The Lenormand Moon


May 2, 2008 by Art of Cartomancy

I think if I had to choose a favorite Lenormand card, it would be a toss up between The Tower and The Moon. This morning I was bored by the idea of pulling a three card draw, so instead I decided to record some of my musings about the Lenormand Moon.

In my readings, the Moon represents feelings and emotions.  It indicates imagination, creativity and artistic ability.  It denotes sensitivity, intuition and psychic ability.

The moon represents femininity and the female gender. It indicates the night time, and nocturnal dreams. For questions about timing, the moon shows that an event will occur ‘soon,’ usually within one month.

I think my favorite aspect of the Moon card is that it can be used in a very practical way as a gender marker. When it falls with the Child, the Moon indicates a female child. With the Bear, it could represent the querent’s mother or grandmother.  With the Tree, it could point to female problems.

The Moon with the Heart or the Ring, adds a touch of romance.  With the Man or Woman, it reveals a sensitive, romantic nature.  And with the book, it can represent occult teachings.

In my own readings, I’ve found that the Moon often reveals where the querent’s emotions are invested.  It can reveal who or what the querent cares most about, and it’s one of the first cards I look for in a spread.

A Few More Moon Combinations that work for me:

Moon + Fox = the night shift, moonlighting.
Moon + Coffin = feeling numb.
Moon + Clouds = emotionally unstable
Moon + Garden = a night out on the town
Moon + Crossroads = fluctuating emotions

    Hi Aristede

    Haven’t seen you post here for a long time, good that I checked it otherwise I would of missed that lovely “Moon” the moon brings up alot of those deep seated emotional feelings, that are expressed while dreaming. Then we wake up with some “hairbrained idea” that inspires us to start a new project some form of creativity perhaps, or just plain feeling mushy. It is a lovely card isn’t it?

    Hi Phoenix,

    Yeah, I’ve not posted in a while, but I guess I was inspired by the moon. 🙂

    I love the Moon in the Lenormand deck because it doesn’t usually carry the negative connotations that it does in Tarot such as deception and intrigues.

    Hello Aristede,

    So glad I read this post on the Lenomand Moon. It has helped me understand the meaning of the Lenormand Moon much better. I have never really liked the Moon card in Lenormand just because I can’t get away from the meaning of the Tarot Moon. What a good idea it was of yours to write your musings on the cards! I’m going to write them down in a notebook because I think they are some of the most insightful things I’ve read about the Lenormand cards in a long time! Your combinations are great.

    Hi Sammie,

    I’m glad you enjoyed the post. 🙂

    My basic understanding of the card came from Sylvie Steinbach’s ‘The Secrets of the Lenormand Oracle,’ and I’ve grown from there through my own experiences and also incorporating ideas from other sources I’ve read. None of it is really original. 🙂
