Theme of the Month of May 2015 -
A look at the Tarot Card list for the month of May for all Sun Signs will tell you that the dominant theme of the month is Pentacles. As many as 5 Signs out of 12 have received Pentacles suit Cards. 4 Signs have got Major Arcana Cards, 3 of them in reversed positions, while the other 3 Signs have got 1 each from Cups, Wands and Swords suits.
Pentacles – The suit of Pentacles, often represented by the image of coins or disks, signifies the element of Earth in a Tarot deck. The Cards in the Pentacles suit are obvious representations of the material aspects of life, including senses, food, finances, money, investments, possessions, tangible stuff, trade and work. They are also known to indicate the external level of consciousness in a person's life, and thus signify areas like career, health, creativity to some extent, will to work, esteem, status etc. This suit is typically associated with the Earth Zodiac Signs Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo.
Since, Pentacles appear predominantly in May's Sun Signs' reading, we can assume that most people shall be focussed on their material goals, financial matters and career/ work aims at this time. In its negative interpretation, this may also indicate that the world's focus, broadly, shall now be on material and external stuff, selfish needs and worldly desires, rather than deeper, more profound areas.
