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.

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.
