A Domineering Friend – Three Card Lenormand Draw


September 3, 2011 by Art of Cartomancy

You’ll notice from the archives that I have given up on posting Lenormand Daily Card Draws, mainly because the daily messages rarely seem to pertain to the day on which I draw the cards.  In most cases the predictions will materialize, but often days or even weeks after the day in question.

Once in a while the mood strikes me to draw two or three cards in the morning before I start my day for insight and guidance, but I normally don’t bother to post the reading.  Today’s cards are so specific that I thought it would be a fun exercise to record the reading to see how accurate it turns out to be.

For this spread I used the Iris Lenormand © Uitgeverij Schors – Amsterdam.  I’m not fond of the verses in Dutch, which I don’t speak unfortunately, but I’m enchanted by the card images.  My interpretation:

The Tower as the Premise represents a domineering personality.
The Dog as the Problem or Situation is a friend.
The Whip as the Outcome shows a disagreement or dispute.

It looks to me like a friend is going to be domineering or condescending and argumentative, and this unfavorable attitude is going to spark an argument between us.

I’ll post feedback on this reading as soon as the situation manifests in my life.

Update – Sept 16, 2011:

Unfortunately, this prediction proved exceedingly accurate the following evening.  As it turns out, the domineering friend was in fact my older brother who thinks of himself as head of the family since our dad passed.  My brother called to ask a favor and as usual the conversation quickly degenerated into a lecture about how I’m wasting my life and squandering my talents and abilities. [sigh].

    Hi Lenormand guy,

    Glad to see your posting. I normally do the 7 or 9 card spread and I used the Titiana cards. I want you to recommend the spread that is easier for beginners.

    Hope to hear from you.

    Cheers, Bel

    • Hi Bel,

      When I started with the Lenormand cards I found that large spreads were confusing and overwhelming. I began with the simple three card spread with either past, present, and future; or premise, problem, outcome. I still use the the three card spread to answer simple yes or no questions, and it works brilliantly. Once I got comfortable with reading three cards, it was easier for me to handle larger groups of cards. Now like to use 5 card or 7 card spread for more in-depth questions.

      Thank you for stopping by!
