Toni Heartsong

Bob and Toni Heartsong lived in Florida, and were married for almost twenty-seven years when Bob came home one evening and found Toni brutally murdered. After about eight years, the state of Florida charged Bob with Toni's murder, but Bob was later acquitted. At this point, there are no additional suspects, and Toni Heartsong's murder remains unsolved. The question I have posed is "Who killed Toni Heartsong, and why?
The general atmosphere is described by the Sun, reversed, crossed by the Emperor. Here we have a good situation, albeit not entirely perfect, with a fatherly male influence. In this case, the person represented as the fatherly male influence was somewhat exasperated, as was Toni, with the matter that eventually led to this murder. As a founding circumstance and attitude on the part of someone involved, the four of cups appear. This is ingratitude and dissatisfaction. Someone expected more of Toni, and possibly Bob, somewhere along the line, than they felt they should give. The whole matter seems to have drifted into the past at this point; we get the Hanged Man, reversed, to tell us this. When the Hanged Man appears reversed, this usually means n unwillingness to sacrifice, especially for the greater good, such as within a family, but sometimes it simply means egotism; but in the same vein: one's preoccupation with ego is more important than any team or community. Thus describes a large part of the motivation for the murder. It was rather personal.
The card describing the ultimate goal of the murderer is the ten of swords, which is a very violent card. It also speaks of abrupt and final endings, so to see this card in the goals and plans of the murderer tells us that this murder was premeditated. The next card is the eight of swords, which is entrapment with no escape. Toni was cornered after her routine or schedule was learned by someone. The card describing the perpetrator's fears is the eight of pentacles, which is the card of the apprentice. Something this person did not want to do was start all over again in a new job, or begin to train for one. In fact, this person really didn't want to take the time and trouble to learn work related skills at all. The eight of wands, reversed, describes the family atmosphere. This is jealousy and domestic problems. In the place of hopes, we have the Hierophant, which is tradition, and often marriage. It would appear that both Bob and Toni valued their marriage and their family relationships. The last card is a court card, and I believe it is the perpetrator; the Knight of Cups, reversed. This is a young man, somewhere between the ages of twenty-one and thirty-five or so. The Knight of Cups reversed is generally someone who is dishonest, especially in regard to business matters. This is someone who commits fraud and scams. Also, light brown hear and blue or hazel eyes are likely.
The presence of three eights is significant in this reading; coupled with the four of cups as a founding circumstance, it would appear that someone wanted Toni to help finance and idea or venture, and she determined that it was not a good risk. The eights refer to mastery, and they have come up in places that bring mastery and ability on the part of the victim as underlying causes for her murder. Could someone have gotten angry with her for seeing through a fraud and wanted revenge? A lot of speculation has focused on Bob, but according to this reading, the murderer was younger than Bob.

Lorrin Whitehead

Lorrin Whitehead, forty-three, pictured to the left, was last seen in February of this year, in Bannockburn, Victoria. She had been grocery shopping for her family. There has been no activity in her bank account, which is always a reason for concern, and she is also diabetic. 

The basis is Temperance crossed by the four of pentacles. Temperance is good management with time and resources, but the four of pentacles crossing it shows a challenge in that area, but what could that possibly have to do with Lorrin Whitehead's disappearance? Below this, we have the ten of swords, which is not a good card in a reading such as this. It is a card of violence and ruin. Behind the basis is the three of wands, which looks like help planning........someone may have asked her for assistance with something. The wands would point south. Following this, we have the nine of cups, reversed. When this card falls reversed, it tells of mistakes, and I think the mistake here had to do with trust: Lorrin somehow placed her trust in the wrong person. The next card is the Empress. This is likely the reason Lorrin was in the position to trust the wrong person; a desire to help someone, from a nurturing standpoint.

The card at the base of the staff, in the place of self image, is the three of cups, reversed. This indicates someone with self indulgent tendencies and it sometimes indicates endings. Cups are water and emotions, and so far, there have been two reversed cups in this reading. Somehow, misplaced trust with someone who should have been congenial rather than violent is key in this situation. The next card, describing the general environment surrounding the disappearance, is the Chariot. This is conquest, and playing two extremes, successfully, against each other. On purely mundane levels, this could also be transportation by vehicle. So we see Lorrin transported in a vehicle that is not her own. Next we have the eight of cups, which is dissatisfaction with the very thing from which the subject expected satisfaction. The final outcome is the ace of wands, reversed. This is a disappointment. Whoever is indicated in the three of wands.......and that card DOES speak of involvement of at least one other person, has not reaped the benefits expected from his or her actions. I do not like to see the ten of swords in any reading about a missing person, but I always hope, until the case is closed, that the person is found safe. Here, I would expect the perpetrator to have had several changes of heart concerning the concealment of evidence, possibly trying water first, then burning evidence. West was considered, but south was somehow more convenient, and there could be multiple places containing or related to evidence. I would expect three miles south and three miles west of the last place Lorrin was seen to be important.

Kathryn Adam

Kathryn Adams disappeared in April of 1993, while working for Leggs as a delivery person. She disappeared in Salina, Kansas after visiting a Kwik Stop where her image was caught on a security camera. That was the last known sighting of her; the van she was driving turned up at a restaurant that was closed for remodeling.
The reading starts with the seven of swords crossed by the King of Swords. This speaks to legal matters; the seven of swords is a card that usually describes the attempt to take more than one can handle, or take something that does not belong to one. The King of Swords is often a policeman, lawyer, or judge, or a man of authority connected to law. In this case, he was well disposed toward Kathryn, and was trying to stop her from something either unnecessary or unwise. As a bit of background, we get the nine of swords, which is worry, and lots of it. The cause of this worry is the Sun, reversed, which speaks of home, marriage, and family in a state of upheaval or unrest. In possible outcomes for the matters weighing on Kathryn's mind when she disappeared, the seven of pentacles appears, reversed. The message here is that Kathryn was about to be forced to part with something, or with money, for which she had worked hard, and she did not think it was just and fair. The next card is the ten of cups. Usually, the ten of cups is a wonderful card, but in answer to the question about Kathryn's missing persons case, I find it troubling. It bespeaks an ending here, in specific, an ending to a family situation or marriage, without the marriage actually having to end.
The first card on the staff is judgement, reversed. As it falls in the place of fears, this card's clear message is the fear of death. The next card, depicting an important feature of Kathryn's surroundings at the time, is the Queen of Wands. This would be a woman over the age of seventeen with reddish hair (possibly dyed) and an impulsive nature. She is not reversed, so at the moment, I think she is friend, rather than foe. In the place of hopes, we find the Wheel of Fortune, reversed, which tells us that in addition to family problems, Kathryn somehow found herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. The last card is the ace of wands, reversed, which is a dealing that did not materialize, or turn out the way Kathryn had anticipated.
Two sevens appeared in this reading, and it seems plausible that they may refer to a route number or a place. The pentacles point north, but are reversed here, and the swords point east. Seven, ten, and twenty seem to be significant numbers; between seven and twenty miles to the east, then off the beaten path a bit. The Sun has shown up reversed, and when I asked why Kathryn disappeared, I drew the Moon, which, in this case, speaks of mistrust and dishonesty. Also, these two cards together in a reading often refer to outdoors, "under the sun", or "in moonlight".

Dylan Redwine Found

Dylan Redwine was found earlier this week. His remains were discovered about ten miles to the northwest of Vallecito. A cause of death has not yet been determined. I feel so sad for Dylan's mom and brother.

Has Kyron Horman's Trail Gone Completely Cold?

Kyron Horman. Still missing after three years. The only question I can think of that hasn't been put to divination yet is this: has the trail completely gone cold?
For the past, I pulled these three cards: Temperance, the Emperor, reversed, and the ace of cups. Temperance, as it is a card of good combinations and management, illustrates that earlier in the investigation, tips and leads were managed better than they are now, as was the flow of information between agencies involved in the search. The next card, the Emperor reversed, points to emotional immaturity and dependence on parents. It could also mean the loss of an inheritance. Somehow, a material loss which was also considered family property played a role early in the investigation. Yet, the ace of cups appears, telling us that all was not lost, and despite the lack of familial harmony, there was still hope.
For the present, I drew the three of cups, reversed, the five of cups, and the six of swords. This is an interesting and somewhat familiar message. The message of the three of cups when it falls reversed is often one of excesses and indulgence, and this seems to be the most fitting meaning of the card in this situation. Possibly too much alcohol consumption on the part of an adult connected to Kyron's situation. Next, we have the five of cups, reminding us of regret, and reinforcing the theme of loss, as first seen in the Emperor reversed. The overindulgence and material loss are connected. The six of swords follows this, and it is a card of travel. Either Kyron, or a witness who can tell us more, has moved away from the scene of the crime. This is rather disturbing, as it comes as an answer to the question about how Kyron's trail went cold.
For the future, I drew the five of swords, the seven of cups, and the Fool. How very interesting. The five of swords is anger, rage, and simple revenge. I do not like to see this in answer to why Kyron's case went cold, either. The seven of cups tells us that there have been many clues, but nothing that has solidly materialized; and energies and resources have been too widely scattered without enough direction. The Fool represents a new and vital choice that will be made in this case, and it will bring a whole new angle to finding Kyron. I believe that someone will be forced, with new motivations, to make a wiser and more productive choice about offering evidence and information. It looks as if it will be the result of a new investigator, or a new prosecutor, who finds a way to motivate people who are already involved in the case. I hope this happens soon. Kyron has been missing for over three years now.

How Can Timothy Pitzen Be Found?

Timothy Pitzen has been missing for over two years now. Someone recently asked me to update his reading, and it took me awhile to think of the appropriate question for this, but I think I have thought of one. I also hope that there will be an age progressed photo of Timothy Pitzen soon.

So how can Timothy be found? This reading starts with the eight of cups, reversed, crossed by the six of cups. This is a message of celebration....reversed eight of cups....and childhood memories. Somehow, I think that this message has to do with the very last publicly known activity engaged by Timothy. Play and amusement parks........
Beneath this, as a causative factor, we have the King of Cups, reversed. This is a deceptive adult male who played a role in the past of both Timothy and his mother. I would expect him, along with being a decisive adult, to have light brown hair and hazel or bluish eyes. The Lovers also comes up reversed in this incident's past. This card, in this position, could tell us about a bad choice made by someone involved, or a bad relationship, and I am leaning toward the latter. Someone who knows something, yet has not surfaced as a suspect, is the Queen of Swords, reversed. She is cruel, rather dishonest, manipulative, and threatening. She plays a role here, and has managed to stay hidden. Someone who can help is described by the King of Pentacles appearing in the near future of this case, and he is a man who has the means and intent to find Timothy. He may have a bit of leverage in some way, too, either political or practical.
In the place of doubts and fears, we find the five of pentacles reversed coming up as an obstacle. Reversed, this card means good companionship and spiritual interest, so it is interesting to find it in the place of doubts. The environment is described by the four of cups, reversed, which tells us of gratitude and new relationships. In the place of hopes, we have the four of swords, reversed, denoting that renewed activity after a lull, and possibly a new direction in efforts made to find Timothy, can yield results. Perhaps this goes hand in hand with the Queen of Swords, and no one has looked at her yet as a suspect. She is hidden, yet known. Swords symbolize air, which takes us to the East, and pentacles, as in the King of Pentacles, is earth, and points North. Northeast. The last card is the Devil, reversed. This is the final outcome, and the Devil reversed is release from bondage. The biggest problem here is hesitancy to act, and hesitancy to question EVERYONE connected to this case.

Hugues De La Plaza

Hugues De La Plaza, a young man from France, was found dead in San Francisco in 2007, having bled to death from stab wounds. To this day, his death remains unsolved, and it was rumored by some to be a suicide,, but evidence points strongly to homicide.
So how did this violence happen? The reading starts with the Tower, crossed by the four of swords, and while I was shuffling the cards, the Lovers fell out, as if to shed some additional light on matters. The Tower represents an implosion of bad habits and bad decisions, forcing a change. The four of swords is a card of rest, or as in this case, of waiting. I think that someone was waiting, either in Hugues's apartment, or outside of it, for Hugues to come home that night. Below this, describing the background of the situation, we have the three of pentacles, which is the card of the craftsman. This would indicate a connection from where Hugues worked, or made his living. Behind this, representing motive, we have the Empress, reversed, showing a female influence. As she is reversed, this female would not be favorably inclined toward Hugues, and her aspect was completely out of balence.
Following the event, background, and motive, we have the eight of pentacles, which is another "work and career" card. This whole matter somehow has a connection to Hugues's workplace. It is also distinctly possible, in fact, almost certain, that Hugues knew his assailant and was not that surprised at the conflict. The Page of Cups is next, and he would be a youngish man with light brown hair and hazelish or bluish eyes. He has a strong connection to the reversed Empress. Could the Empress have been involved in a relationship wherein she and her mate were attempting to start a family? In any event, there is no indication that Hugues was interested in a family, so the committed relationship of the Empress was not with him.
The six of cups reversed appears in the place of the fears of the person who committed the murder, and it WAS a murder. There is an element of "living in the past" here, for this person. His relationship with the Empress had changed, somehow, and he blamed Hugues! The next card, describing the environment surrounding this, is the five of swords, reversed. This is revenge, purely and simply. It would also not surprise me to hear that he was stabbed five times. The Queen of Pentacles, reversed, represent the murderer's hopes. This definately involved a woman, and betrayal and mistrust were clear factors, as this Queen is reversed. The final outcome is described by the two of swords, reversed. This suggests that perhaps the culprit had not fully decided to kill Hugues while he waited for him to come home, but conversation and events began moving in a direction that was difficult to control. Sadly, the factors in this are workplace connections, revenge, and a woman.

Update For Kate Phillips

Katherine Phillips disappeared over a year and a half ago, and while her biological father is still in jail over this, Katherine has never been found. There were a couple of requests for an update.
I drew three cards for the past, which are the four of pentacles, reversed; the nine of swords, reversed; and the ten of cups. The four of pentacles reversed tells us about the wasting of resources instead of prudence in the area of paying bills. Clearly, someone involved in the situation with Katherine did not want to grow up and learn to budget money. Next, we have the nine of swords, reversed, which is worry, followed by the ten of cups, which, I believe, is Katherine's birth. While the birth was definately a happy event, and Katherine was very wanted, her presence caused worry for at least one party. But......everyone following this case already knew this much!
The next three cards are the four of wands, reversed;the ace of cups, and the four of swords, reversed. Four is a number that represents Family in Taosim, and in my opinion, the presence of these two fours in Katherine's reading screams "family"! Upright, the four of wands tells of happy family events, weddings, or parties, and reversed it often tells the same story, but sometimes as clouded, or imperfect happiness. The ace of cups refers, once again, to birth and happy news. The four of swords reversed is sudden activity after dormance. So.....the disappearance was planned, somewhat, and "sprung" on someone who did not suspect.
Finally, we have the seven of cups, reversed, representing the use of will and reason....we can safely assume that responsible party was not "insane". This is followed by the four of cups, also reversed. Another "four"......this one referring to new relationships and communications. Still a reference to "family"........I think the baby is somewhere near the biodad's last residence. All of the cups in this reading also speak of water, as water is the element that relates to cups, and point west. I do not think this baby ended up very far to the west, though. The final card is the Wheel of Fortune, which tells me that when Katherine is found, it will be by lucky chance. Ten is the value of the Wheel of fortune; perhaps that is a number of importance here.....could it corrospond to the ten of cups? Tenth Road? Ten feet? Ten ponds? Water is undoubtedly part of this picture now, whether is was when Katherine first disappeared or not. She is also not far from the home of someone in her family.  

Update For Sierra Lamar

There was a recent request for a reading for Sierra Lamar, who disappeared a year ago, with a focus on what Sierra was thinking at the time this happened, and possibly, the cause of death. I can certainly try this, and see what the Tarot has to say about those things.
This is rather a disturbing reading. It starts with the Emperor crossed by Temperance. The Emperor is the "father" card of the Tarot, and as he falls reversed here, I am going to assume that he is favorably disposed toward Sierra. Temperance is a card of good combinations and relationships, so it would seem that Sierra's father or someone who served as a father figure in her life had recently given Sierra some advice concerning boyfriends, drugs, or underage drinking. Beneath this, we find the six of swords, upside down. When this card falls upright, it is a card of travel. We see it reversed, here, which means that Sierra did not travel far, if at all, on the last day she was seen alive. It also tells of situations that have no escape, and it looks as if she was warned by her father about this particular possibility. The World also appears in Sierra's past, immediately before she disappeared. She had apparently just decided to do something that she saw as a positive step, or move, in her life. The five of swords overpowered her, though. Anger and revenge were involved. The Page of Wands appears as a message she was waiting to read or hear, but never got to see. Perhaps this was when her phone was taken from her. It seems that Sierra's last thoughts had to do with texts, messages, communication, and probably her phone.
The Hirophant, a card of tradition and sometimes of marriage, figured heavily into Sierra's fears. This is a bit unexpected, because Sierra was so young. The Knight of Cups, a romantic contact, occupied her thoughts. The Queen of Swords, reversed, was another aspect of Sierra's fears. There was a feminine influence here. The Queen of Swords reversed is intolerant and violent. The placement of all the cards from the suit of swords in this reading suggests strangulation or suffocation, as Swords' element is Air. Of course, the meaning could be more literal and suggest actual knives, too, but I tend to think strangulation. Justice, reversed, falls as the final outcome. Excessive severity, unjust punitive actions, and injustice in general is the meaning here. Sierra had either overstepped a boundery, or was perceived to have done so, and someone (or possibly two someones....a male and a female) about whom the Emperor had warned her decided to seek revenge. It does not appear that Sierra expected this, or saw it coming.

Two Sad Updates

The remains of Skylar Neese were finally identified a couple of weeks ago, after she was found, during the winter, in Pennsylvania, a few miles over the West Virginia border and from the area where she lived. Her mother issued a statement. While her remains have been identified, the circumstances surrounding Skylar's death have barely begun to be investigated or explained. Skylar's mother, in the above referenced statement, makes a very relevant point about law enforcement's treatment of situations involving teens who have allegedly "run away" from home and are missing persons. The second update is about Robin Pope. The remains of a woman have been found near the area where she was reported to have last been seen, and Maryland is working to identify the person. There are speculations that she may be Robin Pope.

More information, as of Sunday, March 24; Robin Pope has been identified through dental records.

Robin Pope

Robin Pope was last seen in Maryland on March 1 of this year. So far, a few clues have been found, but no one has heard from Robin.
So what happened to Robin Pope and where is she? The reading begins with the six of swords, reversed, crossed by the seven of wands. The six of swords usually involves travel when it is upright, but reversed, it means quite the opposite. But water is somehow still part of the picture, just not travel over it or through it. The seven of wands is all about guarded knowledge or guarded property. I am going to venture a guess that about six to ten feet of water on private property, where law enforcement would need a warrent to search, is an important part of this picture.
As a foundation for this event, we have the three of swords, reversed. This tells of romantic and marital break-ups, and of difficulty in reaching agreements when rifts have taken place. This is an event that served as a cause of Robin's disappearance. The next card shows us the Knight of Swords attempting to disappear into the past. This is often a card of violence, either an event or a person, and here I would say he represents both. As a person, he would be a middle aged male who is capable of violence and has a motive for the same. Possibly blue eyes and light brown or greying hair. A possible future connection this man may seek out is the King of Pentacles, reversed. This is an older man, who is focused on money. As he falls reversed, do not expect him to be honest or have Robin's best interest at heart. Another future omen is the eight of swords. This fortells difficulty locating Robin, and tells us that wherever Robin is, she is trapped. The message here is similar, in this case, to what we saw in the reversed six of swords........non-movement and a few feet of water. I hope that I am wrong. Another possible message here is that the case gets stalled for awhile, for some reason.
The person who knows where Robin is would like to avoid the discovery of evidence by young people hunting or playing, and finding evidence by accident. The Page of Wands appears in the place of his fears, and he is already worried about young people, or, for some reason, children, divulging and announcing his secrets. Strength reversed appears in the place of environment, telling us that abuse of power has also played a role in this situation. Either someone in a position of authority has dropped the ball and refused to bring Robin home and have this perpetrator charged, or the person on whose property the evidence, or Robin herself, is hidden knows exactly what is going on and refuses to allow anyone to search. In the place of hopes, we find the Chariot, reversed. This is a card of voided projects and sometimes, unthical victories. Also, there is a message here that is similar to the reversed six of swords and the eight of swords; by this perpetrator's design, Robin has not been found. The final outcome here is Temperance, which is a good card. It points to workable and productive combinations, so we can expect forensic evidence, the mundane and physical meaning of this card here, and law enforcement, the "people" part of the mix, to work together and solve this case.

Kansas Jane Doe

This is a very sad story about an unsolved murder. A woman who has never been identified was found in 1987, and no one has come forward to claim or bury her. The poster to the right has the contact information, in case someone looking at this has direct knowledge concerning her case, and I will do a reading for her. We begin with the three of swords, reversed, crossed by the three of wands. This tells a story, already, of a subject (the identified woman) who compromised another person legally, and took some backlash and retaliation for it. Either she shred testimony against another person, or had her own lawsuit/divorce/custody case in progress against another person. So we know see a possible reason why this has happened. The three of wands is a card of efforts undertaken with help, and inn cases of criminal activity, accomplices. Whoever murdered her had at least one accomplice. This is founded by the two of swords, which tells us that the circumstances surrounding this case had been at a standstill for awhile, but had just become active, as seen via the three of swords. Next, as a past circumstance, we see the two of pentacles, reversed. This tells us that someone involved in these matters actually pretended to be friendly to this woman, with other intentions. It was a significant factor. The next card is the ace of swords, reversed. This is what the murderer was attempting to do: stop this woman's testimony and legal proceedings. Next, we have the eight of cups. This indicates that the perpetrator has successfully put this behind him, and has moved on in life. His efforts will always be to keep this incident forgotton.
At the base of the staff, in the place of feelings and circumstances concerning how this affects the perpetrator's fears, we see the Queen of Wands. This is another person who knows what happened. Expect her to be an adult woman with a quick temper and a somehwat impulsive nature. In the place of environment, we have the Knight of Swords, which is a card of violence, and sometimes of violent death. Here we have not only the violent murder, but also the perpetrator, who was a male between the ages of twenty-one and forty at the time this happened. The hopes of the murderer and his accomplices are described by the Page of Swords, which is basically to put down any further attempts to investigate this crime. And the final outcome is the four of wands, reversed, which points to family as possible suspects, and also tells us that whoever did this is still living, and feeling very much at home, somewhere near the area where this woman was found.

Sabrina Aisenberg

Sabrina Aisenburg disappared in Florida in 1997. She was only five months old, and while her parents have since moved to Maryland, no clues to her whereabouts have ever been found.

The basis appears as the six of pentacles crossed by the two of swords. This gives an atmosphere of working for a wage and sharing financial resources while wondering which direction to turn in life. A truce in an ongoing conflict about how money should be spent or invested. At the foundation, we have the ten of cups, telling us that at one time, the Aisenbergs were reasonably happy, as a family. The Hanged Man also appears in the past, and he tells us that at a certain point in time, this happiness ended with the abandonment of spiritual interests in favor of selfish pursuits. Possibly, this ties in with conflicts about how money was spent. Crowning this, we have the Fool, which represents chances that were never taken, and opportunities upon which were never acted. What could all of this have possibly had to do with Sabrina? The next card is the Sun, reversed. This refers to a possible broken engagement, or a voided contract.

Looking more closely at this mix of cards, it would almost appear as if the reversed Sun was actually telling us that there as been a "cloud cover" placed over events that have somehow been swept under the rug. The ten of cups also speaks of water, as does the Hanged Man. The cards would almost appear to describe an accident involving water. Nonetheless, I do not see violence, or deliberate malice here.

The first card on the staff is the Queen of Wands. She is in the place of environment as per the emotions and fears. Her imput into the situation has been key to the movement, or lack thereof, in this case. Next, we see the World, in the place of environment as dictated by actual events, and this represents travel........on the part of the Queen of Wands, not Sabrina. In the place of hopes or fears, we have the nine of wands, which speaks of defensiveness and a very prepared state in case of an attack of some sort. The final card is the King of Wands, correlating directly to the Queen of Wands. He is an adult male connected to the situation, and all future movement in the case depends upon him.

Tirell Ocobock Murder

Tirell Ocobock was found murdered in April of 1976, in Topeka, Kansas. She had been beaten to death. The ony witness was a small brown dog she had been walking, who was taken to an animal shelter. My question was, "Who killed Tirell and why?" This reading starts with the Queen of Cups, upside down, crossed by the Emperor. In and of itself, this is an interesting combination; the reversed queen here is dishonest, manipulative, and emotionally perverse...the Emperor is a father figure. But who are these two in relation to Tirell's murder? The Page of Pentacles appears reversed as a possible cause; here we have a young person, possibly a student, whose ideas are a bit unrealistic and at odds with those around him or her. The ten of swords also appears as an event in the past, and this is not only violence, but a power posturing gesture of sorts. Someone who knew Tirell's route that morning was waiting for her, or following her, and there ensued a situation that involved strong-arming for some reason. This card is followed by the reversed ten of pentacles, the second "ten" in a row to appear reversed. The ten of pentacles reversed refers to a lost inheritance. So a man who was significantly older than Tirell and a woman felt that family property or family honor was somehow threatened by Tirell. Next, we have another card from the suit of swords: the seven of swords. There was a feeling that Tirell had something that was not hers, and by the process of violence, the perpetrators took something that was not theirs.
The motive for this crime is represented by the ten of wands, reversed. So we have another upside down "ten"! This card tells of lawsuits and duplicity, and also of legal losses. This was on the minds of the persons who committed the murder, and was part of the general picture. There was a threat, somehow, somewhere; presented to the material well-being of a family by the presence of Terell. Strength appears in the environment.....this murder was committed by persons who honestly felt that what they were doing was right. Also, the public perception of the perpetrators is one of "they would never be involved in a crime", so the investigation stalled, partly because law enforcement was looking for known violent criminals rather than sleuthing through Tirell's affairs in search of a motive. In the place of hopes and fears, the Page of Swords reversed comes up. We have an accessory after the fact who knows who murdered Tirell and why. This person was young enough to be one of Tirell's peers in 1976. The final outcome is the nine of pentacles, reversed. This speaks of a loss of friendship or a loss of a home. It would appear that the murder did not truly protect the Queen of Cups and the Emperor, after all.
It really looks as if this murder was committed by two people, a man and a woman; and it also looks as if they knew Tirell, and planned the murder in advance. It was done to protect a family's resources or reputation, and the perpetrators got away with it because no thorough investigation was performed, examining all links to Tirell, her life, and her future.

When Richard Cody Haynes disappeared from his home in Washington, he was eleven years old, so the picture on the right is age progressed. Anyone with direct knowledge of his whereabouts should contact the FBI.
We start with the four of cups, reversed, crossed by the seven of pentacles. The four of cups, when reversed, speaks of new relationships. The seven of pentacles is the card of the Farmer. It tells of hard work, leading to eventual harvest, and sometimes of barter. Was farming ever a part of Cody's life?
Beneath this is the ten of pentacles, which is a card of financial gifts and inheritances that are not necessarily earned, per se. Material property, or collateral, was, in some way, a part of this situation. A problem that faced someone involved is the six of swords, reversed. A problem was perceived, and it was also perceived that there was no solution. Cody's disappearance was an attempt, as we see in the Tower, reversed, crowning this, to overthrow something, or to completely change some sanction involving property or money. The next card is the King of Pentacles, reversed. This is a man who was involved. He is dishonest and cares nothing about Cody.
The first card on the staff is the nine of wands, which tells us that this king we saw earlier had patiently planned this, and has recourses to defend himself. In the place of environment, we see the three of pentacles, reversed. He has a trade, possibly as a cover, and is seen by others as mediocre at this trade. As a hope, or a motive, we get the ace of pentacles, which is an opportunity or a sum of money collected at once. The nine of swords comes up as the final outcome, which is a card of imprisonment.
I do not actually see a death, or a violent death, in this reading. The nine of swords is very troubling, however; because of it's position as the final outcome. The pentacles in this reading point us north, and the Tower, as a physical feature of landmark, is a dilapidated building or house. If Cody is deceased, he was held against his will somewhere for quite while before it happened, yet it somehow seems as if he may still be alive, and falsely imprisoned somewhere.

Why Is The Skylar Neese Case Stalled?

Someone recently asked me for an update to readings I have done in the past for Skylar Neese. While I do not feel that there is anything I can add to what the cards have already revealed, perhaps I can muse over the question of why this case seems to have stalled.
I have three cards for the past, and those are Death, the High Priestess, and the King of Cups. Death tells us immediately, from the beginning, that there are circumstances that are not under the control of any person, at this point. The High Priestess represents secrets. There have been some leads; simply no one has made the information public. Together, these two cards would take us northwest. The next card I have for the past is the King of Cups. He is an intelligent man, and his role in this situation is favorably disposed toward Skylar. I think he is someone who is trying to find her.
For the present, I drew the five of cups, the ten of swords, reversed; and the Hanged Man, also reversed. The five of cups says that there are clues or factors which have not yet been taken into account. The ten of swords refers to power plays, or posturing. And when the Hanged Man falls reversed, this indicates an unwillingness to sacrifice something....be it information or evidence. I really think there is a "game" of sorts occuring at this point in time between authorities, witnesses, and suspect(s). This would certainly explain the lull in movement here.
The future gives us the eight of pentacles, the Chariot, and Judgement, reversed. The eight of pentacles is the element of career skills, in this case, law enforcement skills, applied in solving the case. The Chariot is the ability to bring the testimony and the evidence together, explain and correct the conflicts between the testimony and the forensic evidence, and move forward. Judgement coming up reversed as the last card does not bode well for the reading. I think that someone with evidence is planning to hold out as long as he/she can. I also think that eventually, there will be a resolution, but it will fail the hopes of many people involved.

Madison Michelle Scharff

Madison Michelle Scharff has been missing from Emporia, Kansas since January 25.  she is sixteen years old, and the police have catagorized this as a runaway case. So I will do a basic Celtic Cross reading, asking about the situation, and the significant details that may hep to answer the the questions of why she disappeared, and where she went.
The basis we have is the five of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the Fool. Often, when the five of pentacles falls reversed, it tells of new romantic interests, and of lovers who do not have a place to meet. And this is crossed by the Fool, the card of brand new opportunities! I think we can safely guess that Maddy may have had a love interest. This is founded by the Queen of Cups, reversed. This is a woman who has been a rather bad influence of Maddy, and encouraged her to make choices that bring her into conflict with others in her life. To make matters more confusing for this poor girl, there is also the reversed Queen of Pentacles in the recent past of this situation, and this is a moody woman who is not always willing to share her time or resources, yet wants Maddy to fulfil various obligations. Inasmuch as Maddy is concerned, things are not always fair.

The two of pentacles crowns this, giving the option of communication at some future point, but the information given at Maddy's end will not be as complete as those who are looking for her would like. The seven of cups appears as an event in the near future, and this represents an influx to way too many choices or ideas that are not well thought out.

The Knight of Cups, reversed, appears in the place of causes for Maddy's disappearance, and as a possible player here. As he falls reversed, he is ultimately not a positive factor. A court card is the suit of cups is usaully a person who lies, and as cups corrospond to water, emotions, and affairs of the heart, one of the things about which this Knight may be dishonest is romantic intent. The Empress appears reversed in the place of home, and home environment, and indicates a relationship with a maternal figure, or the mother, which is strained and not terribly positive. The seven of swords in the place of hopes and fears tells us that the relationship indicated where the Empress appeared has brought on fears of being "too hard", or "more than someone can handle". As a final outcome, we get the four of cups, which is discontent. Hopefully, all parties will be able to find a compromise, and Madison Michelle Scharff can be listed as "found safe".

Revisit Of Aliayah Lunsford

Aliayah Lunsford disappeared almost a year and a half ago, in West Virginia. Why hasn't she been found? I will go ahead and do an update for the earlier readings I have done in this case.

For the past, I drew the Page of Swords, the four of cups, and the Queen of Cups, reversed. This page represents spying, and messages given with ulterior motives. The four of cups would point west, and indicate outdoor locations with trees, streams, AND standing water, such as lakes or ponds. The Queen of Cups, when reversed, is a woman who is not trustworthy. The Page of Swords is a person younger than the Queen who knows her secrets, yet has not come forward.

For the present, I drew Death, The World, reversed, and Judgement, reversed. Death usually does not foretell death per se, but major changes. This is one of those rare instances when I feel that the message is straightforward. When the World appears reversed, it is usually telling of failure and inability to move, and I think this card is telling us that this child has not moved or changed location on the "physical plane" in a long time. Judgement reversed tells us that someone out there would rather take the secret of what happened to Aliayah to the grave, rather thann come clean.

For the future, I drew the Moon, The Tower, and tpf pentacles, reversed. The Moon is deception and paranoia. At some point, information about Aliayah's disappearance could become ammunition of sorts against someone, or blackmail fodder. In the reversals described by the Tower, however; such fodder may become obsolete or ineffective......the reversed ace of pentacles shows that someone who formerly had something to lose by revealing the Queen of Cups's secret may find him or herself in a different position, without as much to lose, or without anything to lose by telling the truth. Also with the Tower comes different power hierachies. A new prosecuting attorney or a new sheriff may make a difference in the future.

My original reading for Aliayah Lunsford is here.

Amy Bradley

Amy Bradley, of Virginia, disappeared without a trace during a cruise in March of 1998. Her picture is on the left; it is requested that if anyone knows anything about her case, please call the FBI, or the nearest American Consulate. Over the years, several people have reported sightings, but nothing has ever come of it. So what happened to Amy Bradley? We start with the five of swords, a card of anger and revenge, reversed, crossed by the Queen of Pentacles. Okay....now we know that some element of this is personal. This Queen is a woman of financial creativity and independence, but there is conflict, and this has something to do with Amy's disappearnce. We go into some background and find the five of cups, denoting a recent loss relating to this queen and Amy, but it was on a personal, or friendship level, not necessarily financial. The Knight if Wands factors in here, too. He is a young man, in his twenties, with lots of energy and attraction. At one point, he took center stage, inasmuch as amy was concerned. The Star appears in the place of things that were expected; optimism and spiritual support. Also, this is a "water" reference, as in reflections of stars and lights upon water.

Next, we see the nine of cups, reversed. It refers to events on the ship itself, and it is also an imperfection that existed in the plan of the person who knows what happened to Amy. This is when Amy went from being onboard to not being onboard. It seems likely, via the five of cups and the reversed nine of cups, that she disappeared between the hours of 5AM and 9AM. Once again, the whole thing was personal, and had to do with friendship and emotions. Cups are water and feelings. The next card, in the place of fears, was the two of cups, reversed. This card is a little more telling, showing a fear of a broken partnership or friendship. Also, with the cups, we still have our water symbolism. Next we find the four of wands, which is a card of familial celebration and familial relationships.......this aspect somehow enters the scenario. This is followed by the reversed eight of swords representing the fears and sometime desires of the person who knows Amy's situation. It speaks of a desire to be free of something. The last card is the Empress, reversed. There is a pseudo-motherly influence here.....and very perverse, feminine "imprint" upon this whole situation. This is the person who can tell us why Amy disappeared.

Phoenix Coldon

Phoenix Coldon, twenty-three, disappeared in St. Louis, Missouri, in December of 2011. Disappointingly, there has not been a lot of media coverage for her, so I will do a reading.
Immediately, I see a conflict of sorts between an older man with a fatherly interest in Phoenix and a younger, less experienced, more romantic man. The reading gave me the Knight of Cups crossed by the Emperor as a start. These have both played roles in Phoenix's life; and I believe the Emperor is her father. There is a background of childish or unrealistic expectations here, meeting stern reality, shown by the six of cups founding this matter. This father also has always seen more possibilities for his daughter, and wanted better for her. This is what his perspective has always been.
The four of pentacles appears as a recently passed event. This card, reversed, represents material setbacks. It also tells us that key information was given "a day late and a dollar short". The event that this information would describe is represented by the Knight of Swords. This knight can either be a person, message, or an event, and in this position, it appears to be an event. Sadly, the Knight of Swords is all about force and destruction. But how would such elements have come into Phoenix's life? Something that was becoming important to Phoenix at the time she disappeared is the ace of wands, which is a new adventure or enterprise. She either had an opportunity, or had been offered an opportunity, that somehow threatened a young man in her surroundings. The description, so far in the reading, is of a young man who felt that her emotional and material investments should be in him, or in things that were close to that with which he is familiar.
The Page of Pentacles appears in the place of fears. This is a dark haired, dark eyed girl or boy, and often a scholarship. In this position, I think it could be both. This represents Phoenix. Next, we have the nine of swords, reversed. This is a card of imprisonment, coming up in the place of environment, and refers to the place she was hidden, and the feelings of the perpetrator. The card would point ever so slightly to the east, as it is reversed, and perhaps speak of places that are desolate, abandoned, and not often frequented. The Queen of Pentacles appears in the place of hopes, and I think this is a woman connected to Phoenix who is hoping to find her. The sad final outcome here, is Justice, reversed. Not only does this illustrate the ineffective manner in which the media has publicized this case, and the fact that Pjhoenix has not been found, it also tells us that what has happened here was not the natural way of Phoenix's path, and that she was actually meant to take advantage of the opportunities life offered her.

Daniel James O'Keefe

Daniel James O'Keefe went missing in Australia on July 15 of 2011. To the left are four pictures of how he looked at different times during his adult life. I was asked to do a reading for him, so I will see what I can find out. Asking "What happened to James and where is he?", I got this: the Hierophant crossed by the six of swords...this speaks of a person or situation involving unorthodox lifestyles and actions, and the six of swords here is merely a long journey. The message is that there was generally an aura of unorthodoxy involved in this young man's life. He was not one to bow to tradition, and occasionally too chances and risks that others would not have taken. Beneath this, we have the two of wands, which is the planning stage of his last undertaking. While he may have been alone when he disappeared, there was somehow room for at least one more person.

Behind this, we get the three of pentacles, reversed. This is a bad card to see if the question is about craftsmanship, and I am surprised to see it here, since the reading is not about how James earned a living. And....it is immediately followed by the eight of pentacles, reversed, another "tradesman" card! That card is the card of the apprentice, and when it falls reversed, it tells of someone who is unskilled or untalented at the lower levels of the chosen field. So this aspect very obviously plays a role. The next card we have is the Sun, reversed. I think that is a message of a voided contract in connection to matters professional in James's life....and perhaps some anger as a result! It can also mean a voided engagement, but the message so far has been about business, rather than romance.

The moon, reversed, falls in the place of fears. This is deception and bad timing. It is followed by the Chariot, reversed, in the place of environment. This has to do with a collapse of a project, often due to polar opposites unable to meet in the middle and work together. That card is reiterated by the two of pentacles, reversed, which tells of inability to manage two situations at once.....but sometimes this card refers to communication, such as cell phones or emails. I think authorities need to take a closer look at each and every phone number that appears in James's cell phone logs immeidately prior to his disappearance, and at the senders and recipients of all emails going to and from his email addresses.

The reading ends with the nine of cups. This is a card of material well-being. I must wonder if there were any insurance policies out on James......Look to someone who has a comfortable amount of security and resources for answers.

Maura Murray

Maura Murray disappeared in New Hamphsire, after a car accident, in February of 2004. Nine years later, no one has found her. Someone asked me to see what the Tarot has to say, so here is a reading. The ace of swords, reversed, crossed by the five of cups describes what happened to Maura. The ace reversed often speaks of too much power leading to obstacles, and in mundane, or physical reality, it could mean too much power in a car or other machine was applied, causing other problems. The five of cups simply refers to that which was left behind. Also, I think may be telling us that there was a bridge that was somehow important back in February of 2004.

The seven of wands appears in the distant past, telling us that privacy has somehow become an issue, and that certain searches will not be carried out and information and questions will not be shared or answered with proper warrents and due process of law. Also in the past, we find the Empress, who is the "mother" in the Tarot, and she represents an event that took place in relation to the disappearance, itself. Marriage and fertility are matters relating to the Empress, sometimes, also, fertile land for farms and fields.

The Fool appears as a possibility, reversed. Upright, he would be telling us that someone is ready to reopen the case and start looking in new places for Maura, but reversed, he says that no one is interested in new ideas to solve her case or find her. Another card that comes up is the King of Swords, which represents authority, law enforcement, and sometimes military affairs. Since the card is upright, I will assume he is kindly disposed toward Maura and interested in helping her come home. Perhaps a military engineer or someone involved in law enforcement actaully will find Maura's remains or clues and insist upon follow-up.

The four of wands, reversed, comes up in the place of fears and negative feelings. This card speaks of happy celebrations, such as weddings, even in reversal. Could Maura have wandered to a park, or an abandoned place where such events were once held? Once again, as in the five of cups, we have a "castle", or a big building that is prominent on the property, on this card. For the current environment, we have the six of wands, reversed, which tells of the delay of an actual search in the right place. Possibly....back to the Empress.....could she have created the delay? The eight of pentacles appears reversed in the place of fears, highlighting a worry about the ability to make money and work if a search were to take place, and we conclude with the King of Cups, reversed, who represents scandals, coverups, and lies.

The situation which led to Maura's disappearance may well have not been deliberate, but for some reason, a deliberate coverup involving a woman of childbearing years and a man old enough to run a business has taken place. These two individuals have stopped anyone from finding this young woman.

Delaware Murder Mystery

In a 1993 story from Delaware, a murder victim, with no identification, was discovered along I 95 in Delaware is still unidentified twenty years later. He was Asian or Native American, 5' 10", around 140 lbs., and his slacks were a size 28 waist. He had long black hair.......shoulder length, and perfect teeth, but was an heavy smoker. The tip of his ring finger on his right hand had been surgically amputated, and the nail of his pinky finger on his left hand was slightly longer than the rest of his nails. Above is an artist's sculpture of how he may have looked. I will ask the Tarot what happened to him.

We start with the six of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the Knight of Pentacles. It would appear that our Knight had a unpaid debt of some sort. The pictures above are almost perfect Knight of Pentacles pictures......dark hair, brown eyes. This person would also have been the type to move slowly toward a goal, rather than quickly. As a cause, or foundation to the matter at hand, we have the Wheel of Fortune, reversed. This could either be a turn of bad luck, out of the Knight's control, or on a more mundane and literal level, a gambling issue. Perhaps both. Behind him was a woman, the Queen of Pentacles reversed, who could not be trusted. Somehow, she played a role in his murder. Her physical description would be similar to his in that she has(d) dark hair and dark eyes. She was not very kindly disposed toward him, and it was his mistake to trust her. The Fool describes what should have happened here, but didn't. There was a choice our Knight could have made that would have saved his life somehow, either by getting him out of harms way, or by removing his killers. But he allowed matters to continue. The High Priestess follows this card, telling us that there is still at least one person out there who knows what happened, but is not talking. The High Priestess also reiterates the feminine influence.

The four of pentacles, a card of hoarding, comes up in the place of fears and worries. This is what the Knight was doing before he got killed......holding onto something material that someone felt he owed him or her. In the place of environment, we have Temperance, reversed. This points to a toxic mixture of personal and business affairs which were not compatible. In the place of his hopes, we have the six of cups, which speaks of childhood memories. Note that this is the second six to appear in the reading; a possible correlation between monetary unpaid loans and investments, and children and childhood memories. Perhaps the two were connected in his life. The last card is the ten of pentacles, which is a loss of family honor or inheritance. I think this Knight's family, should we ever find out who they are, knows exactly what happened.

McKayla Dawn McCormick.

McKayla Dawn McCormick , fifteen, has been missing from her home in Ahwatukee, Arizona, since January 9. Her case has, thus far, been investigated as a runaway case, and she is listed as "endangered missing". I will see what the Tarot has to say about her case. This reading begins with the ace of wands, crossed by the Star. McKayla may very well have left home on her own accord. The ace of wands is a new adventure of some sort, sometimes this card tells of a pregnancy.....but it is too soon in the reading to jump to conclusions. The Star is creativity and brilliance, but in this case, not yet materialized. Found this, we have the six of pentacles, which is a gift or an offer. McKayla was offered "something", which she clearly regarded as an opportunity that she could not get while staying where she was. Unfortunately, this card is followed by the Moon, reversed, which I do not like to see in a reading such as this. Reversed and in the recent past, the Moon speaks of deception and bad luck. I will keep my fingers crossed for McKayla. The best that may come out of this situation is the ten of cups, which means family, celebrations, and homecomings, so I will take that card as an encouragement. The next card, something that will happen in the near future, is Judgement. I do believe McKayla will be found. I also think the situation will be put right.

The King of Wands comes up in the place of fears. As he falls upright, I will assume that he has McKayla's best interests at heart. He is an older, married, family oriented man who is currently seeking to find McKayla. Possibly her father? He is followed by the nine of cups, reversed, which speaks of overkill in matters mundane......too much food....too much shelter.....too much protection, ect. It also signifies minor imperfections, but no family is perfect. The card that falls in the place of hopes and fears is the eight of pentacles, reversed. This is the card of the professional and of the apprentice, describing skill in a task. I interpret this card's appearance here to mean that there is a fear among those close to McKayla that someone officially investigating her disappearance is a bit of a dilettante, and unable to do the job of finding her. The last card in this reading is the Chariot, reversed, telling us that in order to find McKayla, law enforcement will have to balence two different parties of witnesses without blaming or pointing fingers at any of them, until all is said and done. Many of the cards (cups and water symbolism) point west, and a couple point north. Somehow, this time, not only should those physical directions be considered, but also the fact that this child thought she had found a way to follow her heart with her feet still safely on the ground, only to find herself in grave danger.

Anyone with information about McKayla Mccormick should contact Phoenix Arizona police, or call 1-800-THE-LOST.

A Dream Interpreted

Sometimes a dream actually has an interpretation that has a bearing on the life of the dreamer, and sometimes a dream is just one's subconscious having a field day. Here is a dream I had many years ago, when I first moved away from my childhood home. It was a warning about the lifestyle I had begun to foster.

In the dream, I was renting a basement apartment before graduating from college. I came home very late one night, and sat down to work on some homework before going to sleep. What seemed odd was that I entered the house through the front door upstairs, rather then the basement door. After I sat down, my father, who, in real life, had died a few years earlier, came downstairs to the basement from the attic of the house. We chatted, and before he left, he said, "I want to ask you something." He proceeded to the basement door, which was not the door I had used while entering the house, opened it and closed it, and then locked the deadbolt lock on it, and said, "How come you never lock this door?" Then I woke up, feeling a bit shaken.

I knew that dream was more than simply the action of my subconscious, but did not understand the entire symbolism at first. The man who taught me how to read Tarot thought the dream was interesting, and explained it this way: the house was the reality of life, in a Judeo-Christian sort of way. The basement and main floor, and the sidewalk leading up to the house, represented the realm of the living, hence my entrance through the door on the main floor, not the basement door. The attic represented "heaven", or the afterlife, from where my father had come, since he was deceased. The world outside of the basement door was a bit comparable to "hell", if you will. Since I belonged in the house, as part of the world's current living beings, I entered through the front door. When my father opened the basement door and closed it, he locked it. In the dream, I apparently had fostered an habit of leaving it unlocked. What he was saying to me when he asked me why I never locked that door was "why are you allowing the influences of hell into your life?"

Explained thus, the dream made perfect sense to me. I had, indeed, allowed some influences into my life that did not belong there. The advice in the dream may have been one of the best pieces of advice my father has ever given to me, with the exception, of course, of the dream in which he asked me why I wouldn't just admit that I was in love with my best friend! That's another story, though. And my best friend is now my husband......Dad was right, once again.

Garnell Monroe Moore


Missing Since: August 2002 from Baltimore, Maryland
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date of Birth: May 18, 1995
Age: 7 years old

Garnell Monroe Moore was last seen in 2002, but as he often lived with different relatives, everyone thought he was with someone else until 2005, when he was finally reported missing. Here is a reading about him.

This reading starts with the Chariot crossed by the Empress. The chariot generally represents the balencing of opposite forces to move productively of the physical plane in one direction. That is why cars and other modes of transportation are often indicated by this card. Here it is crossed by the Empress, which is the "mother" card of the tarot. so we have efficient movement either by, to, or away from the natural mother. This is founded by the three of cups, which is often and ending to something that should have been happy, and sometimes a card of overindulgence.....often in alcohol or drugs. An event in the past is the Page of Wands, who is an active and verbal child; possibly Garnell. The realm of possibilities is represented by the seven of cups, which is telling us that too many choices have been offered here. Since the only choices that have been offered are possibilities as to what happened to Garnell, it can be safely surmised that someone has deliberately offered too many choices, in an attempt to deceive and to keep Garnell from being found. Who would do this? The next card says it was the Queen of Wands, reversed. This woman is jealous, loves to fight and argue, and scares people with her forcefulness. No one wants to stand up to her.

We find the Knight of Pentacles in the place of fears. This is a man who is quiet, but who will not let the memory of Garnell go. He is someone who is an adult, yet under the age forty-five, who really wants to know what happened to Garnell. For environment, we get the five of swords, reversed. There is an element of "vengence" or "revenge" at play, the the reversed Queen of Wands would be well advised to understand this. Not everyone is buying her story. The nine of swords, reversed, comes up in the place of hopes and fears, and the message there is simple: someone is worried about going to prison for this. One of the meanings of this card, especially reversed, is imprisonment. The final card is the King of Swords, reversed, who is not pleased with the reversed Queen of Wands, whom we met earlier. As soon as enough evidence is gathered, the Queen can expect the judical system to deal harshly with her. Sadly, I think the reversed three of cups tells us what happened to Garnell. I think he accidently ingested too much of a medicine, such as a cough syrup, or died from some sort of neglect.

What Was Behind The Shooting Of Saad Al-Hilli?

Saad Al-Hilli and his wife were both found shot to death in the Alps in 2012, and someone sent me a link to the information, asking what the Tarot would say about it. Mr. and Mrs. Al-Hilli were survived by two young daughters; this was so sad for them.

The reading gives us the Hermit, reversed, crossed by the two of pentacles. This is an element of immaturity, or denial of reality, intertwined with attempts to make new starts, probably career changes. Beneath this, we see the Page of Wands, which is a message containing good news. Saad was not expecting to be shot. As a factor in Saad's past, the ten of pentacles comes up reversed, telling us that a financial loss, possibly of an inheritance, grant, or loan was at least part of the reason this crime took place. The message is that the money was not money that Saad earned, or earned by himself.
This is followed by the Page of Wands, which is some good news that Saad had gotton before he was killed. He did not expect to get murdered. After this, we get the ten of pentacles, reveresed, which tells of financial loss, particularly of an inheritiance or grant. The money was somehow considered to not have been completely earned by Saad. A problem in the investigation is indicated by the five of wads, reversed, which points to testimony that does not line up with other findings, and with witnesses changing their stories. The three of cups reversed has to do, not only with endings, but overindulgence on the physical plane, and with greed. Could this have contributed to the motive?
The three of swords appears in the place of fears, and it is a card of betrayal and disorder. The message here is that Saad had somehow compromised someone, or had been compromised. This oftenn goes hand in hand with conflicts about ownership and legal testimony. In the place of environment, we have the ace of cups, reversed, which describes a situation of family problems! As a hope, ( of the perpetrator(s)) we get the five of cups, reversed-somehow, this killer did not think that the murders were a big deal-as if he had a "right" to do it! And the reading ends with the two of cups, reversed, which is untrue love, and "love" partnerships that are violent.

Lisa Stebic

Lisa Stebic has been missing since April 30 of 2007. That's a long time to be gone without a trace, so today I will see what the Tarot has to say. My question is: what happened to Lisa, and where is she? The reading begins with the two of swords, reversed, crossed by the Devil. The apparent message here is one of energies scattered in the wrong directions, crossed by passion, very likely lustful passion. Beneath this, we have the ten of cups, reversed. When this card falls upright, it tells of happy homes and loving families, but reversed, the message is the opposite. So unhappiness in the home is part of the equation. Next, we have the Fool, which is opportunity, but opportunity for what? The six of wands, reversed, follows this; and in this position, it usually means a bit of officially delivered bad news. So the opportunity was to deliver or receive some unwanted news or an unwanted notice? The next card is the five of pentacles. This sometimes tells of lovers not having a place to meet......but more often, it tells of material troubles and loss. The card falls reversed, so it's meaning is more that financial matters suddenly became less important than personal matters immediately before Lisa Stebic disappeared. Back to the Devil; he represents matter over spirit, or passion taking precedence over love and common sense, and I think his presence in this reads augers a fit of rage on the part of someone.

In the place of fears, we have the Magician. This is fear, on the part of someone, that evidence that can be used to prosecute a crime has been left somewhere. Not only do I refer to DNA evidence, but I also refer to the ability to put together a scenario, talk to any and all witnesses, and present the whole story in court and win a case. There is a strong possiblity of this, and it has the perpetrator worried. Following this, in the place of environment, we have the World, reversed. Somehow, Lisa is not in a place where she can be readily found, and the case may proceed without her. This refers to the general stall, or very slow movement of the case. The next card is strength, in the place of hopes, which tells us that investigators have not given up. The last card is the Star, reversed, which is a pessimistic card when coming up reversed. Any suspect here will be stubborn. There is evidence, though.

To venture a guess, the Devil's appearance makes me wonder if Lisa was shot, and the five of pentacles makes me wonder if it happened, or of she was taken, five miles away from home. The card would point north if upright, but reversed, it could either point the opposite direction; or the same direction, but in a more roundabout way and with obstacles. I wish the reading could have told of more positives things.
