To control is to be controlled. So then, letting go of attachment, is a Plutonian way of releasing control (grasp) in order to attain absolution, through means of individual Willpower. Scorpio is able to perform spiritual surgery upon oneself, just as much it can dissect everything else. The This is why the Plutonian mastery has to do with merging and emerging.
