Co-authored by Justin Saw and Eugene Leong, the Hybrid Tarot (self-published in March 2021) is a cartomancy deck that blends Lenormand symbols and Oracle card reading with the practice of Tarot.
The Hybrid Tarot course curriculum includes the following:
- Introduction to Tarot: Working with Major Arcana and Court cards
- Fundamentals of the Lenormand divination system: Significators, Topic cards, Houses, reading in pairs, and the Grand Tableau spread
- How to do an oracle card reading
- When to use the Oracle vs. Tarot vs. Lenormand in a reading
- How to blend the Oracle, Tarot, and Lenormand in a reading
This course is suitable for beginners with no prior reading experience and there are no prerequisites to taking the course.
This course would also be enriching for experienced readers who wish to learn a new system and/or style of reading.
You will be working intensively with the Hybrid Tarot in this two-day workshop, so you must bring your deck along with you to the sessions. You are also encouraged to bring along other oracle decks, for example, the Ancient Egyptian Divination & Alchemy Cards by Elisabeth Jensen, which can also be purchased on-site at The Blue Lotus.
The course exchange also includes a deck of Hybrid Tarot cards developed by Justin Saw and Eugene Leong and a Certificate of Participation upon completion.
About the Hybrid Tarot
The Hybrid Tarot is a 43-card deck that is themed on combining the Tarot and Lenormand systems in a cohesive fashion.
The deck is further brought to life with each card dedicated to a deity, ascended master, angel, and/or elemental guardian, whose story inspires the illustrations.
The principal design concept of this deck is giving both the symbols of Tarot and Lenormand equal emphasis in the card’s overall look, feel, and narrative.
The Lenormand has 36 standard cards and recent authors provide 2 LGBTQ cards and up to 4 additional meaning cards. These 42 Lenormand symbols are placed on the Tarot’s Major Arcana and Court cards. There is also a bonus card in the deck and Easter egg references to Astrology. There is also a 60-page booklet filled with oracle messages, combining spreads from different systems in a reading and some articles that would help you better appreciate the theme of this deck.
