Pluto -- God of the Underworld
Pluto, with its bizarre, irregular orbit, is the last of the discovered planets in this Solar System which the basic metaphorical language of astrology contains. Occasionally it is the outermost of the known planets, although during part of its journey around the Sun it moves inside the orbit of Neptune.
There is even some debate about whether it qualifies as a bona fide planet. I say it is the final one of the known planets ... because there are two others which have been mathematically proven to exist - one inside the orbit of Mercury and one beyond the boundary of Pluto. So we know they're there. But they haven't officially been sighted yet.
Named for the mythological god of the afterlife, the realm of the dead, the King of the Underworld, Pluto is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's most fundamentally creative self. Phrased that way, it sounds very charming and exciting. In reality, it almost never is. True to the home territory of its symbolic namesake, the environment in which Pluto energy exists and does its work can be pure Hell. Often, there just is no other way to describe it.
