Easy Lenormand
 
Last week I went to Barnes and Noble to get Easy Lenormand. It's a lot different than Tarot. This deck got about by 36 cards and there's three type of cards: positive, negative and neutral. I'm enjoying this deck. :)

I love Lenormand, it's my go-to.

If you want to take it further and get really good with it, I can recommend this book with no reservations - it's the best, hands down. Andy put it together from the courses he used to run a few years back. If you work through it step-by-step, you'll be an utter badass. :D

I like Caitlin Matthews on the Lenormand too.

Yes, Caitlin is great! So is Rana George.
Caitlin does include some exercises using the insets that are fun, but not really part of the reading tradition. She doesn't try to present them as such, but I've seen people get confused on that point.

Rana uses different card meanings than I do, but I enjoyed her book a lot - she's a great reader, very good at getting the meanings to stretch to fit the context without going off the rails.

I recommend all three, but working through them sequentially, and not getting all three at once and trying to absorb everyone's card meanings, etc. as some of them contradict and it would be confusing.

I'm not really working this system, I'm a Tarot enthusiast and I've been working with the Ogham this past while, but a deck collector till the day I die. And I am a fan of Caitlin and John.

Not enough years in a lifetime to learn everything well, I agree.
I do read Tarot, but never got around to Ogham. I dabble in some other things (Runes, I Ching, etc.) but I'm primarily a cartomante.

I read Rana George book at the library.

I think it was very well written. I been reading it for a couple of months every time I check this book out of the library.
