Forensic Cartomancy: Lenormand Cards Discuss Missing Child Diana Alvarez

Here’s a question for you. If you pulled some Lenormand cards to find out whether a missing child was dead or alive and got DOG + BOOK + SCYTHE + CHILD + GARDEN + BIRDS, would you say that child was dead or alive?

I say ‘dead’ and will explain why and how I came to that conclusion further down in this post. But first, I’d like to discuss factors leading up to that particularly grim determination.

 

 

Background

According to news and media reports, Diana Alvarez, a nine year old Fort Myers, Florida child, was discovered missing from her home around 7:00 am on Sunday, May 29, 2016. Over the next several days it became sickeningly clear that a 28 year old male with the initials JG* likely was responsible for the child’s disappearance.

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

*JG had been a tenant at the family’s home, living there and paying rent. When family members noticed that JG appeared to be inappropriately interested in Diana and Diana appeared to be smitten by his attention, they insisted JG move out. This occurred in early May, shortly before the little girl disappeared.

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

As I write this post, the suspect JG is in custody, charged with possession of child pornography. He has not claimed responsibility for the disappearance of Diana Alvarez and has since “lawyered up.” The child is still missing.

The Astrology

I have mentioned before, in this post and this one, that I primarily use forensic horary astrology techniques to discover what has happened in missing persons cases.

Because this is a cartomancy blog and not an astrology blog, I will not go into the blow-by-blow details that I was able to pull from careful analysis of the pertinent charts, other than to say there were numerous indications of kidnap, rape and murder, along with disturbing indications of extreme violence. If you are astrologically oriented, you can get the general idea from my scribbled notes on the “Discovered Missing” chart below.

Sickening, at best.

Based on past experience, it occurred to me that perhaps the Lenormand cards could shed more light on the matter. While the astrology was certainly clear enough, I’ve found the cards can often add another layer that is helpful to understanding the dynamics surrounding these tragic cases.

First I pulled a Lenormand Square of 9 to get the general “lay of the land,” so to speak.

Lenormand Square of 9: Circumstances Surrounding Diana Alvarez Disappearance

Lenormand Square of 9: 3 Ship - 26 Book - 9 Bouquet - 18 Dog - 22 Crossroads - 7 Snake - 13 Child - 24 Heart - 15 Bear http://livingwithcards.com
Lenormand Square of 9: 3 Ship – 26 Book – 9 Bouquet – 18 Dog – 22 Crossroads – 7 Snake – 13 Child – 24 Heart – 15 Bear

Mlle Lenormand Cartomancy Deck of 36 Cards

 

Note: None of these cards were preselected.

Diana is 13 Child, JG is 18 Dog. We can easily see they went on a road trip (SHIP + ROADS) that ended badly (SHIP + ROADS + SNAKE). Diana has a crush on JG (DOG + HEART), but JG has told her they have to keep it a secret (BOOK + HEART) from Mama and/or Papa (BEAR). JG gives Diana gifts (BOUQUET) or perhaps promises (HEART) to give them. Diana trusts JG (DOG).

22 Crossroads with 3 Ship + 26 Book suggests a “secret journey.” She should expect something wonderful and pleasant (BOUQUET). Perhaps the roads they traveled were wind-y,  or full of curves, or a round-about route (ROADS + SNAKE). Perhaps a bear or two (BEAR) had been spotted there. Maybe he told her they were going to stop to see the bears (BEAR) on their way to the “big surprise” (BOUQUET) he had for her.

She was so incredibly trusting (CHILD + HEART). Most nine year olds are.

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

 

While the Lenormand Square of 9 was descriptive enough, it did not seem to address the critical question. So, taking a breath, I thoroughly re-mixed the cards and asked:

Q: Diana Alvarez Dead or Alive?

Lenormand Line of 5 with Base Card: 18 Dog - 26 Book - 10 Scythe - 13 Child - 20 Garden - 12 Birds http://livingwithcards.com
Lenormand Line of 5 with Base Card: 18 Dog – 26 Book – 10 Scythe – 13 Child – 20 Garden – 12 Birds

Mlle Lenormand Cartomancy Deck of 36 Cards

Following my normal procedure, I selected the base card (bottom card of the shuffled deck), placing it directly below the central (hinge) card of the Lenormand Line of 5. I have repeatedly found this extra card adds value to the reading, either by modifying one or more of the three cards above it, supplying additional information or clarification, and/or by pointing out a factor that should be considered.

DOG, BOOK and CHILD once again appeared in this second card draw. The repetition of cards in spite of vigorous shuffling and re-mixing in between draws did not go unnoticed. JG is the DOG (trusted friend, loved one, typically male); Diana is the CHILD and the BOOK is the secret between them.

The Line of 5 is quite straightforward. It suggests that the secret friend (DOG + BOOK) “cut” her down/ committed a violent act against her (SCYTHE + CHILD), then buried or placed her in a lushly vegetated area such as a park or nature preserve (GARDEN).

As a modifier to SCYTHE, BIRDS (associated with the throat and/or vocal chords) suggests “air.” Combining the base card with the hinge cardSCYTHE can be a “cut” or an “interruption” and BIRDS breathing and/or the breathing process (air). Did JG “cut” (SCYTHE) her throat (BIRDS)? Did he “interrupt” or “cut off” (SCYTHE) her airways (BIRDS)?  …. In other words, did he strangle or suffocate her so she wouldn’t (couldn’t) “talk” (SCYTHE + BIRDS)?

Conclusions

The forensic horary astrology charts suggest that Diana Alvarez is no longer with us. The Lenormand cards appear to agree. Both approaches suggest strangulation/ asphyxiation (with possible testimonies for slashing of the throat) as cause of death.

The Lenormand cards suggest Diana may be found in a garden, park, nature preserve or other area where there is lush vegetation (GARDEN). With BIRDS as the base card in the Line of 5, perhaps the authorities will have some success getting the perp to “talk.”

We can only hope…

Note regarding my process: I will only examine a Missing Persons case when I have a reasonable understanding of the circumstances surrounding the disappearance, a reliable timeline including the date, time and place the person was either discovered missing and/or reported missing to police, and the victim’s birth data. The birth data of the perpetrator/ prime suspect is helpful as well. I prefer to work with current cases.

Unlike psychics (no disrespect intended), I do not base my findings on dreams or visions, nor do I pull information out of the ethers (or my butt, depending on your level of skepticism). Rather, I read the ‘star language‘ contained in the forensic astrology charts that I examine and interpret it to the best of my ability.

The first step (after familiarizing myself with a case) is always the casting and examination of the relevant astrology chart(s), which are carefully compared to the victim’s natal chart before drawing any conclusions. Once that’s done, I may or may not throw a card spread or two to gain additional information, as I did here. Yes, intuition is involved. So is common sense. Everybody has both of these faculties to some degree or another.

 


Reading with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Part 6

Back in Part 2 of this series, I dismissed the LWB (Little White Book) that accompanies the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards out of hand, categorizing it as “less than worthless.” I made this value judgment because, other than providing two layouts (with an example reading for only one of them), the LWB gave no clues on how to read the deck. A comment made by a Living With Cards visitor prompted me to take a second look.

If you own this deck, you’ve certainly noticed that the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards LWB consists of a scrap of paper approximately nine inches wide by 3-1/2 inches high folded into eight panels of information. Because of its tiny size, the information contained within this “book” is beyond brief. Panel 1 is the Introduction. Panels 2 and 3 contain instructions for “The Short Reading” (no reading example is given), while Panels 4-7 address “The Long Reading” (includes a brief reading example using the “fortunes” written on the cards only). The last panel is simply a title page.

The layouts themselves, as described in the LWB, seem to be a blending of traditional cartomancy layouts and Lenormand tableaus. “The Short Reading” employs 17 cards while “The Long Reading” uses 51 cards.

Being a proponent of “less is more,” further down in this post I’ll show you a recent spread I cast using the Gypsy Witch Short Reading layout, along with my “tweaks” to the Gypsy Witch instructions, as well as my commentary. But first, take a look at the template itself:

 Gypsy Witch Cards: The Short Reading Layout

 

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Layout for "The Short Reading" http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Layout for “The Short Reading”

 

You can see from the layout graphic, “The Short Reading” basically consists of a Lenormand Square of Nine (in blue) surrounded by eight additional cards (in red).

 

Gypsy Witch Cards: Short Reading Instructions:

 

Note: The instructions outlined in the LWB for both “The Short Reading” and “The Long Reading” include a preliminary card draw to ascertain whether the Querent (person asking the question) will get his or her wish. For the purposes of the following reading example, I chose to ignore that instruction… If you choose, however, to perform the preliminary card draw, be sure to reshuffle the cards before continuing.

Once the cards are shuffled (or reshuffled, if you are using the preliminary draw), the Gypsy Witch Short Reading instructions next say to place either the Lady or the Gentleman as Card 1 within the Square of Nine, place the remaining eight cards around Card 1, then go on to place an additional eight cards around the Square of Nine. The instructions do not specifically state the order in which to place the cards and the layout graphics above and below reflect my own choice of card placement. Additionally, for the purposes of the following reading example, I also chose to let the deck pick the first card, come what may…

And on that note, let’s proceed with the reading example…

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards “The Short Reading” Example: “What Is Going on with This Lady?”

 

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Short Reading Example: "What Is Going On with this Lady?" http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards “The Short Reading” Example: “What Is Going On with this Lady?”

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

The cards within the Square of Nine will describe what is going on with this Lady, i.e., the internal process. The cards outside the Square of Nine will show the outside influences that have contributed to the Lady’s current situation.

The Square of Nine: Internal Process – The Situation in Which the Lady Now Finds Herself

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Short Reading Square of Nine http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards “The Short Reading” Square of Nine
Row 1: 18 Lady + 24 Hand in Hand + 31 The Roads

This Lady is facing a decision (Roads) regarding a significant relationship (Hand in Hand).

Row 2: 34 The Star + 15 The Letter + 52 The Shepherd

She is seeking guidance (Star) and support (Shepherd) via the written word (Letter). Perhaps she is reading through posts on an internet support group or forum, attempting to see if anyone is experiencing a similar situation. She may be posting some details concerning her situation onto an internet forum or social media account, perhaps hoping to receive feedback, support or guidance from people who may care about her. Alternately, she may be consulting her own Inner Guidance — or astrology chart — and writing down the insights she is receiving. She could be texting loved ones who support her, asking for advice or guidance. The playing card inserts on the cards in Row 2 show that her ability to “think intelligently” about the situation is blocked (Spade + Diamond + Spade).

Row 3: 4 The Key + 28 The Anchor + 32 The Mountains

Whatever is going on in the Lady’s life has knocked her off-center (Anchor + Mountains). She needs to re-establish a sense of security (Key + Anchor) and a sense of inner guidance (Star + Key), but this will not happen immediately (Mountains).

The decision(s) (Roads) she needs to make about the significant relationship (Hand in Hand) will take some time (Anchor, Mountains), and not without a fair amount of soul-searching (Star) and support (Shepherd).

Cards Outside the Square of Nine: External Circumstances that are Affecting or Influencing the Lady’s Situation

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards "The Short Reading" Outside Square http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards “The Short Reading” Outside Square

The cards outside the Square of Nine show the external circumstances that have contributed to, or have caused, the Lady’s current situation.

I am not particularly surprised to see that  it is a man (Gentleman)…

At the least, this man is causing a problem in the Lady’s life (Fox + Gentleman) that is disrupting her harmony (Snake + House). At worst, he has deceived her and has possibly cheated on her (Fox + Snake + Gentleman). He has disrupted what she has believed to be a stable relationship (Snake + House with Ring), and this has all happened fairly recently. It is a new development (Children).

Looking deeper, the man in question may be childish or immature (Gentleman + Children) and/or someone who does not take the relationship with the Lady as seriously as she does (Gentleman + Clover). While it is possible this man was recently offered a new job that will require him moving far away (Clover + Ring + Ship + Fox), it is equally possible that the man is leaving the Lady for another woman (Ring + Ship with Snake). If so, it is possible that either this other woman (Snake) has children and/or that his relationship with her is a brand new development (Children).

Summary

The Lady has come to a crossroads/ decision point (Roads) regarding a significant relationship (Hand in Hand).

A separation/ removal (Spades) is impacting her ability to think intelligently (Diamonds) about her options, and is setting her into a tailspin of depressed and negative thoughts (Spades). She is reaching out for guidance and support, most likely via online communications, texting, etc. (Star + Letter + Shepherd). Some sense of inner security must be regained (Star + Key + Anchor) before any decisions (Roads) can be made. There is no solution at the moment (Mountains as Pivot Card in the Square of Nine).

The cards that are placed outside the Square of Nine suggest that an actual or suspected breach of trust (Fox + Snake + House) by a significant other (Gentleman) is the cause of the problems (Fox). The significant other may be immature (Children) or the type that “lives for today” (Clover). He may be leaving the Lady for a new job elsewhere (Clover + Ring + Ship + Fox). It is equally possible he is leaving her for another woman (Snake) whom he met very recently and/or who may have children (Children).

The Lady needs to step away and sort things out (Roads) before she can move on with her life. Her trust has been breached (Fox, Snake, Anchor) and she is going to need a fair amount of time (Mountains as Pivot Card) and support from people who love her (Star + Shepherd) before she will be in a position to make healthy decisions.

Conclusions

The quality of information I ascertained from the Gypsy Witch Short Reading layout has convinced me that this particular card spread certainly has merit, and I would use it again.

If you own the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards deck, I would encourage you to give “The Short Reading” layout a try. You could also use this layout with any Lenormand deck. I think you will be pleased with the results.

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins

Lenormand Cards Weight Loss Advice: 1 Rider, 19 Tower, 15 Bear, 33 Key, 2 Clover, 12 Birds, 17 Storks, 25 Ring, 34 Fish

Those of us who tend to view life through a magickal lens know we each have, to some degree or another, the power to change our circumstances. This is why I lean towards using the cards (Tarot, Lenormand, Playing cards or Oracle cards) for self-understanding rather than prediction — although there certainly are times when prediction is exactly what is needed!

On that note, last Sunday morning, after yet another night of mindless munching in front of the television set, I pulled out my recently-acquired Celtic Lenormand card deck by Chloe McCracken and Will Worthington and asked (in a pitiful, whiny voice): “WHY am I overeating when I really want to lose weight?!”

I decided to cast a Lenormand Square of 9 where Row 1 would represent the problem, Row 2 would give the solution, and Row 3 would provide advice or further commentary. Additional information gleaned from the way the cards fell would be icing on the cake (Gahhhhhhh!!!)

Here’s what I got:

Q: Why am I Overeating (& What Can I Do about It)?

Celtic Lenormand 1 Rider - 19 Tower - 15 Bear - 33 Key - 2 Clover - 12 Birds - 17 Storks - 25 Ring - 34 Fish

Celtic Lenormand by Chloe McCracken & Will Worthington

Side noteI think I am in love with these cards! They are gorgeous!

Row 1 – The Problem: 1 Rider, 19 Tower, 15 Bear

Celtic Lenormand 1 Rider - 19 Tower - 15 Bear
Celtic Lenormand Weight Loss Advice Row 1: 1 Rider – 19 Tower – 15 Bear

Since 15 BEAR, an appropriate card for weight gain, falls at the end of Row 1, I sensed the first two cards in the row were the factors leading up to the condition of being overweight: namely, lack of movement (RIDER) and isolation (TOWER). As usual, the Lenormand cards pulled no punches. I spend too much time alone (TOWER) and I don’t move around enough (RIDER).

Row 2 – The Solution: 33 Key, 2 Clover, 12 Birds

Celtic Lenormand 33 Key - 2 Clover - 12 Birds
Celtic Lenormand Weight Loss Advice Row 2: 33 Key – 2 Clover – 12 Birds

This row prompted two thoughts:

  1. The solution (KEY) is to look for opportunities (CLOVER) to socialize (BIRDS), particularly in the evenings (I noticed the Moon on the BIRDS card), which is when I do most of my overeating.
  2. My key to dieting success (KEY) would be to focus on salads, leafy green vegetables (CLOVER) and fowl (i.e., chicken & turkey) (BIRDS). Low-carb dieting came to mind. I’d had success with that approach in the past and these cards suggested I’d profit from giving it another try.

Row 3 – Advice, Factors to Consider: 17 Storks, 25 Ring, 34 Fish

Celtic Lenormand 17 Storks - 25 Ring - 34 Fish
Celtic Lenormand Weight Loss Advice Row 3: 17 Storks – 25 Ring – 34 Fish

The first two cards, STORKS and RING, seemed easy enough to interpret: “positive changes come with commitment” or “commitment is needed to bring about positive changes.” 34 FISH at the end of the row threw me off. Eat more fish? That would go along with the low-carb dieting approach indicated in Row 2.

Perhaps FISH was also referencing the concept of “quality over quantity” (FISH is plentiful, expansive). Maybe if I were to focus more on the quality of the food I eat, I’ll have a better shot at reaching my goals.

Additional Info I Pulled from this Reading:

In addition to socializing, BIRDS represent electronic communication, the media and anything that travels over the airwaves including television. I couldn’t help but notice that Row 3 read vertically (BEAR + BIRDS + FISH) suggested “an excess (FISH) of television watching (BIRDS) leading to weight gain (BEAR).”

True dat.

Conversely, FISH + BIRDS + BEAR suggested an expansion (FISH) of social activity (BIRDS) could help resolve the weight issue (BEAR). This also rang true. Maybe I could schedule evening activities once or twice a week to break up the pattern. A Continuing Ed dance class? A Meet-Up group? Those ideas had crossed my mind before, not that I had given them much more than a passing thought.

2 CLOVER, the central card in the Lenormand Square of 9, seemed to be showing me that a wealth of opportunities to get a handle on my problem existed. Move around more (RIDER). Stop isolating yourself (TOWER). Get out more often & socialize (BIRDS). Improve the quality of your eating (STORKS, FISH, BEAR); eat more greens (CLOVER), fowl (BIRDS) and fish (FISH). Commit (RING) to a diet plan that will bring you success/ improvements (KEY, STORKS).

Lenormand Clarification Cards for Weight Loss

The information I pulled out of the reading wasn’t dramatic. Rather, it was quite matter-of-fact. Lenormand cards are known for “telling it like it is” and they rarely beat around the bush. This is an attribute I very much appreciate. That notwithstanding, it didn’t stop me from wondering whether the cards had anything else to say, so I decided to  pull clarification cards using my go-to method, which is to add up the card values in the spread and reduce them to a number equaling 36 or below:

1 + 19 + 15 + 33 + 2 + 12 + 17 + 25 + 34 = 158 = 1 + 5 + 8 = 14 = 14 FOX.

I then located 14 FOX in the remaining deck and selected it along with the card before and the card after.

Celtic Lenormand Clarification Cards 20 Garden - 14 Fox - 6 Clouds
Celtic Lenormand Clarification Cards – Weight Loss Advice: 20 Garden – 14 Fox – 6 Clouds

I immediately noticed two things: all that food laid out so temptingly on the blanket in the GARDEN card — and the fact that the FOX was looking right, toward the CLOUDS. Despite the food feast on the GARDEN card, I also had to consider its standard meanings: socializing, parties, public activities, etc.

Two important messages came to mind:

  1. My fears/ doubts about socializing / reluctance to socialize (GARDEN, CLOUDS) are contributing to the problem (FOX).
  2. “If you’re trying to convince yourself this is not about overeating (GARDEN), you are deceiving yourself (FOX + CLOUDS).”

Once again, in plain language, the Lenormand cards provided a highly informative analysis regarding a matter of concern. With CLOVER as the central card in this Square of 9, I realized I’d need to act on the messages Lenormand so graciously provided, and not just let the “wealth of opportunities” to resolve my issue fade away from lack of attention.

***Note from Mary: The reading prompted me to start the Atkins “40” low carb diet plan which is a “tweak” of the plan outlined in “The New Atkins for a New You,” link below. Wish me luck 🙂

As to whether my social calendar will begin to fill up, that remains to be seen…

Blessings,

***Another Note: The Celtic Lenormand card deck offers three versions for 12 BIRDS: Songbirds, Chickens and Owls. Chickens would have really driven home the message about eating fowl, but if I hadn’t pre-selected Owls as the BIRDS card, I would have missed the “night-time eating” clue provided by the Moon on the Owls card image.

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.

DeOrr Kunz, Jr. missing from Leadore, Idaho July 10, 2015
DeOrr Kunz, Jr. missing from Leadore, Idaho July 10, 2015

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:

Clarification Cards for Lenormand Square of 9 Spread for Missing Child DeOrr Kunz Jr – 22 Crossroads – 13 Child – 10 Scythe

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.

Blessings,
