Lenormand is a deck of 36 cards which, despite its very French name, has its origins in late 18th century Germany. Over time, it has spread throughout Europe and beyond but never quite gained the popularity Tarot seems to enjoy. Still, it is in many ways one of the most accurate methods of prediction out there. Very honest, straightforward and to the point, it can also be quite blunt but with a humorous flair. It is perhaps the system I rely on the most when exploring potential solutions to my everyday concerns.

Given that, even now, the information on how to effectively and accurately read with Lenormand is not as widely available as it ought to be, it will be my aim to provide info, tips and tricks on how to best go about learning it on my blog. Below, you will find a concise guide to the basics of interpreting the cards to which I will, over time, add more.
