General Bear Meaning

There are several interpretations the Bear card can take for your seeker (the person getting the reading). The Bear can either be an authority figure, your seeker’s physical fitness or even their personal finances. The meaning of Bear is mostly dependant on your seeker’s question or cards it is combined with but don’t worry you will know the right definition to use when you see it!

It is typical for Bear to be a female authority figure. However, I do not really like this interpretation because I think of males as being Bears. None the less, there has been the odd time I have used this meaning with success so possibilities shouldn’t be written off. In general, I read the Bear to represent any authority figures, not just females. If your seeker has a male boss, they will appear as a Bear.

Sometimes personal finances will manifest as the Bear. If your seeker is in business, you can take Bear to be the money in their current account and Fish to symbolize money in their business bank account. 

Some readers read the Bear as representing lifestyle. If your seeker is making changes to their health and fitness and has recently signed up for a gym membership, the Bear will appear. This card can also serve as a warning for them to take better care of their health.

As with all Lenormand cards, Bear has a literal interpretation which is that of a real life bear. In addition to this, you can also read the card as signaling places where bears are common. As a matter of fact, I once saw the Bear as representing Canada when a client of mine emigrated there.

Specific Bear Meanings

Love Meaning: I have found that Bear can mark the interference of family members in a seeker’s relationship. 

Career Meaning: Bear can symbolize your seeker’s boss and the impact they have on the seeker’s life.

Business Meaning: Bear (and what is combined with it) can show how your client acts as an authority figure in their business. Other times, Bear will be the effect the business has on your seeker’s personal finances. 

Positive: For positive readings, Bear will represent authority figures who are a favorable influence on the seeker.

Negative: For negative readings, Bear will represent authority figures who are a bad influence on the seeker.
