Some recently asked me to do a reading about whether or not there would be an arrest in the case of missing Lisa Irwin, who was reported missing from her Kansas City, Missouri home on Oct. 4, 2011. Lisa was ten months old at that time, she would be almost two years ol now. There have been no arrests, and the only solid clue in this case was a hit by a cadaver dog in the bedroom of the home where she went missing.
This begins with the Devil, crossed by the seven of cups. This is domination of matter over spirit, and it is crossed by too many different directions and vague stories. Someone has deliberately shifted the focus away from actually finding Lisa from the very beginning. For background, we get the four of cups, reversed, which is good news, as an answer to this question. It means that someone involved in the investigation is willing to take a new approach. Matters moving into the past here are represented by the six of pentacles, reversed, which speaks to dishonest dealings involving money, and money gotton through very questionable means. The six of wands appears as something that can happen, and this card refers to good news. It can also mean finding something that has been lost. Unfortunately, an element that is already very much a part of this situation is Justice, reversed. Not only has someone involved lied, but right now, the investigation is off balence. It seems there the effort to find Lisa has evaporated into an effort to prosecute one person, and ignore the accomplices and accomplices after the fact.
In the place of fears, we have the ace of wands. The ace of wands here represents Lisa being found, and the good news of justice being carried out, and we find it as a fear, so I am going to assume that this represents the mindset of the perpetrator. The next card, representing environment, is Death, reversed. Nothing has changed for Lisa. She has been in the same place for quite some time. As a hope, we have Strength. This tells us that the perpetrator is going to hold out as long as he/she can. And as a final outcome, we have the Page of Swords, reversed. This can be a person, possibly a "snitch", who is waiting for his or her own convenience to come forward, or it can be an unforseen event that is not favorable to the whoever last saw Lisa Irwin alive.
Sadly, I do not see an arrest in this reading anytime soon. The tarot is notorius for not giving the best time frames, but as the six of wands did appear as a possibility, perhaps about six months. Hopefully sooner....maybe six weeks.
