The Lenormand Oracle
Like the Tarot, the Petit Lenormand deck is a form of card divination. The oracle card deck consists of 36 images that are used in combinations to extrapolate meaning. By doing so, one can identify past, present and future impacts on the querent’s life. Lenormand is diverse; it can be used to address life’s deep issues or for mundane inquiries. This provides opportunities to reflect on major issues or have a little fun at a party or gathering.
The origins of the Lenormand Oracle stem from the reputation of Mlle. Lenormand, an infamous card reader who died in 1843. The Grand Lenormand and the Petit Lenormand were named after her and published not long after her death. It is said that she used a 32 card system and tarot as well, though no one knows exactly what she used. Some of her clients were high profile figures and later in her life she took to writing.
Under the Roses Lenormand is a quality deck that is full of inspirational artwork. It contains 36 images based on the Petit Lenormand, an alternate Lady and Gentleman card, and 4 informational cards. It is designed to stimulate the imagination while at the same time making the reading of the cards something even a beginner can do.
