07/24/17: Fasten your seat-belts!

“Despite any concerns you may have, I am in control of this situation.” Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell)) 


Welcome to GET A MOVE ON MONDAY!!!!

There are places to go and things to do – believe it or not, it is all up to you. 

You already know how much work there is to be done, and you have been moving and shaking here and there but now – right now! – you are super-charged with some serious Leo energy for active, physical movement. (I refer you to Ruby’s Readings as always I do when astro weather is involved.)

Pack a bag, get a move on!!  

Distance is not as important as purpose; go across the street, the state, the country, or the world – it does not matter as long as your purpose and intention are clear to you. REMINDER: If you find yourself headed the wrong way, consult a map and change directions – you are NOT obligated to stick to a course of action or travel just because you started it.

Safe travels!!

07/21-23/17 WEEKEND: WELCOME!!

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Hospitality. Hesitancy. Craftsmanship.

The weekend has arrived; it includes some outstanding astro-weather as well as Dark Moon in Leo (for more on this topic, check out  BLAF! BAM! BOOM! KRASH!   and Leo New Moon: Bridge to the Eclipse). In short, the game is afoot at every turn – be sure to keep your head.

For many people, the weekend likely includes time spent with family and friends. Extending ourselves, and our homes, to others can be fraught with peril for the unwary; the combination of guests, social anxiety and hard work  can be daunting under the best conditions.

WORD TO THE WISE: Do not take yourself too seriously!

If you want to be the hostess with the mostest, put others at ease by being at ease yourself; stick to simple recipes, or convenience foods, and spend your time enjoying your friends. REMEMBER: Energy cannot lie! Your guests will appreciate your genuine effort to spend time with them so don’t sweat the small stuff!!

If you are not planning to spend your weekend in the company of others, this is a good time for self-care; rest, relax, rejuvenate. Any time you spend on your own can be used to cultivate some stillness for yourself; enjoy the peace and serenity of your own company.

And as always, be happy, safe, and well. Enjoy the weekend!

07/20/17: Check, check , and double check!

“Wars – and lives – are won and lost because of resources.” Barbara Moore

KnP Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

This very practical guy is here with a very practical message; slow, and steady, wins the race. Grab your maps, compass, binoculars, canteen, rations, and get moving! 

  • If you are looking for madcap adventure, this is not the guy. 
  • If you are looking for speedy resolutions, this is not the guy.
  • If you are looking for the dashing knight errant, this is not the guy.

This guy is RELIABLE (yes, all caps!) to the point of plodding but that is just fine – he always reaches the end of the line, intact and with a full report of his progress.

This is the energy you need to keep your head down and keep moving forward on your projects. Best of luck!

07/19/17: ENJOY THE VIEW!!!

“A little shift in perception, that’s all that was needed.” Barbara Moore

Hanged Man Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

It may be unpleasant but that doesn’t mean it is hurting you.

Whenever I find myself faced with something unpleasant but necessary, I find it helps to remind myself (out loud!), “It’s good for me! It’s good for me! It’s good for me!” Sometimes…it helps sometimes…other times, I just suck it up.

Here we have The Hanged Man, actively engaged in seeking a change of perspective; he is willingly sacrificing his time, and comfort. For what? To learn something new, to see something differently, to change his life.

Change your perspective, change your life.

Take some time to look at things differently; consider other points of view, and trust validity can be found in views other than your own. REMEMBER: You do not know where your next big idea will be found – keep your options open!

07/18/17: The pause that refreshes.

4S Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Here, we have a timely reminder; the current energy landscape is rather aggressive – and fabulous for getting things done! – but we absolutely MUST NOT neglect self-care.

Now through August, the astro-weather will be unrelentingly pushy; we will have no choice but to manage this energy mindfully if we do not wish to be casualties of it. As I have said several times recently, “Plan the work, work the plan,” but what I may not have mentioned often enough, “And that includes self-care!”

Schedule the manicure, program you phone to remind you not only to eat but to do so outside in the sunshine. Add a short walk to your evening routine – whatever it takes, whatever you need, build it in – no excuses! You are too important.

07/17/17: Lights… Camera… ACTION!!!

“He can make miracles happen when others see no possible way.” Barbara Moore

KW Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Our week starts off with this man of action; if you have things to do, this is the energy you want to help you get them done.

Did you heed last week’s message of intention?

Have you been preparing to move forward?

Now is definitely the time!

If you want to take advantage of this King’s great energy, roll up your sleeves and get moving;  he does NOT wait around, and he will ride rapidly out of town!

Have your priorities set, plan the work, and work the plan.

Victory is not far away.

07/14-16/17: INTENTION MATTERS!!!



((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Departure. Responsibility. Manifestation.

Because this is the same message we received last weekend, I refer you to the reading of 07/07-09/17 WEEKEND: ALL SYSTEMS, GO! for the overall message at hand. In this entry, we will be focusing on the importance of intention. And just in case you were not paying attention, I will say it again:


I understand we live in a world largely driven by results, reinforced by words and phrases such as:

  • The end justifies the means.
  • Give me the bottom-line.
  • Skip ahead to the end.
  • What’s the pay-off?
  • Results are what count.

Please do not misunderstand; I am not so naive as to imagine results are not important – certainly results are very important – but the journey cannot be dismissed, and that is where intention lies.


Intention absolutely requires decision making – you may not accept any substitutes because there are no substitutes. Your intentions are created by your decisions, and you are responsible for them. NOTE: I am well-aware “not choosing is a choice” but here’s the newsflash on that: that is the decision, that is the intention – you absolutely intended to let someone else make the decision so you would not have to – and you are STILL responsible.


Once you have made decisions, and set intentions, you must plot your course to manifestation – this is not capricious – and despite its importance, you should endeavor to enjoy every step along the way. Your journey is too important to follow blindly to its conclusion, and what you learn along the way will be invaluable.


No matter how difficult the path you trod may be at any given time, you must be grateful for every step you are fortunate enough to take. When you win, say thank you. When you do not win, learn from the challenge and be thankful for the lesson. Recognize The Universe is always listening; the more gratitude you express, the more reasons to be grateful you will  find you have.

We are on the backside of the Summer Season; the astro-weather continues to be strong, and we are headed into August anticipating both a lunar and solar eclipse – we may often feel completely super-charged or utterly at sea – TAKE HEART! There is nothing happening you cannot handle, either by direct action or laying low, because as always, you are stronger than you think. This is your time to shine. Be wild, be brave, be crazy, be happy, be safe, be well – and enjoy the weekend!!

07/13/17: Better to sit this one out.

“The game of life is much longer, much broader, and much, much more complicated than any other game could ever be.” Barbara Moore

5S Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot. Moore and Fell))

“Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.

Act III, Scene I, King Henry IV, William Shakespeare  

The cost of winning? The line of competitors seeking to unseat you.

By now you must know; you deserve a break today!

Choose self-care today; do not engage unless absolutely necessary, keep your head down, and live to fight another day. Take the day off from defending the hill – as likely as not, it will be there tomorrow. Right now, you will find a little rest will go a very long way.

Enjoy your day!
