Most Lenormand decks have the common image of a male riding a horse, heading either to the left or to the right of the card (sometimes not). The direction of the horseman should be kept in consideration. Part of the reason for studying the direction is so you can determine if this news is expected (horseman faces to the left) or if it is something entirely new (horseman faces to the right). You don’t have to read the directions but do so if the person asks you to be more specific. News is coming either way.
The Rider can represent a new encounter (love interest) and you’ll get a “rush” from the experience. The length of contact cannot be measured by just the appearance of the Rider card. Look at the cards following the Rider for time indicators. 2′s- Whip, Birds, etc. Moon – 4 weeks and so on
The Rider card can bring in waves of news or info that could sweep you off your feet if you are not grounded. You can expect increased momentum to any situation.
Be careful what you wish for (9♥) as your thoughts may bring the Rider to your doorstep in ways you don’t expect.
