Hard Landing - Ace of Disks
I was thrown from our horse on Thursday and am feeling mighty bruised. I got the wind knocked out of me, with the impact across my upper back. Luckily, I fell in the one place still muddy on our driveway, and my hand print is there still....
The planet of sudden accidents is Uranus, and that crazy fool has been in my first house for years. Uranus is retro-ing over my Saturn (Aries) in the First, and I've seen a pattern of accidents with the great teacher (Saturn) over the years.
At age six, the time of the first Saturn square, I took my brother's red Schwinn (with the boy's bar across the top) up to the steepest hill in our new neighborhood. It was the first day we were there. We had moved from a flat coastal island, to the North Georgia mountains. I raced down, and ended up falling on my chin -- my parents rushed me to the hospital for 17 stitches.
Though I am hurting, I also feel the wake-up shock that comes with it. And the grounding, as Pluto is squaring my Sun-Saturn (square). Some energies were cracked open, and the back is associated with the unconscious. I cried a lot. Thursday night I felt waves of energy moving upward into my throat chakra and onward.
I've been getting the Ace of Disks since I fell ..and find that meaningful....
It's a grounding, albeit a rather forceful one, to put attention on what's most important.
The Disks in the Minor Arcana (of the Tarot) represent Earth; the Wands = Fire; the Swords = Air; the Cups = Water. The first card represents new ground (Earth); new inspiration (Fire); new wellsprings (Water) and new illuminations (Air). The One of Disks is the appearance of terra-firma - landing on fertile soil.
I've been in bed part of the time, with my books and following new lines of research into the divine feminine. Lately, I've felt eager to stretch into new areas of knowledge, to learn and teach/mentor. Here's a wonderful image of the Ace of Disks (sometimes shown as Pentacles) from the Victorian Romantic Tarot.

I had two car accidents twenty seven and twenty give years ago. Sudden unexpected and both times I was rear ended. Herniated discs and years of physical therapy followed. Interesting as I never associated Uranus with that and all my back issues =unconscious. I was on my way to my internship when the first one happened at a tv station. Never followed that career path after.

I have lower back problems and muscle tension right hip from Wednesday on - a lot of pain ever since. Didn't fell off a horse, just cleaning a carpet with a brush...imagine that. Had a session with my counselor on Tuesday. I'm born 27.12.52 at noon in Cologne. You think Uranus is in play here too?

A quick Look Red and I see Uranus is in your first house too. And Ur-Pl at 9 degrees are within orb (retro-ing) toward your 5 degree Cap Sun. My sense here, just a flash read, is that it's to do with your overall frame/foundation (spine, bones, flexibility, range of motion). I believe this Ur-PL sq can show us where we can become stronger of constitution in general...immunity, restoring freedom of movement. One thing that helps me with lower back is lying flat on the floor with knees bent and on a chair. Hope you feel better soon!

Forgot to wish you well, sorry for that! Know the feeling from a long time ago. Maybe you are interested in working with your horse to find what is going on. See how this is: http://www.amazon.com/The-Tao-Equus-Journey-Transformation/dp/1577314204

Thanks for the link Red, I've heard of that ...and we are very diligently working with him (since Feb)...this kind of thing is a set-back, but I'm sure I'll get back in the saddle again...
