09/11/17: Put your money where your mouth is!

“Show him the plans and the numbers…and maybe, just maybe, you’ll find a patron.” Barbara Moore

KP Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Let’s kick off the week with further plans to further your project(s); time to invest your resources in yourself!

Are you an artist? Buy more supplies. Are you a writer? Upgrade your computer. Whatever your project, whatever your skills, whatever your practical needs to move forward, this is the week to invest your resources – time, money, engagement – in yourself.

((NOTE: This is not a suggestion to squander funds! If you have a practical plan for your project – and you certainly should have by now – you already know what you need and where to find it; your investment in yourself should be mindful.))

09/08-10/17 WEEKEND: Healing within.


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Grief. Need. Nostalgia.

Like it or not, sometimes we must step back to deal with our own healing. This is self-care; we cannot be healthy and whole if we ignore the broken pieces of ourselves. Take time this weekend to look closely at your inner needs – where are you harboring grief, pain, want?

It is time to start the process of setting yourself free.

  • There is no cure for grief; you must experience it, then let it go. There is no more benefit to resisting grief than there is to wallowing in it; you must release it to run its course, and be on its way – you do not need to keep it for yourself.
  • What do you need? Take a good long look, decide what you need, seek it out. NOTE: Do not be afraid to ask for help. If you know someone can help you, ask them to help you. No matter how bad you think it is, you do not have to be alone – help is available, ask for it.
  • Where is your happy place? What memories provide shelter to you when you need it? Allow those memories to escort you through your grief and pain; do not hide in the happy memories, allow them to soothe you as you go through your process.

Please keep in mind you may not be able to complete this process in a day, a week, a month – it takes however long it takes. Also, you may discover you need professional assistance to work some things out; there is no shame in this, and quality assistance is available in a myriad of forms – if you look for what you need, you will find it.

REMINDER: Do not forget the  other aspects of your self-care; get plenty of rest, drink tea, do yoga, meditate, eat nourishing foods, take long showers (or soak in an herbal bath), wear clean and comfy clothes. Care for yourself in all the best ways you know work for you.

And as always, be happy, safe, and well. Love and Light to all!

09/07/17: Patience is definitely required.

“A little shift in perception, that’s all that was needed.” Barbara Moore

Hanged Man Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

The Hanged Man is actively waiting for whatever comes next; it does not matter what he knows, or what he wants to do, or where he wants to go – he must wait.

TAKEAWAY: This is not a good week for impetuous behavior. Be patient. The action will pick up soon enough, and there will be plenty of time and opportunities to roll your sleeves and get things done. Just not now; Mercury is just out of retrograde – give it a few days to shake out before you push forward on projects, major purchases, and job decisions.

09/06/17: Feel the Full Moon’s Light!!

“She’s completely batty, I tell you. She didn’t say a word that whole time. Just sat there smiling at me.” Barbara Moore

High Priestess Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


The High Priestess keeps her own counsel; she will not spill her secrets, or yours for that matter, under any conditions. She can see what you do not because she has felt what you have not, and there is nothing to be done about it.

Your understanding must come from your own experiences – there are no short cuts.

TAKEAWAY: Participate fully in every moment; there is information in those experiences, and there is no other way to get to it but through it. Also, it is not enough to “participate” on a single level – you must think, you must feel, you must act. Best of luck!!!

“You want to fly the friendly skies, do you? Better get in someone else’s basket.” Barbara Moore

PS Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Eager to get moving, and completely unable to suffer fools (gladly or otherwise!) this is the perfect travel companion as you try to get moving on new ideas or plans. Since she rather lacks tact, Mercury going direct will not effect her quick wit or sharp tongue; know she is not intending to be hurtful, and pay close attention to what she says rather than how she says it.

TAKEAWAY: This is great energy for getting right to the heart of what and how to get the jobs done – capitalize on it while you can because it is also an impatient, fleeting energy.

2017 LABOR DAY WEEKEND (09/01-04/17)


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Victory? Determination. Connection. Advancement.





This weekend is full of opportunities – how will you use them?

If you are prepared to trust yourself, your partner(s) and your best instincts, you cannot lose. But be sure to start off on the right foot; choose your battles wisely as some victories are too costly to be worth it. 

Be happy, safe, and well. Enjoy the weekend!

08/31/17: LIVE AND LET DIE!!!

“What are you willing to die for? What are you willing to kill for?” Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Are you ready to stand and deliver? 

Then TODAY is your day!!

The Seven of Wands brings you the energy, strength and power to stand your ground, and  no one has the right to silence you; it does not matter if they like your message – they don’t have to listen – they can keep walking on their own merry way.

In 1992, Axl Rose embodied the Seven of Wands for everyone willing to read Rolling Stone magazine; when he was criticized, he held his ground and shared his story with an audience in Chicago. Courtesy of YouTube, Guns N’ Roses, and Axl Rose, I give you the SEVEN OF WANDS IN ACTION:


08/29 AND 30/17: Raindrops keep falling on my head!

“…the outpouring of our hearts feeds the spiritual enlightenment of those around us.” Barbara Moore

AC Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

Water is definitely the element of the week!

In every way – literally, figuratively, actually – water is pouring into our lives this week; Mother Nature is speaking to us in water* and sending spiritual awakening with every drop, if only we will pay attention to the messages.

In a spiritual/emotional sense, we are called to look into our hearts; what are the deepest desires we will find there? How will we bring them forward, make them a real  part of our lives?  Are you brave enough to find out? GIVE IT A TRY!!!

In a practical sense, our weather patterns are rapidly changing in alarming ways; wildfires (fire), drought (air), mudslides and earthquakes (earth), hurricanes and heavy rains (water). We have taken too long to pay attention to Mother Nature’s whispers, so now her messages are screams from the highest mountains. Are we listening yet? Are we at least trying to make things better?

REMEMBER: Every single thing you do helps, even if it seems insignificant. Start with some quick, easy changes: stop using plastic straws; do not leave your car running while parked; do not run the water while you wash dishes (or brush your teeth).

08/28/17: Balance is the key!

“Do you really need to do everything?” Barbara Moore


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

If we are operating within a sense of self-awareness, we know the answer is:

“No. I can only do so much, and should pick my battles carefully.”

Speaking entirely for myself, my weekend was very busy and I did not post the usual three-card reading; something had to give, and rather than provide a hurried reading, I skipped it for the better of us all.

Sometimes, like it or not, we must know when to say when.

Just as discretion is the better part of valor, we should choose balance rather than over-extension. Take a good look around; are you using your time and talents in the best ways possible? Are you maintaining an appropriate life/work balance? Are you meeting your responsibilities and your self-care?

Every decision makes a difference in your life; choose balance first, and you cannot go wrong!
