The Snake Lenormand Card Meaning and Interpretation

As one of humanity’s most ancient symbols, seeing the Snake in your Lenormand reading can reflect many aspects and faces of this animal. Desire and craving, or ambition is one of these facets, especially a desire of the sort that very strong, almost consuming. Some of these desires can be harmless, and others, when uncontrolled, can lead to a kind of addiction. There is also the sense that the kind of desire that is represented by the snake is so strong, that incredible determination comes alongside it - sometimes making for an almost single-minded focus.

Another facet of the snake can involve deception - to be specific, the kind of deception that is calculating and self serving, almost manipulative.

Another interpretation of the Snake card in Lenormand that is rarely used, but just as important, is its wisdom and knowledge. While in more traditional interpretations, such as the ones above, it has been plastered with morality, there is a more pure reading of the snake that has none of those value judgements. In other cultures, their intelligence is revered, and sacred, and even in western interpretations, we must remember that it was the snake that brought us truth - though, forbidden truth.
