Forensic Astrology & Cartomancy: Missing Child Jesse Wilson

Today marks four weeks since a Buckeye AZ mother/ foster mother called the non-emergency line of the Buckeye Police Department in the early morning hours to report that her 10 year old son was missing. As I publish this post, the child, Jesse Wilson, has not returned home and has not been located or recovered.

Once again it appears we have a scenario where a missing child “disappears into nowhere.” Of course we all know that missing persons, whether children or adults, do not simply “disappear into nowhere.”

Below I will walk you through the forensic horary astrology charts I examined in this case, as well as two Lenormand card readings on the subject. Because this is not an astrology blog, I will not overly concentrate on the charts. However, I am going to point out specific pertinent indicators of what I think likely happened and summarize my thoughts in plain English. If you are not astrologically oriented, feel free to skip over the jargon and only read what I highlight in red. Following the astrological findings I will show you Lenormand card spreads which give additional information that may be of interest.

Before I start, please keep in mind I am not a psychic. What I do is attempt to “translate” Star Language (astrology) from a forensic astrological perspective to the best of my abilities. Neither astrology nor card reading are valued by law enforcement and certainly have no standing in a court of law. Regardless, the open-minded among you may appreciate the insights obtained through these unconventional methodologies.

The Facts

At 1:41 a.m. Monday, July 18, 2016, a mother/ foster mother called the non-emergency line of the Buckeye, AZ Police Department to report that her 10 year old son, Jesse Wilson, was missing. News reports later stated she allegedly had last seen her son Sunday evening, July 17, 2016, around 9:30 p.m. in his bedroom, but that information was not contained in the call to police.

The mother’s very first words to the police non-emergency number were not along the lines of “Help, my son is missing,” but rather a cool, calm and collected description of “what happened” and that he’d “done it before”:

Police: Buckeye Police. How can I help you?

Mother/ Foster Mother: Yes. Um, my son has either climbed out the window, which he’s done before, or he has … um, he has gone out the back door, um, the back gate.

During this approximately four minute call, the mother/ foster mother mentions Jesse had “done this before” (run away) five times.

About half-way into the call after (accidentally) giving police her old address, she said “I’m so sorry. I’m so delirious. I’m sorry. … Um, I’m sorry. I gave you my old address. I’m sorry.”

The brain attempts to make excuses for an overwrought parent but here’s what sticks:


  • The mother’s voice is calm, controlled, monotone (dare I suggest “medicated”?) throughout the call with the exception of the “so sorry” outburst after which she immediately resumes her composure
  • The mother does not call 9-1-1 for a missing child but rather, the non-emergency number (what’s with that?)
  • The mother repeats he’s “done it before” (run away) five times
  • The mother is “so sorry, … so delirious, … sorry, … sorry” (three sorries and one delirious)
  • The mother “accidentally” gives police her old address (a clue, perhaps?)
  • The mother sends Jesse’s beloved dog away shortly after he disappears, allegedly because she couldn’t stand being reminded of her “sweet boy”
  • CPS removed the remaining two foster/adopted children from the mother’s home shortly after Jesse’s disappearance

….Just sayin’…..


The Astrology

If your first thought upon seeing this chart is “too much information,” fear not. I have highlighted the take-aways in red in my commentary below the chart.

Jesse Wilson Reported Missing Astrology chart http://livingwithcards.com
Jesse Wilson Reported Missing Astrology chart


Note: No matter how “bad” a missing person chart looks (and this one is “bad”), the missing person cannot be assumed to be in danger or dead unless afflictions to the person’s natal and/or secondary progressed charts are severe. Unfortunately, in this case, there are too many afflictions to Jesse Wilson’s natal and secondary progressed charts for me to be optimistic.


To start out with, there are so many “testimonies” surrounding the ASCENDANT (00:28 Gemini) that I cannot in good conscience ignore them.

  • DEJANIRA – victimhood
  • ADMETOS – endings, removals, detachment
  • ALCYONE – “something to cry about”
  • CIRCE, AMOR square PALLAS, NESSUS and trine SADO – conditions put on love, necessity of pleasing someone to gain acceptance, ill treatment/ abuse

This grouping tells me something very bad/ something to cry about (ALCYONE) has occurred. There was an ending, removal or detachment (ADMETOS). Someone was a victim/ was victimized (DEJANIRA). Someone was only loved if he fulfilled expectations/ conditions, otherwise he was treated sadistically/ abused (CIRCE, AMOR, PALLAS, NESSUS, SADO).

Notice that Asteroid LIE, located in the 1st House is square Asteroid JESSIE (ironically located in the 5th House of Children). This strongly suggests to me that Mama is spinning a tale about the circumstances surrounding Jesse’s disappearance. ARACHNE, the spider’s web (lies, intrigue) symbolizing entrapment and complications, is in the 4th House (the home) trine the MOON, suggesting Jesse may have been or felt trapped or cornered by Mama.

I could not find an asteroid that matched Mama’s name exactly, but the closest match, CRYSTALPOOLE at 10:58 Sagittarius, is conjunct SATURN and inconjunct the Arabic Part of Death. Read the sentence: Mama (CRYSTALPOOLE) + “discipline” (SATURN) gone awry (inconjunct) = death (Part of Death).

Remember that big glob of asteroids, etc., conjunct the ASCENDANT I pointed out in the bullet list above? That entire grouping is dead square Jesse Wilson’s Secondary Progressed MOON (00:49 Pisces based on his symbolic SUN on ASCENDANT relocated natal chart). This is a strong death indicator, and most unfortunately, only one of many… along with several other indicators of mother-involvement.

Major Astrological Indicators of Danger and/or Death
  • SUN in critical degree (26 cardinal) in the 3rd House of Siblings – a crisis situation – possibly witnessed in full or in part by siblings and/or siblings could provide valuable information regarding what happened and/or dynamics of relationship between Jesse and Mama
  • MOON in 8th House of Death of the Reported Missing Chart applying conjunct PLUTO (a death indicator) and conjunct JESSE WILSON’s natal SUN/MOON midpoint – extremely strong death testimony
  • Lord 8 of Death JUPITER in the 5th House of Children trine the Arabic Part of Death in the turned 8th House of Death of the 5th House Child (radix 12th House) – indicative of a child’s probable death, should other “testimonies” support such a conclusion
  • the astrological sign Taurus is intercepted in the turned 8th House of Death of the 5th House Child (radix 12th House), making VENUS one of the house rulers. In this chart we see that MERCURY, symbolizing JESSE as Lord 5 the Child has just separated from VENUS, co-ruler of the turned 8th House of Death. This suggests that Jesse may have already been dead when Mama made her phone call
  • Jesse’s natal SUN 25:49 Pisces is exactly conjunct the Reported Missing CHIRON RXextremely strong indicator of harm (at best) and/or death (at worst)… (Chiron is a death indicator in Missing Person charts) close opposite Emerson’s Point of Death making this entire configuration an extremely strong testimony for death
  • Jesse’s Secondary Progressed SUN 06:05 Aries exactly square the Reported Missing MOON 06:57 Capricorn in the 8th House of Death – extremely strong indicator of death
  • Jesse’s natal Part of Death (18:11 Aries based on the symbolic SUN on ASCENDANT relocated natal chart) is close conjunct the turned 8th House of Death of the 5th House Child (radix 12th House) cusp – extremely strong significator of death
  • The Arabic Part of Fatality 14:38 Libra in the Reported Missing Chart is conjunct Jesse’s natal MOON  (13:12 Libra, based on the symbolic SUN on ASCENDANT relocated natal chart**) — extremely strong indicator of death [Note: 13 Libra is a critical degree, i.e. “crisis” degree.]


**Because I only have Jesse’s date of birth and not his time and place of birth, I am forced to construct a symbolic natal chart which places his SUN on the ASCENDANT at the coordinates of the last seen/ reported missing location. In reality, Jesse’s natal MOON could be anywhere from 09-21 degrees Libra, depending on his actual time and location of birth. Regardless, I have repeatedly found the “testimonies” contained in symbolic natal charts cannot be ignored despite the fact that the MOON, house cusps and Arabic Parts degrees are “wrong.”


There are other indicators in this chart (along with supporting indicators in other, supplemental, charts I’ve examined) that have led me to my conclusions, but I think I’ve provided enough information for you to see where I’m going (or have gone) with this.

One last thing from the astrological perspective: if Ivy Goldstein-Jacobson‘s method of locating the Missing Person works in this case (and I’ve only had spotty success using her methodology), Jesse may possibly be found approximately 4.8 miles  NNE or conversely, SSW, from his home, possibly in a hot, dry place and/or near a place of entertainment, parks, playgrounds, the front yard, “the parking strip that is decoratively planted to enhance the appearance of the property or street,” forests, reservations, jungles, animal preserves, lairs, dens, deserts, places that are high, rocky, steep or hard to reach, forts and natural sites serving as fortresses (see Ivy Goldstein-Jacobson ‘Simplified Horary Astrology’ link below this post).

Now… let’s get on to the card draws…


The Cartomancy

I cast the first card draw using the Piatnik Lenormand card deck on July 30, 2016, after having close to two full weeks to “absorb” and percolate on the charts’ testimonies. My question to the Lenormand cards was to the point: Jesse Wilson, 10 years old, missing from Buckeye, AZ since 7/17/2016, dead or alive?

Q: Jesse Wilson Dead or Alive?

Forensic Cartomancy Lenormand card reading: Jesse Wilson Dead or Alive? 35 Anchor – 8 Coffin – 14 Fox – 30 Lilies – 7 Snake – 10 Scythe

Here we have an end to a lifestyle (ANCHOR + COFFIN), danger ahead/ trouble ahead/ a woman brings trouble (ANCHOR, SNAKE); an older woman complicates matters (LILIES + SNAKE). Lies, something is wrong (FOX). Dead, death (COFFIN + LILIES). Wrongful death (COFFIN + FOX + LILIES). Accidental death (SCYTHE).

I added up the numerical values of the cards: 35 + 8 + 14 + 30 + 7 + 10 = 104 = 1 + 0 + 4 = 5 = 5 TREE. I then searched out 5 TREE in the remaining deck and selected it along with a few cards before and after. The cards painted a grim picture:

The new information (RIDER) was released by the media on August 12, 2016, thirteen days after this card draw:

Several neighbors tell ABC15 Jesse Wilson and his siblings were locked out of the house sometimes after school. Jesse would knock on the neighbors’ doors asking for a snack and drinks.

According to this news report, the unsupervised lock-outs happened several times while the family was living in Avondale AZ, before moving to Buckeye. One time, neighbors found the children in the garage, sweating and hungry. When confronted as to why the children were locked out of the house in the sweltering Arizona heat, Mama claimed that she was having trouble securing child care while she worked. [See this link for the news story.]

This combination shows deteriorated, unhealthy, destructive, disturbing and unstable family relations and suggests possible unstable mental health and/or drug/alcohol issues as factors in Jesse’s disappearance.


I couldn’t let it alone. The next day (July 31, 2016) I asked another question, this time using Pixie’s Astounding Lenormand card deck:

Q: What Else Should We Consider (concerning Jesse Wilson)?

Forensic Cartomancy Lenormand card reading on missing child Jesse Wilson, Buckeye AZ: 26 Book - 10 Scythe - 7 Snake - 11 Whip - 27 Letter - 36 Cross http://livingwithcards.com
Forensic Cartomancy Lenormand card reading on missing child Jesse Wilson, Buckeye AZ: 26 Book – 10 Scythe – 7 Snake – 11 Whip – 27 Letter – 36 Cross

Pixie’s Astounding Lenormand

The combination suggests an unknown or secret or hidden accident (BOOK + SCYTHE) caused by abuse (WHIP) resulting in complications leading to death (SNAKE + CROSS).

BOOK + SCYTHE could be a medical examiner according to Sylvie Steinbach. LETTER could be his or her report. Assuming authorities actually find/recover Jesse Wilson, perhaps this information will be made public at some future point.

I drew the above cards two weeks after Jesse’s disappearance. Now, as I publish this post, four weeks have already passed. Should Jesse be recovered, I doubt the M.E. will have much to work with, given Arizona’s brutal heat. Because of this, the medical examiner’s report regarding cause of death may turn out to be “unknown causes.”


Jesse Wilson, age 10, allegedly disappeared from his Buckeye, AZ bedroom sometime between 9:30 p.m. Sunday, July 17, 2016 and 1:41 a.m. Monday, July 18, 2016 according to his mother/ foster mother who reported him missing.

The mother/ foster mother made every effort to cast him as a runaway.

The mother gave his beloved dog away within days of his disappearance.

The remaining siblings (including a twin) were removed from the home by Child Protective Services.

The Buckeye Police are still searching for Jesse and have not ruled out foul play.

No one has been charged.


The forensic horary astrology chart featured above, along with  supplemental charts I have not shown in this post, strongly suggest that Jesse Wilson is no longer with us. Abuse markers are prevalent.

The Lenormand card readings concur, and bring further attention to probable abuse and possible drug or alcohol issues factoring in to whatever really occurred in the hours leading up to the call to police.

Both methodologies implicate the mother/ foster mother in some way, shape or form, something I’m sure the Buckeye Police and the F.B.I. have had on their radar screen since Day 1.

You may have gathered from the length of this post that the circumstances surrounding Jesse Wilson’s mysterious disappearance have disturbed me greatly, and you’d be correct in your assumption. I’ve been examining missing persons cases from a forensic astrological perspective for some 20 years now and it never gets any easier.

Divination, the Law of Attraction and Psychic Development

At its core level, divination is energy reading. It doesn’t matter whether you use Tarot cards, Lenormand cards, sticks, stones or bones. What you are doing is accessing the energies or vibrations surrounding a particular person or situation and interpreting them as you would a language. For all intents and purposes, you are using a tool (e.g., cards, runes, dice, charms, tea leaves, etc.) to “read vibes.”

Anyone can become proficient to some degree or another in divination methods. This is because all humans possess “psychic” or “intuitive” abilities to some degree or another. It is the belief that one is not psychic or intuitive that makes reading cards or engaging in any other type of divination seem difficult if not downright impossible. This occurs because of the Law of Attraction, not because the would-be diviner doesn’t have the skills or talent to master the task. People who believe it is possible to learn how to read tarot cards, Lenormand cards, sticks, stones or bones will learn how to read them. Those who don’t, won’t.

The Law of Attraction

In simplest terms, the Law of Attraction is based on the premise that like attracts like. We are talking about energies again. If your normal frame of mind, for example, is critical and pessimistic, you will tend to attract critical and pessimistic people and circumstances into your life. These people and circumstances that appear to be outside yourself will reinforce your critical and pessimistic beliefs and viewpoints. If you don’t consciously work at changing your core beliefs and attitudes, you may live your entire life from a critical and pessimistic perspective.

Another example: if you have little faith in or love for yourself, you will tend to attract people and circumstances that reflect that lack of faith and/or love. Should you actually encounter more positive people and situations, you will tend to discount them or even push them away. The Bible command “love thy neighbor as thyself” is literal. It is missing the word “you.” YOU love your neighbor as much or as little as you love yourself.


I’m not saying the above mindsets are necessarily bad. I’m just saying that they will produce — and continue to produce — similar people and circumstances in a person’s life until and unless the person does something to change the energies. This is because circumstances mirror inner consciousness, not the other way around. “Positive” people tend to attract positive experiences into their lives. “Negative” people tend to attract people and circumstances of a negative nature.

The problem is that most behaviors and thought patterns are to a large degree unconscious. People don’t think about what they are thinking about and they don’t easily see the links between thoughts and things, the unmanifest and the manifest.

This is exactly why Tarot and other divination methods are so useful:

Divination Methods Make the Invisible Visible.

The invisible realm is energy. It cannot be literally seen, only accessed. Two things are necessary for accessing this realm with card systems: a vehicle (e.g. tarot cards) and one’s own intuition. Cards which are seemingly randomly drawn provide pictures that trigger one’s imagination and intuition, “magically” resulting in insights not easily gained by the “usual” methods.

Not to be presumptuous, but I am assuming you would prefer to “see where you are going,” along with having more of what you want in your life and less of what you don’t want. 🙂


Changing the energies that surround you is under your control


To that end, I’d like to refer you back to two previous posts where I outlined my approach to reading the tarot cards from a Law of Attraction perspective.

Law of Attraction Tarot Card Spread http://livingwithcards.com
Law of Attraction Tarot Card Spread – Living with Cards

Tarot and the Law of Attraction Part 1

Tarot and the Law of Attraction Part 2

I designed the Law of Attraction tarot card spread to cast a spotlight on core beliefs and how they may be interfering with goals and desires. I’ve personally found this spread provides valuable insight and helps me quickly pinpoint where I might have gotten off track. I hope you’ll get some benefit from it as well.

Working with tarot cards and divination systems is an excellent approach to self-growth, self-improvement and self-empowerment. As you work with the cards on a regular basis, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll begin recognizing and identifying how the Law of Attraction is operating in your own life while strengthening and improving your natural psychic abilities at the same time.

That’s a win-win, in my opinion.

You Don’t Have to be Psychic to Read Cards

You don’t have to be psychic to learn how to read cards. All it takes is intention, some intuition, and a good dollop of common sense.

If you learned how to read English — which I assume you did if you’re reading this post — you can learn how to read cards. This is because cards, like English (or French or German or any other language), speak in languages that you can learn to read.

Each card system (tarot, Lenormand, playing cards, etc.) has its own language. Just like any language, there may be similarities — and there are sure to be differences.

For example, XVI-The Tower in the tarot does not have the same meaning as 19 Tower in the Lenormand. The former has the connotation of a shock or disruption of some sort, perhaps a crisis point. The latter has many meanings including legal matters, bureaucracy, isolation, ego, and official buildings among other things, and absolutely no connotations of shock, disruption or crisis.


What you need if you want to read cards:

1. Intention

I-The Magician - Hanson-Roberts Tarot Deck
I-The Magician – Hanson-Roberts Tarot Deck


You have to want to read cards, otherwise, why would you bother? It is not a huge investment of money to pick up a tarot deck at a local bookstore or order one online. Lenormand cards are not particularly pricey and can also be ordered online. A pack of playing cards costs less than $5.00 at big box stores and drugstores. If you don’t already own a deck of tarot, Lenormand or playing cards, decide which card system you want to start with and purchase one deck. If you’re already familiar and comfortable with one or more card systems, consider trying your hand at another.

Here are some deck suggestions to get you started:

Tarot decks:

  • Hanson-Roberts Tarot Deck
  • Robin Wood Tarot Deck
  • Universal Waite Tarot Deck
  • Morgan-Greer Tarot Deck
  • Crowley Thoth Tarot Deck

Lenormand decks:

  • Piatnik Lenormand Jeu de destin No. 194115
  • Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand
  • Mystical Lenormand


2. Intuition

II-The High Priestess - Hanson-Roberts Tarot Deck
II-The High Priestess – Hanson-Roberts Tarot Deck


Everyone has intuitive capabilities. While some people may be more intuitive than others, every person has the ability to “intuit” to some degree — and the capacity to build their intuitive muscle. The more you learn about how your own particular intuitive abilities work, the better you will be able to work with them. Card reading is a great way to uncover and strengthen your intuitive abilities. When you look at a tarot card, you may find certain symbols in the picture capture your attention. You might ask yourself, “why has that symbol captured my attention?” One thought may lead to another and before you know it, you could be stringing together a meaning and/or a thought might occur to you that summarizes the message the cards seem to be giving you. This is intuition in play. You will develop and/or strengthen it by reading cards on a regular basis.


3. Common Sense

It helps to have your head set squarely on your shoulders. It doesn’t make any sense to me to get upset, worried or scared outta your mind by a card reading. Come on, people, use your heads. They’re just cards. Cards are rectangular pieces of cardboard with pictures on them. The power is not in the cards. You own the power.
