An Astrological Journey with Lenormand

I have been divining with Lenormand cards for a while now, and I have noticed the zodiac within the cards themselves. I haven’t found any other information about this anywhere, so I thought I would share it here on my blog. Lenormand consists of 36 cards or 38 depending on the deck you use. I have discovered that the first 3 cards of the desk corresponds to Aries, the next 3 Taurus and so on. The meanings of the cards echo the archetypes of the zodiac. Let’s take a look.

 

Rider, Clover, Ship

Rider= quickening movement, a message is on its way

Clover= small little luck

Ship= a journey

Aries-= quick, small, a new journey. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and corresponds to fast energy since it’s ruled by Mars. Aries energy also denotes a smaller burst of energy because it’s the baby of the zodiac who is about to embark on a new journey.

 

House, Tree,  Clouds

House= literal house, or family

Tree= good health, stability, new growth

Clouds= confusion, deception, blurry vision

Taurus= An an earth sign, Taurus loves the home and garden, but their love of money and luxury can distort their perspectives.

 

Snake, Coffin, Bouquet

Snake= deception

Coffin= literal death, rebirth

Bouquet- a lovely gift

Gemini-  Gemini’s can be deceptive as they are the best at playing mind games and can be a little two-faced at times like a two headed snake. Since Gemini rules over some of May and almost all of June, they are associated with Spring.

 

Scythe, Whip, Birds

Scythe- something being cut, removed

Whip- stinging feelings

Birds- chatter, communication

Cancer- As by far one of the most emotional signs in Astrology, Cancers often remove themselves from situations and relationships that become toxic or overbearing for them. As empaths, they feel emotions from other people that can clutter their energy fields, making them feel literally sick. As the mother archetype, a lot of Cancers are afraid to leave the nest, and would love to have their own children to nurture and raise.

 

Child, Fox, Bear

Child- youthful energy, new beginnings

Fox- trickery

Bear- big money, boss

Leo- Leo energy is all about embracing the inner child. They can also be a little sneaky and can me motivated by ulterior motives.  Leoline energy is also loud and proud, and expect to live like royals.

 

Star, Stork, Dog

Stars- destiny, wish fulfillment

Stork- delivery, baby

Dog- loyal

Virgo-  Virgo energy is pure, spiritual, and loyal. The stork symbolism corresponds to the Virgin archetype of this sign.

 

Tower, Garden, Mountain

Tower- institution, money, corporations, court house

Garden- community

Mountain- obstacles

Libra- Libran energy is associated with institutions, communities, and obstacles, as their is a give and take that correlates to the 1st and 7th house axis.

 

Crossroads, Mice, Heart

Crossroads- a decision to make

Mice- illness

Heart- love, literal heart

Scorpio- This energy is about transformation, illness, and having a heavy heart.

 

Ring, Book, Letter

Ring- comittment

Book- studies

Letter- correspondence

Sagittarius- studious, committed

 

Man, Woman, Lily

Man= Man

Woman= Woman

Lily= long time, long term

Capricorn- Capricorns have a nice dose of both masculine and feminine energies as they are able to combine the outward expression of masculine energy with the intuitive know how of the feminine. Capricorns take their time in life, slowly working their way up the mountain.

Sun, Moon, Key

Sun= joy

Moon= attention

Key- answer

Aquarius- These three cards show how Aquarius is the sign of the collective consciousness.

 

Fish, Anchor, Cross

Fish= money

Anchor= stability

Cross= burden, spirituality
Pisces- They are the mystical mermaids of the zodiac, and find their sense of security and stability with spirituality.

May 2017 Lenormand Readings

Hi all, I have been using Lenormand for a while now and thought I would do a reading for the month of May for each rising sign. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Lenormand, they are fortune telling cards very different from Tarot. Lenormand are very specific and are less psychological based. When reading Lenormand you do not decode the symbolism or imagery of the cards, you simply read them like a sentence. Please read your forecast down below for your Rising Sign only.

 

Aries Rising- Dog + Cross

A friend who has been loyal to you is now going to become burdensome. They might be more needy or are going through a dark period in their life. Be a good friend to them.

Taurus Rising- Anchor + Key

Something that will bring you stability in your life in May is going to give you all the answers you need. If something feels comfortable, now that it is telling you everything will be fine.

Gemini Rising- Letter + Tree + Key

Gemini Risings will be receiving some news about their health, perhaps test results will be coming to you. Know that whatever information you receive about your health is going to be very good. This can also indicate some information coming to you regarding your family. It will also be positive in nature.

Cancer Rising- Coffin + Tree + Lady + Letter

You will be going through a rebirthing phase in May and or a younger woman in your life will be. You will receive some news that will spark the new growth in your life.

Leo Rising- Snake + Lady

Be on the lookout for an untrustworthy deceptive lady. It is going to be someone who is not so obvious, so be extra cautious with who you trust.

Virgo Rising- Dog + Tree

Something new has begun for you in your life and you can depend on it this month.

Libra Rising- Bouquet + Book

Libra Risings will be receiving a book or educational pursuit this month. In May you will have an opportunity to learn something new.

Scorpio Rising- House + Mountain + Tree + Fish

Home life will have some troubles that you will overcome and will receive some money and abundance as a result. Perhaps a home repair will bring you some money.

Sagittarius Rising- Stork + Garden

You will be traveling to a celebration or will be joining a community activity or organization.

Capricorn Rising- Key + Ship + Cross

If you have been contemplating going on a trip or new journey will be favourable for you. You might encounter some psychological burdens with regards to this journey, so be mindful of your thoughts.

Aquarius Rising- Whip + Mountains + Bear

You will be faced with a conflict that won’t be so easy to overcome. The conflict will be associated with someone of power and affluence, most likely your boss.

Pisces Rising- Snake + Mountain + Lilies + Moon

Something will deceive you that is going to take a long time to rectify. The spotlight will be on you, so be careful someone doesn’t blame you for the deception. Be careful of your night life, as the snake can present itself as someone who you socialize with at night or work with at night.

I just did my own reading, and wow, it was very reflective and insightful!

A Judgement Card question for all you Tarot readers…

I recently had the Judgement card pulled in a love spread, indicating a type of love interest, potentially coming into my life. There is a lot of information about the Judgement card out there, but not when it comes to describing a person/suitor. From what I have researched, it can indicate a karmic relationship, and a soul mate. It can also indicate someone who has gone through some kind of awakening, and can help to facilitate my spiritual growth. The Judgement card also describes someone who works in the field of law or ethics, has a good judge of character, and has strong Plutonian aspects in their natal chart, he could potentially be a Scorpio.

I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions as to what the Judgement card means when describing a potential partner?
