Ah, the Lenormand Card Combinations.
As you’ll know, most of the time with Lenormand readings, you aren’t just reading cards individually. You’re reading Lenormand card combinations – the cards in pairs – in order to tell a story. To complicate matters, however, each card combination can have multiple meanings. I know when I first started reading Lenormand cards myself it was the card combinations that I felt least confident about, and I was forever searching through lists to check and try to remember them all. I also know how many of you head straight for my card combination lists when you visit Lozzy’s Lenormand. It’s great that you do, but wouldn’t you like to gain confidence in your own abilities and take it a step further?
Read on, and I’ll let you into the secret!
The #1 Secret To Reading Lenormand Card Combinations
The single best method I’ve learned for interpreting two Lenormand cards together is to use the first card as the noun – the thing, place or person – and the second as the adjective describing it to make a new phrase. For example, if you combine the following cards:
Ring + Sun
Ring = relationship; marriage; agreement; contract; payment = NOUN
Sun = success; happiness = NOUN; successful, happy = ADJECTIVE
Interpretations will depend on the context of the whole reading, so bear that in mind, but possible interpretations, depending on the context, would be:
Ring + Sun = happy relationship; successful marriage; successful contract etc
The meanings or emphasis will often change depending on which way round the cards appear. Sometimes it’s quite nuanced, but bear it in mind when you’re reading the cards. For example:
Sun + Ring (as opposed to Ring + Sun)
Sun = NOUN = success, happiness
Ring = ADJECTIVE = contracted; contractual; connected; obligated; relationship-related
Yes, this could still mean “relationship success, contract success.” But it could also mean that the success or happiness is contracted, or even obligated. So always check the surrounding cards for the context and nuance.
I found a fantastic video a while back from Donnaleigh, which demonstrates this really well. If you are familiar with the meanings of the cards, the exercise she suggests is a great one to try, especially if you’re trying to immerse yourself and become more independent with your readings. (and if you aren’t, check out my quiz below!)
Remember – the first card is the noun, the “what or who”, and the second the adjective, the description.
