Traditional tarot decks consist of 78 cards that are divided into 5 suits: 4 elemental suits (earth/Pentacles, air/Swords, fire/Wands, and water/Cups), as well as a trump suit called the Major Arcana. This structure is not evident in the Lenormand deck, which consists of 36 numbered cards. While there are playing card images on many Lenormand decks, the suits are not taken much into account other than Aces are often good, and clubs are usually not so good. The court card inserts are sometimes used to describe people.
Tarot tends to teach that “there are no good or bad cards; it’s all in how it applies to the situation.” As for Lenormand cards…well….there are cards which are inherently more detracting than others. Some are “good,” some are “bad” and some are “neutral.” (divinewhispers.net)
The so-called Lenormand Tarot deck by Lo Scarabeo it’s a traditional 78 card Tarot deck taking the advantage of the Mlle Lenormand name and in the manner of the so-called Art Deco deck. The deck has pleasant scenes of daily life and experience with a country French look.
