01/19-21/18 WEEKEND: GET READY!!!!

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Romance. Departure. Achievement.

Welcome to the weekend!!

This week may have been rough for many (Winter Storm Inga ravaging the Eastern Seaboard, etc.) but the energy has been pretty good for us overall full of ideas, power, and strength. As we come into this weekend, we embrace the final lap of our New Moon intentions – we know what we want and we are committed to manifestation.

This energy surfaces smoothly and with an amount of subtlety. Water has a way of finding its own level in its own way and its own time; the path to achievement may meander a bit more than you anticipate – be patient. However, as with all Wands, when the achievement arrives BAM!! POW!! ZAP!! suddenly, completely and out of nowhere! 

Keep your head up and your eyes open; you are so much closer than you realize.

As always, enjoy the weekend!

01/18/18: MOM’S HOME!!!

Empress Steam

((The Empress (III); The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

If you have been exposed to any media source, you know Mama came home with a vengeance.

In times such as these, it is important to remember this energy, strength, and power is not limited to a mother’s protective rage. This energy creates as well as destroys. It is not enough to burn the patriarchy down to the ground if we have no plan to replace it with something better. (NOTE: Matriarchy is still lopsided; respect and equality are too important.)

LADIES: IT IS TIME TO WORK TOGETHER – ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL!!!

This is the time to create the world we want to inhabit and leave behind to our children, their children, etc. Let’s put our backs into it; no more compromising, no more catching flies with sugar, no more “oh, it’s okay, that’s just his way.’ NO MORE! NOT ANY OF IT! Find your voice, speak your truth.

REMINDER: Without question, there is plenty of guilt to go around and all guilty parties, active and passive, must be made accountable. However, we must remember plenty of people – men and women – have been activists as well as allies; we cannot tar them with the same brush. Also, and this is crucial, even as we work to rebuild, civility and kindness must continue to rule the day – otherwise, what is the point?

TIME TO TAKE A BOW!!!

TIME TO MOVE ON!!!

You have made some great strides, and you have accomplished quite a bit – you are right to be proud – but this is no time to rest on your laurels. 

This is a good time to ride your success into the next leg of your journey, whatever it may be. Grab a map and pack a lunch – you do not know where you will end up but you will likely be glad you did.

WELL DONE AND GOOD LUCK!!!

01/16/18: Check the other side!

“Why is it always something horrible?” Barbara Moore

fullsizerender-7

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Normally, when Nine of Swords arrives, we focus on the nightmare scenarios keeping us stuck in the place we are, preventing us from moving on to better things. We are focusing on attachments and expectations.

WE ARE BEING FOOLISH!

NEW PLAN: This week, let’s look at what we can change, what we can ignore, and what we can choose to see differently. Since the sky is absolutely not actually falling, maybe look up and take an inventory of what is happening; our minds are fucking with us, that’s what.

We have arrived at the important news: ultimately, since we are doing it ourselves, we can control it – we can change it. This week, let’s make this our priority; let’s change the thoughts that work against us into thoughts that work for us.

IT IS TIME TO FLIP OUR OWN SCRIPTS!!!

01/15/18: Can you hear me knocking?

“An opportunity for prosperity arrives.” Barbara Moore

AP Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

EYES OPEN, EVERYONE!!!

Not all opportunities are obvious; in the slow, quiet way of the earth, this week’s opportunity(ies) will “just be there” much like the pavement under your feet.

If you want to make something of this energy, stay alert this week; keep your eyes and ears open – you never know where the next big idea will be lurking.

Have a great week!

HAPPY HUNTING!!

01/12-14/18 WEEKEND: Think it through.

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Idea. Patience. Conclusion.

WELCOME TO THE WEEKEND!!!

I hope you are warm and well, wherever you are!

The energy this week has been largely about movement, either maintaining momentum or fresh steps, but this weekend is not about movement. This weekend is about mindfulness.

The cards sum it up simply; think it through, be patient, consider the impact on others. We have ideas – some quite good – and though we may need to move less slowly than we might like, we can bring them to fruition with planning and effort. But should we? Will the outcome be a problem for others? Not every victory is welcome.

With your very best interests (and intentions!) in mind, spend your weekend as mindfully as possible – including all your favorite self-care activities . Write down your ideas for review and contemplation (and discussion if you wish to share your thoughts with others). If you find an idea you particularly wish to manifest in your life, think it through carefully, making notes for steps you could take to move forward.  And as always, keep in mind all actions have consequences.

It’s your time – make the most of it. Enjoy the weekend!

01/11/18: LOOK OUT BELOW!!

“Get ready and enjoy the ride.” Barbara Moore

steampunk-fool_new

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

As a card reader, I have always maintained The Fool is the most powerful card in the deck; nothing can happen until he takes the first step – even the Magician must wait for him to get the party started. 

Foolish or courageous – does it matter? 

Getting started is the hardest part; the first step is the most powerful because it takes the most courage. When The Fool appears, we know it is time to take a leap of faith – ready or not, off you go! – no time to look first.

Plenty of time to look on the way down!

Be brave, keep your eyes open, pick your moment, and jump – be amazed at how much easier it is than you thought it would be. Live in this moment of courage, and know that it is not a one time event; you can find this same courage whenever you want it. The Fool is always within us.

CARPE DIEM!!!

The Fool is on the spot – take him and run!!!

01/10/18: JUMP TO HYPERSPACE!!

“I can create a universe with this tiny spark.” Barbara Moore

AW Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

ZAP! BAM! POW!

Can you feel it?

A buzzing undercurrent just under your skin? The sparks of energy making you antsy?

TIME TO GET MOVING!!!

The Wands are heavily represented this Winter, keeping us warm and motivated as we work on our individual projects. Timing is everything, and Wands are hurrying us along – it really is too easy to hibernate during the Winter – on our pathways of self-improvement. NOTE: If you are not keeping a journal, start immediately; if you are making use of the energy buzzing about, things will happen quickly and you will want to be able to keep track (and likely, reflect upon) many changes.

Good  luck! Keep warm!!

01/09/18: SADDLE UP!!

“Why are you still sitting there? For goodness’ sake, why am I still sitting here? Allons-y!” Barbara Moore

STEAM QW

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

LOOK WHO HAS ARRIVED!!!!!

All those New Year’s resolutions could use some bolstering – and here She is! The Queen of Wands arrives to give us the BAM! ZAP! POW! to help keep going on our self-improvement projects.

REMINDER: This Queen (and her energy) will not linger – She is always on her way to somewhere else. If you want to make good use of this powerful get-it-done energy, you must grab your bag and get going.

HANG ON TO YOUR HAT!!
