The word coincidence is often used to suggest a fluke occurrence. Dictionary.com defines is as “a striking occurrence of two or more events at one time apparently by mere chance.” But I don’t buy that. I am a firm believer in synchronicity, and Dictionary.com defines that as “the simultaneous occurrence of causally unrelated events and the belief that the simultaneity has meaning beyond mere coincidence.”
I have been guesting on a BlogTalkRadio show off and on for a couple of years now. (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/angelsandwarriors) The show consists of about 30+ minutes of chatting on an astrological topic, and then we open the phone lines for several 20-minute-plus off-the-cuff astrology readings for callers. I often ask if they have a particular question to help focus the reading, but some just want a general look at their chart and a look at the near future.
What always impresses me is, the people calling during a particular broadcast usually have similar charts and/or similar questions.
In one show, all four callers inquired about what was going on in their careers. And all four of them had their Sun in the 10th house (the house of career, and public image, among other topics). And oddly enough, all four had Grand Trines to their suns. (That’s three or more planets all trining, or aspecting each other at 120 degrees.) And though they all had different Sun Signs, and different planets forming their Grand Trines, they still all had that 10th house Sun.
In another show, all three callers were, for different reasons in their charts, dealing with their tendencies to be over-compassionate, over-empathetic and ending up being treated as doormats by doing a lot (maybe too much) for other people and too little for themselves. And all three were involved in care taking. One was a nurse, one was a home attendant, and one was spending all her time taking care of her ill relative.
And then there was the show when everyone who called was dealing with Saturn (limitations, focus) transiting their natal Neptune (idealism, spirituality, intuition, creativity) and they all were feeling kind of flat, both a little lost & depressed. It made sense. Saturn transiting Neptune can symbolize that to a person.
I am not trying to prove astrology. I personally know it works from years of practicing it, and seeing the evidence for myself, but if I was a research-oriented person, I am sure I would find reasons for these themed callers… perhaps where the Moon was that evening, or which sign was rising during the show, but it doesn’t matter all that much to me. I just feel it supplies ample evidence that there is “something” that connects us, and echoes throughout us all.
I mean, it makes sense, doesn’t it? We all have incidents in our lives when it just seems so unlikely that something happened by “chance.” Maybe we took a route home different than before, and bumped into an old friend? Maybe a friend’s favorite song comes on the radio just before they call you? The synchronicity is, in my eyes, a lot deeper than that, but I think if we can start paying a little more attention to these so-called “happy accidents” (which I believe are anything but) we might find we are all a lot more connected than we consciously notice.

Starting on Monday, April 14th, 2014, from 7pm to 9pm, I will be co-hosting, with Sharita Star, a new revamped version of the radio show “What’s Your Sign? I Have Your Number” on the Hey Z Radio Network. It will be 2 hours discussing Astrology and Numerology, including interviews and discussions with special guests from the metaphysical world. The goal is helping people open up to more possibilities, increased awareness and having some fun on air. The show was originally Sharita Star’s creation, and after being a guest on her show a number of times, we decided to join together. More details to follow as the debut approaches…
