Lenormand Cheat Sheet

Through my years reading Lenormand cards, I’ve found it best to organize my “Lenormand Vocabulary” into nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs for the quickest recall and reference. I’ve distilled my personal favorite words and phrases into this spreadsheet that you can download and use as a jumping off point for your own Lenormand dictionary! I’ve also included notes on timing for each card — please understand that this is based on my own experience and understanding, not based on any traditional school of Lenormand cartomancy.

I have more free Lenormand resources here, or enroll in one of my online courses for a full immersion in Lenormand reading.
