Today is Victoria Evangelina’s birthday, and this is her birthday show.
The first hour Victoria will be getting birthday presents in a way that ideally makes for good radio.
During the second hour of the show, feel free to call in [(619)-789-6836] and wish Victoria a very happy birthday, share birthday rituals, and/or share birthday stories. I imagine Victoria Evangelina will share of herself with listeners and callers as well. So make sure to be a part of Victoria Evangelina’s birthday show!!!

So it happened that Ed was busy at work and could not be on the program. After I lost hope to locate him among the eight callers I already had on the lines in beginning of the program, there was nothing else left but to read Tarot for my listeners. And they kept on calling in and calling in: my apologies to all of you guys whose calls I had no time to accept. Two hours only seem to be a long time 🙂

My deepest gratitude to my dear friend, Tarot Master with over 30 years on International Experience Anna Cook for one of her many amazing Christmas Presents: The Pictorial Key Tarot Deck. It had its christening on this program and is indeed a no-nonsense practical deck!

As usually, Scott Grossberg’s Deck of Shadows performed extremely well and gave accurate results; its tandem with the Pictorial Key was indeed impressing!

Go ahead and listen to the episode for yourself; make sure you check out that awesome book that can change your life that I recommended to all of my listeners.

Thank you for letting me read for you and bring you something valuable,

Dear Friends!

Oh, WOW! We did not know what a present awaited us on the show with the author behind the concept and the creator of the Transparent Tarot and Transparent Oracle, our much loved Emily Carding!  Emily came to the show with the FIRST copy of just published Tarot of the Sidhe and did more than one hour of reading for our callers using all three of her magic creations.

Emily channeled and painted the Tarot of the Sidhe; the lovely verses in the LWB are pretty much channeled as well.

I will not tell you much more, though I could have shared with you why Emily’s hubby says: “hey you, it is 3 AM, GO TO SLEEEP!!!” and much more; I will just direct you to the show’s page so you can hear Emily talking about her life and art. I can only add that the show with Emily is our record show of people who listened to us live and people who tried to call in to get a reading. Our apologies for not being able to accept all of your calls; we hope to invite Emily and her decks back soon!

Dear Friends!

It is 5am in Uzbekistan and I have just finished my first ever 2-hour episode on air. Ed Peterson, my wonderful co-host and initiator of the Talking with Ed and Victoria Evangelina show invited an awesome guest for the start of 2011: Debra Clement, an Instant Astrologer with 20 years of experience and…. a lawyer. Yep, the 2011 for us started with THREE Lawyers on air doing “woo-woo” things like Astrology, Numerology and Tarot and Feng Shui 🙂 For those of you, who did not know: I graduated from Law School and worked for 5+ years in “the system”; Ed was a Law School student as well… what a life, lol

I will NOT tell you what an incredible professional Debra is. Can tell you this much though: I am arranging a 2011 full astro reading with her, and I am sure some other readings too (check her website for the full selection of Private Consultations) AND I am looking into joining her online Astrology classes! Yes, I already have too much on my plate, but Ed reassured me that my numbers say I am going to be in the 6 of Wands energy after my birthday on February 26th, so I feel confident adding some Astrology learning with Debra to my To Do List 🙂

This show was indeed special. Debra was with us during the first hour; the second hour Ed and myself were giving Numerology and Tarot readings, and it was a very soulful experience. Thank you for calling in, thank you for listening in and thank you for letting us know that we are needed and appreciated.

My deep gratitude to my amazing co-host Ed Peterson: you’re the STAR and I am looking forward to see what the 2011 brings you: after all, the card for your professional life was 8 of Clubs: Discovery, Message, Awareness, Revelation;

my sincere THANKS to Scott Grossberg for his easy-to-operate yet lovely insightful Deck of Shadows. I love it!

And my humble appreciation to all of those who are supporting me on my “double Pisces” psychic quest…

Happy 2011 and may you as usually be surrounded by Angels and Spirit guides and be AWARE of it and able to INTERPRET the messages they send you every moment of your Journey on Earth.

Dear Friends!

Be honest: how many of you really think that the Hierophant is — you name it — boring, stiff, tiring, full of himself, YOU name it?

He is not.


Indeed, he is one of my most loved cards of the deck. To me, it is a reminder of my beloved late Grandpa, who was a Russian Orthodox Priest. You can read his story and see our photos here:

If you question the place of the Hierophant in your deck of cards, it is time you have a second look at the guy. And here our much respected and loved RUTH ANN and WALD AMBERSTONE, the creators of the TAROT SCHOOL and READERS STUDIO are wearing Santa’s Hats!!! This Christmas, claim your free gift: a FREE CLASS from these Tarot Geniuses: THE HIEROPHANT UNPLUGGED !!! It contains a guided meditation and a nice discussion.

Talking with PAUL NAGY & Co

December 4, 2010

This is a show on esoteric tarot study! Paul Nagy, Joy Vernon, Cynthia Tedesco, David Attwood, Valerie Sherill, Maribeth E Pittman, and Johanna Gargiulo-Sherman discuss the experience of reading the Graphic Novel Promethea by Alan Moore and illustrated by J.H. Williams. This novel was based upon the Thoth Tarot and Paul and friends queried the tarot each week to add commentary to their reading of a chapter.

Paul will also announce another long-term collegial study event beginning in January-February 2011. It will be offered free and without charge and scheduled once weekly on Tuesday evenings for about two hours and will include the study and discussion of two recent substantial contributions to Tarot literature. The Way of Tarot: The Spiritual Teacher in the Cards by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Marianne Costa (Destiny Books) offers some distinctive ways to read and understand Tarot. As a counterweight participants will read in tandem Rachel Pollack’s Tarot Wisdom: Spiritual Teachings and Deeper Meanings by Rachel Pollack (Llewellyn Publications) with Jodorowsky’s to provide ballast to the approach to the Camion Tarot de Marseille reading, divination and magic.

You will find access to info about this study opportunity on this

Many a time Inappropriate Tarot Readings made me laugh and wish for more and I was quite a bit surprised to discover that the man behind this application, the one, known to the Tarot Community as the Tarot Junkie is a serious guy, who discovered Tarot…

oops, I shall stop right here and let you go to the archives of our show to discover who Dan Donche really is 🙂

We talk about Dan’s witty Tarot Junkie website and the Inner Badass Channel: a new network that is supposed to “bring out the best in all of us” 🙂

Listen to the 11/27 episode for some REAL JUNK-ey EXPERIENCE~!

“Keep in mind that the Tarot is a direct pipeline to your intuition.
The cards that you choose will reflect your state of mind.
And they will also reveal information your unconscious
picks up that your conscious mind is not yet aware.”

Ellen Zucker

Ellen Zucker’s  Using Tarot to Access Your Intuition FREE e-course is a fortune that arrives directly to your inbox after signing up at I won’t tell you more because if you are interested in either Tarot or intuition (no, you do not have to be a Tarot enthusiast to use this course to develop your intuition! But if you are willing to expand your Tarot knowledge this is the right place to go to!) I highly encourage you to try it for yourself.  I found a lot of practical applications in it, and when I learnt that in 2011 Ellen is going to have online classes Tarot Strategies and Astrology is More Than Your  Newspaper’s Sun Sign Column I have booked my place immediately! There are other classes offered, too, check them out.

Ellen is a double Pisces and if you have not been blessed by spending enough time with a Pisces… well, you won’t be able to imagine what a double Pisces is! I am a Pisces too, and am told to have 13 personalities; I am sure Ellen has even more but they all are governed by a practical Taurus, which helped her, after leaving the corporate world where she had a steady career growth for 18 (!) years, start her own business of bringing Tarot and Astrology to people via Faces and Fortunes, her smart business of  “helping thousands of clients transform parties into memories that guests cherish for a lifetime” via offering unique entertainment that gives each guest a tangible, personalized souvenir:  caricatures, Tarot and Astrology mini-readings.

Ellen has a BTR show about current Astrology trends and happenings, that helps you to plan your week considering the celestial movements… you can set your reminder here:

Today 11/20 at 4pm Central on the show Ellen and Victoria will talk about Tarot, Astrology and Intuition. Ellen will share tips and tricks and take in calls for on-air mini-readings. It is also a great chance to learn more about this courageous woman who swims where she feels she needs to.

“So, it is my philosophy that the purpose of a Tarot reading is to provide you with
insights about yourself and the world around you in order to empower you to
*create* the future you want. This is why I tell people that I am not a “fortune
teller”; I am a “fortune helper.”

James Ricklef about his Tarot Philosophy

It is my pleasure to introduce you a Tarot reader, teacher, lecturer, and author of Tarot books, decks, fiction and Haiku poetry, Fortune Helper, as he says about himself, James Ricklef. James has given a lot of interviews for radios and blogs, and as I made my way through them I learnt more and more about this humble, knowledgeable and very down-to-earth and yet highly spiritually developed man. I found it to be a rare combination I met only a couple of times in my life. I recommend you go to his website, and explore his interviews, articles, and of course his tarot blog,

James was one of the first professionals I “stumbled upon” at the beginning of my Tarot Journey. I rememebr him starting his blog, and I was faithfully following him from the Republic of Georgia and from China, and then when I returned back to Uzbekistan, I could not open it. I am still clicking every new link I see from James, but, strangely enough, only articles I really NEED at this time of my life open up. For example, we were planning to talk about Tarot Affirmations and sure enough, the page for Temperance, affirmation of the week, opened up to tell me to be patient: I am still in the hospital from last week’s lung collapse, and though I do not feel well I wanted to hold this show with James: talking Tarot lifts up my spirits! 🙂

During our show, which you can download from the archives at, we talked about non-traditional uses for the Tarot and discussed the place of spirituality in one’s life and ways of exploring it with the help of Tarot. James is working on Tarot for Your Spiritual Path book and he kindly shared two of his new spreads with the listeners.

I have to admit, that I find James *insanely* talented about creating spreads! He seem to be able to take any picture/cartoon/phrase or a huge concept like happiness in Buddhism and wrap his mind around it and prodice a wonderful, simple, useful spread! He shares insights and how-to-s of his many techniques in 5-starred by book Tarot — Get the Whole Story which is a follow up to his Tarot Tells the Tale.

Talking about James I cannot not to mention his lovely deck, Tarot of the Masters, which is inspired by classic paintings by old masters, such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Bouguereau, Rubens, and Hieronymus Bosch. I highly recommend you get the companion book when purchasing this limited edition deck, for having the insight story totally changes one’s perspective and hightens appreciation of the deck.

Listen to the episode #8 to learn one of the most common denominators between Tarot and Feng Shui, to learn how to create and use affirmations (described in details inTarot Affirmations book), to get insights about Spirituality and Tarot and to add two new Tarot Spreads into your collection! Unfortunately, Ed Peterson was busy at work and could not co-host this show…. but hopefully, he will be  back on air next Saturday, November 20th, 4pm Central, when we will talk with Ellen Zucker, Intuitive Tarot Reader and Astrologer.

Thank You, James Ricklef, for coming to our show! Thank you for all the work you do to bring Tarot on a higher level and remind people of its spiritual foundation over the mundane “fortunetelling” use!
