Keywords: Significance, that which is important, what needs paid attention to, that which is urgent, what needs opened up, what needs locked away, keys.
General Key Meaning
Key is one of the most obscure cards in Lenormand, and many readers find it hard to interpret. Ironically, it is one of only a select few cards to have just a couple of possible meanings, but this fact doesn’t seem to make interpreting it any easier.
Key highlights what is important and needs your attention. For example, if you’re reading a Grand Tableau, the House which Key falls into will be a place in your life which you have to deal with urgently. Key is a direct message from your spirits that there is either an issue or an opportunity which you must grab now.
In general, the Key card will represent something which will become significant in your life. For example, a significant career change or love affair.
In some cases, Key can be similar to The Book in that it can highlight secrets. However, Key wants you to take action on what you know. Getting this card can mean that you either need to keep what you’re hiding to yourself (lock away) or share with others (open up). The context and feel of the reading will give more clues to what action you should take.
Like all cards, Key can be literal, and in some rare cases, it can be a real key. I once read at a charity event and the woman getting the reading had lost her key outside of her house. The Lenormand predicted it was in the garden (House - Key - Garden).
