Everyone starts out as a Lenormand beginner.
We all start at the same place…and many of us make the same mistakes when learning Lenormand.
And one of the biggest – and most common – mistakes lies with one simple Lenormand card: the Ring.
How is the Ring card one of the biggest Lenormand mistakes?
When reading Lenormand spreads, many beginners limit the Ring to only one meaning: relationships, particularly love relationships.
With how important relationships are to us, it’s no wonder that one of the biggest beginner Lenormand mistakes involves misinterpreting the Ring card.
Relationship readings are one of the biggest areas people ask me about. We always want our relationships to go smoothly and joyfully. But sometimes they don’t…or we aren’t sure if someone we just met is worth investing our time and energy in…
But just because a love relationship is one of the meanings for the Ring card, it doesn’t mean that every time it appears in a spread, it’s referring to a romantic relationship.
It could just as easily be referring to a repeating pattern, cycles, a business agreement, a contract, or yes, even an actual ring.
This is especially true for daily spreads.
You know that relationships don’t end every day, so if the Ring card appears with the Coffin or Scythe in your daily spread, it doesn’t mean your relationship is about to end. And if you are not in a relationship, you really shouldn’t assume that the cards are predicting the end of your romantic relationship.
Trust me, I know it’s how you want to read the cards. It’s a mistake I see time and time again. It might actually be the mistake I see people make most often when it comes to card meanings.
But just because the Ring can refer to a romantic relationship, it doesn’t mean it always does.
So how do you know what the Lenormand Ring card means?
If you’re doing a Grand Tableau, look at the surrounding cards. Is the Ring between the Man and the Woman? Is the Ring surrounded by cards that might be related to business or finances? Is the Ring describing health issues or your housing situation?
If you’re doing a daily spread, go with the simplest meaning possible. If you aren’t in a relationship, don’t get frustrated if you think the cards are predicting your relationship will end when you aren’t in one. Keep it simple. In a daily spread, the Ring is much more likely to represent a piece of jewelry or doing something repeatedly.
If you’re doing a 3- or 5-card spread, focus on the question you asked. Go with the meaning that matches your question. For example, if your question is connected to finding a job, the Ring probably doesn’t have anything to do with your love life.
I hope you enjoyed reading this article on beginner mistakes with the Lenormand Ring card as much as I enjoyed writing it.
All the best in your Lenormand studies!
