Disclosure I received an PDF ARC copy of this book from netgalleycom However due to the LOVE of this book I purchased the ePub version as SOON as I found out that google Play had a copy Yes this book is that goodPatrick Dunn's Cartomancy with the Lenormand and the Tarot blew my expectations out of the water turned what I thought good tarot books were and indulged my love for language and cartomancy divination techniues When I reuested this title for review I figured that this book would represent the first in a trend of books that showed tarotLenormand enthusiasts how to combine their love of the cartomancy techniues to blend together I was wrong but happily soThis book explains both cartomancy styles side by side There's a bit of linguistic lore and alchemical history in this book but it's not enough to scare the layman away Dunn discusses how the spiritual beliefs at the time each deck influenced their structure and therefore their strengths and weaknesses Much of the later chapters in the book focus on the practical side of how to use the decks for reading magic and other explorationDunn's wit is great tarot of the fraternities tarot of the autobots etc and reading the PDF became almost impossible due to the amount of information I wanted to highlight and reference for later Once I purchased my own copy I devoured this book uickly and bookmarked the exercises and techniues that I wanted to explore furtherDunn's passion for languages is well suited to discuss the symbolic language of both these cartomancy types The way that Dunn presents learning tarot mirrors my own toss the LWB and build your own symbolic language with the cards directly Readings are explained in the terms of telling the story and relating the symbols in a meaningful wayBottom Line I heartily recommend this to everyone interested in cartomancy It's become a new favorite of mine and one that I'll be re reading throughout the years At this point there aren't that many books in English about Lenormand divination so it would be reasonable to expect that the few books that do exist would focus on the basics of Lenormand and how to get started Many of them do just that but that's not this book's strength and I can't recommend it as your Very First Lenormand Book Dunn is forthright about that saying that this is only secondarily a how to book but it's not that obvious from the cover and the book descriptionThis book is intended for a reader who is familiar with the tarot but not with Lenormand It's mainly about Lenormand and secondarily about the Major Arcana there isn't much about the Minor Arcana Dunn provides a list of keywords and sample illustrations for both of these and if you're feeling adventurous you could get started learning Lenormand from that But I think many people want a bit to work with when they're learning a new system For instance card combinations are important in reading Lenormand I enjoyed Dunn's analysis of four kinds of card combinations but if this was my introduction to Lenormand that would have confused me He refused to list card combinations—and I understand there's always a danger when you have a list like that of deciding those are the only right answers and not trusting your intuition—but I liked seeing several examples in other books to get a feel for themSince other books will lead you through the basics I recommend reading this book for what it covers that those others don't There's a chapter on asking uestions that would be useful for any form of divination not just cartomancy Dunn discusses uestions that reveal meaning and those that reveal data why some uerents don't seem to have uestions or don't want to tell you what they are and how to focus a uestion so that it gets at what the uerent actually wants to know He speculates on how divination works and offers suggestions on how to use abductive reasoning nonrational thinking to perceive patterns He talks about how to pay attention to how your body feels when you consider card combinations so that you're less likely to lie to yourself about a reading There's a chapter on divination and magic for when you wish to shape events not just learn about them Dunn writes with a sense of humor the first appendix is called Okay Fine A List of Meanings for the Cards if You Insist and I thought the book was not just informative but a pleasure to read I really liked this as a source of ideas for deeper connection to individual cards use of Lenormand in conjunction with tarot and ideas for incorporating both in magical practice Personally I think I got out of it since I already had a strong foundation in both systems; I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to a beginner in either I do appreciate Dunn's references for that reason though you can't go wrong with 78 Degrees of Wisdom for a deep dive in tarot For a recent and very thorough English work on Lenormand for beginners check out Caitlin Matthews I love this book not for the descriptions Patrick provides for Lenormand and Tarot but for his overall opinion on Cartomancy Learned about Tarot from this book than from my previous teachers and other books Expanded my understanding and knowledge of Lenormand as well
