This interview is a part of the “7 Questions” series. I will be posing 7 questions to people within the tarot community; whether they are bloggers, authors, deck creators, or fellow readers (or sometimes, all of the above!).
There is so much I could say about Theresa Reed. I owe this woman a TREMENDOUS debt of gratitude when I won her Tarot Apprentice contest in 2011. Tarot by Hilary had existed since October 2005: the day I gave my first ever “for pay” tarot reading. But really? It didn’t truly begin until I had Theresa in my corner, inspiring me and pushing me to take risks, go bigger, and genuinely and authentically step into my business.
Today I’m “paying it forward” by offering up THREE free copies of her new book, The Tarot Coloring Book (more about that after the interview). Here’s a little more about Theresa, and 7 questions with this tarot dynamo about her work and her new book!
Theresa Reed (aka “The Tarot Lady”) has been a full-time Tarot card reader for close to 30 years. She is the author of The Tarot Coloring Book (release date: Nov 1, 2016), an illustrated tour through the world of Tarot with coloring sheets for every card in the deck.
In addition to doing private Tarot readings, teaching Tarot classes, and speaking at Tarot conferences, Theresa also runs a popular website—TheTarotLady.com—where she dishes out advice, inspiration and tips for Tarot lovers of all experience levels.
❓ What inspired you to write The Tarot Coloring Book? Why a coloring book and not a straightforward nonfiction tarot book?
❓ Which books have influenced you the most and why?
❓ Not only are you a full-time tarot reader (a rarity), you have also been doing this for over 2 decades! What is it about tarot that keeps you coming back to it? How have you kept it fresh over the years when other people tend to burn out from this work?
❓ How do you receive psychic information?
❓ What was the most difficult part of writing this book? The easiest? Why?
❓ What, in your opinion, is the best way to learn tarot?
❓ Along with being a tarot reader, you are also an astrologer. Were there any “clues” in your chart or your personal astrology that told you there was “a book in you”?
