Pluto’s process and evolution

The Plutonian force of total consciousness. It erupts from the dark depths of the unconscious. How do we master it? Humanity is still quite new to contemplating it. We tend to externalize it a lot in the form of banks, corporations, and other external ways of gathering wealth and power.


Birth tends to be traumatic. The power of Pluto’s energy is mostly associated after puberty with sexual attraction and orgasm. Later we may come to understand it as a mechanism of building unity with another in the (unconscious) search for loss of ego (unity). The French phrase La petite mort used sometimes refers to orgasm as “the little death.” The ego understands the transformative nature of these energies and tries to manage, manipulate, or control them. We tend to traumatize ourselves a bit from fear and anticipation during those unavoidable life transformation moments. Death tends to be anticipated in such a way, especially if the degradation of body and/or mind is contemplated as a loss of one’s power.

The keys to dealing with powerful Plutonian energies are:

1. to practice letting go of this grasping at control of what is outside us, behind us, or ahead of us in the space-time continuum;

2. to be creative and unleash this power from the unconscious in ways that are healing and unifying of others.

We are all new to this in human evolution. I have no secrets to share. I have not mastery of this. This is just my perception and my experience.
