Post Pluto Transit Purchase Or Mid-Life Crisis In Disguise?
I cooled off on a car purchase early this week because I thought I was being impulsive. but now I am having second thoughts.
Every single car I have owned in my life has been the choice of the man in my life. My dad, boyfriends, and husband. Now I am 45 and separated, with a 15-year-old car in need of repairs, I have been thinking about getting some new transport.
Last week at work, I blew others away (and myself) at how extraordinarily capable I have become. Years of being highly sensitive and responsive to others are now equally matched by confidence. I have a high level of expertise, a capacity to get stuff done, and the ability to support and influence others. I feel humble and powerful. Thanks, Pluto transit!
I thought it was appropriate to mark the moment with something symbolic. I want to choose for myself the vehicle in which I determine the direction I am traveling, where I stop and how fast I go.
It’s not an outrageous purchase, it’s still a second-hand car. My questions are – am I being reckless with this realization of my own power? Is this a mid-life crisis in disguise? Could I take some more time to reflect? Or is it an empowering time to mark this deep internal shift with a material/symbolic object and just go for it??

Hi Newly Independent Sea Goat,
You know what? I KNOW there is a school of thought about not needing a material THING to symbolize your independence or power. But i am FEELING this for you. Your reasoning resonates with me. It would be a brilliant apres Pluto transit purchase and i think you should hustle down to the car place a.s.a.p. It’s like a ritual!
Optimally, get your new wheels ON the Solar Eclipse. And while we are at it – Uranus is in Taurus now. The planet of rad in the sign of money. Provided you can afford it without violating financial sanity rules, why NOT an outrageous purchase? Why not make this super-talismanic, get numbered license plates & every desirable feature that you can fund?
Perhaps in the alternate dimension version of the Persephone story, she motors on out of Hades in a red Maserati or something. Even if it were a mid-life crisis, so what? Crisis = Opportunity and all that. Get one with a fantastic sound system so you can roar around the place blasting inspirational anthems. Or Disco. Whatever you want. You earned this. Choose amazingly.
Whenever we’re making a move of this ilk, really crusty old demons seem to emerge. Their chorus is along the lines of “who do you think you are?” Or “you can’t do something vulgar and show off.” “If you’re going to be successful and independent, at least feel bad about yourself.”
Fuq all that. You don’t even need analysis. Tune out those crappy and outmoded inner voices by blasting your new car stereo super loud.
