Gateway to the Moon

Happy New Year and Full Moon today at 11*Cancer at 9:23PM EST.  Cancer rules the moon.

This full moon, on the 1st day of the year of Two thousand and eighteen.

2 + 1 + 8 =11 or Doorways/Gateways, learning to walk with and into your own strengths, and matching that with others as a MASTER NUMBER 11.
This is working with your hands, day to day basis.

The 11th house is Aquarius.  It is a mental house as Aquarius is an air sign, ruled by Uranus.

It is also duality.  It is opening dimensions (daemonsions).

It will open whatever you have EARNED, not just what one wishes, since Saturn/EL has returned home to its own rulership of Capricorn, the 10th house.

He is at 1*, so this again, is beginnings.

After the transits we have all gone through now on the World Cross, and may I remind you here, that the cross itself, is 4 X 90* ANG-LE’s…or angels…angles.
EL, being Saturn or discipline, and becoming a disciple.  Or Disc IP EL/LE/LA.

Without learning discipline, one risks the world or the state, disciplining you.
Saturn is the Lord of the Rings, as I have said for over 2 decades now, Lord of Karma…the rings of Karma and return and he has returned home.  He is grandfather time.  He is the master builder and he rewards hard work.  If you have
worked hard, your rewards will come, wherever you have focused that work.  He also rules the day of rest, or Saturn’s Day, Saturday the Sabbath.

Capricorn is the Goat that climbs the mountain.

See how the goat climbs?  Precipice, or precipitously.

January is a ONE or 1 in the Gregorian calendar.  In astrology, it is the 10th house, which I prefer to use, since it brings the zero/0 with it which is magnification, lessons one brings into this life, or learns as one MASTERS the self.
So, we have 10/01/2018, which becomes: 1+ 1 + 2 + 1 + 8=13/4
We can see, learning to work on one’s own, discipline and combining or adding the 3 which is sensitive and creative.  The trine.  And this, when one adds one’s own work and discipline and now knowledgeable skillset becomes the 4 or Cancer, Home, builder and ARCH I Tect.
Now add to this the 11* of Cancer the MOON or Mother.

Part of Body: Greater curvature of stomach, and also the ribs.

Sabian Symbol: A Chinese woman nursing a baby with a message.

We again have the number 11 by degree.  Again, this is the mother and giving birth.

In the astrology chart for the FULL MOON IN CANCER ON THE 1ST DAY OF THE YEAR, WE SEE A BOW AND ARROW…the arrow is pointing dead-center at the moon/La Luna as she stands opposing her warming sun.

The ends of the bow or kite are at a Mars/Jupiter conjunction at 14* and 17* respectively and the other end at Neptune who is ALSO AT 11* OF PIsces, the village that Neptune/Poseidon rules.  This means we have a Grand Trine, with LaLuna at 11* Cancer, Mars at 14* of Scorpio and Mars/Ares connects Jupiter/Zeus into this picture through their conjunction and Jupiter at 17* Scorpio and Neptune at 11* PIsces…(PS, this is good news for Scorpio’s, Cancer’s, and PIsces, many of whom could use the break, especially Cancer’s who are trying to re-emerge from being nailed on the world cross, and Scorpio’s who are still shaking off the transit of Saturn/EL.  That nice water trine, can really cook up some vivid dreams, often becoming lucid.  Pay attention!  This is your subconscious telling you what you have submerged, that you may not be able to see so clearly through that water illusion.
On January 9th. we had a big ole stellium with Pluto/Hades, Venus/Aphrodite and
our ambassador, the sun all hanging together by conjunction at 19*.  That is powerful!!!  Talk about putting power and shining a light on what you love that may have been hidden!  Especially with Jupiter in Scorpio and this also played out as we predicted on the world stage with more accusations and the continued exposure of sex scandals.

Pulling back the arrow is our own Ambassador and LIGHT THROUGH THE DARKNESS, the sun at 11* of Capricorn/Pan the goat.

And the sun is conjunct Venus/Aphrodite at 9* of Capricorn.
So, this will take a creative and visionary approach, combined a lot of action and passion moving forward.

We are not yet at the spring and birth of greenery and new life again, but the light is now increasing.  Little by little we will come out of the thaw, readying ourselves to spring forward.

With the method that I have been using, this is also the 18th card of the Tarot,
Which is the moon…so we see the theme of the moon or Cancer the mother come back into play.  This is the year of the WOMAN or MOTHER.

What are you giving birth to this year? 

So many people have changed tracks, careers, jobs, partners, or transformed themselves.  Like Inanna, we have gone deep into our souls and submerged, and the deeper you have allowed yourself to go, the deeper you have been able to nourish the very roots of your being.  Upon your emergence, like the roots of a tree, you will be able to STEADILY IF NOT SLOWLY grow equally high, as the depths you have gone.

Coming up later this year, we have a ROYAL WEDDING, with Meghan Markle (read, MARK EL, SEE SATURN HERE?  SEE ‘THE MARK’ HERE?

Meghan, comes from Margarite…which is also a form of Mary, and it means, ‘PEARL’.

Her initials, are MM.  Do I have to disclose this importance?

Mirror/Water….again with the reflections.

We have the New Mon coming on January 16th. at 9:17 PM at 26* of Capricorn, this will be pivotal to put plans into action on that date.  Moon and Sun will be conjunct along with Venus/Aphrodite who is at 28* Capricorn and Pluto/Hades is bringing up the rear at 19* and these players are tapping into a square (cardinal mind you) to Uranus at 24* of Aries the Ram who again, want us to build with this square, though it is by nature, tense, they WANT YOU TO BRING YOUR UNIGUE INSIGHT AND GIFT TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
More on this later, along with the eclipse windows we are both exiting (well, sort of, since this one is a real doozy and actually connects to the big ole’ eclipse coming in 2024 that we have discussed previously.

For now, I wish you smooth sailing, get out your ArcAncient Stress Relief and of course, use Breathing Easy to not only help you if you are sick with this nasty flu going around, but preventively throughout the day, to keep you from getting sick!

Alchemy of the Soul The Arc of the Ancients, A-Limbic System

The Universe is a Garden of Secret Wonders.

“What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.” Mat 10:27

“If thou love to hear, thou shalt receive understanding: And if thou bow thine ear, thou shalt be wise.” ~Sirach 6:33

The Universe is a garden of secret wonders.  If you look, at any minute she will part her skirt, pull you into her rich soil and whisper secrets to help you find your way home.

At every turn there stand sentries, guardians of the gates and banshee’s to flood you into the tangled and odiferous bowels of despair and torment; lest you lose sight of the higher and noble calling, the skeleton key that will allow passage.

This is the majestic texture of our world, often in plain sight the grand design arouses the inner visionary in us who knows the way~ if that voice can rise above the din, the decadent and the superfluous sheath that is every bit as real as every layer beneath and below, above and beyond this dimension.  To negate one is to negate all, to negate the very self that yearns to be found, rescued but above all, heard and loved.  Love is a complicated thing and at the same time, like the universe she created, she is a marvel so simple one has only to sit inside her listening and ever present watchful embrace and let her carry you into bliss.

But here…here is where you may find yourself sleeping….and once again wake on  some precipitous and craggy cliff, with only the crisp air as company, while the mind gallops off in search of itself, and the heart of all that matters waits for its consort to catch up and surrender to her embrace once again.

I am a girl born on the seventh day of the seventh month, one of seven children and whose name begins with the seventh letter in the English alphabet.  My world has never been one as simple as it appeared to be to others.  In youth, I wondered why I must leave the richness of my forested mind, for the more superficial world everyone else wanted to play with.  All of it thrust upon you like a strange car wreck, or an obvious game I had to wake up in, but what would it take?  What special code or learning must I figure out to unlock the treasure map, and have everyone take off their masks, and congratulate me for unraveling the grand play too?

I tell you this in complete honesty.

For the longest time, I peered into eyes, wondered what part of me was not good enough, to be taken in to the grand illusion that everyone was playing.  Why did they act as if no one else knew the secret world that was hidden in the veins of the leaves that danced around us, mesmerizing with brocades of changing colours like swimming chameleons inhabiting the world?

When would everyone else talk about the ‘big people’ who are all lit up but whose appearance only silhouetted the back drop of the canvas my mind fell into?  Didn’t everyone entertain them and wasn’t it one of the most fulfilling camaraderie’s to experience those who stood tall as trees pour their genuine love in mutual praise as if every choir song wrote itself from this cause?


I thought surely that since I had such a tendency for mischief and finding my way into odd adventures that something then must be wrong with me.  Other people somehow weren’t thinking like me, but maybe I was just bad.  I was so bad, that no-one was allowed to share this secret that existed in every page I turned and followed on my adventurous sojourn through life.

Who would discuss the fairy fields I found as surely others did too?  Who else knew about the circle around the trees in the woods that shifted and sprinkled star dust?  Who else entertained the large beings of light that would appear after I prayed which opened the vaults of heaven?  The smiles on their faces and the glint in their eyes infusing me with love and contentment, letting me know that they enjoyed watching me entertain them with my singing and dancing? 

Surely once I got one more A, one more gold star, finished first in one more contest, then….then the game would open its doors and the cast members would reveal their true identity.

The sad thing is that one risks losing their freedoms just for mentioning the world that is real and more alive and vibrant than the march of superfluous reality that seems to have seduced the masses into plastic images and celluloid dreams, of contorting the deep forest into packages of exactness whose only hope is to replicate the new and improved image being craftily lighted and cascaded around their thirsty souls.  

What a webbing; all sticky and sweetly perfumed again with some replication of the natural bounty
that would adorn the temple of our beings with layers of truth; the kind that marches down the halls and lights up the senses with the purpose of being alive.

Why be here at all if the care isn’t taken to wonder?  To take the train on the dark night and wake in the valley of the gods who have been coaxing and guiding us all along?

This is my world; it is as it has always been an adventure of strange beliefs and hidden knowledge.  I feel like Moses in the desert, parting the red sea of life; opening the book one living word, one page at a time and learning the meaning I somehow already know.

There is magic afoot, it is under every stone and shimmering on the waters….it is dancing on our rooftops and howling in the wind.  It creaks down the halls and breaks down silence until it spills loudly into the room and stands between the moments of disbelief like a lighthouse forming from the mist and gloom.

I am yanked back into the strange reality like a naughty schoolgirl, made to play the game with scolding eyes and sometimes worse; while the mystery drips from my veins and disappears into the
cracks, waiting for me to rescue the life I was born to live and reveal.

This is my attempt to take you in and reveal what sorcerers have been burned alive for sharing, madmen have caught shards of along the way, and stories that hold power have hidden in their pages, if one learns how to listen ~ and has the eyes to see.

They stand all around us, sometime alone and more powerfully together; our guardians are rivers of wisdom who symbiotically breathe into us life and we exhale the breath they need.  We need them, they need us.  Excitedly I crept into the canopy of autumnal glory; fiery reds and umbers crisply painting the baby blue skies and the lemon sun drizzling down in shafts of warm surrender.  My heart beating in rhythm, my breath, dotting the air with invisible ink, as the forest shifted and turned, the secret panels opened. It is then, that Her voice grew louder.  The voice of the earth, called by many names, but I know her now, as Mary Magdalene.

Each cracking branch underfoot becomes a lever to the magic code of the great Cathedral.

Can you see?  Can you hear?  Maybe you forgot how to listen?  This book is written in my attempt to help you hear that voice, that voice that will help with your own…

The Lord of the Rings, is Coming Home

Saturn will enter Capricorn on Dec 19, 2017 at 11:48 pm…the last time EL entered Capricorn, was in February 13, 1988.  If you look back, you can see where you were, the lessons you learned and the lessons you learned during this last Saturn/EL’s cycle.

Think about this, Saturn has been roaming around the wheel, (the plane of the ecliptic) since Feb 6th back in 1991.

Picture an upward spiral, you may be in the same point with Saturn again, but you are now on a whole new level of awareness…lessons learned…or not?

Pluto, has been devastating and destroying all in its wake since his entry into Capricorn back in January of 2008 and of course we have been struggling through the Pluto/Uranus world squares, T Squares and Cardinal Crosses since too.

So, as ole’ Hades has been burning down all things Capricorn: Government, top of the mountain (and we literally see the flat cutting of mountain tops) all hierarchy, pyramid systems, etc. he makes way for Saturn/EL to finally return home, after Saturn has taken his sickle and cut down all the dross around the wheel.  Saturn returning home, will start the process of rebuilding now…old structures and beliefs have been burnt to the ground and even the ground itself has undergone radical transformation.

All of your beliefs have been challenged.  All of what you have built your life, your home upon and all that you believe you strived for to reach the ‘top’ of the
pinnacle, has been assaulted.

The challenge has come to your self-esteem, careers, government, rules and regulations….and now?  Saturn is coming home, there is a new sheriff in town.

The LAW is coming.

If you have lived in excess…he is coming to have you pay the piper.  This could be a difficult period, and in fact, it may well be a very difficult period for many as Saturn is not soft and cuddly, he is austerity, thrifty, cautious, calculated and calculating.  He is the master mason of the zodiac.

This Mercury retrograde has been a doozy too, see how he brought back old friends, had you review the past and what you put energy into?  Go over contracts and how you communicate?  Hermes is a trickster….but on December 21st at 8:51 PM at 13* of Sagittarius he will be fully stationed in forward motion again.  Remember, Hermes stationed RX at the very end of Sagittarius at 29*, just hours away from the full moon in Gemini (Mercury rules Gemini) at 11*.


Mercury the messenger ran ahead and took a peek at the mountain ahead and came back to inform Saturn/EL…now as the new moon approaches us on Dec 18th at 1:30 AM EST when the sun and moon will dance together at 26* of Sag, they are riding the Galactic Center (27* Sagittarius) while Saturn/EL is hovering over his home base now at 29* and this is SERIOUS MATTERS.

All of them, conducting that major energy coming through the gateway of the Galactic Center.

Have you hit a wall?  Do you see the light at the end of the tunnel or do you feel as though you cannot see where you are going?

These planetary energies are asking us deep and dark secrets, both our own, on the world stage and how we really feel about them, while looking at matters very seriously.

Venus/Aphrodite is also swimming in the ocean of Sagittarius that is ablaze (Sag is Fire) at 21* Sag, as we are being collectively and individually alchemized through the fire.  Remember, the fire of the Holy Spirit, burns but does not consume.

Which fire do YOU FEEL?

Well, get ready to put those irons that have been forged to work. 

Make plans and intentions during this new moon, but remember, that Mercury is still Retrograde until Dec 21st…it is THEN that you put actual plan and intention to work but remember also that he will still be in his shadow, digging up more uncomfortable truth for us all to deal with until he passes that 29* Sag marker on January 10, and he too is entering the domain of Capricorn….this will be a very serious (read, plan on working hard) winter and spring.

This is the energy to use to manifest, but you must work…diligently, disciplined and consistently on a solid foundation.

This is not the time for extravagance.

All kinds of new structures were being put into place and much of it was ‘unseen’, it will all start being rolled out, even as we return to these new plans to review and revise.

Saturn is also the ruler of TIME...and ofcourse, brings his sickle to cut you away and take you home to Pluto/Hades, Lord of Death.

We are also going into the darkest time of the year, the shortest day in the northern hemisphere…until we reach the solstice point on December 21st at 10:54 AM, when the LIGHT BEGINS TO RETURN.

Another big date for this month, is December 25…oh, not for the obvious reason you might think.  On this day, at 12:49 PM, Venus and Saturn begin their new synodic cycle together at the very beginning of Capricorn.  Capricorn is a natural square to Libra, which Venus rules, and Venus/Aphrodite likes nice things…luxury, beauty…all the things a Saturn/Goat’s climb to the top of the mountain can bring, but they are at the ‘beginning’ of their cycle…so they are not at the top yet, and this may bring discomfort for comfort loving Libra.   It is however, also squares that we build with, so it can be a good time to begin that climb and BUILD.  This is a nice trine to Taurus, who might start to feel like the good things they love (also ruled by Venus) are on their way…be careful.
The light will soon return, hang in there, but take a look at the discomfort that the dark may bring up.  Remember, in the dark night of the soul, remember, BRIGHT FLOWS THE RIVER OF GD.

A Happy Belly that Pines for YOU!

Over the years, we have been perfecting the blend that helped digestive issues, heartburn, etc.  We started with Re-Member, which originally was for Alzheimer’s and ADD, etc., to calm and focus the mind and it turned out to also be great to help the other heater/fire chakra, the belly.

We have since come up with the blend that has done nothing less than perform miracles on digestive issues, including, the story of someone that had a mass show up on their pancreas in X Ray, and using this new formula, dissolved it…yes, it is gone.

Of course, other things were done by the individual, eating healthy, etc to assist in creating this healing circuit, but the blend definitely went a long way to help.  So why?

What is that Blend?  HAPPY BELLY ©

The other day, I happened upon a youtube that talked about using ‘Turpentine’ to heal the liver.

Guess what?

What she recommended was the turpentine you have to special order and what is
the major chemical constituent?  Terpenes.

So, I thought about that.  There are many terpenes of various types (see following info) that make up essential oils.

Over the past 25 years, teaching about Frankincense, I often hear people say: ‘That smells like turpentine!’….well yes, it does have terpenes.

And many other healing chemical constituents, but we are focusing on just one aspect today.

First off, look at that word, ter-pene, or ter-pine.

What other essential oil has lots of terpenes?  Pine, major constituent, L-Pinene.

Of course, that comes from pine oil and both produce sap that are used.

So, we have the Pine Cone….which is a fractal.

It is also at the door of Vatican Court.  Yes, a great big old pine cone.  Why?

A fractal is self-replicating.

In mathematics a fractal is an abstract object used to describe and simulate naturally occurring objects. Artificially created fractals commonly exhibit similar patterns at increasingly small scales.[1] It is also known as expanding symmetry or evolving symmetry. If the replication is exactly the same at every scale, it is called a self-similar pattern. An example of this is the Menger sponge.[2] Fractals can also be nearly the same at different levels. This latter pattern is illustrated in small magnifications of the Mandelbrot set] Fractals also include the idea of a detailed pattern that repeats itself

Now to this, let us add the ‘PINE-AL’ GLAND.  Remember, EL or AL, is Gd of the Old Testament and is either the root or suffix to many words, like EL-e-ment or AL-Chem-y.  El Shaddai, or Ang-EL.  EL-ect, etc.

The pineal gland is a small, pinecone shaped gland of the endocrine system. A structure of the diencephalon of the brain, the pineal gland produces the hormone melatonin. Melatonin influences sexual development and sleep-wake cycles. The pineal gland is composed of cells called pinealocytes and cells of the nervous system called glial cells. The pineal gland connects the endocrine system with the nervous system in that it converts nerve signals from the sympathetic system of

the peripheral nervous system into hormone signals.

Over time, calcium deposits build-up in the pineal and its accumulation can lead to calcification in the elderly.

Terpenes (/ˈtɜːrpiːn/) are a large and diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants, particularly conifers,[1] and by some insects such as termites or swallowtail butterflies, which emit terpenes from their osmeteria. They often have a strong odor and may protect the plants that produce them by deterring herbivores and by attracting predators and parasites of herbivores.[2][3] The difference between terpenes and terpenoids is that terpenes are hydrocarbons, whereas terpenoids contain additional functional groups.

They are the major components of resin, and of turpentine produced from resin. The name "terpene" is derived from the word "turpentine". In addition to their roles as end-products in many organisms, terpenes are major biosynthetic building blocks within nearly every living creature. Steroids, for example, are derivatives of the triterpene squalene.

When terpenes are modified chemically, such as by oxidation or rearrangement of the carbon skeleton, the resulting compounds are generally referred to as terpenoids. Some authors will use the term terpene to include all terpenoids. Terpenoids are also known as isoprenoids.

Terpenes and terpenoids are the primary constituents of the essential oils of many types of medicinal plants and flowers. Essential oils are used widely as fragrances in perfumery, and in medicine and alternative medicines such as aromatherapy. Synthetic variations and derivatives of natural terpenes and terpenoids also greatly expand the variety of aromas used in perfumery and flavors used in food additives. Vitamin A is a terpenoid.

Higher amounts of terpenes are released by trees in warmer weather, acting as a natural form of cloud seeding. The clouds reflect sunlight, allowing the forest to regulate its temperature.[4] The aroma and flavor of hops comes, in part, from sesquiterpenes (mainly alpha-humulene and beta-caryophyllene), which affect beer quality.[5] Terpenes are also major constituents of Cannabis sativa plants, which contain at least 120 identified compounds.[6]

So, you see how complex this becomes?  This is just one aspect of over 20 oils, which the Happy Belly, mixed to perfection provides.  For all stomach ailments, esophageal, Crohn's, Acid Reflux, heartburn, etc.

There is so much more to add to this, but we will save that for another day, when we go deeper into what chemical constituents are and give further explanations.

Terpenes are derived biosynthetically from units of isoprene, which has the molecular formula C5H8. The basic molecular formula of terpenes are multiples of that, (C5H8)n where n is the number of linked isoprene units. This is called the biogenetic isoprene rule or the C5 rule. In 1953, the Croatian chemist Leopold Ružička discovered that the isoprene units may be linked together "head to tail" to form linear chains or they may be arranged to form rings.[7] One can consider the isoprene unit as one of nature's common building blocks.

Isoprene itself does not undergo the building process, but rather activated forms, isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP or also isopentenyl diphosphate) and dimethylallyl pyrophosphate (DMAPP or also dimethylallyl diphosphate), are the components in the biosynthetic pathway. IPP is formed from acetyl-CoA via the intermediacy of mevalonic acid in the HMG-CoA reductase pathway. An alternative, totally unrelated biosynthesis pathway of IPP is known in some bacterial groups and the plastids of plants, the so-called MEP(2-Methyl-D-erythritol-4-phosphate)-pathway, which is initiated from C5-sugars. In both pathways, IPP is isomerized to DMAPP by the enzyme isopentenyl pyrophosphate isomerase.

Isopentenyl pyrophosphate

Dimethylallyl pyrophosphate

As chains of isoprene units are built up, the resulting terpenes are classified sequentially by size as hemiterpenes, monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, diterpenes, sesterterpenes, triterpenes, and tetraterpenes. Essentially, they are all synthesized by terpene synthase.

Second- or third-instar caterpillars of Papilio glaucus emit terpenes from their osmeterium.

Terpenes may be classified by the number of isoprene units in the molecule; a prefix in the name indicates the number of terpene units needed to assemble the molecule.

Hemiterpenes consist of a single isoprene unit. Isoprene itself is considered the only hemiterpene, but oxygen-containing derivatives such as prenol and isovaleric acid are hemiterpenoids.

Monoterpenes consist of two isoprene units and have the molecular formula C10H16. Examples of monoterpenes and monoterpenoids include geraniol, terpineol (present in lilacs), limonene (present in citrus fruits), myrcene (present in hops), linalool (present in lavender) or pinene (present in pine trees).[8] Iridoids derive from monoterpenes.

Sesquiterpenes consist of three isoprene units and have the molecular formula C15H24. Examples of sesquiterpenes and sesquiterpenoids include humulene, farnesenes, farnesol. (The sesqui- prefix means one and a half.)

Diterpenes are composed of four isoprene units and have the molecular formula C20H32. They derive from geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate. Examples of diterpenes and diterpenoids are cafestol, kahweol, cembrene and taxadiene (precursor of taxol). Diterpenes also form the basis for biologically important compounds such as retinol, retinal, and phytol.

Sesterterpenes, terpenes having 25 carbons and five isoprene units, are rare relative to the other sizes. (The sester- prefix means half to three, i.e. two and a half.) An example of a sesterterpenoid is geranylfarnesol.

Triterpenes consist of six isoprene units and have the molecular formula C30H48. The linear triterpene squalene, the major constituent of shark liver oil, is derived from the reductive coupling of two molecules of farnesyl pyrophosphate. Squalene is then processed biosynthetically to generate either lanosterol or cycloartenol, the structural precursors to all the steroids.

Sesquarterpenes are composed of seven isoprene units and have the molecular formula C35H56. Sesquarterpenes are typically microbial in their origin. Examples of sesquarterpenoids are ferrugicadiol and tetraprenylcurcumene.

Tetraterpenes contain eight isoprene units and have the molecular formula C40H64. Biologically important tetraterpenoids include the acyclic lycopene, the monocyclic gamma-carotene, and the bicyclic alpha- and beta-carotenes.

Polyterpenes consist of long chains of many isoprene units. Natural rubber consists of polyisoprene in which the double bonds are cis. Some plants produce a polyisoprene with trans double bonds, known as gutta-percha.

Norisoprenoids, such as the C13-norisoprenoids 3-oxo-α-ionol present in Muscat of Alexandria leaves and 7,8-dihydroionone derivatives, such as megastigmane-3,9-diol and 3-oxo-7,8-dihydro-α-ionol found in Shiraz leaves (both grapes in the species Vitis vinifera)[9] or wine[10][11] (responsible for some of the spice notes in Chardonnay), can be produced by fungal peroxidases[12] or glycosidases.[13]


Terpenes have properties as chemicals in food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.[14][15] Chemical synthesis of terpenes can be problematic because of their complex structure, and plants produce small amounts of terpenes, making it difficult, time-consuming and expensive to extract them directly from plants. The genomes of 17 plant species contain genes that encode terpenoid synthase enzymes imparting terpenes with their basic structure, and cytochrome P450s that modify this basic structure.[16]

Research into terpenes has found that many of them possess qualities that make them useful active ingredients as part of natural agricultural pesticides.[17] Terpenes are used by termites of the Nasutitermitinae family to ward off predatory insects, through the use of a specialized mechanism called a fontanellar gun.[18]

Terpene, any of a class of hydrocarbons occurring widely in plants and animals and empirically regarded as built up from isoprene, a hydrocarbon consisting of five carbon atoms attached to eight hydrogen atoms (C5H8). The term is often extended to the terpenoids, which are oxygenated derivatives of these hydrocarbons.

Isopentenyl pyrophosphate    

Dimethylallyl pyrophosphate

Biological formation of the terpenes occurs by the combination of two molecules of acetic acid to give mevalonic acid (C6H12O4) and conversion of the latter to isopentenyl pyrophosphate, which contains the five-carbon isoprene skeleton. Further transformations of the isopentenyl compound yield the true terpenes and the terpenoids.

The true terpenes are usually grouped according to the number of isoprene (C5H8) units in the molecule: monoterpenes (C10H16) contain two such units; sesquiterpenes (C15H24), three; diterpenes (C20H32), four; triterpenes (C30H48), six; and tetraterpenes (C40H64), eight. Rubber and gutta-percha are polyterpenes in which 1,000–5,000 isoprene units are joined in a long chain. Monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and diterpenes are abundant in the essential oils of plants: turpentine contains several monoterpenes, and the rosin acids are diterpenes. Vitamin A is another important diterpene. The triterpene squalene, obtainable from shark-liver oil, may be converted to cholesterol and many other steroids. The carotenoid pigments are the best known tetraterpenes.

Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants, particularly conifers, though also by some insects such as termites or swallowtail butterflies, which emit terpenes from their osmeteria. They are often strong-smelling. They may protect the plants that produce them by deterring herbivores and by attracting predators and parasites of herbivores.

Essential oil, highly volatile substance isolated by a physical process from an odoriferous plant of a single botanical species. The oil bears the name of the plant from which it is derived; for example, rose oil or peppermint oil. Such oils were called essential because they were thought to represent the very essence of odour and flavour.

The first records of essential oils come from ancient India, Persia, and Egypt; and both Greece and Rome conducted extensive trade in odoriferous oils and ointments with the countries of the Orient. Most probably these products were extracts prepared by placing flowers, roots, and leaves in fatty oils. In most ancient cultures, odorous plants or their resinous products were used directly. Only with the coming of the golden age of Arab culture was a technique developed for the distillation of essential oils. The Arabs were the first to distill ethyl alcohol from fermented sugar, thus providing a new solvent for the extraction of essential oils in place of the fatty oils that had probably been used for several millennia.

The knowledge of distillation spread to Europe during the Middle Ages, and isolation of essential oils by distillation was described during the 11th to 13th centuries. These distilled products became a specialty of the European medieval pharmacies, and by about 1500 the following products had been introduced: oils of cedarwood, calamus, costus, rose, rosemary, spike, incense, turpentine, sage, cinnamon, benzoin, and myrrh. The alchemical theories of the Swiss physician and alchemist Paracelsus played a role in stimulating physicians and pharmacists to seek essential oils from aromatic leaves, woods, and roots.

In some oils one or only a few components predominate: thus oil of wintergreen contains about 98 percent of methyl salicylate; orange oil, about 90 percent of d-limonene; bois de rose, 90 percent of linalool; and cassia, up to 95 percent of cinnamaldehyde. In most oils there is a mixture of anywhere from a few dozen to several hundred individual compounds. Trace components are very important, since they give the oil a characteristic and natural odour.

The Tidal Waters Reaching Across the Great Divide

Starting with the Total Solar Eclipse, the first that was only visible in the US on August 21, 2017.

Opening the ‘Gateway’ into the onslaught upon the US that is to come, and we have the second band from the Total Eclipse that will come in 2024, forming this Confederate Flag, and of course, an upside down cross.

We have Hurricane Harvey, a name meaning: Battle worthy or carnage worthy, Soldier

Hurricane Harvey was an extremely destructive Atlantic hurricane which became the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005

 Harvey developed from a tropical wave to the east of the Lesser Antilles, reaching tropical storm status on August 17. The storm crossed through the Windward Islands on the following day, passing just south of Barbados and later near Saint Vincent.

Harvey made landfall in Hurricane Harvey made landfall Friday night between Port Aransas and Port O'Connor, Texas (then Corpus Christi) Texas in the US on August 25, 2017.

We then had Major Hurricane’s that followed, Irma, Jose and Maria…all devastating the US while fires raged on the West Coast.  Harvey is the harbinger that began it all.  This was the beginning of rising tides and so is the recent Harvey Weinstein floodgates.

In between this, another famous person dies, On September 27, 2017 Hugh Hefner died.  That is the end of the Playboy era. The ugly effects of the Patriarchy and it’s expansion and obliteration of the Divine Feminine, and all things that nurture and consider life in balance, is blaring across our screens as it becomes such a large and insatiable monster you can no longer dismiss the sickness.  The end of the subjugation and objectification of all that is feminine, the earth, her seeds and fruits, minerals and resources, gardens and trees, and Her children, that depend on clean and holy water, air and earth. 

What follows?


On Oct. 5, 2017 New York Times investigation by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey revealed sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein dating back to 1990.

Weinstein is a German-language surname meaning wine stone, referring to the crystals of potassium bitartrate resulting from the process of fermenting grape juice.

These are the illustrations on the world stage of the evidence of the Grapes of Wrath that has crisscrossed these shores.
We truly have always been the continent with the Great Divide. 
On Monday, October 30, 2017, we had the arrests of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates have gotten the most headlines thus far, but the plea deal and confession of George Papadopoulos started months ago
Papadopoulos Name Meaning
Greek: patronymic meaning ‘son of the priest’, from papas ‘priest’ + the patronymic ending -poulos, an ending that occurs mainly in the Peloponnese, derived from Latin pullus ‘nestling’, ‘chick’. Greek Orthodox priests, unlike their Roman Catholic counterparts, were allowed to marry and have children.

So we see that the end of this era is ‘flooding the airwaves’ to show us that we are making small cracks into this deadly illusion that is choking the very life out of us.

This comes against the Huge Monopolies that are becoming even stronger and merging into larger monsters, you can read about that here:
