The Pluto Cycle
The “Ship Hits the Sand” cycle is brought to you by the planet from the dark side: Pluto.
Like it or not — BAD THINGS HAPPEN. No matter how many times you take vitamins, turn off the iron, buckle your seatbelts or recycle, things run amuck and you can end up losing everything, except your soul. Oh no, Pluto will never kill you outright, but get ready for death on other fronts: perhaps the death of a career, a marriage, your stock portfolio.
The good news is that if you know Pluto is headed your way, you can do some prep work, like playing a subliminal tape that reassures you that complete, radical, chaotic change in your life is a good thing!
The bad news is that you’ll probably forget this as you are standing at the edge of the sinkhole that was once your life. But cheer up, sometimes, the only way to change is to be dragged through the mud.
So how do you really manage a Pluto occupation? Well, accept the reality that the only thing you can count on is change, oh yeah and that other stuff about death and taxes. In 10 years you will most likely consider what’s happening now to be for the best in the long run. This is definitely where the phrase “hindsight is 20/20” came from.
Pluto’s cycle is not as exact as the other planets — it can plow through your life anywhere from age 35 to age 60.
