Sylvie Steinbach published in 2007 the first English literature exclusively centered on the Lenormand Oracle (the 36 Lenormand deck called 'le petit jeu' in French). "The Secrets Of The Lenormand Oracle" introduced her innovative approach to reading the cards called the 'No Layout' system.

Her presence on the web and her free teachings on Aecletic Tarot and Lenormandnz forum created a lot of controversy since the traditional way to reading the deck was layout based and mainly relying on a large spread called "le Grand Tableau".

However for many Lenormand devotees, her approach to the oracle added a new swing to its history and started a resurgence of interest around the cards in the Anglo-Saxon countries that knew little about this oracle while creating excitement in Western Europe. More decks and books got published and today, anyone wanting to learn the Lenormand cards will find an array of layouts, methods and decks to play with...

"The secrets of the Lenormand Oracle" became its own language in the Lenormand community when it was nicknamed the SLO (pronounced 'slow') and a No Layout, a NLO (pronounced "nolo") by students and followers.

Sylvie Steinbach called her method the "No Layout" because the reader does not follow a preset map of positions when choosing the cards out of the deck; the Celtic Cross (tarot) or the Grand Tableau (traditional Lenormand) follow a specific layout as seen on table clothes for novice readers to practice the positions' influence. 

Sylvie introduced the concept of "keycard", related to the concept of "charging" a specific card with a name, concept or thing, to activate the oracle and enhance its accuracy. This process was unknown in traditional Lenormand until the manual was published.

Sylvie Steinbach demonstrated over the years, online and in her live teachings worldwide, that her Lenormand comprehension and skills are unmatched when it comes to show how the cards speak to the reader. Many of her students have become Lenormand professionals while a few stepped up as new leaders in the Lenormand literature. 

"Dear Sylvie, I finished all the threads and completed all the exercises... It was awesome, a great experience, I totally enjoyed it, and learned a lot, thank you so much... Your book is a wonderful treat! I have it with me all the time even though I already know what is written inside... It was easy, learning your system since I was already swaying away from the classical one. You are a great teacher and it was really an honor :D Warm wishes". Rana George's personal email tribute - April 2009.

Released in December 2018, "The Secrets of the Belline Oracle" is the first introduction in English on the most revered oracle in Europe; the Belline oracle is finally here in the United-States and Anglo-Saxon countries! With the blessings of the Belline family, Sylvie Steinbach shares her professional knowledge on those mysterious and very symbolic 53 French cards.

Originally crafted as a personal deck in 1840s in France by professional Seer, Mage Edmond, the oracle was brought to the masses by another notorious psychic named Belline who came to fame in the 1960s. Sylvie Steinbach purchased her first Belline in the 1980s, and brought it to the United States years later. 

With the Secrets of the Belline Oracle, Sylvie Steinbach shares her insights onto the original meanings attributed by Edmond and Belline, before expanding onto modern card readings, sharing different layouts to answer any question from relationships and careers to healing, past life and mediumship. 

Sylvie Steinbach's book contains illustrations on the 53 cards and on her practical layouts to ease the beginner in how to interpret them. The Belline Oracle has found yet again its new embassador as the Lenormand did when Sylvie Steinbach first published her Lenormand best-seller. If you are into the esoteric arts, the Belline oracle will fascinate you by its symbolism and Marseille-style cards

The Secrets of the Belline Oracle is available on Amazon and soon, the bookdepository and other fine retailers. You can sign in for free to participate to our multi-media course, introduction to the Belline Oracle hosted in our Esoteric Academia. We offer courses on the oracle now!

Sylvie Steinbach released in February 2013 an original Lenormand deck, the STS Lenormand Oracle, specifically designed for psychics and clairvoyants to trigger insights and promote spiritual healing. Each card illustrates a predominant Lenormand symbol, a discreet corresponding playing card reference, and soothing artwork to facilitate the oracle's message. 

Two versions are available, the original edition in gorgeous colors and its counterpart, the Black & White edition as an embodiment of the 1930's. A masters set combining both versions is also offered for those experimental readers who would use two decks at once or need several people cards in multiple combination layouts. We have Deluxe versions with gold or silver gilted edges to please the most discriminated collector.

The STS letters set on the deck's back comes from the initials of the author and the idea of the T used to symbolize the Tree of Life with two Serpents (S) facing each other; this is an ancient depiction of the Garden of Eden, or Mu, on which the serpents of knowledge and wisdom are wrapped around.
