katydid, that sounds uber-scary!!!!! It also sounds like one's worst nightmare.
I agree that it is very Uranian in nature - the suddenness, the choosing to brake, when that was possibly the worst thing you could have done, and then managing to slide across 4 lanes of traffic.
It's the stories of surviving things like this which interest me. This seems also quite Uranian.
For instance, in the aftermath of my car accident, I found a house with the outside light on, and pulled into the house, hoping they would be welcoming. It turned out that these people remembered me from when I was a teenager (I'd been on the way to my parents' farm, but was a good 30 miles away, and over the other side of a major river system when the crash occurred) and they remembered my parents from church or something, so were very welcoming, and even asked me to visit them again to tell them how my little boy fared, as he had to have stitches in a head wound.
As Humphrey Bogart once said, (and I paraphrase): Of all the houses along that very long road, they were the ones who left their light on, almost as though they were expecting me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was well after 10pm by this time, and country folk are usually early to bed.
As a result of this whole experience, I'm also sure there are no such things as `accidents'.
I just checked my chart again for that night, and tr Pluto had begun to form a square with the Descendant/Asc axis, and had turned Rx 4 months earlier, but was still close enough to be within a square.
Yes, Uranus was forming a square with my asc/desc axis at the time as well. Yours was a Pluto experience, and you guys did a double roll over.
Yikes. That is Plutonian. I mean to do a few rolls like that and then recover like the phoenix, and drive yourself to safety.
And imagine if you had somehow come to the wrong house, a very unwelcoming home, that would have been horrid. So it is fitting that you found your parents church friends, like a big JUPITER welcoming you inside to bandage your wounds.
And the weird thing about my tapping the brakes, just a split second before I did it, i heard my own voice in my head say NO, don't brake! I KNEW better.
But I was sailing down a hill and saw the water pooled up at the bottom, and panicked a bit. BUT I IGNORED MY OWN WARNING !
So the Uranus, which by transit, was forming a grand square to my Pluto apex, took over and literally scared the shiett out of us. But just as swiftly laid us back down safely, out of harms way.
Jupiter in Taurus in my 12th, conjunct my asc, is the ruler of my 8th. It is in mutual reception with Venus in Sag in the 7th. I seem to have nine lives.
