I've been a Lenormand student for some time now, and absolutely love studying traditional card reading. You don't learn this kind of reading style by living in a vacuum - every student has a teacher (or two or three). I've learned principally from Andy Boroveshengra, a traditional reader living in England, and highly recommend his eBook "36 Cards" (available via Amazon). This afternoon I noticed his post about "Tips for Fortune Tellers" that I wanted to share here (with his permission):
"Three Tips for Fortune-Tellers.
ONE - never sell your soul, as the Oracle said: know thyself.
TWO - live: you cannot tell fortunes from an ivory tower; your instincts are honed by lean times, challenges and hardship.
THREE - less is more: cultivate a couple of methods, as a jack-of-all-trades is master-of-none."
Good advice, all around, and the second tip, in particular, is very fitting per my post earlier today (accessible by clicking here) about how life experience helps become a better predictive reader.
