You speak a great deal about integrating your shadow. There is a level of awareness and learning that strong Pluto types need to grasp if they want the “bad type of Pluto” stuff from continuing to happen. Basically the shadow has to be accounted for on some level.
I begin to wonder if it is more difficult to integrate your Pluto stuff if you are in a more repressed society? Does culture impact the type or amount of Pluto that is expressed and then also integrated?
Two examples: the Scandinavian societies/cultures seem to (broad generalizations here) be fairly private about sex, death etc. They are ‘repressed’ and Pluto types are not often welcome in their communities. Do they require Pluto types to become Pluto lite? Then Japan is also repressed and that seems to come out in their preference for sexualizing children. (see much of modern animaie)
Is that a cultural issue with Pluto? Is it more difficult for a Pluto person to integrate and come to terms with their Pluto if they live in one of these types of cultures?
Absolutely not. Pluto types could care less what is happening on the surface. They are concerned with what lies beneath and in many ways the less conscious people are the better. It’s loads of fun navigating in that kind of atmosphere. You pass each other and tip your hat. Sometimes snort at the people at the party above as you look up their dresses and see who is wearing underwear and who is advertising. 😉
Culture does not trump Pluto, it’s the other way around. Also, there is no such thing as “Pluto Lite”. “Pluto You’re Kidding Yourself”, maybe.
