Disclaimer: Tarot readings should not be taken as absolute claims that something did or did not happen. I only report the meaning of the cards, their relationships and the meaning in the context of those relationships, as well as intuitions I have based entirely on the cards presented in the reading. Tarot reading is an art and not a science.
Lina Sadar Khil reportedly disappeared from a playground on December 20th of 2021. She is described as being 3 years old at the time she went missing. The playground was at the apartment complex where her family lives.
Question: Who or what caused Lina’s disappearance?
5 of Wands – 2 of Pentacles (reversed) – Hermit (reversed)
Judgement – Knight of Pentacles (reversed) – Death
Card pulled for the Knight of Pentacles (r): 9 of Swords (reversed)
7 of Cups (reversed) – Justice – 2 of Swords
In response to the question about who or what caused Lina’s disappearance, the Five of Wands is showing me a person who experiences a lot of conflict in their life – stemming from multiple sources. They might tend to act territorial or unnecessarily defensive.
The person is depicted as struggling with material and/or financial matters. This might be someone who makes poor financial choices or is not good with managing money. If so, this is a major source of stress for this person.
The Hermit reversed shows a person who comes across as anti-social and withdrawn. They might be viewed as an outsider, generally speaking, and are perceived as reclusive. The person might be prone to experiencing paranoia or communicating those types of thoughts or concerns.
Judgement is a card that I see come up in situations where a person, or people, are fated – for lack of a better word – to experience a reckoning. In some cases, like Ryan Rogers’, it points to a person who will get caught for whatever role they played in a person’s disappearance (or death, as the case was for Ryan).
The Knight of Pentacles reversed is showing someone with a younger male type of energy. The person may not be a young adult, but if they are older then they have the energy or mentality of someone who is on the younger side of adulthood. This is a person who can be irresponsible, focused on material matters, and someone who exhibits a sense of general apathy. I pulled the Nine of Swords reversed, in connection with this person, and it may represent someone who is experiencing shame or is on the verge of a mental breakdown. Sometimes it depicts a person who is seeking health or guidance in relation to these issues.
Death usually represents a major change or transformation that has occurred. Sometimes it is for the better and sometimes not. It can at times represent an actual death, but that is not its typical purpose for appearing in a reading. It might point to major upheavals or occurrences that have taken place in this individual’s life that could explain what has happened, or at least give some idea of a motive.
The Seven of Cups reversed suggests this person might now be facing a sobering reality in terms of realizing they are trapped by their actions or circumstances. It is often a card showing someone who has made poor choices and they are avoiding the inevitable, as well as living in denial about the severity of their situation – or things they have done.
Justice suggests that the legal aspects of this situation will work out as they should – which also implies that if the person this reading is describing harmed Lina, or is truly responsible for her disappearance in some way, then they will ultimately be held accountable for it. It’s a card pertaining to karma and potential consequences associated with one’s choices or behaviors.
The Two of Swords shows that this person is in a kind of denial about their reality and/or situation. However, they are also aware that their choices are limited. The card might also point to other people failing to see this situation for what it is – or this person. There is a general sense of denial or clouded perspective pertaining to what happened to Lina, but I don’t know where that is stemming from or why it is occurring.
The reading is odd in that it does clearly outline a person that is involved in some way, shape, or form. It is not outright saying that this person caused her harm either. But it is suggesting that if someone acted in the wrong regarding Lina, there will be consequences for it. They will be held to account – if that’s the case.
Question: What circumstances caused Lina’s disappearance?
The World – The Emperor (reversed) – 7 of Wands (reversed)
7 of Pentacles (reversed) – 8 of Wands – 3 of Cups
2 of Wands (reversed) – Ace of Pentacles – 10 of Cups
In reference to the question about what circumstances caused Lina’s disappearance, the reading is beginning with the World. This is a card showing something that has come or will come full circle. It can represent the completion of a cycle – whether that pertains to a situation or someone’s life. I have to point out that I have gotten this card sometimes in the past for cases where the person was murdered. I’m not saying it absolutely represents that here, but it’s possible that is what this card is communicating.
The Emperor reversed is showing someone who acts as a fatherly type of figure, but likely abuses their sense of authority – someone who is controlling and rigid in their ways. This might have been a situation where someone saw Lina on her own and convinced her to go willingly with them under the pretense that they were going to take her to her family or something along those lines. That is just one of many possible examples.
The Seven of Wands reversed is suggesting that Lina was in a situation where she did not feel she could protect herself or gain power/control over the situation. It’s a card that often depicts someone who feels there is no use in fighting their situation or circumstances and so they give in to them.
The Seven of Pentacles reversed typically represents a situation where someone has made poor financial or business decisions. It can also point to a person who starts things that they don’t really follow through with. They don’t put in enough effort and so they experience failure. I’m not sure how this pertains to this particular situation, but it is relevant and important somehow.
The Eight of Wands show circumstances that unfolded quickly. It is kind of a situation where everything is aligned in such a way that a person feels presented with an opportunity. It makes me think that whatever happened with Lina was not planned out well in advance – or at least not in such a way where anyone involved anticipated having this kind of chance or opening right when it happened. I am not sure of the best way to explain it. If it is a crime, then it is one of opportunity, though the person might have been waiting for one such opportunity to present for a while. That part is hard to know for sure.
The Three of Cups can represent a happy occasion, a reunion, or a type of gathering.
The Ace of Pentacles represents new opportunities or beginnings pertaining to money or material matters.
The Ten of Cups usually depicts happy familial or social situations. The three cards, on the last row, suggest a possible positive outcome. However, this aspect of the reading is extremely unclear to me. This last row could have a different meaning that is not quite coming to me. The last card can sometimes be a homecoming one as well. I’m hoping that somehow Lina is located, alive, and reunited with her family.
There are several aspects of both readings that are not entirely clear to me. These are just tarot readings, so it is hard to say how much of this will prove accurate. It is one of those situations where this all might make a lot more sense once the truth about what happened is revealed. If someone took her, or harmed her, or saw what happened to her…they are best off telling what they know before the information is uncovered some other way.
And no, I do not think the parents were in any way involved here.
