Lorrin Whitehead

Lorrin Whitehead, forty-three, pictured to the left, was last seen in February of this year, in Bannockburn, Victoria. She had been grocery shopping for her family. There has been no activity in her bank account, which is always a reason for concern, and she is also diabetic. 

The basis is Temperance crossed by the four of pentacles. Temperance is good management with time and resources, but the four of pentacles crossing it shows a challenge in that area, but what could that possibly have to do with Lorrin Whitehead's disappearance? Below this, we have the ten of swords, which is not a good card in a reading such as this. It is a card of violence and ruin. Behind the basis is the three of wands, which looks like help planning........someone may have asked her for assistance with something. The wands would point south. Following this, we have the nine of cups, reversed. When this card falls reversed, it tells of mistakes, and I think the mistake here had to do with trust: Lorrin somehow placed her trust in the wrong person. The next card is the Empress. This is likely the reason Lorrin was in the position to trust the wrong person; a desire to help someone, from a nurturing standpoint.

The card at the base of the staff, in the place of self image, is the three of cups, reversed. This indicates someone with self indulgent tendencies and it sometimes indicates endings. Cups are water and emotions, and so far, there have been two reversed cups in this reading. Somehow, misplaced trust with someone who should have been congenial rather than violent is key in this situation. The next card, describing the general environment surrounding the disappearance, is the Chariot. This is conquest, and playing two extremes, successfully, against each other. On purely mundane levels, this could also be transportation by vehicle. So we see Lorrin transported in a vehicle that is not her own. Next we have the eight of cups, which is dissatisfaction with the very thing from which the subject expected satisfaction. The final outcome is the ace of wands, reversed. This is a disappointment. Whoever is indicated in the three of wands.......and that card DOES speak of involvement of at least one other person, has not reaped the benefits expected from his or her actions. I do not like to see the ten of swords in any reading about a missing person, but I always hope, until the case is closed, that the person is found safe. Here, I would expect the perpetrator to have had several changes of heart concerning the concealment of evidence, possibly trying water first, then burning evidence. West was considered, but south was somehow more convenient, and there could be multiple places containing or related to evidence. I would expect three miles south and three miles west of the last place Lorrin was seen to be important.
