This 39 card deck by Caitlín Matthews and Virginia Lee includes two sets of Man and Woman cards, along with an extra Diviner card. The two sets of Man and Woman allows the reading to be tailored to the circumstances of the Querent. One pair is portrayed with light skin and the other pair is portrayed with dark skin. The unused cards are removed from the deck before shuffling. The Diviner (37) is not required for Lenormand reading. I include it with my throws as it makes an excellent “Stop Card” when first on the table and a “pay attention to what follows” card when appearing elsewhere.
Today’s cards: Diviner + Unknown + Unknown.
The traditional lenormand system does not allow for a Stop Card to be used, as no one card is more doomish than the others, and all are expected to carry information for the querent. However, the Enchanted Lenormand Oracle comes with an extra card to be used at the reader’s discretion, the Diviner. I do include the extra card when reading normally and even in Grand Tableaus where it marks the card that follows (and sets on top of it) as an important card to track. But when the Diviner is the first card on the table, it functions as a Stop Card, a signal to the reader (me) that this divination is ill-advised and not to proceed further. So I have no words to say to you, dear reader, other than continue as you have planned to the best of your abilities.
