Time ago I reviewed the other versions of this deck. This time I want to talk about the upright version of it. This is a cool deck because you can choose those cards that you like the most. (We’ll talk about it in a moment). This is Kendra’s Vintage Lenormand (Upright version).
It is printed on 310mg Printer Studio quality card stock. This means that it is easy and cool to shuffle the deck. Cards are strong and they can last for a long time. It has 67 cards, which means you have many choices inside. You have 3 different riders to choose from, 2 clovers, 2 ships and 1 train, 3 trees, 2 bouquets, 1 whip card and 1 broom card, 1 birds card and 2 owls cards, 2 child cards, 2 bears, 2 stars and 1 fireworks card, 2 storks, 2 dogs and 1 cat, 2 towers, 2 paths, 2 mice cards, 2 hearts, 2 males, 2 females, 2 fish cards, 2 anchors and 2 crosses. As extra cards you also get: the mirror, magick, social hour and wishbone.
These options makes it possible to personalize this deck according to the seasons. For example, during Christmas you can decide to use those images that are Christmas related, choosing the correct rider, tree, etc. Also, you can personalize it for Spring and Saint Valentine’s. This is cool because, while using the same deck, you can read different cards according to the seasons.
This deck can be used as a normal regular 36 card Lenormand, or you could add some spices to it using all the cards. But for doing so, please take a look to all the cards and notice the “time markers”. Your readings will become richer and wider. Thus, when deciding to use the whole deck, and use the extra possibilities as “time markers” for your reading, you are adding extra information to your readings. For example: a Christmas tree would point at Christmas, or a tree among shadows could point at the fall, while a tree in middle of the sunlight could point at summer time. You can also find Halloween cards which would point at that time. The extra card of Fireworks (stars) would also point at July (the 4th of July), while one path card points at spring and the other path card to the fall.
Not only the “time markers” will add another sphere to this deck, but the images themselves. I give you an example with the Moon card. We can see a lady sitting on the Moon and giving her to drink some alcohol. One of the meanings of the Moon is creativity. So, just taking a look to the image you can read “feed your creativity”. Another example would be one of the fish cards. We can see a fish, relaxing on a net, reading the newspaper and with glasses. Fish means money, and thus, just taking a look to the card we could read “take a rest since money is here”.
In short, this Lenormand deck allows you to use it in a very traditional way, or in a less traditional way. You can just read the Lennies, or you can decide to transform it into a great Oracle depending on your mood of the day. It is cool, because you choose what you want to do with the choices given to you with this deck.
Give it a try. It’s awesome!
