Perry Cohen And Austin Stephanos

In July of 2015, two fourteen year old boys, Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos, went out on a boat near Jupiter, Florida. They were never seen again, and a year later, their capsized boat was found off the coast of Bermuda. Someone recently asked me to do a reading for them, since they are both still missing.

This reading starts with the Chariot, crossed by the ace of cups, which is read reversed, here. The chariot is often a card that describes any pursuit that needs to be managed or "driven", but at mundane levels, it can also describe transportation of any kind. Since the Perry and Austin disappeared while boating, I am going to assume that it refers to either the boat and its operation, or the entire event. When the ace of cups falls reversed, it refers to instability, and sometimes an actual overturning! The ace of cups is also a "water" card, as the suit of cups refer to water. So I think we can already see how the problem began; there was a problem operating the boat.

Beneath this, we have the five of pentacles, upside down. When this card falls reversed, we see companionship. This tells us that Perry and Austin were trying to work together when they ran into trouble. The ten of swords appears behind this, which isn't an encouraging card. This shows failure, and desolation. Sometimes, it can denote a storm. The possible future gives us the five of cups, reversed, which points to possible recovery of either remains, or personal belongings. Next, we have the six of wands, reversed, which is, plainly and simply, bad news after a long delay.

Temperance, reversed, describes the event that led to this situation. This shows bad combinations and inability to maneuver through challenges. Next, in the place of environment, we see the ten of wands, reversed. I am a bit surprised to see this card, as it refers, in its reversed position to situations that involve misplaced trust and outright treachery, but here it is. Somehow, this played a role in the boating accident. In the place of hopes or fears, we have what looks like a fear; the Queen of Swords, reversed. This is a woman who is mean, petty, and sometimes violent; and if not an actual person, then the fear of these qualities also played a role. The last card is the Knight of Swords. He is upside right, so we can assume that he is, at least, kindly disposed toward Perry and Austin. This knight is often law enforcement or military, and may be the one to finally recover both boys. Look for him to be in his late thirties. Somehow, "crown" is a word that is connected to location. This could simply be the fact that Bermuda is English, and the boat ended up so far away from where it launched.

I always wish there was more positive news in a reading like this. I sincerely hope both boys are found soon, so their families can have closure.

Where Are The Fandel Children?

Amy and Scott Fandel, a brother and sister in Alaska, disappeared on from their home on September 5, 1978. He was thirteen years old, she was eight. They had been left home alone for the evening, and were not reported missing until the following day. Their case has not been resolved, so lets see if the Tarot can give us any answers.

This reading starts with the eight of wands, reversed, crossed by the Queen of Wands. This appears to be jealousy, aimed at this queen, almost as if harming the children were a means of expressing anger toward the Queen of Wands. Beneath this, we have the five of swords, reversed, supporting this. It is a suggestion that someone incurred a loss, of sorts, to the Queen of Wands, and exacted revenge upon her. We also have the two of cups, reversed, in the background, telling us that the loss involved either a friendship or a romantic partnership.

Crowning all of this is the Empress, reversed. She suggests that the children should not have been left alone. Following this, we have the six of swords, showing travel, possibly across water or across a border between different states.

The children were not taken by a sole abductor, as the three of wands appears in the place of "self" on the staff. The three of wands indicates a cooperative effort between different individuals. The next card, in the place of opinions of others, is Justice. This tells us that whoever took Amy and Scott felt perfectly justified in doing so. Next, we have the Fool, in the place of hopes. This is clearly a hope of moving forward without getting caught or discovered. Last, we have the two of swords, reversed. When the two of swords falls upside right, we see stalemated situations, but when it falls reversed, the message is quite the opposite: some time in the future, we will see movement in this case, but it will be unusual and almost appear to be the wrong thing at the wrong time.

The only card suggesting death or violence is the five of swords; this worries me; still, I do not see death in this reading.....that is not to say it hasn't occurred, though. The direction we see here is south......and combined with the six of swords, it is at least a couple days journey to the south. This whole crime appears to have been dreamed up and mostly executed by a woman, as there is a lot of feminine energy in this reading, lent by the Queen of Wands and the Empress. What I do not see are efforts on the part of law enforcement to find the children, or the results of such efforts.
