11/08/17: LOOK OUT BELOW!!!

“If it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger.” Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

If you are looking for a blessing that is not in disguise, this is not the week. 

THE GOOD NEWS: It will get better.

THE BAD NEWS: It gets worse first.

THE TAKEAWAY: Get ready to jump; this is happening no matter what you do, and your only choices will be jump or fall.

Try to remember: no matter how bad it seems in the moment, it really is necessary to make room for something else – something better.

Be brave, be bold, be patient – you got this!

11/07/17: Bravery is required!

“This is a gift; it comes at a price.” Barbara Moore


((Queen of Cups; The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Queen of Pentacles, we have Queen of Cups on site with an important message: great rewards come from great risks – you must be willing to dig deep!

THE GOOD NEWS: The Queen opens the courage in your heart.

THE BAD NEWS: You are still on your own – good luck!

THE TAKEAWAY: Everything that is good, true, and important in the world requires sincere, heartfelt commitment.

Set aside your fears, follow your heart, take your brain with you!!

11/06/17: Own your glow!

“Let your inner light be reflected in the outer world.” Barbara Moore


((Queen of Pentacles, The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


The week opens with a warm welcoming energy; you are ready to meet new people and face new challenges. This Queen has no reason to hold back; if the sun is not shining, bring your own sunshine to your day – and do not be afraid to share with others!

THE GOOD NEWS: This is a good week for meeting challenges face to face, and with a smile!

THE BAD NEWS: Some patience will be required.

THE TAKEAWAY: Not everyone will be eager to embrace the warmth you are bringing forward – that’s okay, bring it anyway.

Light does not belong under a bushel.

11/03-05/17 WEEKEND: Start with a wish!

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Serenity. Necessity. Discretion.


(NOTE: Any time the The Star appears, make a wish!)

The weekend arrives with an amount of calm energy we will need: this is the first weekend of the Holiday Season and everywhere we look (and I do mean EVERYWHERE) we will be faced with a reminder of just how quickly the end of the year holidays will be upon us. Not to panic – the get-up-and-go energy of this week helped identify the ducks for sorting into rows – we know what to do and how to do it. All that is left is the actual doing. (Isn’t that always the way! 😉 )

THE GOOD NEWS: You can handle whatever happens.

THE BAD NEWS: Something is going to happen, and you will have to handle it.

THE TAKEAWAY: It’s not as bad as it sounds.

Always remember: The message of the Three of Swords may be uncomfortable but the heartache will heal; no one dies and you are better off knowing than not knowing. Also discretion is required; do not make a show of dealing with the disappointment – this is your business, and you can handle it on your own. 

REMINDER: This is no time to skip on your self-care; whatever you need to rest, rejuvenate, restore, DO IT! Running yourself into the ground is of no use to anyone, starting with you!

11/01-02/17: YOU GOT THIS!!

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Boldness. Control.

NOVEMBER: New month. New turn of The Wheel. New start.  

THE GOOD NEWS: You are ready to start fresh! 

THE BAD NEWS: It’s all up to you!


Nothing says “energy for a fresh start!” like the Ace of Wands, and nothing keeps that Ace of track like Strength! Unfortunately, timing is everything; the energy of this Ace is not likely to linger – it moves on very quickly – and you do not want to miss it by stalling when you should be engaging. REMINDER: This energy is all about getting started – you do not have to finish or complete your goal immediately – once you get going in the right direction, the time it takes to complete will be appropriate to the goal (as long as you are focused).

Whatever you choose, GOOD LUCK!!

10/30-31/17: Ready. Set. GO!

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Adventure. Innovation.

The new week opens with an eye towards movement, change, new pathways – perfect for the end of The Wheel and the beginning of the next turn!

THE GOOD NEWS: The time is right, the energy is right, your mind is right.

THE BAD NEWS: As always, there is work to be done, and you’re the one to do it.

THE TAKEAWAY: If you believe you can, you can; if you believe you can’t , you’re right.


As always, the decisions are entirely yours to make; if you are not feeling up to making big strides, or taking on big projects, no one can force you to invest yourself in doing so. However, if you have “that nagging feeling” it will not go away by itself – that which resists, persists – and you will likely be uncomfortable with your own inaction.

No matter what you decide, I hope you are enjoying the festivities of season.

Happy Halloween! Blessed Samhain! Happy Witches’ New Year!

10/27-29/17 WEEKEND: Is it worth it?

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Bittersweet. Dramatic. Burdensome.


For most people (in the US), this is a hard-partying secular holiday weekend; costume parties, monster balls, silly food, ridiculous drinks, pranks, tricks, treats – OH, MY! To sum up, people will be acting up in spectacular ways. 

How will you handle this crazy energy? 

ASK YOURSELF: Is it worth it?

Generally, reactions are not as good as actions; what you do should be about your own motivations rather than just responding to the behaviors of others. This will be particularly important this weekend; the foolishness will surround you, and it will take effort to avoid it.

For some of us, this is a serious holiday; we are preparing for the final turn before the Wheel begins anew – what will we look for in our new beginning?


To sum up: enjoy the weekend but be on your guard for poor behavior leading to worse behavior and unpleasant outcomes. Best of luck!

10/26/17: Love is the answer.

“I could not have made a better choice.” Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Love is the answer? But what was the question?

Doesn’t matter anyhow, ‘cuz that’s the way it is.

THE GOOD NEWS: Kindness is free – it should be no problem to share with others.

THE BAD NEWS: It can be difficult to love thy annoying neighbor.

THE TAKEAWAY: It can be difficult – DO IT ANYWAY!!!

Treat people with kindness; keep a positive thought in your head, and love in your heart. Do not let harsh realities chill your warmth or turn your sweetness bitter – IT IS UP TO YOU!

10/25/17: Dad’s home!

“…he knows there is an unseen hand at work, some universal laws that guide the workings of the world.” Barbara Moore

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


The week is half over, things are starting to look up!

Your project (which you have been working on most of the year, and you have been wondering what your next step should be) is ready to move more purposefully towards the finish line. Right on time, our own Shark Tank King of Pentacles has arrived to assist…maybe.

THE GOOD NEWS: A potential patron approaches.

THE BAD NEWS: You must impress him …and he is NOT easily impressed.

THE TAKEAWAY: Be prepared. Be brave. Bring your A-game.

This is your chance to shine – do what you can to seize it!

((NOTE: If this does not work out, don’t fret – just drop back, regroup, and try again!))
