When you’re in a synchronicity dry spell, its like being in the middle of a desert without a drop of water. You turn slowly in circles, wondering which way the nearest outpost of civilization lies. You scan the sky, the horizon, trying to get a fix on true north. Or you may do what the guy in the above photo is doing, sit down and stretch out and hope a synchro whispers in your ear.
So how do you get back into that flow where synchronicity is your nearly constant companion?
There are different techniques. Some will work for you, some won’t. You have to experiment. The first thing I do take a look at the current transits for the day. Even if you don’t have an astrology program, you can go to Cafe Astrology and read about what’s the astrological energy for the day. Is it conducive to synchronicity?
In this chart, notice the 2 planets in the 9th house- Venus and Jupiter at 16 degrees Sagittarius. The two most benefic planets are exactly conjunct in the fire sign that symbolizes the larger picture, foreign travel and people, your worldview, spiritual beliefs, and expansion. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, so it works particularly well in that sign. This conjunction suggests an exciting energy of cooperation, intellectual and instinctive awareness of how things fit together. It’s perfect for synchronicity. The moon in the 5th house is at 22 degrees of Leo, so it forms a wide and beneficial angle to both Venus and Jupiter that facilitates heightened intuition.
So now that you know the foundation for synchronicity is solid and powerful, what’s the next step? How do you get out of the desert?
Here’s a technique that works for me. Start simple. What’re you looking for? Confirmation about a particular choice or direction? Guidance? Insight? More income? A satisfying job? True love? If you should move and where? Better health? Expansion in a particular area of your life? Whatever it is, hold that desire firmly in your mind. Give yourself the suggestion that as soon as you walk out of your house (or if you’re the guy sprawled on that dune, as soon as you stand), the first thing you hear or see will address that desire.
For the guy on the dune, it might be the repeated call of a circling bird that seizes his attention. When it flies off in a particularly direction, he decides to follow it. For you, it may be a song on the radio that’s playing as soon as you turn on your car. Or it may be something your neighbor says to you. Or perhaps a dog comes tearing through your yard and covers you with sloppy kisses.
Be alert for clusters – of numbers, objects, sounds, songs, books, words. Some people are particularly adept at noticing number clusters that hold a special significance – 111, 33, 444, 77. However the sign manifests itself, ask for another sign. And another. Be persistent. Remain open and receptive. At some point, you – like the guy in the photo – will realize you’re out of the desert, back in the flow. Even your nightly dreams will cooperate.
It’s way too easy for us to just sit back and throw out our arms and shout, “Hey, universe, c’mon now. Give me a sign.” And nothing happens. But when we’re proactive, when we’re involved, deeply motivated, open and receptive, synchronicity comes roaring out of hiding.
