Forensic Cartomancy: Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Offer Possible Clue to Gabriella Doolin Murder

According to cartomancy lore, when cards “fly out of the deck” inadvertently landing face up “on the floor” during your shuffle, whatever those particular cards represent will come “to your door.”

This morning, while shuffling for a daily draw with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards, that’s exactly what happened. The dropped cards that landed “face up” on the floor fell in two groups: DOG + MOUNTAIN and BOOK + ROSES + PARK.

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

 

Curious as to what these cards might be telling me, I spent a few minutes jotting down possible interpretations.

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 27 Dog - 32 Mountain http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 27 Dog – 32 Mountain
  1. Someone you know (DOG) rejects you, cuts you off, or is acting cold towards you (MOUNTAIN)
  2. A stalker (MOUNTAIN) is someone you know (DOG)
  3. A friend (DOG) is facing obstacles, frustrations, challenges or delays (MOUNTAIN)
  4. A stubborn (MOUNTAIN) friend (DOG)
  5. A friend/ someone you know (DOG) is delayed (MOUNTAIN)
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 22 Book - 41 Roses - 26 Park http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 22 Book – 41 Roses – 26 Park
  1. People might enjoy/ appreciate (ROSES) card readings (BOOK) posted to social media networks (PARK)
  2. Attracting a secret admirer (BOOK + ROSES) at a social function (PARK)
  3. Noticing/ coming across a book (BOOK) on how to plant roses (ROSES) in one’s garden (PARK)

I had no reason to think the cards might be talking about anything else. Done deal. I’d wait and see if any of these scenarios popped up over the next day or two.

Setting my cards and notebook aside, I booted up the computer and checked out Google News, something I do every morning. To my shock and horror, I saw the story about little Gabriella Doolin, a seven year old  Scottsville, KY child who vanished on Saturday, November 15, 2015 during a well-attended high school football game. Little Gabriella was found dead only 25 minutes after she had been reported missing. Law enforcement declared the death a homicide due to the state in which the child was found and evidence at the scene.

My dear Readers, I am a mother and a grandmother. Cases involving babies and children especially tear my heart up. To say they disturb me greatly would be an understatement. After clicking through and reading the online news reports, I cast a forensic astrology chart based on the Reported Missing time at the location of the incident:

My handwritten notes will give you an indication of my preliminary thoughts and suspicions.

*******************************

As I was working with the astrology chart, jotting down notes, out of nowhere the images of DOG + MOUNTAIN and BOOK + ROSES + PARK from the Gypsy Witch cards that had dropped to the floor earlier this morning appeared in my head. I swear my mouth dropped open. I suddenly realized the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards had provided me with possible clues regarding this poor child’s murder before I had even read the articles that caused me to become aware of it.

Gypsy Witch Possible Clue #1: DOG + MOUNTAIN

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 27 Dog – 32 Mountain

DOG: friendly person, someone you know, someone you trust, possibly a family member, usually male

MOUNTAIN: predator, enemy [Note above I jotted down “stalker” as a possible interpretation.]

It is highly likely Gabriella knew (and possibly trusted) her attacker.

Gypsy Witch Possible Clue #2: BOOK + ROSES + PARK

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 22 Book - 41 Roses - 26 Park http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 22 Book – 41 Roses – 26 Park

BOOK: teacher, student, secretive person, educated person. Jack of Hearts on this card gives an indication of a young male, possibly a family member or a young man well known (and likely trusted) to Gabriella and her family. Very possibly a young man who attends or teaches at the high school where the football game was being played. Secrets and/or hidden information in general.

ROSES: attraction, good looks, healthy, “look don’t touch” (thorns). Is this card describing the perp or Gabriella, who was a pretty young girl? Please note well: in cartomancy, 9 of Spades can be interpreted as “force,” as well as “rape.” ROSES/9 of Spades suggests the perp forced himself upon Gabriella, at the least, and raped her at worst. If nothing else, it certainly seems to be an indication of his intent.

PARK: public gathering, socializing, an actual park. While the card could describe a “social butterfly” type of person, perhaps somewhat superficial and likely single, I’m leaning towards seeing it as a location card, i.e., where the event took place.

Was the perp someone who attends either Gabriella’s or her older brother’s school (BOOK) who was secretly intrigued by or obsessed with (BOOK + ROSES) her good looks/ pretty face (ROSES)? Did he take advantage of the cover of the crowd (PARK) and lure her away, intending to force himself (9 of Spades) upon her?

DOG says she knew (and likely trusted) him. MOUNTAIN says he’s a predator. BOOK + ROSES suggests a covert, hidden attraction. PARK is a multiplier card, suggesting “more of” whatever the card to its left indicates. So the combination could be saying “a secret, possibly obsessive attraction.” Ominously, the 9 of Spades on the ROSES card screams “rape.” PARK shows the location where the event took place.

Gypsy Witch Clarification Cards: RIDER + FISH + SNAKE

Since the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards is a 52-card deck (not counting the three Jokers), I calculated the Clarification cards by adding the card values and reducing to a number equaling 52 or below. I did this in sets (DOG + MOUNTAIN and BOOK + ROSES + PARK), as well as adding all five cards together.

DOG + MOUNTAIN = 27 + 32 = 59 = 5+9 = 14 = 14 RIDER

BOOK + ROSES + PARK = 22 + 41 + 26 = 89 = 8+9 = 17 = 17 FISH

All five cards together = 27 + 32 + 22 + 41 + 26 = 148 = 1+4+8 = 13 = 13 SNAKE

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 14 Rider - 17 Fish - 13 Snake http://livingwithcards.com

Once again the cards suggest a young man (RIDER). He is likely fit, active, and possibly an athlete. He may “come from money” or have dark hair (FISH). This person likely knows how to “slither around” without being detected (SNAKE). He could have a charming, seductive/luring (even hypnotic) way about him (think Snake in the Garden of Eden tempting Eve). Also, snakes often strike without warning. According to news reports, one minute Gabriella was happily watching the football game, the next minute she was gone.

This is the second Jack we’ve seen in these card draws. Could the perp be a relative / related to the family (Diamonds) in some way? Could there be two perps (two Jacks in the card draws)?

**************************************

I could probably add another thousand words to this post, but frankly, I’m feeling wiped. I can only hope and pray the Scottsville, KY police solve the case quickly, bringing the perpetrator to justice and providing closure to the family.

If anyone cares to share insights and/or other interpretations for either the chart or the cards I’ve drawn, please use the comment feature.

In the meantime, R.I.P., little Gabriella.

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins

UPDATE: November 20, 2015:

Kentucky Police arrested Timothy Madden of Scottsville, age 38, for the kidnapping, rape, sodomy and murder of 7 year old Gabriella Doolin. According to news reports, Madden is known to the family (went to high school with Gabriella’s father) and sat near them during the football game at which Gabriella disappeared.

DOG + MOUNTAIN was chillingly accurate: someone known to the family (DOG); a predator (MOUNTAIN).

BOOK showed the connection to the school. (Madden attended Scottsville High School with the victim’s father. Madden attended the football game and sat near the family.)

ROSES showed the rape, and PARK was obviously a location card (public event, gathering outdoors).

The Clarification cards are less clear to me at this time, other than SNAKE does have a sexual connotation. If you’ve seen the photos of Madden, obviously, he does not have much hair and doesn’t seem to ‘come from money’ (FISH). He is also not what I would consider to be a ‘young man’ (RIDER).



Reading with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Part 4

The more I work with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards, the more I enjoy them.

I mentioned in Part 2 of this series that the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards do not follow the rules. While all 52 playing cards (plus 3 Jokers) are in the deck and they can be read as such, the cards also depict 35 of the 36 Lenormand images, causing one to assume they can be read that way as well. Until you discover the card numbers assigned are not the same and the playing card insets are different as well. What’s with that?

Gypsy Witch 27 Dog (4 of Diamonds) vs Lenormand 18 Dog (10 of Hearts)

And then you might notice, if you make Gypsy Witch #43 Lightning (6 of Clubs) equal Lenormand 36 Cross (6 of Clubs) which works for me, there are still 16 additional images that are not contained in a regular Lenormand deck. Hmmmm. And on top of that, there are “fortunes” or “prophecies” written on each of the 52 cards. (There are no “fortunes” or “prophecies” written on the three Joker cards.)

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 45 Order (Jack of Clubs) – 49 Eye (4 of Spades) – 24 Hand in Hand (King of Hearts) – 38 Flames (7 of Diamonds)

 

So, what gives? Do you read them as playing cards? Lenormand cards? Oracle cards? Do you have to choose one system or another? Can you blend them together and, if so, how? “Everybody” knows playing cards are read differently from Lenormand cards. And Oracle cards seem to have their own sets of rules, depending on the deck.

Since there isn’t much of anything online (that I’ve been able to find) about how to read / work with this deck, I can only share with you my own experiences and encourage you to “take what works and leave the rest behind” as you develop your own personal relationship with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards.

Reading with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Part 1

The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards is a strange little deck. It’s been described elsewhere as “deviant.” “Quirky” might be another accurate description. I purchased this deck back in 2009, threw a handful of spreads with it and promptly relegated it to some storage container or another.

Curiously, earlier this week, out of nowhere, an image of this deck’s garish orange box popped into my mind. I brushed it off and went about my business. As the day progressed, however, I kept seeing images of the cards — or least what I could remember of them — and that stick-out-like-a-sore-thumb orange box. The cards seemed to be begging me to locate them and throw a spread or two. Finally, tired of being nagged, I started looking for them.

Do I really need to tell you how much time I spent annoying myself half to death searching all the usual places I stash cards before I finally found them, buried beneath and behind various other decks on a shelf I normally don’t pay much attention to?

Let’s just say it was more than a minute…

After finding them and then browsing through and tossing aside the lamest excuse for a LWB (Little White Book) that I’ve ever seen, I decided to ease back into a relationship with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards by asking a simple question: “Can I Substitute You for Regular Playing Cards?” My underlying and unspoken question was “Do You Want to Work with Me?”

“Can I Substitute You for Regular Playing Cards? (Do You Want to Work with Me?)”

Just from looking at the pictures, even a beginning card reader can see it looks like the start of a happy and fruitful relationship. 🙂

The spread consists of three cards, color sequence RED-BLACK-RED and a RED base card. The preponderance of RED cards augers a “yes” answer to the question(s). To summarize, I can expect that working with the cards will be satisfying and rewarding (Heart – Club – Heart – Diamond).

Specifically, the cards read, “YES, you can read us as playing cards and YES, we will work with you (Hand in Hand). The relationship between us will grow and flourish (Tree) and be successful (House).” The base card, Dog, shows the cards will be friendly and supportive, as well as rewarding (Diamond).

I was delighted at the reading and wanted to use the cards again as soon as possible. I didn’t have to wait long. Male X’s wife gave me an update on his ongoing employment saga and I decided to cast an Overview Spread using the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards to gain insight into this recent development.

I’ll tell you how that went in Part 2.

To be continued…
