Rhianna ~ 26 years

Owner, Visionary, Creatrix

“I love the many hats I wear, beginning with being the chief navigator of the fundamental going-ons at the DG. I’m a mother to one awesome man, a sister to two beautiful women, and Aunt Rhi Rhi to four amazing young humans. I’m currently the beloved caregiver of two black cats and a 6 ft red tail boa constrictor. I’m a fire spinner, hula hooper, dancer, healer, artist.”

Favorite Mystical Creature: Unicorns are my favorite magical extinct creature. 
Birthday/Zodiac Sign: Taurus with Virgo Rising; Moon in Cancer
If You Were a Stone or Crystal, What Would You Be: If I were a stone I would like to be a piece of Fire Agate ~ deep, mysterious, full of vibrant flashes of red, orange and gold that dance like flames.
Favorite Color: If I said my favorite color was anything other than purple would anyone believe me?!
Favorite Form of Divination: Pendulum
Favorite Tarot of Oracle Deck: The Messenger Oracle, by Ravynne Phelan, has become my favorite daily go to deck. As far as tarot, I have a tattered old deck of the Lovers Tarot, now long out of print, that are over-sized collage cards, depicting only the major arcana. I love it dearly and have found it to be incredibly profound. For readings my fall back deck is the Robin Wood tarot.
Favorite Poem, Book or Author: Favorite poet is Mary Oliver and my favorite poem by her is “Sleeping in the Forest.”
Favorite Artist: Love my local girl Melissa Harris for sure.
Favorite Song to Sing or Dance to: Song to sing, dance and hula hoop to would be Anna Nalick “Breathe”, I like to fire spin to Evanescence “Bring Me to Life” and my favorite song to listen to is “Bliss” by Sirgun Karaoke and Sardar Shan Singh.
Favorite Movie: I have many favorite movies. These days I will only watch non-scary sci-fi or super hero movies, animated movies and movies with happy endings.
Favorite place to grab a bite in the DG neighborhood: I love so many of our awesome neighborhood restaurants I couldn’t just tell you about one so here goes: fresh juice at All Shook Up; any salad and the lavender lemonade from Twisted Soul; everything on the menu at Tomato Cafe and all your coffee needs are well taken care of at the Crafted Kup – right next door.
The best thing about working at the DG: The best thing about going to work every day starts off with being greeted by the most amazing staff. We are a cohesive family unit; growing, healing, challenging ourselves in the safety of each others’ gentleness and understanding. I am deeply blessed by each of their presence in my life, both at work and outside of the Shop.

All the artwork is beautiful and there is so much intention and knowledge to be found on each card.

Favorite Song to Sing or Dance to:  I am not much of a dancer, but I am always singing along when I’m in my car or at home.
Favorite Movie: I LOVE paranormal horror films, but I also love dark comedies and period dramas. I swear I’m not scary ~ I just love scary things! Regardless of genres, storylines that have a strong female lead always capture my interest. A few of my favorite movies are the Skeleton Twins, the original Omen movies and the Annabelle/Insidious movies. My favorite shows are Outlander, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Supernatural.
The Best Thing About Working at the DG: It’s so refreshing to work in a women-run space with like minded people. There is a powerful feeling of authenticity and appreciation for each part we play in the business. We are all passionate and connected through our metaphysical interest, values and lifestyles. My favorite topics in general are witchcraft/paganism, crystals and photography. As a Social Media Specialist, I get to combine all my interests into one position and I very much look forward to work! I immediately felt right at home and I couldn’t be happier to be on the team.
