Toni Heartsong

Bob and Toni Heartsong lived in Florida, and were married for almost twenty-seven years when Bob came home one evening and found Toni brutally murdered. After about eight years, the state of Florida charged Bob with Toni's murder, but Bob was later acquitted. At this point, there are no additional suspects, and Toni Heartsong's murder remains unsolved. The question I have posed is "Who killed Toni Heartsong, and why?
The general atmosphere is described by the Sun, reversed, crossed by the Emperor. Here we have a good situation, albeit not entirely perfect, with a fatherly male influence. In this case, the person represented as the fatherly male influence was somewhat exasperated, as was Toni, with the matter that eventually led to this murder. As a founding circumstance and attitude on the part of someone involved, the four of cups appear. This is ingratitude and dissatisfaction. Someone expected more of Toni, and possibly Bob, somewhere along the line, than they felt they should give. The whole matter seems to have drifted into the past at this point; we get the Hanged Man, reversed, to tell us this. When the Hanged Man appears reversed, this usually means n unwillingness to sacrifice, especially for the greater good, such as within a family, but sometimes it simply means egotism; but in the same vein: one's preoccupation with ego is more important than any team or community. Thus describes a large part of the motivation for the murder. It was rather personal.
The card describing the ultimate goal of the murderer is the ten of swords, which is a very violent card. It also speaks of abrupt and final endings, so to see this card in the goals and plans of the murderer tells us that this murder was premeditated. The next card is the eight of swords, which is entrapment with no escape. Toni was cornered after her routine or schedule was learned by someone. The card describing the perpetrator's fears is the eight of pentacles, which is the card of the apprentice. Something this person did not want to do was start all over again in a new job, or begin to train for one. In fact, this person really didn't want to take the time and trouble to learn work related skills at all. The eight of wands, reversed, describes the family atmosphere. This is jealousy and domestic problems. In the place of hopes, we have the Hierophant, which is tradition, and often marriage. It would appear that both Bob and Toni valued their marriage and their family relationships. The last card is a court card, and I believe it is the perpetrator; the Knight of Cups, reversed. This is a young man, somewhere between the ages of twenty-one and thirty-five or so. The Knight of Cups reversed is generally someone who is dishonest, especially in regard to business matters. This is someone who commits fraud and scams. Also, light brown hear and blue or hazel eyes are likely.
The presence of three eights is significant in this reading; coupled with the four of cups as a founding circumstance, it would appear that someone wanted Toni to help finance and idea or venture, and she determined that it was not a good risk. The eights refer to mastery, and they have come up in places that bring mastery and ability on the part of the victim as underlying causes for her murder. Could someone have gotten angry with her for seeing through a fraud and wanted revenge? A lot of speculation has focused on Bob, but according to this reading, the murderer was younger than Bob.

Susan Cox Powell

Someone asked me if I would do a reading for Susan Cox Powell recently. She was last seen on either December 6 or December 7, 2009 in her home in West Valley, Utah. Her late husband, Josh, has been the main person of interest since she was reported missing. Lately, her father in law, Steve Powell, has also been looked at with suspicion, especially since February of this year, when Josh violently killed himself and the two boys he had with Susan and burned down his house. What a sad situation.

The question I put to the cards was "what happened to Susan Cox Powell, and where is she?" This reading begins with the six of wands, reversed, crossed by the three of wands. The reversed six of wands indicates fear of an enemy, or the message to or from the same, and the three indicates help or assistance. It appears that someone considered Susan a threat because of information she had, and assistance was offered in putting an end to this perceived threat. The ace of pentacles reversed offeres us some background here. This is corruption, selfishness, and dishonestly......about money. Someone could not run the risk of the threat she and her knowledge posed to their financial wellbeing. The sun reversed follows this, telling us of a broken engagement or a voided contract. I think Susan may have told her husband that she wanted a divorce. The ten of wands reversed is a possible outcome, and it warns us that there is still treachery and lying in the picture. The World, reversed, is what happened. It's message is that Susan did not escape the marriage or her situation with Josh quickly enough.

The first card on the staff is the seven of cups, reversed. Unfortunately, the perpetrator here knew exactly what he was doing, every step of the way. The next card, describing environment, tells us why he did these things. It is the Knight of Swords, reversed, and this is a card of violence. The suit if swords also speaks of law enforcement at times, and I think Josh may begun to feel that they were closing in on him. As a location, swords would point west, and the knight would indicate rocky terrain, but this card is upside down. Perhaps there was indecision about location, as the perpetrator did have help. The next card is the four of swords, reversed. This speaks of renewed activity, or hopes of renewed activity. This card also point west, and tells not only of rocky terrain, but possibly old graveyards, churches, or possibly even a hotel or campground where someone might rest. Hotel or campground....very possible. Four of something. It's possible that clues will be found with unrelated renewed digging or activity.  The Page of Cups concludes this reading. This is usually a young person, but sometimes new information. I think in this case it is both, and that one of Susan's late sons had important information, but somehow, the message here is that the information is still valid, and with persistance, can still solve this case.
