Kipper cards mostly are focused on people for its symbolism, where as Lenormand has objects and only the significator cards feature people.
Most kipper decks and books are still currently in German but there are now better resources in English.
I had a great time as guest speaker at the LTSG, which we have been assured is the biggest tarot meet up in London!
This post has a free exercise from that meetup at the end of this blog.
I don’t have time for that much theory without the practice to really understand how things fit together so I made sure that I gave the members a meetup a tarot work out.
(Deck is a Morgan Greer)
As I was walking (literally in many cases) the members through the exercises I realized how much miss teaching. We had a mixed group from novice to advanced, and I took joy from seeing that even the seasoned professionals managed to get something from the session.
I am thankful to all the members you attended for making the event such fun!
So today as I look back and write the lessons learnt, I am going to leave you with one exercise that isn’t just for tarot readers, since this is energy work it can be done by healers, mediums, psychics and such like.
Inspired by Rachel Pollack, when I first read ‘Seventy eight degrees of wisdom’ it made me look at the cards differently, brought them to life by stepping into the card, I have since expanded this by investigating work by Judy Hall which makes the work with the tarot more physical. You can use tarot to combine with therapies such as family constellation and experiential astrology, by making the tarot an experience.
So this exercise is simply a chance to play, to feel the card, experience it.
I invite you all to try this exercise, and let me know what card you ‘became’, or share this with someone who might enjoy this.
“This family of eclipses is concerned with the endings or separations. Thus when it affects a chart individuals will find themselves dealing with a parting…..”
From Predictive Astrology, The eagle and the lark by Bernadette Brady
This reminds me of the Death card in the tarot, an ending that might be important but isn’t easy, but in doing so, we are able to create space for new opportunities…but death, even metaphorically is hard for us and it requires us to let go, and go through a grieving process. Pisces recognizes we are all ONE, and therefore, we never ever really die, so this might help us in this process.
This is a great eclipse for healers, mediums, psychics, and spiritual people in general, Chiron the wounded healer is involved in this eclipse, and it’s also a south node eclipse, so the theme is about healing the past.
If you are a holistic or occultpreneur, use this energy to tune in and find out what your paths is, and what do you need to heal to move forward in life and your business. You might find that others coming to you in the next few months are seeking the same answers, suffering the loss of something that creates a void, this needs to be turned into a space for the new opportunities to be welcomed in.
So if you’re looking for a ritual, I would suggest that you set an intention to heal or release any issues that blocking your spiritual development, ask where you need to be going, what is your direction.

Hot or cold?

Ohh I think I want one of those Gingerbread lattes thingies…Ohhh actually that new Salted Carmel cappuccino sounds fab, oh no, that spiced pumpkin latte looks special!
Ok, Salted caramel cappuccino it is
What size do I want? hmmm
Do I want cream on top? YES
Think about the last time you went to coffee chain, the list of options is huge, and the list of questions we are asked are endless. We want a coffee, but it’s no longer a question of black or white, it’s a complicated process that often leaves you breathless and in a great need of caffeine.
Working with a tarotpreneur today on their business I was reminded of a big mistake many readers make is their choice of products that they offer, the readings services often only make sense to other readers or people who have an interest in tarot (we all know that fellow tarot readers can often make the worst clients). Keep in mind that the general public, when looking for a reading don’t care how many cards, or what spread you use, or which deck you prefer, all these options can confuse a potential customer and the transaction fails to be completed, a sale lost.
A customer wants a questions answered, how this is done is usually of no consequences, as long as the question is answered as expected. Don’t narrow the field of potential customers, especially in a saturated market, if it’s overly complicated people will simply go elsewhere.
Keeping your services menu simple and clear will appeal to a wider audience, focus on the customer experience, not the number of cards, spreads, or decks used.
Isn’t it time you reviewed your services menu?
