How To Treat Your Tarot Clients Right

by Theresa Reed on June 17, 2013

A few days ago, I wrote a blog post called “How To Not Piss Off Your Tarot Reader”. I thought it was a necessary article because business boundaries are a common issue in the tarot biz world. But did you think I was only going to be an advocate for tarot readers?  Nope – I […]

The Yeah Buts

by Theresa Reed on August 15, 2012

The mature, well dressed woman walked into my office and sat down wearily.  I had not seen her in years. The last time we sat down for a tarot reading, her life was in turmoil.  She was trapped in a dead end, loveless marriage and she claimed she could not leave until her child went […]

Drive By Tarot Readings

by Theresa Reed on May 30, 2012

I am a woman of few cards.  In fact, I like my tarot spreads to be as uncomplicated and  clean as possible. Don’t get me wrong – complex layouts have their place.  But there is something about a simple spread that is so direct and in your face.  It gets to the point quickly with […]

If you’re going to commit your time to the daily grind of running a tarot business, you’ll need to be motivated every day because it’s hard out here for a tarot pimp (and even harder if you are a tarot wimp). I look for inspiration everywhere.  And I bet you think my main motivational revelations […]

So You Want To Work For A Psychic Hotline?

by Theresa Reed on February 13, 2011

Do you remember those old informercials for Miss Cleo and the Psychic Friends Network?  It was hard to miss them back in the day as those ads were on constant rotation – especially on late night television.  Since that time, some of these companies have gone belly up but psychic hotlines are still big business.

How To Pick The Right Tarot Reader For You

by Theresa Reed on January 26, 2011

Ever get a tarot reading and feel the reader was dead on accurate?  Or how about this scenario – you get a reading and nothing makes sense at all.  Yet other people you know raved about this person.  Did the reader suck or were you impossible to read? Here’s the honest truth: not every reader […]

The F Word

by Theresa Reed on December 15, 2010

Fortune Teller. Some people in the tarot community don’t even like to say it out loud. Some are fearful that it may just stick to them like a giant scarlet letter.  If a client innocently uses this word, some readers will give an uptight lecture on how they are “not one of those” and how […]

Want To Learn Tarot? Or Start A Tarot Business?

by Theresa Reed on November 2, 2010

Learning the tarot can be a tricky and intimidating affair. Although there are many good books on the market, there is nothing like one-on-one guidance from someone who has experience. Getting help from a mentor can make the journey smoother – especially if you desire to turn your passion for tarot into more than just […]

Welcome To Your Negative Self Fulfilling Prophecy!

by Theresa Reed on October 7, 2010

The man sat across from me, arms folded, shaking his head.  “I don’t see how that can happen” he said adamantly when the cards indicated a new love possibility and a new job or promotion.  “Those cards are telling me that these new things are coming and I can’t imagine it.  I have never had […]
