"My first encounter with the Tarot was as a child, fascinated by a new age store I bought a deck of Rider Waite tarot cards with some pocket money."
I used to sit with them on my bedroom floor looking through the images, asking questions and looking up the meanings in the little white book. So much fun!
I returned to the tarot as an adult in my mid-30s when I decided to re-connect with some of the things that had inspired me as a child. This time I delved deep and it led me first to the YouTube community, then to Biddy Tarot, the BTCP and now to the point of having the confidence to start reading professionally!
I had been learning the Tarot for some months by self-study, when by chance I happened to watch one of Brigit's webinars. When Brigit began to explain the BTCP and the learning experience it could offer, I knew it was for me. I thought about it for a few days, then signed up. The structured study was perfect for me and over the months of study, I gained so, so much more than just the meanings of the cards – I also learned to read intuitively and discovered who I really am as a tarot reader.
I started using the FTR platform almost right away and I got consistent great feedback. When I finally applied for Certification and was successful, I knew I had to do something with my newly discovered talent and passion. I took the plunge and opened a shop on Etsy where I offer tarot readings to empower people in their lives.
