Pluto – (Definition from Larousse Encyclopedia of Astrology, pages 295-296)The attributes of the modern planets (Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto) have been deduced by careful observation, over a period of time, of cultural trends that appeared around the time of their discovery. Some of the most important events of the 1930’s (when it is discovered) were the rise of Nazism and fascism inEurope; the discovery of atomic energy; the laboratory perfection of television equipment and the rise of mass media; the growing public acceptance of psychoanalysis; and the sudden prevalence of cancer. Astrologers are beginning to associate Pluto with a subtle but (extremely) powerful underground force that lies dormant within various collective systems and bursts forth volcanically at a given moment; the power of the masses and the collective unconscious; the invisible power of the atom; the power of the unconscious, forcing to the surface repressed memories locked within the cells; the dark, proliferating force of cancer that works insidiously within the body until it is diagnosed.
