The Hit List - Long days away

On Monday, I returned back to earth after ten long days away from home. I was in Portland for the World Domination Summit, one of my favorite events of the year (next year is the last so if you have always wanted to check it out, I highly recommend that you get on that). I also taught a packed class at New Renaissance Bookstore, one of my favorite metaphysical joints. The folks that showed up were enthusiastic and a joy to teach!

From there, I was on to San Francisco for my annual Brushes and Cards event with the Wild Heart Queen herself, Chris Zydel. This was our third year hosting this shindig and I must say: it was a potent one. Here are my pics from my time away. (Psst…while I was out of town my latest book Tarot For Troubled Times with co-author Shaheen Miro dropped. The pic above was at Powell’s – the first time I spotted the book in the wild!)

I see everything through a tarot/astrology lens. These scales were on the streets of Portland and made me think of Justice/Libra!
