11/22/12-11/23/12—Affirming Your Growth

Thanksgiving/Black Friday Reading: Letter and Stork from Ciro Marchetti's Gilded Reverie Lenormand

Lenormand cards are read in pairs of two. The first card you draw is the noun and the second card is the adjective. This pair says that a message is coming your way. It could be something that changes your life, like finding out you're pregnant or you got the promotion. But what might be more likely is this scenario—you get together with your family and realize how much you've grown since the last time you were together. Or something happens to show you where you've evolved. 

It could even be that your message has been a long time coming. Letters are not email. They take time to arrive. You may not get the news you're hoping for as quickly as you'd hope. But it is coming. 

WARNING! This is where the reading ends and the cartomancy wonk talk starts.

If there's any doubt that the Lenormand oracle has taken the tarot world by storm, this will give you an idea. I ordered this deck two days ago, literally seconds after it was available for order. The first print run is now sold out. Fortunately it's not a limited edition, so he'll probably make another run if there's interest. This deck is typical of what you expect from Ciro Marchetti—luscious satin finish on high quality stock, luxurious hits of varnish on the decorative border, doubles of a few of the key cards so you can choose the ones that speak to you, and four extra cards resulting in a full 40-card deck. 

I'm a total newbie to Lenormand, so I invite my more knowledgeable friends to add to this interpretation if they want. Lenormand is unlike tarot in that you don't read it intuitively the same way you might tarot. There is less room for interpretation, but still plenty enough room to get it wrong. ;) I'll be back Friday evening with the Weekend Reading. Have a great Thanksgiving and Black Friday!
