Timmothy Pitzen

Disappearance: May 11, 2011
Location: Aurora, Illinois

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.


Timmothy Pitzen was six-years-old when he was last seen on May 11th of 2011. His mother, Amy Fry-Pitzen, is said to have taken him on a trip for three days to various water and amusement parks. She was found deceased in a motel room in Rockford, Illinois, and the cause of death was ruled as a suicide. She did not indicate where Timmothy was or what happened to him, except to say that he was safe and in someone’s care.

Question: What circumstances caused Timmothy’s disappearance?

Row 1
The Fool – 7 of Wands – The Hermit (r)

Row 2
Queen of Pentacles – Strength – Knight of Swords
Card pulled for the Queen of Pentacles: 9 of Swords
Card pulled for the Knight of Swords: 6 of Wands

Row 3
8 of Wands (r) – 2 of Swords (r) – 4 of Swords


The Fool is the first card in the reading and probably represents the trip that Timmothy and his mom took. The card suggests there was spontaneity to those circumstances and that it was not something that was well planned in advance. It could have been planned, just not with a lot of clear or advanced notice.

The Seven of Wands is showing a person who felt under attack and protective (and potentially territorial).

The Hermit reversed shows a person feeling as though they have been cast aside and are not wanted. It’s someone who feels withdrawn and rejected.

The Queen of Pentacles would normally be a positive card in that it usually represents an older feminine type of energy. It is associated with mother or motherly figures who put a lot of time and effort into their home life (and work life if they are career minded). However, the Nine of Swords came up in connection with this person and this shows me someone experiencing a deep depression or a deep sense of unhappiness, anxiety, and overall negativity. It can indicate significant mental health issues.

The Strength card seems to indicate that there was an effort to push through it all and overcome those internal feelings of self-doubt, regret, negativity, etc.

Strength is situated between the Queen and the Knight of Swords, which tells me that whoever falls into the position of the Knight was perceived as the main obstacle preventing the person in the Queen’s position from overcoming what she was going through. The Knight of Swords comes across as a younger adult energy – or younger in terms of their behavior and thought patterns – who was (or still is) good with words and opinionated. This is a person that would tell you how they are feeling about something directly and clearly.

The Six of Wands came up in connection with the Knight of Swords. This card indicates a desire for recognition, attention, praise, and/or support. It’s also a card about winning and that desire that a person might have to achieve victory or gain an advantage.

The Eight of Wands reversed can represent impulsivity and a lack of control. It also indicates bad timing – such as being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or circumstances not going in one’s favor.

The Two of Swords reversed is interesting because it suggests that there was something that came to light that would explain what triggered all of this. It’s a card about lies being exposed and the truth coming out. It’s also representative of emotional turmoil and feelings that have become overwhelming.

The Four of Swords is the card that comes up when someone has experiences complete mental and/or emotional overload and need to find relief or rest from it. In this case, it seems to point to Amy’s suicide and the culmination of emotions that appear to have led up to it.

Question: Who or what caused Timmothy’s disappearance?

Row 1
5 of Cups (r) – Judgement – 2 of Pentacles

Row 2
6 of Cups – 8 of Cups – Strength

Row 3
5 of Swords – Hanged Man – 4 of Cups (r)


This doesn’t come across as a situation where there was an outside person that got involved in the circumstances surrounding Timmothy’s disappearance. What I mean by this is that it’s reading like the mom is the who and the what here.

The Five of Cups reversed is a card about overcoming despair and letting go of sorrow.

Judgement can represent a self-evaluation of sorts and the idea of a rebirth or life changing opportunity. It can also be about transformation and starting again. It makes me wonder what Amy’s religious or spiritual beliefs were because there is this sense that she did what she did with this expectation in mind that it wasn’t the actual end. It’s possible that she believed in life after death and that the only way to get relief from the emotions and problems she was experiencing was through the process of dying. I don’t know how to explain that better, but it’s just a strong feeling I got as I read these cards.

The Two of Pentacles shows someone who experienced ups and downs – likely trying to find balance or a way to deal with the chaos they felt was surrounding them or within them.

The Six of Cups can be a card about reminiscing – for better or worse – about one’s childhood or past experiences. Sometimes it can indicate that a person was abused as a child, but not always.

The Eight of Cups is walking away from a person or situation that one feels is no longer beneficial to them. What’s odd about it is that is often comes with this dynamic of gathering strength and courage to accomplish this. So I don’t know if Amy felt torn about her plans and was trying to gather the courage to execute them, or if there is another component to this card that I’m not seeing.

Strength came up again in this reading and is about overcoming hardships. Often it pertains to feelings of doubt or disbelief in a person’s ability to persevere.

The Five of Swords is a conflict card, but it can also indicate self-sabotage and violence. It usually denotes situations where a person doesn’t feel like they can completely overcome the problem or whoever is associated with it, and so they either admit defeat or they take other action.

The Hanged Man is showing the need for release and a feeling of being confined or trapped. It’s also a card of sacrifice – usually with the belief that it is for a greater good or a higher cause/power.

The Four of Cups reversed is when a person leaves a period of stagnation. They feel they have a viable opportunity to do something, and they take it.

Neither of the readings gave me clear insight into what happened to Timmothy specifically. There are definitely a lot of cards suggesting emotional distress/mental illness on the part of the mom. Like I always say, these are just tarot readings, and I don’t have a way to know what happened for sure or what the facts are surrounding these situations. I didn’t see cards that suggested Timmothy is alive, but there weren’t any that outright showed him as deceased either. The mom might have possibly had some beliefs about the afterlife and/or reincarnation that fueled some of the decisions she made. It would be interesting to know what her religious and spiritual beliefs were regarding all that because I think it would tell people a lot about what really happened here and why.

Summer Moon-Utah Wells

Disappearance: 06/15/2021
Location: Rogersville, Tennessee

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.


Summer Moon-Utah Wells vanished on June 15th of 2021 in Rogersville, Tennessee. She was reported as missing from her residence, located in the Beech Creek Community, at 6:30pm in the evening. Currently, law enforcement conducted a search of more than 1,000 acres in the area surrounding her home. She has reportedly not been seen since. She was five years old at the time of her disappearance.

Question: Who or what caused Summer’s disappearance?

Row 1
Chariot – King of Swords (reversed) – Devil (reversed)
Card pulled for the King of Swords (r): The Hermit

Row 2
2 of Pentacles (reversed) – Empress – Page of Pentacles (reversed)
Card pulled for the Page of Pentacles (r): The Fool (reversed)

Row 3
3 of Wands – 9 of Pentacles – Knight of Swords (reversed)
Card pulled for the Knight of Swords (r): 2 of Swords


The Chariot is a card of travel and movement so right off I get the impression that she was taken away from her home setting. The card can refer to a vehicle or other mode of transportation, but it’s showing this right away in the reading.

Next it is showing me the King of Swords reversed. This is telling me that a man is likely responsible for her disappearance. The King of Swords reversed is someone who can be opinionated and stubborn in the way they view things. They can be biased and lack general objectivity. In the reversed position, this can point to someone who lacks integrity and manipulates facts or information. I pulled the Hermit in connection with this person so it is coming across like this is a person who is known to go off on their own sometimes – to think about things or get away from things.

The Devil reversed is suggesting that at the time of Summer’s disappearance, this person might have been in the process of trying to overcome one or more addictions. Another aspect of this card, in the reversed position, is that it can represent someone with cruel intentions or someone who gets control over situations using psychological manipulation. Most importantly, the Devil reversed usually represents someone who hides their darkness from other people. They have secret fantasies, thoughts, and addictions that the people around them may not see. The person might seem okay on the surface, but there is a dark shadow side to their personality.

The Two of Pentacles reversed is showing that there might have been a financial or material stressor that led up to this. That is not to say that it has anything at all to do with Summer; it is more meant to communicate what was going on in this person’s life as a potential means of identifying them and understanding why they took the action they did.

The Empress is a challenging card in these readings because it does not always seem to hold quite the same meaning as it does in a more traditional type of reading. On it’s face, it represents a female and motherly figure. In its upright position, it typically has positive meaning and implications. The problem is that I get this card consistently in cases where a person was murdered. I’m not saying that it means that Summer is deceased, but for me it is a concerning card to see – in this particular context.

The Page of Pentacles (reversed) refers to bad news or a person who is overly intense. At times, this card refers to people that are into some darker things. For lack of a better way of describing this, it can sometimes point to types of magic or energy that is intended to cause harm. This is not always the case, but that meaning is a possibility and so I’m putting it out there. There is a sense of real darkness in all of this, but it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what it all entails. I pulled the Fool reversed in connection with the Page of Pentacles reversed and that tells me that the person we are dealing with is someone who behaves recklessly. This person takes risks and uses poor judgement to get what they want.

The Three of Wands is both a travel and planning card. It’s showing me that this person feels pretty comfortable in terms of feeling as though they have successfully implemented whatever plan it was that they had. I don’t know if travel refers to this person taking Summer away from her home or if it is suggesting that he left the area at some point after. It is hard to say because I can’t get a clear feel for whether this person was local.

The Nine of Pentacles, in a reading that is coming across to me as a potential abduction situation – or at least one where the person was taken away from their home – usually refers to a secondary location. It basically tells me that this person likely had access to another place or property. Either they lived on their own, or they had a place where they could have taken summer. I got this card in a reading I did for Jayme Closs and Amanda Berry – both of whom were eventually found alive, and who had been kept at a home or property. So if Summer was taken, there is a possibility she was kept for a time. I can’t even rule out the possibility that she still is. Determining for certain whether a person is alive or deceased, via readings like this, is extremely difficult.

Okay, there is potentially someone else directly involved OR a younger male adult who might have suspicions about all of this but either is not voicing them or who is not being heard/taken seriously. I do not know if this is a person related to the man who has already been discussed or if it is someone who knows him. But this person seems to have information that either they are trying to stay in denial about, or that other people are dismissing for some reason. He may have some kind of direct knowledge because the Two of Swords, pulled in connection with his card, is kind of a rock-and-a-hard place card where a person does not really feel they have any good choices to pick from at the moment and so they may not make any at all.

Question: What circumstances caused Summer’s disappearance?

Row 1
Hierophant (reversed) – 5 of Wands (reversed) – 7 of Pentacles

Row 2
Hanged Man (reversed) – The World – Temperance

Row 3
Queen of Swords – The Chariot – The Star
Card pulled for the Queen of Swords: The Magician (reversed)


The Hierophant reversed is an interesting card to get at the start of a reading like this. It could be as simple as a situation where the main person involved in this was triggered by problems in a marriage, or by a divorce-type situation. However, it can also point to circumstances and/or people that are unconventional. It sometimes comes up where there are odd groups of people involved or cult-type situations. So there’s a few possibilities there.

The Five of Wands reversed is showing the end to a struggle and/or conflict. It is as though something major happened and then it was addressed – either through peaceful means or forceful ones.

The Seven of Pentacles is depicting a situation where one or more people are waiting for the work that they have put into something to pay off. On one hand, it could hint at there being a somewhat longer-term plan involved in all of this. An example would be that if she were abducted, someone might have been kind of stalking her from a distance and waiting until they had an opportune time to act. It could mean something else entirely, but that is what came to my mind.

The Hanged Man reversed shows me someone who makes the same mistakes repeatedly and demonstrates negative patterns of thought and/or behavior. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is someone involved here who has served prison time or been arrested. Sometimes this card comes up when someone commits suicide or is contemplating it. It’s just not typically a positive card. These readings seem overshadowed by this sense that there are serious mental health issues behind all this.

The World shows something coming full circle, but it can also indicate a plan that is implemented successfully. The more I read on this, the more this all feels premeditated.

Temperance is usually about finding balance and harmony. I am not sure what it means here.

The Queen of Swords usually represents an independent kind of adult female who is logical and usually intelligent. The Magician reversed, in connection with this card, either refers to a completely different person associated with the Queen of Swords – or it refers to her. The Magician reversed is someone who is resourceful, but they use their resources and skills in ways that may victimize other people. Such a person might scam people, trick them into doing or saying things that benefit them, etc. It’s a manipulative person and typically a narcissist as well.

The Chariot is again showing travel and movement. I always get this card in readings I do on Summer (I did some in the past, but never posted them online). Because it keeps reappearing, I am taking that to mean it deserves real emphasis. I do think Summer was taken away from her house. I don’t know who took her. I don’t even know for sure who didn’t take her. But I have to wonder if this is trying to stress to me that the person involved is not in her household. I know that’s the popular belief. I’d have to live under a rock not to see some of the things people are saying about the parents. But if I step back, and I put all of that aside, and I tell you what the cards are saying and how my intuition is reading them…this looks like some kind of abduction. Can I rule out one or both parents? No. But are these cards pointing to them? No, they aren’t.

The Star suggests to me that this case will be solved. I don’t know how it will work out in terms of what Summer’s status is now – or will be when the answers are uncovered – but this card is telling me that the answers will come at some point. Maybe the person in the Knight of Swords reversed position will come forth with information. Something will happen.

So based on these readings, I would say that even though there is a ton of focus on the parents, it is worthwhile to entertain other possibilities as well. I really wouldn’t rule anything out here. I think someone likely planned this and there’s more to this than people are seeing.

Kristian Justice and Kaylah Hunter

Disappearance: 5/27/2014 (some sources say 5/24/2014)
Location: Detroit, Michigan

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.


In May of 2014, Kristian Dejuan Justice – who was born on October 2nd of 2013 – disappeared along with his mother, Alicia, and his half-sister Kaylah Nevaeh Hunter. Kaylah was born on November 8th of 2007 and was six years old at the time. A couple of weeks later, Alicia was found deceased and wrapped in a blanket in the basement of a vacant home. The two children remain missing.

Question: Who happened to cause Kristian Dejuan’s Justice’s disappearance?

Row 1
5 of Wands (reversed) – King of Pentacles (reversed) – The World
Card pulled for the King of Pentacles (r): Ace of Cups

Row 2
The Moon – 4 of Cups – Knight of Pentacles (reversed)
Card pulled for the Knight of Pentacles (r): 4 of Pentacles

Row 3
Queen of Swords – 9 of Pentacles – Queen of Cups
Card pulled for the Queen of Swords: Chariot (reversed)
Card pulled for the Queen of Cups: 8 of Cups


What the reading, as a whole, is showing me is that Kristian’s mother was trying to leave a bad relationship/situation. Her trying to get away from it completely – or perhaps expressing a desire to do so – seems to have set the male off that is represented by the King of Pentacles reversed. The Five of Wands reversed shows me a situation that becomes calm or peaceful – after a period or event of conflict. The King of Pentacles reversed is coming across as a man who was experiencing hardship financially – likely due to his own decisions and behaviors. I’m seeing this as a person who was likely unfaithful in his relationships and probably projected that on to other people – even in cases where the other person was faithful to the relationship.

The King of Pentacles reversed can present as a person who is extremely cold, ruthless, and cruel. I have a hard time believing that anyone that felt this man’s wrath came out on the other end unscathed – children included. The Ace of Cups, in connection with the King reversed card, suggests one of two possibilities. The first is that the motive behind Alicia’s murder was because the King reversed felt she was leaving him, or was trying to leave him, for another person. The second is that the King reversed wanted to get her out of his life so that it would pave the way for him to commit to another relationship that the cards are showing him as having begun prior to her murder.

The World shows everything coming full circle for Kristian, which I really do not take as a good sign with regard to his fate. I don’t ever like to outright say that I think someone is deceased, but the cards are not giving me a lot to work with in terms of finding ones that are more on the hopeful side.

The Moon shows that there is still a great deal of deception surrounding everything that happened here. The person responsible has continued to lie about his role and involvement. I don’t know enough about this case to know if he ever confessed to Alicia’s murder, but these cards are not showing him as coming clean about what happened to the children. The other thing that stands out to me is there is another male involved in all of this. It is likely someone who is a bit younger than the person in the King reversed position – or at least this is someone who has the mentality of someone who is younger than that person. This person has not been honest about what they know, or the extent of their involvement either. The Four of Pentacles is telling me that the main reason for this is they do not want to face the financial and material consequences.

The Four of Cups is a card that came before the Knight of Pentacles reversed and the Four of Pentacles. It shows me that there were more opportunities to get to the bottom of all this, earlier on when Alicia was discovered murdered. However, some of those opportunities are gone now and I am taking that to mean critical evidence that might have shown where the two children are.

So we have this second person who knows much more than they are admitting. Then on the third row, we have the Queen of Swords and the Chariot reversed which tells me there is likely a third person with information and/or involvement of some kind. I cannot get a clear view on what was going on with this person. I’m not necessarily getting the impression that this person helped commit a crime. She might have tried to assist Alicia or the children and got caught up in it all somehow. I’m really not sure. This part is not clear to me.

The Nine of Pentacles is showing me someone who has become independent and successful. I don’t know how this is related specifically, but maybe it is meant to help identify the female involved.

I am seeing the Queen of Cups as Alicia because the card pulled in connection with her is the Eight of Cups. This shows me someone who had recently left, or was in the process of leaving, a situation she knew was not serving her well. I’m seeing it as an abusive type of situation that she did not realize she was taking on when she first got involved with the man who killed her.

I don’t see the King of Pentacles reversed person as telling what they know and did. I think that answers will need to come from the person represented by the Knight of Pentacles reversed card. This person may have already shared some information, but I see him as downplaying the degree of his knowledge and the extent of his involvement.

Question: What happened to Kaylah Hunter?

Row 1
7 of Swords – King of Pentacles (reversed) – 6 of Swords (reversed)
Card pulled for the King of Pentacles (r): Magician (reversed)

Row 2
3 of Pentacles (reversed) – Temperance – King of Wands (reversed)
Card pulled for the King of Wands (r): Ace of Swords (reversed)

Row 3
9 of Wands – 2 of Swords – 8 of Cups (reversed)


The reading on Kaylah is showing me that the same primary person that was responsible for her brother’s disappearance, and her mother’s death, was responsible for what happened to her as well: the King of Pentacles reversed. As you can see, he came up in both readings. The Seven of Swords was the first card, and this shows that the person responsible was very deceitful – in pretty much every aspect of his life. He was not faithful in relationships. He was not honest. He was extremely manipulative. And he got (maybe still gets) away with a lot. People potentially underestimate what this man is capable of and the degree to which he can be cunning.

The King of Pentacles reversed came up with the Magician reversed. This shows me someone who conned and tricked people to get what they wanted. It also shows someone with a degree of intelligence and resourcefulness. This man can get other people to do his bidding for him by lying and manipulating them. He probably pulled several people into this mess who may still not have fully realized it yet.

The Six of Swords can have a dual meaning here. On one hand, it shows someone rocking the proverbial boat and standing their ground. I think that Alicia did this and tried to get away from this man. However, sometimes this card comes up when there has been a drowning or a situation where someone has been put into water. I’m not saying that’s what happened to Kaylah – because I do not know – but I’m putting it out there as a potential meaning.

The Three of Pentacles reversed shows that the man behind all this did involve other people and it did not go well. I don’t know if one of the people turned on him to save themselves or what. But something went wrong with that aspect of the situation. Temperance shows me as someone trying to balance the situation and escape from the conflict. The King of Wands reversed could be the same person who came up in the first reading in the Knight of Pentacles reversed position, but I am not sure about this. If not, then we have another man involved in some aspect of all this. That person has been incredibly dishonest also – as shown by the Ace of Swords reversed. The reversed positioning is someone hiding their truth. It’s also someone who made one or more really poor decisions with regard to all of this.

The Nine of Wands shows that there have been a lot of setbacks in this case and that there are people with information who are worn down. They might be more inclined to talk than they were before, but keep in mind if the worst-case scenario proves true about what happened to these two children, then anyone else with knowledge recognizes that the stakes are high. Maybe they could strike an immunity deal if they tell police what they know. I don’t know. But this whole thing is very dark and terrible.

The Two of Swords show that there are still people in denial about some aspects of this. I don’t know who this is pointing to – if it is referring to someone else with knowledge. It’s also a card that comes up when a person feels they have no optimal or good choices. Every decision they make could cause them serious problems. But that’s the main issue here, isn’t it? That people are much more worried about protecting themselves than letting the family of these children know what really happened to them.

The Eight of Cups reversed is showing me people living with a bad situation. They don’t want to take the risk of admitting the truth. It comes across like they are afraid they will be abandoned by people they care about or that the consequences will be significant. Which makes me really worry about the ultimate fate of these two kids. A minimum of two people know where they are or where they left them, is the best way I can put that.

Morgan Nick

Disappearance: 06/09/1995
Location: Alma, Arkansas

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.


Morgan Nick was 6 years old when she disappeared from a parking lot that was located near the Wofford baseball field. She was last seen catching fireflies with other children before she vanished completely.

Question: Who or what caused Morgan’s disappearance?

Row 1
Devil (reversed) – 7 of Pentacles – 6 of Cups

Row 2
Page of Swords – 2 of Wands – Knight of Wands
Card pulled for the Page of Swords: 8 of Cups (reversed)
Card pulled for the Knight of Wands: 3 of Swords

Row 3
The Sun – 5 of Wands – The Lovers


In response to the question regarding who or what caused Morgan’s disappearance, the cards are showing me with energy consistent with an adult male. It was either someone on the younger side or someone who had the mentality of a younger adult. The Devil reversed shows someone who was trying to regain a sense of control over their life. This was likely a person who had a few different things going on in terms of vices and what-not.

The Seven of Pentacles is what is suggesting to me that his mindset might have been that of a younger adult, but in actuality this was likely someone older. This is a card that usually depicts a situation where someone has worked toward something for a while and are waiting to reap the benefits of prior work put in. The card does not always pertain to career or work matters, but it’s telling me this was a person who had accumulated experience by the time they caused Morgan’s disappearance.

The Six of Cups points to a person that might have had some kind of past childhood trauma and/or abuse. It shows me someone who thought a lot about matters dating back to their childhood. They may or may not have shared those details with others, but it is coming up in the reading for a reason – probably as a kind of identifier.

The second row gives me a little more insight into the circumstances surrounding Morgan’s disappearance. First, it doesn’t look like this was a family member or a friend of the family. This is coming across as a stranger. I don’t know if they had any prior interactions with Morgan or her family, but I just want to point out that this is a predatory-type situation where someone looks for victims based on personal preferences regarding age, sex, etc.

The Page of Swords likely represents Morgan. The pages typically represent children, people who behave in ways consistent with a child, or messages. If Morgan was an intelligent child who seems somewhat wise beyond her years, then this card would fit for her. The Eight of Cups reversed is coming up in connection with the Page card. It suggests a person who had concerns about being left behind, or perhaps was not always comfortable being on their own.

The Two of Wands shows travel and movement away from the area. I think he was familiar with the area and region, but he either left because he was worried about being linked to the crime if he stayed or because it wasn’t where he resided. If he did reside there, then he moved immediately or shortly after the abduction. That could be a possible identifier.

The Knight of Wands is the card that likely directly represents the person responsible. He would have come across as warm and friendly. I don’t think he would have been perceived as a threat. At least, not upon first meeting him. This would have been an action-oriented type of person who was always on the lookout for a new adventure or endeavor.

The Three of Swords – in connection with the Knight of Wands – suggests that at the time of Morgan’s disappearance, this person had experienced a pretty significant emotional event, such as a breakup or the loss of someone in their life. I don’t know if this was a trigger for them or if it’s meant to help identify them.

The Sun could refer to a couple of different things. One, it is possible that at some point this person had one or more children. Two, it might point to this person having gotten married or something along those lines. I’m not sure of the exact meaning for this one.

The Five of Wands shows that this person experienced conflict with multiple people. I don’t see his interactions as having been particularly harmonious. I think this was a person was possibly someone who caused or found trouble a lot – almost like they enjoyed it.

The Lovers is a card that either signifies a relationship, a choice, or both. I don’t know how it applies just yet. It could definitely point to their being a sexual component to all of this. If we link this card back to the first one in the reading, then it’s evident that this reading is communicating that this is a sick individual. Their perspective on sex, love, and relationships is not going to align with those of a normal or average person.

Question: What were the circumstances surrounding Morgan’s disappearance?

Row 1
3 of Swords – 2 of Wands – Hierophant (reversed)

Row 2
5 of Swords (reversed) – Empress (reversed) – The Fool (reversed)

Row 3
|Page of Swords – 4 of Swords – The Emperor
Card pulled for the Page of Swords: The Moon (reversed)


The Three of Swords made an appearance again in this second reading. There was definitely some kind of event that caused emotional/mental upset and likely acted as a trigger for the person responsible. It might have more significance than that since getting the same card, in the same upright position, is a way for the cards to emphasize the importance of it.

The Two of Wands is the same travel card. It also indicates some degree of planning in that this person probably sought out opportunities that he was prepared to seize. This card showed up in the last reading and has extra importance as well. I think it’s trying to communicate that this person was not immediately local to Alma. They may have lived in a town or city nearby, but they had to travel a distance to get from Point A to Point B. However, it feels like they had familiarity with the areas they paroled, so to speak.

The Hierophant reversed is showing someone who goes against the norm and tradition. It can represent someone who breaks the law and/or is unconventional.

The Five of Swords reversed is a card that can represent a resolution to a situation. In some cases, it is a violent one. Sometimes I get this card for people that get caught or found out for something and their arrest or incarceration is the resolution. There are a lot of possibilities with this one.

The Empress reversed could indicate that around the time of Morgan’s disappearance, the person who took her was experiencing family or domestic problems. The Empress reversed often points to trouble at home. It can also indicate financial difficulties. The person involved appears to have been operating under a few different stressors.

The Fool reversed is another card that indicates that this person saw an opportunity with Morgan and took it. He can depict taking unnecessary risks or acting in a way that is careless or reckless. So I think there was inherent risk in what he did – in terms of possibly being seen or identified – but he decided to do it anyway.

The Page of Swords is appearing again. This time it is linked to the Moon reversed. I am taking this as a positive sign because I see the Page as representing Morgan as the child that was taken, and the Moon reversed as an indicator of lies being exposed. All of this time has gone by, but the Moon reversed is pointing to a resolution in terms of answers being forthcoming. It is a card that represents the exposing of lies and the unveiling of secrets.

The Four of Swords is a card of rest or inactivity. In criminal types of cases, it can point to someone who is or has been incarcerated. Or it is referring to someone who – for whatever reason – is not active.

The Emperor may represent a man, or some type of event or structure, which paves the way for the secrets and lies to come out. It could represent someone who is working on this case – who has uncovered answers or is on the brink of doing so. Despite the age of this case, it doesn’t feel like it has been forgotten. There may be work behind the scenes that people don’t know about. I hope so at least. The flip side here is that it suggests that there were times when he was active – meaning that Megan may not have been his first and/or his last.

I want to say that nothing in these readings points to Morgan’s parents as having any involvement. I know that sometimes people look to the parents, but there’s not a single card in either reading that suggests anything like this. It actually reads more like a predatorial type of person who was seeking opportunities and took risks in seizing one or more of them. It would be worthwhile to look for other cases that are similar (victims of with similarities in terms of age, sex, and circumstances).

Sohail Ahmadi

Disappearance: 08/19/2021
Location: Kabul airport, Afghanistan

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.


Sohail Ahmadi was four months old when his parents handed him to U.S. troops so that they could pass through the gate at the airport in Kabul, while evacuating on August 19th of 2021. The baby subsequently vanished and – to my knowledge – the parents still don’t know where he is.

Question: What happened to cause the disappearance of Sohail Ahmadi?

Row 1
The Devil – 3 of Swords – 8 of Wands (reversed)

Row 2
Page of Wands (reversed) – The Moon – The Lovers

Row 3
6 of Pentacles – Page of Pentacles (reversed) – 2 of Pentacles (reversed)
Card pulled for the Page of Pentacles (r): Knight of Wands
Card pulled for the Knight of Wands: Queen of Cups (reversed)
Card pulled for the Queen of Cups (r): The Wheel of Fortune (reversed)


As I always say, this is a tarot reading and nothing should be taken as fact unless there is evidence that supports it. I did two readings on this and neither came across clearly, but I will just go ahead and share them in case somehow – in some way – they help someone.

The Devil card is one that can have a wide range of meanings and so I’m going to pinpoint specific ones that are linked to the other two cards on the same row. The Three of Swords is a heartbreak situation – where something happens that causes grief and sorrow. Eight of Wands reversed depicts a situation that has been delayed or taken out of one’s control. All three of these cards seem to point to the entire scenario in which the parents entrusted their baby to the troops, with an expectation that they would be reunited soon after, and then that outcome did not happen – leaving them feeling powerless and as though the situation were completely out of their control.

The Page of Wands reversed can indicate hasty or reckless decisions that were made. The Moon is a card that shows the situation being mysterious and there being more to it than people know. However, in the upright position that can sometimes lean toward more positive outcomes in which a situation seems really bad but might not be as terrible as anticipated. It depends.

The Lovers appears to pertain to a decision that was made with regard to the child. It could point to two people in a close relationship, but I’m not sure how that would work in the context of the other cards. It’s reading like someone made a quick decision that might have seemed minor at the time but ended up having far-reaching consequences. Maybe someone gave the baby to the wrong family? I can’t make total sense of this part.

The Six of Pentacles is indicating material types of help or support. The Page of Pentacles reversed seems to hint at a situation where people dropped the ball in terms of documenting things or doing their due diligence and follow through. The cards I pulled in connection to the Page include the Knight of Wands and the Queen of Cups reversed. These are followed by the Wheel of Fortune reversed. So it’s possible this reflects a second hand off situation – where the baby was given to someone else entirely with the unfounded belief it was one or more of his real family members or someone else that could take care of the baby. I don’t know if someone claimed it was their child accidentally or on purpose. The cards really indicate an overall sense of chaos and confusion – which is coming through the reading and making it hard to understand as well.

The Wheel of Fortune reversed seems to mark this as the turning point in the situation – the point when everything went wrong.

The Two of Pentacles reversed might indicate that one of the reasons this happened is because people involved were already feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about what to do in general. It’s not reading like someone deliberately gave the baby to someone they shouldn’t have. It seems like there was a second hand off in which a person might have thought they were giving the baby to his family or someone who would reunite them, but that was not the case – for some reason.

Question: What is currently happening with Sohail?

Row 1
10 of Pentacles – Ace of Swords – The Lovers (reversed)

Row 2
9 of Swords (reversed) – The Hierophant – 8 of Pentacles

Row 3
4 of Cups (reversed) – 10 of Wands (reversed) – The World (reversed)


This reading is confusing to me overall. The Ten of Pentacles is a card that usually indicates long term financial or material success. The Ace of Swords can represent new beginnings or a realization of a truth. The Lovers reversed is showing that someone is conscious that they made a bad decision in all of this.

The Nine of Swords reversed is showing a situation where there is potential hope, however. Although it is difficult to say how it applies specifically to this situation. The Hierophant is a card of traditions, ethics, and spirituality. The Eight of Pentacles depicts someone who has either taken on a new job or is working at perfecting their trade. It also relates to focusing on the details of a matter or problem. I don’t want to go off on a tangent and speculate, but I think the Hierophant might have specific meaning or symbolism here.

The Four of Cups reversed is about taking advantage of opportunities and making the choice to move beyond the past. It usually has positive meaning, but it can depend on how it applies in a situation. The Ten of Wands reversed conveys this sense that something or someone is resigned to their fate. It can show a person who feels overwhelmed and stressed out by everything happening. Maybe someone feels like they can’t set it all right because it’s already so far out of their control, or they are just hoping somehow the whole situation improves on its own.

The World reversed can sometimes indicate unwanted new beginnings and situations that have not yet come full circle. It communicates this sense that something has become a disappointment and is lacking in terms of its ability to become complete. It could indicate that there will be a delay in getting the answers his family is seeking, but that they will eventually come because it’s showing a cycle that is incomplete.

I really hoped to get more out of this one but it’s still a mystery to me.

Michael Vaughan

Disappearance: 07/27/2021
Location: Fruitland, Idaho

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.


Michael Vaughan, whose nickname was “Monkey”, disappeared from his neighborhood on July 27th of 2021 at the age of five.

Question: Who or what caused Michael Vaughan’s disappearance?

Row 1
The High Priestess – Strength (reversed) – 7 of Wands (reversed)

Row 2
8 of Wands – 2 of Swords (reversed) – 9 of Cups

Row 3
6 of Wands – Queen of Cups – The Chariot
Card pulled for the Queen of Cups: The Fool


The High Priestess is referring to intuition and hidden knowledge – potentially on a subconscious level. It suggests people directly involved in looking for him should listen to their gut feelings because they may be receiving assistance or guidance in terms of where he is or how they may find him.

Strength reversed shows a situation where Michael was overcome physically and emotionally.

The Seven of Wands reversed is related to the above card in that it represents someone who is giving up or admitting defeat.

The Eight of Wands depicts a situation that unfolded very quickly. So the events happened fast.

The Two of Swords reversed is suggesting that the truth about what happened will be exposed – potentially sooner rather than later if one factors in the speed in which things upfold as communicated by the Eight of Wands. This card also warns of lies being exposed so it does appear the truth will come out about this situation, and anyone involved.

The Nine of Cups, and the subsequent Six of Wands, are strange – but interesting – cards to appear in this particular reading. The Nine of Cups refers to emotions and the sense that someone has that they have achieved success and circumstances are going their way. It can also point to someone who seeks fame or attention for their accomplishments.

The Six of Wands is a similar card in some ways, because it refers to someone who gets recognition and praise for things that they do. It depicts a person that others might view as a kind of leader and someone who does positive things. Sometimes – but not always – it can refer to someone who inserts themselves into an investigation by acting as though they are helping, when their motives are really to try to cast suspicion elsewhere or get inside details about what the police are doing. This is a tarot card reading, and not everything in it is going to be accurate or interpreted correctly on my end, but I’m throwing that out as a possibility.

The Queen of Cups is showing a person who is likely an adult and demonstrates feminine types of attributes. Such a person is sensitive emotionally and can be easily wounded by criticism or harsh words. The Fool is the card I pulled in connection with the Queen. This could be conveying one of two things. The first is the possibility that Michael was lured away by this person, or someone connected to them directly, with the promise of an adventure or something along those lines. It could show him as going along and not questioning the situation at the time – blindly trusting, essentially. The second possibility is that the Fool refers to the person in the Queen position and reflects their motives – kidnapping a child because they want to have a family or something more nefarious, depending on other factors.

The last card is the Chariot. This card denotes movement and travel. It can sometimes represent transportation by vehicle and so it could be trying to drive home the point that he was taken quickly, by vehicle. The speed in which everything happened is probably complicating the investigation.

Question: What is happening with Michael Vaughan currently?

Row 1
The World (reversed) – 4 of Cups (reversed) – Knight of Wands (reversed)
Card pulled for the Knight of Wands (r): 5 of Cups (reversed)

Row 2
The Lovers (reversed) – 6 of Cups (reversed) – Ace of Cups

Row 3
2 of Wands – Magician (reversed) – King of Swords (reversed)
Card pulled for the King of Swords (r): 3 of Swords (reversed)


The World reversed suggests partial success and partial failure. Everything didn’t go exactly as planned.

The Four of Cups reversed is one where one or more people involved are trying to take advantage of possible opportunities and move beyond feelings pertaining to regret or not achieving all goals.

The Knight of Wands reversed is depicting a younger male energy (late teens, twenties, or thereabout) who might simply be an older person who acts immature for their age. However, this is someone who makes decisions impulsively and recklessly – something that has created some issues for the person or people involved.

The Five of Cups reversed, pulled in relation to the Knight reversed card, is showing someone who was recently experiencing grief or emotional upset, but has made it a point to begin moving on and letting go of the sadness or sorrow they recently felt.

The Lovers reversed could stand for a poor decision that is impacting all of this, or it can represent a relationship that is going wrong or went wrong recently. It could depict fighting or conflict that is occurring because of this situation.

The Six of Cups reversed shows someone trying to let go of the past. It might also point to childhood issues or abuse in someone’s life that is factoring into all of this somehow – even if only on a limited basis.

The Ace of Cups represents new beginnings and new relationships. I have no way of knowing if this is suggesting that Michael has entered into these because of his situation, or if it pertaining to the person or people involved.

The Two of Wands can show a person who is taking concrete steps toward a goal. The person or people are moving beyond merely planning or talking about possibilities. It can also indicate travel or a feeling of restlessness. People represented by this card might feel the urge to travel or move suddenly. It can also be a card of cooperation and so it does feel like more than one person is involved here. It is coming across like there are at least two people.

The Magician reversed is often a person who manipulates people and lies. Sometimes these people accomplish their goals by tricking people or creating a false sense of reality. It might link back to one or more people appearing to try to help with the case, but it is hard to know for sure.

The King of Swords reversed is coming through as an older and more mature (in terms of age and life experience) male. However, the age could vary widely in reality. This person manipulates situations and facts to get their way.

The Three of Swords reversed was pulled in connection with the King reversed. Either it is showing someone who is moving beyond a period of heartbreak or grief, or it is someone who is using their lies and manipulation to get someone else to overcome their pain or sadness.

I really don’t have a clear indication of Michael’s current status. Mostly, if at all accurate, the cards are giving more of a sense of who did it. They also seem to rule some people out. For example, I didn’t see anything pointing to the parents.
