Coincidence or synchronicity?

On a street in Villa de Leyva, I saw three cars parked one after the other with license numbers 111, 222, and 333. It’s obviously very unlikely this would happen. To me, and at first glance, it doesn’t have a very obvious meaning which makes it a coincidence and not synchronicity. For someone else, it may be more meaningful, a meaningful coincidence, which is then a synchronicity.

I have recently had a series of these coincidences and synchronicities in my life. For instance, one morning, I had a mental image of a dog showing up at the french windows, and a dog did just that within the hour. At a restaurant yesterday, a cat was called Agatha and looked similar to the cat we have, and today we receive a photo of our cat’s mum which looks – as far as we can tell – almost exactly like the cat we saw yesterday and is also called Agatha. I have wanted to get a closer look at some big raptors flying in the area, and this afternoon, one slowly glided over me so closely that I could almost touch it.

I know from experience that series of synchronicities tend to happen in my life when I feel more on track and in flow.

So in this case, each one may be a coincidence since they are not – in themselves – all that meaningful apart from being a coincidence. And together, they seem to reflect that I am on track and in flow, and they take on meaning and become a kind of meta-synchronicity.

Update: As I wrote this, my partner told me that Venus entered Scorpio today and shared a little of what it points to. Within an hour, I saw our cat playing with something on the floor, and it turned out to be a small black scorpion! I moved the cat to another room and used a broom to sweep it outside and it was gone. This is more of a real kind of synchronicity since it’s meaningful. It gives added emphasis to what my partner said, and perhaps also mirrors a sweeping out of some of the parental conditioning in me (both my parents are born in Scorpio).

Update 2: Just now, I went to Spotify, and on top of the page, one of the suggested podcast episodes was “Scorpion Part 2”.

INITIAL DRAFT

On a street in Villa de Leyva, I saw three cars parked after each other with license numbers 111, 222, and 333. It’s obviously very unlikely this would happen. To me, and at first glance, it doesn’t have a very obvious meaning which makes it a coincidence and not synchronicity. (A synchronicity is a meaningful coincidence.)

On the other hand, I know that synchronicities tend to happen in my life when I feel more on track in life, and I have had a series of synchronicity lately. (For instance, I may have an image of something unusual or unlikely, and it happens a little later). Sometimes, synchronicities seem to mainly reflect back to me that I am on track and in flow.

As usual, I find it helpful to hold all of this lightly. A series of synchronicities seem to reflect that I am on track and in flow, and any one of them may not – in itself – mean that much more to me.

In itself, this is a coincidence. And yet, I have had a series of these in my life lately. For instance, I have an image of something unusual or unlikely, and it happens a little later.
