Barium

May 13, 2008

Barium is in stage 2 of the goldseries. It is in the same stage as Beryllium (carbonseries), Magnesium (siliciumseries), Calcium (ironseries) and Strontium (silverseries). Barium, like Calcium is similar to two earthsigns. But unlike Calcium, none of those two belongs to the individual part of the zodiac. The goldseries is similar to capricorn, the universal body and stage 2 is similar to taurus, the primordial body.

Grounding, bringing down to earth. Constancy, steadiness, entering matter, taking on a form. Earthy, grounded, in touch with the body. Sensual, pleasure seeking. Stubborn, fixed, stands their ground. Focuses and concentrates energy, gives it concrete expression. Practical, provides stamina and persistence. Slow, steady, methodical.

The goal of taurus is manifestation, but at first there is the polarity between stubborn and fear. And in the case of Barium, stubborn and fear in the area of the goldseries, which itself has the polarity of formal and depressed with the final purpose of construction.

The complements are cancer, the primordial soul and scorpio, the individual soul. So there is the polarity of claiming and abandon (cancer) and the polarity of manipulate and abuse (scorpio).

Together with that there is still the judgement and withdrawal of sagittarius, here with the passive body and soul signs. One of the soul signs, cancer will play a role as the complement of the whole goldseries. And scorpio, the other soulsign is going to play a major role in the series that is under the surface of the goldseries. It is one of the most difficult but also one of the most rewarding processes in the human development

Scorpio is the last phase of the individuation process, that started with leo, the individual spirit, that discovered its own unique quality. But this unique quality is useless, if it is not made available for the benefits of the world as a whole.

And as long as the individual has no knowledge of his own subconscious drives, he is likely to use his power on others instead of using it for his inner development. Getting to know and master yourself, to become capable and powerful to serve the world.

Strontium

March 24, 2008

Strontium is in stage 2 of the silverseries. It is the same stage as Beryllium, Magnesium and Calcium. The astrological sign of stage 2 is taurus.

Grounding, bringing down to earth. Constancy, steadiness, entering matter, taking on a form. Earthy, grounded, in touch with the body. Sensual, pleasure seeking. Stubborn, fixed, stands their ground. Focuses and concentrates energy, gives it concrete expression. Practical, provides stamina and persistence. Slow, steady, methodical.

Taurus is the polarity between stubborn and fear, here in the silverseries, on reflection (libra) of their own vision (sagittarius).

In Homeopathy and the elements.

Feeling that everyone around them sees how they think, what their ideas are and how their talents are developed. Very insecure about their creativity. Notice all ideas of others and compare them to those of themselves. Or judging the ideas of others. Thinking about their inner being, where they come from and where they are going. Are they worth something, are they unique, do they have something special to offer. Easily feel taken over by the way of living and ideas of others. Feel at the mercy of others and can not resist them. Undergo them passive and adjust. Overwhelmed by the images and occurrings in the world. Others walk over them, push them and force their ideas on them. Totally adjust and do everything the other says. Inclined to withdrawal to the judgements, because they can not stand up to them. No inner criteria and therefore go by the value judgements of others. Adjust, rather stay unnoticed than to attract attention with the danger of being judged. Aversion of ordinary conversations. Stay in their own world of thoughts. Become stubborn, but without expressing that. Hold on to their own ideas.

The final purpose of Strontium is a manifest reflection and vision. But first there has to be the integration of scorpio.

Transformation, change, ego-death, rebirth, transcendence. Intense emotional involvement with the process of personal growth. Movement from individual certainties to the mysteries of life. Spirit breaking through the limitations of  the individual ego. Intense, passionate, brooding, magnetic, unyielding, driven by emotions. Stands up for self, usually covertly, manipulates power. Understands deeper layers of the psyche beyond the ego, unable to communicate this well leading to misunderstandings. Intrigued by the dark side of life. The underground, people whose job involves going beneath surface appearances. Breaking free of illusory limitations. Self-mastery.

Calcium

February 17, 2008

The next remedy of the ironseries is Calcium. It is in stage 2, the same as Beryllium and Magnesium, which is similar to taurus.

Calcium is a combination of two earthsigns with the complement of two watersigns. Earth and watersigns are both passive, which is a well known characteristic of Calcium in homeopathy.

Another important item of Calcium is fear (taurus) of criticism (virgo). In homeopathy and the elements: 

Fear of what others might think of them. Especially watched in their work. Afraid that it will not be good enough. The fear that others will not find them good enough, shows in a strong sensitivity for criticism. Undergo the criticism passive, have no defense against it, except closing off. Try to do their work as good as possible, so that nobody can criticise it. Try to cover up their mistakes. The cause is often that others criticised them openly. Feeling that everything has to be done according regulations, inclined to check everything. 

The essence of Calcium is the delusion that others will observe their confusion. Confusion is, like laziness, also a form of pisces, the complementary sign of the whole ironseries.

So with Kalium in stage 1 this complement is only seen in the outside world. Here with Calcium in stage 2 there is an awareness of their own inner nature, but not something they want to be part of their personality.
