Learning Lenormand with Donnaleigh

July 10th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

For those Tarot readers out there interested in learning to read with a Lenormand deck, Donnaleigh de LaRose has been posting some great new tutorials.

The one below focuses on seeing Lenormand cards as pictographs, each with a specific definition, similar to Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese logograms.

Reading these cards is different from reading Tarot cards. In Tarot, it matters what’s in the actual image on the card. In Lenormand, not so much (if at all).

For instance, if you get the dog card, it only really matters that it’s a dog, not whether the dog in the image is pictured out in the yard, or sitting on a pillow. A dog is a dog. Where he sits in the spread is important, not how he looks.

For a much better explanation, watch what Donnaleigh has to say about it …

Yoav Ben-Dov's Tarot

May 9th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

A few months back, Donnaleigh de LaRose recommended I read Yoav Ben-Dov’s Tarot: The Open Reading. I’m really glad she did, I like it. It talks about the Tarot Marseille, and as might be expected by the title, Yoav Ben-Dov’s ‘Open Reading’ style of using it.

Especially for those readers who might be intimidated by the Marseille deck, I recommend this book. But I think all readers are likely to find it interesting, whether they use the Tarot Marseille or not. With it’s no-rote style of teaching the cards, Ben-Dov’s method can reinvigorate how you look at any deck.

In addition to writing the book, Yoav Ben-Dov has also done his own restoration of the Marseille deck called the CBD Tarot de Marseille. I don’t have a copy of it yet myself, but I definitely want one, and watching Donnaleigh’s video review of it (below) makes me want it even more.

Tarot and Runes

February 21st, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

If you’re someone who likes playing with more than one divinatory system at a time, you might want to check out the video below by Beyond Worlds Donnaleigh de LaRose.

In it, she demonstrates an exercise combining Tarot and Runes, using the Runes to further explain the Tarot card pulled.

If you’re new to Runes, but interested in learning, before watching the video below, take a look at Donnaleigh’s Runes Made Easy Video Series 1-4.

Great stuff!!

Beyond Worlds – New Tarot Episodes!

January 22nd, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

Great news for fans of the Beyond Worlds Tarot Intensives … they’re starting up again! Or should I say, they’re continuing where we left off.

The last cards we looked at were the 3’s in the Minor Arcana. I’m not sure exactly when, but very soon the 4’s will finally get their day.

I’ll let you know as soon as I do!

Till then though you might want to listen to a couple of new Beyond Worlds episodes we recently recorded.

The first was with Nadine Bernadette Roberts who shared her own personal (and rather inspirational) story of how she became a Tarot reader when the world around her seemed to be saying ‘no’.

And the second features Richard Abbot of the Hermitage Development Centre. He spoke with us about the power of numbers and how we might use them for self-development and understanding.

Interesting stuff.

Take a listen to these and other great episodes at Beyond Worlds.

In the video below, Donnaleigh demonstrates how to read Tarot as one might read Lenormand cards – with a more straight-forward, key-word like style.

Donnaleigh uses a Lenormand deck in the video, but you can do the same exercises using your Tarot deck.

Get out your cards, and give it a try …

Tarot and Lenormand Working Together

June 28th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Donnaleigh de LaRose has posted another fabulous video about how to work with Tarot and Lenormand together.

In this case she demonstrates how to use both decks in the same reading.

She shows us how the Lenormand is particularly good at answering how something is likely to take place, while the Tarot focuses more on how that something might feel.

Get out your own cards and take a look. You’ll want to try this technique yourself after watching.

And visit Donnaleigh’s YouTube page for more great exercises.
