Who Killed Dusty Shuck?


Dusty Schuck, a twenty-four year old New Mexico woman, was found murdered alongside the road near Mt. Airy, Maryland on May 4, 2006. The last reported time she was seen by her family had been in New Mexico, a couple of weeks earlier. The crime remains unsolved, and police have very little in the way of evidence. Someone suggested to me that I see if the Tarot can shed any light on her case.


So who killed Dusty Shuck and why? We begin with the Wheel of Fortune, which is an unexpected stroke of luck, crossed by Judgement, which is a re-awakening of sorts, or a realization about something important. Beneath this is the Hanged Man, which is an opportunity that Dusty had suspended in the past, but was looking forward to "un-suspending". Next, we see the Queen of Wands, who is an energetic and creative woman. She is in Dusty's past, and is someone Dusty knew, and had some concerns about her.

The five of cups, reversed, tells us a little about that for which Dusty was searching. She either thought she had made a new friend somewhere, or thought that there was an old friend or relationship that held a reason for her to connect. Next, we find the ten of wands, relating back to the Queen of Wands, to show management of Dusty's affairs. This card often appears to show an unhappy, or premature ending.

The first card on the staff is Strength, reversed. This show domination and abuse of power. Whoever killed Dusty had a certain amount of power, and comfortable about misusing it. Next is the Fool, which tells us that while the choice to commit murder, or to put oneself in such a vulnerable spot as to be murdered, is obviously faulty, there was an air of "business as usual", and "this is nothing new" about this murder. In the place of hopes, we have the Devil, reversed. Dusty was killed by someone who actually thought it was "okey-dokey" to kill! All the cards that describe the killer are from the major arcana, which hint that the killer had some sort of importance in his community; and they also seem to be describing a male killer. Last, we have the Page of Wands, reversed, which is either a bearer of bad news, or bad news, itself. Its inclusion in the reading, along with Strength, reversed, causes me to wonder if Dusty was killed by a police officer, or someone else who had some sort of civic authority.

Anyone with any information about how Dusty Shuck was murdered or how she ended up in Maryland should call the Maryland State Police at 301-739-2101.

Update On The Hoggle Children


... missing Hoggle children to better plan acommunity search this weekend

It has been over a year since two toddlers, Jacob and Sarah Hoggle, of Montgomery County, Maryland, were last seen in the company of their mother. Their mother is the main suspect in their disappearance, and has been ruled incompetent by the court, and thereby held in a mental hospital. Efforts to find the children have been completely frustrated.

So for an update, I just asked the question, "Where are they?" Here is what I got. For the past in this situation, I drew three cards; the ace of swords, reversed, the Hanged Man, reversed, and the seven of cups, also reversed. The ace of swords is screaming obstacles and abuse, which is already self evident. The Hanged Man is reversed, and he wants us to know that there has been some false information floated into the media and into evidence, in an effort to keep the investigation from going in the right direction. As we can see that the card of imagination and delusion, the seven of cups, has fallen reversed here, it is obvious that the aforementioned false information has been generated deliberately, rather than by accident.

The present has given us the four of cups, reversed, the five of swords, reversed, and the seven of pentacles. The reversed four of cups is usually a good message, of new relationships and pursuits, but here, it is a bot troubling. It speaks of a desire to leave the two missing children "in the past", and "get on with life" without them! Without ever solving the crime. The five of swords is here next, reversed. This is guilty knowledge and trickery. This card often comes up reversed when there is a lot of deception in a matter, especially about violence and violent crime. The seven of pentacles is next, telling us that someone here has only "done his or her job", and the unsolved crime is, indeed, the ripe fruit on the tree that is being reaped.

In the future, we see the ten of swords, the Empress, reversed, and the five of pentacles. The ten of swords is often a card of violence, but I believe the message here is that the future will actually bring closure, perhaps an unwelcome closure, to this case. The one who has sown deceit and non-resolution will have to work with those who want to find Sarah and Jacob. The Empress reversed is a mother who does not behave like a mother, and whose "love", if it may be called that, is shallow. The last card is the five of cups. This card, as a location, would, at face value, suggest a church. Other ideas, especially interpreted in relation to the presence of the reversed Empress, suggest a place that is sacred, in traditional ways, to the person indicated by the Empress.....or......the "mother" figure, here. We have bits of water symbolism here and there, in the Hanged Man and the cards from the suit of cups. The type of scene indicated by these cards gives a collective picture of a stream fed or river fed pond, one that is not terribly big, but big enough to hide something. Yet the earth symbolism is also compelling, as in the seven of pentacles and the five of pentacles. Based on this reading, answers or evidence would appear to start somewhere between five or seven miles away from where the Empress was last seen with either child, moving north or northeast, as indicated by swords. No cameras and enough privacy to remain hidden. The reversed Hanged Man seems to point us not only to a place, but to a motive; this card speaks of selfishness and refusal to make any necessary sacrifice when we see it reversed.

Who Killed Joshua Wayne Crawford?

On July2, 2003, twenty-one year old Joshua Crawford was found murdered in his Frederick, Maryland apartment. The murder has yet to be solved, so we will see what light the Tarot can shed.

I used a horoscope spread this reading, and the first house, of appearance and personality, is 
represented by the Chariot, reversed. The message here is revenge. Egos had obviously been out of balance, and two parties, the victim and his killer, had not been able to find a middle ground. The card for the second house, money and possessions, is the ace of pentacles. This gives the murder a monetary slant. Some either took something material at the time of the murder, or had something financial to gain. When we move into the third house, of short journeys and communication, we find the seven of swords, reversed. When this card is upside right, it tells a tale of half measures and of taking things to which one has no right, but upside down, the meaning is good planning and success, albeit clandestine! Lungs and breathing are often indicated in this house, as, sometimes, are relatives and friends. So it appears that this murder was actually premeditated, by someone known to the victim. 

The fourth house, of home environment, turns up the six of swords, reversed. The six of swords is a card of travel, but when it appears reversed, it tells of the opposite. I think this refers to Joshua's body being left behind, in his apartment. It may also be telling us that Joshua refused to budge on something, or "go along" with someone else's plans. In the fifth house, of creativity and pleasure, the nine of wands appears, and the message is simple: impatience. Children are also represented by the fifth house; did Joshua have children and child support issues? In the house of employment relationships and everyday affairs, we find the King of Swords, and as he is upside right, we will assume that he is kindly disposed toward Joshua. Court cards in the suit of swords are often law enforcement or lawyers, so did law enforcement find Joshua? Or did his employer report that he had not been to work? This is the person who either found Joshua, or set matters in motion in order to have him found. 

In the seventh house, we have the seven of cups. This is the house of partnerships, marriage in particular, and of close relationships and public perception, The seven of cups tells us that Joshua was a bit of a dreamer, and possibly a romantic at times........but how this factors into his murder is curious......it is as if someone had written him off because of his dreams! The fallout from the death, itself, is represented in the eighth house by the six of pentacles, reversed. This is jealousy, but over material matters and money, rather than romance. The ninth house, of law, the "establishment", and, (ahem!) of long journeys, shows us the six of cups. The six of cups usually describes childhood memories and childhood friends. To see it here, in a reading about an unsolved murder, is disturbing, especially in the house of law and long journeys! The ninth house also governs education and criminal investigations, and I think this card is telling us that the murderer is someone who attended school at the same time as Joshua, and shared some childhood experiences. This person also sidestepped scrutiny and traveled at convenient times, and to this day, has not been looked at properly. The tenth house, career and social status, describes the killer with Strength, reversed. This is a person favors discord and abuses any position or opportunity that comes his way. In the eleventh house, we have Death, reversed. The killer's life is rather stagnant now, without much of a social life. His undoing appears to be lack of movement and inattention to details. I go out on a limb here, a bit, with a physical description, but I would expect him to be overweight, as well. The tenth and eleventh houses often describe feet, legs, and ankles, and both Strength and Death reversed tell a story of laziness. The twelfth house has the Hierophant, reversed. This is technology or a clue that is not standard in a murder investigation, but; nonetheless, plays a crucial role in investigating the crime. A secret makes it's way into the open in a very unorthodox way, and the murderer ends up surprised at his unlikely adversary. It is my opinion that he cannot hide forever, and that Joshua's murder will be solved one day.

Okay, Where Is William Bradford Bishop Jr. Hiding?

 
 
To try a horoscope reading in a missing persons case, I decided to use the case of William Bradford Bishop, a former Maryland man who was once a secret service agent. He disappeared in March of 1976 after the brutal murder of his wife, mother, and three sons. Several months ago, there was a question as to whether or not Bishop had died in Alabama and been buried, unidentified, but this was not the case.
 
The first house, the house of personality, shows the five of pentacles reversed. Bishop was the type of person who unable to settle for something he did not consider ideal, and he also got bored easily with any type of "status quo". Also, while there is no talk of extramarital affairs, he was not above having one and hiding it. The second house, money and possessions, gives up the ten of swords. Not only did Bishop commit an act of violence, he effectively ended his claim to everything for which he had worked, thus far, in his life. The third house, that of communication and short journeys, gives us Temperance. Bishop had, apparently, planned this event more than anyone suspected, and his next moves and communications were with people who did not know who he actually is, and were unacquainted with his family. The next card bothers me a bit: in the fourth house of home and environment, the Lovers comes up! This is almost self explanatory. Bishop had a lover waiting in the wings. This not only gave him a cover, but gave him a false alibi.
 
In the fifth house, the house of children, creativity, and romantic relationships, the High Priestess reversed appears to tell us that Bishop is just as shallow now as he was while married. This also points to a strong possibility that he never told his new lover his real name. Secrets; unhealthy secrets. House number six reveals the two of swords, stalemating Bishop's health, somehow, and his day to day affairs. Somehow, keeping secrets was not always amenable to moving forward in life. The seventh house, marriage and partnerships, gives us the moon. This is desire, laced with deception. Anyone this man loved heard lies, not the truth. House number eight controls joint finances, wills, and matters connected to death, and here, we get the five of cups. It shows regret, plainly and simply. Also, there is a suggestion that there is something material that Bishop would like to claim, but unless he comes clean about his new identity, it remains unattainable to him. A direct, oppositional path to the ten of swords, where he became violent and ended his career as William Bradford Bishop, is very telling.
 
The ninth house, dealing with life on life's terms, and also with long journeys, shows Strength, reversed. Bishop's style, when met with opposition, was obviously to abuse whatever authority he had, or any person who stood in his way. But where did he go? Strength reversed usually refers stalled projects and things that go nowhere. It has been speculated that Bishop relocated to Europe, but if so, would be associated with a port or a harbor frequented by pirates and criminals. Human trafficking is also suggested when Strength falls reversed. He has spent a lot of time in seaside towns and seedy places.
 
The Knight of Wands comes up in the tenth house, of worldly status, reputation, and career. Under an identity that isn't real, Bishop has established himself as a businessman who is "always on the move". Also, fire is the element associated with wands, it's possible that he is somehow involved in shipping oil. Perhaps one of his haunts was in the middle east, at one point or another. The suggestion is that he is still active in his secondary career, too. In the eleventh house, that of hopes and wishes, we have the Sun, which is success in all undertakings. In Bishop's case, this is simply getting away with murder. The twelfth house, of subconscious, hospitals, and death, produces the four of pentacles, reversed. Here we see more obstacles and setbacks. It appears that a life of crime under a false identity, lived largely on the lam, does not have the best retirement plan. The four of pentacles is all about hoarding and saving when it falls upside right, but upside down, it screams "waste". Another thing that is addressed by the twelfth house is self-undoing. I believe this describes Bishop's own undoing to an extent: when Bishop committed his special crime in 1976, there was no such thing as DNA evidence. He left enough DNA of his own behind for authorities to create a profile for him. He left enough DNA at both crime scenes, his home in Maryland and the place in North Carolina where he hid his family after he murdered them, to place him at both. He obviously did not expect science to progress so quickly in the area of forensic application. So....Bishop will, one day, be identified.

Who Killed Tracy Lynn Kirkpatrick


On March 15, 1989, seventeen year old Tracy Kirkpatrick was found stabbed to death at her Frederick, Maryland part time job at a shopping center. My question for the cards is "who killed Tracy, and will there be justice?"

The first two cards here are Temperance, crossed by the two of swords. This shows that there was a harmonious partnership and combination in Tracy's life, and the two of swords is a card of temporary truces and stalemates, so this would hardly fit in with the scenario of harmony! Unless....someone was quietly waiting for mishaps or relationship problems, in order to influence Tracy's decisions. This gives us a basic backdrop, of sorts, for exchange that led to the murder.

We find the five of cups beneath this. This is rejection and disappointment, with the rejected party failing to look at anything else. It is also cited here as a motive. The next card is the Moon, which is mystery, betrayal, deceit, and actions carried out under the cover of darkness, both literal and figurative. The ace of swords follows of the heels of the Moon, and it describes force, lots of force, both in love and hatred. This card often appears in readings about subjects who have been stabbed. Following this, we have the Hierophant. The Hierophant is the card of the conformist, and here, I think we are being told that the murderer is someone who can conform very well, and pretend to be an upstanding member of society. He has the "cover" of social approval, and over twenty-six years, has not had one worry about accountability. Not one. 

The state of the investigation right now is described by the Fool, the card of beginnings. This gives us all an idea of where the investigation of Tracy Kirkpatrick's murder actually sits. It has not actually taken any direction, toward any viable suspect, and this suspect is still at large. The card which is given to describe public opinion, and the surrounding details of investigators, themselves, is the eight of pentacles, reversed. This is no surprise. When the eight of pentacles falls reversed, it speaks of lackluster work done by lazy, untalented people. The seven of swords reversed in the place of hopes shows us a snapshot of Tracy's community hoping that someone competent will one day start the process for justice in this case. The last card is the eight of cups, showing that justice will be delayed indefinitely unless the community gives the police in Maryland a lot of pressure to make an arrest.

Will There Be Answers About The Lyon Sisters?


There are now two persons of interest named in the case of the Lyon sisters, who disappeared in Maryland in 1975. There was a massive search in Bedford County, Virginia, and the grand jury is deliberating about charges. The question is, will we find answers through these developments?

We start with the five of pentacles, which speaks of destitution and loneliness. This describes where the girls actually are. It is crossed by the World, which is triumph and achievement. While the desolation of the five of pentacles is not good news, it is rather expected after all these years. The World is a good sign, although investigators are still working at finding answers. The Star appears as a foundation for the recent search......a reliable tip was received. It was followed by the three of swords, which tells us a little more about the tip. There is an element of infighting between involved parties here; someone either heard a secret he or she did not want to keep, or someone divulged information out of malice toward another party. Either way, there was discord involved. The ten of cups appears as a possibility, which means that this lead may, indeed, finally bring the Lyon sisters home.

The Knight of Pentacles appears as a young to middle aged man who is searching for the girls. He is moving slowly, not only in physical searches through rural places which must be physically dug up, or unearthed, (earth is represented by pentacles) but through information and paperwork, as well. Answers will come slowly, but he is not going to give up. 

The six of swords appears as a motivating factor, in some way. It is a fear of travel, or movement, on one person's part. Location, location........if it were a location, it would be a body of water big enough for a boat and deep enough for travel. The five of cups follows, as someone's unshared knowledge. It also has to do with disappointment over an inheritance, or frustration because a reward or payment was not as large as expected. Most Tarot decks show the five cups near a stream or a river. The five of swords follows this, in the place of hopes. This is clearly revenge, which, once again, gives credence to the idea introduced by the three of swords that came up earlier, showing some infighting among parties. The five of swords in the place of desires clearly details revenge. The last card here is the one true problem with finding answers through this investigation; it is the Page of Swords, reversed. Here we have someone who has shared information, but with ulterior motives, and who has not really shared ALL the information he or she knows. Hopefully, the Knight of Pentacles will persevere, and yes, it looks as if we may get answers through these proceedings.

What Happened To Sarah And Jacob Hoggle?

Sarah and Jacob Hoggle are both missing from Montgomery County, Maryland. Jacob was last seen with his mother, Catherine Hoggle, on Sunday, September 8, and Sarah was last seen with her mother the following day. Catherine is now in jail, refusing to reveal the whereabouts of both children, so I will see what the Tarot has to say. 

We start with a base consisting of the nine of wands crossed by the Magician, only the Magician is reversed in this case, so his energies are not helpful. The nine of wands indicates that the person who began this course of events, Catherine, was patiently waiting for the right time. This was planned. When we see the Magician reversed, we know to look for abuses of power, and abusive behavior that is rooted in weakness and sometimes, passive aggressiveness. The eight of cups is beneath this, as a contributing factor. This card describes a situation in which one is not happy with choices made or wages earned, after thinking one would be. Next, we have Strength, reversed, which is, once again, telling us that power was abused, only this time, it refers mainly to physical power. So we have a person who felt disinterested in a situation or relationship because she felt that her own choices were overridden or ignored, and power had somehow been abused against her by someone, and we see it manifested again, in her behavior. Somehow, the children are not appearing as anything but pawns to the main player.

A possibility is described by the Knight of Wands, who is a man between the ages of twenty-two and about forty who is capable of "thinking outside the box" at times like this. He is someone who can gather information and communicate, and he somehow has input. Also, the Hermit appears, showing the ongoing search for these children. As a location, this card often indicates hilly terrain, with footpaths. The Hermit's time of day is evening.

In the place of emotional actions and needs, we have the six of pentacles. This message is clear; someone will have to bargain and barter in order to get the necessary information to find these children quickly. Even so, there is still a lack of perception in the part of the main player, here, concerning the importance of finding Jacob and Sarah. In the place of environment, we have the Page of Pentacles, which is the most encouraging card in this reading. This card can portend a young person who enjoys studying and learning, yet it also often tells of important messages. So it appears that a valid message or tip finally comes in. The next card, in the place of desires, is the seven of cups. This is often a card of dreams, or ideas that have not been developed into practical, workable plans. But there is another possibility: as this card is a water card, and as there is also a Seven Locks Road, near the Potomac River, in that part of Montgomery County, Maryland, perhaps it should also be searched. The last card is the Knight of Cups, reversed. Cups are symbolic of water, and when this knight falls reversed, one can also expect deceit and trickery. I honestly think this relates mostly to the testimony given by the mother, so far. I also think the seven of cups may have a triple meaning here, not only telling us about watery locations and half baked plans, but about delusions held by the mother as fact. Sadly, I do not think there will be a happy ending to all this, although I always hope I am wrong about this type of conclusion.

New Picture Of Relisha Rudd


This is a recent picture of Relisha Rudd that was shared with me on Facebook. It has been over two months since she was last seen alive, and more searches are planned tomorrow. Awareness is very important in missing persons cases; please feel free to share Relisha's picture.

Relisha Rudd


Relisha Rudd is an eight year old girl who was last seen by those who know her in March 1 of this year. So far, no witness has been able to provide reliable details on her whereabouts, and at least one suspect has been found deceased. While the poster above describes an event that has already taken place, this was the best picture I could find that was also combined with contact information. 

The reading starts with the ace of pentacles crossed by the seven of swords. This ace tells of prosperity in it's early stages, and the seven of swords crossing it suggests that counsel and premeditation of some kind are, or were, required due to lack of ownership or lack of skill. This is an unusual way for a reading about a missing child to begin, and it already looks as if Relisha was taken by someone who did not have custodial rights to do so, and it looks like money may have been a motive. The Hierophant appears below this, telling us that someone felt a need to "conform". While this may have been Relisha's mother, trying to create a more stable lifestyle, there is also a possibility that this is how the perpetrator was able to take Relisha.....by blending in and pretending to be legitimate. 

The nine of pentacles appears in the recent past, and this is a card of stability; somehow, this plays a role in motive and location here. This is a situation in which Relisha blended in while she disappeared, and still somehow blends in. The card telling us of that possible outcome, and possibly the best outcome, is the Lovers. This card not only represents romance, but the element of choice. This is for the future, and something that has not come to pass, so I will say more about this later on. The next card is the Knight of Pentacles, who is a middle aged man connected to this. His position has to do with the very near future, so I do not believe he is the suspect who was found deceased. As he is upside right, I will assume, for now, that he is kindly disposed toward Relisha. Perhaps he is the person who will find her. 

In the place of fears, we find Judgment. This points to someone being afraid of the truth getting discovered. It bothers me a bit, because it is a fear I would connect with the perpetrator, rather than with Relisha, herself. I would feel more comfortable about Relisha's welfare if the card described something a victim might feel in this situation. The next card, in the place of environment, is the five of wands, telling us of deception and games being played with investigators and authorities. Following this, we find the four of cups, which is the card of re-evaluation and discontent. Someone connected to Relisha's disappearance is less than happy with the status quo of the situation, and thinking about finding a way to come clean. And the reading ends with the seven of cups, reversed, which is determination and will; also of cutting dreams down to size. This is the card I find myself inclined to connect with choice described by the Lovers, which came up earlier in the reading. Despite the death of the last known person to see Relisha, there is someone else with information, and that person is trying to find a way to communicate with authorities. 

Nothing in this reading clearly points to this little girl being deceased, but I am always unnerved when cards representing perspectives and feelings of involved parties focus on the perpetrator instead of the victim. That is really the only thing about thing about this reading that truly scares me for Relisha. The other worry has to do with possible locations: three cards in this reading that involve water: the seven of cups, the four of cups, and Judgment. The suggestion in Judgment is that Relisha might be found in or near water, tagged along with a suggestion by the five of wands that a place where games and sports have been played is also linked to location. Water is also represented in the Lovers. Forensic evidence, such as IP numbers and cell phone data, will also be helpful in solving this case. I hope Relisha is found very soon. Five and a half weeks is way too long for a child to be missing.

Two Sad Updates

The remains of Skylar Neese were finally identified a couple of weeks ago, after she was found, during the winter, in Pennsylvania, a few miles over the West Virginia border and from the area where she lived. Her mother issued a statement. While her remains have been identified, the circumstances surrounding Skylar's death have barely begun to be investigated or explained. Skylar's mother, in the above referenced statement, makes a very relevant point about law enforcement's treatment of situations involving teens who have allegedly "run away" from home and are missing persons. The second update is about Robin Pope. The remains of a woman have been found near the area where she was reported to have last been seen, and Maryland is working to identify the person. There are speculations that she may be Robin Pope.

 
More information, as of Sunday, March 24; Robin Pope has been identified through dental records.

Robin Pope

 
Robin Pope was last seen in Maryland on March 1 of this year. So far, a few clues have been found, but no one has heard from Robin.
 
So what happened to Robin Pope and where is she? The reading begins with the six of swords, reversed, crossed by the seven of wands. The six of swords usually involves travel when it is upright, but reversed, it means quite the opposite. But water is somehow still part of the picture, just not travel over it or through it. The seven of wands is all about guarded knowledge or guarded property. I am going to venture a guess that about six to ten feet of water on private property, where law enforcement would need a warrent to search, is an important part of this picture.
 
As a foundation for this event, we have the three of swords, reversed. This tells of romantic and marital break-ups, and of difficulty in reaching agreements when rifts have taken place. This is an event that served as a cause of Robin's disappearance. The next card shows us the Knight of Swords attempting to disappear into the past. This is often a card of violence, either an event or a person, and here I would say he represents both. As a person, he would be a middle aged male who is capable of violence and has a motive for the same. Possibly blue eyes and light brown or greying hair. A possible future connection this man may seek out is the King of Pentacles, reversed. This is an older man, who is focused on money. As he falls reversed, do not expect him to be honest or have Robin's best interest at heart. Another future omen is the eight of swords. This fortells difficulty locating Robin, and tells us that wherever Robin is, she is trapped. The message here is similar, in this case, to what we saw in the reversed six of swords........non-movement and a few feet of water. I hope that I am wrong. Another possible message here is that the case gets stalled for awhile, for some reason.
 
The person who knows where Robin is would like to avoid the discovery of evidence by young people hunting or playing, and finding evidence by accident. The Page of Wands appears in the place of his fears, and he is already worried about young people, or, for some reason, children, divulging and announcing his secrets. Strength reversed appears in the place of environment, telling us that abuse of power has also played a role in this situation. Either someone in a position of authority has dropped the ball and refused to bring Robin home and have this perpetrator charged, or the person on whose property the evidence, or Robin herself, is hidden knows exactly what is going on and refuses to allow anyone to search. In the place of hopes, we find the Chariot, reversed. This is a card of voided projects and sometimes, unthical victories. Also, there is a message here that is similar to the reversed six of swords and the eight of swords; by this perpetrator's design, Robin has not been found. The final outcome here is Temperance, which is a good card. It points to workable and productive combinations, so we can expect forensic evidence, the mundane and physical meaning of this card here, and law enforcement, the "people" part of the mix, to work together and solve this case.

Sabrina Aisenberg


Sabrina Aisenburg disappared in Florida in 1997. She was only five months old, and while her parents have since moved to Maryland, no clues to her whereabouts have ever been found.

The basis appears as the six of pentacles crossed by the two of swords. This gives an atmosphere of working for a wage and sharing financial resources while wondering which direction to turn in life. A truce in an ongoing conflict about how money should be spent or invested. At the foundation, we have the ten of cups, telling us that at one time, the Aisenbergs were reasonably happy, as a family. The Hanged Man also appears in the past, and he tells us that at a certain point in time, this happiness ended with the abandonment of spiritual interests in favor of selfish pursuits. Possibly, this ties in with conflicts about how money was spent. Crowning this, we have the Fool, which represents chances that were never taken, and opportunities upon which were never acted. What could all of this have possibly had to do with Sabrina? The next card is the Sun, reversed. This refers to a possible broken engagement, or a voided contract.

Looking more closely at this mix of cards, it would almost appear as if the reversed Sun was actually telling us that there as been a "cloud cover" placed over events that have somehow been swept under the rug. The ten of cups also speaks of water, as does the Hanged Man. The cards would almost appear to describe an accident involving water. Nonetheless, I do not see violence, or deliberate malice here.

The first card on the staff is the Queen of Wands. She is in the place of environment as per the emotions and fears. Her imput into the situation has been key to the movement, or lack thereof, in this case. Next, we see the World, in the place of environment as dictated by actual events, and this represents travel........on the part of the Queen of Wands, not Sabrina. In the place of hopes or fears, we have the nine of wands, which speaks of defensiveness and a very prepared state in case of an attack of some sort. The final card is the King of Wands, correlating directly to the Queen of Wands. He is an adult male connected to the situation, and all future movement in the case depends upon him.

Garnell Monroe Moore

Garnell Monroe Moore was last seen in 2002, but as he often lived with different relatives, everyone thought he was with someone else until 2005, when he was finally reported missing. Here is a reading about him.

This reading starts with the Chariot crossed by the Empress. The chariot generally represents the balencing of opposite forces to move productively of the physical plane in one direction. That is why cars and other modes of transportation are often indicated by this card. Here it is crossed by the Empress, which is the "mother" card of the tarot. so we have efficient movement either by, to, or away from the natural mother. This is founded by the three of cups, which is often and ending to something that should have been happy, and sometimes a card of overindulgence.....often in alcohol or drugs. An event in the past is the Page of Wands, who is an active and verbal child; possibly Garnell. The realm of possibilities is represented by the seven of cups, which is telling us that too many choices have been offered here. Since the only choices that have been offered are possibilities as to what happened to Garnell, it can be safely surmised that someone has deliberately offered too many choices, in an attempt to deceive and to keep Garnell from being found. Who would do this? The next card says it was the Queen of Wands, reversed. This woman is jealous, loves to fight and argue, and scares people with her forcefulness. No one wants to stand up to her.

We find the Knight of Pentacles in the place of fears. This is a man who is quiet, but who will not let the memory of Garnell go. He is someone who is an adult, yet under the age forty-five, who really wants to know what happened to Garnell. For environment, we get the five of swords, reversed. There is an element of "vengence" or "revenge" at play, the the reversed Queen of Wands would be well advised to understand this. Not everyone is buying her story. The nine of swords, reversed, comes up in the place of hopes and fears, and the message there is simple: someone is worried about going to prison for this. One of the meanings of this card, especially reversed, is imprisonment. The final card is the King of Swords, reversed, who is not pleased with the reversed Queen of Wands, whom we met earlier. As soon as enough evidence is gathered, the Queen can expect the judical system to deal harshly with her. Sadly, I think the reversed three of cups tells us what happened to Garnell. I think he accidently ingested too much of a medicine, such as a cough syrup, or died from some sort of neglect.

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.
