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!

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.

Really.

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: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=180624&id=773331531&l=b32ef10627

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.

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 ‚Äúsecret‚ÄĚ number = Sensitive.

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

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

‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ-

using the number/letter grid:
1      2      3       4       5       6      7      8      9
A      B     C       D       E       F      G      H      I
J      K      L      M      N       O      P      Q      R
S      T      U      V      W      X      Y      Z

Where:

A = 1              J = 1              S = 1
B = 2              K = 2             T = 2
C = 3              L = 3             U = 3
D = 4              M = 4            V = 4
E = 5              N = 5            W = 5
F = 6              O = 6             X = 6
G = 7              P = 7             Y = 7
H = 8              Q = 8             Z = 8
I = 9               R = 9
Patrick Valenza
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. ūüôā 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 ‚ÄúCan of Worms‚ÄĚ

  • Card one — Using the can opener:¬† ¬†¬†(insert question here) example.¬† ‚ÄúHow do I change or shape my actions in order to achieve my goals?‚ÄĚ
  • 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‚Äôs 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 ‚Äď 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 ‚Äúworm‚ÄĚ 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!

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! ūüôā

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! ūüôā

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.¬†¬†¬†

So, what is on¬†Talking with Ed and Victoria Evangelina‘s agenda for Saturday, October 2nd, 4PM Central?

  • we will talk about many ways Tarot changed Catherine’s life;
  • we will talk about Catherine’s new, outstanding Tarot Study Blog;
  • we will talk about her passion for creating new spreads and how she does it;
  • Catherine will present the exclusive 3-2-1 spread and we will have a handout with her famous graphics, too!
  • OF COURSE I will ask Catherine about the website and try, once again, to dig out at least one of the many secrets of cyberspace success this lady enjoys ūüôā
  • Ed Peterson will look into Catherine’s numbers and shed some light onto recent and future developments of her life;
  • if we have enough time, Victoria Evangelina¬†and Catherine discuss the similarities and differences in Elemental Dignities between Feng¬†Shui and Golden Down techniques;
  • every 15 minutes we plan to¬†take in calls for mini-readings: Catherine will read with Tarot cards and I join her with my trusted Deck of Shadows, created by Scott Grossberg;
  • Catherine will announce the lucky winner of her book, and YES you still have some time to participate: go to the new Tarot Study Blog, have a look around and leave a meaningful commentary on a card of your choice… Good Luck, and trust me: you will love the book and techniques described!
  • and of course you will get your weekly Feng¬†Shui advice ūüôā

Dear Friends! Thank you for the incredible support we have received from all of you after our first show on Saturday 19th! You can listen to it in the archives and leave comments…. Close to 200 (!!!) people have downloaded our first show during this week, and we thanking you with all the heart for your trust: believe us, we have some INCREDIBLE guests scheduled for your FUN and development!

And now, buckle up for the FUNdamental experience!!! ANNA COOK, the bestselling author of the TAROT DYNAMICS, an international¬†reader and teacher with¬†32 years of experience and a¬†very dear friend of Victoria Evangelina is on our show this Saturday, September 25th, at 4PM Central on Blog Talk Radio! We wonder if we shall make this show 2 hours long…. for there is so much to discuss and share with you, our dear listeners, that we are simply afraid to be out of time in a blink of an eye!

Here are just a few highlights of what we are planning to talk about on September 25th show:

  • Ed and Anna will discuss numerology in Tarot;
  • Anna will teach a class on DYNAMIC AND DIRTY TIMING IN TAROT;
  • Anna will choose a winner of her authographed TAROT DYNAMICS¬†book (how to secure your lucky chance? read on!!);
  • we will talk a little bit about a life of a visionary, wanting to take the guesswork out of learning and reading the Tarot and make it available for all in the 21st century;
  • Victoria Evangelina will share a weekly Feng Shui tip and join Anna’s readings with drawing a card from Scott Grossberg’s outstanding The Deck Of Shadows;
  • we will have a SURPRISE guest….. no, he is no one extremely famous in the Tarot community…. and yet, he is very, very IMPORTANT…. and there is a whole army of people like them! WHO IS IT???? ….well…. set your reminder to listen to the show on 9/25, 4PM Central on BTR! ūüôā
  • and of course we will be doing free mini-readings for the people who are calling in (a friendly suggestion….. it looks like we are going to have a LOT of people who are going to call in….. so do call in earlier during the show and do not forget to “raise your hand” by pressing “1” so we can see you on the switchboard!)

PLEASE NOTE!: you need to have YOUR OWN TAROT DECK (any) handy, because when asking for a reading from Anna Cook, you will be drawing YOUR OWN CARDS (one or three)! Why?

“Unlike other readers I do not believe that ANYONE should shuffle your cards except, you,” says Anna. She is the only reader¬†we know who is so sencitive to making sure there¬†is no outer¬†influence on the energy of the reading and¬†we respect it greatly… Just as her many international clients do: it’s just between us, do not tell anybody, but Anna is now reading the cards for… GRANDCHILDREN of people who¬†were coming to see her for a piece of advice in¬†Cays Tea-Room on 4th and Prospect in downtown Cleveland back in the late 70-es… ¬†Her clients stick with her, and we got a full-swing confirmation to it when listening to the latest Anna’s radio appearance on NuLife Radio

The best way to prepare yourself for this very DYNAMIC show is to listen to the archives of¬†Anna’s appearance on Beyond Worlds Beginner’s Class¬†show ¬†hosted by our very¬†own fairy GodMothers Donnaleigh de LaRose¬†and Theresa Reed.

AND NOW THE GIFTS!!!! Do not miss your chance to vin the Amazon¬†5-star ranked bestselling Tarot Dynamics book, authographed by Anna herself! Post your responce to the question “WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO MODERNIZE THE TAROT?” in the comments section of this post, and on OCTOBER 2nd, Saturday, Anna will call into the show and announce the WINNER!

NB: we have received many complaints from people who cannot log into the WordPress to post comments: if it is true about you, find me or Anna on the Facebook :Victoria Evangelina Belyavskaya or Anna Burroughs Cook and send us a direct message with your answer! Or simply go to the show’s page on the Facebook and LIKE us there and post your responce to this question!

See you all on 9/25, 4PM Central on BTR, Talking with Ed and Victoria Evangelina and Anna Cook show!
