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.
