The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Deck Contains a Petit Lenormand

Above, Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Deck

For those who have the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards sitting on a shelf collecting dust, it can be used as a Petit Lenormand.


Things to note:

  • You have to separate the 36 Lenormand cards from the full-sized 52-card deck. I've listed them below.
  • They are NOT printed with the proper number on them. The number won't be important for those who are beginning Lenormand. It becomes more a part of the process when you start working deeply with the Grand Tableau, though (a spread for advanced readers that includes all 36 cards). The images will work great, though.
  • Some of the meanings printed on the cards disagree with the system I've been taught. I choose to ignore them.
  • There is no Cross card.  So instead, I used #37, the rapiers. They are two swords "crossed" and considered a negative card.

The French Cartomancy (left)  and The Original Lenormand (center) contain the Queen of Diamonds insert, while the Gypsy Witch deck (right) contains the Ace of Clubs.
