Lenormand card

I purchased my first deck of tarot cards back in 1983. But it wasn’t until some years later that I was able to fully understand the meaning of the cards.  As I became more and more comfortable with using my intuitive side, the cards suddenly “clicked” for me and the story they told began to focus.

In the past, the  method I used for reading the tarot cards was simple –  a combination of the “official” meaning of each card and the intuitive story that was playing in my head as the cards were drawn.  In others words, the cards became a personal form of divination for me, just the same as some people may use a bowl of water or a crystal ball (both are forms of scrying).

It is not unusual for images to emerge outside of what the cards are telling us.  Sometimes, answers to several questions arise, despite the fact that the questioner (you) only asked one.

For many years I used the MYTHIC TAROT. Pictured in the Mythic Tarot are Gods and Goddesses, demigods, heroes and villains of ancient Greek mythology and legend. First published in 1989, I purchased this particular deck around 1992 and kept them for almost fifteen years..  But, alas, they disappeared into thin air one day – absolutely nowhere to be found.  I like to think they walked away and into the hands of someone who really needed them.  So, a few years ago I replaced the old deck with an identical one.  Almost every tarot reader has a deck that they feel a connection with. Then one day, my original deck of cards returned to me.  It’s absolutely STRANGE. They were found inside the box that the NEW replacement deck came in.  Yes, I had put the box on the bookshelf because it was a decorative gift-box. One day recently I was looking for something and pulled the box off the shelf and it felt heavy.  There inside was my original deck, right where I had pulled out the brand new deck when it arrived. Hmm. Eyebrow raising. But, just as both decks made themselves available – I happened upon my current deck of Lenormand cards.

What sort of cards do you use?

I have many different decks of tarot cards and enjoy collecting them – but the ones I prefer to use, the ones I feel the most connected with, are not really Tarot cards at all – they are called Lenormand cards. (from Wikipedia)Marie Anne Lenormand (1772–1843) was a French professional fortune-teller, active for more than 40 years and of considerable fame during the Napoleonic era. Lenormand claimed to have given cartomantic advice to many famous persons, among them leaders of the French revolution (Marat, Robespierre and St-Just), Empress Josephine and Czar Alexander. After Lenormand’s death her name was used on several cartomancy decks including a deck of 36 illustrated cards known as the Petit Lenormand or simply Lenormand cards still used extensively today. The 36 card Lenormand deck is modelled on a deck of cards published c1799 as part of Das Spiel der Hoffnung (The Game of Hope), a game of chance. (end Wikipedia)

I found that with the Lenormand cards, reading became easy and allowed psychic visions to flow more freely during a reading. Unlike the Tarot which is enshrouded with deep symbolism, psychology, and astrological elements, the Lenormand cards give straight and simple answers – “this is going to happen,” or “this is the situation in front of you.” They are also clear  and concise when someone wants a “yes” or “no” answer. Often, I will use a combination of both the Lenormand and the Tarot cards, consulting each deck for different aspects. Another method I may use during a reading is the use of a pendulum.

What is the fee for a card reading?

I personally don’t care for charging by the minute because I feel it puts sort of a “stop-watch” vibe to the reading. Instead, I choose to break up readings in chunks of time. A 15-minute reading will give you some pretty good information about a single topic. A 30-minute reading can take a topic into great depth (such as using both types of cards) or more than one question could be covered. A 60-minute reading is what I call a “Divination Session” where I am able to cover more than one question while using both decks of cards, the pendulum, and possibly other forms of divination.
