Lenormand Keyword Chart.
Augh I have needed this.
I’m sure everyone who reads lenormand knows this but I would like to point out different schools disagree on meanings for such cards as the anchor, fox and lily!
In my deck the fox is contract or day job work, the anchor is long term engagements, and my lily is “love until death” since I use the whip as a sexual card |D
And when you get the fox and stork together, it can mean motherhood with a bite!
OH AND THE CROSS CAN MEAN LIKE FATED EVENTS which are like never fun but HOW COOL IS THAT
Idk I just fucking love lenormand DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON BIZARRE COMBINATIONS I WILL EXPOUND ALL DAY
Omfg but can you get started on bizarre combinations because I will read that all day. o_o
it FUCKS ME UP HOW CARD ORDER CHANGES EVERYTHING RIGHT LIKE
Man / ring / snake right at first glance I would say sure okay this bro is involved with some shit with the other woman. So tbh it could go either way either he’s marrying an older woman who is shady or he’s somehow involved, I would say based on the ring that SHE is probably the married one, so the affair or whatever is on her side even though this reading is probably for him based on his card
Ring / man / snake
Now he is probably the married one or the one with some type of obligation because we know the ring is not always marriage but CONTracts like he made have a business agreement or whatever and this snake person is showing up with fuck it up, or a married man is being tempted by whoever the snake person is because the snake is not always a lady. IN BOTH CASES I WOULD NEED MORE CARDS FOR CONTEXT BUT THAT IS LIKE JUST ONE INTERP AT THE TOP OF MY MIND FOR TWO COMBOS
Fucking amazing I love lenormand
And my other fav analogy is EVERYTHING IS BASED ON WHAT YOU PHRASE YOUR QUESTION AS
"Will my health improve"
Tree / coffin / fish wow sure the coffin might alarm you but your reading was for your health improving so the tree coffin here implies your struggles are coming to an end followed by by a rapid increase due to the fish
"Will my cancer resolve"
Tree / fish / coffin well this isn’t so good. This seems like your cancer cells increase eventually to the point where it’s possible the person will succumb, in fact lenormand seems to say this. But this is only just three cards
You might say but dusken fish is a good card and coffin can be read to the positive
But our client asked about their cancer, not their health
hEAVy lenormand breathing
AND SHIT LIKE THE CROSS LIKE EVERYONE GETS SCARED BUT LIKE
Cross / heart / ring like holy shit this is a karmic bond or a destined marriage or a soulmate situation
Heart/cross/ring oh. Oh this love is really a drain or a struggle to these people but they’re almost married to their pain and it’s going to be drawn out like carrying the cross
if you keep talking about Lenormand cards like this i’m gonna buy some
actually it’s too late, i’m already interested, it’s going to happen someday. the question is HOW SOON.
I’m digging this expounding, might you continue at some point? It too is making me want these cards because the layers is reminiscent of what my brain does with tarot no matter I do. Lol.
LAYERS LIKE AN ONION
Yeah I should probably write a proper thing on lenormand sometime because I always end up ranting about it on posts like these in all caps and never compiling it anywhere
Reblogging this version for the AMAZING commentary.
And yes, PLEASE write a proper lenormand thing duskenpath cuz I would read the crap out of it.
