That Fox card, it seems to evade and confuse many who study the Lenormand Card Reading System and my answer is – Shouldn’t it?
The Fox is, if it is doing its job correctly, exactly suppose to evade and confuse those who try to watch it, so why not those who study Lenormand? I agree it might be a bit of a frustration at first but I have to appreciate someone who does there job well !
Remember, I keep to a rather “traditional” way of reading Lenormand and a primary source of information for me is “Lenormand Thirty Six Cards” by Andy Boroveshengra. I do not read the Fox as my primary Work card, this I reserve for #32 Moon – getting that out of the way quickly.
Basic Keywords associated with the Fox are deceit, trickery, fraud and in my mind the essence of the card, Wrongness. This is the red flag (pun intended to our red fox above) that something is wrong. If you read using directions as I do, then what the nose of the Fox is pointing to is what is wrong. In my case using the card above that would be the card directly to the left.
Now the Fox does what it does to survive. Many people are trying to put a positive spin on #14 and will go to survivor to do that – I have not seen that to be the case in my practice. This card is in the Suit of Clubs, that tells us that it brings the unpleasant with it and I always consider the Suits that I am reading as a factor to be worked with.
The Fox as I have found does its work in the business settings quite well, remember he is trying to survive and what place is tougher then business? #14 try’s to secure that which it needs, food, shelter and in this day money to obtain anything it might need.
I do give a nod to Rana George here. When she said, and I paraphrase here, that her family yells “Sneaky Sneaky” when they see this card, I agree. This card does try to skulk around and mislead you as to who has done the deed.
The Fox as a descriptor of a person – this I always find interesting. Streetwise is normally something this tells me, they know the lay of the land that they reside in. It can be a work or business rival – again they know the lay of that type of land. It can be a man or woman, you will note I have used it, versus he or she when speaking of this card. In any event I don’t find the person that this card describes to be trustworthy, I watch them closely. When they do things, again its to survive, they are not the spiteful vindicative card of our Lenormand family – that I reserve for the #7 the Snake/Serpent.
#14 is also the card for Redheads, for the obvious reason of the Red Fox being on the card.
So the study of Lenormand brings many to quickly compare this card to #7 the Snake/Serpent = perhaps that should be the next card I discuss?
Until my next blog, read the cards well and read them honestly!
