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.

Krypton is about the transition to the second half of the zodiac, here we are coming above the horizon. Next is the silverseries which is similar to libra. It is the point of full moon, the process is turning around.

Libra is the logical follow up of virgo and therefore the sign that goes with the silverseries. It also fits the observations of Scholten who talks about the silverseries as art and esthetics. But he also talks about ideas and inspiration which belongs to sagittarius, the universal spirit.

So libra as well as sagittarius both seem to belong to the silverseries. But the problem is that they are not next to each other in the zodiac. There is a sign in between those two, scorpio. Scorpio does not fit here, but it is perfect for the lanthanides.

So with scorpio/sagittarius is the same difficulty as there was with cancer/leo. Although cancer comes before leo in the zodiac, the similar remedies are the other way around in the periodic table, first Sulphur and then Chlorum.

And the same here, sagittarius belonging to the silverseries and scorpio belonging to the lanthanides.

So it is as if the spirit is going to the new area (from primordial to individual in puberty and from individual to universal in midlife) and the soul to follow takes a longer time.

But with Krypton it is not so far yet. It is in stage 18 of the ironseries and therefore it is the phase of rest before going over to ‘the other’ (libra).

Stage 18 in general:

Rest, a pause before the start of a new cycle. Just want to stay in one place and do nothing. Locked up in their isolated condition. The experiences of the previous cycle are internalised and integrated.

With Krypton this is the transition from the ironseries to the silverseries. Or from virgo to libra/sagittarius. Or from function to reflection and vision.

Do not want to look at their work yet, what could be changed. They took a distance from the routinework, but do not want to be occupied yet with the speciality. No need yet to leave their practical, pragmatic attitude.

Argon is like Helium and Neon in stage 18, which is the place where one series transforms into another.  With Argon that is the transition from the siliciumseries into the ironseries

This is at the same time a transformation from the primordial part of the zodiac into the individual part.  This transformation already started with Sulphur, but that was only a potential inner process.   

Here it should manifest in the world outside. If this inner process has resulted in an individual, who is convinced of his own creative potential (leo) and can deal with his emotions (cancer), it is now time to become really good at something (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. Duties and responsibilities. Interested in maintaining the body as a fit vehicle. 

It is the polarity between critical and indifferent and should result in a function. A function that builds a strong individual who is capable of dealing with the world.
