Dear Friends! Thank you for the incredible support we receive from you, your kind comments and emails, beyond hundreds show downloads, thank you for joining our show’s page on Facebook and for marking us Favorite on Blog Talk Radio.

Last week, during the show with Anna Cook, the author of Tarot Dynamics, we experienced a lot of technical difficulties. Apparently, the Gremlins we “invited” to our very first show woke up and came to pay a visit: from 21 raised for a reading hand only one lady managed to hang on and get her mini-reading on air; the rest of the people kept on being dropped off the lines and disconnected… I myself happened to be disconnected some four or five times! Our apologies for the unruly behavior of the citizens of the communication lines (i.e. Gremlins) and we will try to prevent such a situation happening by introducing a new format: taking in calls for mini readings every 15 minutes or so… Be on the line and be there early to make sure you get the reading! 🙂

And now to some wonderfully exciting news. Many of you have already heard from my many excited shouts on the Facebook that on Saturday October 2nd show our dear guest is Catherine Chapman, the creator of the beautifully clean and stylish Tarot Elements website. I will not tell you just how much incredibly useful information Catherine has on that amazing website, starting from tips and techniques on conquering Court Cards, reading the Celtic Cross Spread like a Pro, coherent explanations and plenty of examples and exercises on Elemental Dignities, FABULOUS indeed author spreads and more and more: visit CONTENT PAGE and do not miss Discussions, Interviews, Inspiration and Tarot News pages, sitting at the very end of the long scroll down through delightful goodies for the mind and spirit of a Tarot Lover of any level!

I cannot, not mention the famous graphics… The Tarot community has been trying long and hard to get Catherine’s secret, but the girl just laughs charmingly and promises, that one day she should open up a school, take like “five hundred pounds” from each of us and share her secrets. Catherine! You never know, but I am SURE there are those of us who will willingly trade a few Limited Edition decks in order to learn from you….. and I am one of those people! 🙂

With years, Catherine Chapman gathered a lovely team of professionals and friends on her website. The team consists of Catherine herself, Tarot Elements’ Resident Astrologer Valerie Sylvester (who is, by the way, coming to our show on October 16th, and not alone but with her famous psychic teacher….. shh-h…. I wont tell you her name just now, BUT she has a Broadway show about her life, and yes, it has been running for a while!); the famous reviewer Bonnie Cehovet who, it seems to me, has read each and every Tarot related book and played with each and every Tarot and oracle deck, and among contributing friends you’ll find Barbara Moore, the Tarot Lady, Douglas Gibb, Dea Animi and others.  

I was surprised and delighted by Catherine’s unexpected present! While her book, BEYOND THE CELTIC CROSS, has been in my check out cart on Amazon.com for several months, waiting for my trip to either Europe or the USA (Amazon does not ship to Central Asia), Catherine kindly sent me her gift, and what a blessing it has arrived just in time for me to read it (but not to STUDY, of course!) before our show. THANK YOU DEAR CATHERINE!!

This book, born from correspondence and classes with Paul Hughes-Barlow, who is famous for his highly informative and detailed Super Tarot website/blog and deep research into oldish techniques, is a small one. But they are oh so right: never judge the book by its cover, for it, indeed, takes you onto deep levels of interpretation of  any spread 10+ cards spread, and even, what I found quite priceless, helps you or your client to see the situation developing in many of the smaller variations you/they can introduce to daily life.

The book promises that “once the counting and elemental laws have become inherent, your mind will be left free to explore and interpret the combinations that appear,” and the authors keep the promise and deliver the techniques in detail, enabling you to offer readings that are “out of this world”.

I have to admit I was intimidated by the card counting but is not even nearly as tough as it sounds! Just watch a YouTube video of Paul if you are confused… for a wonderful radio show, where Catherine performs a Celtic Cross readings using card counting and elemental dignities techniques, explaining each step of hers, listen to Donnaleigh de LaRose‘s June issue of Beyond Worlds-Your Tarot Tribe Blog Talk Radio show.
