Tarot Bytes: Bite-sized lessons for Tarot beginners. Created by Theresa Reed, The Tarot Lady.
Episode 236. How can creativity be a form of self-care? Can the Tarot play a role? Authors Cassandra Snow and Siri Vincent Plouff join me to answer those questions. We also talk about their new book Lessons From the Empress: A Tarot Workbook for Self-Care and Creative Growth (my absolute fave new Tarot book!). Also: I like to say that I save the best for last. This will be my final Tarot Bytes podcast.
Episode 236. Did you know meditation can help your tarot practice? It's true. Many tarot readers are meditators. But it can be hard to know how to begin. In this episode of Tarot Bytes, Keziah Gibbons joins me to talk about the benefits of meditation for tarot readers. You'll also learn how you can use the tarot as a tool for meditation.
Episode 235. You've probably seen the stereotypes portrayed in popular media: fortune tellers with scarves in dark rooms, turning over the Death card and exclaiming imminent doom. Or maybe you have other ideas about tarot readers such as assuming they can read minds. Author Michael Herkes aka The Glam Witch joins me to debunk these misconceptions. He also gives the inside scoop about his newest book, Astrology for Witches: Enhance Your Rituals, Spells, and Practices with the Magic of the Cosmos.
Episode 232. Do you struggle to learn the Court Cards? You're not alone. Most Tarot readers feel the Courts are tricky to interpret. Thomas from Hermit's Mirror has written a workbook called Awaken the Court Cards and he's sharing some of his best tips from the book. Learn how correspondences can help you develop a stronger relationship with the members of Tarot's Court.
Episode 231. Has your relationship with Tarot bottomed out? Feel like you never want to touch your cards again? This can happen to even the most ardent Tarot fanatic. Burnout or negative experiences can affect how you feel about your cards. Rashunda Tarot of Stay Woke Tarot joins me to talk about how she fell out of love - and back with Tarot. She shares a beautiful method for reconnecting with your Tarot practice that you'll want to use any time you've lost that lovin' feeling.
Episode 230. Can you be both skeptical and spiritual? GOOD QUESTION. The answer: yes. Rachel White aka The Skeptical Shaman is both (psst...so am I). In this episode, we talk about skepticism, spirituality, and how the two can go together - and should. Learn more about Rachel at her site: Totem Readings.
Episode 229. Do you wonder what your dreams mean? Find yourself thumbing through a dream dictionary only to feel it doesn't apply to you? Tarot might be able to help you! In this episode of Tarot Bytes, Mimi Young of Ceremonie joins me to teach how she uses tarot for dream interpretation.
Episode 228. There has been an uptick in internet tarot scammers, especially on Instagram. I've had countless imposter accounts - and so have many of my peers. Sabrina Scott and I talk about our experiences with online scammers - and how metaphysical practitioners and followers can combat the problem. If you're a professional tarot reader, astrologer, healer, psychic, or sacred artist, this conversation can help you navigate this rising problem. Fans, followers, and clients can also listen and learn what to look out for so they can stay safe and avoid getting ripped off by these predators.
Episode 226. If you work in the coaching industry, you might find the tarot to be a useful tool for your clients. But it can also serve you well. For example, you can sort out what a client needs from you - or you can reflect on what you need to show up as the best coach for your community. In this episode of Tarot Bytes life coach and author of Holy Heathen: A Spiritual Memoir Katherine North joins me to talk about how she uses tarot in her personal practice.
Episode 225. Over the years, there have been some common tarot reading problems I've experienced...and others have as well. Some of the most typical: drawing a blank, skeptics, vague questions, relying on the little white book too much, being ungrounded, and more. I'm sharing some quick tips on how to avoid these tarot reading problems so you can keep reading with confidence!
Episode 224. So you decided you want to start reading tarot. But before you start shuffling, there may be a few things to keep in mind. Such as picking the right deck for you (nope, doesn't need to be the RWS), cleansing, calibrating your cards to you, protecting your energy...and more. Lucky for you, Brittany Kennedy of Nefertiti Rising Apothecary is sharing her best tips in this episode of Tarot Bytes. Listen in and learn how you can get started on the right foot!
Episode 223. If you want to feature guests on your tarot podcast or live stream, you need to know how to conduct a great interview. Onareo has a knack for getting people to open up and talk. In this special episode of Tarot Bytes you'll learn how he prepares for an interview, selects guests, and shines the spotlight on them. We also talk about originality and kindness - two things to keep in mind when you're hosting anything featuring authors, artists, and tarot folks.
Episode 221. Crystals, tarot, astrology, yoga...these wellness practices seem to be getting hotter by the minute. But for too long, the metaphysical industry has been centered around white, cis-gendered, able-bodied, heteronormative folks. Thankfully, that is changing. People want inclusivity - and when it happens, communities thrive. While there is more diversity than ever before, we have a very long way to go. Artist Krystal Banner joins me to discuss why representation matters in wellness practices - and what we can do to make sure everyone gets a seat at the table. We also discuss her new Absolute Affirmations deck, one of my fave new spiritual tools.
Episode 220. Tired of the same-old-same-old tarot spreads? In this episode of Tarot Bytes musician and tarot deck creator Cat Pierce joins me to talk about how to bring new spreads into your practice. She also gives the inside scoop on how she created her deck, The Wandering Star Tarot (one of my new faves!)
Episode 219. The Major Arcana is associated with the bigger picture and spiritual lessons. In a way, it can be compared to The Hero's Journey, a myth about a hero who embarks on a journey and must overcome challenges along the way. This transforms them on a deep level. Tarot reader Maisy Bristol joins me to talk about the hero's journey in the tarot cards.
Episode 218. How do you know if your angels are trying to communicate with you? Can tarot help? Best-selling author and angel communicator Radleigh Valentine joins me to teach about angels, signs, and blessings. He also talks about his new tarot deck, Guardian Angel Messages Tarot. Our conversation will leave you feeling enlightened and inspired!
