Hafnium

July 3, 2008

With Hafnium we finally return to the goldseries. The previous stage of the goldseries, stage 3, was a series of its own. It was the stage that was similar to gemini. It was about interaction in the totality of the goldseries, that as a whole is similar to capricorn. Capricorn that has to do with responsibilty, leadership and society.

But those qualities can only be strong if they are supported by an individual who has inner peace. And this inner peace is formed after the long and intensive inner battle, symbolised by scorpio, the sign belonging by the series of stage 3 of the goldseries, the lanthanides.

But now with Hafnium the goldseries continues. Hafnium is in stage 4, the same stage as Titanium (ironseries), Zirconium (silverseries) and Cerium (lanthanides). It is a stage inbetween. It is between gemini in stage 3 and cancer in stage 5, so it has the characteristics of both. It is the phase between the rational decision of the mind (gemini) and the actual experience of the soul (cancer).

So it is learning how to find words for emotions, connect experiences with language, in the whole of the goldseries, which is similar to capricorn.

Bring about the perfect society. Making practical, efficient connections with others on the physical plane. Ambitious, feels pride in accomplishments. Reality, hard facts. Relationship to authority. Serious, determined, disciplined, focused. Fathering, disciplining love. Authority figures. Seeks certainties in life. Want things in concrete. Concerned with the practical relationships to support yourself within society. Not interested in blue sky ideas, needs to bring theory into concrete reality. Knowing the rules and playing the game.

Cerium

May 18, 2008

Cerium is the second remedy of the lanthanides and is in stage 4, the same stage as Titanium (ironseries) and Zirconium (silverseries). Stage 4 is the combination of the signs gemini and cancer, the primordial mind and soul.

Titanium was struggling with the rational decision (gemini) and the actual experience (cancer) in the area of the function (ironseries), while Zirconium had that same struggle with reflection and vision (silverseries). 

Cerium is a combination of mind and soul, the primordial mind (gemini, stage 4 and lanthanides) together with the primordial soul (stage 4, cancer) and individual soul (lanthanides, scorpio).

Here in stage 4 is the phase of interaction (gemini) and emotion (cancer) in the totality of the lanthanides, which is about interactive (gemini) integration (scorpio).

Scholten mentions two remarkable symptoms of Cerium.

Feeling of not being in contact with the world, and do things without trial and error but by practising in their mind.

Zirconium

March 27, 2008

With Zirconium we arrive at stage 4 of the silverseries, which is between the signs gemini (stage 3, interaction) and cancer (stage 5, emotion).

Stage 4 has the characteristics of both and can be described as doubleminded. The rational decision (gemini) and the actual experience (cancer).

It is the same stage as Titanium in the ironseries. Here with Zirconium it is on the level of the silverseries, which is about reflection (libra),

Harmony, balance, social awareness. Learning how to get along with others, treating others as equals. Art, beauty, harmonious surroundings, distressed by inharmonious interactions. 

and vision (sagittarius).

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.

So Zirconium is the struggle between mind (gemini) and soul (cancer) in the series about art (libra) and inspiration (sagittarius).

In Homeopathy and the elements.

Start with a creative career. Opening their own practise, or the first official exposition. All kind of new ideas and want to carry them out. Want to establish their inspiration. At the beginning of something new and unique and want to get credit for that. Want to declare their ideas, give them a form. Want to break through the old known routine patterns. Want there to be room for creative impulses. Hate to adjust, want to have the freedom to develop their own ideas. Also insecure and hesitating. Can the inspiration be brought into practise. Often fail if they begin with the practise of their inspiration. Become insecure and collaps.
