Kipper cards are known, among other things, for relying on significator cards to anchor the reading and give it direction and purpose. In case the querent you are divining for is male, card number one will be the main focus of your attention. This is where the directionality of Kipper comes into play and, everything that is before the Man will be considered his future while everything behind his back is to represent his past. The cards above him are his thoughts and the cards below – his physical reality.
If the reading is done for a female, the other main significator is used – the Woman card bearing the number two. In this case, number one, the Man, is taken to signify her love interest, boyfriend or husband.
