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.
