I hope you aren’t tired of reading my readings about homes yet, becuase that’s the topic of this post. đŸ™‚

I confess having a hard time with this reading. Partly because my question might have been too fuzzy; I asked the cards to tell me about a particular home I’m seeing tonight, and anything I should know about it. And partly because I only had five hours of sleep, through no fault of my own. I’m going to give my thought process and break this down in “real time” as I write.

Without further ado, the cards are:


Book + Rider + House + Coffin + Clouds

The House, of course, represents the house I have in mind. This is a property whose location has some appeal, but this is also a disadvantage because the location is further away from the city in which I work. I’m not a fan of lengthy commute times.

The House is described by the Rider and the Coffin. The Coffin is not the best omen as far as I’m concerned, at least at first glance (and followed by the Clouds). Looking at this particular Rider card, I couldn’t help but notice the house set way back in the distance, off the road. I don’t normally read into a Lenormand card beyond the meaning of its symbol; that is, I don’t pay special attention to the rendering of an image in a given deck. Yet the connection jumped out at me. So the Rider may be emphasizing the travel required to and from this home daily.

On the right is the Coffin, which I could interpret three ways. The first — that this home is falling apart. The second is that it will end my search for a home, although with the Clouds following I don’t feel confident about this. The third is that I will be done with the house the minute I see it, for whatever reason.

I wasn’t necessarily looking for physical descriptions, but perhaps this suggests a modest house in a state of some disrepair.

Now, following the flow of action from left to right. The Book indicates paperwork, documents, or secrets. So there could be something unknown about this home, something I won’t know. Paperwork doesn’t seem to make sense in the past here, at least as applying to me; unless the home has some complication that would make it take longer to purchase.

The Rider makes me think this House was put up for sale due to whatever the Book indicates; or maybe that it was put on the market rather quickly (and recently). With the Coffin I see this home is not going to be considered for long, and because of the Clouds I’m likely to feel conflicted about this.

As a side note, I have found the Clouds came up for air- or circulation-related issues in homes so far: both for bad odor, and for damp basements. So this is another discouraging sign.

I hope my thought process was helpful, even though my reading leaves a couple of unknowns. If anyone else has a take, feel free to post in the comments, as always. I’ll leave feedback based on my actual experience visiting this house.


These cards were fairly accurate as far as I’m concerned. The home was recently put up for sale because the owners are getting a divorce, and I believe they would like to sell it sooner rather than later. That seems to fit the Book and Rider. The House is a bit further out west than I thought it was, which corresponds to the Rider as a descriptor. It also needs a bit of work on the outside, which looks a bit shabby, so that seems to fit in with the Coffin. I reluctantly decided I didn’t want to buy that home (Coffin and Clouds). I was rather torn because the location is wonderful, being near a lake. But seeing the work the home needs, and the increased commute time, don’t quite make up the difference.

This ended up being a more accurate reading than I’d expected.
