Now that the basic keywords are laid out, I’m learning about how people are revealed in the Lenormand, not just through the two significator cards that represent the querent or their significant other (28 and 29), but also through using the playing card inserts. And the people descriptions aren’t restricted to the court card inserts, as you will see if you look at the Lenormand Dictionary page in the navigation bar above this post. There are some patterns, of course, in that the Queens are normally females, the Kings males, and the Jacks young people. But the individual card meanings are used to specify what kind of person may be represented, if the card is used to represent a person.
In the experimental reading I did using a king and queen as significators, with one other card to each side to describe them, I came up with this:
Just picked the first King and Queen I encountered in a previously shuffled deck. Turned out they were the same suit.
Bear/Fish (King of Diamonds)/Fox—He’s wealthy and claims to be protecting you, but look out for deception; he may not be what he seems, or, on a more positive take, he might be particularly clever wealthy guy. But since the Fox is to the right, I favor the first take (not that I really know what I’m doing yet….;))
Clouds/Road (Queen of Diamonds)/Dog—She’s a good friend, but her naivety could make her an easy target for an older guy with a hidden agenda, although since that influence is to the left, it may also be diminishing. This is an actual situation that I’m concerned about, which is kind of neat and affects my interpretation.
