WELCOME
Welcome and congratulations for taking the time and energy to develop your Tarot
reading skills and grow your confidence.
You know, I wish I had this when I was starting to
learn to read Tarot.
I started my studies by reading as many books as
possible, joining as many online forums as possible,
and filling my brain with as much information as
possible. I can tell you, it was OVERWHELMING!
After several years of this intensive approach to
learning Tarot, I realised that I was going about it in
the wrong way. I was trying desperately to advance
my knowledge in Tarot by cramming as much
information into my head as possible, but I wasn’t
making progress. My readings were stilted and often
a simple recitation of what I had read in the Tarot books. I was missing the whole
idea of Tarot – to trust your intuition and to go with your gut!
So I tried a new approach. I ditched the Tarot books and I learned to read the card
in the context of the reading. I learned how to intuitively and confidently interpret
the cards, not by rote learning what the books had to say but by drawing on
everything that I knew rationally and intuitively about the Tarot and about life.
What happened was amazing. My readings flowed easily and effortlessly. My clients
commented on how insightful and accurate their readings were. And I start to really
enjoy what I was doing.
So that’s why I’m here today, ready to teach you how to read the Tarot intuitively
and confidently, without having to memorise card meanings or rely heavily on the
Tarot books. I’m here to help fast-track your learning so you don’t have to make the
mistakes I made when I first started out and you can go straight into reading the
cards with confidence.
Here’s to the beginning of an amazing journey with Tarot!

[MODULE 1] GETTING STARTED
I want you to have the very best start to the Master the Tarot Card
Meanings program. So here’s what you need to know…
Your access to the Master the Tarot Card Meanings program is via
https://programs.biddytarot.com/. Log in using the personal details
that have been emailed to you.
The program has 7 Modules. Each module includes a series of video
lessons, a workbook, and bonus materials to help you master the Tarot
card meanings.
For each Module, watch the video lessons, complete the activities in the
workbook to embed your learning, and use the bonus resources to
deepen it even further.
At the end of the Module, you’ll be invited to complete a short
multiple-choice quiz to confirm your understanding of the material.
You’ll need a 75% pass rate to be awarded a Certificate of Completion
for the program, and you have two turns to pass the quiz.

MASTER THE TAROT CARD MEANINGS
The program has been designed for self-paced learning – you can take
it as fast or as slow as you wish. That said, I recommend completing
one Module per week to keep up the momentum and to ensure you
complete the program.
If you’re looking for community support during the program, then I
recommend the Biddy Tarot Community. Inside the Community you
can:
w
Ask questions, share insights and get inspired in the member-only
forums.
w
Connect with a Tarot study buddy or mentor to work through the
lessons.
w
Get real-life practice giving free Tarot readings for strangers in
exchange for feedback and experience.
Access the Community via community.biddytarot.com or join at
biddytarot.com/community.
If you need technical support, then please contact our team at team@
biddytarot.com or via https://programs.biddytarot.com/help/.
I also recommend the Biddy Tarot guides to support your learning
throughout this program. The Ultimate Guide to Tarot Card Meanings,
the Companion Workbook and Tarot Foundations: 31 Days to Read
Tarot with Confidence have been specially designed to help you learn
Tarot quickly and easily.
The Ultimate Guide to Tarot Card Meanings can be used during the
course as an easy reference guide for the Tarot card meanings. For
example, before we review the Tarot cards in an upcoming class, you
might want to read about each one in the Guide. Of course, I want you
to be able to create your own meanings, but sometimes it helps to
have a starting point, and that is what The Guide offers you.

[MODULE 1] GETTING STARTED
The Companion Workbook is an excellent way to keep track of the
different Tarot card meanings you create as you progress through the
course and as you develop a deeper and more personal understanding
of each Tarot card. Record your ideas and notes in this editable PDF.
And finally, Tarot Foundations is like your ‘textbook’ for the course.
While all the class activities are contained in this Workbook, I also
recommend that you refer to the relevant sections in Tarot Foundations
for additional tutorials and learning activities. It’s perfect for when you
want to understand a particular topic in more detail or want to take
your Tarot studies further.
Go to http://www.biddytarot.com/tarot-guides/ to purchase my Tarot
Guides if you do not have them already.
Finally, I use the Radiant Rider Waite deck throughout this program.
You can purchase the deck through Amazon.com via www.biddytarot.

If you prefer to use a different deck for the program, that’s OK too. As I’ll
be teaching the techniques to interpret any Tarot card, you’ll be able to
apply these to your preferred deck. That said, you’ll find it easier if you
work with a deck that is based on the Rider Waite deck, rather than
one that is completely different.
