Working on our karmic Balance during this month:

Throughout November, Earth dominates the sky and Pluto stands strong in 20 degrees Capricorn. Fire, Water and Air remain weak. Earth being strong accentuates the practical, and Pluto in this degree offers us a rare opportunity to learn to transcend, rather than repeat, the abuse of power, both on a personal level, but even more, as a species.

Our civilization has reached a crossroads where the road of the past has led to the fork of ignorance and enlightenment. This juncture, like many such historical crossroads, is being manipulated by orchestrators of illusion who are invested in keeping us ignorant because it keeps them in power. To cross into enlightenment is to awaken to the realization that we all belong to the same planet, all breathe the same air and drink the same water, we are all interdependent, regardless of skin color, form of worship, gender or economic level.

You have the power of life and death inside you. You have the power to rise above the ignorance of racial and religious strife. The great hell of our species is that we are capable of so much love, compassion and tolerance, yet we sink, again and again, throughout history, to war, bigotry and greed. The forces of ignorance in our time masquerade as political watchdogs claiming to keep our country safe from outside invasion by The Other ~ The Other being whatever group of people appears easiest to demonize, rather than understand. 

It has now become impractical to go along with things as they are. Nothing less than a revolution will put the world to rights. It takes a massive act of willpower to believe in something bright and beautiful emerging from the gathering forces of darkness and despair. When the brightness can't be found without you must find it within.

Pluto in 20 Capricorn, with Earth strong in the sky, ignites a channel to the great beacon of soul within you. Down below even the most embattled human contains a beacon of inner radiance. Ironically, this beacon rarely is lit until things darken with fear and confusion. Now, more than ever, we need your inner light.
 
It's my firm belief that there is so much more goodness in this world than bad, that humanity longs to break out of centuries of war, rape and racial strife. To be practical from now on we must believe in miracle. And if this miracle ever comes to pass, it will be because people like you and me stood up to the forces of intolerance and said, "No. No more. No more will I sit back and let ignorance run the show. I'm crossing over...."
