We begin with the ten of cups, reversed, crossed by the Queen of Pentacles, which
is also read reversed, here. This is a message of unhappiness at home, involving an
adult female. Lack of trust and neglected responsibilities are factors with this woman.
Beneath this we have the six of cups, which is the card of childhood memories. This
gives us a picture of a problem that actually began at the childhood home. Next, and
also preceeding the situation, we have the seven of swords, reversed. This is where
someone has taken matters into his or her own hands, and made a decision and acted
on it, for good or for ill.
The next card, explaining why Aundria is missing, is Temperance, reversed, suggesting
that Aundria and one or more family members were somehow not a good combination.
There is also a suggestion of murky, shallow water connected here, when this card falls
reversed. After this, we get the Sun, reversed. which, in this case, speaks of broken
engagements and vioded contracts. Something to keep in mind is that this is also an
The Hierophant, reversed, appears in the place of fears. This was a fear of new ideas
and of an inability to control others, In a nutshell, there was fear on the part of someone
in Aundria's life of not being able to control Aundria. Following this, in the place of
environment, we have the seven of cups, reversed. Someone who knew how to impose
his or her will on others made sure Aundria disappeared. There is also a reiteration of the
suggestion of shallow water on this card. Next, we have the ten of wands, reversed. There
was some sort of treachery in the situation, and there was a fear of civil litigation. Aundria
somehow created a legal risk to the person who made her disappear. The last card is the
seven of pentacles. This is the card of waiting for the harvest; the fruit has yet to ripen on
the tree. So we should look for someone who had something material to gain from this
child's disappearance. This is also the third "seven" that has appeared in the reading. Look
for "seven" to be a significant number in some way: I think it will be a geographic factor,
such as an address or the number of miles from where Aundria was last seen, or the number
of hours it takes to drive to that place. As the seven of pentacles is a card of waiting for the
harvest, the material gain was not immediate, but happened later.
The reversed seven of swords suggests that Aundria died of lack of oxygen, as if she had been
strangled. Sometimes, the Sun in reversal suggests cloudiness; perhaps the word "cloud" in
prominent in the name of the place she can be found, or the concept of clouded sunshine.
I always hope I am wrong, or that my interpretation of the cards is incorrect whenever I get
an answer like this from the Tarot. I hope Aundria is found soon.
