Curious as to what it means when you receive a Lenormand card in their own House of a Grand Tableau? Is there any special significance to getting a Lenormand card in its own spread position? If you have ever wondered these things you’re in luck because today I am going to answer these questions!
Below, I am going to give you three ways of interpreting what a Lenormand card means when it lands in its own Grand Tableau House (for example, a Heart card in The House of Heart). My favourite is number three BUT I like to give my audience a variety of options so that they can pick the way which works for them, and I suggest you do the same.
I also recommend that once you find the method which calls you, try to stick to it in all of your readings even if you do not always like the interpretation you get. Sticking to one method of these three methods will limit your confusion and prevent you from being put on the spot.
With all of that being said, here is what means when you receive a Lenormand card in its own Grand Tableau House:
Nothing of Significance
Some diviners do say that receiving a card in its own House means that nothing of significance is going to happen in that area of your life. For example, if the Coffin card appears in The House of Coffin, this means that there will be no slow endings, serious illnesses or deaths in your near future.
In these cases, the reason why the card appears in its own House, is because it is ‘resting’ there; the card is just hanging out in its own position due to the fact that it has nothing to say in other areas of the spread.
Information About A Date
There will be times when the positions of a Grand Tableau spread represent a time frame. If the Houses represent a time of year or date, then the card in that House symbolizes something which is going to happen during that time of year.
I am rather fond of this interpretation for interpreting a card in its own House because it makes sense, especially with some Houses. Here are some examples with interpreting a Lenormand card in its own house using timing:
The Rider card in The House of Rider: Can predict that there will be a message for you in around one months time.
The Stork card in The House of Stork: Can predict a pregnancy during the change of seasons.
The Lily card in The House of Lily: Can predict peace during the Winter time.
Amplifies the Card Meaning
This is my favourite way to interpret a Lenormand card in its own Grand Tableau House. Personally, when a card lands in its own House, I take this to mean that you are going to receive lots of the things which the card discusses.
If you’re interpreting a card in its own House as symbolizing that card amplified, then the meaning you assign to that card matters. Obviously, some cards have two meanings so the one you use the most is how you will interpret that House.
For example, if the Book card appears in The Book House, I would take this to mean that you are going to have a lot of secrets during this time. Alternatively, the Book card in the House of Book can mean that you’re going to be learning many new things. How you interpret it, depends on how you interpret the Book.
Sometimes, however, you may find that interpreting what a card means in its own House is difficult, especially if you’re very close to the situation. If this sounds like you, you may want to check out my Quick Grand Tableau Reference on this website!
