“Synchronistic events are the clues that point to the existence of an underlying connecting priciple.” Jean Shinoda Bolen
Venus is in Gemini now- a sign ruled by Mercury. Mercury in astrology governs the realms of thought, speech and communication. In mythology Mercury would don costumes and disguises and could gain access to realms the other gods could not. He could forge agreements through his agile use of language. He was a trickster of sorts and because of the sign’s association with duality – he is associated with synchronicity – the co-incidence of two seemingly unrelated events.
As an example of this, I was recently writing a letter to the editor about levels of Mercury in the water supply. This required some research on my part – research which had both legal and scientific aspects to it. I decided to take a break from it and think about it while driving over the mountain to the natural foods market.
Once there I picked up what needed and when I approached the woman behind the counter to ring up my purchase she said to me,”Do you write about Mercury?”
I was kind of stunned and speechless for a moment – thinking how could she have possibly known about that? And then I said,”Oh you are talking about astrology- right?”
And she said yes- that she had read one of my recent posts about the planet Mercury and that it had helped her in her thinking and that she had taken it to a group she is a member of and shared it.
Moments of synchronicity can restore a sense of the magic and mystery of life. With Venus in Gemini now it is wise to consider things related to love, beauty, abundance and pleasure in your life from a variety perspectives – like light through a prism.
One of the Sabian symbols for Venus’s entrance into Gemini is,”A glass bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders.”
