Synchronicity Is A Thing

The Red Shoes

Hello Mystic,

Hope you’re doing well in the crazy season, Xmas and otherwise (AKA two big outer elephants in the room 🙂

This stormy weather has got me thinking about electricity and synchronicity. I need to tell you about something that happened a few months ago. It will stay with me forever. It all started with one of your blogs which I thought you’d be chuffed to know. There were four signs, and by the end it pretty much slapped me in the face. Turn the other cheek? Enough already, I get it!

1. I was lost in your historic blogs, clicking on whatever took my fancy. Somewhere you mentioned The Red Shoes. Because I have ballet history it reminded me of the film The Red Shoes, starring the wonderful Australian artist Robert Helpmann (which I STILL have yet to see, must get on that). Red Shoes snuck into the back of my mind.

2. Casual Friday at my work – we have a lot of technicians where I work and all you can see of them is silver lab coats and pants legs and shoes. One of the few female techs was wearing BRIGHT red trainers. I registered, said hey I like your shoes. Kept seeing them go past me during the day. 2nd layer of Red Shoes imbedded in my brain.

3. Saturday evening, planning to go to my local metaphysical shop on Sunday morning to get some beautiful oracle cards I’d been eyeing up. Go to their store online to check the price, and the usual “people who bought this also bought…..Red Shoes – Clarissa Pinkola Estes” Really??? Connecting the dots. Ok, now a red neon light is pulsing in my brain. I have to find Red Shoes when I go tomorrow.

4. Later on Saturday night, innocently watching a doco on David Bowie on one of the non mainstream channels. What do they play? Let’s Dance, put on your Red Shoes and dance the blues….Seriously!! This is now a done deal. I MUST have The Red Shoes. I tend to question everything but this I cannot ignore, and it seriously has me buzzing!

Needless to say I ended up buying The Red Shoes online, and in the process of trying to find it in the new age shop I bought Women Who Run with the Wolves. Still working my way through the book; it’s poetic, timeless and amazing. It’s just like everyone says, including yourself, and I know I will read it many times. I listened to The Red Shoes, and had a very unexpected and emotional reaction. There were many tears and the memories that flooded me were overwhelming, but a release nonetheless. It was cathartic and a catalyst towards integrating my past with the now and the future. All three are one.

So thank you Mystic, thank you bright red trainers, thank you new age website, thank you David Bowie, and thank you Universe for weaving this all together in a really wonderful and magic way.

Much love,
Anchors Away

WOW i love this and yes synchronicity is such a thing. Especially NOW – as Uranus is in square to Pluto – the 5th square of the Zap Zone, one more to go – and stationing Direct in 11 days.  Uranus is totally synchronicity – the repeating messages or recurring themes, the stray snippets of conversation that you feel sure were meant-for-you, the healing coincidence.

FYI, if you have Mercury in any sort of close aspect to Uranus in your natal chart, you’re super-prone to these. But EVERYONE, the more you open up this snazzy, electric, sparkling synchronicity – the more it becomes clear. The information or guidance you need just zaps  you when you need it.

Thoughts?

Had to share… read this post on my break at work. Finished, ended break, returned to e-mail inbox.

The first e-mail started with a book review (we’re affiliated with a book store), and the first review was for a children’s book, about a mermaid who finds a Red Shoe.

In searching the local library website for the audio book mentioned, I instead found a new novel that matching an exact, absent-minded comment of mine from the night before. Red shoes are involved.

I think it was a wink from the universe to remind me to watch & play along!

Mercury and Uranus contacts are related to synchronicities?! I have Merc conjunct Asc opposite Uranus (which is conjunct descendant, of course). Is this why my life is full of unusual experiences? Even other people have commented that I always see weird things. Oh my god, I feel so much better that maybe I’m not imagining that I attract the weird. But of course, that’s how I like it anyways…

No nn no. I dont consider cds old. But my Virgo posse and SatCap wants value for money. The companies make more out of dloads than cds. My reasoning is. ‘practical earth’ reasoning; not the result of ‘intuitive water’ sublimations (2x Kat, 2x Scorp)

The whole of this transformation seems to be dividing the synchronicity from the limbic patterning.

I’m left with one last reread, one last “am I making this up?”

If I can figure it out, if I can let it go, I’ll finally trust my soul. Now if I could just get my soul to trust me.

LOved ‘Red Shoes’ the story and the ballet. The dancer opposite Robert Helpmann was Moira Shearer in the movie.
Saw a note in a clothing window once that said: you can dance up the road of life or plod along it.
From the woman that runs with the pit bulls. That happens to some who can’t get their own wolf to run with.

I find synchronitices all the time and it is interesting to talk about, but I always tend to forget them shortly after and also since I do believe in defining and making up your own “destiny” and information too and not just to be exposed to randomness, symbolism, string theory or whatever. Sometime though I think it’s good to follow the red threads, at least if it makes sense to you. ( and when you do you greater your own synchronicities 😉 ) the most random one recently was when I read the line “a man dressed in black” on… Read more »

I had this yesterday. Well, it started in 2012 with the first pluto uranus square year of the water snake. I made a painting of snakes and hung it in my helpful people sector. Shortly after, snakes hatched from my garden, my neighbors killed them, which pushed me to finally move. Anyway, 2 years later, I comissioned artwork for a tattoo and included a photo of one of my snakes. Appointment got bumped up from January to last week to on the day after I ended employment at my last job. Seemed meant to be. Then, at the new place… Read more »

I got the tattoo with the snake and roses and bees and lavender. And I hope I don’t regret it once the transit is over. But I like the snake symbol so much. I appreciate it as something that transforms without changing, really. Like, as mystic wrote about before, a snake goes blind, weak, loses venom, before a change. A snake sheds its whole body, just to be a little bigger. Not like a butterfly. Not a visible, beautiful, pretty thing. Just torture to grow a little bigger. And that’s what happened to my life in the zz. Same career.… Read more »

Uranus conjunct mercury in 10th house and quintile my AC. *Synchronicity Rules*. My most momentous and happy occasions were all brought by synchronicity and following signs. Some days are rife with it, as if the universe is laying out a bread-crumb trail to help me find whatever it is i need. I suppose that it’s just as well, becoz Uranus is also conjunct my mars – so my erratic urges to get up and go and change the scene or vibe can leave me in situations where i DO need signs and synchronicity to get me back on some track,… Read more »

This is so awesome, thanks for sharing, was a pleasure to read. I am a Merc-Uranus-Sun conjunct person in my 5th – I feel like I create synchs sometime. I can also relate to that feeling of the universe leaving a breadcrumb trail. So cool about you dropping law and going into philosophy through that string of synchs! Book dropping on your head – too awesome. I get a lot of license plate messages, several plates of repeat numbers everytime I go for a drive.

Synchronicity is a foundational force of civilisation, It was created by the gods thousands of years ago to make shit happen without their constant input.. (I think heaven is like up to SYCH.app version 0M). They have most of the bugs out.
I think we are hard wired to both allow a sychronistic series of events to unfold or put events into play and create our own synchronicity. Without it all of us would be sooo bored.

Makes sense. I have a very world-weary conscience. i love art and such and people and always have this underlying feeling of wanting to uplift and inspire people and make the world better/interesting and such. But synchronicism/symbolism is mostly self-going and multiple, but can also appear in clusters. When anything gets more attention because it is the currant syncronic symbolism, I always get this awkward itch that it has to be ” balanced” out with other syncronicies or symbolism, so that the balance or dynamics of the zeitgeist or cultural/social climate doesnt get to monochrome. You have to create the… Read more »

World weary. Or you could say close to the point of surrender and acceptance ? I’ve always believed that the universe has a much better plan for me than I could ever map out for myself. The Synchro force is all around us waiting for us to get out of the way and just go with it. A world weary state of surrender and acceptance is an appropriate mindset for success in these times I’d say. I have that itch too. The problem I see is that the synchro force can be mimiced, manipulated and spawned in a way that… Read more »

That particular chapter of Women Who Run With the Wolves was always a heavy hitter for me, too. I have given away copies of that books to so many girlfriends in need of its wisdom and comfort that I can’t even remember how many times I’ve bought the paperback. It really… makes you feel like you’re not crazy in a world that constantly suggests that woman acting on her instincts = crazy, dangerous, evil, etc. Thanks Clarissa.

I never found cards, but once I found a copy of The Hobbit that was bound to the cover upside down. It was open to the very front (back?) and had 13 written inside. I would have left it there but it was starting to rain and would have been ruined. It was years ago.

Wow! I love this! I’m also glad I’m not the only one experiencing similiar strange synchronicity right now. For the last few months, I’ve been having dreams of returning to various shrines in Japan that I visited over 10 years ago. I haven’t thought so much of Japan after I lived there, a little bit of nostalgia here and there, but nothing more than doting upon it like you would of a good memory. But recently, some sort of strong intensity came over, like my mind was telling me I not just needed to go, but I MUST go back.… Read more »

Also, I wake to see that the lights on the top third of my painstakingly decorated solstice tree have burned out, also causing me to see red. *shakes fist at tree* I was once an aspiring ballerina, now I’m just a Nutcracker, sugar plums.

Manifesting a relationship is sticky business. If you haven’t learned all your lessons you’ll ask for something without your REAL needs in mind. And that is just another lesson…

I kept coming up with all these attributes and actually finding them but I left out the part where they accept me for who I am because I don’t exactly practice the best self acceptance.

Try all you want, without self esteem and boundaries you can’t have a good relationship…just a great person who’s probably unavailable or tragically flawed and reflecting all your insecurities…

Kind of. Ask yourself, what do you really want? And pursue the feeling relentlessly. Like, not as a mental mantra, but as an energy-feeling thing. Let yourself be surprised by what you want and keep on until you think you’ve found the feeling-thing you’ve searched for. And the universe will give you the thing you think is the feeling. And, often, for me at least, the thing it gives is a joke. Because if you can imagine a feeling, you feel it. And its manifest just in the asking. The thing is an echo.
