A Sagittarius New Moon Arc's Arcross The Dark Night of Winter


On Thursday at 2:20 AM December 7th ,  a hot button of pulsating energy might be finding its way into expression as the New Moon with her solar paramour our sun now at 15* Sagittarius and making a potent square to Mars at 13* PIsces. A newly stationing direct Mercury/Hermes at 27* Scorpio, pulls back his slingshot.  This will arc into the future as the moon waxes into fullness on Dec 22nd.  In fiery Sag, they excite each other, especially since Jupiter/Zeus is now in his lordship at 6* Sagittarius. 
Infusing into this excitement is a 28* Uranus Retrograde in Aries still opposing Venus at 2*Scorpio.  The good news?  We will start to experience less mechanical and technical snafus.  I did say less…with Mars in the square and this opposition still happening with Uranus and Venus, the fiery waters are distilling a deeper essence in all of us.

The infamous Pluto transit through Capricorn, while Saturn/EL, who is also transiting through his own lordship territory of Capricorn, is demanding order out of the chaos Pluto is churning up along with our other astrological spheres.
As Pluto/Hades churns up the detritus and burns off anything that does not support the deeper essence of our being, Saturn is coming along to rebuild.
This is why it is imperative that you know where these two are doing their dance in your own ‘medicine wheel’.
Capricorn is also known as ‘PAN’.  From this we derive the word, pandemonium.  Capricorn in part rules the establishment, it is our government.  All over the planet we see people rising up and change taking place.  In the US in particular, Pluto/Hades also happens to be on his way home to his natal position in the US chart.  https://arcoftheancients.blogspot.com/2013/02/pluto-in-capricorn-evolution-of-world.html

Pluto rules the mob, the mob boss or a mob of people.  Gathered into the very top of the wealthy, it can become a Plutocracy.  Someone who is at the very top of this chain, is called a Plutocrat. Its energy is as potent as the plutonium that fuels atomic fission.  It is the dark underbelly where the wealth of the world is exhumed and transferred.  The secrets buried along with wealthy purchases are being revealed.  As Pluto and Saturn make their way to their first contact in January of 2020, a wide swath of destruction much like the major earth changes we see on the news, whether it is the fires in California or the tornado’s through the Midwest, our lives may feel much the same way.

The more we try to cling to what the universe is pulling us away from, the more we will suffer.  What will be left, is the ‘rock to build your house upon’.  First, comes the necessary destruction and there are no two ways around that.
Remember, the nodes of the moon have moved into the Cardinal Cross, having backed into Cancer with the head of the dragon and that puts the tail in Capricorn now, yes while Pluto and Saturn are also clear-cutting the top of the mountain.  This is the beginning of their 18 month transit, before they enter the Gemini/Sagittarius axis.  So as we stated in our last blog, that means Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn...you are really getting the shake up!  All that action from Pluto and then Saturn resetting the pins, preparing for the nodes to come along and activate your MISSION.
We shared with you that the markets were going to start to see ups and downs and that ultimately markets don’t like this kind of uncertainty when Uranus first ingressed into Taurus.  Uranus has retrograded back into Aries to finish up some business there, revising plans especially regarding technological breakthrough's.
We also hoped that we might make it through March, when Uranus reenters Taurus again and hopefully even as long as until the end of next year.  But after that, it is highly unlikely we will not have gone through some sort of major upheaval.  It very well may be a new financial system or printing money in a different way for the United States, and for many other countries that will have to rise and fall and restructure their framework.
We certainly know that computers are taking more and more jobs and that is going to continue into our future.  This could be a transfer of wealth through a new currency system, such as Bitcoin, or chip implants.  We will see a lot of 5G related technological systems rolled out.
This particular new moon will spin us into the coming eclipses in January and the evolutionary changes coming with them.
I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have an active prayer/meditative life even with essential oils.
However, we did create the ‘Stress X-tra’ for just these kinds of times.
It would go without saying that the Breathing Easy is a must to keep us from these ever craftier viruses.  When you have experienced healing pneumonia and bronchitis several times now, you learn just why Breathing Easy is so valuable and special.

We also need a good night’s sleep.  With the new technology, we had a client who had a proven deeper night’s sleep by several hours, using Sleep Angel!
She overslept!  This is a woman who is just starting her own business, so you can imagine how busy her mind is right now! 
Speaking of which, do you see how this time is also the perfect gestation for bringing dreams into reality?  To this we will add the potency of Neptune/Aphrodite also hanging out with Mars at 13* PIsces.

We always use a square to build with, so even though we may go through a destructive process, with Pluto searching for the very depth of our souls and Mercury/Hermes the messenger being necessary as a guide to get back across the Crossroads of Hermes’s Scorpio Lair.  Busy as he is with Persephone now, we do know many ideas are being hatched regarding the earth’s treasures.
Be careful of Neptune’s hooks, you don’t want to take something in, hook, line and sinker.  We like her gift in music and art, but she will teach you a lesson you can pay with your life with, because she can also pull you down into the depths of addictions of all kinds.  So, we must be careful, steady as she goes. 


“We plant the seeds because the seeds need to be planted, in other words, and we need to be the ones planting them. The fruit of our labor may surprise us, and it often will not be what we thought we were hoping for. The struggle for justice, I’m learning, yields too little justice, and never soon enough. That is no reason to stop fighting. Formed in the fires of struggle is love, the kind of love that will lay down its life for friends, and for enemies as well. Love — fierce love, handcuffed love, suffering love — is what animates our sacred tradition. We keep on digging rows and planting seeds, trusting they will yield their fruit in their season. But if not, getting our hands in the dirt together will be fruit enough.”~ Thomas Berrigan

The Full Moon in Gemini Multi-Tasking in Several Dimensions At Once


The moon waxes into fullness, just after midnight tonight, on November 23 at 12:39 A.M. EST.  She will be at 0* Gemini/Twins/Mercury Ruled, opposing her paramour, our little sun who has now entered Sagittarius, and is also at 0*.  This is also known as the Beaver Moon.  Beavers are very industrious, as are many of us right now, trying to get a lot accomplished, in the hustle of bustle of the season and cleaning and preparing for our winter blanket.

Things are certainly, snap, crackle and popping in the air and the earth, which is roiling with a lot of earthquake activity right now.

In Gemini, Luna is activating the earthly mind and mundane things, culminating in this full moon, while the solar guide is activating our higher purpose, thoughts of career, education, foreigner’s and travel.

Jupiter now happily ruling in his own sign of Sagittarius, is hanging right with the sun, magnifying that solar energy/power while Mercury RX at 10* is coming back to join them, and bringing back old memories and thoughts of friends from the past too.  In fact, it is during these times, we run into old friends, and of course, may 
have some snafu’s with our electrical devices or cars, especially since Uranus is also RX at 29* in Aries and opposing a newly direct Venus/Aphrodite, now at 3* of Scorpio.  (She can be vicious and vengeful here, so be careful.)
This can ask you, are you sure about this love relationship?  Remember, in Aries, Uranus can be rash and even more sudden than he usually is, so try and refrain from rash judgments, comments or actions, which you may very well regret later.  Venus in Scorpio can magnify this too.



Venus may have either brought back some lovin’ to your relationship, or dug up the old wounds that can still smart a bit, and Mercury RX on her heels can make us think of previous loves, and particularly affairs.  In Sagittarius, he might make us think about foreign lovers and certainly is bringing up the whole topic of Immigration and the spotlight on the Caravan coming up from The Honduras, fleeing dire situations looking for the American Dream.

We will end up returning some of our purchases and gifts, and definitely be ‘re-gifting’ if the exchange falls before Mercury is Direct on December 7TH, where he has travelled back to 27* Scorpio, in search of the truth.

Neptune is also in her rulership of PIsces at 13* PIsces, and squaring Mercury who is at 10* Sagittarius, adding to the ILLUSION that is so hard to see through.  Think of the term, FAKE NEWS.

The waters are murky indeed, so anchor yourself.  (This is where, ArcAncient’s,

Sleep Angel © comes in handy, or Stress Xtra.
While Saturn/EL is loving his own world at 7* Capricorn the goat, we have a lot of heavenly spheres/beings all wanting to be in charge, at least in their own domain.  This is also a good thing to keep in mind for us, to stay in our own lane, and be the best we can be, at what we are good at, not what or who we are not.
So, we have grounding rods during these transits, including the newly shifted Head and Tale of the Dragon, who has made the change from the Aquarius/Leo axis where they have been eating and releasing the past, and have the yang, outgoing energy.  Now, they are in Cancer/Capricorn, so that head is digesting where she wants to go, and considering the energy of the moon/mother and causing us to release the past of Capricorn…so this is a NEW ENERGY TO WHAT WE VALUE AND WHAT WE WANT TO SEE ON THE WORLD STAGE, POWER-WISE.  Yes, this activates the overly charged and potent Cardinal Cross: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

 

We might find it easier to release the ‘illusions’ of what success mean to us, and stop that need to climb the ladder to the very top, having gratitude to what we have NOW.
So, curl up with a good book, good friend and nurture yourselves, make that comfort food and play some games by the hearth.  This new 18 month period should feel more comfortable internally, than the past 18 months.



Happy Holy Days!  The night increases, Pluto/Hades is happy in his lair with his consort (by force) Persephone.  Make yourselves comfortable and hang out in bed a little longer…great time to do some dream work.  Wake up and write down the vivid images you experienced through the night.


A REMINDER THAT I WILL BE TEACHING A 4 HOUR CLASS ON December 29TH AT THE REIKI ROOM IN LAKEWOOD.  Will go over the stars that are forming a very powerful aspect pattern in the coming year and also into 2020, that period will be more powerful than anything we have experienced so far.  I will look at your own personal chart too, for a small snapshot on how it will affect you and what you can do to prepare.  It is BYOB, we will have some snacks.  We will laugh and learn, some deep, secrets.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Here is the short list of predictions I have made that have come to pass:
Predictions made by, Gloria O’Neil-Savage ‘Sangreal’.

1.    Death of Dianne Murray (Witness, Denise Z.)
2.    Parent’s house being robbed, and the girl who was in charge of robbing the house.  (Told my little sister it was robbed, nothing was missing, but I know, because ‘I felt it’ when I came home from school to get ready for work.  I was interrogated, by the police, because they wanted to know, how I knew, if I was not in on it.)
a.    Later in the week, while at my school locker, my friend was also at hers next to mine, when a friend of hers came up and said: “Hi, Gloria”…in that moment, a voice inside started to say: “She robbed your house”.  I tried to dismiss it, but it only grew louder and louder, so loud, that by the time I sat down in study hall, I was worried, everyone else could hear it coming out of my body.  I went down to the office to find out what class, Tammy was in, my friend, and Debby Somerville was behind the desk.  I asked her if she could tell me what class Tammy was in, and she said: “Yes, I can find that out for you, Gloria”.  She went to the card files and pulled out a card that said she was in Biology class.  I went up to the class, the teacher was out of the room.  I peeked in and saw Tammy.  I asked Tammy if she could come out so I could talk to her for a minute.
I was a pretty small person back then, probably not even 100lbs, and pretty short.  Tammy, was much bigger, taller.  But, when she came out, I said: “You robbed my house!”…She recoiled, looked like a trapped animal in her eyes.  She said: “No I didn’t, why would you say that?”…I repeated it, my rage growing, “You robbed my house!” and with that, I was banging her into the lockers, raging at her about robbing my house, crying the entire time, I was white-hot mad!  Of course, that brought the kids out to the halls, and they started exclaiming, O’Neil is beating up Stewart!  Then the doors down the halls started swinging open, and teachers came down and brought us down to the office.  I was told the police were handling it and I needed to let them do their job, it was not my job.  I was given detentions.  It came out days later, that she was the one who robbed my house with the rest of the kids, and it was HER idea.  I also found out, they knew at the time I was sitting in that office, and yet, I was given detentions.
3.    Transformation of street, new buildings built, before they were built.
a.    Calling friend Loraine, seeing her in ‘new’ building with glass front and glass on the front of building across the street, in RR.  Einstein Bagels opened up with glass front, two glass fronts appeared, one of the front of Heinens and on front of other coffee shop in Rocky River.
4.    Building on Sloane and Detroit, where I saw a door on the side of the building a coffee shop inside with tables outside.  (All came true)
Earthquakes:
5.    Haiti, Tuesday, 12 January 2010, Chile, February 27, 2010; and Fukushima Earthquakes, ( could only get a few days close to the Chile and Haiti quakes, but was spot on (by actual Date: Mar 11, 2011) for Fukushima.  (All of those were posted on FB as predictions, I was harassed by some people, saying I was fear-mongering, earthquakes happen all the time!)  Then they all happened.  Major earthquakes.
6.    Crash of 2008, (by date, October, 2008) successfully negotiated out of the last 2 years of my lease, to close my center, ONE MONTH BEFORE IT HAPPENED.  (Witness, actual Carol Zung, Dag, Nanda, all at Dagmar’s table, while I nervously told them about what I saw happening, (Senate doors closed and the senators, all being forced to sign a deal for bail-outs) I wrote an 8 page paper on how we could avoid the mortgage crash and brought it to my congressman in April of that year, but they rejected it, since ‘the economy is doing great!’; legal records leases, and Mickey, the landlord.
7.    911 (dreamt it) then wrote a letter to President Bush, warning him, and that he should not invade Iraq, because we would get bogged down there for decades, and they would not so easily extract the oil because of constant saboteurs, and that there would be a major hurricane to hit New Orleans, bringing too much water and flooding the levy’s.  All written in letter that was dated BEFORE IT HAPPENED: Witness: Carol Z.
8.    Donald Trump, winning the EL-ection, the day he through his hat in the ring.  I KNEW THE MOMENT HE SAID HE WAS RUNNING HE WOULD WIN and told everyone, Hillary WOULD NOT WIN.  A lot of ‘psychic’s’ and astrologers I know personally, said Hillary would win, after the fact, claiming they knew too. 
9.    HURRICANE TO HIT PUERTO RICO, told friends not to go during that time.  Witness: Tina M.
10. Personal predictions, far too numerous to mention.

Scorpio New Moon, Rising From the Depths of Hades




On November 7, 2018 at 11:01AM we birth a new cycle with the New moon in Scorpio at 15* of Scorpio.  Scorpio is ruled by Pluto/Hades, Lord of the underworld with his trusty best friend, Cerberus guarding the gates.  Cerberus will wag his tail and welcome you like a long lost friend.  He entices you into the underworld lair and as you go deeper and deeper into the depths of the abyss, and the light grows dimmer and dimmer, you may try to quickly crawl back up and out.  Only to find that he is now growling and menacing, blocking your exit.  There is no way to go but down.

So, the descent continues just like Inanna or Isis.  Speaking of Isis, Venus/Aphrodite went retrograde on October 6th while she was at 10* of Scorpio.  In astrology, this period is sometimes referred to as the Descent of Inanna.  Now, when Inanna descends, she goes looking for her paramour, Ishtar who has been cut into pieces.  (7 or 14 depending on which myth we are talking about).
In public view on the world stage, we saw first the disappearance of Adnan Khashoggi, the Saudi Arabian businessman and arms dealer at the Turkish Embassy.  The next thing we hear, is that there is an audio tape of him being ‘cut into pieces’.  So once again, As Above, So Below, everything is being televised if you have the eyes to see.

While Venus is retrograde, she may put a crimp on your money streams, or cost you money through things that all of a sudden need to be repaired, because she stands in opposition to Uranus at 29*, also retrograde having recently re-entered Aries.  Uranus rules the unexpected, out of the blue stuff and Aries is a Cardinal sign that likes to get things started and all fired up.  Venus is what we love or possess.  It is your MONEY/INCOME.  Now, while it can be a crimp in the hose of income/money, it also can BRING BACK THAT WHICH WAS DUE TO YOU, THAT YOU DIDN’T GET ON HER WAY THROUGH THE FIRST TIME.

You may have thoughts about past loves, or even run into or rekindle an old love and particularly affairs, since this is Scorpio and Uranus we are dealing with in this mix.  So, obviously CAUTION should be taken, when she goes direct on November 15th at 5:51AM at 25* of Libra, who is always seeking harmony, balance and justice.  This could be a return to love.

When planets cross from one sign into the next, the energy is palpable.  Any planet at the Anaretic degree 29th* can create a crisis, it is a critical degree that wants to finish things up.
We also see Jupiter is at the 29th degree of Scorpio, that is a whole lot of Plutonian energy and adding to that, a critical degree.  Jupiter/Zeus expands what it comes into contact with.  He is classically considered a benevolent planet, but he can expand upon undesirable energies/planets and points.  He can also expand the waste-line, typically when found in the 1st house of the native.

So all the while this is happening in our heavens, Pluto/Hades is traversing through the energy of Capricorn the Goat and is now at 19*.  Capricorn/10th house is the public eye, the top of the mountain.  It is career and those who rule over us, (bosses at work) and traditionally the ‘old man’ as Saturn or Pan.  There is Pluto, churning up the deep guts inside of that mountain (and your own depths) getting rid of everything that stands in his way that doesn’t have the integrity or strength to handle this inferno.

There is an awful lot of layers being burned off that were occluding our ability to clearly see into your/our own soul and your/our own past, including the collective.  The ghosts have come home to visit.  Following in Pluto’s lava trail, is Saturn/EL The Lord of the Rings, who is now at 5* of Capricorn and is the ruler of the 10th house/Capricorn.  Saturn is structure and stability.  He is the Master Builder.  While Pluto is tearing it up, Saturn is all about putting the structure back into place, so we see new structures being built, perhaps even in your own home, or restructuring adding into the foundations of your life.  Yes, this is a hot seat for the Cardinal Signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

These two will meet up in January of 2020…and what we see now, is only the beginning of a lot of dismantling of the old to make way for the new.

Saturn is Lord of Karma.  Ruler of Time. 

You may be asking yourself about how you SPEND your time, or how much money you are making, are the hours being compensated at the rate which you are satisfied?  How better can you use the time you have to climb up that mountain?  Are you judging yourself and how far down your path/career you have travelled thus far?  Those questions will likely be popping up now and for some time to come.

Adding to this we are also in the middle of the Head and Tail of the Dragon, also known as the nodes of the moon, shifting after around 18 months in the Aquarius/Leo axis, they move into the Capricorn/Cancer Axis on November the 15th at 8:28PM, after being in the very Yang Leo/Aquarius axis since April 2017 This is like hot needle on the pulse of a vibrating world all searching from the depths of their souls, trying to find the light.  Many may feel exhausted while a tension palpably unnerves and forces little holes into the dark cave, light streaming in and with it the fresh air to fill the lungs and lift the wings.

Back and forth, from clearing to stagnation, hope to futility…we must find the deepest light and the gusher of love to assuage the wounds newly ripped open.

Now, in the Yin world of Capricorn (the tail, the past) and his opposite, Cancer the Moon, the MOTHER where the Head of the Dragon is entering and where he is pointing eye of the needle to the future.

All things earth and nurturing will be where we find solace.  A walk in the woods, getting the home fires burning in the hearth.  Getting together with family and friends.  A nice hike on the beach (Typically a Cancer favorite).
Mercury/Hermes at 8* Sagittarius has a lot to say and would love nothing more than to run off and not look back and with Neptune/Poseidon at 13* PIsces (again in rulership) she is forming a lovely trine to the sun and moon’s rendezvous, music and a nice glass of wine are the perfect order to let go some stress and feel the body enjoying this earth.
Jupiter/Zeus is making his way, ready to ingress into Sagittarius, the sign he also rules on November 8th at 7:39 AM…THIS IS A GOOD THING.  In mythology, Jupiter breaks open the head of his father, EL/Saturn/Cronos.  He frees his siblings and together the siblings fight the titans and win, installing Zeus/Jupiter as the new Gd that rules the sky.  (Like Jesus coming to give a softer version of the LAW/ EL has laid down, Jesus brings COMPASSION.  Something sorely missing from our world now.


He will help us to move forward in positive ways.  It will also be really nice to not have one more energy adding to the depths of Pluto’s lair.

So, by now you are much clearer about who you are, and the error of your own ways, ready to forge ahead with a better perspicacity to use the Eagle energy of Scorpio/Pluto, seeing far down the road and lifting up to the sun, your true identity begins to become as clear as day.

And I think it’s about…forgiveness.  Even if, even if, you don’t love the same way anymore.  A deeper love abides.

The New Moon Finding Balance Between the War of the Sexes





Our lovely Luna is in perfect harmony as she nuzzles up to her solar paramour at 15* of Libra in the new moon at 11:46 PM EDT on October 8th, 2018. The duo also forms a hard square to Pluto/Hades who is at 18* of Capricorn may put the somber realization of just how much there is to be done, to achieve the transformation that is necessary.

Many may be feeling as though they have hit a wall of resistance right now, and deep inside the cold nagging fear that something ominous is floating on the horizon, even as the sun and moon do their best to find peaceful resolutions and moments of calm.

The storm?  While Jupiter/Zeus has drug up a lot of painful memories as he transits Scorpio, Venus/Aphrodite now Retrograde in Scorpio is forming a challenging square to Mars who is at 9* Aquarius, another fixed sign…this will have people digging in on different sides of the issues…and the classical, ‘male vs female’ dynamic stimulated into full charge with the energy of the new moon.

Uranus is opposing Mercury/Hermes who is at 28* of Libra, also trying to find the balance before his exit, but ultimately realizing there needs to be a new form of communication.  We have to reach a higher level of awareness to deal with the detritus of the past.

As we near the full moon, we will find the sun has cozied up to Venus at 01* and 04* Scorpio respectively, as the sun has now found his way to illuminate all that dark mess that creeped out, that magnifying love EL-ement opposes a 0*Uranus now electrifying the moon who is at 1* Taurus, and EL is supporting both via sextile and trine, so what we have here, is some reconciliation and medium ground being found, that hopefully has indeed found that virgin ground of shared values, pain and healing…together.

That of course, comes AFTER the blow ups that could spill out onto the merry making, as Neptune trines Venus on this new moon, from her perch at 14* PIsces.






























































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































Careful what you are energizing now, it is going to become much bigger in the future screen of your life, as Venus/Aphrodite/Inanna makes her decent, she is retrograde and does not begin to station direct on November 15th when she has travelled all the way back into Libra, where she will rule again at 25*, coming just weeks after Jupiter ingresses into Sagittarius, where he also rules.  Justice may be on its way after all.

The Essential Component of Ester


Essential oils are made up of different chemical compositions.
This brief article will touch on one of them~ Esters.
Essential oils such as Lavender, Geranium, Bergamot, Clary Sage and Petitgrain have higher ester contents in their chemical composition.

 In chemistry, an ester is a chemical compound derived from an acid in which at least one –OH group is replaced by an –O–alkyl group. Usually, esters are derived from a carboxylic acid and an alcohol.

The German chemist Leopold Gmelin was the first to give the name Ester to molecules with the –COO functional group.
Glycerides, which are fatty acid esters of glycerol, are important esters in biology, being one of the main classes of lipids, and making up the bulk of animal fats and vegetable oils. Esters with low molecular weight are commonly used as fragrances and found in essential oils and pheromones. Phosphoesters form the backbone of DNA molecules. Nitrate esters, such as nitroglycerin, are known for their explosive properties, while polyesters are important plastics, with monomers linked by ester moieties.

Esters are formed from alcohols and acids, and are named after both their original molecules with the alcohols dropping the "ol" and gaining an "yl" and the acids dropping the "ic" and gaining an "ate".
The esters found in essential oils are normally very fragrant and tend to be fruity and their therapeutic effects include being sedative and antispasmodic. Some esters also have anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties - like the anti-fungal properties in geranium oil.
The most well-known ester must be linalyl acetate, which is found in lavender and clary sage.
Even though, a chemist may identify (most) of the chemical components that nature combines to make up the oils, using gas chromatography for instance, the best chemist CANNOT reproduce an identical oil, using the exact same chemical proportions. This replicated oil will not have the same therapeutic effect as the natural and pure essential oil. Science cannot replicate the brilliant mystery of Mother Nature, using the best minds and advanced technology available.
Lavender essential oil, for instance, can be used to successfully treat burns, as was first re-discovered by René-Maurice Gattefossé, a French chemist who used lavender essential oil when he suffered severe burns in his lab in 1910.
Of this he wrote, “In my personal experience, after a laboratory explosion covered me with burning substances which I extinguished by rolling on a grassy lawn, both my hands were covered with a rapidly developing gas gangrene. Just one rinse with lavender essence stopped the ‘gasification of the tissue’. This treatment was followed by profuse sweating and healing began the next day.” Gattefossé’s Aromatherapy, 1937.
But even if the best chemist using all the correct chemical components, such as borneol, terpineol, lavandulol geraniol and linolol, they would NOT have the secret formula that could successfully treat burns.
In fact, you cannot make up lavender essential oil in a laboratory, you will not have an oil that can successfully treat burns, reduce inflammation or calm you down, the way that true lavender oil can. You could even cause harm.
According to Jeannie Rose, it is the Lavendula Angustifolia that is grown in higher altitudes that has the best medicine that is distilled into the lovely and fragrant essential oil that most Aromatherapist suggest for use.
Essential oils are Organic compounds and are all hydrocarbon molecules.
These are further classified as terpenes, alcohols, esters, aldehydes, ketones and phenols, oxides, etc.
Here we can take a closer look at esters, for instance:

The Blood Moon Eclipsed by the Roaring Lion Devouring False Belief's


The full moon at 4* Aquarius comes at 3:20 PM EST and is conjunct Mars at 3* swimming alongside in the night sky, the second most visible light and both line up in opposition to a Fiery Leo Sun, who is conjunct the head of the dragon.

Mars is the closest it has been in 15 years and the atmosphere of the earth will shroud the moon in a reddish hue, turning her ‘Blood Red’ as we head into a full lunar eclipse, that will last almost 4 hours in totality, the longest in a century.

As the sun begins to set, a heated Mars is blowing up emotions and making people feel very uneasy and antsy.  Our identities will be under serious scrutiny, as we peel back even more layers of the hidden, being revealed.  Emotional outbursts will unpack our deeply held fears and self-inflicted flaws creating a new base of authentic soul to shine the light on newly emerging realities.

If we go back to the new moon, we will recall that Pluto was at 20* Capricorn, opposing the 20* Cancer coupling of the sun and moon.
If we go back even further, to the August eclipses last year at the new and full moon we find Mars in that mix again…aggravating sensitive ego’s and inflaming and super-heating conditions in the Lion…now Mars is retrograde in Aquarius and keep in mind, that Pluto is an octave above Mars, co-ruling Scorpio, the eagle that holds the lower energy of the serpent that crawls on his belly in his talons. 


I hope, hope, and hope that this won’t be an explosive new war in the Middle East, since it hovers there for a good portion of the eclipse.
The eclipse will start just west of Hawaii…and could pull that eruption into a full blown volcanic explosion, with the tug of the nodes of the moon.

The good news, this will not be seen in the US, so a lot of its fomentation will be spared here, but in the Middle East and Europe?  Not so much.
It will also end just off the south east coast of the US, so islands in the Caribbean may suffer new assaults, including Puerto Rico or Haiti, who have yet to recover from their last onslaught.  (Yes, I hope I am wrong, just the messenger).

To add to this cocktail, Uranus (ANU) is forming the handle to the T-square at 2* of Taurus, so the FIXED CROSS: Taurus the bull, Leo the Lion, Scorpio the Eagle and Aquarius, (angel of man) are all being seriously triggered, and these are also ‘GATEWAYS’.  Uranus is anything but comfortable as the planet of change and eccentricity/electricity in stable earth sign Taurus.  This will change financial equations as well as the earth herself.

Once again we are finding the end to certain path’s or roads, and beginning or feeling the need to change directions, as ambition and drive find new footing, and ready themselves to move forward when the many retrograde planets Station forward too.

Mercury recently Retrograded at 23* of Leo on July 25th…oh the architect is a brilliant designer…pulling back the sling shot of information and confounding both what is put into the airwaves and our ability to comprehend or hear the message.

There are so many messages flooding us now, the more you see the world’s stage of symbols, numbers, names and SIGNS, the less they can affect you subliminally. 
Just for fun, how many Russian’s were indicted?  Add the one woman and you have 13…how many children were trapped in a CAVE?  12 plus one leader.
When did the indictments come out?  Was it on the eve of Friday the 13th, when our president went to meet with the queen?
All of this is CODING.  These times have people being drawn and quartered while the back room deals are moving fast and furious.

Fortunes will rise, and many will fall and this is only the beginning.

On a positive note, as all of this is excavated and the darkness is exposed, we have a lovely trine formed by Venus/Aphrodite at 19* Virgo to a retrograde Pluto/Hades at 19* Taurus…asking us to put our ducks in a row and pay attention to the budget that a newly direct Jupiter now at 13* Scorpio and also forming a widening trine to 16* Neptune in PIsces is frantically whipping up into ILLUSIONS AND UNREAL EXPECTATIONS.


He will also expand those horizons and dreams for those who have been building on solid ground.

You will find yourselves peering through a steamed glass spectacle, able to momentarily wipe away just enough to get a quick prelude into the future, seeing that new road to travel, yet having it fog back up so quickly, you may doubt what you actually saw in the first place.
So, meditation and prayer, trying to keep the virtues in mind and heart:
The four cardinal virtues, from ancient Greek philosophy, are prudence, justice, temperance (meaning restriction or restraint), and courage (or fortitude). The three theological virtues, from the letters of St. Paul of Tarsus, are faith, hope, and charity (or love).

The core of our very being is challenged and forged in times like these.

A New Moon eclipse and a Trine to the Bull




The new moon eclipse on July 12th 2018 happens at 9:47 PM EDT.  Lady Luna will nuzzle up to ‘ECLIPSE’ her solar paramour, our sun at 20* Cancer…her rulership.  Just beginning the 3rd decanate of Cancer they oppose Pluto/Hades who is retrograde at 20* of Capricorn, opening the CARDINAL directions, they will also close out or eclipse out old patterns and habits.

You have a fresh new road to embrace.  Some will feel as though they are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel from February’s new moon eclipse at 27* of Aquarius, which bleed into the Cardinal sign of Capricorn, where Pluto/Hades now stands in opposition to the sun and moon’s liaison.

Pluto is the ruler of the underworld, mobs, taxes, wills and of course, Scorpio, who is legendary as the insatiable sexy lover.

With Saturn/EL also retrograde at 4* Capricorn, pulling back the veil to help expose all TRUTH while he is gearing up to meet up with Pluto later in 2020.

Jupiter/Zeus has just gone direct and is now at 13* of Scorpio he is ready to expand the horizons and open up the pocket books again, people will start to
splurge and feel a bit more positive, without really even knowing why.

Of course, just as some see the opening and can breathe again, others will feel the opposite way, they will be going down, ships passing in the night.

You may also have found yourself ‘magically transported’ in recent weeks, as if you have been put into a time machine and are reliving the exact feelings and good vibes from times past, out of the blue.  (Even decades ago)

The opposition to Pluto may bring some earth changes, while Mars is also retrograde at 7* of Aquarius, or when Mars, Saturn and Pluto go direct in the coming months.  (You can look this up, here): http://arcoftheancients.blogspot.com/2018/03/astrological-aspects-2018.html

Mars will travel his circuitous route through the heavens back to 28* of Capricorn.  Best to follow your gut instinct after you mull things over.  Tempers have been flaring with the currents charging the energy up to this new moon eclipse, lots of emotions being opened up and the rivers gushing…

We also have a lovely trine, being made from Saturn/EL at 4* Capricorn reaching across to Venus/Aphrodite who is at 3* of Virgo (where she is not so comfy, but she will get earthy and real) and Uranus who is at 2* of Taurus.

This earth trine, will have people tidying things up, sprucing up the homesteads and finding time to entertain at the home.  This is great for gatherings and cookouts.  It is also good to seed some ideas and put some real plans in order that are practical…(after following the gut instinct and sitting with those ideas and plans, and then finding practical ways to implement them as the planets go direct again.)

You will see things come to fruition or exposure as we near the full moon eclipse on July 27th when the moon is eclipsed at 4* Leo. Mercury/Hermes will begin to station retrograde on July 25th at 23* of Leo, just before the full moon eclipse…so…things could get frustrating and confusing to say the least.

Once again, we will see the changing of the guard as we head into the August eclipses…hang on.
