Here is the transition from the carbonseries into the siliciumseries. The manifestation is now completed and must go to interaction. But with Neon, in stage 18, the transformation gets stuck.

The whole carbonseries is symbolised by taurus, the primordial body, which is the first earth-sign of the zodiac. Next series is similar to the first air-sign, gemini, the primordial mind.  

Neon in Homeopathy and the elements:

They are worth a lot but do not want to get into relations with others. Rather stay with themselves without getting involved. Free of good and evil. Like to be unbound. Without needs. They feel locked up in their selves. Transition of their own inner world to the world of relations.

The elements in stage 17 are called the halogens and are highly reactive. They easily form compounds with other elements, so they are part of many homeopathic pictures in the form of fluoratums, muriaticums, bromiums and iodatums.

They are at the end of each series after the last sign of the zodiac in stage 16, and before the transformation to a new cycle that belongs to stage 18.

Where in the early development of the series the complementary sign is not yet known well, and seems to come from the world outside, in the later development of each series, the complement is more a characteristic of the remedy. 

In the carbonseries that means that scorpio is very manifest in the later stages and manipulation and abuse play an important role in those remedies, especially Fluor.  

Stage 17 in Homeopathy and the elements:

Releasing is central for this stage. As soon as they see that they cannot hold on to the past, and that letting go is the best thing to do, they are a big stap ahead. That is the power of this stage. As long as they fight it, the pain and grief will increase. 

And Fluor:

The tendency to release all values. Free and immoral behaviour. Need the glamour and admiration of others to confirm their feeling of self-value. It is all about the beautiful smooth, but hard outside. Take what they want, without considering others. Manifest themselves even at the cost of others. They need contact to fill their own void. But if the other becomes to strong, they go away.

Oxygen is in stage 16 of the carbonseries, which is similar to pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. The personal development is coming to an end, although there are two more stages before the next series, where the space expands to include others.

The abstract ideal of pisces is compassion which has the polarity between laziness and confusion. 

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. 

Scholten talks about the problem of Oxygen with really coming into life. 

Holding on to possession. Trouble finding the balance between giving and taking. They are afraid of loosing their possessions and fearful hold on to them. Or indifferent to possessions. Fear of being selfish. Stay with themselves and outside life. Stay with their inner qualities and look at life from the outside in, without taking part. Complaining, demanding, cannot wait.

The complementary sign is virgo, which has the polarity of critical and indifferent. The fusion of compassion and function should lead to coming into real life, but staying pure inside.
