More On Phoenix Coldon

I've received a few more questions, recently, about Phoenix Coldon, a young woman who went missing in St. Louis, Missouri, in 2011; and for whom I did a reading in 2013. She is still missing, and there are still no suspects identified in her case. Specifically, I was asked to hone in on the perpetrator a bit more, and to see if there is a better way to find her than the conventional means employed by local law enforcement, to date. I decided to try a horoscope spread for this, as it can give the cards more latitude to tell their own story, giving me characters and places I would not know to ask about from the information I have been given.

The first house card is the nine of cups, which is a card of home and the comforts of home. It's presence in the first house suggests that this whole situation started where Phoenix lived, with someone she least well enough to allow him (and it was a male) to get close enough for a conversation. The second house, of money and monetary transactions, gives us the ace of pentacles, reversed. Here we see money obtained by someone, but not in an ethical way. In the third house, of short journeys, business, and commerce, we have the King of Swords, reversed. This is interesting; court cards from the suit of swords are often law enforcement, or work in some capacity with law enforcement. This king is reversed, which makes him adversarial to Phoenix in some way. At this point, I am wondering if Phoenix had been mistaken for someone else, or if a police officer thought she had information about a crime or another person that she really didn't have.

In the fourth house, we get another "home" reference; the fourth house is the house of "home", and we have the four of wands, which is a card of harvest, celebration, and happiness. It also speaks to property, which plays a role here. The four of wands also represents a "haven", and it was necessary to get Phoenix away from her haven. The next card, in the fifth house, of love affairs, pleasure, and creativity, is the Emperor, reversed. This is an immature man who isn't honest, and this card also often refers to fraud. The fraud and dishonesty here was committed by a male in his late twenties, not by Phoenix. This is followed by the ten of cups, reversed, in the sixth house, of work relationships and mundane, everyday things. When the ten of cups falls reversed in a reading we often find betrayal and loss of friendship, and finding it in the sixth house points to a matter that may have originated where Phoenix worked or attended school.....some place she frequented daily.

The seventh house, of partnerships, gives us the Knight of Pentacles. This is a young man, in his early twenties, who is not involved in Phoenix's disappearance, but is very kindly disposed toward her. Moving into the eight house, of joint finances and of matters that pertain to the practical side of partnerships, we have the Page of Wands. Often, pages are young people, students, or children, but this time, I think the Page of Wands is a message or a report. As it follows the Knight of Pentacles, it gives good testimony about him. It would almost appear that the wrong person had been suspected in Phoenix's disappearance, at one time, and has been exonerated, or is no longer a suspect.

In the ninth house, of long journeys, the law, and higher education, we have the two of swords, reminding us that Phoenix did not end up far away, and warning us that the investigation is at a standstill. This card is at an opposition with the King of Swords in the third house, and shows that the biggest problem in finding Phoenix has to do with the King of Swords. The Wheel of Fortune is in the tenth house, and this has to do with relationships with bosses and superiors; often in the workplace. Once again, we have a reference to either work or school. The eleventh house, of friends and social life, gives us the Page of Cups, reversed. This tells me that a false lead, faulty tip, or an outright lie came, at one time or another, from someone Phoenix knew casually. The last card is the ace of wands, reversed, in the twelfth house, of secrets, restrictions, and secret enemies. This shows that early on, this investigation had a false start, and has never recovered.

A question that was asked had to do with corrupt law enforcement, and the King of Swords reversed would certainly suggest this. It is also troubling to note that directly opposite him, in the ninth house, is the two of swords. This makes the stalemate suggested by the two of swords almost look deliberate. The swords also continue to point us east, but not very far to the east. In conclusion, it looks very much as if Phoenix had either witnessed a crime, or had met an unsavory new friend, and had been questioned by someone else about the crime, or the other person's whereabouts. She appears to have been a bystander, here; but the King of Swords did not think she was a bystander. Finding her rests with the reversed King of Swords, and the investigation will have to begin all over again, starting with all of Phoenix's social media and cell phone communications. I always wish I had better news in this type of reading, and I pray Phoenix is found soon.

Phoenix Coldon

Phoenix Coldon, twenty-three, disappeared in St. Louis, Missouri, in December of 2011. Disappointingly, there has not been a lot of media coverage for her, so I will do a reading.
Immediately, I see a conflict of sorts between an older man with a fatherly interest in Phoenix and a younger, less experienced, more romantic man. The reading gave me the Knight of Cups crossed by the Emperor as a start. These have both played roles in Phoenix's life; and I believe the Emperor is her father. There is a background of childish or unrealistic expectations here, meeting stern reality, shown by the six of cups founding this matter. This father also has always seen more possibilities for his daughter, and wanted better for her. This is what his perspective has always been.
The four of pentacles appears as a recently passed event. This card, reversed, represents material setbacks. It also tells us that key information was given "a day late and a dollar short". The event that this information would describe is represented by the Knight of Swords. This knight can either be a person, message, or an event, and in this position, it appears to be an event. Sadly, the Knight of Swords is all about force and destruction. But how would such elements have come into Phoenix's life? Something that was becoming important to Phoenix at the time she disappeared is the ace of wands, which is a new adventure or enterprise. She either had an opportunity, or had been offered an opportunity, that somehow threatened a young man in her surroundings. The description, so far in the reading, is of a young man who felt that her emotional and material investments should be in him, or in things that were close to that with which he is familiar.
The Page of Pentacles appears in the place of fears. This is a dark haired, dark eyed girl or boy, and often a scholarship. In this position, I think it could be both. This represents Phoenix. Next, we have the nine of swords, reversed. This is a card of imprisonment, coming up in the place of environment, and refers to the place she was hidden, and the feelings of the perpetrator. The card would point ever so slightly to the east, as it is reversed, and perhaps speak of places that are desolate, abandoned, and not often frequented. The Queen of Pentacles appears in the place of hopes, and I think this is a woman connected to Phoenix who is hoping to find her. The sad final outcome here, is Justice, reversed. Not only does this illustrate the ineffective manner in which the media has publicized this case, and the fact that Pjhoenix has not been found, it also tells us that what has happened here was not the natural way of Phoenix's path, and that she was actually meant to take advantage of the opportunities life offered her.
