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


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


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


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.

Jennifer Caridad reading 1


Jennifer Caridad reportedly disappeared on August 8th. Her car was found in a lake on the following day, but there has been no sign of Jennifer and no clear answers about what happened to her.


The Queen of Wands is showing up as the first card and depicts Jennifer as a mature for her age, outgoing, and charismatic person. The Two of Pentacles reversed shows her as having been in a situation where she felt overwhelmed. There were potentially some financial issues or problems relating to a material matter.

The Five of Wands conveys that she was in a situation where there were disagreements and arguments – at least one of which was significant to the question asking what happened to Jennifer. The Eight of Wands reversed shows that the situation, for Jennifer, came to a halt or slowed down significantly due to a problem or a delay. This card can come up in situations where a person feels a sense of panic. The people involved in this situation are more likely to make impulsive decisions that may help or hinder them.

The Lovers reversed is the cards relaying to me that her disappearance is associated with someone she knows, or knew, and it is suggesting the relationship was romantic in nature. The card in its reversed position depicts a situation where two people are at odds. It’s suggesting that poor decision-making occurred in relation to these conflicts as well.

The Nine of Cups is a positive card that might show what Jennifer had been hoping to get out of the relationship. Initially, the whole situation may have felt like it could lead to positive things in her life.

The Queen of Pentacles reversed could represent a third party involved in all of this somehow. The Ace of Wands reversed is coming up in connection with the Queen reversed card and may point to someone receiving bad or unwanted news that would have impacted someone negatively. I don’t know if this news pertained to the person depicted as the Queen reversed or if it was related to Jennifer specifically. The Five of Wands, that appeared earlier in the reading, is also a card that can represent situations where there is competition and so it makes me wonder if there was another woman involved – such as an ex-girlfriend, a present girlfriend, a wife, or someone interested in having a relationship with the person Jennifer was involved with.

The Ace of Swords is a card that comes up for people who are realizing a truth or are asserting their own. It’s a card that can provoke decision-making since it points to a person achieving some degree of clarity about a person or problem.

The Four of Swords reversed almost makes me think that Jennifer might have tried to break it off with the other person associated with the Lovers reversed card. It is a card of awakening and moving toward healing from something. I don’t know what the situation was here but there were definitely factors complicating the relationship that Jennifer would have been wary about around the time of her disappearance.

The Empress is a card that I have seen come up at the end of various readings like this one. I have started to pull a second card in relation to this one since I cannot always make sense of what it means in this particular part of the reading. The Empress could point to a pregnancy, but I’m hesitant to assign a meaning like that without more knowledge about Jennifer’s situation. I pulled the Fool reversed as a card linked to the Empress and this is one that shows a person making poor judgement or acting recklessly. Sometimes it merely depicts a person who is naïve and cannot see the danger or trouble inherent in a situation.

I cannot rule out the possibility that a woman was not somehow involved in all this because the conflict does appear to be related to these factors, though there is no way for me to know for sure as I am unfamiliar with the situation and do not know details at this time.

Question: Who or what caused Jennifer Caridad’s disappearance?

Row 1
Knight of Wands (reversed) – Two of Swords – 5 of Wands (reversed)
Card pulled for the Knight of Wands (r): Two of Cups (reversed)

Row 2
10 of Cups – 9 of Swords (reversed) – Hierophant

Row 3
5 of Pentacles (reversed) – The Star – 5 of Swords (reversed)

Jennifer Caridad reading 2


As I always say, this is just a tarot reading and it should never be taken in place of facts. I do want to point out that this second reading, asking who was involved in Jennifer’s disappearance, has definitely clarified for me that this was related to a romantic relationship she was either in, or one that she had gotten out of recently.

The Knight of Wands reversed can represent a sketchy type of person who has a volatile temper, gets jealous easily, and in some cases can be violent or abusive. At a minimum, a relationship with someone who generally demonstrates these attributes would be considered toxic. I pulled the Two of Cups reversed which shows a romantic partnership that either ended recently or was in the process of ending when Jennifer disappeared. This could be a case where this person lashed out because she made a move to extricate herself from the situation. It is hard to know for sure. However, the cards are definitely pointing solidly in the direction of this other person who was – at one time at least – romantically involved or interested in Jennifer.

The Two of Swords shows Jennifer as having been in a situation where she did not feel she had any good choices. I think she knew that the person was bad for her, but she also didn’t want to fully acknowledge or deal with the challenges that would come from completely writing them off. I have this sense that she felt kind of trapped and unsure about what to do.

The Five of Wands reversed usually depicts a situation in which a conflict ends. Under normal circumstances, it usually means the people worked it all out or called a truce. However, it can also convey a conflict that ended forcefully.

The Ten of Cups is another card that is saying to me that her disappearance was caused by someone she knew well. It was a close to home situation. I don’t know if she lived with this man or what the situation was there, but none of this is reading like a stranger was the primary perpetrator. I say perpetrator because it feels like something bad happened, but in truth there is always the possibility that Jennifer fled to get away from someone. I don’t see cards that are compelling me to lean toward that possibility, but I don’t want to dismiss it entirely.

Another element of the Ten of Cups that I want to point out is that it shows Jennifer as having close family connections. It is hard to see her just walking away from her family and not telling them why she was doing it. The bonds feel tight with regard to her actual family, is what I’m trying to explain here. Every family has its issues, but I’m not seeing anything negative here that would have contributed in any way to what may have happened to Jennifer. It’s “close to home” so to speak, but more in a non-familial relationship way.

The Nine of Swords reversed is reiterating that in Jennifer’s mind, she was trying to make plans to improve the entire situation. I don’t think this was something she could easily walk away from, and it feels like she recognized this fact. She was probably experiencing a lot of stress and anxiety.

The Hierophant is a card that can be taken a few ways. On one hand, it’s a card pointing to institutions and/or spirituality. It can pertain to ethical and moral matters too. In some situations, it is also a card conveying forgiveness for one’s past transgressions. I’m not sure what to do with this card here but I think it’s spiritual in nature due to the Five of Pentacles reversed. While the upright position of the Five of Pentacles can show someone who is disconnected from their spirituality or spiritual beliefs, the reversed position can convey the opposite. It’s also a card associated with someone who is taking steps to overcome difficult situations. I think there were money factors involved in all of this, but I can’t make sense of how or why. Someone close to Jennifer might have those answers and this might resonate with them.

The Star suggests hope in terms of identifying who is responsible for her disappearance and bringing them to justice. Again, there is always the possibility that Jennifer fled and is hiding out somewhere. I’m just not seeing any cards that are pointing me solidly in that kind of direction. Jennifer is coming through as a warm and caring person. If she fled, she would have told people she cared about, and they would have probably assisted her once they understood her situation. But like I said before, I’m not ready to totally rule it out.

The Five of Swords reversed is showing me a conclusion to all this so the person will be caught, and I do think prosecution will be successful. Or at least, that is how this reading is coming across to me. I think a lot more information will come out and it will help people make more sense out of what has happened.
