Hi

I ever tried to get an energetic access to the Lenormand System. Normaly it´s only used as a collection of symbolic cards. But I pretend that I can show a few inner connections, what makes a systematical approach possible.

And also I always had a little a problem with the "normal" cards, because the energetic expression is to weak in my eyes. Thats a thing what I want to intensify by painting "energetic cards". They shall have simple symbols with a clearer energetic expression. And also the colours shall underline this direction. These are my first scetches

p.s. I think, I will set a PDF-free-print-version on my website in the end. I need it anyway to have it printed out in the copyshop on the other side of the street ;)

p.s.p.s. please moove to "Non Tarot" if possible. My fault

Thanks ;-)

But the more interesting thing is maybe the systematical background. I´l try to explain it according to the origin of the cards.

No, the colours too, but not only. I think, I found a system, a logical connection between the several cards and their position, and I can explain it.

Well, the first 16 cards are finished. But I want to start with introducing the first four. These are Nr.1 the rocket, Nr.8 the death, Nr.25 the ring and Nr.32 the moon.

Why these four? Well I took the first one and following the three cards with the same position in relation to the middle of the first 32 "houses" (please see above).

These are the cornercards, and they all have a same common content. In all the four cards the former tendency coming from the middle suddenly breaks down. So you get a contrary meaning in the corners (similar as the 5th in Tarot).

1. The Rocket (normaly a horseman)
The rocket is the active part of the moon. This is the area of earth. The rocket breaks out.



8. The Death (normaly coffin)
You see a wreath, as we use at a burial. In the area of air thinking comes to an end, and the ring (25) is gonna be split of in the four elements again.



25. The Ring

In the area of water (everything flows together to one) the ring shows new connections. For connections we need an inside and an outside, what means new life, new separation.



32. The Moon

The moon is the passive part of the rocket. After the sun has burned out all its fire it needs energy from outside. This is a normal effect in a cycle.

This is the back of the cards. I was inspired by a pupils work I found in the internet. I think, the crossing waves are a very fitting and decorative symbol for energy and the differences inside an energetic field.

A first complete view on the nearly finished cards.
(The number of the cross is not yet correct, but I´ll fix that)

Hi Emmsma

No orders ;-) This "Energetic Lenormand" will be a present. I will put a print PDF file somewhere, what you can download for free. You only will have to go to the next copyshop than and have it printed out on a cardboard. There also will be a back file to get the back at the right position. Cut it out and work with it. The contents can be discussed in a forum.

Not being an artist myself to be able to do it, I was kind of just dreaming about a Lenormand deck like this!!!:ce  A simple, modern, expressive version. It was missing from the market  and I was surfing the net to find what I was looking for and hoping someone, someday will do it! As soon as I glanced to this one I new this was the one I was looking for! I would've been the first one to order it (sorry the second one as there is another inquiry/post before mine here) - so generous of you to offer it for print!

Thank you for making my dream true   :hp

Hi dear people :hp

Thanks for the kind words. And here is the PDF for you. Allowed is a personal use. Not allowed is a commercial use, something like using in books, without my o.k, or printing out and selling.

CMYK version:

This version is for printers that urgently need a 4 colour-file.

Front: http://www.langustl.de/sonstigefotos/energeticlenormandcmyk.pdf
Back: http://www.langustl.de/sonstigefotos/energeticlenormandbackcmyk.pdf


The version for home printers is the RGB  version. I guess, it also must work in a copyshop. It does in the copyshops I know and use. If you can use this version please do. The result is really very good and shows the colours I wanted.

RGB version:

Front: http://www.langustl.de/sonstigefotos/energeticlenormandrgb.pdf
Back: http://www.langustl.de/sonstigefotos/energeticlenormandbackrgb.pdf

Maybe you will have a little white border on the backs of some cards. This comes, if the printer leaves more not printed space there. Than just cut the white edge of all cards away and round the corners, looks better anyway. Maybe I have time to change the versions again later to avoid this probleme, if somebody wants the white borders.

Good luck and a lot of fun

Well, and I wanna say a few words to another four cards. These are the four you find besides the four I explained before. It´s the clover, the snake, the book and the sun. In my eyes these four cards represent the highest intensity of the element where you find it.

The Clover / area of earth:

The clover and the sun are a pair. The clover got all the energy of the sun. It is something like a medicinal plant. Highly compressed energy or good vibes (forced by you yourself), materialized (green) in a lot of little aspects or only in one, coming back to you at the right time and than giving you back that energy you need in that moment.



 
Die Schlange / Bereich Luft:

Sie stellt höchstes Wissen und Bewusstsein dar, das auf einem langen Weg durch viele Erfahrungen erworben wurde. Das Pendeln dazwischen führt immer näher zur Wahrheit. Als Person kann hier wirklich so eine Art Königin der Schwerter stehen, die abgeklärte Frau.




The Book / area of water:

The book keeps all the knowledge and consciousness inside. All this is present but not obvious or open. It means unconsciousness (dark colours and violet). It´s the opposite of the snake.




The Sun / area of fire:

This is the highest energy. Everything is free, on a new way, will get a new form soon. This is something like pure energy, what we for example feel, if we highly motivated start a new project. At this point we can ask ourself what energy actually is at all.

Energetic indeed! The colours are really vibrant. And they look good together in that picture.

Thank you BlueToy

I tried to get the cards very simple and "speaking". I guess it works :hp.


The explanantion of next four cards. The Ship, the Cloud, the Letter and the Lilies. These four cars show a kind of communication with the corresponding neighbour energy.

The Ship:

The Ship is a "child of the earth", it´s made from wood. But it dares to cross the water. This is really a riskfull journey. But the enormous size of the hull gives as much safety as possible. This shows the try of mooving with the lowest risk.

http://www.langustl.de/elenormandgr...schiffengg.html


The Cloud:

Everywhere in the air there are tiniest particles of water. We can´t see them. But if it cools down these particles assemble and the haze condenses. So we never have any 100% clear air. The cloud shows how our plans and thoughts begin to materialize or the other way how material things hinder the clearness.

http://www.langustl.de/elenormandgross/06wolkeengg.html


The Letter:

The Book is symbolizing all the hidden knowlidge. The element of water got the quality to neutralize all polarities, all possibilities. The Letter is open and shows us a bit of this knowlidge or a few informations. This means news or communication in one direction, opening for new possibilities.

http://www.langustl.de/elenormandgross/27briefengg.html


The Lilies:

If the Sun shows us the full energy, the Lilies try to make a compromise. Fire is leading back to water, the fire is something like framed, it is not free. We use it´s energy but controlled. That´s why the Lilies look like a candleholder. Eroticism is used to build a family, for example, meanings like this.

I printed out the cards at a FedEx (formerly Kinkos) shop, it worked perfectly! It's a lovely deck! Full of 'life' as well (which was the purpose I guess)

:hp

Thanks so much! (and for the explanation of your cards you are posting here - love to learn about the artist's vision of cards)

rylla


forgot to mention, the size of the cards are great too!

Hi

Well, I want to go on with the explanations. We come to a middle area. At this point the energies should slip into another. We leave one and begin the next. The cards seem to be at the wrong place there. The house fits much more to the area of air than to the area of earth, but it´s lying on the left (earth). The tree fits much more to the energy of earth than to air, but it´s lying on the right. They seem to be changed. The same with the man, lying on the left (water) and the woman, lying on the right (fire). I think it goes like this. If you want to start something new, there are times, when you´re "looking forward", what means, at the end of the old thing you´re sometimes more in the new than in the old. And if you have started the new thing sometimes you´re more in the old than in the new, because you glue a bit at the old used energy.




The cards

House

It shows structure in a material form. It´s a frame protecting a content, very clear. The blue and green are material colours for me. The yellow shows consciousness.



Tree

The tree got a very solid and somehow clear bot. The branches and leaves grow much more free, but slowly. It is alive, the house got the solide things outside, the tree inside with the bot. The blue shows structure, green life, the light green around shows consciousness. The experience makes the tree grow slowly, carefully. Like an old wise human.



Man

He wrote his aim "becoming a man" on his flag. That´s what we see. But inside he´s much more a woman than he thinks. We see this, because he´s coming from the female side. He´s somehow Adam. Walking out of the purple (water) into red (fire)



Woman

The same with the woman, but the other direction. Walking out of the orange (fire) into the blue (water/earth)
