I have been studying and working with the Lenormand cards for almost a year and half. A superb book, “The Secrets of the Lenormand Oracle” was released in 2007, by Sylvie Steinbach. One of the only books written in English, it is a very detailed, thought provoking system, that once mastered can give very precise readings on just about any subject. The author, has also created a support system for students in the creation of a virtual workshop at Aecletic Tarot, that will help students move beyond being a novice.
With diligence and practice, these cards can open up a new world of understanding. I have been a serious student of Tarot, most of my life, and have a great respect for them; but I have been blown away at the details and accuracy that the Lenormand cards can give in a reading!
Too many instances of direct hits reading for people that I have never met, have convinced me that this is probably the best oracle deck I’ve ever encountered.
I also have a love for the Playing Cards, the Sibilla, and the Kipper for the most part- with other decks grabbing my attention intermittently. I share my experiences of reading with these on my sister blog, The Card Lover.
I hadn’t planned on keeping two blogs! lol but the experience of writing about different draws and readings has helped me bond more intimately with the cards; and I’ve received alot of great feedback for opening up and sharing :)
Sometimes it’s hard to share about my personal life, and there have been times when I’ve needed to take a sabbatical when times were too tough- but I’m discovering that sharing helps focus my intent, and my understanding of the nuances of the cards.
I hope you will journey with me into the language of the Lenormand!
I would appreciate any insights you might have on some of my readings, as you might think of something that I’ve totally missed.
Thanks for visiting!
