Will Sierra Lamar's Case Be Solved By The Court Proceedings?


I was recently asked to do a reading about whether or not Sierra Lamar's case would be resolved, and if she would be found and brought home, now that Antolin Garcia Torres is getting ready for his trial in the case. am not sure how much more I can add to readings I have done in the past for Sierra, but I will ask again, specifically in relation to Torres's court appearances and testimony.


We begin with the Sun, reversed, crossed by the ace of swords, which is also read reversed, here. In answer to a question such as this one, the reversed Sun is most likely telling us that there has been some sort of voided contract, as if the defendant was going to testify, but then the threat described by the reversed ace of swords caused the defendant to change his mind. He might have cooperated, had he been offered immunity for the crime with which he has been charged. So....no deal. Also, we have the Page of Swords still at large. This is a young person connected to the crime, somehow, who is either an accessory after the fact, or an accessory, and has not been charged. The nine of cups appears reversed in the past, as well, reiterating the idea of a voided contract or bad faith. So the defendant has no intentions of entering a plea and testifying.

In the realm of possibilities, we have the Fool. This tells us that there is still time for the defendant to change his mind and cooperate, and it also warns the defendant that evidence that can lead to Sierra's whereabouts might still be found. The Fools is an expert at surprises involving choices at awkward times. Something that will come to pass is Temperance, reversed. This takes us back to choices at awkward times: one of the meanings of Temperance, when it falls reversed, is bad timing. This defendant is not doing himself any favors when he refuses to testify.

In the place of fears, we have Justice. We have a defendant who is obviously afraid of Justice, and another person connected to this is the King of Swords, reversed. The suggestion here is that the prosecution back off, just a little, and give the defendant some emotional space. Not that he deserves it, but the reaction is that of a cornered animal, and one of the goals is to find Sierra. He would be more helpful if he felt less threatened. A disgusting and evil paradigm. Next, in the place of hopes, we have the Queen of Wands, reversed. This is jealousy and deceit, but on the part of a woman who once had a relationship with the defendant. The last card is the nine of cups, reversed. This refers to imperfections in plans, and the defendant may be counseled to go ahead and reveal his knowledge of Sierra's disappearance. It appears that these agreements, or lack thereof, concerning testimony in court and evidence are the biggest reason that this case has not been solved, and the prosecution has more in the way of witness testimony and evidence than has been shared with the public. Sadly, I do not believe the case will be resolved until the defendant is either in court for his actual trial, or has a court date for the same.

How Can Sierra Lamar Finally Be Located?

 

Sierra Lamar, who disappeared in March of 2012, has still not been found. I have done a couple of readings for her,  most recently, this one, dealing with Antolin Garcia, the suspect in her case. I recently got a question about possibly drawing a map, but I do not know the area where she was last seen, and I am a bit hesitant to try. Unfamiliarity with such subject matter is a serious limitation for such an endeavor. After pondering what I might be able to do, I decided to try a horoscope spread for Sierra. Sometimes astrological references are better for the determination of location than other types of divination. So my attempt follows.

In the first house, the house of ego, personality, and physical appearance, we get the King of Swords. Obviously, this is not Sierra, but as he falls upright, and as court cards in the suit of swords are often law enforcement, I think it is safe to assume that this man is either an officer or a prosecutor investigating the case. The second house, the house of money and possessions, gives us the four of wands, reversed. We have seen the four of wands in other readings pertaining to Sierra, and I think we still need to check the symbolism indicated by the card for location: this is a card of happy family celebrations, harvest completed, havens or refuges, or parks where people have picnics or outdoor parties. Once again, we see it reversed, so while the meaning remains the same, there is a chance that this location has either been abandoned or is not visited very often. In the third house, the house of short journeys, communications relating to business, memory and logic, and power; we find the Queen of Cups, reversed. This is a woman who is somehow connected to the case, and she has been hiding evidence and prevaricating to investigators. It is interesting that we see her in the house of "short journeys". She not only knows Sierra's location, but may have visited it. The fourth house, the "home environment", and coincidentally, the last days of life, give us the ace of wands, reversed. I do not think that we are being told of Sierra's home where she resided with her family; I think this is the "home environment" of the main crime scene. Wands point us south, but this wand is reversed; I think it is possible that the suspect began to go south with Sierra, but changed his mind, yet did not travel as far as he had originally intended. Sierra has not moved, but her locations has been "clouded", or obscured, at least once. 

The fifth house, of creativity, love affairs, and children, presents the Devil, reversed. This is actually good news for the investigation, because when the Devil falls upside right, that speaks of bondage. Reversed, the meaning is release from bondage. The fifth house also points us to amusements and pleasures, which, once again, ties in with the imagery of a place used for recreation. In house six, the house of day to day life, work relationships, and domestic animals, we find the High Priestess. She is a symbol of secrets, and she also links to water. Once again, we have the reference of hidden influences, and we also have a feminine influence. But this is being done quite casually. In the seventh house, of marriage and divorce, close relationships, close partnerships, and the relation of all of those things to the general public, we have the Empress. The Empress is the "mother" card of the Tarot. Something that grabbed my attention is the remote and almost archaic symbolism on the card; the myrtle tree and branches traditionally go along with the Empress, and her crown traditionally has twelve stars. Venus is also symbolic, and sometimes she is pictured with seven pearls around her neck. These elements, somehow, deserve consideration. In the eighth house, which represents death, joint finances, and transitions, we see the Wheel of Fortune. This card represents the laws of cause and effect, and also can foretell an unexpected stroke of luck. As it is in the eighth house, which is death, I think we are being told that we may find the crime scene, as well as Sierra. The reference to cause and effect may refer to evidence and the presence of DNA. 

In the ninth house, the house of long journeys, the social "establishment", law, and protection, we get the nine of cups. This card speaks of having plenty of resources, and is also a reference to "home", but home here is a place to eat and drink. The cups take us west, and the ninth house refers to travel, as does the third house, which, incidentally, also has a card from the suit of cups, pointing us a little to the west. The "home" symbolism tells us that the suspect(s) did not take Sierra too far from home, though. The tenth house, of social standing, career ambitions, relationships with superiors, and "father" relationships, gives us the Tower, which is a card of imprisonment and ruin. Overthrow of existing methods of investigation are indicated here, along with disruption of some type; yet all this may bring much needed enlightenment. Someone connected to the investigation appears to either be consciously or unconsciously "helping" the suspect, rather than helping Sierra's family find Sierra. The eleventh house, of hopes, hobbies, and friends, gives us the seven of cups. The seven of cups is a card of dreams, sometimes fantasy, but not of direct knowledge. The message on this is clear; Sierra's peers and friends do not know where she is. It is interesting to note that there is another "water" or "west" reference, though. In house number twelve, of secret, self undoing, and secret enemies, we find the Hanged Man. This is often a card of sacrifice and meditation, but I also see it as another reference to trees, a single tree, and water. 

I hope this reading has helped. If I knew the area at all, it would be easier for me to link the symbolism to actual features in the landscape. I hope evidence, along with Sierra, can be found.

Sierra Lamar Update

Someone sent me a question concerning the direction of the Sierra Lamar case. It is disturbing to see another year pass by, with no resolution. Here is a link to Find Sierra Lamar, and I will attempt to do another reading. Sometimes, I am not sure there is anything to add to a cold case with another reading, but a lot of time has gone by in Sierra's case.

Someone recently asked me if there would be any answers in court, as the defendant in her case, Antolin Garcia-Torres, has not entered a plea and will not cooperate. So I will update by asking if there will be any answers in court.

We start with the six of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the eight of cups. The six of pentacles usually appears reversed to describe bad debts and fraud; it raises my eyebrows a bit to see it at the core of the answer to a question on a matter such as this! It is crossed by the eight of cups, which in this case, is read reversed. This card is telling us a story of joy, happiness, and of matters spiritual getting abandoned for matters material. If I didn't know better, it would appear that Antolin did not get paid for something, and is patiently waiting for a payday of some sort! Or at least for his efforts to be rewarded.

In the background of the entire situation, we find the five of cups, reversed, which is all about expectations in this positions. Antolin was either waiting for an old friend, or had just been introduced, by an old friend, to someone new. The Page of Pentacles is also in the background. This involves communication or a message of some sort, about Sierra. So it appears that Antolin had either just met Sierra, had just been introduced, or had been told about her, and had attempted to find her that morning......the last day she was seen alive. The Queen of Pentacles also appears; she is a woman who has looked for Sierra since she disappeared, and has not given up. The five of pentacles appears as a sign of things to come, and in answer to a question like this, I would have to say that it is new information or testimony that is finally going to be heard.

The ace of swords appears in the place of fears; this describes Antolin's fear about the justice system, specifically that new and relevant information will be revealed, and it also describes some growing fears among Sierra's friends and family that Antolin will not be held accountable. The environment surrounding this is, once again, about a reward or "getting paid", because the next card is the ten of pentacles. Sometimes, this card tells of money that was spent on a house or a business, but; once again, I cannot see how this would play into a question like this one. Temperance comes up in the place of hopes. There is still a waiting game being played......but then,,,,,the reading ends with the nine of wands, upside down. This is the very opposite of waiting! This is an obstacle thrown in the defendant's path. Still, there are going to be delays, as the defendant has no intention of cooperating. Any interactions he has with the outside world, particularly where he or those close to him get any financial resources, will be watched and scrutinized.

It still appears as is Sierra is not far from where she lived. Outside, in a place where there are small animals, such as gophers and turtles.

Using Divination For Locations

Some asked me this question, in relation to Sierra Lamar, and it deserved more than just a short answer, so I got longwinded and wrote an entire post about it! Here's the question: "Can u pinpoint a high area of interest where her body is? Juli do u ever use forsenic astrology or look at other site as reference?"

Once in awhile I look at charts to hone in on a location, event, or person, but forensic astrology is still in it's infancy......inasmuch as interpretations go, anyway......and it seems to be more useful to me in determination of specific elements, rather than exact spots. By that I mean that I would expect a chart for that day to tell me what type of situation Sierra ended up in, and with whom. The cards actually serve me better in terms of exact locations, and in this case a card that we keep seeing, in almost every reading I have done for Sierra, is the four of wands. Other cards that have come up more than once are the eight of swords and the six of cups. The four of wands is a card of celebrations and happy occasions, and as a location it would describe a park or a place where people would gather for family parties. If this card were to point in a direction, it would be slightly to the south, as wands are fire, and the direction of fire is south.

Another card that shows itself frequently in these readings is the eight of swords. Most decks picture the eight of swords with a literal "damsel in distress" trapped in shallow water, surrounded by eight swords. The meaning of this card is a state of having been physically or mentally "trapped" in some way, and often it appears in readings about missing persons to tell us that the missing person, or important clues, can be found in shallow water. Finding such clues is almost never easy, however; as there is a almost always a problem with being "stuck". East is the direction that swords would take us, yet as the card is a card of being trapped or stuck, I would not expect the subject to move very far. So we have a general direction of southeast, but not very far from the general area from where Sierra disappeared.

To look at the six of cups, which we have also seen more than once in readings for Sierra, we get a picture of children playing. Cups represent water, which brings water back into the answer. Not deep water; a pond, shallow lake, creek, or small river. Situational meanings for this card usually include memories and childhood, but when it describes a location it is often an park, playground, or school. I would lean toward a park here because of all the water symbolism we have already seen, and I would expect the park or recreational area to have water for fishing or boating. A reservoir is also a possibility. Cups and water take us west, which brings up the possibility that Sierra's assailant took her one direction, water and elements may have taken her another. Other cards that have come up as clues have been the three of pentacles, the ace of pentacles, and the ten of pentacles, although the ten is almost always reversed. Pentacles point north, but in this case, I think they are telling us that the suspect's workplace either has clues, or that he did not move to far from work for most of his activities.

Another aspect of this is the court cards, which tell us about others involved, and this is where forensic astrology is also often helpful. There has been an adult female referenced in many of the readings for Sierra, and I honestly believe that at least one or two other people know more about Sierra's case than they have let on. This is also why I think Sierra will be found; I think a witness after the fact, or someone who knows a lot about the case will be able to put the information together and find her.

Update On Sierra Lamar

There have been some updates on the case of missing Sierra Lamar, the high school student who disappeared in Morgan Hill, California, in 2012. Sierra has not been found, but some explanations have been published by the media concerning the defendant, Antolin Garcia-Torres, and the evidence against him. I have had a couple of requests lately for another reading on her. The biggest question in front of us concerns how and where can Sierra be found.

The three cards I drew for the past are the Queen of Swords, the four of wands, and the nine of cups. This is interesting, because the four of wands has come up for Sierra in previous readings for location. Also, the cards have hinted in previous readings that a woman connected to the perpetrator has more information than she has given. The four of wands is usually a depiction of a celebration or a party, and such elements appear somehow involved with location here, such as a park or a location where a wedding may have been held. I say "park" because I expect it to be an outdoor location, and I also think there may be a bridge and an older building, that may not be in current or continuous use nearby. This is followed by the nine of cups, The nine of cups encourages us not to give up; it is a card of success in it's own right. The success in this card is more emotional than monetary, however; it suggests that a tip or information from someone who cares about justice will help more than financial resources, here.

The next three cards, drawn for the present, are the Hanged Man, the ace of swords, and Justice. The Hanged Man is suspension and sacrifice. Garcia-Torres refuses to explain the evidence, and Sierra has not been found. Her location is in "suspense". The ace of swords represents a heroic new approach to this dilemma, and as it is followed by Justice, I believe the new approach has to do with the prosecution and their decision to proceed with the case using the evidence they have, despite the fact that Sierra is still missing. Either more cooperation from the defendant will be forthcoming, or another person with information will come forward. My fingers are crossed right now, but that is how this looks so far!

For the future, we have the two of wands, the four of cups, and the nine o wands. This is an interesting correlation to the beginning of this reading, which also gave us a "four" and a "nine" card to describe the situation's past events. The difference is that instead of the Queen of Swords, which tells of a female person, we see the two of wands, which tells of possible assistance or help from......another person. The four of cups is dissatisfaction with the status quo, and the nine of wands is lack of patience. So to put this together, it appears that pressure from the judicial system and some very lucky information from someone who does not mind helping can actually solve this case. I wish things could have gone more favorably for Sierra,

Will Sierra Lamar's Case Ever Be Resolved?

Sierra Lamar went missing in March of 2012, and it has been almost two years with no answers. A suspect has been charged, but not tried. His court dates continue to get continued. So will her case ever be solved?


Three cards here indicate the search and investigation in the past: the ace of cups, the Hierophant, and the Queen of Cups. Water has always come up in readings I have done in the past, connected to this case, and continues to do so. The element of the suit of cups is water, and the ace is often a river. The Hierophant is tradition, and traditional search methods have been used, albeit unsuccessfully. The justice system is another traditional "system" that is being relied upon, even though the defendant has not responded in the manner expected by investigators and the prosecution. There is also a woman connected to the investigation, showing up in this reading as the Queen of Cups. She has intuitively put together quite a few pieces of the puzzle, already. She would like to find Sierra before insisting upon moving forward in court.

The three cards I pulled for the present are the nine of pentacles, the King of Wands, and the Magician. One of the meanings of the nine of pentacles is completion of a project, and this meaning seems to fit my question about resolution to the case better than any other possible meanings this card has, even though the case has not been solved. The King of Wands is someone male who is also connected to the investigation, and has been since the beginning. He gets some information that comes as a surprise, follows up on it, and turns to the Magician, who is an expert at gathering and analyzing evidence. At this point, I should state the obvious; these cards definitely want to discuss the resolution of finding Sierra and bringing closure to those who love her, rather than prosecution. As the Magician is upside right, I think someone may actually bring him some actual evidence to work with.

The future shows us the six of cups, the High Priestess, and the four of swords, reversed. The six of cups is looking back at the past. Places that have been searched, places the defendant and Sierra have both visited, and; once again, water. A garden with water, a place that somehow welcomes children...yet looks to the pasts of the individuals involved in the case. The High Priestess also deals with water, but in a different way.....she is the subconscious. She also represents things that are hidden. As a physical location, she could also represent a church dedicated to a female saint. The four of swords reversed is renewed activity, successful renewed activity, but with a bit of social unrest. I don't think that finding Sierra, all of the evidence, and a successful prosecution is going to lay this case to rest peacefully. There will be a lot of outcry.

All of the water symbolism points us in a slightly westward direction, and other symbols that jump out at me from the cards are a lake, a river, a garden, a hand, and children playing...ala the six of cups. As unbelievable as it seems, I do see this case resolved one day, sooner than anyone thinks.

Update For Sierra Lamar

 
There was a recent request for a reading for Sierra Lamar, who disappeared a year ago, with a focus on what Sierra was thinking at the time this happened, and possibly, the cause of death. I can certainly try this, and see what the Tarot has to say about those things.
 
This is rather a disturbing reading. It starts with the Emperor crossed by Temperance. The Emperor is the "father" card of the Tarot, and as he falls reversed here, I am going to assume that he is favorably disposed toward Sierra. Temperance is a card of good combinations and relationships, so it would seem that Sierra's father or someone who served as a father figure in her life had recently given Sierra some advice concerning boyfriends, drugs, or underage drinking. Beneath this, we find the six of swords, upside down. When this card falls upright, it is a card of travel. We see it reversed, here, which means that Sierra did not travel far, if at all, on the last day she was seen alive. It also tells of situations that have no escape, and it looks as if she was warned by her father about this particular possibility. The World also appears in Sierra's past, immediately before she disappeared. She had apparently just decided to do something that she saw as a positive step, or move, in her life. The five of swords overpowered her, though. Anger and revenge were involved. The Page of Wands appears as a message she was waiting to read or hear, but never got to see. Perhaps this was when her phone was taken from her. It seems that Sierra's last thoughts had to do with texts, messages, communication, and probably her phone.
 
The Hirophant, a card of tradition and sometimes of marriage, figured heavily into Sierra's fears. This is a bit unexpected, because Sierra was so young. The Knight of Cups, a romantic contact, occupied her thoughts. The Queen of Swords, reversed, was another aspect of Sierra's fears. There was a feminine influence here. The Queen of Swords reversed is intolerant and violent. The placement of all the cards from the suit of swords in this reading suggests strangulation or suffocation, as Swords' element is Air. Of course, the meaning could be more literal and suggest actual knives, too, but I tend to think strangulation. Justice, reversed, falls as the final outcome. Excessive severity, unjust punitive actions, and injustice in general is the meaning here. Sierra had either overstepped a boundery, or was perceived to have done so, and someone (or possibly two someones....a male and a female) about whom the Emperor had warned her decided to seek revenge. It does not appear that Sierra expected this, or saw it coming.

How Can Sierra Lamar Be Found?

As a bit of an update to the readings I have done for Sierra Lamar, I decided to ask the Tarot how she can be found. Unfortunately, this case is dragging. I drew three cards for the past here, and those are the two of pentacles, which speak of difficulties with new projects, the Knight of Pentacles, reversed....an olive complected male with dark hair and eyes; I believe this is the suspect who has been charged, and the eight of pentalces, reversed. Either the suspect's former workmates need to be questioned one more time, or the premises of the suspect's former job, and the surrounding areas, need to be searched again.

For the present, I drew the Queen of Wands, who has shown up in earlier readings about Sierra, the King of Wands reversed, and the six of cups reversed. The Queen here is a woman who probably has blond or strawberry blond hair and is working hard to find Sierra. The reversed King is a man who's efforts are countering her efforts, and effectively stalling her. The six of cups reversed represents outworn ideas for solving cases like this, that have worked in the past, but will not work now. The King of Wands is not allowing the Queen to use her instincts to get at the truth.

In the future, we get the seven of swords, reversed; the six of pentacles, reversed, and the five of wands. The seven of swords reversed speaks to good legal counsel, but it is somehow met with the bad debts or unfair dealings represented by the reversed six of pentacles. The last card is the five of wands, which tells of more contradictions and games. It looks very much to me as if the suspect's former place of employment, or his former workmates, could yield the answers.

What Was The Motive In Sierra Lamar's Disappearance?

I got a question the other day about Sierra Lamar's case, and a request for an update. Specifically, the question was abut the motive of the perpetrator here. Sierra Lamar disappeared in March of this year in California. A suspect has been arrested, but has not entered a plea.

 For the reading, I got three cards for the past concerning the motive: the ten of pentacles, the ace of pentacles, and the Tower, reversed. The ten of pentacles is usually and inheritance, but sometimes a gift, prize, or a one time payment in a large amount. This type of element was part of the motive. Next, backing this up, is the ace of pentacles, which is a similar message, but more of an opportunity to make money, rather then money given as a gift or a prize. Following this, is the Tower, reversed, which in that postition, means inprisonment and sometimes the unravelling of plans to a distasterous effect.

In the present, we have the nine of cups, reversed, speaking to imperfections concerning someone's plans. The three of wands came up next, which means treachery, and help was offered that was untrustworthy. This is all followed up by the King of Wands, reversed, who is a nasty and unyielding male, who is older than Sierra and was at odds or cross purposes with her in some way. At least two people have information about what happened to Sierra, although only one knows exactly where she is.

The future brings this person worry about plans and actions that do not pay off, in the form of the seven of pentacles upside down. This is the garden that never grew, the tree that never bore fruit. Also the person who never got paid. Next is the six of swords, reversed, which is a card of travel. Upside down, it tells us that this case, along with Sierra, are not going anywhere, anytime soon. Also, I am still of the opinion that Sierra is not far from her home. The last card is the five of wands, which is a card of games and trickery. The next move, it seems, is up to the court. The court will have to move forward with this case without the cooperation of any defendant.

Legal Proceedings And The Sierra Lamar Case

I have been asked by several posters to follow up with Sierra Lamar's case, the person charged therein, and for update on locating her. I decided to ask what type of testimony Antolin Garcia would give, and how they could find her.


The first three cards, representing the past, give us the High Priestess reversed, the nine of wands, reversed, and the six of cups. I would almost be inclined to think that Antolin Garcia has a new attorney, and that she is a woman, except that the High Priestess is reversed. I think a female relative of Antolin's has convinced him not to cooperate. Either an  older sister, or his mom. The next card, the nine of wands, is the impatience everyone else is beginning to feel at not finding Sierra. The six of cups is a place where children play. The card looks to the past, and it is in the position of the past. I think more clues, or maybe even Sierra, may be in a park that is no longer used for play or children.

The next three cards are the Page of Swords, reversed, the Knight of Pentacles reversed, and the Knight of Swords. These are the present. The Page of Swords is someone who knows what happened but has not yet been arrested. This person is deliberately not cooperating, and has encouraged Antolin not to cooperate. The reversed Knight of Pentacles is Antolin. He isn't going to budge from his position. The Knight of Swords is the prosecuter. He is going to do whatever he can to solve this. But we are deadlocked at the moment.

The future brings us the Page of Cups, reversed, the Wheel of Fortune, and the ten of cups, reversed. From this, I would expect the actions of someone who does not know what he/she is doing to be blessed with some very good luck somewhere down the road. The Wheel of Fortune stands for chance, but as it falls upright, chance is in our favor. The ten of cups tells us of a delayed conclusion, and also points westward, (in a stagnated sort of way) and to water. The reference to family-happiness-but-not-any-more is reiterated here, too.....check places where children once played but do not anymore and places where celebrations were once held but are not anymore. Water still plays a key role.

What Will It Take To Find Sierra Lamar

Sierra Lamar has been missing over three months. While there has been an arrest, and law enforcement seems certain that a case against the defendant, Antolin Torres, can proceed, and Sierra's twitter and facebook accounts have both been hacked, there has still been no indication of where Sierra actually was hidden. There have been several requests over the past few weeks for an updated reading for Sierra's case, and I have held off, feeling that the questions are still very much the same as when this started, and that there wasn't really anything new that divination could tell us, but in the presence of hackers who apparently know, have, or have guessed Sierra's passwords to her accounts, and who have given law enforcement false information, (I need a big frowny-face for this) I think there's a new reason to ask questions. So...giving this one more shot, my question is, are the police on the right track with suspect and location for Sierra?

The first three cards tell us about things that are in the past. These cards are the three of cups, the eight of pentacles, and the five of pentacles, reversed. The three of cups speaks of firndships and small celebrations and get-togethers.....but it can also tell us of an ending. Cups also relate to the element of water. The eight of pentacles is the card of the apprentice, and refers to workplaces. The five of pentacles reversed represents novel, and often illicit companionship. Looking at this, it would seem that the suspect may have first noticed Sierra at his job, and that he took an unhealthy interest in her. It looks, I repeat, LOOKS, as if the police are right on the money in their suspicions, with the exception of their statement that whoever took Sierra was not aquainted with her. So far, from this reading, we are being told that Sierra actually did at least know who the perpetrator is, even if she did not know him well.

The next three cards describe the present. They are the Knight of Wands, the six of wands, reversed, and the Tower, reversed. The Knight here is a man who is looking for Sierra. He is between the ages of twenty and forty-five. He may actually solve the case, somehow. A problem for him is the six of wands, reversed, which is delay and fear of an enemy who will "win". This card also relates to news, and because it is reversed, I think it is fair to say that the news being investigated is bad. That brings us to another problem for the Knight of Wands......he is a person who does not enjoy interpreting or delivering bad news, and he would love to have some good news, or at least some definate answers, to deliver. We also have the Tower, which is a card of destruction and ruin. A whole way of life can be changed when we see this card. Reversed, it means the same, but to a lesser degree, and with an added element of imprisonment. I cannot forget that the suspect is in jail right now, refusing to testify, so it looks, I repeat, LOOKS, as if the police are on the right track.

For the future, we get these three cards: the seven of cups, reversed; the Page of Swords, and the Devil, reversed. It is good to see the seven of cups reversed here. Upright, this card means that there are too many ideas and leads to investigate, and that the facts would be hard to nail down, but reversed, it means that investigators are finally narrowing down the clues into a framework that can be followed. Also, there's that "cups" and "water" symbolism again. The Page of Sword is often a troublemaker or a "spy", but here, I think this is someone who testifies, for whatever reason, and actually assists in finding Sierra. Once again, it really looks like more than one person knows where Sierra is. The Devil, reversed, is not only the male energy behind this crime, but a vacillation between resolution and indecision. It looks like law enforcement knows who the Page of Swords is, and is waiting for him to talk, and it also looks like water, may, indeed, be part of the mystery of location for Sierra.

The playful atmosphere described by the three of cups, and the methodical searching described by the reversed seven of cups makes me feel that the answer to whether or not law enforcement is on the right track concerning is searches is "yes".  I hope they succeed in finding her soon.

Sierra Lamar And The Arrest On May 22

Now there has been an arrest in the case of missing Sierra Lamar. The sheriff in Santa Clara county, California thinks that this person is definately connected to Sierra's disappearance, and has had him under surveillance for at least several weeks. She was hoping that his comings and goings would lead to Sierra's whereabouts, or at least yield clues, but we still have not found Sierra. There have been some requests for another reading about this, and I have asked the cards if this arrest has brought us any closer to solving this crime.

This reading starts with the four of cups crossed by the Moon. The four of cups gives us an air of ingratitude somewhere in this picture, and while the Moon can often mean psychism and vision, it can also mean deceit. In this reading, it appears to mean the latter. The truth simply isn't good enough for someone, or will not work out the way he/she would wish, so deception is employed, instead. We have this based by the Knight of Swords. This is a quick, sudden event that may have included violence and definately included geographic movement. The five of pentacles, reversed, fades into the background, taking with it an opportunity to get at the truth. Something that may still happen is the eight of cups, reversed. Upright, this card woud tell us about someone who had gotton his wish, but then changed his mind, Reversed, it means getting one's wish, but at the expense of wisdom and spirituality. It seems to be telling us of someone who may get what he/she wants, but is not yet mature enough for it. Something that will happen is the four of wands, reversed. Perhaps this arrest will help solve the case, but glory and happiness of the four of wands upright, (it is a card of celebrations) will be tarnished, as it falls reversed.

The Page of Cups falls in the place of fears. This can mean news involving a young person or a child, which, of course, everyone wants here. As it falls in the place of fears and negative emotions, I think the truth about what happened to Sierra will still be hard to elicit. The next card is very important in this reading: in the place of environment, as in what is going on NOW, we have the ten of wands, reversed. This tells of duplicity and treachery. It also does not bode well for legal matters. Upright this card speaks of working toward a goal and barely making it, or somehow abusing power and resources, but reversed, it is lies and separation. It is quite possible that in the wake of this arrest, more evidence is being corrupted or destroyed. The nine of pentacles appears in the place of hopes, which is independence and financial well being. Somehow, that is on the mind of the perpetrator. The reading concludes with the World, reversed. This is not a good card for the outcome, as it speaks to a slow resolution in this case, rather than a quick one.

It does not appear that we will get the answers we need from the defendant in the arrest, but I could not help but notice the presence of two fours in this reading. In Taoism, four is the number of family, and wood is it's element. I still think that Sierra did not travel too far away from her family's home, and I also think it is time to start questioning everyone who knows Antonlin Garcia Torres, the defendant who is now charged. Water is still an element somehow, because the Moon appeared, and part of the deception is making it appear that Sierra is "nowhere in the world". Ten of wands: that card points south, but here, it falls reversed. It could be telling us that Sierra backtracked, or that she really didn't go anywhere at all. I wish I had more positive things to say about this. And I hope she is found today.

Updated Tarot Question For Sierra Lamar

Some asked me to do another update for Sierra Lamar, who went missing in March. While I do not think much has changed since the initial reading and update, I decided to try one more reading, just honing in on Sierra's location. So far, it does not appear that any of the so-called clues or testimony has been helpful; in fact, it looks as if law enforcement may have been deliberately guided to the wrong track from the beginning.

We begin with Judgement reversed crossed by the Star. This means that someone is deliberately attempting to cheat the judicial system. Judgement also sometimes means fear of death. The Star means hope and courage, and as it crosses the problem now experienced by those searching for Sierra, I think we can safely say that someone is deliberately keeping any valuable information about Sierra away from those who could bring her home. The Wheel of Fortune is in the background here, and this is the opportunity that someone had to make Sierra disappear in the first place. Someone had wanted to remove Sierra for some time, and had finally found a way to step up his/her game and make it happen. The seven of cups fades into the past here, and this is a card of illusions. Because we have seen Judgement reversed already, the message is that the illusions were deliberately placed. The eight of swords reversed is something that could happen. This means that this charade can come to an end soon and that Sierra can be found. A possible location described by this card is drainage ponds and runoff. I hate to think of septic systems, but that, too. This is followed by the three of cups, which is the end of something, and also an excess of food or alcoholic beverages. Upright, this card would speak of reasons to celebrate. Reversed, it is telling us, in this case, that something that used to be anticpated is now cooling down, so to speak. As a location, it tells of a place where celebrations may have been held, but not in a long time. Mild disrepair.

The five of pentacles describes the mindset of the person(s) who knows where Sierra can be found. Money is on this person's mind, and budgeting money has become somewhat of a problem. Help is not as available as it would be if this person were not hiding something, and this person cannot afford to be open and honest because he/she is hiding a crime. The Knight of Pentacles, reversed, comes up in the environment. This is a lazy, dependant, good-for-nothing type of male and he may have dark hair and brown eyes. He is not one of Sierra's agemates; he is an adult. The Knight of Swords, reversed, comes up in the place of hopes or fears, and I think this describes the event surrounding Sierra's disappearance and the feelings of the Knight of Pentacles. Reversed, this is a card of violence. The last card is the three of pentacles, reversed. This takes us back to the five of pentacles, in the Knight's worries. It is a card of mediocrity in the workplace, and may tell us of someone who is either not working when he should be, or is having problems at work. Somehow, this is tied to Sierra's disappearance and current location enough to show up in a reading.

Back to Judgement crossed by the Star. This perpetrator has had some help in hiding Sierra, and the Star is the hope these people have of blocking any new beginnings. I am hoping they do not get away with it.

Whereabouts For Sierra Lamar

There have been a couple of requests for an update concerning missing Sierra Lamar. I think the other readings that I have done give us a basic outline of what has happened, so I will attempt an update, focusing on where and how she might be found.

This reading gives me the Lovers crossed by the Page of Swords as a beginning. There are two people with direct knowledge of Sierra'a whereabouts. The Page of Swords lends an element of spying and mistrust to the relationship between these two individuals; they are each a little afraid of getting thrown under the bus, so to speak, by the other. As a cause for this, the Knight of Swords, reversed, tells us that Sierra did, indeed, incur violence. Reversed, this Knight is often and violent and dangerous person. Occasionally, this card will even refer to fatal violence. As an influence trying to recede into the past, we get the Empress, reversed. Upright, this is the card of the Mother; reversed, she is maternal instinct gone awry. Already, this does not look promising.

The very best thing that can be done by either of these either of these accomplices is the five of cups, reversed. This is a suggestion that Sierra be returned. Given back to whomever may care for her. The King of Pentacles is on the horizen as a forthcoming event, and I think he is the one who will finally solve this matter. In the place of secrets, we have the Hanged Man, reversed. This is a sad statement for the state of this affair, since it tells us that those who should be making the sacrifices required for Sierra are not. The ace of wands appears in the place of environs. Fire is the element that refers to wands in the Tarot, perhaps fire was involved in the coverup of evidence. Also, it could mean that Sierra is "one" to the south, or being that the card is "one", perhaps she has not traveled off of the property of her home at all. Another search of the property where she lives, and the neighboring property or house on each side,("one" away) and in front and in back, could be helpful and yield clues. The eight of cups reversed comes up in the place of hopes or fears; this is the hope of someone that he/she/they will get away with a crime.

The last card is the Magician, reversed. This is an abuse of power. From this reading, I would be inclined to search the favored "hangouts", or "stops along the daily route" of the older (older than Sierra) male closest to Sierra with any type of authority over her.

Sierra Lamar Update

It's been over a week, and Sierra Lamar, who disappeared intead of getting on the school bus in Freemont, California, and making it to school last Friday, has still not been found. Quite a few people have asked for an update, and I thought about it decided that the best question to ask at this point is "how can Sierra be found?"

This starts with Strength crossed by the Queen of Wands. We have a woman diligently looking for Sierra, who is represented by Strength. This is encouraging.....it gives me hope that there is still time to find her. Some very interesting background about what has happened is the Lovers, reversed. I am very inclined to interpret this, as the Lovers not only literally means "lovers", but choices, as a bad choice that Sierra, herself, made. I also think romance was part of the picture, so I think asking everyone who had a romantic interest in Sierra, no matter how old or young, would be a good place to start. The card representing past causes is Judgement, reversed, affirming that Sierra used bad judgement on this occasion. In possible outcomes, we get the Queen of Pentacles, reversed. This is a selfish woman who does not have Sierra's best interests at heart; I am not quite sure how she fits into the picture just yet. Something that will happen is the ten of pentacles, reversed. The ten of pentacles is an inheritance or a financial gift, and it looks like resources will be spent in many avenues, not all of them fruitful in producing clues, before Sierra is found. So.......we have a message so far that this involves romantic interests, and that the clues had by law enforcement so far may not be the best. An upside down court card, such as this reversed Queen of Pentacles, is often a deliberate attempt at deceit, and I feel that the clues that have been left were left in a way to throw off the investigation. Which really means that questioning Sierra's friends about every, single thing they can all remember and going to every single place she has been for the several months is the best way to proceed. It looks, also, like the Queen of Wands is already beginning to do this.

The first card on the staff is the nine of pentacles, reversed. Upright, this card is resourceful independance. Because the card is reversed, I am going to say that in order to find out who has sustained an unhealthy interest in Sierra, law enforcement will really have to dig deep into more than one person's personal affairs. Also, I think the reversal of this card is telling us that search warrents will be hard to obtain in this case. The next card, describing the environment, is the King of Wands, reversed. This is likely to be an actual person in Sierra's surroundings, and upright he is a married, decent and faithful kind of man. As he falls reversed, I will have to say that while he is still possibly married, he may be separated or divorced, or have been married multiple times. I would expect him to be insecure, hence his interest in teenage girls, and significantly older than Sierra. Also, his reversal tells me that he is not honest, so law enforcement will have to really dig into Sierra's emails and statements from her friends about EVERYONE she has mentioned in order to find him. The next card, in the place of hopes, is the Hanged Man, and as he falls upright, this is a card of sacrifice. The Queen of Wands is willing to make many sacrifices to find Sierra. The final outcome is the Knight of Pentacles, reversed. This is someone who is slowing down the investigation deliberately. He is younger than the King of Wands, and is the one who has been leaving Sierra's personal effects about for others to find. The persistance of the Queen of Wands can win here, if she refuses to give up. Sleuthing through Sierra's past is the best way to find her at this point.

One more thought on this: The reversed Queen of Pentacles could very well be an accomplice or an accessory after the fact, and her actions could be what is represented by the reversed Knight of Pentacles.

Sierra Lamar

Sierra Lamar disappeared, instead of boarding the bus to go to school, one day last week. Her cell phone was found yesterday in a nearby field, but no Sierra. Her scent, and known whereabouts, go cold at the end of her driveway, where she should have gotton on the bus. I will see what the cards can tell me.


The Celtic Cross begins with the Devil, reversed, crossed by the nine of swords. The Devil represents masculine energy, and masculine entrapment of some sort, and the nine of wands represents apprehension and fear. I think this young lady may have had a stalker, or someone openly making threats, and I think the situation worried her. At the base, we have the three of wands, reversed. Someone had clearly brushed off any reasons to take precautions, and had told her not to worry. Upright, this card tells of people working together on new projects; this time, I think it tells of people not listening and paying attention when they should. The King of Pentacles is in the recent past. He is an older, dark complected man who cares about Sierra. The card telling of his future involvement is the seven of pentacles, which is hard work followed by reward. He will do anything it takes to find Sierra. A possibility is Strength, reversed. Already, the investigation has been mildly derailed, somehow. A clue has been left in the wrong place, and has sent searchers in the wrong direction.

The King of cups, reversed, in the place of Sierra's fears. This is an older male who is not honest, and possibly uses or sells illegal drugs. Temperance is in the place of Sierra's environment, telling us that Sierra has every intention of helping in the cause of getting herself found. The Star is in the place of her hopes. She will be open to any creative idea that she thinks will work in order to become free. Another male is in the picture, the Knight of Swords, reversed. He is violent, and time is of the essence. I am hoping that the King of Pentacles will find an incentive that will speak to him. I will follow this up in a couple of days if Sierra is not found.

More impressions: This was not in the reading, but just something I sense: Sierra's phone was thrown away about twenty miles away from where she actually is right now. I think she has heard at least one broadcast featuring her mother's pleas for her return. I also do not think she is very far from home. The location where the cell phone was tossed was deliberately chosen to throw off investigators and delay finding Sierra.
