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
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
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
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
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
Heart- love, literal heart
Scorpio- This energy is about transformation, illness, and having a heavy heart.
Ring, Book, Letter
Sagittarius- studious, committed
Man, Woman, Lily
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
Aquarius- These three cards show how Aquarius is the sign of the collective consciousness.
Fish, Anchor, Cross
Cross= burden, spirituality
Pisces- They are the mystical mermaids of the zodiac, and find their sense of security and stability with spirituality.
