Tarot for Radical Times

Immerse in the Tarot’s wisdom with Theresa Reed

Tarot for Radical Times

Theresa Reed (aka “The Tarot Lady”) is a world-renowned Tarot expert who has been reading Tarot—and teaching Tarot to curious students—for close to 30 years. Theresa picked up her first deck at age 15, started doing readings for herself and her sister (primary topic: cute boys!) and has been Tarot-obsessed ever since.

She is the author of The Tarot Coloring Book (Sounds True Publishing) and the creator of several classes for Tarot newbies. Students call her lessons “brilliant” and “practical” and Mary Greer, one of the world’s foremost Tarot scholars, calls her “modern, no-nonsense, street-savvy with a generous and soulful heart.”

When the noise of the outside world is so loud, Tarot can help you hear your intuition amidst the din. In this episode, Theresa guides us how to work with the Tarot to make sense of the times we’re in.

In this episode, you’ll hear about:

  • The astrological markers of volatile times
  • How Tarot helps you be more conscious around decisions
  • Flipping the narrative about “negative” cards
  • Reshaping a certain four-letter word
  • Why the Sun card is Theresa’s favorite
  • Can 78 cards really cover the entire human experience?
  • How to start reading the Tarot
  • When “should” you become a professional reader?
  • What makes a good mentor or teacher?
  • Upcoming goodies from Theresa
  • A surprise announcement about what’s next at Wild Playground

Getting to Know Tarot by Theresa Reed

  2. Pick one card a day, look at the card, what does image tell you? Jot a few notes down.
  3. Reflect on the card at the end of the day.
  4. How did it apply to your day (or not)?
  5. What new insights are you gleaning from it?
  6. What is it telling you about how you showed up today?
