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.
