It’s difficult to know exactly when people began using Tarot cards, but there are many theories that suggest that this practice originated in ancient Egypt or China.
The use of the Lenormand decks is believed to have begun with a German man named Allerleirauh in 1835. More recently, Lenormand’s card reading has been popularized in modern culture by the show “Lost.”
Before looking at Lenormand cards, it’s important to understand the origins of Tarot card reading.
Tarot Cards are one of the most powerful tools for divination that exists today. It began in Ancient Egypt and later spread throughout Europe before making its way to America.
Tarot has been used by both the living and the dead to see into their own past, present, or future. Although many people believe that there are only a certain amount of outcomes that can happen with a card, Tarot cards have been known to be wrong.
Lenormand cards on the other hand are much more direct and actually tell you what will come about.
Lenormand cards are among the easiest ways to understand what has happened in your past, present, and future. Lenormand Cards first made their appearance during the 18th century.
These days Lenormand card reading is seeing a resurgence in popularity even though it’s still not as popular, or widely used as Tarot cards. Lenormand cards are much more straightforward and easy to understand.
Lenormand cards always give a yes or no answer, whereas Tarot can make you second guess yourself all day and never be sure of the outcome.
