The mere idea proposed in the title of this post seems a bit too “out there” to be true but, contrary to its somewhat theatrical premise, is a realistic possibility. Being able to peer into the depths of someone’s thought process – especially of someone you have a romantic interest in, or perhaps a person you are about to do business with – is a wish many of us have had throughout our lives. The truth of the matter is, many divination systems allow us to do just that – not just foretell what is most likely to pass but also gain insight into the ideas and intentions of the persons involved in the matter. Still, Kipper is perhaps the only method that strips it to its bare bones and offers us exactly what we need – to read someone’s mind.
The process is actually quite straightforward and is something that you have perhaps already done without even realizing it. Anyone who has any significant degree of experience with Kipper is very familiar with the card called His thoughts which, at its core, carries the meaning of person’s inner world. What many don’t seem to catch is the fact that this particular card can also be used as a significator, an “anchor” card for a reading regarding someone’s thoughts and emotions.
This can be done either as a part of the Grand tableau reading or as a stand-alone spread of nine cards, much akin to the usual Portrait spread. Either way, His thoughts should be the main focus of the reading and the cards surrounding it on all sides, eight of them in total – three above, one on each side, and another three below – will allow us to weave the story of the person’s inner world, their emotional trials and tribulations, opinions, plans, aspirations and, ultimately, thoughts and ideas. The cards above the significator tend to represent more abstract ideas and those that have not yet been fully formed, while those below are more likely to point towards actual plans, aspirations and future actions the individual is likely to perform. Often, the reading will be at least in part focused on you – on the person’s opinion of as well as their intentions towards you. This will prove very helpful in determining your own course of action.
Even if this particular fortune-telling procedure initially requires a certain dose of suspension of disbelief, it is well worth a try as it might bring about some surprisingly accurate results that will aid you in future decision-making and social maneuvering. And while the moral aspects of such an “intrusion” may raise an eyebrow or two, this is not something that any effective form of fortune-telling concerns itself with. Cards are a perfectly neutral tool and it is up to you in which way you will use them (and how successful you are likely to be in whatever aim you’ve got).
