03/23-25/18 WEEKEND: Karma calling!


((Ten of Swords, Two of Swords, Justice. The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Surrender. Armed. Consequences



Chickens are arriving by jet plane this weekend, and they are ready to roost!

If you have not noticed (and good for you if it has not been at your heels!), Mercury Retrograde (MRx) has particularly sharp teeth this trip, and it promises to wreak an amount of havoc in our personal lives. 

THE BAD NEWS: We will have opportunities to deal with a feisty Karma.

THE GOOD NEWS: Nothing lasts forever, and we are well-armed for the battle.

Don’t fret – it won’t help!

Unfortunately, we have no choice but to face the consequences of our actions. Fortunately for us, physics are fairly simple – every action has an equal and opposite reaction – and our consequences are proportionate.    

REMINDER: Self-care will be extremely important this MRx season so be sure to put yourself first – drink the green tea, eat the ice cream, watch the silly movie, whatever. You cannot pour from an empty cup so keep yours filled!

03/22/18: Aho. Amen. And so it is.

“…And they lived happily ever after…a stable and abundant life.”

Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Right now – and I really do mean RIGHT NOW! – we are experiencing some extremely potent manifestation energy. If you have big dreams, strong desires, deep-heart longings, seriously commit to your intentions and be amazed.

WARNING: BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS ENERGY!! If you do not focus your intentions appropriately, you will likely manifest the wrong things – The Universe is always listening!

Be happy, safe and well – always!

03/21/18: Confidence is half the battle…

“Lack of tact may be her weakness.” Barbara Moore

…what do you suppose is needed for the other half???


What a big week for transitions; Vernal Equinox, Sun moved into Aries (from Pisces), Mercury joins Jupiter in Retrograde, and a solar storm is sending up flares pointed right at our Terra – the skies are busy, busy, busy!

No wonder we’re exhausted already!

Page of Swords arrives just in time to remind us we are ready to do whatever we want to take on…but we may need to ask for some help because we cannot be great at everything all of the time. There is no shame in recognizing for assistance.

03/20/18: Working smart, not hard?

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

Barbara Moore

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Because you know a job worth doing is worth doing well, you apply your energy to perfecting the process, and thereby the results; working smart rather than hard is always a good idea but be sure to ask yourself,

“Where is the humanity?”

I am not saying we shouldn’t try to do our best – we certainly should – I am saying we must not allow a quest for perfection to remove our humanity from our creations. It is your art, make it your way – do not feel compelled to make smooth all the edges or dull the colors for mass appeal or comfort. A little discomfort is good for us – makes us think and feel in new ways.

Spring has arrived and while you are very busy creating, remember to include your heart and your passion in your work – no matter how messy it feels.

03/19/18: Life (and Love!!) is messy!

“It all comes from the heart of your creative being; as it fights its way into this world, expect a little bit of a mess.”

The Vernal Equinox brings us the official start of Spring this week – are you ready? If you have not already started your Spring cleaning/purging to make way for the new, get to it.

There will be a great deal of creative energy  and growth upon us this week – ready or not, here it comes! – and you will not want to miss it.

PRACTICAL MAGIC TIP: Spring cleaning should include energy! Simmer (uncovered) lavender, sage, and rosemary on your stove top; the steam released will cleanse the energy in your home. Strain the liquid, put it in a spray bottle with vodka (approximately 50/50 solution), and use it to spray thresholds and windowsills to help cleanse energy as it comes into your home.  As always, be happy, safe, and well.

03/16-18/18 WEEKEND: Take time!


((Eight of Wands, Sun, Four of Swords. The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Commitment. Clarity. Respite.

Welcome to the weekend!

How will you be spending this early Spring weekend? Cleaning? Gardening? Drinking green beer?

Whatever your plans may be, make sure you include having some fun and taking some rest; sometimes, self-care must be scheduled to avoid being missed altogether.

Enjoy the weekend!

03/15/18: You asked for it!

“A reminder that your actions have created your present situation.”

Barbara Moore

Justice Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


It is not enough to know “Reap what you sow!” and “What goes around comes around!” You must also be mindful in your thoughts, deeds and words as each and every one of them is a conversation with The Universe.


If you insist on thinking – or worse, speaking! –  dark or negative thoughts (i.e. “Nothing ever works out for me,” “If I didn’t have bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.” and “It probably won’t work, anyway.”), you will continually draw negative energy and lower vibrations to you and your intentions, and your manifestations will suffer accordingly. 


Your life is not “happening” to you, you are creating it – every day with everything you do – SO PAY ATTENTION!!!

03/14/18: Seriously, LET’S GO!!

“Let’s hope he does something before paralyzing fear overtakes him.”

Barbara Moore

Our week continues with more prodding to get a move-on.

Pisces season dwindles as planets move into Let’s-Go-Get-‘Em Aries. 

Patience is thinning.

Whatever “good” reason you think you may have for not moving forward, you are mistaken – it is just plain old fear holding you back.

Be brave and get moving – the time you are wasting is not just your own!

Start each day with a blessing and make every move your own!!

03/13/18: Just pick one, already!!!

“In this moment, all possible futures exist – until you pick one.”

Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Your analysis paralysis is has become tedious and selfish; other people have decisions to make, and they are waiting on you. You have thought about it long enough. Get it together, make a decision, and move it along.

REMINDER: Not choosing is also a choice. It is foolish (not in a good way!) to allow others to choose for you; YOU will still be responsible for what happens next – it should be up to you!

Pull on your door-kicking boots and get to it!!!
