Descriptions du produit

For over 150 years, the 36-card Lenormand deck has been a popular divination tool around the world and it is rapidly becoming a phenomenon in the US. Rana George has used this deck since she was a child and is recognized as a leading Lenormand expert. Here she explores how you can use this deck to uncover practical answers and provide clear predictions on any topic: relationships, work, finances, family, and creativity. After describing meanings of individual cards, the approach changes. Rather than memorize endless card combinations, you will learn to interact with the pack directly through dynamic lessons that progress step by step to reveal useful advice and clear answers on anything from simple inquiries to critical dilemmas. Includes traditional reading methods, Rana's personal methods, multiple spreads, and ways to use the Lenormand with the tarot.

Best Lenormand guide to hit the shelves! 2 mars 2014
Par Jaymi Elford - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Disclaimer: I received an eARC from (but have purchased the ePub for my collection):

Lenormand is all the rage this year it seems. There have been many books published on the cartomancy technique this year, and I've read three of them. Rana George's book, The Essential Lenormand, is by far the easiest of the 3 to read and use for those beginning with the cards.

Rana George has used the cards all her life. She does not come from a tarot background as the other authors seem to come from. It's as if the cards are in her blood. She's been reading with them since she was a young girl in the Mediterranean area. And this book shows her passion, her wide range of knowledge and examples of the cards.

I loved this book. Her down to earth prose mirrors her speaking patterns (I happen to know her just a smidge). She uses real examples and tells you a single version (hers) of how to read the cards. The first section takes you through what each card means, how it can manifest in a wide variety of life-examples and she even shares stories of how the cards wove their magic in her life. The next part gives you exercises and ways for you to build your Lenormand muscles and reading formats. Then she goes into spreads and the Grand Tableau (the spread that uses all 36 cards), each with a real example and diagrams on how to read the many patterns with the cards. Finally, the book closes out with a series of Appendices that give history, quick reference sheets and more information about the Lenormand cards.

It's hard to find fault in this book. As it was an eARC from Llewellyn, there are some weird stuff going on but I can't wait for this to be released in 2014, for I will be buying a copy for my library.

Bottom Line: If you are a beginner and want a workbook to use with your Lenormand cards then get this book. It's that good. If you already know the cards but want to read real-life vignettes about other readers' experiences with the cards, then you'll also enjoy this book. Rana George is a great teacher and The Essential Lenormand is a fun read!

The only Lenormand Book you need - Learn from the Best! 16 mars 2014
Par Angelo Nasios - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I first heard about the Lenormand in 2012 at Readers Studio in New York. I saw little groups of people (Rana was among them) gathered at tables gazing over cards I never seen before. These were not Tarot cards nor where they oracle cards. These were Lenormand cards. What the heck is this? I thought to myself. Someone took the time to explain the cards to me and do a sample reading. I was skeptical and wary of trying to learn another divinatory system, “Ain't nobody got time for that” as I thought to myself.

The spread of Lenormand within the Tarot community was apparent. Groups were forming and growing online. New books and decks began to be published. The famed artist Ciro Marchetti (Gilded Tarot, Legacy of the Divine) created his own “Gilded Reverie Lenormand” which is the deck that got me to look into Lenormand. However, it is Rana George I can give credit for teaching me the Lenormand and now I see its real value.

The Essential Lenormand is the first book you should purchase to begin your Lenormand journey. It may even be the only book you will ever need. Rana is the perfect teacher for the subject, a dependable expert in the subject. Rana has been reading Lenormand practically her whole life. If you are going to learn something from someone it better be from someone who has being doing it for many years. Rana is this person. Her knowledge is vast and her ability to convey the Lenormand is effortless. Learning the Lenormand like any divination system is not easy, you need to practice but Rana’s gives you the ability to start reading Lenormand right away.

I have two other books on Lenormand but Rana’s has that “it” factor about it that makes it an enjoyable book to read and learn the Lenormand. Rana teaches that with the Lenormand when interpreting the cards, it is essential to keep your question in mind and answer only the question. Something I have to learn to do! Do not deviate into different subjects. The question is so important; it must be worded specifically to get a specific answer. Form questions that allow for concrete and descriptive answers.

Rana breaks down each card into different contexts for easy application of the meanings in a reading. Here is the breakdown,

Woman or Man
Health, Body and Spirit
Time and Timing
Advice or Action
Objects and Areas
Personal Anecdote
Traditional Meanings
Sample Reading

Rana also shares with you’re her personal knowledge which she has learned over the years. She uses nuances, themes or tones that certain cards appear to group into. Rana lists four Action, Portrait, Mood and Time. I would say these are kind of like elements in Tarot, Water, Fire, Earth and Air. When you see a certain nuance appear in a reading you can see what sees to be the main focus of tone. Much like elements influences the theme of Tarot reading.

Within each chapter of a card you will see meanings for all the contexts, which I listed above. Rana will also share with you a personal story about that card. She explains the card as it might mean within the Grand Tableau (the celtic cross of the Lenormand world, a spread which uses all 36 cards). Rana also gives you examples of card combinations, which is very helpful.

Rana includes nine Lenormand spreads. Rana spreads a whole section on how to use the Grand Tableau. This is a spread which while large can be an amazing experience.

I have to say that I think I finally found a system to explore my fortunetelling side. Being a Tarot reader I try not to use tart for fortunetelling. I think Tarot is not a good tool for fortunetelling in the traditional sense. It is more psychology dealing with the consciousness, subconscious, archetypes and spiritual lessons. Lenormand on the other hand is a fortunetelling system through and through. All the questions regarding the future that I would not use Tarot for is perfect for Lenormand.

Tarot and Lenormand pair up very nicely as well. You can use both systems together in a reading; Rana explains how to do this as well. You will find this under the Appendix section.

After reading The Essential Lenormand and putting the cards into action I quickly got direct and specific answers to my questions and validations of some concerns. Rana has made a convert of me. This Tarot guy is now riding the Lenormand train.

This book gets a BIG RED KISS of approval! 5 mars 2014

‘The Essential Lenormand’ by Rana George, due for release in March 2014 by Llewellyn Publications.

Reading this book is like experiencing a chocolate explosion in the mouth! Deliciously surprising and comfortingly familiar all at once. Rana George is our undisputed Lennie Guru, our Divination Diva. Just like Rana, her book is wholly unpretentious and patiently clear in its meaning. Finally! Lenormand demystified in a language and approach that speaks to even the most novice of readers. For those amongst us who have never read lenormand before, fear not. Armed with nothing but a deck of regular playing cards and this book you will have everything you need to begin immediately. Rana George is the fortune-telling ‘aunty’ we all wished we had, you know, the one that gives us the ‘inside scoop’ on outrageously successful fortune telling through years of authentic practice and divination. She has taken us under her wing!

With patience and in plain language, demonstrating real-life events with examples, Rana effortlessly steers us through these essential lenormand lessons. ‘This is Lenormand on steroids’ was what came to mind as I dove in, page after page. Where others have tried and perhaps not quite succeeded, Rana has waved her magic wand to create light at the end of the lenormand tunnel! Eureka!

In these pages she takes us through the benefits of reading lenormand and the process toward approaching our readings, to the correct way of structuring our questions. Along with her sagely advice on the importance of consistency in which she advocates the necessity of sticking to one system, allowing it to eventually evolve into our own personalised system, Rana guides us in an unambiguous manner that instils confidence in our abilities to replicate her expertise with ease, by steering us away from overwhelming confusion toward becoming confident and expert readers.

The detailed attention Rana George gives to each of the 36 cards in The Essential Lenormand is a treasure trove of wisdom and knowledge! As with words in any language (the meaning of which is dependent on the context in which they are spoken,) Rana goes through different meanings for each card in context to many different areas of use. These include: Predictions, mannerisms & personalities as described by the cards, work, love, health, finances, the ever elusive question of timing, advice or action oriented readings, negative & positive cards, finding lost objects, traditional meanings and she very preciously shares her personal anecdotes for each card too. This is truly a vast volume of in-depth and relevant meanings for each card which will greatly expand our lenormand vocabulary. Therefore this chapter alone makes The Essential Lenormand the most valuable English book available on this subject to date, in my opinion.

But, that’s not all! There is a whole section dedicated to spreads and techniques. I felt like a kid in a candy store! Anyone serious about lenormand will drool over this section of her book! Jam-packed with so much useful information that it serves to mentor each of us; taking us from beginners to masters of this art! Readers could not wish for a more practical, down-to-earth approach that keeps on surprising with jewels of knowledge and countless ah-hah moments! Rana’s chapter on the Grand Tableau, a spread that has intimidated many a reader before, is possibly the crown jewel in this priceless treasure. In the same charming style that gives absolute clarity and in-depth understanding throughout the book, Rana shares with us her personal approach to reading the Grand Tableau. This is huge! This is the mother-load of Grand Tableau tuition (minus the fear factor.) Finally there can no longer be an excuse to avoid becoming an expert lenormand reader, it would be almost impossible to miss the mark with this essential guide at our side.

Generously illustrated and expertly detailed without losing her readers, The Essential Lenormand is notably the most valuable book currently available to lenormand readers in the English speaking world today. This is more than just another book on lenormand, it is an absolute necessity for anyone who is considering lenormand as a divination tool, equally so for those readers who are already proficient in this system of fortune telling as even expert readers are guaranteed to learn something new!

Fair warning though, have a box of kleenex handy. Rana tells us about her lenormand beginnings in war-torn Beirut. Her tale reads like something from The Book Thief; richly embroidered with the romance of old-school family-taught divination during the angst of a bloody war that revealed both the best and worst of humanity in a very personal manner to this young impressionable girl. She tells us the tale of her humble beginnings as a child and hereditary fortune-teller who was at first almost surprised and apologetic about the accuracy of her predictions, and who then later was haunted by the same as the horrors of war brutalised her nearest and dearest. She lived through the horrifying effects of war not once, but twice as she first saw these events unfold in the cards before they manifested in a cruel savagery that deeply impacted her life in Beirut before immigrating to the USA with her remaining family. Rana shares her painful memories of these difficult years and tells how lenormand was a stabilising influence that comforted and empowered her. In later years she passed her astounding gift on to her 3 young sons who have each become gifted readers in their own right. Furthermore, in sharing her experience and expertise with lenormand though this beautiful book, our Lenormand Guru is passing the same on to us. We thank you Rana!

388 pages of pure genius. That is what you will get once you own a copy of what is sure to become the best-selling book in this genre for years to come. I give it 5 stars! Rana George wins the ‘Lenormand Oscars’ with this book. It will take nothing short of a miracle to surpass what she has shared in these precious pages.

Kinda like Rana’s darling red-lips trademark and her keep-it-simple-sweetheart approach, this book gets a BIG RED KISS of approval!

A Lenormand must have for the library 14 mars 2014
Par Mrs. D. L. Powell - Publié sur

She comes across with genuine warmth and I take my hat off to her for sharing such personal details of her life. It was truly humbling. With regards her teaching style, not once did I feel I was in a classroom. Not once did I feel preached to. She does indeed encourage us to find our own way, but gives us that starter for 10. Yet you fully understand when there is no leaway without feeling as though you have been on the end of some finger waving. She basically shares what has worked for her for many years, but you get the feeling she is not saying that is THE way. I love her for that. And I totally trust her wisdom as it based on so much experience. The spreads are simple, easy to follow and there are not too many of them. Each and every one of them I would enjoy using.

Then we came to the GT. I had some typed notes taken from online and other books I own, all step by step. I have done one GT following these steps and it felt strained. I felt obligated to use every single step in order to wring as much as I could from the spread. I truly was wondering at times why I was doing that. It was of value to those who had written up about it, so I must use it, right? (You have to remember - us newbies are going to be like sponges!) Those notes are out of the folder and binned. Rana's explanation and step by step guide was simpler yet I suspect I will not be lacking in detail by not using some of the ones I had previously noted. It was nice to read that she didn't often use the GT, and had only done so again recently. It is not the be all and end

With regards the card descriptions - lots of detail, but also in table form for other correlations such as items it could represent, descriptions of a person on a personality or physical level. And more. And lots of examples of how that card could be read when in a line with other cards, as well as example readings.

The appendices are also good. Useful tables of indicator cards, playing card inserts with reference to the courts as examples.

If anyone is on the fence about this book I would suggest hopping off it right now. The only way I can describe it is as being informative, illuminating, informal, refreshing and liberating. At times, also entertaining. I have heard Rana on podcasts, and she appeared friendly and relaxed through those broadcasts. Whilst reading the book, I could almost at times hear here voice and the occasional giggle. Great stuff!! I just know she is going to be in my corner as I forward my Lenormand journey, and I can go back to this book any time and know the guidance will be there to get me through any doubts or sticky patches.

My daily draw for the day I finished the book?? Stars / Heart / Ship. Yep, I am now inspired to enjoy the Lenormand journey :) Other teachings had left me feeling low in confidence and at times confused.

This book makes the Lenormand so accessible. I have been reading these cards for a while now and this book helped me see things even clearer. Rana George relates these cards to modern life while staying within a traditional framework (not an easy task). I love her personal stories about the cards. Highly recommended.
