Mystical Lenormand

Quality German tarot and oracle card publisher, AGM Urania, has published the "Mystical Lenormand", an inspired oracle card deck, designed by the medium, Regula Elizabeth Fiechter, with artwork by the skilled, Urban Trosch. Both creators are experienced card specialists. Fiechter created the Mystical Lenormand and Trosch has provided very competent artwork.

These cards feature 36 images which have their origins in fortune telling cards which were first produced circa 1800 and were used by the famous Parisienne card reader, Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand, known as The Sybil of Paris. She read the fortunes for Empress Josephine, Czar Alexander, Robespierre and Marat and others of the French Court, and now cards, based on her deck, are extremely popular. The ‘Mystical Lenormand’ cards have an antique French flavour; they are stylish, meaningful and well-conceived.

General divinatory guidance and card combinations are given in a little white booklet which is supplied in the pack, but the cards rely on the intuitive ability of the reader. The illustrative settings of the fine artworks by Urban Trosch are useful in this regard, lending ideas and insights to the reader. A stand alone book (which I contributed to) is available. It explains in detail the card symbolism, legend and card combinations. 

To read these cards, the information suggests looking at each card to consider personal associations and, to either use the guidance provided , or your own intuition. Shuffling, cutting, drawing and layout information is provided, and a suggestion that the reader should ask for a message to appear within a spread. There are several layouts; the 'Runway' spread or the drawing of a card for each day. 

The cards are slightly smaller than usual, which is useful when laying the entire deck on the table for an 'All Card Spread' reading. Each card is numbered and has an astrological designation. The reader looks at the chosen scene as though through a window, as if into another world. Animals are frequently featured. The Mystical Lenormand is a card deck that any card reader will find meditative and enlightening, not just in the short term, but as a deck of great depth and understanding that they will never tire of using.
