To take part in the free Tarot reading draw tonight, simply ask your question for the cards in the comments below. I will do ten mini Tarot readings in the comments tonight. I will answer the questions I feel most drawn to.

Cartomancy with the Lenormand and the Tarot by Patrick Dunn

Tarot Book Tip – Cartomancy with Lenormand and the Tarot by Patrick Dunn

The book I want to recommend is one that all Tarotists should add to their library, whether they are looking to learn the Lenormand at all/in-depth or not. The book is ‘Cartomancy with the Lenormand and the Tarot’ by Patrick Dunn.

Patrick Dunn explains the sociocultural background for both systems which makes it easy to understand how they differ (and how they are similar). He also helps you understand how the Anima Mundi uses categories of symbols to communicate with us. He breaks this language of symbols down in such a clear and logical way that you may well come away feeling that you could read with any system of divination… and you wouldn’t be far wrong!

Having always been a firm believer in formulating the right questions for the cards, one of my favourite quotes from the book is:

The questions most suited to divination are those that uncover meaning rather than data. ~ Patrick Dunn Click To Tweet

Dunn’s non-traditional, intuitive take on the Lenormand also suits my psyche and the way I always felt like approaching the ‘Lennies.’ I suppose this will read as a caveat to those among you who feel there is only one ‘correct’ way of reading the Lenormand cards… 😛

There are also a couple of chapters dedicated on how to combine the two systems in readings. Essentially though, this book is suited to anyone with a keen interest in Cartomancy, Tarot and/or the Lenormand. You don’t have to want to combine the two systems to get loads of great information from this book.

As a bonus for those of us who are inclined toward the Craft, there is a chapter on how to use the cards for magic. Whether a novice or an experienced reader, you will enjoy Patrick Dunn’s book if you are the type of person who likes to think more deeply about how and why things work.

The days of fake gurus are numbered

Finally, before I sign off, I would like to recommend this article about the psychology behind why fake gurus can attract a great following and vast riches. This was a share by a friend on Facebook that I feel is a must read now that there is such a war on people’s souls and wallets going on.

Blessed Be!

Lisa

  1. Hi Lisa. These last 5 months were spent caring for my sister who had cancer and crossed over November 25th 2017. I was so busy and wrapped up in grief while we traveled her last journey, somehow I lost my connection to the things I love to do, such as Reiki, card readings and learning new things. I am wondering when I will find my way back to these things that I love.
    Many Blessings,
    Thank you

  3. Hi Lisa!
    I new person has arrived in my life. We see each other a couple of days every two weeks at school, and for every meeting a feeling of community between us is growing stronger. We often end up talking, and I find myself telling things about myself that I’ve never told anyone before. I am more known as a person with a integrity. This personality change makes me confused. I thought I knew myself better after 46 years in this body. There is something very strong between us and I have a feeling I am not the only one that feels this way. Can the feeling be mutual? What is our new relation about for now and for my future? Love and light!

      Hi Monica, I see friendship and yes, there is chemistry – quite a lot! What I don’t see here is falling in love or enough emotional compatibility for this to be ‘The One.’ The cards I pulled were 6 of Swords, 5 of Wands and Ace of Wands. Enjoy this while it lasts. Many blessings, Lisa

  4. Hello Lisa. I am very grateful for this kind opportunity. If you feel drawn, should I be working on my main creative endevours or should I put it aside for now in favor of a more financially stable time.?

      Hi Sandra, I pulled the Queen of Swords in answer to this question. It is about seeking balance rather than either or with this Queen. Your creativity is part of who you are but yes, the Queen of Swords is keen to find a viable solution for creating financial stability. Believe you have what it takes to achieve this balance… because you do! Love and Blessings, Lisa

  5. I’ve had one crushing disappointment after another for longer than I care to remember, yet I know good things still happen & I do have family that I love and am thankful for. I’m not able to read for myself right now, and I’d like to know what I can do to stop constantly being on the verge of tears? They never go away. I’m depressed, of course, which I’m heartily sick of, but it seems like there’s something more beyond the obvious, and I’m too old for this crap. I want to live while I can still appreciate it! Thanks so much. Blessings!

      Hi Teri, so sorry to hear about the rough times you’ve been through and how you are constantly on the verge of tears. I was just going to say, please get help but then I was nudged to pull a card… and I got the 5 of Pentacles which reminds us to reach out and ask for help, reinforcing my intitial inner guidance on this for you. You deserve to feel better and you will but you mustn’t be afraid to reach out for help so that the right medical professionals have a chance to help you begin turning that corner. Love and Blessings, Lisa

  6. Hi Lisa, my question is Will there be positive changes for me in the next 3 months? Any guidance you can provide on which areas would be fab. Happy Christmas x

      Hi Val, The Hermit is calling you to find out worthwhile topics to not just study but contemplate deeply. Seek out the subjects that resonate with your experience as well as your curiousity. You will learn much and you will be able to teach much once you have achieved greater levels of clarity thanks to this. Love and Blessings, Lisa

  7. Hello Lisa thanks for this opportunity for sharing your gift. My question is ‘what is the next step for my growth?’
    Many thanks

  8. Hi Lisa, I’m not sure what area my question is, I’ve been alone for 7 years. Well been texting and talking to a man on line and helping him with some work . We have some pretty not intimate , yet well really nice talks. I’m sure it works two ways. Will I meet him ? Will I always be alone? I’m pretty independent and can be rwally mean with my words. I’m working in that too. Is there any hope for me? Please ? I’m at a lose . I do care?

  9. Hi Lisa,

    Namaste!

    Thank you so much for doing this 🙂

    My question has to do with my academic goals. I have applied to three international academic conferences and I want to know whether I would get selected for them and receive the required scholarship to attend the same since it is very difficult to fund these exorbitantly priced things by oneself.

    Love and Light

    1. Hi Lisa, you’ve guided my life in so many ways. Thank you As a wife, new Mom, psychotherapist, PhD student, and business owner, I am stressed, though So very grateful. I want to move forward in my work. This world needs it So much right now. And yet, I feel guilt and stress. Is 2018 the right time to move forward with my career or is this a time period where I am supposed to be mostly focused on motherhood? Can I do both?

        Hi Nicole, the 6 of Wands and 5 of Cups tell me that 2018 is indeed a good year to move ahead with your career but it may not be easy emotionally. The focus (since the quint is 11 Justice) should be on finding the optimal work-life balance to avoid emotional disappointment and feelings of guilt for not being at hone with your child as much as you feel you ought to. Love and Blessings, Lisa

      Hi Shivangi, the 8 of Swords suggests that there are other options for your way forward that you haven’t begun to explore yet. Think outside the box. Don’t allow yourself to limit your options by only going down the best known conventional routes. Love and Blessings, Lisa

  10. Hello Lisa and happy holidays! My question is love related. My bf and I have undergone a tough time since Sept and the reveal of some things that was kept from me. We are working on reestablishing trust but I’m still having doubts. My question is, is this relationship worth me continuing to fight for/work on? I don’t want to enter a new year wasting my time in a futureless relationship lol thanks for blessing us with your gifts and talent! Enjoy your holiday 🙂

  11. Hello Lisa, I have been experiencing darkness for a long time, something energetically drains me, it feels like impending doom.
    I would like clarity in how I can come back to my centre and joy, to find stability.
    What are the steps to take that are in alignment with my new life cycle?

    Thank you kindly for this opportunity,
    Take care.
    Xx

    Shae.

      Hi Karen, The Knight of Swords shows me you being on a quest for truth over the next couple of years. You will find lots of interesting topics to study… things that feel true and tickle your fancy… but I don’t see anything that sticks long enough for it to become the foundation of a spiritual based career. I also get a sense of not wanting to go at it alone (The Lovers)… a need to partner up. Perhaps finding a way of releasing that need will speed up your journey to that one thing that sees you so passionate that you can wait no longer to get to work. When you do find it, you will run out of excuses completely. Love and Blessings, Lisa

  12. What i should do or change in myself in order to be able to meet à man corresponding to my spiritual needs for a further development of my soul in a happy love relatioship?
    Thank you for your help and advice !

      Hi Graziella, I got two strong Leo energy cards for you 6 of Wands + Strength. This tells us that focusing on building your confidence levels is what will really give the biggest pay out. With Leo energy you do this by doing more of the things you love every day… by being generous with yourself, your time and your presence… By connecting with your own sensual/sexual fire so that you can light up your aura with your charisma from within. Tiger’s Eye crystal and the colour gold will help strengthen this energy. Positivity and playfulness are personality traits to cultivate. Love and Blessings, Lisa

      1. Thank you so much for this empowering reading dear Lisa. Your intuition is right – I need to regain confidence in myself and feel again the joy being genuine and open to the world doing what pleases me (I am recovering very slowly from being left by my boyfriend in January this year for another woman – less beautiful than me, elder, with less education, in prepension etc. I always felt supérior to this man and he found à woman much suitable to his interests (photos and motos) social circle and way of life. I understand he is feeling better with her and she could be a nice person as well. I overcomed the anger, the offense and the hate in my heart, I understand that this separation could be for my highest good as well, but how it hurts! I was thinking that the purpose of this pain is to diminush my ego. In fact I should be true to myself and seek a man who could correspond to my nature – artistic, sensual, spiritual, who could help me to evolve together with him. This pain turned me again to the spirituality and was a wake up call to make me think about my life and what I should change in order to be happy and satisfied, learning from this life lesson.
        Thank you again for the hope you gave me and for your generosity.

  13. Hi Lisa, I am wondering what it is that’s blocking me from moving forward to help others in my quest of making this a better world? Nothing has been happening, it’s like I am being blocked at every turn.

  14. Hello Lisa,

    Thank you so much for your generosity. I want to be so cliche as to ask about my love life but that is what is really yearning to be addressed right now. How can I cultivate the relationship Iong for? Or is my bout of soltitude meant to be used for good reason? I hope all is well with you; I always eagerly await your postings. Have a great weekend!

  15. Hi been a tough year this year just wondering if happiness luck and well being are finally going to enter my
    Life thank you love and light✨

  16. Hi Lisa,
    Following a difficult, heartbreaking, but very awakening and life defining year I’m wondering what’s in the cards for me next year in general in my life??

    Thanks again for your continuing guidance.

    Love and light,

    Paulo

      Hi Lisa – With the 10 of Swords, it looks like it could be negative self-talk. Past negative experiences could still be weighing you down, making your expectations for the future less optimistic than they ought to be. I think focusing on the fact that things can only get better now is the way forward with this card. Learning how to play and have fun again is important with the Sun in Gemini corresponding with the 10 of Swords. That is how you start seeing the light on the Eastern horizon after all the horrible nasty stuff you’ve had to endure. Yes, it was bad… but it *is* in the past now. Draw a line under it and decide to have fun dating. Love and Blessings, Lisa

  17. Hello Lisa,

    I would humbly appreciate a mini reading whether my financial slumps will be over soon as it is kind of resurrecting from rock bottom. Also I don’t know if I should remain in my own country for now or move to Singapore (neighbor country).

    Thank you so much. xoxo

      Hello Nikalaos, Big changes are coming up for you with The Tower and The Empress – for the better since the quint is The Sun… but rock bottom may not look the way you think it looks. Prepare for the unexpected (as always with The Tower)… and for your creativity to truly start blossoming once you have turned that corner. Hang in there! Love and Blessings, Lisa

      Hi Layla, The Hanged Man + 7 of Pentacles shows us a relationship situation that requires a lot of patience and a new perspective before things can start moving forward. It is of course up to you if you feel this relationship is worth all that waiting around… Love and Blessings, Lisa

  18. Hi there, thank you so much for this generous offer to your readers. I am desperate, I have for some months been feeling the most incredible force to make massive changes in my life, to the point of an almost continuous prayer of God help me, God show me, I know I am done I am done I am done. But I don’t know what it is. Many blessings and comfort and nurture in this season of light.
