Who Might Know About Alissia Freeman?

The question about the Page of Swords, in my last reading, about Alissia Freeman, has been asked. Who is this person, and how does this person relate to Alissia's situation? Alissia disappeared on December 13, while allegedly taking out trash after cleaning up her room, and has not been seen since. So I will ask the Tarot to hone in on this hint that was dropped in the last reading.

We start with the ten of wands, crossed by the five of cups. A moment of power has been used unwisely, here, by someone. Also, another impression I get from the ten of wands is that there was a proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back." The five of cups, crossing it, is read reversed this time, meaning that an old friend, but in a friendship bearing a newly defined context, has somehow offered hopeful expectations. This caper was planned, as we can see via the three of wands, reversed, beneath this. The three of wands shows a planned, cooperate effort, and reversed, it show an underhanded effort. The Emperor follows this. He is the "father figure" of the Tarot, and as he falls upright, I will assume, for the moment, that he means Alissia no harm. Something that bothers me a bit, though, is that a possibility abuse of authority is referenced by Strength, reversed, following the Emperor. The next card is the Queen of Pentacles, and she is in the very near future of this situation. She is someone with a lot of skill, and she uses her skills very well. She is part of the effort to find Alissia.

Back to the contributions of the aforementioned Page of Swords.......We find the Hermit, reversed, in the place of fears. This does not help very much with a physical description, but it describes a person who is immature for his age, and refuses to take age appropriate responsibility or, otherwise, grow up. As for looks, I would look for a young man in late teens or early twenties with brown hair and eyes. The card that tells us of the Page's opinion of himself is the Hanged Man. He thinks that he has a "connection" to matters that are "spiritual", and uses this to manipulate others. In reality, he is more of a perpetual "Peter Pan" type. The nine of wands appears in his hopes, and this tells us that he is impatient and unable to manage stress. The last card, Justice reversed, tells us that he has had some issues of his own with our justice system. A word of warning, however; is that when this card falls reversed near the Hanged Man, which it has in this reading, it is a good idea to tread carefully and not be too severe. A lot could be lost by impulsive severity, and the hope is to bring Alissia home safely.

Anthony Patrick Sinisgalli

Anthony Patrick Sinisgalli disappeared in August of 1987. He left his car at a rest stop in Kansas, with his belongings left inside. No one has seen him or heard from him since. I will ask the Tarot what happened to him, and ask about his current whereabouts.

The reading begins with the Page of cups crossed by Temperance. What an unusual message! The Page of Cups is usually a young person, but sometimes it can be a message of a birth, or a new idea. This is crossed by Temperance, which indicates careful planning, or "tempering" of a plan or idea. Beneath this is the nine of cups, indicating that Anthony's home life was satisfactory, and that he lacked nothing material. But behind him, we find the eight of wands, reversed, which tells of jealousy and disputes, often romantic. A woman whose life was involved at the time is described by the Queen of Cups; she is creative and sensitive, usually a good mother. I would expect her to have been in her twenties at the time Anthony disappeared. The next card is Strength, reversed. This is a very blunt message about a lack of courage on someone's part: facing someone and explaining the truth, or one's actions was found to be extremely difficult by someone involved in Anthony's case. It was very possibly Anthony. 

The King of Wands appears in the place of self image and self perception. This king is usually married and is a good husband and father. This is Anthony's perception of himself, and is also how others see him. The next card, describing environment, is the ace of pentacles. This is a very unusual card to appear in a missing person's reading, as it describes a lucrative opportunity. Nonetheless, I must call it as I read it, and the card is here! The next card, in the place of hopes, is the Emperor. This is Anthony's hope: that he was and is a good father. Could a mistress and an unplanned pregnancy have been part of this picture? Investigators need to consider it! 

The last card, describing the final outcome, is the Magician. He represents planned changes done with skill in a reading; he also represents skilled and professional assistance. This ties in with Temperance in the beginning of the reading....careful and moderate planning. It also suggests very strongly that Anthony had help "disappearing", and that he may have done so intentionally. Something I do not see in this reading is violence, which is interesting. Hopefully, anyone who did not get the appropriate closure will hear the explanation necessary, one day.

How Can The Skelton Boys Be Found?

Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner Skelton were last seen with their father before Thanksgiving of 2010. A reading I did for them earlier told us in no uncertain terms that deceit was a factor, and the father has not cooperated in locating them. Someone recently asked me if I would update the reading, since we just passed the third anniversary of their disappearance.
The best question I could think of is pretty simple: how can these boys be found? The first two cards we get are the Devil, reversed, crossed by the three of cups. This speaks of a violent or untimely end to something that was not violent or malicious. At the base is the six of swords, reversed. As this card indicates travel in it's upright position, it tells us, as it has fallen reversed here, that the boys never got terribly far from their father's home, and that there has not been a lot of movement in the case in a long time. This is followed by the Knight of pentacles, reversed. He is a man who is inclined, when reversed, to be unproductive and unreliable. He also deliberately slows things down; he is purposefully impeding this investigation. Earth is the element of pentacles, and that should not be overlooked either. Earth plays a role.
The five of wands, reversed, comes up next, in the place of possibilities. When this card falls reversed, I always expect to see contradictions and dishonesty, and this fits right in with the reversed Knight of Pentacles. His contributions to this have been, up to this point, games. Next, we have the seven of swords, reversed. Upright, this card is a card of wrongful taking, and inability to complete the wrongful taking, or taking on a task that is not fitted to the taker, and cannot be completed for that reason. Reversed, it means refers to good directions or good legal counsel. As we find it in the place of things that will come, in the future, we can be hopeful that someone will find better information soon.
In the place of fears, we find the Wheel of Fortune. Whoever took the boys feels quite lucky at having gotton away with it, so far. Environment is represented by the Lovers, reversed. This is a strange card for an environment of three missing boys; but I think it has more to do with the perpetrator that it does with them. The card seems to be describing a location connected to lovers' quarrels and disputes within a relationship important to the perpetrator. Perhaps a place that was used to just sit and think, after a serious argument. The King of Swords appears in the place of hopes, and as court cards in the suit of swords are often law enforcement, lawyers, or judges, I believe this is a member of law enforcement trying to find the boys. The reading ends with the Hierophant, reversed. The boys will be found by using unconventional methods, or by taking an unconventional tip or idea seriously.

Update For Sierra Lamar

There was a recent request for a reading for Sierra Lamar, who disappeared a year ago, with a focus on what Sierra was thinking at the time this happened, and possibly, the cause of death. I can certainly try this, and see what the Tarot has to say about those things.
This is rather a disturbing reading. It starts with the Emperor crossed by Temperance. The Emperor is the "father" card of the Tarot, and as he falls reversed here, I am going to assume that he is favorably disposed toward Sierra. Temperance is a card of good combinations and relationships, so it would seem that Sierra's father or someone who served as a father figure in her life had recently given Sierra some advice concerning boyfriends, drugs, or underage drinking. Beneath this, we find the six of swords, upside down. When this card falls upright, it is a card of travel. We see it reversed, here, which means that Sierra did not travel far, if at all, on the last day she was seen alive. It also tells of situations that have no escape, and it looks as if she was warned by her father about this particular possibility. The World also appears in Sierra's past, immediately before she disappeared. She had apparently just decided to do something that she saw as a positive step, or move, in her life. The five of swords overpowered her, though. Anger and revenge were involved. The Page of Wands appears as a message she was waiting to read or hear, but never got to see. Perhaps this was when her phone was taken from her. It seems that Sierra's last thoughts had to do with texts, messages, communication, and probably her phone.
The Hirophant, a card of tradition and sometimes of marriage, figured heavily into Sierra's fears. This is a bit unexpected, because Sierra was so young. The Knight of Cups, a romantic contact, occupied her thoughts. The Queen of Swords, reversed, was another aspect of Sierra's fears. There was a feminine influence here. The Queen of Swords reversed is intolerant and violent. The placement of all the cards from the suit of swords in this reading suggests strangulation or suffocation, as Swords' element is Air. Of course, the meaning could be more literal and suggest actual knives, too, but I tend to think strangulation. Justice, reversed, falls as the final outcome. Excessive severity, unjust punitive actions, and injustice in general is the meaning here. Sierra had either overstepped a boundery, or was perceived to have done so, and someone (or possibly two someones....a male and a female) about whom the Emperor had warned her decided to seek revenge. It does not appear that Sierra expected this, or saw it coming.

Phoenix Coldon

Phoenix Coldon, twenty-three, disappeared in St. Louis, Missouri, in December of 2011. Disappointingly, there has not been a lot of media coverage for her, so I will do a reading.
Immediately, I see a conflict of sorts between an older man with a fatherly interest in Phoenix and a younger, less experienced, more romantic man. The reading gave me the Knight of Cups crossed by the Emperor as a start. These have both played roles in Phoenix's life; and I believe the Emperor is her father. There is a background of childish or unrealistic expectations here, meeting stern reality, shown by the six of cups founding this matter. This father also has always seen more possibilities for his daughter, and wanted better for her. This is what his perspective has always been.
The four of pentacles appears as a recently passed event. This card, reversed, represents material setbacks. It also tells us that key information was given "a day late and a dollar short". The event that this information would describe is represented by the Knight of Swords. This knight can either be a person, message, or an event, and in this position, it appears to be an event. Sadly, the Knight of Swords is all about force and destruction. But how would such elements have come into Phoenix's life? Something that was becoming important to Phoenix at the time she disappeared is the ace of wands, which is a new adventure or enterprise. She either had an opportunity, or had been offered an opportunity, that somehow threatened a young man in her surroundings. The description, so far in the reading, is of a young man who felt that her emotional and material investments should be in him, or in things that were close to that with which he is familiar.
The Page of Pentacles appears in the place of fears. This is a dark haired, dark eyed girl or boy, and often a scholarship. In this position, I think it could be both. This represents Phoenix. Next, we have the nine of swords, reversed. This is a card of imprisonment, coming up in the place of environment, and refers to the place she was hidden, and the feelings of the perpetrator. The card would point ever so slightly to the east, as it is reversed, and perhaps speak of places that are desolate, abandoned, and not often frequented. The Queen of Pentacles appears in the place of hopes, and I think this is a woman connected to Phoenix who is hoping to find her. The sad final outcome here, is Justice, reversed. Not only does this illustrate the ineffective manner in which the media has publicized this case, and the fact that Pjhoenix has not been found, it also tells us that what has happened here was not the natural way of Phoenix's path, and that she was actually meant to take advantage of the opportunities life offered her.

A Dream Interpreted

Sometimes a dream actually has an interpretation that has a bearing on the life of the dreamer, and sometimes a dream is just one's subconscious having a field day. Here is a dream I had many years ago, when I first moved away from my childhood home. It was a warning about the lifestyle I had begun to foster.

In the dream, I was renting a basement apartment before graduating from college. I came home very late one night, and sat down to work on some homework before going to sleep. What seemed odd was that I entered the house through the front door upstairs, rather then the basement door. After I sat down, my father, who, in real life, had died a few years earlier, came downstairs to the basement from the attic of the house. We chatted, and before he left, he said, "I want to ask you something." He proceeded to the basement door, which was not the door I had used while entering the house, opened it and closed it, and then locked the deadbolt lock on it, and said, "How come you never lock this door?" Then I woke up, feeling a bit shaken.

I knew that dream was more than simply the action of my subconscious, but did not understand the entire symbolism at first. The man who taught me how to read Tarot thought the dream was interesting, and explained it this way: the house was the reality of life, in a Judeo-Christian sort of way. The basement and main floor, and the sidewalk leading up to the house, represented the realm of the living, hence my entrance through the door on the main floor, not the basement door. The attic represented "heaven", or the afterlife, from where my father had come, since he was deceased. The world outside of the basement door was a bit comparable to "hell", if you will. Since I belonged in the house, as part of the world's current living beings, I entered through the front door. When my father opened the basement door and closed it, he locked it. In the dream, I apparently had fostered an habit of leaving it unlocked. What he was saying to me when he asked me why I never locked that door was "why are you allowing the influences of hell into your life?"

Explained thus, the dream made perfect sense to me. I had, indeed, allowed some influences into my life that did not belong there. The advice in the dream may have been one of the best pieces of advice my father has ever given to me, with the exception, of course, of the dream in which he asked me why I wouldn't just admit that I was in love with my best friend! That's another story, though. And my best friend is now my husband......Dad was right, once again.

Dylan Redwine Update

As promised, here is an update to the last reading I posted on this blog, which was about Dylan Redwine, who disappeared on either November 18 or November 19 while visiting his father in Colorado.

Three cards I drew for the past are the seven of pentacles, the five of pentacles, reversed, and the four of swords, also reversed. Earth and air are reperesented, here; the seven of pentacles has to do with working for something, but on more mundane levels, digging. The five of pentacles reversed speaks to renewed relationships. Perhaps this was the sincere part of the whole plan between Dylan and his father. But then we run into the four of swords, reversed. This card, when upright, speaks of matters that are at rest, or dormant. Reversed, it tells us that something that was dormant has been awakened.

For the present, I drew the ten of wands, reversed, the eight of wands, and the nine of cups. We have moved from earth and air to fire and water. When reversed, the ten of wands warns of lost lawsuits, separation, lies, and duplicity. So we have those things as possible motivation for Dylan's disappearance. The eight of wands speaks of impulse and infatuation, providing even more in the way of motive. And then we have the nine of cups. Somewhere, near or at a favored camping or picnicing spot of family member, either Dylan or critical clues can be found. Yes, water somehow played a role.

In the future, we have the Empress, or the mother, awaiting Dylan's return. We also have the seven of wands, reversed, telling us that Dylan is not in a safe place; this card also cautions her against any indecision or hesitance to take action in order to find him. The last card is the five of swords, reversed. This was done as a personal, angry, vengeful statement, but the person who did it will not get away with it. I am sensing a lot of urgency, on Dylan's part, to solve this quickly. I hope that means that he can be found safe, but at this point, I am worried.

Jessica Ridgeway

Jessica Ridgeway disappeared this past Friday. She never got on the bus to go to school, and was not seen by any of her schoolmates Friday morning. She disappeared from Westminster, Colorado, and the number to call is anyone sees her is 303-658-4336.

This reading starts with the King of Pentacles, reversed, crossed by the Hanged Man. There is a man who uses money and material resources to manipulate others in this picture. And he has everything in Jessica's situation connected to himself at a standstill. The ace of wands, a new beginning, is the part of the background that made Jessica's disappearance advantageous for him. Also in the background is the Tower, suggesting an overthrow of a comfortable lifestyle and possible bankruptcy. As a strong possibility, we get the Page of Pentacles, reversed. This augers unfavorable news about Jessica, but nothing that has been stated or heard yet. As an event that will take place, the two of cups, reversed appears. This foretells a divorce or the breakup of a relationship, and somehow, Jessica has become a casaulty of it.
In the place of fears, we have the seven of pentacles, reversed. I strongly believe that this is a fear of the perpetrator; and that he is worried about losing everything that he, personally, has worked for. In the place of environment, we have the Emperor, reversed, lending, once again, a masculine influence in this. The Emperor is the "father" card when he is upright, reversed, he speaks to an immature, irresponsible male influence. In the place of hopes, we have the nine of cups, reversed. There is a chance that overindulgence in alcohol or drugs will cause this man to make the mistake that will get him caught. The final outcome is the Sun, which is an excellent card, reassuring us that at this moment, things can be worked out to the satisfaction of everyone concerned. So I would cautously venture Jessica should be found safely. Cautously.....I do not like the reversed two of cups or the reversed Page of Pentacles. The two of cups, because the card deals with separations; and the reversed page, because he deals in bad news.
For a direction to start searching, I would be inclined to look "one" to the north, and then "two" to the east. Cups generally point west, but the two of cups is reversed, so it seems prudent to interpret this as east, since misleading and deception are already part of the picture. Perhaps "one" state, then "two" states.  I will follow this up a few days, if Jessica is not found.

Skelton Brothers

Not too long ago, I got a request to do a reading for the three Skelton brother, Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner, who were not returned to their mother in Morenci, Michigan, after a visit with their father. Their father is in jail, and he refuses to discuss his sons' whereabouts with anyone. They disappeared over Thanksgiving of 2010. My question to the cards was "what happened to the Skelton Brothers, and where are they?"

The first two cards are the World, crossed by Death. This is rather ominous. They began what was supposed to be an exciting trip, and, in one of the rare incidents of actual death chronicles by the Tarot, apparantly died. I truly hope I have interpreted this incorrectly, but I don't think I have. For some background, we have been given the four of pentacles, reversed, which tells us that material losses, due to mistakes and extravagances on the part of the person experiencing the losses, played a role in this sad situation. The five of swords, reversed, tells us about deceit and a violent revenge of some sort. The best we can expect to find is the Knight of Pentacles, reversed. I think this speaks of an event, rather than a person in this reading, and I think we are being told that the boys will be found, very eventually, near or in a field that is not used anymore.....upright, this card is associated with plowed fields, since it came reversed, I am interpreting it as overgrown and unused fields. The Emporer is the next card, and as this is the "father" card, and the boys were with their father when they disappeared, I think the answers lie with the father.

In the mind of the person who did this, it was a way to express anger and keep a quarrel going. The three of swords tells us this. This was done to punish a former lover, the three boys were only collateral. We have the six of cups, which speaks of children, child friendships, and the past, telling us that these three boys were the most convenient way for the perpetrator to hurt the lover he so wanted to punish. The four of cups, reversed, in the place of hopes or fears, speaks of new relationships, and as it is a hope or fear, but not a reality, I think the perpetrator had a real problem with an ex moving on, to a new relationship. The reading ends with the Empress, or the "mother" card. So we have a picture of a father who wanted a relationship with a mother, and did not get what he wanted, and three boys used as pawns. How very sad.

Note: The six of cups appeared in the place of environment, and it may also have been telling us a little about location. Cups are water, which points us west, and the message may be "six to the west" of the father's home.

Ayla Reynolds

Ayla Reynolds, a toddler from Maine, has been missing since December 17. The reading I did was to answer the questions of what happened to her, and how would she be found. Ayla was staying with her father at the time of her disappearance, and he states that when he got up on the morning of December 17, she was missing from her bedroom. The reading starts with the Sun, reversed, crossed by the five of wands. Ayla's presence was welcomed enough, it seems, but not exactly what those around her wanted. The five of wands represents some sort of game, or trickery, almost from the beginning of this whole situation, before little Ayla went missing. This is based by the Page of cups. The Page of Cups here tells of news of a birth. And the message fading into the background is the seven of cups, the card of illusions and false notions. This reiterates the message of the base of the reading, expectations not being met, somehow, and deception being an option, for some reason, before this child even moved in with her father.

The very best thing we will all hear about this in terms of resolution is the Knight of Swords, reversed. I am not particularly pleased to see this card here, but not surprised. While I hope and pray for the best in all this, this Knight, especially reversed, warns of anger, violence, and sometimes violent death. The next card is the eight of swords, telling us of something that WILL take place. This is a card of restriction. Wherever this baby has been hidden, someone is keeping her whereabouts from becoming known. It gives me a little bit of hope that Ayla might be found alive. Just a little.

The six of pentacles has come up in the place of the feelings of the perpetrator. I was not expecting to see this card here, and I find it curious. It clearly refers to a financial reward, and I think it has to do with the reward offered for Ayla's return. Apparently, this has made an impression on someone. The next card, in the place of home environment, and opinions of family and friends, is the Hermit, reversed. The Hermit is like Diogenes, always searching for an honest man; and, quite frankly, finding him here, reversed, in the place of family is discouraging. It means that the people who lived with this little girl are not looking for her. In the place of hopes, we have the ace of wands, reversed. In addition to not looking for Ayla, someone is also not hoping that she will be found and returned to her mother. This sounds very harsh, but this is what the cards are saying. The final outcome is the two of cups. This is a card of partnerships. I believe that Ayla will be found by the efforts of more than one person or organization working together, and possibly in two days or two weeks. The two of cups may also refer to a significant other of someone who had access to Ayla.

Closer examination of same reading: The sun draws energy and objects into orbit around itself. In this reading, it is reversed. It is crossed by the five of wands. I think the very center of the house from which Ayla disappeared needs to be checked very carefully for clues.
