Zincum is the last remedy in the individual part of the ironseries. It is in stage 12 which is similar to scorpio.

Transformation, change, ego-death, rebirth, transcendence. Intense emotional involvement with the process of personal growth. Movement from individual certainties to the mysteries of life. Spirit breaking through the limitations of the individual ego. Intense, passionate, brooding, magnetic, unyielding, driven by emotions. Stands up for self, usually covertly, manipulates power. Understands deeper layers of the psyche beyond the ego, unable to communicate this well leading to misunderstandings. Intrigued by the dark side of life. The underground, people whose job involves going beneath surface appearances. Breaking free of illusory limitations. Self-mastery.

The individual part of the ironseries started with expression (leo), develop skills to function (virgo) and then reflection (libra) from the outside world. Now with scorpio, the repressed part of the self has to be integrated.

With Zincum this integration goes along with virgo. In Prisma:

Pure zincum obstinately resists attacks, which gives rise to two conflicting philosophical conclusions: the praise of purity, which protects from evil like a coat of mail. And the praise of impurity, which gives rise to changes, in other words, to life. In order for the wheel to turn, for life to be lived, impurities are needed.

Scholten mentions the endless repetitions which result in pollution.

Succeed in their work, but overdo it. Restless. Tics en restless movements. Aggravation when resting. Stressed with study and school. Because of the over-straining of the intellect they can perform very well in the beginning. Later on it can be the other way around, a mental dullness. Learning by repeating endlessly. Repetition and copying can have a huge pollution as a result. More and more of the same. Endless copying. Feeling others obstruct their work. Stubbornness and repeating of old methods makes them go wrong. To hard work leads to failure, which is denied. Guilty after failure, feeling they committed a crime. Feel pushed by superiors and parents.
