Molly Miller

Molly Miller, of Oklahoma, disappeared on July 7, 2013, and has still not been found. Since we have almost reached the year anniversary mark, I have done a reading for her.

The foundation is the eight of swords, crossed by the Queen of Swords. This is a clear message of having been trapped and unable to escape. Swords corresponds symbolically to air, which rules communication, and the Queen of Swords either was unable to locate Molly or respond to Molly's last attempt at communication. As the Queen is not terribly well disposed toward Molly, efforts to respond to Molly at the time of her last cell phone call may not have been seriously attempted. Beneath this, we find the Sun, reversed. This indicates cancelled plans. Following this, we have the seven of pentacles, also reversed, which tells us that the cancelled plans concerned money that was either promised or owed, but not paid. The next card we find is the nine of cups, reversed, and when I find it in a reading such as this, it often means that indulgence in drugs or alcohol was a factor. This six of swords reversed follows, telling us that there was no way out of the situation. Inasmuch as the cell phone call was concerned, a clear signal was also a problem. 

The first card on the staff, involving fears, is the three of swords, reversed. One of the meanings carried by this card is confrontation with someone who has either been threatened or compromised in some way by the subject of the reading, so we have someone who feels that he or she has been compromised by Molly, and Molly realized that she should not have been where she was. The next card, describing what was observable about Molly at the time she made her unsuccessful phone call is the three of cups, reversed, which is another reference to overindulgence in either drugs or alcohol; and also a reference to endings. In the place of hopes, we have the hierophant, which is tradition and a hope that things will somehow get "back to normal". Sadly, the rest of the reading does not support this. The last card is Judgement, reversed, which supports that things will not be renewed in such a manner that they "get back to normal". I wish it looked different, but that is what I see. 

There are a lot of water cards in this reading, and "air" cards that reference water. As a direction, this would point us to the west, but as the six of swords is reversed, I don't think there is significant distance in any direction concerning Molly's location. I think all clues can be found within a three mile distance of where she was last seen. The sun, reversed, is also disturbing in this reading, it makes me wonder if clues are "under the sun", so to speak, but buried or hidden just a little; not enough to have taken a lot of time or effort on the part of the person hiding evidence. At this point, it appears that because of electronic communications and unusual law enforcement decisions, a lot is already known about this case that has been swept under the rug. I hope Molly is found soon, despite all of this.

Update For Morgan Martin

Morgan Martin, Florida teen who went missing in July of 2012, is still missing. When someone asks me for an updated reading on a cold case, such as this one, I almost never know specifically what question to put to the Tarot. It's also very disappointing that these cold cases, especially ones involving children, exist in the first place. Perhaps the most important question in this case right now has to do with where Morgan Martin can be found. She was also between sixteen and twenty weeks pregnant at the time of her disappearance.
I simply asked the question, "Where is Morgan Martin?" The reading is already unique in that the cards all fell reversed. We begin with three cards for the past, which are, the Magician, the seven of wands, and the nine of swords. When the Magician falls reversed, he speaks of abuses in power. This is someone who either has some personal or political power in the part of Florida where Morgan lived, or has the ear of someone who does. This power was used against Morgan, and was further abused in covering up events that took place after Morgan left her home for the last time. The seven f wands, when upright, is guarded property and a guarded home; but when this card falls reversed, it is the opposite. Morgan had let her guard down completely, and that is how she became vulnerable. The nine of swords signifies imprisonment, especially false imprisonment.
For the present, we have the ace of cups, the Page of Cups, and Judgement. I believe we saw Judgement in an earlier reading for Morgan. The ace of cups does not bode well for the unborn child. Upright, it refers to birth and fertility, along with joy, but reversed, it tells of the opposite of those things. Likewise the Page of Cups, who is also reversed here. The reversed Page goes a step further and assures us that a deliberate deception can be revealed under the right circumstances, though, so we can be sure that Morgan's disappearance was no accident. Fear of death and disillusionment are what we are being shown by Judgement upside down, those were elements on Morgan's part.
What we will find in the future are the ten of swords, the three of pentacles, and the four of cups. The ten of swords is a card of violent endings, either reversed or upright. When reversed, the message is power, but short lived. Once again, we are getting hints that someone with some power played a role in this situation, but it will not last. The three of pentacles is a card of craftsmanship, yet it falls reversed; and I think it helps to explain the ten of pentacles and the Magician a little bit; it is telling us that someone who was charged with bringing events to light decided, instead, to hide clues and obscure the truth. The last card is the four of cups. When we get this card reversed, we have a sigh of relief.....someone jumping from new relationship to new relationship and from novelty to novelty.
For the answer to the question of "where"; I must conclude that water is a dominant geographic feature in Morgan's current surroundings. The three cards for the present gave me two cards from the suit of cups, and the element corresponding to cups is water, and Judgement is, on mundane, or everyday levels, a "watery" card in and of itself. As a physical location, it tells of traversing and rising out of water, typically a large lake or an ocean, but not travelling to new places. Reversed, it would simply tell of water as a hiding place, rather than a springboard or an agent of rebirth.
