Mystical Lenormand

Quality German tarot and oracle card publisher, AGM Urania has produced 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 Kipper cards (and others), and Trosch has provided very competent artwork for the Mystical Kipper (and others).

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 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 in intuitive ability of the reader. The illustrative settings of the fine artworks are useful in this regard, lending ideas and insights to the reader. A stand alone book is available which explains in detail about 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 use 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 and the reader looks at the chosen scene as thought 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 the reader will never tire of using.
