REVIEW: CELTIC LENORMAND
Updated: Apr 1, 2021
Unboxing, First Impressions & Review
I was taken at how 'Celtic'-looking this deck is. I'm an old soul so I do have a tendency resonating with medieval and ancient themed decks.
WHAT I LIKE:
1. THE ARTWORK & CARDSTOCK
This is a 45-card, pagan-themed Lenormand deck that combines the nature-based focus of pagan beliefs with the recent popularity of the Lenormand deck, these cards are located in the landscape of Brittany, in the North of France. Normally, a Lenormand deck only contains 36 cards, however, 9 additional cards have been created to offer same-sex gender combinations and gender balance to the “people” cards.
The illustrated guidebook has in-depth descriptions for each card include keywords, divinatory meanings, suggestions for spell use, timing, spiritual messages, dark and light aspects, and affirmations. It also presents interpretations based on the phases of the moon and the Wheel of the Year. It includes card spreads and instructions for several different methods of reading with the Celtic Lenormand deck..
I ordered the deck at Amazon.
Took almost a month before I was able to get it with plus a local tax of ₱112.00.
WHAT I HATE:
What I do love about this deck is that it contains two Tree cards for the God (the Oak and the Holly), three different Birds cards that reflect the three aspects of the Goddess (Maiden/Mother/Crone), an additional snake card that reflects the more positive aspects of the snake; a cat card (cats are traditional familiars); and four extra 'people' cards. The entire deck was very detailed and thorough for it shows even the moon phases, Celtic symbolisms and so on. If you have a mind to explore Lenormand in a deeper level, you can bet that you will learn a lot from this deck.
That concludes my review.
