RÊVERIE ORACLE CARDS 1 - 6 DESIGN INSPO









CARD 1

RIDER/CAVALIER



THE RIDER CARD SIGNIFIES MOVEMENT OF SOME KIND,

WHETHER PHYSICAL OR EMOTIONAL.

A MESSAGE, VISITOR, OR NEW PLANS ARE ON THEIR WAY.

THE RIDER CLEARS THE PATH, REMOVING STAGNANT ENERGIES

AND INITIATES FORWARD MOTION TOWARD NEW GOALS.



I HAVE HAD TWO DEAR GIRLFRIENDS WHO WERE HORSE WHISPERERS.

WITNESSING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THEM AND SUCH POWERFUL ANIMALS

ALWAYS LEFT ME IN AWE.

I MET JENNY IN KINDERGARTEN.

SHE WAS MY FIRST FRIEND WHO COULD CARE LESS ABOUT

FITTING IN BECAUSE SHE FULLY BELONGED TO HER OWN WORLD.

I TAGGED ALONG WITH HER TO HORSE SHOWS ON THE WEEKENDS

WHERE SHE WAS A RESPECTED MEMBER OF THE RIDING SOCIETY.

ONCE, SHE CONVINCED ME TO STAND ON A BARREL

TO TRY TO JUMP ON THE BACK OF HER SPEEDING HORSE.

I WAS NOT THE FRIEND FOR THAT ADVENTURE.

BUT SHE TAUGHT ME SO MUCH ABOUT LIFE AT A YOUNG AGE

BECAUSE OF HER LIFESTYLE.


CASSIE IS PICTURED IN THE RIDER CARD.

I HAVE BEEN ENCHANTED BY HER SULTRY ESSENCE

SINCE WE MET IN OUR EARLY TWENTIES.

HER ENVELOPING COMPASSION

EMBODIES THE ENERGETICS OF AN UNBRIDLED HORSE.


BOTH GIRLS ARE FREE SPIRITED LIKE GORGEOUS WILD HORSES

DELIVERING THE MESSAGE OF EMPOWERING INDEPENDENCE.

FOR THIS CARD I USED A MOMENT I CAPTURED

BETWEEN TWO KINDRED SOULS

LAYERED OVER A FRAGMENT OF A PAINTING.





CARD 2

CLOVER/TRÈFLE



THE CLOVER SIGNIFIES GOOD FORTUNE.

A SYMBOL OF LUCK, OPTIMISM, AND GRATITUDE.

IT SUGGESTS WE EMBRACE NEWNESS WITH HOPE

EVEN WHERE THERE MAY BE RISK.

IT REMINDS US TO DELIGHT IN LIGHTHEARTEDNESS.


I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO GROW UP IN A TIME

WHEN THERE WERE NO COMPUTERS

AND YOU COULD ONLY WATCH CARTOONS ON SATURDAY MORNINGS.

YOU SAT AND FIDGETED WITH THE SPIRAL CORD OF THE PHONE

ATTACHED TO THE WALL FOR HOURS CHATTING WITH FRIENDS.

I ALSO SAT IN CLOVER PATCHES FOR ENTIRE DAYS

MAKING CROWNS FOR EVERYONE I KNEW.

EACH ONE I MADE HAD IT'S OWN

SPECIAL STORY OR WISH ATTACHED TO IT FOR THAT PERSON.

I'M SO GRATEFUL I HAD THIS QUIET TIME AS A CHILD

TO DEVELOP MY IMAGINATION AND INTENTION SKILLS.

THIS CARD FEATURES A CLOVER CROWN

HAND PAINTED LEAVES

AND SPECIAL WISHES

ESPECIALLY FOR THE DECK OWNER.






CARD 3

SHIP/NAVIRE



THE SHIP SIGNIFIES NOT ONLY PHYSICAL TRAVEL,

BUT ALSO OUR EMOTIONAL DESIRE TO JOURNEY INTO THE UNKOWN,

TO EXPERIENCE NEW ADVENTURES.

IT CAN ALSO ALLUDE TO LEAVING SOMETHING BEHIND

THAT NO LONGER SERVES US.



I AM A BOAT CAPTAIN'S DAUGHTER.

I GREW UP IN MARINE SHOPS AND CRUISING THE BAYOUS

ON ALUMINUM DECKS.

MY PATERNAL GRANDFATHER WAS A MARINE AT THE ILLEGAL AGE OF 14

WHICH IS A FASCINATING TALE.

HE SOLD OUTBOARD MOTORS LONG AGO

AND THE PHOTO I FOUND OF HIM NEAR A HAND MADE SIGN AND FOLDING TABLE

REVEALED WHERE MY ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT ORIGINATED.

WITH MUCH PERSEVERANCE HE AND HIS CHILDREN OPENED GEO MARINE ,

EVENTUALLY EVOLVING INTO GEO SHIPYARD WHERE THEY BUILT

100 FOOT TUG BOATS, SEISMOGRAPH VESSELS , AND FERRIES.


WHEN MY DAD SAW THE SHIP CARD HE ASKED WHY I USED THAT BOAT

AND NOT ONE OF HIS PRIZED TROPHIES.

I JUST THINK IT'S SO SIMPLE AND GROOVY FROM THE DECADE OF MY BIRTH.





CARD 4

HOUSE/MAISON




THE HOUSE SIGNIFIES THE HOME.

OUR INTERNAL WORLD AS WELL AS OUR PHYSICAL DWELLING.

IT REPRESENTS OUR FAMILY, HOMELAND AND ANCESTRAL HISTORY.

IT DEALS WITH THE SECURITY WE FEEL IN OUR SAFE PLACE.



THIS CARD FEATURES MY PETITE CYPRESS CABIN.

IT HAS BEEN AN ART STUDIO, A STORAGE SHED,

AND WAS ALSO ONCE LIVED IN.

FROM THAT EXPERIENCE I LEARNED

WHY THE PHRASE 'CABIN FEVER' WAS COINED

AND THAT THE IDEA OF TINY LIVING IS ROMANTIC

UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY TRY TO PULL IT OFF FULL TIME.

WITH KIDS.

IT TOOK ABOUT A DECADE TO BUILD A HOUSE

AND FLOATING AROUND FOR ALMOST TEN YEARS

LIVING IN THIS CABIN, RENTALS, MY FOLKS HOUSE, AND A SCHOOL BUS,

REALLY PROVED THE NOTION THAT

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS.

WHEREVER WE WERE, WE WERE ALL TOGETHER

AND THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERED.

EVEN IN 200 SQUARE FEET.








CARD 5

TREE/ARBRE



THE TREE SIGNIFIES HEALTH.

OUR PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING.

THE ROOT SYSTEM OR OUR PAST IS THE FOCAL POINT 

AS THE PATH REVEALING OUR PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCES.



THE BALD CYPRESS IS LOUISIANA'S STATE TREE.

IT IS ALSO ONE OF MY FAVORITES.

THE FACT THAT SOMETHING SO STABLE CAN GROW RIGHT OUT OF

AND THRIVE IN MUDDY WATERS IS JUST SO MAGICAL.

THEY ARE ROT RESISTANT, WHICH IS WHY THE

ACADIANS BUILT THEIR HOMES WITH THEM

AND MANY ARE STILL STANDING.

SPANISH MOSS LOVE THEM TOO

AND THEIR COMBO CREATES THE ICONIC SWAMP IMAGE.







CARD 6

CLOUDS/NUAGES



THE CLOUDS SIGNIFY A THIN VEIL BLOCKING THE LIGHT OF CLARITY.

IT CAN INDICATE A CONFUSING SITUATION OR A FEELING OF BEING LOST.

A SENSE OF VAGUENESS IS PRESENT.

MYSTERIES CAN BE EMBRACED OR HEEDED.


I AM ONE OF THOSE DAY DREAMERS

WHO CAN LOSE HOURS STARING AT THE CLOUDS SWIMMING IN THE SKY.

THEY SPEAK TO ME LIKE THE MOSSY TREES DO.

I AM CONSTANTLY SEEING SHAPES AND FIGURES IN THEM.

IT AMAZES ME JUST HOW FAST THEY TRANSFORM

WHILE WATCHING THEM CHANGE COLOR IN THE SETTING SUN.

A REMINDER THAT NOTHING STAYS

THE SAME FOR TOO LONG.
