They shuffle like a dream and are printed on lovely linen stock, very durable.
They come with a plastic box to store them in, and 42 cards. The traditional 36 Lenormand cards, and an extra man, woman and the 4 elements, which are pictured below.
I decided to do a short little interview with them just to get to know them a bit, and give me something to blog about today. Excuse my pictures as they are not so great. I have yet to try to scan images and post them that way.
1. Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic?
I drew the book for this one. This deck's most important characteristic is its knowledge and discretion. It can keep secrets, just as easily as it can reveal them when asked the appropriate questions.
2. What are your strengths as a deck?
During the time that the Lenormand card system was first used, the anchor was employed to stabilize a ship during turbulent weather. It was also a sign that those aboard the ship had reached their destination safely. What a lovely strength to offer to us, indeed. Stability in the midst of our own storms.
3. What are your limits as a deck?
Here we have the heart, and star in combination, telling us that its limits are that it requires our love for divination, and our own personal intuition to receive clear messages. The cards don't have a voice unless we lend them our own.
4. What do you bring to the table -- what are you here to teach me?
The crossroads and fish tell us that this deck will offer to us an abundance of choices, and their likely outcome if we choose to follow certain paths to the finish line. Nothing is set in stone, and where there is a will, there is a way.
5. What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?
Aww, the dog made an appearance at just the right moment, assuring a friendship ahead. I could not be more happy.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
