Question: What circumstances caused Henry’s disappearance?
7 of Wands (r) – Chariot – Hanged Man
9 of Cups – Wheel (r) – Queen of Pentacles
Card pulled for Queen of Pentacles: Page of Pentacles
Card pulled for Page of Pentacles: Knight of Wands (r)
Card pulled for Knight of Wands (r): 7 of Pentacles
Ace of Pentacles – Ace of Wands – 7 of Cups (r)
The first row of cards appears to show Henry as being in a position or situation where he felt completely overwhelmed and exhausted. The Chariot is showing him as having an underlying desire to overcome his problems, or the obstacles preventing him from reaching his goals, but its positioning between the Seven of Wands reversed and the Hanged Man suggest that there were some difficulties beyond his control.
The Hanged Man represents a feeling of being trapped and the need to let go of problems or circumstances that have held a person back. The problem with this card is that it points to self-limiting thoughts or behaviors that prevent a person from moving on. Henry might have felt that aspects of his life were in limbo, and he may have felt uncertain about what to do in the immediate future.
The second row shows that Henry had a change in luck that was caused by outside forces. The Nine of Cups shows him as having transitioned, at some point, from a place that was positive and hopeful to one that became very difficult. The inspiration for this change is the person represented by the Queen of Pentacles card. The energy surrounding this person is female and adult. The Page of Pentacles is either a child associated with the Queen, or it was a message that Henry received from this person. When I say message, I mean that it could represent a communication or relaying of information between them that took place. If the Page represents some type of news or message, then it would have likely come across as positive and pertained to financial, career, or material matters. It can also refer to learning opportunities.
The news might have also been about the Knight of Wands reversed. This can represent a younger and masculine energy. The person represented by this card would be someone who can be arrogant, overly confident, and prone to losing their temper easily. The Seven of Pentacles reversed, pulled in connection with the Knight, shows someone who makes poor choices – particularly ones relating to money or material matters – and someone who comes across as unwilling to put in the effort needed to succeed.
The two Aces, referred to in the third row of the reading, refer to new beginnings. The Ace of Pentacles may point to a job offer, a desire for a career change, or some type of financial opportunity that was presented. The Ace of Wands is also a new beginnings card that indicates that something new or exciting was impending – such as the birth of a child, plans to travel, or something else of significance.
The Seven of Cups reversed could indicate that Henry felt overwhelmed by all of these changes and was not sure of the best way to proceed.
Question: Who or what caused Henry’s disappearance?
2 of Pentacles (r) – The Star (r) – Death
10 of Swords (r) – 8 of Swords (r) – 10 of Pentacles (r)
3 of Cups (r) – Knight of Swords – 10 of Wands
Card pulled for Knight of Swords: 10 of Cups
There is an abundance of 10s in this reading, which signifies that events surrounding this person and situation have come full circle. Since I don’t know if Henry disappeared on his own, or if someone else caused his disappearance directly, then I have to look at the reading from at least two perspectives: one in which Henry’s actions caused his own disappearance – either intentionally or unintentionally – and one where one or more third parties is involved.
The first row points to financial problems and the person feeling a sense of hopelessness about their situation. The person knew they needed to make changes in their life, but they were resisting or avoiding making them.
The second row makes me think this person has felt trapped by something that happened in their past. They are or were trying to learn important lessons from past experiences, but there was something holding them back. The Ten of Pentacles reversed could point to fighting that was going on between this person and one or more people around them (probably family – through blood or marriage). There seems to be a lot of conflict surrounding money.
This person may have had some kind of situation going on that involved a romantic partner or one or more close friends. The Three of Cups can suggest there was possibly a break-up, infidelity, or a situation that left this person feeling as though they were on their own. The Knight of Swords could represent someone involved in the conflict that tends to stir things up with their words and their unwillingness to just sit back and watch events unfold. I can also suggest there is imminent change on the horizon.
Now an interesting thing about the Knight of Swords is that it is paired with the Ten of Cups. Maybe this person had a good home life, or what felt like a good relationship, that changed dramatically. The Ten of Wands shows the person this reading refers to as feeling overburdened by everything that happened. There is just this sense, with whoever this refers to, that they were (or are) under a lot of stress and everything feels like a struggle right now.
Question: What do we need to know about Henry’s disappearance?
The Veil – Strange Valentine
The Veil refers to the boundary separated those that are living and those that have died. It indicates that information can be, or is being, communicated through these channels. If a person close to this situation feels that they are receiving these kinds of messages, it is worthwhile to listen to them as someone is probably trying to communicate.
Strange Valentine indicates that around the time of his disappearance, someone may have entered Henry’s life. This person is someone who is very different from Henry in many distinct ways.
Question: What do we need to know about the person or people directly involved?
Midnight – Fairy of the Highlands
Midnight is another card that can indicate there are messages coming from beyond, so to speak. However, it also points to the fact that people have both darkness and light in them.
Fairy of the Highlands shows that whoever was directly involved has felt it is time to speak or act upon their truth. They may have felt people were taking advantage of them or oppressing them in some manner.
Question: What is Henry’s current status?
The card can be a positive or negative type of omen, depending on the circumstances surrounding it. In a positive light, it tells a person they need to claim their full potential. In a negative light, it warns against continuing to go down a particular path.
