Lenormand, card meanings, and a sample Grand Tableau reading.
Mlle Lenormand rose from humble beginnings in 19th century France to become the most prominent fortune teller in Europe. Her clients included Napoleon, about whom she made bold and astonishingly accurate predictions. Her card-reading methods are still popular today.
