SHIP-from the French Cartomancy deck

INTRODUCTION TO LENORMAND CARTOMANCY with Joy Vernon. Monday, October 1, 2012. 7 – 9pm. $25.

Joy Vernon

The petit Lenormand oracle is a 36-card deck that developed in the nineteenth century as a game and a fortune-telling tool. Lenormand cards each contain a single, simple symbol, not the complex layered symbols of tarot. Many readers consider them to be less psychological and more straight-forward than tarot in the way they answer questions. This class will start with a brief overview of the history of Mademoiselle Lenormand and the cards which were named after her, and then we’ll learn some basic techniques for working with this interesting and historical cartomantic system. Bring your own Lenormand deck, borrow one of mine, or buy one at the store.

“Wow, how fun. The Lenormand system is a lot to learn and Joy made it seem very easy.” – Sherry P.

Joy Vernon suddenly became enamored of the Lenormand oracle in April of this year, and proceeded to buy fourteen Lenormand decks before bothering to learn how to read them. Her diligence in research and her intuitive understanding of divination systems combined with her optimistic confidence in all new endeavors had her instructing others in the system within a few months. Joy has been teaching energetic and esoteric modalities for over twenty years. She is one of the Psychics of Isis and teaches Tarot, Astrology, Qabalah and Traditional Japanese Reiki.
