Summary:

April Bailey is described as having disappeared after taking out the trash in Nashua, NH. She was said to have been wearing only a jacket, slippers, and pajamas.

Question: What circumstances caused April’s disappearance?

Row 1
Empress – Ace of Pentacles – Star (r)

Row 2
Magician – Page of Pentacles (r) – 10 of Swords
Card pulled for Page of Pentacles (r): 7 of Pentacles

Row 3
Hierophant – 4 of Wands – 7 of Wands

Reading

The reading is starting out with the Empress, Ace of Pentacles, and the Star reversed. It looks like April was in a place in her life where she was trying to initiate new beginnings, or important changes – particularly in areas involving money, family, and possibly work. Sometimes the Ace of Pentacles indicates new work or job opportunities. However, the Star reversed suggests that whatever she had in mind, or was hoping to accomplish, was not working out for her. She may have been feeling some degree of hopelessness about one or more aspects of her situation.

The Magician is a person who is resourceful. The card can carry positive or negative meaning, but the cards surrounding it suggest that it represents a person in April’s life – who is connected to her disappearance – who was (is) manipulative and dishonest.

The Page of Pentacles reversed, paired with the Seven of Pentacles, is suggesting that April received some bad news regarding money and/or career matters. The news pertains to something she had been working on or working to achieve – with the understanding that it was going to be a situation where she would not likely see positive results from the effort or work, she had been putting in for quite some time. Things were not going as she hoped or planned.

And the Ten of Swords shows a situation where she would have minimally felt that she hit rock bottom. It is always a concerning card to see in these readings – especially among other cards suggesting that people, forces, or situations were not quite working in someone’s favor – because it can point to actual destruction or ruin. Either way, it is all connected to this seemingly resourceful person and something that she had been working toward.

The Hierophant, Four of Wands, and Seven of Wands are interesting. In combination, they seem to suggest a situation where there was the desire on someone’s part – either April or someone else that she knew – to basically lay down roots and go a traditional route with something. My first thought is that it might relate to marriage or a desire to get married, or to make a situation or relationship more formal basically. But the Seven of Wands is showing a person who is on the defensive regarding these matters, or someone who feels under pressure or under attack in connection with them. In April’s case, it might mean a literal kind of attack.

Question: Who or what caused April’s disappearance?

Row 1
Star – Emperor – 9 of Pentacles

Row 2
9 of Cups (r) – 2 of Cups (r) – Devil

Row 3
Ace of Wands – 8 of Swords – 8 of Pentacles (r)

Reading:

The answer to the question as to who or what caused April’s disappearance begins with the Star in its upright position. What is interesting about this is that it is opposite of the mindset portrayed by the first reading, which makes me think that the who/what was not April herself – meaning it does not appear she disappeared of her own volition. The Emperor positions the person responsible as someone who is possibly a father figure – or an actual father – who had some degree of power and authority. I am using the past tense because April disappeared almost three years ago. The Nine of Pentacles indicates the person had a means of making money. Which circles back to the Magician in the first reading – a person who is resourceful in varying ways.

The Nine of Cups reversed is a card that can indicate addiction, arrogance, and self-hatred. It’s also an indicator that whatever this person was doing in their life, it was not causing them to feel fulfilled and it was probably creating some serious problems. The Two of Cups reversed is showing this person as either being in a bad relationship at the time of April’s disappearance or they had just gotten out of one. The Devil is another card that really makes me wonder about this person’s lifestyle because it can also point to addiction, secrecy, possible infidelity, cruelty, etc.

The person felt trapped by a situation or person in their life and probably had (have) psychological issues that are profound enough that other people know about them. Sometimes the Eight of Swords can point to someone who has been in jail or prison, but I don’t really know if that’s relevant here or not. It certainly could be – considering all of the other cards that make me think this person might have had shady dealings. The person might have been motivated to cause April’s disappearance by a desire to start new and free themselves somehow. But I don’t really see all that as having played out the way they wanted because the Eight of Pentacles reversed is usually someone who is in a dead-end job and has a bad reputation in general.

Oracle Reading

Question: What do we need to know about April’s disappearance?

The two oracle cards pulled are the Werewolf and the Three Fates. The Werewolf tells me there is someone connected to this who has two different ways of presenting themselves. Their innate nature is wild and probably looked upon as unconventional, as well as dangerous. But they don’t always show that side to them.

The Three Fates is saying that unlearned past lessons were behind April’s disappearance. Whether it was a person, relationship, or something that she had already learned was not good for her is hard to say. And there is a possibility that she did have plans to break the pattern or cut ties with whoever this refers to (if a person), but if so, it did not go as planned/hoped.

Question: What do we need to know about the person or people directly involved?

The Witch could be saying that the person involved weaves their own reality. They have a way of manipulating people and situations that usually works in their favor. The card can be positive or negative, but in this context, I’m placing the emphasis on the illusionary aspect in which this person creates a fake kind of reality for themselves and presents that to others.

Storm Angel is saying that this is a person with whom there was a lot of conflict and fighting. April did not have a stable and harmonious relationship with this person. This card also shows a situation where anything involving lying, deception, cheating, etc. was exposed. So it is reading like there was a situation where something significant, and troubling, was uncovered and then there was some kind of reaction to that which culminated in her disappearance.

Henry Fields

Disappearance: July 17, 2022
Location: Detroit, MI

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.

Question: What circumstances caused Henry’s disappearance?

Row 1
7 of Wands (r) – Chariot – Hanged Man

Row 2
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

Row 3
Ace of Pentacles – Ace of Wands – 7 of Cups (r)

Reading

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?

Row 1
2 of Pentacles (r) – The Star (r) – Death

Row 2
10 of Swords (r) – 8 of Swords (r) – 10 of Pentacles (r)

Row 3
3 of Cups (r) – Knight of Swords – 10 of Wands
Card pulled for Knight of Swords: 10 of Cups

Reading:

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.

Oracle Readings

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?

Nightsong

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.

Suzanne Morphew

Disappearance: 05/10/2022
Location: Chaffee County, Colorado

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.

Summary:

Suzanne Morphew is said to have gone out to ride her bike on May 10th of 2020 – on Mother’s Day. She has reportedly not been seen since.

Question: What happened to cause Suzanne to disappear?

Row 1
Star (r) – Knight of Pentacles – The Fool
Card pulled for Knight of Pentacles: Death (r)

Row 2
Strength (r) – Justice – 5 of Pentacles

Row 3
Temperance (r) – 2 of Wands (r) – 7 of Pentacles (r)

Reading:

When Suzanne disappeared, the Star reversed is showing that she wasn’t going through a great time in her life. She might have been feeling a sense of hopelessness, despair, and a lack of faith that everything would work out the way it should.

The Knight of Pentacles is a younger and more masculine type of energy (doesn’t mean it has to be a young adult or a male; that’s just the energy it projects) that is focused on the practical things in life. There’s an air of being stubborn and working slowly toward a goal. I’m not sure if this was a person in Suzanne’s life – or someone she came in contact with – or if it’s more of an energy surrounding what was going on with her. Death reversed, pulled in connection with the Knight card, could indicate a change that was forced upon someone – or an anticipated one that someone didn’t really want. It’s usually something major, such as the death of someone close or a divorce.

The Fool makes me think there was some kind of plan in place, or serious thoughts of a plan, for travel or something along those lines. I don’t know if Suzanne was planning to take a trip or embark on something new, but I’m really leaning toward some kind of travel here because the Two of Wands reversed – a card coming up – is showing the possibility of canceled plans or just poor planning in general. The Fool would be a lack of concrete planning or perhaps just not thinking everything through ahead of time. It could also be an attempt to put this all together without the benefit of having time to really plan for it.

Strength reversed is another card that makes me think that Suzanne was going through something significant and emotionally difficult. It’s another card that can indicate depression, self-esteem issues, and overall insecurity. It is also something people might get when they know they need to make a big change, but they have a lot of fear about it. Or resistance to it as Death reversed could suggest as well.

The Justice card makes me also think that maybe there was something going on with Suzanne that was coming down on her in terms of accountability – or cause-and-effect. Everyone’s actions have consequences. The card could also point to some kind of legal issue or dispute – or one that was anticipated if Suzanne were to make the changes that the other cards are suggesting she felt she needed to make, but that she also feared. It’s a major force in all of this. One of many triggers, perhaps.

The Five of Pentacles is another card suggesting some financial or material difficulty that might have been occurring or looming in the near future. It can come up when a person does not feel they have the support they need or feel left out in the cold, so to speak. I have seen it come up in situations where there is a divorce or a breakup of a relationship. We have multiple cards pointing this way and so that could be the source of her depression, as well as the indication of some kind of possible legal situation.

Temperance reversed is a card showing imbalance and conflict. Whatever was going on kind of reached a boiling point. There was a rapidly escalating situation.

The Two of Wands reversed can be equated to not taking action or canceling plans. If Suzanne was seriously considering doing something in particular – travel-related or otherwise – there was a sudden cancelation of these plans. I don’t know if it was because something happened to her or if something threw a wrench into whatever it was that she was hoping to do, but something went wrong there.

The Seven of Pentacles reversed is one of those cards that comes up when someone doesn’t finish a project they started or doesn’t follow through with something – either because they choose not to or because they are stopped from doing so by something or someone else. So did someone find out what she was planning to do and react to it? I’m truly not sure. But there was a lot of conflict, despair, and uncertainty in Suzanne’s life around the time she disappeared. I would expect people close to her to have knowledge of that. It was too significant to hide, I would think.

There are enough pentacles that cropped up to make me think there were some money problems or issues connected to all this as well. Or ones that exacerbated the situation beyond what it already was.

Question: Who caused Suzanne’s disappearance?

Row 1
9 of Pentacles – Queen of Swords (r) – Knight of Cups
Card pulled for Queen of Swords (r): Queen of Wands (r)
Card pulled for Queen of Wands (r): 4 of Swords (r)
Card pulled for the Knight of Cups: Ace of Swords (r)

Row 2
6 of Swords (r) – Knight of Wands – 7 of Wands (r)
Card pulled for Knight of Wands: Page of Cups (r)
Card pulled for Page of Cups (r): High Priestess (r)

Row 3
Tower (r) – 6 of Cups (r) – The Hermit

Reading

There are a lot of influences here and while that doesn’t mean there were multiple people involved in whatever happened to Suzanne, it’s important to consider that a lot of different people have pieces of the larger puzzle that are needed to solve it.

The Nine of Pentacles is usually associated with people that are independent and have the ability to be financially independent. There’s a sense of age and maturity that often comes with this card, though not always.

There are two Queen cards in the reversed position. The Queen of Swords reversed can be someone making accusations without necessarily having all of the information, or someone who can be prone to spreading gossip. The Queen of Wands reversed is someone who might be behaving in a jealous manner or a malicious one – someone with a bad temper and someone possibly prone to acting impulsively. It can be someone acting as a bully and someone who is extremely manipulative. While the Queen of Swords reversed energy is someone who approaches their fights using words, the Queen of Wands reversed is more action-oriented. Do one of these represent Suzanne, with the other representing someone else? Or are we looking at two totally different people creating drama for Suzanne?

The Four of Swords reversed is a card that makes me think that Suzanne was trying to find a way of coping with – or resolving – the situation she was in. But I would think that she must have felt under attack in a lot of ways, and this was definitely impacting her mental state in terms of what she felt equipped to handle.

The Knight of Cups is a younger, masculine type of energy that could represent a romantic type of proposal or a person that made that kind of gesture. The Ace of Swords reversed is some kind of idea or initial plan that for whatever reason was not coming to fruition. It was one in the really early stages of planning, and possibly not really vocalized to a lot of people yet. But it can also represent a situation where a person is not seeing what is really going on because their perception is clouded or they have been led to think one thing, when really something else is happening.

The Six of Swords reversed is someone seeing that trouble is coming and trying to delay the inevitable. It probably pertains to whoever is responsible for Suzanne’s disappearance because the main question pertains to them. But it can also be a card showing someone as feeling trapped by someone and as though they have nowhere left to run, as well as a cancelation of travel plans. It’s like if someone were confronted and cornered, is how it comes across. Literally trapped is what I keep getting.

See, I really think Suzanne had some kind of plan to leave somewhere or go on a trip or something, and someone put a stop to those plans. It feels like more than just her planning to end a relationship too. There are a lot of cards indicating travel that is either canceled or does not occur for whatever reason.

The Knight of Wands was probably someone in her life, or that she came in contact with, that she viewed positively, who was adventurous and could be romantic. It’s also someone who could be impulsive and maybe a bit of a flirt with more than one person. So I think maybe Suzanne felt swept off her feet by someone like this. But then the Page of Cups reversed is showing her as possibly receiving some kind of bad news from or about or in connection with this person. Another thing that I don’t love about this card is the hint at a situation where someone might have behaved vindictively or in a way that was exploitative in reference to this person. So is this a matter of someone different reacting to whatever was happening with this Knight person? Or is this trying to say the Knight person is someone else to consider? It can get confusing when there is so much going on in a person’s life when they disappear, or when something happens to them.

The High Priestess reversed is suggesting there were secrets involving this Knight person. There was also a sense of nostalgia. I’m not sure what that means exactly, but there is someone here that was involved in Suzanne in a way that wouldn’t have been as obvious to everyone as a known boyfriend or husband. Maybe infidelity or a secret relationship of sorts. There is this sense of secrets and betrayal from multiple sides? Or at least, that feels like it was the perception on the part of more than one person. Sometimes the High Priestess reversed is an obvious or a hidden enemy as well. Perhaps someone trusted with secrets who shouldn’t have been.

The Tower reversed is one of those cards where there is a resistance to change, but also this sense of impending doom. It’s like waiting for the other shoe to drop. Maybe the person responsible is kind of surprised they haven’t been caught or thought they would go down for this early on, and then didn’t. Maybe they were already considered a person of interest with the police, but police didn’t pursue it further. It is basically a situation that was a near disaster for this person. They almost got caught and they are concerned they might still.

The Six of Cups reversed is a weird one to come up. It’s someone who is stuck in the past. It’s usually the distant past. Someone that gets stuck on things that happened in their much earlier past. It can also be someone who is trying to rid themselves of the past or let go of it. This almost certainly pertains to whoever is responsible for Suzanne’s disappearance, but I don’t really know how this one fits in here exactly. Is it saying that Suzanne goes way back with this person? Or is it something else altogether?

The Hermit shows this person as kind of going off and doing their own thing. In a way they are probably reflecting on everything and contemplating it all. There is a sense of isolation and the seeking of solitude to process everything. They’ve disconnected from people – even though those around them might not realize it fully.

I wish I could say that I think Suzanne is okay, but if I were just to go by these readings then I would say I highly doubt that. But these are just tarot readings and as always, I hope I’m wrong in this interpretation. Time will tell on this one though.

And that’s the thing that I want to stress here… I do think time will reveal what really happened.

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.

Summary:

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

Reading

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)

Reading:

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.

Michael Kitchener

Disappearance: 10/22/2021

Summary:

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

Reading

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

Reading:

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.

Curtis Thorne

Disappearance: 08/06/2021
Location: Saint John, 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.

Summary:

Curtis Thorne was last seen on August 6th of 2021. I don’t have details beyond that about what happened to him or what is thought to have happened to him.

Question: What circumstances caused Curtis’ disappearance?

Row 1
The Lovers – Emperor (r) – Justice (r)

Row 2
Page of Cups (r) – Ace of Pentacles (r) – 4 of Pentacles (r)
Card pulled for the Page of Cups (r): 3 of Wands (r)

Row 3
Magician – Empress – 5 of Cups (r)

Reading

The first card for this reading is the Lovers. This card usually represents one of two things. Either it refers to a romantic relationship/partnership between Curtis and another person, or it is referencing an important decision that Curtis was faced with making.

The Emperor reversed is showing me a person that was involved in his life at the time of his disappearance that comes across as an older male. The age and gender can vary, but I usually get this card when it pertains to a male. In the reversed position, this is someone who abuses their power, is a control freak, and behaves recklessly. It’s just an overall oppressive and negative influence.

Justice reverse tells me that something shady happened. Something unfair or unjust happened in reference to Curtis’ disappearance. It’s reading like a foul play card. Remember, though, that these are just tarot readings. They aren’t intended to be taken as fact. So I’m not saying he is deceased, but I am saying that something bad happened here.

The Page of Cups reversed can represent a message or a kind of messenger. It usually relates to emotional matters or news. In the reversed position, it is a negative message or interaction. It can represent a broken marriage proposal, an obsession, an exploitative situation, etc.

The Three of Wands reversed was pulled for the Page of Cups reversed. It’s looking like the news, or the interaction represented by the Page card might have had something to do with travel or a long-distance type of relationship. In some cases, it can just refer to a sense of being unhappy with the decisions that a person has made. However, it is connected to that Page card and so the meaning is related to that specifically.

Ace of Pentacles reversed is showing me serious money troubles. It’s a card of poor financial control or delays in getting money that was needed or expected. It also indicates a lack of planning that can put a person in a financial bind.

The Four of Pentacles reversed is a card that I see when someone is trying to rid themselves of things or people. It can be a positive card in that it sometimes refers to a person being generous and giving gifts to people. However, it can also be a negative card that refers to financial losses, gambling, or debts.

The last row of cards is a little mystifying in that I’m not sure exactly how they fit in here. The Magician is a card of resourcefulness and skill. Ordinarily, the Empress is a positive card. But I’ve seen it appear to take on an alternate meaning in these types of readings and so I’ll see what the next reading says and then circle back to this. The Five of Cups reversed is a card of letting go. It’s usually linked to emotions or things that hold people back psychologically, such as regret or grief.

Question: Who or what caused Curtis’ disappearance?

Row 1
Strength – 8 of Swords – 4 of Cups (r)

Row 2
6 of Pentacles – 9 of Pentacles – 6 of Cups

Row 3
10 of Cups (r) – The Fool (r) – Knight of Pentacles (r)
Card pulled for the Knight of Pentacles (r): The Magician

Reading:

Strength is usually a card about overcoming difficulties, having the courage of one’s convictions, and gathering inner strength. Sometimes it is a card indicating that there is something going on behind the scenes – someone pulling strings, basically. Either way, it’s a card that comes up when a situation or problem calls for courage or inner strength and this suggests that there was some kind of serious problem that Curtis was faced with that he did want to have the strength to confront.

The Eight of Swords is showing someone who is trapped and feels like they were backed into a corner. Since this reading does not appear to present an actual person until the end of it, it is reading like it pertains to Curtis specifically. It can definitely be a victimization card and/or one that shows a person as being silenced.

The Four of Cups reversed is a card that is all about moving on and seizing opportunities.

The Six of Pentacles is a card that depicts someone who has the ability to give as doing so to someone who is in need. Did someone help Curtis out with money? The first reading indicated the possibility (likelihood) of financial problems and could be hinting at some kind of debt that Curtis owed. I don’t necessarily mean monetary, but that’s among the possibilities.

The Nine of Pentacles is a card that usually represents financial freedom, abundance, and/or independence. If there is another person involved in Curtis’ disappearance somehow, it is reading like they were better off than him financially – at least at the time that all this happened. Because I have the Six of Pentacles showing me someone in a giving position and then next to it is a card that shows someone who has achieved some degree of wealth or financial independence. The first reading, which focused on Curtis, did not present him in this light and so it sounds like this is someone else.

The Six of Cups is kind of like a reminiscing about childhood card. It can be positive memories about childhood or in some cases may refer to matters relating to childhood abuse.

And the above card is important here because the Ten of Cups reversed is showing that there was trouble at home. Now when I say there were problems at home, I don’t necessarily mean within the residence where he lived necessarily. What I’m really trying to say is that I think that someone that was close to Curtis, and knew him on an emotional level, does know what happened here. They know details about how and why he is missing.

The Fool reversed, in the context of this reading, represents carelessness or recklessness. The first reading talked about either a romantic partnership (the Lovers) or an important decision, and this card almost seems to be saying that a choice was made – maybe hastily and without enough thought. I don’t know if Curtis made it or if the person that seems to have knowledge about all of this made it though.

Finally, we have the Knight of Pentacles reversed and the Magician as the card pulled in reference to it. The Knight of Pentacles is a person or energy that typically comes across as masculine and on the younger adult side of things. It is someone who has been irresponsible, possibly disloyal, and/or someone who has made broken promises. But the Magician is a card representing resourcefulness, skill, and willpower. Much of the meaning behind these cards hinges on who is represented by the Knight card. Minimally, the two cards are showing someone who probably used whatever skills or resources they had to cause Curtis’ disappearance.

The financial matters stand out prominently, as does the suggestion that there was someone providing support or material assistance of some kind. If there is someone who can be pinpointed as having done this for Curtis, then the reading seems to point to them having answers about all this. No matter what happened here, there is a person – besides Curtis – who knows. I’m not saying they did something wrong either. I’m just saying they have answers to critical questions here.

Randy Davis

Disappearance: 1/21/2016
Location: Aynor, SC

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.

Summary:

Randy Davis disappeared on January 21st of 2016. In May of 2017, he was found deceased in a heavily wooded area near Horse Pen Bay Road.

Question: Who or what caused Randy’s death?

Row 1
Hierophant (reversed) – Magician (reversed) – King of Wands
Card pulled for the King of Wands: The Sun (reversed)

Row 2
7 of Pentacles (reversed) – Devil (reversed) – 9 of Pentacles

Row 3
Judgement – The Emperor (reversed) – Hanged Man (reversed)

Reading:

There is more than one person involved in this and they are all consistent with adult male energy. The Hierophant reversed is showing that the people involved are non-conformists. With the Magician reversed being the second card, I am going to say it is coming across as though these people are involved in some type of trade or industry that goes against the norm. The first thing that comes to mind is drugs, but there are multiple possibilities. The Magician reversed tells me that Randy might have been tricked into going somewhere and/or meeting someone. The Magician reversed is usually a resourceful person who is using their skills and knowledge in negative or harmful way. It also depicts someone who is being deceitful and who basically cons people.

The primary person involved, in terms of who executed whatever happened here is the person in the King of Wands position. It’s upright so this is someone that would probably come across as charismatic or likeable to those they want to make a good impression on. It’s also someone who might lose their temper easily and come across as passionate about things that interest or matter to them. They are also action-oriented so this isn’t someone that says they will do things and doesn’t; they do what they say or threaten they will do. I pulled the Sun reversed in connection with this person, and because I know that Randy was found deceased, I know this card represents his death. It’s telling me that this person did the actual killing. If someone is saying this wasn’t a murder, they are wrong.

There are monetary or financial motives behind all this. The Seven of Pentacles reversed is a card that can point to bad business or financial decisions, as well as delays. It pertains to one or more people involved in Randy’s death because I asked the cards a who or what question. It’s possible he owed someone money and if he did, this would probably not have been a recent debt. It feels like it might have been something already in existence that was kind of hanging over Randy’s head. So if someone who knows him is aware of a specific person, or group of people, that might have felt he owed them then those people are worth looking into.

The Devil reversed is definitely making me feel like this all pertains to drugs or some type of business that is harmful. I think there is at least one person involved in all this who is not who they seem. They hide this really dark side of themselves. Whatever you see on the surface with this person – however bad that might be, this person is actually worse than that.

The Nine of Pentacles is another card that points to a material or financial motive behind all of this. It’s telling me that the person or people involved operate some kind of business. I keep thinking drugs, but it could include any number of illegal activities. It could perhaps involve multiple illegal activities because I am getting the impression from these cards that whatever is going on here is well established. It would be difficult to bring these people down. They have a lot of influence and power – even if they are known as criminals.

Judgement is telling me that even though these people have power, they are fallible. They will answer for this, but I can’t guarantee it will be in a traditional way.

The Emperor reversed is one of the cards that shows me there is at least one person involved in this who has a lot of authority and power. The Emperor is usually a father-type figure and so they are likely someone older. They are controlling, rigid, and tyrannical – that’s the gist of how this person is and how they operate. This is probably the person who set all this in motion, and it’s the person that is probably keeping people from saying too much. This could potentially be someone with law enforcement connections. I am not saying they are law enforcement, or that the connections are immediately local, but there is some kind of influence and/or protection here – for lack of a better word. Some degree of protection against being held criminally responsible.

The Hanged Man reversed is telling me not to expect all of the answers to come quickly or easily with this one. The Emperor reversed is the main reason why this is true. Another thing to consider, and I want to be really clear about this, I would be very careful about trying to get to the bottom of this by going out there and riling these people up. I am always in favor of justice, and believe people should pay for their crimes, but this whole thing feels dangerous.

Question: What circumstances caused Randy’s death?

Row 1
8 of Swords (reversed) – 9 of Cups (reversed) – 3 of Wands (reversed)

Row 2
9 of Wands – 10 of Swords – Knight of Swords
Card pulled for the Knight of Swords: King of Cups
Card pulled for the King of Cups: Queen of Cups
Card pulled for the Queen of Cups: Six of Wands

Row 3
7 of Wands – Temperance (reversed) – Empress (reversed)

Reading

I wanted to delve a little more into the circumstances surrounding Randy’s death. The Eight of Swords reversed is suggesting to me that Randy was trying to get away from something – or someone. Meaning, he either tried to cut ties with them or he took that kind of action and it triggered them. But I see him as trying to become free of them prior to his death.

But the Nine of Cups reversed tells me that his desire for, or attempt to get freedom, caused major issues for him. This is a card associated with deep unhappiness, misery, nightmares, etc. However, it’s a card that also shows someone as wanting to make positive changes after walking a hard road. But there were obstacles.

The Three of Wands reversed is relaying a sense of unhappiness with Randy’s decisions. I think he was experiencing depression and he was trying to get away from his past – and certain people in it. I don’t mean he was trying to run from them by physically disappearing. I just mean that it looks like there was an attempt to – or a hope of – breaking ties.

The Nine of Wands shows me that Randy was really worn down by the circumstances of his life. He was trying to push forward though and get to his objective – which I think was to straighten out aspects of his life. He had an intention there and it was keeping him moving toward his ultimate goal.

The Ten of Swords is about as bad as it can get so these attempts to make changes resulted in his total ruin. I think that whatever he was doing to cut ties, or get away, was being read the wrong way too. I can’t quite pinpoint what that means. It’s like he was looked upon with suspicion when he probably only wanted to go his own way and be done with certain people. That is not how they saw it though and I think they felt he owed them – money, loyalty, something.

The reading is showing me three people. One is probably a younger adult male, or someone who acts like one, and the other two are possibly a couple: King of Cups and Queen of Cups. These people feel that whatever they did was successful – that they accomplished what they intended and that they did it in a way that would keep them from being held accountable. But Judgement is an accountability card, so they are incorrect about that. I don’t see them going through the legal system and so whatever happens with regard to that might be something else entirely.

But it’s important to keep in mind there are multiple people involved in all of this.

The Seven of Wands is where I see Randy as having been accused of doing something he didn’t do. He tried to defend himself. He tried to set the record straight. But no one was having it.

Temperance reversed is telling me a couple of interesting things. The first is that the conflict and problems he was having with at least one – probably more – of these people were probably known to other people. What I mean is, it wasn’t a huge secret that no one knew about. There’s definitely probably talk in the background amongst some of the people who knew him about what really happened here. Second, I could be reading this completely wrong here, but I think he was killed in such a way that it could have been written off as an accident. I don’t know. That’s coming from me and not the cards, so I could very well be wrong there. I just feel that his death was not done in a way that made it clearcut in terms of what it really was.

The Empress reversed could go many ways here. On one hand, it could suggest that Randy knew or lived with one of the people connected to all this. It’s a card that can mean there is trouble stemming from, or connected to, a person’s home life. On the other, it could point to there being a problematic female involved in all this – who might inadvertently give some information away about what happened. Maybe she’s putting misinformation out there also and trying to point people’s attention elsewhere. I’m not entirely sure. The meaning behind this card might make more sense to someone who knew Randy.

So in summary, I think he was murdered. I think it was over something like drugs or money. I think there are some nasty people involved. And I would be really careful about poking around to try to find answers. My advice is to be careful with that.

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.

Summary:

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

Reading:

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)

Reading

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.

Jamie Valdez

Disappearance: June of 2020
Location: Booneville, Arkansas

Summary:

Jamie Valdez disappeared in June of 2020. Though the exact date of his disappearance is unclear, it has been reported that his vehicle was found abandoned in Sugar Grove, AR on June 17th of 2020. His family, and his wife, have not heard from him since.

Question: Who or what caused Jamie’s disappearance?

Row 1
Empress (reversed) – Knight of Swords – Hierophant (reversed)
Card pulled for the Knight of Swords: 6 of Wands

Row 2
The Moon – Page of Swords (reversed) – 8 of Pentacles
Card pulled for the Page of Swords (r): 9 of Pentacles (reversed)

Row 3
7 of Wands – 5 of Wands – Justice

Reading:

The first thing this reading is conveying to me is that there was trouble in his home life – or home environment. It can sometimes point to a pregnancy issue or an unwanted pregnancy, though this is not always necessarily the case. It can also show someone in a relationship where one person is overbearing. The Empress reversed shows the state of his home life as a prominent issue/contributor.

The Knight of Swords is showing me a person consistent with a younger male adult. It could be an older male, but if it is then it is someone who acts or behaves – on mental and emotional levels – as though they are younger. This is a person who speaks what is on their minds. They come across at times as loud and opinionated. They may show tendencies to speak or act impulsively. It can also be a person who kind of goes against the norm, or against the flow. The Six of Wands shows that this person likely seeks recognition and attention. They might even be someone who gets it – for reasons that are not made clear here.

The Hierophant reversed can go a few ways. Since it is in the first row, combined with the Empress reversed, then the likely meaning pertains to Jamie’s marriage. It can be indicative of problems or a separation – or plans and/or discussion about these kinds of matters. It can also refer to someone who is a nonconformist and goes against tradition. So it does not necessarily pertain to his marriage, but there are other cards in this reading that seem to suggest a higher probability that it does.

The Moon tells me that things with Jamie – and in particular, quite possibly his home life – were not as they seemed. This card comes up in these types of readings when there has been deception concerning the narrative given about what happened or may have happened to someone. It also points to hidden dangers and potential secret enemies. I will probably have a better idea what else this refers to after the second reading.

The Page of Swords reversed is showing me that there was a message sent, or something that was said (or texted, emailed, etc.) that was negative and pertained to Jamie. I don’t know if he received this message or if it was merely about him and it kicked off the circumstances. Because it is reversed, I would expect the intent behind it to be more malicious, vindictive, or intended to cause harm (emotional or otherwise) than I would see if this particular card appeared in its upright position. The Nine of Pentacles reversed, pulled in connection with the Page reversed, is telling me that the message likely pertained to something material or financial in nature. There is also a possibility of a theft or some adverse event.

Because the question is seeking to find out who or what caused Jamie’s disappearance, the Eight of Pentacles could refer to different people. If Jamie disappeared on his own accord, then it refers to him. If one or more people were involved in his disappearance, then it refers to at least one of those people. The card comes up when a person works in a particular trade or has an area of expertise. Sometimes it comes up to communicate that a person has started a new job or has become self-employed in some capacity. I don’t know precisely what this means here, but it might make much more sense to someone who knows more about Jamie and the people in his life.

The Seven of Wands shows a situation where someone is defensive about something. Again, who it pertains to depends on who is involved here. But it is linked to the message or interaction discussed previously and it shows someone as getting upset about it – feeling defensive and potentially as though they are being backed into a corner. In some cases, it can refer to a person as being under attack or being blamed or accused of something.

The Five of Wands shows that there was ongoing conflict between Jamie and whoever else was involved. This reading does not make me feel as though this is a matter of Jamie disappearing on his own. I can’t completely rule that out – because of the nature of these readings and the potential for error – but on an intuitive level that is not how this situation is coming across. So with this card, it is showing me conflict, fighting, and there could be an underlying degree of competitiveness that comes with this card – or clashes of ego.

Justice really gets my attention here because this card suggests that someone has been wronged and that the situation will eventually have a just outcome. Basically, if someone did something to Jamie and hurt him or something that crosses ethical or legal bounds then this card is communicating that the appropriate person or people will be held accountable. I do not have an idea of when or what circumstances will bring that about. I will say there is an air of impulsiveness and reactionary conflict to all this – that I am picking up on – so if something really bad happened here then I highly doubt it was well planned.

Since the Knight of Swords is a person who tends to talk a lot and is opinionated, the odds that they have or will say too much to someone about what has happened are really good. This is the kind of person I would expect to have time work against them in that the more comfortable they become that they will not get in trouble, the more likely they are to start saying things that contradict former statements or that outright provide more details about what really transpired here.

Question: What circumstances caused Jamie’s disappearance?

Row 1
7 of Wands – Death – 4 of Swords (reversed)

Row 2
10 of Wands – 8 of Cups (reversed) – 4 of Wands

Row 3
6 of Wands – 5 of Wands – 4 of Cups

Reading

The Seven of Wands came up before, but in this reading, it refers to the circumstances surrounding Jamie’s disappearance. It still carries the same meaning. Someone was – of felt they were – under attack or blamed for something. It shows someone as being defensive and trying to stand their ground, so to speak. It can also point to someone who is behaving in a way that is territorial. It is not unusual – in missing person’s readings – for a card like this to represent the use of force or an attack.

Death is a card that is often assumed to represent a literal and physical death. However, typically it does not (there are exceptions, and it depends on surrounding cards). In this case, it seems to convey a situation that changed dramatically for some reason. It is as though there was some kind of major upheaval that occurred.

The Four of Swords reversed is showing someone who has been in the process of finding mental strength, and perhaps emerging from some difficult or dark times. My understanding is that Jamie had some addiction problems at one time, but this card supports what has been reported about how that was a part of his past.

The Ten of Wands shows someone who felt overburdened and extremely stressed out. It is someone who felt they were carrying the brunt of the responsibilities and that whatever situation pertains to all of this felt like an uphill battle. But it shows someone as continuing to try to overcome those difficulties and move forward or make progress.

The Eight of Cups reversed is showing me that Jamie was in a situation that he probably knew he should leave or break free from, but for emotional reasons he just couldn’t do it. Another aspect of this card is pretending that a person is happy or in a decent place in their life – when they are really having a difficult time. Some of this stems from a fear of abandonment and a reluctance to move on from something that is known and familiar.

The Four of Wands can represent some kind of gathering or celebration. It can represent teamwork. It can also represent some pride in one’s success or accomplishments. It’s very difficult to say what this refers to specifically here.

The Six of Wands is showing someone as getting positive recognition for something. It is immediately followed by the 5 of Wands, which makes me wonder if this was a trigger or something that might have created a sense of competition between two or more people. The Five of Wands came up in the first reading so it’s evident there was some ongoing conflict going on here. Another aspect of the Five of Wands is that it shows people as having different agendas. People are in conflict because they want different things, or they have different beliefs. It’s indicative of ongoing opposition.

The Four of Cups represents missed opportunities and disillusion. It can convey a sense of apathy or an overall negative viewpoint.

Question: What else do we need to know about Jamie’s disappearance to understand what happened to him?

Row 1
The World – The Fool (reversed) – The Sun (reversed)

Row 2
King of Wands – 6 of Cups (reversed) – 7 of Swords
Card pulled for the King of Wands: Four of Wands

Reading:

The World shows a cycle as being completed. In these readings, there are two main reasons this card comes up. The first is to communicate that the case will be solved – the answers will come. The second is sometimes to show me that a person might not be alive. I really cannot stress enough that I don’t feel confident using these readings to determine if someone is alive or deceased. Once in a while they come across clearly this way, but that is rarely the case.

The Fool reversed shows me someone involved here who acted recklessly and exercised poor judgement. There is a sense of intention with regard to this that points to something that exceeds the seriousness of a person walking away from their life on their own. It can also depict someone who behaves irrationally.

The Sun reversed shows there is some degree of blindness to the truth here. Also, it could be interpreted as the literal opposite of its upright meaning, which is essentially: vitality, positivity, freedom, etc.

The King of Wands and the Four of Wands is throwing me because it can be interpreted in two extremely different ways. So before I get to that, the Six of Cups reversed might show that there are past issues that played a role in all this – perhaps someone was abused as a child, or someone was working on resolving those issues. I’m not sure. But it typically shows someone as progressing beyond those types of problems and trying to move forward.

The Seven of Swords is a person, or people, who has done something bad and gotten away with it. It can be more than one thing, but the main aspect of this card to understand is that the behaviors it conveys are not good ones and may include cheating, stealing, excessive lying, and manipulation. There is a sense of cunning that comes with this card. While I find that people this card is often attached to are on the impulsive side, they tend to have put thought into what they are doing and how they might get away with it. I’m not sure how to explain that better except to say it can be challenging to trip these people up – though possible.

In getting back to the King of Wands…I see there being two possible distinct possibilities. In my mind, one feels a lot more consistent with the overall impressions I got from these readings than the other. I am going to put them both out there with the hope that someone close to Jamie can ascertain which one makes the most sense and is the most consistent with what they personally know about this situation.

The first possibility is one I am not currently buying into. It is that Jamie disappeared on his own because responsibilities or problems got to be too much. There are a lot of cards that I feel contradict this possibility, but it is one I can’t completely discount because of the Four of Wands. Here’s the issue with that card. It has many different meanings, but one of them pertains to reunions and homecomings. So if Jamie disappeared on his own, then this suggests he will return. But that would mean that all of the other cards are merely communicating the contributing factors. This would mean the Seven of Swords would have to represent Jamie and I have to say that does NOT feel consistent with the feelings I have gotten about him throughout all of these readings. He’s not coming across as that kind of person to me. If that is true, and he isn’t that kind of person, then it becomes much easier to completely discount this possibility.

The second possibility is the one that intuitively makes more sense to me, and that is that he disappeared due to a conflict with someone else. The first reading suggests an adult male is involved and the third one does as well. If the adult male is not Jamie, then it is another person. All of this is linked to conflict he was having in his life and oppositional forces that he was up against. That is true, regardless of which possibility proves accurate. The Seven of Swords is one of many cards that has me leaning in favor of this possibility. I think there was one or more fights over something specific and that it may have either gotten out of hand, or someone might have done something they shouldn’t have. If another person is involved, then there is a possibility their identity would be revealed in connection to some kind of celebration (potentially a wedding or something along those lines) – at some point in the future (because of the two appearances of the Four of Wands). The appearance of Justice at the end of the first reading is another reason why this possibility makes much more sense to me.

Haley Thomas

Disappearance: 07/25/2021
Location: Houlka, Mississippi

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.

Haley Thomas reading 1

Reading:

In response to my question regarding why Haley disappeared, the first card I pulled was Death. Death shows me there was something major that happened in her life to trigger these events.

The Page of Pentacles shows me that she may have gotten some kind of news that she perceived as positive. She might have been planning to pursue something – something pertaining to a job, school, somewhere else to live, or something else along those lines. I’m not sure what it was. But the Seven of Wands, in connection to the Page, tells me that for some reason she was put on the defensive. It’s almost reading like she wanted to do something but for whatever reason she felt like she would be under attack, or told she couldn’t do it, if other people knew. Maybe she didn’t even bring it up to anyone because she anticipated that they would not agree with it. It really could go either way.

There might have been a fight or argument about whatever all this pertained to because the Five of Wands reversed is showing the timeframe after the dust settled. It’s a card of compromising or agreeing upon some kind of solution. Sometimes it depicts a person who is worn down from trying to fight for something they want or believe in.

But the Nine of Wands reversed feels like its saying that whatever she had in mind that she wanted to do, she really did not want to compromise or give up on it. She might be someone with a bit of a stubborn side because this card is suggesting she really did not want to compromise on something.

The King of Cups reversed is suggesting there’s a man involved. This is someone who comes across as a friend but has ulterior motives. It’s a person who can also seem emotionally immature. The Four of Wands is the card I pulled in connection with him. The Four of Wands is a card that denotes some kind of celebration, party, or home coming. It’s connected to this individual though and I don’t really know what to make of it. Also, if this was someone Haley knew or was involved with, it would have been someone older than her. It’s coming across as an adult.

The Eight of Cups tells me that it was a situation she knew deep down she should leave behind and walk away from, but she chose not to do that. I don’t know if it was because of a fear of being abandoned by someone or if she was just ignoring signs telling her not to do something or what. This is such a strange reading for me because it’s hard to grasp what was going on here.

The Hierophant reversed could point to a few things. First, it could signify someone who is rebellious and unwilling to conform. Second, it can point to a broken marriage. Third, it could suggest there was a person in her life who was coming across as a mentor or adviser of some kind – someone who was presenting themselves as though they wanted to help her, when really they might not have had good intentions.

The Page of Cups is news or a message. It can be a romantic or marriage proposal. It has something to do with emotional matters of some kind. Sometimes it is a pregnancy or an engagement. Sometimes it comes up if a couple takes a next step and moves in together. Things like that It can also be something less significant, such as an admirer or someone who reveals they have a romantic interest.

Now what’s odd is that the Hermit reversed was pulled in connection with this card. Whatever was going on with the Page of Cups situation, it seems to have caused Haley to want to withdraw and become somewhat reclusive. Perhaps she did not feel this way about whoever else was directly involve in this, but there’s this sense of separation that I’m getting. Almost like to move forward with whatever it is she wanted to do she would have to do it on her own – without the support of people in her life. Was the person depicted by the King of Cups (reversed) asking her to run away to be with him? Is the issue that he is an adult, and she wasn’t?

The Ten of Swords concerns me. This is usually a card of backstabbing and betrayal. It depicts a rock bottom situation for Haley. Now, this is just a tarot reading and it does not tell me her ultimate fate. But I would say that, at a minimum, the situation did not unfold the way Haley thought it would. Something might have gone wrong for her, but I can’t tell for sure what it means in this reading.

Question: Who or what caused the disappearance of Haley Thomas?

Row 2

Reading

The first thing that jumps out at me is that I got the Page of Cups a second time, on the third row, and I got the Hermit reversed in connection with it – just as I did in the first reading. So that is a really big piece of this puzzle. Keep in mind that I don’t have background information on this situation and so I have to try to figure out the right meaning without any real context. These readings always make more sense to people close to the person missing, or knowledgeable about the disappearance in general.

The Three of Swords is showing me a heart break situation. I asked who or what was responsible for her disappearance and so it’s telling me that it has something to do with pain related to some of kind of relationship. It often pertains to romantic ones, but not always. It can be related to a falling out with a close family member or a friend.

The Two of Pentacles reversed is showing that the person involved was trying to balance aspects of their life – particularly ones of a financial and/or material nature.

The Seven of Cups reversed is showing me someone who either had few options in terms of what they could do in their overall situation, or someone who simply felt that way. It’s also a card depicting poor choices and so the limited options were probably connected to bad decisions this person made. Now keep in mind, I don’t know if this reading is referencing a person besides Haley, or if it is referring to her. If someone else is directly involved, it pertains to them. If she left on her own volition, then it could possibly pertain to her.

The Star reversed indicates a situation for the person responsible felt hopeless. Something happened, or was happening, that made the person feel as though they wouldn’t get what they wanted. This doesn’t always mean the situation was all bad; however, it does mean that the person viewed it as such.

The Queen of Wands is typically an adult female – though there are always exceptions. In its upright position it is showing me someone with positive attributes, though they probably have a bit of a hot temper and might be perceived as aggressive sometimes. The Three of Wands shows this person as possibly traveling or moving forward with plans that were made. The person in the Queen’s position was feeling like things were going well.

The Eight of Swords reversed is depicting a person who felt they achieved a sense of freedom or relief. The card usually suggests that a person has had to overcome something significant – or general hardships – to obtain that sense of freedom.

The Page of Cups, and the Hermit reversed, mean something important here. The problem is that they can be interpreted in different ways. It’s like someone proposed something to Haley, but the caveat was that it would require her to withdraw or isolate herself from other people. A scenario that might line up is if she met an adult and they told her she could do live with them, but it would require her to essentially become a recluse for obvious reasons (she’s a minor). If that’s not the scenario then it’s something like that in terms of there being something offered, but this downside of having to live a certain way if she did.

Temperance is a card depicting harmony. It’s a positive card that can point to someone doing things in moderation, gaining perspective, and potentially finding a strong relationship or what they feel is a soul mate.

The Ace of Wands reversed is a card that conveys the receiving of bad news, or the experiencing of delays, with regard to something a person was embarking on. To give an example, if a person became pregnant and was preparing to plan and move ahead with having a baby, this card might point to a difficult pregnancy or a miscarriage. I’m not saying this is what happened here, but it would be a scenario along those lines in terms of there being a new beginning that is delayed or significantly impeded. It could even be something as simple as she experienced a new beginning, by leaving to live with someone else secretly, but it didn’t turn out as well as she hoped. Or it wasn’t at all what she expected.

Question: What else do I need to know about what happened to Haley Thomas?

6 of Wands (reversed) – 8 of Cups (reversed) – 5 of Cups (reversed)

Haley Thomas reading 3

Reading:

The Six of Wands reversed depicts a situation that resulted in some kind of failure. It usually depicts a person feeling as though they are a disgrace, or that they will be. It’s a card of disappointment.

The Eight of Cups reversed came up in the first reading. This is a situation where someone probably should have walked away from a situation, but they didn’t. Part of the reason why people don’t do that is because they have a fear of being abandoned or alone. Or they fear change so they stay in a situation they shouldn’t.

The Five of Cups (reversed) shows a person letting go of past pain and sorry. If a person has been isolated or keeping to themselves due to depression, or grief over something, it can depict them returning to the world in terms of beginning to reach out to others.

I want to take the last card as a positive one, although the outcome card for the first reading is not a positive one. However, sometimes the Ten of Swords is more a reference to a person’s state of mind than it is to actual events that occur. It’s a tough card to read here. I would really like to figure out exactly what happened to Haley. My hope is that she is okay somehow, and that she will re-emerge at some point, but I simply can’t tell from these readings alone.
