Welcome to Biddy Tarot’s Blog. My name is Biddy and I am a professional Tarot reader. I am based in Melbourne, Australia, but read Tarot for hundreds of international clients online at Biddy Tarot.
Biddy’s Tarot Experience
I have been reading and studying the Tarot intensively from 1997. It all started when I received my first Tarot reading when I was 18. I thought it was a such an intriguing tool and I wanted to be able to learn it myself. My mother purchased me the Rider Waite deck and I began teaching myself about the cards.
I began reading for myself and friends at an early stage, eager to apply my knowledge of the cards. In June 1999, I began reading on the Free Reading Network, a website which offers free three card readings to the public. In April 2000, I also began reading for the Free Tarot Network, offering one card readings. And, for over a year, I provided free Tarot readings and advice at askme.com. I now offer free Tarot readings via the World Tarot Network.
In 1999, I also established biddytarot.com and began offering professional Tarot readings. Since this time, I have had hundreds of clients, many of whom return regularly for further Tarot readings, very satisfied with my ethical and accurate approach.
In addition to reading the Tarot, I have been an active member of the Tarot community, particularly online. I was a mentor on the Free Tarot Network and Free Reading Network, coaching around 8 to 10 students of varying experience. I was also the Free Tarot Network and Free Reading Network Manager, managing over 150 readers and 30 mentors. In this role I was able to give the Networks strategic vision and mplemented numerous different initiatives, such as a mentor manual, to improve the Network experience.
Lastly, I am certified professional member of the Australian Tarot Guild and a past member of the American Tarot Association (ATA)
Biddy’s Tarot Philosophy
We all expect different things from the Tarot. Some expect the future to be predicted, some expect insights to be given, some expect simply to become more self-aware. No expectation is entirely wrong nor entirely right. But, in order for the Tarot to be helpful, it is important that your expectations of what the Tarot has to offer is somewhat similar to the reader’s philosophy on the Tarot.
I see the Tarot as a tool to guide us on our paths. Often we know the answer to our problem, but we simply need confirmation from an outside source. The Tarot can offer this. Additionally, the Tarot helps us focus on what is important right now. Perhaps we have lost track in our lives. The Tarot offers that little push in the right direction.
There are also times when the Tarot uncovers some amazing truths in our lives. To be given insight into a corner of our lives that we may have not known existed is a wonderful experience.
In terms of predicting the future, I do not feel that the Tarot is a direct tool of divinitation. Our paths and our destinies are always changing by the decisions you make and the actions you take. The Tarot does, however, read on current influences which surround us and this can provide insight into where you are heading and what outcomes you could expect.
To conclude, let me share with you an excerpt from the novel The Alchemist.
“When people consult me, it’s not that I’m reading the future; I am guessing at the future. The future belongs to God, and it is only he who reveals it, under extraordinary circumstances. How do I guess at the future? Based on the omens of the present. The secret is here in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better. Forget about the future, and live each day according to the teachings, confident that God loves his children. Each day, in itself, brings with it an eternity.”
