Tarot and the Kipper links

I’ve had some struggles as of late, and they’ve kept me from journaling on a regular schedule. I am always thinking about the cards, and writing about them, so it’s very frustrating for me when I can’t!!! So many ideas, and never enough personal time…..

In my working with the cards this morning, I was once again intrigued to see how the different oracles correspond together. They all are picking up on my energy at that moment, so I shouldn’t be surprised per se, but I’m an enthusiastic card reader and can’t help but appreciate the magic 🙂

In the tarot, I did a Celtic spread. The message was all about my husband’s legal affairs. Over the years, I have adapted the Celtic to include a few extra cards. In the middle, I always have 3 instead of 2 (it’s a case of always wanting more! lol)

In this case, I had:

In this example, I would read the 2 of Cups and the 5 of Swords together, as telling me the Present situation; and the 8 of Swords as what crossed them (in other words, the 8 of Swords is what influences the other cards)

On a regular basis, the 5 of Swords comes up for me as meaning “dispute, arguement, discord”. When the spread is telling me something about the legal, I can substitue the word “dispute” for the 5 of Swords. (It has also shown itself to mean a psychic/shamanic attack – but that’s another story)

The 2 of cups says that there is a meeting taking place, possibly even an agreement coming into Reality, but the 8 of Swords tells me that it’s not because they want to….they’re trapped, and have to come to the table over this.

Later on, I discovered this exact same message being expressed in the Kipper cards.

Great Luck – Meetings – Prison

There is good fortune, good luck around meetings……meetings that are forced! Meetings because they have no other choice!! Another interpretation of #4 Meetings & #29 Prison, is a meeting taking place in a big public building –

2 of Cups and #4 Meetings correlate, and the 8 of Swords and#29 Prison definitely correlate! The cards have been showing a change for quite awhile – but in the last week, they have become ‘in-your- face’, so I’m on alert. I think we’re going to be getting a phone call soon 🙂

I have another example I want to share; this time conerning the playing cards, but it needs to be a separate post.

Read on~

Kipper draw~

I have to say, the cards are definitely consistent in their insistence that things are going to change. I just wish that a ‘daily’ would always be a daily, rather than sometimes projecting out. Having said that though, I’m impressed that they reflect what’s most important, rather than just showing mundane matters all the time…….it varies, and I just have to accept that my Higher Self wants  me to know that I’ll be OK. I’m sure that once this hardship has passed, I will start getting more daily type of activities….

Here I have Pleasing Letter – Busy with Work – Gain/Win/lots of Money.

Just reading singly it shows that there is news, or paperwork that involves some work but the reward for that work is money, and lots of it! This sounds like a settlement to me. The defendant is running out of time.

This could also be a business deal that requires alot of paperwork done, but the payoff is big. Once again, both apply so I’m not sure – either will do, I’m not picky, just impatient!!!!!

Kipper Block of 9 Spread

When reading a Block of 9 spread, you’ll usually pick up a lot of information. I use it often with the Lenormand, but thought I would try it with the Kipper and see what I’d get.

In beginning, we read all 3 horizontal rows, then all 3 vertical rows. Then we read the diagonals and finish off with reading the 4 corners & then the 2nd/4th/6th & 8th cards (which form a diamond).

1st horizontal – :

It shows our worry and stress as to whether funds will be coming soon to the home. I come to that thought because in the Sibilla, the Stanza card is the ‘living room’ and it can refer to news coming, especially of a financial nature, among other meanings. Otherwise it’s just showing the current stress levels around the home.

2nd horizontal-

Unexpected money coming from the ‘financial’ man who’s is at a distance from us…..The Rich Good Lord card comes up for me to refer to my husband’s business partner “D”, or one his lawyers in the states. So, this is either about the phone call we got today that a deal has gone through, and money is coming (which was very unexpected); or it’s about the legal and a surprise settlement.

3rd horizontal-

The Good Dame is either the female defendant in my husband’s court case, or her close female supporter. I read this to mean that she is meeting with their lawyer….talks are in progress.

Next, the verticals:

1st vertical –

I don’t necessarily view the Good Dame as being the same woman that I described in the horizontal row. This very well may be someone else, and since drawing this this morning, I think I might know who she is.

We are still under some very real financial stress – this is where our worries are at the moment. It looks like the cards are saying that I will be receiving unexpected money from the Good Dame. This may be a relative of mine, who graciously helped me in the past. It would truly be unexpected as she was very generous with her help, and I would never ask her for anything more.

2nd vertical-

Again, when I see the Living Room card, (or the Stanza card in the Sibilla) my first thoughts are of news on the way that could be of a financial nature. The Rich Good Lord and the Court Person are most likely describing the lawyers. The Living room also refers to something private. Aha… a private legal financial settlement…settlement out of court.

3rd vertical-

This looks like family at a distance, and I’m seeing them? or there are some kind of meetings/coming together of family at a distance. There is something to do with the family at afar….

Then, we look at the diagonals:

1st diagonal –

Either my husband’s lawyer, or his business partner will be stressed out by meetings of some kind.

Oh, ick! actually the combination of the Worry card and the Rich Good lord is also havie concerns with the bank, or financial problems. Interesting that this is part of the “X” – that’s what we’re dealing with right now!

2nd diagonal – I’m not sure if this should be like writing an “X” and read from the top right, or my natural tendencies when reading is from left to right, which would be from the bottom left on up…. I think I’d better read both and see! lol

From what I’ve researched, combining the Rich Good Lord with the Good Dame can give you the meanings of a wealthy woman, or a woman who will financially support. Again, I bring this up as I have a family member who has financially helped us with the mortgage in the past. I hate to think that that would be needed again! but I make note of it here.

House combined with Rich Good Lord could describe a family business, or in feeling secure in one’s own home (this could be because of the supportive woman, OR it could just be describing the way I am going to feel soon.

(I have also been planning on being self-employed this year – so this may apply to that)

If I were to read from the bottom left, up to the right, I would have this.

The Good Dame+Rich Good Lord can describe a monied older woman, or an entrepeneurial woman. Rich Good Lord+House has some interesting meanings also. It can describe a secure independence, a secure possession, a loan designed to assist construction or the HOME! I’ve got an eery feeling this is still talking about this relative!

I’m hoping that I’m actually the Good Dame in this instance, and that it’s either describing me as an entrepeneur working from home…feeling secure and independent. That is my hope!

Next, we look at the 4 corners:

Worry about our home, or worry around the family…. female family member & meetings with.

And lastly, we look at the 4 points of the diamond:

I like this line: There is news coming soon conerning finances…Unexpected money coming from a distance.. this is connected to Court & the lawyers. SO I would say that there is news coming from the lawyers or court of unexpected money or a surprise settlement!

The middle card shows what the reading is all about –

He represents the banker, the financial trader or someone dealing with alot of money. It’s the bank or finances in general, or wealth & independence. It has the message that financial matters are at the moment favored.. it also can represent ‘security’… I think all of the above applies to me in this reading!

If I remember correctly, the block of 9 spread covers approximately 3 months, maybe a little more.

I hope you can see how useful this spread can be 🙂 I was surprised to see how well it works with the Kipper.

*****update  FEBRUARY 9th: Parts of this reading have amazingly already come true – parts that I thought I had incorrectly interpreted!
The 1st and 3rd vertical rows describe unexpected financial help from a woman, and meetings with family at a distance.
My cousin called me later that week and offered to help us with our mortgage. I was absolutely shocked, as I never would have asked her.
The 2nd diagonal, read in either direction, also pointed out to a woman helping us with the house/or helping the family.
The 4 corners in summary also pointed to this occurrence!

I was flabbergasted at how correct, so far, this Kipper Block of 9 has been!

It gives me great hope that the rest is also going to materialize soon!
2nd update (Feb 11): another row in this reading is coming to pass – amazing! The 2nd horizontal row of
we received a message that the financial trader/friend/partner is sending some funds into the business account. It’s not the “big deal” yet, but it is an unexpected cushion that will help immensely.
I can’t get over who well the Kipper cards work with the Block of 9 spread!

Kipper draw- A Journey, Gain/Win/lots of money/Rich Good Lord


This draw was done at the same time as a lenormand draw, featured on my sister blog “The Lenormand Oracle” that reflected the same message.

I don’t know if anyone else out there in cyberspace does a series of draws with different systems, but I’ve found it fascinating to see how all the different decks will present a Theme for the day….different little pieces of the puzzle!

I kept staring at A Journey and Lots of Money when I finally realized that it represented a money transfer! lol Money literally taking a journey 🙂 facilitated by the Rich Good Lord.

This is a gent in another country, who we’ve been waiting for his funds to clear. They finally have. We found out that money is to be transferred on Monday.

I’m just tickled pink to see that a string of dailies are popping off the page and happening quickly; sometimes they take much longer than I would like.

Mystical Kipper


Well, this is pretty self explanatory…especially since we are neck deep in legal issues. Something good is about to happen around this quagmire!

I am so ready to see this chapter close…. the combination of the first two (23-25) has the meaning of
“a judicial success”.

The second two (25-17) represents “an honor – about which one is much pleased.”

Something good is in the works…the cards have been right way too much for me to doubt them now.


23 Court9 A Change15 Love and Friendship

The day in court came and went, with the Cult lady appearing with a new lawyer. She was supposedly demure and polite (ha!) Her lawyer ate plenty of humble pie, and managed to keep his client out of jail for contempt….for the moment. The Judge ordered her to appear for a debtor’s exam that she avoided for a year; something that she is desperate not to face. The meeting is for next week.

Every single reading or draw that I have done that relates to this drama, continuously shows an agreement being made.

Here we have Court (or legal situation) and a Change, leading to Love and Friendship. Now we will never be friends! lol but this card shows up a lot for me to denote agreements being made. These cards, once again seem to infer that there will be a change in stance over this legal dispute and that something will be hammered out.

When it comes to this situation, my “daily” draws have turned into theme draws or showing me what I most need to know, rather than what’s going to happen on that day. My Higher Self is trying to reassure me, I think!

(This used to happen before hubby and I came together as a couple – they would consistently show me that we would come together, even though the opposite looked more likely; so I know better than to doubt the cards!)

It’s staying patient and trusting that’s the hard part.

Kipper and Gypsy draws on my Birthday

It has been a bit of a stressful time here in my household. One child leaving for college, and the other unable to go at the last moment. I have had to back away from blogging to deal with everything, sadly.

Saturday, was my 50th birthday…where the heck has all the time gone??? lol I just turned 40 in my head! oh well. It is my hope and my intent that this is the year of some real positive life changes.

On my birthday, I drew these Kipper cards:





The first one, shows a letter/email communication coming from someone who isn’t trustworthy.

The second one shows a man from my past communicating with me.

Ironically, my ex-husband has been showing up as a Thief in the Kipper, and as Nemico in the Sibilla, which is not the way I would have portrayed him consciously–they began showing up just before it became known that he hadn’t lived up to our divorce agreement concerning life insurance. I was shocked, and had to re-evaluate how I perceived him.

We have not been on talking terms since June, when he stood up his youngest daughter on her graduation day!

I found it hard to believe that I would be hearing from him, but sure enough, I received an e-birthday card in my emails later that day. We’ve known each other since high school, alot of water under the bridge:) Strange, but I was kind of touched to receive that card, even though he’s been a pain recently….

Kipper: Collect one’s thoughts – Rich Good Lord – A Small Child


I really like it when a daily is just that, a daily.

When I saw the Rich Good Lord, I immediately thought of our financial trader friend. I commented to my husband that “D” is contemplating what he’s going to do with the money that’s coming in. There is an offer that he’s going to put forth to you.

Lo and behold! he called within a half hour of doing the cards. He is on the verge of receiving monies from quite a few deals, and called to share his thoughts with us. He gave us an mls# to a house he wants to procure for us when we transfer out West. When I saw it, I was grinning pretty widely.

Everything is coming full circle now. I can almost see why we have gone through this difficult time, getting rid of many things from the past. Symbolically, they don’t fit the new life we are going to lead very soon. After perusing the photos of this property, I felt alot better about the things I let go….(Everything except my piano, that is…)

Life really is full of surprises.

Kipperkarten: Court+Expectation+Unexpected Money


Court is self-explanatory 🙂 Court+Expectation describes us waiting for a decision from the judge tomorrow.

Ending in Unxpected Money! I certainly hope this means that there is a decision made that brings money sooner than we have expected 🙂

Expectation + Unexpected Money though, could have the meaning of  money coming in the period of 3 months! God I hope not! This is someone else’s interpretation of this combo, but I would argue that if you have to wait 3 months then it is no longer unexpected money!!!!!

So hopefully my first thoughts are the correct one on this draw. I ought to be able to update this one quickly 🙂

Kipper: Collect One’s Own Thoughts-Principle Man-Short Illness


The middle card represents the Principle Male. Like the Lover in the Gypsy cards, he represents my mate. I drew these and thought, “oh great”! not such a hot day! lol

It told me that  he might be withdrawn, caught up in his own world of thoughts and worries. That didnt’ bode well.

Two other issues are definitely reflected in this draw around him though. His crown and most of the filling material fell out too! just like me! He woke up this morning, totally fixated on it, and trying to figure a way to get into the dentist. Unfortunately, the dentist is closed today so he will be thinking about that tooth all weekend!

The other thing is that he got very worked up this morning worrying over his daughter who lives in BC. She’s had some very strange health problems, such as her hip dislocating weekly! He was certain, from some of his card readings that something else was going on with her, or about to be; and started stressing (obsessing) over that-

So these cards fit the bill! I can tell it’s going to be a weird Friday!
