I’ve been filming a new Lenormand video series as a response to the requests of some of the viewers of my YouTube channel, and when that happens, working with the Lenormand for the weekly reading becomes a natural thing to do.
The deck is interesting because it consists of 52 cards (a standard deck of playing cards); 36 of the cards make up the standard Lenormand deck, and the remaining 16 cards come from a couple of cartomancy systems: The Gypsy Witch Cards and the Whitman Fortune Telling Cards.
But for the purposes of this week’s reading, I’m sticking with the traditional 36 cards of the Lenormand.
Now that I’ve shared the deck I’m working with, I’m taking it in hand and shuffling the cards, asking what we might expect for the week ahead.
The video below reveals the cards in the reading:
If you prefer to read the post, here it is:
The cards for the week are: Anchor, Sun, Clover, Fish, and Book.
Clover is a card that speaks of luck and fortune. I read Clover as opportunity, so having it in the center of line is a message to focus on opportunities that present themselves to us this week.
Clover can have a dual aspect to it; on the one side, these opportunities might seem like a chance that’s fortuitous (Clover can also suggest synchronicity at work), and on the other side, opportunities can come our way that seem more like taking a risk or a gamble.
And that would suggest taking the time to weigh the pros and cons of any opportunity that shows up.
However, Clover could also suggest that the time for consideration may be somewhat brief or short-term, because those are aspects of Clover in relation to time.
Clover can also refer to an attitude, and that would be happy go-lucky. Clover asks us to be a bit (Clover represents small, when it refers to size) more carefree and spontaneous (perhaps if you consider yourself not to be a risk-taker or gambler).
Maybe one of those possible opportunities will be the means for that change in attitude?
Looking at the Line
The cards immediately flanking Clover, Sun and Fish, form a pair that I read in a line as something more in-depth about the focus (Clover).
And that would be because Sun is a card that, for me, can represent “big luck,” where Clover can represent “little luck.” So it’s nice to see these cards, not only in the line together, but right next to each other.
Keeping with the luck aspect of both cards, Sun + Clover can also be read as “a lucky (Clover) day (Sun).”
Another way Sun validates Clover is with the message of an attitude change. Sun is a card of confidence, positive energy, and radiating a “sunny disposition,” all of which could contribute to becoming more “happy go-lucky.”
Fish, on the other side of Clover, can point to a more tangible opportunity, as it’s a card that talks about money and finances. So, Clover + Fish could suggest a financial opportunity or a chance for money.
Clover being a card of chance, with Fish, the possibility can be cash that comes from something like the lottery or sweepstakes. However, Clover, being a card that also refers to something small, the winnings might be more like that from a scratch-off ticket rather than a million-dollar jackpot.
And if you’re like me, and not the gambling type, then this bit of financial luck could be in the form of a bonus of some kind. And that would make sense if we consider Sun + Fish to mean a “payday,” suggesting a bonus in addition to income generated through work.
And that’s a nice way to segue to the outer cards in the line, Anchor and Book.
As a card of work, Anchor, for me, can suggest long-term work, work that may be somewhat hard (like physical and manual labor) or routine, but also affords (Fish) a sense of stability and security.
That sense of “payday” can be reflected in Anchor + Sun, which can be read as successful work.
Anchor is also a card of hope and perseverance, and as the first card in the line, can suggest sticking with something, as anchors keep things in place, keep them from moving on.
Anchor + Sun, in that light, could be read as hope and perseverance (Anchor) lead to success (Sun). And Anchor + Sun + Clover could be hope (Anchor) for a lucky day (Sun + Clover), as well as perseverance (Anchor) and confidence (Sun) lead to a lucky opportunity (Clover).
If we throw Fish into that, the cards are suggesting that sticking with something could pay off in a big way; it’s just a matter of being both hopeful and confident (staying positive).
Book is a card of knowledge, education, and learning. When I see Book at the end of a line, it immediately says to me that at the end of a situation (positioned at the end of the line), there will be some knowledge gained, some lesson learned (education is a learning process).
Book is also a card that indicates a project, so with Anchor there may be work connected to a project, which could also be the opportunity mentioned by Clover.
Anchor and Book could also suggest sticking with a particular project, and with Clover, it could be because the luck around it is about to change.
Fish has the insert of the King of Diamonds, and this can make Fish represent an entrepreneur. Fish + Book can then suggest a knowledgeable entrepreneur, or that entrepreneurship is being studied in some way.
Clover + Fish + Book could then be read as an opportunity (Clover) with an entrepreneur (Fish) to learn (Book) and gain knowledge (Book).
And on that note, I’ll go ahead and “close the book” on this week’s reading.
Hope your week is full of lucky opportunities!
