Barbara Moore Tarot Reader and Author
The tarot has been a part of my personal and professional life for nearly twenty years. I first discovered tarot in college. Right from the start, tarot intrigued me with its marvelous blending of mythology, psychology, art, history mystery, and magic.
It has been my privilege to work on many fascinating tarot projects, both decks and books. You can see them all HERE.
Travel and interacting with my fellow tarot-lovers is one of my favorite things. To that end, I attend and teach at conferences whenever possible, including: TABI, Readers Studio, SF BATS, and Tarosophy.
Thank you for taking the time to do the reading for me…..very insightful and has really affirmed what I thought. You’re obviously well schooled in Tarot and well thought of within the community, and it felt right to ask you in particular for a perspective on my current dilemma. ~Neil M, UK
In many ways, my tarot readings are like weather forecasts. By doing a reading, I can help clients identify trends in their lives. By getting a sense of the environment surrounding a situation, people can be better prepared to do what they need or want to do.
In other ways, my tarot readings are like magic spells. After establishing the general outlook of clients’ situations, we can then determine what are the best actions to take to achieve goals or even to change undesired outcomes.
Readings are just one way that I like to use the cards. They are also great tools for spiritual exploration, personal growth, and creativity. I enjoy doing and teaching journaling and other activities involving tarot cards.
An important element of a reading with me is trust. I trust you to determine your own question. I trust that you know what you want to know and why. I trust the cards to give you the answer you need. I trust that I will not judge you, your life, or your question.
How to get the most out of a reading with me Someone who knows what they want to come away with usually gets the most out of a reading.
First, you should know what you want to ask. This is sometimes easier said than done. Many times people come in for a reading because they feel dissatisfied but are not quite sure about what, or perhaps are not ready to admit the actual cause of discontent.
Second, you should have some idea of what you intend to do with the knowledge you gain from a reading. If you want to know if your relationship has a future, and the cards suggest “no,” what are they going to do with that? What follow up questions would you have?
I think that people should make a kind of flow chart of their question and map out the possible answers. That will help you be prepared to make the best use of your time with me. Of course, no matter how much we imagine possible futures, there is the chance we’ll miss one. Life can be surprising like that. So, that leads me to:
Third, be prepared to receive and accept what the cards say. I’m not saying swallow what they say without thinking. But at least for 24 hours, sit with the information. Accept that it might be true. This is particularly important if you feel as if the reading couldn’t possibly be true. The cards always hold such strong truths. My job as a reader is to express those truths as clearly as possible. Your job as the client is to listen and take this wisdom to heart. Let it nestle in your mind for a day or two. See how it feels to you. Imagine how your life will change if you accept it. What great possibilities can you now see?
