Rhenium

October 15, 2008

Rhenium is the second remedy of the individual part of the goldseries. It is in stage 7 which is similar to 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. Lacks confidence in the face of opposition, lives up to duties and responsibilities. Interested in maintaining the body as a fit vehicle.

It is in the same stage as Manganum (ironseries), Technetium (silverseries) and Promethium (lanthanides). Here in the goldseries, the qualities of virgo go with the qualities of another earthsign, 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.

So Rhenium is about functional (virgo) construction (capricorn),  efficient (virgo) leadership (capricorn),  practical (virgo) responsibility (capricorn)  or analytical (virgo) ambition (capricorn).

But that is after searching the extremes of critical and indifferent, which is the polarity of virgo, that has to be explored first.

The complement of virgo is 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.

Pisces has the core of compassion that has to be integrated with the function of virgo.

Promethium

May 24, 2008

Next remedy of the lanthanides is Promethium and here the expression of the individual has to become functional. It is in stage 7, the same stage as Manganum (ironseries) and Technetium (silverseries). But like in the previous series that point is difficult to reach, and it takes until stage 10 to learn how to practise and incorporate that.

Stage 7 is about developing nessesary skills to deal with the difficulties of the series it is in. Here with Promethium it are the skills that are needed to deal with the process of becoming an autonomous individual, that can completely stand on its own.

With Neodymium in the previous stage, the expression of that individual emerged, and now with Promethium, ways have to be found to act and stay autonomous. Finding ways and methods to stand up to the undermining outside world.

Stage 7 is similar to the astrological sign virgo, the individual body

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.

It has the polarity between critical and indifferent with the purpose of function. But this function needs the complement 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.

Technetium

April 1, 2008

With Technetium the theme of the silverseries becomes concrete. While going through the ironseries, the focus was on learning skills in order to survive in the world as an individual. In the silverseries as a whole, it is about reflection of those skills and convince others of their quality.

Here in stage 7 the focus is on function. It is the same stage as Manganum and is similar to 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. Lacks confidence in the face of opposition, lives up to duties and responsibilities. Interested in maintaining the body as a fit vehicle.

So the reflection (libra) and vision (sagittarius) have to become functional (virgo).

The complement is pisces which is about giving up the controle.

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.

Scholten mentions the incompatibility of being unique and cooperate.

Practise in methods of presentation. Desire lessons in creativity. Need feedback. Want to improve talents, find a better shape for inspiration. Sharpen theory with experiments. Need of guru. Also like criticism, as long as it is constructive and improving. Want to cooperate with others. Keep helping others instead of finding their own inspiration. The uniqueness of inspiration and creation does not go together with cooperation with others. Fail because they get stuck in techniques. Creations have quality, but there is no real inspiration. Have the best technique, but miss the real ambition to win. Keep improving their technique, but that is why it does not get an inbuild skill, that can be used automatically.
