In this episode, I catch up with Theresa Reed aka The Tarot Lady—my very own spiritual adviser—who has consulted me for over 8 years ever since I became a coach and business owner. Theresa has played a monumental role in giving me the clarity, confidence, and compassion I needed to start and finish each year stronger than the one before.
Had it not been for Theresa’s guidance, I believe I might still be sleepwalking through life. If you’re the least bit curious about how Theresa has built and run a thriving tarot business for over 25 years, you don’t want to miss this conversation.
Plus, you’ll get a free lesson on how to incorporate Tarot into your daily routine—in the most practical way. Regardless of your Tarot reading experience, Theresa will share simple strategies and tools on how to strengthen your intuitive skills and develop your own reading style.
I have soundtracks for everything in my life, I even have one for my own book. Many times, when I’m doing readings, a song will come in my head and I use it to interpret things. – Theresa Reed
If you’re going to put out your own business, your own shingle, just put it all out. Bring it out. People want to know that you’re a human and that way they can also discern whether you’re right for them. – Theresa Reed
There are some people who are going to be looking for some hip hop, cat-loving tarot reader so you’ve got to put it out there. – Theresa Reed
You can’t compromise. If you’re being something you’re not, people smell it a mile a way and that creates distrust. My pictures reflect who I am. My writing reflects my voice. – Theresa Reed
Tarot is a snapshot showing you where you are and the potential of what may manifest. If you don’t like that ending, you can look at escape chutes—that way you can move fate in the very best direction. – Theresa Reed
Tarot is a map. It shows you what’s coming. You always have the opportunity to change in any direction. You are in the drivers seat, you can go on an alternate route. – Theresa Reed
I believe in free will. I believe in awareness and consciousness, but also responsibility—for our choices, our actions, our thoughts. – Theresa Reed
Anytime you have someone telling you ‘this is it,’ you have to really question that person as a spiritual provider. – Theresa Reed
Theresa’s quick explanation to understanding how tarot decks are divided, in summary:
- Major Arcana cards (these represent the big spiritual themes in our lives)
- Minor Arcana cards (these represent our day-to-day activities—all the stuff we can control)
- Court cards (these represent the people in our lives influencing what is going on or they can also symbolize different aspects of ourselves that we bring into the picture)
The Tarot Coloring Book:
Theresa wrote an amazing coloring book that I plugged during our conversation. If you’re looking for a fun, simple and creative way to learn how to read and interpret Tarot cards, I found this to be a brilliant learning method and an extremely affordable way to do it.
Freebies from Theresa:
I highly recommend Theresa’s free Rookie to Reader e-course, which I took the other year before her coloring book came into existence. Regardless of your Tarot experience, the free e-course was practical, easy to understand, and a whole lot of fun. Theresa is the only Tarot teacher I’ve trained with since I started my intuitive practice in 2014.
