Cuprum

March 1, 2008

Cuprum is in stage 11 of the ironseries, which is similar to libra.

Individual entering into relationship with others, partnership. One-to-one relationships. Meeting others as an equal, interdependency. Encountering repressed part of yourself through others. Going beyond ego boundaries. Peace, harmony, balance, social awareness. Learning how to get along with others, treating others as equals. Art, beauty, harmonious surroundings, distressed by inharmonious interactions. Dialogue, debate, conflict, enemies, justice.

Libra is the first sign above the horizon of the zodiac. With aries the process started with a new moon phase, and here with libra it is full moon, the process turns around.

But now it is in the outside world, and libra represents the ‘other’, as opposed to the ‘me’ of aries.

Cuprum is about reflection and feedback. And this in the ironseries which is similar to virgo.

Perfection of the approach to life. Development of mundane skills, ability to change to adapt to life better. Service, helping, perfectionist, always seeking to improve, efficiency, practical, functional, analytical. Interested in crafts and projects, true to self in a simple, unassuming manner. Reacts to defeats and setbacks by pulling back and altering approach. Lives up to duties and responsibilities.

So at this point the skills are developed, but now others react to that. And how far do you go in maintaining your own approach.  This might explain the cramping state of Cuprum.

In Homeopathy and the elements:

Very serious. Not want to loose control. Keep emotions under control, stay friendly and kind. Hold on to thoughts. Precise and rigid. Rules have to be followed, than nothing can go wrong. Rules give a sense of safety. Others also have to follow the rules. And if others do not follow the rules they will tell. Need to double-check everything. Everything has to be perfectly tested. Feel a guard of the order and can be very irritated if others disturb that order. Because of the rigid compulsive behaviour they incline to rituals, a meaningless stereotype sequence of proceedings. Superstition. Sensitive to criticism. Very angry if others criticise them, touch them or even look at them. Need to hide and escape. Others have to obey the rules, fulfil their duty and keep their promise.
