Original Night Stalker

The unknown rapist dubbed the Original Night Stalker was active in California 1976 to 1986. He was primarily active in Sacramento and in parts of southern California. DNA and other forensic evidence has linked him to at least twelve murders and over fifty sexual assaults on women. He has also been called the Diamond Knot Killer, the East Area Rapist, and the Golden State Killer. Someone asked me to do a reading about him, so I will see what the cards might tell us. So who is this Original Night Stalker? And what finally happened to him? Someone asked me to ask the cards, so I will do just that!

In the first house, of personality and appearance, we see the six of wands. This tells us that we are would look for a man with who knows how to communicate and present himself. He also has a falsely exalted opinion of himself. Look for a man between 5'11" and 6'1" tall, with light brown or blondish hair. Of course, the hair may be greying and the hairline receding by now! The second house of money and possessions shows the Hermit; our stalker does not invest too publicly or have joint accounts or partners in business. He is a loner. We see the Lovers in the third house, showing that he does have family, and possibly a girlfriend or a wife. The third house also governs short journeys and written communication.......this may mean that a former or current romantic partner knows about his past and his covering for him. The Sun falls in his fourth house, of home environment. The stalker's family sees him in a very positive light, and would be shocked to hear about his criminal past. Also, this could be a mundane reference to the state of California!


Moving on to the fifth house, of creativity and sexuality, we find the Tower. The Tower is a card of all kinds of conflict and mayhem, so it is no surprise to find this card in the fifth house! As the card is upside right, all of the stalker's problems are unresolved. Next, in the sixth house, of work relationships and day to day life, we find the King of Wands. This may be a workmate or an employer. Another aspect of the sixth house is worry, and the King of Wands is usually an upstanding and good man; it is quite possible that the stalker worries that this King suspects him of current or past faults. This is a man who makes the stalker uncomfortable. The seventh house, of important partnerships, such as marriage, gives us Strength, reversed. We can expect our stalker to be involved in an abusive relationship. When Strength falls reversed, this often means abuse of institutionalized power, and as we see it in the seventh house, we can see that he would be an abusive husband or lover. Next, in the eighth house, of karma, death, joint finances and legacies, we have the ace of swords. This house also governs debt, and its symbolic body part is the genitals. Somehow, this is linked to karmic debt, and a debt to society. It should come as no surprise to him that his DNA, left at crime scenes, has already identified him! All we really lack is a name. The ace of swords tells us that he may have a child, whose DNA also provides a link. Swords also often refer to information, and at some point, we can expect information from all parts of his life to converge, and someone will put it all together.

 The ninth house, of long journeys, protection, foreign countries, and the establishment and the law, gives us Judgement. This is encouraging, because Judgement and the law go hand in hand. The scope of the investigation will come as a surprise to the stalker and his family. Because Judgement appears upside right, I believe he will be caught. Because it is in the ninth house, he may try to hide somewhere far away from where he committed his crimes. In the tenth house, which governs career and ambition, and one's standing in the world, we have the Moon. Despite the stalker's best efforts, he is seen as a liar and creep. He has not have very good relationships with superiors at any job he has had, either. In the eleventh house, of friends and social life, the nine of wands shows up. In light of the rest of the reading, this is not encouraging. This shows our stalker never quite making friends, but always on the fringes of social circles. He is a loner, appearing to be......just waiting for something. The twelfth house, the house of self undoing, secrets, and secret enemies, gives us the Magician. Someone who knows what he is doing will eventually find the stalker. The stalker appears to have found victims within his own little microcosm, or circle of "family" members, but I believe he will, at some point, be matched with forensic evidence from the past.

Angela Marie Hammond


Angela Marie Hammond has been missing since 1991, when she was snatched by an unknown
male from a Missouri, phone booth.

The reading starts with the Tower, crossed by the seven of swords, which is read reversed. This gives us a situation unforeseen conflict aided by opportunity and an able hand. Angela did not see the attack coming, and the perpetrator had no problem grabbing her. This is founded by the ace of cups, which symbolizes romantic new beginnings, happiness, hope, and love. This somehow symbolizes the last few moments of Angela's life, before she met her attacker. Next, we have the eight of pentacles, reversed. This tells us a little about the perpetrator; he was not very good at the skills required for his employment. I am not sure how this plays into Angela's situation, but it comes up in the background.

As the best possible outcome, we have the King of Swords. This king is often law enforcement,
and the message here is that police would still like to solve Angela's missing persons case. This is
followed by the Devil, reversed. Upside right, the Devil is often a card of bondage, so when I
see it reversed here in a missing person's reading, it appears that the case will open up again and
be solved, eventually, and no longer belong exclusively to the perpetrator. Sometimes, this card
warns of indecision: hopefully no opportunity to find evidence goes without proper investigation.
There is a distinct warning about this. Another meaning for this card is sexual perversion. This is
something that will be unearthed in testimony, when this case is solved.

In the place of fears, we have the Emperor, reversed. The Emperor is the "father" card of the deck,
and when we see him reversed, he is often telling us about a male, fatherly figure who is ineffective
and indecisive. There is a man, who is significantly older than Angela, and he needs to be questioned.
This would play into the reversed Devil's indecisiveness. It appears that someone,somewhere,
connected to this case has information that he or she hopes will be considered. Next, in the place of environment, we have the ten of wands. This is a good card to see for closing a case; it means that
a problem is soon to be solved. Next, we have the Sun, in the place of hopes. This is clear;it is the
hope that Angela will be found, and that all will come to light. The last card is the Hierophant. This
card is the card of conformity and and social sanctions. It's placement here tells us that the
investigation can and will unearth the evidence: good, old fashioned police work.

To find Angela, we have a lot of fiery "south" cards. While the Devil often points us north, he is
reversed in this reading. He is also rather fiery, as is the Sun. The Sun suggests that Angela is outside,
and the ten of wands points us south. I think there may be a field that should be searched....a place
where people sometimes hunt deer. I am not sure how far away this place is from where she
disappeared, but it seems that the drive should be a few hours, but not a few days. Perhaps as
long as one day.

I really wish I had better news from the Tarot about this.

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.

More About Kara Kopetsky



There have been a couple of requests for another reading for Kara Kopetsky, who disappeared in May of 2007.  I thought about this for awhile, unsure of what I could add, and decided to ask the Tarot one more question, in an attempt to hone in on Kara's whereabouts. It does look, from previous readings, like she has been the victim of foul play. I always wish, in cases like this, that the outcome could be more positive.

We begin with the six of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the Emperor. Somehow, due diligence has not been done here, in terms of searching for her. The Emperor is either Kara's father, or a "fatherly" male, who would like to find her. The ten of pentacles is in the past; it points to a reward or bonus for finding Kara, but no one has collected. Next, and also in the past, we have the five of swords. Usually, when this card comes up in a reading, it is all about lies and revenge, and sometimes about violence. This is why I think Kara met with foul play. There was someone, a male someone, who was vindictive and felt that he had a score of some sort to settle with Kara. The lovers appear next, in the place of possibilities. This is a suggestion that partnership and communication have been lacking, but will help, if tried. Information must be shared, locations must be searched and searched again. Any locations given in tips that were not searched should be searched. The ace of cups, reversed, appears as a challenge; there is an attitude "we've searched everywhere, there's no where else to search!" Yet, obviously, that's not true, as Kara would have been found if that was the case.

The five of pentacles appears in the place of fears. Often, the on this card shows a church. There may be a church in the vicinity of Kara's location. I would expect this church to be a landmark of sorts. In the place of environment, we have the ten of cups. I really feel that this speaks to location, and this card often tells of a family home. There could even be new construction of houses in the area. The Wheel of Fortune comes up in hopes, and this is simply the hope that luck will prevail, and that Kara will be found. The reading ends with the nine of cups, which is another "house and home" card. That card also indicates that there are enough resources to find Kara; and no reason to delay. There are a lot of "cups" cards, and their element is water. Water is a key feature in this situation. Also, there is water symbolism in the Lovers, and the suggestion on that card is to search water, and places with waterways and ponds.West is the direction associated with water and cups, pointing us west in the search. Searchers should expect to cross the Kansas River, and go into Kansas.

Where Are The Fandel Children?


Amy and Scott Fandel, a brother and sister in Alaska, disappeared on from their home on September 5, 1978. He was thirteen years old, she was eight. They had been left home alone for the evening, and were not reported missing until the following day. Their case has not been resolved, so lets see if the Tarot can give us any answers.

This reading starts with the eight of wands, reversed, crossed by the Queen of Wands. This appears to be jealousy, aimed at this queen, almost as if harming the children were a means of expressing anger toward the Queen of Wands. Beneath this, we have the five of swords, reversed, supporting this. It is a suggestion that someone incurred a loss, of sorts, to the Queen of Wands, and exacted revenge upon her. We also have the two of cups, reversed, in the background, telling us that the loss involved either a friendship or a romantic partnership.

Crowning all of this is the Empress, reversed. She suggests that the children should not have been left alone. Following this, we have the six of swords, showing travel, possibly across water or across a border between different states.

The children were not taken by a sole abductor, as the three of wands appears in the place of "self" on the staff. The three of wands indicates a cooperative effort between different individuals. The next card, in the place of opinions of others, is Justice. This tells us that whoever took Amy and Scott felt perfectly justified in doing so. Next, we have the Fool, in the place of hopes. This is clearly a hope of moving forward without getting caught or discovered. Last, we have the two of swords, reversed. When the two of swords falls upside right, we see stalemated situations, but when it falls reversed, the message is quite the opposite: some time in the future, we will see movement in this case, but it will be unusual and almost appear to be the wrong thing at the wrong time.

The only card suggesting death or violence is the five of swords; this worries me; still, I do not see death in this reading.....that is not to say it hasn't occurred, though. The direction we see here is south......and combined with the six of swords, it is at least a couple days journey to the south. This whole crime appears to have been dreamed up and mostly executed by a woman, as there is a lot of feminine energy in this reading, lent by the Queen of Wands and the Empress. What I do not see are efforts on the part of law enforcement to find the children, or the results of such efforts.

Robin Pope

 
Robin Pope was last seen in Maryland on March 1 of this year. So far, a few clues have been found, but no one has heard from Robin.
 
So what happened to Robin Pope and where is she? The reading begins with the six of swords, reversed, crossed by the seven of wands. The six of swords usually involves travel when it is upright, but reversed, it means quite the opposite. But water is somehow still part of the picture, just not travel over it or through it. The seven of wands is all about guarded knowledge or guarded property. I am going to venture a guess that about six to ten feet of water on private property, where law enforcement would need a warrent to search, is an important part of this picture.
 
As a foundation for this event, we have the three of swords, reversed. This tells of romantic and marital break-ups, and of difficulty in reaching agreements when rifts have taken place. This is an event that served as a cause of Robin's disappearance. The next card shows us the Knight of Swords attempting to disappear into the past. This is often a card of violence, either an event or a person, and here I would say he represents both. As a person, he would be a middle aged male who is capable of violence and has a motive for the same. Possibly blue eyes and light brown or greying hair. A possible future connection this man may seek out is the King of Pentacles, reversed. This is an older man, who is focused on money. As he falls reversed, do not expect him to be honest or have Robin's best interest at heart. Another future omen is the eight of swords. This fortells difficulty locating Robin, and tells us that wherever Robin is, she is trapped. The message here is similar, in this case, to what we saw in the reversed six of swords........non-movement and a few feet of water. I hope that I am wrong. Another possible message here is that the case gets stalled for awhile, for some reason.
 
The person who knows where Robin is would like to avoid the discovery of evidence by young people hunting or playing, and finding evidence by accident. The Page of Wands appears in the place of his fears, and he is already worried about young people, or, for some reason, children, divulging and announcing his secrets. Strength reversed appears in the place of environment, telling us that abuse of power has also played a role in this situation. Either someone in a position of authority has dropped the ball and refused to bring Robin home and have this perpetrator charged, or the person on whose property the evidence, or Robin herself, is hidden knows exactly what is going on and refuses to allow anyone to search. In the place of hopes, we find the Chariot, reversed. This is a card of voided projects and sometimes, unthical victories. Also, there is a message here that is similar to the reversed six of swords and the eight of swords; by this perpetrator's design, Robin has not been found. The final outcome here is Temperance, which is a good card. It points to workable and productive combinations, so we can expect forensic evidence, the mundane and physical meaning of this card here, and law enforcement, the "people" part of the mix, to work together and solve this case.

Why Is The Skylar Neese Case Stalled?

Someone recently asked me for an update to readings I have done in the past for Skylar Neese. While I do not feel that there is anything I can add to what the cards have already revealed, perhaps I can muse over the question of why this case seems to have stalled.
 
I have three cards for the past, and those are Death, the High Priestess, and the King of Cups. Death tells us immediately, from the beginning, that there are circumstances that are not under the control of any person, at this point. The High Priestess represents secrets. There have been some leads; simply no one has made the information public. Together, these two cards would take us northwest. The next card I have for the past is the King of Cups. He is an intelligent man, and his role in this situation is favorably disposed toward Skylar. I think he is someone who is trying to find her.
 
For the present, I drew the five of cups, the ten of swords, reversed; and the Hanged Man, also reversed. The five of cups says that there are clues or factors which have not yet been taken into account. The ten of swords refers to power plays, or posturing. And when the Hanged Man falls reversed, this indicates an unwillingness to sacrifice something....be it information or evidence. I really think there is a "game" of sorts occuring at this point in time between authorities, witnesses, and suspect(s). This would certainly explain the lull in movement here.
 
The future gives us the eight of pentacles, the Chariot, and Judgement, reversed. The eight of pentacles is the element of career skills, in this case, law enforcement skills, applied in solving the case. The Chariot is the ability to bring the testimony and the evidence together, explain and correct the conflicts between the testimony and the forensic evidence, and move forward. Judgement coming up reversed as the last card does not bode well for the reading. I think that someone with evidence is planning to hold out as long as he/she can. I also think that eventually, there will be a resolution, but it will fail the hopes of many people involved.

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.

Question About Law Enforcement In Kyron Horman's Case

Yesterday, someone asked me a question about the police, and how the Kyron Horman case has been handled. Since I have not done a reading about this yet, I decided to do one, and post it online. It's a Celtic Cross, and the verbatim is, "what have the police not covered in Kyron Horman's case?"

The basis is the four of pentacles crossed by the seven of swords. The four of pentacles signifies hoarding resources instead of spending them, and the seven of swords tells me that this was more than the police were able to manage in the first place. So........that was easy; financial corners were cut early on, and it was handled in ways that were inexpert and gave an advantage to a thief or kidnapper.

The next two cards deal with things that happened close to the event (Kyron's disappearance) itself. Below, in the place of background, we have the Sun, which is a great card. It usually means excellent fortune. This makes me think that the crime could have been solved by now, if looked at......with LIGHT shining on it.......or under the SUN. (sounds weird, but somehow seemed like the thing to say at the time) Perhaps they (law enforcement) already have their answer. The next card, representing events or people moving into the past, is the two of wands. This is an endeavor which was started with help, in this case, an accomplice. I think an accomplice was able to slip away, unnoticed and unquestioned in this whole mess. To this day, no one may be looking at this person or his or her involvement.

The next card, the two of cups reversed, deals with an issue that is still having repercussions on the investigation; inability on the parts of two or more individuals to work together. I do not know if this is law enforcement or others involved in the search or in Kyron's life, but I do know that the lack of trust and breakdown of communication between these two entities has the potential to continue to harm Kyron's chances of being found. Something that WILL happen, is the Hermit. He is a little like Diogenes, looking for an honest man. He will leave no stone unturned, and I am happy to see him in the place of things that WILL happen, rather than things that COULD happen.

The staff begins with Strength in the place of environs, this tells me that law enforcement is still committed to finding Kyron. Eight is the number of that card; perhaps it is of some significance. I will have to think on that some more. The next card deals with public opinion, and it is the eight of pentacles reversed. Upright, this card is the card of the apprentice, gifted in his chosen field. Upside down, not so much! Apparently, my questioner, and others, have a low opinion of the skill and diligence of this police force! This is followed by the ten of wands in the place of desires, and this indicates that the community would like to see closure in this matter. The final outcome is the Fool. The Fool is a completely new idea, approach, or person. He can be an event or an individual, and upright, as this card appears, he is almost an answer to prayer! I believe law enforcement will finally get a valid tip that will help the Hermit, who appeared in the place of things to come, find Kyron and solve this case.

I realize that there are a couple of loose ends in the question, but this is what I have right now, along with a grey cat who wants to reshuffle my cards!
