Clairvoyance,from the French clair, "clear, clear" and voir, "see", implies an ability to see things hidden from the senses. Is this an ability found in the design profession?

In my degree project, I have investigated how the tarot cards' relationship to reality and surrealism can be used to process the subconscious and the unknown, as well as how you as a designer relate to the future. During a divination session at the beginning of the year, I asked what my future and the graduation collection would look like, mixed the deck and was subsequently awarded 13 cards that symbolized my spring. My goal with the project has been to bring together the symbolic language of tarot with my design identity; to make a personal interpretation of my predicted future in textiles product design I have let the cards guide me during the process. 

The collection includes prints with symbolic interpretations of my assigned cards and material symbolism such as rods and crystal balls.
