With so many new Lenormand Learners here on the site...I wanted to share some of my learning process with you. Welcome! I am so excited to have you here.
For years, I have journaled about card combinations and the application of each Lenormand card to different contexts. I have decided to share some of my journal with you guys. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. Do you think I should create this type of page for all of the Lenormand cards?
1. The Rider
The Rider Card Meaning
In this card you generally see a handsome man riding rapidly, carrying news. He is a cordial rider, typically bringing news in a kind and courteous manner (unless cards around him are negative). This is a neutral card tilting slightly positive. It is an exciting card that shows news and information is on the way, and quickly!
The Rider Card Combinations
Did the rider show up in your reading? Check out the card combinations below. Please note, there are almost infinite meanings for Lenormand combinations. These combinations below are interpretations I have discovered over the years. The context can change EVERYTHING so use these meanings as prompts for your intuition to sing with the context of your question. I can't stress enough how important context is!
