It's been awhile since I have updated my readings about Lisa Irwin, the Kansas City ten month old who disappeared either very late on October 3, 2011, or very early the following day. I went ahead and found a picture of her, but one thing to keep in mind is that children at that age change quickly as they grow, and if Lisa Irwin is still alive, she does not look like she does in this picture anymore.
My question for the Tarot is "why hasn't Lisa Irwin been found?" The first three cards, representing the past, are the King of Swords, the Knight of Cups, reversed, and the Queen of Pentacles, reversed. These are three adults, and it surprises me that no one has talked yet. The King of Swords is an adult male involved in law in some way or another, and the Knight of Cups reversed is a young man, less mature than the King, who is completely dishonest. Upright, he is a messenger who tells the truth, but reversed, this card almost always tells us that a liar is in the picture. Next, we have the Queen of Pentacles, reversed, and she is an emotional, irrational, selfish, not-so-nice, evil woman. These are the people who have helped cover this baby's whereabouts. The King here may not have helped on purpose, but he was either used by the two other individuals, or he accidently made the wrong choice about how to go about solving this case. I think he is a policeman.
The next three cards represent the present, and they are the Emporer, the Queen of Wands, and the six of swords, reversed. This is interesting: the Emporer is the card that tells of the "father" presence or the "father" influence, and I was, and still am, convinced that Lisa's father is the reversed Knight in the above paragraph. So who is this Emporer? Could the reversed Knight be ready to go straight on us, and start cooperating with law enforcement? It might be on the table, somehow. The Queen of Wands is a woman who somehow has an influence here, and she was not a part of the past, but is new on the scene, and new to the case. She is very determined to solve this case. Now; the next card bothers me, but is not a surprise; the six of swords reversed. Upright, this is a card of travel. Reversed, it means the opposite, which also means that Lisa has been in the same place for a very long time.
For the future, we have the three of cups, reversed, the four of swords, and Strength. The three of cups tells of a situation involving too much substance abuse, too much celebrating....excesses in general. So somehow, drinking and substance abuse continue to be an issue in keeping Lisa hidden vs. finding her. The next card is the four of swords, which is a card of rest, or dormancy. I think the message here is that the case has stalled for now, and is "dormant". Strength is the last card, and one of it's literal meanings has to do with trumping "carnal" inclinations, such as substance abuse. Something else that came to me is the picture on that card: a woman petting a tamed lion. I think it is possible that Lisa may be found one day by someone walking a dog, or chasing down a pet cat! Completely by accident!
My last question was "where is Lisa?", and I drew the Lovers, reversed. This card has to do with couples, choices, and water is also a symbol on this card. I think it is directing us to look at all three of those things. A couple who made a terrible choice, and water as part of the picture, somehow.
