Leigh Marine Occhi

Leigh Marine Occhi disappeared from her home in Tuppelo, Mississppi, during Hurricane Andrew in 1992. As the story goes, Leigh was only home alone for about an hour, but when her mom came home that morning, all she could find was blood and other evidence of violence, but no Leigh. I have gotten a couple of requests for readings, so I will do one. There did not seem to be many pictures of her, and this was the best poster I could find, with contact information, as well as pictures. 

The first two cards in this reading are the King of Wands crossed by the eight of wands. The King of Wands is upside right, so I will assume he means Leigh no harm, but the eight of wands is telling us of jealousy playing a role in the situation. Beneath this is the three of wands, which bespeaks assistance in this child's disappearance, so there was more than one person involved. The ace of wands also appears in the recent past, (of this event) telling us that a new opportunity enjoyed by someone was also a factor. The nine of wands comes up in the place of things that would have been best, had they materialized, and the nine of wands upright almost always denotes a need for patience. Patience was lacking. The next card is the Hermit, and he is an older man who is still looking for Leigh. 

The ten of pentacles comes up in the place of fears, and this bothers me in this reading, because it represents a fear of losing an inheritance, or a fear of losing a financial opportunity that is more of a gift than an earned bonus or salary. Often, a card depicting money or resources in a position like that will speak to motive for a crime, and it looks as if a fear of loss of material resources was a type of motive here. Also, a resentment, looking back to the ace of wands, over an opportunity that someone was going to be obligated to pass on, but very grudgingly. Bringing us to environment, we see Justice, reversed. The message is quite clear, there has been no justice. Judgement also comes up, but upside right. This is a fear, and someone has a fear of this child being found. Plain and simple. The five of wands is the last card here, and it is a card of violence and revenge. I really hate to see it in this child's reading, because the message is one of vengeance inappropriately expressed toward a child. 

Physical location would appear to be water in this case, and I say this because of the Judgement card, which features the past, or esoteric resurrected souls, rising out of the water. Also the three of wands is often help in the form of moving something through or over water, and I hope nearby watery places were checked as well as they could be. I wish the reading could have been more positive. 

Anthony Patrick Sinisgalli

Anthony Patrick Sinisgalli disappeared in August of 1987. He left his car at a rest stop in Kansas, with his belongings left inside. No one has seen him or heard from him since. I will ask the Tarot what happened to him, and ask about his current whereabouts.

The reading begins with the Page of cups crossed by Temperance. What an unusual message! The Page of Cups is usually a young person, but sometimes it can be a message of a birth, or a new idea. This is crossed by Temperance, which indicates careful planning, or "tempering" of a plan or idea. Beneath this is the nine of cups, indicating that Anthony's home life was satisfactory, and that he lacked nothing material. But behind him, we find the eight of wands, reversed, which tells of jealousy and disputes, often romantic. A woman whose life was involved at the time is described by the Queen of Cups; she is creative and sensitive, usually a good mother. I would expect her to have been in her twenties at the time Anthony disappeared. The next card is Strength, reversed. This is a very blunt message about a lack of courage on someone's part: facing someone and explaining the truth, or one's actions was found to be extremely difficult by someone involved in Anthony's case. It was very possibly Anthony. 

The King of Wands appears in the place of self image and self perception. This king is usually married and is a good husband and father. This is Anthony's perception of himself, and is also how others see him. The next card, describing environment, is the ace of pentacles. This is a very unusual card to appear in a missing person's reading, as it describes a lucrative opportunity. Nonetheless, I must call it as I read it, and the card is here! The next card, in the place of hopes, is the Emperor. This is Anthony's hope: that he was and is a good father. Could a mistress and an unplanned pregnancy have been part of this picture? Investigators need to consider it! 

The last card, describing the final outcome, is the Magician. He represents planned changes done with skill in a reading; he also represents skilled and professional assistance. This ties in with Temperance in the beginning of the reading....careful and moderate planning. It also suggests very strongly that Anthony had help "disappearing", and that he may have done so intentionally. Something I do not see in this reading is violence, which is interesting. Hopefully, anyone who did not get the appropriate closure will hear the explanation necessary, one day.

Elisa Lam

 Elisa Lam, of Vancouver, British Columbia, was last seen alive in January of last year. About three weeks after she was reported missing, she was found in a rooftop cistern in the Cecil Motel in downtown Los Angeles. Her drowning death was ruled accidental. No one is sure exactly how long Elisa was in the cistern; the estimate was about three weeks. For an accident, this seems a bit strange. So I will ask the cards how it really happened.

We begin with the ace of swords, crossed by the King of Cups. In this instance, the King is reversed, making him unkindly disposed toward Elisa. He is also older and more experienced than Elisa. The ace of swords is a triumph or forceful new start of something; sometimes this card describes fertility. Could a pregnancy or a suspected pregnancy have been part of this picture? Founding this, we have the nine of wands, which tells of a need for patience and tenacity. Elisa was waiting for something or someone. As a past event affecting this matter, we have the ten of pentacles, which is inheritances and real estate properties. And then, in the unrealized expectations, we have the two of cups, which is partnership. As the King of Cups has appeared reversed, we can assume his involvement in the partnership described by the two of cups is shady. The next card is Justice, reversed. Somehow, Justice has been denied it's say in this matter. Elisa somehow met an unjust end, and a proper account of contributing factors has not been made.

In the place of fears, we find the six of cups, which, once again, is a reference to children. Somehow, a fear of this aspect of family life weighed heavily on the mind of someone connected to this situation. The two of pentacles appears in the card of environment, telling us that there was an inability, on someone's part, to manage two situations; in this case, partnerships, at once. The next card is the seven of swords, which; once again, refers to taking what one either does not own or cannot manage. The last card is the four or swords, which represents sudden activity after a lull. Sometimes, this activity is the result of discontent.

For all appearances, Elisa Lam was the victim of a lover who could not countenance any publicity of the relationship, yet it has been categorized as an accident.
