Who Might Know About Alissia Freeman?

The question about the Page of Swords, in my last reading, about Alissia Freeman, has been asked. Who is this person, and how does this person relate to Alissia's situation? Alissia disappeared on December 13, while allegedly taking out trash after cleaning up her room, and has not been seen since. So I will ask the Tarot to hone in on this hint that was dropped in the last reading.

We start with the ten of wands, crossed by the five of cups. A moment of power has been used unwisely, here, by someone. Also, another impression I get from the ten of wands is that there was a proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back." The five of cups, crossing it, is read reversed this time, meaning that an old friend, but in a friendship bearing a newly defined context, has somehow offered hopeful expectations. This caper was planned, as we can see via the three of wands, reversed, beneath this. The three of wands shows a planned, cooperate effort, and reversed, it show an underhanded effort. The Emperor follows this. He is the "father figure" of the Tarot, and as he falls upright, I will assume, for the moment, that he means Alissia no harm. Something that bothers me a bit, though, is that a possibility abuse of authority is referenced by Strength, reversed, following the Emperor. The next card is the Queen of Pentacles, and she is in the very near future of this situation. She is someone with a lot of skill, and she uses her skills very well. She is part of the effort to find Alissia.

Back to the contributions of the aforementioned Page of Swords.......We find the Hermit, reversed, in the place of fears. This does not help very much with a physical description, but it describes a person who is immature for his age, and refuses to take age appropriate responsibility or, otherwise, grow up. As for looks, I would look for a young man in late teens or early twenties with brown hair and eyes. The card that tells us of the Page's opinion of himself is the Hanged Man. He thinks that he has a "connection" to matters that are "spiritual", and uses this to manipulate others. In reality, he is more of a perpetual "Peter Pan" type. The nine of wands appears in his hopes, and this tells us that he is impatient and unable to manage stress. The last card, Justice reversed, tells us that he has had some issues of his own with our justice system. A word of warning, however; is that when this card falls reversed near the Hanged Man, which it has in this reading, it is a good idea to tread carefully and not be too severe. A lot could be lost by impulsive severity, and the hope is to bring Alissia home safely.

Myra Alissia Freeman

Myra Alissia Freeman was taking out the trash one evening at her home in Alabama, where she lives with her parents. She is seventeen years old, and the back story, along with the sheriff's contact information, is on the poster. But what happened, and where is she?

The basis is the seven of wands, reversed, crossed by Temperance. The seven of wands usually refers to something left unguarded when it falls reversed, and it speaks to loss, and the embarrassment that follows loss; as if one should have known better. Temperance shows good combinations and management. Beneath this, we have the eight of pentacles, reversed. The eight of pentacles is the card of the apprentice, but as Alissia was only seventeen, we can probably safely assume that this refers to schooling. As it falls reversed, it shows stresses, or problems, in that area. So we are given school stresses as a backdrop.

Following this, but still in the recent past, we have the four of wands, reversed. This is completed harvest and the chance to relax after hard work, and that is what it means in either the reversed or upright position. Reversed sometimes suggests that while things are not perfect, things are still pretty good. A possible outcome is the seven of pentacles, reversed, which I do not like. The seven of pentacles is the reaping of the fruits of one's labor when it falls upside right, but in reversal, it means the opposite: wasted efforts with no reward. This is a suggestion that Alissia may not be found immediately. The next card, in the near future, is Death. While the card can foretell a death, it is much more common for this card to tell us about a major change in someone's life, or in a situation. So far, I have not seen any violence in this reading that would have caused a death.

In the place of fears, we have the four of pentacles, which is a fear of waste, or a fear of not having enough money. I am actually happy to see this card in this position, as it relates to things that are on Alissia's mind. The next card is the Page of Swords, reversed. This page is in the place of environment, and is a young person who probably knows exactly where Alissia can be found. As the card has come up reversed, it suggests spying and lying, which is how this young person helped Alissia disappear. In the place of hopes, we have the Empress. This is the "mother" card of the Tarot, and as she appears upside right, we can assume that the mother in the situation, Alissia's mother, is her ally, here. This is also something that is on Alissia's mind. The final card is Justice, reversed, which worries me a bit. When Justice falls reversed in a reading, it usually warns that an authoritative decision somewhere along the line will be made, and it will impede progress. This could mean several things. First, it could be telling us that the police will determine that Alissia "ran away", and since she is seventeen, they will not realize that runaways are in just as much danger as kidnapping victims, and close her case. Or it could warn us that someone with whom Alissia is spending time could become paranoid or unjust in some way, and harm Alissia...or it could mean that law enforcement simply looks in all the wrong places and does not have any solid leads. I hate to see this card reversed as a final outcome.

As for location, Death would point us north. The item on the card that caught my eye is his flag, bearing the white, mystic rose. Could Alissia have ended up in a place that has "rose" in it's name? The four of pentacles also points us north, but the card is reversed, so perhaps things are stalled. The Page of Swords would use east as a direction, but he is also reversed, but the transformation of Death clearly shows that Alissia has traveled enough to dramatically change her situation. It appears, by this reading, that while she is in danger, it is not too late for rescue. I hope she is found soon.

Dylan Redwine

Dylan Redwine, of Colorado, was last seen a week ago, at his father's home near Durango, Colorado. He was supposed to visit his father for the Thanksgiving holiday. There is now a search in progress for him. My question is, what happened to Dylan, and where is he?

We start with the ten of cups, reversed, crossed by the four of wands. This gives a message of unhappiness in the home, crossed by some sort of happy event, or haven. Beneath this, we have the hierophant, who represents tradition. This could either be a minister, counselor, priest or mentor of some sort, whose guidance had helped Dylan in the past. Or it could be an institution representing tradition, such as a church or a school that had a positive effect on Dylan. Either way, it was something Dylan wanted back. Also in the past, we have the Page of Wands, which is usually a message of some kind, but in this reading, I think it represents Dylan. I also think something he had tried to tell others in his situation was not properly heard. The next card, in the place of things that have not yet come to pass, is the Empress, which is the "mother" card in the Tarot. She is also the very best result here, and the very best person for Dylan right now. The next card, in the place of things that either will happen or are happening, is Judgement, reversed, which tells of separation and fear. Sometimes it even speaks of fear of death. There is something outside of Dylan's control right now, separating him from where he wants to be, and from where he is safe. I do not believe he ran away.

In the place of fears, we find this reinforced by the two of wands, reversed, telling us of betrayals, fear, domination, and the fear of being overpowered. In the place of environment, we find the Moon, which, in this reading, speaks of things hidden or disguised, and of deception. Wherever Dylan is, he is hidden, and I think water is somehow part of the picture. For a direction, this card points us west. The eight of cups, reversed, is in the place of Dylan's hopes; this tells me that if Dylan could reverse the choice he made that got him into this situation, he would do so. And then we have the Page of Swords, as the final outcome, as another young person who is watching everyone search. For good or for ill, this person knows where Dylan is, yet has not come forward. His numeric value is eleven, and his direction would be east. Swords occasionally tells us of cyber communications.

My sense of this is that Dylan is alive.......I sincerely hope I am right. I will keep praying for his safe return, and I will come back to this if he is not home within a few days.

April Jones

April Jones, of Wales, reportedly was last seen on October 1 of this year when she was seen getting into a vehicle near her home. She is five years old. Someone asked me to see what the Tarot has to say about her case, so I will do a reading.

This reading begins with the three of swords crossed by the five of cups. The three of swords usually appears when there are family arguements and heated disagreements, often custody battles. The five of cups following this card usually means regret, and sometimes the payment of child support, but with disappointment involved. I am not saying that these elements are directly in April's life, but somehow, there is either a direct or indirect influence of these things in the perpetrator's motive. Founding this is the three of wands, reversed. This picture also involves treachery disguised as help. Could the perpetrator have participated in a search? Behind this, we have the Moon, reversed. When the Moon shows up reversed in a reading, it tells us that duplicity and lies have played a big role in the matter at hand. Someone whose role has yet to be discovered is the Page of Swords, reversed. This is a youngish man or woman who, in this case, has premeditated this crime. This person has remained undetected here. The nine of cups represents what will happen in the near future, and that is defensiveness tinged with impatience. So far, I am a bit relieved at what I don't see, which is violence, but dismayed that I see this case dragging on, without April being found immediately.
Whoever has taken April is already reconsidering the action. It has not been the great idea the perpetrator thought it was. The eight of cups tells us this, in the place of feelings. The environment, represented by the five of pentacles, tells us that everyone who does know about this is advising the responisible party to confess. A church may be involved here. The Hermit comes up in the place of hopes, and this is an older man, possibly a reverend or a counselor, who is trying to persuede someone to to the right thing. The last word here is Temperance, which means that this little girl will be found, with law enforcement patiently working all leads.
I wish I had more here, but I don't.
