Dylan Redwine

Dylan Redwine, of Colorado, was last seen a week ago, at his father's home near Durango, Colorado. He was supposed to visit his father for the Thanksgiving holiday. There is now a search in progress for him. My question is, what happened to Dylan, and where is he?

We start with the ten of cups, reversed, crossed by the four of wands. This gives a message of unhappiness in the home, crossed by some sort of happy event, or haven. Beneath this, we have the hierophant, who represents tradition. This could either be a minister, counselor, priest or mentor of some sort, whose guidance had helped Dylan in the past. Or it could be an institution representing tradition, such as a church or a school that had a positive effect on Dylan. Either way, it was something Dylan wanted back. Also in the past, we have the Page of Wands, which is usually a message of some kind, but in this reading, I think it represents Dylan. I also think something he had tried to tell others in his situation was not properly heard. The next card, in the place of things that have not yet come to pass, is the Empress, which is the "mother" card in the Tarot. She is also the very best result here, and the very best person for Dylan right now. The next card, in the place of things that either will happen or are happening, is Judgement, reversed, which tells of separation and fear. Sometimes it even speaks of fear of death. There is something outside of Dylan's control right now, separating him from where he wants to be, and from where he is safe. I do not believe he ran away.

In the place of fears, we find this reinforced by the two of wands, reversed, telling us of betrayals, fear, domination, and the fear of being overpowered. In the place of environment, we find the Moon, which, in this reading, speaks of things hidden or disguised, and of deception. Wherever Dylan is, he is hidden, and I think water is somehow part of the picture. For a direction, this card points us west. The eight of cups, reversed, is in the place of Dylan's hopes; this tells me that if Dylan could reverse the choice he made that got him into this situation, he would do so. And then we have the Page of Swords, as the final outcome, as another young person who is watching everyone search. For good or for ill, this person knows where Dylan is, yet has not come forward. His numeric value is eleven, and his direction would be east. Swords occasionally tells us of cyber communications.

My sense of this is that Dylan is alive.......I sincerely hope I am right. I will keep praying for his safe return, and I will come back to this if he is not home within a few days.

What Happened To Lisa Irwin Before She Disappeared?

Lisa Irwin, the little girl who was reported missing on October 4, 2011, and who has not been found. The entire Midwest would love to hear some positive news about her whereabouts, and over the weekend, a question came to this blog wanting the Tarot to reveal whether little Lisa is dead or alive. Sometimes, this is a difficult question for the Tarot to answer, as Lisa can, indeed, be deceased, yet still exist somewhere, going about her karma, rebirth, growth, and maturity on another plane. Anyone with a belief in reincarnation, yet getting the message that this little girl is alive, would have to determine whether she is alive as Lisa Irwin, or has moved on and been reborn. I will put the question to the Tarot, and see what I get. The way I have decided to ask this question is: what, exactly, happened to Lisa Irwin before she went missing, and did it cause her to go missing?

The reading starts with Strength crossed by the six of wands. Strength is Spirit overcoming physical matter. The six of wands is victory, and success after overcoming adversities and odds. This, I believe, refers to Lisa's birth in a blended family that had a certain number of challenges. Her birth was welcomed and considered a blessing. The ace of pentacles founds this. There was also an opportunity to become materially better off, for this family. And this appears to be the end of the good news. In events that passed recently before Lisa's disappearance, the cards give us the ten of wands, reversed. This is an abuse of power. The card is followed by the eight of wands, reversed, which tells of jealousy. Upside right, this card is a card of miracles, passion, and impossible dreams coming true, reversed, it is jealousy; almost wanting to send away that which was once a blessing. Next, we see the three of cups, reversed. This is an excess of physical enjoyment. This card appears in the readings of practicing alcoholics and addicts quite often. As Lisa was not old enough to abuse drugs or drink, I can only conclude that it refers to the actions of those around her.

The staff begins with the eight of cups. Here, we have someone who wanted something, got it, but then was not happy with it. It could mean two different things, here. It could mean that Lisa's parents were not as happy with parenting as they thought they would be, and found a way to stop parenting, or it could mean that Lisa's spirit was not satisfied with her surroundings here in this life, and decided not to stay. My personal opinion is that it means both, but; of course, proving it would require the recovery of Lisa. The card that came up describing Lisa's surroundings is Justice, reversed. This simply means that justice has not been done, and someone has deliberately perverted justice and derailed it. In my experience, this card does not describe accidental injustice, but deliberate. The next card, in the place of hopes, is the King of Pentacles, only he is reversed, so he is not someone who is kindly disposed toward Justice, or any justice for Lisa. The final outcome is the four of wands, which is a card of refuge, harvest, and perfected work, and I think that is the desire of the reversed King, here.

To sum this up, it does not look to me as if Lisa is still with us physically, but as I tell everyone who tells me otherwise, I hope I am wrong. Four cards here were from the suit of wands, which goes hand in hand with fire, and I think fire may have played a direct role in the destruction of evidence, whether Lisa is alive or not, and two cards were from the suit of cups, which is water. Fire is that spark of passion we call Life, and water nourishes it, only the water in this reading was reversed. Water can also drown Life. But there are no cards of violence, so if Lisa is deceased, it was not a violent death. The four of wands, in most Tarot decks, has a picture of a couple dancing at a fair or in a garden, and it may be telling us where Lisa can be found.
