Thanks so much Ari for your succinct examination of Christopher's chart.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Definitions of Synchronicity from Wikipedia:
Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance and that are observed to occur together in a meaningful manner. The concept of synchronicity was first described in this terminology by Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss psychologist, in the 1920s.
The concept does not question, or compete with, the notion of causality. Instead it maintains that, just as events may be grouped by cause, they may also be grouped by meaning. A grouping of events by meaning need not have an explanation in terms of cause and effect.
From the religious perspective synchronicity shares similar characteristics of an “intervention of grace.” Jung believed that synchronicity served a similar role in a person's life to dreams with the purpose of shifting a person's egocentric conscious thinking to greater wholeness. It has been asserted that Jung's analytical psychological theory of synchronicity is equal to intellectual intuition.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Examination of Christopher’s core EA dynamics
Christopher’s evolutionary condition is 3rd stage Individuated, moving toward 1st stage Spiritual. With natal Pluto in Libra in the 10th house conjunct the Midheaven, he has been sharing, comparing and evaluating information with a wide variety of people – partners, friends, colleagues, celebrities, politicians, actors, artists, bloggers, internet personalities, strangers – in order to develop his own individuality and to bring equality and balance to his relationships. He has been learning lessons in self-determination, social and emotional maturity, adhering to a high standard of conduct in society, and actualizing a social role. This formula has been operating for about 7 primary lives. His South Node 29.31 deg Pisces in the 3rd house correlates to the collection of facts, data, information and raw material from the environment, also the categorization and classification of this data, in a cycle that is culminating, with a new cycle just on the horizon.
Christopher’s “synchronicity” experiences number in the hundreds, and he’s adding to his collection regularly. Not all of the information that he is collecting is strictly regarding synchronicity, but other interesting, weird, unusual, hidden or occult items correlating to his South Node in Pisces in the 3rd house.
The ruler of his South Node, Neptune in Sag in the 12th house, acts as the facilitator of a conscious desire to collect these vast amounts of data of an unusual or cutting edge nature, and a need to seek out and realize beliefs or knowledge that transcend culturally based values. As Ari said, this could be seen as an exaggeration of his findings which would result in egocentricities being dissolved. Pluto in the 10th and Mercury (ruler of NN) in the 8th, could breed resistance to the process of surrendering to Source. Or it could mean that he is already surrendering to Source – but this is an ongoing journey for his Soul toward Source. It is likely that he is learning lessons in humility, discernment and surrender in this regard. His project could be an attempt to feel in control of his life, or to induce a sense of individuality against feeling unintegrated and diffused.
“In certain cases, these individuals have been, or can become, powerful icons because
of the power expressed or projected through that one aspect or dimension of
themselves. Some have or will exhibit a larger-than-life aura or impact on
others. Through the power of their belief in who they are, and what they
are doing, they have the ability to captivate the interest, imagination,
support or persecution of mass consciousness.”
– Pluto Vol. I, p.217 (12th house or Pisces)
The compulsion to collect this sheer volume of data has been a prior Soul evolutionary intention that would naturally lead to the advancement of his Soul intention in the current life, that is, the development of his full individuality and emotional self-security (see PPP below) via the building of a philosophical belief system based on self-analysis, ego-humiliation, Natural Law (NN Virgo 9th ruled by Mercury Leo 8th), and the expansion of his intellectual structures.
With ruler of SN, Neptune in Sag in the 12th house, there are no boundaries: the whole universe is there to explore. This also pertains to his “inner” universe, his higher mind, and Higher Self. Sag is the sign of exploration, the traveler, who is forever seeking greater horizons and making wider and wider connections. The quest is to understand life and oneself in a cosmological, metaphysical, philosophical or religious context. Neptune conjunct the South Node of Uranus gives us more information regarding the egocentric structures that his Soul had created. In the distant past the types of data collected were classified as extraordinary, different, unusual, bizarre, paranormal, occult: “the mysteries of life.” There had possibly been an element of secrecy, self-delusion or mental confusion in his undertakings.
He had attributed a special meaning or significance to the experiences and discoveries that served to open his inner feminine world (Neptune conj Vesta/Pallas and SN Ceres). He never ceased to be in wonderment and amazement in his pursuance of dissolving all barriers in order to merge his individual power with the cosmic whole. He kept meticulous records of his findings (NN Virgo). His Soul had been desirous of balancing the “feminine” aspects within his psyche, by moving away from the extremities of patriarchal distortions (10th house Pluto). In his search for truth and knowledge, he developed natural compassion and nurturance for himself and for others, thus moving away from the patriarchy (PPP 4th).
However, because he could not “prove” his findings, he was branded as sacrilegious and suffered persecution and judgment by the consensus society at large. Deviating away from societal norms (3rd stage Individuated), he wished to move society along a new path of discovery and awakening, but due to his sensitive nature, the ‘disapproval’ left him feeling disillusioned and estranged from society, thus moving him closer to the 1st stage Spiritual evolutionary condition, and catapulting him toward the PPP 4th to learn emotional self-security. These overwhelming past life experiences had lead to mental trauma (SN Uranus conj Neptune), spiritual disillusionment (Neptune) and alienation from society (Sag).
Continuing in his search for truth and meaning via the collection of a vast array of information to which he had attributed a special meaning or significance, resulted in suffering massive disillusionment when the material did not live up to his beliefs. Of course, the sense of meaninglessness then lead to further efforts in searching for material that would provide meaning, truth or value for his Soul. His research into the paranormal had defied the logic and reason as defined by his Pluto 10th “reality,” therefore he was liberating and transforming himself from those past-life constraints (Uranus Scorpio 11th).
Christopher mentioned that he lost all his friends in the 90’s. This could have been created by his Soul for the purpose of liberating from over-dependency upon others, in order to fulfill his current life Soul purpose: the development of his full individuality, emotional self-security, and finding friends on an instinctual basis who would resonate with his Soul (PPP Aries 4th). The PPP (future direction) means following a new path in a completely “unplanned” and spontaneous way, by following his instincts, impulses, desires and magnetic attractions to others that will lead to the re-identification of his self-image and a strengthening of his emotional security structures. This would bring a balancing of discordant aspects within himself by meeting his own emotional needs within relationships.
He may have felt blocked by society to fulfill a social purpose (Venus ruler of MC conj Saturn), and the imbalances in friendships would have progressively lead to tuning into his inner world (PPP 4th) to find that emotional self-security from within himself, by progressively cutting down his dependency upon others for a sense of who he is and what social role he “should” play. His new relationships would allow the instinctive expression of feminine aspects within his psyche and the intelligence that naturally comes from that (South Nodes of Pallas and Juno conjunct PPP) – this could also mean playing a nurturing role in a family situation. The transformation of his self-image would encompass the building of a philosophical belief structure (NN Virgo 9th) based on a process of self-analysis that would deflate the balloon of egocentricity and bring about self-improvement, humility, and a redefined social role in society, with a purpose that would be needed by society.
This new development would be facilitated by Mercury Leo 8th, by a process of metamorphosis of his intellectual structure whereby old information would be discarded in order to bring in new information, resulting in the expansion of his intellectual framework. With Mercury conjunct the Moon (conj NN of Neptune, and SN of Mercury), his Soul has been working on this area for a long time. His Moon conj Mercury is sufficiently ‘pure’ in its positive aspects, expressed in the nurturing role he plays in his family. He has been merging with symbols of intellectual and spiritual power in order to overcome his limitations and to give him a sense of more power. With Mercury there is constant movement, with information constantly coming in, and old information being discarded to make way for the new. He has placed himself at the top of a pyramid structure which will cyclically be toppled by his own egoic self-humiliation through a process of honest inner assessment which will lead to positive change.
Pluto makes an interesting sextile-sextile-trine pattern in the “water” houses with Neptune (ruler of his SN) and Mercury (ruler of his NN). On the other side, the PPP forms a grand trine with Neptune (ruler of SN) and Mercury (ruler of NN). This means that the transition from the past into the present is carried out quite easily, and brings evolution through the water element. He is able to co-operate with the evolutionary forces by changing past behaviour patterns into new patterns of growth. However, this grand trine could also mean a resistance to change.
So why is Christopher having these regular synchronicity experiences?
Is his Soul creating these experiences for evolutionary reasons?
If so, then why synchronicity?
What Soul purpose lies behind all of this?
Christopher’s interest in “synchronicity” (correlating to Jupiter, Sag, and the 9th house) goes back to his teens when he experienced a dramatic synchronicity episode. Since then, he’s been on a mission to explore and record this phenomena which seems to be operating frequently in his life, culminating in his contribution among 26 authors to the book, The Sync Book. Jupiter Cancer 7th conj Sun is a sharing of his philosophies and beliefs with a variety of people, and a tendency for emotional entanglement with others. His Sun (current life purpose) and Jupiter (correlating to synchronicity) are both inconjunct Neptune, the ruler of his South Node, an aspect that induces humility through crisis situations. Venus Leo 8th correlating with pre-existing relationship patterns describes an inclination to make the partner the very centre of his universe, osmosing power from others, and domination/submission issues. Crisis situations in his relationships (and this also includes his relationship to the Divine) would induce humility by a willingness to surrender so that ‘larger forces’ can manifest through his actions, purpose and relationship dynamics.
The theme of self-analysis, self-improvement, humility and service is re-emphasized with Virgo ruling the 9th house. Synchronistic or other unusual experiences would be put through a filter of discernment, wisdom and Natural Law in order to present honest findings. With Mercury ruler of the NN and the 9th house, there would be careful attention to detail in the chronicling of his findings.
Sag in the 12th is a search for the natural god. However, having the ruler of his SN, Neptune, in the 12th house, he could be prone to delusive thinking that will always end is disillusionment. This process leads to discrimination and discernment of information, as he asks “What is real?” “What is the truth?” He will discover that synchronicity is part of Natural Law and is not an illusion. Some might say that the Universe is speaking to him, and that “synchs” can only happen naturally. Synchronicities can point to a larger meaning that underlies life, as a symbolic way of perceiving the universe that regards all phenomena as interwoven by linked analogies or correspondences.
“We will watch and guide surreptitiously
how can we not connect
when you are me and I am thee?”
And finally, here’s an interview with Nassim Haramein on “Synchronicity:”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sU1a4j5tpvU
He says: “The vacuum or field is receiving all information and it’s feeding back the reality based on the information received. An individual who becomes more and more aware of themselves, who becomes more and more aware of their relationship to the vacuum is getting better and better at feeding information to the vacuum, and the vacuum is becoming better and better at giving the manifestations faster and faster and more and more accurately.
“They think of something and it happens, but it’s always a little different than what you imagine, because what you feed to the universe comes back to you modified from everybody else feeding things into the vacuum. It’s really important to know that you are creating your reality, but that reality is also creating you. There’s a feedback so there’s an absolute correlation of creation occurring as a result of the vacuum. The vacuum or field is co-ordinating all events. The higher and higher you get in the crystalline nature of the vacuum – it is better that you get the structure of the vacuum the way you want it – the easier it is for all the co-ordinations to occur and the synchronicity goes through the roof.”
A few of my notes on “synchronicity:”
The vacuum or field is self-organizing everything, accessing information beyond normal sensory reach. The translation of visual information is a new way of looking at consciousness. It is not the brain that is doing the thinking. What’s going on in one’s head is not going on out there. There is no clear distinction between ourselves and the whole universe. We are borderless – realizing there is no division. Thought seems to create things instantly. Random events are unlikely.
If you are reading this: thanks so much for allowing me to use your chart for study purposes. I'm sure it has been very interesting and educational for members of this messageboard. Good luck in your journey!
