The 2020 Readers Studio Presenters!
Barbara Moore: At a party someone put a tarot deck in Barbara's hands. She's held on tight ever since. Her life has been a crazy-quilt of experiences—beauty school drop-out, theatre geek, stay-at-home wife, history student, editor, academic, Catholic, fundamentalist Christian, Methodist, Nothing, Everything, pagan, shaman, wild sufi—and tarot helps her make sense of the eclectic soup that has been her life.
Not that she wants to make too much sense of things, at least not anymore. Not so very long ago, structure, logic, and a thirst for Absolute Truth drove her life. Now that age is mellowing her, rounding her sharp edges, she is learning to love dancing with mystery, sitting quietly in silence, and admitting that the conscious mind doesn't have to understand something for it to be valuable.
When not pondering the meaning life, Barbara plays with tarot cards, sometimes even writing books, designing decks, and teaching. She's been Llewellyn's tarot acquisitions editor for almost 20 years and loves helping bring exciting new tarot decks and books to life.
Barbara has worked on 39 projects to date, with more to come! Some of her favorites include…
Llewellyn's Classic Tarot
Barbara lives in Potter Valley, California with her wife, Dylan. She loves cake, art supplies, summer, traveling, and good books, which are also a few of the things that convince Barbara that the Divine loves us and wants us to be happy.
