One of the most fulfilling and surprising experiences of releasing this work into the universe is being invited into how others interact with the Pythia Botanica Oracle and now, with its sister deck, the Ophidia Rosa Tarot. To be able to witness your readings, for y'all to share your interpretations and connections to these works that were once so personal and close to me, is a feeling I can not adequately express into words ― truly, thank you.
Initially, these works started out as personal pieces, to be used in my own practice, to connect to my ancestry, my roots and the botanicals I hold so dear. In sharing these works, my intention and hope was for them to serve as lights for others, guides through the shadows and sunbeams, beacons of hope and truth, love and loss. May you transform, blossom and bloom, seek your truth and gather your roots within these tools.
