Today’s interactive Cartomancy workshop was an absolute success mainly due to the participation of the ladies attending. The workshop was fun because the participants enjoyed learning all about Lenormand Cartomancy which is slightly different from Reading the traditional Tarot cards. Actually, it is easier until you get into a full board layout which requires a solid understanding of the cards and the ability to merge the meanings (combos). I prefer the shorter layouts but will use all 36 cards to zoom into ‘themes’ surrounding myself.
A few more Learning the Lenormand Handbooks were sold. It was a joy to share my knowledge based on the last 4 or 5 years of practical experience. I offered short cuts, tips and demonstrated interpretive techniques.
I am always open to learning as well even though I have 4 decades of Reading experience. There is always something to learn in Cartomancy. One of the ladies at the workshop suggested a meaning for the Fox card based on her gut feeling, an intuitive flash. She felt this card represented a person who would try “get away” with something. A person who actually enjoyed putting people into predicaments just for the sport of it. A kind of prankster.
I asked the ladies to use their intuition when looking at the cards before I went ahead and suggested meanings. This process proved that at least 85% of the cards’ meanings could be ascertained by the imagery.
