My Lenormand notebook’s belly is starting to feel quite full lately! After initially resisting advice to begin my own notebook (for reasons unknown) I can now see why this is such an important exercise. The Lennie nerd in me is even having fun finding adjectives to describe and modify my subject cards! LOL!

Perhaps some of my initial resistance to the idea of keeping a notebook came from not really knowing where to begin, and what to add. There is just so much wonderful information available on the internet, that it can be seriously overwhelming for a beginner. So, here’s how I have organised my notebook. It is already clear to me that this will be the first volume of who-knows-how-many volumes to come in future. 🙂

My notebook is divided into the 36 cards, from #1 Rider to #36 Cross. Here is what I note in each:

  • Keywords
  • Adjectives (describing & modifying the subject/noun)
  • Combinations (although I am considering doing combos in a separate volume)
  • Timing
  • Health indicators
  • Personality descriptions
  • Physical appearance
  • Orientation
  • Playing Card inserts
  • German Suits
  • Negative / Positive / Neutral
  • Special groups (e.g: Work, Communication etc)
  • Spreads (e.g: Square of Nine, Grand Tableau) – again something I might record in a separate volume
  • Reading Techniques (Knighting, Mirroring, Near & Far etc)
  • Daily readings (separate notebook)

How is your Lenormand notebook coming along? Do you have any useful tips to share?


  1. Stacey, here is a list of nouns/adjectives for each card. The list is by no means complete, but it is a good start. https://tarottaxi.com/2013/10/14/jbrs-lenormand-journal-basic-keywords/

  2. Would it be possible to share a sample page as I’m starting to build my own notebook. I wish someone would share a list of nouns, verbs, and adjectives for each card as I would find that very helpful. 🙂

    • I would love to do this for you. but then I would have to translate every word I’ve come up with because I’m Dutch. I’ve just gathered words from different sources and divided them in the three words groups. I have set aside three pages for every card. In that way I can always add more words

  3. You have a lot written down in there. I have a computer program for all kinds of stuff about the cards but for me the most important is my little notebook. In there I’e written down for each card some nouns, verbs and adjectives to help me build my sentences 🙂

    • Thank you for that.. It’s a help with organizing my own notes. Im all over the place with doing that right now.
