To read Lenormand we need to know how to string keywords together to form a sentence or a combined meaning. We already know that Rider means: Messenger, News, Visitor, Speed; but Lenormand is best read in combinations. Here’s a list of what happens when we start adding cards to the Rider with the intention of making a sentence/combined meaning to describe what the two cards together are telling us. I welcome your interpretations in the comments! The best combos left by readers will be added to these (to make a kick-ass list!)
Sidenote: Rider is the ‘main’ card in these examples, therefore the other added cards will modify the Rider (rather than the other way around.) That is to say, the focus will be on the Rider card which will be influenced by the card used in combination with it.
Combinations: Rider + 1
Rider + Clover = Good news / Quick visitRider + Ship = International visitorRider + House = Visiting relativeRider + Tree = News of health (i.e: lab results)Rider + Clouds = Bad newsRider + Snake = Hurtful messageRider + Coffin = Restricted news (censored mail)Rider + Bouquet = A gift in the mailRider + Scythe = Abrupt messageRider + Whip = Spam (repeated mail)Rider + Birds = Phone messageRider + Child = Trustworthy newsRider + Fox = News of employmentRider + Bear = Message from the bossRider + Stars = EmailRider + Stork = News of a pregnancyRider + Dog = A visit from a friendRider + Tower = Official news reportRider +Garden = Social media / public message boardRider + Mountain = Intercepted (blocked) mailRider + Crossroad = Dual messageRider + Mice = Lost messageRider + Heart = Visit from a loverRider + Ring = Wedding invitationRider + Book = Amazon.com (mail order books)Rider + Letter = Mail deliveryRider + Man = Male visitorRider + Woman = Female visitorRider + Lily = A visit from grandfatherRider + Sun = Wikileaks (exposé)Rider + Moon = News about a famous personRider + Key = Password (access)Rider + Fish = Financial MailRider + Anchor = Reliable (stable) newsRider + Cross = Sad message
As you can see, these are only a few of many possible combinations. I look forward to seeing the combinations that you come up with; remember to post them in a comment so that we can all learn from and with one another.
