I promised to do a reading on this question of justice for Ayla Reynolds recently. As for what happened to Ayla, I do not think I can add productively to the other readings I have done. But I do think I can add this question, and hopefully interpret the message of the cards. Keep in mind that sometimes, time is a difficult item to measure in any type of divination. And often, Justice takes time, moving at it's own pace.
I changed the question a bit on this one. I was having problems getting a clear answer with the question about "Justice"...it appears that there are six individuals who know what happened to Ayla at this point in time, not just three. Rather than chase down the role and consequence each perp should face in a perfect justice system, I reshuffled, asking if this case would ever be resolved. Here is what I got: the two of swords, crossed by the three of cups. This message is clear; the two of swords represents stalemates, and that describes the Ayla Reynolds case quite well. The three of cups is resolution here, and it has been delayed. It is at odds with the two of swords. At the base of this, we have the Page of Swords, reversed. This individual has appeared in other readings I have done for Ayla, so I am not surprised to see him again. He is an accomplice, and he has assisted the person who is responsible for Ayla's disappearance. While he has done nothing but aid the cause of injustice, his achilles heel is lack of commitment. When he gets tired, or when the going gets tough, he will break, and not be a reliable ally for the perp anymore. Moving into the past, we have the King of Cups, reversed. This is a male with adult responsibilities and a bad character. Lies are also associated with this king when he falls reversed. Also look for scandals and double dealing. As a desired outcome, we have the Empress, which is the "mother" card. This simply tells us that the best resolution would be for the mother to get her answers. The three of wands offers some practical help with the person responsible and the accessories. This could be a new volunteer effort or an experienced search and rescue team who wants to help Ayla's mother.
The Hanged Man tells us what the status of Ayla's case is right now; it is in a state of suspense. Efforts to catch the responsible party have not lead to Ayla, and other sacrifices will have to be made in order to resolve this case. The Tower describes the atmosphere surrounding this case right now; somehow, resolution will involve the overthrow of old methods of solving crime, and someone's position that has somehow been used to cover this crime will be exposed. The seven of cups in the place of desire tells us that the perpetrator has "helped" this investigation scatter it's energies and resources in too many different directions. The reading ends with the five of cups, which tells us of loss and regret, but with something returned. It will not be a happy resolution, though. So sad.
There are four "water" cards, (cups) in this reading, and three more cards that contain water references. (two of swords, three of wands, and the Hanged Man) It seems that Ayla is probably still either in Waterville, or very close to it. While the Hanged Man could be trying to pull Ayla out of a stream as the current pushes her past him, I think the "currents" referenced here are human egos of those close to Ayla's paternal family. It is possible that the Hanged Man is attempting to pull more clues from the currents of conversation and "talk" in order to pull out the truth. I do not claim to know how it will happen, but the Tower fortells the truth coming out in way that brings down an institution, demanding reform.
