What Happened to Tre? – A Missing Person Reading


On December 5, the body of Tre Rouse was discovered inside his vehicle submerged in the Merrimack River in Hooksett, NH. This was something he had apparently been threatening to do before his November 15 disappearance. This reading obviously goes into the “failure” column as far as predictive accuracy.


Original Post:

On November 15, 24-year-old Tre Rouse left the Pembroke, NH area and has since been reported missing.


I performed my “World of Hurt” missing-person spread for this case and supplemented it with a two-card “snapshot” intended to show his present state of well-being. I used the Conver Ben-Dov Tarot de Marseille without reversals for the layout. In my method, the relevant court cards for people under 25 are the Valets (Knaves/Pages), and the first one to appear was the Valet d’Epee (Page of Swords) on the second pass,  in the top-most “Intentional Absence” position with the Cavalier de Baton (Knight of Wands) directly beneath it. (Note that I removed the other four unused court cards in the Significator’s column for clarity.)

The location of the Significator indicates that Tre left by his own choice, and that he may have been escaping something, possibly a threat from the Cavalier de Baton. He could be in hiding. The 6 of Batons (Wands) in the “Will he be found alive?” position is one of the “yes-leaning” cards, so chances are better than 50-50 that he will turn up safe; the upbeat nature of this card could mean that he is still “on the move.” The 6 of Cups in the “If yes, when?” position shows six units of time, most likely within the “six days to six weeks” time-frame (although Cups are generally considered to mean “months,” a shorter delay seems reasonable here). The “quintessence” card for this series is the Hierophant, implying some type of  “safe haven,” or perhaps showing that he is “under protection” in some way. (In modern esoteric terms, this card has an association with physical security.)

I drew two more cards, a pip and a trump, from the same deck to describe the most likely state of his well-being as of November 21. These cards offer a “microscopic” view and a “macroscopic” view in accordance with the attached table. The 2 of Deniers (Coins/Pentacles) indicates that he may be at some risk of physical instability, possibly due to his bipolar condition, but the Sun following it reveals that he should resurface unharmed. (Interestingly, when I was doing the “pip card” pull for this step, the Sun card was out-of-place in the deck and turned up erroneously in the “microscopic” position; when I restored it to the “trump card” set and shuffled thoroughly, it appeared again randomly in the “macroscopic” position. As Yoav Ben-Dov, the creator of this deck, used to say: “Everything is a sign.”)

I will update this post when more is known.
