Madame Marie Anne Lenormand (1772-1843) lived during the time of the French revolution and it is in this time of upheaval that the Lenormand cards were born.  Albeit the symbols on today’s Lenormand cards were created without her input; she used regular playing cards, some of them with handwritten remarks, astrological and other symbols on them. That is why today’s Lenormand decks always include a depiction of the value of the playing cards on them.  Once you have mastered learning the symbols you can easily use any card playing deck for your readings as well.

Card #1 – The Rider (9 of Hearts)

Key words:
Message, young man, means of transport, sports, agility but also the horse itself

General description:
This is the card of movement and communication. Something is happening or about to happen, you receive news, you are communicating. Note that the interpretation of the card also depends on which direction the rider faces. (Which card is he moving away from, which card/s is he approaching?) For example if the rider is moving away from the self-card (#28 for males and #29 for females) communication is blocked, news or letters are delayed or got lost, depending on the other surrounding cards.

If you picked the Rider in for your Daily Tendency Card:
You have charisma, others like you, you are a good entertainer and you will have a marvelous time. It will be a busy and sociable day.

Love:
An affair is coming around. It might turn into something more serious, but usually it doesn’t. You will encounter a person that will turn your head.

Work:
Your effort will be crowned with success. You will get an acceptance for a new occupation. If you apply for a job you can expect a positive answer.

Health:
The Rider / The Cavalier is connected with movement and symbolizes a warning. Take care of your joints, ligaments, and sinews- take a rest. Too much sport could end up in an injury

Time Factor:
On short notice, within a few days
