please just for today pronounce that Ur-ah-nes 🙂
and yes-we live on the beautiful Oregon coast.
Yesterday, as Susan and I were returning from the vet (our greyhound hurt her skinny back leg), I said: Ya know what? Tomorrow Uranus moves into Aries for the first time in 84 years–wonder what’ll happen. When the Tsunami warning sirens went off around 4am this morning — I was pretty impressed in addition to getting up and getting busy preparing to take care of folks, rescue cats and dogs, making sure our generator was ready, etc etc There is much to say about this Promethean passage–and I will gather quotes as the day goes on. BUT–The Great Awakener? Whew–I’ll say.
Where ever in your chart the early degrees of Aries land–you might want to ask yourself–What sirens are you hearing? Where might you want to stay awake? Got any safety plans in place?

As Uranus approaches its first exact square to Pluto in June 2012, we’re only going to see this whole process accelerate, bring in more communities and wake up more people. In a phrase, 2012 is about everything, all at once.
