The cards advice you to take a step back, assess the situation and do not start anything new until and unless you have a plan to proceed and are sure of the outcome. It is better to be cautious than to repent later. If you have a new idea, make sure that you are not tempted to start any new project before you have finished the previous one. Please ensure that you tie every loose end before you finish a task. A new development or good news is also around the corner.

This is also the time when you will be able to differentiate between your true and false friends. Also you will be able to trust your own self and take charge of your life yourself. Remember that you have to fight your own battle in this world. The cards also suggest that you have full potential to be successful and you do not need to depend on anyone else to be successful. Trust yourself, work hard, work independently and you will be able to achieve great laurels for yourself.
Lucky Number: 5
Lucky Color: Pearly White
Pisces (February 20 to March 20)
Dear Piscean, this year you might feel restricted or powerless. It is important for you to understand that your restrictions are self-imposed restrictions. You can easily free yourself from any compulsion if you really wish to. You are only sabotaging your own chances of moving on by remaining restricted. Instead of being a victim of your own situation or waiting for someone to rescue you, it is better that you find clarity within yourself and escape from the situation at hand. The cards also advice you not to remain blind to situations and think clearly for yourself. The time is also opportune for you to move on. A change of scene is recommended. Plan for a vacation so that you come back fresh and rejuvenated.
Lucky Number: 8
Lucky Color: Black and purple

In a recent interview with the illustrator of a new Steampunk themed Tarot card reading deck, inventor of the unique new Tarot Card deck Barbara Moore discusses her roots in Tarot and how the new deck came about.
As recently reported by westword.com, Barbara Moore discusses her inspiration for the deck and Tarot roots.
Westword: How did you first get into Tarot and what has your journey in that aspect of life looked like?
Barbara Moore: In college, at a party, a friend brought out a deck and I fell in love without really knowing what it was. I was working on my history degree with a focus on the Middle Ages and Renaissance, with additional interest in art, mythology, and psychology, so the tarot was a perfect blend of my degree. That was over twenty years ago.
In the beginning, I studied on my own, buying books and experimenting. The Internet wasn’t what it is now. Later, when I moved to Minnesota, I got a job with Llewellyn Publishing, a company that publishes tarot decks. Over the years, I worked with them to create a job focused specifically on their tarot line. Working on helping other projects come to life and reach bookstore shelves has been satisfying. Later, I had the opportunity to work on my own projects.
I currently do project development for Llewellyn and Lo Scarabeo, an Italian tarot publisher. In addition, I continue to write books, design decks, do readings, and teach. One of my favorite things is speaking at conferences. It combines some of my favorite things: tarot, travel, and meeting other tarot lovers.
Can you talk about the decision to come out with a Steampunk deck?
About five years ago, I bought a necklace through Etsy. It was a cool combination of Victorian and some sort of futuristic yet retro feel. It was a look that I always liked but didn’t know was an actual look, if you know what I mean. The necklace was tagged with the descriptor “Steampunk.” A few Google moments later, I understood. “So what I like has a name!”
All excited, I told a colleague (Andrew, who is mentioned in the book’s dedication) about it. As we discussed the themes of Steampunk, he said, “you should make a Steampunk tarot.”
How did you go about deciding how to draw this deck — the suits and the major arcana?
You mean, how did I decide about the art direction, right? Because I didn’t draw it. I designed it. British artist Aly Fell is the artist who worked with me.
I didn’t want this to be just a novelty deck. I wanted it to be a good reading deck, one that I would want to use professionally. Because I studied and work with decks grounded in the Rider Waite Smith tradition, that is the basis for the Steampunk Tarot.
All in all the new Steampunk Tarot Card deck appears to be very well done, and quite usable for accurate Tarot Card Readings as it is based upon the tradition of Rider Waite Smith Tarot Cards.

Rachel Adams wants to use the talent she believes she was born to share.
Adams, a mother of two who recently moved to Alexandria with her husband, has opened a fortunetelling business on Jackson Street Extension, Readings by Faith, where she hopes to use her psychic, fortunetelling and Tarot card-reading abilities.
There’s just one problem. Fortunetelling is forbidden in the city’s code of ordinances.
Section 15-127 of the city code deems it unlawful “for any person to engage in the business or practice of palmistry, card reading, astrology, fortunetelling, phrenology, mediums or activities of a similar nature within the city, regardless of whether a fee is charged directly or indirectly, or whether the services are rendered without a charge.”
Louisiana Revised Statute 4:7 allows municipalities to “regulate and restrict” fortunetellers and also says the ordinances can be enforced by fines up to $500 or 12 months in prison.
Adams and her husband moved to Alexandria in July, and she contacted the parish’s sales and use tax office about obtaining a business permit. That’s when she was told that kind of business wasn’t allowed, and she was cited by the Alexandria Police Department on Aug. 1 for violating the fortunetelling ordinance.
Adams, in turn, retained Alexandria attorney Tommy Davenport to represent her, and she sued the city to stop it from enforcing its ordinance.
Davenport said the case is pretty simple. Reading Tarot cards and telling fortunes are part of Adams’ religion, and the city enforcing its ordinance is suppressing her ability to practice her religion, he said.
“The government is not free to declare certain beliefs illegal, and the city has made it a criminal act to believe in and practice her psychic beliefs,” Davenport said.
Adams considers herself a fifth-generation psychic, and she said she was born with the ability. Her family members say she first began showing psychic signs at the age of 2, but Adams’ first memories of her abilities date back to when she was 7 years old.
My gift is to be able to help people,” she said. “People who are struggling or have lost their faith, I help them to find their faith. I was born with this for a reason.”
Adams was living in Lafayette with her husband and two children, working in her grandmother’s fortunetelling business. However, her husband, whose family owned a fortunetelling business near the South Traffic Circle in Alexandria until Hurricane Gustav destroyed the business, wanted to get closer to his hometown, so the Adamses relocated.
Billy Nungesser, president of Plaquemines Parish, sent an email to Alexandria Mayor Jacques M. Roy on July 14 asking that city officials work with Adams to allow her to open her business so that she could move with her family to Alexandria.
“Ms. Adams seems to be a person who dedicates her life to her work and family,” Nungesser wrote. “She has already found a house she would like to purchase but is unable to do so if she can not open and operate her business.
“I am reaching out to you today to ask if there is any opportunity for Ms. Adams to receive a license to operate a psychic reading business in the Alexandria area.”
City Attorney Chuck Johnson said Nungesser’s email was the first time city officials had heard about Adams or her plans to open a business in the city. When she was prevented from proceeding as she planned, Johnson said, Adams’ first move should have been trying to get the ordinance amended, rather than suing the city.
“Mr. Davenport could have simply asked the City Council to amend or repeal the city ordinance to allow this form of free enterprise, instead of filing a lawsuit — which the taxpayers now have to pay to defend,” Johnson said.
“The charge of any lawyer is to obtain the lawful resolution sought by the client in the most efficient manner possible, consistent with the code of professional conduct. Davenport should have consulted his ‘psychic’ client as to the easiest way to get the result the client desired — council action.”
District 5 Councilman Chuck Fowler, who represents the district where Adams’ office is located, said he wasn’t aware of the issue and wished it would have been brought before the council instead of the courts.
Because of the threat of criminal prosecution, Davenport said, a time factor prevented him from approaching the council. Instead, he attempted to block the city from enforcing the ordinance.
During his research, Davenport said, he discovered four cases from across the country that ruled in favor of psychics being able to practice a religion. He provided those cases to the city’s attorneys, he said, and two hours later the criminal charges against Adams were dropped.
Davenport is hoping that’s a positive sign for Adams’ case, and he expects that Johnson will either instruct the council to overturn its ordinance or he will get a favorable ruling in federal court.
Adams, too, believes she will win her case and eventually be able to practice her craft in Alexandria.
“I do really believe this is going to go in my favor,” she said.
It’s not about money for Adams, though she does charge a nominal fee for her services. Instead, she said, it’s about serving people who are in need and look to her for help — whether that’s with financial issues, relationship troubles or other needs.
“I help to give them their strength,” Adams said. “I help them to find their courage again. It all comes back to their faith in God.”
