What Happened To Aundria Bowman?

We begin with the ten of cups, reversed, crossed by the Queen of Pentacles, which
is also read reversed, here. This is a message of unhappiness at home, involving an
adult female. Lack of trust and neglected responsibilities are factors with this woman.

Beneath this we have the six of cups, which is the card of childhood memories. This
gives us a picture of a problem that actually began at the childhood home. Next, and
also preceeding the situation, we have the seven of swords, reversed. This is where
someone has taken matters into his or her own hands, and made a decision and acted
on it, for good or for ill.

The next card, explaining why Aundria is missing, is Temperance, reversed, suggesting
that Aundria and one or more family members were somehow not a good combination.
There is also a suggestion of murky, shallow water connected here, when this card falls
reversed. After this, we get the Sun, reversed. which, in this case, speaks of broken
engagements and vioded contracts. Something to keep in mind is that this is also an
"outside" card.

The Hierophant, reversed, appears in the place of fears. This was a fear of new ideas
and of an inability to control others, In a nutshell, there was fear on the part of someone
in Aundria's life of not being able to control Aundria. Following this, in the place of
environment, we have the seven of cups, reversed. Someone who knew how to impose
his or her will on others made sure Aundria disappeared. There is also a reiteration of the
suggestion of shallow water on this card. Next, we have the ten of wands, reversed. There
was some sort of treachery in the situation, and there was a fear of civil litigation. Aundria
somehow created a legal risk to the person who made her disappear. The last card is the
seven of pentacles. This is the card of waiting for the harvest; the fruit has yet to ripen on
the tree. So we should look for someone who had something material to gain from this
child's disappearance. This is also the third "seven" that has appeared in the reading. Look
for "seven" to be a significant number in some way: I think it will be a geographic factor,
such as an address or the number of miles from where Aundria was last seen, or the number
of hours it takes to drive to that place. As the seven of pentacles is a card of waiting for the
harvest, the material gain was not immediate, but happened later.

The reversed seven of swords suggests that Aundria died of lack of oxygen, as if she had been
strangled. Sometimes, the Sun in reversal suggests cloudiness; perhaps the word "cloud" in
prominent in the name of the place she can be found, or the concept of clouded sunshine.

I always hope I am wrong, or that my interpretation of the cards is incorrect whenever I get
an answer like this from the Tarot. I hope Aundria is found soon.

Where Is Melissa Lee Brannen?

Melissa Lee Brannen was last seen on December 3, 1989 in Lorton, Virginia, when she was five years old.  She had been at a holiday party held for residents of Woodside Apartments. A man named Caleb Hughes was found guilty of kidnapping Melissa, and while some very compelling evidence was found connecting him to her disappearance, she has never been found.

We begin with the two of cups, reversed, crossed by the Chariot, which is also read reversed here, as a foundation.  This refers to a very violent passion, followed up with nowhere to go; a description of some very decadent and forceful desires. The King of Cups is at the base; this is an adult male, who is sensitive and professional. Since he falls upside right, I will assume that he is kindly disposed toward Melissa, and is trying to find her. Next, also in the past, is the King of Pentacles, reversed. This is another adult male, and as he falls reversed, I must label him part of the problem, rather than part of the solution. When the King of Pentacles comes up reversed in a reading, it refers to man who abuses resources and other people, and abuses any authority granted him, as well. Look for this man to have had dark hair and eyes in 1989. 

In the realm of possibilities, we have the eight of pentacles. Generally, this card depicts a workplace or an apprenticeship position, but this hardly seems to fit the bill as an answer to where a little girl ended up after she went missing. It leads me to ponder whether or not the workplace of the King of Pentacles was properly searched. As it is in "possibilities" rather than actualities, I would be inclined to advise searching it again. The nine of cups, reversed, comes up next. This card describes a home with a lot of resources, and; sure enough, the suspect's home did turn up a lot of clues; but as the card falls reversed, all that was found was evidence, not Melissa. 

The first card on the staff is the Hierophant, reversed. The Hierophant is all about orthodoxy and order, endorsing all that is socially approved. As he falls reversed here, the suggestion is to follow a mode that is not as traditional within the usual comfort zones, but to think and look "outside" of the box. In the place of environment, we have the Sun, reversed. This gives us an outside location, possibly a garden or an embankment with a wall. This is a place that is readily visible to the four "kingdoms" of nature: mineral, vegetable, animal, and human. It was once well manicured, but has not been maintained. As we get the number XIX from the sun, nineteen miles to the north or northwest is symbolized. We deal also with the number ten in the Wheel of Fortune, which comes up next, reversed. The symbolism on this card also deals with four "corners", or realities, if you will. In this case, we have Taurus the Bull, showing us earth, Leo the Lion, representing fire, Scorpio's eagle for water, and the Aquarian angel for air. Somehow, this symbolism plays a role in the location of Melissa. Four elements; four corners. The number of the Wheel of Fortune is X, so ten is key, but here, I think it is a placeholder or a descriptive number, such as part of an address or name. The final card is the ten of pentacles, which is also reversed. This card not only speaks of monetary loss when it falls reversed, but of a loss of family honor, as well. Someone who could help with Melissa's location has kept silent for the sake of "family honor", and has kept the secret for all these years! 

Because of the "earth" references, I expect that Melissa was buried, somewhere between ten and twenty miles to the north of where she was last seen. Anyone with information about this should call the Fairfax County Police in Virginia; 703-246-7800.

Brandon Victor Swanson

Brandon Victor Swanson disappeared after leaving the home of a friend in Marshall, Minnesota. His car was found near Taunton, Minnesota. After experiencing car problems, he spoke briefly with his father via cell phone, which is how his car was located, but no one can find Brandon. Someone asked me if I would do a reading for him, so I will give it my best.

This reading begins with the Knight of Cups, reversed, crossed by the two of pentacles, which is also read reversed, here. When the Knight of Cups falls reversed, there is always trickery involved, as this is usually an untrustworthy man in his early twenties. His presence is followed up by the reversed two of pentacles, which points to forced, or simulated calm. At face value, it looks as if Brandon was carjacked and told to tell his father he was okay, when he really wasn't. But let's look further.

Another court card appears to lend some background information; the King of Pentacles, reversed. This would be a man who is older than the Knight of Cups, and I would expect him to have darker hair than the Knight of Cups and a darker complexion. He falls reversed here, and since his suit is pentacles, this points to a man who misuses his assets and, possibly, gambles. So we have two unknown people who might know what happened to Brandon.

The next card is also a court card; it is the King of Cups. As this card falls upside right, meaning that he is friend, not foe; I am inclined to identify him as Brandon's father. He is the last known person to have spoken with Brandon. This is followed by the Page of Pentacles, reversed. This leads me to believe that Brandon did not simply "disappear"; there was foul play involved. This page heralds bad news, and often theft, when reversed. Temperance comes up next; reiterating the message of competing interests and bad combinations. I would also venture a guess that Brandon either saw or heard something that could have compromised one or both of the men, the knight and the king.

The first card on the staff, describing problems connected to finding Brandon, is the seven of wands. This card tells of things that are guarded; secrets, homes, property, the like. The message here is that Brandon has not been found because he is either on private property, or somewhere bordering private property. Someone has deliberately impeded the search. The next card, showing environment, is Justice. This shows us that law enforcement still has an interest in finding Brandon, and if outworn ideas are scrapped in favor of trying new, Brandon can and will be found. It is quite likely that this will involve a search warrant, however. This is followed by the six of swords, which is a card of travel. The six of swords has appeared in the place of desires, and is a wish on the part of someone involved. The nine of pentacles is the last card, and it is a card of solitary enjoyment of property. This supports what we have seen in the seven of wands, by which we were told that private property and the need for a search warrant is pertinent. It is also a suggestion to look near or in a garden or flowerbed, or a small vegetable garden, near a house.

The pentacles and cups in this reading take us north and west, as directions. Fourteen is the number of the Temperance card; that is a likely number miles that should be covered. I found myself drawn to the small sun on the Temperance card; "sun" may be an actual, physical symbol here, such as part of the name of road or a place. Perhaps the name of a town that is somehow sun-related, or the name of a business. Somehow, this symbol is meant to give us a clue.

I always wish I had better news when I do a reading like this one. I will keep hoping for the best.

Cooper Harris Dies In A Hot Car

Can you do a reading on the circumstances around the death of Cooper Harris, the twenty-two month old who died after being locked in a car for 7 hours?

This is a bit unusual, since so much of the case and background is already known, but I will see what the cards say. This is a nine card spread, telling us past, present, and future. To my commentor, I have added a link to your question for anyone wishing to see some the published media on this case. 

The first three cards here are the Fool, Justice, and the Hanged Man, reversed. The Fool often represents opportunity, but considering the nature of the question, I think he is a blunt reference to the type of choice made by Cooper's father. Clearly, a level of responsibility was needed and not met. Justice falls upside right, next. This does not mean that the death was just, but considering that it is followed by the reversed hanged man, I think it is describing a state of mind: someone directly involved felt "justified" somehow, for the actions taken. When the Hanged man falls reversed, he tells of unwillingness to sacrifice or balance the needs of others against one's desires, or the inability to take responsibility. Justice is also telling us that the direct involvement of law enforcement is appropriate here, because someone knew better, but did not want to go to the trouble it would have taken to be responsible.

The next three cards are the six of cups, the six of wands, and the King of Wands, reversed. The six of cups is a card of memories, often of childhood. The six of swords, on a very basic level, is travel. When the King of Wands falls reversed, we see a man who is unyielding and often impatient, and the message here is that this King did not feel he had time for a child's transportation on this occasion, and felt angry about it. It's very direct and very sad. 

The last three cards are the four of pentacles, reversed, the two of swords, and the Sun. The four of pentacles refers to wasted money and resources, connected to this case. The two of swords is a temporary agreement for more time to make a decision about this case, and the Sun is a double reference. It tells us that yes, Cooper died of hyperthermia after being left in a hot car, in the sun, but it also tells us that there will be a quick conclusion to this matter, despite the stalemate in the two of swords. 

I guess it bears repeating.....NEVER leave a child or an animal in a hot car.

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.

Jessica Ridgeway

Jessica Ridgeway disappeared this past Friday. She never got on the bus to go to school, and was not seen by any of her schoolmates Friday morning. She disappeared from Westminster, Colorado, and the number to call is anyone sees her is 303-658-4336.

This reading starts with the King of Pentacles, reversed, crossed by the Hanged Man. There is a man who uses money and material resources to manipulate others in this picture. And he has everything in Jessica's situation connected to himself at a standstill. The ace of wands, a new beginning, is the part of the background that made Jessica's disappearance advantageous for him. Also in the background is the Tower, suggesting an overthrow of a comfortable lifestyle and possible bankruptcy. As a strong possibility, we get the Page of Pentacles, reversed. This augers unfavorable news about Jessica, but nothing that has been stated or heard yet. As an event that will take place, the two of cups, reversed appears. This foretells a divorce or the breakup of a relationship, and somehow, Jessica has become a casaulty of it.
In the place of fears, we have the seven of pentacles, reversed. I strongly believe that this is a fear of the perpetrator; and that he is worried about losing everything that he, personally, has worked for. In the place of environment, we have the Emperor, reversed, lending, once again, a masculine influence in this. The Emperor is the "father" card when he is upright, reversed, he speaks to an immature, irresponsible male influence. In the place of hopes, we have the nine of cups, reversed. There is a chance that overindulgence in alcohol or drugs will cause this man to make the mistake that will get him caught. The final outcome is the Sun, which is an excellent card, reassuring us that at this moment, things can be worked out to the satisfaction of everyone concerned. So I would cautously venture Jessica should be found safely. Cautously.....I do not like the reversed two of cups or the reversed Page of Pentacles. The two of cups, because the card deals with separations; and the reversed page, because he deals in bad news.
For a direction to start searching, I would be inclined to look "one" to the north, and then "two" to the east. Cups generally point west, but the two of cups is reversed, so it seems prudent to interpret this as east, since misleading and deception are already part of the picture. Perhaps "one" state, then "two" states.  I will follow this up a few days, if Jessica is not found.

Ayla Reynolds

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

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

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

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