The Key Lenormand Card Meaning and Interpretation

When we see the Key in our Lenormand readings, we are coming across something that will open up new pathways for us. That means that what was perhaps an obstacle for you in the past is now dissolving. This new pathway can be interpreted in several ways - sometimes it can be the removal of a physical obstacle, or it can come in the form of a new way of thinking that lets you open your eyes and your heart to new possibilities and perspectives - a revelation of some sort that gives you a new solution.

Other times, the Key can also mean freedom from past restrictions; imagine being locked up in a cell where, but finally having the key to get out. Whether real or psychological, the key can represent freedom from some kind of confinement.

Finally, the Key can mean achievement, for it gives us access to what we need in order to make it through to the other side, and achieve our goals.

Questions to Ask with the Key

  • What am I being freed from?
  • What am I missing to achieve my goals?
  • How can I open up closed doors?
  • What would I like to achieve?
