Barbara Moore

The tarot has been a part of Barbara Moore’s personal and professional lives for over a decade. In college, the tarot intrigued her with its marvelous blending of mythology, psychology, art, and history. Later, she served as the tarot specialist for Llewellyn Publications. Over the years, she has been active in the American Tarot Association and has spoken at tarot conferences around the United States. Barbara’s articles on the tarot have appeared in several tarot publications and in Llewellyn Publications New Worlds of Mind and Spirit magazine. She has also sat on the Tarot Journal editorial board. Barbara’s own education in the tarot has been and continues to be broad and enlightening. She has studied under renowned tarot scholars Mary K. Greer and Rachel Pollack, and she has taught the tarot to all manner of would-be tarot readers.

Barbara enjoys the challenge of giving a voice to tarot cards and oracle decks. She has had the good fortune to write books for several decks, including A Guide to Mystic Faerie Tarot, The Gilded Tarot Companion, The Hip Witch Tarot, Enchanted Oracle and The Mystic Dreamer Tarot.

Lucky in Lenormand

Rana George’s The Essential Lenormand is quickly gaining a reputation for being a very approachable guide to this fascinating system. Her decades of experience and vivacious personality make the book a delight to read. She makes learning easy. One of the challenges of Lenormand is that the cards don’t simply have a set meaning. The […]

Tarot and Numbers

One of the many things I love about Anthony Louis’ Beyond the Basics is his overview of the historic evolution of so many of the facets of tarot. This really helps modern card interpretations make more sense. For example, in his chapter Number Symbolism and the Tarot, his explanation of how the Golden Dawn numerology […]

Using Signposts

This is a good technique if you are reading for yourself or for someone who is willing to be interactive with you and the cards. I’ve been working with the idea of adding signposts to my readings in various ways. I call them signposts because they mark something specific that you are looking for in […]

Cards of Endings

In tarot, many cards seem to share meanings, or at least aspects of meanings. For beginners this can be frustrating. One way I encourage people to work through this confusion is to compare cards with similar meanings and note both how they are similar and how they are different. For example, there are a number […]

The White Magic Five and Dime

I’ve often heard tarot readers say they wish there were more novels with tarot readers in them. Well, here’s one to add to your summer reading list, especially if you like cozy mysteries with a big helping of humor. The White Magic Five and Dime, by Steve Hockensmith and Lisa Falco, is the first in […]

Midsummer Spread

With the Solstice approaching, I thought I’d share the spread for this day from Sasha Graham’s new book, 365 Tarot Spreads: Revealing the Magic in Each Day. For each day, Sasha includes interesting tidbits about the day and about tarot, as well as a spread. The tidbits for June 20 include: “Russian witchcraft states the […]

Conflicting Information

Someone once asked me how should a beginner deal with the fact that some tarot books include conflicting information. That is an excellent question because there is no one definitive list of what the cards mean. There may be any number of ways to deal with conflicting information and I hope some of my readers […]

The Future of Tarot

Some of the technology that is almost commonplace today still feels magical and amazing to me. For years, I’ve wondered, how is technology going to change tarot? We can see some changes very easily: online groups help us connect with other readers, email and Skype and other messaging programs allow us to read for people […]

Marseille Cat Tarot

The Marseille Tarot is very popular in Europe and is now gaining popularity in the US. Some people think that Marseille style decks are harder to read because they do not have the visual cues that are found in traditional Rider-Waite-Smith style decks. This new Marseille deck features cats, which some people will say automatically […]
