Ytterbium

June 22, 2008

Ytterbium is in stage 16 of the lanthanides. Stage 16 is similar to pisces, the universal soul

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 is the last sign of the zodiac. It is the phase of a cycle that is coming to an end. Here with the lanthanides, it is the cycle of inner development. Ytterbium is in the same stage as Oxygen, Sulphur, Selenium and Tellurium.

In ‘Secret Lanthanides’ Ytterbium is standing outside society.

They don’t belong to the normal world of connections and work. For them the world is nice to philosophize about, but not to live in with all its hectic nature and obligations.

But there is also the promise of seeing the bigger picture, seeing everything as a whole.

The compliment is virgo which is the opposite of the bigger picture. Virgo is about fragmentation.

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.

Virgo has the polarity between critical and indifference with the goal of function. Here in stage 16, function (virgo) has to be fused with compassion (pisces).

Tellurium

May 1, 2008

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.

Selenium

Selenium is in stage 16 of the ironseries. Oxygen and Sulphur are also in that stage 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.

The complement of pisces is virgo, which is similar to the whole ironseries.

The ironseries has the polarity between critical and indifference with the purpose of function after integrating the quality of pisces. And stage 16 has the polarity between laziness and confusion with the purpose of compassion after integrating the quality of virgo.

Scholten mentions indifference and lazyness in their work.

Feel indifferent to their task. Do not have a sense of duty anymore. Always behind with their work, but always come up with an excuse. Inclined to work shortly, until they have enough to live from. Sloppy, let everything become a chaos. Feeling that they can get things done even if they do not work so hard. Inclined to fantasise about their work. All kind of ideas and fantasies about how it would have been if they had chosen another study or job. Do as if everything is easy for them. When criticised they are inclined to neglect that. Become cynical to those who criticise them.
