Reading with the Blue Bird Lenormand Card Deck: Birds, Sun, Tree, Mountain, Heart, Woman

The Blue Bird Lenormand Cards by U.S. Games Systems, Inc. is a lovely little deck that is a pleasure to read and work with. The images on the cards are easily understandable and the verses imprinted on the cards are constructed to give a boost to intuitive insights. The enclosed LWB (Little White Book) by Stuart Kaplan includes a history of Mlle. Lenormand, a brief description of how to read the Grand Tableau (along with an example reading), and short descriptions of each of the 36 cards.

This morning I asked the Blue Bird Lenormand Cards to give advice and commentary on how to best achieve a particular goal during the upcoming months. I drew:

Q: Advice and Commentary on Achieving Goal:

******************************************

Note: As usual, I added a Base Card (bottom card of the shuffled deck) to the Lenormand Line of 5 for additional insights or information. Here we see 29 Woman which suggests the cards above it are of importance to the “female asking the question,” or are descriptive of the matter that is currently on the Woman’s mind. (I often get 29 Woman as a base card when asking a question that specifically involves myself. Take notice if you experience a similar correspondence, i.e., drawing a card that generally represents yourself when doing a personal reading, whether it falls as a base card or not. )

*******************************************

The spread is not hard to read.

BIRDS, which suggests thoughts, words, communication and mental activities in general, is followed by SUN + TREE, giving a sense of “healthy, vibrant thinking.”

While MOUNTAIN can describe delays and obstacles, the fact that it is followed by HEART relays the probability that these obstacles can be overcome.

The central or hinge card TREE suggests “health” or “growth,” which exactly symbolizes the question I had in mind.

***************************************

Always take note if one or more cards in the spread “confirm” the question you had in mind. To borrow an astrological term, that makes the reading “radical,” in my experience. While for me, the “confirmation” card typically falls in the central position or as the base card, it can appear anywhere in the spread, and I always take it as a confirmation that the cards are in fact addressing the question at hand.

****************************************

In the context of “goals,” BIRDS + SUN + TREE + MOUNTAIN + HEART suggests that positive thinking/ declaring the word/ speaking authoritatively, etc. are what is needed to achieve the goal in mind despite any obstacle or delay. HEART at the end of the Line of 5 ensures positive results.

What I’d particularly like to point out here is that with Lenormand cards, one does not need to spend a lot of time “figuring out” what the cards are “trying to say.” Lenormand cards are very here and now in their messages. There is no esoteric layer to muddle through as there may be with Tarot cards. You ask a question, you get an answer. With Lenormand cards, what you see is what you get, which is probably why I enjoy working with them so much.

Now while I won’t go into it here, if I wanted to get more detailed, psychological commentary on how to put the Lenormand’s advice into action, I could consult the Tarot cards for additional insights. But for the moment, I’m happy with the reading and am feeling energized (SUN) and pleased (HEART) about getting on with my day. 🙂

 

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins
