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!
