Welcome to our walk in the Lenormand Park!
Depepi’s question for number 20: How do you feel when reading the Lenormand? Is it a different feeling compared with you reading the Tarot?
Yep, definitely. It’s going to take awhile, that’s for sure. Some readings come together nicely into phrases describing potential activities to be aware of, and sometimes, it’s hard to parse them because of the linguistic nature of the interpretive tradition. So, I stay in a very intellectual mode with this system compared to the often intuitive/visual thing going on with Tarot.
For example, this morning for my daily “what should I be aware of?” three card draw, I got the Tree, the Lady, and the Dog. The Tree in the “noun” position is what’s throwing me off right now. Am I going to have “friendly” health today? Oh, or maybe this: I need to be loyal to my fitness and healthy eating practices today to avoid problems. Ah-ha! See, it’s all about taking the series of standard meanings and weaving them together into a sentence or phrase advice or description of a situation.
Let me know what tricks you use to zero in on a phrase that makes sense to you.
