The Viola Lux Umbra Tarot came to be over a lifetime of seasonal change, sprouted from soil to the wisdom of archaic stars that blossom in the night sky. Years of botanical magic brought me here, inspired to grow through art, divination, wonder, and fate with ancient light and shadow — the kindred forces our branches cast upon the mysteries of life. From novice, sprouting Tarot readers to experts whose stems mature with timeworn truths, Viola Lux Umbra will lead you along the growing path.
Rooted in mythology and infused with plant magic, the Pythia Botanica Oracle is the intuitive, hand-illustrated, botanical deck that has been enchanting so many around the world since it first sprouted. Each of these antique gold gilded, floral cards were hand-illustrated with care, complete with guiding words to hone in on deeper, personal meanings behind the magic, mythology, history and healing properties inherent to such botanical gifts. Read these cards in traditional Tarot spreads and allow the spirit of these plants to bloom before you.
The Ophidia Rosa Tarot came to be over a year-long period, cared for and pondered through four seasons of natural change. While framed by the tarot's ancient tradition and structure, my botanical world―full of such transformation, from the soil to the seedling, the sprout and the bloom―placed an emphasis on change bursting forth all around me. Each of these 78 cards―the full Major and Minor arcana―draws on the tarot's timeworn truth carried closer to home.

This botanical, tea-stained dream was a first of its kind, sprouting up from flowerbeds to the cards, to a plant magic deck that would guide myself and so many of us through nearly a decade of truths. Now the Anniversary brings a limited edition sequel to the deck that started it all...
Volume II is a full expansion, blooming with 48 all new cards, plants, flowers, and meaningful guidebook.
