Summary:

Heather Elvis was 20 years old when she disappeared from Carolina Forest in South Caroline. It appears that two people have been convicted of crimes connected to her disappearance, though it seems they claim they are innocent. Heather is still missing.

Question: What circumstances caused Heather’s disappearance?

Row 1
Queen of Swords (r) – 9 of Pentacles (r) – Judgement
Card pulled for Queen of Swords (r): King of Swords
Card pulled for King of Swords: 3 of Pentacles

Row 2
4 of Pentacles (r) – 3 of Wands (r) – 4 of Wands (r)

Row 3
The World (r) – Page of Pentacles (r) – Ace of Swords

Card pulled for Page of Pentacles (r): The Tower

Reading

The Queen of Swords reversed, paired with the King of Swords, is suggesting that Heather was dealing with two people. The person with the adult female energy would have been someone who could be spiteful and mean with their words. This person can behave maliciously and is sometimes overly dependent on others. The King of Swords may represent someone with masculine and adult energy who tends to overthink things. This person may have – or may still – come across as cold and unemotional. The Three of Pentacles indicate these two people were either literally working together or they were working together toward a specific goal.

The Nine of Pentacles reversed shows a situation where one person may have been financially dependent on another. There is a feminine component to this card, and it can sometimes point to fertility or reproductive issues. The Queen of Swords reversed can as well.

Judgement could position Heather as looking at her life and feeling compelled to make changes for the better. There’s a sense of strong self-assessment concerning one’s past and present behavior or choices.

The Four of Pentacles reversed might indicate that Heather was trying to rid herself of people or things in her life that were not really serving her or acting as a positive influence.

The Three of Wands reversed makes it seem like Heather was not finding it as easy to move on with her life, or unburden herself, as she had originally expected or hoped. She was met with unexpected obstacles and delays, which was probably frustrating to her.

The Four of Wands reversed – the card directly blocking her progress – is one that can represent unhappy families or conflict within a home environment. I don’t know if this pertained to her own home environment or if it goes back to the two people the reading opened with. Those two people have a really strong presence and energy over this entire reading – to the extent that it almost overshadows anything I’m getting about Heather individually.

The World reversed shows that Heather was still in the process of trying to rid herself of people or problems when she disappeared. She had not yet been successful at it. I get the sense from this and other cards that she was likely feeling a lot of frustration about her situation (and the lack of progress).

The Page of Pentacles reversed typically represents some kind of bad news or a negative influence. Often it is related to a person’s past and current choices. For example, if Heather felt that she wasn’t making the progress she should in her goals to get a person – or people – out of her life then there’s the possibility she hadn’t completely cut the cord, so to speak.  And the Tower shows that situation as leading her into a disaster that was outside of her control and influence. Something very bad and significant happened at this point.

The Ace of Swords is a card about ideas, clarity, and truth. The details surrounding this situation have already become clearer.

Question: Who or what caused Heather’s disappearance?

Row 1
3 of Pentacles (r) – 2 of Swords (r) – 9 of Wands

Row 2
7 of Swords – Justice – King of Cups
Card pulled for King of Cups: 5 of Cups (r)

Row 3
The World – High Priestess (r) – 3 of Swords

Reading:

This reading shifts our perspective to the person or people involved. The Three of Pentacles reversed suggests that there was more than one person involved and that there was a lack of alignment in terms of these people’s goals. There was a lot of conflict, and the people involved were not on the same page.

The Two of Swords reversed suggest that either we already know who is responsible for this or we will know. Neither reading gives a sense of a lot being hidden in this regard. I think there are some lesser-known motives and happenings associated with all of this, but the people involved are not a secret. Many of their lies have been exposed already.

The person or people involved are still fighting this situation. I don’t really know what that means, but there is a sense of there being this ongoing battle.

The Seven of Swords shows the person or people as being deceitful and engaging in risky behavior. They believe – or believed – they would get away with what they did.

But Justice is saying they got – or will get – what they have coming to them in a legal and ethical sense.

The King of Cups, paired with the Five of Cups reversed, suggest that the person with the adult masculine energy is doing a better job of moving on from the situation and accepting it – from an emotional standpoint – than the other individual. Their energy comes across very differently here than it did previously, which could indicate the other person’s influence on them (or the combined influence of energies on the relationship/partnership) was negative.

The World shows the situation as having come full circle. High Priestess reversed is another card suggesting possible fertility issues. I don’t know why this theme keeps coming up, but it is prominent when considering both of the readings. It also points to some remaining mysterious elements with regard to agendas, motives, etc.

The Three of Swords shows this situation as ending in heartbreak for one or more people involved. It did not end as hoped and at least one of the people involved feels as though they have been betrayed by the other to some degree.

Oracle Card Readings

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

The Witch – Sewer Mermaid

The Witch is a card about magic and change – bringing about change through ritual or magic. An interesting thing to note, that could mean nothing at all, is the Page of Pentacles reversed is sometimes a card indicating dark magic as having some involvement. The Sewer Mermaid indicates that there was someone involved with a poor body image – whose deep insecurities were a major contributor to the situation/events.

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

Nightsong – Shallow Grave

The Nightsong either recommends that someone pursue a new path to reach their goals, or it warns of someone continuing on the same path. Shallow Grave indicates that one or more of the people that caused Heather’s disappearance are finding it difficult to move on. They are really stuck in the past and probably talk about it a lot – portraying it in a false and idealized fashion.

Question: Why is Heather missing?

Winter – Violet Dutchess

Winter is a card about moving on from something that isn’t good for you or no longer serves you. She disappeared because she was trying to get away from something or someone. On the flip side, it can also point to someone else making her disappear as a means of releasing what they felt was a burden on them. Violet Dutchess can come up when someone feels that they have been wronged, or that something that has happened is unjust. Sometimes it points to breaking real, or spiritual, law to bring about change. The circumstances of a situation dictate if this is good or bad.

Shannan Gilbert

Disappearance: May 1, 2010
Location: Oak Beach, New York

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:

Shannon Gilbert was 24-years-old when she reportedly met up with a man in Oak Beach. She was a sex worker and had gone to meet with a client. While at the man’s house, she called the police and told them that someone was trying to kill her. She eventually ran from the house and disappeared, only to be found deceased in a marsh. She was found in fairly close proximity to the remains of many other women who worked in the same profession.

Question: What happened to cause Shannan’s death?

Row 1
Strength (r) – 2 of Wands (r) – Queen of Wands (r)
Card pulled for Queen of Wands (r): 10 of Swords

Row 2
King of Cups (r) – Judgement (r) – 5 of Wands (r)
Card pulled for King of Cups (r): The Moon

Row 3
8 of Wands (r) – 6 of Pentacles – 4 of Wands

Reading

Before I got done shuffling, I had the King of Swords reversed pop out on me so I’m going to include it in this reading. This could represent a masculine, mature (adult) type of energy. One of the reasons this card is significant is because it can represent people who work in particular fields – such as lawyers, law enforcement, military, etc. In the reversed position, this would be someone abusing their authority though. A lot of times, people represented by this card are outspoken. They can be articulate, but they use their words to manipulate situations, people, and facts.

That card aside, straight away in the reading we have Strength reversed. This shows Shannan as having been in a vulnerable situation where she felt uncertain and lacked confidence. There is a sense of weakness associated with this card on emotional, physical, and/or mental levels.

The Two of Wands reversed can indicate a lack of planning and a general fear of the unknown. Shannan may have gone into something thinking she was playing it safe and avoiding risk, but the card indicates there were possibly obstacles or issues that she just was not quite picking up on right away.

The Queen of Wands reversed tends to be a card with feminine and adult female energy. I think this card might represent Shannan because when it is combined with the Ten of Swords, it is showing someone who has hit their bottom. The worst has happened to them, is what this card is basically saying. If that’s true, and it does represent Shannan around the time of her death, then it’s showing that she was not in a great place mentally or emotionally. There would have been things going on in her life, and with her, that made her especially vulnerable to a person or people inclined to take advantage. The only real alternative here is that this card represents someone else entirely and they are a direct contributor to the worst happening. It’s like an ending of sorts occurred, and it was not pleasant emotionally and/or physically. It may or may not directly represent her death.

The King of Cups reversed can be someone who comes across as sympathetic and a friend, but that is typically a façade when the card is reversed. It is likely representative of someone who is overly sensitive, emotional, or behaves in a way that is immature considering their age. The Moon, combined with this card, is telling me there was a lot of deception involved in what happened to Shannan. This person probably deceived her and may have somehow lured her to her death. The card can sometimes point to hidden danger or people with bad intentions that are adept at hiding it.

Judgement reversed can have a lot of meanings. My first sense of this card, in the context of this reading, is that it’s showing a situation where someone repeatedly makes poor decisions and continues cycles that are destructive. I also feel like there is this component of being the target of malicious words or gossip. Maybe someone targeted her because they were making judgements about her as a person and her choices. The card indicates an outcome outside of Shannan’s control.

Five of Wands reversed can represent the end or resolution of something. I’ve talked about this card before in terms of it either representing a peaceful end to a conflict or a violent one. Someone perceived there was a conflict or problem, and then it was solved. Whatever that means or entails.

The Eight of Wands reversed is basically showing me that events did not align in Shannan’s favor. She would have felt like everything was working against her and her situation was out of her control. It can represent someone who feels a strong sense of fear or panic. There’s also this feeling of bad timing or being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Six of Pentacles is showing someone in a better position financially and/or materially and offering something to her that probably would have felt generous – something big enough to motivate her to get involved in whatever it was that got her into the situation she ended up in.

Normally, the Four of Wands is a positive card. This reading is far from that and so it more than likely communicates a sense of teamwork or working together. My impression is that there were people and/or forces that all came together to make this happen. She was presented with a situation that looked like it was beneficial, surrounding by at least one person who pretended to be something they weren’t, and something terrible happened.

Question: Who or what caused Shannan’s death?

Row 1
3 of Wands – 6 of Swords – 9 of Wands (r)

Row 2
King of Cups (r) – 8 of Wands – Queen of Wands (r)
Card pulled for King of Cups (r): Empress
Card pulled for King of Wands (r): 9 of Pentacles

Row 3
5 of Wands – Queen of Pentacles (r) – Emperor (r)
Card pulled for Queen of Pentacles (r): 3 of Swords (r)

Reading:

It definitely seems there was more than one person involved in all this. I got the King of Cups reversed and the Queen of Wands reversed again. I got them in the first reading. Now I am not so sure that the Queen of Wands reversed represented Shannan. I think there might be a woman involved in this – possibly someone who helped lure her or convince her the situation was safe – or someone who has the energy of a female. There is a lot of female energy in this reading, and I can’t shake this impression that there is a woman directly linked to all of this. I’ll get into that all more though as I go through the cards.

The Three of Wands is showing me someone who probably did – or does – travel. This is probably someone who feels good about the choices they have made and has experienced success. They felt – or feel – like they worked hard, and it has paid off.

The Six of Swords is suggesting to me that this person feels like they have moved beyond whatever happened with Shannan and those surrounding circumstances. There is a kind of calm-after-the-storm sense to this card and so maybe they came under suspicion at one time, or felt they had some heat on them, but they have moved on from that.

The Nine of Wands reversed is a person that is stubborn and does not learn from past mistakes or situations. They might be prone to paranoia or feeling overwhelmed by situations or problems. There are multiple cards in these readings that suggest there is a lack of learning from the past, but I can’t tell if this is the card’s way of saying that what happened with Shannan is a part of someone’s repetitive mistake cycle or what.

This person comes across – or did – as someone with good intentions. People perceive that this person is safe and friendly. They aren’t. The Empress likely represents a female that was – or still is – involved with this person. I am not getting the sense that this is someone that merely has some suspicions about this person; instead, it feels like they are a direct force in all of this. And the Empress would come across positively as well. Like I always say, it’s just a tarot reading, and it could be completely off. However, if this is even remotely accurate then we are probably looking at two primary players in this and one of them is likely a woman.

What I don’t like about this reading is that cards like the Three of Wands and the Eight of Wands make it seem like the person – or people – have been living a good or decent life in terms of being enjoyable for them. The person or people might feel like the universe supports their endeavors. I don’t know how else to explain that part, but in both readings, there is this impression that there is a feeling of being justified – almost like someone is doing something beneficial. I can’t explain that. I can only say I am compelled to share that.

The Queen of Wands reversed came up before. This time the card appeared with the 9 of Pentacles which is a card that depicts someone successful and probably mature in age (not a teenager or young adult). I think this probably represents the female. It can be someone who has achieved financial and material independence – either on their own or through marriage. They may even come across as elegant to people. Ironically, the Nine of Pentacles reversed can come up when there is prostitution associated with a situation. But in this reading, it is upright.

The Five of Wands shows a lot of conflict and disagreements. There can be a competitive side to this card also. I don’t know if it is denoting what is going on in the person or people’s life or if it is just showing them as being someone that causes conflict. Someone that likes to argue and get their way. Someone who does not shy away from a problem or a fight. Perhaps, right now, they are experiencing significant problems or disruption. I’m not really sure with this one.

The Queen of Pentacles reversed could be someone already mentioned, or it could be another person with knowledge or involvement in what happened to Shannan. Sometimes this card is linked to prostitution. It can be connected to people that are social climbers and use people for material or financial ends.

The Emperor reversed is someone who is – or was – likely in a respectable kind of position or profession. However, it is someone who would have used whatever power and respect they had in harmful ways. Such a person is usually controlling. They can be rigid in their thinking and behavior. Other people may view them as a leader or as someone with notable accomplishments. It can indicate significant corruption as well – either personal or systemic.

There is definitely a sense of something bigger going on with all of this and I think there is at least one person who has been directly involved that might come as a surprise to people. I don’t think that what happened to Shannan was an accident. Based entirely on the readings, I think more than one person is involved – but I’m not sure of their exact role. The person that came up in the first reading – with the King of Swords reversed – is probably out there spreading false information and talking about the case. I just see this person being active in discussions (possibly even online) about the case and intent on shifting blame or victim-shaming even.

There’s a lot of information that we don’t have here – that is available in some way (I don’t know how but I do think it’s out there) – that would shed a lot more light on this if we had it.

Logan Losurdo

Disappearance: 11/26/2021
Found deceased: 03/10/2022

Location: NSW Central Coast, found near Soldier’s Beach

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:

Logan Losurdo was 20 years old when he was last seen on November 26th of 2021. His body was recovered on March 10th of 2022, near Soldier’s Beach, Norah Head. Logan is described as being from Magenta on the New South Wales Central Coast.

Question: What circumstances caused Logan’s death?

Row 1
Queen of Pentacles (r) – King of Swords – King of Pentacles (r)
Card pulled for the Queen of Pentacles (r): Ace of Wands (r)
Card pulled for the King of Swords: Queen of Swords (r)
Card pulled for the Queen of Swords (r): Page of Pentacles (r)
Card pulled for the Page of Pentacles (r): The World (r)
Card pulled for the King of Pentacles (r): 6 of Cups

Row 2
Knight of Pentacles (r) – 3 of Wands – The Emperor
Card pulled for the Knight of Pentacles (r): 5 of Wands (r)

Row 3
Ace of Pentacles – 7 of Wands (r) – 2 of Cups (r)

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.

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.

Rebecca Zahau

Date of death: 07/13/2011
Location: Coronado, California

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:

On July 13th of 2011, a woman named Rebecca Zahau (also referred to as Rebecca Nalepa) was found hanging at the Spreckels Mansion in Coronado, California. She lived with her boyfriend, Jonah Shacknai.

Question: Who caused Rebecca’s death?

Row 1
9 of Cups – 10 of Cups – 4 of Swords

Row 2
7 of Swords (reversed) – Ace of Pentacles – King of Swords (reversed)
Card pulled for the King of Swords (r): Strength (reversed)

Row 3
6 of Pentacles (reversed) – King of Wands – Empress
Card pulled for the King of Wands: 9 of Pentacles

Reading:

So I can tell you right now that the reading is conveying to me that this was a murder. This was not a suicide. I’ll get into that in more detail shortly, but I knew the answer to my question before I even processed the entire reading because of the appearance of the Empress at the end. It’s a tarot reading. It is not proof of anything, but this reading is a clear one to me. It is one of the more straight forward ones I have interpreted in recent times.

The Nine of Cups, appearing at the start of the reading, tells me that Rebecca was happy before the events that transpired with her boyfriend’s young son, Max. Max’s death was ruled as accidental – stemming from injuries he sustained inside the house while he was playing. So before Max became critically injured (I believe that he died within days of Rebecca’s death), Rebecca was happy. She felt she had a good life, she felt thankful for it, and things were going well.

The Ten of Cups really serves to emphasize that Rebecca had a happy home life. Her relationship with Jonah appears to have been solid and it is not reading as a dysfunctional situation/household/relationship. It shows her as having been invested emotionally and that she had a desire to contribute to a positive environment.

The Four of Swords shows me that at the time of Rebecca’s death, she was definitely stressed and feeling overwhelmed. She was in a state where she was trying to cope with everything that was happening, and she was trying to gather the energy she felt she would need to help others do the same.

The Seven of Swords reversed shows that the person responsible for her death – and it is not Rebecca – is someone who was or is two-faced, a pathological liar, and a whole host of other unpleasant descriptors. The person who murdered her should have been apprehended and held criminally liable quickly, but it seems that did not happen.

The person responsible was either someone known or related to Jonah or Rebecca. They were seeking a new start – particularly as far as jobs and money were concerned. The Ace of Pentacles shows me this. The card is also suggesting that financial or material factors played a role in protecting the person or people involved (you will understand why I am putting “people” out there as a possibility soon).

The King of Swords reversed represents the person who actually committed the crime. The corresponding card is Strength reversed. It communicates that this person made Rebecca feel helpless and victimized. This person is directly responsible. The King of Swords reversed is a person who manipulates situations and people – primarily through their words or methods of communicating.

The Six of Pentacles reversed shows a scenario where the person mentioned above was abusing or taking advantage of someone else’s generosity. I don’t know all the specifics on that aspect, but there was an imbalance in terms of financial or material resources. And this factors into all of this, though I don’t yet understand exactly how.

The King of Wands, in its upright position, is making an appearance before the reading is finished and I am not sure if this is because this person is involved in some way or if it is because they have information or knowledge that would expose the person who committed the murder. The Nine of Pentacles, pulled in combination with the King, shows me someone who is doing well financially and is self-reliant. They had, or have, a good amount of financial or material freedom is how I would describe it. It reads like it might be Rebecca’s boyfriend, but I’m not in a position to say for sure. Because I don’t know, and this reading is not providing full clarity here.

The Empress is a card that I often get at the end – or close to the end – of readings where a murder has occurred. Before I started publishing readings, I spent a lot of time practicing on cases that had already been solved – particularly ones I knew little about before I did the readings. Then I would go back and see what interpretations were right and try to learn from the ones that I got wrong. I refer to those as after-the-fact readings because they really only serve to help me understand what specific cards are likely to mean in readings where the answers have not yet been uncovered. This card, combined with other give-away cards pointing to murder, is how and why I feel confident saying that I believe Rebecca did not cause her own death. This was not a suicide. Another person caused her death and it was deliberate.

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.
