Reading

This initial reading on the circumstances surrounding Logan’s disappearance, and subsequent death, shows a lot of different things going on. I’ve talked before about how the readings will touch on all of these people, events, and influences that were around a person when they disappeared or died. While that can shed a lot of light on the situation, it can also create confusion when some of those are not directly related to it all. So it’s important to keep that in mind when going through everything here. And again, it’s just a tarot reading.

The first card is the Queen of Pentacles reversed. When a person is represented by this card in its reversed position, all of the negative attributes are highlighted. Minimally, people depicted by this card are manipulative and have a mean streak. However, some are actual sociopaths and so there is a spectrum there. Such a person could be a motherly figure in that they may have one or more children. The Ace of Wands reversed is showing that there was some kind of bad news that came up with regard to this person. Maybe Logan had some kind of plans that were delayed or derailed by this person. I don’t know. It’s not the only card that has an underlying meaning that could pertain to travel plans.

The next card is the King of Swords. The cards pulled in connection with it include the Queen of Swords reversed, the Page of Pentacles reversed, and the World reversed. The person depicted by the King card has positive attributed. This would be someone who is articulate, has goals, achieves their goals, and is considered an expert in whatever it is they do for work. The card might represent Logan. The Queen of Swords reversed is someone directly connected to the person in the King position. This is a person who is a poor communicator, and it can sometimes represent an absent or neglectful mother. The Page of Pentacles reversed may represent some bad news that Logan received – probably from or about the person in the Queen position. It could have been related to money or living arrangements or anything else that is material in nature. Finally, the World reversed is showing an incomplete situation in which success was not achieved. So I don’t know if Logan had a plan or desire to do something specific, but the means to accomplish it fell through, or if there is some other explanation to all that.

The King of Pentacles reversed is striking me as a father figure who would be – or have been – distinguishable by specific attributes associated with their personality. This is a card with masculine energy. When it represents a person, it is someone who can be greedy, selfish, corrupt, a failure in terms of business endeavors, etc. The Six of Cups was pulled in reference to this person, and it can represent a person’s childhood, childhood memories, family, issues experienced in childhood, and other similar types of themes.

The Knight of Pentacles reversed, when depicting a person, is someone with male energy who is likely younger than the people in the Queen and King positions – or at least, it is someone who is operating at the emotional level of a young adult. This is a person who is irresponsible, unstable, focused on money, and prone to breaking promises. The Five of Wands reversed is the card pulled with the Knight and it is a solution card or one that represents the end of a struggle. It is possible that Logan was having an issue with someone, and it was resolved by some means – or was thought to be resolved – or what this is pointing to specifically.

The Three of Wands is another card that makes me think that Logan might have had some kind of plan to go somewhere or travel. Sometimes, it is a card that just refers to a person who is planning ahead and seeking to live their life to the fullest in terms of going after their goals or enjoying the results of their hard work. But the first two cards suggest that there was some kind of plan that was either canceled or delayed.

The Emperor would be a father figure type of person that was either in Logan’s life at the time, or who he came in contact with around the time that he disappeared (and was later found deceased). Typically, this is a male person who is protective, authoritative, and dependable. Minimally, they come across that way at least, and they are viewed as having some kind of influence or power.

The Ace of Pentacles is suggesting that there might have been some kind of new job opportunity, or a goal or finding a new job, at the time that this all happened. I don’t know what Logan did for work, but perhaps he was thinking of starting his own business? I’m not sure. Maybe that is tied in with whatever other plans he seemed to have, or maybe he just came across a potential job opportunity or chance to make money.

The Seven of Wands reversed is a card of defeat. It can come up when someone gets completely burned out, gives in to the wishes of others – even if it is to their own detriment, or just surrenders to their circumstances. So I would say that regardless of what actually happened to Logan, and caused his death, he had a lot on his mind at the time and there were a lot of human influences.

The final card is the Two of Cups reversed. This is usually a breakup card or one that can signify a divorce. It is basically a relationship that has gone wrong that a person was emotionally invested in. If the relationship is still going when this card appears, then it points to arguments, conflict, and disharmony within it.

Question: Who or what caused Logan’s death?

Row 1
8 of Cups – Page of Wands – Emperor
Card pulled for the Page of Wands: Hierophant (r)

Row 2
3 of Swords – 9 of Cups – 6 of Cups

Row 3
Temperance – 3 of Cups (r) – 2 of Pentacles

Reading:

The Eight of Cups signifies a person who reaches their limit with something or someone and realizes that they should walk away. That doesn’t mean they actually do it, but it’s a card showing that a person has come to the point where they know something, or someone, is no longer serving them in a positive way (if they ever were in the first place).

The Page of Wands may indicate a young person – such as a child – or a message. It is typically a positive card. But what is odd is that the card pulled in connection with it is the Hierophant reversed. Was there a breakup of a relationship, or a divorce, which involved a child? I can’t really make sense of this combination, but it feels like there is possibly a child connected to a bad relationship or a relationship that didn’t work out. However, Logan was only 20 years old so I’m not sure what to do with those cards because I have no background information on him.

The Emperor appeared in this reading again. It has the same meaning as before. There was some kind of older, probably male, influence that was in Logan’s life – or came into it right around the time of his disappearance and death – that plays a role in all this. Not in that they did anything wrong; just that they have come up twice and so their existence or actions are important somehow to this whole story.

The Three of Swords is a heartbreak card. There are so many cards in this reading that are pointing to emotional distress over relationships. I do think that there is or was a romantic type of relationship influence in all of this because of the last card in the first reading, and this card that goes a step further and almost suggests a kind of betrayal or deception. Now this could simply be something that was on his mind and contributed to his emotional state when all this happened. It doesn’t mean that a partner, or a former partner, was responsible for his death. For instance, in a suicide (I am just using this as an example; I don’t know what the cause of death was for Logan), there are factors that impact how a person is feeling at a given time and they can either help or hinder a person’s mental state.

Nine of Cups is a card of achievement and prosperity. But it’s placement between the Three of Swords and the Six of Cups (that card is back again) suggests to me that those outer cards were blocking what the Nine of Cups had to offer in Logan’s life – or acting as obstacles to it, for lack of a better way of describing it. The Six of Cups makes me think there were unresolved childhood memories or issues that were coloring a lot of Logan’s life and possibly holding him back in some ways.

Temperance is a card of wanting to find peace and balance. It can also apply to relationships – including romantic ones – where a person wants to find solutions or reach a point of calm.

The Three of Cups reversed…Did he have something planned like a wedding or some kind of event that was canceled or broken off? Maybe a celebration of some kind? It can point to issues such as cheating and miscarriages too.

The Two of Pentacles is about trying to find balance and trying to juggle a lot of different matters in one’s life – typically financial or material in nature.

So this reading does not present a specific person in terms of pointing to them as a singular and direct influence. It also ends with an air of uncertainty – as though there were these efforts and actions to find balance and fix problems in Logan’s life, but then he was found deceased. I don’t have enough information to decipher if his death was intentional on anyone’s part – including his own. I simply can’t tell. I can only say he had a lot more going on than people on the outside, who didn’t really know him well, would have imagined. I don’t think he had the easiest life.

Paul Hunsinger

Date of death: 10/29/2018
Location: Pennsylvania

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

Summary:

Paul M. Hunsinger was found deceased on October 29th of 2018. I don’t know the circumstances surrounding his death.

Question: What circumstances caused Paul’s death?

Row 1
Queen of Cups – Page of Cups – King of Pentacles (r)
Card pulled for the Queen of Cups: Tower
Card pulled for the Page of Cups: Page of Swords (r)
Card pulled for the Page of Swords (r): 6 of Cups (r)
Card pulled for the King of Pentacles (r): 7 of Cups

Row 2
Moon (r) – Queen of Pentacles – The World (r)
Card pulled for the Queen of Pentacles: The Devil (r)

Row 3
Hierophant (r) – Judgement (r) – Hanged Man (r)

Reading

There is a lot going on here. What is going to be somewhat difficult is determining what people, influences, and events truly pertain directly to Paul’s death. Keep in mind that it is possible for all of these surrounding influences and energies to present in a reading – even in cases where a death is not clear cut, is accidental, etc. I haven’t gotten to the who or what part of Paul’s death yet and so I don’t have a strong feel for that aspect yet.

The Queen of Cups is a female energy that was in Paul’s life. It’s not presenting as a negative influence necessarily, but the Tower tells me that there was some kind of shocking revelation or event that occurred to or because of this person. Whatever that was seems to be coloring the reading as a whole. The Queen card is a person who can be emotional and sensitive – for better or worse. It is usually someone highly intuitive and who is more likely to act on emotion.

The Page of Cups could be a message, or a person related to some kind of positive situation or event. It could have to do with a marriage, pregnancy, relationship, etc. But the Page of Swords reversed, pulled in reference to the Page of Cups, is showing there was some kind of bad news about whatever the first card represented. The Six of Cups reversed was pulled in connection with these cards as well. It usually points to issues relating to a person’s childhood – issues that have come to the forefront or that a person is trying to address. Sometimes it just represents someone who is stuck in the past though, for whatever reason.

The King of Pentacles reversed is coming across as a negative influence or person. If it’s a person, it is probably an adult male. This is a person who has experienced a lot of failure, might potentially be corrupt, is cold on an emotional level, and focuses too much on money or material things. It can also point to someone who is unfaithful in a relationship.

The Seven of Cups was pulled in connection with the King card, and this shows someone that might be reluctant to face reality. It can show a situation where there are many different options available, but the person responsible for choosing one of those options is not necessarily seeing everything clearly or as it is in reality.

The Moon reversed represents the unveiling of secrets and so I think, when you consider the first two cards, it is possible that Paul found out the truth about something. The Moon can sometimes indicate infidelity and so that is a possibility, though the nature of whatever was revealed is not clear at this time.

The Queen of Pentacles is a female type of energy, or a person, which is generally business minded or has the ability to provide for themselves. When this card represents a person, it is usually someone with a lot of positive attributes. But the Devil reversed – which is the card connected to this one – suggests there was some kind of situation going on with this person. I don’t know if they overcame an addiction, were trying to overcome an addiction, or what that card might represent. It can be a card of freedom and revelation as well.

The World reversed is signifying a situation where there is a lack of success and/or a lack of completion. It can indicate something disappointing or a burden that someone is dealing with.

The Heirophant reversed could represent a troubled marriage, a divorce, or someone who is rebellious and unconventional. Judgement reversed is a person that doesn’t learn from their mistakes or past, can be malicious, places blame on others unfairly, and has a lot of regrets.

The reading ends with the Hanged Man reversed. This card is a difficult one to interpret here. It comes up in a lot of different situations, such as ones where a person is having health issues or ones where someone is extremely psychologically distressed. Sometimes it represents suicide, but there are too many meanings associated with this card to event speculate on this aspect. Hopefully the second reading will shed more light on these matters.

Question: Who or what caused Paul’s death?

Row 1
Chariot – 10 of Swords (r) – 8 of Cups (r)

Row 2
Knight of Swords (r) – Page of Cups – Temperance
Card pulled for the Knight of Swords (r): Hierophant (r)
Card pulled for the Page of Cups: 6 of Pentacles (r)

Row 3
10 of Cups (r) – 6 of Wands (r) – 8 of Pentacles (r)

Reading:

There are going to be several different perspectives a person can take when interpreting these cards. The first is to consider that if Paul died due to reasons that were not directly caused by another person, then the cards largely pertain directly to him. The second is that the cards represent someone other than Paul. This reading never makes it clear to me which one is the most likely and so my hope is that something in all of this resonates with someone who knew Paul and his circumstances because it might shed light on the entire situation.

The Chariot is a card that typically indicates movement and travel. It can also be a victory card or one indicating that someone is in the process of overcoming obstacles, or that they already have.

The 10 of Swords reversed is often about rising above problems or people that are creating problems. It’s usually more of a card reflecting what is going on in someone’s thinking or psyche then it is one representing specific events. So it’s making me think that Paul was dealing with difficulties from his past and trying to rise above them.

The Eight of Cups reversed is card that can show someone who is afraid of being abandoned or left behind. It can also be a person who should leave a person or problem behind but can’t quite bring themselves to do it and so they basically accept their situation and try to come to terms with it.

The Knight of Swords reversed usually represents a male person or energy. A lot of times, this is someone who has a hard time communicating with others. Sometimes this is because they have a speech impediment, but other times it is just an overall inability to express themselves properly. People represented by this card often engage in aggressive behavior, may behave like a bully, and could have a criminal record. If they don’t have a criminal record, then it is probably only because they weren’t caught doing whatever they’ve done.

The Hierophant reversed has appeared in both readings and so there is definitely significance to this card. It was pulled in connection with the Knight. It could be indicating there was a failed marriage, poor advice or counsel given, or a situation where someone behaved in a rebellious way.

The Page of Cups can represent a child or a positive message of some kind. Sometimes there is a psychic or intuitive nature to the person or message. It could represent romantic news, a pregnancy, or some other kind of positive news. The card pulled in connection with this one was the Six of Pentacles reversed and that could change the meaning of the Page card a lot. It could indicate that there was some kind of scam going on, an abuse of power, or the giving of gifts with some kind of strings attached.

Temperance is a card where someone is seeking balance and harmony.

The Ten of Cups reversed indicates trouble at home or difficulty in one or more close relationships. If it a card of dysfunction and can indicate a broken home or family situation.

The Six of Wands reversed is someone who wanted positive recognition – potentially to the point of wanting fame or widespread attention – but experienced failure in this regard. It can also indicate a kind of fall from grace for whoever this reading represents.

The Eight of Pentacles reversed is a card that I see when a person is bored with their job or career path or is having a difficult time focusing and doing the kind of quality of work that they are probably capable of doing. It can also represent a workaholic or someone who spends too much time thinking about work or engaging in work activities.

Neither of the readings is giving me a clear answer about what caused Paul’s death. I can’t rule much out. He had a lot going on in his life around the time of his death and that makes it appear like there is something more to all this.

Curtis Thorne

Disappearance: 08/06/2021
Location: Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada

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

Summary:

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

Question: What circumstances caused Curtis’ disappearance?

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

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

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

Reading

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Question: Who or what caused Curtis’ disappearance?

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

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

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

Reading:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Alan Eugene Buckels Sr.

Death: December 18, 2020
Location: Jefferson County, Arkansas

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

Summary:

Alan was last seen on December 18th of 2020. His body was found near the Arkansas River – on its banks – on April 30th of 2020.

Question: What circumstances caused Alan’s death?

Row 1

Page of Wands – Queen of Wands – 10 of Wands
Card pulled for the Page of Wands: 3 of Cups
Card pulled for the Queen of Wands: King of Pentacles (r)
Card pulled for the King of Pentacles (r): High Priestess (r)

Row 2

8 of Swords (r) – Hierophant – Ace of Pentacles (r)

Row 3

4 of Cups (r) – Knight of Cups (r) – Ace of Wands
Card pulled for the Knight of Cups (r): Knight of Pentacles (r)
Card pulled for the Knight of Pentacles (r): 8 of Cups

Reading

A challenge associated with all readings is separating ordinary and non-meaningful (not directly pertaining to what happened) event from true contributing factors. That said, the goal is always to try to isolate instances or occurrences that provide some kind of explanation.

The Page of Wands is often a messenger or a message. If it’s a message, then it is one that comes quickly, and it usually relates to work or love matters. The message was about some kind of event or something happy/positive. Examples include social events, weddings, gatherings, etc. So Alan got positive news about something relating to that.

The Queen of Wands is usually a female (or female energy) with strong and courageous energy. The card can represent a mother or someone who has those qualities. In its upright position it is emphasizing the positive traits associated with this person.

However, the King of Pentacles reversed was pulled in connection to the Queen and this is not a positive card. This usually represents someone who is corrupt, unsuccessful, and shows a pattern of failure. People represented by this card are focused on material matters, even if they are experiencing financial problems (which they usually are in the reversed position), and they can be ruthless.

The High Priestess reversed, pulled in connection with both the King and the Queen, indicates some kind of betrayal and secrets. Sometimes it represents fertility issues. But the positioning is showing that there was some kind of situation between these two people. I don’t know if they were harboring some kind of secret pertaining to Alan or what. Maybe the person in the King position had an issue with Alan that related to the person in the Queen position.

The Ten of Wands is a card that shows Alan in a situation where he felt overwhelmed and perhaps over-burdened. It shows a situation where someone is doing – or at least feels they are – the majority of the heavy lifting when responsibilities or problems should be spread out more evenly. Regardless, it shows Alan as being intent on pushing through whatever it was.

The Eight of Swords reversed is a card that can indicate becoming free of something or standing up to abuse of some kind. It could be verbal, physical, psychological, etc. It suggests Alan might have stood up to someone or pushed back on someone who was causing problems in his life.

The Hierophant is tough to pinpoint here. It can be a card that represents a marriage or some kind of traditional institution along those lines. But it can also represent someone who acts as a mentor or provides some kind of counseling. Alan might have gotten advice from someone regarding his situation. The card is coming up for a reason and perhaps someone closer to all of this can better distinguish its exact meaning here.

Okay there was some kind of financial or material issue associated with whatever happened to Alan. It is as though there was a lack of planning regarding something and there is this sense that greed or insecurity influenced the situation. I’m not saying Alan was greedy or insecure. The card feels disconnected to him and his personality – as though it is referring to an influence or person surrounding him.

An interesting thing that I am getting throughout this reading is that Alan was not someone to just give up on things. I think that he had an underlying sense of optimism and enthusiasm that propelled him through the harder times. I am not sure how else to explain that. But the Four of Cups reversed is another card that is saying to me that he was trying to appreciate the good things in his life. He was trying to focus on the positive aspects or what could potentially become positive if he got through whatever challenges he was facing. So though this is just a tarot reading, and I can never be sure about these things, I do not get the sense he killed himself. I feel like the cards are trying to dispel some kind of beliefs about this.

The Knight of Cups reversed is showing me a person that turned out to be dishonest and was just bad news in general. Sometimes, instead of representing an actual person, it can show a situation where there was unrequited love or some kind of negative feeling matter that is kind of clouding everything.

The Knight of Pentacles reversed can be a person or energy. If it is a person then it is someone who breaks promises, someone who is probably a gambler or terrible with money, and someone who does not finish the things they start.

The Eight of Cups, pulled in relation to the two Knight cards, is showing someone walking away from a situation or abandoning a relationship that has caused distress.

The Ace of Wands is a new beginnings card. I don’t want to push any beliefs or anything like that but since I was told that Alan is deceased, it is likely a card that is communicating to one or more of his loved ones that the journey didn’t end for him and that all of these issues that were presented in the reading are not overshadowing his soul, energy, or existence. I don’t know how else to explain it. It’s like a message from Alan to one or more people in particular that are really struggling with his passing.

Based on the first reading, I cannot say with any certainty whether someone else deliberately caused his death. But I can say there were some shady people in his life that did not have his best interests at heart and the reading was intent on conveying this.

Question: Who or what caused Alan’s death?

Justice (r) – Hanged Man (r) – 6 of Swords

Row 2

3 of Cups – 4 of Pentacles (r) – 4 of Cups (r)

Row 3

3 of Pentacles (r) – 5 of Wands – Judgement (r)

Reading:

Well, these cards definitely answer some questions that I have from the first reading. My main question, in my own mind, was whether this was an accidental death or one that someone else caused or contributed to.

Justice reversed is telling me that something shady is connected to all this. There was an injustice here. The card is extremely clear on that, and you will see that combined with some of the other cards, it is telling me someone did something they shouldn’t have done. It doesn’t tell me if the death was an outright murder, but if it wasn’t then I would say that some kind of selfish actions, or significant neglect of duties, was a major contributor.

The Hanged Man reversed can indicate several things. First, I have to put it out there that it can represent a suicide. This is not always the case. If it does indicate that here, then at least one person did something – or multiple things – that directly contributed. I’m not talking about the people who loved him. I’m talking about the person or people who were somehow involved in his life and only cared about themselves.

Alternately, I asked the cards specifically about the who or the what. So the first potential meaning only applies if Alan represents the who in my question. A second possibility is that someone else represents the who and that can take this in a different direction. I’ve seen this card come up for people who have had problems with the law in the past and either have served prison time (or been in jail) or are doing so currently. It’s a card of negative patterns and just basically repeating the same – or similar – mistakes. Never learning and this will be strongly reiterated by the last card in this reading, which is Judgement reversed. We’ll get there.

Six of Swords is a card indicating the calm after a storm. It can indicate resting after a conflict or hard time. It can also refer to travel. So if someone is involved in this somehow, perhaps they traveled shortly thereafter. I’m not sure.

The Three of Cups is back. This would represent some kind of gathering, event, or social situation that either happened or was going to happen. The readings seem to want to emphasize this and so if a person reading this knows what it is referring to, there is some kind of connection there. Maybe the person or people he had problems with attended or was planning to? I don’t know, but whatever this represents specifically, it’s important.

The Four of Pentacles reversed is saying that the person responsible, directly or indirectly, has financial issues. They are either really struggling financially or they hoard the money they do have. If they are lacking financially then I would expect to see someone who spends more than they have, gambles, or just does not have financial stability for whatever reason – it is usually a reason caused by them though.

We had the Four of Cups reversed in the first reading. It has returned for this one as well. It’s a card about seizing an opportunity or becoming motivated to do something to reach a goal.

The Three of Pentacles reversed is showing a situation where there was or is poor collaboration. It can indicate people that have a shared goal or are working on something together (could be work, parenting, etc.) and it is just not going well. It’s not an effective partnership. There are real problems or were around the time of Alan’s passing.

The Five of Wands is a conflict card typically. It can represent anything from a minor argument to something major. It also indicates different purposes or agendas as the source of the conflict. There is a competitive feel to this card at times and so I don’t know if all this pertains to work or a relationship or what. I definitely think that someone who knew Alan well may be able to piece a lot of this together much better than I can.

Judgement reversed shows me someone who didn’t learn from their mistakes or from their past. They don’t want to be held accountable for the wrongs that they do, but they are forgetting that no amount of lying, or misleading can hide truths the universe wants known. There is a backstabbing and gossip element to this card sometimes too – putting the blame on others unfairly or making false accusations. If there is someone who had badmouthed Alan around the time of his death, or even to this day, I would look closely at that person in terms of questioning their motive for doing that.

Kyle Leblanc

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

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

Summary:

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

Question: Who or what caused Kyle’s disappearance?

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

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

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

Reading:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Question: What circumstances caused Kyle’s disappearance?

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

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

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

Reading

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Summer Moon-Utah Wells

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

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

Summary:

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

Question: Who or what caused Summer’s disappearance?

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

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

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

Reading:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Question: What circumstances caused Summer’s disappearance?

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

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

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

Reading

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jamie Valdez

Disappearance: June of 2020
Location: Booneville, Arkansas

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:

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

Question: Who or what caused Jamie’s disappearance?

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

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

Row 3
7 of Wands – 5 of Wands – Justice

Reading:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Question: What circumstances caused Jamie’s disappearance?

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

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

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

Reading

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Reading:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kristian Justice and Kaylah Hunter

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

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

Summary:

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

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

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

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

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

Reading:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Question: What happened to Kaylah Hunter?

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

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

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

Reading

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dylan Ehler

Disappearance: 05/06/2020
Location: Truro, Nova Scotia

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:

Dylan Ehler disappeared from his grandmother’s yard on May 6th of 2020. He was 3 years old.

Question: Who or what caused Dylan’s disappearance?

Row 1
9 of Pentacles – Strength (reversed) – King of Wands
Card pulled for the King of Wands: The World

Row 2
5 of Swords (reversed) – The Sun – High Priestess

Row 3
10 of Wands – Knight of Swords (reversed) – 8 of Wands
Card pulled for the Knight of Swords (r): The Magician

Reading:

The first thing I can see about Dylan’s disappearance is that it happened very quickly. Events unfolded rapidly. The first two cards support the claim that he was under the grandmother’s care (Nine of Pentacles can represent a mature and/or older female). Strength reversed shows Dylan as having been in a vulnerable or helpless position.

The King of Wands is the third card. The card pulled in connection with this one is the World. The King card is throwing me a little because it suggests knowledge about, or involvement in, Dylan’s disappearance on the part of an adult male. The World is a card showing the completion of a cycle – whether it be a life or something else. It was pulled for the King card and so it pertains to them and/or their role in all of this.

The Five of Swords reversed is a card that can carry two conflicting meanings. The first is that it can represent a resolution to conflict. However, the second is that it can refer to an escalation of violence. If a person is directly involved and caused Dylan’s disappearance (versus a situation where he wandered away and drowned), then this card could point to revenge or escalating violence. If a crime has been committed, this card points to it being solved eventually – possibly because the person confesses, surrenders, or is apprehended another way.

The Sun can mark the end of a struggle. It can also indicate success at achieving goals. A factor that makes these cards especially difficult to read is the question mark concerning whether this was an accidental drowning or if he was taken. If Dylan was indeed taken, then it could suggest success in terms of the person achieving their goals. If not, then it’s meaning is much harder to pinpoint here.

The High Priestess is a card pertaining to intuition and sacred types of knowledge. In these readings, it can indicate that guidance is being given regarding what has happened in a particular situation. If there are people close to the case who are intuitive, or have strong gut feelings, it makes sense to listen to them and see where they lead. It’s also a card that indicates there is still a sense of mystery surrounding this situation.

If the King of Wands does represent a person that is involved in this then it’s showing someone who is over-burdened and stressed at this point. This would also be a person who feels extremely restricted and like they are dealing with more than they can handle. The meaning of every single card in this reading depends entirely on whether he died accidentally, or someone took him.

The Knight of Swords reversed is showing me someone who has younger adult energy who is using whatever resources they can to find Dylan. This person is viewed negatively by some people, and he has a difficult time expressing himself well, which seems to add to the problem. However, this is a person who is trying to find answers. The Magician suggests that this person may have gotten another person with more knowledge and skills to help them gather information. This person might end up being the key to understanding all this because they are actively seeking answers. The problem is they might be finding it hard to get people to help or cooperate because in the reversed position, there is this sense that people view him negatively. My thoughts keep going to the father so I feel this might be Dylan’s dad. Not sure. Whoever this is…keep seeking answers because at some point it feels to me like you will find them.

The Eight of Wands reiterates that everything happened quickly. The sequence of events unfolded fast, and time was of the essence. Time was lost and I’m seeing that as having been a huge impediment to Dylan having been found. The clock was really ticking on this one. I hate to say this, but if the response had been quicker and more aggressive then we all would probably have the answers by now.

Question: What happened to cause Dylan’s disappearance?

Row 1
The Star (reversed) – Queen of Pentacles (reversed) – 7 of Pentacles (reversed)
Card pulled for the Queen of Pentacles (r): 6 of Wands

Row 2
The Moon (reversed) – King of Wands – The Hermit (reversed)
Card pulled for the King of Wands: King of Pentacles
Card pulled for the King of Pentacles: 2 of Wands (reversed)

Row 3
The World – The Chariot (reversed) – 7 of Cups

Reading

The Star reversed shows a situation where wishes were unfulfilled and there is an overall lack of faith that there will be a happy ending here. I’m not saying this is the case. But this is the mindset surrounding this situation.

The Queen of Pentacles reversed is appearing with the Six of Wands. The attributes exhibited by someone represented by this card are not great ones. The Six of Wands is showing this person as wanting support and positive recognition.

The Seven of Pentacles reversed is a card that depicts a lack of growth or progress. It’s reading like some of the work needed to find Dylan was not expended quickly enough. It’s also suggesting a lack of resource allocation and follow through.  

The Moon reversed is showing things are exactly as they seem here. Now that’s a tricky thing to say because a person’s perspective on what happened here is going to dictate how this card is interpreted. I’m reading this as this disappearance is potentially not as simple as Dylan wandered off and drowned. I’m not dismissing the possibility that he wandered off and then something happened to him; I’m saying that there are elements to all of this that have not come to light yet.

The next card is the King of Wands. It is the second time this one has appeared. This person is important. They must know what really happened because the readings are emphasizing this aspect. The King of Pentacles came up in connection with the King of Wands this time. The Two of Wands reversed came up in reference to both King cards. That is a lack of planning card. Did the person in the King of Wands position tell someone else what happened? Did they ask them to help cover something up? I can’t make sense of this.

It gets weirder with the Hermit reversed because this depicts the person as going into a state of seclusion and isolation. Or maybe this is someone that was already living this way – someone who is on the anti-social side and known to be an outsider in general.

The World has come up in both readings now, which does not feel like it bodes well. But like I always say, this is a tarot reading and is not meant to be taken as fact. The Chariot reversed is showing powerlessness and a lack of control over something. Sometimes it represents acts of aggression, but it just isn’t quite reading that way here. At times, it is literal and represents a vehicle. In the reversed position – if it is literal – then it points to a problem with the vehicle or an accident that occurred in relation to one.

 The Seven of Cups is a wishful and illusionary thinking card. There are so many possibilities and theories circulating that the truth is easily lost. It’s also communicating that people are off track and letting their imagination run wild. Which can be a real problem if it causes people to overlook evidence or possibilities that do not fit their personal beliefs or theories.

I’m going to have to do another reading on this because I just can’t put these pieces together in a way that makes sense in my mind’s eye.

Question: What else do I need to know about Dylan’s disappearance?

Row 1
7 of Swords (reversed) – 4 of Pentacles – 8 of Swords

Row 2
8 of Wands (reversed) – Page of Swords – 9 of Swords
Card pulled for the Page of Swords: 5 of Pentacles

Reading:

Okay, this one is interesting. The Seven of Swords reversed is another card showing me that the truth about what happened here will come out at some point. This card comes up when someone eventually confesses, or something happens that reveals what really happened. The Seven of Swords upright is someone getting away with something. The reversed is the opposite.

The Four of Pentacles shows me that there is a stinginess regarding the use of resources pertaining to this case. At the very least, it reads like an unwillingness to allocate enough money or resources toward finding Dylan only made the situation worse. This is just my interpretation but there have been a number of cards suggesting this.

The Eight of Swords is a card that shows someone as feeling trapped, victimized, or pushed into a corner. It can also depict someone who has been silenced – at least temporarily.

The Eight of Wands reversed is showing a delay in a resolution. While everything immediately surrounding Dylan’s disappearance happened quickly, resolving the situation is not unfolding at the same speed. It feels like this case might not have been handled that well.

There will be a message – perhaps in the form of a tip or someone relaying an important piece of information to someone else – that is going to be communicated regarding this case. It’s going to happen due to some kind of hardship someone will be experiencing – such as a divorce, a financial crisis, or something else that is significant enough to cause a real struggle. Though the message itself will be delayed in terms of timeliness, the method will be something quick (like a call, something stated in person, an email, a text, or something along those lines).

The Nine of Swords is showing someone experiencing mental anguish over this situation. It is a given that people who love Dylan would suffer and so this is more likely to point to whoever it is that has some kind of knowledge about, or role in, this boy’s disappearance.

I cannot confidently say that Dylan did not drown, though the appearance of the King of Wands twice is what really prevents me from feeling satisfied about this being an accident. It very well could be, but the readings are communicating there are missing pieces to this puzzle still.

None of the readings hint at the parents being involved. If anything, the Knight in the first reading might be Dylan’s father. I’m unsure because I don’t have the background on this case that I would need to figure out who might fill what roles. That was a sense I got though. What I would say to people is be careful about getting caught up in beliefs or theories that could point away from real evidence. In my heart and mind, after doing these three readings, I do not see the parents as involved. I don’t know why I feel like I need to keep saying this, but it’s really prominent in my mind.

One takeaway here is that the King of Wands person seems to be a key to finding out exactly what happened. I don’t know who this person is or why they are hiding what they know. But they know something critical to unraveling this and I don’t have a single clue as to who they are. I really can only tell you some of the people they are not (parents).

This one is really nagging at me. They all do, but this one has just taken hold. It’s like something in the universe wants this one resolved so that people can find peace. If someone thinks they know who this man might be, feel free to reach out to me. I feel like there has to be at least one person who has suspicions about this individual.

Harmony Montgomery

Disappearance: October of 2019
Location: Manchester, New Hampshire

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:

Harmony Montgomery is 7 years old. The last confirmed sighting was approximately two years ago. Like Elijah Lewis, who was found deceased in 2021 after disappearing for 6 months, Harmony’s disappearance has now come to the attention of police.

Question: Who or what caused Harmony’s disappearance?

Row 1
The Lovers – Tower (reversed) – 4 of Pentacles

Row 2
Magician (reversed) – Page of Pentacles – 7 of Wands
Card pulled for the Page of Pentacles: Ace of Pentacles (reversed)

Row 3
The Devil – King of Wands (reversed) – Queen of Cups (reversed)
Card pulled for the King of Wands (r): 2 of Pentacles
Card pulled for the Queen of Cups (r): 7 of Cups (reversed)

Reading:

In response to the first question concerning who or what caused Harmony’s disappearance, the cards are showing me a couple. It is reading like an adult man and an adult woman. The Lovers indicates that there is likely a romantic type of relationship between the two people.

The Tower reversed suggests that something happened that was not planned out well in advance. Unlike the upright position, the reversed Tower comes with a sense of impending doom – as though whoever is involved has been waiting for the other shoe to drop with regard to all this. Whoever is involved doesn’t want to be held accountable.

The Four of Pentacles indicates that one or both people have some deep-seated issues going on. These issues extend to how the people maintain their finances and their home. It can point to people who are hoarders or who hold on to people or possessions obsessively at times.

The Magician reversed is showing me that one or both of these people con people or behave in criminal ways. They might try to play the system, so to speak. There are definitely some other issues at play – as evidenced by the appearance of the Devil on the last row – and so I would expect one or both people have some kind of serious addiction. It could be alcohol, drugs, etc.

Okay, so the next two cards I am reading based on meaning and intuition. The first is the Page of Pentacles, which I am seeing as representing Harmony. The card pulled in connection with the Page is the Ace of Pentacles reversed. I’m not taking that as a positive sign because it shows the people involved as feeling like Harmony was a financial burden. This is a tarot reading, and so as always, I caution against taking any of this as fact (without solid evidence backing it), but this card – combined with the meaning of the Four of Pentacles previously – is making it seem like these people were having money issues or wanted more money. There is a stinginess factor here that tells me that a possible scarcity of financial resources contributed to all of this happening.

I think financial and resource-related matters contributed in other ways too. For instance, it’s possible that Harmony was supposed to have been monitored by some kind of youth protection agency (I’m not saying she was, but I’m using this as an example here) and fell into the cracks due to a deficiency in financial and/or human resources. I’m getting that there were failures on more than one level here and I’m seeing a lack of money or resources as a major factor.

I don’t think it is a huge mystery – behind the scenes at least – as to who is responsible. I am getting from the Seven of Wands that these people are already on the defensive and are acting as though they are under attack. So if law enforcement has not found or communicated with them yet (and it honestly feels like they probably have or have at least talked to people who could relay messages to these two people) then these individuals know and understand that’s coming. They are delaying the inevitable as evidenced by this cards and the Tower reversed.

The Devil points to there being a lot of underlying issues at play. We could be looking at drug abuse, alcohol dependency, physical abuses, and on the list goes. The Devil is not a promising card in these readings. I can’t do anything with this card, or interpret it, in any way that is truly positive. There are definitely mental health issues surrounding this whole thing as well. Serious ones that were hinted at in other cards, like the Four of Pentacles (in the context of this reading).

The King of Wands reversed appears to represent the male figure. The Two of Pentacles shows this person has been responding to financial stress and has been trying to balance a range of issues or problems. The person knows they are in a dire or crisis type of situation, but they are still trying to focus and figure out options. This is a person who behaves recklessly and likely has a hot temper. A person represented in the reversed positioning of this card does not exhibit pleasant characteristics or qualities – let’s put it that way.

The Queen of Cups reversed is coming across as the other person involved. If they were not directly involved, then I would say they have knowledge. I don’t know if this is the other half of the couple that the Lovers point to. The Seven of Cups reversed is interesting because it shows this person as feeling trapped in their situation and who is avoiding facing reality. I don’t know if they are directly involved or if they just know/suspect what really happened.

Question: What circumstances caused Harmony’s disappearance?

Row 1
The Devil – 10 of Swords (reversed) – Queen of Swords
Card pulled for the Queen of Swords: Knight of Cups (reversed)
Card pulled for the Knight of Cups (r): Emperor

Row 2
4 of Pentacles – Page of Pentacles – 4 of Swords (reversed)
Card pulled for the Page of Pentacles: Queen of Cups (reversed)
Card pulled for the Queen of Cups (r): The Star

Row 3
4 of Cups – 4 of Wands – 6 of Pentacles (reversed)

Reading

The Devil reappeared in this reading as the first card. It’s telling me that there is some kind of vice or addiction that has contributed to events playing out in the way that they have. The Ten of Swords reversed is emphasizing there are mental health issues associated with one or more people involved. The issues are prominent enough that others were (or still are) aware they exist.

The Queen of Swords, Knight of Cups reversed, and the Emperor is an interesting combination that could be read a few ways. It seems like something got between the person in the Queen position and Emperor position that caused conflict to arise. The Knight of Cups reversed could represent a third person – who has a younger energy – that could have been a child of one or both people. It could also signify some kind of romantic situation that went bad. The Emperor is usually a father figure. I’m taking that to likely be Harmony’s father. I don’t know if the Queen of Swords is Harmony’s biological mother or what. I wish I had some background information on this case because then I might be able to say who fits in what roles here.

The Four of Pentacles showed up in the first reading and it made its appearance in this one as well. The card points to situations where someone is stingy with their money, can be obsessive about people or possessions, and feels a strong need to control financial or material aspects of their life. This is a card that can come up with people that hoard – for all of those reasons. It’s also a mental health card in that it reflects a mindset that is unhealthy, obsessive, and rigid.

The Page of Pentacles came up again in this reading. I could be totally wrong here, but I’m going to go out on a limb with this one and say that the two cards pulled in reference to the Page are implying that the female (Queen of Cups reversed) represents Harmony’s mother or someone who was acting as a mother-type figure when she disappeared. I kind of feel like the Queen of Swords is Harmony’s biological mom, so this Queen of Cups reversed is coming across as the same person discussed at the end of the last reading. The exact same card came up there. And the Star makes me think that Harmony viewed this person in a hopeful way. It seems like she had (or has, since I don’t know her fate for certain) some positive feelings for or about this person.

Okay, the last row is interesting. The Four of Cups shows regret and missed opportunities. The Four of Wands could depict a marriage or family type of celebration. The Six of Pentacles reversed is someone who is coming across as using money or material things to control another person or situation. Is this trying to clue me in that the two people mentioned in the first reading are married, or were married in the not-to-distant past?

I’ve said before that I don’t like to point fingers because these readings aren’t always completely accurate, and my interpretation of the cards is not always correct. However, I have a really strong feeling about who specifically is involved, and I don’t have a good feeling about the final outcome for Harmony. Here’s what I will say. There is one parent – a biological parent – who knows FAR more about what happened than the other. This person can be identified by their obsessive and/or stingy approach to money and resources. They either still have at least one addiction, or they did in the not-too-distant past. This person has some mental health issues that may or may not have been diagnosed (people who know this person are aware of them though). And they have – or at least had when Harmony first went missing – a significant other who has some kind of information. That’s all I feel comfortable saying. I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think this one ends well. I would welcome being wrong in this case.

Bottom line is that these are just tarot readings. I don’t have any way of knowing for certain what happened.
