Yes/No Lenormand Readings Using the Original Card Meanings
With Mary K Greer

Most questions, when reading short Lenormand spreads, are asked in a Yes-No format. While I avoid them with Tarot, the Lenormand cards seem ideally suited to respond and prove to be surprisingly accurate. While there are several methods, this class will focus on the approach that both I and many others have found to be most effective. You’ll learn how to ask your question in a way that eliminates confusion; get a straight answer of yes, no or undetermined; and expand on that answer with detailed information. I’ll also stress the basic meanings found in the original Lenormand instruction sheet from 1846 that came with nearly every Lenormand deck for nearly 150 years. Learn these meanings to gain clarity when determining your answers.

Lenormand and the power of fortunetelling
With Rana George

Fortunetelling is often covered with the stigma of fear. Revealing the unknown is scary to some, and we all have encountered the “I don’t want to know my future!”
This class is about taking back the power of fortunetelling and using it to benefit the querent. We will see how Lenormand can be used as a perfect tool in taking back the steering wheel.
Lets obliterate that stigma and look at fortunetelling with new eyes.

Holographic Readings…seeing the situation in 3D.
With Donnaleigh de LaRose


Lenormand and Tarot each have unique purposes and different perspectives. Can they both read all questions equally? Can they both say the same things for any question? Let’s explore what topics the two systems can share and which they can’t. When tension resides between the two system interpretations, let’s find out how to interpret the very important red flags we should not ignore that warn us about the difference between reality and imagination.

Method of distance, authentic Lenormand reading
With Björn Meuris.

Since the early years (mid-19th century) the Petit Lenormand’s game has been accompanied by a small booklet (or instruction sheet). Here you could then read how to tell the future.

This instruction booklet, even though very small, is undoubtedly the basis and starting point of the contemporary knowledge of the Petit Lenormand Methods. The “Instructions of the game” (the title of the book) which came with the cards, were until the first widely circulated books published (1980’s), the only written source and reference about how to use these cards. The original way to read the cards is what we now call “the Method of Distance.” This method is based on the logic that the closer a card falls to the Signifier Card, the more influence it has on the significator and the person getting the reading. .

If you internalized this original method on top of what you have already learned in other courses, you will be able to unravel all the information that is contained in a Grand Tableau! It will really help you to hear the real voice of Petit Lenormand, so you can better see the smaller practical cards in a spread. In short, the “Method of Distance” is the base of the Petit Lenormand’s methods. Moreover, this method is the Petit Lenormand’s and if you are a true lover of the most beautiful fortune telling, you shouldn’t miss this…

Confessions of a Self-Taught Lenormand Lover:
A Down and Out, Breaking All the Rules Approach to Reading the Cards
with Carrie Paris


I was a self taught Lenormand gal and this is due to the fact that I was given my first deck way before there were any books on the topic so I only had my intuition as my reading guide. As it turns out I discovered I was doing things close to what most trained readers do today, however my method involved a few more spreads and more recently, charm casting. Instead of following a schooled method, I got my kicks from combining Lenormand with tarot and other divination tools. This creates controversy, but I stand by the fact that the intuitive style to reading gives accurate results. If an intuitive approach to Lenormand is dubbed “not true to form” yet the end results turn out to be accurate, then perhaps there’s something else to consider— a third option that suggests we take a creative turn and add something new to the experience. In this class we will try our hand at non-Lenormand spreads and activities that work like a charm.
