Lovesome Lenormand Keywords & Phrases

Lenormand as a cartomancy system is so much more literal than Tarot! The main thing I had to learn (or unlearn) when trying my hand at Lenormand, was not to look for layers beneath layers! Instead I find that the first thing that comes to mind when you see the cards is usually the right one – go with your gut, but should you get stuck, here are some keywords to help you on your way!

Please be advised that, as with my Lucid Tarot keywords, this is a Living Document that I will add to as I get to know my deck better – so check back in a while to see any additional interpretations!
