Pluto’s Riches

In Greek mythology, Hades is the ruler of the Underworld.  When a person died, it was said their soul descended into and would reside in the Underworld.  Thus, the Underworld is a realm of soul (psyche) and a realm of depth, well-suited for archetypal exploration.  The Romans named the god of the Underworld Pluto, which means “riches.”  As ancient coins were minted from precious metals under the ground, Pluto’s riches, gems, and jewels can be mined from the materials found in the depths of the psyche.  This talk explores the symbolism and imagery of Pluto, with chart examples woven throughout.

Shawn Nygaard  is an archetypal astrologer from Minneapolis, MN, where he does readings and teaches classes and webinars. He began as a Tutor at MISPA (Mercury Internet School for Psychological Astrology) in the autumn of 2017, and has spoken at the 2015 conference of the Astrological Association of Great Britain and the 2017 NCGR conference in Baltimore. He has presented at the London School of Astrology, Nightlight Astrology, MISPA, San Francisco Astrological Society, and the Minnesota Jung Association. He is a graduate of the CMED Institute, where he studied archetypes with Caroline Myss.
