The Hit List

The Hit List – Bit by bit

by Theresa Reed on August 18, 2018

There’s an old Yoruban proverb that I read in a book a long time ago that went something like this: “Bit by bit, we eat the head of the rat.” (I believe the book might be Ibase Orisa: Ifa Proverbs, Folktales, Sacred  History & Prayer by Awo Fa Lokun Fatunmbi.) Sounds pretty gross but the proverb is […]

The Hit List – Apologies accepted

by Theresa Reed on August 11, 2018

This past week, my daughter and I were discussing the art of apologizing. It seems the Mercury retrograde had brought out a few misunderstandings – and we wanted to clear the air immediately. Apologies accepted all around. Life moved on. We’re good. Sincere apologies form the foundation for healthy relationships. I truly believe that. It’s […]

The Hit List – There are good people out there

by Theresa Reed on August 4, 2018

Last week, I had a no-good, crummy, very bad week. Like, a total suckfest. The worse part? I lost my mail. Yep, I was walking around with my mail hanging in the side pocket of my adorable kitten and spaceship camo purse when somehow the bills fell out. I didn’t even notice until I got […]

The Hit List – Helpers need help too

by Theresa Reed on July 28, 2018

I had a rough week. Like, super-sucky. It started out well enough: the husband was gone for the week, which meant I would be able to declutter and do my work in peace. I did manage to get a bunch of junk out of the house and some writing done.  But then everything seemed to […]

The Hit List – Brushes and Cards 2018

by Theresa Reed on July 21, 2018

Two weekends ago, Chris Zydel and I hosted our second Brushes and Cards workshop, a day-long painting and tarot mashup. It was fun, insightful, and a fab way to connect to the cards. Plus: a day with Chris Zydel is my idea of time well spent! Here are some pics from our epic shindig! We’re […]

The Hit List – The big chill

by Theresa Reed on July 14, 2018

Years ago, I liked to indulge in a little weed here and there. But although I liked the buzz, the feeling on my lungs….not so much. It might be that I’m a Gemini. We rule the lungs so it’s not surprising that smoking pot felt like a Brillo pad was rubbing in the inside of […]

The Hit List – West Coast Jam

by Theresa Reed on July 7, 2018

For your viewing pleasure: a few photos from my West Coast adventures in Portland and San Francisco. Other stuff: A beautiful post from Hiro Boga: How to heal a fractured society. Mars retrograde in Aquarius got you down? Here’s how to lift that energy: How to counteract Mars retrograde in Aquarius. I LOVE Aquaria: ‘RuPaul’s Drag […]

The Hit List – Truth is

by Theresa Reed on June 30, 2018

What do you do when someone continuously lets you down? When they struggle to tell the truth on even the most simple matters, why would you allow them room in your world ever again? I found myself contemplating this when I discovered that I was being lied to once again by a loved one. This […]

The Hit List – Sharp knives

by Theresa Reed on June 23, 2018

Last week, my daughter cut her hand open while trying to wriggle the pit out of an avocado. One hysterical call to her stepfather followed by a trip to the emergency room and a fainting episode, she’s properly stitched up and back to her hipster avocado toast loving ways. She’s a lot more careful with […]

The Hit List – So I guess I’m a Taurus…

by Theresa Reed on June 16, 2018

I’ve always considered myself a classic Gemini: lots of interests, a tendency towards wanderlust, easily bored, a knack for communication plus a hatred of all things pink. Yep, that’s me in a nutshell! But a while back, I started chatting on Twitter with Dayna Lynn Nuckolls of The People’s Oracle about Sidereal Astrology. I had […]
