What Is Lenormand?

Lenormand is another powerful cartomancy that has been around for decades. Named after Marie Anne Lenormand, commonly known Mademoiselle Lenormand, a famous French fortune teller during the late 18th-19th centuries was considered by many to be the greatest cartomancer of all time. Her readings / predictions were so accurate that even Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte, became one of her avid clients.

Before I begin, let me first help you out on how Lenormand is pronounced:

I find this second video very helpful too.

In a nutshell, a Lenormand deck only has 36 cards unlike the Tarot which has 78 cards. Each cards have it's own unique meaning that when read altogether, the cards combined can form sentences layered with meanings - much like telling a story. A Lenormand reading tends to be more objective of what a person is doing and the results of their possible actions. It's often seen like watching a chess game: who is doing what to whom. A skilled reader can uncover secrets even ones unknown to the querent. You'll find the Lenormand albeit small in card size, quite blunt, direct and concise. It does not shy away from giving you insights for any future events in all areas of your life.
