Last week while introducing you to the four Kings in the Lenormand Revolution, we promised a look at the Queens. Like the Kings, the Queens are tucked in a rococo style frame and sitting behind their corresponding number. Each bring their own unique qualities to a reading and can point to a person of interest. And while it is not necessary to incorporate the royal cards into your reading, we do recommend you take note of the Kings, Queens and Jacks, especially when inquiring about a person.
These cards can offer additional details regarding the persona of an individual you might be asking about. For example, within card 7, Le Serpent/Snake lives the Queen of Clubs. This Queen usually represents someone you know. Her reputation as being “the other woman” can at times bode true, however this Queen is also known for other characteristics such as her level of maturity, a sharp intelligence and keen perception.
In Card 9, Le Bouquet/Bouquet we find the Queen of Spades—a somewhat matriarchal and kindhearted woman who often takes the form of a favorite Aunt or pleasant friend of the family. Like receiving an unexpected bouquet of flowers, this Queen can also represent a pleasant surprise.
The Queen of Hearts is found in card 17, the Stork. This Queen has been known to inspire change, be it uplifting or not, and often takes the guise of a maternal figure, ex-partner or sister.
The Queen of Diamonds lives in card 22, Chemin/Paths. This Queen has been described as a woman who might cross your path though she is also known to be uncertain and a bit non-committal. Of course this depends greatly on the surrounding cards.
Next week we will look at the Jacks. Until then, we encourage you to begin building your vocabulary with a Lenormand Log. Take note of your findings and refer to them for future reference.
