One Step at a Time

Card combos are very important when working with Lenormand. One card alone gives a vague idea of what’s going on, but when bringing in the added information of a descriptor card the idea becomes clearer.

While Tarot is a different system, finding connections between the cards is a necessary process for the best possible reading. The Tarot offers much more in the way of one card bringing depth to the reading but add a descriptor card, and you get volumes.

Using the different systems, let’s take a look at the week ahead - March 3-9. I’m using the Tarot to discover the theme and the Lenormand to show an issue or event for the week.

rider-waite, gilded reverie lenormand
Theme - Knight of Swords/The Emperor (reversed)

The Knight gives us the main focus while the reversed Emperor provides us with added descriptions.

The Knight of Swords charges toward his destination. Nothing can slow him down. He has his mind set and he's going after it. But wait. The Emperor reversed is overbearing and allows for no slack. He enforces the rules and demands you to not step out of line.

You feel ready to charge, but a need to follow the rules holds you back.

Issue or Event - Sun/Clouds 

Weather would be the obvious issue here, but let's go to another level. 

The Sun provides the main focus of the issue, while the Clouds describe this focus.

The Sun shows success and big luck. The Clouds, difficulties and confusion, dampen the success and makes it difficult to reach full potential.

You have difficulties reaching complete success.


You have success this week, but maybe not as much progress as you hoped for. You may feel you could have achieved more, but give yourself a break; there are energies and necessary tasks holding you back. Take it one step at a time. It's better to do it right, rather than getting it done fast. Take the time to reach your success instead of rushing toward completion. 

Hope you all of a wonderful week. Enjoy the journey toward your destination.

What a great way to use both systems together. Sometimes I draw a second card as clarifier. to add an extra layer to the first card.

Ellen, Thanks. Yes and these energies are in full swing. One step forward, two steps back. Of course, Mars being in retrograde probably isn't helping much. :)

Don't confess to fully understanding all of this, but it's fascinating. And especially about the weather. We're having our second winter because we spent 2 months in Bucerias. The experience of coming back to Canada has caused me to pay attention to how climate interferes with my creativity. Very interesting post, Cher.

Joylene, Glad you enjoyed the post. Hope you enjoyed your trip. It's funny on the weather, cause it was cloudy and rainy most of this week, but tomorrow SUN is expected. :)
