The Isabella Oracle.

The Isabella Oracle is self-published by Lynn Boyle of Aquarius Wellbeing. Lynn has been self-publishing oracle and Lenormand decks for a number of years now. Lynn now has 62 decks to her credit, 59 of which are still in print that she sells through her Etsy shop. She’s been a very busy bee!

Isabella Oracle 1

The Isabella Oracle consists of 54 cards packaged in an organza drawstring bag that is accompanied by a 3-page print out of card meanings in A4 size. The cards are typical Lenormand size and are printed with a semi-gloss coating with black borders. The card number and title appear within the black border centered at the base of the image. The style of the artwork is photographic using images within the public domain (i.e., copyright-free).

The first 36 cards may be separated from the remainder of the deck and used as a stand-alone Lenormand deck. Card titles of the first 36 cards derive from traditional Lenormand keyword meanings. For example, Card 1 traditionally known as Rider, is interpreted as a messenger; therefore, Card 1 of The Isabella Oracle is aptly entitled Messenger. The second card that is traditionally Clover and seen as representing luck is entitled, Luck. The images themselves consist of traditional Lenormand card imagery. The remainder of the first 36 cards are titled as follows:

3: Travel, 4: Home, 5: Health, 6: Confusion, 7: Complication, 8: Ending, 9: Appreciation, 10. Severing, 11: Strife, 12: Conversation, 13: Child, 14: Tricky, 15: Strength, 16: Wish, 17: Change, 18: Friend, 19: Authority, 20: Society, 21: Barrier, 22: Decision, 23: Theft, 24: Love, 25: Commitment, 26: Secret, 27: Paperwork, 28: Man, 29: Woman, 30: Harmony, 31: Success, 32: Intuition, 33: Solution, 34: Abundance, 35: Security, and 36: Burden.

This portion of the deck can easily stand alone as a Lenormand deck. Lynn Boyle chose traditional Lenormand images for these cards with the exception of 8: Endings. Here, she has a skull with the traditional depiction being that of a coffin. Card number 10: Severing is depicted with a knife while traditionally a scythe is found on this card. Authority, the 19th card, which traditionally is called Tower and depicts a tower, in The Isabella Oracle here we have the figure of a king carved from wood.

Beginners would do well with this deck in particular because they are basically receiving 2 decks in 1, and having a keyword on each of the first 36 cards will also help them to learn the Lenormand system as long as they maintain a separate list of the traditional card titles. Card titles for all 54 cards nicely convey the core meaning of each card.

The remaining 18 cards transform The Isabella Oracle in a 54-card oracle deck. Card images are reminiscent of Lynn Boyle’s Aquarius Gypsy Lenormand. The card images and titles of the additional cards work well with the first 36 cards and nicely flesh out readings when all 54 cards are used. Card titles and images are as follows:

37: Agreement (handshake), 38: Breakthrough (the Hindu god Ganesha), 39: Cleanse (tree frog), 40: Contemplation (a man meditating), 41: Cupid (winged cupid statue & hearts), 42: Cycles (ferris wheel), 43: Disappointment (heart pierced by 3 swords), 44: Doorway (door), 45: Forgiveness (dove of peace), 46: Hand of Fate (hand of Fatima), 47: Illusion (broken mirror), 48: Malfunction (broken bottle), 49: Rebirth (phoenix), 50: Timing (clock), 51: Toxic (bottle of poison), 52: Transformation (butterfly), 53: Observation (owl), and 54: Yin Yang.

The cards shuffle easily and withstand rifle shuffling well. I have used The Isabella Oracle with equal accuracy as both a Lenormand and oracle deck. The black borders make the images “pop” and the deck looks lovely against a dark reading cloth.

Isabella oracle 2

The Isabella Oracle is available directly from the deck creator at: https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/AquariusWellbeing where she has numerous 5-star reviews, offers 59 decks for sale, and has been on Etsy since 2013. I can tell you based upon my own experience she ships quickly & despite the package being shipped from Australia to Texas, it arrives quicker than what one would expect.

Wishing you many blessings!

Full DisclosureI received a copy of this deck from the publisher to consider it for review. I only review those decks and books that I find personally useful and feel would be of interest to my followers.

The Dreaming Way Lenormand

Fantastical. Picturesque. Fanciful. Imaginative.

These terms encompass the loveliness that is The Dreaming Way Lenormand. The artist behind this deck is Kwon Shina who also created The Dreaming Way Tarot (US Games, Inc., 2012). The booklet is written by Lynn Araujo. The Dreaming Way Lenormand is published by US Games, Inc. and retails for $15.95. It is packaged in a compact fitted box that measures 2.875 x 3.875.” The cards and booklet are typical playing card size, 2.5 x 3.5″ and fit nicely in the hand. They shuffle easily even for those of us with small hands.

The Dreaming Way Lenormand consists of the traditional 36 cards that comprise a Lenormand deck. Card titles are traditional with the sole exception of Card # 22, typically entitled Paths, Roads, or Crossroads. Card # 22 represents being faced with a choice; therefore, for The Dreaming Way Lenormand this card is entitled, “Choices.” The card titles are presented in a small cream-colored block at the base of each image and are non-intrusive. The card numbers are presented in a small non-intrusive circle at the top center of each image. Playing card associations are not included on the cards, nor are they mentioned in the accompanying booklet.

Kwon Shina’s watercolor paintings are conveyed with soft pastel backgrounds and vibrant foregrounds that help the center image of each card to look as though it is popping off the card. The watercolor medium lends itself nicely to the dreamlike quality of the imagery.

The booklet by Lynn Araujo contains 91 pages and is the same size as the cards. The booklet and cards are housed together in the box with the booklet resting on top of the cards. The introduction briefly summarizes several deck reviews of Kwon Shina’s previous deck for US Games, Inc., The Dreaming Way Tarot and concludes with Lynn Araujo’s commentary about Kwon Shina’s artwork. The bulk of the booklet focuses on the card meanings. Card interpretations begin with a quote from various historical luminaries of their respective fields. The imagery is described and then the traditional interpretation of each card is presented. Card interpretations conclude with several keywords. The booklet concludes with a very brief summary of Lenormand reading syntax. Readers new to Lenormand will need to purchase another book in order to fully comprehend how to correctly read with the Lenormand system. One sample reading of five cards is provided. There is also a 10-card spiral spread that concludes the booklet, but it is not followed by a sample reading.

The Dreaming Way Lenormand comes housed in a sturdy small box that is well suited for travel and will fit easily in a purse. I enjoy decks that travel well due to their compact and study packaging. Readers will enjoy The Dreaming Way Lenormand due to the soft dreamlike quality of the artwork that is presented with a great deal of charm. This is a lovely deck for beginners due to the charming simplicity of the images, but a beginner will also need to purchase a more in depth Lenormand book. I highly recommend Lenormand Thirty Six Cards: An Introduction to the Petit Lenormand, by Andy Boroveshengra. For those wishing to go truly in depth with their Lenormand studies I also recommend The Complete Lenormand Oracle Handbook: Reading the Language and Symbols of the Cards, by Caitlin Matthews.

Blessings!

The Blue Bird Lenormand

The Blue Bird Lenormand ($14.95 USD) is published by US Games, Inc. with a booklet by Stuart R. Kaplan. The Blue Bird Lenormand is a traditional Lenormand deck consisting of the typical 36 cards. No extra gender cards are included and the card titles, numeric, and playing card associations follow European tradition. The deck and booklet are housed I a blue tuckbox. The deck is named The Blue Bird Lenormand due to the little blue bird that graces the back of each card. Cards measure 2 3/8” x 3 ½”, which is typical Lenormand size. They arrive fairly stiff, but with repeated shuffling they break in just fine.

 The booklet is 40 pages long with a 13-page bibliography of Marie-Anne Adelaide Le Normand, the famous French fortuneteller whose name was borrowed to name the Lenormand system of divination. The booklet includes general card interpretations in the form of short paragraphs without keywords that are meant to serve only as a foundation and it is left up to the reader to gather additional information from other books that go into much more detail as to the manner in which the cards are to be read. Only one spread is included, the 36-card Grand Tableau and the method of Near and Far (or Near and Distant) reading is briefly summarized with Near and Far references also included within the individual card interpretations. A sample reading is also provided using the Grand Tableau.

 The cards themselves follow traditional European imagery. Playing card inserts are included on each card for those who practice cartomancy. The playing card inserts have the suit designs, but no numeric value other than the card’s number within the Lenormand system. The court card playing card inserts are figures dressed in the style of the 18th century French court, which was the historical period during which the Lenormand was created and first used. The card images of The Blue Bird Lenormand are quite lovely, and traditional in appearance. The card stock has a slightly varied yellowish hue to it that gives the deck an aged appearance, which adds a really lovely touch. The degree of aging appears to vary among the cards and some do not look aged at all. I hope I don’t need new glasses. In addition to the short interpretations within the guide booklet, each card also includes a verse that further explains the card’s meaning. The playing card insert and card verse are located in the upper half of the card while the Lenormand card image is located within the lower half of the card.

 Readers of Lenormand will know that directionality of the cards is important. Directionality refers to the orientation of the main symbol on the card being either toward the reader’s left or right. Directionality alters the interpretation of a reading. Ideally, the Lady and Gentleman cards should face in opposite directions. This way in a reading the people can face each other or appear back to back, either orientation of which will greatly alter the interpretation as to the health of the relationship. The Lady and Gentleman cards of The Blue Bird Lenormand both face to the reader’s right so in a spread they will never face each other nor will they ever appear back to back. The Clouds card, which is traditionally a directional card, is also somewhat confusing since the cloudy and sunny sides of the cards are not restricted to one side of the card or the other. I recommend that the reader decide for themselves the orientation of the gender cards and the Clouds card and always read those cards with your pre-chosen orientation.

 Other images within The Blue Bird Lenormand that exhibit varying degrees of directionality that can affect readings are: Cavalier (R), Ship (L), Snake (L), Coffin (L), Scythe (R), Birchrod (R), Fox (R), Bear (L), Stork (R), Ring (R), Book (R), Letter (R), and Fish (L). The orientation of the figures within the court playing card inserts should also be taken into account when considering directionality for readings.

 The images have a definite 18th century European feel and look to them. This will appeal to those readers who prefer reading with a traditional Lenormand deck. Personally, I find the imagery to be very quaint and I enjoy using this deck. For beginners, I do recommend that you supplement this deck with Andy Boroveshengra’s Lenormand 36 Cards or Rana George’s Essential Lenormand in order to further augment your Lenormand studies.

Blessings!

The Egyptian Lenormand: Question & Answer Time

The Egyptian Lenormand, by Nefer Khepri. Copyright Schiffer Books & NK, 2015.

The Egyptian Lenormand, by Nefer Khepri. Copyright Schiffer Books & NK, 2015.

Since Schiffer Books published my Egyptian Lenormand card & book set I am now being asked these questions often on Facebook, Twitter, & email so thought I’d answer them all here in this post for everyone’s convenience. If you have a question & you don’t see the answer here, please email me at IsisRaAnpu@gmail.com.

Q: What’s this I hear about “activation” of your deck? Is that something I can do myself?

A: My Lenormand is different from any other in that the images were channeled directly from the Egyptian deities with Whom I have been working for the past 2 decades. They wished for “their” system to be used not just as a Lenormand deck, but also for healing and magic. They placed specific energies into each image, but those energies must be activated via a ceremony for which all instructions are included in the accompanying guidebook. YES, you CAN do this for yourself! Once activated the deck goes beyond fortunetelling & becomes a valuable tool for healing & magical work.

Q: Why didn’t the self-published edition come with the 2 extra Activation cards that the Schiffer edition has?

A: The gods had other plans at the time. Although they did share some of the information with me when I first created the deck, they did not explain the entire process to me. They told me the full explanation would come “later.” Of course they are all-knowing so they KNEW that a major publisher would pick up my deck. I was unaware of that at the time. Once I signed my contract with Schiffer the gods then provided me with all the information needed in order to activate the deck and how it is meant to be used for healing (there’s a specific method detailed in the accompanying guidebook).

Q: Can I get you to activate a copy for me?

A: Most definitely. I sell signed AND activated copies through my deck’s official website; however, I also recommend to all who purchase a copy that they also take their deck through the Activation Ceremony as it is explained in the accompanying guidebook. That will then succeed in placing your own unique energy into your personal copy of the deck. I have had quite a few people now report back to me that after they purchased from Amazon & elsewhere they began using the deck right away for readings & were amazed, but that after they took their copy through the Activation Ceremony the deck became even more useful to them as readings became more accurate and much easier for them to interpret. When I activate your deck for you I also give it a Reiki Master attunement as well, since I am a master teacher & able to pass attunements.

Q: Do you ship worldwide?

A: Yes, I do, via Priority in the continental USA (excluding Alaska & Hawaii) and via 1st Class Air to everywhere else (including Alaska & Hawaii). I have 2 payment links at the website, so just use the one appropriate for your area of the world.

Q: Why does a deck from you cost so much more than Amazon?

A: Firstly, Amazon will undercut everyone regardless because they buy titles in massive bulk. When you order in bulk direct from the publisher, as Amazon does, they are pretty much given wholesale prices. Amazon can then afford to sell items cheaper than anyone else. Secondly, a deck from me costs more ($40, plus shipping) because I take the time to perform the full Activation Ceremony for your copy & give your copy a Reiki attunement. That requires my time & energy which is included in the $40 price tag.

Q: Where can I purchase a copy of The Egyptian Lenormand?

The Egyptian Lenormand, box lid.

A: The Egyptian Lenormand is available at most Amazon sites worldwide & at my publisher’s website, SchifferBooks.com. I have also seen it carried by BookDepository.com (they ship worldwide for free), Walmart, Target, BooksAMillion, and online at Barnes & Noble. You can also ask your local new age shop to carry it & the owners can order from New Leaf Book Distributors.

Q: Do you have any other decks for sale?

A: Yes, I do.

I have self-published “The Turtle Lenormand” & that is a deck that has at least one turtle on every card. I created it for myself initially simply because I adore turtles. It is a special Limited Edition that had a total one-time print-run of 50 copies. 28 copies remain available & each deck comes with a special Turtle Friend made by polymer clay artist, Susan Keen Krontz. My Turtle Lenormand is available at its official site:http://turtle-lenormand.com

Q: Are you working on any other decks?

A: Oh, yes I am! Several, in fact. All at once because that’s how us Geminis roll!

You can follow the progress of my first pictorial deck, which will also be my first oracle deck, at its own group on Facebook. This deck is called “The Aloha Spirit of Maui” and is based upon nearly 4,000 photographs I took myself on 3 separate vacations to Maui, Hawaii undertaken in 2009, 2011, & 2014. I plan to self-publish this deck sometime in early 2016 & it will consist of 44 cards. This deck also has its own blog that I plan to continue posting to now that I have other obligations taken care of & you can find it here.

If you’d like to keep up on a deck I’m creating of Spirit Guide Portraits you can do so at my other Facebook group: The Visionary Art of Nefer Khepri. I have no idea when this deck will be complete. All images are channeled from a wide variety of spirit guides so they come through when they come through & when there are orders to fill.

To order your own Spirit Guide Portrait, I am creating a NEW site, which is nearly complete. Portrait size is 9×12″ with the actual image being 8×11″ & they sell for $120 plus shipping. If anyone would like one sooner rather than later, let me know & I can send you a PayPal invoice as I have been accepting orders for a while now, but the site itself will be ready in the coming weeks. You can keep an eye on its development at http://contact-spirit-guides.com, but please note there are no payment links posted as of yet & I’m still working on the organization of the site.

I am also working on TWO tarot decks, one of which you can also keep up with in my Visionary Art group (link is above), but my other tarot deck is TOP SECRET. I have no projected completion dates as of yet for either of these projects, but for one deck I have 17 completed images already & for the other I have 14 images drawn & ready to paint.

Feel free to ask me questions & perhaps you will see your question included in a future blog post.

Upcoming post: weird energy appearing in anniversary photos. What could it be? Debunkers are welcome to comment because I really want an explanation.

Wishing you many blessings,

My latest deck creation is The Turtle Lenormand.  It is a traditional Lenormand, but has at least one turtle depicted on every card. Some turtles are realistically rendered while others are whimsical. The cards are all traditionally titled and work well with the traditional Lenormand interpretations.  Directionality in reading the Clouds, Scythe and one version of The Book card have been maintained. I created The Turtle Lenormand simply because I have always loved turtles.

Gamera, from the original B&W film, "Gamera" (1965) taking out the Japanese military in fine turtle-y fashion.

Gamera, from the original B&W film, “Gamera” (1965) taking out the Japanese military in fine turtle-y fashion.

I had two turtles when I was little whom I assumed were a boy and a girl so I named them Mickey and Minnie. I’ve always really resonated with turtles and the neighborhood kids’ nickname for me was “Turtle.”  I think it was seeing Gamera when I was 9 that really cinched my love of turtles.

 

If you have never seen a Gamera movie, treat yourself sometime. They are done in the same vein as the Godzilla movies (kaiju). Yes, they are cheesy and somewhat campy, but they’re so much fun. Gamera is a giant prehistoric turtle in hibernation under the arctic ice when he is awoken by atomic blasts. Thus begins a movie franchise that has culminated in 12 films with rumors of a 13th film in the works (please, please, please!).

What kid wouldn’t love a flying turtle (yes, Gamera is so awesome that he FLIES and he has jet rockets!!). In addition to flying, Gamera can breathe fire and he loves children. One of his official titles is “Friend of All Children.” He’s a good guy. No wonder I have always loved turtles!

My first Lenormand deck, The Egyptian Lenormand, combined my two great loves: the ancient Egyptian civilization (a love that began also when I was 9 ~ coincidence??) with the Lenormand system of cartomancy. I figured for my second foray into deck creation why not combine my love of Lenormand with my love of turtles? Plus, I wanted a deck of nothing but turtles for myself, just as I had wanted an Egyptian-themed Lenormand for myself.

Hence, The Turtle Lenormand was conceived. The images first took form as a bunch of badly scribbled sketch-ideas I drew late one night when I was suffering from insomnia, and now those ideas have taken final form into drawings and card images.

All images contained within The Turtle Lenormand are created on mixed media card stock. It’s a slightly heavier card stock than bristol smooth or bristol vellum and better allows for the blending of watercolor pencils without paper warp. I use a variety of artistic mediums ranging from polychromos pencils, watercolor pencils, Caran D’Ache watercolor crayons, to Copic Markers, acrylic paints, and fine line black Copic and Sakura drawing markers. I prefer to have a variety of artistic mediums at my disposal because each gives the piece a different look and feel.

The Turtle Lenormand is available for immediate shipping worldwide. It is is a Special Limited Edition consisting of ONLY a 50 copy print run. Once these are gone I have no plans to reprint. Currently, only 28 copies remain in stock.

The Turtle Lenormand is accompanied by additional cards (Dedication Card, Artist’s Bio Signature Card, and an extra version of The Rider, Clouds & Book). The Special Edition  also comes with an extra turtle-ly surprise created specifically for my project by polymer clay artist, Susan Keen Krontz. The surprise is your own Turtle Friend that comes in its own pouch. There is one Turtle Friend per deck and no two are exactly alike. The deck is housed in its own pouch as well.

The Turtle Lenormand is an Art Deck. What that means is this: every image was created by hand. Drawn by hand, colored by hand, and then tweaked by hand. The only time a computer becomes involved in the process at all is in the final scanning of the images into my computer so I can then send the images off to the printer. Each image requires AT LEAST 10 hours of combined research and drawing time. The process of coloring each image ranges with the complexity of the image. For example, The Tree card took me about 10 hours to complete because it’s a pretty simple design; however, The Clover card, which is more complicated, took me several days that combined for a total of 43 hours.

In retrospect, as I think back to my childhood of watching the Saturday afternoon Creature Feature shows, and later while still growing up in the Chicagoland area, watching the Son of Svenghouli, I’d like to thank both of these shows for airing those old cheesy Japanese monster movies. We all are very familiar with the great Godzilla, but if it weren’t for the odd airing now & then I never would have heard of Gamera The Great. Any turtle who has rocket jets that allow him to fly through the air at great speed requires “The Great” as his epithet, wouldn’t you agree?

Thank you, Gamera. Without you this turtle and Lenormand mash-up never would have occurred.

To order my Turtle Lenormand, please visit: http://turtle-lenormand.com. If you’d like to see Beth Henry’s video review of my deck, please visit her YouTube channel.

I also have signed & activated copies of my Egyptian Lenormand (Schiffer Books, 2015 edition) available at http://egyptianlenormand.com. By “activated” that means I take your copy through the Activation Ceremony (which is fully explained in the accompanying guidebook) so that your deck arrives ready to be used not just for divination, but also for healing and magical manifestation, which makes my Egyptian Lenormand unique among Lenormand decks.

I have received another shipment from my publisher, Schiffer Books, & I now have additional copies of The Egyptian Lenormand back in stock. They come signed and I take them personally through the entire Activation Ceremony as presented in the accompanying guidebook. Your deck arrives activated for the additional uses of healing and magical manifestation should you decide to use it in that manner.  Although it does arrive activated I do recommend you also take your own deck through the Activation Ceremony as discussed in the book. This will lend your own unique energies to your deck that will result in even greater accuracy in your readings.

Currently I have only 9 copies in stock, all ready for immediate shipping. I ship worldwide. In America I ship via Priority and elsewhere I ship via First Class Air.

 The Egyptian Lenormand now has seven reviews posted on Amazon. Each reviewer gives The Egyptian Lenormand 5 stars.  I thank every person who was kind enough to take the time to post their review to Amazon.

I have been receiving many comments in email about my deck, three of which I include below:

When I opened the box & removed the cards they tingled in my hand. It kind of scared me & I almost dropped them. I’ve never felt anything like that before. I immediately did a reading with them & WOW! That’s all I can say. I was floored. Thank you for creating such a lovely deck that really speaks to me.” ~ Kara, Brookfield, IL.

I have never read Lenormand cards. I don’t know what they are, but I just HAD to buy your deck because I have had a life-long love of all things having to do with ancient Egypt. Your artwork is lovely. The bright colors just seem to dance off the cards. They all look so pretty together. I love the book. It is the only book I have read about Lenormand cards and your keywords and descriptions of the cards, plus the sample readings you include have made learning very easy for me. I thought it would be hard like tarot, but it’s not – thank God!” ~ Kathleen, Boca Raton, FL.

I really didn’t think Egyptian imagery would work well with the Lenormand system. I bought your deck simply out of curiosity. I prefer to work with more traditional decks like the Blue Owl, which is my favorite, but I have to say once I read the book I could easily see how you merged the Egyptian imagery very well with traditional Lenormand card interpretations. Where symbols deviate they do so for good reason & I appreciate how well you explain this in the book. I’m very glad I bought this deck & look forward to years of using it.” Martha, Boulder, CO.

 If you’d like to read more, Amazon reviews are posted at Amazon.

I am including the links to three video reviews as well.  The first is by Beth Henry of Divinationary. You can find it here at her YouTube channel.  The second is by Anita Perez of A Metaphysician’s Journal. You can find her review on YouTube as well. The third is posted by MonsoonMagick at her YouTube channel. I am very grateful to Beth, Anita & MonsoonMagick for their informative reviews of The Egyptian Lenormand. Please do check them out.

I conclude with a lovely collage photo done by Bobbie Jo Drake. If you follow me on Twitter you will recognize this image, no doubt. I thank Bobbie Jo for her kind permission to use her photo.

I would like to thank the six individuals who took the time to post their reviews of my deck, The Egyptian Lenormand, to Amazon. Koneta Bailey of the blog “New Paths Tarot”, Mary Nale of Attune Magazine, Anita Perez, LaRaine, Anna from InnanaWorks, & Celene. I very much appreciate your feedback & that you took the time to share your opinions & experiences with The Egyptian Lenormand.

There are now a total of six deck reviews posted at Amazon, each of which gives The Egyptian Lenormand 5 stars. You can view the reviews here. 

If you would like to order a signed & activated deck, they are ONLY available directly from me. I ship worldwide via 1st class. I tend to ship out on Mondays and Fridays, weather permitting. Order directly from me at my deck’s official site.

For those of you who have been kind enough to purchase The Egyptian Lenormand, I humbly thank you and ask that you please follow the Activation Ceremony in the guidebook and fully activate your deck. There are very special energies within the images. They were all channeled (with the sole exception of The Child) from the Egyptian deities with Whom I work. There is a chapter devoted to the Activation Ceremony with full and easy to follow instructions. There are also chapters on how to use the deck for healing and magical manifestation. It cannot be used for either unless it is activated. Without activation is it merely a deck for divination/fortune telling. Once activated, The Egyptian Lenormand becomes a powerful tool.

I thank everyone who has been contacting me via email & social media to share
