The Lyon Sisters

Katherine and Sheila Lyons, ten and twelve years old, disappeared in 1975, in Maryland, at Wheaton Plaza. There was massive media coverage, and everywhere that could possibly be searched was searched; every lead was investigated....yet no trace of the girls was ever found.

So....what happened to them and where are they? The reading starts with the two of pentacles crossed by the six of pentacles. This almost screams material resources. The two is about maintaining balence amid change, and sometimes about communication, and the six is about reaping what is sown or collecting and paying what is owed. It is hard to imagine chilren as young as Katherine and Sheila Lyon experiencing circumstances containing these elements! Beneath this, we have the eight of swords, reversed, which in this position, tells us that restrictions that had been in place were eased immediately before the girls disappeared and contributed to the situation in one way or another. It's possible that this represents the parents allowing the girls to shop by themselves at Wheaton Plaza. Behind this, we also have the ace of wands, which is the opportunity that was created for the perpetrator. He (and it WAS a "he") had no difficulty getting the girls to listen to him and leave the plaza with him. The next card we find is the six of swords, which is a card of travel, and I think the message therein is clear. The girls were taken somewhere else. This was done with relative ease, and the next card we have describes the person who did it; the King of Pentacles, reversed. He is a man who is dishonest about money, associated with white collar crime and, oftentimes, other crime, and is often a gambler.
The ten of swords comes up reversed in the place of fears, which represents the sad fear both girls had of never seeing their family again. In the place of environment, we have the nine of swords, telling of worry, imprisonment, and possibly, death. This is followed by the four of swords, reversed, which, when falling in this position, is a card of hoping for an opportunity to act or run, but which, sadly, never materialized. The last card here is the two of swords, which is the stalemate that this case has become. I find it interesting that six cards from the suit of swords came up in this reading, and that two cards with a value of two, and two cards with a value of six came up. Swords represents violence, and east......for instance, the nine of swords in the place of environment could simply mean "nine to the east". It could also mean an awareness of death or danger, or it could mean both. The pentacles that appeared in the reading point not only to monetary matters as a possible motive, but possibly to political matters.....I do not think the perpetrator was linked by familial connection here, but possibly by business dealings with one or both of the girls' parents. The two of swords is often a truce of sorts, sometimes between family members. It's appearance has me wondering if contact, unreported to the media, was made by the perpetrator in the way of a threat to the girls; and if that might be the reason they were never found. The only card that is not a sword or a pentacle is the ace of wands, which was the opportunity. It seems to me that not all of the statements of witnesses were properly investigated, and that not all of those who knew both girls were investigated, either. Someday, I think the whole secret will unravel because of a statement offered by an accomplice or an accessory after the fact, and I think the person's attorney will urge him or her to do it. This may have already happened, and it may be up to cold case investigators to re-examine statements and evidence and put it all together.

Seasons Greetings

Solstice Greetings, everyone; and the best of blessings!

Gabrielle Swainson

Fifteen year old Gabrielle Swainson disappeared from her home in South Carolina on August 18 of this year. It happened during the early morning hours, while her mother was at work. Some time ago, someone asked me to do a reading for her, but I have been holding off, hoping that Gabrielle would be found. A man named Freddie Grant has been in custody for several months in connection to Gabrielle's disappearance. This reading starts with the Knight of Pentacles, reversed, crossed by the ten of cups. This seems like a rather clear message already: an adult, but not yet middle aged or old, male who is discontent over the fact that the familial harmony symbolized by the ten of cups has eluded him. Founding this, we have the two of pentacles, which tells us that attempts on this man's part to communicate were either not received well, or not received at all. The Page of Pentacles appears next, and this card also heralds a messenger, but messages conveyed by pentacles are not always spoken or written words; sometimes they are favors or gifts. In any event, these "messages" were not properly understood by their recipient. As a location, all of these pentacles would point north, but ever so slightly, as the Knight is reversed, and we get a value of two on the two of pentacles, and a value of eleven on the Page. It could either be eleven, or possibly one plus one.

AS the best possible outcome, we have the Knight of Pentacles. This card is often law enforcement in readings such as this, and he is already involved to some degree. He falls upright, so I believe that his inquiry concerning the Knight of Pentacles is warrented. The next card is the card that makes my heart sink.....the Tower, reversed. This speaks of overthrowing perceived "obstacles" that somehow stood in the way of the Knight of Pentacles acheiving his goals. Had Gabbiee only vanished a day or two ago, I might wonder if she had just ben held against her will somewhere, but sadly, I think she has been hostage in one place for too long.

In the place of fears, we have the four of wands, reversed. This would be a place with a garden or a trellis.......a manicured place to enjoy the outdoors.....but not too far outdoors, and close to houses. In the place of environment, we have the ten of pentacles, reversed, which speaks to poor risks, monetary losses, and perhaps robbery. The King of Wands appears in the place of hopes; this is a man who is trying to find Gabrielle. He is a bit more stable in lifestyle and career than the Knight of Swords, and a bit more inclined to answer to science, rather than instinct. The last card here is the two of wands, which is a card of endeavors that require more than one person. It can also represent scientific method, which in Gabrielle's case, would be forensic evidence. I am sorry to say that I do not think I see Gabrielle coming home on her own, (I sincerely hope that I am wrong) but I think forensic evidence plays a significant role in solving this case.

Private Message About Comments On This Blog

You know who you are. You are the person who wants to argue about American politics. Please, this blog is a place where I discuss DIVINATION, Tarot especially, about events that are followed by the media. You have contacted me in a couple of places on the internet now, and I answered you appropriately, and what I deem to be the right place. This is one of the very reasons I moderate my comments here.

Colton Ross Barrera

Colton Ross Barrera disappeared from Kansas on September 26, 2008. He was supposed to call a friend for a ride home from skating, but never did. His disappearance was initially thought to be on his own accord, as if he ran away, but his family never thought so. Four years is a long time, if he ran away, so I am going to ask the Tarot what happened. The reading starts with the World, reversed, crossed by the Fool. This is an unusual message: lack of opportunity crossed by opportunity! Or, perhaps, lack of means for a spur of the moment opportunity.  Beneath this, we  have the eight of swords, which is a card of bondage and trivial details. Much time has already been wasted on things that have not panned out, but this, we already know. Also in the past, we have the Page of Wands, who is a young person who can actually tell us something pertinent, if we listen. He or she may be blond, and have a fair complexion. Usually, this card represents someone who is a child, but as four years have passed, this person is likely to be a young adult now. Testimony from this person will very likely contradict past testimony from other sources or possibly his or her own past testimony, as the five of wands, reversed, comes up in the realm of possibilities. Something that will happen is the four of cups, which is a sort of emotional dissatisfaction with the status quo of the case. As a direction, this card would point slightly to the west. Also, for location, grassy areas near a creek or small creek bed. I am also getting a picture of a bored young man who was not happy with things just as they were, but wanting excitement.

In the place of fears, we have the ten of cups, reversed, heralding loss of friendship and betrayal, but how deep did this betrayal go, and what did it entail? Often, this card speaks of family relationships. In the home environment, we have the Empress, the "mother" in the Tarot, and as she is upright, she is favorably disposed toward Colton. This is followed by the Knight of Swords, reversed, which is a card of violence. I also think that this Knight represents someone in Colton's acquaintance, with whom Colton did not see eye to eye. This would be a young man, with brown or darkish hair, and blue or hazel eyes. This is also the indicator in this reading that Colton met with foul play, rather than running away from home. The last card on the staff is Judgment, reversed. This card speaks to a fear of things "never changing", and sometimes, a fear of death.

Closer analysis of this reading leads me to wonder if there was a fight over a girl that went further than it was intended to go, or if all the witnesses or potential witnesses have been questioned properly. I do not believe that Colton ran away from home.

Update On Caleigh Harrison

Caleigh Harrison, who went missing from Rockport Beach, Massachusetts, this past Spring, has still not been found. I will try to do an update to the reading I did in May, when she disappeared. For the past, I drew the two of wands, the hierophant, reversed, and the two of swords. This tells us that whatever happened, more than one person was involved, a very unreliable explanation was given both for Caleugh's disapearance and for wherever Caleigh ended up, and the search is stalled now.

For the present, we have the Page of Wands, reversed, the Moon, reversed, and the Knight of Cups. The Page of Wands is often a message or information, and upside down, this would either be bad news or no information. The Moon reversed is deception and bad luck. The Knight of Cups is a young man, betwee the ages of nineteen and about thirty-five with light brown hair and blue of hazel eyes. Somehow, such a person has a role in this. Water could also play a role.

For the future, we have Temperance, lending another watery influence, but somehow balenced; the Page of Swords, reversed, and the five of wands. I do not like this.....the Page of Swords reversed is someone with information, but who will not give it in a straightforward, honest fashion, and the five of wands represents more games and lies. Wands would also point east. I keep hoping to hear that she is found alive, but the Moon reversed really worries me.

What Happened To Christina Whittaker?

Christina Whittaker was last seen in Missouri on November 13, 2009. Police found no evidence of foul play at the time, but she is still missing. Friends and family insist that Christina would never leave her child, so I am going to see what the Tarot has to say. This begins with the Devil, which is a card of bondage and speaks to an opportunity for bad things to happen. It is crossed by the King of Wands. I would expect him to be a man who has his path in life established already, and he may be a father. Somehow, he was involved in Christina's life. Beneaeth this, we have the five of wands, which is a card of games and often, of deceit. The perpetrator may have posed as a volunteer in efforts to find Christina. In the past, but before Christina disappeared, we have the three of swords, reversed, telling us that someone felt "wronged" somehow, and wanted revenge! Could Christina have been stalked? Following up this idea, the moon, reversed appears. This card does, indeed, tell us that Christina had a secret enemy. The moon reversed often refers to deceptions and lies. Next, the two of cups appears, reversed. This speaks to a broken partnership, often romantic. Did Christina have an obcessed admirer? It is beginning to look that way.

The seven of swords comes up reversed in the place of fears, and when this card appears reversed, it means competence and ability, and I believe this means that the perpetrator has already found an attorney. The Wheel of Fortune comes up in the place of environment, actually backing up the idea that the perpetrator has legal counsel.......he "feels very lucky". The next card is Temperance, in the place of hopes. In a perversed way, someone is hoping that things will remain "tempered", and that the boat will not be rocked. The last card is the two of swords. Right now, things are stalemated in terms of finding Christina.

A lot of sword cards came up here, pointing us east as a possible location. But then, we also have a reversed cups card, and cups and water represent west. It's possible that Christina is "seven" to the east, but water somehow brought her closer to where she was. I do not think she is very far from home.

Dylan Redwine Update

As promised, here is an update to the last reading I posted on this blog, which was about Dylan Redwine, who disappeared on either November 18 or November 19 while visiting his father in Colorado.

Three cards I drew for the past are the seven of pentacles, the five of pentacles, reversed, and the four of swords, also reversed. Earth and air are reperesented, here; the seven of pentacles has to do with working for something, but on more mundane levels, digging. The five of pentacles reversed speaks to renewed relationships. Perhaps this was the sincere part of the whole plan between Dylan and his father. But then we run into the four of swords, reversed. This card, when upright, speaks of matters that are at rest, or dormant. Reversed, it tells us that something that was dormant has been awakened.

For the present, I drew the ten of wands, reversed, the eight of wands, and the nine of cups. We have moved from earth and air to fire and water. When reversed, the ten of wands warns of lost lawsuits, separation, lies, and duplicity. So we have those things as possible motivation for Dylan's disappearance. The eight of wands speaks of impulse and infatuation, providing even more in the way of motive. And then we have the nine of cups. Somewhere, near or at a favored camping or picnicing spot of family member, either Dylan or critical clues can be found. Yes, water somehow played a role.

In the future, we have the Empress, or the mother, awaiting Dylan's return. We also have the seven of wands, reversed, telling us that Dylan is not in a safe place; this card also cautions her against any indecision or hesitance to take action in order to find him. The last card is the five of swords, reversed. This was done as a personal, angry, vengeful statement, but the person who did it will not get away with it. I am sensing a lot of urgency, on Dylan's part, to solve this quickly. I hope that means that he can be found safe, but at this point, I am worried.

Dylan Redwine

Dylan Redwine, of Colorado, was last seen a week ago, at his father's home near Durango, Colorado. He was supposed to visit his father for the Thanksgiving holiday. There is now a search in progress for him. My question is, what happened to Dylan, and where is he?

We start with the ten of cups, reversed, crossed by the four of wands. This gives a message of unhappiness in the home, crossed by some sort of happy event, or haven. Beneath this, we have the hierophant, who represents tradition. This could either be a minister, counselor, priest or mentor of some sort, whose guidance had helped Dylan in the past. Or it could be an institution representing tradition, such as a church or a school that had a positive effect on Dylan. Either way, it was something Dylan wanted back. Also in the past, we have the Page of Wands, which is usually a message of some kind, but in this reading, I think it represents Dylan. I also think something he had tried to tell others in his situation was not properly heard. The next card, in the place of things that have not yet come to pass, is the Empress, which is the "mother" card in the Tarot. She is also the very best result here, and the very best person for Dylan right now. The next card, in the place of things that either will happen or are happening, is Judgement, reversed, which tells of separation and fear. Sometimes it even speaks of fear of death. There is something outside of Dylan's control right now, separating him from where he wants to be, and from where he is safe. I do not believe he ran away.

In the place of fears, we find this reinforced by the two of wands, reversed, telling us of betrayals, fear, domination, and the fear of being overpowered. In the place of environment, we find the Moon, which, in this reading, speaks of things hidden or disguised, and of deception. Wherever Dylan is, he is hidden, and I think water is somehow part of the picture. For a direction, this card points us west. The eight of cups, reversed, is in the place of Dylan's hopes; this tells me that if Dylan could reverse the choice he made that got him into this situation, he would do so. And then we have the Page of Swords, as the final outcome, as another young person who is watching everyone search. For good or for ill, this person knows where Dylan is, yet has not come forward. His numeric value is eleven, and his direction would be east. Swords occasionally tells us of cyber communications.

My sense of this is that Dylan is alive.......I sincerely hope I am right. I will keep praying for his safe return, and I will come back to this if he is not home within a few days.

Who Murdered Jersey Bridgeman?

Six year old Jersey Bridgeman, of Arkansas, was found murdered several days ago in house in Bentonville. There are no suspects in custody as I write this, and I will see what the cards have to say about how this happened. I asked about who and why. The reading begins with the Queen of Wands crossed by the nine of pentacles. This is a woman who would have enjoyed bringing Jersey up, and had a lot to offer her, but was somehow prevented, or blocked, from doing anything for her. The nine of pentacles, in this case, represents what was never allowed to materialize for Jersey.

Beneath this, we have the five of swords, which is a card of extreme anger and revenge. Somehow, a person responisible for Jersey felt personal resentment toward her, and one of the reasons is revealed in the next card, which is the three of pentacles, reversed. There was a sense that having a child that age was an obstacle to employment opportunties, and to resources in general. Death, reversed, represents stagnation, and unchanging circumstances. It also tells us that this child was always in a certain amount of danger. The next card is the three of wands, reversed. Whoever killed this little girl had an accomplice, as this card speaks of assistance and help, but reversed, the help is untrustworthy. It looks to me as if one party to Jersey's murder will betray the other. Another meaning we get from this card when it falls reversed is physical suffering and domination of a victim. Sadly, abuse played a role in this child's death.

The Page of Swords appears in the place of fears. This is someone who has already given false testimony to law enforcement, while knowing exactly what happened. It is also one accomplice who scares the other accomplice very much. In the place of environment, we get the four of wands, reversed. This is usually a card of celebration, sometimes family celebration. Reversed, the meaning does not really change that much, except that it sometimes means celebrations cut short, or happiness, but not perfect. This describes a life cut short, and speaks to Jersey's innocence. It also hints at the home and family environment where she was found, even though the home was empty. Following this, in the place of hopes, we have The High Priestess, reversed. This gives a feminine aura to the situation, and tells us that Jersey was hoping for maternal assistance that never came, hence the reversal. And the final card is the Queen of Swords, reversed. This a an intolerant, angry woman who shares responsibility in Jersey's fate.

Ethan Hunter Bennett

Ethan Hunter Bennett disappeared from Indiana on September eleven, when his parents were out of town. Since then, no one has seen him. So the question I posed is, "what happened to Ethan, and why hasn't anyone heard from him?" We start with the Knight of Cups crossed by the eight of swords. The Knight of Cups is a young man, sentimental and very likely, romantic, and he is between the ages of nineteen and about thirty, in this case. I am thinking that this may represent Ethan. Whatever he was attempting to do before he disappeared, his heart was in the right place, and he had no idea that anyone would ever have to look for him. The eight of swords is a card of crisis followed by entrapment. Leading up to this, we have the Lovers, reversed. This tells us that Ethan had recently made a choice to end a partnership of some sort. Often, this card speaks to a romantic partnership, but not always. The eight of cups, (the second "eight" to appear in this reading) also appears in Ethan's recent past, and this card also speaks to a situation of "changing one's mind" after aquiring or acheiving something. So.....a change of heart was a major factor in this situation. In future possibilities, we find the seven of wands, which speaks of "defending one's own", as in ones's own family or property. This may mean that either Ethan, or proper clues to what happened to him, can only be found on private property somewhere, for which law enforcement will need a search warrent. The Magician reversed appears in the place of what is, or will be. I do not like to see this card here, because it clearly means that power was used for destructive ends.

In  the place of fears, we find Justice, reversed. As this case drags on, people close to Ethan are beginning to feel that it may never be solved. The Knight of Swords is in the environment, somehow; and when I first noticed this card, I thought it might represent violence done to Ethan, but now that I look harder, I think it is law enforcement. It tells me that there is at least one police officer who is very determined to see Ethan found. The four of swords comes up in the place of hopes. In this reading, it confers two messages; first, it tells us to be patient because elements of this matter cannot be rushed and things WILL become known at the right time; second, it shows a hope that Ethan will be found safe. Sadly, the reversed Magician had some very destructive designs concerning Ethan, but I will have hope. The last card is the Page of Cups, reversed. This is the card of the amateur, or the inexperienced. It also betrays deception by way of coverup. This points to someone involved enough in Ethan's circumstances to "cover" for someone. To sum up, it looks as if the answers primarily rest with a violent male, and rest secondarily with a deceptive female.

Lauren Spierer

Lauren Spierer was last seen on June 3, 2011 in Indiana. There was a request in comments from another post for a reading for her, so I will see what I can find out from the cards.
We start with the Magician reversed crossed by the ace of swords. That is interesting. The Magician upside down means an abuse of skill and power, and the ace of swords is a card of strength and often force, both in love and hate. This suggests that Lauren had an enemy, but no one has suggested that she was ever involved in anything that would bring such drastic conflicts into her life. Beneath this, we have the Page of Wands. This is activity before Lauren disappeared. The card points us south, and suggests that she had some sort of communication with whomever last saw her, prior to going missing. The next card to tell us of past events is Death. I do not like to see this here, even though the card usually does not refer to physical death. It tells us that things changed completely for Lauren on that day.
The next card, representing things that have not yet been explained, is the Knight of Pentacles. He is a young man between the ages of nineteen and forty (probably on the younger end of the spectrum) who has information of value. As he falls upright, I am not sure it is time to call him a suspect or determine that he is a foe. He could be the driver of a utility vehicle or an otherwise slow moving truck. The next card we have is the Page of Swords, which is a card of spying and sometimes, of troublemaking. There IS information concerning this that could come to light or be made public, but it will be done in a meanspirited, rather manipulative way.
In the place of fears, we have the Queen of Wands reversed. This almost always speaks to jealousy on the part of a woman. In this woman's environment, we have the six of cups, which paints a picture of a family environment for her, with children. In the place of this woman's hopes, we find the Knight of Wands, who is probably her partner and the father of the children indicated on the six of cups. And then, for the final outcome, we see the ten of swords. This does not bode well for Lauren, as the ten of swords is a card of endings, often violent endings. The situation indicated by this reading indicates that Lauren may have been targeted by a jealous woman.

What Happened To Robert Farris?

Robert Farris has been missing since September 5, 2012. He was last seen in Prairie Village Kansas, and Missouri police have an open missing persons report for him. As he is an adult, he may not wish to be found, but someone asked me to do a reading. His picture is to the left, and here is the reading.

The reading begins with the Page of Pentacles crossed by the King of Pentacles. Both of these cards point north. The page, in this case, is a message of a communique of some sort, and the king is a man over the age of forty. It looks very much as if Robert was looking for work,and answered an adverstisement for same. Beneath this, we have the three of swords, reversed. This card represents disputes and in-fighting within a family or community, and often divorces and custody battles. Something of this nature influenced Robert's recent past. Something else in Robert's past is Temperance, and this refers to his state of mind at the time he disappeared. There was no intention on his part to mislead anyone, hide, or otherwise drop off the grid. The best that may come out of this situation is the ace of pentacles, which can mean a couple of things. This card represents that which has not yet materialized; and it can either be a work opportunity or money obtained some other way. The appearance of this card makes me a little nervous in this Something that will happen in the future is the nine of pentacles, This card generally describes financial independence. How does a missing man bring financial independence to anyone? But it could also tell us that he will come home on his own.........Once again, the direction is north. "Nine" to the north.

In the place of fears, we have the Fool, reversed, which speaks plainly of bad choices. This is followed up by the Devil in the place of environment. In this position, it is a card of violence and force. I do not like it's appearance here. Next, we have the ace of swords, reversed. Reversed or upright, this card represents great energy and power, but reversed, the message of violence is once again reinforced here. The reading ends with the Tower, reversed. The is another card of oppression and violence, but as it falls reversed, it tells of these things to a lesser degree, and it is also a card of imprisonment.

I will update this is he is not located soon.

How Can Sierra Lamar Be Found?

As a bit of an update to the readings I have done for Sierra Lamar, I decided to ask the Tarot how she can be found. Unfortunately, this case is dragging. I drew three cards for the past here, and those are the two of pentacles, which speak of difficulties with new projects, the Knight of Pentacles, olive complected male with dark hair and eyes; I believe this is the suspect who has been charged, and the eight of pentalces, reversed. Either the suspect's former workmates need to be questioned one more time, or the premises of the suspect's former job, and the surrounding areas, need to be searched again.

For the present, I drew the Queen of Wands, who has shown up in earlier readings about Sierra, the King of Wands reversed, and the six of cups reversed. The Queen here is a woman who probably has blond or strawberry blond hair and is working hard to find Sierra. The reversed King is a man who's efforts are countering her efforts, and effectively stalling her. The six of cups reversed represents outworn ideas for solving cases like this, that have worked in the past, but will not work now. The King of Wands is not allowing the Queen to use her instincts to get at the truth.

In the future, we get the seven of swords, reversed; the six of pentacles, reversed, and the five of wands. The seven of swords reversed speaks to good legal counsel, but it is somehow met with the bad debts or unfair dealings represented by the reversed six of pentacles. The last card is the five of wands, which tells of more contradictions and games. It looks very much to me as if the suspect's former place of employment, or his former workmates, could yield the answers.


Dede Spicher Won't Answer Question About Kyron Horman

As a bit of an update to the readings I have done for Kyron Horman, I am going to do a reading about a witness by the name of Dede Spicher, who was recently deposed by Eldon Rosenthal, the attorney who represents Kyron's mother in a civil lawsuit she filed to find answers to her son's missing persons case. The question I have concerning this is, "why did Dede Spicher assert her right to remain silent so much?"

The reading starts off with the five of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the six of swords. This is curious. The five of pentacles reversed speaks of the return of old friends or relatives, and the six of swords means travel, often from one state or country to another. As the six of swords crosses the five of pentacles, we can take it to mean that this "return" has not yet taken place. The appearance of the six does refer to the distinct possiblity, however; and is part of the answer to my question about why Dede Spicher will not testify: she is trying NOT to reveal Kyron's whereabouts! This is based by the Moon, which sometimes means psychic or mystic abilities, but also often means lying and dishonesty. I think we may opt for the latter in this case. Behind this, we have the four of pentacles, telling us that something of value, in this case, information, has indeed been held back. The Queen of cups appears as someone from whom we have not yet heard, and as she falls reversed, we cannot expect the truth from her when it is her turn to speak. The Chariot reversed tells us that Dede considers her refusal to answer questions a bit if a "victory" that she has won by unethical means. There is a sense here that she, personally, has been somehow wronged by the person she is hurting. This is a bit twisted...............This will stall on her, though. I do not believe she will get away with refusing to cooperate indefinately.

The first card on the staff is the Sun, reversed. This can be victory, but not complete, or clouded joy; and it can also mean testimony, but not the complete truth. I think Eldon Rosenthal, who represents Kyron's mother, is very aware that he has not been told the complete truth in all of the depositions he has conducted so far, and understands how he needs to proceed in order to find the truth. This is followed up well by the seven of cups, reversed, in the plae of environment. Upright, this is a card of dreams and delusions, but reversed, it is a card of understanding and competence. We find Death in the place of hopes and fears. While there is an outside chance that the card could be speaking to us at face value, this is unusual in a reading. While I do think that the questions being asked of witnesses, Dede Spicher included, are ever vigilant to determine if Kyron is alive or not, I think that this is a fear of many other things on Dede's part. I also think it represents the solid fact that Dede actually DOES have valuable testimony. Directionally, this card points north. The reading ends with the four of wands, which is a strange card to answer the question I asked! The four of wands is a card of balence, and happy, well balenced relationships. This would tell us that Dede Spicher finally tells us what we need to know, and it tells of home and refuge.

April Jones

April Jones, of Wales, reportedly was last seen on October 1 of this year when she was seen getting into a vehicle near her home. She is five years old. Someone asked me to see what the Tarot has to say about her case, so I will do a reading.

This reading begins with the three of swords crossed by the five of cups. The three of swords usually appears when there are family arguements and heated disagreements, often custody battles. The five of cups following this card usually means regret, and sometimes the payment of child support, but with disappointment involved. I am not saying that these elements are directly in April's life, but somehow, there is either a direct or indirect influence of these things in the perpetrator's motive. Founding this is the three of wands, reversed. This picture also involves treachery disguised as help. Could the perpetrator have participated in a search? Behind this, we have the Moon, reversed. When the Moon shows up reversed in a reading, it tells us that duplicity and lies have played a big role in the matter at hand. Someone whose role has yet to be discovered is the Page of Swords, reversed. This is a youngish man or woman who, in this case, has premeditated this crime. This person has remained undetected here. The nine of cups represents what will happen in the near future, and that is defensiveness tinged with impatience. So far, I am a bit relieved at what I don't see, which is violence, but dismayed that I see this case dragging on, without April being found immediately.
Whoever has taken April is already reconsidering the action. It has not been the great idea the perpetrator thought it was. The eight of cups tells us this, in the place of feelings. The environment, represented by the five of pentacles, tells us that everyone who does know about this is advising the responisible party to confess. A church may be involved here. The Hermit comes up in the place of hopes, and this is an older man, possibly a reverend or a counselor, who is trying to persuede someone to to the right thing. The last word here is Temperance, which means that this little girl will be found, with law enforcement patiently working all leads.
I wish I had more here, but I don't.

More Questions About Skylar Neese

There have been more questions about Skylar Neese, and I have intended for quite a while to come back to her case if she was not found by now. Skylar was reported missing in early July of this year, and has not been seen since. I will try to focus on what has transpired with Skylar, personally, since July 7, and try to hone in on possible whereabouts. Keep in mind that I cannot get a name or an address from the Tarot, just descriptions.

Focusing on the past for just a moment, I asked about what Skylar did that helped to create the situation in the first place. The three cards I drew are the eight of cups, reversed, the Devil, reversed, and the seven of swords. Reversed, the eight of cups tells of celebrations and parties, but with an element of the spiritual abandoned in favor of physical pleasure. Brought down to earth, I would say this card is telling us that Skylar met someone who wanted to take advantage of her in some way, but did not actually care about her. The Devil reversed is telling us that Skylar was too slow to make an important decision. This is followed by the seven of swords, which speaks of someone attempting to take something that does not belong to him. An unjust advantage was taken of Skylar.

The seven of wands is our first card describing the present. Once again, this card is a caution against indecision. There are also elements of anxiety and embarrassment connected to this card. The Hermit, reversed, appears next. Reversed, he represents immaturity and foolishness. As a person, he would be an older but immature man, probably old enough to be Skylars father, but the proverbial "perpetual peter pan". Our next card is the two of swords, reversed. This is the release of formerly stalemated energies, but not always in the proper direction. I believe something happened to Skylar that involved an immature older man.

The future gave us the two of cups, the Star, reversed, and Justice. The two of cups is a good card to describe a partnership. I sincerely hope that is what it means here. I will have to say, though; that I do not like the Star coming up reversed, as it augers disappointment. For a location, the two of cups would point west. The reversed Star would warn that Skylar "cannot see the stars" from where she is. The Hermit is a north-pointing card, but he is reversed. I still think Skylar is somewhere within an eight to twelve mile radius of where she was last seen. The last card is Justice, and while Justice is a good thing, I am still praying that we find Skylar alive before we get Justice for her.

Jessica Ridgeway Found Deceased

Sadly, the remains found on Wednesday in Arvada, Colorado have been identified as Jessica Ridgeway. How I wish she could have been found sooner. How could anyone harm a child?

Monday, October 8, 2012

Jessica Ridgeway

Jessica Ridgeway disappeared this past Friday. She never got on the bus to go to school, and was not seen by any of her schoolmates Friday morning. She disappeared from Westminster, Colorado, and the number to call is anyone sees her is 303-658-4336.

This reading starts with the King of Pentacles, reversed, crossed by the Hanged Man. There is a man who uses money and material resources to manipulate others in this picture. And he has everything in Jessica's situation connected to himself at a standstill. The ace of wands, a new beginning, is the part of the background that made Jessica's disappearance advantageous for him. Also in the background is the Tower, suggesting an overthrow of a comfortable lifestyle and possible bankruptcy. As a strong possibility, we get the Page of Pentacles, reversed. This augers unfavorable news about Jessica, but nothing that has been stated or heard yet. As an event that will take place, the two of cups, reversed appears. This foretells a divorce or the breakup of a relationship, and somehow, Jessica has become a casaulty of it.
In the place of fears, we have the seven of pentacles, reversed. I strongly believe that this is a fear of the perpetrator; and that he is worried about losing everything that he, personally, has worked for. In the place of environment, we have the Emperor, reversed, lending, once again, a masculine influence in this. The Emperor is the "father" card when he is upright, reversed, he speaks to an immature, irresponsible male influence. In the place of hopes, we have the nine of cups, reversed. There is a chance that overindulgence in alcohol or drugs will cause this man to make the mistake that will get him caught. The final outcome is the Sun, which is an excellent card, reassuring us that at this moment, things can be worked out to the satisfaction of everyone concerned. So I would cautously venture Jessica should be found safely. Cautously.....I do not like the reversed two of cups or the reversed Page of Pentacles. The two of cups, because the card deals with separations; and the reversed page, because he deals in bad news.
For a direction to start searching, I would be inclined to look "one" to the north, and then "two" to the east. Cups generally point west, but the two of cups is reversed, so it seems prudent to interpret this as east, since misleading and deception are already part of the picture. Perhaps "one" state, then "two" states.  I will follow this up a few days, if Jessica is not found.

Kelly Bordeaux

Kelly Bordeaux is a Fort Bragg soldier who disappeared on April 14 of this year. The other day, someone asked me if I would do a reading about her, so here it is. In answer to the question, "what happened to Kelly Bordeaux", this is what I got. The Emperor, reversed crossed by the Queen of Swords begins the reading. The Emperor is an adult male who either has or had a responsiblity to care for children or set an example for them and shirked it. Somehow, this aspect of his character became part of the circumstances of Kelly's disappearance. The Queen of Swords is a woman whose life revolves around thinking and work, rather than homemaking and children. These are two people who are involved in what happened to Kelly. Founding this, we have Temperance. This merely tells me that Kelly had the ability to adapt well, and would fit in well wherever she was stationed. The is followed by the seven of pentacles, reversed. Some project, related to her work, had either failed or taken to long to complete. This is also, somehow, a reference to months........but I am not picking up a clear picture concerning why this is important.

There is a very strong chance that someone involved in this situation will face bankruptcy, or serious financial loss, indicated by the four of pentacles reversed in the place of things that could happen but have not......yet. Something that will happen is the six of wands, which I think, is news that actually tells us something tangible.

Another person involved here is the Knight of Pentacles, reversed. He appears in the place of fears, and he is the one most directly connected to Kelly's disappearance. He is a young man, close to Kelly's age, possibly a couple of years older. His general environment is described by the Hanged Man, which is reality and circumstances suspended. Keeping this secret has been difficult for him. In his hopes falls the Sun. This is a great card to have in a reading, as it augers success in any projects,  but here it is only a hope. The final outcome, representing the reason for his involvement in Kelly's disappearnace, is the six of pentacles, reversed. He apparently felt cheated somehow. This was related to money and material resources; possibly to a promotion or distinction in the workplace.

A possible location here would be the six of wands, which would tell us "six" to the south, as south is the direction represented by wands. Also, I think the Hanged Man carries a double meaning here. I think Kelly has been in the same place for a long time. Sadly, I do not see the ups and downs of a living person indicated by this reading, although I would love to be wrong about this. The activity outlined by the reading is all on the parts of the people involved in this crime.

Skylar Neese

Skylar Neese was reported missing by her parents in West Virginia on July 7 of this year. It has been over nine weeks since she disappeared. The question put to the cards is what happened to Skylar, and where is she? This reading starts with the Moon crossed by the four of cups, which is deception entangled with malcontent. There has already been a coverup in this girl's case. In a case like this, the Moon can tell of secret enemies. Below this, we have the two of swords, reversed. Skylar was already dealing with someone she knew she should have avoided. Following this up, we get the Page of Swords, which indicates spying or planning. Someone had either stalked Skylar or planned to take her somewhere. Next, we have the Knight of Pentacles. As a person, he is a man between the ages of nineteen and fortyone or so, and as an event, it refers to something that was planned. It's position in the reading indicates that more will be revealed, but rather slowly. As a location, it takes us north, to plowed fields. The number associated with it is twelve. The Moon's direction is west........possibly a northwest direction figures into this picture. Another card that came up is the Hermit, reversed. Reversed, this card tells of an adult male who acts like a teenager and refuses to grow up. Almost a perpetual Peter Pan.
In the place of fears, we have the Fool. The Fool is a card of choices; and while Skylar had all of the information she needed to make the proper choice here, she the card appeared upright as a fear. Her considerations at the time are represented by the nine of cups. This is a card physical well-being and health. Next, in hopes or fears, we have the Emperor, which is the "father card" of the Tarot. This also refers to male domination. The final card is the two of wands, reversed. Relating this card back to the two of swords, which came up in the reading reversed earlier, it appears that a disagreement ended in Skylar being dominated by an older male. The two of wands could also be a resort or a large estate.

What Was The Motive In Sierra Lamar's Disappearance?

I got a question the other day about Sierra Lamar's case, and a request for an update. Specifically, the question was abut the motive of the perpetrator here. Sierra Lamar disappeared in March of this year in California. A suspect has been arrested, but has not entered a plea.

 For the reading, I got three cards for the past concerning the motive: the ten of pentacles, the ace of pentacles, and the Tower, reversed. The ten of pentacles is usually and inheritance, but sometimes a gift, prize, or a one time payment in a large amount. This type of element was part of the motive. Next, backing this up, is the ace of pentacles, which is a similar message, but more of an opportunity to make money, rather then money given as a gift or a prize. Following this, is the Tower, reversed, which in that postition, means inprisonment and sometimes the unravelling of plans to a distasterous effect.

In the present, we have the nine of cups, reversed, speaking to imperfections concerning someone's plans. The three of wands came up next, which means treachery, and help was offered that was untrustworthy. This is all followed up by the King of Wands, reversed, who is a nasty and unyielding male, who is older than Sierra and was at odds or cross purposes with her in some way. At least two people have information about what happened to Sierra, although only one knows exactly where she is.

The future brings this person worry about plans and actions that do not pay off, in the form of the seven of pentacles upside down. This is the garden that never grew, the tree that never bore fruit. Also the person who never got paid. Next is the six of swords, reversed, which is a card of travel. Upside down, it tells us that this case, along with Sierra, are not going anywhere, anytime soon. Also, I am still of the opinion that Sierra is not far from her home. The last card is the five of wands, which is a card of games and trickery. The next move, it seems, is up to the court. The court will have to move forward with this case without the cooperation of any defendant.

Could Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins Still Be Alive?

Someone recently asked me to do a reading about Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins, who have both been missing from Iowa since July of this year. I have explained in the past that life and death are sometimes different things spiritually, and since I believe in reincarnation, it's possible for me to get a "yes" answer even if the person I am asking about has died! But sometimes, there are clues in a reading that can lead me to believe that a missing person will, indeed, resume life as the same person with the same identity assumed before he or she went missing, and I will do a reading for these two girls, looking for such clues.

The first three cards, representing the past, are the ten of cups, reversed; the Devil, reversed; and the five of cups, reversed. This already does not look hopeful, because of the ten of cups falling reversed. This indicates betrayal, very likely by a family member(s). I do not like to see family members betray children. The Devil, when he falls reversed, sometimes tells us that we can become free of something that has bound us or hindered us, but he also speaks of indecision in this position. I believe that is the case here. Someone simply was not thinking clearly regarding the disappearance these two girls, or had not thought the whole plan through. The five of cups reversed does speak to the possibiltity that the girls may come back.....this is one of the clues to which I referred in the above pargraph concerning life or death. The card, when reversed, also tells of old friends coming back into the picture, so perhaps someone who has known the family and the girls for a long time has information or can help.

The cards I drew for the present are the Lovers; the Queen of Swords; and the ten of wands, reversed. The Lovers usually speaks of relationships, but sometimes of choices. At this time, the fate of these two girls is in the hands of a couple, and one other person, the Queen of Swords. She is the one influencing the couple involved. Once again, we get betrayal, in the form of the ten of wands upside down, but this time, the betrayal is a little more coutroom based, somehow; and a little less family based. Judging from this, I feel safe guessing that these girls have seen or discovered something that others did not want made public. Someone felt that the best way to protect this knowledge was to hide the girls.

The future brings us Justice, the eight of wands, and Strength, reversed. That message is quite simple. There will be justice, no one is going to get out of any legal difficulty by hiding Lyric and Elizabeth. The eight of wands promises that somehow, in an almost unexpected and surprising way, the girls will be found. Strength reversed warns of abuse of power, though. That is a bit worrisome; however, there is nothing to indicate that the girls are no longer with us, unless the theme of betrayal runs deeper than I initially thought. This reading does focus on the motive for hiding Lyric and Elizabeth. Whoever has them hidden was already hiding some secrets from law enforcement and the judicial system.

Morgan Keyanna Martin

Morgan Keyanna Martin is seventeen years old and disappeared from her St. Petersburg, Florida home on July 25. She was about four months pregnant at this time. The question I will put to the Tarot is "what happened, and where is she?"

The reading begins with the King of wands, reversed, crossed by the five of wands. Morgan was at odds with a man who, not only was a few years older than she, but who was not willing to yield to her desires. Beneath this, we have another male, the reversed King of Cups. This is a man who is dishonest and double dealing. He may have even pretended to help search for Morgan, all the while knowing exactly where she is. As a circumstance in the past that influences Morgan's disappearance, we have Judgement. This is a life-altering situation that worried someone. The High Priestess appears reversed as a distinct possibility. This means that none of the traditional resources are truly serious about unravelling the mystery of what happened to Morgan. Also,this card does not bode well for finding Morgan safe, but I will still hope for the best. Something that will become apparent in the near future is the Page of Cups, reversed, telling us that someone has already misled authorities deliberately, and time was lost, drastically reducing the chances of finding Morgan.
In the place of fears, we have the ten of pentacles. Perhaps a reward for information leading to Morgan, or for finding her? Somehow, it has made an impression on someone. The next card, in the place of environment, is the Hermit. This is a man who is working alone to find Morgan. The reading does not suggest any famillial connection to her. The Sun, or success and light, is in his hopes. And the reading ends with the ace of wands, which is a new direction for the investigation with new leads.
As physical places, the Hermit and Judgement allude to places with hills or peaks, with Judgement also looking into water from the peaks. The High Priestess refers to a similar landscape....heavy on the water symbolism. The ace of wands points south, and the Page of Cups points west, but the page is reversed. Possibly "one" or "eleven" to the south or southwest of where she disappeared.

Will There Be An Arrest In The Ayla Reynolds Case?

Someone asked me for an update in the Ayla Reynolds case, specifically, if there would be an arrest any time in the near future. Ayla Reynolds disappeared from her home in Waterville, Maine on December 16, 2011. She was twenty months old.

Will there be an arrest in Ayla Reynold's case? The reading details that in the past, there was an event that was almost completely lucky for the perpetrator. This is the Wheel of Fortune. It was pure chance that gave this person the opportunity to make Ayla disappear in the first place. The next card is the ten of swords, which is violence. Often, this card describes fatal violence. After this, we have the High Priestess, reversed, telling us of assistance from a female. The High Priestess also speaks of secrecy, and reversed, this screams "accomplice". In addition to being dishonest, this woman is shallow and predictable, however; which may help the investigation.

For the present, we have the Sun. I believe that this is a clue to where Ayla can be found. She is outside, somewhere that either gets a certain amount of sun, or the name "Sun" is part of a place name nearby. I still think she is on private property somewhere. Following this we have the six of swords, reversed. While Ayla has not moved, neither has the investigation. Temperance is the next card describing the present. Temperance describes the proper handling of physical evidence and asking questions at the appropriate time.

In the future, we have the four of pentacles, reversed, telling us that someone may just "let go" of this child's remains at an opportune moment. Upright, this card means hoarding, but reversed, it is quite the opposite. Following this, we have the seven of swords, reversed. This tells us that everything will be done in secret, and the perpetrator stands a reasonably good chance of getting away with it. Death reversed is the last card. Ultimately, hiding what has happened will not be completely possible, as Death, when it falls reversed, is a card of stagnation. In order for an arrest, it will be necessary to watch the suspects closely. They still have some evidence to either destroy or discard.

Susan Cox Powell

Someone asked me if I would do a reading for Susan Cox Powell recently. She was last seen on either December 6 or December 7, 2009 in her home in West Valley, Utah. Her late husband, Josh, has been the main person of interest since she was reported missing. Lately, her father in law, Steve Powell, has also been looked at with suspicion, especially since February of this year, when Josh violently killed himself and the two boys he had with Susan and burned down his house. What a sad situation.

The question I put to the cards was "what happened to Susan Cox Powell, and where is she?" This reading begins with the six of wands, reversed, crossed by the three of wands. The reversed six of wands indicates fear of an enemy, or the message to or from the same, and the three indicates help or assistance. It appears that someone considered Susan a threat because of information she had, and assistance was offered in putting an end to this perceived threat. The ace of pentacles reversed offeres us some background here. This is corruption, selfishness, and dishonestly......about money. Someone could not run the risk of the threat she and her knowledge posed to their financial wellbeing. The sun reversed follows this, telling us of a broken engagement or a voided contract. I think Susan may have told her husband that she wanted a divorce. The ten of wands reversed is a possible outcome, and it warns us that there is still treachery and lying in the picture. The World, reversed, is what happened. It's message is that Susan did not escape the marriage or her situation with Josh quickly enough.

The first card on the staff is the seven of cups, reversed. Unfortunately, the perpetrator here knew exactly what he was doing, every step of the way. The next card, describing environment, tells us why he did these things. It is the Knight of Swords, reversed, and this is a card of violence. The suit if swords also speaks of law enforcement at times, and I think Josh may begun to feel that they were closing in on him. As a location, swords would point west, and the knight would indicate rocky terrain, but this card is upside down. Perhaps there was indecision about location, as the perpetrator did have help. The next card is the four of swords, reversed. This speaks of renewed activity, or hopes of renewed activity. This card also point west, and tells not only of rocky terrain, but possibly old graveyards, churches, or possibly even a hotel or campground where someone might rest. Hotel or campground....very possible. Four of something. It's possible that clues will be found with unrelated renewed digging or activity.  The Page of Cups concludes this reading. This is usually a young person, but sometimes new information. I think in this case it is both, and that one of Susan's late sons had important information, but somehow, the message here is that the information is still valid, and with persistance, can still solve this case.

Arrest In Lisa Irwin Case?

Some recently asked me to do a reading about whether or not there would be an arrest in the case of missing Lisa Irwin, who was reported missing from her Kansas City, Missouri home on Oct. 4, 2011. Lisa was ten months old at that time, she would be almost two years ol now. There have been no arrests, and the only solid clue in this case was a hit by a cadaver dog in the bedroom of the home where she went missing.

This begins with the Devil, crossed by the seven of cups. This is domination of matter over spirit, and it is crossed by too many different directions and vague stories. Someone has deliberately shifted the focus away from actually finding Lisa from the very beginning. For background, we get the four of cups, reversed, which is good news, as an answer to this question. It means that someone involved in the investigation is willing to take a new approach. Matters moving into the past here are represented by the six of pentacles, reversed, which speaks to dishonest dealings involving money, and money gotton through very questionable means. The six of wands appears as something that can happen, and this card refers to good news. It can also mean finding something that has been lost. Unfortunately, an element that is already very much a part of this situation is Justice, reversed. Not only has someone involved lied, but right now, the investigation is off balence. It seems there the effort to find Lisa has evaporated into an effort to prosecute one person, and ignore the accomplices and accomplices after the fact.

In the place of fears, we have the ace of wands. The ace of wands here represents Lisa being found, and the good news of justice being carried out, and we find it as a fear, so I am going to assume that this represents the mindset of the perpetrator. The next card, representing environment, is Death, reversed. Nothing has changed for Lisa. She has been in the same place for quite some time. As a hope, we have Strength. This tells us that the perpetrator is going to hold out as long as he/she can. And as a final outcome, we have the Page of Swords, reversed. This can be a person, possibly a "snitch", who is waiting for his or her own convenience to come forward, or it can be an unforseen event that is not favorable to the whoever last saw Lisa Irwin alive.

Sadly, I do not see an arrest in this reading anytime soon. The tarot is notorius for not giving the best time frames, but as the six of wands did appear as a possibility, perhaps about six months. Hopefully sooner....maybe six weeks.

Lyle Stevik

On September 16,2001, in Grays Harbor, Washington, a young man who used the name Lyle Stevik hanged himself. He was found in his hotel room. Lyle Stevik is a name used for a character in a novel by Joyce Carol Oates. The number to call, if anyone has information, is 360-537-6319.

The question I put to the cards is, "who is this man, and where is he from?" This reading starts with the ten of wands crossed by the ace of cups. This young man was experiencing more than his fair share of burdens, and had obviously become impatient. Had he simply waited, the ace of cups indicates that while he may not have gotton better off materially, an important relationship would have had a new beginning. Beneath this, we have the High Priestess, reversed. This is a feminine influence; possibly a relationship that was only a fling for her, but serious for him. This is followed by the ace of wands, reversed, which is a false start, in this case, with the same relationship. A possible outcome would have been the four of cups, reversed, which is reconciliation, had "Lyle" lived. In what will come to be, we have the Queen of Wands, reversed. This is a mistrustful, overly dependant woman. She may be the only person who knows the current circumstances behind this case well enough to identify "Lyle".

 His secrets are represented by the three of wands, which would point south to tell us where he came from. His reason for travel was business, and it was probably international travel. In the place of friends and family, we have the two of wands, which tells me that someone, somewhere, is looking for him, but does not know where to look. Hopes and fears connected to this are represented by the seven of cups, which tells me that quite a few attempts to find this man have ended in false leads. The reading ends in the six of cups, which is a card of memories, often childhood memories. This gives us a clue about "Lyle's" state of mind when he died, and I also think he may have visited this part of the country at one point when he was a child, and that he had sentimental reasons for choosing Greys Harbor.

Lisa Irwin Update

It's been awhile since I have updated my readings about Lisa Irwin, the Kansas City ten month old who disappeared either very late on October 3, 2011, or very early the following day. I went ahead and found a picture of her, but one thing to keep in mind is that children at that age change quickly as they grow, and if Lisa Irwin is still alive, she does not look like she does in this picture anymore.

My question for the Tarot is "why hasn't Lisa Irwin been found?" The first three cards, representing the past, are the King of Swords, the Knight of Cups, reversed, and the Queen of Pentacles, reversed. These are three adults, and it surprises me that no one has talked yet. The King of Swords is an adult male involved in law in some way or another, and the Knight of Cups reversed is a young man, less mature than the King, who is completely dishonest. Upright, he is a messenger who tells the truth, but reversed, this card almost always tells us that a liar is in the picture. Next, we have the Queen of Pentacles, reversed, and she is an emotional, irrational, selfish, not-so-nice, evil woman. These are the people who have helped cover this baby's whereabouts. The King here may not have helped on purpose, but he was either used by the two other individuals, or he accidently made the wrong choice about how to go about solving this case. I think he is a policeman.

The next three cards represent the present, and they are the Emporer, the Queen of Wands, and the six of swords, reversed. This is interesting: the Emporer is the card that tells of the "father" presence or the "father" influence, and I was, and still am, convinced that Lisa's father is the reversed Knight in the above paragraph. So who is this Emporer? Could the reversed Knight be ready to go straight on us, and start cooperating with law enforcement? It might be on the table, somehow. The Queen of Wands is a woman who somehow has an influence here, and she was not a part of the past, but is new on the scene, and new to the case. She is very determined to solve this case. Now; the next card bothers me, but is not a surprise; the six of swords reversed. Upright, this is a card of travel. Reversed, it means the opposite, which also means that Lisa has been in the same place for a very long time.

For the future, we have the three of cups, reversed, the four of swords, and Strength. The three of cups tells of a situation involving too much substance abuse, too much celebrating....excesses in general. So somehow, drinking and substance abuse continue to be an issue in keeping Lisa hidden vs. finding her. The next card is the four of swords, which is a card of rest, or dormancy. I think the message here is that the case has stalled for now, and is "dormant". Strength is the last card, and one of it's literal meanings has to do with trumping "carnal" inclinations, such as substance abuse. Something else that came to me is the picture on that card: a woman petting a tamed lion. I think it is possible that Lisa may be found one day by someone walking a dog, or chasing down a pet cat! Completely by accident!

My last question was "where is Lisa?", and I drew the Lovers, reversed. This card has to do with couples, choices, and water is also a symbol on this card. I think it is directing us to look at all three of those things. A couple who made a terrible choice, and water as part of the picture, somehow.

Timmothy Pitzen Update

I had a request for an update for missing Timmothy Pitzen, who went missing in May of last year, after an impromtu road trip with his mother, who was later found deceased in a hotel room in Illinois. I will do an update, and focus on where Timmothy might be now.

In the past, we have the nine of cups reversed. This speaks of a plan that somehow went wrong. We are also given Judgement, reversed, which reminds us that there was no renewal in the past.....Timmothy was not found. The Knight of Wands is also there. His relationship to Timmothy and the situation are not clear, but he is, nonetheless, part of the picture. This would be a young, impulsive man, under the age of fortyfive.

In the present, we have the four of wands, reversed, which bears a similar message of imperfect plans, but making the best of things. As a physical place, this card would tell me of places one would use bridges to get to, is there a place near where Timmothy and his mother were last seen that might have a "four" in it's name, such as "Fourstate", "Four Corners", "Four Rivers", ect.? Or "Four Bridges"  Next, is the three of pentacles, which is a card of doing a job for wages, or of skill and craftsmanship. Following this, we have the Hermit, reversed. It appears that someone has actually put some work and effort into keeping investigators from searching in the right places to find Timmothy.

The King of Pentacles is in the future. This is an older man, who may have dark brown hair and dark eyes. He is also somehow involved. He has resources, and he may live in an agricultural area. With his involvement, things concerning Timmothy suddeny become active again, which we see with the four of swords, reversed. Upright, the four of swords speaks to dormancy, reversed, it tells of renewed activity. The final card is the six of swords, which is a card of travel. So travel will be involved. The four of swords also speaks to social unrest, and I honestly believe that the message here is that this little boy will not be found as long as no one is actively searching. Social unrest; that is the element that is needed in order to revive the search before it is too late to find him, and keeping the matter dormant is how the perpetrator has kept this child missing for over a year.

Holly Bobo

Someone asked me for a reading about Holly Bobo, who disappeared from Tennessee in April of 2011. She was reportedly last seen in some woods, near her home. I will ask what happened, and where she now.

This reading starts with the Fool, a card of great opportunity and sometimes rash risk taking, crossed by the seven of wands, a card of guarding one's possesions or home, or of keeping what one has won. So we have opportunity and possession as factors. The ten of pentacles, reversed, is at the base of this as a possible cause for Holly's disappearance, so we should look for someone who had lost an inheritance or a large amount of unearned, yet expected money over a situation involving Holly. The Knight of Cups is in the past; he is a young adult male, possibly fair complected and blond, who also plays a role in this, somehow. As he is upright, I am going to assume that he is kindly disposed toward Holly and means her no harm. As the best possible outcome, we have the Devil, reversed, which means that the very best thing for Holly is to get free. This is a hopeful may be telling us that it is POSSIBLE that she may yet come back. As something that will happen, or is happeneing now, we have the Hermit, reversed, which means that either no real searching is taking place right now, or that anyone who is searching for Holly is searching in the wrong place.

The Queen of Wands, reversed, is a jealous adult female who does not want Holly found. Her relationship to Holly and involvement in Holly's life is not clear. The five of cups, reversed, is in the enivronment, which is another message that Holly might come back. One of the archaic meanings of this card when reversed is: return of an old friend. A hope and an expectation is the eight of pentacles, which is the card of the apprentice. Holly was training to be a nurse, perhaps this is what Holly still intends to do. It may also tell us to look among Holly's classmates or workmates for clues. The final oitcome is the Lovers. Sometimes, this card can mean an important choice must be made, but here, I think that along with that, the choice was about romance.

Workmates, classmates, lovers. I will hope for the best.

What happened to Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook?

A week ago, an eight year old girl and an eleven year old girl, Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook, disappeared in Iowa. Their bicycles were found last Friday afternoon beside Lake Meyer, but no sign of the girls. Their missing persons poster is to the left, along with a phone number for anyone with information to call. Here's the reading: the beginning is the two of swords, crossed by the Fool. This looks like a planned event that needed an opportunity in order to happen. It also tells of a temporary truce in a family disagreement. Beneath this, we have the King of Swords. This is often law enforcement or a lawyer or a judge, yet here we have him cast as someone who was ALREADY INVOLVED with this family. So it is aready beginning to look like the disappearance had something to do with a pending legal decision. Drifting into the past, yet knowing something about the present, we also have the reversed Page Of Swords. This is a youngish character, who is very likely still a child, who knew something that should have been told to authorities but did not do so when the time was right. The chariot appears as the best thing that can happen here. This is not only a card of vehicles and ways to go places, but it is a card of balence. The charioteer must balence the forces of two horses that want to go two different directions if any progress is to be made. The Queen of Wands is someone who will come into the future of this investigation. She is a woman with a lot of energy and a creative thinker. She may have blond or red hair, and is impulsive. She is also determined to find Elizabeth and Lyric.

Temperance comes up as an immediate problem for the surrounding issues. When this card comes up as a "problem", it usually indicates drug abuse or alcohol abuse. Sometimes, it means lack of balence, or that componants of the situation are very delicately balenced. The tower comes up to describe the environment of the girls. From this, I can extrapolate that whoever was responsible for these girls knew better than to expose them to whoever or whatever made them disappear. The Tower tells of ruin after refusing to make appropriate changes. It is associated with imprisonment, legal losses, and bad karma. As a location, it would indicate a building in desperate need of repair, ruined by the elements. The six of wands is hoped for good news. While this may yet be possible, the ace of pentacles reversed has the final say, and this is about money. Judging from this reading, it looks as if there were corrupt people involved with this family, and one or both girls either knew something or saw something that made someone else nervous about matters judicial, and these two girls became casualties. Lets hope they are found very soon.

Afterthought: Look for someone who had or has a good chance of going to jail without moving these two girls out of the way.

What Really Happened To Caylee Anthony?

Someone asked me to do a reading about Caylee Anthony, specifically, what REALLY happened to really looks as though Caylee Anthony's "mother" got away with murder, but I will ask the cards.

The reading starts with the two of wands, a card of opportunity and plans, crossed by the five of pentacles, a card that tells of lack of resources and poverty. Apparently, little Caylee was a victim of the balence between opportunity, resources, and responsibility. Beneath this, we have the seven of cups, which means illusions and visions of granduer. Someone in the situation clearly could not see reality for what it is. A sad event that took place is the ten of swords, and I think this was Caylee's death. Tens are completion, and the ten of swords is the exit of something that often can no longer be endured. Also, swords relate to air, and I think lack of oxygen was either a cause of a contibuter to Caylee's death. In a possible future for the person left behind, or in this case, a hope connected to one of the "visions of granduer" augered by the seven of cups, we have the Lovers, reversed. One of the reasons for this violence and neglect of a child was the hope of finding new love. It did not work out as planned, however. The next thing that happened was the Tower, which is the "day of reckning". While the prosecution in Casey Anthony's case did not put together a solid case and win, Casey did spend a certain amount of time behind bars, and this card of speaks of imprisonment.

One serious problem with "the perpetrator's" personality was the lack of any insight relating to the sacrifices involved in bringing up children. This is illustrated by the Hanged Man, reversed, in the place of self. The Hanged Man is a card of sacrifice for the greater good, and sometimes of learning and's Odin, gathering the Runes from streams of collective conscience, in order to teach generations of people. Reversed, it tells us that the person who should have been caring for Caylee was not even remotely interested in the task of caring for a child. In the place of home environment and relationships with others involved, we get the five of swords, reversed. There was a quality of anger and revenge in the situation, as well. The Knight of Cups, reversed, was in this person's hopes. He is not much better than the "perpetrator". Just another lying, deceptive, good-for-nothing single male. Upright, this Knight is usually a kind, sensitive young man, but reversed, he is not honest. As a final outcome, we have the seven of wands, reversed. This, I believe, refers to the choice to leave Caylee in a place where she was not carefully guarded, and her remains could be so easily found. Upside right, this card would tell us that we are on private property, and can only go inside if invited, but reversed, nothing is safeguarded, and so it was with little Caylee. Looking at the two of wands, I think Casey may have had help, male help, is finding a place to hide little, Caylee, as well.
