Xenon is the last remedy from the silverseries. It is in stage 18, the same stage as Helium (hydrogenseries), Neon (carbonseries), Argon (siliciumseries) and Krypton (ironseries). It is the phase of transformation, the transformation from the silverseries into the goldseries.

Now it gets more complicated as this has to be the transition from libra and sagittarius (silverseries) to capricorn (goldseries). The difficulty is getting more prominent now, as scorpio still did not have its place and will not get it until stage 3 in the goldseries, where the lanthanides are hidden. 

With Xenon the reflection of libra is incorporated and already a characteristic of the personality. There is no desire yet for construction, which is a characteristic of the goldseries. But also the vision of sagittarius is not incorporated yet, because it is a vision that is not yet based on a personality that is whole. Without the individual soul there is not yet a strong and powerful individual that is his own master. And as a result the vision is still limited.   

This is a phase of rest, a pause before the start of a new cycle. A cycle that is more complicated than all previous ones. There is a cycle within a cycle, the lanthanides that are hidden within the goldseries, where finally the characteristics of scorpio can become part of the personality.

Iodium is in stage 17 of the silverseries. Like the other remedies in stage 17, Fluor, Chlorine and Bromium, it is the phase of releasing. Here the complementary sign is more prominent then in the previous stages. In the silverseries that is not one complement, but two. The complements of libra and sagittarius, which are aries

Activity that is self-motivated, unaffected by others. New beginnings, the start of new cycles, birth, vitality. Aggressive, willful, assertive. Focused in short bursts, unlikely to sustain interest in the long term. Adventurous, pioneering, warrior-type energy, impatient, works best alone. Unconcerned with approval or acceptance. Lacks persistence and stamina. Honest and fortright. 

and gemini.

Clever, curious, communication. Making connection with surroundings. Trying to figure out, intelligence. Talkative, sociable, loves to interact with others on a superficial level. Unemotional, impersonal, ruled by rationality. Requires great mental stimulation. Playful, inconstant, attention easily drifts so something new, seeks novelty.

So with Iodium it is about releasing the reflection (libra) and vision (sagittarius) of the silverseries and discover the impulsion (aries) and interaction (gemini). By exploring the polarity of those two principles (from irritable to exhaustion and from curious to anxious) the purpose is to find the balance between reflection (libra) and impulsion (aries) and between vision (sagittarius) and interaction (gemini).

In both complements the spirit and mind are involved, libra (individual mind) and aries (primordial spirit) along with sagittarius (universal spirit) and gemini (primordial mind). What misses here are the body and soul which are going to play a prominent role in the next series, the goldseries (universal body) and the lanthanides (individual soul). 

The challenge here with Iodium, is to reflect (mind, libra) on impulses (spirit, aries) and to use vision (spirit, sagittarius) interactive (mind, gemini). Or use intuition (spirit) logical (mind).

Next in the silverseries is Tellurium. Like Oxygen, Sulphur and Selenium it is in stage 16, which is similar to 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.

After breaking free in the stage of aquarius, the stage of pisces is about unity. It is the universal soul, so it is also beyond the individual, but it is not rational anymore. With aquarius, the universal mind, there is a conscious exchange with the whole world. Pisces, the universal soul, is becoming one with the whole world.

The final goal is compassion, but first there is the polarity of lazyness and confusion. Lazy and confused (pisces) about reflection (libra) and vision (sagittarius). The phase of surrender in the totality of the silverseries.

The complement is virgo, which has to be integrated.

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.
