Virginia Welch

Virginia Welch, of Roanoke, has not been seen since July of 1982, when she was last seen alive by her roommate. In 1982, there were no cell phones or email, and all other traceable clues of her to day life stopped at that point, in 1982. We will see if the Tarot can shed any light on her situation.

We have a basis of the Queen of Swords, crossed by the Knight of Cups. These are two people, a man and a woman. The woman was an adult in 1982, and because she falls upright, I will assume she means Virginia no harm. If this queen is not the roommate, she may have actually seen Virginia after her roommate saw her; if not, her testimony is more relevant. The Knight of Cups is a young man who distracted Virginia and the Queen of Swords with a plan or a new idea......a plan that had not been properly researched.....and that was the end of the conversation. For some preceding background, we find the Page of Wands, reversed, which I think is not a person in this reading, but the whole situation......this page in reversal represents bad news, unplanned catastrophe, and indecision. There was a problem with Virginia acting against her own better judgment in connection to the Knight of Cups.

Behind this, we find Justice. Justice is upside something important happened that actually had a well balanced start. But then, Justice is immediately followed by the reversed Page of Cups. This is connected to the knight, and indicates deception. So far, it is starting to look as if Virginia may have stumbled into a situation involving crime, or police matters, and someone hiding information determined that Virginia was a threat. Something else to note is that the number of the Justice card is eleven. Perhaps that related to location, or the name or part of an address or description of a location. The next card is the three of pentacles. This is a completely different direction than the one we have followed via the other cards: matters connected to Virginia stop, and the Knight of Cups moves on. His job is described here in this card....he was either in construction or a job connected to driving from one site to another. As a location for Virginia, this would indicate near someone's workplace, or near her own workplace. Pentacles are "earth" cards, but before we determine that she has been buried, lets see what the other cards tell us.

The first card on the staff is the Hierophant. Virginia did not always want to conform to mainstream
ideals, and this was part of the reason she disappeared. I am almost seeing an effort to "go against the grain" at times. In the place of environment, the Star comes up. This is a card of hope and enlightenment, but as it relates to location, it is interesting to note that Roanoke is called the "Star City of the South". Could she still be in Roanoke? Rivers and water are also suggested on this card, and possibly boats and places where two bodies of water meet. The three of cups appears to tell us that there was a difference of opinion that made the friendship between Virginia and the Knight of Cups a bad "political" choice, meaning that she could not stay associated with her and still keep all of his other friends. It also points to an "air'related" death, possibly strangulation or suffocation. The reading ends with the six of cups, looking back on past relationships and childhood, but not making new memories. This is sad, and I wish this reading gave us something happier. Pictured to the left is the Roanoke Star, on Mill Mountain in Roanoke, Virginia.

What Happened To Sarah And Jacob Hoggle?

Sarah and Jacob Hoggle are both missing from Montgomery County, Maryland. Jacob was last seen with his mother, Catherine Hoggle, on Sunday, September 8, and Sarah was last seen with her mother the following day. Catherine is now in jail, refusing to reveal the whereabouts of both children, so I will see what the Tarot has to say. 

We start with a base consisting of the nine of wands crossed by the Magician, only the Magician is reversed in this case, so his energies are not helpful. The nine of wands indicates that the person who began this course of events, Catherine, was patiently waiting for the right time. This was planned. When we see the Magician reversed, we know to look for abuses of power, and abusive behavior that is rooted in weakness and sometimes, passive aggressiveness. The eight of cups is beneath this, as a contributing factor. This card describes a situation in which one is not happy with choices made or wages earned, after thinking one would be. Next, we have Strength, reversed, which is, once again, telling us that power was abused, only this time, it refers mainly to physical power. So we have a person who felt disinterested in a situation or relationship because she felt that her own choices were overridden or ignored, and power had somehow been abused against her by someone, and we see it manifested again, in her behavior. Somehow, the children are not appearing as anything but pawns to the main player.

A possibility is described by the Knight of Wands, who is a man between the ages of twenty-two and about forty who is capable of "thinking outside the box" at times like this. He is someone who can gather information and communicate, and he somehow has input. Also, the Hermit appears, showing the ongoing search for these children. As a location, this card often indicates hilly terrain, with footpaths. The Hermit's time of day is evening.

In the place of emotional actions and needs, we have the six of pentacles. This message is clear; someone will have to bargain and barter in order to get the necessary information to find these children quickly. Even so, there is still a lack of perception in the part of the main player, here, concerning the importance of finding Jacob and Sarah. In the place of environment, we have the Page of Pentacles, which is the most encouraging card in this reading. This card can portend a young person who enjoys studying and learning, yet it also often tells of important messages. So it appears that a valid message or tip finally comes in. The next card, in the place of desires, is the seven of cups. This is often a card of dreams, or ideas that have not been developed into practical, workable plans. But there is another possibility: as this card is a water card, and as there is also a Seven Locks Road, near the Potomac River, in that part of Montgomery County, Maryland, perhaps it should also be searched. The last card is the Knight of Cups, reversed. Cups are symbolic of water, and when this knight falls reversed, one can also expect deceit and trickery. I honestly think this relates mostly to the testimony given by the mother, so far. I also think the seven of cups may have a triple meaning here, not only telling us about watery locations and half baked plans, but about delusions held by the mother as fact. Sadly, I do not think there will be a happy ending to all this, although I always hope I am wrong about this type of conclusion.

Kara Kopetsky

Kara Kopetsky, of Belton, Missouri, was last seen at her school on May 4, 2007. She was initially listed as a runaway by law enforcement, but it has been seven awfully long time for a runaway to stay hidden. So I will put the obvious questions to the Tarot.

We begin with the seven of swords, reversed, crossed by the eight of swords. The seven of swords generally denotes a theft, or an effort that is incomplete due to lack of ability or resources....the subject is attempting to take or do something he or she does not have a right to take or do. But here, it is reversed, but crossed by the eight of swords, a card of entrapment and restraint. What this gives us is a picture of someone who THOUGHT he or she could either take or get away with something, but actually couldn't. It was tried, though. The background for this is the King of Wands, who is an unyielding older male whose advice should have been followed, and the six of cups, a card of childhood and memories. So a deeper picture of a conflict here has to do with being a child vs. being an adult, and being recognized as an adult. Somehow, and I am not sure where this fits.....a yellow cat seems to be part of the scenario.

Above this, we have the Empress, who is the mother in this situation. Kara's mother is still looking for her, and will not stop until Kara is found. And a future event is Judgement, which is a renewal of search efforts for some reason, possibly an overlooked clue suddenly come to light. As a physical location and event, this card would literally depict an object suddenly being revealed in water deep enough for hidden objects, such as a lake or a reservoir. The swords point us east, yet not east.....once again, the seven is reversed. I would expect the answer to lead us somewhere rather close to where Kara was last seen, within thirty miles. 

The Emperor appears at the base of the staff; he is a male with authority in this case, and if not Kara's father, has an air of fatherly authority. He is upside right, so I will assume he is kindly disposed toward Kara, and looking for her, as is her mother. The six of pentacles appears in the place of environment, lending an element of "you get what you pay for", or "give and take" to this situation. Did someone perceive Kara as owing money? Was some sort of blackmail involved here? This card points to a trade or an exchange as having taken place between Kara and someone immediately before she disappeared. The next card is a card of regret: the five of cups. The regret is not on Kara's part, however; it is on the part of the last person to see her. While this person would be a man, I am not seeing a romantic relationship. In fact, the nature of the acquaintance between Kara and this person may have been the source of tension between Kara and the King of Wands. But the five of cups speaks to regret and loss, things that were not intended. It is also another water card. The last card we have is the Moon. The Moon is often psychic knowledge, but can also indicate deception and can tie into the aspect of that which is hidden by the High Priestess. We can be quite certain that Kara probably did not run away from home, but encountered some very bad circumstances that were covered up and well hidden. As a physical location, the Moon is also a watery card, specifically in a place where the reflection of the moon can be seen on the water. 

I wish this reading could have given us a more positive outlook. I always advise not to ever give up or stop looking for a missing person until he or she is found.

Using Divination For Locations

Some asked me this question, in relation to Sierra Lamar, and it deserved more than just a short answer, so I got longwinded and wrote an entire post about it! Here's the question: "Can u pinpoint a high area of interest where her body is? Juli do u ever use forsenic astrology or look at other site as reference?"

Once in awhile I look at charts to hone in on a location, event, or person, but forensic astrology is still in it's infancy......inasmuch as interpretations go, anyway......and it seems to be more useful to me in determination of specific elements, rather than exact spots. By that I mean that I would expect a chart for that day to tell me what type of situation Sierra ended up in, and with whom. The cards actually serve me better in terms of exact locations, and in this case a card that we keep seeing, in almost every reading I have done for Sierra, is the four of wands. Other cards that have come up more than once are the eight of swords and the six of cups. The four of wands is a card of celebrations and happy occasions, and as a location it would describe a park or a place where people would gather for family parties. If this card were to point in a direction, it would be slightly to the south, as wands are fire, and the direction of fire is south.

Another card that shows itself frequently in these readings is the eight of swords. Most decks picture the eight of swords with a literal "damsel in distress" trapped in shallow water, surrounded by eight swords. The meaning of this card is a state of having been physically or mentally "trapped" in some way, and often it appears in readings about missing persons to tell us that the missing person, or important clues, can be found in shallow water. Finding such clues is almost never easy, however; as there is a almost always a problem with being "stuck". East is the direction that swords would take us, yet as the card is a card of being trapped or stuck, I would not expect the subject to move very far. So we have a general direction of southeast, but not very far from the general area from where Sierra disappeared.

To look at the six of cups, which we have also seen more than once in readings for Sierra, we get a picture of children playing. Cups represent water, which brings water back into the answer. Not deep water; a pond, shallow lake, creek, or small river. Situational meanings for this card usually include memories and childhood, but when it describes a location it is often an park, playground, or school. I would lean toward a park here because of all the water symbolism we have already seen, and I would expect the park or recreational area to have water for fishing or boating. A reservoir is also a possibility. Cups and water take us west, which brings up the possibility that Sierra's assailant took her one direction, water and elements may have taken her another. Other cards that have come up as clues have been the three of pentacles, the ace of pentacles, and the ten of pentacles, although the ten is almost always reversed. Pentacles point north, but in this case, I think they are telling us that the suspect's workplace either has clues, or that he did not move to far from work for most of his activities.

Another aspect of this is the court cards, which tell us about others involved, and this is where forensic astrology is also often helpful. There has been an adult female referenced in many of the readings for Sierra, and I honestly believe that at least one or two other people know more about Sierra's case than they have let on. This is also why I think Sierra will be found; I think a witness after the fact, or someone who knows a lot about the case will be able to put the information together and find her.

Teleka Patrick

Teleka Patrick has been missing from Michigan, since December 5 of 2013. She had recently graduated from medical school, and was reported missing when she did not show up for work. Her car was later found in Indiana, but no sign of her. There has also reportedly been no activity in her bank account and no email or social network activity. 

To the question of what happened to her and where; this is what the cards have to say. The reading begins with the ace of wands crossed by the Chariot. The ace is a new beginning or a new enterprise. Following this new beginning provided the circumstances her to disappear. The chariot provides a vehicle for following our dreams, or sometimes on mundane levels as a simple car; but in this case, something misfired. The promise represented by the ace of wands cancelled out by the Chariot getting pulled in two different directions. The seven of cups appears reversed beneath this, indicating that there was an agreement or a plan in the beginning.

The three of swords appears as one of the last things that happened before Teleka disappeared. This card, when upside right, often tells us about lovers' quarrels and break-ups. It also appears quite often in readings concerning divorce, but Teleka was not married. We can safely assume that an emotional disagreement took place between Teleka and someone else. The Hermit appears as a possible result of these events, and he is usually seeking wisdom and answers. As he is in the position of what should have happened, it looks as if Teleka should have done more research about the person or persons of her acquaintance, or about her new ventures. I feel that someone actually suggested more research and information, too. The next card we see is the two of swords, which represents a grudging compromise, or a stalemate. 

In the place of fears, we see the Queen of Cups. This is a sensitive, emotional woman. She is using her heart as her guide. In the place of environment, we have the ten of cups, which is a card describing balence, success, happy family environment, and friendship. This element is part of her current whereabouts. In the place of hopes, the five of cups appears. So far, there has been no direct suggestion that this woman is no longer with us, but the five of cups upside right hints strongly at regret. It is followed by the King of Swords, reversed, whose conflict with the Queen of Cups was cruel and unexpected. He is the person who can tell us more about what happened to Teleka. As he is represented by Swords, he could be in law enforcement or the legal profession......if he is in medicine, I would expect him to be more involved in something that is as non-personal as possible, as he would lack a bedside manner.

Water is strongly suggested as a location in this reading. There are four cards from the suit of cups, and three from swords. Cups are water, swords are air, but the two of swords in the Ryder Waite deck has a sea in the background, representing temporarily stilled emotions. Because of all of these water references, I am inclined to say water has a lot to do with Teleka's current location. The best advice for finding her in this reading is the Hermit, and his advice to Teleka to slow down, check references, and learn more. Check with everyone who may have spoken with her about personal matters during the week or so before her disappearance. Someone who spoke with her can offer clues, but does not realize it yet.

Ashley Freeman And Laura Bible

Ashley Freeman and Laura Bible allegedly spent a night, in December of 1999, in a trailer that burned down, but only the bodies of Ashley's parents were found, not the two girls, who were sixteen at the time of the fire. Since then, no one has been able to locate them, despite the occasional rumor.
For the basis, we have the eight of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the three of pentacles. This is a clear message of lack of ability in a trade or line of employment. But what could that possibly have to do with the disappearance of two teenage girls? As a bit of background and as a possible underlying reason for the whole situation, fire and all, we have the Tower, reversed. The tower usually involves karma and involuntary repayment of karmic debt, but as the card falls reversed, I will say that this time, it was man-made; more like vengeance than anything cosmically deserved by anyone here. This is followed by the two of cups, the only card representing Ashley and Laura. They, somehow, were unintended "victims". The five of wands follows this, and this card usually describes games and runaround, the type of "beating around the bush" one gets from someone who has no intentions of honesty. And......honesty was somehow lacking after this fire. This is followed by the five of swords, which is deliberately applied violence and revenge. Also lies and cover-up. Force was the only way for someone to win a dispute, and that is what this whole situation was all about.
The staff contains four court cards, which makes this a very unusual reading. These are four different people who were involved in this matter. In the place of fears, we have the Knight of Swords. Often, he is a violent person, or a violent event; but in this case, he is a person. Court cards in the suit of swords are often law enforcement, and this man was in his thirties or early forties in 1999. The reports filed about this fire and the victims is represented by the King of Cups, reversed. This king is usually someone who lies when he falls reversed, and he has a lot of authority. He relates his spin on this matter directly to any investigators and to the public. Getting even worse, we have the Knight of Cups next. He is also dishonest when reversed, and he is in the place of hopes and fears, which means that while he is somewhat younger than the King of Cups, he successfully wielded a certain amount of fear over the king, and the king spun this story the way the knight wanted it spun. The final card is the King of Swords, who is often law enforcement, or a lawyer or judge. He is upside right, but he is at odds with the King of Cups about the investigation of the fire. For reasons that are not known, he has gone along with what the other men wished.
Grrrr....from all appearances, and according to this reading, it looks as if the fire was deliberate, and aimed at the two adults in the house, not the girls. In the scenario given by the reading, the Ashley and Laura were unintended victims of the fire. There is no card here that tells me that they escaped; and I do not believe they ever got out alive. It looks as if someone is covering the fact that they were in the house when the house burned down. Perhaps the investigation should be reopened.

Will Sierra Lamar's Case Ever Be Resolved?

Sierra Lamar went missing in March of 2012, and it has been almost two years with no answers. A suspect has been charged, but not tried. His court dates continue to get continued. So will her case ever be solved?

Three cards here indicate the search and investigation in the past: the ace of cups, the Hierophant, and the Queen of Cups. Water has always come up in readings I have done in the past, connected to this case, and continues to do so. The element of the suit of cups is water, and the ace is often a river. The Hierophant is tradition, and traditional search methods have been used, albeit unsuccessfully. The justice system is another traditional "system" that is being relied upon, even though the defendant has not responded in the manner expected by investigators and the prosecution. There is also a woman connected to the investigation, showing up in this reading as the Queen of Cups. She has intuitively put together quite a few pieces of the puzzle, already. She would like to find Sierra before insisting upon moving forward in court.

The three cards I pulled for the present are the nine of pentacles, the King of Wands, and the Magician. One of the meanings of the nine of pentacles is completion of a project, and this meaning seems to fit my question about resolution to the case better than any other possible meanings this card has, even though the case has not been solved. The King of Wands is someone male who is also connected to the investigation, and has been since the beginning. He gets some information that comes as a surprise, follows up on it, and turns to the Magician, who is an expert at gathering and analyzing evidence. At this point, I should state the obvious; these cards definitely want to discuss the resolution of finding Sierra and bringing closure to those who love her, rather than prosecution. As the Magician is upside right, I think someone may actually bring him some actual evidence to work with.

The future shows us the six of cups, the High Priestess, and the four of swords, reversed. The six of cups is looking back at the past. Places that have been searched, places the defendant and Sierra have both visited, and; once again, water. A garden with water, a place that somehow welcomes children...yet looks to the pasts of the individuals involved in the case. The High Priestess also deals with water, but in a different way.....she is the subconscious. She also represents things that are hidden. As a physical location, she could also represent a church dedicated to a female saint. The four of swords reversed is renewed activity, successful renewed activity, but with a bit of social unrest. I don't think that finding Sierra, all of the evidence, and a successful prosecution is going to lay this case to rest peacefully. There will be a lot of outcry.

All of the water symbolism points us in a slightly westward direction, and other symbols that jump out at me from the cards are a lake, a river, a garden, a hand, and children playing...ala the six of cups. As unbelievable as it seems, I do see this case resolved one day, sooner than anyone thinks.

Lorrin Whitehead

Lorrin Whitehead, forty-three, pictured to the left, was last seen in February of this year, in Bannockburn, Victoria. She had been grocery shopping for her family. There has been no activity in her bank account, which is always a reason for concern, and she is also diabetic. 

The basis is Temperance crossed by the four of pentacles. Temperance is good management with time and resources, but the four of pentacles crossing it shows a challenge in that area, but what could that possibly have to do with Lorrin Whitehead's disappearance? Below this, we have the ten of swords, which is not a good card in a reading such as this. It is a card of violence and ruin. Behind the basis is the three of wands, which looks like help planning........someone may have asked her for assistance with something. The wands would point south. Following this, we have the nine of cups, reversed. When this card falls reversed, it tells of mistakes, and I think the mistake here had to do with trust: Lorrin somehow placed her trust in the wrong person. The next card is the Empress. This is likely the reason Lorrin was in the position to trust the wrong person; a desire to help someone, from a nurturing standpoint.

The card at the base of the staff, in the place of self image, is the three of cups, reversed. This indicates someone with self indulgent tendencies and it sometimes indicates endings. Cups are water and emotions, and so far, there have been two reversed cups in this reading. Somehow, misplaced trust with someone who should have been congenial rather than violent is key in this situation. The next card, describing the general environment surrounding the disappearance, is the Chariot. This is conquest, and playing two extremes, successfully, against each other. On purely mundane levels, this could also be transportation by vehicle. So we see Lorrin transported in a vehicle that is not her own. Next we have the eight of cups, which is dissatisfaction with the very thing from which the subject expected satisfaction. The final outcome is the ace of wands, reversed. This is a disappointment. Whoever is indicated in the three of wands.......and that card DOES speak of involvement of at least one other person, has not reaped the benefits expected from his or her actions. I do not like to see the ten of swords in any reading about a missing person, but I always hope, until the case is closed, that the person is found safe. Here, I would expect the perpetrator to have had several changes of heart concerning the concealment of evidence, possibly trying water first, then burning evidence. West was considered, but south was somehow more convenient, and there could be multiple places containing or related to evidence. I would expect three miles south and three miles west of the last place Lorrin was seen to be important.

Has Kyron Horman's Trail Gone Completely Cold?

Kyron Horman. Still missing after three years. The only question I can think of that hasn't been put to divination yet is this: has the trail completely gone cold?
For the past, I pulled these three cards: Temperance, the Emperor, reversed, and the ace of cups. Temperance, as it is a card of good combinations and management, illustrates that earlier in the investigation, tips and leads were managed better than they are now, as was the flow of information between agencies involved in the search. The next card, the Emperor reversed, points to emotional immaturity and dependence on parents. It could also mean the loss of an inheritance. Somehow, a material loss which was also considered family property played a role early in the investigation. Yet, the ace of cups appears, telling us that all was not lost, and despite the lack of familial harmony, there was still hope.
For the present, I drew the three of cups, reversed, the five of cups, and the six of swords. This is an interesting and somewhat familiar message. The message of the three of cups when it falls reversed is often one of excesses and indulgence, and this seems to be the most fitting meaning of the card in this situation. Possibly too much alcohol consumption on the part of an adult connected to Kyron's situation. Next, we have the five of cups, reminding us of regret, and reinforcing the theme of loss, as first seen in the Emperor reversed. The overindulgence and material loss are connected. The six of swords follows this, and it is a card of travel. Either Kyron, or a witness who can tell us more, has moved away from the scene of the crime. This is rather disturbing, as it comes as an answer to the question about how Kyron's trail went cold.
For the future, I drew the five of swords, the seven of cups, and the Fool. How very interesting. The five of swords is anger, rage, and simple revenge. I do not like to see this in answer to why Kyron's case went cold, either. The seven of cups tells us that there have been many clues, but nothing that has solidly materialized; and energies and resources have been too widely scattered without enough direction. The Fool represents a new and vital choice that will be made in this case, and it will bring a whole new angle to finding Kyron. I believe that someone will be forced, with new motivations, to make a wiser and more productive choice about offering evidence and information. It looks as if it will be the result of a new investigator, or a new prosecutor, who finds a way to motivate people who are already involved in the case. I hope this happens soon. Kyron has been missing for over three years now.

Update For Kate Phillips

Katherine Phillips disappeared over a year and a half ago, and while her biological father is still in jail over this, Katherine has never been found. There were a couple of requests for an update.
I drew three cards for the past, which are the four of pentacles, reversed; the nine of swords, reversed; and the ten of cups. The four of pentacles reversed tells us about the wasting of resources instead of prudence in the area of paying bills. Clearly, someone involved in the situation with Katherine did not want to grow up and learn to budget money. Next, we have the nine of swords, reversed, which is worry, followed by the ten of cups, which, I believe, is Katherine's birth. While the birth was definately a happy event, and Katherine was very wanted, her presence caused worry for at least one party. But......everyone following this case already knew this much!
The next three cards are the four of wands, reversed;the ace of cups, and the four of swords, reversed. Four is a number that represents Family in Taosim, and in my opinion, the presence of these two fours in Katherine's reading screams "family"! Upright, the four of wands tells of happy family events, weddings, or parties, and reversed it often tells the same story, but sometimes as clouded, or imperfect happiness. The ace of cups refers, once again, to birth and happy news. The four of swords reversed is sudden activity after dormance. So.....the disappearance was planned, somewhat, and "sprung" on someone who did not suspect.
Finally, we have the seven of cups, reversed, representing the use of will and reason....we can safely assume that responsible party was not "insane". This is followed by the four of cups, also reversed. Another "four"......this one referring to new relationships and communications. Still a reference to "family"........I think the baby is somewhere near the biodad's last residence. All of the cups in this reading also speak of water, as water is the element that relates to cups, and point west. I do not think this baby ended up very far to the west, though. The final card is the Wheel of Fortune, which tells me that when Katherine is found, it will be by lucky chance. Ten is the value of the Wheel of fortune; perhaps that is a number of importance here.....could it corrospond to the ten of cups? Tenth Road? Ten feet? Ten ponds? Water is undoubtedly part of this picture now, whether is was when Katherine first disappeared or not. She is also not far from the home of someone in her family.

Madison Michelle Scharff

Madison Michelle Scharff has been missing from Emporia, Kansas since January 25.  she is sixteen years old, and the police have catagorized this as a runaway case. So I will do a basic Celtic Cross reading, asking about the situation, and the significant details that may hep to answer the the questions of why she disappeared, and where she went.
The basis we have is the five of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the Fool. Often, when the five of pentacles falls reversed, it tells of new romantic interests, and of lovers who do not have a place to meet. And this is crossed by the Fool, the card of brand new opportunities! I think we can safely guess that Maddy may have had a love interest. This is founded by the Queen of Cups, reversed. This is a woman who has been a rather bad influence of Maddy, and encouraged her to make choices that bring her into conflict with others in her life. To make matters more confusing for this poor girl, there is also the reversed Queen of Pentacles in the recent past of this situation, and this is a moody woman who is not always willing to share her time or resources, yet wants Maddy to fulfil various obligations. Inasmuch as Maddy is concerned, things are not always fair.

The two of pentacles crowns this, giving the option of communication at some future point, but the information given at Maddy's end will not be as complete as those who are looking for her would like. The seven of cups appears as an event in the near future, and this represents an influx to way too many choices or ideas that are not well thought out.

The Knight of Cups, reversed, appears in the place of causes for Maddy's disappearance, and as a possible player here. As he falls reversed, he is ultimately not a positive factor. A court card is the suit of cups is usaully a person who lies, and as cups corrospond to water, emotions, and affairs of the heart, one of the things about which this Knight may be dishonest is romantic intent. The Empress appears reversed in the place of home, and home environment, and indicates a relationship with a maternal figure, or the mother, which is strained and not terribly positive. The seven of swords in the place of hopes and fears tells us that the relationship indicated where the Empress appeared has brought on fears of being "too hard", or "more than someone can handle". As a final outcome, we get the four of cups, which is discontent. Hopefully, all parties will be able to find a compromise, and Madison Michelle Scharff can be listed as "found safe".

What Was Behind The Shooting Of Saad Al-Hilli?

Saad Al-Hilli and his wife were both found shot to death in the Alps in 2012, and someone sent me a link to the information, asking what the Tarot would say about it. Mr. and Mrs. Al-Hilli were survived by two young daughters; this was so sad for them.

The reading gives us the Hermit, reversed, crossed by the two of pentacles. This is an element of immaturity, or denial of reality, intertwined with attempts to make new starts, probably career changes. Beneath this, we see the Page of Wands, which is a message containing good news. Saad was not expecting to be shot. As a factor in Saad's past, the ten of pentacles comes up reversed, telling us that a financial loss, possibly of an inheritance, grant, or loan was at least part of the reason this crime took place. The message is that the money was not money that Saad earned, or earned by himself.
This is followed by the Page of Wands, which is some good news that Saad had gotton before he was killed. He did not expect to get murdered. After this, we get the ten of pentacles, reveresed, which tells of financial loss, particularly of an inheritiance or grant. The money was somehow considered to not have been completely earned by Saad. A problem in the investigation is indicated by the five of wads, reversed, which points to testimony that does not line up with other findings, and with witnesses changing their stories. The three of cups reversed has to do, not only with endings, but overindulgence on the physical plane, and with greed. Could this have contributed to the motive?
The three of swords appears in the place of fears, and it is a card of betrayal and disorder. The message here is that Saad had somehow compromised someone, or had been compromised. This oftenn goes hand in hand with conflicts about ownership and legal testimony. In the place of environment, we have the ace of cups, reversed, which describes a situation of family problems! As a hope, ( of the perpetrator(s)) we get the five of cups, reversed-somehow, this killer did not think that the murders were a big deal-as if he had a "right" to do it! And the reading ends with the two of cups, reversed, which is untrue love, and "love" partnerships that are violent.
