The Marie Lenormand Christmas Oracle
Compiled by Natalia Plakhina and Sofya Kuznetsova
Translated from Russian by Andriy Kostenko
And, filled up of celebration,
Raptured with a great mystery,
I know for sure it is not by chance
That the prophetic words came true.
Alexander Blok, 1901.
Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin, authors of the book, Learning Lenormand (Katz, Marcus; Goodwin, Tali. Learning Lenormand: Traditional Fortune Telling for Modern Life.Woodbury, MN: Llewellyn Publications, 2013.), tarotologists, historians and researchers of the Tarot, founding chiefs of the world`s largest tarotology organization of Tarot Professionals, compare the oracle of Mademoiselle Lenormand with a verirometer from the fantastic trilogy of Philip Pullman`s Dark Beginnings — a mysterious device on the dial of which were housed thirty-six symbols used for divination.
Created in the 17th century, the veritometer was able to reveal to the initiated in the hidden meaning of its signs any mystery of being. The oracle of Mademoiselle Lenormand is not fantastic, but quite real, yet it also contains thirty-six graphic symbols that reveal to the person who has learned to read them the whole world and provide them with another point of view of the circumstances of their own life as well as lives of other people.
A thirty-six-card deck, later named The Marie Lenormand Oracle, was created in Nuremberg (Germany) by Johann Kaspar Hechtel (1771–1799) and first published in 1800 under the title The Game of Hope (Das Spiel der Hofnung). Each card had its own drawing, and the cards were to be laid out with a 6 x 6 square, creating a playing field on which the chips moved according to the numbers that generated by two dice. Later, in the middle of the 19th century, some card-printers came up with the idea to publish the same cards as in The Game of Hope, as “the Mademoiselle Lenormand fortune telling deck.” There came many variations of this deck — with or without divinatory inscriptions and miniature images of playing cards — and they all very successfully exploited the fame of the recently deceased “French Sibyl,” as the Paris fortune teller Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand (1772–1843) was called.
Over time, this deck came to be called The Small Lenormand (Le Petit Lenormand in French) so that it would not be confused with The Grand Deck of Mademoiselle Lenormand (Le Grand Jeu de Mlle Lenormand), also attributed to the French Sibyl for the sake of giving it more “authority.” While there are 36 cards in The Small Lenormand, The Grand Deck has 54.
Versions of The Small Lenormand continue to appear in our time in different countries. Our own creation, which we called The Marie Lenormand Christmas Oracle, is based on Christmas greeting cards from the late 19th and early 20th centuries that still contain a bright celebratory mood. Whether this deck becomes your working tool or just a nice decoration for your collection is up to you. In any case, we hope that it will amuse you and create a festive and magical atmosphere in your home and in your soul.
