Learn Lenormand with Laura and Madison

What are Lenormand cards? Where did they come from, how do they work, and what can they do for you?

Instructors: Laura Pensar & Madison Joy

Join Laura and Madison in the Moth & Candle studio for an evening dedicated to this charming and simple (but powerful) card system! The divination card deck developed in the 1800’s known as Lenormand is Tarot’s simpler and more practical cousin. Lenormand cards are beginner-friendly and a great way to connect with your intuition.

Laura and Madison have developed this three-part Lenormand course to take you from complete beginner all the way to reading the full 36-card Grand Tableau! Take one, two, or all three classes…

  • Lenormand I, Introduction to the Cards: (beginner) learn the basics of the Lenormand system, create your own study deck, and be doing simple 3-card readings for yourself by the end of class.
  • Lenormand II, Reading for Others: (beginner/intermediate) learn multiple ways to read a 9-card spread and practice giving “cold readings” with your fellow students.
  • Lenormand III, The Grand Tableau: (intermediate/advanced) the ultimate Lenormand spread uses all 36 cards and can be read in a multitude of ways, learn to incorporate this powerful reading technique into your practice. We recommend that you have previous experience with Lenormand or have taken the Lenormand II course prior to signing up for The Grand Tableau class.

Upcoming Workshops:

  • Lenormand I, Introduction to the Cards
