Seed: To Plutoize
In 1930, Clyde Tombaugh discovered the planet Pluto. For 76 years, it was considered the 9th planet in our solar system. In 2006, however, Pluto got a demotion. It was declassified from planetary status to dwarf planet status, the second-largest after Eris.
Rev. Jesse Jennings writes of the creation of a new verb in Science of Mind Magazine. He says, “to pluto something is to dramatically and suddenly reduce it in significance.” Who knew?
I know astrologers who are up in arms about this, and I think there’s a spiritual lesson to be had here. Anybody else a zero-to-sixty reactor to events? A catastrophizer, as a friend of mine used to say? An end-gamer?
Here’s where plutoizing is helpful. Know your own tendency toward dramatics, and then call the problem—whatever it may be—a dwarf planet. How many times have you over-reacted only to sleep on it, and find that problem is far less significant than you’d originally thought?
One of my favorite astrologers, Melissa Stratton, says that Pluto is also associated with the esoteric symbol of the Phoenix Bird, that mythical creature who self-immolates, then rises triumphant, transformed into new life from its own ashes.
Plutoizing is highly recommended for a life lived in flow, harmony, serenity and elegant peace.
