Though the Nature Speaks Lenormand Oracle Guidebook can be used with any deck of Lenormand Cards, it was specifically designed for the newly re-imagined Lenormand Oracle Deck titled "Nature Speaks." The inspiration behind this "re-imagining" was to spark your own intuition by using striking photographs for each card paired with short reflections. Additionally, keywords featuring both "light" and "shadow" aspects are included for each card along with questions to aid your own meditation. Hopefully you'll find this Guidebook a helpful and inspiring resource as you continue along the path of spiritual awakening and self-discovery. Please note that this guidebook does not come with a deck of Lenormand cards. To order the new companion deck please visit www.sixcupspublishing.com.
