Lenormand No Layout Readings – Which House?


January 29, 2008 by Art of Cartomancy

My friend Kelly is in the process of purchasing a new home. She’s found two houses that she likes, but each has its own pros and cons, and she can’t decide which she wants to bid on. 

Yesterday she asked me if the cards could help her determine which of the two homes would be the best choice in terms of her future comfort, security and happiness.  I thought it was a great idea, and so here follow the readings on each home under consideration.

For the readings I used the No Layout system, and chose The House as the Key Card.  I  charged the Key Card with the image and address of the house. (For information about the No Layout System, and how to charge a Key Card, please see The Secrets of the Lenormand Oracle by Sylvie Steinbach).

Reading 1 – The House on Seabridge Place


09 Bouquet + 28 Man + 34 Fish + 04 House + 06 Clouds + 27 Letter + 36 Cross

My Interpretation:

Bouquet + Man + Fish =  This home is the more attractive of the two, and it’s the one the client favors (bouquet).  The man + Fish + house represents the real estate agent who is presenting the home.

Clouds + Letter + Cross =  These cards don’t look very favorable.  The clouds + letter show something unrevealed about the house that will come to light in some documentation or a written report.  This information may reveal a hidden problem with the house, and the Cross shows that the problem could cause the client grief. 

The House + Clouds makes me think that the house may be unstable, so there may be some structural problems that would be revealed in an inspection.  The information (Letter) may cause the homeowner to regret purchasing the house (Cross) in the end.

These cards indicate that the house on Seabridge may be the nicer of the two homes, but there is something unclear about the house that will be revealed in some paperwork that will cause worry and anxiety. 

This home does not appear to be a good choice.  This reading makes sense since the deal seems way too good to be true.  The house is currently owned by the bank.  It had been on the market previously and did not sell, and now it’s being offered ‘as is’ at a reduced price which could mean there are unsuspected problems.

Reading 2 – The House on Stonewood Court


01 Horseman + 28 Man + 29 Woman + 04 House + 26 Book + 09 Bouquet + 32 Moon

My Interpretation:

Horseman + Man + WomanThe woman represents the client, and since her card falls next to the Key Card, the focus of the reading shifts to her.  The Man represents the real estate agent as in the previous reading, and the Horseman shows that he presented the news of the house to the client.

House + Book + Bouquet + Moon = These cards show something unknown or unexpected about this home as well.  The Bouquet + moon indicate that whatever is discovered will be something favorable, and will bring happiness and contentment. The Moon suggest that this could be Kelly’s dream home. Both the Horseman and the Moon suggest fast timing, so purchasing this house would most likely be a smooth deal that would close very quickly.

The Stonewood house looks like the better choice.  Kelly just doesn’t realize yet how much she would love this house, and it could end up being her dream home.

Reading 3 – Stonewood Ct, is it really the right choice?

Kelly was not convinced about the Stonewood house because the other house seems like a better deal for the money, so I suggested that we double check to make sure it was the Stonewood house that the cards were saying would be so wonderful for her.  For this 3rd reading I used The House again as the Key Card. 


04 House + 09 Bouquet + 16 Stars + 21 Mountain

These cards confirm that Kelly would be happy at the Stonewood house. I find it particularly interesting that the House was the first card Kelly picked indicating that there would be no cards to show the background or recent past.  This makes sense since she was asking about her future in the house, and she has no past there.

The Bouquet + Stars confirm that the home will be everything Kelly could hope for, and that she will be very happy there.  The Mountain shows delay and non-movement, and indicates that Kelly would settle there permanently, and  stay in the house a very long time.

    Hi Aristede,

    Firstly just want to compliment you on your reading skills, I’m most impressed by how fast you’ve picked up Sylvies method, it shows your dedication to the study, and obviously you will become a talented reader. I think it’s good how Sylvie has made us disciplined and keeping it simple. I know in the past that I used to speculate with combinations which I was unsure about, some how this method doesn’t allow us to do that very much.

    So in light of your interpretations, It certainly looks as though the stone court property is the pick of the crop. I can’t think of anything more.

    Hi Phoenix,

    Thank you! I think you’re doing an amazing job yourself on picking up Sylvie’s method too.

    We went back today to look at the two houses, and now Kelly is suddenly in love with the Stonewood home, and is in process of putting in her bid. We shall see how it all plays out!

    How did this work out for Kelly? Did she purchase the Stonewood home?

    Hi anndelise,

    Oops! I never did get around to providing an update to this reading. Sorry about that. 🙂

    Yes, Kelly did end up purchasing the Stonewood home.

    She had decided that she preferred the Seabridge home regardless of what the cards said, so she first put a bid on that house, but the deal fell through. It was obvious that it wasn’t meant to be.

    The funny thing is that the Seabridge home is back on the market again, so there’s something funky going on with that house.

    Kelly won the bid on the Stonewood house, and she is very happy in her new home. I was there this past weekend for a Memorial Day barbecue, and the house is everything the cards promised it would be.
