Will New Evidence Lead To Kyron?

There has been a recent Freedom of Information act request by the media about Kyron Horman's missing persons case, and it was denied. The reason for this is that searches connected to the new evidence and testimony are ongoing, and law enforcement feels that the outcome of the case might be compromised if it is discussed in the news, at this point. The letter from law enforcement agencies does confirm that new evidence is under review. The question that is on everyone's mind is if it will lead to Kyron's whereabouts. Kyron disappeared from his school in Portland, Oregon on June 4, 2010, when he was seven years old.

In the first house, of the article, itself, we have the seven of wands, reversed. This is information that was hidden and well guarded for a long time. It is still well guarded, but has changed hands. In the second house, of personal funding and resources, we have the five of swords, reversed. This is a chance of defeat for someone, and a bit of a "paybacks are hell" message! We will come back to that later. The third house, governing letters, communication, relatives, short journeys, and memory, gives us the Queen of Wands, reversed. This is very interesting: the Queen of Wands is often physically depicted as a woman with strawberry blond or red hair, and reversed, she is jealous and has a nasty temper. Such a person played a role here, having to do with third house matters, namely short journeys and communication. Hmmm.

Moving on to the fourth house, of home and environment, we have the two of cups, reversed. This is a partnership that has failed, and also a tendency for passion that is misguided and sometimes explosive. Somehow, this dynamic factors into the new evidence, and how the new evidence came to the attention of law enforcement. The fifth house, of creativity and pleasure, sports the six of cups. The six of cups is often about childhood memories and about children. There is a relationship between these things, and some sacrifices that needed to be made, but were not made. Somehow, this too, brought the new evidence to the attention of law enforcement. In the sixth house, of day to day affairs, health, and the management of mundane details, we have the five of cups, reversed. In reversal, this card means hope, and sometimes, the return of an old friend. One can only hope and pray.

The seventh house, of committed relationships and compromise, gives us the world, reversed. This tells us that someone connected to this investigation has stalled, and failed to help the investigation move forward. We are not surprised, however; this has been a dynamic for almost seven years. The seventh house opposes the seven of wands in the first house, so we can be quite certain that it is telling us that lack of cooperation has been a major problem in finding Kyron. In the eighth house, of karma, legacies, law, and sometimes, death, we find the Queen of Pentacles, reversed. When this queen falls reversed in a reading, she is usually a moody and mistrusting woman. She has been behind the scenes, going over data and evidence. In fact, she opposes the reversed five of swords in the second house, which relates to finances and resources. So; we can extrapolate that the financial data of the reversed Queen of Wands in the third house has been part of this picture. Interesting.

The ninth house, of long journeys and education, federal law, and government gives us the four of swords. This is a card of dormancy, or rest. This inactivity opposes our reversed Queen of Wands. Her retreat from stress and strife has also played a role in the discovery of new evidence. Moving along to the tenth house, of career ambitions, social standing, and relationships with superiors, we see the six of wands, reversed. This means one thing, an enemy at the gate with an unpleasant message. It will ruin someone's reputation, too. The Hanged Man, reversed, is in the eleventh house, of friends, hobbies, and debates. The message here is a refusal to truly be a friend, and perhaps a friend has refused to cover for someone who is not a true friend. This card opposes the reversed two of cups in the fourth house of environment, so it appears that someone close to the matter has given some information to law enforcement. In the twelfth house, of secrets, restrictions, and secret enemies, we find the Star, reversed. This is pessimism and doubt.....there will still be problems with actual testimony from the reversed Queen of Wands. This card opposes the reversed five of cups in the sixth house, of details and mismanaged details. It looks, to the naked eye, as if we have testimony from a friend that contradicts something that was formerly believed by investigators.

Once again, nothing in this reading has pointed, outright, to Kyron's demise; although with each passing day in a search for a missing child, the chances of finding him or her alive reduce dramatically. In conclusion, it appears that finding Kyron will involve not only turning over every physical stone, but turning over every bit of testimony and every detail in the evidence that is gathered. This new evidence contains something that has the potential to ruin more than one life, and yes, it can lead to Kyron if handled with care.

Why Did Konnel Keller Die?


So many questions! Was this a murder, suicide, or accident? Konnel Keller was found deceased in his home on April 1, 2014. Speculation has it that his death was a suicide, but, so far, the investigation has fallen short of definite answers. Konnel has a friend who wanted to see if the Tarot could shed any light.

We start with the King of Swords, reversed, crossed by the two of swords, also read reversed, here. When the King of Swords falls reversed, the Tarot is often telling us of a man who can be cruel and abusive, and court cards in the suit of swords are often law enforcement, lawyers, or judges. This begins the situation with the influence of the judicial system. The two of swords is a card of stalemated and stalled affairs; when we see it reversed, we can be sure some type of sudden activity has just been initiated where there had previously been none. The caution, of course, is against those who have ulterior motives and against movement in the wrong direction.

Beneath this core situation, we see the King of Pentacles, upside down. This is a middle aged man who is selfish and who takes advantage of others. Plain and simple. Konnel's death is also preceded by the ace of swords, reversed. When the ace of swords is reversed, this shows that someone around Konnel had too much power, and used it, somehow. So far, we see a picture of legal problems, a corrupt older man, and power used either in too much quantity for the situation, or used in a corrupt way.

As something that should have happened, but didn't, we get the seven of cups, reversed. When this card falls upside right, it tells of delusion and foolish decisions; but reversed, it's meaning is the opposite. Somehow, Konnel never had a chance to "think outside of the box", and come up with a different answer to the situation that ultimately took his life. We have the five of cups, reversed, next. This shows us that Konnel was fun, a good friend, and spiritual in some ways. This may be a good reason to ask if his death was a murder or a suicide.

In the place of fears, we find the Queen of Swords, reversed. This lends an angry feminine influence to this whole situation. The Queen of Swords here is a woman who pretends to be something she is not, and who also pretends to uphold the law when she actually does not. She is an adult who had an influence in this death and has information that could help explain what happened and why. Next, in the place of environment, we have the Queen of Pentacles, reversed; yet another angry, brooding woman. This is a woman who did not trust Konnel for some reason, and she was actually somewhere very near, physically, when he died. The hope here, or the advice, is Strength. Strength is the triumph of light over darkness, love over hate, and order over chaos; this is the advice, here. Any further investigation cannot be done in the same spirit as the situation preceding Konnel's death. The last card is Justice, which tells us that at some point, there will be justice.

Konnel's friend is right; more investigation is needed in this case. By this reading, it does not look like a suicide, and if it was, it was heavily influenced by someone who should have stopped it. There are three people who need to be re-interviewed and a fourth whose oversight in this case is compromised by personal bias.

What Happened To Eric Franks?


Eric Franks was last seen en route to Saginaw, Michigan. This was in 2011, and at this point, he is presumed dead; but what really happened, and how can it be proven? We will see what light the Tarot can shed.

This reading begins with Justice, reversed, crossed by the three of cups. Justice delayed is often justice denied, but the three of cups, here, promise an end to this scenario. Going into background, we have the Queen of Swords, a woman who is kindly disposed toward Eric and is looking for him. As she falls upside right, I will assume that she is either part of Eric's family, or law enforcement. Her efforts have pulled up quite a bit of reliable information. In the recent past, we have the Page of Pentacles, which in this case, is an important bit of information from a younger person. It may open up a viable avenue of search. 

In the place of possibilities, we find the ten of pentacles. The ten of pentacles is often an inheritance, or a monetary gift. Somehow, this is a factor; but it is something that never materialized, and is just an idea. In this case, it may speak of a possible motive for Eric's disappearance. In the place of things that will come to pass, we have the ace of pentacles, which is not quite as big of a windfall as the ten of pentacles, and often represents an opportunity rather than actual money, but this dynamic is involved in solving this mystery. It may be a reward for valid information. 

The Page of Cups, reversed, appears in the place of fears. This is a young person who is not very good at a skill to which he or she claimed excellence. This has also caused worry for the person responsible for Eric's disappearance. Next, we have the two of swords in the place of environment. Not only do we have people with information refusing to come forward, there have also been a couple of people who have tampered with evidence! This also may give us a clue in terms of physical location: swords usually point us east. All the of the pentacles in this reading have pointed us north, as well. The six of cups appears, reversed, in the place of desires. This is a false notion; an expectation of a a gift, or perhaps just an outworn idea, on the part of an involved party. It also shows that someone may be attempting to sell information! The last card is the Moon, which shows bad luck and secret enemies. It also, however; grants investigators an ability to "read by moonlight", in the dark, if necessary, to find this young man. The Moon is a water card, and points slightly west, but any westerly movement of clues is almost an act of nature. Going back to the three of cups, there WILL be an end to this. I always wish I had better news in readings such as this.

Brandon Victor Swanson


Brandon Victor Swanson disappeared after leaving the home of a friend in Marshall, Minnesota. His car was found near Taunton, Minnesota. After experiencing car problems, he spoke briefly with his father via cell phone, which is how his car was located, but no one can find Brandon. Someone asked me if I would do a reading for him, so I will give it my best.

This reading begins with the Knight of Cups, reversed, crossed by the two of pentacles, which is also read reversed, here. When the Knight of Cups falls reversed, there is always trickery involved, as this is usually an untrustworthy man in his early twenties. His presence is followed up by the reversed two of pentacles, which points to forced, or simulated calm. At face value, it looks as if Brandon was carjacked and told to tell his father he was okay, when he really wasn't. But let's look further.

Another court card appears to lend some background information; the King of Pentacles, reversed. This would be a man who is older than the Knight of Cups, and I would expect him to have darker hair than the Knight of Cups and a darker complexion. He falls reversed here, and since his suit is pentacles, this points to a man who misuses his assets and, possibly, gambles. So we have two unknown people who might know what happened to Brandon.

The next card is also a court card; it is the King of Cups. As this card falls upside right, meaning that he is friend, not foe; I am inclined to identify him as Brandon's father. He is the last known person to have spoken with Brandon. This is followed by the Page of Pentacles, reversed. This leads me to believe that Brandon did not simply "disappear"; there was foul play involved. This page heralds bad news, and often theft, when reversed. Temperance comes up next; reiterating the message of competing interests and bad combinations. I would also venture a guess that Brandon either saw or heard something that could have compromised one or both of the men, the knight and the king.

The first card on the staff, describing problems connected to finding Brandon, is the seven of wands. This card tells of things that are guarded; secrets, homes, property, the like. The message here is that Brandon has not been found because he is either on private property, or somewhere bordering private property. Someone has deliberately impeded the search. The next card, showing environment, is Justice. This shows us that law enforcement still has an interest in finding Brandon, and if outworn ideas are scrapped in favor of trying new, Brandon can and will be found. It is quite likely that this will involve a search warrant, however. This is followed by the six of swords, which is a card of travel. The six of swords has appeared in the place of desires, and is a wish on the part of someone involved. The nine of pentacles is the last card, and it is a card of solitary enjoyment of property. This supports what we have seen in the seven of wands, by which we were told that private property and the need for a search warrant is pertinent. It is also a suggestion to look near or in a garden or flowerbed, or a small vegetable garden, near a house.

The pentacles and cups in this reading take us north and west, as directions. Fourteen is the number of the Temperance card; that is a likely number miles that should be covered. I found myself drawn to the small sun on the Temperance card; "sun" may be an actual, physical symbol here, such as part of the name of road or a place. Perhaps the name of a town that is somehow sun-related, or the name of a business. Somehow, this symbol is meant to give us a clue.

I always wish I had better news when I do a reading like this one. I will keep hoping for the best.

Is Kyron Safe Somewhere?


Here is a comment that came to me yesterday: "Looks like the ex-stepmother has finally decided to speak out and give an interview. Is Kyron safe somewhere?" The question has tugged at many hearts over the past five and a half years, since Kyron Horman disappeared from his second grade class at Skyline Elementary in Portland, Oregon. The question now deserves a closer look.


This reading starts with the three of swords, crossed by the nine of pentacles, which, in this case, is read reversed. When the three of swords falls reversed, it often indicates, in addition to infighting and strife, a meeting with someone who has been compromised by the subject. The nine of pentacles, when reversed, tells of voided projects, lost friendships, and sometimes, the loss of family or home. This seems consistent with the situation of Terri Horman, Kyron's former stepmother. Beneath this, we get the Page of Swords, reversed. This refers to a factor in the past, and the Page of Swords reversed often shows unpleasant surprises, for which someone involved is not prepared. People and circumstances did not proceed the way the perpetrator had expected.

Another card describing past events is the Fool, reversed. This is telling us that bad choices, and bad decisions were made, perhaps in relation to the events foreshadowed by the Page of Swords. Kyron's disappearance was planned, because someone had been compromised by him, and something went completely wrong. The person responsible for the crime did not have a reliable "Plan B".

The possible future shows us the World, which is an encouraging card to see here. This card foretells success and triumph. On more basic levels, it can also tell of travel. It is followed by the Queen of Pentacles, and as she falls upside right, I will assume, for the time being, that she is friend, not foe. She is an adult female who values security, particularly financial security, and stability. Her symbols are related to Earth; farming, ripe fruit, agriculture. I would expect her to have an olive complexion and dark hair and eyes. Her presence, is as of yet, unexplained.

The first card on the staff is the three of pentacles. This is the card of the craftsman; the job well done. Sometimes, it also describes a person or a family...it indicates wealth. It is in the place of self image and fears, and shows a fear of these elements. Is someone afraid that money will talk louder than blood or justice? The next card, in the place of environment and personal connections, is the Queen of Wands, reversed. I think this is a rather obvious reference, but I will go ahead and describe the character on this court card, anyways. The Queen of Wands is often blond, or red headed. She is passionate and active when upside right, but when she falls reversed, as she has here, she is jealous and cruel. Yes, this is the person who can tell us exactly where to find Kyron. The next card is Strength, reversed, which speaks to abused authority. The Queen of Wands took it upon herself to do something she did not have the legal or personal right to do, yet others thought that she did! She took advantage.....

The last card in the reading is the King of Pentacles. This is a man who, like his counterpart, the Queen of Pentacles, enjoys stability and security. I would expect him to look like his Queen, olive with dark hair and eyes. Also like the Queen of Pentacles, he falls upright, so it can be deduced that he is friend, not foe. A lot depends on him, here. He has control of the situation right now. Once again, like all of the readings I have done for Kyron in the past, his death has not been detailed. I also find it very interesting that two court cards from the same suit, pentacles, have appeared in present and future positions in this reading. This aspect, in addition to the World, would suggest very strongly that the answer to this question is yes, Kyron is somewhere safe. I hope that I am right.....it is possible that I have missed something, it is possible that my wishful thinking interfered.....but that is my interpretation of this reading.

With each passing day, a missing persons case gets more difficult for law enforcement to solve. In a case involving a stranger who either kidnaps an adult or a child, if the stranger intends to kill the victim, this usually happens within the first three hours. Kyron has been missing for over five years. If, as the reading suggests, he is still with us, he is not a seven year old anymore. He would be thirteen, and his appearance would be very different. If you know anything about Kyron's current whereabouts, will you please call the number on the poster above, and let someone know?

Jonathan Shay Is Still Missing


Jonathan Shay, who disappeared in July of last year, still has not been found. I was asked to do an updated reading, and this time, I am going to see if I can just hone in on possible locations. It has been much too long for a thirteen year old boy to be missing. Anyone who has seen Jonathan in person, or has information about his whereabouts should contact their local police or the FBI.

Grrr....this basis of this reading is the six of wands, reversed, (enemies and bad news) crossed by the ace of pentacles, also read reversed, which is monetary corruption and ill-gotten gains. The message is already troubling, and we are only two cards into the reading. As a foundation to this situation, we find the magician, reversed. This is someone who used a skill, and quite likely Jonathan's trust, for abusive purposes. Moving along to another card describing events in the past, we have the ten of swords, which I do not like at all in this position. This is a card of endings, often sad or violent endings. But we will corroborate this with the other cards.

As a possible future event, we see the two of wands. This tells us that there are some people close to Jonathan's case who have not given up on finding him, and are still looking for him. At this point, details that would seem insignificant, along with obvious clues, are very important. The next card is the ten of wands, reversed. Here, we have not only separation and loss, but separation through duplicity; this sheds light on the reversed Magician. Somehow, the person represented by the Magician has had an opportunity to lie in person to investigators.

The first card on the staff, describing, in this case, the lies told to Jonathan, is the four of wands. He was promised a happy adventure. What actually happened is the Chariot, reversed. This is perversion, collapsed plans, and sometimes revenge. On mundane levels, this card sometimes refers to vehicles. Perhaps a Mercury Cougar.........as it has fallen reversed, I would expect the car to have mechanical problems or to have sat, stationary, for a while. Temperance reversed is the next card. This tells of unfortunate mixes, such as bad friendships or the mixture of bad business associates and friends. Perhaps it is merely a friendship that involved individuals who are not compatible, but this aspect has somehow played a role. The nine of swords is the last card. This is not only a card of worry, but when it falls reversed, it tells of imprisonment of some kind or other. I think it is possible that the whoever was involved in Jonathan's disappearance is already in legal trouble.

Honing in on location: the abundant presence of swords in this reading points us first to the east, then we are also pointed south by wands. I keep coming back to the Chariot....not only in its more spiritual meaning, but its literal and mundane meaning. Finding a vehicle that was connected to this incident will yield some evidence, and it is a vehicle that is not terribly reliable and has probably sat, neglected, for a time. Perhaps the owner isn't even in a position to retrieve it. But it must be located. All the speculation in the world will not take the place of solid evidence.

I always hope I am wrong when an interpretation such as this is apparent. I will keep hoping and praying that I am this, time, too. In the meantime, I hope Jonathan is found; no child should be missing this long.

Is The Investigation For Teresa Sievers On The Right Track?

As the news has reported nationwide, Dr. Teresa Sievers, of Florida, was dead inside of her Fort Myers home in June. Two suspects have been charged, and one of them is, apparently, a friend of Sievers's husband. A reader sent me a comment inquiring about this murder, and I will see what light the cards can shed on this.

The reading begins with the Knight of Wands crossed by the Page of Pentacles. I will assume, since the knight is upside right, that he is a man who is part of the investigation, rather than a bystander or a perpetrator. He is energetic and creative, and leaves no stone unturned. He is crossed by the Page of Pentacles, which is read upside right, here, also. This is either someone who works as an assistant in gathering information, or the information, itself. Some valid information has already been culled by authorities. Beneath this is the nine of pentacles, reversed. This tells of a possible loss of home, security, or friends who are connected to the same. This is the trail that was followed in making the arrest. The card that follows is the three of swords, reversed. This card indicates that there is some treachery, or false information, involved. There has already been at least one disappointment in putting together evidence for this case.

A potential problem shows itself in the form of the Queen of Swords, reversed. When this card falls reversed, a woman who abuses authority is often described. This could be someone in the legal field whose decisions and actions are stalling the investigation, or it could be a female witness who refuses to come forward with information. She has potential influence, but has not succeeded in stopping the truth yet. The eight of swords, reversed, is the next card, and it ties in with the reversed queen's contributions to the situation, yet it is the result of the treachery indicated by the reversed three of wands that we saw earlier. So we know that there are already problems with either testimony or evidence. 

The Knight of Cups falls reversed in the place of worries; the person most worried about the outcome of the investigation is a man in his late twenties or early thirties, possibly with light brown hair and hazel eyes. He comes on as sweet and very romantic, but as he falls reversed in this reading, we know that there is some sort of fraud and dishonesty involved, as a result of his presence. The next card, describing the opinion of those involved, is the Queen of Cups, reversed. Here we have the victim, but seen by someone as a villain! As she is represented by cups, along with the Knight of Cups, she and this knight are connected. So yes, investigators appear to be asking the right questions. As a fear, we get the High Priestess, who represents all things hidden. This worries the reversed Knight of Cups very much: what is known by law enforcement that hasn't been revealed? The last card is Strength, reversed. This brings us back to abuse of power, which appears to somehow be a stumbling block. It does appear that law enforcement is looking in the right directions.

Sierra Lamar Update

Someone sent me a question concerning the direction of the Sierra Lamar case. It is disturbing to see another year pass by, with no resolution. Here is a link to Find Sierra Lamar, and I will attempt to do another reading. Sometimes, I am not sure there is anything to add to a cold case with another reading, but a lot of time has gone by in Sierra's case.

Someone recently asked me if there would be any answers in court, as the defendant in her case, Antolin Garcia-Torres, has not entered a plea and will not cooperate. So I will update by asking if there will be any answers in court.

We start with the six of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the eight of cups. The six of pentacles usually appears reversed to describe bad debts and fraud; it raises my eyebrows a bit to see it at the core of the answer to a question on a matter such as this! It is crossed by the eight of cups, which in this case, is read reversed. This card is telling us a story of joy, happiness, and of matters spiritual getting abandoned for matters material. If I didn't know better, it would appear that Antolin did not get paid for something, and is patiently waiting for a payday of some sort! Or at least for his efforts to be rewarded.

In the background of the entire situation, we find the five of cups, reversed, which is all about expectations in this positions. Antolin was either waiting for an old friend, or had just been introduced, by an old friend, to someone new. The Page of Pentacles is also in the background. This involves communication or a message of some sort, about Sierra. So it appears that Antolin had either just met Sierra, had just been introduced, or had been told about her, and had attempted to find her that morning......the last day she was seen alive. The Queen of Pentacles also appears; she is a woman who has looked for Sierra since she disappeared, and has not given up. The five of pentacles appears as a sign of things to come, and in answer to a question like this, I would have to say that it is new information or testimony that is finally going to be heard.

The ace of swords appears in the place of fears; this describes Antolin's fear about the justice system, specifically that new and relevant information will be revealed, and it also describes some growing fears among Sierra's friends and family that Antolin will not be held accountable. The environment surrounding this is, once again, about a reward or "getting paid", because the next card is the ten of pentacles. Sometimes, this card tells of money that was spent on a house or a business, but; once again, I cannot see how this would play into a question like this one. Temperance comes up in the place of hopes. There is still a waiting game being played......but then,,,,,the reading ends with the nine of wands, upside down. This is the very opposite of waiting! This is an obstacle thrown in the defendant's path. Still, there are going to be delays, as the defendant has no intention of cooperating. Any interactions he has with the outside world, particularly where he or those close to him get any financial resources, will be watched and scrutinized.

It still appears as is Sierra is not far from where she lived. Outside, in a place where there are small animals, such as gophers and turtles.

Update For Morgan Martin


Morgan Martin has been missing for almost three years. I have had several requests for an update, and there are times when I do not thing there is anything to add to what the cards have already told us, but the lack of progress in this case is disappointing. Something that I do not think was covered very well in the media has to do with testimony, tips to law enforcement, and possible suspects. I decided to ask the cards if there is any light to be shed on that.

We have a basis of the five of wands, reversed, crossed by the Star. There have clearly been some compromises in this case and some rather deliberate slights in the investigation. The Star is read reversed here, and it shows that there is a lot of doubt in police and their management of the search for Morgan. This is based by the Page of Cups, reversed. This page is a young person who has given false information to police. A little bit of digging, or re-interviewing the last persons to have seen Morgan will yield better information from this young person. The two of wands is in the past, this is a physical struggle, which Morgan lost. The three of swords appears as a strong possibility, which is in-fighting, and familial and possibly political strife. So we can see that there was a person police did not want to interview or charge, being protected at Morgan's expense. Then, we have the Queen of Cups, reversed. I do not like to see her here, because she represents a female who is either protecting a guilty party, obstructing justice with false testimony, or denying justice to Morgan and her family. Look for her to be connected to the guilty party as a lover, spouse, or very close family member.

The King of Pentacles appears in the general atmosphere of this whole matter, and he is ready to hear the truth when someone comes forward with it. Right now, his hands are tied by lack of evidence; he is waiting to either find Morgan or have enough evidence for charges in this case to stick. Not knowing exactly what happened is difficult, but murder case have been won without finding the victims, and in this age of DNA evidence, he knows it's possible to present such a case.....so says the Temperance card. In the middle of all this, the six of pentacles, reversed, says there is someone feeling that insistence on solving the case is somehow "unfair", or "asking too much"! But the reading ends with the three of pentacles, which is the card of skill, and in this case, the skill would be that of detectives and investigators. The suggestion is that the case will be solved by these skills; and that the biggest problem here is obstruction of justice by the woman represented by the reversed Queen of Cups.

Honing In On Brian Patrick Miller

The question of how to find Brian Miller was posed to me, and he still has not been found, seen or heard from, so I will put this question to the Tarot, and see if any new ideas result.

We start with Temperance, crossed by the four of pentacles in answer to the question of how Brian can be found. So it looks like we have the beginnings of a good mixture of investigative skills suddenly shut down, via information being withheld, for some reason. Beneath this is the ten of wands, reversed, which bespeaks duplicity. But is this on the part of law enforcement or a witness? The next card is the ace of pentacles. Somehow, this seems like a lead or a tip, when it appears in relation to this question. As a location, it refers to earth, and possibly a small flower garden. 

A distinct possibility here is described by the eight of pentacles, reversed, which tells me that we are looking at an unethical use of skills somewhere in the investigation, so that helps to answer the question concerning who would withhold information. This is followed by the seven of cups, which is delusions of grandeur, or lots of discussion about unrealistic possibilities. So a definite problem exists in the investigation. 

The Knight of Pentacles appears in the place of fears. There is some perceived reason for someone to be afraid of Brian being found. In the place of environment, we have the High Priestess, reversed, which is feminine influence and superficiality. Somewhere, connected to this case, is a woman who delivers half truths and gets away with evasiveness with law enforcement. Not enough is known about her connection to Brian's case to force her to testify. Also, as a location, the seven of cups and the High Priestess would indicate water. I would say water, pillars, palm trees, and perhaps a statue. The three of cups appears as a desire, which is obviously the desire to find Brian and have a happy ending to this story. It is also another water card, but this time, it's mundane location description is, once again, of a garden; possibly at an estate or a house where lavish parties have been thrown. The last card here is the Queen of Swords, letting us know that in order to cut to the chase, a court order will be required. This Queen represents legal or judicial authority; she may be a prosecutor or a judge. It may be a good idea to write a letter to whoever oversees the agency responsible for the investigation, or for Brian's family to contact their state representative, and get the ball rolling that way.

What Happened To Sarah And Jacob Hoggle?

Sarah and Jacob Hoggle are both missing from Montgomery County, Maryland. Jacob was last seen with his mother, Catherine Hoggle, on Sunday, September 8, and Sarah was last seen with her mother the following day. Catherine is now in jail, refusing to reveal the whereabouts of both children, so I will see what the Tarot has to say. 

We start with a base consisting of the nine of wands crossed by the Magician, only the Magician is reversed in this case, so his energies are not helpful. The nine of wands indicates that the person who began this course of events, Catherine, was patiently waiting for the right time. This was planned. When we see the Magician reversed, we know to look for abuses of power, and abusive behavior that is rooted in weakness and sometimes, passive aggressiveness. The eight of cups is beneath this, as a contributing factor. This card describes a situation in which one is not happy with choices made or wages earned, after thinking one would be. Next, we have Strength, reversed, which is, once again, telling us that power was abused, only this time, it refers mainly to physical power. So we have a person who felt disinterested in a situation or relationship because she felt that her own choices were overridden or ignored, and power had somehow been abused against her by someone, and we see it manifested again, in her behavior. Somehow, the children are not appearing as anything but pawns to the main player.

A possibility is described by the Knight of Wands, who is a man between the ages of twenty-two and about forty who is capable of "thinking outside the box" at times like this. He is someone who can gather information and communicate, and he somehow has input. Also, the Hermit appears, showing the ongoing search for these children. As a location, this card often indicates hilly terrain, with footpaths. The Hermit's time of day is evening.

In the place of emotional actions and needs, we have the six of pentacles. This message is clear; someone will have to bargain and barter in order to get the necessary information to find these children quickly. Even so, there is still a lack of perception in the part of the main player, here, concerning the importance of finding Jacob and Sarah. In the place of environment, we have the Page of Pentacles, which is the most encouraging card in this reading. This card can portend a young person who enjoys studying and learning, yet it also often tells of important messages. So it appears that a valid message or tip finally comes in. The next card, in the place of desires, is the seven of cups. This is often a card of dreams, or ideas that have not been developed into practical, workable plans. But there is another possibility: as this card is a water card, and as there is also a Seven Locks Road, near the Potomac River, in that part of Montgomery County, Maryland, perhaps it should also be searched. The last card is the Knight of Cups, reversed. Cups are symbolic of water, and when this knight falls reversed, one can also expect deceit and trickery. I honestly think this relates mostly to the testimony given by the mother, so far. I also think the seven of cups may have a triple meaning here, not only telling us about watery locations and half baked plans, but about delusions held by the mother as fact. Sadly, I do not think there will be a happy ending to all this, although I always hope I am wrong about this type of conclusion.

Update On Relisha Rudd

A question was posed to me concerning the time frame of finding Relisha Rudd. The Tarot is notoriously difficult to understand in establishing time frames, but I will attempt to answer this question based, not only on linear time, but other considerations. Sometimes, a clue linked to an event can help with a guess about how much time is needed, or the Tarot can give us a suggestion.

The first three cards, which represent the past, are the five of wands, the seven of pentacles, and the five of pentacles. The five of wands tells us about games and trickery. Precious time was lost in reporting Relisha missing, because the perpetrator was playing games with everyone from Relisha's family to her school, and later on, to law enforcement. The seven of pentacles is a situation of carefully waiting for fruit to ripen on a cultivated tree, with tells me that initially, a sincere effort to find Relisha was actually made. It came up empty, as we can see with the five of pentacles. Note that we have two fives here, which can mean five of anything, or the fifth of something........we may have the fifth month, which would be May; or we may have five weeks. The suggestion in the seven of pentacles is that this investigation will take some digging and some legwork before it comes to fruition.

The three cards which represent the the present are Death, reversed; the two of pentacles, reversed; and the Hierophant. When Death appears reversed, we are being told that there is stagnant energy about, as in movement is stalled. The two of cups is a water card; once again, we are reminded that water is part of this entire picture. But as this card falls reversed, there is not only instability in the physical environment, such as rain and varying water levels, but disagreement between the community and investigators about finding Relisha. In the future, the Hierophant foretells some agreement, however. He represents codified conformity and community. Individuals in Relisha's community still feel that authorities have dropped the ball on this situation, though. The reader should note that the numeric value of the Hierophant is also five.

The future of this effort brings us the ten of wands, reversed; the Emperor, and the ace of swords. The ten of wands reversed speaks to the recognition of failed efforts. I say "recognition" because it is followed by the Emperor, who is a decisive male figure with a certain amount of authority. Combined with the Hierophant in the last three cards, he can give searchers a lot of help and direction. The last card is the ace of swords, which augers success, but also tells us that new methods must be employed here. New tools, and possibly an aerial view, either connected to this search; or in some other process, yet yielding clues, nonetheless; will be helpful. But it will happen, and in the meantime, no clue, phone call, message, tip, or sighting should be overlooked or discounted. 

Time constraints and time frames are very hard to deduce from Tarot, but it looks like five is a symbolic number, this time. It could be five weeks or five months, or the first week after the fifth month, or the five could mean something else, entirely. This reading gave us something else, though; it showed a few of the challenges in finding this little girl.

Has Kyron Horman's Trail Gone Completely Cold?

 
Kyron Horman. Still missing after three years. The only question I can think of that hasn't been put to divination yet is this: has the trail completely gone cold?
 
For the past, I pulled these three cards: Temperance, the Emperor, reversed, and the ace of cups. Temperance, as it is a card of good combinations and management, illustrates that earlier in the investigation, tips and leads were managed better than they are now, as was the flow of information between agencies involved in the search. The next card, the Emperor reversed, points to emotional immaturity and dependence on parents. It could also mean the loss of an inheritance. Somehow, a material loss which was also considered family property played a role early in the investigation. Yet, the ace of cups appears, telling us that all was not lost, and despite the lack of familial harmony, there was still hope.
 
For the present, I drew the three of cups, reversed, the five of cups, and the six of swords. This is an interesting and somewhat familiar message. The message of the three of cups when it falls reversed is often one of excesses and indulgence, and this seems to be the most fitting meaning of the card in this situation. Possibly too much alcohol consumption on the part of an adult connected to Kyron's situation. Next, we have the five of cups, reminding us of regret, and reinforcing the theme of loss, as first seen in the Emperor reversed. The overindulgence and material loss are connected. The six of swords follows this, and it is a card of travel. Either Kyron, or a witness who can tell us more, has moved away from the scene of the crime. This is rather disturbing, as it comes as an answer to the question about how Kyron's trail went cold.
 
For the future, I drew the five of swords, the seven of cups, and the Fool. How very interesting. The five of swords is anger, rage, and simple revenge. I do not like to see this in answer to why Kyron's case went cold, either. The seven of cups tells us that there have been many clues, but nothing that has solidly materialized; and energies and resources have been too widely scattered without enough direction. The Fool represents a new and vital choice that will be made in this case, and it will bring a whole new angle to finding Kyron. I believe that someone will be forced, with new motivations, to make a wiser and more productive choice about offering evidence and information. It looks as if it will be the result of a new investigator, or a new prosecutor, who finds a way to motivate people who are already involved in the case. I hope this happens soon. Kyron has been missing for over three years now.

Petition To State Farm Insurance On Behalf Of Ayla Reynolds

As many have already heard, Justin Dipietro, the father of Ayla Reynolds, bought an insurance policy against Ayla from a friend who works for State Farm Insurance. Within Two weeks of that day, Ayla disappeared. She has not been seen since Decenber 16, 2011. A very good petition has been put together, to request that State Farm do a very thorough investigation before they pay Justin Dipietro anything at all for his missing daughter. Hopefully, everyone who reads this will look at the petition and sign it. Here is the link: https://www.change.org/petitions/state-farm-life-insurance-company-investigate-the-disappearance-of-ayla-bell-reynolds
