In Lenormand, it's normal to classify cards as positive, negative and neutral.
This classification helps to quickly answer yes/no spreads and to give an overall idea of the answer to an open question spread.
However, despite this classification, it's still only a general grouping, not an absolute. Lenormand positive, negative and neutral cards can all change depending on surrounding cards.
For example, if a negative card, such as the Coffin, is surrounded by positive cards, the meaning might change from an ending to a transformation. The same goes for a positive card surrounded by many negative cards.
Always keep in mind the question and surrounding cards in your Lenormand readings.
