Tarot Moms – Brigit from Biddy Tarot

by Theresa Reed on February 6, 2012

Tarot Moms is a series of interviews with professional tarot readers who are also moms.  Hear what they have to say about intuition, parenting advice – and using tarot as a guide for those tough dilemmas many moms face. 

We are starting off with one of my favorite tarotists and the brains behind Biddy Tarot, Brigit. 


Brigit is a mum to two beautiful girls, Chloe (2 1/2) and Zara (7 months). Brigit is also a professional Tarot reader, blogger and author of The Ultimate Guide to Tarot Card Meanings (I HIGHLY recommend this book, by they way). Learn more about Brigit and discover how to learn Tarot at www.biddytarot.com. 

How does your motherly intuition serve you?

Brigit: Motherly intuition started during pregnancy, particularly as I prepared for birth. For both my babies, I used HypnoBirthing to have a calm and easy birth, without drugs or major intervention. HypnoBirthing uses relaxation, visualisation, self-hypnosis and breathing techniques so that you can remain more ‘present’ during birth and really connect to the spiritual aspect of birth. So, as I gave birth, I feel deeply connected with what was happening within my body and with my baby, making it an amazing experience. I would certainly call this an intuitive process as I worked with my baby and my body.

Now, as my two girls grow up, I often like to find a place of calm and silence to connect in with their individual energy and understand them for the beautiful little beings they are. I also see them as my two little spiritual teachers, who love to test my patience and who challenge me to be a better human being.

How has tarot helped you with your parenting?

Brigit:  When Zara was first born and I was getting used to life with a 2 year old and a newborn, I used the cards quite regularly to provide insight on how to deal with each day. The journey into motherhood is intense and I found that the Tarot cards gave me a vital focal point to help me through. 

I also had Theresa read for me at a time when everything felt quite chaotic, and again, it was a great way to find some peace within the situation.

What advice would you give new moms?

Brigit:  My advice to new mums is to deal with each day as it comes and to know that everything is temporary. When you’re having one of those days where baby won’t sleep or eat or stop crying, then just know that tomorrow will be different. But also remember that even the good times are temporary. It’s as if we are on a constant journey of ups and downs, but it’s all part of the spiritual journey of being a mum.

If I can squeeze in a book recommendation, it would be “Buddhism for Mothers”. This is a great book that offers help to new and experienced mums to find peace with being a parent.

And most importantly, make sure you have some time to yourself, to refresh and renew yourself every few hours or days – whatever you need. It’s easy to get caught up with the busy-ness of motherhood, but you will be a much better parent if you can re-energise on a regular basis.


A big thank you to Brigit for taking time out of her uber-busy life to chat with me!

This is a great idea for an interview series, Theresa! I really enjoyed reading your interview with Brigit. Sounds like a great natural birthing experience. Makes me wish you guys had been around for support back in the day lol. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to more.

Thanks Lisa! I know that tarot has certainly been a godsend for my own parenting issues – it’s nice to meet with other tarot moms to chat about it. Isn’t tarot the most useful tool?

Really excellent interview Theresa! I completely agree with what Brigit says about taking each day as it comes. Just as I start settling into one phase my little one develops a new skill or habit and we shift gears-learning to go with the flow has been a huge boon to me with this!

What I enjoyed most was the confidence Biddy shared about “tomorrow will be different.” That’s such a fabulous parenting skill right there!
