Are you 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 Lenormand Grand Tableau house meanings 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.
The House of Rider Meaning: The first on our list of Grand Tableau house meanings, is the Rider house. In The House of Rider, you will find information about news, messages, and visitors to your home. Usually, the House of Rider will speak of things you’re told, not written letters as there are other houses in the Grand Tableau for that, but not always.
The House of Clover Meaning: The House of Clover will predict where your luck, fortunes, and wins lie. The House of Clover will represent what is going to happen with regards to your favorable fate.
The House of Ship Meaning: In The Grand Tableau, you can find information about travel, journeys, adventures, and movement all in the third house, The House of Ship.
