As the news has reported nationwide, Dr. Teresa Sievers, of Florida, was dead inside of her Fort Myers home in June. Two suspects have been charged, and one of them is, apparently, a friend of Sievers's husband. A reader sent me a comment inquiring about this murder, and I will see what light the cards can shed on this.
The reading begins with the Knight of Wands crossed by the Page of Pentacles. I will assume, since the knight is upside right, that he is a man who is part of the investigation, rather than a bystander or a perpetrator. He is energetic and creative, and leaves no stone unturned. He is crossed by the Page of Pentacles, which is read upside right, here, also. This is either someone who works as an assistant in gathering information, or the information, itself. Some valid information has already been culled by authorities. Beneath this is the nine of pentacles, reversed. This tells of a possible loss of home, security, or friends who are connected to the same. This is the trail that was followed in making the arrest. The card that follows is the three of swords, reversed. This card indicates that there is some treachery, or false information, involved. There has already been at least one disappointment in putting together evidence for this case.
A potential problem shows itself in the form of the Queen of Swords, reversed. When this card falls reversed, a woman who abuses authority is often described. This could be someone in the legal field whose decisions and actions are stalling the investigation, or it could be a female witness who refuses to come forward with information. She has potential influence, but has not succeeded in stopping the truth yet. The eight of swords, reversed, is the next card, and it ties in with the reversed queen's contributions to the situation, yet it is the result of the treachery indicated by the reversed three of wands that we saw earlier. So we know that there are already problems with either testimony or evidence.
The Knight of Cups falls reversed in the place of worries; the person most worried about the outcome of the investigation is a man in his late twenties or early thirties, possibly with light brown hair and hazel eyes. He comes on as sweet and very romantic, but as he falls reversed in this reading, we know that there is some sort of fraud and dishonesty involved, as a result of his presence. The next card, describing the opinion of those involved, is the Queen of Cups, reversed. Here we have the victim, but seen by someone as a villain! As she is represented by cups, along with the Knight of Cups, she and this knight are connected. So yes, investigators appear to be asking the right questions. As a fear, we get the High Priestess, who represents all things hidden. This worries the reversed Knight of Cups very much: what is known by law enforcement that hasn't been revealed? The last card is Strength, reversed. This brings us back to abuse of power, which appears to somehow be a stumbling block. It does appear that law enforcement is looking in the right directions.
