Once known as the Exploring Astrology podcast, Holes to Heavens is the work of Adam Sommer, poet of the stars! It’s been running for a decade, fueled by music, conversation, and Adam’s myth-inflected insights into the unseen workings of astrology. When I went looking for an astrologically-oriented show where I could talk about tarot, Holes to Heavens was the obvious place to turn.

It’s official! Today is publication day for Tarot Correspondences: Ancient Secrets for Everyday Readers, my first tarot book. It’s only been 22 months or so since I emailed the brilliant Barbara Moore, whom I knew only from her impossibly stylish Steampunk Tarot.
