Legal Proceedings And The Sierra Lamar Case

I have been asked by several posters to follow up with Sierra Lamar's case, the person charged therein, and for update on locating her. I decided to ask what type of testimony Antolin Garcia would give, and how they could find her.

The first three cards, representing the past, give us the High Priestess reversed, the nine of wands, reversed, and the six of cups. I would almost be inclined to think that Antolin Garcia has a new attorney, and that she is a woman, except that the High Priestess is reversed. I think a female relative of Antolin's has convinced him not to cooperate. Either an  older sister, or his mom. The next card, the nine of wands, is the impatience everyone else is beginning to feel at not finding Sierra. The six of cups is a place where children play. The card looks to the past, and it is in the position of the past. I think more clues, or maybe even Sierra, may be in a park that is no longer used for play or children.

The next three cards are the Page of Swords, reversed, the Knight of Pentacles reversed, and the Knight of Swords. These are the present. The Page of Swords is someone who knows what happened but has not yet been arrested. This person is deliberately not cooperating, and has encouraged Antolin not to cooperate. The reversed Knight of Pentacles is Antolin. He isn't going to budge from his position. The Knight of Swords is the prosecuter. He is going to do whatever he can to solve this. But we are deadlocked at the moment.

The future brings us the Page of Cups, reversed, the Wheel of Fortune, and the ten of cups, reversed. From this, I would expect the actions of someone who does not know what he/she is doing to be blessed with some very good luck somewhere down the road. The Wheel of Fortune stands for chance, but as it falls upright, chance is in our favor. The ten of cups tells us of a delayed conclusion, and also points westward, (in a stagnated sort of way) and to water. The reference to family-happiness-but-not-any-more is reiterated here, too.....check places where children once played but do not anymore and places where celebrations were once held but are not anymore. Water still plays a key role.

Livia and Alessia Schepp

On January 30 of 2011, the father of Livia and Alessia Schepp, of Switzerland,  reported his twin daughters, pictured left, missing; instead of returning them to their mother. French, Italian, and Swiss police have all been involved in the search for the six year old twins. Sadly, their father died in an apparent suicide in Italy by jumping in front of a train; yet, the girls have not been found. Someone asked me to read for them.

The reading gives us the nine of wands as a beginning card. This is impatience, pure and simple. We have someone who was unwilling to to wait for something. It is crossed by the ace of cups, which is often pregnancy, children, birth, or happy family matters involving children. It looks as if the father was unwilling to endure separation from his daughters after his separation from their mother. Underneath this, giving us some foundation for the situation, we have the four of wands. This is a card of whimsical celebrations and fun. Apparently, this was the setting immediately before these girls disappeared. Into the background, we have the Emperor, which is the one card in the deck that describes the role of "father" best, and as it comes up here, I think we can assume that the father did know what happened to Livia and Alessia. The best news we are going to get about this is the ten of wands. This is a card that tells of carrying a burden, but all the way to it's end. So there is a chance that, one day, we may find out exactly where Livia and Alessia are. Something that was a serious problem for the father before his suicide was bad credit and unpaid debt, this we know because the six of pentacles appears reversed. Not all of his financial problems have been resolved, either, despite the fact that he has died. There is a suggestion that he somehow perceived this as a reason to make rash, unbalenced decisions about his children and their fates, as well. So there was a father who didn't like the custody arrangements for his children and was frustrated about money, financial resources, legal fees, and supporting his children.

On his mind at the time the girls went missing were all things connected to the three of swords, which tells of lovers quarreling and breaking up, divorce, child custody disputes, and unresolved disagreements in general. It was his feeling that he could not cope or communicate. The three of wands is the description of environment here, and it looked to everyone, especially Livia and Alessia, like they were just traveling and going from one place to another. This is interesting: sometimes, this card refers to news from across water or sending something or traveling across water, and it is a "three".....I think it refers to the three of them, father and two daughters. It also refers to possible help; the whole journey looked innocent enough, and someone inadvertantly helped him "disappear" his daughters somehow. The dark side of his nature is described by the King of Cups, reversed. This is dishonesty, lies, violence, and sometimes drunkenness. Cups are also associated with water, and as the king falls reversed, I think the girls never made it out of the water. Water had something very big to do with their fates. Sadly, I do not see them reappearing in the future. The last card is the Knight of Wands, reversed. In this case, he simply represents an event featuring discord, fights, upsets, and bad news. Also, the father's suicide. I feel very sad for the mom.

Update To Mickey Shunick Reading

There has been a very sad update to this case. A man named Brandon Scott Lavergne has been arrested for agravated kidnapping and first degree murder of Mickey Shunick. There is no word about having found Mickey, though. I do not believe she has been located as of this update. There should be more news about this tommorrow.

Baby Gabriel

  Sometime between December 26 and December 30 of 2009, a baby boy named Gabriel Johnson disappeared in Phoenix, Arizona. He was last seen with his mother. His mother is suspected in the disappearance, but police still have no clues. Someone wanted the Tarot to answer some questions about this baby and what happened to him, so I will see what a reading tells me. It starts with the Queen of Wands, reversed. She is a rather jealous, ill-tempered adult female, directly involved in Gabriel's disappearance. She is crossed by the Knight of pentacles. This is a young, adult male who is not as quick tempered, and is also involved in the baby's disappearance, but is not as violent or as ill-willed as the queen, and has yet to decide what he is going to do. Beneath these two individuals, we have the three of wands, reversed. This card tells us that something that began as a promising adventure went bad, somehow. It is immediately followed by the two of wands, reversed, relating back to the reversed Queen of Wands and to the pursuit that went bad. This card indicates joint efforts...not always lasting partnerships, but things or efforts that involve two people. As it is reversed, I would say these two people are now at odds.

Crowning this, we have the three of pentacles, which is the card of the apprentice. This is an opportunity for advancement or employment that the queen or the knight wanted but did not get. The next card, representing what has happened or will happen, is Death. While Death may not be telling us about a physical death, (although I do think Gabriel will not be found alive) he is telling us that the lifestyle of everyone involved in this situation is about to change. A lot. The five of pentacles appears in the place of fears. This is a fear of Gabriel being found. In the place of environment, we have Justice. As Justice falls upright, I think someone investigating this may have honed in on a clue, as unlikely as it seems. The ace of wands falls in the place of hopes, which is the hope of finding Gabriel. The Page of Cups ends the reading. This page often brings news of a birth, and as it follows the ace of wands, it is entirely possible that another pregnancy is part of this picture.

There is a lot of fire symbolism here, and a lot of "enterprise" and "craftsman" symbolism, too. As if a baby was part of a business. Sadly, I do not see Gabriel turning up alive, but I do see justice. The Queen of Wands is the responsible party, the Knight of Pentacles was close to the situation but was not directly responsible.

I wish some of these cases would have happier endings, and I hope that Gabriel is found alive and safe, even though the "feel" I got was that he died in a moment of rage and confusion at the hands of the angry Queen of Wands.

Madeleine McCann

I got a request to do a reading for Madeleine McCann, the four year old girl who disappeared in 2007 in Portugal, while vacationing with her parents. I had intended to do a reading for her, anyway, so today is a good day for me to sit down and ask the cards. Below, there is a photo of her, along with an age progressed picture, since she would be nine years old if she were found today.

This reading begins with the six of pentacles crossed by Death. I can see two distinct but possibly coexistant messages here. First, pentacles relate to the element of Earth, and we have the six of pentacles, and as it is crossed by Death, this could mean that Madeleine is no longer with us, or "six feet under" somewhere. On an interpersonal and social level, the six of pentacles could mean that someone wanted something material from Madeleine's parents, and decided to threaten and use Madeleine in order to manipulate them.

As a base, we have the eight of cups reversed, which shows good times, but really nothing more. This fits in with the vacation the McCann's were taking when Madeleine disappeared. A person who is part of this event, but in the past, is the King of Swords, reversed. Court cards in the suit of swords are often law enforcement or lawyers or judges, and sometimes events involving legal matters. As he is reversed, he is not very well meaning toward the McCanns, and possibly not toward Madeleine, either. Because of the next two cards, I feel that he is an actual person who was involved in this. The very best thing the McCanns could have done on the day this happened was to go home looks as if someone threatened them or stalked them, and they did not take it seriously enough. This is indicated by the eight of wands as a possible outcome this could have had, but didn't. The next card, something that DID happen, is the five of swords, which is revenge.

In the place of secrets and introspection, we have the High Priestess, and in this position, she represents insight, but she is insight with which no one truly wishes to contend. Somehow, the truth is perceivable, but no one really wants to see it or think about it. In the place of environment, the nine of pentacles appears. This is a card of financial independence, and it is also the way the McCanns are perceived. There is an air of "they have money, let them solve their own problems" about this. The three of wands reversed follows this, representing an atmosphere where no one wanted to work with the McCanns to find Madeleine. The final card here is the ace of pentacles.

This all appears to revert to the upside down King of Swords. While I feel he is law enforcement, I also feel he knows what happened, and decided, early on, not to help. This king answers to corruption, and wanted to keep charging the McCanns more and more money in order to solve the case. Even then, it is doubtful that Madeleine would have been returned, and it would have been discovered that he did not do his job. No one expected this case to make world headlines, but it did. It really looks like the McCanns were targeted by an angry, jealous man who felt that they "owed him something" for some reason, and it also looks as if the police deliberately did not help or even truly investigate until it was too late. It sounds unusual, but that is what the cards tell me.

As for Madeleine's fate, I pulled two more cards. Those were Justice, and the six of wands, reversed. Sadly, I do not think any news we get of Madeleine will be that she is still with us, but somehow, some way, she will get justice. The Justice card was upright.

Joshua Davis

Some asked me to do a reading about a toddler named Joshua Davis, who disappeared from his home in Texas in February of 2011. No trace, no clues, and it has been almost a year and a half. I asked the Tarot what happened to Joshua and where he is.
The cards gave me the eight of swords, reversed, crossed by the Emperor as a basis. The eight of swords speaks of being trapped, often by matters relating to thought and word, rather than actual, physical imprisonment. This card is reversed here, and it seems to be telling us that someone was trapped, but is not trapped anymore. The Emperor crosses this. The Emperor is the "father" card in the deck, and he may very well represent Joshua's actual father. Sometimes the eight of swords represents being stuck or trapped in water, as a physical state, and this leads me to believe that perhaps Joshua's father rescued him from some water at some point immediately before he disappeared.

As a bit of background for this, the ace of cups, reversed, comes up. This card, when reversed, tells of deception, by way of making it look as if one is capable of great things when one is not, and it also tells of projects ruined shortly after they have been started. We also have the Magician in the background, and he is someone who actually does know what he is doing. The very best that could have been expected for Joshua is the Page of Cups, reversed, (this is the third negative reference to water, so far, in this reading) and this also augers miscarriages of everything from pregnancies to projects. Also sad, unfavorable messages and news. This is followed by Strength, which, in this case, means diplomacy and tact. Someone, quite likely the Magician, has advised the Emperor to remain diplomatic, yet not be terribly informative. This is not looking very good for young Joshua, yet it also does not look like deliberate violence. It looks like an accident involving water. Inasmuch as the Emporer is concerned, please remember that the Tarot cannot give me a name of a specific individual, so it is not possible for me to literally point fingers at anyone.

The five of pentacles is in the place of worries, and this relates directly to a fear that Joshua will, one day, be found. The place of environment give us the nine of cups, which, while being another cups/water card, is also a card of home and hearth. I do not think this little boy was ever very far from his home. And, because the nature of the nine of cups is all about home and home's comforts, it appears that family was on hand in the home at the time Joshua disappeared. In the place of hopes and fears, we have the nine of pentacles, reversed. There is some worry about finances involved in this picture, but it is possible that this is just a worry which has not materialized. As a final outcome, we have the King of Swords. His position here is interesting, because he does not match the rest of the reading, except that he ties in a bit with the reversed eight of swords. This king is often law enforcement or a lawyer or judge. As he is upside right, I really think he is interested in seeking justice for Joshua, and I also think he is concerned with whatever incident is represented by the eight of swords. More power to him.

It looks to me as if an accident involving water is responsible for this child's disappearance, and it also looks as if someone in the judicial system is still interested in getting to the truth.

What Will It Take To Find Sierra Lamar

Sierra Lamar has been missing over three months. While there has been an arrest, and law enforcement seems certain that a case against the defendant, Antolin Torres, can proceed, and Sierra's twitter and facebook accounts have both been hacked, there has still been no indication of where Sierra actually was hidden. There have been several requests over the past few weeks for an updated reading for Sierra's case, and I have held off, feeling that the questions are still very much the same as when this started, and that there wasn't really anything new that divination could tell us, but in the presence of hackers who apparently know, have, or have guessed Sierra's passwords to her accounts, and who have given law enforcement false information, (I need a big frowny-face for this) I think there's a new reason to ask questions. this one more shot, my question is, are the police on the right track with suspect and location for Sierra?

The first three cards tell us about things that are in the past. These cards are the three of cups, the eight of pentacles, and the five of pentacles, reversed. The three of cups speaks of firndships and small celebrations and get-togethers.....but it can also tell us of an ending. Cups also relate to the element of water. The eight of pentacles is the card of the apprentice, and refers to workplaces. The five of pentacles reversed represents novel, and often illicit companionship. Looking at this, it would seem that the suspect may have first noticed Sierra at his job, and that he took an unhealthy interest in her. It looks, I repeat, LOOKS, as if the police are right on the money in their suspicions, with the exception of their statement that whoever took Sierra was not aquainted with her. So far, from this reading, we are being told that Sierra actually did at least know who the perpetrator is, even if she did not know him well.

The next three cards describe the present. They are the Knight of Wands, the six of wands, reversed, and the Tower, reversed. The Knight here is a man who is looking for Sierra. He is between the ages of twenty and forty-five. He may actually solve the case, somehow. A problem for him is the six of wands, reversed, which is delay and fear of an enemy who will "win". This card also relates to news, and because it is reversed, I think it is fair to say that the news being investigated is bad. That brings us to another problem for the Knight of Wands......he is a person who does not enjoy interpreting or delivering bad news, and he would love to have some good news, or at least some definate answers, to deliver. We also have the Tower, which is a card of destruction and ruin. A whole way of life can be changed when we see this card. Reversed, it means the same, but to a lesser degree, and with an added element of imprisonment. I cannot forget that the suspect is in jail right now, refusing to testify, so it looks, I repeat, LOOKS, as if the police are on the right track.

For the future, we get these three cards: the seven of cups, reversed; the Page of Swords, and the Devil, reversed. It is good to see the seven of cups reversed here. Upright, this card means that there are too many ideas and leads to investigate, and that the facts would be hard to nail down, but reversed, it means that investigators are finally narrowing down the clues into a framework that can be followed. Also, there's that "cups" and "water" symbolism again. The Page of Sword is often a troublemaker or a "spy", but here, I think this is someone who testifies, for whatever reason, and actually assists in finding Sierra. Once again, it really looks like more than one person knows where Sierra is. The Devil, reversed, is not only the male energy behind this crime, but a vacillation between resolution and indecision. It looks like law enforcement knows who the Page of Swords is, and is waiting for him to talk, and it also looks like water, may, indeed, be part of the mystery of location for Sierra.

The playful atmosphere described by the three of cups, and the methodical searching described by the reversed seven of cups makes me feel that the answer to whether or not law enforcement is on the right track concerning is searches is "yes".  I hope they succeed in finding her soon.

The McStay Family

February 4, 2010 was the last time Joseph McStay answered his cell phone, and no one has heard from him, his wife, Summer, or either of their two little boys since. When a family member went to their home in Bonsall, California, to check on them, he found no one home, with the exceptions of hungry pets. Someone asked me to do a reading about the McStay family, and here it is.

We start with the two of wands. This card speaks to opportunities and partnerships, usually within a business context. In this case, it would be a new idea, that had not yet gotton off the ground. It is crossed by the Moon. The Moon can sometimes mean dreams, or psychic ability, and it can also mean deception. Because of the nature of the question, and of the subject of the reading, I am going to go with the latter. So we have a great new business idea that will provide new opportunity with deception hanging in the air. As a base, we have the ace of pentacles, reversed. Upright, this is a great card to appear beside new business ventures, but reversed, it can indicate greed and corruption; and perhaps, finances falling through. In the McStay's disappearance, it may be telling us of both. Following this, the King of Cups appears, reversed. There are almost always lies associated with this king when he comes into a reading reversed, so we can assume that this is a corrupt and dishonest male in his early forties or older. As a possible connection to this situation, the Queen of Swords comes up, also reversed. She is a mean woman, also with a dishonest character. Not kindly disposed to the situation. It does not look as though there will be any changes or new information in the near future, as the six of swords comes up reversed in the place of things that will happen. Upside right, this is a card of travel, but reversed, it indicates that the McStays are somehow "stuck" wherever they are.

The six of wands appears in the place of fears, and as this is the card of heraldry and formal messages, along with victory, it gives an idea that someone connected to this is afraid of sending any messages home or to the general public. In the place of environment, we have the Knight of Wands, reversed. He is usually a jealous, rather violent, threatening male, between the ages of twenty-five and forty. He is somewhere in the general vicinity of the McStays, and knows where they are. Wands also point south, as they symbolize fire, which is south. So I would look for the McStays somewhere south of where they disappeared. The number of a knight is twelve, so it is possible that they are "twelve" to the south, or "six" over the border......lets not forget the reversed six of swords that came up earlier; perhaps they cannot move themselves "six" to the east, but they would like to! In the place of hopes and fears, we have the seven of wands, reversed, which is anxiety and indecision, so somehow, these two elements are playing a huge role. As a final outcome, the Chariot appears. This is a card of balence; it occasionally fortells travel, but in order for travel to take place, balence on some level must be achieved. There are two horses drawing a chariot on this card, and one is black, the other white. The message is that they both want to go different directions, and the charioteer must get them to work together and move the same direction.

Prior to doing this reading, I had thought the McStays might not be with us any longer, and while I may have been correct, this reading really looks like a very bad business deal with some shady twists and turns, rather than death. Hopefully, they will be found, and their family can know what has happened.

One More Age Progression Of Kyron Horman

The National Center For Missing And Exploited Children has released another excellent age progressed picture of Kyron Horman. This one pictures him with no glasses. It is always my hope and prayer that I will turn on the news and see the story telling the world that Kyron has been found. He has been missing since June 4 of 2010, when he was seven years old; now he is nine. Until the day Kyron is found, it is important to keep his image where everyone can see it, and hopefully, recognize him.

Christopher Enoch Abeyta

The other day, someone asked me to do a reading about Christopher Enoch Abeyta, who disappeared from his crib in Colorado in July of 1986, when he was seven months old. His family has never given up the search for him, and The National Center For Missing And Exploited Children also has issed age progressed photos of him over the years. While searches for missing children have evloved over the years, there have still been virtually no clues found in this case, and this little boy was never found. Below, there is an age progressed picture of what he may look like, as an adult.
We start with the King of Swords, who is an older man with dark hair and light eyes. He is crossed by the ace of wands. The ace of wands is an opportunity which requires a lot of energy; many times, this card betokens a birth. It crosses the King of Swords, so I think it also eludes him. Below this, we have the Knight of Cups, as an event leading up to the disappearance of this child. Sometimes, this Knight will appear as a dishonest person, but in this case, I think the Knight represents the presence of fraud. Cups are water, and water is emotions, and this particular type of fraud is one that plays upon human emotions. Anytime I see a card in the suit of cups reversed, I also expect to see dishonesty. In the past, we have the Page of Pentacles, reversed. This is someone who is constantly in conflict with others, and also someone who seeks a lifestyle for which he or she is not entitled. There are also unlawful ways of making money somehow involved with the card, and the person represented. Someone else involved, who has not been detected, is the Queen of Wands. As she falls upright, she would be favorably disposed toward Christopher. The next card is the four of wands, which is a celebration of sorts. This card almost always fortells happiness, and sometimes marriage! It is a surprise to see it here!

On the staff, in the place of fears, we have the five of wands, reversed, which is games and deception taken to unimaginable levels. Someone had gained the trust of someone responsible for Christopher, only to betray. In the place of physical environment, we have the heirophant, reversed, which tells us that Christopher ended up somewhere or with someone unconventional and untraditional. A hope on the part of a key player here, is the seven of pentacles, reversed. This is someone who does not want the hard work of Christopher's family to ever pay off, resulting in the finding of Christopher. The final outcome is the Empress, which is the card of the mother. This is somehow in the hands of a "mother" type of person. This is the person who knows where to find Christopher. There is nothing to indicate that Christopher is no longer with us........also no cards of travel or relocation. I think he may still be in Colorado, or a neighboring state.

Skelton Brothers

Not too long ago, I got a request to do a reading for the three Skelton brother, Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner, who were not returned to their mother in Morenci, Michigan, after a visit with their father. Their father is in jail, and he refuses to discuss his sons' whereabouts with anyone. They disappeared over Thanksgiving of 2010. My question to the cards was "what happened to the Skelton Brothers, and where are they?"

The first two cards are the World, crossed by Death. This is rather ominous. They began what was supposed to be an exciting trip, and, in one of the rare incidents of actual death chronicles by the Tarot, apparantly died. I truly hope I have interpreted this incorrectly, but I don't think I have. For some background, we have been given the four of pentacles, reversed, which tells us that material losses, due to mistakes and extravagances on the part of the person experiencing the losses, played a role in this sad situation. The five of swords, reversed, tells us about deceit and a violent revenge of some sort. The best we can expect to find is the Knight of Pentacles, reversed. I think this speaks of an event, rather than a person in this reading, and I think we are being told that the boys will be found, very eventually, near or in a field that is not used anymore.....upright, this card is associated with plowed fields, since it came reversed, I am interpreting it as overgrown and unused fields. The Emporer is the next card, and as this is the "father" card, and the boys were with their father when they disappeared, I think the answers lie with the father.

In the mind of the person who did this, it was a way to express anger and keep a quarrel going. The three of swords tells us this. This was done to punish a former lover, the three boys were only collateral. We have the six of cups, which speaks of children, child friendships, and the past, telling us that these three boys were the most convenient way for the perpetrator to hurt the lover he so wanted to punish. The four of cups, reversed, in the place of hopes or fears, speaks of new relationships, and as it is a hope or fear, but not a reality, I think the perpetrator had a real problem with an ex moving on, to a new relationship. The reading ends with the Empress, or the "mother" card. So we have a picture of a father who wanted a relationship with a mother, and did not get what he wanted, and three boys used as pawns. How very sad.

Note: The six of cups appeared in the place of environment, and it may also have been telling us a little about location. Cups are water, which points us west, and the message may be "six to the west" of the father's home.

Petition To State Farm Insurance On Behalf Of Ayla Reynolds

As many have already heard, Justin Dipietro, the father of Ayla Reynolds, bought an insurance policy against Ayla from a friend who works for State Farm Insurance. Within Two weeks of that day, Ayla disappeared. She has not been seen since Decenber 16, 2011. A very good petition has been put together, to request that State Farm do a very thorough investigation before they pay Justin Dipietro anything at all for his missing daughter. Hopefully, everyone who reads this will look at the petition and sign it. Here is the link:

Age Progressed Picture Of Kyron Horman

Here is a professionally enhanced picture of how Kyron Horman, who disappeared from his school in Portland, Oregon, exactly two years ago, might look today. He may or may not have glasses, and his hair might be longer.

How And When Will Ayla Reynolds Get Justice?

I promised to do a reading on this question of justice for Ayla Reynolds recently. As for what happened to Ayla, I do not think I can add productively to the other readings I have done. But I do think I can add this question, and hopefully interpret the message of the cards. Keep in mind that sometimes, time is a difficult item to measure in any type of divination. And often, Justice takes time, moving at it's own pace.

I changed the question a bit on this one. I was having problems getting a clear answer with the question about "Justice" appears that there are six individuals who know what happened to Ayla at this point in time, not just three. Rather than chase down the role and consequence each perp should face in a perfect justice system, I reshuffled, asking if this case would ever be resolved. Here is what I got: the two of swords, crossed by the three of cups. This message is clear; the two of swords represents stalemates, and that describes the Ayla Reynolds case quite well. The three of cups is resolution here, and it has been delayed. It is at odds with the two of swords. At the base of this, we have the Page of Swords, reversed. This individual has appeared in other readings I have done for Ayla, so I am not surprised to see him again. He is an accomplice, and he has assisted the person who is responsible for Ayla's disappearance. While he has done nothing but aid the cause of injustice, his achilles heel is lack of commitment. When he gets tired, or when the going gets tough, he will break, and not be a reliable ally for the perp anymore. Moving into the past, we have the King of Cups, reversed. This is a male with adult responsibilities and a bad character. Lies are also associated with this king when he falls reversed. Also look for scandals and double dealing. As a desired outcome, we have the Empress, which is the "mother" card. This simply tells us that the best resolution would be for the mother to get her answers. The three of wands offers some practical help with the person responsible and the accessories. This could be a new volunteer effort or an experienced search and rescue team who wants to help Ayla's mother.

The Hanged Man tells us what the status of Ayla's case is right now; it is in a state of suspense. Efforts to catch the responsible party have not lead to Ayla, and other sacrifices will have to be made in order to resolve this case. The Tower describes the atmosphere surrounding this case right now; somehow, resolution will involve the overthrow of old methods of solving crime, and someone's position that has somehow been used to cover this crime will be exposed. The seven of cups in the place of desire tells us that the perpetrator has "helped" this investigation scatter it's energies and resources in too many different directions. The reading ends with the five of cups, which tells us of loss and regret, but with something returned. It will not be a happy resolution, though. So sad.

There are four "water" cards, (cups) in this reading, and three more cards that contain water references. (two of swords, three of wands, and the Hanged Man) It seems that Ayla is probably still either in Waterville, or very close to it. While the Hanged Man could be trying to pull Ayla out of a stream as the current pushes her past him, I think the "currents" referenced here are human egos of those close to Ayla's paternal family. It is possible that the Hanged Man is attempting to pull more clues from the currents of conversation and "talk" in order to pull out the truth. I do not claim to know how it will happen, but the Tower fortells the truth coming out in way that brings down an institution, demanding reform.

Michaela "Mickey" Shunick

On May 19, a twenty-two year old woman named Michaela, or "Mickey" Shunick was riding her bicycle home from a friend's house in the very early morning in Lafeyette, La., after celebrating her birthday. That was when she was last seen. I was hoping to hear she was found, but, sadly; only her bicycle was found, in the Atchafalaya River. I will do a reading, and see what the cards have to say.

The question I asked is "What happened to Mickey Shunick?" The cards began with the four of pentacles, reversed, crossed by temperance. This gives me a picture of someone who is suffering from material setbacks, and Temperance is the card that tell us why this person would be suffering from material setbacks: drug or alcohol abuse. So we should look for someone who abuses drugs or alcohol, and may be on probation for same. Beneath this, we see the five of pentacles. This not only discusses what the perpetrator's situation was/is, it gives us a possible location of a church or a place where people who are lonely or desperate gather. It also speaks to a possibility of romance gone wrong, which leads to the next card, telling us of a female influence in this: the High Priestess, reversed. Water is connected to the High Priestess as a location, and as a person in the past, I think she has a lot more to do with whoever made Mickey disappear than with Mickey. So far, this looks like a case of a rejected male, nursing his bruised and not-too-sober ego by taking out his sexual/romantic/relationship frustrations on an innocent victim. He is represented by the Knight of Pentacles, reversed. This is a careless type of guy, in his mid twenties or early thirties, (in this person's case, he could be as old as mid forties, yet still as emotionally immature as a younger man) who does not get along well with people and therefore has never made anything of himself. He is followed by the King of Swords, and as this King falls upright, I think it is safe to assume that he is part of law enforcement, and already has some good leads on finding Mickey. He is also looking across at the reversed High Priestess, so he may have reason to believe the water may hold the best clues.

In the place of secrets, we have the eight of wands, reversed. This is jealousy. A domestic dispute that did not have anything to do with Mickey had something to do with her disappearance. In the place of environment, Death, reversed, comes up. Mickey has, sadly, been in the same place ever since May 19. Since Death is reversed, I think there will be some delays in finding Mickey. As a location, this card would point north, and indicate open fields, and, since the horse is white, perhaps the vehicle involved in this was white. That is only a guess on my part, though. The King of Pentacles, reversed, appears as yet another male, either older or more accomplished than the first one, (both males here may have dark complexions and dark hair) who has a reason to believe that the Knight of Pentacles may have been involved in this. He has not come forward and spoken to law enforcement yet, but the perpetrator is worried that he might. A stalemate, the two of swords, has this case locked up and at a standstill right now. The element relating to swords is air, and as air rules oral and written words, testimony, and information, the message of this reading is that we need testimony from the King of Pentacles in order to completely solve this case.  The King of Swords is very good at his job, however; and I think he is on the right track in his water searches to find Mickey Shunick.

Sierra Lamar And The Arrest On May 22

Now there has been an arrest in the case of missing Sierra Lamar. The sheriff in Santa Clara county, California thinks that this person is definately connected to Sierra's disappearance, and has had him under surveillance for at least several weeks. She was hoping that his comings and goings would lead to Sierra's whereabouts, or at least yield clues, but we still have not found Sierra. There have been some requests for another reading about this, and I have asked the cards if this arrest has brought us any closer to solving this crime.

This reading starts with the four of cups crossed by the Moon. The four of cups gives us an air of ingratitude somewhere in this picture, and while the Moon can often mean psychism and vision, it can also mean deceit. In this reading, it appears to mean the latter. The truth simply isn't good enough for someone, or will not work out the way he/she would wish, so deception is employed, instead. We have this based by the Knight of Swords. This is a quick, sudden event that may have included violence and definately included geographic movement. The five of pentacles, reversed, fades into the background, taking with it an opportunity to get at the truth. Something that may still happen is the eight of cups, reversed. Upright, this card woud tell us about someone who had gotton his wish, but then changed his mind, Reversed, it means getting one's wish, but at the expense of wisdom and spirituality. It seems to be telling us of someone who may get what he/she wants, but is not yet mature enough for it. Something that will happen is the four of wands, reversed. Perhaps this arrest will help solve the case, but glory and happiness of the four of wands upright, (it is a card of celebrations) will be tarnished, as it falls reversed.

The Page of Cups falls in the place of fears. This can mean news involving a young person or a child, which, of course, everyone wants here. As it falls in the place of fears and negative emotions, I think the truth about what happened to Sierra will still be hard to elicit. The next card is very important in this reading: in the place of environment, as in what is going on NOW, we have the ten of wands, reversed. This tells of duplicity and treachery. It also does not bode well for legal matters. Upright this card speaks of working toward a goal and barely making it, or somehow abusing power and resources, but reversed, it is lies and separation. It is quite possible that in the wake of this arrest, more evidence is being corrupted or destroyed. The nine of pentacles appears in the place of hopes, which is independence and financial well being. Somehow, that is on the mind of the perpetrator. The reading concludes with the World, reversed. This is not a good card for the outcome, as it speaks to a slow resolution in this case, rather than a quick one.

It does not appear that we will get the answers we need from the defendant in the arrest, but I could not help but notice the presence of two fours in this reading. In Taoism, four is the number of family, and wood is it's element. I still think that Sierra did not travel too far away from her family's home, and I also think it is time to start questioning everyone who knows Antonlin Garcia Torres, the defendant who is now charged. Water is still an element somehow, because the Moon appeared, and part of the deception is making it appear that Sierra is "nowhere in the world". Ten of wands: that card points south, but here, it falls reversed. It could be telling us that Sierra backtracked, or that she really didn't go anywhere at all. I wish I had more positive things to say about this. And I hope she is found today.

Updated Tarot Question For Sierra Lamar

Some asked me to do another update for Sierra Lamar, who went missing in March. While I do not think much has changed since the initial reading and update, I decided to try one more reading, just honing in on Sierra's location. So far, it does not appear that any of the so-called clues or testimony has been helpful; in fact, it looks as if law enforcement may have been deliberately guided to the wrong track from the beginning.

We begin with Judgement reversed crossed by the Star. This means that someone is deliberately attempting to cheat the judicial system. Judgement also sometimes means fear of death. The Star means hope and courage, and as it crosses the problem now experienced by those searching for Sierra, I think we can safely say that someone is deliberately keeping any valuable information about Sierra away from those who could bring her home. The Wheel of Fortune is in the background here, and this is the opportunity that someone had to make Sierra disappear in the first place. Someone had wanted to remove Sierra for some time, and had finally found a way to step up his/her game and make it happen. The seven of cups fades into the past here, and this is a card of illusions. Because we have seen Judgement reversed already, the message is that the illusions were deliberately placed. The eight of swords reversed is something that could happen. This means that this charade can come to an end soon and that Sierra can be found. A possible location described by this card is drainage ponds and runoff. I hate to think of septic systems, but that, too. This is followed by the three of cups, which is the end of something, and also an excess of food or alcoholic beverages. Upright, this card would speak of reasons to celebrate. Reversed, it is telling us, in this case, that something that used to be anticpated is now cooling down, so to speak. As a location, it tells of a place where celebrations may have been held, but not in a long time. Mild disrepair.

The five of pentacles describes the mindset of the person(s) who knows where Sierra can be found. Money is on this person's mind, and budgeting money has become somewhat of a problem. Help is not as available as it would be if this person were not hiding something, and this person cannot afford to be open and honest because he/she is hiding a crime. The Knight of Pentacles, reversed, comes up in the environment. This is a lazy, dependant, good-for-nothing type of male and he may have dark hair and brown eyes. He is not one of Sierra's agemates; he is an adult. The Knight of Swords, reversed, comes up in the place of hopes or fears, and I think this describes the event surrounding Sierra's disappearance and the feelings of the Knight of Pentacles. Reversed, this is a card of violence. The last card is the three of pentacles, reversed. This takes us back to the five of pentacles, in the Knight's worries. It is a card of mediocrity in the workplace, and may tell us of someone who is either not working when he should be, or is having problems at work. Somehow, this is tied to Sierra's disappearance and current location enough to show up in a reading.

Back to Judgement crossed by the Star. This perpetrator has had some help in hiding Sierra, and the Star is the hope these people have of blocking any new beginnings. I am hoping they do not get away with it.

Who Has Kyron Blocked And Hidden?

I guess it seems like an obvious question. Kyron Horman, who went missing on June 4, 2010, was the victim of a crime, so of course, the person who committed the crime will make the best attempt he or she can to escape detection. But it seems as if a lot of planning and skill went into this crime, more than what is usually found with a random "stranger abduction". This has also inspired a few people to wonder if some sort of esoteric means has been used to hide Kyron. It is a question that has actually been posed to me quite a few times over the past year and a half. (!!!........Kyron has been missing waaaaaay too long!)

I did a reading to deal with this question. It begins with the Hierophant, reversed, crossed by the three of swords. When the Hierophant falls reversed, he often represents things that occur outside of the norm, and counterculture lifestyles. Elements of this are somehow present in the current situation; as if someone simply refuses to live life the same way everyone else does. This is blanketed by the three of swords, which is a card of strife and infighting. Somehow, these two dynamics have helped to keep Kyron hidden better then any other type of effort. A failure on someone's part to follow directions and an effort to keep sparks of discord going have worked marvelously so far for the perpetrator.

This is founded by the eight of cups. This card usually appears when someone has gotton what he wanted and changed his mind, but since the question deals with ways that Kyron has been blocked from being found, I think this card is telling us that investigators were deliberately sent in the wrong direction in the past and, as a result, found nothing. In the past, we have the Page of Swords, reversed, and this person is a double dealer and a liar who knows what happened to Kyron and has deliberately used communication, either electronic or in person, to pervert justice. The very best thing that can happen is the eight of swords, reversed, which is a release from being trapped. This is also the second eight that has come up; the message here, as it relates to the first eight that reminded us that Kyron has not been found, is that we should not give up. If the best that can happen is for Kyron to be freed, we should certainly keep looking for him. The next card we get is Justice, reversed. This relates directly to the Page of Swords, and the Page is not about to tell the truth or do anything for Kyron.

In the place of feelings and fears, the Emperor has shown up. He is a fatherly figure, and as he is upside right, I am going to assume he has Kyron's best interests at heart and in mind. The environment of this matter gives us the three of pentacles, reversed. Usaully, this card speaks of mediocrity in the workplace, but here, I think it is telling us that someone has capitalized from searchers and investigators failing to ask the right questions. The Emperor is hoping for a day when the tables are turned, as related to us by the Tower, and the lies that keep Kyron trapped come tumbling down. The last card is the Hermit, who is still vested in helping the Emperor. His advice is to keep looking. Never give up. The Hermit is a little like Diogenes, looking for an honest man. He, or she, as the case may be, will not allow the Emperor to stop looking for Kyron until Kyron has been found.

Nothing in this reading tells me of an esoteric block, but I think natural fear and paranoia has generated one. The presence of a reversed Page of Swords does tell me that deliberate attempts have been made by someone other than the perpetrator to keep Kyron well hidden. This person is not schooled in matters occult, however; and is relying on the ability to sow discord and keep key people from trusting each other, rather than any other "powers".

Note: Sometimes fear, and people who are good at scaring others, can almost feel like a psychic "block". I think there is an element of this at work in Kyron's case.

Caleigh Harrison

Caleigh Harrison disappeared from Rockport Beach in Massachusetts on Friday, April 19. Her mother said she turned her back for just a minute, and never saw her daughter again. The search has been called off, and no one has found this little girl. In the past several days, Caleigh's four year old sister has spoken of a man she didn't know, and stating that he took Caleigh, but she did not mention this immediately after the incident. So we will see what the cards have to say.

We start with the seven of swords, reversed. Upright, this is a card of theft, and taking what does not belong to one, but reversed, it is quite the opposite. This crossed by Temperance. Temperance is associated with water, and we know that Caleigh disappeared at the beach. Temperance also signifies good combinations and compatibility, and as it crosses the message of good council and keeping what belongs to one, I find myself wondering if this child was truly kidnapped. The seven of wands, reversed, comes up in the background. Upright, this card would tell us that someone was either guarding a sercret or a place, and playing strategically with information, but reversed, it is telling us that the proper searches have taken place, and that the appropriate warrents have been served. The Knight of pentacles reversed is attempting to fade into the background. The search has stalled, with no results. He is also a lazy, rather dishonest male presence.

Strength appears as the best that can come from this, and I think this card is urging everyone involved not to give up just yet. This card is followed by the King of Swords. This king is often a police officer, lawyer, or judge. I am going to guess that he is law enforcement, since I see him looking at the reversed Knight of Pentacles for clues. In the place of secrets, the Knight of Swords appears. He is also law enforement, but with a more aggresive manner that the King. A serious problem that needs to be overcome is the seven of cups, (this is the third seven in this reading) and this is illusions and possible deception. Too many different ideas have been presented, and possibilities have not been efficiently narrowed down. Another problem is the Queen of Cups, reversed. This is a dishonest, twisted person who does not have Caleigh's best interest at heart. Her relationship to Caleigh is not clear, however. The last card is the eight of wands, reversed. Finding this little girl is going be be very hard, step by step, routine detective work, There will be no "miracles" per se. Two people, a male and a female, know where Caleigh is, and have not told the truth.

The seven of cups is also a bit of a description of where Caleigh is likely to be found. She has not traveled too far from the beach from which she disappeared, perhaps "seven" to the west. I strongly suspect that she is disguised, somehow. Perhaps some pictures of how she would look dressed as a boy, or with a hat covering her hair, could be circulated.

Whereabouts For Sierra Lamar

There have been a couple of requests for an update concerning missing Sierra Lamar. I think the other readings that I have done give us a basic outline of what has happened, so I will attempt an update, focusing on where and how she might be found.

This reading gives me the Lovers crossed by the Page of Swords as a beginning. There are two people with direct knowledge of Sierra'a whereabouts. The Page of Swords lends an element of spying and mistrust to the relationship between these two individuals; they are each a little afraid of getting thrown under the bus, so to speak, by the other. As a cause for this, the Knight of Swords, reversed, tells us that Sierra did, indeed, incur violence. Reversed, this Knight is often and violent and dangerous person. Occasionally, this card will even refer to fatal violence. As an influence trying to recede into the past, we get the Empress, reversed. Upright, this is the card of the Mother; reversed, she is maternal instinct gone awry. Already, this does not look promising.

The very best thing that can be done by either of these either of these accomplices is the five of cups, reversed. This is a suggestion that Sierra be returned. Given back to whomever may care for her. The King of Pentacles is on the horizen as a forthcoming event, and I think he is the one who will finally solve this matter. In the place of secrets, we have the Hanged Man, reversed. This is a sad statement for the state of this affair, since it tells us that those who should be making the sacrifices required for Sierra are not. The ace of wands appears in the place of environs. Fire is the element that refers to wands in the Tarot, perhaps fire was involved in the coverup of evidence. Also, it could mean that Sierra is "one" to the south, or being that the card is "one", perhaps she has not traveled off of the property of her home at all. Another search of the property where she lives, and the neighboring property or house on each side,("one" away) and in front and in back, could be helpful and yield clues. The eight of cups reversed comes up in the place of hopes or fears; this is the hope of someone that he/she/they will get away with a crime.

The last card is the Magician, reversed. This is an abuse of power. From this reading, I would be inclined to search the favored "hangouts", or "stops along the daily route" of the older (older than Sierra) male closest to Sierra with any type of authority over her.

Mercedes Celis

Another missing child! Six year old Mercedes Celis was last seen at her home in Tuscon, Arizonz, at 11:00 PM Friday night, and had disappeared by 8:00 AM Saturday morning. Local police, the FBI, and Federal Marshalls are involved in the search. No clues or sign of this little girl have been found. Here is the comment of the Tarot:

The reading starts with the ten of cups, reversed, showing the disruption of the rhythem of Mercedes's family. The is crossed by the two of pentacles. The two of pentacles seems to be making appearences in the readings of many missing childrens' cases lately. It tells of either putting on a brave face for the general public, or of putting on a brave face and putting a different spin on a matter, or not disclosing all the facts. It is a little unsettling to see this in the basis of the matter in a reading about a missing child. As an event in the past leading up to Mercedes's disappearance, we have the Knight of Cups, reversed. As an event, this knight would simply tell us that Mercedes is not far away, and didn't really travel too far, but I think he may also be an actual person in this scenario. He would be a young adult man connected to Mercedes's family or extended family. The event that is easing it's way into the past is the ace of cups, reversed, which tells of sad news related familial matters, children, love, and emotions. I think the family had become aware of something quite sad before this little girl went missing. Someone who is watching matters unfold does, indeed, know what happened to Mercedes, and the best thing that person can do is represented by the eight of swords, reversed. Swords relate to air, which represents information via spoken or written words, and the eight of swords is a  card of bondage. Reversed, it fortells freedom from bondage, and if the person who knows something about this speaks now, the results will not be nearly as bad as they will be if the truth comes out as the results of investigation. Someone who wants to find Mercedes and will do anything to help her is the King of Cups. He falls upright, and cares very much about what happens to Mercedes.

The Queen of Cups, reversed, falls in the place of secrets. This woman is keeping something from the investigation. The ten of pentacles, reversed, is in the place of environment, and it looks as if the fear of financial loss is somehow driving this matter. In the place of hopes, we have the seven of cups, which, in this particular reading, is clearly delusion. Mercedes's family will never be the same after this incident. The reading ends with the five of wands, reversed. The five of wands is a card of trickery and deception, but here it is reversed, showing us that someone actually knows what happened to this little girl, and still has a chance to come forward with information.

Sadly, I do not see much from Mercedes, herself, in the future. That disturbs me, but I will come back to this if she is not found. There are three people I see here as active parts, two men and a woman. But one of the men, the King of Cups, is more of a bystander or a "victim after the fact" than a culpable accomplice.

Update: a couple of points about this reading that I did not emphasize, but which bear emphasis: there has been some speculation that Isabel Mercedes's older brothers may have been involved. While the reading indicated that a younger male WAS involved, the male is still an ADULT, not a child. I do not think either of Isabel's brothers showed up in the reading. Everyone involved in this was an adult. Also, this is not going to make me the most popular tarot reader of the year, but that ten of cups at the beginning of the reading screams of matters pertaining to family.

Tarot On Etan Kalil Patz

On May 25, 1979, six year old Etan Kalil Patz disappeared while walking to the bus stop to go to school in Manhattan, New York. After reluctantly allowing Etan to walk to the bus stop by himself, his mother, Julie Patz, was unaware that Etan never made it to school until that afternoon, when he was not on the bus to come home. This resulted in one of the biggest missing child searches of all time, and Etan was the first child whose picture graced a milk carton. Etan was declared dead in 2001, and despite the presence of a possible suspect, was never found. The case became active again about two years ago, and new searches are in progress now.

We start with the two of wands, reversed, crossed by the six of wands. The two of wands is a card that tells of partners and joint efforts, so I am going to assume that there are two accomplices here, rather than just one. It is crossed by the six of wands, and as the six of wands is affirmative news, I think the message is clear: someone, during all these years, has deliberately kept the secret of what happened to this boy, and still does not want the location known. As a cause for the situation, we have Death, and I think this is one of the rare cases wherein the Tarot speaks literally of physical death. Usually, the Death card in a reading refers to a life-changing and often beneficial change, but this time, I think the face value of the card is the message. The next card, describing circumstances past, is the Emporer, reversed. This is a man, in an authority, or "fatherly" relationship or position to Etan, and as he is reversed, he is not kindly disposed toward Etan. He is also the perpetrator. The very best that can come of this today is the ten of cups. Usually, this card refers to a happy family situation, but here it tells us that Etan's family would like to simply know what happened, and have closure. Ten is the number of completion.The Sun follows this as something that will happen, so I think the Patz's will eventually get their answers.

The accomplice, or accomplice after the fact, may be a woman, but the reading is not very clear about the person's gender. The concerns that were running through the perpetrator's mind are represented by the two of cups, which indicates a relationship or liason that the perpetrator wanted to keep hidden. This could either be a business or a romantic relationship. Etan and his innocence is represented by the six of cups; could he have seen something that someone else did not want publicly known? Six.....that was his age when he went missing. It is how the world  sees a six year old. The card representing the perp(s) is followed by the card representing Etan and what Etan saw or thought.

A fear the perpetrator has concerning this is balence of different aspects of his life. Somehow, there has always been a possibility that his secret was not safe, and he still worries. This is the two of pentacles, yet another "two". It also shows worries about communications between two people, and the duty of "putting on airs", or "pretending": lying and covering up something. The final outcome is the seven of pentacles. This does not tell me if Etan will be found where investigators are currently digging, although digging is, indeed, an activity related to this card. It does tell me that their hard work is very likely to pay off. The seven of pentacles is a card of successful harvest. 

An interesting pattern in this reading is the presence of two "two's" followed by two "six's". Two and six are somehow key numbers here.

Help With Ayla's Whereabouts

I have had a lot of requests in the past week for a reading that might detail the whereabouts of Ayla Reynolds a bit more specifically.  Most of the readings I have done so far have answered "who" and "how", rather than "where". In a case that eventually turns up a living victim, the reason for this is no great mystery, as someone who is alive will obviously not consistantly remain in the same spot. Another reason why "where" can often be a difficult question for divination to tackle is explained by T. Raphael Simons in his book, Feng Shui Step By Step, very clearly: it is often difficult for someone who is not familiar with the surroundings of a person, object, or situation to know exactly what to ask, hone in on, or recognize in the answer to a divinatory question. He refers to this as one of the seven obstacles to divination, and more can be learned about this in Chapter 25 of Feng Shui Step By Step.  That said, I will attempt the question, and hopefully my limited knowledge of the terrian in Maine (too cold!) will not prove too much of an obstacle. Ayla has been missing way too long.

This begins with the World, reversed. Wherever Ayla is, she is stationary, and not moving from place to place. The World is crossed by the Page of Swords, which tells me that an accomplice is watching this spot. I do not think it is the perpetrator; I think it is someone who is trying to help the perpetrator ellude justice. This person has also done much to steer the investigation in the wrong direction. As an issue founding this situation, we have the five of cups, reversed. This is a return of a loved on or a friend, and I think this card refers to Ayla's move into her father's home. Reiterating this is the ace of wands, in the recent past, telling us of what SHOULD have been a joyful opportunity for Ayla's paternal family to get to know Ayla. The two of swords reversed is the best that was ever to come from this situation,, and this tells of an ended stalemate of sorts with events happeneing in the wrong sequences or matters simply getting out of hand. The next card is the two of wands, reversed, which tells us that there are at least two individuals who know what happened to Ayla, and as the card falls reversed, they are unwilling to cooperate with the goal of bringing Ayla home.

In the place of fears....fears of the accomplice described by the Page of Wands and of the others involved, we have the Jusctice card. I think that speaks for itself! The general environment for Ayla, herself, is the seven of wands, which is somewhere that is somewhat guarded and off limits to the public and investigators without a search warrent. A person who knows the situation is somehow stalling the investigation by disallowing the searches that would locate Ayla. Possibly private property or home, shed, or lawn that either has not been searched or has not been searched very well.

The next card, in the place of hopes, is the ace of cups. The perpetrator is not only hoping for a new beginning after the investigation is over, but as water is the element of cups, I think this person wants authorities to keep looking for Ayla in water! The final outcome is the Fool, who wants us to know that while the secret of Ayla's whereabouts is owned by the person(s) who hid Ayla, the outcome is owned by chance, and it is very likely by some unavoidable chance that Ayla is found.

One more thought about the two of wands reversed: this can also be a card of one person forcefully dominating another, and it gives us a clue about what happened to Ayla. The person she was with before she went missing is someone who is known for bullying and should never have contact with children again.

Updated Reading For Baby Kate Phillips

A reader requested an update for the reading I did for Kate Phillips, a baby who was last seen on June 29 of last year with Sean Phillips, her father. Ariel Courtland, Kate's mother, and law enforcement in Michigan, have been searching ever since. The father is charged in Kate's disappearance, and as of yet, she has not been found. Sean's court date is later this month. The question I asked was "where is Kate?"

This begins with the King of Pentacles, crossed by Death. A major change is unavoidable, no matter what the King of Pentacles does. Along with change, Death also points north. This is founded by Strength, reversed. This was the not-so-bright move made by Kate's father when he took her away in the first place. The Wheel of Fortune reversed is the situation from a past perspective, which simply illustrates the mother's powerlessness once she allowed her daughter's father to have control. The best we can expect from him is the Hanged Man, reversed. This is someone who is unteachable and unwilling to make any sacrifices. I do not expect him to reveal his daughter's location in court, either, unless someone can make him feel very threatened by consequences. The next card is the three of cups, which may give us some good news.......perhaps Kate will be found. Cups are water, and water's direction is west, so a possibility, since thirteen is the number of the Death card, could be "thirteen to the north" and "three to the west". A small body of water is also a possibility. The word "white" as in "white line" or "white rose" keep coming up.

The three of pentacles is in the place of fears. This is the card of the craftsman. It is followed by the nine of pentacles, which is a card of independence, and sometimes, of home and gardens. Is there someone who gardens or landscapes for a living in this picture? Also, I think this is telling us that someone who lived with Sean at the time Kate disappeared knows Kate's whereabouts. The card of hopes is the King of Swords, reversed. This is the advice Sean has received from his attorney....not in the interest of finding Kate. He's been told not to offer any information. And the last card is the Empress, reversed. It could be Kate's mother, but I think it is another card describing Sean's surroundings before his arrest; in other words, the Empress is someone who lived with Sean prior to this, and that she knows where the baby is, too.

This does not look encouraging. Hopefully, there will be an update in this case from Michigan soon.

Ava Enlow Found!

Yes! It's really true! Ava Enlow, of this reading, was found today! Her dad was arrested in Mexico, and she is en route back to Arizona, to her mom. The dad's mother was also on Nancy Grace tonight, stating that she knew her son was in Mexico, after stating a month ago, on the same show, that she did NOT know where her son was, and begging the general public for a lawyer for him! She should really just shut up. Since this is now a criminal case, not just a family law court case, he will be appointed a public defender if he cannot afford representation. There are certainly enough innocent people out there who need legal assistance and can't afford it; why should her son, who knowingly committed a terrible crime get a break? She's got a lot of nerve!

I am so happy to post that Ava is no longer missing.

Devon Davis

Just on Tuesday, two year old Devon Davis disappeared from his parents' new home in Liberty County,  Texas. He is now the subject of an Amber Alert. I find the Amber Alert curious, as I have not been able to find any description of a vehicle that may have been involved, so I did a reading. I should add, earlier, I pulled just one card, asking for some sort of direction about this matter, and it was the Empress, reversed. The Empress is the ultimate mother/wife, and reversed, she represents a woman who either has not, or cannot, master those ideals. I already do not like the direction.

For the basis, or the cross, the Queen of Swords is crossed by the King of Swords. An intelligent woman and an intelligent man together provided a home for Devon. They are both somewhat better educated that others in the area where Devon went missing, and both may have had careers before moving to Texas. This is founded by the three of swords, which represents thinking over feeling, often at the expense of things that one or more parties in a disagreement hold dear. I am going to conclude, for now, that one or both of them had misgivings about moving to Texas from Virginia, and that they had clashed over it. The next card, describing that which is moving into the past, is the eight of wands. This is a great card for infatuation, and for finding things that are fun, but it tells us of things that simply happen too fast, and of too much excitement. There was too much "good stress", along with bad, for someone involved. The five of pentacles, reversed, appears in the place of things that can happen, but have not happened yet. This can mean the return of a loved one or a friend, and I would like to hope it means the return of Devon. It can also tell us of lovers not having a place to meet. I hope that was not an issue with the move to Texas. The card of things that will happen is the ace of wands, reversed. This tells us that there will be setbacks in finding little Devon.

The card that falls in the place of Devon's feelings and the feelings of those closest to him is the five of cups, reversed. Upright, it means regret and loss, but reversed, it means hope, and once again, the return of a friend or loved one. I will take that as a good sign. I hope this is a hope fulfilled by Devon coming home unharmed. The next card, in the place of surroundings and family, is the Emporer, reversed. Like the Empress, he is the perfect parent or spouse, but reversed, he is the negative aspect; the person who has the responsibility but not the ability. Somehow, he figures into this, just like his counterpart, the reversed Empress does. The ten of wands is in the place of hopes, (in this case, I would day the Emporer's) and this means that he wants to conclude this whole matter, solved or not. In the final outcome, we have a new character, the Queen of Cups. She is intuitive, caring, and as she appears upright, kindly disposed toward Devon and very serious about finding him.

More thoughts on this reading: the reversed ace of wands in the place of things that will could refer to a key time of day, such as 1:00 in the afternoon, (wands are fire, and the Sun is also connected to fire symbolism) and it could also mean that the move from Virginia was a false start. There are also more adults with active parts in this matter than any of the reports I have read about this. I also do not see a vehicle playing a major role here. The reference to Swords in the beginning of the reading could also be telling us to look East, as that is Air's, and Swords's direction. But I think it is telling us to look at specific people who are either from an eastward direction or in an eastward direction. If Devon is not found soon, I will try to follow this up with more specific questions.

Update: This little guy was found today, March 31, in a lake. He appears to have drowned. No one knows how he got to the lake yet. Rest in peace, Devon.

Sierra Lamar Update

It's been over a week, and Sierra Lamar, who disappeared intead of getting on the school bus in Freemont, California, and making it to school last Friday, has still not been found. Quite a few people have asked for an update, and I thought about it decided that the best question to ask at this point is "how can Sierra be found?"

This starts with Strength crossed by the Queen of Wands. We have a woman diligently looking for Sierra, who is represented by Strength. This is gives me hope that there is still time to find her. Some very interesting background about what has happened is the Lovers, reversed. I am very inclined to interpret this, as the Lovers not only literally means "lovers", but choices, as a bad choice that Sierra, herself, made. I also think romance was part of the picture, so I think asking everyone who had a romantic interest in Sierra, no matter how old or young, would be a good place to start. The card representing past causes is Judgement, reversed, affirming that Sierra used bad judgement on this occasion. In possible outcomes, we get the Queen of Pentacles, reversed. This is a selfish woman who does not have Sierra's best interests at heart; I am not quite sure how she fits into the picture just yet. Something that will happen is the ten of pentacles, reversed. The ten of pentacles is an inheritance or a financial gift, and it looks like resources will be spent in many avenues, not all of them fruitful in producing clues, before Sierra is found. So.......we have a message so far that this involves romantic interests, and that the clues had by law enforcement so far may not be the best. An upside down court card, such as this reversed Queen of Pentacles, is often a deliberate attempt at deceit, and I feel that the clues that have been left were left in a way to throw off the investigation. Which really means that questioning Sierra's friends about every, single thing they can all remember and going to every single place she has been for the several months is the best way to proceed. It looks, also, like the Queen of Wands is already beginning to do this.

The first card on the staff is the nine of pentacles, reversed. Upright, this card is resourceful independance. Because the card is reversed, I am going to say that in order to find out who has sustained an unhealthy interest in Sierra, law enforcement will really have to dig deep into more than one person's personal affairs. Also, I think the reversal of this card is telling us that search warrents will be hard to obtain in this case. The next card, describing the environment, is the King of Wands, reversed. This is likely to be an actual person in Sierra's surroundings, and upright he is a married, decent and faithful kind of man. As he falls reversed, I will have to say that while he is still possibly married, he may be separated or divorced, or have been married multiple times. I would expect him to be insecure, hence his interest in teenage girls, and significantly older than Sierra. Also, his reversal tells me that he is not honest, so law enforcement will have to really dig into Sierra's emails and statements from her friends about EVERYONE she has mentioned in order to find him. The next card, in the place of hopes, is the Hanged Man, and as he falls upright, this is a card of sacrifice. The Queen of Wands is willing to make many sacrifices to find Sierra. The final outcome is the Knight of Pentacles, reversed. This is someone who is slowing down the investigation deliberately. He is younger than the King of Wands, and is the one who has been leaving Sierra's personal effects about for others to find. The persistance of the Queen of Wands can win here, if she refuses to give up. Sleuthing through Sierra's past is the best way to find her at this point.

One more thought on this: The reversed Queen of Pentacles could very well be an accomplice or an accessory after the fact, and her actions could be what is represented by the reversed Knight of Pentacles.
