Tarot Bytes: The Podcast

Bite-sized lessons for Tarot beginners
Created by Theresa Reed, The Tarot Lady

Welcome to Tarot Bytes – the tarot podcast for people who want to learn tarot…but don’t have all day. Short, bite-sized tarot lessons.

Episode 72: Seven of Pentacles

The figure in the Seven of Pentacles leans on his garden tool and pensively studies the harvest. Is he taking a break? Or is he just getting ready to go back to work? And what is he growing? If you have a bunch of questions about this card, I’ve got a few ideas. We’ll look at the symbols and possible interpretations in this ultra-short episode on tarot’s Seven of Pentacles.

Grab your favorite deck, put in your earbuds, and dive in!

The Hit List – Is it spring yet?

by Theresa Reed on April 21, 2018

The Hit List - Is it spring yet?
Is it spring yet?

I found myself asking that out loud after two – count them – two snow storms pummeled my hood. Now, don’t get me wrong: I love cold weather. But this? Ridiculous.

Yoga classes had to be canceled, I was hunkered down indoors, and worse yet, had to have my son help me shovel the car out of a solid block of plowed-in snow ’n ice. If you think that was a fun way to get my exercise points in, I guarantee: it wasn’t.

But now the temps are crawling up and there is sun.

I’m relentlessly checking the weather reports to see if this will continue and if my travel plans for next week will be good to go. So far…so good. I have a feeling that I’m not the only Midwesterner doing the same thing.

Because we’ve had it.

We’re weary of this endless winter. And frankly, I have paid a small fortune to the snow shoveler guys and I don’t want to pay any more.

With fingers crossed and an eye fixed on the weather app on my phone, let’s hope this is a done snow deal – and spring is just around the corner.

The Hit List - Is it spring yet?

This poor crocus is doing its best to hang in there. Hold on buddy, spring is almost here!

The Hit List – You can go now, Mercury retrograde

April 14, 2018 The Hit List

Let me start out by saying this: I have six Mercury-ruled planets in my astrology chart. SIX, people.  Which means every time a frigging Mercury retrograde begins rolling around in my orbit, I feel that sucker.
