In Petit Lenormand Love Relationships – Part I, we examined joiner cards and how close two cards are to each other in order to determine relationships. Of course, when looking at cards that join two people, we’re hoping to see some cards with good influences…
If you’ve applied the techniques in Part I, then you’ve looked at the Woman and Man cards to see how close they are and if they have joiner cards. If they are close to each other, hopefully the joiner cards are clear, but what happens if there are no obvious relationship joiner cards? What about when the woman and man cards are far from each other, but closer to other court cards…?
Signs to look out for that indicate relationships:
When Man and Woman cards land side by side without any joiner cards: normally indicates a separation. It assumes that there isn’t anything holding them together. It’s like the two might be close (as in living under the same roof), but they each stay in their separate corners, avoiding one another. They might be going through the motions for everyone else to see, but otherwise these two might feel like they have nothing in common anymore. There is no joy, no love… There is no glue holding these two together, and we may well be seeing the signs that a separation is in the works.
When the Man and woman have strong joiner cards between them: usually means that the relationship is strong and dynamic. Look to see if you can tell at what stage their union is at by looking at the obligations they have together. Do you see children? Do you see a ring and love, as well as happiness? If you see aggressive joiner cards, there might be a lot of tension. These two might be in an abusive relationship, or they might be at each others’ throats, or simply going through a rough patch. Remember, we are interpreting things as they currently are between the two, this might well change in a few weeks…
When the Woman card is closer to another Court card, but seems to have links to the Man card: a sign that, at the time they are consulting you, the woman might be feeling closer to the Court card vs. the Man card (she might feel closer to someone other than her significant other). Is this the sign of an affair? Not necessarily, but it is certainly a clue that you should look deeper at the cards joining the Court card and the Woman. For all you know, the Court card is simply a good friend and a confidant, and most often than not, everything is kosher. If you suspect an affair, look for signs in the cards around the Court and Woman card.
The Man card is closer to a Court card than the Woman card: same as for the Woman card above, but from a male consultant’s point of view.
When the Man and Woman cards are very far apart and not even influencing each other: usually a sign that the person is unattached.
When the Man or Woman cards have relationship joiner cards with cards of the same sex (Man with a King card/Woman with a Queen card): a firm indication that the person is probably in a same sex relationship.
The above examples are only a few key signs about relationships, and they are by no means exhaustive. These are only clues that you need to look out for…which are there to guide you. There are different techniques that can confirm these hunches for you, which I will cover in Petit Lenormand Love Relationships – Part III.
