Ashley Freeman And Laura Bible

 
Ashley Freeman and Laura Bible allegedly spent a night, in December of 1999, in a trailer that burned down, but only the bodies of Ashley's parents were found, not the two girls, who were sixteen at the time of the fire. Since then, no one has been able to locate them, despite the occasional rumor.
 
For the basis, we have the eight of pentacles, reversed, crossed by the three of pentacles. This is a clear message of lack of ability in a trade or line of employment. But what could that possibly have to do with the disappearance of two teenage girls? As a bit of background and as a possible underlying reason for the whole situation, fire and all, we have the Tower, reversed. The tower usually involves karma and involuntary repayment of karmic debt, but as the card falls reversed, I will say that this time, it was man-made; more like vengeance than anything cosmically deserved by anyone here. This is followed by the two of cups, the only card representing Ashley and Laura. They, somehow, were unintended "victims". The five of wands follows this, and this card usually describes games and runaround, the type of "beating around the bush" one gets from someone who has no intentions of honesty. And......honesty was somehow lacking after this fire. This is followed by the five of swords, which is deliberately applied violence and revenge. Also lies and cover-up. Force was the only way for someone to win a dispute, and that is what this whole situation was all about.
 
The staff contains four court cards, which makes this a very unusual reading. These are four different people who were involved in this matter. In the place of fears, we have the Knight of Swords. Often, he is a violent person, or a violent event; but in this case, he is a person. Court cards in the suit of swords are often law enforcement, and this man was in his thirties or early forties in 1999. The reports filed about this fire and the victims is represented by the King of Cups, reversed. This king is usually someone who lies when he falls reversed, and he has a lot of authority. He relates his spin on this matter directly to any investigators and to the public. Getting even worse, we have the Knight of Cups next. He is also dishonest when reversed, and he is in the place of hopes and fears, which means that while he is somewhat younger than the King of Cups, he successfully wielded a certain amount of fear over the king, and the king spun this story the way the knight wanted it spun. The final card is the King of Swords, who is often law enforcement, or a lawyer or judge. He is upside right, but he is at odds with the King of Cups about the investigation of the fire. For reasons that are not known, he has gone along with what the other men wished.
 
Grrrr....from all appearances, and according to this reading, it looks as if the fire was deliberate, and aimed at the two adults in the house, not the girls. In the scenario given by the reading, the Ashley and Laura were unintended victims of the fire. There is no card here that tells me that they escaped; and I do not believe they ever got out alive. It looks as if someone is covering the fact that they were in the house when the house burned down. Perhaps the investigation should be reopened.

Randy Leach

 
Randy Leach, seventeen, was last seen in Northeast Kansas, at a party, at 2:30 AM on April 16, 1988. Reportedly, he had been drinking at the party, but that still does not explain his disappearance. I will see what the Tarot will reveal.
 
The reading starts with the four of cups, reversed, crossed by the Knight of Swords. As events leading up to this, we have the two of swords and Temperance, reversed. The four of cups reversed tells us of a new, but fleeting interest Randy had in someone he met that night. This is crossed by the Knight of Swords, and I do not like to see this, because this card often represents a violent event or a violent man. The two of wands is a card of partnership, and sometimes of joint ownership of properties and businesses. It's possible that it relates to the owners of the home where the party was held. Temperance reversed confirms that alcohol was involved, unfortunately.
 
The next two cards are court cards, and they are the King of Wands, reversed, and the Queen of Wands, also reversed. This is a couple who were not kindly disposed toward Randy that night. When the King of Wands falls reversed, we often find that he stated negative intentions prior to acting on them. The Tower follows, in the place of fears. This is a card of ruin, and as it shows up as a fear, Randy was aware of danger; for this reason I think we can dispense with any notion that he ran away from home willingly. He knew that he had suddenly found himself in a very vulnerable position with these two people. In the place of environment, we have the Page of Pentacles, reversed. When upright, this card often represents a message of some sort, and I think it's appearance upside down tells us that someone is still trying to make sure that no message, or tip, concerning Randy's whereabouts is ever conveyed. As a direction, pentacles would point north, and their element is earth, yet this card is reversed. I think Randy is still somewhere very close to where he was last seen. Also, material resources, and the preservation of same, are somehow connected to keeping the secret. Next, we find the eight of pentacles, which is the card of employment and learning skills. This is a hope that is connected to the secrecy represented by the reversed Page of Pentacles; somehow, someone was protecting his or her employment and livelihood. The reading ends with the eight of wands; staffs flying through the air, over an open field. This describes something quite accidental that leads to a clue that helps to find this young man. I wish the reading could have been more positive.

How Can The Skelton Boys Be Found?

 
Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner Skelton were last seen with their father before Thanksgiving of 2010. A reading I did for them earlier told us in no uncertain terms that deceit was a factor, and the father has not cooperated in locating them. Someone recently asked me if I would update the reading, since we just passed the third anniversary of their disappearance.
 
The best question I could think of is pretty simple: how can these boys be found? The first two cards we get are the Devil, reversed, crossed by the three of cups. This speaks of a violent or untimely end to something that was not violent or malicious. At the base is the six of swords, reversed. As this card indicates travel in it's upright position, it tells us, as it has fallen reversed here, that the boys never got terribly far from their father's home, and that there has not been a lot of movement in the case in a long time. This is followed by the Knight of pentacles, reversed. He is a man who is inclined, when reversed, to be unproductive and unreliable. He also deliberately slows things down; he is purposefully impeding this investigation. Earth is the element of pentacles, and that should not be overlooked either. Earth plays a role.
 
The five of wands, reversed, comes up next, in the place of possibilities. When this card falls reversed, I always expect to see contradictions and dishonesty, and this fits right in with the reversed Knight of Pentacles. His contributions to this have been, up to this point, games. Next, we have the seven of swords, reversed. Upright, this card is a card of wrongful taking, and inability to complete the wrongful taking, or taking on a task that is not fitted to the taker, and cannot be completed for that reason. Reversed, it means refers to good directions or good legal counsel. As we find it in the place of things that will come, in the future, we can be hopeful that someone will find better information soon.
 
In the place of fears, we find the Wheel of Fortune. Whoever took the boys feels quite lucky at having gotton away with it, so far. Environment is represented by the Lovers, reversed. This is a strange card for an environment of three missing boys; but I think it has more to do with the perpetrator that it does with them. The card seems to be describing a location connected to lovers' quarrels and disputes within a relationship important to the perpetrator. Perhaps a place that was used to just sit and think, after a serious argument. The King of Swords appears in the place of hopes, and as court cards in the suit of swords are often law enforcement, lawyers, or judges, I believe this is a member of law enforcement trying to find the boys. The reading ends with the Hierophant, reversed. The boys will be found by using unconventional methods, or by taking an unconventional tip or idea seriously.

Update For Daniel James O'Keeffe

Daniel James O'Keeffe is still missing, and someone asked for some pinpointed information, and I will do my best. The question had to do with where O'Keeffe is located, and when he will be found.

The first three cards, the past, are the Knight of Pentacles, reversed, the Queen of Pentacles, reversed, and the three of swords, also reversed. When the Knight of Pentacles falls reversed, he often describes carelessness or laziness on the part of a young man. This knight is also accompanied by the queen of the same suit, also reversed. When the Queen of Pentacles falls reversed, we often see a woman whose duties are neglected and who is overly dependent on others for resources. These two are a couple. Unfortunately, one of them has compromised the other, as indicated by the next card, which is the three of swords, reversed.

For the present, we have the nine of swords, reversed; Death, and the eight of swords, reversed. The nine of swords reversed tells always of worry, but sometimes of false imprisonment and of being literally trapped in a situation or a location. Death generally does not refer to physical death, but to a major change, which would be happening either now or very soon. Sometimes, it does refer to death; but that is only a message that is given when all parties are able use the information for growth and understanding. The eight of swords follows this, and this card is also reversed. Upright, it also refers to a state of being trapped, somehow; reversed, it means quite the opposite. These three cards tell a story segment of having been trapped in a place or in a situation, but a very major change turning the situation around. I will keep my fingers crossed that it is for the positive.

The future gives us the five of swords, reversed, which is vengeance and possibly, defeat of some kind. Who wanted revenge on Daniel? The King of Pentacles also figures here, and since he is upside right, I will assume he means Daniel well. He is, for good or for ill, involved in finding Daniel, but Daniel is not entirely keen on this, for reasons that are not entirely clear. The last card here is the six of pentacles, reversed, which indicates money owed somewhere. This may be how the King of Pentacles figures; Daniel....or James, if he is called James, needs to be aware that he is safe if he comes home.

It is hard to lay a time estimate on events described in reading; what I call soon may be what others call distant. What the Tarot calls soon may be centuries from what we call soon, but the three cards for the "present" in this reading showed some changes either now, or very "soon", (there's that word, again!) so I would not give up on this case.

Where Is Kiplyn Davis?

 
Kiplyn Davis disappeared from Spanish Fork High School in Spanish Fork, Utah, on May 3, 1995. Three people known to be involved in this case have been prosecuted for perjury, and one for manslaughter, but she has never been found, and the whole story of her disappearance has never been completely put together. The police initially did not even take a report about her, telling her parents that she "must" have run away from home. Kiplyn's parents took the initiative to try to find her, and to pass out as many flyers bearing her picture as they could. This is one of them, above.

The question I have asked is "where?" In answer, the reading begins with the High Priestess, representing things hidden, crossed by the King of Cups, whose appearance here is reversed. There is an adult male, who was likely an adult in 1995, when Kiplyn disappeared, helping to keep her whereabouts hidden. Beneath this, we get the World, telling of opportunities connected to very act of hiding Kiplyn. Apparently, during the time no one suspected those who were eventually questioned, there was ample opportunity to hide Kiplyn, which was done. This is followed by the Star, and I think it refers to the directional course used by the perpetrators. Natural landmarks were used to find an initial place, and, as indicated by the six of wands, in a possible outcome, someone actually has knowledge of it. A problem in testifying is the two of swords, which is a stalemate, caused, in this case, by one party with nothing to lose by cooperating, and another party managing to discourage the testimony, anyway. Swords often refer to written or spoken words.

The beginning of the staff shows us the seven of swords in the place of fears. This was fear and inability to "play" innocent; also, I think it is telling us that Kiplyn was moved. The seven of pentacles represents the current environment......field, garden, place that was tilled or dug. Also, something was bartered, here. The next card, in the place of hopes, is Death, reversed. Someone involved is hoping that things will stay as they are. The last card is the nine of pentacles, which is financial independence; but as surroundings or a physical location, it would indicate a property with a garden, possibly with one person's name on the deed.

It would seem that looking for something that was planted, built, or dug on private property at around the time this happened would probably be a good place to start looking. The reversed King of Cups will do all he can to put a stop to any searches.

Will Sierra Lamar's Case Ever Be Resolved?

Sierra Lamar went missing in March of 2012, and it has been almost two years with no answers. A suspect has been charged, but not tried. His court dates continue to get continued. So will her case ever be solved?


Three cards here indicate the search and investigation in the past: the ace of cups, the Hierophant, and the Queen of Cups. Water has always come up in readings I have done in the past, connected to this case, and continues to do so. The element of the suit of cups is water, and the ace is often a river. The Hierophant is tradition, and traditional search methods have been used, albeit unsuccessfully. The justice system is another traditional "system" that is being relied upon, even though the defendant has not responded in the manner expected by investigators and the prosecution. There is also a woman connected to the investigation, showing up in this reading as the Queen of Cups. She has intuitively put together quite a few pieces of the puzzle, already. She would like to find Sierra before insisting upon moving forward in court.

The three cards I pulled for the present are the nine of pentacles, the King of Wands, and the Magician. One of the meanings of the nine of pentacles is completion of a project, and this meaning seems to fit my question about resolution to the case better than any other possible meanings this card has, even though the case has not been solved. The King of Wands is someone male who is also connected to the investigation, and has been since the beginning. He gets some information that comes as a surprise, follows up on it, and turns to the Magician, who is an expert at gathering and analyzing evidence. At this point, I should state the obvious; these cards definitely want to discuss the resolution of finding Sierra and bringing closure to those who love her, rather than prosecution. As the Magician is upside right, I think someone may actually bring him some actual evidence to work with.

The future shows us the six of cups, the High Priestess, and the four of swords, reversed. The six of cups is looking back at the past. Places that have been searched, places the defendant and Sierra have both visited, and; once again, water. A garden with water, a place that somehow welcomes children...yet looks to the pasts of the individuals involved in the case. The High Priestess also deals with water, but in a different way.....she is the subconscious. She also represents things that are hidden. As a physical location, she could also represent a church dedicated to a female saint. The four of swords reversed is renewed activity, successful renewed activity, but with a bit of social unrest. I don't think that finding Sierra, all of the evidence, and a successful prosecution is going to lay this case to rest peacefully. There will be a lot of outcry.

All of the water symbolism points us in a slightly westward direction, and other symbols that jump out at me from the cards are a lake, a river, a garden, a hand, and children playing...ala the six of cups. As unbelievable as it seems, I do see this case resolved one day, sooner than anyone thinks.

Richard Cody Haynes

 
What could possibly have happened to Cody Haynes, who disappeared in September of 2004? He was eleven when he went missing, and now he would be twenty. The image on the far right of the poster is a computer generated image of how Cody would look as an adult.
 
This reading starts with the King of Swords crossed by the Knight of Swords. Yikes! Two males of the suit of swords! Luckily, they are both upside right, so I think they can be linked to the investigation. Law enforcement and the judicial system are often represented by court cards of the suit of swords, and it's element is air. So we know that the investigation is still open, and even if it seems like a lost cause, someone in an investigative position is still earnestly looking for Cody Haynes.
 
Beneath this is Judgement, which tells us not to give up, a conclusion will be reached. Water is also indicated on this card, as a physical location. But this is in the past, as the reason the King and Knight of Swords are looking for Cody, in the first place. The opposing forces in this matter, also drifting into the past, are represented by the High Priestess, who speaks of things that are hidden. She also deals in water, as it hides things from time to time, and on less physical levels, represents the subconscious. Another "watery" card we find, in possible conclusions for this case, is the Page of Cups. This is a message, or a tip to law enforcement, from a young person, and the message comes from the heart. The element of cups is water, once again. Something we must recognize though, is the reality represented by the eight of swords, which tells us that Cody did not reappear because he was trapped somewhere. Water is part of the imagery of the Ryder-Waite eight of swords, and taking this card at literal, face value, we would see a suggestion that Cody may be trapped in shallow water somewhere.
 
Another Page that comes up in this reading is the Page of Swords, representing the fears of the person who knows what happened to Cody, yet has not come forward. There may be a witness, or an accomplice after the fact, who is young and has the answers law enforcement seeks. The five of swords comes up as a picture of what happened to Cody. This card is a card of violence, and sometimes of revenge. This is followed by another five, the five of wands, which is in the place of the perpetrator's hopes. Someone here is hoping to get away with playing games with the investigation and those who are looking for Cody. Also, deception is the main message when these two cards appear together in a reading. The nine of pentacles concludes the reading, and this card, in a reading such as this, tells of accomplishment. I think we will find, sadly, that Cody suffered violence for no reason, and that water plays a role in keeping him hidden.
 

Update For Morgan Martin

 
Morgan Martin, Florida teen who went missing in July of 2012, is still missing. When someone asks me for an updated reading on a cold case, such as this one, I almost never know specifically what question to put to the Tarot. It's also very disappointing that these cold cases, especially ones involving children, exist in the first place. Perhaps the most important question in this case right now has to do with where Morgan Martin can be found. She was also between sixteen and twenty weeks pregnant at the time of her disappearance.
 
I simply asked the question, "Where is Morgan Martin?" The reading is already unique in that the cards all fell reversed. We begin with three cards for the past, which are, the Magician, the seven of wands, and the nine of swords. When the Magician falls reversed, he speaks of abuses in power. This is someone who either has some personal or political power in the part of Florida where Morgan lived, or has the ear of someone who does. This power was used against Morgan, and was further abused in covering up events that took place after Morgan left her home for the last time. The seven f wands, when upright, is guarded property and a guarded home; but when this card falls reversed, it is the opposite. Morgan had let her guard down completely, and that is how she became vulnerable. The nine of swords signifies imprisonment, especially false imprisonment.
 
For the present, we have the ace of cups, the Page of Cups, and Judgement. I believe we saw Judgement in an earlier reading for Morgan. The ace of cups does not bode well for the unborn child. Upright, it refers to birth and fertility, along with joy, but reversed, it tells of the opposite of those things. Likewise the Page of Cups, who is also reversed here. The reversed Page goes a step further and assures us that a deliberate deception can be revealed under the right circumstances, though, so we can be sure that Morgan's disappearance was no accident. Fear of death and disillusionment are what we are being shown by Judgement upside down, those were elements on Morgan's part.
 
What we will find in the future are the ten of swords, the three of pentacles, and the four of cups. The ten of swords is a card of violent endings, either reversed or upright. When reversed, the message is power, but short lived. Once again, we are getting hints that someone with some power played a role in this situation, but it will not last. The three of pentacles is a card of craftsmanship, yet it falls reversed; and I think it helps to explain the ten of pentacles and the Magician a little bit; it is telling us that someone who was charged with bringing events to light decided, instead, to hide clues and obscure the truth. The last card is the four of cups. When we get this card reversed, we have a sigh of relief.....someone jumping from new relationship to new relationship and from novelty to novelty.
 
For the answer to the question of "where"; I must conclude that water is a dominant geographic feature in Morgan's current surroundings. The three cards for the present gave me two cards from the suit of cups, and the element corresponding to cups is water, and Judgement is, on mundane, or everyday levels, a "watery" card in and of itself. As a physical location, it tells of traversing and rising out of water, typically a large lake or an ocean, but not travelling to new places. Reversed, it would simply tell of water as a hiding place, rather than a springboard or an agent of rebirth.

Alexis Murphy


Alexis Murphy disappeared from Northern Virginia last month. She is seventeen years old, and while her cell phone has been located, she has not. There is also a suspect in custody, in connection to her disappearance, who has been denied bond. Alexis was last seen at a gas station in Lovingston, Virginia, and after that, seems to have vanished completely. So where is she, and what happened?

We begin with the three of wands crossed by the High Priestess. The three of wands represents the gas station and the business, customers, and community. The High Priestess is mystery, and hidden matters, with a touch of feminine influence. The subconscious mind is also represented by this card, and I am convinced that a customer or patron saw Alexis there, and also saw either a person in her acquaintance, or a vehicle that is part of the scenario; yet does not realize that it was Alexis, or realize the importance of what was seen. The matter of things that are hidden appears as an obstacle, so the advice to counter that problem is obviously to keep information and contact numbers for law enforcement in prominent places at the gas station, and keep asking everyone who was in the vicinity to come forward with any detail, no matter how unimportant it might seem. There is either a reluctant witness, or a witness who does not realize that he or she is a witness, and the gas station can somehow yield more clues.

Beneath this, we have the three of pentacles. Note that we have another "three"! This is the card of the craftsman, and speaks of a man who is very good at his job. It is followed by the King of Wands, and he falls upright, so I am going to assume, for now, that he is favorably disposed toward Alexis, and trying to find her.  The card representing his best chance of doing that is the nine of pentacles, which is solitude and waiting for counsel before acting. Security, and protecting one's assets is an obstacle in effort to find Alexis.  This card could also represent a woman, who does not want to step away from her secure "comfort zone" in order to come forward with something she has seen. What follows, as something that will happen soon, is the seven of cups. This represents scattered forces as a result of invalid choices and offerings, and energies wasted on things that do not pan out. So far, a large amount of this King's energy has been wasted.

The five of pentacles, reversed, is the first card on the staff. This is someone's fear, and it is a fear of something, or someone, being returned. Next, we have the influence of a person as the environment of this matter: the Knight of Pentacles, reversed. When reversed, this knight is lazy, dishonest about financial matters, and careless and sloppy. He, too, has a connection to the three of pentacles, only he is not very good at his job. He is also a bit of a fraud. The card describing this Knight's hopes and favorite passion is Strength, reversed, which is abuse of power, and sometimes physical abuse. The last card is the Chariot, reversed, which tells us that the wills of two individuals are at odds right now about which direction to take evidence. The opposite opinions and energy forces cannot work together to move the chariot, so it stands still. On mundane levels, this card sometimes refers to vehicles which have broken down. Another possibility connected to this card is message that no one traveled very far. This is one more thing that takes us back to the gas station for clues.

The presence of two cards with values of three lead me to believe that Alexis is not far from the last place she was known to have been seen........about three miles. The pentacles point north, but the cups point west. The High Priestess also has a connection to water, as does the seven of cups. Water somehow aided the hiding of evidence, and is still obscuring the Truth. I hate to see cards like Strength, reversed, in connection to persons directly involved.....in this case, the reversed Knight of Pentacles. This tells me that Alexis somehow ended up in the company of someone who either abuses his own strength, or some type of power he either has over others, or just had over her.

Hopefully, Alexis will be found soon.

How Can The Ayla Raynolds Case Be Solved?

 
Ayla Reynolds has been missing for over a year and a half. The case appears to be going cold. I have had a couple of requests for updates, so here is the question I put to the Tarot: how can this case be solved?
 
What an unusual reading! Every, single card came up reversed! And the reading was very heavy on cards from the suit of pentacles! Okay, the first three cards, representing the past, are the eight of pentacles, the Page of Pentacles, and the ten of pentacles. The eight of pentacles is the card of the apprentice, and represents hard work in order to learn a trade. Since the card is reversed, I think it is safe to presume that someone who was NOT interested in working or leaning a trade is involved, here. It's distinctly possible that someone key to the situation had recently become unemployed. The Page of Pentacles is a similar message, only indicates a person, rather than a situation. This could be a child, however. The last card to tell us of the past is the ten of pentacles, and when this card appears reversed, it tells of lost inheritances and lost investments. Somehow, the situation of lost financial opportunities played a key role in this little girl's disappearance.
 
Moving into the present, the theme of lost money continue, with the ace of pentacles. A grant or a lump sum payment that had been expected, or had been gained illicitly, either didn't materialize, or didn't last long enough. We also have the three of pentacles, indicating a person who is not skilled at the labor for which he or she is paid. It also comes up reversed to describe unemployment. The third card for the present is the nine of swords, which tells us of suspicion and possible impending imprisonment.
 
The seven of swords is in the future, and when this card falls reversed, it's message is good advice, and reliable instructions, so I think it is safe to assume that someone has a good attorney; hopefully, it is not only any suspects, but the prosecution and other interested parties! This is followed by the Devil, and when we see him reversed, he warns of indecision, but also of starting over, this time with a clearer picture of what is going on. What was trapped may suddenly be untrapped. The Hermit is here, also reversed. He is a warning about moving too quickly, and without having found all there is to find. Every single person who was associated with the inhabitants of Ayla's father's home needs to be interviewed or re-interviewed. Search warrants need to be obtained for each and every property which was visited by any of them during the time period of Ayla's disappearance. I still feel that more evidence can be found on private property. I wish the reading was more positive.

Toni Heartsong

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

Lorrin Whitehead

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

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

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

Kathryn Adam

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

Dylan Redwine Found




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

Has Kyron Horman's Trail Gone Completely Cold?

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

How Can Timothy Pitzen Be Found?

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

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

Hugues De La Plaza

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

Update For Kate Phillips

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

Update For Sierra Lamar

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

Two Sad Updates

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

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

Robin Pope

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

Kansas Jane Doe

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

Sabrina Aisenberg


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

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

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

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

Tirell Ocobock Murder

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

Richard "Cody" Haynes


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

Why Is The Skylar Neese Case Stalled?

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