Avowed to autonomy, espoused to empowerment, we seek the firmest of roots and nurture our truest of blooms.
The Maiden Oracle is wedded to independence and weeded of despondence. Through 68 cards and bound guidebook ― earthborn botanicals, ancient mythology, and a new vision of the Major Arcana ― we seek clarity from chaos, vision against division, and a fellowship of blooms that can only sprawl from empowerment sown within.
A humble garden journey, hands smudged in soil, has thus far brought me here. The Maiden deck completes a trilogy of floral searching, a quest left standing tall among the fruits of labor, among all that's crawled before and all that will forever grow.
A TOOL FOR GUIDANCE, TRANSFORMATION & WANDERLUST IN THE NATURAL REALM.
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. There's always something growing in our hearts, transforming ourselves and our visions, from the soil to the stars.
where flowers root and grow forever, filling the void and the well with a wish.
From the soil to the stars, Ad Orbita is a Tarot deck that explores ancient orbits of inner and outer space. Through 78 cards — Major and Minor Arcana — Ad Orbita journeys past the present's night sky, into the sprawling, boundless realm of imagination. Finding growth in gravity both near and afar, we move through cycles that foster or foil the fears that swing along the path of our creative fate.
Wands seek balance within a star, in which the fire and light of two suns become one. Cups look to the gravity of ocean waves that pull and rouse our own internal movement. Swords follow the orbit of celestial bodies, bringing the path of distant galaxies closer to home. Pentacles stem from the seasonal and botanical movement at our fingertips, the nearest connection to all things eternal.
Moon Garden & Sun Garden
Botanical cloths to adorn oneself or one's altar.
Sprung from soil, nourished by water, grown from light.
We invoke the myth of the Pythia, an ancient priestess whose visions channeled prophecies from Hellenic gods. Also known as the Oracle of Delphi, her divinations were steeped in mystery and enigmatic wonder―a trusted presage that loomed in the hearts of all who sought to persist against fate.
An intuitive, botanical Oracle deck, the Pythia Botanica holds 48 hand-illustrated and tea-stained cards, alongside a bound guidebook. Each of these cards derive from personal meaning rooted in mythology surrounding the adorning herbs and flowers. Allow the spirit of these plants to guide you.
From the Garden to the cards
Since I was young, the need to cultivate plants, to feel the soil in my hands and the warm sun gleam through the sprinkle of the hose, to watch in amazement as seeds turn to sprouts, then to plants and blooms, has been essential to my personal growth. Being amongst plants is where I am most at peace, most evergreen, most purely myself. This is a most cherished part of my world, where botanicals and illustration meet, from the garden to the cards.
