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.

Pearl Pinson

 On May 25 of 2016, a fifteen year old girl named Pearl Pinson was abducted on her way to school in Vallejo, California. Since then, a suspect has been identified and shot during a conflict with law enforcement and an attempt to flee and elude, but no one has located Pearl. Someone recently requested that I do a reading about this case, so I will ask the obvious question concerning her whereabouts.

We begin with the World, crossed by the four of swords. Usually, the World is a card of success and opportunity, and Pearl's day may very well have begun that way. Another meaning of this card is travel, and also being outside. Its number in the Major Arcana is twenty-one, which may be a significant number, here. It is crossed by the four of swords, which indicates that there is a temporary lull in activity right now. This is based by Death. Death usually does not foretell an actual death, but in the case of a missing person or a crime victim, it is not a good card to see at any point in a reading. This card may also bear a double meaning: it may refer not only to Pearl, but to the suspect who was shot and killed by law enforcement. It is followed by the two of swords, which reinforces the message given by the four; a stalemate or a standoff of some type, regarding resolution of Pearl's case.  

Moving into possibilities for the future, we have the two of wands. Here, we see the use of practical and scientific methods and police work. The case is still open, and law enforcement has not given up. Next, we have the nine of swords, which shows us doubt and delay. We also sometimes see this card to describe mourning; it may be a warning that this will result, here. 

The eight of cups, reversed, appears in the place of fears. This is a fear that the spiritual may take a back seat to they physical, in some way. It is feared, by someone connected to Pearl, that as time goes on, the search will not be carried out with the same diligence as it was immediately after she disappeared. Next, in the place of environment, we have the nine of wands, telling us to be patient, and above all, not to give up. In the place of hopes, we see the ten of cups, which is the hope of a happy ending.....but sadly, the final card is the five of swords, which is violence, vengeance, and cruelty. I always wish readings such as this looked more positive, and I always hope I am wrong in a case like this.

The parts of the reading that deal predominantly with the kidnapping contain a lot of swords, which would point us east. Also, I would look for a stone or brick wall of some sort that is not in good repair. Shallow water, about eight feet is also a factor. I also expect "twenty-one" to be a clue, as well; perhaps within twenty-one miles from where Pearl was last seen. Because travel is so often the mundane meaning of the World, I think there may be railroad tracks nearby.

Robert William Fisher

On April 10 of 2001, and man named Robert William Fisher shot his wife and two children in Scottsdale, Arizona. In what appeared to be an attempt to conceal the murders, he then blew up and burned down their home. No one has had contact with him since the day before this happened. Someone told me about the case, and asked me to see of the Tarot could shed any light on this, so I will see what the cards tell me. This is a horoscope layout, and I asked where and how he was hiding.

The first house, of physical appearance and ego, gives us the two of pentacles, reversed. This is usually a card of pretending to be happy, but in this case, I might see not only pretenses of happiness, but pretenses of being someone else! In line with "pretending", Fisher has changed his appearance. The second house, of money and possessions, has a simple message for us. The seven of pentacles appears reversed. This simply means that Fisher turned his back on every resource for which he had worked up until the murders were committed, and did not look back. In order to successfully run and hide, he incurred a financial loss. Next, in the third house, of written communication, relatives, and short journeys, we have the four of swords, reversed. This shows a bit of unrest surrounding Fisher and his family; he has had communication recently with someone from his past. Hopefully, his former connections and his family will not enable him.

In the place of physical home environment, the fourth house, we have the six of swords. This puts him on the move, quite frequently. Another possibility, with this card, is that Fisher is looking for legal representation. Moving along to the fifth house, which is the house of love affairs and amusement, we see the five of wands. Fisher romances without sincerity; strings people along, not only in romantic relationships but in all relationships; and plays a lot of mental and emotional games in order to keep from being found out. In the sixth house, the house of health, work relationships, and day to day mundane matters, we have the Queen of Cups, reversed. Here, we have a woman who has a lot of unanswered questions about Fisher, and is not happy, either with him, or with the information he has given her about himself.

The seventh house of partnerships, marriage and other types, yields Justice. This speaks of balance in a broad sense, but specifically, in Fisher's case, I think it refers to divorce. We know that he had marital problems prior to the murder of his spouse in 2001, but here we see court involvement in a partnership, yet again. He has apparently hidden himself and become involved with others. In the eighth house, of joint finances, debts, and transitions, we meet the King of Swords. This could mean one of two things: either Fisher has new problems that must be sorted out in civil court and others are demanding to know more about his past, or law enforcement will find him because of his old problems. The King of Swords is often a police officer, lawyer, or judge.When such a person shows up in the eighth house, this often means that the law will become involved in the subject's life. This idea is reinforced in the ninth house, of long journeys, the "establishment", and law: we have the seven of wands, reversed. When the seven of wands falls upside right, that tells of a home or property that is well guarded, but here we find it reversed, telling us that Fisher will have his guard down at an inopportune moment one day, and he will get caught.

The tenth house, showing career, ambition, and social status, gives us the ace of swords. Fisher has tried to start a new career, doing something different. Expect him to be forceful and aggressive, and to have somehow convinced others that he has a degree he does not really have. He also may have another child. The Knight of Wands, reversed, comes up in the eleventh house, of hopes and wishes, social life, and friends. This gives us a glimpse of Fisher's behavior and his physical appearance: he does not play nicely with others and has a reputation for discord, and while in hiding, he is still generally seen as blondish and fair. Coming and going, and temporary relationships are the hallmark of the reversed Knight of Wands, and Fisher tries not to stay in one place too long. The last card, in the twelfth house of self undoing and secret enemies, we see the two of cups. A relationship, probably romantic, will be Fisher's undoing. It happens largely as a result of information he has given about himself that cannot be verified.

The presence of cards from the suit of wands, especially describing travel, environment, and Fisher's aspect, suggest that he may have either moved to the south of where he lived in 2001, or like to spend time to the south. The six of swords often indicates international travel, and that turned up in the place of home environment. Still, I do not think he has put down any permanent new roots anywhere, as of yet. It is only a matter of time before he is found.

Kyron Horman, Updated

Kyron Horman has been missing from Oregon for over six years, now. Recently, his former step mother, Terri Moulton Horman, was was interviewed by Dr. Phil, on his show. This recent interview, and also a move to California, were quite unexpected from her, as she has lived with her parents in Roseburg, Oregon and refused to discuss Kyron's case with anyone, until this year. I have been asked to do another reading for Kyron, and so I will. I will just ask when and how Kyron will be found, and see what the cards tell us.

We begin with the nine of pentacles, a card of material success and safety, crossed by the Knight of Pentacles, reversed....usually a man who is careless about how he does his job! What a paradox! This is founded by the Queen of Swords, who is often a woman connected to law enforcement or the justice system, so for now, I am going to assume that this is a woman who looked for Kyron when he initially went missing. Her work, and possibly her information and notes, will be helpful to those looking for Kyron now. Temperance also appears in the more recent past, which tells us that there must somehow be a way to "temper" past information with new information.

The next card is the Knight of Swords, and he appears as the best possible option, here. While the Queen appears in the past, the Knight appears in the future. These individuals are both from the suit of swords, and it appears, for the moment, that they are law enforcement. This is the young man may find himself charged with giving the notes and clues a second or third look. Make no mistake, the case is still open. The next card, and your reader finds this very troubling, is the Emperor, reversed. This is the "father" card in the deck, and it can either indicate an actual father figure who is misguided and somehow weak, or it can refer to being defrauded out of an inheritance, or it can simply mean that there are elements of immaturity in a situation. I hate to see any of those in Kyron's case. The reversed Emperor corresponds with Temperance, suggesting a person who has not balanced information, tips, or clues very well.

In the place of fears, we have the Knight of Wands, reversed. This is a man whose presence brings discord and division along with him. He is a person who can help solve this crime, yet refuses. He is followed by the Page of swords, also reversed, in the place of environment. Unforeseen events are augered here, along with another, younger person who does not want to assist in helping to find Kyron. The Knight's involvement has to do with the crime, itself, while the Page's involvement has to do with testimony and things heard after the fact. These are both people who need to be questioned. In the place of hopes and fears, we have the nine of swords, which is a card of worry, and I think it almost speaks for itself. The last card is the two of swords, reversed. This is the release of a stalemate, so while I am glad to see it here, I am concerned about the direction affairs may take, as this card warns that things may go the wrong direction. The caution here is about dealing with "rogues", or in this case, dealing with those who may either testify falsely or somewhat falsely, or attempt to protect guilty parties. Nonetheless, it is encouraging to see movement in the case, and to see that authorities are still interested in solving the case.

Once again, the only reference to Kyron's demise here is in the place of worries, rather than actual events. While I understand that the longer a missing person's case drags on, the fewer chances we have of finding him or her safe, I am encouraged. I think the "father figure" indicated by the Emperor should be asked a few questions, one more time. Perhaps this is already in the works. The large number of cards from the suit of swords would normally point us east for a location, but in this case, I really think these cards are referring to the police, the court, and to spoken and written testimony. This means tips, notes, and reliable clues, all put together by the right person. It appears that while this is done, the best thing for everyone else to do is show Kyron's picture to everyone, once again; and keep talking about this case.

More On Aliayah Lunsford

Aliayah Lunsford disappeared five years ago, in Weston, West Virginia. I recently got a request for another reading about her whereabouts, and since she was only three years old at the time she went missing, I have included a computer generated age progression of her picture.

So where could this baby have ended up? We have the King of Wands to begin our answer, crossed by the ace of swords. As this king falls upside right, I will assume that he means Aliayah no harm, and is trying to find her. The ace of swords, when it falls in this position, tells of very strong efforts, and perhaps very strong opinions to go along with the efforts. This suggests that the strong approach may have frightened a witness who is trying not to be fearful about coming forward.

Strength, reversed, appears at the base of this matter, and I do not like to see this card reversed in a reading for any missing child. It tells a story of abuse and bullying. The cards are telling us that this is a large part of the reason for this whole situation. Following this, we have the King of Swords. He is also upside right; and court cards from the suit of swords are often law enforcement. Both kings are professional adult males involved in Aliayah's missing persons case. It is good to see that police are still interested in finding out what happened to Aliayah. Something that is very troubling is the six of swords, reversed. This does not bode well for Aliayah; it speaks of an unfavorable end to the matter, and it tells us that Aliayah has been in the same place for a very long time. Water symbolism should be noted here, only without movement; as if trapped or stuck, somehow. Back to the efforts of those involved in the search: the two of cups (also a watery card) appears as a new possibility. This is good; it augers cooperation from potential witnesses.

In the place of fears, we find the Knight of Wands, reversed. This is a young man, younger than the two kings, and as he falls reversed, his involvement in Aliayah's case is more suspect. Two things that came into her life through him are violence and family discord. Next, in the place of environment, we have the ace of cups, reversed. Once again, we have water symbolism, but this time, we see instability and an overturning of the situation. Also noted is the fact this is the second ace, or card with a value of "1". This could mean that Aliayah was never more than a mile away from her home, or it could be a hint to a possible street name or address. The combination of "one" and "water" stand out. Next, we have Death, reversed. The message on this card, when it falls reversed, is similar to the six of swords, reversed. Nothing has changed in a long time. Something that is very sad is that the reversed Death also describes the hopes of the reversed Knight of Wands. He is hoping that Aliayah is not ever found. The last card we have in this reading is the five of pentacles. This is sadness and loneliness. Sometimes, it speaks of a church, sometimes it speaks of return of the missing; but it usually speaks of sadness when it falls upside right. My sense of this is that the five of pentacles refers to time, here. Five of something.......

I wish there was an easier way to write all of this. I hope Aliayah is found soon.

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.

Megan Renee Foglesong

Megan Renee Foglesong disappeared in Kansas in either November or December of 2015. Her case is a mystery: very few clues and no leads. There is a possibility that she was seen in a liquor store near the Winter Holiday, but no one is certain, and no one is certain about where she went after that. So we will see what the Tarot has to say.

We begin with the Chariot, reversed, crossed by the Devil, which is also read reversed, here. On esoteric levels,the Chariot generally refers to the ability, or lack thereof, to balance to polar opposites and force them to work together in order to effectively turn the wheels and move forward. On the mundane level, this card can speak of transportation or a general failure to accomplish the task at hand. When the Devil appears reversed, he is usually warning of indecisiveness and unproductive hesitancy. As the beginnings of this mystery, Megan may have had problems with her car and not have been able to resolve them on her own.

The causal background of this gives us the four of cups, reversed. Something happened that made Megan feel very trusting and grateful. Next, also in the recent past, we have the Queen of Swords. She is upside right, here, so we can assume that she meant Megan no harm. She is a woman between the ages of 25 and 40, or so, and appears to be the last person who saw Megan before she disappeared. Next, we have the four of swords, reversed. The is unrest, and it looks as if the Queen of Swords gave Megan some advice about relaxing, or calming down about something. Next, and this is the first hint of a serious problem for Megan, we have the seven of cups. This is a card of delusion and wishful thing. As a positive, it can tell us about creativity, but the norm is for this card to point out confused and irrational thinking. So Megan was agitated about something and had some mistaken ideas about what to do next.

The eight of pentacles comes up reversed in the place of fears. This is a serious concern about the lack of skills at a place of employment, or about the inability to find or keep employment. Could Megan's place of work hold some clues? Next, in the place of environment, we have the King of Pentacles. He, too, falls upright here, so it does not appear that he harmed Megan. He is an important factor in finding her, though. He is a man connected, via the suit of pentacles, to the reversed eight of pentacles in the place of fears. His involvement with Megan had to do with business, rather than friendship. He is probably in the same age group as the Queen of Swords, though not connected to her.

Here is where the reading begins to worry me; in the place of hopes, we have the five of swords. This is a card of fighting, violence, and revenge. This is also shown as a hope on Megan's part. It is a possible window to what might have been going on immediately before Megan disappeared. The last card here is the two of wands, reversed. This card, when reversed, often shows physical domination by others. So it looks, here, as if Megan became involved in a conflict and was overpowered. Another feature of the two of wands is sometimes partnership of sorts, or assistance; which means that more than one person knows what happened to Megan. The amount of time that has elapsed and the lack of exact date date of her disappearance are ominous, but the seven of cups, the five of swords, and the reversed two of wands do not make her fate look promising. I really do not like seeing combinations like this.

As for direction and possible location, the swords in the beginning point us east, and it looks as if that was the direction Megan wanted to proceed. The cups, however; point us west. The subtle hint on the seven of cups also suggests an actual body of water. This is a place that is not easy to search, and where objects that are in the water remain stubbornly difficult to locate. South is the direction of the wands in the two of wands, but as the card is reversed, I would not expect much distance to the south.

I really think the key to solving Megan's case is another look at her employment situation and any workmates she may have had. This reading puts her last interaction before going off the grid at wherever or whatever she did for work. There are two individuals who can shed light on all this, and it does not appear that they have been identified or questioned as of yet.

Alicia Marie Folkers Hummel

 On June 1, 2015, Alicia Marie Folkers Hummel was found deceased in Sioux City, Iowa. Her death was determined to be a homicide. A year later, there are no suspects identified, and her murder is unsolved. We will see if the Tarot can be of any help to shed light on who killed her and why.

The reading begins with the Queen of Wands, reversed, crossed by the ace of pentacles. This is interesting; we have a jealous, easily angered woman who is panting after a material prize of some sort, and this shows up as an important part of Alicia's case. In the causal background, we have the Hanged Man, which is a card of waiting and sometimes, of personal sacrifice. Then, as an event in Alicia's recent past, we have the three of swords, reversed. This speaks of family quarrels and of a distinct possibility that Alicia knew a sensitive secret about someone and compromised that person.Watching all this is the Queen of Swords. As this queen falls upright, and her suit is swords, it appears that she is either law enforcement or connected to the judicial system. She is intent upon solving this crime. A challenge she faces, however; is the Page of Swords, reversed. This is a young person who knows all of the information necessary to make an arrest and convict a suspect, but he is lying.

In the place of fears, we find the four of pentacles, reversed. Money was a factor here, yet money and resources are still being wasted. Alicia's killer(s) have not been able to completely cover their tracks and use any resources they had hoped to gain from this act. The physical environment is described by the Wheel of Fortune. This is partly a facade;the murder has not made anyone feel terribly lucky. The other message indicated by this card is that no one has been arrested yet, and the guilty party(s) is feeling as if there will never be an arrest. In hopes, we have the ten of swords,reversed. This almost speaks for itself: when this card falls reversed, we see a temporary position of power, and that is exactly what is driving the hopes and fears of the perpetrator, here. The ten of swords can also be a violent card.The reading ends with the seven of pentacles, reversed. This is clearly anxiety about money, and worry that the very reason for the murder will not come to fruition.

An important factor in solving this murder is in the reversed four of pentacles and the Wheel of Fortune. Right now, evidence is being hidden and stored, yet it remains useless to the guilty party while hidden and stored. As soon as it is no longer hidden, but in use, the case will be solved. Something else I picked up from the four of pentacles in reverse is an ever-so-slight lack of care on the part of the guilty party with evidence left near the crime scene. The crime will eventually be solved, seemingly by a stroke of luck.

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.

More For Kara Kopetsky

I got a comment about Kara Kopetsky today, so I decided to see if an updated reading would give me more detailed information or impressions. She disappeared from the Kansas City area in May of 2007, at age seventeen. Her picture and contact information appears to the left. I did a horoscope layout for this reading.

In the first house, describing the general state of the case, we have the four of cups. This card is the picture of discontent; any help that is offered is not accepted, and no progress is made. This pretty much sums up the attitude of law enforcement here, unfortunately. Next, in the second house of money and finances, we have the Hanged Man, reversed. To go along with the discontent we see in the four of cups, we see a flat refusal to make any sacrifices or earmark any funds budgeted for search efforts for this case. In the third house, communication and short journeys, we have the four of swords. This tells us that the case has been "dormant" for awhile. It also hints that Kara, herself, has been in the same place for a very long time. In the fourth house, the house of environment and also the latter days of life, we find the nine of pentacles. This suggests a house with a garden.

The fifth house gives us the four of pentacles, which is another "stinginess" reference. It seems that there is a serious resistance to spending any resources on finding Kara! The card has appeared in the house of creativity and pleasure, so it applies to spending any time on new ideas, tips, or leads, as well. In the sixth house, of day to day relationships, we find the six of pentacles, which we also noticed in the first reading I did for Kara. There is a perception that "important" people on the political "totem pole" come first in both Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri. The police in both states feel justified, somehow, in not bothering to look any further.

In the seventh house, of partnerships, we have the three of wands, which is an offer of help to find Kara. Perhaps more than one offer. We also have a water reference on this card, too. The idea put forth is looking out across a river into another land or territory for assistance, and this would fit the Missouri/Kansas area in this case. The eighth house, of death, legacies, and debt; shows the Hierophant, reversed. Despite law enforcement, Kara will be found, somehow, by unconventional means. This is followed up by the appearance of the Devil in the ninth house, which rules the "establishment", law, and long journeys. The Devil is often a card of bondage, and for some reason, it seems that there is a deliberate attempt on the part of law enforcement to keep this case from being solved. This naturally opens the door for the case to be solved another way.

In the house that governs career and social standing, the tenth house, we find the nine of swords, reversed. This can mean imprisonment; or just suspicion and shame. Its appearance in the house of career is a bit troubling; however. It suggests that someone who should have been able to solve this case with routine police work dropped the ball and didn't manage the whole thing very well. Moving along the eleventh house, of friends, hobbies, and social life, we have the Queen of Wands, reversed. This is a jealous, ill tempered woman who is somehow connected to the effort to close Kara's case without solving it. And in the twelfth house, of secrets and secret enemies, we have the King of Swords, reversed. Court cards from the suit of swords are often members of law enforcement or officials of the judicial system, and this appears to reiterate what has been suggested by the rest of this reading: a member of the police force handling Kara's case has deliberately failed.

This reading is not terribly different from the initial reading I did, a couple of years ago. I think I got a clearer idea of the "water" reference: a river big enough to support travel and commerce, and also big enough to serve as a boundary of sorts. I also still believe Kara was killed by a young man; and I think it happened in a residence, where he had enough privacy to commit such a crime without alerting neighbors or bystanders. A difference in this reading is that while the last reading hinted a bit at law enforcement only caring about "politically important" cases, this reading came out and said it! This reading contained much, much more about the investigation, and why it failed, than the last reading. Once again, I wish I had something more positive, and I hope that Kara is found soon.

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.

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 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.

Who Killed Joshua Wayne Crawford?

On July2, 2003, twenty-one year old Joshua Crawford was found murdered in his Frederick, Maryland apartment. The murder has yet to be solved, so we will see what light the Tarot can shed.

I used a horoscope spread this reading, and the first house, of appearance and personality, is 
represented by the Chariot, reversed. The message here is revenge. Egos had obviously been out of balance, and two parties, the victim and his killer, had not been able to find a middle ground. The card for the second house, money and possessions, is the ace of pentacles. This gives the murder a monetary slant. Some either took something material at the time of the murder, or had something financial to gain. When we move into the third house, of short journeys and communication, we find the seven of swords, reversed. When this card is upside right, it tells a tale of half measures and of taking things to which one has no right, but upside down, the meaning is good planning and success, albeit clandestine! Lungs and breathing are often indicated in this house, as, sometimes, are relatives and friends. So it appears that this murder was actually premeditated, by someone known to the victim. 

The fourth house, of home environment, turns up the six of swords, reversed. The six of swords is a card of travel, but when it appears reversed, it tells of the opposite. I think this refers to Joshua's body being left behind, in his apartment. It may also be telling us that Joshua refused to budge on something, or "go along" with someone else's plans. In the fifth house, of creativity and pleasure, the nine of wands appears, and the message is simple: impatience. Children are also represented by the fifth house; did Joshua have children and child support issues? In the house of employment relationships and everyday affairs, we find the King of Swords, and as he is upside right, we will assume that he is kindly disposed toward Joshua. Court cards in the suit of swords are often law enforcement or lawyers, so did law enforcement find Joshua? Or did his employer report that he had not been to work? This is the person who either found Joshua, or set matters in motion in order to have him found. 

In the seventh house, we have the seven of cups. This is the house of partnerships, marriage in particular, and of close relationships and public perception, The seven of cups tells us that Joshua was a bit of a dreamer, and possibly a romantic at times........but how this factors into his murder is is as if someone had written him off because of his dreams! The fallout from the death, itself, is represented in the eighth house by the six of pentacles, reversed. This is jealousy, but over material matters and money, rather than romance. The ninth house, of law, the "establishment", and, (ahem!) of long journeys, shows us the six of cups. The six of cups usually describes childhood memories and childhood friends. To see it here, in a reading about an unsolved murder, is disturbing, especially in the house of law and long journeys! The ninth house also governs education and criminal investigations, and I think this card is telling us that the murderer is someone who attended school at the same time as Joshua, and shared some childhood experiences. This person also sidestepped scrutiny and traveled at convenient times, and to this day, has not been looked at properly. The tenth house, career and social status, describes the killer with Strength, reversed. This is a person favors discord and abuses any position or opportunity that comes his way. In the eleventh house, we have Death, reversed. The killer's life is rather stagnant now, without much of a social life. His undoing appears to be lack of movement and inattention to details. I go out on a limb here, a bit, with a physical description, but I would expect him to be overweight, as well. The tenth and eleventh houses often describe feet, legs, and ankles, and both Strength and Death reversed tell a story of laziness. The twelfth house has the Hierophant, reversed. This is technology or a clue that is not standard in a murder investigation, but; nonetheless, plays a crucial role in investigating the crime. A secret makes it's way into the open in a very unorthodox way, and the murderer ends up surprised at his unlikely adversary. It is my opinion that he cannot hide forever, and that Joshua's murder will be solved one day.

Who Killed Tracy Lynn Kirkpatrick

On March 15, 1989, seventeen year old Tracy Kirkpatrick was found stabbed to death at her Frederick, Maryland part time job at a shopping center. My question for the cards is "who killed Tracy, and will there be justice?"

The first two cards here are Temperance, crossed by the two of swords. This shows that there was a harmonious partnership and combination in Tracy's life, and the two of swords is a card of temporary truces and stalemates, so this would hardly fit in with the scenario of harmony! Unless....someone was quietly waiting for mishaps or relationship problems, in order to influence Tracy's decisions. This gives us a basic backdrop, of sorts, for exchange that led to the murder.

We find the five of cups beneath this. This is rejection and disappointment, with the rejected party failing to look at anything else. It is also cited here as a motive. The next card is the Moon, which is mystery, betrayal, deceit, and actions carried out under the cover of darkness, both literal and figurative. The ace of swords follows of the heels of the Moon, and it describes force, lots of force, both in love and hatred. This card often appears in readings about subjects who have been stabbed. Following this, we have the Hierophant. The Hierophant is the card of the conformist, and here, I think we are being told that the murderer is someone who can conform very well, and pretend to be an upstanding member of society. He has the "cover" of social approval, and over twenty-six years, has not had one worry about accountability. Not one. 

The state of the investigation right now is described by the Fool, the card of beginnings. This gives us all an idea of where the investigation of Tracy Kirkpatrick's murder actually sits. It has not actually taken any direction, toward any viable suspect, and this suspect is still at large. The card which is given to describe public opinion, and the surrounding details of investigators, themselves, is the eight of pentacles, reversed. This is no surprise. When the eight of pentacles falls reversed, it speaks of lackluster work done by lazy, untalented people. The seven of swords reversed in the place of hopes shows us a snapshot of Tracy's community hoping that someone competent will one day start the process for justice in this case. The last card is the eight of cups, showing that justice will be delayed indefinitely unless the community gives the police in Maryland a lot of pressure to make an arrest.

What Happened To Melanie Melanson?

Fourteen year old Melanie Melanson disappeared in Massachusetts in 1989, and her case was featured on Dateline. It was several nights before Halloween; someone must know something about her fate. Let's see what the cards tell us.

We start with the three of swords crossed by the Empress. The is unusual; this combination is seen in divorces involving custody disputes much more often than it is seen in missing persons readings. But okay, we have it, so perhaps it establishes a motive. The Empress is here, presenting as a woman in the role of mother, and somehow, some in-fighting, perhaps over Melanie, is part of the situation. Beneath this, we see the Queen of Wands, reversed. As we find this queen reversed, we can be sure that she means Melanie no good. Jealousy is the usual motive for a woman described this way. She would have a quick temper and an impulsive nature, and perhaps, red or blondish hair. This is followed by Temperance. After the personal violence of the three of swords and the impulse of the jealous queen, we have Temperance, which does not seem to follow the story line here, but perhaps it does. Temperance tells of not only warm and fuzzy combinations, but effective combinations, and here, it is telling us that the killer had help consisting of accomplices, who apparently knew how to get away with murder. Evidence was hidden at first, then tampered with. 

The three of cups follows this; and it is a "water" card. Because it's place describes things that happen later, not right away, this water came into the situation later, not immediately. Evidence was destroyed or dispensed with bit by bit, and water was used as a dumping ground. Possibly near a dam or a water purification plant; hence the reference to temperance. Another distinct possibility of the three of cups has to do with alliances: three people who think they have dispensed with this matter and have agreed upon solidarity and to "alibi" each other. 

The next card is the nine of wands. This refers to an air of being "on edge" by someone involved, and could also give us a clue to location. Nine and three seem to be numbers of interest, and names that have to do with "tempering", such as "mixer" or "smelter" may be possible locations, too. Those involved waited until the heat was off and the search efforts had waned, and moved Melanie somewhere else. 

The eight of cups is the first card on the staff, and it describes perspective, from the perpetrators viewpoint. This is overlooking hills, with steams behind and possibly a larger, more still body of water ahead. The next card is the ace of pentacles, reversed. It falls in the place of environment, and this card usually means a missed career opportunity. I think it tells us of missed opportunities by law enforcement, in this case. As a location, it depicts a well manicured park or garden when it's upside right, perhaps with cultivated flowers, but as it falls reversed, it would describe an area that is no longer kept up. In the place of hopes, we have the king of cups, appearing as a man who is still trying to find Melanie. And as a final outcome, we get the ten of cups, which tells us that Melanie actually will be found one day, while she still has family members looking for her. I wish I could deliver better news about Melanie, herself, and I hope that she is found soon.

Dorothy Scofield

Twelve year old Dorothy Scofield disappeared in Florida on July 22, 1976, while her mother was at DMV, taking a drivers' test. Dorothy went to a department store and had agreed to meet her mother later, but never made it. That was the last time she was seen; it has been almost thirty-nine years.

This reading starts with the two of swords, reversed, crossed by Justice. I already do not like it. The two of swords often comes up reversed when something that was well enough left alone is suddenly active again, but moving in an unproductive direction. It may mean that Dorothy's mother initially was not in favor of Dorothy going by to the store by herself, but agreed to it against her better judgement. For this to be crossed by shows challenges to finding Dorothy, at best. 

The Wheel of Fortune shows up to describe the event wherein Dorothy disappeared. It was, indeed, a random event; Dorothy had not been stalked, but the situation was an unexpected opportunity for the perpetrator. Also, I think a vehicle was involved; it looks as if someone offered Dorothy a ride somewhere, a`la the reference to a "wheel", and it seemed opportune to her, as well. The next description we get here is the four of cups, reversed. Dorothy had never met this person; when the four of cups appears reversed, speaks of relationships and chance meetings with people, but new people. So this places Dorothy with a stranger.

Now we get some information about the stranger. The three of pentacles comes up reversed, to show us that this person either does not have a skill, or does not have a job, or both. So we know that whoever this it, it is someone who is not gainfully employed. And the next card describing him (yes....I believe it WAS a male) is the Page of Wands, reversed. This is a young person who never seems to contribute much in the way of anything positive, and he may have gotten some bad news, as well, that day. 

The crime itself is represented by the eight of cups, reversed, which is the spiritual abandoned for the physical, in this case, sexual perversion. It is followed by the three of swords, reversed. In a reading, the three of swords in this position often means that one of the subjects of the reading was personally compromised by another subject in the reading. In this case, I think Dorothy was able to describe her attacker, and he did not want to be identified. This card often refers to custodial interference, as well. So we can see that he had no intentions of allowing Dorothy to go back to her mother. The next card tells us more about the perpetrator as time went on......he went from being the reversed Page of Wands to being the reversed Knight of Wands. He became a man who never seems to have stable relationships and likes to argue and fight. He may have reddish or light brown hair and be of fair complexion. Although he should be in his late fifties or possibly early sixties now, he is still represented by a knight, rather than a king, because he failed to "grow up". The last card here is the Fool, reversed. This refers to the unsolved case, suggesting that several key choices made were in error. 

There do not appear to be many hints about location in this reading, but I will take a stab at it. There are two "three" value cards, yet they are reversed. One is pentacles, which points us north, and one is swords, which points us east. But they are both reversed! It would appear that the kidnapper switched locations for some reason, and still did not travel very far with Dorothy, possibly "three" to the north, then three to the east. Also, the three of swords comes up in the place of environment, and this card suggests exposure to the elements and to storms, so I would look for Dorothy to be outside. The combination of the upside down Knight of Wands and the upside down Fool is the biggest problem, though. There either was, or is, an opportunity to question the perpetrator, and that opportunity has somehow been overlooked.

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.

Kara Kopetsky

Kara Kopetsky, of Belton, Missouri, was last seen at her school on May 4, 2007. She was initially listed as a runaway by law enforcement, but it has been seven awfully long time for a runaway to stay hidden. So I will put the obvious questions to the Tarot.

We begin with the seven of swords, reversed, crossed by the eight of swords. The seven of swords generally denotes a theft, or an effort that is incomplete due to lack of ability or resources....the subject is attempting to take or do something he or she does not have a right to take or do. But here, it is reversed, but crossed by the eight of swords, a card of entrapment and restraint. What this gives us is a picture of someone who THOUGHT he or she could either take or get away with something, but actually couldn't. It was tried, though. The background for this is the King of Wands, who is an unyielding older male whose advice should have been followed, and the six of cups, a card of childhood and memories. So a deeper picture of a conflict here has to do with being a child vs. being an adult, and being recognized as an adult. Somehow, and I am not sure where this fits.....a yellow cat seems to be part of the scenario.

Above this, we have the Empress, who is the mother in this situation. Kara's mother is still looking for her, and will not stop until Kara is found. And a future event is Judgement, which is a renewal of search efforts for some reason, possibly an overlooked clue suddenly come to light. As a physical location and event, this card would literally depict an object suddenly being revealed in water deep enough for hidden objects, such as a lake or a reservoir. The swords point us east, yet not east.....once again, the seven is reversed. I would expect the answer to lead us somewhere rather close to where Kara was last seen, within thirty miles. 

The Emperor appears at the base of the staff; he is a male with authority in this case, and if not Kara's father, has an air of fatherly authority. He is upside right, so I will assume he is kindly disposed toward Kara, and looking for her, as is her mother. The six of pentacles appears in the place of environment, lending an element of "you get what you pay for", or "give and take" to this situation. Did someone perceive Kara as owing money? Was some sort of blackmail involved here? This card points to a trade or an exchange as having taken place between Kara and someone immediately before she disappeared. The next card is a card of regret: the five of cups. The regret is not on Kara's part, however; it is on the part of the last person to see her. While this person would be a man, I am not seeing a romantic relationship. In fact, the nature of the acquaintance between Kara and this person may have been the source of tension between Kara and the King of Wands. But the five of cups speaks to regret and loss, things that were not intended. It is also another water card. The last card we have is the Moon. The Moon is often psychic knowledge, but can also indicate deception and can tie into the aspect of that which is hidden by the High Priestess. We can be quite certain that Kara probably did not run away from home, but encountered some very bad circumstances that were covered up and well hidden. As a physical location, the Moon is also a watery card, specifically in a place where the reflection of the moon can be seen on the water. 

I wish this reading could have given us a more positive outlook. I always advise not to ever give up or stop looking for a missing person until he or she is found.

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.

National Missing Childrens' Day Is May 25

Today is National Missing Childrens' Day, enacted by Ronald Reagan in 1983, because Etan Patz had disappeared in 1979, and the number of missing children who had not been found was inexcusable. Clearly, the media, in only giving these cases cursory coverage, had it's priorities confused. Above is a reminder about ways that personal information can get into the wrong hands. One does not even need a computer, or social media online, to give the wrong person the information that can leading to stalking and a missing persons case.
