Lenormand Reading: The Answer Line

On the heels of my _REVIEW_ of Rana George’s book The Essential Lenormand, I am doing some of the readings presented in the book as practice and to familiarize myself further with the Lenormand cards. This one is called The Answer Line. It uses five or seven cards. Rana mentions two Options for this spread: (1) Choose a focus card in advance or (2) Let the deck choose the focus card. I am going to focus on a relationship and the question I want to ask is, “Will the negative aspects of the relationship ever improve?”

I have chosen the Cross as the focus card. Using the French Cartomancy deck published by Lo Scarabeo, I am placing the Cross face up and drawing four other cards, placing two on each side of the Cross. Let’s see what I get.

French Cartomancy

ANCHOR (35) + CROSSROADS (22) + CROSS (36) + CLOVER (2) + MOON (32)

Rana’s instructions are to read the focus card with the cards that are flanking it first as a three-card focus.

CROSSROADS + CROSS + CLOVER

The negative aspects of the relationship stem from doubt and uncertainty about which direction to take (CROSSROADS), yet there is a possibility of reconciliation and second chances.

Next, I am to read the first two cards plus the focus card as a three-card set:

ANCHOR + CROSSROADS + CROSS

Stability, commitment, and trust are the foundation of this relationship and will influence the direction taken in an attempt to improve the negative aspects.

Finally, I read the focus card with the last two cards as a set of three:

CROSS + CLOVER + MOON

Again, the reassuring implications of CLOVER suggest a possibility of reconciliation and second chances. The MOON speaks of attraction and affection, reinforcing that positive message.

I see a great deal of promise in the ANCHOR, CLOVER, and MOON. It seems that the relationship is at a CROSSROADS and that the negative aspects of the relationship may cause problems (CROSS). However, I feel the answer to my question -- “Will the negative aspects of the relationship ever improve?” – is Yes.

What do you think?

    1. This spread is definitely the right size for me to work with at this stage in the (Lenormand) game. Could be quite a while before I work my way up to the Grand Tableau.
