REVIEW: CELTIC LENORMAND

December 26, 2016

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.

I am loving the details on each cards. The artist, Will Worthington, is a well known artist in the Tarot Community who illustrated popular decks such as The Druid Animal Oracle by Philip Carr-Gomm and Stephanie Carr-Gomm (Touchstone), The Wildwood Tarot by Mark Ryan and John Matthews (Sterling Ethos), and The Druidcraft Tarot by Philip Carr-Gomm and Stephanie Carr-Gomm (St. Martin's Press) to name a few.

2. CARD STOCK

The cards are so cute in 2-1/4 by 3-1/2 inches and made of sturdy card stock. Comes with a handy guidebook too.

3. AVAILABILITY

I ordered the deck at Amazon.

4. SHIPPING

Took almost a month before I was able to get it with plus a local tax of ₱112.00.

5. THE INTERVIEW.

INTRODUCE YOURSELF: Man

I was surprised that this deck introduced itself as a Man (because obviously it looks more of woman - aesthetically speaking). Then again, I am quite pleased that it would be a logical deck rather than an emotional one.

WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS? Heart

For a deck that introduces itself as a man then now the Heart as its strength is a bit bizarre. I'm excited to do readings that would clear matters of the heart from a logical mind.

WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITATIONS? Scythe

The deck is limited when you are asking or seeking answers with emotional questions such as wishing or hoping. Again, the deck emits more of rational or logical - masculine energy.

WHAT CAN I LEARN FROM YOU? Clouds

The clouds represents a need to be honest and to wake up, to pay attention and to focus.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONNECT WITH YOU? Mice

The Sun (like in Tarot) is a positive card. This deck's very useful when you wish to achieve something, increase your confidence and realize your full potential.

OUTCOME OF OUR RELATIONSHIP: Birds

There may be a sense of restlessness in the relationship. I get it. Lenormand reading here is not at all popular so using this for client readings may be

WHAT I HATE:

It's smaller than your usual deck.

 

SCORE: ★★★★★

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.
