28. Expectations (Kipper card meanings)

28. Expectations (Original Kipper Wahrsagekarten, Königsfurt-Urania, 2005)

This card stands for yearning and longing – for waiting in patience. It signifies all of your hopes and expectations and urges you to be faithful and constant, to wait and not give up. It forecasts no forward motion but instead a waiting period, one of hibernation and contemplation, of self-reflection, where we have time to think over all of our thoughts and actions and see how they have affected us and those around us.

Deep aspirations are in the domain of this card governed by the astrological sign of Aquarius – all prospects that we have, opportunities that are out there but of which the fruit is not yet ripe for picking – all are under its domain. Sometimes, this card can be interpreted as the female counterpart of His thoughts. On that note, it may also signify that a woman is expecting – a child, that is. Overall, its timing tends to fall around the three month mark.
