I guess it seems like an obvious question. Kyron Horman, who went missing on June 4, 2010, was the victim of a crime, so of course, the person who committed the crime will make the best attempt he or she can to escape detection. But it seems as if a lot of planning and skill went into this crime, more than what is usually found with a random "stranger abduction". This has also inspired a few people to wonder if some sort of esoteric means has been used to hide Kyron. It is a question that has actually been posed to me quite a few times over the past year and a half. (!!!........Kyron has been missing waaaaaay too long!)
I did a reading to deal with this question. It begins with the Hierophant, reversed, crossed by the three of swords. When the Hierophant falls reversed, he often represents things that occur outside of the norm, and counterculture lifestyles. Elements of this are somehow present in the current situation; as if someone simply refuses to live life the same way everyone else does. This is blanketed by the three of swords, which is a card of strife and infighting. Somehow, these two dynamics have helped to keep Kyron hidden better then any other type of effort. A failure on someone's part to follow directions and an effort to keep sparks of discord going have worked marvelously so far for the perpetrator.
This is founded by the eight of cups. This card usually appears when someone has gotton what he wanted and changed his mind, but since the question deals with ways that Kyron has been blocked from being found, I think this card is telling us that investigators were deliberately sent in the wrong direction in the past and, as a result, found nothing. In the past, we have the Page of Swords, reversed, and this person is a double dealer and a liar who knows what happened to Kyron and has deliberately used communication, either electronic or in person, to pervert justice. The very best thing that can happen is the eight of swords, reversed, which is a release from being trapped. This is also the second eight that has come up; the message here, as it relates to the first eight that reminded us that Kyron has not been found, is that we should not give up. If the best that can happen is for Kyron to be freed, we should certainly keep looking for him. The next card we get is Justice, reversed. This relates directly to the Page of Swords, and the Page is not about to tell the truth or do anything for Kyron.
In the place of feelings and fears, the Emperor has shown up. He is a fatherly figure, and as he is upside right, I am going to assume he has Kyron's best interests at heart and in mind. The environment of this matter gives us the three of pentacles, reversed. Usaully, this card speaks of mediocrity in the workplace, but here, I think it is telling us that someone has capitalized from searchers and investigators failing to ask the right questions. The Emperor is hoping for a day when the tables are turned, as related to us by the Tower, and the lies that keep Kyron trapped come tumbling down. The last card is the Hermit, who is still vested in helping the Emperor. His advice is to keep looking. Never give up. The Hermit is a little like Diogenes, looking for an honest man. He, or she, as the case may be, will not allow the Emperor to stop looking for Kyron until Kyron has been found.
Nothing in this reading tells me of an esoteric block, but I think natural fear and paranoia has generated one. The presence of a reversed Page of Swords does tell me that deliberate attempts have been made by someone other than the perpetrator to keep Kyron well hidden. This person is not schooled in matters occult, however; and is relying on the ability to sow discord and keep key people from trusting each other, rather than any other "powers".
Note: Sometimes fear, and people who are good at scaring others, can almost feel like a psychic "block". I think there is an element of this at work in Kyron's case.
