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)


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)


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.


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

Question: Who or what caused Summer’s disappearance?

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Question: What circumstances caused Summer’s disappearance?

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jamie Valdez

Disappearance: June of 2020
Location: Booneville, Arkansas

Disclaimer: Tarot readings should not be taken as absolute claims that something did or did not happen. I only report the meaning of the cards, their relationships and the meaning in the context of those relationships, as well as intuitions I have based entirely on the cards presented in the reading. Tarot reading is an art and not a science.


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


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


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


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 reading 1


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.

Haley Thomas 2


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


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.

Leah Croucher

Leah Croucher reading 1


The reading is beginning with what appears to be an adult female, an adult male, and the Three of Cups. The Queen of Pentacles reversed is the female depicted in the first card. The attributes associated with this card in its reversed position are not generally positive ones. They describe a person who is jealous, controlling, can behave in ways that are dangerous and/or sociopathic, and tends to be manipulative. If such a person is a parent, they are possibly abuse or neglectful.

The King of Cups is a mature male that comes across as caring, sensitive, and kind. This is usually someone who will listen to people and show compassion. A person represented by this card is typically a good parent (when it depicts a father figure, which is not always the case).

The Three of Cups is showing that there was a celebration of sorts between these two – or something planned perhaps. The Three of Cups is often a happy card in terms of representing social gatherings, weddings, parties, etc. So these three cards were shown to me in reference to my question about who or what caused Leah’s disappearance. There is a possibility it is referring to a current or past marriage between them, or an engagement possibly.

The Queen of Cups is the next card within the first row. I don’t know who this represents specifically. It might represent Leah, though the Queen cards often depict someone a bit older (but not always) or someone that has knowledge about what happened – either as a witness to something or they may have been given information. Whatever it is, it is important because they are showing up so early on in the reading.

What’s weird is that the card associated with the Queen of Cups is one that typically depicts someone who has done one or more bad things that are bothering their conscience. Often, people in this position will confess what is on their mind to someone or else they will live with a strong compulsion to tell what they know. However, this is also a card that represents dishonesty and behaving in a manner that is two-faced. I’m not sure what that’s all about here but it all reads like this person has critical knowledge. I don’t know if the cards are implying that they are directly involved in any way or not.

The World, in these readings, is a card of cycles. In its upright position it usually depicts a situation or circumstance that has come full circle. However, what that means specifically is not known to me at this time.

The King of Wands reversed either represents a new person in this entire equation or depicts someone who has already been introduced in this reading acting in a manner consistent with the description of this card. In its reversed position, such a person is usually forceful, aggressive, vicious, manipulative, and capable of violence. Again, I don’t know if this is a new person or if this is someone depicted on the first row. This person is someone who probably exhibits violent tendencies and has a volatile temper. People who know this person would recognize these qualities about them.

The card pulled in relation to the King of Wands reversed was Death. The Death card in its upright position can represent major changes or upheavals. A lot of times these changes or disruptions ultimately lead to something better – or at least that appears to have been the perspective of the person in the King of Wands reversed position. So I can’t tell if whatever happened in regard to this card was positive or negative – since it is directly associated with that individual, versus the reading as a whole.

The Empress could have different meaning here, but I want to put it out on the table that it is possible Leah was pregnant. The Empress is a card of pregnancy and fertility, though it has other meanings as well.

The Five of Pentacles reversed is indicated a situation where someone feels as though they are reaching the end of a hardship – particularly a financial one or something that involved material matters. It can represent a means of employment or paying off debts.

The last row begins with the High Priestess reversed. This is a card of secrets, lies, betrayal, and sometimes hidden enemies or agendas. It can also represent someone with fertility issues, and this is the second card to address fertility in this reading.

The Seven of Pentacles reversed is a card that shows someone who doesn’t, or hasn’t, finished what they started. It is someone that didn’t properly follow through with something – either out of laziness or for other types of reasons.

The Hanged Man depicts a situation where someone feels trapped, restricted, and limited in their options. Sometimes it represents the process of letting go of something or making a sacrifice for a higher good or cause.

Question: What circumstances caused the disappearance of Leah Croucher?

Row 1
Fool (reversed) – 3 of Pentacles (reversed) – 4 of Pentacles (reversed)

Row 2
9 of Wands (reversed) – The Emperor – 8 of Swords

Row 3
5 of Swords – The Hermit – High Priestess (reversed)

Leah Croucher reading 2


After asking the cards to provide information about the circumstances that caused Leah’s disappearance, the first card to appear was the Fool reversed. This card describes a situation where someone like Leah might have taken a risk or acted without fully thinking about possible consequences – or the potential bad intentions of someone else.

The Three of Pentacles reversed comes up when there is a problem with cooperation or some kind of effort involving two or more people – often three, but not always. It also represents a person who hasn’t learned from their past mistakes and may not have any clear goals, or they may lack motivation in general.

The Four of Pentacles reversed is a card showing someone that sheds elements of their old life or experiences financial loss or instability. Sometimes the loss occurs because the person gives too much to other people or gives away things of value when they are not really getting anything in return.

In the second row, we have the Nine of Wands reversed, the Emperor, and the Eight of Swords. So the cards are pointing to there being an older male figure involved in all of this. The nine of Wands is showing someone refusing to compromise or refusing to let go of something. It is also another card indicating a lack of learning from past mistakes. It’s also a card indicating that a person does not feel they have a lot of fight left in them.

The Emperor, between these two cards appears to be the direct cause of someone going from feeling like they don’t have the energy to continue to fight, and feeling trapped or helpless in a situation as evidenced by the Eight of Swords. The Eight of Swords can sometimes even refer to actual imprisonment, as well as feeling silenced or paralyzed by fear.

The Emperor is a person who has some degree of authority or power – for whatever reason. This might help to shield them from scrutiny or suspicion so that is something to consider when trying to identify the man involved in this. It is an older male and typically someone established in terms of their life and/or career.

The Five of Swords indicates that a significant conflict occurred. At a minimum, it represents a volatile type of argument or altercation. However, at its worse it can represent criminal acts such as murder or rape.

The Hermit suggests that someone wanted to walk away from the conflict – or get away from it. It is a card of self-reflection and introspection so it can show someone thinking hard about a situation and pondering what it all means. Because the question was about Leah, cards such as this one likely represents how she was feeling and reacting to the circumstances surrounding her.

The High Priestess reversed came up in Leah’s first reading and it is back again for the second. It’s a card that can point to a few different types of situations. First, it can represent secrets, betrayal, and agendas that are not known to everyone involved. In some cases it can refer to fertility issues. In others it can represent a person experiencing a blocked sense of intuition. It comes up a lot of times in a situation where someone has a gut feeling that they should or should not do something, but for whatever reason they doubt it and do not heed the call.

Jennifer Kesse

Disappearance: 01/23/2006
Location: Orlando, Florida

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.


Jennifer Kesse was 24 years old when she reportedly vanished on January 23rd of 2006. It is unknown exactly what time she disappeared or what she was doing when it happened. Jennifer still remains missing.

Jennifer Kesse reading 1


The first card in the reading that asks who or what caused Jennifer’s disappearance is death. The card usually depicts a major change, shift, or upheaval. Often it is one that allows for positive events to subsequently occur; however, there are cards later in the reading that point to a disruptive event that was harmful.

Sometimes tarot cards are literal in their depictions – especially when trying to clue into what might have happened to people and where these events occurred. In this case, the Chariot likely refers to either evidence associated with a vehicle, or the occurrence of events inside – or in association with – a vehicle.

The Empress is a card that usually represents abundance, fertility, and other positive elements of life and existence. In this case, it could speak to the motive in that Jennifer was an attractive woman and her femininity likely caused a lot of people to take notice of her.

The disappearance appears linked to an encounter that Jennifer had with an individual who demonstrated the attributes associated with the Knight of Cups card. These characteristics would be associated with a younger male adult who came across as sensitive, helpful, and gentlemanly. The card can also come up as an indication of a romantic proposal of sorts. Since the Knight of Wands reversed is the card pulled in connection with the Knight of Cups, it makes me think that one of two scenarios is likely here. The first possibility is that the person fitting the description of the Knight of Wands reversed had some kind of romantic interest in Jennifer that was communicated, but not well received. The reason I say this is because the Page of Swords reversed was pulled for the Knight of Wands reversed and this indicates bad news or a negative communication/interaction that might have occurred.

The second possibility is that there were two younger adult males involved in Jennifer’s disappearance. Just based on this first reading, I am unable to decide which scenario is the most probable. However, I am leaning in the direction of the first one. It is reading like someone made a romantic pass at Jennifer and was either getting back at her for her reaction or responded badly to her reaction.

The Ten of Cups reversed was pulled in connection with the cards described in the above two paragraphs. This is a card depicting an unhappy homelife. It can also indicate events that happened “close to home.” It might indicate that someone who lived near Jennifer was involved, or someone who had some kind of link to her home or family. There is the possibility the card refers to the other person’s homelife in terms of indicated it was a bad or abusive one.

The Lovers is coming up and given the rest of the reading, it seems to support the idea that someone was interested in Jennifer romantically and the motive behind all of this was linked to that attraction. The motive as in the decision/s someone made in this situation.

The Ten of Pentacles implies the desire of another person to catch the interest of, or potentially even marry, someone that they perceive as being in a higher social class. I’m not sure how else to explain it – other than to say in this context it reads like someone knew Jennifer was out of their league, but they were hoping the circumstances would pan out in their favor anyway.

The Emperor reversed is a male figure who abuses his position or power in a given situation. It is someone who is rigid and inflexible. A person exhibiting the attributes of this card is a control freak at heart and someone who needs to feel as though they have the control or power in a situation. This might explain how and why a romantic interest someone might have had in Jennifer could have gone so completely wrong.

The Knight of Swords may represent the male figure already introduced, or someone else. Either way, this is a person who is impatient and impulsive. Such a person would tend to come across as aggressive in their communications at times and also seem inflexible in terms of their views on different matters.

In these kinds of readings, if I get the Three of Wands in direct connection with a court card, it usually means that person traveled away from the area within a short period of time after the disappearance occurred. Often the travel is a long distance – so not something like a half hour away is what I’m trying to say here. Not usually, at least.

The Two of Swords indicates a situation where someone does not want to see the truth about a situation and are in a kind of denial about it. I don’t know who this card is meant to refer to, though I might have a better idea after the second reading.

Jennifer Kesse reading 2


Temperance reversed is showing a conflict and/or an altercation. So it does seem to reiterate that there was an interaction that occurred between Jennifer and at least one other person that went poorly.

The Two of Swords reversed is a card that comes up when the truth about something or someone becomes evident. It can also denote a sense of fear or panic because it is a card that indicates lies have been exposed or that a situation/person is much more harmful than a person might have originally thought. In the last reading, we left off with the Two of Swords in its upright position – suggesting that someone was blind to the truth about something. Here, however, we see a scenario where a person can no longer ignore the obvious.

The Lovers reversed is the opposite of what came up in the prior reading. It is showing a situation between two people that has turned toxic or harmful. In the first reading, it appeared that someone was motivated to approach Jennifer or get her attention somehow because of their attraction to her. Here we see the person’s reaction when that hope, or intent does not materialize. The card also shows the feelings were not mutual. Often, this card also represents a very bad decision – one with significant consequences.

The Six of Wands reversed makes me think that a lot of this was ultimately about ego and the other person responded badly to being rejected. It denotes conflict stemming from those kinds of feelings or drives.

The Empress reversed could show how this person’s view of Jennifer suddenly flipped to one that was negative. Before she seemed the epitome of the ideal female, but now she is viewed as something else entirely. None of this has anything to do with the reality of who Jennifer was because it appears to be about someone else’s ego and inability to handle rejection. It might have other additional meaning here that I’m not quite picking up on.

The Eight of Pentacles reversed shows me someone who has a boring job that is not high paying and does not have really good prospects for the future. It can also represent someone who does not handle their finances well and lacks overall ambition. However, the flipside to this card and it’s unique positioning in this reading is it seems to be pointing out that the person’s job has some kind of significance. I don’t want to read too much into this; I just want to point it out.

The Nine of Wands reversed is telling me a few different things about this person involved. First, I doubt highly this was the first time they reacted really badly to a situation because it is indicating a tendency to repeat negative patterns of behavior. Second, it is reiterating what was expressed with the first reading and the Emperor reversed: this person would not back down. They were rigid in their thinking and intent on being “right.”

The Five of Wands is another conflict card that is showing this as being rooted in a situation where two or more people did not have a meeting of the minds. There might be more than one other person involved in all this, but there is one primary player and that is who these readings seem to have focused on. But the Five of Wands might point to multiple people knowing and having different feelings about keeping that knowledge to themselves. They might also have different reasons for hiding their knowledge. If that’s the case, my hope is one of them will talk and share what they know. It definitely feels like more than one person has at least some knowledge about all of this – if not some involvement that would be incriminating.

Death reversed is another card that is saying to me the person involved – or the main person, because I truly cannot get a feel for whether there were others – did not, and has not, learned from past mistakes. With this much time having passed, I would not be surprised if this person has harmed other people and possibly even done prison time. This is not someone who learned their lesson and they probably do not feel they were in error either.

I don’t know what evidence the police might have regarding this case. I would look for evidence associated with her vehicle (because of the Chariot card that came up early on). If there are prints or DNA, it would be worth periodically running them because the readings come across like this person has or will do prison time for something. So I’m hoping the police have some kind of evidence that maybe did not yield any results in the past but might now or in the coming years.

Jessica Nicole Stacks reportedly disappeared after getting off a boat she had gotten onto with a boyfriend. He said that she got out of the boat and starting walking toward the highway. Jessica has not been seen since.

Jessica Stacks reading 1


The reading about who or what caused Jessica’s disappearance begins with Temperance reversed. The two primary options with this card, in a situation where someone has gone missing, include disharmony or conflict and the possibility of overindulgence in terms of alcohol or other things of that nature. Because the reading is beginning with this card, I would say it’s an important piece of the puzzle in terms of what happened to her.

The Two of Wands reversed indicates poor planning, or a lack of planning. It can also represent a situation where a person feels they have limited options if they are trying to decide about something.

The Wheel of Fortune reversed signifies circumstances shrouded in bad luck and unfortunate events, or some kind of upheaval, that likely fell outside of Jessica’s immediate control.

The King of Swords has come up as an older male individual (or someone who has those attributes and mannerisms) who appears to have been with her at the time of her disappearance. The Three of Cups is the card pulled in connection with it and it is usually associated with celebrations or happy social occasions. It is probably referencing the proximity of time in terms of this occurring at some point on New Years Day morning, but I’m not sure.

The Six of Swords is often a travel card. It can also represent a time of calm after there has been conflict, or a time when people are beginning to move forward after a time of disruption or stagnation. It could refer to Jessica being on a boat, but it doesn’t necessarily suggest that the story about her getting off the boat and going off on her own is accurate. It more just suggests that this represents a time in which the conflict or problems died down, and possible travel from one location to another of some kind – potentially by water or boat, but this is not a certainty with this card. Sometimes it refers to the period of time after a major conflict.

The Page of Cups is an interesting card to come up because it’s one I often see when someone proposes marriage or there is some kind of positive news relating to a relationship or family. However, the Seven of Cups reversed is suggesting the possibility that it might not have been well received – or that in Jessica’s mind, it might have felt as though she didn’t have a lot of options or better options. By contrast, it sometimes simply points to poor decision-making.

The Two of Cups is another card pointing to a relationship that Jessica had with someone (likely the King of Swords person, since he was someone introduced a little into the reading). The card usually represents a close relationship or connection. Some of these cards are reading like Jessica was not as sure about the relationship – like she was having misgivings about it or just had a different perspective on it than the person in the King position.

The Two of Swords card is another one that seems to show Jessica as potentially not being on exactly the same page as the King of Swords individual. First, the Two of Swords can be a card where someone is in denial about something. Second, it can represent someone who wants time to delve inward and think about their situation before they make decisions. It’s a card that comes up when someone feels they have no good options to choose from and so they are uncomfortable making a choice.

The Fool reversed is a card depicting poor decision making – where someone acts in a way that is careless or does not really account for all the possible risks inherent in a situation. There can also be negligence with this card.

So the only other person this reading appears to have focused in on was the individual represented by the King of Swords card which is meant to answer the question as to who or what caused her disappearance. I feel like we got a little bit of a glimpse into the why as well; however, I would like to do a second reading and see what more I can get.

Straight away we have the Moon. This is saying that there’s more to this story than is being told. People are keeping secrets and there are hidden elements that have not fully been uncovered. There could be multiple people with information about what really happened and there is a sense of hidden or inherent danger in the situation, though I don’t really understand what that’s about just yet.

The Ace of Swords is assertive in that it represents a situation where a person clings to their truth or is willing to articulate what it is they want or need. Jessica was apparently having problems or conflicts with at least one other person – the person mentioned in the prior reading – and she was trying to make the right decision about it all.

The Seven of Wands reversed may indicate someone who feels defeated or does not feel as though they have enough power or control to fully defend themselves. Perhaps they feel a loss of control, or they feel as though they don’t have the energy or stamina to hold their ground. The Wands is a suit of action and so it could represent an actual physical altercation or fight, though it is hard to say for sure just based on these readings. Like I always say, these are tarot readings. Not everything is going to be accurate, and I can misinterpret what cards are trying to tell me at times as well.

The Knight of Wands came up as a card representing a person with masculine traits or attributes. Such a person might have a quick temper and come across as passionate about different aspects of life. The Ten of Wands reversed is showing this person as feeling overwhelmed and faced with an insurmountable obstacle – someone who feels resigned to their fate, for whatever reason. It kind of feels like this is another person with some after-the-fact kind of involvement or knowledge. It reads like someone else who was pulled into it and felt like it brought a significant amount of stress on them – more burden than they felt they should have, basically.

Death reversed is showing me that there was a lack of harmony between the person indicated by at least one person and Jessica. It’s a card that can come up when people breakup, or are on the verge of it, or when a relationship has serious problems but one or both people fear change too much to leave it behind. Sometimes an attempt to break up with someone can trigger negative events or violence. I don’t know if that’s the case here but it reads as a possibility.

The Page of Cups has returned for this reading and again seems to represent some kind of proposal or positive news that must have had a significant influence on the situation because it has come up in two separate readings now. The Queen of Cups reversed is the card pulled in direct connection with the Page and so there is this sense that the proposal or information was given to Jessica. It is coming up as upright in both readings which means that on its face, it’s something positive and good. However, Jessica might not have viewed it that way or reacted in a way that was expected. This part is hard to get a clear picture of right now.

The Knight of Swords reversed was pulled for the Queen reversed card and this is most likely to represent one of two things (and I honestly don’t know which one is more likely since I have so little background information on this): 1) it might represent a side to the boyfriend or significant other that was acting as a kind of obstacle in terms of making Jessica reluctant to move forward with whatever was offered or proposed, or 2) it could represent another person entirely that Jessica felt stood between her and the person who has appeared in both readings. The Star is the outcome that Jessica would have hoped to achieve, or the one she was basing her decisions on. And whoever the person was in the Knight of Swords reversed position (the boyfriend or someone else entirely) stood in the way of that or was a reason why a positive outcome might now happen.

Somehow, it does feel like there were at least three people involved or who had direct knowledge about what happened (including Jessica). I cannot totally make sense of this though.

The King of Wands reversed is someone who demonstrates the more negative or aggressive elements of the Wand court cards, such as a potential for recklessness, a quick or hot temper, etc. Again, this comes across as an older male versus the Knight that is either a younger male or someone who comes across as immature for their age. The Four of Swords came up in connection with this older person and denotes a strong sense of anxiety, fear, and mental overload. It is a card showing that someone is seeking to rest or recuperate after a significant conflict or series of battles.

The Six of Pentacles reversed shows an inequity between the people involved. It’s a card that can represent someone giving gifts or support, with strings attached, or someone who yields power and control in a situation because they have more material or monetary resources than the other. There also might be a monetary aspect of all this that I’m not picking up on. It could be someone getting money to keep quiet or someone who feels like they must keep quiet in the interest of a shared business or endeavor, or something along those lines.

The Six of Wands reversed is a situation where someone feels as though they have failed to achieve what they wanted, and they feel they are at a total disadvantage. I am included to read this as Jessica’s final positioning in the reading, but it could also pertain to someone who has knowledge or involvement in what happened to her and perhaps did not intend for it to go quite the way it did. There are elements in other parts of these readings that point to poor planning and reckless behavior, so it is not coming across as a meticulously planned situation.

The readings make me think that at least one person had a hand in her death, and they are keeping secrets about it. I’m inclined to think there is another person with knowledge as well, but I’m not as confident about that part.

Aubrey Dameron

Disappearance: 03/09/2019
Location: Grove, Oklahoma

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.


Aubrey Dameron left her home in Grove, Oklahoma in the early morning hours of March 9th of 2019. She was 25 years old at the time. She has not been seen since.

Question: Who or what caused Aubrey Dameron’s disappearance?

Row 1
The Emperor – Queen of Swords (reversed) – The Hermit
Card pulled for the Emperor: 6 of Cups
Card pulled for the Queen of Swords (r): 8 of Pentacles

Row 2
10 of Pentacles (reversed) – Temperance (reversed) – 7 of Cups (reversed)

Row 3
9 of Pentacles – Ace of Pentacles (reversed) – 3 of Pentacles (reversed)


In response to the question about who or what was involved in Aubrey’s disappearance, the reading begins with the Emperor. This is a card that typically depicts a male father-type figure. The Six of Cups usually shows a person who is spending a lot of time thinking about the past – typically about situations or feelings pertaining to their childhood. It can represent positive or negative memories, and in some cases may indicate a person who experienced abuse as a child.

The Queen of Swords reversed represents a person or energy that comes across as feminine and mature in terms of age or behavior. In its reversed position, the negative attributes associated with the card are emphasized. This is a person who experiences difficulty when trying to communicate, might tend to rush to judgement, and comes across as bitter. The Eight of Pentacles, pulled in relation to this person, shows someone focusing on a job or a task and shows a lot of attention to details. If this person is a parental figure, the Queen of Swords reversed could point to someone who is or has been kind of an absent mom.

With regard to the father figure card, and the Queen reversed which could depict a type of motherly-figure, I’m not saying her own family is involved. These cards could merely point to people that fulfill these types of roles in their day-to-day life. Their descriptions might resonate with someone close to this situation.

The Hermit seems to convey that at least one of the people involved is keeping to themselves. I don’t know if this is the norm for them, but they were (and possibly still are) going through a time of introspection.

The Ten of Pentacles reversed is a card that comes up when a person is experiencing family-related feuding or conflict. It can also mean that a person is struggling with money – possibly owes a lot of debt. In some instances, it depicts a relationship that is either on the brink of ending or one that has recently ended.

Temperance reversed is a card that comes up when there is a significant conflict or imbalance. In its upright position it can point to harmonious and positive relationships, but reversed it represents the opposite. It can also suggest a situation where someone overindulges in something. Another negative aspect of this positioning is that it can show someone as behaving in a way that is antagonizing.

The Seven of Cups reversed shows at least one person making poor choices. On one hand, the person might have felt they did not have a lot of options. On the other, they might have responded badly to something. The card depicts a sense of feeling as though one is kind of trapped.

The Nine of Pentacles is a more positive card that suggests that someone involved has more money than another person. I don’t know if the person depicted in the Emperor card was going through a divorce or some kind of situation that did not end well for them financially or what. It appears there are two people somehow linked to what happened to Aubrey, but it is not showing them as getting along or having a healthy relationship and so it is difficult to work out exactly what might have been happening here.

The Ace of Pentacles reversed is again showing a bad money situation. I don’t know how or why it is related to Aubrey’s disappearance, but it is definitely a factor.

Finally, the Three of Pentacles reversed is another card pointing to a partnership or a collaboration that went wrong. Again, I don’t understand yet how Aubrey was involved in all this, but it reads like at least three people – including Aubrey – have direct knowledge about what occurred. And there are monetary or material aspects to this situation that I can’t quite pinpoint.

Question: What circumstances caused Aubrey Dameron’s disappearance?

Row 1
3 of Swords (reversed) – 8 of Cups (reversed) – The Hierophant (reversed)

Row 2
9 of Cups (reversed) – Knight of Swords – 4 of Swords
Card pulled for the Knight of Swords: 10 of Pentacles

Row 3
Knight of Wands (reversed) – 7 of Wands – Page of Swords (reversed)
Card pulled for the Knight of Wands (r): 10 of Swords (reversed)
Card pulled for the Page of Swords (r): 6 of Cups (reversed)


The Three of Swords reversed is a card showing someone getting over a painful breakup or situation. It depicts them as being in the process of moving on. I don’t know why the reading is starting with this aspect, but maybe it could be emphasizing this for a reason.

The Eight of Cups reversed is a situation where Aubrey might have had some misgivings about a person or a situation, and felt like she should walk away from them, but didn’t – or maybe kept some ties to because she wasn’t ready to completely let go. Often the reason is because the person is afraid to take that step, or they are afraid of the change it will bring. Other times it is because they are fearful about possible negative consequences.

The Hierophant reversed is a card that could indicate someone was involved who was giving her advice, or acting as though they were someone she could trust and confide in. Another facet to this card is that it can depict going against traditional or societal norms. It could indicate that whoever was involved was at least, in part, motivated by her being transgender, and reportedly in the process of transitioning, since the card sometimes comes up when someone is being judged based on an aspect of their life or lifestyle.

The Nine of Cups reversed is a card that shows a miserable type of situation in which events turn bad.

The Knight of Swords is a person who comes across as younger. If they are older then they probably come across as immature for their age. An important characteristic associated with this card is that it often represents a person who is stubborn and won’t let go of their way of thinking. They don’t like to lose an argument. The Ten of Pentacles, in relation to this person, shows someone motivated primarily by monetary or material matters. It might represent a person who marries for the money or who makes decisions based on their perception that it might have some kind of financial benefit.

The Four of Swords is a card that conveys fear and anxiety. It shows a person who needs rest because a situation or problem has overwhelmed them. It can also suggest a person who seeks advice or counseling from someone.

The Knight of Wands reversed shows someone acting in a way that is reckless and potentially violent. The Ten of Swords reversed indicates that Aubrey might have tried to defend herself against things the person said or did, but it can indicate a situation that has reached rock bottom.

The Seven of Wands is someone who stands up for their beliefs. It is also a card that shows someone as feeling they are under attack. It isn’t a situation where a person just gives in and admits defeat, but rather it usually represents someone trying to stand their ground.

The Page of Swords reversed could indicate bad news, or delays in finding answers. It might also represent a person who knows more than they are saying. It can also point to gossip and malicious things that someone is saying. These are factors to pay attention to because the cards seem to want to emphasize that what people say – or don’t say – might give a lot more away about their involvement than they realize. Sometimes it depicts someone who says too much and admits their involvement to one or more people.

The last card, connected to the Page reversed, is the Six of Cups reversed. The first reading pointed to someone involved who might have a history of childhood abuse or trauma. This card is reiterating the same message, except in a reversed position. I don’t know if the information about the abuse is meant to clue us in as to why they did whatever it is they did here, or if it is putting that out there as a clue to their identity. Again, someone close to Aubrey and this entire situation is probably going to be able to understand the meaning behind these cards better than I can – given that I have no direct involvement.

The readings do not come across as the main person or people being completely unknown to Aubrey. There is also a sense that they don’t live too far away. However, these kinds of details are not made entirely clear in the reading so I’m not putting any emphasis on them at this time. The outcome is coming across as negative; however, this is a tarot reading and so it should not be taken as fact or be relied upon to determine a person’s fate.

I want to point out that there are so many cards pointing to some kind of monetary or material motive here. I don’t know what to make of them but there were enough of these cards that I feel I should point them out, despite not really understanding how they play a role in all this specifically.

Sohail Ahmadi

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

Disclaimer: Tarot readings should not be taken as absolute claims that something did or did not happen. I only report the meaning of the cards, their relationships and the meaning in the context of those relationships, as well as intuitions I have based entirely on the cards presented in the reading. Tarot reading is an art and not a science.


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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Question: What is currently happening with Sohail?

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Michael Vaughan

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

Disclaimer: Tarot readings should not be taken as absolute claims that something did or did not happen. I only report the meaning of the cards, their relationships and the meaning in the context of those relationships, as well as intuitions I have based entirely on the cards presented in the reading. Tarot reading is an art and not a science.


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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Question: What is happening with Michael Vaughan currently?

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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