Trying to read a Lenormand Grand Tableau but do not know what the houses mean? Are all of the spread positions in this large layout overwhelming you? If so, don’t worry! I am going to explain the meanings of all of the houses in the Lenormand Grand Tableau spread and list them in detail.
In Lenormand, the most advanced (and fun) type of reading you can perform, is a Lenormand Grand Tableau spread. The Grand Tableau involves using all 36 cards in a rectangle spread to read you or your client's fortune on a verity of areas such as love, career, friendships, and more!
If you’re new to reading Lenormand cards, you may think that it is going to be challenging to remember what all 36 of the Lenormand houses mean, but this is not the case. Each house (or spread position) corresponds to each card. Position one has the same meaning as card number one, The Rider. Position two represents the same things as card two, The Clover and so on.
Therefore, the card which falls in House One - The House of Rider - symbolizes any news or messages which you or your seeker will receive.
Below, I am going to list the Grand Tableau House/Position meanings in more detail, so that you can refer back to this list for guidance as needed. And, if you would like to know what it means when each card appears in a House, be sure to check out the Quick Grand Tableau Reference on this website.
