How to mix our systems and get the best possible read ....... watch on
I shout it from the rooftops "I AM A CARD TESTER" - What does it mean and are you a tester too?
The Kipper Cards Path of 7 Spread - the perfect spread if you know the outcome you are hoping to achieve but do not know how to get there - Let's Go!
This is not a Kipper Blog..... this is a moan... if you don't like a good old moan then stop reading now!
The 30. Court Official Card turns up in difficult situations, especially behind the Main Character's back, showing injustice and decisions made not falling in your favour. My blog here isn't about injustices caused by querents -. it is READERS I have an issue with.... read on ....
Many readers don't realise they are causing their own injustices within their reads. So many experienced readers are leaving great Cartomancy groups because their eyes cannot take any more crowbarring of positivity into dark cards. Or, flowery blurb added to make the querent feel better. Or awful questions being asked and a different question answered!
Why the beef?
Have you ever wondered how your Kipper reader knows things that are hidden in your closet, safe and sound, where nobody can find them? There is a process that we use with Kipper Cards that takes us from the unknown to the "OMG all my secrets are out" kind of read - I am sharing that with you in this one of a kind course at the Tarot Summer School.
Joining the Kipper Private Eye class is simple, click on the link below and look for my face! The course costs $28 and it will be published for access real real soon!
The Tarot School runs June through August so if you have more time for courses, why not enrol in the Season Pass for all classes!? I am lucky enough to have an affiliate link and receive a little "thank you" for every student who enrols (no matter which course!
If you are unsure - watch my short video :)
We had so much fun with our "pick a card - any card" post that I thought I would treat myself to another!
Again, no waiting for reveals (that sucks - we definitely established that last week!) ... so here we are - PICK A CARD and scroll down to earn your instant wisdom for the day ahead.... will you get good advice? Let us see what the Kipper Cards have in store (you never know with the Kipper Cards whether they will play nice or just be downright mean about your life.... although, whichever way they swing, you need to hear it!).
Are you ready for your message? It is super simple all you have to do is choose a card and as there are only 3 cards to choose from you can't really go wrong (or can you ....!?).
PICK A CARD - 1 - 2 - 3
IT'S DECISION TIME!
Which card were you drawn to and why? Feel free to comment at the bottom of the page why you chose it! Would love to hear your reasoning .... without further rambling ... let's find out what they mean in your day today!
See that was easy - my birthday week (yes I am incapable of having just one day) is turning out to be a hit, loads of pressies, loads of friends well wishes and generally just niceness all around .... my boys even tidied their rooms with no shouting! Whoop Whoop!
More from me?
If you want to receive all my sporadic postings don't forget to subscribe ... I have courses, YouTube competitions and generally just a whole lotta card fun!
And of course ... watch my videos and SUBSCRIBE!
Not my usual post, but I am going for it anyway. You know the "pick a card and it will give you an advice" kind of posts? Well I have a few bones to pick with posts that make me wait to find out what my card actually is. When I see these posts I think "oooooh I would like card 3" then I read the comments and it says......
I will reveal the answer tomorrow - stay tuned!
ARRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHH! I want to know now!!
Why does it bug me?
Some of the reasons I find it annoying (the list is not exhaustive)......
1. I know you are revealing tomorrow because that's what good marketing is
2. I don't wait very patiently
3. I will have forgotten that it was YOUR post by tomorrow (#truth)
4. I will have forgotten there even was a post tomorrow (#theabsolutetruth)
5. I will lay my own damn cards then
So, I'm gonna do my own - Kipper Styleeeeeeeeez
And don't worry - for my memory challenged buddies the reveal is BELOW!!!
What do you prefer to do?
Take a moment and dwell on the cards and then choose the right one?
Choose the same number every time (like my sister!)?
The truth .... it doesn't matter! Whatever you are comfortable with do it - you know why? Card reading is all about setting the right intention, if your intention is "always number 2" then so it is! If you need to take out a crystal and meditate for half an hour first, then so it is! We are all different, we all set intention in different ways, it takes some longer than others, the only important thing is you set the following intention:
Card _____ is the card that will be my reading
.... and so it will be.
So choose it now - do whatever you need to do to be clear which card is YOURS!
Your only course of action after choosing a card is skimming down to the meanings below and finding out what advice the Kipper Cards have for you, on this very rainy day in Munich.
Make sure you spend time on a comment below - do you wait patiently for a reveal? Let me know, I am probably the only person who dislikes it so much :)
SPOILER ALERT - MEANINGS OF EACH CARD COMING NOW!
If Card 1 was your choice then you are in the right place!
Card 2 peeps you have found your reading --- TA DA!
Be nice with your words!
And last but not least .... number 3
Just do it
And now for our Gents .... why did you choose the female main character? Is she somebody who is missing from your life right now? Maybe you are in need of some female company or should just be spending more time observing your partner - I say observing because this card coming up suggests that there is something you should be paying attention to - your partner is trying to tell you something - probably in a way you don't "get" - observe for nuances and see if you can figure it out without her telling you! - Just do it!
So there you go, an instantly gratifying read with no reveals and no waiting until tomorrow.... PHEW! Feel much better now!

Kipper 101 is starting again next week - but is it for you? What has changed and what will you learn?
Anyone who has sat on my Kipper courses (or any courses for that matter) will tell you I tackle cards head on. I have students laying cards on day 1, whether old or new to the system, students are asked to shuffle and deal in an environment that is safe and supported. I teach the Bavarian Kipper Reading Method as described in depth in my book The Card Geek's Guide to Kipper.
With Kipper 101 - I have upped the ante!
On DAY 1 you will be laying a Cross Spread! Not just one card but 5!
So for first timers, we are getting straight into the mechanics of the Kipper read on Day 1 and analysing what positions of cards explain.
Day 3 we jump into Cause & Effect
Cause and Effect cards in Kipper allow the reader to understand exactly what is creating the situation presented to them and how that will have an effect on them personally. It creates a storyline that can clearly and practically be read by noobs and those without much knowledge of card reading!
Day 4 is Theme Readings
How we change our interpretations when given a theme to read in. We all know that when we ask our friends a love question, they will respond with a love answer. It is no different in the cards. If we ask a question on Work or Health (for example) we have to extract the Work or Health meanings from our cards - we will do this in the Cross Spread and identify meanings together.
So how does the course go down?
You join me in a private facebook group where I share one short instructional video per day together with handouts - you are given an exercise to complete and you post your spread in the group with your attempt at interpretation (no matter how keyword or vague it's OK we are learning!) and I comment giving you a hint on the direction to take or offer an alternative that will widen your interpretative "know-how".
You complete in your own timezone and the exercises should be completed between Monday and Sunday (at your own pace within this timescale) - then comes the exam which should be submitted by the following Monday (on this course by the 14th May) to be marked and of course for your certificate of completion!

Does the Days Of Old Kipper Deck read directionally?
So many tongues wag in the Kipper community on whether decks are a directional fit to the Original Kipper Deck, and quite rightly so! The directional read is HUGE and the most popular reading technique amongst the older Bavarian reading community that I have the pleasure to practice with. So ..... lets delve into the Days of Old Kipper by Lynn Boyle and see if it can be used in the Bavarian Kipper Reading Technique (BKRM TM).
All links to buy the deck are in the comments of my video.
