Nail every Tarot reading you do – every time! – with this
complete, internationally-accredited certification training
WELCOME TO THE BIDDY TAROT
YOU ARE PROBABLY HERE BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE THE TAROT READER PEOPLE TRUST – AND COME BACK TO AGAIN AND AGAIN FOR YOUR ADVICE AND GUIDANCE.
You are about to discover the biggest reason why a complete training in the foundations of Tarot – combined with the opportunity to practice in real time – is one of the best ways to become a trusted advisor (instead of someone with a party trick).
Many consider me one of the top Tarot teachers online and professional readers pay me top dollar to learn how I read the cards. The truth is, my approach combines mastery of the Tarot fundamentals with learning to allow
your unique inner wisdom to speak through the cards. This goes far beyond what most Tarot books or programs teach – it’s a complete approach that leads to one-of-a-kind readings that people trust, rave about to their friends, and consider indispensible on the quest to improve their lives!
Now more than ever, people are looking for help finding answers
Here at Biddy Tarot, we’re very aware of the huge demand around the globe for practical and insight.
Between 2007 and 2012, the psychic service industry generated $2.1 billion in revenue (according to industry research firm IBISWorld).
Two billion dollars! That’s more than the GDP of 30 countries around the world.
Here’s another fact: according to Pew Research Center, 15% of Americans have visited a psychic for advice in the past year. What’s more, they’re more likely to seek this advice online, instead of in person. This is great news for online Tarot readers, because it means that many people are looking for intuitive advice about what matters most to them, in their relationships, career, love life, finances, and more.
Bottom line: People around the world want – and are actively looking online for – intuitive advisors like you.
So whether you’re looking to read for yourself, for friends or family members, or for paying clients, one thing is certain…
WE READ TAROT TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE
MAKE THEIR LIVES BETTER
As people who read Tarot, we want to help. We want to give people new insight into their situation. We want everyone we read for to have lives brimming with peace, possibility, and plenty. There’s just one catch…
Most people read Tarot as
a party trick.
Let’s face it: many people who read Tarot cards do it for fun.
“Here, let me pull a card for you…”
There’s certainly nothing wrong with this approach. I believe Tarot should
be fun. And I’ve had my moments of showing off my Tarot party trick,
But this only scratches the surface of what Tarot can be.
THE TRUTH IS, TAROT CAN BE A WAY
MORE POWERFUL AND LIFE-CHANGING
TOOL, FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO MAKE
THEIR LIVES BETTER.
It’s a tool for reflection.
It’s a tool for decision-making.
It’s a tool for proactively creating a life you want.
But to use Tarot as a tool like this, you must hold yourself to a higher
From party trick to trusted advisor:
Join the New Tarot Revolution
At Biddy Tarot, we’re here to raise the bar.
It’s time for more people who read Tarot to own the power and everyday magic at their fingertips, every time you do a reading.
It’s time for a higher standard for the world of Tarot.
And it’s time for people who read Tarot cards to blow the doors off the old party trick… and show the world what’s possible when you listen for new answers to life’s questions.
This is the New Tarot Revolution. It’s way more than a party trick. It’s about stepping into your role as a trusted advisor to the people you read for. And it’s the whole reason we’ve developed our premier program – the Biddy Tarot Certification training.
Nail every Tarot reading,
The Biddy Tarot Certification Program offers a complete approach to Tarot that quickly develops your competence and skill. Our one-of-a-kind certification goes beyond other Tarot books and programs.
While you’re learning, you’ll give real life Tarot readings for all kinds of people… and while you’re giving Tarot readings for people, you’ll learn things about Tarot that can’t be learned through study alone.
That’s the Biddy Tarot Certification difference.
So by the time you apply for certification, not only will not you possess a deep and practical understanding of the stories, symbols, and systems in the Tarot deck… you’ll also have the real world tools and skills to read accurately for anyone, anytime.

Success Stories From Our
Certified Biddy Tarot Readers
My biggest success as a Certified Biddy Tarot Reader so far is launching my website. I am reaching 4,000 followers on Instagram, so it has given me the confidence to set up my own business. It made me feel capable of helping and empowering others through my Tarot readings. I highly recommend it.
Faeree’s House of Cards
People recognise and respect the Biddy Tarot name. By advertising myself as a Certified Biddy Tarot Reader, my clients feel confident that they are receiving a quality reading. It’s not just a piece of paper. It’s a complete program designed to help you ultimately become a better Tarot reader – and that’s exactly what happened for me. I’m no longer just a ‘party trick’. I’m someone my clients can truly trust and keep returning to for more insight and guidance.
Before the Biddy Tarot Certification Program, my readings were stilted and short, even with people I knew well. But as soon as I completed the program, it was like a door to another world had been flung open. My clairaudience kicked in and I was able to tune in completely to my clients – even before the reading had begun. Brilliant. The support throughout the course is excellent and the ongoing networking opportunities are amazing. Do it!

Absolutely! That’s what the course is about – to help you build a personal and intuitive connection with the Tarot cards. What better way to get started with learning the Tarot? I’ve included a special “Getting Started” video series especially for Tarot beginners so that you can hit the ground running before we start the formal classes. I also recommend that you take the classes every 2-3 weeks, rather than every week, so you have some more time to get to know the Tarot cards and explore the activities in more depth. There’s no rush!
Yes. The techniques I’ll teach are more about interpreting the card than learning the meanings. So while I use the Rider Waite deck for teaching, you can still work just as effectively with other Tarot decks.
Great question. The Biddy Tarot Certification exists to hold Tarot readers to the highest standard in our industry. As the most robust certification program out there, we recommend that you enroll with a ‘beginner’s mind’ and approach your study of Tarot with curiosity and openness. We gain new insights in the Tarot every time we go back to basics.
