Ask Mystic: Is Venus Retro Bringing Me More Than A Sock?

Miles Aldridge

 Hi MM,

Hope you’re doing well, I just wanted to share a little WEIRD arse occurrence that happened to me, a Leo.

I left my Gemini husband and moved out with my two girls about 18 months ago. Taking mostly just clothing and a few bits and bobs. Anyway 18 months down the track their father still hasn’t managed to get his sh%& together as far as the whole taking care of the kids thing goes. 2 weeks ago my daughter came home from school wearing an odd pair of HIS socks. She’s 6. One of them I noticed was actually one of mine from a very long time ago. He always wrecked my socks…my virgo rising couldn’t cope with that.

ANYWAY this morning she was getting ready for school and pulled out his odd pair of socks to put on, I took them and threw them in the bin. I went to my room and reached into my cupboard to grab some gym clothes as my others were in the wash. As I pulled out the sports bra I rarely wear, out dropped the identical sock which was paired with the odd sock of his which was actually mine!!! What are the odds!!!??? I went to the bin and pulled out the sock and lo and behold…. I’m wearing them right now. My two identical socks. Together again. A bit stretched but a perfect length for my new gym shoes.

I held onto that odd sock for 18 months!!!! It made the move with me, as an odd sock, and I never threw it out…. and now it’s found it’s mate.

What the actual fuck? Please tell me Venus Retro is bringing me more than a sock. pllleeease

Leo Not Really A Lost Sock Freak

Dear Leo Not Really A Lost Sock Freak,

Firstly, Venus is not yet RETRO officially but she has been in the Shadow Zone since June 22 so YES this is a Venus Retro event. And frankly, lost socks/odd socks are like messengers from the universe. Feet are Pisces which means Neptune which means Shamanic which means multi-layered symbolism via the mundane.

YES the mundane. Mundane means “worldly.”  Anima Mundi means World Soul. The idea that great and amazing realizations come down to us only via intermediaries (like God Agents) or during some orgy of mindfulness is crap. Incredible insights, pattern recognition or even the sensation that we are not alone are just as likely (arguably more so) to manifest whilst doing the laundry, walking past the chemist trying not to lock eyes with some fuqwit Muggle, during bad sex or (yes) via an odd sock scenario.

But really, i would say you’d have the courage to up and go, create your new life and support your daughters solo – it’s pretty obvious you were not just evacuating that toxic city because of a minor outbreak of shit – so you’ve got way more good things coming to you than lost socks being re-mated. That was like an omen.  You will find your mate. Or he/she will find you and it will be amazing. So put that sports bra back on, Amazon the fuq up and realize that when Jupiter in Leo is square Saturn in Scorpio, you ARE going to get deep omens and messages via the laundry or similar.

Or at any time, really. There is a reason i am always pushing house witching, space clearing and Feng Shui – Anima Mundi people.  Venus is bringing you more than a sock but VALUE that sock hook up.  My Sock Qi is way worse. My thing was that constantly I’d be finally giving up on an odd sock and throwing it out, only to then discover it’s mate.

What if socks are sacred messenger bots? Like years ago the divine energy that WAS concentrated in churches, olive groves and ancient temples was driven out by modern development into socks?  October 9 is Venus Out Of Shadow. May the Sock be with you, May Twin Socks be re-united.

I just found my toe ring that I haven’t seen since 2006 (when I was preggo & my feet swelled so much I had to take the ring off)! Yes, Pisces rising 😉

Your response made my day and yes yes yes to discovering messages whilst doing housework, laundry, etc. I often find that is when they come to me the most.

cool story. 🙂 and oh hi this is my life! as i clean, curate, and pack up my house (with venus traveling through my 4th of course) i’ve found the ex-husband’s socks, the karmic crab’s socks, boxers from last fall’s aries, a big lock of hair from the gemini this spring… what to do with it all?? bury? burn?

Wow I just posted this 🙂 Sox and Sex Cleaned out my sock drawer today, there must have been about 40 socks in there, it seemed to me like a sad reflection of many modern love lives …absolutely loads of single socks that had seen better days…a few I recognised from over 10 years ago but had kept in the hopes of finding their other halves. Have you ever thrown one sock away thinking “no chance” only to discover the partner a few months later? Like ships in the night, chance non-meetings. Right place, wrong time. Right person, wrong time.… Read more »

Omg. Reunited socks as a metaphor for potential soulmates. Beaut! I’m a Leo too, straining from some serious love weirding/Venusian vampery. I hope my Venus retro reverses the difficult but not insoluble mess I’m now in, revealed courtesy of that venus-saturn square last week. It was not good but revealed where two people in our crazy world of remote and impersonal communications got their wires seriously crossed in early March. Too long a saga to explain without an essay but needless to say I’m calling on all the powers I know to resolve it favourably. So, I’m just waiting to… Read more »

Do not diminish the power of the sock. Having recently moved from Melbourne to Toronto, I shipped all of my worldly possessions by sea. when they arrived many months later I discovered that no, I did not take any of my bed linen with me but I did however ship many unmatched socks! You have convinced me to hold on to these solo socks to see what may just manifest!

Absolutely. The menial is the thing because Life is the liminal, the betwixt and between the grand moments. All the living leading up to finding the sock pair is the juice. But the beta waves both allow meaning to unfold and prevent awareness of it. I think.

Love this story! Reclaiming the sock to adorn the feet for new kicks and gym time.

Not sure if Venus was retro then, but about 2003 we were visiting a friend and she let us sleep in her bed. My husband accidentally left a sock there. She thought it belonged to her recently ex-boyfriend and mailed it to him. No note, just the sock. We still laugh about it.

I love this. Speaking of feet etc, I’m a Pisces and broke my toe last week, stubbed it walking around the house. I took it to mean I have to slow down but who knows (I also burned a finger on the oven yesterday! Maybe it’s more of a phlanges issue? Gemini? Lol idk).

i burned my arm and cut my toe and I knew they were signs that I had to shift my energy, just little wake up calls.

Random. I recently had a sock encounter as well.

I came home from a trip to Europe and apparently picked up a pair of girl’s ankle socks in Barcelona and washed them before I realised I acquired them. They looked kinda shady and weren’t my size so I unfortunately had to turf them. Soz American gal in my Barcelona hostel. I hope they weren’t your faves.

Unmatched socks are my metaphor for hellish overwhelm. Leo spouse refuses to match -merely buys more. I have heaved bags out to charity.

Truly cannot abide the sheer volume of Costco more is more mentality- instead of mindfulness and gratitude with what we have. Stewardship and quality are my antidotes.

Love the sock metaphor and agree that it’s an omen of balance, inner dreams manifested and injustice redressed!

Yes, one of my boys went camping recently, his mother packs him 6 pairs of perfectly matched socks.. He came home with one sock !

Ahahahaha I love this so much!!! The signs and reminders are never what you think they’ll be. So Venus RX 2015, day one of the shadow zone bought me back my ultra 8th house Crab. Not that he ever really went away but I was trying very hard to move on. I’ll be back in his city about a week after Venus is direct, so he is being very positive about the future, I’m wary and cautious but secretly hoping and a wishing. We shall see, anything could happen in the next few weeks. Venus is mainly going to be… Read more »

The title had me rolling.

Bah humbug to Feng Shui. Every person I know lucky in love lives in a perpetual mess. An orderly house FEELS nice but it don’t attract ‘beep!’

All you can do is follow your bliss and trust.

yes well it makes sense though no? a plant in your whatever sector isn’t going to shift years of unhealthy self esteem, sabotage and not going out and living life. Its only a plant.

I leave my lovers on the other side of the Styx, once I’m gone there’s no going back, baby.

Crush is away just now. The unknown unknowns, now that’s what trips this fish over.

Hang on

I’m a fish, therefore it is not possible to trip over.

Hmm

Venus retrograde, doesn’t mean I have to run and hide. (Swim and hide, whatever)

Is it crazy to think a message can come via an inamimate object. I have broken and stubbed toes on skirting boards, stairs, chairs badly many times in the last few toxin bleaching years and can put an excellent business case for wearing steel cap boots in the home. I am convinced it is a sign I am being derided as each and every time this is revealed to be true in the days that follow. If it happens now I know to review my sometimes less than sympathetic attitude towards colleagues and weigh business risks carefully.

O M G he put odd socks on your daughter, goddammit ! He held your other one hostage for 18 months. What a dastardly character the ex is ! Are you sure he hasn’t been to a witch doctor and put a voodoo spell on that sock ? You didn’t think of that did you ! OMG you put it on ! Quietly now, shhhhhh, slowly, sit down and very carefully remove the whole foot. Seriously .. My experience of Venus retros is a hell of a lot more dastardly than the return of the voodoo sock. Mars retros are… Read more »

Same, 2nd house ? Maybe we should find out where lucifer is in rehab and join him there. I can just see us now, sitting around the heated pool in white terry toweling dressing gowns and towels around our heads making resolutions.

Hole-y Socks! I am floored. LNRALSF is performing a FEAT of parenthood, as a SINGLE Mom. Waking foot symbolism = dreams walking in broad daylight. Burn down the house!

No joke – I found my six-year-old son putting a sock to his peepee before his bath last night. He was wondering if it fit! No one can prepare you for being a parent!

I gave myself a wry smile
at the deep realisation.
It wasn’t him getting at me.
He never had enough
power for that.
It was me all along.
Allowing
the negative energy
of it all
to pervade my spirit.
I reclaimed my power
right there on the street,
on the way to buy groceries.
Like it was nothing.
Even though it was everything.

Too funny ! On my end , my daughter & I had a sudden craving for Krispy Kreme ( a Southern delicacy ) and headed out. She said ” The hot light will be on, it will be a sign” Carrying the joke forward I said “Yep, it’ll be a Happy Birthday to me from the powers that be. A sign they are looking out for us !” And waddaya know at an hour it normally would not be on, there it was . Lit up telling us hot donuts were just made. We pulled over in the parking lot… Read more »
