Someone recently asked me for an update to readings I have done in the past for Skylar Neese. While I do not feel that there is anything I can add to what the cards have already revealed, perhaps I can muse over the question of why this case seems to have stalled.
I have three cards for the past, and those are Death, the High Priestess, and the King of Cups. Death tells us immediately, from the beginning, that there are circumstances that are not under the control of any person, at this point. The High Priestess represents secrets. There have been some leads; simply no one has made the information public. Together, these two cards would take us northwest. The next card I have for the past is the King of Cups. He is an intelligent man, and his role in this situation is favorably disposed toward Skylar. I think he is someone who is trying to find her.
For the present, I drew the five of cups, the ten of swords, reversed; and the Hanged Man, also reversed. The five of cups says that there are clues or factors which have not yet been taken into account. The ten of swords refers to power plays, or posturing. And when the Hanged Man falls reversed, this indicates an unwillingness to sacrifice something....be it information or evidence. I really think there is a "game" of sorts occuring at this point in time between authorities, witnesses, and suspect(s). This would certainly explain the lull in movement here.
The future gives us the eight of pentacles, the Chariot, and Judgement, reversed. The eight of pentacles is the element of career skills, in this case, law enforcement skills, applied in solving the case. The Chariot is the ability to bring the testimony and the evidence together, explain and correct the conflicts between the testimony and the forensic evidence, and move forward. Judgement coming up reversed as the last card does not bode well for the reading. I think that someone with evidence is planning to hold out as long as he/she can. I also think that eventually, there will be a resolution, but it will fail the hopes of many people involved.
