Hello Everyone, Just wanted to share a lenormand spread popular in France and Germany, its a 3 card spread.
You start by shuffling, to select the first card there are 2 method, the 1st is by simply taking the 1st card on top of the deck, the 2nd way is by asking the client to cut the deck is 2 piles with the left hand which is la main du coeur (the hand of the heart) and you pick the 1st card revealed by the cut, here you have your 1st card for the spread. Now for your second card you are going to count from the top of the deck the number written on your first card, for instance your 1st card is the child no. 13, You count till the 13th card of the deck heres your 2nd card.
So the second card is found by using the number of the first card, and the third card is found by adding the first two together and reducing the numbers. NOTE THAT: If you are seeking for the future, you cut the deck from left to right, for the past its left to right. For your 3rd card, lets pretend that card 1 is the Child 13 and card number 2 is Cross 36, to get your final 3rd card you add13+36+ 49= 4+9=13 know you have 2 choice take the Child card 13 as the 3rd card or reduce the numbers again13=1+3=4, 4, being the house. Your spread is The child, the cross and the house/child.
In summary: The second card is found by using the number of the first card, and the third card is found by adding the first two together and reducing the numbers.
