04/26/18: CHEERS!

“The differences make the whole experience richer.”

Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


Take some time with friends today (or this weekend), share thoughts and ideas, old and new.  Three of Cups is a convivial energy that can be inspirational as well.

  • Who better to sort out our ideas than our closest friends?
  • Who else to help hatch a plan, than our cohorts? 
  • Who understands our thoughts well enough to help expand them to purpose?

We need our friends! And now is a great time to draw them near, have some fun, and talk all about all the things. Enjoy.

04/25/18: Say it again. I dare you.

“Don’t mind the sword, it’s just part of the outfit.”

Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Please take a moment to inspect the lovely woman on the card above; I am reminded of Gal Godot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman – even in stillness, you see she is much more than you thought.

That’s the Queen of Swords every day of the week, and twice on Sundays! 

Do not underestimate this energy; it may be still and quiet but so are most dangerous creatures before they strike.

This is not the time to be careless with your thoughts, words, or deeds.

Do not tread, do not trespass, do not disrespect.

Consider yourself warned.

PRACTICAL MAGIC TIP: Need a little help to think clearly, improve your focus before you speak? Rosemary is your best friend. You can cook with it, keep a plant on your desk, plant it outside your garden gate, add it to your shampoo, use the essential oil in a diffuser, keep a sprig in your pocket or lapel. This powerful herb is one Nature’s heavy lifters; it protects, purifies, sharpens and provides clarity.

04/24/18: Love is worth the risk.

“My heart is a stern mistress…I gladly follow her wherever she leads.”

Barbara Moore

“Once had a love, it was a gas…soon turned out, had a heart of glass.”

Blondie, Heart of Glass

I don’t know about you but I have been tricked by love more times than I care to count.

Oh, sure, I know, “That wasn’t love.Etc, Etc, Etc.” 

But frankly, what you feel is what you are; if you feel you are in love, you are in love.  Unfortunately, and as we all know, our own hearts only speak for us; we may very well be in love but the other party is certainly at liberty to feel otherwise. 

Yeah, I know, damn and drat on that as well.

THE TAKEAWAY: Be mindful of where your heart leads you this week; everything that feels good is not necessarily good for you.

REMINDER: Some caution is advised but hard-heartedness is not.

04/23/18: Practically perfect in every way!

“The quest for perfection can be exhilarating. Exhausting but exhilarating.”

Barbara Moore

8P Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


Our week opens with a perfect Taurus reminder:

The harder you work, the luckier you are. 

The pursuit of perfection is important to Taurus but maybe not always in their best interests – it can be not only exhausting but also fruitless and demoralizing – and so we are reminded the importance of picking our battles.

Saturn and Pluto are doing the retrograde dance and we may find ourselves feeling a bit sluggish as we try to sort things out and get things done; Taurus is not a quick moving energy (such as you feel with Aries) so the reduced pace will not be so bad and the retrogrades provide ample opportunity to take a sharp look at what you are pursuing, how you are pursuing, it, and maybe thinking it is time to let go of some things. (Taurus can be great hoarders – letting go is not what they do best – so this new confluence of energy may prove very useful.)

PRACTICAL MAGIC TIP: Consider starting your week off by taking a bag full of stuff you do not need or use, and donate it to your local church or shelter. As you drop the bag off, say/think clearly and specifically, “I release that which does not serve me. I make room in my life to hold space for anyone who needs it, starting with myself.”

04/20-22/18 WEEKEND: Make it so!


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Power. Chaos. Creation.


Welcome to the weekend!

After a week of false starts (Winter, you are drunk – go home! Spring, you are lost – turn on your GPS!), head-colds, MRx zinging us on the way out of town, this has been a rough week for a great many of us.

We are ready for the weekend.

THE TAKEAWAY: We are ready to spend whatever loose Aries energy is still hanging around as we kick down the door into Taurus and make stuff happen!!!

What will you make happen this weekend? It’s all up to you!

REMINDER: Tread wisely in your power as you make things happen; Magician is a powerful reminder of what we can be/do when get down to it.

Be mindful. Be kind.

WARNING: If you do not want to be pregnant, take precautions to shut that down! This is a serious creation/manifestation energy.

As always, be happy, safe, and well as you enjoy the weekend!!!

04/19/18: Slow and steady wins the day!

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

Barbara Moore

KnP Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


This Knight has been dropping in on us quite a bit this year, and here he is again, reminding us of the importance of employing our resources appropriately. This Knight always arrives on-time, never in a rush, always prepared.

FOLLOW HIS EXAMPLE: Be methodical. Be prepared. Be brave but not impetuous. 

And as always, add some faith, trust and pixie dust – it can’t hurt!!

04/18/18: ACTION!!!

“Life is meant to be lived, and that means doing.”

Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


The time for planning, thinking, talking has passed – now is time for DOING!!!

King of Wands brings us a jolt to action – an energy that defies you to sit still – and you can feel it flowing in your veins. What will you do with it?!

  • Go to yoga?
  • Write a book?
  • Work in the garden?

Whatever passion you decide to pursue, give it all you’ve got; this energy is fleeting, if you don’t move with it, you will be left behind.

04/16 AND 17/18: Here comes The Judge!

“The consequences of your actions are at hand.”

Barbara Moore

Justice Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

We open the new week with a two-day visit from Karma; She apologizes for the delay but She is here now, log book in hand and sleeves rolled up. I would say, “Good luck!” but we know luck has nothing to do with it.

When Justice (or Karma, as I like to think of Her) rolls around, it is time to face what we have done; intention, energy and outcome matter, particularly what we do with them, and we are each responsible for what we release into The Universe.

THE TAKEAWAY: Take a bow or take your medicine, the time is now; either way, learn from your experience and use it to improve your future – as always, it is entirely up to you.

REMINDER: This is not likely to be a death sentence of any kind, so no matter what comes calling, do your best to handle it with grace.

04/13-15/18 WEEKEND: Do it anyway!


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Diligence. Disappointment. Celebration.

Hard work rewarded with disappointment – YAY!

I know, I know I know, no one says “YAY!” to disappointment but on this occasion, we are good with it.

(Yes, I can hear you out there, “What?!?!? She’s nuts! What is she talking about?!?!?”)

As you may know, this is a Dark Moon weekend (the best time for setting intentions you want to see manifest) AND we are in the throes Mercury Retrograde (MRx)….

Wait for it…

Which means it is a perfect time to review the fruits of our current labors to determine where we stand as we plan to go forward. Perhaps our efforts are not quite yielding the returns we had hoped? Or maybe we realize we are not applying our efforts to our best advantage – a more even hand would be good? 

Whatever the case may prove to be, your honest assessment is due, and you will know how best to redeploy your resources and efforts; re-think, re-vamp, revise, reinvest – and reap your rewards!

As always, be happy , safe and well – enjoy the weekend!
