What would Pluto buy?



by Sherene Schostak December 07, 2008 04:46 PM EST

Pluto in Capricorn demands that we reduce our karmic footprint. Can you use it? Do you really need it? If not, why the hell are ya buying it? Lord Pluto knows in this Capricorn day and age, that there's not a lot of extra to waste. The party is definitely over--even OJ's finally doing some time. This is the age of the big karmic closet clean out. How many of us have been rummaging through mounds of useless trash cluttering up our closets, basement, storage units (if you live in NYC)? Why are we holding on to this stuff? If we haven't used it in the last two years, the odds of its usefulness are nil. When getting an acupuncture treatment one should not be thinking about the several pairs of corduroy pants that really should have been recycled years ago but still rent space in her tiny closet (a little blog confession slip). With the endless talk of the recession, our values are definitely shifting. Many of my friends have already stated the obvious for this year: "Please, no gifts!--I know you love me." Many people are resorting to the good old days of homemade present like knitting, art, and other crafty stuff.

I happen to be a worshipper of The Church of Stop Shopping and Reverend Billy. If you saw the documentary on his crusade: "What would Jesus buy?" you know what a profound impact RB is having and how karmic the current corporate collapse truly is--Changelujah to Walmart finally receiving it's due!! If the trampled victim at Walmart isn't evidence enough that greed kills.... Pluto, the almighty change god has taken up official residence in the pragmatic and karmic constellation of Capricorn for the next fifteen years, so there's plenty more karmic retribution where that came from! If Pluto in Capricorn came with commandments, I suspect they wouldn't be too far from these:

The 10 Commandments Of Buylessness

As Revealed To Reverend Billy

THOU SHALT

Forgive people, yourself and everybody else. We all shop too much.

THOU SHALT

Know your Devil. Shoppers are only dancing in the land of ten thousand ads. Consumerism is the system. Corporations are the agents of the system.

THOU SHALT

Respect the micro-gesture. Magicalize the foreground. Fore-go the plastic bag and grab that bare banana - Amen!

THOU SHALT

Practice asking for Sweat-free, Fairly-traded and Locally Made products. That's the rude that's cool.

THOU SHALT

Buy less and give more. Giving is forceful, the beginning of fantastic new economies.

THOU SHALT

Buy local and think global. Love Your Neighbor (buy at independent shops) and Love The Earth (walk to, bike to, mass transit to - the things you need.)

THOU SHALT

Citizens can buy or not buy, produce or not produce. We can change to a sustainable personal economy. Then corporations and governments will change.

THOU SHALT

Envision the history of a product on a shelf. Workers and the earth made that thing. Resisting Consumerism is an act of imagination.

THOU SHALT

Complexify. Don't be so easy to figure out. Consumers tend to regularize.

Shopping at big boxes and chains makes us all the same. Viva la difference!

THOU SHALT

Respect heroes of the resistance. A small band of neighborhood-defenders who staved off a super mall with years of protests? Beautiful.

It's our turn now. CHANGE-A-LUJAH!
