Where Is Kiplyn Davis?

Kiplyn Davis disappeared from Spanish Fork High School in Spanish Fork, Utah, on May 3, 1995. Three people known to be involved in this case have been prosecuted for perjury, and one for manslaughter, but she has never been found, and the whole story of her disappearance has never been completely put together. The police initially did not even take a report about her, telling her parents that she "must" have run away from home. Kiplyn's parents took the initiative to try to find her, and to pass out as many flyers bearing her picture as they could. This is one of them, above.

The question I have asked is "where?" In answer, the reading begins with the High Priestess, representing things hidden, crossed by the King of Cups, whose appearance here is reversed. There is an adult male, who was likely an adult in 1995, when Kiplyn disappeared, helping to keep her whereabouts hidden. Beneath this, we get the World, telling of opportunities connected to very act of hiding Kiplyn. Apparently, during the time no one suspected those who were eventually questioned, there was ample opportunity to hide Kiplyn, which was done. This is followed by the Star, and I think it refers to the directional course used by the perpetrators. Natural landmarks were used to find an initial place, and, as indicated by the six of wands, in a possible outcome, someone actually has knowledge of it. A problem in testifying is the two of swords, which is a stalemate, caused, in this case, by one party with nothing to lose by cooperating, and another party managing to discourage the testimony, anyway. Swords often refer to written or spoken words.

The beginning of the staff shows us the seven of swords in the place of fears. This was fear and inability to "play" innocent; also, I think it is telling us that Kiplyn was moved. The seven of pentacles represents the current environment......field, garden, place that was tilled or dug. Also, something was bartered, here. The next card, in the place of hopes, is Death, reversed. Someone involved is hoping that things will stay as they are. The last card is the nine of pentacles, which is financial independence; but as surroundings or a physical location, it would indicate a property with a garden, possibly with one person's name on the deed.

It would seem that looking for something that was planted, built, or dug on private property at around the time this happened would probably be a good place to start looking. The reversed King of Cups will do all he can to put a stop to any searches.

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.

Gabrielle Swainson

Fifteen year old Gabrielle Swainson disappeared from her home in South Carolina on August 18 of this year. It happened during the early morning hours, while her mother was at work. Some time ago, someone asked me to do a reading for her, but I have been holding off, hoping that Gabrielle would be found. A man named Freddie Grant has been in custody for several months in connection to Gabrielle's disappearance. This reading starts with the Knight of Pentacles, reversed, crossed by the ten of cups. This seems like a rather clear message already: an adult, but not yet middle aged or old, male who is discontent over the fact that the familial harmony symbolized by the ten of cups has eluded him. Founding this, we have the two of pentacles, which tells us that attempts on this man's part to communicate were either not received well, or not received at all. The Page of Pentacles appears next, and this card also heralds a messenger, but messages conveyed by pentacles are not always spoken or written words; sometimes they are favors or gifts. In any event, these "messages" were not properly understood by their recipient. As a location, all of these pentacles would point north, but ever so slightly, as the Knight is reversed, and we get a value of two on the two of pentacles, and a value of eleven on the Page. It could either be eleven, or possibly one plus one.

AS the best possible outcome, we have the Knight of Pentacles. This card is often law enforcement in readings such as this, and he is already involved to some degree. He falls upright, so I believe that his inquiry concerning the Knight of Pentacles is warrented. The next card is the card that makes my heart sink.....the Tower, reversed. This speaks of overthrowing perceived "obstacles" that somehow stood in the way of the Knight of Pentacles acheiving his goals. Had Gabbiee only vanished a day or two ago, I might wonder if she had just ben held against her will somewhere, but sadly, I think she has been hostage in one place for too long.

In the place of fears, we have the four of wands, reversed. This would be a place with a garden or a trellis.......a manicured place to enjoy the outdoors.....but not too far outdoors, and close to houses. In the place of environment, we have the ten of pentacles, reversed, which speaks to poor risks, monetary losses, and perhaps robbery. The King of Wands appears in the place of hopes; this is a man who is trying to find Gabrielle. He is a bit more stable in lifestyle and career than the Knight of Swords, and a bit more inclined to answer to science, rather than instinct. The last card here is the two of wands, which is a card of endeavors that require more than one person. It can also represent scientific method, which in Gabrielle's case, would be forensic evidence. I am sorry to say that I do not think I see Gabrielle coming home on her own, (I sincerely hope that I am wrong) but I think forensic evidence plays a significant role in solving this case.
