My friends who regularly read certain oracle cards often get literal readings. This is a reading where the symbol depicted on the oracle card turns out to mean that thing, rather than what the symbol stands for. I’ve noticed this is somewhat common with the Lenormand, and especially the Gipsy (Zigeuner Wahrsagekarten), oracle decks. Yet it can happen with the tarot as well.

The Lenormand Ring is the card for relationships and partnerships, whether romantic or otherwise. Thus is can talk about a marriage, a partner, a business deal or the contract involved with purchase of a home. If reading about a romantic relationship, Ring is one of the primary cards to consider, as it speaks to the relationship itself.


In question of romance, the Heart can be considered as well, and this is about someone’s actual feelings. So the Heart is a person’s heart, or emotional state; versus the Ring representing the actual relationship. This is important to distinguish because not all relationships are happy ones. Think of the happiness of a mutually enamored couple who are recently engaged, versus a married couple with both spouses having affairs. Both people might show signs of commitment by the Ring, but very different circumstances around the Heart.


For questions about a business deal involving a partnership or contract, Ring would be a primary card, although looking into financial aspects — for me, the Fish — would also be helpful. Think of a business contract worth thousands: the Ring could show mutual satisfaction with the deal itself, but the Fish could be near cards that indicate loss of money, to warn of the outcome.

Generally, more than one “key” or “significator” card can be considered for any given situation, and looking at more than one allows the cartomantic detective to apply proper due diligence, hopefully achieving a more accurate answer for the questioner regarding any situation.

I had some some thinking recently on how I would work out combinations that involved a few of the negative cards in the Lenormand deck. Here is how I would read these pairs.

Cross + Anchor: Work is increasing and becoming a burden. Overworked.

Mountain + Coffin: Ending of obstacles. But not necessarily in a good way. Could indicate giving up.

Fox + Fish: Underhanded money deal; bad money (counterfeit).

Cross + Mountain: Obstacles ahead are so large as to be insurmountable; one would need to be a “superman” to overcome them.

Mountain + Cross: Obstacles are one’s burden to bear.

Cross + Fox: Major fraud or deception going on. Someone is screwing the subject over.

Fox + Cross: Some relatively minor deception is going on, but may be almost over with.

Cross + Fish: Money is a great burden. It would seem that the subject has more money, but because of the Cross that’s not a good thing.

Fish + Cross: Diminished cashflow.

Fish + Coffin: Going broke.

Coffin + Fish: Loss of money through ill health, or stress about money problems. If Coffin makes this combo negative, then the money has a negative aspect. Ill health and monetary loss would suggest health-related unemployment to me, even though Fish is not work in this case. Stress seems likely too.

Coming up with practice pairs is a helpful way to become acquainted with combining Lenormand cards. Regardless of which tradition one follows, combination is essential to reading these cards.
