Forensic Cartomancy: Lenormand Cards Discuss Missing Child DeOrr Kunz Jr

As anyone who’s ever cast and read a simple three card Past-Present-Future spread knows, the cards can certainly “speak” to something that has happened in the past, as well as suggest the probable future concerning the question(s) at hand.

I normally use astrology to ascertain the energies surrounding missing person cases. From time to time, however, when prompted, I may also throw a card spread or two, to clarify, confirm or refute information I’ve gleaned from astrological analysis.

If you follow missing persons cases, you likely know that on July 10, 2015 in Leadore, Idaho, DeOrr Kunz, Jr., a healthy 2-1/2 year old child, disappeared into nowhere while on a camping trip with his mother, father, great-grandpa and family friend. As of the date and time of this post, DeOrr Kunz, Jr. has not been found.

Theories as to what happened to this child include (in no particular order): stranger abduction; harm suffered at the hands of one or more of the caretakers and subsequent cover-up; wandering away from the campsite and either (a) drowning or (b) getting carried off by a mountain lion.

The problem with all these theories is that there is no credible evidence that any of them could have happened. Yet, on the other hand, children (or adults for that matter) simply do not “disappear into nowhere.”

So what really happened here?

I’m not going to go into what I first ascertained from careful analysis of the pertinent astrology charts other than to say that there were strong indications of death, likely due to drowning. A few days later, still mulling over the charts and their “testimony,” it occurred to me that perhaps a Lenormand Square of 9 could provide additional information. I cast the spread specifically to address these questions:

The Questions for Lenormand:

  1. What (really) happened to DeOrr Kunz, Jr.?
  2. Who (or what) is responsible?
  3. Will he be found?

I pre-decided that the cards in Row 1 would address the first question, the cards in Row 2 would address the second question and the cards in Row 3 would address the third question. Any other information I could gather from the way the cards fell would be a bonus.

Here’s what I got:

 

Lenormand Square of 9 for Missing Child DeOrr Kunz, Jr.: 11 Whip - 23 Mice - 6 Clouds - 34 Fish - 12 Birds - 17 Storks - 30 Lilies - 21 Mountain - 16 Stars
Lenormand Square of 9 for Missing Child DeOrr Kunz, Jr.: 11 Whip – 23 Mice – 6 Clouds – 34 Fish – 12 Birds – 17 Storks – 30 Lilies – 21 Mountain – 16 Stars

 

What Happened? 11 WHIP – 23 MICE – 6 CLOUDS

 

Lenormand Square of 9 for Missing Child DeOrr Kunz Row 1: 11 Whip - 23 Mice - 6 Clouds
Lenormand Square of 9 for Missing Child DeOrr Kunz Row 1: 11 Whip – 23 Mice – 6 Clouds

These cards suggested a frantic runaround: frenzied activity, running around in circles, stress, exhaustion, confusion. In simplest terms, the Lenormand cards seemed to suggest that the child wandered off and got lost.

Who (or What) is Responsible? 34 FISH – 12 BIRDS – 17 STORKS

 

Lenormand Square of 9 for Missing Child DeOrr Kunz Jr Row 2: 34 Fish - 12 Birds - 17 Storks
Lenormand Square of 9 for Missing Child DeOrr Kunz Jr Row 2: 34 Fish – 12 Birds – 17 Storks

I immediately keyed into the people cards: King of Diamonds (34 FISH) and Queen of Hearts (17 STORKS) — dad and mom. With 12 BIRDS in the middle of the row and as the central card in the Square of 9, there was likely a communication issue with Great-Grandpa (King of Spades – 30 LILIES), who from news accounts may have been suffering from some degree of confusion (6 CLOUDS). Because of the positioning of 23 MICE + 6 CLOUDS, I sensed a miscommunication or a lack of communication.

It’s interesting to note this row starts with 34 FISH. The “story” surrounding DeOrr’s disappearance is that the mom, dad and family friend decided to go fishing. The parents allegedly asked the child if he wanted to come along or stay behind with Great-Grandpa (30 LILIES) and DeOrr chose Great-Grandpa, who somehow lost track of DeOrr (6 CLOUDS) and then mistakenly assumed the child had changed his mind and followed the parents.

Will the Child Be Found? 30 LILIES – 21 MOUNTAIN – 16 STARS

 

Lenormand Square of 9 for Missing Child DeOrr Kunz Jr. Row 3 - 30 Lilies - 21 Mountain - 16 Stars
Lenormand Square of 9 for Missing Child DeOrr Kunz Jr. Row 3 – 30 Lilies – 21 Mountain – 16 Stars

Both LILIES and MOUNTAIN suggest a long time, with MOUNTAIN additionally suggesting obstacles and delays. [Note: LILIES can sometimes be a death marker. WHIP, FISH and LILIES read vertically suggests a struggle in water that leads to the grave.] 16 STARS at the end of the row points to success, so I think, yes, DeOrr Kunz, Jr. will eventually be recovered, after a “long time” and many delays and obstacles.

I noted with interest that the card numbers assigned to Row 3 reduce to 13 (30 + 21 + 16 = 67 = 6 + 7 = 13), which equals 13 CHILD. That prompted me to flip over cards in the remaining Lenormand deck until I found 13 CHILD, which I selected along with the card before and the card after:

This combination suggests the child may have suffered an accident or, in some other way, was suddenly separated him from his caregivers (SCYTHE) while “on a journey / taking a walk” (CROSSROADS). The cards appear to support the message contained in Row 1 which indicated the child simply wandered away and got lost. Unfortunately, SCYTHE to the right of CHILD does not point to an eventual happy resolution.

When the Cards Won’t Speak, Consult your Astrology Chart

Just because I read cards every day doesn’t mean I always get advance notice on what the day might bring.

What happened yesterday is a perfect example.

I had a huge blow-out with one of my daughters, right in front of both my grandsons, over something that should never have set either one of us off in the first place. I tried to make amends but my daughter was still in somewhat of a huff when she left my house.

Now mind you, I’ve long since given up on wondering why my cards won’t alert me to unpleasant upsets before they happen. For whatever reason, they usually don’t.

Despite this, there’s always a reason the you-know-what hits the fan, and curious minds need to know. So my next step in trying to figure out what triggered this unexpected and unpredicted outburst was to check the astrological transits to my natal chart. I figured angry, emotional outbursts must have something to do with MARS, the MOONMERCURY, and maybe URANUS since (a) Uranus is associated with sudden, unexpected events, eruptions, and the like, and (b) Mercury squares Uranus in my natal chart.

After calculating the charts, I found transit MOON (the action; also emotions) opposing natal MERCURY (speech) and squaring natal URANUS (eruptions). Moreover, transit MOON (emotions) was traveling through Aries (aggression, impulsivity) in my natal 5th House of Children. Additionally, transit MOON (emotions) was in sesquisquare (conflictual) aspect to natals MARS (anger), transit MERCURY (speech) was contraparallel (conflictual) to natal MARS (anger), and transit MARS (anger) was contraparallel (conflictual) to natal URANUS (sudden outbursts).

Talk about the stars being against me. No wonder I blew up at my daughter…
