        I’m brazilian student and praticioner of lenormand. I’m starting in my website (www.cih.org.br) a section of lenormand cards. I would like to invite you to be a writer in this section. We can also translate (with credits, of course) your website content to help publicize the same, and put your link in our links section.

          I wish I knew more Portuguese..! Thank you for the invite, Frater Goya. It is something to consider sometime in the future when I have more time available. I think the New Year should bring new opportunities and we can revisit then.

          Best of luck on your website, I took a look around and you cover interesting subjects that do go hand in hand with what I plan to cover here.

          Feliz Navidad y prospero año (hopefully my Spanish is better than my Portuguese).

    I wanted to write you a little bit of note so as to say thank you for the breathtaking tactics you have shared on Lenormand. It was really generous of you to convey this information. Some people would have sold this as an ebook to make a profit on it. You could possibly have done it if you desired. The basics you give are a fantastic way to understand that other individuals have a similar passion for Lenormand just like my own. I know there are many more pleasurable occasions up for individuals that read your blog.

    • Stephen says:

    thankyou, and best regards from Freya.

    • Stephen says:

      Most books are in French or German. There aren’t any I’d recommend in English yet, although andybc is supposed to be releasing one soon. I haven’t read it though. I’m working on a book, but I don’t know when it’ll be ready for publication. Right now, the best way to learn Lenormand in English is from websites and forums.
