Summary:

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

Question: What circumstances caused April’s disappearance?

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

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

Row 3
Hierophant – 4 of Wands – 7 of Wands

Reading

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

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

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

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

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

Question: Who or what caused April’s disappearance?

Row 1
Star – Emperor – 9 of Pentacles

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

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

Reading:

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

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

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

Oracle Reading

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Summary:

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.

Question: Who or what caused the disappearance of Jennifer Kesse?

Death – The Chariot – The Empress

Row 2
Knight of Cups – The Lovers – Ten of Pentacles
Card pulled for the Knight of Cups: Knight of Wands (reversed)
Card pulled for the Knight of Wands (r): Page of Swords (reversed)
Card pulled for the Page of Swords (r): 10 of Cups (reversed)

Row 3
The Emperor (reversed) – Knight of Swords – 2 of Swords
Card pulled for the Knight of Swords: 3 of Wands

Jennifer Kesse reading 1

Reading:

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.

Question: What circumstances caused the disappearance of Jennifer Kesse?

Row 1
Temperance (reversed) – 2 of Swords (reversed) – Lovers (reversed)

Row 2
6 of Wands (reversed) – Empress (reversed) – 8 of Pentacles (reversed)

Row 3
9 of Wands (reversed) – 5 of Wands – Death (reversed)

Jennifer Kesse reading 2

Reading

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 Stacks

Disappearance: 01/01/2021
Location: New Albany, Mississippi

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

Summary:

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.

Question: Who or what caused the disappearance of Jessica Stacks?

Row 1
Temperance (reversed) – 2 of Wands (reversed) – The Wheel (reversed)

Row 2
King of Swords – 6 of Swords – Page of Cups
Card pulled for the King of Swords: 3 of Cups
Card pulled for the Page of Cups: 7 of Cups (reversed)

Row 3
2 of Cups – 2 of Swords – The Fool (reversed)

Jessica Stacks reading 1

Reading:

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.

Jessica Stacks reading 2

Reading

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.
