All I can say about the benefit of taking Biddy Tarot’s Master the Tarot Card meanings class is “WOW.” This entry is dedicated to reviewing the Biddy Tarot Class and discussing how it personally changed my life.
A little bit about D’arcy Decadence
For convince sake, you can call me D’arcy. I’ve been reading Tarot off and on for the past 10 years and professionally for the past 3 years. I studied the Tarot in depth when I colored an entire blank Color Your Own Tarot deck that I found while backpacking in Ecaudor. I completely fell in love with all the Tarot as I absorbed all the symbolism from studying the images I colored. I have also studied the Tarot in classes and workshops so my foundation in Tarot is pretty solid.
Tarot for the Story Teller and Master the Tarot Card Meanings
One of the reasons why I found this class so valuable is because my goal is to design a Tarot deck to accompany my novel, which is constructed like a Tarot reading. Writing this novel has been a journey and I hope to have it ready to send off to publishers sometime this fall. The Tarot is a very intricate part of my writing and Brigit’s analysis of patterns, symbols, stories and Archetypes opened my eyes to how to deepen the hidden secrets in my novel with Tarot.
On the novel, I’m really excited. I feel my story changing because of all the Archetype and story telling study that I’ve done. Brigit actually recommended an editor who reads Tarot to help me prepare my manuscript for when it’s ready to cross the threshold form my creation to fight it’s way on the desk of a publisher. The editor and I started talking on Sunday and she said she’s really excited to work with me after taking a look at my elevator pitch and a 10 page sample of my story. Once I get back from Indonesia, the editor and I are going to talk more about pricing but I think this is a great opportunity for me to see if my book is going to hit with my target audience and give me some ideas on what angle to work when selling my story. It’s not going to be cheap to get a professional publisher to review my work but it will be worth it.
The best thing about this class was the webinars. I loved spreading out with my books, notebook and cards and diving into an hour and a half of international community discussion about the Tarot . The webinar page was user friendly with a simple, clean design. It was great that the program allowed us to watch Brigit and interact with her and each other via text. The only problem I sometimes had was that the conversation would move really fast in the text box while I was taking notes so I sometimes missed a lot of things other students had to say.
We had a great international community. We built our community on Facebook and I want to give a shout out to everyone in class who has supported my dream to become a professional writer by following this blog, supporting my trip to Bali and anticipating the release of my book. Thank you for pouring in your nurturing energy to help me grow. I am blessed to have been able to improve my life through Tarot studies with all of you .I think it was wonderful that we united globally across time zones as a community. World peace through Tarot now! ;D
The material for the class is also absolutely wonderful. First off, The Ultimate Guide to Tarot Card Meanings is a great resource for anyone interested in learning more about symbolism and different areas of life a card can express. The Ultimate Guide to the Tarot Meanings Companion Workbook is template based and allows you to journal about your discovers about the Tarot in a neat and organized fashion. 31 Days to read the Tarot with Confidence is fun book with all kinds of through provoking exercises to help tarot readers find new ways to think about the Tarot. We also received worksheets, valuable handouts and bonus guided meditations .
A note about guided meditations: I’m debating about buying Soul Meditations to do while in transit between the Untied States and Bali, Indonesia. I think it would be very interesting to use on the 2 day journey to get to Bali. I’ll let you know what I decide and of course I’ll be reviewing my experiences about the Meditations on this blog. As an aside, I think another great companion to these Tarot books is A Writer’s Journey. It’s a must read for any storyteller because it analyzes the structure of mythology. I read it independently during class and enjoyed how it ironically complimented what we were studying. It makes quite a bit of reference to Tarot, Archetypes and the art of Tarot, all very important things to understand if you’re serious about becoming a confident, accurate Tarot reader.
Not to be a teacher’s pet, but I really thought Brigit was an amazing teacher. She was always patient, sincere, kind and knowledgeable. If we ever needed help or had a question, we could always e-mail her personally. There’ s a reason why Brigit has built a six figure business out of Tarot reading and she’s an inspiration to anyone who wants to follow a dream. Many people in our class became inspired to go after their dreams as we studied. As a processional dreamer who has never failed to manifest my dreams, I love to see people be inspired. I hope that everyone who began to question their lives during our class have steered themselves onto the path that leads to the future they want.
This class started off with a bang for me. I won the scholarship to the class. When I watched my video application, I felt that I was going to win and I did. On the first day of class, I got the Magician card to describe what I will get out of the class. As the class continued, I started to see my own personal power that took me on a beautiful, crazy, ten year long ride around the globe. I had forgotten how powerful I am– how powerful anyone can become with the right amount of will power can become. Class helped me remember that important message as I can become the Magician and began to create my own destiny again.
The High Priestess became one of my teachers as I began to accept my intuition. It’s interesting because I drew The World often over the past three years and I kept asking “When? When will this cycle end”. The world is a beautiful card, but endings are often difficult, even if they need to happen. But now I see that new cycle is beginning and all the destruction from the old cycle created a future that I looks like the Four of Wands. Sometimes the Divine sends us messages we don’t understand until we live the stories out and make them more than something that’s happening– we make them part of our lives.
This crazy writer’s journey may just be the path that is meant for me and now I’m going to follow it. I have taken a big leap of faith to travel half way across the world to Bali but I was inspired to go by this class and I feel that my life is about to change in a very, very positive way Honestly, going to Bali is one of the most beautiful, exciting, frightening things that I have done in a long time but the cards all tell me that the outcome will bring the 9 of Pentacles, the 10 of Cups, the 10 of pentacles, and the Sun– abundance, abundance, abundance!
I am so thankful for this class. I feel good about the direction my life is heading in and I feel this class helped me tremendously in so many different ways. Thanks to Brigit, Kim and all my wonderful class mates. I hope I can join you for the next class, ❤
“Things have been tough lately for dreamers. They say dreaming is dead, no one does it anymore. It’s not dead it’s just that it’s been forgotten, removed from our language. Nobody teaches it so nobody knows it exists. The dreamer is banished to obscurity. Well, I’m trying to change all that, and I hope you are too. By dreaming, every day. Dreaming with our hands and dreaming with our minds. Our planet is facing the greatest problems it’s ever faced, ever. So whatever you do, don’t be bored, this is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are just starting.” — fom the film, Waking Life
