Jonathan Shay Is Still Missing

Jonathan Shay, who disappeared in July of last year, still has not been found. I was asked to do an updated reading, and this time, I am going to see if I can just hone in on possible locations. It has been much too long for a thirteen year old boy to be missing. Anyone who has seen Jonathan in person, or has information about his whereabouts should contact their local police or the FBI.

Grrr....this basis of this reading is the six of wands, reversed, (enemies and bad news) crossed by the ace of pentacles, also read reversed, which is monetary corruption and ill-gotten gains. The message is already troubling, and we are only two cards into the reading. As a foundation to this situation, we find the magician, reversed. This is someone who used a skill, and quite likely Jonathan's trust, for abusive purposes. Moving along to another card describing events in the past, we have the ten of swords, which I do not like at all in this position. This is a card of endings, often sad or violent endings. But we will corroborate this with the other cards.

As a possible future event, we see the two of wands. This tells us that there are some people close to Jonathan's case who have not given up on finding him, and are still looking for him. At this point, details that would seem insignificant, along with obvious clues, are very important. The next card is the ten of wands, reversed. Here, we have not only separation and loss, but separation through duplicity; this sheds light on the reversed Magician. Somehow, the person represented by the Magician has had an opportunity to lie in person to investigators.

The first card on the staff, describing, in this case, the lies told to Jonathan, is the four of wands. He was promised a happy adventure. What actually happened is the Chariot, reversed. This is perversion, collapsed plans, and sometimes revenge. On mundane levels, this card sometimes refers to vehicles. Perhaps a Mercury it has fallen reversed, I would expect the car to have mechanical problems or to have sat, stationary, for a while. Temperance reversed is the next card. This tells of unfortunate mixes, such as bad friendships or the mixture of bad business associates and friends. Perhaps it is merely a friendship that involved individuals who are not compatible, but this aspect has somehow played a role. The nine of swords is the last card. This is not only a card of worry, but when it falls reversed, it tells of imprisonment of some kind or other. I think it is possible that the whoever was involved in Jonathan's disappearance is already in legal trouble.

Honing in on location: the abundant presence of swords in this reading points us first to the east, then we are also pointed south by wands. I keep coming back to the Chariot....not only in its more spiritual meaning, but its literal and mundane meaning. Finding a vehicle that was connected to this incident will yield some evidence, and it is a vehicle that is not terribly reliable and has probably sat, neglected, for a time. Perhaps the owner isn't even in a position to retrieve it. But it must be located. All the speculation in the world will not take the place of solid evidence.

I always hope I am wrong when an interpretation such as this is apparent. I will keep hoping and praying that I am this, time, too. In the meantime, I hope Jonathan is found; no child should be missing this long.

Jonathan Shay

Jonathan Shay disappeared in July of this year from his Missouri home, along with his cousin. His cousin was found a day later, but not Jonathan. So what happened to him and where is he? I will put the question to the cards.

We start with Temperance crossed by the Moon. Temperance is a successful combination or a well planned event, and the Moon, which is read upside right, can either mean psychic awareness, deception, or secret foes. The latter seems to fit the best, here. This basis lends itself to a scenario in which the boys may have been stalked, and the perpetrator knew when to find them unsupervised, and did so. The Moon points to an agenda of some sort, hinting that Jonathan was the victim.

This is preceded by Strength, reversed, which tells a clear tale of abuse; when this card falls reversed, it often indicates abuses of power or authority, and preying on weaker individuals. Next, we have the card of secrets, the High Priestess. Since she is upside right, I will assume that she represents an aspect of this situation that is in Jonathan's favor, somehow. We are still dealing with hidden influences. This is crowned by the World, which speaks of completion of some kind, but as this is in the realm of possibility, not past or present, we shall return to it later.

The card that follows, and shows some tension in Jonathan's situation, is the three of swords, reversed. This card often comes up to describe infighting between family members, custody battles, and ugly political/personal strife within peer groups. In reversal, which is how we find the card, it warns that the subject of the reading has compromised another in some way, and there either is, or has been, a confrontation. This makes me wonder of Jonathan witnessed a crime, or saw and heard something that could have created problems for someone in his environment, had the information become known.

The first card on the staff is the Magician. Here, the Magician is someone who knows his job, and he is in the place of fears. The message is clear: someone connected to Jonathan's disappearance is worried about the presence of an expert who can do his job and find Jonathan. In the place of general environment, we find the four of pentacles, reversed. This is wasted resources and delay. Somehow, it seems almost deliberate. In the place of hopes, we find the Hermit, reversed, which gives us the message that someone has deliberately stalled the investigation by sending searchers in the wrong direction. And finally, the reading ends with the Tower. Jonathan will be found, and someone will be held accountable. Sadly, the Tower does not predict a very happy ending, either for Jonathan or the perpetrator. This is what I read as a very strong possibility that Jonathan has met with foul play---the accountability described by the Tower. I always hope I am wrong about that type of assessment, however. Possible locations appear, via the Moon and the High Priestess, to be places where there is water; enough water to hide evidence. The World suggests that he will be found, possibly outside. Because of its position, we are being warned that the resolution of this case will not be handed to searchers and investigators; it will only come after efforts. The other clue about whereabouts has to do with the situation of a person: the four of pentacles reversed tells us that someone connected to this case has recently suffered a setback or a material loss. This is someone who should be interviewed.
