Argentum

April 12, 2008

Argentum is in stage 11 of the silverseries. It is in the same stage as Cuprum, and it is the first stage that has an exchange with others on an individual level. In series as well as in stage it is similar to libra, the individual mind.

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 bounderies. 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.

And sagittarius, the universal spirit as the other part of the silverseries.

Becoming a member of a wider society. Using your talents for the benefit of the greater whole. Awareness of connections to the rest of the world, can be distant from others. Aware of the value of the social contract. Enthusiastic, generous, loves abstract, theoretical ideas, sees the big picture, ignores the details. In love with an ideal, strong opinion.

In Prisma:

Argentum makes good public speakers, persons who lecture using logic and intellect, rather than what they really felt or experienced. The Argentum situation is one where the person has to perform intellectually and express himself through speech, singing, writing and also has to defend himself by intellect, speech and words.

So there is to much emphasis on the mind. Again in Prisma:

Inability to think. Cannot think properly. Reasoners come to the point when they can no longer reason, and the slightest mental effort brings on vertigo. For a moment appearing to be very intens and active in mind, and forgets all that he was talking about. Tired mentally and he forgets all that he was talking about. Loses the thread of his discourse and dreads to talk because he gets complaints while talking. If compelled to answer, he becomes dizzy, and feels strange all over, and has nervous shakes and shocks.

Scholten calls it the maecenas.

Hold on to their successful position, want to continue their success. Protect art, want literature and art preserved for the offspring. Conservative, want to keep what has proven itself. Delicate, inner civilisation. Not like to talk about their inferior feeling. Fear intimicy because then the civil behaviour falls away. Fearful to talk in public and for the camera. Become cramping and nervous. Can not be themselves, because they have to reflect an old standard. No solid ground under their feet. Nervousness expresses in their voice, hoarse.

The complement of libra is aries, which has to be integrated.

Activity that is self-motivated, unaffected by others. Unconcerned with approval or acceptance. Honest and fortright.

Along with gemini, the complement of sagittarius.

Clever, curious, communication. Playful, inconstant, attention easily drifts so something new, seeks novelty.
