Holmium

June 8, 2008

Holmium is the first remedy of the universal part of the lanthanides. In the human development this is the point where the individual gets a view of the bigger whole. Holmium is in stage 13, the same stage as Gallium (ironseries) and Indium (silverseries). Here is the transition from the individual soul (scorpio) into the universal spirit (sagittarius).

Becoming a member of a wider society. Experiences that lead to consciousness expansion. Being receptive to new points of view, wisdom, enlightenment. Using your talents for the benefit of the greater whole. Freedom loving, idealist, unfettered by small thinking, inspiration, religion, philosophy, the law. Awareness of connections to the rest of the world, can be distant from others. Afraid to give up freedom, reluctant to be tied down, 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. Foreign travel, liberating experiences.

Sagittarius has the polarity of judging and withdraw with the purpose of vision. The complement is gemini with the polarity of curious and anxious and the purpose of interaction.

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.

This transition was also in the ironseries and in the silverseries, but now with the lanthanides, it is the first time that the individual has found its autonomy.

In ‘Secret Lanthanides’, Scholten mentions cyniscism. 

The contra powers are too strong for them to maintain their own position. They still feel like fighting, at least to some extent. This can also be seen in their verbal fighting. They can express their opinion with sharp remarks. They can be really cynical and sarcastic. It shows that they feel they know better, but can not hold that opinion completely.

Indium

April 14, 2008

The first remedy from the universal part of the silverseries is Indium. Indium is in stage 13 which is the same stage as Boron (carbonseries), Aluminium (siliciumseries) and Gallium (ironseries). The astrological sign here is sagittarius, the universal spirit.

Consciousness expansion. Freedom loving, idealist, unfettered by small thinking, inspiration, religion, philosophy, the law. Awareness of connections to the rest of the world, can be distant from others. Afraid to give up freedom, reluctant to be tied down. Enthusiastic, generous, loves abstract, theoretical ideas, sees the big picture, ignores the details. In love with an ideal, strong opinion.

The emphasis on sagittarius is very strong here, as it is also part of the whole silverseries. Here it becomes more and more clear that sagittarius can not reach its full potential. The silverseries is similar to libra and sagittarius, but they do not follow each other in the zodiac.

The sign in between is scorpio, and although it has played its part in the stages (stage 12), it is not part yet of the human development as a whole. That will not happen until going into the goldseries, where stage 3 has the hidden development of the lanthanides.

So the universal part of the silverseries is about projecting (libra) a vision (sagittarius) on the rest of the world, without the inner development of the individual. And with Indium the vision will be very present, as it is the intersection of sagittarius in series as well as in stage.

In Homeopathy and the elements it says dogmatic, withdraw on ideas.

Perfect conservators, people who are at their place in museums. Want others to also see that it has been done much better in the old days. Collect antique. Have seen it all, do not need to hear something new. Have their mind made up, are dogmatic and know it all better. New ideas are not for them. Stay behind with the new developments. Disbelief in possibilities of development. Hold on to the old ways. Can not wonder anymore, because everything is well known already. Sometimes an old piece emerges that can make them enthusiastic, but mostly they live with the feeling they all seen it before. Withdraw in their ivory tower. Others do not understand it, so why would they want to try to convince them, who is interested must come to them. Watch with disbelief how new talents get the attention of the public.

And although the vision will not be a result of an inner battle yet, it does need its complement gemini to come to an interaction with other visions.

Gallium

March 3, 2008

Here at this point is the transition from the individual part of the zodiac into the universal part, seen in the totality of the ironseries. The previous transition was the individual becoming separate from his primordial background. It was the transition from the primordial soul (cancer) into the individual spirit (leo).

With this transition the individual soul (scorpio) goes over into the universal spirit (sagittarius). It is the point where the experiences of the individual have to be seen in a bigger whole.

Becoming a member of a wider society. Experiences that lead to consciousness expansion. Being receptive to new points of view, wisdom, enlightenment. Using your talents for the benefit of the greater whole. Freedom loving, idealist, unfetterd by small thinking, inspiration, religion, philosophy, the law. Awareness of connections to the rest of the world, can be distant from others. Afraid to give up freedom, reluctant to be tied down, 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. Foreign travel, liberating experiences.

But with Gallium this is in the limited totality of the ironseries and therefore a limited expression of the sagittarius principle.

Narrow-minded and obstinately attached to their own opinion and intolerant toward others. Often jump to conclusions without taking all factors into consideration.

Gallium is in stage 13 which is the same stage as Boron (carbonseries) and Aluminium (siliciumseries).

The purpose of sagittarius is to develop a vision after exploring the polarity of judgement and withdrawal. The vision has to go beyond the individual viewpoint.

Gallium in Homeopathy and the elements:

Hold on to their known methods. Can not see other possibilities because they are trapped in their own pattern. See that their pattern does not have optimal results, technique is obsolete and see that others have better results. Can not keep up with new techniques and feel threatened to loose his job to someone younger. Try to hold on, but everything changes. Withdraw on old routines. Nostalgia. Want to do everything their own way. Stay independent. Withdrawing to their own island of self opinionated safety. There is no point in entering a discussion.

The complement is gemini which is about interaction. Instead of judgement and withdrawal there has be an exchange with other visions about individual experiences.
