Gilded Reverie Lenormand Review & Guide

This is my review for a tarot deck I recently found and purchased: Gilded Reverie Lenormand: Expanded Edition BY Ciro Marchetti.

The Gilded Reverie Lenormand (GRl) is the most popular modern method of using the Lenormand for divination and was created by one of its most ardent proponents. It is also one of the most expandable, with the GRl creator stating that each card has multiple levels of meaning.

A year after its release, Gilded Reverie has already made a name as one of the hottest releases in the modern Lenormand. It’s even been chosen as one of the few must-have Lenormand editions for this year’s Lenormand Expo in Paris.

Gilded Reverie Lenormand Meanings:

The Gilded Reverie Lenormand is a magical reading method for those who are familiar with the traditional Lenormand and those with little experience with the traditional meanings of Tarot Cards. It was designed for those who prefer a self-guided, intuitive approach to gain insight into their future.

This expanded edition is an in-depth look at the meanings of all seventy cards, with reading tips and optional translations for the French, German, and Dutch versions. You can also find it on Amazon.
