This deck requires no prerequisite skill of reading the oracle cards. Its language is fascinating, as it is simple. It’s direct, candid and often blunt answers are often the need of the hour when we are in dilemma zone. 36 cards with direct and simple imagery, takes you through a gamut of human emotion, akin to a film as it were. Each card also has a playing card insert which adds another unique dimension to the cards.
The deck is named after Marie Ann Lenormand, a fortune teller of great repute who lived in the times of Napoleon Bonaparte. She predicted for him, his empress Josephine, as for other royals at the time. Steeped in a 200-year-old history, this deck gathers strength and repute as a powerful divinatory tool. A deck that dates back to 1800, finds a place in the museum in London.
