An intuitive Oracle deck rooted in mythology and infused with plant magick, the Pythia Botanica offers 48 cards that have been hand-illustrated and tea-stained by Nicole Rallis, creator of the equally beautiful Ophidia Rosa Tarot. Each card derives from personal meaning rooted in mythology surrounding the adorning herbs and flowers. Read these cards in traditional Tarot spreads and allow the spirit of these plants to guide you.

“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 women and men who sought to persist against fate.”
– Nicole Rallis


  • 48 cards printed on durable card stock, with antique gold gilded edges
  • A 54-page guidebook that fits inside the box, with instructions on how to read these cards, corresponding botanical illustrations and meanings
  • A sturdy, two piece box to carry your deck and guidebook wherever you may travel

A note from the artist:

I embarked on this journey of creating the Pythia Botanica with an uncloaked spirit, open mind and hungry heart, lost in plant magick and guided by Mother Nature through the illustration of each card. From my earliest memories, I have felt a kinship with nature. Being amongst plants is where I am most at peace, most evergreen, most purely myself. Through this work, I have dug into my own Hellenic heritage, finding among roots of botanical enchantment a mythology both below and beyond where those first seeds were sown. 

I hold Tarot and Oracle decks sacred, and truly infused my soul into the Pythia Botanica with the hope that these cards will bring light to those who read them. May you feel the heartfelt vision, love and journey behind these cards, the beauty of botanicals around us and the healing force within. 

Love & light to you all. 

– Nicole Rallis

    I’m mostly a tarot reader. I don’t care much for oracles. I can’t relate to Lenormand at all, and I’ve tried. However with this deck it was different. I liked the idea of a botanical oracle. It felt like ancient magick.
    The cards are beautiful and very easy to read. Even so, I felt the need to look up the plants’ names in my native language to make them more familiar to me. I learned more about the plants and understood better they meaning.
    I use this oracle as a complement to my tarot readings and I found solace in it in this troubled times. It encourages me to forgive myself and others for their shortcomings, and tells me it is OK to indulge myself to placate the pain while it isn’t possible to end it.
    It changed my mind about oracles.
