Sarabeth Rose Hammond

Sarabeth Rose Hammond, seventeen years old, was last seen in Roanoke, Virginia on December 28. Her last electronic contact with anyone was a text message she sent to her mother on that date. No one has seen or heard from her since. Perhaps a reading will help.

The first two cards are the five of wands crossed by the eight of swords. The gives undertones of mental games and untruths, even though the investigation has only been going on for a couple of days, crossed by a reality of being "stuck" or trapped. From this, it looks very much as if law enforcement has already spoken with someone connected to Sarabeth's disappearance, whether they know it or not.

Beneath this foundation, we have the seven of cups. This speaks to scattered forces and not enough solid information. It is followed by the Queen of Cups, reversed. This queen, when she falls reversed, tells of a woman who is not always honest and tends to be selfish. I do not think this is Sarabeth; I think this woman is an adult. Strength, reversed, appears above, warning us that at some point in this situation, we may see power abused. There is a connection between this and the scattered forces we saw in the seven of cups. The next card is encouraging: the ten of cups. The ten of cups represents completion, but usually in a happy way. It describes family and home in balance. It tells us that a happy ending to this may yet be possible.

In the place of fears, we have the four of pentacles. Someone is hiding evidence and holding back information from those who are trying to find Sarabeth. There is a sense that this person cannot "afford" to come forward with what he or she knows. Next, in the place of environment, we have Justice. This is a clear suggestion that the case may end up in court, very soon. I am encouraged to see Justice upside right; upside down would indicate a denial of justice. The five of pentacles shows up in the place of hopes or fears. Here, we have a suggestion of a love gone astray, or some type of spiritual or literal impoverishment. At this point, it is either a fear, upon which someone acted; or a fear held by someone connected to Sarabeth. The last card is the Fool, reversed, which is not encouraging. This goes to faulty choices and the gradual grinding of gears before an endeavor shuts down. Somehow, these concepts are in control, right now. They are given power by the person(s) who withholds information.

Water has been represented quite a few times in this reading, beginning with the eight of swords and its reference to entrapment in shallow water, to the seven of cups and its reference to dreams and fantasy, moving along to the ten of cups, showing us a home. The five of wands points us south, but not too far south.  Also, the Queen of Cups is a watery card, too. While the reading does not scream "death", the eight of swords is not a card of freedom. This is the card that worries me. The suggested directions are south and west, the suggested element is water. An adult male and an adult female have information that can help.

Anyone who has any knowledge about this case should call the Roanoke County Police in Virginia at 540-562-3265. Her car is a white, 2016 Hyundai with New York plates; TCW 125.

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.

What Happened To Aundria Bowman?

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
"outside" card.

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.

Angela Marie Hammond

Angela Marie Hammond has been missing since 1991, when she was snatched by an unknown
male from a Missouri, phone booth.

The reading starts with the Tower, crossed by the seven of swords, which is read reversed. This gives us a situation unforeseen conflict aided by opportunity and an able hand. Angela did not see the attack coming, and the perpetrator had no problem grabbing her. This is founded by the ace of cups, which symbolizes romantic new beginnings, happiness, hope, and love. This somehow symbolizes the last few moments of Angela's life, before she met her attacker. Next, we have the eight of pentacles, reversed. This tells us a little about the perpetrator; he was not very good at the skills required for his employment. I am not sure how this plays into Angela's situation, but it comes up in the background.

As the best possible outcome, we have the King of Swords. This king is often law enforcement,
and the message here is that police would still like to solve Angela's missing persons case. This is
followed by the Devil, reversed. Upside right, the Devil is often a card of bondage, so when I
see it reversed here in a missing person's reading, it appears that the case will open up again and
be solved, eventually, and no longer belong exclusively to the perpetrator. Sometimes, this card
warns of indecision: hopefully no opportunity to find evidence goes without proper investigation.
There is a distinct warning about this. Another meaning for this card is sexual perversion. This is
something that will be unearthed in testimony, when this case is solved.

In the place of fears, we have the Emperor, reversed. The Emperor is the "father" card of the deck,
and when we see him reversed, he is often telling us about a male, fatherly figure who is ineffective
and indecisive. There is a man, who is significantly older than Angela, and he needs to be questioned.
This would play into the reversed Devil's indecisiveness. It appears that someone,somewhere,
connected to this case has information that he or she hopes will be considered. Next, in the place of environment, we have the ten of wands. This is a good card to see for closing a case; it means that
a problem is soon to be solved. Next, we have the Sun, in the place of hopes. This is clear;it is the
hope that Angela will be found, and that all will come to light. The last card is the Hierophant. This
card is the card of conformity and and social sanctions. It's placement here tells us that the
investigation can and will unearth the evidence: good, old fashioned police work.

To find Angela, we have a lot of fiery "south" cards. While the Devil often points us north, he is
reversed in this reading. He is also rather fiery, as is the Sun. The Sun suggests that Angela is outside,
and the ten of wands points us south. I think there may be a field that should be searched....a place
where people sometimes hunt deer. I am not sure how far away this place is from where she
disappeared, but it seems that the drive should be a few hours, but not a few days. Perhaps as
long as one day.

I really wish I had better news from the Tarot about this.
