Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba over ten years ago, and has never been found. She was legally declared dead in 2012, and over the weekend, CNN spoke with a man in Holland who claims he saw Natalee Holloway being chased through a construction site on foot, minutes before what appeared to be her death. So what happened? Lets see what the cards have to say.
This reading starts with the Page of Cups, reversed, crossed by the Queen of Cups. We have an obstacle, or a cover-up, being pushed and promoted by a woman. This woman feels that it is not really her problem, or Aruba's problem, to look for missing tourists. She is not American, and her home and workplace are near water. She is only concerned about the tourist industry, and not Natalee. Beneath this, we have the five of swords, which speaks to violence. We know that Natalee made the acquaintance of a violent person. This is validated by the two of wands, reversed, telling is that someone had an unnatural desire to "dominate" Natalee. The Lovers appears as a possible motive, showing us a struggle between profanity and purity. Also, as a location, it would reveal a destination of lovers, with manicured gardens and trees.
As a person who remains involved in the search for Natalee, we find the Empress. This is the "mother" card in the Tarot, and the message is clearly that Natalee's mother will not give up in the effort to find her.
The eight of swords comes up as the first card on the staff. This is Natalee's current enviroment: she was hidden, possibly somewhere close to plumbing or shallow water. As this could also indicate a small space or a cupboard, or a place that would require digging and cutting in order to expose, it could give credence to the new information about Natalee having been hidden in a building or on a construction site. The three of pentacles comes up next, supporting this. The three of pentacles is the card of the craftsman, particularly in building. I am drawn to want to look under the foundation where a beam is supported, or a brace, with an ornate window or sculpture. Next, we have the King of Cups, reversed, who is just as dishonest as the Queen, who showed up earlier. His money comes from people who travel to Aruba from foreign lands, and he has nothing to gain by cooperating with the investigation, so he has not. He also suspects that there may a murder case in the offing, but does not want to see it tried. It would be bad for business. The last card here is the Page of Wands, reversed. This is bad news and indecision. It would appear, at this writing, that Aruba has no plans to re-open the investigation and find out if the tipster is telling the truth. But.....it also appears that Natalee is hidden away somewhere in a place that is very much like what was described in the recent tip.
