Lenormand Cards Surprising Prediction: Mountain, Scythe, Lilies, Letter, Ship, Coffin

If you’re like me, you probably do not particularly enjoy receiving a handful of dreary, dismal Lenormand cards in your daily card draw. Especially if you’ve only asked a generic, ‘how will my day go?’ type of question. For one thing, if you’re not careful, it could set the tone for the day, drawing negative outcomes through the principal of self-fulfilling prophecy — something I strongly suggest you should consciously attempt to avoid. After all, who wants to go through their day with a nagging cloud of doom and disaster hanging over their head?!

Certainly not me, which is why after pulling the following Lenormand Line of 5 with Base Card as my daily card draw a couple mornings ago and finding myself at a loss for any positive or helpful interpretations, I felt a little bummed out.

Q: Heads Up/ Need to Know/ Will Happen

Yes, I told you these cards were dreary…

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

News of a death (LETTER with SHIP, COFFIN)? A sudden and possibly unexpected (SCYTHE) passing (SHIP, COFFIN) of an older individual (LILIES), perhaps during surgery to remove an obstruction (MOUNTAIN + SCYTHE) that I learn about via text, email or news report (LETTER)?

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

Other than the above glum interpretation, I seemed to be drawing a blank. Despite the grim outlook, there was no way I was going to take these cards personally. Nope. Wasn’t gonna do it. Perhaps within a day or two I’d come across some news story or another that played out the particular scenario the Lenormand cards had suggested. In the meantime, I had better things to do, the first of which was making sure the Rescue Kitties got their second course of breakfast. 🙂

 

What Actually Happened

Later that morning, inspired by a sudden burst of energy, I found myself tackling an onerous chore I had been avoiding forever: serious clutter clearing.

With over two dozen boxes of old files and documents piled up in my living space, I knew I had to get started. Three hours and one huge box later, the message contained in the morning’s Lenormand card draw became crystal clear:

Shredding/ cutting down a “mountain” of old documents (MOUNTAIN, SCYTHE, LILIES, LETTER) and sending them off to their grave (SHIP, COFFIN)!!

Once again, I was blown away by the matter-of-fact, tell-it-like-it-is quality of Lenormand cards. As a long-time Tarot card reader, I admit I have a tendency to “dig deep.” With Lenormand cards, that’s really not necessary.

The moral of this post: Do not over-read Lenormand cards! 🙂

Note: I currently have transiting Pluto (purge, purging, recycling) in my natal Third House (paperwork)! — I really should have figured this one out… 🙂

 


 

Lenormand Cards Predict Art Show Sales: Coffin, Mice, Ring, Garden, Clover, Fish

I love it when the Lenormand cards turn out to be literal. You know, like when 18 Dog actually turns out to be a dog, or when 13 Child is actually a child.

I had such an experience this morning when I threw a Lenormand Line of 5 to get a “heads up” on how my son’s art show opening reception this evening would go.

Background

My son is an emerging artist who’s recently completed his second year of a three year graduate fine arts program out of state. In the past, he’s had some success showing and selling his work at regional venues. He’s back in town for a few weeks and the opening reception for his latest art show is this evening.

Beyond curious as to know what the sales potential for tonight’s festivities might be, I couldn’t help but throw a Lenormand Line of 5 with the Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand cards this morning to get the skinny.

Q: Art Show Reception Sales Potential

 

Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand 8 Coffin - 23 Mice - 25 Ring - 20 Garden - 2 Clover http://livingwithcards.com
Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand 8 Coffin – 23 Mice – 25 Ring – 20 Garden – 2 Clover – 34 Fish

Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand Orakelkarten – blaue Eule

The spread starts out with some fears and worries, perhaps some pre-show jitters, about low attendance or potential lack of sales (COFFIN + MICE). The central or hinge card, 25 Ring, however, augers “contracts,” and in combination with 34 Fish, these are likely sales. (FISH, in and of itself, is a money card, confirming that the cards are indeed addressing a money question.)

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

Note: As usual, I included the Base Card (bottom card of the shuffled deck), which I’ve found gives extra insight to the Lenormand Line of 5. In my experience, the base card either modifies the hinge (central) card or clarifies the focus of the reading. In this spread, it does both.

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

20 Garden can be interpreted as “a public event” and here represents the art show itself. 2 Clover ending the Lenormand Line of 5 suggests success and a positive, likely profitable, outcome.

In a nutshell, “stresses and fears that attendance may be low or that sales might be poor (COFFIN + MICE) will dissolve/ dissipate/ end (COFFIN). My son will “get lucky” and likely experience a profitable outcome (CLOVER). The show (GARDEN) will bring in sales (RING + FISH)”.

To gain clarification and/or additional information, I quickly added up the cards’ numerical values and reduced the sum to a number equaling 36* or less:

8 + 23 + 25 + 20 + 2 + 34 = 112 = 1 + 1 + 2 = 4 = 4 House

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

* 36 is the number of cards in a Lenormand deck. If I had been using a Tarot deck, I would have reduced the sum to a number equaling 22 or less, the number of Tarot cards in the Major Arcana.

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

 

I then found 4 House in the remaining deck and selected it along with the card before and the card after.

 

Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand 10 Scythe - 4 House - 31 Sun http://livingwithcards.com
Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand 10 Scythe – 4 House – 31 Sun

 

SCYTHE is literally “a cut.” HOUSE symbolizes the venue. Literally, “the house gets a cut” (their commission on sales) and everyone walks away happy (SUN).

I was pleased with the card draw and can hardly wait to see how this goes. I’ll let you know! 🙂

Stay tuned,

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins

Update

Woo Hoo!! Opening night was a success! SUN and CLOVER came through with flying colors 🙂 — Attendance was fabulous, sales were made (so oh yeah, the house got its cut), opportunities for future shows at other venues are likely, the gallery owner is extending the show dates … all in all very positive and my son is very pleased at how things went.

Lenormand Predicts Skylanders Game for Christmas: 12 Birds, 8 Coffin, 2 Clover, 1 Rider, 13 Child

If you’ve been reading Tarot cards, Lenormand cards, Playing cards or Oracle cards for a while now, you’ve likely noticed the cards are perfectly happy to answer pretty much any type of question. It’s just as valid to ask “Will I have fun at the party?” as it is to question whether or not your job is secure, your significant other is cheating on you, or if you’ll pass the real estate licensing exam.

For example, my 7 year old grandson really, really, really wants a particular Skylanders game for Christmas…


Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack – Wii U

And he’s really, really worried he won’t get it…

I decided to throw a few Mystical Lenormand cards to see what his prospects are:

12 Birds – 8 Coffin – 2 Clover – 1 Rider – 13 Child

This is one of the most direct, literal spreads I’ve ever thrown. Coffin ends things and Birds can show stress, anxiety or worry that is often short-lived. In the context of my question, I can see that Birds + Coffin easily translates to “Don’t worry!”

Clover is the central or hinge card, giving a very positive spin to this spread. Clover indicates good luck and positive opportunities. Followed by Rider, it’s easy to see that good things are on their way to my grandson (Child).

I had to smile at this very pleasant probable future. “Don’t worry, Sweetie,” I told him. “Just tell Santa you really, really, really want that game and I’m sure he’ll bring it to you.”

Of course, I’ll be sure to put in a good word with his mother…….

Lenormand Daily Draw: Mountain, Clouds, Paths, Tree, Child, Book, Coffin

When using Lenormand cards for my daily draw, I often throw a Line of 5, then select the base card (bottom card of the shuffled deck) for clarification or additional information.

This morning, after shuffling while asking the Lenormand cards to show me something that would happen today or something I needed to know, I inadvertently selected six cards for my Line of 5:

 

21 Mountain - 6 Clouds 22 Paths - 5 Tree - 13 Child - 26 Book - 8 Coffin
21 Mountain – 6 Clouds 22 Paths – 5 Tree – 13 Child – 26 Book – 8 Coffin

Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand (c) 2008 Konigsfurt-Urania

 

At first, I was unsure of how I wanted to deal with this unexpected situation. Should I disregard the mistakenly drawn 6th card? Use it as the base card showing clarification or additional information (even though I’d already peeked at the bottom card)?

I left it in the line up for several minutes as I contemplated what the cards might be telling me, keeping in mind the base card I had peeked at, 8 Coffin

Basically, I got the sense today would be a day of procrastination (Mountain + Clouds) with no clear focus (Clouds + Paths) and passing weather conditions (Clouds) — it was cloudy and rainy when I pulled my cards — and that maybe I’d go back to bed for a couple hours (8 Coffin as clarification or additional information), bored outta my mind (Tree).

I would probably lay low (Coffin), not much would get done (Mountain + Clouds + Paths), and I’d experience a slow, boring (Tree) day, at least until later in the afternoon when I would leave the house to pick up Grandson #1 (Child) from school (Book).

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

Note: After realizing the first three cards (Mountain + Clouds + Paths) went together, making the 4th card 5 Tree (slow, boring day) the central card of the spread, the reading quickly clarified and I had to “tip my hat” to my subconscious, which surely had orchestrated the selection of six, rather than five, cards.

 

What Actually Happened:

As the cards had suggested, the day started out slow and boring (Tree) and I didn’t accomplish much of anything (Mountain + Clouds + Paths). Somehow, however, I managed to stay out of bed (Coffin)!

Around lunchtime, the boredom (Tree) ended (Coffin) when I happened to notice a new book I’d purchased but hadn’t gotten around to reading laying on the kitchen table under a pile of paperwork. As I picked it up, I instantly realized Child + Book in the morning draw was completely literal: new (Child) book (Book). Also, as planned, I picked up my grandson (Child) from school (Book) later in the day, so the last two cards of what was supposed to be a five card draw wound up pulling double duty.

Lenormand Cards Discuss Birth of Twins: Letter, Tree, Snake, Gentleman, Sun, Bouquet

Yesterday afternoon I was anxiously awaiting news about the birth of a dear family friend’s twin girls. I had gotten a text from my younger daughter that the friend, who’d gone into the hospital early in the morning due to a health complication, was still in labor.

I asked the Lenormand cards what was going on and got:

 

27 Letter - 5 Tree - 7 Snake - 28 Gentleman - 31 Sun - 9 Bouquet
27 Letter – 5 Tree – 7 Snake – 28 Gentleman – 31 Sun – 9 Bouquet

Mystical Lenormand (c) 2005, 2007 – AGM-Muller

 

The cards suggested I would get a text (Letter) about a health complication or physical problem (Tree + Snake) that the doctor would successfully resolve (Gentleman + Sun with Tree).

The base card 9 Bouquet (bottom card of shuffled deck) suggested there would be a positive turn around (Snake + Bouquet) and I’d soon be hearing happy news (Bouquet + Letter).

Wanting to learn more about the babies, I found 13 Child in the deck and pulled the card before and three cards after:

15 Bear - 13 Child - 11 Whip - 10 Scythe - 8 Coffin
15 Bear – 13 Child – 11 Whip – 10 Scythe – 8 Coffin

Mystical Lenormand (c) 2005, 2007 – AGM-Muller

 

The cards indicated that the children were strong and healthy (Bear + Child) and the pregnancy would likely end (Coffin) after a painful surgery (Whip + Scythe). I surmised that a Cesarian section would occur.

 

What Actually Happened:

I received the happy news (Bouquet + Letter) early this morning. The doctor (Gentleman) had successfully (Sun) managed the mother’s health complication (Tree + Snake) and the twins were born yesterday evening.

Both babies are strong and healthy (Bear + Child). Baby A was delivered vaginally, while Baby B was delivered via Cesarian section, as the cards had suggested. 11 Whip correlates with the number 2 and it was the second twin that required surgical intervention.

Once again, the Lenormand cards amazed me with their accuracy.

As I write this post, Mom and babies are doing well and all of us are over the moon with happiness!
