04/05/18: Thank goodness that’s over!

“Probably no one is going to be literally stabbed.”

Barbara Moore

10S Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

THE BAD NEWS: This is not at all what we wanted, and it sucks.

THE GOOD NEWS: At least it’s over.

TAKEAWAY: You win some, you lose some, and along the way, you learn things.

Not all of our plans will work out as we intend but that is okay – we are not meant to have every single thing we want. However, we are meant to learn how to roll with the punches; we must learn to win as well as lose graciously…and that takes practice.

PRESCRIPTION: Take a night off – employ your most indulgent self-care methods – get a good night’s sleep. Tomorrow, you roll up your sleeves and get right back on the horse!

04/04/18: Fresh start, fresh ideas

“By establishing an expectation of the way things are supposed to be, we usually create our own problems.”

Barbara Moore

AS Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

We have discussed the importance of positive self-talk (more importantly, the absence of negative self talk), keeping an overall positive attitude, and staying on top of self-care. We often need reminders of these simple ideas.


Our handy reminder for the hectic mid-week; patience with yourself is a big factor in success this week. Do not allow negative thinking patterns to get in your way. Just as we so often tell children, “When you are stuck, and don’t know what to do, try something new.”

REMINDER: Keeping a positive attitude is easier when you keep up with self-care. Take good care of yourself – you cannot pour from an empty cup.

04/03/18: Trust the process.

“We have our methods. The proper procedure must be followed.”

Barbara Moore

6P Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

This card sends two clear visual messages:

  • Knowledge is worth its weight in gold.
  • It pays to be precise.

Both message bolster your patience this week; this is not the time to be in a hurry or cut corners – there is too much to do, all of it is important, care must be taken.

Time is your friend here; Pentacles are always slow moving so taking your time to do it right is not only encouraged but supported.

Put your best foot forward and trust the process – it is working for you.

04/02/18: Semper Paratus!

“Because adventure always awaits, and so I am always prepared.”

Barbara Moore

PgP Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


The first week of April; the beginning of the second Quarter, Spring lurking about, and Aries well underway – everything is moving, shaking and rolling.


I will not re-hash previous readings urging you to get a move on; instead, I will remind you that no one is better prepared to move forward than the Page of Pentacles – not only is she ready for adventure, she is ready to go on an adventure – her bags are packed, she has an ancient map as well as the most modern GPS, and every leg of the journey is meticulously planned. She is good and ready RIGHT NOW!

Do not squander this powerful, practical, GET-IT-DONE energy. The Page of Pentacles will linger a bit while you gather your resources and courage (unlike the Wands Court – they won’t wait for you to put your pants on!) but do not tarry as it will not wait long. The game is definitely afoot and you must get going.

03/30-04/01/18 WEEKEND: Swords up!


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell.))

Anxiety. Contemplation. Bravado.

Feeling a bit edgy? A little too much anticipation energy?

Perhaps not quite yourself?

You are not imagining it; the astro-weather is swirling around, and we have a second Blue Moon this year (check out Ruby’s Readings and Atlas Astrology for details), all working together to make us feel as if our own skin isn’t quite the right size.

THE BAD NEWS: Everyone is on edge.

THE GOOD NEWS: It’s time to move!

April is a big action month this year; Winter is done and it is time to move forward in all the new, different, and interesting ways – every project, every idea, every plan,  – get a move on because THE TIME IS NOW!

((And I hear you out there, “We’re not ready! What if we can’t? What if we make a mess of it? What if  the Earth spins off its access? What if the Sun dies out?”)) 

First things first: CALM DOWN!!!!!

Do not allow your lesser angels to dictate your actions with negative thoughts.

The sky will not fall because you decided to take a risk and move from your resting place. Look at the cards! Bottom line? FAKE IT ‘TIL YOU MAKE!

03/29/18: Something’s coming….

3P Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot,Moore and Fell))

I really cannot read this card better than Tony describes the feeling of impending manifestation; he KNOWS something is coming even if he doesn’t know what it is, where it has been, or when it will catch up with him.

“I don’t know what it is but it is gonna be great!”

The Blue Moon is rapidly approaching – the second of its kind this year – and it is a double whammy of manifestation energy – as I told you before, be careful what you send forth because it will be on its way before you know it….and now it is on the way.

03/28/18: We’ve got let love rule!

“Below the jovial surface, emotions run deep.”

Barbara Moore

KC Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Yesterday, we were on the look-out for worldly patrons; today we keep our hearts open for emotional connections. It is not enough to move through our lives making plans and conquering mountains; we must connect with people.

REMINDER: It’s no better to be safe than sorry!

If you are keeping good people at arms’ length because you think it is “easier” not to complicate your life, or “safer” to avoid heartache, knock it off. This behavior is not protecting you from anything, it is building walls and bolstering loneliness. If you are not careful, you will forget how to connect to others on an emotional level and everything will be more difficult rather than less.

I admit, some bravery is required….but I know you can do it.

03/27/18: WANTED: One Patron

“…a warm fire in winter, and a cool breeze in summer…”

Barbara Moore

KP Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Tuesday dawns with new opportunities to move our projects forward, and possibly find the assistance needed.

If you are seeking a mentor, a patron, or counselor, this is a good time to find him (or her!). Aries Season is in full swing now, and April will be all about moving, shaking, and getting things done. 

Keep your eyes and ears open, and be ready to sell your ideas at a moment’s notice.

03/26/18: It’s your party, cry if you want…

“Regret for mistakes made that cannot be unmade.”

Barbara Moore

5C Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Monday, again, already.

After a weekend of Karma calling, we open the new week with a sense of unavoidable regret; some things just cannot be undone, and a do-over may not be available, so this may seem an ideal time for a good old-fashioned wallow…and this time, maybe you have earned it. Feel free to wallow just a bit but be sure to double up on your self care and remember this is only a visit, not a place to live.

THE BAD NEWS: This sucks and there are no two ways about it. Call it “an experience” or  “a learning opportunity,” the bottom line remains the same – it sucks.

THE GOOD NEWS: No one dies from regret, embarrassment, or disappointment. Recovery is imminent.

Tomorrow is a new day, be ready to start the day off swinging.
