyo. You fall madly in love—but with your best friend's ex-boyfriend. It's fascinating to see what unexpected ramifications our dreams hold when they are granted.

All of these options are at your fingertips. Selection, though, is key. Laser focus on what you want and it will be yours. Romantically, Friday's new moon provides the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and begin again. The new moon is dark and Scorpios thrive in dim, hidden places. Bring someone into your darkness and reveal yourself to them. Scorpio, you stand at the halfway point of your birth year. Look across the calendar: There's Halloween, six months away, temping you with tricks, treats, and mystery. Work with Mars retrograde—not against it—as May begins.
