Daily reading NĀ°1 about my trip in Paris, France

I am back from Paris, France and it has been wonderful. Cold weather but wonderful. I actually wished I could stay longer … I have made daily readings with my Lenormand cards. I don’t make daily readings usually. But here I just knew it would be interesting because I was taking a more than welcomed break from the routine. Thus the informations shown by the cards would be more interesting. I came to Paris on Friday end of the afternoon. My intention was to go out for the whole evening of course. Here are the cards :

the rider 01the birds 12the garden (20)the book 26the fish 34

the rider, the birds, the garden, the book, the fish

I am in a playful mode so I will update the post later on and keep the suspense a little bit … But what would be your take on this draw ? What happened that evening ? It would be interesting to use this draw as a sort of exercise šŸ˜€


*Edited to Add*

well you were close ! And this was so much fun : I think I will post the other daily draws I’ve been doing the same way. It is interesting to see your comments. Thank you so much for that.

The Rider was there I guess to point out the fact that I was about to go out and about … My direction was the Champs Elysees ! So quite a lot of people …. the Christmas lightning was just wonderful : it was eerie. I walked the Champs up and down, looking at the windows, and enjoying the surrounding of people. I actually went inside the Virgin Megastore. There was a huge screen, displaying a live concert. Funnily enough, as I was going around the store; I thought ; the sound is so good, one could think the concert is taking place right here. well …. Actually I found out it was the case …. It wasn’t a DVD for sale displayed on the screen, but the live concert by Elodie Frege. The people, the fun, the concert : the birds cards. The lively place : the birds and the garden. The store : the Garden Card. Inside of the store, I went to the book section. I found many book and yes I splurged totally. I found 2 books on the tarot, 1 on the Lenormand, the “elementary particles” by Michel Houellebecq, and 3 other books with beautiful drawings (there are supposed to be for kids but they are related to poetry, psychology, …; a book about Paris …. and Yes, I bought them all !!! The Book and the Fish : the many many many books šŸ˜€


The Book here and the Fish card were here not related to a dark stranger, but were to be taken literally in the case of the book, and the fish was to testify that they were many of them ! and of course, the splurge …
Those cards perfectly reflected the first part of my evening. I then went into a very fine restaurant and I celebrated with champagne and sea food. Cheers šŸ˜€

The rider : working on the card concept

One fun way to get to know your deck is to redraw the cards, or play with the concept of it. Here is a “flash card” that is being done around the first card of the Lenormand deck : the Rider. This card displays most of the key concepts associated with that card. Even if you know the meaning of the card already, it is a nice way to rediscover it and get a fresh view. You have to click on it to view it full size. If you are new to the deck, I think this is a nice way to work with a deck and let your creativity flow.

Hope you enjoy it ! Cheers

Lenormand cards : animals

This is a post about little pets and bigger ones too šŸ™‚ Some Lenormands cards can actually be related to animals and give you informations about them.

The obvious ones : the Dog ! And the Fish ! The Snake as well, of course. But the Snake may also stands for any kind of reptiles, geckos, … that kind of exotic animals. (Exotism is also indicated especially whenever the Ship is around). The Birds cards : little birds, poultry, owls … The Storks is for bigger birds. The Mice, apart for little mice, can be for hamsters, rats, weasel, beaver …
Maybe less obvious, the Fox can stands for Cats. For bigger animals the Bear is perfect. But the horse will be represented by the Rider.
The Tower may represent the refugee, the vet clinic. The Garden could be the place where you “train” the dog, or the horse. Actually, recently I had it in a reading and it stood for the zoo !

The rider (1)

The Rider is the first card in the Lenormand deck. What you see on the card : a man riding a horse. He is moving, going forward, active. He is usually the sign of receiving news, by the post or else, someone coming up your way. Whether the news is good or bad should be indicated by surrounding cards. It is an opportunity that may come your way, a sign that things are going forwards. Be prepared for a change. it shouldn’t be long before it get moving … Usually it represents a very short time frame. If you are for example waiting some news concerning a job, the feedback should be very soon. If the question is about love it is a good sign that new people are coming your way. It the question is related to your finances, you have new opportunities on your way. Finally if health related, it is a sign of vitality, someone active, if you have been sick it might be a sign that things are going better.
This is a basic description of what this card means, hope it helps,
