What customers are saying about Celtic Lenormand

The Celtic Lenormand is an interesting take on Lenormand created by Chloë McCracken and Will Worthington.  It expands, stretches and allows for a customized reading with the extra cards that have been added.

In your kit you will get 45 cards and a guidebook in a sturdy box.  The card size is perfect for Lenormand style decks and the finish on the cards allows for smooth shuffling.  The guidebook explains what makes this is a pagan-themed deck.

The guidebook for The Celtic Lenormand far exceeds the “little white book” that we usually find with decks.  For example each card-even the extra cards have extensive keywords, timing, person, playing card association, description, meanings, spiritual readings, dark and light, spell use, affirmation and deity.

There are 13 illustrated layouts in the guidebook and a small section on combining cards.

I recommend this deck to anyone who has an interest in Lenormand decks and especially to those who walk the pagan path.  With the added cards you can customize your readings to fit almost any relationship dynamic. If you want a more traditional reading you can remove the extra cards.  I am impressed with this deck, the guidebook and the extensive information provided.

—Mary Nale, Attune Magazine


As a follower of Chloë McCracken’s blog Inner Whispers, a fan of Will Worthington’s art, and a lover of all things Celtic, I was pretty sure I was going to like the Celtic Lenormand. As it turns out, I don’t just like it, I love it. The art is exquisite, as expected, and Chloë delivers much more in the accompanying book than I could have imagined. I am looking forward to trying some of the spreads provided in the book and sharing them on my blog,Tarot Notes.

The images are Celtic versions of the traditional Lenormand deck images. In addition, symbolism shown in the images is designed to represent important aspects of the pagan path and perception of the world. The eight sabbats are represented, as are the phases of the moon. Specific cards are included for the god and goddess, as well as suggestions for deities appropriate to the other cards. The deck contains two tree cards for the God (the Oak and the Holly), three different Birds cards that reflect the three aspects of the Goddess (Maiden/Mother/Crone), an additional snake card that reflects the more positive aspects of the snake; a cat card (cats are traditional familiars); and four additional “people” cards.

The backdrop for the cards in the Celtic Lenormand is the landscape of Brittany, in the north of France. The colors are intense, expressing a variety of tones or moods. The images are sharp, clear, and realistic.

Zanna Starr, Tarot Notes


This creative and beautifully illustrated deck of 45 cards parlays the popular Lenormand deck into a new and unique divinatory tool. Nine cards have been added to the standard Lenormand lineup and the images have all been related to Celtic tradition. The deck reflects the pantheon of pagan gods and goddesses, the phases of the moon, the Wheel of the Year, and the natural elements.

Those who are seasoned Lenormand readers can use the standard 36 cards but find them enhanced by Worthington’s spectacular renderings. More free-spirited readers can add the additional cards when they do a reading, or leave them out as they choose.

In addition to the usual keywords and divinatory meanings, the 188-page guidebook contains associations for traditional playing cards and Celtic deities, affirmations, and special spiritual interpretations. If you love oracle decks, don’t miss this one!

Really a great deck. I love the artwork that was used to create this deck. Very lovely art with an Old World feel to the deck. It comes in a very sturdy box and easy to open. The booklet that comes with has a lot of information. This deck was very well thought out by its creators. I am very happy to have this deck.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DREAMING WAY LENORMAND

I was so excited when I received this deck today!! I had only been able to see three of the cards through the Internet and was anxious to see if all the cards would be as lovely. The answer is yes!! The cards are simple and gorgeous!! The art is a little funky but that is one of this decks charms. The entire package is first rate. The box is sturdy, yet beautifully done. The LWB (little white book/guide book) is so cute. I can't believe they took the time and made such a finely made LWB. The cards are more than I could have asked for. Big simple images (which is important in Lenormand readings) that are whimsical, artful, and fun. I have seen lots and lots of Lenormand deck. I have quite a few. But this deck is my favorite BY FAR!!! Can't wait to try them out!!!

— Customer


I'm a professional graphic designer/art director who studied art and design in college. I know what I like. I also happen to be married to a tarot luminary who is a deck collector, so I do have a fair bit of exposure to the world of divinatory decks.

The Dreaming Way Lenormand is a GORGEOUS package! The production values are off the charts. I find the card stock and solid packaging to be first rate. Definitely collectible. The sturdy box is thoughtfully designed and nicely printed. The booklet has a thick, full-color card-stock cover, and the printing is top-notch. Kudos to the designer. And yes, Lynn Araujo's introduction and the card descriptions are superb. The writing is smooth and lyrical and perfectly compliments artist Kwon Shina's work. This will be a deck I will use while learning the Lenormand system. The reflective quotes for each card are well thought-out. For example, the Garden (20) card has a Charles de Lint quote that states, "I do believe in an everyday sort of magic --- the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works or art and the like." All-in-all, the design of both the cards and the LWB are done with a very professional and informed touch.

The cards themselves feel wonderful in my hands. They're printed on thick stock and have impactful imagery. I really dig the recurring cloud motif. The Duchampe-esque card-back is nothing short of magical! The card imagery ranges from very straightforward (clover, house, tree) to more complex art that tells a story the longer you look at it (birds, bear, mice, fish). The Dog card truly captures a sense of loyalty with its unique presentation. Some standouts for me are Clouds, Coffin and Bird. There is a lot to explore here, lending to more expansive readings as the user becomes more familiar with the cards. This is a must-have for Lenormand fans and anyone who loves art that evokes a sense of wonder and playful surrealism without deviating from core meanings as described in the book. As a beginner, both art and writing provide the perfect platform for easy reading with a captivating twist.

— Kort Kramer, Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer


Who can resist the blend of Lenormand cards, Kwon Shina’s art (which I knew and loved from the Dreaming Way Tarot published by U.S. Games), and commentary by the accomplished Lynn Araujo? Yes, I was “predisposed” to like (love) this deck – but I think maybe you are, too!

Anyway, for those of you convinced that there were a limited number of ways the Lenormand cards could be presented and they’d all been done, Kwon Shina didn’t get the memo. Her Bear (card 15) is a person covering his or her face with a bear mask; her Fish (on card 34) seem to be flying rather than swimming, protected from the elements by a large umbrella; her Book (card 26) has an open door carved out of one side. The Fox (card 14) is draped over the shoulder of a woman as if it is her pet or part of her apparel. Exploring each card is a delight and a challenge.

Araujo’s Little White Book is written in a clear, concise style that imparts a lot of information without droning on and on. The Introduction brings us into the process and elements involved in the creation of the deck. I really like the idea of using quotations from famous people to represent each card and the quotations that were chosen. 

Card backs feature a row of houses and a whimsical, jester-type figure in a butterfly mask. The figure is repeated randomly in various sizes and places – in the sky, on the roof, etc. I get the impression that the figures are rising continuously from the ground into the air, pausing occasionally to pose on a rooftop. I suppose they could also be floating downward to land on the ground. Or both at the same time!

The Little White Book includes an information Introduction by author Lynn Araujo, who also provides a two-page spread on each card featuring the card number, title, and playing card association; a quotation; a description/discussion of the card meaning; and a set of keywords.  Araujo’s clear, direct writing style is perfect for seasoned Lenormand readers as well as beginners.

A section in the back of the booklet titled “Reading with Dreaming Way Lenormand” offers examples of a 2-card spread, a line of five cards, and the Spiral Spread, which can be done with any number of cards (ten cards or more seems ideal).

This very sweet deck is the original artwork of Kwan Shina whom you may know of from the Dreaming Way Tarot Deck. The accompanying booklet is written by Lynn Araujo.

This deck differs from so many others, like Maybe Lenormand, in that it is original artwork – no photoshopping a deck here and I so appreciate that.  The colors are light and bright for the most part, no cards in this deck have a dark feel which many will appreciate.

You will also get a vibe that this deck is whimsical, it has an almost fairytale feel to it.  This again will be appreciated by those who don’t like the more “traditional” looking decks and want something more suited for their tastes of a more “current” style of Lenormand deck. The cards all have the playing card noted in the lower bottom of the cards after the cards name, the traditional Lenormand number of the cards is top center.  The way this information was included (and I strongly feel playing card info is needed on all Lenormand decks) was  included does not detract from the look of the artwork which can happen.

I spent sometime working with this and first thing to note is these are poker size cards 2.5 X3.5 inches.  The quality of the card stock is good and the deck does shuffle well – something important – at least to me.  They come in a very sturdy box that will protect them well and I actually used the box lid upside down as a book holder for the LWB as I was getting acquainted the cards.

All in all the imagination and almost dreamlike sometimes ethereal look to the cards is sure to be a hit and I hope enjoyed for many years to come. The deck should be currently available at local merchants by you and if not ask them to order it for you!

Fairy Tale Lenormand
Fairy Tale Lenormand

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT FAIRY TALE LENORMAND

I have had the pleasure, the last few days of working with this sweet treasure of a Lenormand, the Fairy Tale Lenormand by Lisa Hunt and Arwen Lynch Poe. The cards come in a little tin, which is pure brilliance on the part of U.S. Games Systems. I adore the tin, and it will last forever. Cardboard cannot compare. The deck is a standard 36-card Lenormand format with an extra lady and gentleman card bringing the total cards to 38. The card stock and texture is perfect. I would not expect anything less from this publisher.



The artwork is classic Lisa Hunt; devastatingly sweet and detailed. Somehow the Lenormand size does not detract from the art at all. You can see every exquisite detail. I could just live in these cards forever. I don't want to put them down.



I know the purpose of the deck is divination, but take out each card, one by one and read the story that accompanies it in the little guidebook and you are immediately transported back to childhood days and fairy tale fantasies. This guide is well written and compelling. You will read it because it's delightful, not because it's necessary. I love everything about this deck and I can't say enough wonderful things about it. End note: considering how collectible Lisa Hunt's Fairy Tale Tarot has become, I would suggest buying at least two copies of this deck.

—Jill Scott, author of Tarot by Number


To ask Lisa Hunt to illustrate a traditional Lenormand deck was really throwing down the gauntlet. Yet, once again, she rose to the challenge, with a wink and a nod, and created a deck that appears straightforward enough to satisfy the most demanding traditional cartomancer, but also contains the tiny embedded symbolism her loyal fans look forward to.



Lenormand is not tarot. It is meant to be read precisely based on the predominant symbolism and the placement of cards. Ms. Hunt’s drawings meet that criteria nicely. Those who choose to look closer, however, will find that the lady in Clover seems to have a blissful secret the rest of us cannot see. Then there’s Tree. Of course, we expect the face emerging from the trunk, but what about those roots reaching out like octopus arms to grasp the ground.



Arwen Lynch does a superb job of linking the appropriate Fairy Tale to each card and explaining how the archetypes in the tale lend themselves to the Lenormand symbolism. This is a lyrical and captivating addition to the Lenormand library. Contained in a beautifully designed metal box, it’s a special treat for card lovers and the people who love us.

Mystical Lenormand
Mystical Lenormand

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE MYSTICAL LENORMAND:

Mr. Trosch has created a mystical deck whose images truly resemble the icons of yesteryear, as each image is framed by a "window" that really makes one feel as if they are looking though a portal and glimpsing an altogether different reality, a place of mystical wonders and other worldliness. Even the backs of the cards take one away from the ordinary. Celestial angels encircle the earth and look down at the planet from the heavens, leaving one to feel as if they are going on a journey, far far away.

The deck is smaller of size, and I thought that would be a turn off, but quite to the contrary, it lends to the charm of the deck. When first opening the sturdy little box one is confronted with the LWB (little white book) which is really quite informative, with a brief history of Mlle. Lenormand's life, her deck and how Urban Trösch came to make this new take on the French classic. There are spread suggestions and the original meanings for the cards as well. What really impressed me, however, was the way the instructions treated the art of reading the deck (or any deck, for that matter) for beginners. They really stress the personal experience and encourage the neophyte to branch out and feel the cards and use first impressions and personal deep-seated meanings before ever looking at the black and white traditional meanings. Nothing cut in stone here! This is so refreshing to me. It does my heart good to see the art of reading decks go beyond the cookie cutter definitions and diving head long into how a card makes a person feel in their gut, where all good reading begins and ends, with the intuition and uncharted senses. Add to that the mentioning of how to treat a deck with awe and respect from the beginning, and you have a really good deck for the beginner that an experienced reader will also enjoy. This is how deck reading should be and this is how it is presented from the beginning, with honour and dignity and not a frivolous "game". I know Mlle. Lenormand would agree with me on this.

All in all, this deck is a very nice package, especially if one cannot get her mitts on any sort of Lenormand deck. This demure replica is a good start and far from a mere copy, it can hold its own reading after reading, or simply as a tool for meditation and contemplation. I find the images compelling and possessing their own personalities apart from the original Lenormand -- like a long-lost cousin to the original, or even a sibling -- they are very much alike, but different enough to be able to show unique traits original to each and the other.

I highly recommend this deck to anyone looking for a meaningful departure from the classic Waite-Smith fare. In a day and age when everyone and their brother are making and publishing their own decks, both oracles and tarots, it is a rare thing to find one or two that really stand out and stand up on their own merits, The Mystical Lenormand is one such deck. And especially in the case of the Lenormand decks, as they sort of fall somewhere between a tarot and an oracle style of deck. If one decides to add this deck to their collection of cards you have my word that you will not be disappointed.

Pixie’s Astounding Lenormand
WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT PIXIE'S LENORMAND
 
Comprised of illustrations from the Rider-Waite tarot and “The Green Sheaf”, this 36-card petit Lenormand pays homage to Pamela Colman Smith. It is fundamentally a series of collages pieced together from Smith’s artwork. The pieces of the Rider-Waite cards add layers of meaning to the simple Lenormand images.

On the surface it’s a series of images which trigger intuitive information in the reader. For those who are familiar with Smith’s work, each card is a little mystery to be solved and built upon.

Fun, thought-provoking, and already a sensation on the web, this small deck in its metal container is a treat for beginners and seasoned diviners alike.
—Anna, Tarotwise.com

My go to tarot deck has always been The Rider Waite Smith. When I first got into Lenormand ,I paid a high price on Ebay for Edmund Zebrowskis self published Pixies Astounding Lenormand. I didn't use it much because it cost so much. When I heard US Games published it, I had to have it. The artwork is taken from The Rider tarot and The Golden Vanity. The LWB is great. It's actually a bit more than most would call a LWB. It explains each card, it's energy and where in her artwork it was taken from. It's great for beginners and experienced Readers. Now I can put the self published one up just to look at. Also it comes in a little metal box, which I love.
—Dawn Donivan, Amazon customer

Pamela Coleman Smith affectionately known as Pixie is without doubt the most influential illustrator of tarot decks. Ever. Her idiosyncratic illustrations of the Minor Arcana in the Rider-Waite-Smith deck (as it is now commonly referred to) single-handedly revolutionized the tarot, and ushered in the age of the fully illustrated 78 card deck. During her lifetime Pixie did not illustrate any other divination decks beside the Rider-Waite-Smith; Lenormand was not, at the time, particularly popular nor was it (or is it) considered to be the repository of esoteric, occult, and magical knowledge that tarot is. Currently interest in Lenormand and other non-tarot divination decks is on the rise. Edmond Zebrowski has taken elements from the Rider-Waite-smith deck as well as other illustrations by Pamela Coleman Smith and fused them into a charming Lenormand deck. 
 
Pixie's Astounding Lenormand is a standard 36 card deck with no extras. It comes packaged in a small metal tin, with liftoff lid, painted with scenes from the deck, roses, and publisher information. The deck is accompanied by a small 129-page guidebook. Being a product of U.S. Games Systems the quality of the cards is virtually guaranteed. The cards are quite small, 57 x 89mm, as befitting traditional Lenormand decks, and very easy to handle. The card stock is excellent – firm and quite flexible, but not flimsy. The finish is low sheen and smooth with out being slippery – the cards do not stick together or clump, but have an easy flow when shuffled. 
The print quality is excellent – the images are clearly defined with crisp, clean lines and true colours. The palette is a direct reflection of PCS’s original colour scheme which is restrained and elegant – pale blues and greens, powdery teal, buttery yellow, sandy tan, burgundy, blood red, and faded slate predominate. 
 
The illustrations themselves are faithful reproductions of Pamela Coleman Smith’s lovely, old-fashioned images... Edmond Zebrowski has taken many of the minor players and mis-en-scene from the RWS deck and re-focused our attention on them by placing them as central images. Not only has the artist successfully pastiched or collaged elements of Pixie’s illustrations but the tiniest details such as her chiaroscuro techniques have been retained. The print on the back of the deck, a single rose on a blue background, is not reversible. 
 
The guidebook although small is full of information that is helpful to both the novice and experienced user. The Introduction explains the origins of the deck, as well as a few tips on how to read the cards. Each card is given 8 points of information: 
Card Energy – whether the card is positive, negative, or neutral.
Keywords – fundamental descriptors of the card’s characteristics.
Full Meaning – a detailed explanation of the card’s divinatory meaning.
Love – an interpretation for a 'Love 'reading.
Career – and interpretation for a 'Career 'reading.
Characteristics/Qualities – how a card may describe a person in a reading.
Timing – when something will occur.
Image Origins – explains the sources of the images, how they were adapted from PCS's original works. 
 
If you are a fan of Pamela Coleman Smith or the Rider Waite Smith deck then this Lenormand is a must have. It is a beautiful deck for both novice and adept alike… And would be especially helpful for a novice Lenormand user who has experience reading the RWS tarot. This is a fabulous homage to Pamela Coleman Smith and an absolutely delightful Lenormand deck.

Under the Roses Lenormand
Under the Roses Lenormand

What customers are saying about Under the Roses Lenormand

Under the Roses Lenormand, created by Kendra Hurteau and Katrina Hill, is one of the most fascinating and captivating Lenormand decks I’ve found. As I search through the deck I am pulled into another world with a touch of Charles Dickens whimsy, mixed with gothic mystery and Victorian Romance. There’s a subtle hint of something epic happening beyond the faces of the pictures.

The distinct illustration style makes the deck feel alive and personal; these aren’t static images on cardstock! The portraits are illuminated and vibrating. You feel as if you could step into the images… they characters almost turn and speak. At times I think I can hear the deck whispering, “Step into our world and discover your story.”

Under the Roses Lenormand is mostly gentle, always direct, with a slight shadow that hangs over every card. The dark side of the deck seems to cast an air of truth. My sense tingle with the invisible glances of looming figures that lurk in London. If you are looking for a Lenormand deck with presence… Under the Roses is for you.

—Shaheen Miro Insights


The phrase, “under the roses” comes from a Roman phrase, “sub rosa”.  The rose was symbolic of confidentiality and “under the roses” indicates secrets.  That is exactly what you will discover when you start to use The Under the Roses Lenormand.  Secrets will come to light. The color scheme consists of antiqued sepia tones with a color palette of yellow, green, white, orange, read, pink, brown, and gray.  The colors give the deck a very old world look to them and they are quite charming.  The background of each card resembles tea-dyed paper. The Under the Roses Lenormand is a delightful deck.

—Nefer Khepri, Magickal-Musings Blog


This is a lovely deck that largely follows the Petit Lenormand tradition.  The artwork is beautiful: simple, yet attractive.  The style is an interestingly modern take on old-fashioned, with dark sepia tones and Victorian-looking clothing and objects.  There are plenty of roses in the cards as a wink to the title, which itself is a wink to the Roman phrase sub rosa, meaning “confidential”.  

The biggest change that has been made from traditional decks is that there are two Lady and two Gentleman cards, one each of European and African descent.  However, both versions retain the original numbering.  So, you can choose which card to include based on the ethnicity of your client or on personal preference.  You can also use either two ladies or two gentlemen if reading for a same-sex couple.  Or else leave all four cards in if there are a lot of people involved in the situation.  
 The changes don’t end there, though.  Some of the cards have also been renamed. The Tower becomes the Clock Tower while, the Heart becomes the Locket, a lovely way of treating this image.  So, too, the Coffin becomes the Grave—in some ways a clearer, more striking depiction that fits better with modern sensibilities. The Book becomes the Journal, which I think is my favorite change.  It gives that sense of things being hidden, but also of study, really nicely.  Finally, the Scythe becomes the Sickle: easier to handle, I guess.  

Nevertheless, the cards are fairly clear and easy to read: you can tell what each card is at a glance.  There is a lot of charm and a touch of cute to these cards, with their slightly dark tones, yet sweet images.  Altogether, this is a very pretty, accessible deck, which will appeal to established Lenormand readers as well as beginners.

—Inner Whispers Blog


Under the Roses Lenarmond is one of the most beautiful Lenormands out there. I love the manga-like artwork of the cards, the sweet vintage-like colors, its freshness and its sweetness! It’s a perfect deck to enchant any reader around. It’s a good deck for beginners, for pros, for those who collect decks, for traditionalist, for “unconventionalists”… In short, it’s a gorgeous deck for anyone who wishes to read the Lenormand.

You will find romantic cards, like the Locket or the Bouquet; sexy cards, like the Whip; shiny cards like the Sun and the Moon; and sweet cards like the Child. You will fall in love with each of the cards for one reason or another!

This is a must-have deck, which will enchant you in a way no other deck will! It is modern and yet vintage, it is dreamy and yet realist, it is soft and yet hard, it is sexy and yet victorian, it is traditional and yet unconventional.
