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.
