Rhenium

October 15, 2008

Rhenium is the second remedy of the individual part of the goldseries. It is in stage 7 which is similar to virgo.

Embodiment of the individual in the world. Problems of adjustment dealing with the world and others. 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. Lacks confidence in the face of opposition, lives up to duties and responsibilities. Interested in maintaining the body as a fit vehicle.

It is in the same stage as Manganum (ironseries), Technetium (silverseries) and Promethium (lanthanides). Here in the goldseries, the qualities of virgo go with the qualities of another earthsign, capricorn.

Bring about the perfect society. Making practical, efficient connections with others on the physical plane. Ambitious, feels pride in accomplishments. Reality, hard facts. Relationship to authority. Serious, determined, disciplined, focused. Fathering, disciplining love. Authority figures. Seeks certainties in life. Want things in concrete. Concerned with the practical relationships to support yourself within society. Not interested in blue sky ideas, needs to bring theory into concrete reality. Knowing the rules and playing the game.

So Rhenium is about functional (virgo) construction (capricorn),  efficient (virgo) leadership (capricorn),  practical (virgo) responsibility (capricorn)  or analytical (virgo) ambition (capricorn).

But that is after searching the extremes of critical and indifferent, which is the polarity of virgo, that has to be explored first.

The complement of virgo is pisces.

Surrender to the universe, to higher goals, ego sacrifice. Compassion and empathy, selfless work. Seeing the unity of all things. The end of cycles, forming seeds for the next cycle of growth. Mysticism, fails to make normal distinctions. Laziness, victim, martyr, servant. Tends to escapism. Fantasy, drugs, alcohol, religion. Very receptive, sensitive, even psychic. Co-dependency, care-taking.

Pisces has the core of compassion that has to be integrated with the function of virgo.
