The Lyon Sisters

Katherine and Sheila Lyons, ten and twelve years old, disappeared in 1975, in Maryland, at Wheaton Plaza. There was massive media coverage, and everywhere that could possibly be searched was searched; every lead was investigated....yet no trace of the girls was ever found.

So....what happened to them and where are they? The reading starts with the two of pentacles crossed by the six of pentacles. This almost screams material resources. The two is about maintaining balence amid change, and sometimes about communication, and the six is about reaping what is sown or collecting and paying what is owed. It is hard to imagine chilren as young as Katherine and Sheila Lyon experiencing circumstances containing these elements! Beneath this, we have the eight of swords, reversed, which in this position, tells us that restrictions that had been in place were eased immediately before the girls disappeared and contributed to the situation in one way or another. It's possible that this represents the parents allowing the girls to shop by themselves at Wheaton Plaza. Behind this, we also have the ace of wands, which is the opportunity that was created for the perpetrator. He (and it WAS a "he") had no difficulty getting the girls to listen to him and leave the plaza with him. The next card we find is the six of swords, which is a card of travel, and I think the message therein is clear. The girls were taken somewhere else. This was done with relative ease, and the next card we have describes the person who did it; the King of Pentacles, reversed. He is a man who is dishonest about money, associated with white collar crime and, oftentimes, other crime, and is often a gambler.
The ten of swords comes up reversed in the place of fears, which represents the sad fear both girls had of never seeing their family again. In the place of environment, we have the nine of swords, telling of worry, imprisonment, and possibly, death. This is followed by the four of swords, reversed, which, when falling in this position, is a card of hoping for an opportunity to act or run, but which, sadly, never materialized. The last card here is the two of swords, which is the stalemate that this case has become. I find it interesting that six cards from the suit of swords came up in this reading, and that two cards with a value of two, and two cards with a value of six came up. Swords represents violence, and east......for instance, the nine of swords in the place of environment could simply mean "nine to the east". It could also mean an awareness of death or danger, or it could mean both. The pentacles that appeared in the reading point not only to monetary matters as a possible motive, but possibly to political matters.....I do not think the perpetrator was linked by familial connection here, but possibly by business dealings with one or both of the girls' parents. The two of swords is often a truce of sorts, sometimes between family members. It's appearance has me wondering if contact, unreported to the media, was made by the perpetrator in the way of a threat to the girls; and if that might be the reason they were never found. The only card that is not a sword or a pentacle is the ace of wands, which was the opportunity. It seems to me that not all of the statements of witnesses were properly investigated, and that not all of those who knew both girls were investigated, either. Someday, I think the whole secret will unravel because of a statement offered by an accomplice or an accessory after the fact, and I think the person's attorney will urge him or her to do it. This may have already happened, and it may be up to cold case investigators to re-examine statements and evidence and put it all together.

Seasons Greetings

Solstice Greetings, everyone; and the best of blessings!

Gabrielle Swainson

Fifteen year old Gabrielle Swainson disappeared from her home in South Carolina on August 18 of this year. It happened during the early morning hours, while her mother was at work. Some time ago, someone asked me to do a reading for her, but I have been holding off, hoping that Gabrielle would be found. A man named Freddie Grant has been in custody for several months in connection to Gabrielle's disappearance. This reading starts with the Knight of Pentacles, reversed, crossed by the ten of cups. This seems like a rather clear message already: an adult, but not yet middle aged or old, male who is discontent over the fact that the familial harmony symbolized by the ten of cups has eluded him. Founding this, we have the two of pentacles, which tells us that attempts on this man's part to communicate were either not received well, or not received at all. The Page of Pentacles appears next, and this card also heralds a messenger, but messages conveyed by pentacles are not always spoken or written words; sometimes they are favors or gifts. In any event, these "messages" were not properly understood by their recipient. As a location, all of these pentacles would point north, but ever so slightly, as the Knight is reversed, and we get a value of two on the two of pentacles, and a value of eleven on the Page. It could either be eleven, or possibly one plus one.

AS the best possible outcome, we have the Knight of Pentacles. This card is often law enforcement in readings such as this, and he is already involved to some degree. He falls upright, so I believe that his inquiry concerning the Knight of Pentacles is warrented. The next card is the card that makes my heart sink.....the Tower, reversed. This speaks of overthrowing perceived "obstacles" that somehow stood in the way of the Knight of Pentacles acheiving his goals. Had Gabbiee only vanished a day or two ago, I might wonder if she had just ben held against her will somewhere, but sadly, I think she has been hostage in one place for too long.

In the place of fears, we have the four of wands, reversed. This would be a place with a garden or a trellis.......a manicured place to enjoy the outdoors.....but not too far outdoors, and close to houses. In the place of environment, we have the ten of pentacles, reversed, which speaks to poor risks, monetary losses, and perhaps robbery. The King of Wands appears in the place of hopes; this is a man who is trying to find Gabrielle. He is a bit more stable in lifestyle and career than the Knight of Swords, and a bit more inclined to answer to science, rather than instinct. The last card here is the two of wands, which is a card of endeavors that require more than one person. It can also represent scientific method, which in Gabrielle's case, would be forensic evidence. I am sorry to say that I do not think I see Gabrielle coming home on her own, (I sincerely hope that I am wrong) but I think forensic evidence plays a significant role in solving this case.

Private Message About Comments On This Blog

You know who you are. You are the person who wants to argue about American politics. Please, this blog is a place where I discuss DIVINATION, Tarot especially, about events that are followed by the media. You have contacted me in a couple of places on the internet now, and I answered you appropriately, and what I deem to be the right place. This is one of the very reasons I moderate my comments here.

Colton Ross Barrera

Colton Ross Barrera disappeared from Kansas on September 26, 2008. He was supposed to call a friend for a ride home from skating, but never did. His disappearance was initially thought to be on his own accord, as if he ran away, but his family never thought so. Four years is a long time, if he ran away, so I am going to ask the Tarot what happened. The reading starts with the World, reversed, crossed by the Fool. This is an unusual message: lack of opportunity crossed by opportunity! Or, perhaps, lack of means for a spur of the moment opportunity.  Beneath this, we  have the eight of swords, which is a card of bondage and trivial details. Much time has already been wasted on things that have not panned out, but this, we already know. Also in the past, we have the Page of Wands, who is a young person who can actually tell us something pertinent, if we listen. He or she may be blond, and have a fair complexion. Usually, this card represents someone who is a child, but as four years have passed, this person is likely to be a young adult now. Testimony from this person will very likely contradict past testimony from other sources or possibly his or her own past testimony, as the five of wands, reversed, comes up in the realm of possibilities. Something that will happen is the four of cups, which is a sort of emotional dissatisfaction with the status quo of the case. As a direction, this card would point slightly to the west. Also, for location, grassy areas near a creek or small creek bed. I am also getting a picture of a bored young man who was not happy with things just as they were, but wanting excitement.

In the place of fears, we have the ten of cups, reversed, heralding loss of friendship and betrayal, but how deep did this betrayal go, and what did it entail? Often, this card speaks of family relationships. In the home environment, we have the Empress, the "mother" in the Tarot, and as she is upright, she is favorably disposed toward Colton. This is followed by the Knight of Swords, reversed, which is a card of violence. I also think that this Knight represents someone in Colton's acquaintance, with whom Colton did not see eye to eye. This would be a young man, with brown or darkish hair, and blue or hazel eyes. This is also the indicator in this reading that Colton met with foul play, rather than running away from home. The last card on the staff is Judgment, reversed. This card speaks to a fear of things "never changing", and sometimes, a fear of death.

Closer analysis of this reading leads me to wonder if there was a fight over a girl that went further than it was intended to go, or if all the witnesses or potential witnesses have been questioned properly. I do not believe that Colton ran away from home.

Update On Caleigh Harrison

Caleigh Harrison, who went missing from Rockport Beach, Massachusetts, this past Spring, has still not been found. I will try to do an update to the reading I did in May, when she disappeared. For the past, I drew the two of wands, the hierophant, reversed, and the two of swords. This tells us that whatever happened, more than one person was involved, a very unreliable explanation was given both for Caleugh's disapearance and for wherever Caleigh ended up, and the search is stalled now.

For the present, we have the Page of Wands, reversed, the Moon, reversed, and the Knight of Cups. The Page of Wands is often a message or information, and upside down, this would either be bad news or no information. The Moon reversed is deception and bad luck. The Knight of Cups is a young man, betwee the ages of nineteen and about thirty-five with light brown hair and blue of hazel eyes. Somehow, such a person has a role in this. Water could also play a role.

For the future, we have Temperance, lending another watery influence, but somehow balenced; the Page of Swords, reversed, and the five of wands. I do not like this.....the Page of Swords reversed is someone with information, but who will not give it in a straightforward, honest fashion, and the five of wands represents more games and lies. Wands would also point east. I keep hoping to hear that she is found alive, but the Moon reversed really worries me.

What Happened To Christina Whittaker?

Christina Whittaker was last seen in Missouri on November 13, 2009. Police found no evidence of foul play at the time, but she is still missing. Friends and family insist that Christina would never leave her child, so I am going to see what the Tarot has to say. This begins with the Devil, which is a card of bondage and speaks to an opportunity for bad things to happen. It is crossed by the King of Wands. I would expect him to be a man who has his path in life established already, and he may be a father. Somehow, he was involved in Christina's life. Beneaeth this, we have the five of wands, which is a card of games and often, of deceit. The perpetrator may have posed as a volunteer in efforts to find Christina. In the past, but before Christina disappeared, we have the three of swords, reversed, telling us that someone felt "wronged" somehow, and wanted revenge! Could Christina have been stalked? Following up this idea, the moon, reversed appears. This card does, indeed, tell us that Christina had a secret enemy. The moon reversed often refers to deceptions and lies. Next, the two of cups appears, reversed. This speaks to a broken partnership, often romantic. Did Christina have an obcessed admirer? It is beginning to look that way.

The seven of swords comes up reversed in the place of fears, and when this card appears reversed, it means competence and ability, and I believe this means that the perpetrator has already found an attorney. The Wheel of Fortune comes up in the place of environment, actually backing up the idea that the perpetrator has legal counsel.......he "feels very lucky". The next card is Temperance, in the place of hopes. In a perversed way, someone is hoping that things will remain "tempered", and that the boat will not be rocked. The last card is the two of swords. Right now, things are stalemated in terms of finding Christina.

A lot of sword cards came up here, pointing us east as a possible location. But then, we also have a reversed cups card, and cups and water represent west. It's possible that Christina is "seven" to the east, but water somehow brought her closer to where she was. I do not think she is very far from home.
