Trimming Witchy Tarot into Lenormand

September 18, 2012

So I had this Witchy Tarot deck that I liked the artwork, but I couldn’t really read the deck in a tarot format.  When I started getting interested in Lenormand, they came to mind as the perfect deck to use.  So I spent a couple of days of pouring through Lenormand meanings and the tarot deck to create my very own witchy-themed Lenormand deck.  For the most part I’m very happy with my match ups though there are a few that are imperfect but can apply well enough to work.

I then trimmed the deck (believe me that was no easy task…getting past the “thou shall not take cutting intruments to thy tarot decks” was rather agonizing   I used a paper cutter and a corner trimmer but still ended up with some sore muscles.  Can’t imagine what it would have been like if I did all that cutting with scissors!  Not pretty I’m sure!).  As requested, below is the picture of my Lenormand deck after I finished trimming it.  They are roughly all the same size.  I used a gold sharpie to add the numbers and card assignments (which honestly I’m not sure the point of these but since all Lenormand decks seem to have them, I’m sure there is some use for them that I am not aware).

in random order, My Witchy Lenormad

  1. Broom Rider
  2. Clover Wheel
  3. Raft
  4. House
  5. Tree
  6. Storm Clouds
  7. Snakes
  8. Grim Reaper (coffin)
  9. Fruit Basket (bouquet)
  10. Witch’s Tools (scythe)
  11. Line in the sand (whip/rod)
  12. Birds (owls)
  13. Child
  14. Fox
  15. Bear Strength
  16. Stars
  17. Climb to the “Stork” (stork)
  18. Pet (dog)
  19. Tower Maiden
  20. Garden Party
  21. Mountain
  22. Crossroad
  23. Mice
  24. Loving Couple (heart)
  25. Wreaths (ring)
  26. Book
  27. Letter
  28. Man
  29. Woman
  30. Grandma Lily (lilies)
  31. Fireplace (sun)
  32. Moon
  33. Karma Key
  34. Fish
  35. Anchor Bridge
  36. Trinity (cross)

There are 4 non-numbered cards:  Ancestors, Agathos Daimon, Spirit Guides and Power Animals.  When I draw one of these, I will know that a more in-depth reading is needed.

I haven’t decided what to do with the remaining deck.  If someone is missing some Witchy Tarot cards from their deck, let me know!

    That is freakin’ AWESOME! I’m having all sorts of _bad thoughts_ about unused decks in my collection now 😉 Think the card inserts date back to the original playing card divination associations, though why only 36 of the 52 were chosen when deisigning the Lenormand, I don’t know.

      Beat you to it…I went through a lot of my unused decks…none worked as thoroughly as this deck did. 🙂
