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.
