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.

Myth is Metaphor

Mary K. Greer’s 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card is an amazing book. Every time I dip into it, I am amazed all over again. Because I’m thinking a lot about myth right now, I read some of what Mary writes about myth and tarot. Read more about the book HERE She quotes Joseph Campbell: […]

The Lovers

It seems fitting that around Valentine’s Day we look at the Lovers card. This one is from the Steampunk Tarot. I remember when we were working on this and I kept pushing Aly to add more passion. Then I stopped pushing…because steampunk is usually situated in the Victorian era and consequently, emotions were contained and […]

Tarot Journaling and the Star

At the beginning of a new year, people often make a resolution to keep a journal. Keeping a journal has many benefits and can be done any number of ways. One way is to journal about tarot cards. In Tarot 101, Kim Huggens provides lots of great journaling questions for each card. You could work […]

Creating Characters with Tarot

We don’t always use the cards for readings. Sometimes we want to use them in creative ways or to spark our own creativity in other projects. Whether you are writing a story or are looking for a fun way to work with your cards, story telling and tarot have always gone hand in hand. Writers […]

The Destiny Self

We’ve all seen the exercises where we are encouraged to write a letter to our younger self. It’s a great way to highlight the wisdom we’ve gained and to remind ourselves that what we think is the end of the world now will not seem so horrible with distance. But we can also access our […]

Maslow’s Hierarchy Spread

From Tarot Spreads: Layouts & Techniques to Empower Your Readings Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs divides human needs into five levels. According to this theory, the bottom level must be fulfilled, or nearly fulfilled, before attention can be given to the next level. In very basic terms, a starving person is less interested in spiritual […]

A Fresh View of Judgement

In my opinion, the Judgement card needs a rename as much as the Hierophant. It is such an important card and so many people seem to misunderstand it. Probably in part due to some holdover from the Christian idea of the Last Judgement. Perhaps long ago, this card was read that way, but as our […]

Time for Reflection

This time of year, from Samhain to Yule, it is natural to turn inward. In quiet darkness there is enough space and solitude for reflection…at least this is true metaphorically. With our culture’s obsession with “the holidays,” it is easy to ignore the important soul work that is so natural to attend to during the […]
