Jessica Ridgeway disappeared this past Friday. She never got on the bus to go to school, and was not seen by any of her schoolmates Friday morning. She disappeared from Westminster, Colorado, and the number to call is anyone sees her is 303-658-4336.
This reading starts with the King of Pentacles, reversed, crossed by the Hanged Man. There is a man who uses money and material resources to manipulate others in this picture. And he has everything in Jessica's situation connected to himself at a standstill. The ace of wands, a new beginning, is the part of the background that made Jessica's disappearance advantageous for him. Also in the background is the Tower, suggesting an overthrow of a comfortable lifestyle and possible bankruptcy. As a strong possibility, we get the Page of Pentacles, reversed. This augers unfavorable news about Jessica, but nothing that has been stated or heard yet. As an event that will take place, the two of cups, reversed appears. This foretells a divorce or the breakup of a relationship, and somehow, Jessica has become a casaulty of it.
In the place of fears, we have the seven of pentacles, reversed. I strongly believe that this is a fear of the perpetrator; and that he is worried about losing everything that he, personally, has worked for. In the place of environment, we have the Emperor, reversed, lending, once again, a masculine influence in this. The Emperor is the "father" card when he is upright, reversed, he speaks to an immature, irresponsible male influence. In the place of hopes, we have the nine of cups, reversed. There is a chance that overindulgence in alcohol or drugs will cause this man to make the mistake that will get him caught. The final outcome is the Sun, which is an excellent card, reassuring us that at this moment, things can be worked out to the satisfaction of everyone concerned. So I would cautously venture Jessica should be found safely. Cautously.....I do not like the reversed two of cups or the reversed Page of Pentacles. The two of cups, because the card deals with separations; and the reversed page, because he deals in bad news.
For a direction to start searching, I would be inclined to look "one" to the north, and then "two" to the east. Cups generally point west, but the two of cups is reversed, so it seems prudent to interpret this as east, since misleading and deception are already part of the picture. Perhaps "one" state, then "two" states. I will follow this up a few days, if Jessica is not found.
