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 10: The Magician

The Magician is the second card in the Major Arcana. What is he all about? And what are all those things on his table?

In this little tutorial, I’m delivering a lesson on this magical dude and what he’s all about (hint: skill and will). Learn what it means when he shows up in a reading right side up – or reversed.

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

The Hit List – Baked

by Theresa Reed on February 18, 2017

The Hit List - Baked

When things get stressful, I retreat to my kitchen.  It’s my ashram, the one place where I am totally at peace.

Yes, even more so than my yoga mat.

The chopping, stirring, sizzling, searing, whirring, and bubbling instantly chills me the hell out. In an instant, all is well again, no matter what.

Last weekend, the looming eclipse brought energy vampires and strong-arm pushes up against my boundaries. It took everything in my power to keep that vibe outta my aura. But even with the best protective measures, I found myself feeling frustrated, scared, and a little sad.

It was time to get baked. Er…baking.

So I gathered my ingredients and began to cook a weekend feast. Vegetarian bibimbap. Roasted vegetable lasagna. Tiramisu. And the kicker: Black Sabbath Cookies (from Mindy Segal’s Cookie Love).

I had been eyeing these cookies up for weeks. In fact, I intended to make them almost a month ago. A nasty cold, broken stove, and life got in the way so the ingredients sat. But last week, I carved out the time and got to work on those suckers.

These are labor intensive and the fanciest cookies I’ve ever made. They are black chocolate shortbread cookies filled with creamy peppermint white chocolate frosting, dipped in dark chocolate ganache with a tiny sliver of homemade peppermint bark for garnish.

It took two days to complete.

But oh it was worth it!

The cookies were buttery, salty, deep, creamy, minty, lush and rich. Sophisticated. I’ve never had a cookie like that…ever.

Oreos for adults.

Suddenly, the world was right again.

Piping the peppermint filling.

Other stuff:

13 iconic women who nonetheless persisted.
