Mary Georgine Lang disappeared in 1983, while running errands for her boss, a local attorney. Some of her personal effects, along with her car, were found a few days later, but Mary Lang is still missing. I have laid a horoscope spread for her reading.
In the first house, we find the three of cups. Normally, this card comes up to tell everyone that all is well, however; in this case, we must look at its alternative meaning, which refers to quick endings. The nature of the type of relationship represented by this card is often romantic, but other friendships can also be described. The four of swords comes up in the second house. This is a very different message from the first house card. The second house governs money and possession; it appears that Mary's money "went dormant", or "froze", after she disappeared. Somehow, this played a role in the big picture. House number three, governing communication, relatives, and short journeys, gives us the eight of cups. This tells us that very shortly after Mary disappeared, the whole effort that was put into her disappearance was abandoned. So whatever this was all about was a failure. In the fourth house, we have the four of wands, telling us that Mary's home environment had some sort of protection......it ties in a bit with the four of swords we saw in the second house, connected to her finances.
The fifth house, of sex appeal, creativity, and children, shows Death, reversed. Once again, the message is that the sought-after asset here has been "frozen", or was never in Mary's possession in the first place. In the sixth house, health, work relationships, and mundane everyday matters, we get the Knight of Wands, reversed. The type of man usually described here is a jealous one, with a violent temper. His position in Mary's work relationships is interesting; this is definitely where he found a connection to her. The seventh house gives us the three of swords. The seventh house governs marriage and partnerships, and the three of swords often appears to describe a divorce, or in-fighting within a family. These elements played a role in Mary's disappearance.
In the eighth house, governing legacies, wills, and death, we have the Hermit. This speaks directly to the reality that Mary is missing, and must be found in order discover what actually happened to her. Since the Hermit falls upside right, we can count on resolution, one day. The ninth house, of long journeys, law, the "establishment", and long-held beliefs, bears the five of swords, reversed. This is not a very nice card to see here, because it screams "violence" and "revenge". Also, since the ninth house is connected to law, often civil law, it takes us back to possible connections to Mary's employer. House number ten, of career ambitions and social status, back this up with the Page of Pentacles, reversed. It looks as if someone had either stalked Mary on the day she disappeared, or given information about her whereabouts and vulnerabilities to someone with bad intentions. In the eleventh house, of hopes, wishes, and friends, we have the three of pentacles, reversed. This is very telling. This points almost directly to a "friend" who did not like the way Mary handled something connected to her employment! Almost as if this "friend" wanted Mary to manipulate a legal matter, or violate a law, as a "favor", and was disappointed! In the twelfth house, of secrets, secret enemies, and self undoing, we find the six of wands, in the reversed position. This is the successful advance of an enemy. Also, a "message", of sorts. As for location, the eight of cups suggests possibly eight miles to the west, but as it falls reversed, this locations may have been reconsidered or changed. The five of swords in the ninth house bears a suggestion of east as a direction, but once again, the card is reversed. It appears that whoever hid evidence did a certain amount of backtracking and redistributing. One of the alternative meanings of the five of swords has to do with "storms ahead", but storm clouds are not unusual in Kansas! It's possible that we are being directed to a location that has "storm", "cloud", or "stormcloud" as part of its name. Or a place that has a name like "tornado" or "cyclone". The suggestion of the reversed six of wands in the twelfth house would be "six" to the south, but as it is reversed, north ended up being more important. Other symbols to look for are crosses, laurel, and bright flowers on vines. She is not very far from a church.
