Daniel James O'Keefe

Daniel James O'Keefe went missing in Australia on July 15 of 2011. To the left are four pictures of how he looked at different times during his adult life. I was asked to do a reading for him, so I will see what I can find out. Asking "What happened to James and where is he?", I got this: the Hierophant crossed by the six of swords...this speaks of a person or situation involving unorthodox lifestyles and actions, and the six of swords here is merely a long journey. The message is that there was generally an aura of unorthodoxy involved in this young man's life. He was not one to bow to tradition, and occasionally too chances and risks that others would not have taken. Beneath this, we have the two of wands, which is the planning stage of his last undertaking. While he may have been alone when he disappeared, there was somehow room for at least one more person.

Behind this, we get the three of pentacles, reversed. This is a bad card to see if the question is about craftsmanship, and I am surprised to see it here, since the reading is not about how James earned a living. is immediately followed by the eight of pentacles, reversed, another "tradesman" card! That card is the card of the apprentice, and when it falls reversed, it tells of someone who is unskilled or untalented at the lower levels of the chosen field. So this aspect very obviously plays a role. The next card we have is the Sun, reversed. I think that is a message of a voided contract in connection to matters professional in James's life....and perhaps some anger as a result! It can also mean a voided engagement, but the message so far has been about business, rather than romance.

The moon, reversed, falls in the place of fears. This is deception and bad timing. It is followed by the Chariot, reversed, in the place of environment. This has to do with a collapse of a project, often due to polar opposites unable to meet in the middle and work together. That card is reiterated by the two of pentacles, reversed, which tells of inability to manage two situations at once.....but sometimes this card refers to communication, such as cell phones or emails. I think authorities need to take a closer look at each and every phone number that appears in James's cell phone logs immeidately prior to his disappearance, and at the senders and recipients of all emails going to and from his email addresses.

The reading ends with the nine of cups. This is a card of material well-being. I must wonder if there were any insurance policies out on James......Look to someone who has a comfortable amount of security and resources for answers.

The McStay Family

February 4, 2010 was the last time Joseph McStay answered his cell phone, and no one has heard from him, his wife, Summer, or either of their two little boys since. When a family member went to their home in Bonsall, California, to check on them, he found no one home, with the exceptions of hungry pets. Someone asked me to do a reading about the McStay family, and here it is.

We start with the two of wands. This card speaks to opportunities and partnerships, usually within a business context. In this case, it would be a new idea, that had not yet gotton off the ground. It is crossed by the Moon. The Moon can sometimes mean dreams, or psychic ability, and it can also mean deception. Because of the nature of the question, and of the subject of the reading, I am going to go with the latter. So we have a great new business idea that will provide new opportunity with deception hanging in the air. As a base, we have the ace of pentacles, reversed. Upright, this is a great card to appear beside new business ventures, but reversed, it can indicate greed and corruption; and perhaps, finances falling through. In the McStay's disappearance, it may be telling us of both. Following this, the King of Cups appears, reversed. There are almost always lies associated with this king when he comes into a reading reversed, so we can assume that this is a corrupt and dishonest male in his early forties or older. As a possible connection to this situation, the Queen of Swords comes up, also reversed. She is a mean woman, also with a dishonest character. Not kindly disposed to the situation. It does not look as though there will be any changes or new information in the near future, as the six of swords comes up reversed in the place of things that will happen. Upside right, this is a card of travel, but reversed, it indicates that the McStays are somehow "stuck" wherever they are.

The six of wands appears in the place of fears, and as this is the card of heraldry and formal messages, along with victory, it gives an idea that someone connected to this is afraid of sending any messages home or to the general public. In the place of environment, we have the Knight of Wands, reversed. He is usually a jealous, rather violent, threatening male, between the ages of twenty-five and forty. He is somewhere in the general vicinity of the McStays, and knows where they are. Wands also point south, as they symbolize fire, which is south. So I would look for the McStays somewhere south of where they disappeared. The number of a knight is twelve, so it is possible that they are "twelve" to the south, or "six" over the border......lets not forget the reversed six of swords that came up earlier; perhaps they cannot move themselves "six" to the east, but they would like to! In the place of hopes and fears, we have the seven of wands, reversed, which is anxiety and indecision, so somehow, these two elements are playing a huge role. As a final outcome, the Chariot appears. This is a card of balence; it occasionally fortells travel, but in order for travel to take place, balence on some level must be achieved. There are two horses drawing a chariot on this card, and one is black, the other white. The message is that they both want to go different directions, and the charioteer must get them to work together and move the same direction.

Prior to doing this reading, I had thought the McStays might not be with us any longer, and while I may have been correct, this reading really looks like a very bad business deal with some shady twists and turns, rather than death. Hopefully, they will be found, and their family can know what has happened.
