Tungsten

September 23, 2008

Tungsten is the first remedy of the individual part of the goldseries, the part where the individual becomes seperate from the primordial background, here in the whole of the goldseries.

It is in stage 6, the same stage as Chromium (ironseries), Molybdenum (silverseries) and Neodymium (lanthanides), which is similar to leo.

Ego development, setting yourself apart from the rest of the world. Becoming your own person. Self-expression, being true to your inner nature, acting from the heart. Dawning awareness of self in relation to others. Ego, self-centred, arrogant. Artistic or creative expression. Needs to be a center of attention, likes to be noticed and appreciated, ego-strokes. Personal integrity, true to self, honorable, trustworthy, self-assured, confident.

Leo has the polarity of arrogant and disrespected, so with Tungsten that polarity plays in the world of construction, leadership and responsibility (goldseries/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.

The complement of leo and stage 6 is aquarius which has the polarity of destruction and nervousness. The middle path of aquarius is invention, which is needed to get to the purpose of stage 6, expression.

So Tungsten is about expression (stage 6) of ambition (goldseries).

Holmium

June 8, 2008

Holmium is the first remedy of the universal part of the lanthanides. In the human development this is the point where the individual gets a view of the bigger whole. Holmium is in stage 13, the same stage as Gallium (ironseries) and Indium (silverseries). Here is the transition from the individual soul (scorpio) into the universal spirit (sagittarius).

Becoming a member of a wider society. Experiences that lead to consciousness expansion. Being receptive to new points of view, wisdom, enlightenment. Using your talents for the benefit of the greater whole. Freedom loving, idealist, unfettered by small thinking, inspiration, religion, philosophy, the law. Awareness of connections to the rest of the world, can be distant from others. Afraid to give up freedom, reluctant to be tied down, aware of the value of the social contract. Enthusiastic, generous, loves abstract, theoretical ideas, sees the big picture, ignores the details. In love with an ideal, strong opinion. Foreign travel, liberating experiences.

Sagittarius has the polarity of judging and withdraw with the purpose of vision. The complement is gemini with the polarity of curious and anxious and the purpose of interaction.

Clever, curious, communication. Making connection with surroundings. Trying to figure out, intelligence. Talkative, sociable, loves to interact with others on a superficial level. Unemotional, impersonal, ruled by rationality. Requires great mental stimulation. Playful, inconstant, attention easily drifts so something new, seeks novelty.

This transition was also in the ironseries and in the silverseries, but now with the lanthanides, it is the first time that the individual has found its autonomy.

In ‘Secret Lanthanides’, Scholten mentions cyniscism. 

The contra powers are too strong for them to maintain their own position. They still feel like fighting, at least to some extent. This can also be seen in their verbal fighting. They can express their opinion with sharp remarks. They can be really cynical and sarcastic. It shows that they feel they know better, but can not hold that opinion completely.

Gadolinium

May 31, 2008

At the top of the lanthanides is Gadolinium. It is in stage 10, the same stage as Niccolum (ironseries) and Palladium (silverseries).

With Gadolinium the insecurity makes place for confidence. While in stage 9 perfection (virgo) was combined with insecurity (cancer), is in stage 10 the perfection combined with confidence (leo).   

Ego development, setting yourself apart from the rest of the world. Becoming your own person. Self-expression, being true to your inner nature, acting from the heart. Dawning awareness of self in relation to others. Ego, self-centred, arrogant. Artistic or creative expression. Needs to be a center of attention, likes to be noticed and appreciated, ego-strokes. Personal integrity, true to self, honorable, trustworthy, self-assured, confident.

So stage 10 is the phase of confidence (leo) and perfection (virgo) in the totality of the lanthanides. It is the final result of the development of the self.

Here with Gadolinium the individual has complete self-control. And it is not before the next stage that the control gets disturbed by ‘the other’ (libra).
