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.
