Happy New Year 2018
Stephen has been contemplating on doing some kitchen renovations. He wanted me to ask my cards to see what they say. I decided to use two contrasting Kipper decks in a 3 card layout. As many of you know Ciro has renamed some of the cards and Regula has stayed true to the original names. The images on both these decks trigger a different emotional response. Let’s see what the cards are advising on the question.
Question: Should Stephen go ahead with his kitchen renovations? In other words, will the renovations be successful which is what he is really thinking.
The Mystical Kipper RICH GIRL, PRISON and GLOOMY THOUGHTS.
The opening card RICH GIRL is couple with the PRISON card suggesting some overall grief or disappointment. Traditionally, RICH GIRL is a younger woman without financial worries. Stephen is not married (dating a steady girl) and lives alone. The PRISON card suggests some obstacle. It could be a catch 22 situation. Followed by the GLOOMY THOUGHTS card one can’t help but think the renovations are not a good idea. There would be profound worry especially if he went ahead he may feel trapped by a contract or agreement with a renovation company.
Another feeling I had with this trio is that Stephen has reservations (gloomy thoughts) on going ahead with the kitchen renovations. The central card indicates some outside persuasion (prison) by his lady friend (rich girl).
I would have to advise Stephen against proceeding with the renovations. He will bring on more stress to himself than anticipated. Also, the PRISON card hints at limitations. Maybe the workers can only do so much because of the structure of the original kitchen/plumbing, etc.
The Fin de Siècle Kipper PRIVILEGED LADY, IMPRISONMENT and CONCERN.
This deck gives a slightly different feeling. The core essence is the same but I think Ciro has really captured a modern positive Gloomy Thoughts meaning in his CONCERN card. Of course, there would be concern about the renovations but not necessarily in a totally negative way as the Gloomy Thoughts imagery suggests. 🙂
If he goes ahead the PRIVILEGED LADY suggests little worry at the beginning BUT it falls next to the IMPRISONMENT card depicting some family grief (LWB–Stella Waldvogel)
The layout ends with the CONCERN card. This card suggests accumulated anxiety. The man in the image of the card is thinking about the mess he has gotten into.
Once again, I would advise against the kitchen renovations until some further thought is given to the intended plans.
