Tap into your "sixth sense" and become a better, more confident tarot reader.
Most all tarot books present card-by-card interpretations as well as an instruction on how to read spreads. This book takes the next logical step inward by presenting the art of reading in a workbook format, and helps you learn to interpret the cards intuitively.
The book falls into two parts. The first part concerns learning about the cards, and includes exercises for each card that teaches you to trust your interpretation of the card. The second part helps you develop that ability, a skill that Reed calls “intuition.” All the exercises, stories, card meanings, and techniques really serve one purpose: to go beyond learning Tarot to living it.
It’s not enough to memorize the meanings of the cards, and you can’t do a reading with a workbook at your side forever. In order to deliver a meaningful, accurate tarot reading, you need to hone your intuition. Without a comfortable connection to your sixth sense, the tarot readings lack finesse and becomes nothing more than cookie-cutter interpretations. When you’re fluent in your intuition, you can develop better readings and unique interpretations for each person.
In this book, Reed teaches by example. She presents the basics of intuitive tarot reading—reading without any questions, any backstory, anything to go on. This book is filled with exercises to hone your intuition and sharpen your interpretation skills.
“Intuitive readings seem like something you should just be able to do, right? Intuition comes from within, after all. The problem comes when we start second-guessing ourselves. Theresa Reed takes you by the hand in her new book, Tarot: No Questions Asked. Every time you start to doubt yourself, Theresa will take your hand and lead you through the numbers, symbols and meanings of these cards that have become her life. She's going to help you answer every question you have so that you can trust your intuition completely, and use the cards with confidence. Everyone wants to learn from a master, right? Here's your chance.” --Melissa Cynova, author of Kitchen Table Magic, Kitchen Table Tarot, and Tarot Elements
“Theresa Reed nails the essential beginner's quest to move from learning to actually reading for others. Her approachable point-of-view allows the reader to dive into each card in a very tangible way. I particularly like how she sprinkled her own personal experiences, good and bad, to create an authentic book on how to read the Tarot cards. She doesn't hold back in offering her knowledge which, with her many years as a professional reader, has the depth that so many other books lack. I would recommend this book to my own students as well as anyone looking to gain experiential practice with Tarot.” —Arwen Lynch, The Professional Joy Seeker, Tarot By Arwen
"Theresa Reed once again goes above and beyond with No Questions Asked. This book promises to walk us through reading tarot when there's no specific question in mind and it absolutely comes through on that promise. That alone would have been satisfying enough. Instead of leaving us satisfied though, Reed dives into helping us deepening our intuition, tarot exercises that will be brand new to many readers, and then tops it off with a section on how to take our tarot skills to a professional level in a book that is as warm and friendly as it is informative. Reed leaves us feeling ecstatic and excited for our tarot-filled lives, and left me feeling eternally grateful for her presence and work in the worldwide tarot community."—Cassandra Snow, author of Queering the Tarot and Queering Your Craft: Witchcraft From the Margins
