    How am I doing today (in this place (under one of my four global Saturn lines--locational astrology) more expensive than New York, where I was under one of my four Venus lines)--my Toyota Prius´╗┐ died this week at 160,000 miles until a $4,000+ replacement battery service was completed. BS: I told Toyota USA´╗┐ What is wrong here? My laptop has an indicator when the battery is getting low and I need to recharge with the AC Adapter. He said, the battery connected to the engine cannot be recharged and cannot show diminishing life--it just goes. SO YOU BETTER HAVE A MUTUAL FUND or some other way GAWD! blesses you to cover the expense.)

    So, I'm thankful to have my Prius repaired and I'm on my way to church for 10:45am to give a prayer of thanks but also a prayer of need because all of the gas savings at the pump with the 47-56 mpg were given back this week. Now, I know regular cars have transmission problems that are costly, but $4,000+ is outrageous.

    So How Am I Doing?

    This is an excellent time for working with others in a team effort, as long as you are a leader within the team or are given a lot of independent initiative.

    It is also important that the people you work with are energetic and can do their share of the work. You would be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than yourself.

    With respect to your immediate environment, you are likely to feel more self-assertive than usual. This can be a good time for telling people how you feel about anything, for you are not willing to let others get away with intruding on your rights.

    Usually the energy of this influence is mellow enough that you can make yourself clear without causing a fight. In fact, people will probably respect you for your honesty.

    The interpretation above is for your transit selected for today:
    Mars sextile Ascendant.

    Sorry about your car kicking the bucket. but the rest of this post about horrorscopes and ascending lines makes me think you might have snorted a line too many.

    AlphaTrigger saidSorry about your car kicking the bucket...
    OK, even that wasn't quite true. His car is fine...after an expensive battery replacement. I consider a car dead when the head gasket flies off or a train hits it. Up until then...

    But yeah, I concur with your coke diagnosis...

    No, I don't do coke. It's just traumatizing to have to spend $500 one week on a new set of 45,000 mile tires then the very next week to have to buy a 4,000 dollar hybrid battery with spark plugs and not have the budget for either of these two emergencies.

    Then, after working Monday through Friday, thinking I only had to work two to four hours on Saturday, I had to work six !

    So, I looked into how am I doing, astrologically. That's dafuq.

    And it doesn't help not having man to nurture me back after getting beat up financially and emotionally. Do you know what it feels like to think you can't go to work in your own car until a credit union may or may not give you a loan? !

    With an extremely expensive component that absolutely will not last the life of the vehicle, hybrids sound to me like a poor economic choice unless purchased when the battery is relatively new and sold before the battery needs to be replaced.
