Michael Kitchener was 21-years-old when he disappeared. He was last seen on October 22nd of 2021, running on Highway 16, at about 5:30pm.

Question: What circumstances caused Michael’s disappearance?

Row 1
Lovers (r) – Page of Pentacles (r) – Justice
Card pulled for the Page of Pentacles (r): The Star

Row 2
8 of Cups – 3 of Swords – The Fool (r)

Row 3
4 of Pentacles (r) – Death – Strength


The Lovers reversed is the first card of the reading. It’s a card that can indicate a relationship that has gone bad, or is unhealthy, or a poor decision that someone has made. Sometimes it can mean both. It can indicate a need for accountability.

The Page of Pentacles reversed could be bad news that Michael received. The Star, in connection with the Page card, suggests that the news was bad enough to crush a hope or dream that Michael had at the time he received it.

Justice is a consequences card and one that denotes cause and effect. It is almost like whatever happened to kick off this reading with the Lovers reversed set in motion all of the events thereafter, and that they were a result.

The Eight of Cups is about walking away or letting go of something. It’s usually associated with feelings of disappointment, but not always.

The Three of Swords suggests some kind of heartbreak situation that occurred around this time. That could potentially tie in with the Lovers reversed in that a problem in a current (as of the time this all happened) or past relationship contributed to a poor decision.

The Fool reversed is reiterating that one or more poor decisions were made because it is a card of recklessness, impulsivity, and carelessness. It can also depict someone who takes unnecessary risks or is naïve about a situation or problem.

The Four of Pentacles reversed can come up if someone has experienced a financial loss or if they are trying to rid themselves of people or possessions. It can represent generosity, but there’s usually a purpose behind any giving that occurs in reference to this card.

Death is a complicated card because it can mean a major upheaval or transition in a person’s life. It can sometimes mean actual physical death. It can also refer to new beginnings or situations that seem to work out unfavorably but are really a blessing in disguise.

The last card is Strength which refers to drawing upon inner strength, having the courage of a person’s convictions, showing determination, etc. Given that Michael seems to have completely disappeared, I am not even sure what to make of this card and its placement at the end of this reading. The next reading might yield more insight though.

Question: Who or what caused Michael’s disappearance?

Row 1
8 of Swords – 9 of Swords (r) – Queen of Wands (r)
Card pulled for the Queen of Wands (r): Death

Row 2
2 of Cups (r) – Queen of Swords – The World
Card pulled for the Queen of Swords: Justice (r)

Row 3
Tower (r) – 10 of Swords – 10 of Wands


Well, before I begin to break this reading down, I want to reiterate that it’s a tarot reading, and it can absolutely be wrong, or I can misinterpret cards. I’m putting that out there because the cards in this reading are concerning and they aren’t especially hopeful.

The first card is depicting a situation where someone felt trapped, victimized, and helpless. The Nine of Swords reversed can be a coping card or a situation where someone tries to accept help.

The Queen of Wands reversed comes across as a female energy, and an adult person. Death – a card that we already saw in the last reading – is back. In this case, the Queen is the primary cause of whatever situation or upheaval the Death card is depicting. Someone with attributes consistent with the Queen of Wands in the reversed position is pushy, demanding, angry, manipulative, spiteful, etc.

The Two of Cups reversed is again pointing to there being some kind of relationship issue or trigger. Most often, it represents unhappy couples or those that are breaking up – or have already done so. It can also be a card pertaining to the loss of a friendship though. Was Michael having arguments with someone in particular? I don’t know how that situation relates to all of this exactly, but the cards seem to imply a link or connection.

The Queen of Swords is appearing as a potentially female adult person who is good with words and makes decisions according to rational thought, versus emotion. Justice was present in the first reading regarding the circumstances surrounding Michael’s disappearance, but this time it comes up in a reversed position in connection with the Queen of Swords card. In the reversed position, it suggests a lack of accountability – like whoever was involved in all this or responsible for it, whether it was intended or an accident or indirect, hasn’t been held responsible. There is a lot of dishonesty surrounding all of this and Justice reversed communicates that as well.

The World shows something that has come full circle. In a good reading, it can mean an outcome was completely successful. However, in the context of a person’s disappearance, it can take on a more ominous meaning in that I have seen it come up in readings where the person was ultimately found deceased. I’m not saying that is the case here, but if the cards are remotely accurate then it’s concerning.

The Tower reversed is like a crisis that is either averted or is looming. If someone other than Michael caused his disappearance then it could be depicting them in this place of limbo – where they haven’t been caught or held accountable, but they know it could be coming.

The Ten of Swords is a card where a person hits rock bottom. It can indicate an emotional or physical attack. It usually involves a betrayal or a sincere belief that one has occurred.

The Ten of Wands is indicating that if Michael did not disappear accidentally or by his own hand, then the person that knows what happened feels like they are carrying the entire burden of the situation. This would feel like a constant and uphill struggle to them.

This is all a really strange situation. It feels like something really bad happened here, but I don’t understand the full nature of it or what specifically caused it. I wish I had something more definitive. Some of this might make a lot more sense if I had any background information on Michael or the circumstances surrounding the time he went missing. I just don’t.

Kyle Leblanc

Disappearance: 12/31/2020
Location: Saint John in New Brunswick, Canada

Disclaimer: Tarot readings should not be taken as absolute claims or facts with regard to any person or situation. I only present the possible meanings associated with the cards, as well as intuitions and impressions that I get during the reading. All readings are suppositional and should be treated as such.


Kyle Leblanc was 31 years old when he was last seen on December 31st of 2020. He is said to have lived in Saint John in New Brunswick, Canada.

Question: Who or what caused Kyle’s disappearance?

Row 1
Queen of Cups (reversed) – The Wheel – Emperor (reversed)
Card pulled for the Queen of Cups (r): 8 of Swords (reversed)

Row 2
4 of Cups (reversed) – Hierophant – 8 of Cups

Row 3
10 of Pentacles (reversed) – Page of Wands (reversed) – Strength
Card pulled for the Page of Wands (r): Ace of Cups (reversed)


The meaning behind the cards in this first reading is going to depend on whether Kyle disappeared willingly, and on his own, or whether someone else caused it. I’ll provide both breakdowns and then my hope is the second reading will provide a clearer picture of which one is the most likely here.

The first card is the Queen of Cups reversed. The card pulled in connection with it is the Eight of Swords (reversed). Scenario one is that someone caused his disappearance. Scenario two is that he caused his own (either willingly or unintentionally). For scenario one, this combination is showing me a woman who did something to get out of what she perceived to be a bad situation in which she felt trapped. The Queen could refer to either male or female, but the energy is female, and it comes across as an adult. In its reversed position, this is a person who is behaving in ways that emphasize the more negative aspects of this court card. This is someone who – at least at the time this all happened – probably would have come across as very emotional and sensitive to the things people said to or about them, someone who was possibly depressed, and someone who was perceived as emotionally immature.

So either this person, depicted in the first card, caused Kyle’s disappearance, or Kyle disappeared on his own for reasons linking back to this person.

The Wheel shows a change of luck for the person the reading is about – at least in the beginning. If the person depicted by the card caused Kyle’s disappearance, then it is suggesting that individual benefited from it in terms of their luck or situation changing for the better (or at least, that might have been their belief at the time). By contrast, if Kyle was primarily responsible for his disappearance, through his own actions, then it was his luck that appeared to improve for a short time.

The Emperor reversed is a father-type figure. While a person in this position is not necessarily a literal father (in general), it is typically someone in a position of authority or someone who has a degree of power. The reversed position shows someone who is controlling and could embody a range of harsh traits or characteristics. If Kyle’s disappearance was caused by someone else, then it suggests some kind of second person involvement. It doesn’t have to mean they directly contributed to what happened, but minimally they would have known about it early on.

The above card makes less sense if no one else was directly involved in Kyle’s disappearance. It still has the same meaning in terms of the type of person it represents, but it then becomes far less clear what role this person played in all this.

Whoever was involved – someone other than Kyle, or Kyle himself – viewed their escape from the other person as a positive occurrence. Previously they felt trapped and hopeless, but they believed they got out of that situation. That is true in either scenario, but if it pertains to Kyle then I would expect the situation to look a little like this. Kyle had some kind of relationship (doesn’t even have to be a romantic one) with the person depicted by the Queen. It caused him to feel trapped and he wanted to escape. He did escape, or at least put distance between himself and that person, and things looked up for a time. If someone else caused his disappearance than those meaning apply to that person and not Kyle. I know this is confusing, but I haven’t gotten a card that has me leaning in a particular direction yet.

The Hierophant could have a lot of meanings. It is a card of tradition and can at times indicate a marriage. It can also be someone seeking forgiveness for something.

The Eight of Cups is a card that shows a person as walking away from something that is not beneficial to them. It can be a situation that was harmful, or it can just be a person or situation that is no longer serving them for the better.

The Ten of Pentacles shows the person experienced some kind of significant financial hardship or was possibly fighting over money. It can also indicate a divorce. I have no idea what Kyle’s relationships status was when he disappeared so if it pertains directly to him, I don’t know which meaning makes the most sense.

The Page of Wands reversed is often a card depicting delays related to either work or one’s romantic life. The Ace of Cups (reversed) can be pregnancy issues or a canceled celebration. Basically, something happened or was delayed that caused problems. An example (it is just an example) is if two people get engaged and then someone suddenly calls it off or delays it because they don’t want or dare to cancel it outright. The reversed Page is definitely adding a dynamic to this as well, which is impulsiveness and a lack of patience.

Strength is usually a positive card. It shows someone who is drawing on their inner strength to get beyond problems or obstacles. It can sometimes indicate there is someone behind the scenes who is pulling the strings with regard to something. I don’t see that meaning as often as the first one, but I’m just putting it out there.

Question: What circumstances caused Kyle’s disappearance?

Row 1
Devil (reversed) – The World (reversed) – 6 of Swords

Row 2
Page of Pentacles (reversed) – High Priestess (reversed) – 3 of Pentacles
Card pulled for the Page of Pentacles (r): King of Pentacles (reversed)
Card pulled for the King of Pentacles (r): The Fool

Row 3
Page of Swords – Ace of Wands – Temperance
Card pulled for the Page of Wands: 7 of Wands (reversed)


The first card is the Devil reversed. This can be a card indicating that someone is working toward overcoming an addiction, or a vice of some kind, and attempting to gain control over their life. It’s interesting that both readings started out with a card indicating this type of intent. Now, since I know for sure that Kyle is the direct subject of this reading, it makes sense that it would apply to him.

The World reversed shows an incomplete cycle so it’s coming across like the intent was there, and he may have taken steps toward that goal, but he did not achieve it. In this context, next to the Devil reversed, this is telling me what he wanted to accomplish and it’s saying that he did not fully achieve it.

The Six of Swords comes up when someone has moved past a major upheaval in their life – it can be a single event, or it can be ones that have been ongoing – and they are moving away from it and toward something calmer. It can denote a sense of healing from something or beginning that process at least.

It’s like Kyle was making progress toward something positive and then was stopped from progressing further. The Page of Pentacles reversed can indicate a message or person. If a person, it is usually a younger one or it is someone who is behaving like a child. When it pertains to news, it isn’t good news. It usually relates to finances, material matters, and/or work.

The news was either about, or in reference to, the King of Pentacles (reversed). If a person, this is someone very focused on money and/or material matters. They don’t even have to have money since in the reversed position it could point to a situation where someone is broke, has spent well beyond their means, or gambles. It’s showing a negative financial situation for someone involved that comes across as male energy and an adult. The Fool, pulled in connection with this King card, shows someone as having made a risky – and potentially naïve – decision. They wanted to try something new, and it was a situation with a lot of uncertainty.

The High Priestess reversed is telling me there’s a lot of secrets surrounding whatever the Page, King, and Fool card are presenting. There is also a sense of betrayal and hidden agendas. So what people close to this whole situation see right now is not likely a full representation of what was happening.

The Three of Pentacles is either someone embarking on learning a new trade and/or a collaboration that seemed to be going well at the time. It’s a card that comes up when someone is recognized for having worked hard too sometimes. So did he have some kind of collaboration or work-type thing going that eventually went wrong? All of that factors in, but I’m not sure how since there are multiple possibilities.

The Page of Swords is another card that can indicate messages regarding delays or problems that have come up suddenly. The Seven of Wands shows the person who received it as giving into it. It is coming across as a last straw type of deal where this marked the point in which someone felt they no longer had any control over something.

But the next two cards are interesting because the Ace of Wands is a new beginnings card and it’s coming up in its upright form. Temperance is a card of balance and harmonious relationships. Both cards contrast considerably with many in the other two readings since they are positive and appearing near the end of the reading.

Because I don’t have any information beyond the mere basics (date of disappearance, name, location), it is best for someone who has more to evaluate the first reading to determine what scenario makes sense. No matter what, there is at least one person (probably two) who were involved in these circumstances. Either Kyle caused his own disappearance, anything that may entail, or at least one person (Queen of Cups reversed) was directly involved in it. I wish that I could say with more of a degree of certainty which way this one falls, but I can’t. As always, this is a tarot reading. None of it is to be taken as fact, but I’m hoping some of the information might give someone close to Kyle some ideas on where to look or who might have answers.

Ryan Shtuka – Traditional Manga tarot

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. When/if I say that something happened, in any part of a reading description, I mean that is what I am interpreting from the cards, their positions, and other related factors.


Ryan disappeared from Sun Peaks resort in B.C., Canada, sometime between about 1:30am and 2:10am on February 17th of 2018. People initially thought he went missing closer to 2:10am; however, a text message either sent or received by Ryan showed that he likely left a party he was attending closer to 1:30am. He had attended the party and is assumed to have left it to go home. It doesn’t seem as though anyone remembers him leaving though. Ryan’s residence was located close to where he spent time with friends.

He was officially reported missing when he didn’t show up to his work later on the 17th. At least one sighting placed Ryan near the town’s village area at about 1:55am, but it isn’t clear if this – or any other similar sightings – have ever been confirmed. A factor that further complicated the situation was that it was extremely cold on the evening he disappeared. A large amount of snow fell by the following day as well.

An extensive search commenced for Ryan, but no trace of Ryan has been found since he went missing in 2018. His family has continued to actively search for Ryan.

The Reading:

Ryan’s reading begins with the Seven of Wands reversed. This card communicates feelings of being overwhelmed, defensiveness, or concerns that others might be criticizing or judging the person the reading is about.

The Six of Wands reversed is showing me a situation where a person feels they are not getting proper recognition or are concerned they are either not achieving what they should. Sometimes with this card there is the sense that no one is properly recognizing their achievements. It can cause someone to doubt their own abilities or talents.

Justice reversed is a card that appears in the context of these kinds of situations when something unlawful or unjust has occurred. It is a card denoting a lack of proper accountability and can sometimes come up when there is a retribution aspect to a problem or situation.

The Nine of Wands reversed is a card that shows a situation where there is a refusal to compromise or a lack of persistence.

The Eight of Cups is a card that shows the person in question as needing to walk away from a situation or person because it is no longer a beneficial aspect of their life. The cards are reading as thought Ryan had some kind of conflict or issue with someone that he encountered but did not have the desire or energy to actively fight or argue and so he tried to walk away from it. The card might represent literally walking away from a person or problem, or it can depict someone who has made the intellectual and emotional decision to do it.

Strength reversed indicates a situation where a person feels intensely afraid or worried about what it happening to or around them. In a normal reading – that does not involve someone who is missing – it’s a concerning card because it indicates a strong sense of anger, depression, or fear. However, the cause is usually something that is happening in the person’s life – something that is draining the happiness from their existence. In this kind of reading, where someone has disappeared, it can pertain to an immediate situation that feels life threatening.

A card in this reading that is really throwing me for a loop is the Three of Wands. The card is much more positive than the earlier ones. I often see this card come up with regard to travel. It doesn’t necessarily mean travel to far away places. It also may show someone engaging in planning as well. If he went into the village area, could he have gotten into someone’s vehicle because the weather was so cold that he worried he wouldn’t make it back on his own?

The Ten of Swords reversed is a tricky card. In its upright position, in relation to these types of cases, it can prove disturbing. In its reversed position, however, it represents surviving hardship and learning lessons from those experiences. However, swords are a suit of intellect and thought patterns so it can also refer to a person’s mental state at a particular time. Let’s say, for instance, that it turned out Ryan decided to take a ride from someone. At first, he might have thought that the decision saved him from a potentially fatal situation.

The final card is the Lovers reversed. Since nothing in this reading seems to suggest there was a romantic situation or problem at the heart of his disappearance, then its meaning is likely associated with the decision-making facet of the card. The Lovers, upright and reversed, can also signify an important decision that a person has made or needs to make. In this context, the Lovers reversed is telling me that Ryan made a bad decision. It isn’t saying he made a stupid one or did something he shouldn’t have done; it is just telling me that whatever he decided to do did not produce a desired or good outcome for him.

Question: How can we find Ryan?

The tarot is great for telling or showing a story surrounding something that has happened in the past. However, it does not provide clear insight into the practical aspects of finding missing people. I decided to try adding an additional layer to this reading by doing a three-card Lenormand spread.


The Letter – The Cross – The Journal

Tarot and Lenormand readings about what happened to Ryan Shtuka.

Reading and Information:

The Letter + The Cross = News will come about Ryan’s fate/situation

The Cross + The Journal = Guilt and sadness will reveal hidden information

The Letter + The Journal = Written messages, or the analysis of written information, will help to uncover important information/discoveries

In conclusion, I hope for a positive resolution here. Nothing I write about these readings should be taken as fact without evidence or proof to back it up.

Mekayla Bali – Thelma tarot

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. When/if I say that something happened, in any part of a reading description, I mean that is what I am interpreting from the cards, their positions, and other related factors.


Mekayla Bali was 16 when she disappeared in 2016. She was last seen in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Canada on April 12th. On the day that Mekayla was last known to have been seen, she was caught on CCTV footage at various locations. Early in the morning, at about 6:41am, Mekayla texted a friend to ask for a ride to a local TD bank. The friend declined, saying that the bank wouldn’t be open until later in the day.

The beginning of Mekayla’s day seemed ordinary enough in that her grandmother dropped her off at school around 8:10am. She was seen on the school’s CCTV as placing a binder in her locker. At about 8:30am, Mekalya was shown on the footage to have left the school through a back exit/entrance. She went to a pawn shop and tried to get money for a silver ring. However, the person working at the shop said it did not have enough value. Just before 9am, Mekayla was shown withdrawing money on footage at the TB Bank. She took out $55.

Shortly thereafter, cameras caught her entering a Wendy’s restaurant. She spent about 15 minutes inside the restaurant before leaving. Almost immediately after leaving, Mekayla re-entered the restaurant and sat down. She is shown on footage as using her phone, sending texts and engaging in what appeared to be somewhat lengthy phone calls. At some point, she texted a friend saying “hey, I need help” but then texted again a little later and said “nevermind I figured it out.” Mekayla approaches an older woman who was eating at the restaurant and asked for help to rent a hotel room. The woman declined and Mekayla left.

She was later seen at an STC Bus Depot, and she asked about tickets to Regina – a place she had reportedly told people she wanted to go for vacation purposes. She did not buy a ticket, however. She had lunch at the Trail Stop Restaurant and then left. That was the last known footage of Mekayla. Police checked to see if she got on any of the buses that left but found no indication that she had. By the next morning, at 6:51am, Mekayla’s phone was turned off.

An odd aspect of the case is that calls Mekayla was shown to make on CCTV footage did not come up on her cell phone records, prompting investigators to wonder if she had a second phone or if she used an app to make the calls. She was known to use social media apps and websites, including Instagram and Kik. Though police have received hundred of different tips about possible sightings, none seem to have been confirmed as being Mekayla. Police were unable to confirm that every sighting was not Mekayla and so it is unknown if any true sightings have occurred or not.

The Reading:

The reading begins with the Seven of Wands reversed. The opening card in my readings represents the person, or their state of mind, that I am doing the reading on. In this case, the card reflects what Mekayla was feeling and experiencing at the time of her disappearance. It shows her as going through a time where she was feeling overwhelmed by a lot of different things in her life. She worried a lot about what other people thought of her and felt that people were judging her, as well as her decisions. The card also tells me that Mekayla did not like conflict, and she would avoid it whenever possible. It looks as though she was feeling somewhat defeated.

The Death card came up in the reversed position. In this case, it does not seem to represent actual death. Typically the Death card does not refer to a person’s death, but in some instances – when combined with cards pointing in that direction – it does. Instead, its positioning next to Mekayla’s starting out card tells me that many things were holding Mekayla back as far as getting beyond a rut or situation she was in. There was a lot she wanted to do and try, but she was afraid of change and there was a tendency to keep making some of the same mistakes repeatedly.

The Emperor reversed represents a person that was in Mekayla’s life, or came into her life, who was abusing his authority with the intention of taking advantage of her. It is unclear as to whether she knew this person in her day-to-day life before the day she vanished, or if it was someone she met online and possible had not met in person yet. Either way, there was a man involved in all of this. He may have presented himself as something completely different than he was, but in truth he was domineering, rigid in his ways and beliefs, and controlling. His interest in Mekayla was not innocent. He was not trying to help her, though he might have presented himself that way to her.

The Three of Pentacles reversed is a card of conflict and competition. It suggests that there was some arguing going on between Mekayla and at least one other person. Something to note about this card is that it often refers to a project or a situation where there is a shared goal – or at least the pretense of one. A possibility is that she had a plan to meet someone, or go somewhere with them, and there were issues coming up that seemed as though they were making it difficult.

At some point, Mekayla likely knew that things were not quite right with the person mentioned previously. I get the sense that she had been tricked before or that she had conversed with people who made claims about who they were, but those turned out not to be true – typical catfish types of scenarios. Judgement reversed shows Mekayla as failing to learn from past mistakes and denying the truth of her immediate situation – regardless of her gut feelings on the matter or evidence suggesting something was wrong. Self-esteem issues were absolutely at play here and she is being shown as someone who tended to blame herself and take her anger out on herself.

The Queen of Pentacles reversed is coming up in her reading and this represents a person or energy that is self-absorbed. I do not get the impression this card applies to Mekayla at all. It has a feel to it that is extremely different. Additionally, if it represents a person, it was someone who felt jealous or envious of Mekayla for some reason. It may tie directly to the Three of Pentacles reversed and explain the competition aspect of that card within the context of this reading. It presents as a kind of competition between two people.

With court cards, I often pull an additional card to get a better sense of what is going on with the person or energy the court card is communicating. In this case, I pulled the Knight of Wands – another court card. The Knight of Wands has a youthful energy to it that is more on par with someone in Mekayla’s general age range. As I have said before, nothing is concrete about the court cards in terms of gender or age. The focus is more on the attributes, qualities, and energy they convey. The Knight of Wands is always looking for a challenge. It is a person who likes excitement and sometimes bites off more than they can chew in this regard. They can be rebellious and quick to anger.

I am wondering if the Knight card represents the child of the person depicted in the Queen’s position. Both are coming across to me as being individual people. Unless there was only one, pretending to be the other. Like an older person acting as a younger one.

The Six of Wands reversed, on the final row, suggests to me that Mekayla was in a state of mind where she felt neglected and unloved. Remember, people have these feelings at times when they are not reflective of a person’s true situation. I think Mekayla was often hard on herself, so these types of emotions were probably not foreign to her. This card shows her as looking for outside support (outside of her immediate family) and so I would expect her to have been actively reaching out to people to get it. She reportedly asked an older woman for help getting a hotel room and that feels consistent with what this card is conveying. I think she asked for help from many sources and not just one.

The Seven of Pentacles is a card that usually comes up when a person has reached the point where their time and effort has finally paid off – or at least feels as if it has. Mekayla may have felt she secured the help she was requesting. It comes across as an offer of money or something material in nature. It could have been an offer of money in exchange for some kind of work, or something offered without the appearance of any strings attached. But the Queen of Swords reversed tells me that whatever was offered to Meykayla was done as a means of manipulating her. It put Mekayla in a dangerous and bad position – probably unbeknownst to her at first. A person matching the description of the Queen of Swords reversed is someone who behaves in a way that is toxic, manipulative, and cruel. Whatever such a person does or is doing, it is for themselves.

I pulled the Eight of Pentacles reversed in relation to the Queen card. A confusing aspect of this card is that it represents a dead-end type of job or something that does not require much skill. In some cases, it can refer to work that gives a person a bad reputation – either because they aren’t really putting in the effort and time they should or because the job itself is not on the up and up. Did someone offer Mekayla a way to make money that might have seemed appealing at first, but turned out to be a different situation altogether? I’m not sure.

The reading did not provide a definitive answer as to whether Mekayla is alive or not. If she is alive, she is not in a situation where she has much (if any) control over her life. The possibilities that come to mind regarding the last card in her reading – the Eight of Pentacles reversed – make me think of prostitution, drugs, and/or trafficking. However, I want to put it out there that I am not certain about this based on this one reading alone.

I’m definitely getting a catfish vibe from all of this as in she was tricked somehow, and it probably is not the first time the person or people have done it.

I would recommend watching for sightings of Mekayla or looking for attempts on her part to make contact with someone she knows. Again, I’m not saying she is alive. I genuinely cannot get a feel for that here. But intuitively I feel that I should caution against discounting sightings or occurrences where it seems like she is trying to send a message or communicate with someone.

As I always try to explain, I have no way to know what happened for certain. Please do not take any of the information described in the readings as fact until or unless details are proven. I would love to see an outcome where Mekayla is found and is able to return to her loved ones. The situations that end positively remind me not to give up hope.
