7 Questions with Theresa Reed + Win It! The Tarot Coloring Book

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. 

Follow Theresa on Twitter and Instagram for her daily “Six Second Tarot Reading”—plus photos of her extremely handsome cats, TaoZen and Monkey.

Top Ten Tarot by Hilary Blog Posts—2015 Wrap-Up Edition

The last time I did a top ten, it was at the end of 2012, reminiscing on the blogging year I was leaving behind.

Besides the realization of “gee, I should do that again!” I also learned that doing a top ten list is an excellent way to wrap up the year and go into the new year fresh, clean, and knowing exactly where you came from… so you know where you’re going! It was hard to choose my favorite blog posts, but I was able to do it based on site stats, general popularity, and which ones were my personal favorites to write. Without further ado…

10. Lessons from Boy Meets World and a Return to Regular Programming

Oh, reruns of Boy Meets World, can there EVER be enough of you? Me stumbling across the episode “Quiz Show” on MTV2 during a bout of procrastination yielded this blog post, all about investing time and energy in worthy pursuits (like my tarot business and my blogging) and less time used up by my addiction to Candy Crush.

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!).


Adoration and fawnage abound when I talk about the magnificent Sasha Graham. I first met Sasha at Readers Studio 2011, and while most attendees of RS have that whole “otherworldly” vibe about them (hey, we’re all tarot readers, after all!), I felt something different off of Sasha: a true sense of groundedness amidst all the psychic wavelengths. Each passing year when I attend RS, I am greeted by Sasha’s “MY WITCHES ARE HERE!” (I look forward to that more than you know, Sasha!)

In 2013, when I presented Using Tarot for Spell-Work at the evening classes at RS, Sasha was my TA which I took as a high honor. From her book, Tarot Diva, I knew that Sasha knew what she was talking about when it came to both tarot and magic, as well as integrating the two. In 365 Tarot Spreads, she only further solidified my understanding that she was authentically true as both a tarot reader and a magical person, and deeply respectful of both worlds (while still remaining bubbly and fun).

Today’s interview is the clincher: this lady knows her shit. I cannot WAIT for 365 Tarot Spells to be published, nor for Sasha to hit the stage as a Master Class presenter at Readers Studio 2016.
