07/20-22/18 WEEKEND: DON’T PANIC!


((The Spellcaster’s Tarot, Marquis and Murphy.))

Rounding out our challenging week, we find ourselves making serious decisions about life changes. After a brief pause to recover from Thursday’s Ten of Swords, we are ready to move on under our steam, on our own terms.

I know your heart is heavy at  the very idea – mine is as well – but you know it is the right thing to do. The time has come to say good-bye to old people, places, and things no longer serving our greatest good. Not easy but definitely necessary – time to move on, time to get going.

Good luck, safe travels, love and light!

07/19/18: Watch your back!

“Could be worse…could be raining.” Young Frankenstein

10S Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Okay, so it didn’t work out as planned – not the actual end of the world.

Be still a bit, catch your breath and gather your strength; spend a day or two licking your wounds with self-care (and ice cream? yes, please!). Do not dwell on this disappointment.

After a few days, as you grow to feel better and consider your new plans for moving forward, review your previous plan; what can you keep, scrap or change?

And as always, please know this is not just an end but an opportunity for a new beginning – do what you can to make the most of it.

07/18/18: ROAD TRIP!!!!

“It doesn’t matter which direction you pick, as long as you pick one and get moving.”

Deborah Blake


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Remember last week?

We talked about: a) preparing to go, b) being ready when the time to depart arrived, and c) going forward slowly in preparation for more rapid, committed movement.

We did not talk about the timing….it’s now. RIGHT F@#$ING NOW!

The Chariot is all about the movement – it’s time to go!

You can prepare forever but until you get moving, it has not real meaning.

You are as ready as you will eve be, so GO!

07/17/18: Better off knowing.

“Knowledge may be power but ignorance is bliss.” Unknown

3s steampunk t

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell)

Our old friend has arrived once again; not all necessary information is welcome.

Too bad for us – here it is!

Keep your eyes and ears open; confirmation of what you already feel is en route – allow your self to be relieved rather than heartbroken, since you already knew  what you knew.

What does not kill you makes you stronger, sadder but wiser, and ready for the next thing.

Dry your eyes, pretty girl – you’re doing just fine.

07/16/18: Powering up!

In an effort to make yourself safe and secure, you are actually cutting off the flow of energy, resources and people into your life,”

Barbara Moore

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Our week opens with an important caution: 

Know the difference between saving and hoarding.

We can all agree upon the importance of fiscal responsibility (and we have the weekend’s reminder of practicality in the Page of Pentacles) but we cannot confuse building a nest egg with stifling our own flow.

Always remember, balance is the key in all things – including maintaining resources.

Have a great week!

07/13-15/18 WEEKEND: Home is wherever your heart lies.


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Nurture. Nostalgia. Practicality.

Let this weekend be about personal grace; appreciate the people in your life, honor your past, help where you can.

What will this look like in practice? 

For me, it will be moving my family into a new home – our first home – settling in and putting down roots.

What will it look like for you?

Whatever you decided to do, keep an attitude of gratitude in your heart; everything you do touches others in your life, be grateful for their presence as well as gracious in your dealings with them. REMINDER: We do not love people because they are perfect. (And that includes ourselves. 😉 )

Enjoy the weekend!

07/12/18: Kindness is the answer.

“Healing brings strength.”

Barbara Moore

Strength Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Unless you have been in a coma during the first half of 2018, you cannot have helped but notice Gaia crying out for healing; earthquakes, floods, wild fires, tornadoes – a never-ending “storm season” all across the globe.


Gaia will heal herself as always she has but we need to remember, she will not heal us – that is our own responsibility. The habitability of this planet is also our responsibility.

What are YOU going to do about it?!?!?!?!?!

Allow me to refer you to the title.

There is a decided lack of kindness at work right now – it is the only answer to the overwhelming need happening all over the planet. If you don’t believe me – although you certainly should – check this out from Lady Gaga:

We are not helpless; there is always something we can do to help someone else. If you cannot think of anything, consider the following acts of kindness:

  • Donate blood to the American Red Cross.
  • Donate households good and clothing to a church. (BONUS: You declutter!)
  • Help register people to vote.
  • Pick up trash in the park.
  • Volunteer – anywhere.

If you find the above list too daunting, start small.

  • Be nice to the barista – doesn’t matter if your name is wrong.
  • Smile at people you see in hallways or pass on the street.
  • Hold the elevator when you see someone coming.
  • Likewise, hold a door. (Gentlemen, I know you may have been spooked by this in the past – if she says “no, thank you” just tell her to have a nice day. And if a woman holds the door for you, just say “thank you” and walk through.)

07/11/18: Reliable, not necessarily boring.

“I make sure we have something to eat everyday.”

Barbara Moore

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Our midweek gives us pause; we are not bored just because we are stable. 

If you are feeling a pull for “excitement,” resist it!

This is not a time to upset your own apple cart.

Be grateful for the peace of quiet you are currently enjoying.

07/10/18: And in the end…

“They lived happily ever after.”

Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

If you feel particularly blessed today, be grateful and say thank you.

If you do not feel particularly blessed, take a good look around, be grateful and say thank you. Twice.

Ten of Pentacles is all about abundance, safety, security, and comfort. No matter where you are in your life right now, an attitude of gratitude is called for.

REMINDER: The Ten indicates an end; goal achieved, time to reset. The importance of this particular caution is a reminder to live in the moment; this moment is particularly beautiful – do not miss it by looking ahead or behind. ENJOY!
