How And When Will Ayla Reynolds Get Justice?

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" 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.

Help With Ayla's Whereabouts

I have had a lot of requests in the past week for a reading that might detail the whereabouts of Ayla Reynolds a bit more specifically.  Most of the readings I have done so far have answered "who" and "how", rather than "where". In a case that eventually turns up a living victim, the reason for this is no great mystery, as someone who is alive will obviously not consistantly remain in the same spot. Another reason why "where" can often be a difficult question for divination to tackle is explained by T. Raphael Simons in his book, Feng Shui Step By Step, very clearly: it is often difficult for someone who is not familiar with the surroundings of a person, object, or situation to know exactly what to ask, hone in on, or recognize in the answer to a divinatory question. He refers to this as one of the seven obstacles to divination, and more can be learned about this in Chapter 25 of Feng Shui Step By Step.  That said, I will attempt the question, and hopefully my limited knowledge of the terrian in Maine (too cold!) will not prove too much of an obstacle. Ayla has been missing way too long.

This begins with the World, reversed. Wherever Ayla is, she is stationary, and not moving from place to place. The World is crossed by the Page of Swords, which tells me that an accomplice is watching this spot. I do not think it is the perpetrator; I think it is someone who is trying to help the perpetrator ellude justice. This person has also done much to steer the investigation in the wrong direction. As an issue founding this situation, we have the five of cups, reversed. This is a return of a loved on or a friend, and I think this card refers to Ayla's move into her father's home. Reiterating this is the ace of wands, in the recent past, telling us of what SHOULD have been a joyful opportunity for Ayla's paternal family to get to know Ayla. The two of swords reversed is the best that was ever to come from this situation,, and this tells of an ended stalemate of sorts with events happeneing in the wrong sequences or matters simply getting out of hand. The next card is the two of wands, reversed, which tells us that there are at least two individuals who know what happened to Ayla, and as the card falls reversed, they are unwilling to cooperate with the goal of bringing Ayla home.

In the place of fears....fears of the accomplice described by the Page of Wands and of the others involved, we have the Jusctice card. I think that speaks for itself! The general environment for Ayla, herself, is the seven of wands, which is somewhere that is somewhat guarded and off limits to the public and investigators without a search warrent. A person who knows the situation is somehow stalling the investigation by disallowing the searches that would locate Ayla. Possibly private property or home, shed, or lawn that either has not been searched or has not been searched very well.

The next card, in the place of hopes, is the ace of cups. The perpetrator is not only hoping for a new beginning after the investigation is over, but as water is the element of cups, I think this person wants authorities to keep looking for Ayla in water! The final outcome is the Fool, who wants us to know that while the secret of Ayla's whereabouts is owned by the person(s) who hid Ayla, the outcome is owned by chance, and it is very likely by some unavoidable chance that Ayla is found.

One more thought about the two of wands reversed: this can also be a card of one person forcefully dominating another, and it gives us a clue about what happened to Ayla. The person she was with before she went missing is someone who is known for bullying and should never have contact with children again.

Ayla Reynolds

Ayla Reynolds, a toddler from Maine, has been missing since December 17. The reading I did was to answer the questions of what happened to her, and how would she be found. Ayla was staying with her father at the time of her disappearance, and he states that when he got up on the morning of December 17, she was missing from her bedroom. The reading starts with the Sun, reversed, crossed by the five of wands. Ayla's presence was welcomed enough, it seems, but not exactly what those around her wanted. The five of wands represents some sort of game, or trickery, almost from the beginning of this whole situation, before little Ayla went missing. This is based by the Page of cups. The Page of Cups here tells of news of a birth. And the message fading into the background is the seven of cups, the card of illusions and false notions. This reiterates the message of the base of the reading, expectations not being met, somehow, and deception being an option, for some reason, before this child even moved in with her father.

The very best thing we will all hear about this in terms of resolution is the Knight of Swords, reversed. I am not particularly pleased to see this card here, but not surprised. While I hope and pray for the best in all this, this Knight, especially reversed, warns of anger, violence, and sometimes violent death. The next card is the eight of swords, telling us of something that WILL take place. This is a card of restriction. Wherever this baby has been hidden, someone is keeping her whereabouts from becoming known. It gives me a little bit of hope that Ayla might be found alive. Just a little.

The six of pentacles has come up in the place of the feelings of the perpetrator. I was not expecting to see this card here, and I find it curious. It clearly refers to a financial reward, and I think it has to do with the reward offered for Ayla's return. Apparently, this has made an impression on someone. The next card, in the place of home environment, and opinions of family and friends, is the Hermit, reversed. The Hermit is like Diogenes, always searching for an honest man; and, quite frankly, finding him here, reversed, in the place of family is discouraging. It means that the people who lived with this little girl are not looking for her. In the place of hopes, we have the ace of wands, reversed. In addition to not looking for Ayla, someone is also not hoping that she will be found and returned to her mother. This sounds very harsh, but this is what the cards are saying. The final outcome is the two of cups. This is a card of partnerships. I believe that Ayla will be found by the efforts of more than one person or organization working together, and possibly in two days or two weeks. The two of cups may also refer to a significant other of someone who had access to Ayla.

Closer examination of same reading: The sun draws energy and objects into orbit around itself. In this reading, it is reversed. It is crossed by the five of wands. I think the very center of the house from which Ayla disappeared needs to be checked very carefully for clues.
