The next day after our first show GREMLINS on September 18th 2010, I got a “dreamy” e-mail from Ed. “Patrick Valenza.  Wouldn’t that be cool if he was with us for our Halloween show?”

“Well, why don’t I ask him?” I typed back and immediately sent an e-mail to Patrick. We had already been acquainted:  my deck was the first, and for now, the only, he has ever sent to Uzbekistan. To our greatest joy, Patrick agreed to be with us on the show on October 30th. What a handful of trust Patrick had in us because at that time we had produced only ONE episode!

“I am your Santa Girl!” I wrote to Ed, “GUESS who is coming to us on October 30th??”

THANK YOU PATRICK for your trust and for the very interesting and engaging conversation we had on air! I have received many responses from our followers, and they say, that it was a great chance to learn more about the author of  the Deviant Moon deck which is much loved in the Tarot Community.

I will not spoil your appetite for downloading the show and listening to it, but I will say that you will learn a lot about the artist, mystic, dreamer, creator and  man Patrick Valenza, including the reason why suddenly ALL nightmares disappeared from his life; why the cemetery where most “texture” images are taken at is a “sweet” place for him; how the cards of the DM “revealed” themselves; why his forthcoming self-published deck has the title “444”; and what an amazing SISTER DECK TO THE DEVIANT MOON is in his closest plans! We also talked about families, dreams, mystical experiences and much more.

Having heard that the Six of Pentacles was the only card from the whole deck that Patrick had to re-do, Ed Peterson (my famous in all matters of numerology co-host) immediately responded with his magic knowledge, knocking everybody’s socks off: the Six of Pentacles, according to his calculations, corresponds to the number 74 and both the number 74 and the Six of Pentacles card are Patrick’s Primary Challenge.  One’s Primary Challenge is calculated by a formula using the letters in one’s name (see below).

Thank you Ed for this in-depth study of the numbers of our well-loved artist and, as we know now, Mystic! Thank you, Patrick, for allowing us to share this on the blog!

Patrick Valenza was born on March 15th, 1967 according to Patrick Valenza.

March 15th, 1967

3 + 15 = 18 = The Moon = his core number = The Moon.  Tarot.  Art.  Psychic.  The unconscious/subconscious.  Past-life memories.  Dreams.  Imagination.  Surreal.  The night.  The dark.

March 15th, 1967

15 + 1+9+6+7 = 38 = Queen of Cups = his “secret” number = Sensitive.

“Light brown hair, blue/hazel eyes;
On intuition he relies.”

[modified quote from Eileen Connolly’s book “Tarot:  A New Handbook for the Apprentice”]

7          4        1

his primary challenge = PV = 74 = Six of Pentacles = Generosity.  Sharing wisely.  Gifts.
how he obtains his heart’s desire = PA = 71 = Three of Pentacles = Professional.  Excellence.  Masterpiece.  Inspiring work.  Doing a good job.  Quality is job 1.

On the show, I shared my continuous stumbling upon the Deviant Moon and here’s the portrait Patrick drew on my package. Can you believe it, that he did it BEFORE he had ever seen my photo? It is only after I have received the package when we became Facebook friends, and he calmly scribbled on my wall:  “this is exactly how I thought you look like”.  Artist?  nope.  Mystic!!

A present for Val Sherill, who was the first one to guess who our “secret” guest was, is already on the way to her: DM deck, of course, wrapped in paper with Patrick’s gorgeous drawings on it. I am sure it is yet another of his works to be framed and cherished!

And a present for all of our followers is A New Can of Worms spread, which goes together brilliantly with the DM deck. This one is created by Koneta Bailey of www.NewPathsTarot.com, with the drawings by her husband, Mister B.B. 🙂 I totally adore that little worm that tries to escape! Halloween, cemetery texture images, warms, deviant moon….. what a lovely outing, lol !!

Steps to help open and examine what is in your “Can of Worms”

  • Card one — Using the can opener:    (insert question here) example.  “How do I change or shape my actions in order to achieve my goals?”
  • Card two — A Peek under the lid:     The outer influences that affect me in a negative manner.
  • Card three — Prying the lid:   Once the negative issue has been revealed, this is the best course of action for  remedy
  • Card four — Take a good look inside:  Looking at the problem straight in the eye (s) and realizing it’s quite fixable and not as bad as you first thought.  This card is for further help and advice with meeting the problem head on.  (puns intended)
  • Card five – Containment.  The positive influences that I need to hold onto and utilize.  Things or people that can help me deal with the negative/slimy worms I find in my can.
  • Card six — Escape.  Once you have a clear idea of how to deal with your particular “worm” put him to work for you.  Use him to your advantage to lure what you want/need to you.  Or, if the situation calls for a complete release, he can be the one that got away.  In most cases though, the worm that tries to get away is the one that needs the most attention.

Happy Listening!!!! Thank you for following our show, Facebook page and this blog! May you have a power filled day!
