excerpt from “Les Clés d'Arya”
We will mention only the indisputable masters in Spagyria, although all those who performed the great alchemical work were spagyrists in terms of research.
We like to quote, about Spagyria, what was written by Daniel Stalcius and widely commented on by the one we had the honour of knowing and appreciating: Bernard Husson, in his admirable collection "Viridarium Chymicum or the Chemical Garden" - bookstore of Medici 1975. If it was not forged by Paracelsus, the term surely derives from its doctrine and will disappear at the same time as the doctrine itself. It (the term) embraces a coherent conception of the nature of the bodies of the three kingdoms considered to be formed under the underlying organizing influence of three active, sulphurous, mercurial and saline principles, in close correspondence with the hermetic notions of mind, soul and body...
To develop a spagyric remedy is to treat the plant, the animal organ or the mineral that contains it, so as to separate by an induced rotting process - the 5 principles, and then to gather only 3 that prove to be active, in a synthesis where the main thing is to unite the mercury with sulfur by the action of salt and a slow cocktion or ripening. In this way a perfect separation of the pure from the impure and an exaltation of the virtues of the quintessence thus obtained was made.
"On a double square, founding the elements, reducing four different bodies into one body, quadrangulating from the sky the circular vaults, of this eclipsed sky establishing roundness, raising by 10 degrees its supreme splendor: it is building in the world a mystery world."
As you can be sure, the kings principles or fires of nature cannot be dissociated from the 4 elements so that the earth can turn and that the “materia prima “(raw material) consisting of the first three, can mature and perfect as much as possible in order to obtain the quintessence of spagyric as well as alchemical.
Apart from the principle sulfur, and the principle mercury, the so-called philosophical and then philosopher’s salt after a first purification and vivification, subsides. This salt remains and will remain throughout the work, both alchemical and spagyric, the only purifying and coagulating mediator link.
If he is a mysterious spagyrist as to his date and place of birth – he remains and always will remain.
According to some writings, the latter was born in 1394. His writings began in 1599 and ended with the last will in 1626, roughly 232 years of existence. What to think and what to believe?
His real name was Philippus Theophrastus Aureolus Bombast von Hohenheim, known as Paracelsus, nicknamed the "Cursed Doctor" no man except later Count Saint-Germain and Cagliostro caused so much uproar around him. He was born in Einsiedeln near Zurich in 1493 and died in Salzburg in 1541.
He's one of the strangest figures of Renaissance. Expert in esoteric astrology, a master consumed in the art of alchemy, this small man of size but tall in thought, practiced cabalistic theurgy, that is, the true magic of the ancient sages of India, as well as an hermetic medicine whose bases rested entirely on secret doctrine. He possessed the treasure trove of treasures, the science of sciences, namely the Philosopher's Stone in the explanation of the mysteries of life and death.
Its existence, like that of St Germain and Cagliostro later, was a life of uninterrupted wandering. He soon renounced the classical teaching of his time. He said in Book IV of his “defensiones”: "Universities do not teach all things. The doctor must look for good women, gypsies, stray tribes, robbers and other outlaws and learn from all. We must by ourselves discover what serves science, travel, undergo many adventures and remember what ion this road can be useful." He fully adhered to the mysterious doctrines of Father Trithème, with whom he remained until 1515. He rejected the medical oracles of Avicenna and Gabier, but he incorporated the conception of Arab alchemists such as Geber and Rhazes for whom the elements of nature are forces in action.
He stood as an opponent of the established laws, burned the medical books of the Greeks and Arabs to focus only on the purest of ancient doctrines, that of alchemy. He was in perfect agreement with the doctrine of oriental yoga. His reputation as a doctor and healer was enormous and earned him the hatred of some well-known contemporaries. The Eratses and Dessenins called him a monster from hell and an "unspeakable path".
Certainly, Paracelsus was a keen follower, carried away, "rebel"; however, all his knowledge he put all of it at the service of his apostolate, of the art of healing. He played the pioneering role in undertaking creative and innovative actions in the field of pharmacology. He obtained resounding healings which earned him the enmity of the brothers whose shops were disintegrating.
His language was obscure only for the layman. Paracelsus was the spokesman and torchbearer of the Rose and the Cross. He was not allowed to say everything, except in a language of perfectly hermetic esotericism.
Paracelsus was the continuation of Pythagorean Ideas, Plutonian, Essene and Neoplatonic ideas, readings of the works of Plato, Plutarch and Jamblique will allow us to approach the sources where he draws water of the initiation knowledge that quenches all thirsts for the soul and spirit.
For Paracelsus, the stars were neither primary causes nor even secondary causes but only "signs, alert symbols" expressing the rhythms of unique life in a holistic relationship (from the Greek holos: the whole, globality, and holis: the sacred) permanent between the planets and Man, between macrocosm and microcosm, between Heaven and Earth.
To understand this authentically holistic global relationship, the existence of beings and things, one must discover the subtle art of correspondence. "The outer Sky," he says, "only demonstrates and indicates the inner Sky." He clarified his thought by declaring that "the wisdom given to us by God dominates the sky and its stars."
It is impossible for us to change the course of fate, teaches us the "cursed doctor" but we have the power to resist him as a wall resists the cannon and even if someone was a child of Saturn and with Saturn at the ascendant, he can escape Saturn, he can become a child of the Sun.
The main idea of Paracelsus is that the stars influence things and beings by imposing their seals on everything, but there is no obligation to respond to these influences if we become spiritually elevated beings.
From this alchemical knowledge, this follower has held that any universal structure has as its analog basis the three principles, which the secret doctrine calls sulfur, mercury and salt of philosophers.
This conception is not typically "Paracelsian" because it is the very foundation of the ancient doctrine that is intended to be global par excellence and for which Man is an integral part of the cosmos, both by his body and by his soul.
The student can only marvel at the immense extent of the work written by Paracelsus. This follower declared aloud an essential truth of creation "the God of macrocosm and the God of the microcosm act on each other, both are one in essence, for there is only one God, a law and a nature by which wisdom can manifest itself". In a word, he reaffirmed the unity of matter and spirit.
Today, Paracelsus' work must revive the world's interest in medical research. The ideas of The Einsiedeln doctor are more relevant than ever, as they allow a new technological approach to the development of useful remedies to cure and relieve the human race. From this medical point of view, alchemy illuminates astrology and spagyria to generate a true and authentic global medicine, that is to say holistic, namely iatrochemy.
This is no more than the application of alchemical philosophical theorems to medical chemistry.
The principles that are draped under the research of the Great Work proclaim the unity of the spirit, the unity of substance, the unity of the essence from which the unity of matter results, the evolution of this matter and the awareness of the forces that act in it and through it.
In the end, for Paracelsus, everything is only divine life, a universal divine life that is producing matter and strength; it is the very consciousness of God that animates the holistic laws of universal life.
Thus, matter is inanimate only in appearance. Metals are endowed with universal life and can receive the imprint of perfect life through the operations of the Great Work, the Great Magisterium of the Wise.
In this way, the iatrochemist doctor can use them to heal, thus recreating life. What is true for metals is also true for precious stones.
Paracelsus’s thought emerges from the following general theory: the unity of mind and matter is the dominant law of the universe, which implies the unity of strength and energy because everything is in everything. It follows that Paracelcus’ philosophy is higher than one might have thought and is therefore perfectly updated and usable in the field of practical medicine of the new age.
This art consists of naturally extracting the pure essence from the mixed.
In other words, the process must be applied by an artist who is well versed in the law of nature.
To do this and in an imperative way, he must be in communion with the latter and treat her with respect and love.
This nature, whether mineral or plant, is given only to those who have understood the above and know how to apply it not for themselves, but for others.
As everyone knows, our good and very old planet supports 4 kingdoms that are: the mineral, the plant, the animal and the human or more precisely the homo who is not necessarily human.
Struck by immobility as to its freedom of movement is however not inert in its evolution, not only possible but also inevitable in time.
Natural elements, such as air, water, solar fire, cosmic vibrations, the influence of the Moon as well as various phenomena, sub-terrain or under-terrain, will actively participate in the evolution of this mineral to transform it into silica, metalloid metal, etc.
The family of minerals is directed and taken over by a group entity, which is hierarchically attached to all beings that participate in the great cosmic whole.
The little pebble that you shake with your foot while being lost in your thoughts is therefore not to be despised because it is from him and by him, simple link of the beginning of things, that will be able to form the chain of life.
Like the mineral, this reign is very diverse . It is like the first, attached to a group entity.
The important question is how a plant, a tree, etc. would find its food if there was not originally the mineral to compose harmoniously its nourishing land? For it is a fact that any plant is composed of metalloids (potassium, calcium, silica, etc.) and metals (zinc, copper, iron) plus other various trace oligo-elements.
It is therefore important to know that the first link is represented by the Mineral and the second, by the Plant.
Here we are in the presence of the third link in this chain of life. Without the plant, which participates in the mineral, the animal would not exist and the intervention of the plant between the mineral and the animal is indispensable because the latter takes from the previous reign metals and metalloids, digests them, vegetats them, in fact the matter passing from one reign to another acquires an etheric, emotional and mental body, makes them assimilable and a soul mineral group, the essence of life will pass to a soul plant and then to an animal group.
Isn't that a transmutation from one reign to another? To gain independence and maturity at every passage.
Man, the last link in the earthly chain. Against other kingdoms, its three principles are a body, a soul and a spirit. His soul and spirit are immortal and the experience and achievement of these three principles return to the source of the "great whole".
We will not talk any further about this last link. Our aim is to make it clear that man cannot do without the three previous reigns as far as his life on the planet is concerned.
The latter can take "physical" form only by the three principles which are: A sulfur, a mercury and a salt, which are specific to his reign and in relation to his hierarchy in the latter.
What must be taken for perfect understanding is that the simple grain of sand is composed of these three principles in proportion and in natural quality. This is a law that concerns other kingdoms but also all "planets".
By the mineral, as mentioned above it draws its food from the nourishing soil.
All plants are rooted, a main stem and secondary branches, leaves and flowers, and then fruits. The sap of the plant fed by the roots represents the plant mercury and is responsible for the fragrance that reaches both the flower and the leaf or fruit.
The sulphur principle maintains the vital heat of the plant and also gives the color of plants and fruits.
Salt, which consists mainly of two metalloids that are potassium and calcium, allows stems and branches in particular to take shape and stiffness.
All this being explained, simply in order to raise awareness and allow the reader to follow the path.
Indeed, if there is a single missing link to this vital harmony for us, we could no longer evolve and live on this planet because we exist only in a set of reigns united by a need for evolution and governed by a common law that exceeds us in total understanding, and which Man has called God.
It also contains the three principles: the body (salt principle), the soul (mercurial principle) and the spirit (sulphur principle). But the animal kingdom is ruled by a group soul and these three principles in their quantity and quality correspond to this reign of evolution.
Also subject to these three principles, sulphur (the mind), mercury (the soul) and salt (the body), in a more elaborate form both physical and spiritual.
It is certain that if only one of these three principles were missing in each of the kingdoms and for each individual, they could not exist in any form, and Man could not live on this Earth.
The three principles are therefore the basis of all things and by dying and constant rebirth they pass from one reign to another, each time acquiring an ether of more subtle life, and, a greater independence of life.
The principles of salt, mercury and sulphur all correspond to a particle of matter. By analogy we could equate them with neutron, electron and proton or igneous forces of nature: Mother, Son and Father or action, movement and thought.
The three principles are not only materials but represent an energy that can be fixed in or on a vibratory medium. To allow this ENERGY to incarnate, it is necessary to prepare the receptacle, ennoble it; then the ENERGY will be able to express itself.
The plant also contains these three principles: a sulfur (oil: spirit of the plant), a mercury (alcohol-ether or mercurial water: soul of the plant), and a salt (potassium: body of the plant).
The plant draws from the mineral what it needs: it is then vegetated. It will therefore have in it different metals and metalloids directly absorbable by man, if they are vibrationnaly enough purified.
Spagyric Art will therefore consist of making the salt, mercury and sulfur (body, mind, soul of the plant) parts as noble as possible so that, rid of their faeces (waste) and ennobled by laboratory work, their healing virtues arrive at a pure quintessence and are pushed to the maximum of its vibration. The Plant will then be able to act on the physical, emotional and mental body of man and animal.
These preparations can then be diluted into homeopathic remedies.
Although there are three principles: body, soul and spirit, there are 4 elements: earth, water, air and fire, the fifth being the result of the other 4.
Talking about them is not an easy thing because they alone represent a great mystery of nature and would require a complete work.
Although some writings have reached us from elders where they give some explanations, none is really clear, sufficiently explicit and science being currently fragmented, since we separate alchemy, spagyria, astrology, theurgy, yoga, etc., it is difficult for us to fully understand what they really meant. Indeed, in antiquity, some hierophanitic schools taught these disciplines as complementary which were part of the initiation given to students by some teachers of the time, including Pythagoras, Plato and many others.
Few of these writings synthesize between the temperament, elements and subtle bodies of Man (his aura), and show the interaction of one on the other forming our occult being. Even the word occult, which only means hidden, has been misunderstood. The occult sciences are not weird, they have simply been hidden so as not to lose their essence. There will surely come the time when all these things will be part of everyday life. It is only regrettable that science does not ask more questions about this; an exchange and teamwork would be beneficial to all in the medical and social field and would bring greater respect for peoples and our environment.
Salt, mercury and sulfur: the body, soul and spirit, to purify themselves pass through the four elements. Thus, do the elements generate the 3 principles and the 3 principles generate the 4 elements.
The sum of 3+4 gives us 7, this famous number 7 which represents the 7 layers of our auric envelope, the 7 chakras or wheels of light in relation to the 7 endocrine glands, the 7 worlds where the soul resides, the 7th heaven.
As you see it, you can't separate things. Everything is in everything and what is at the bottom is like what is at the top, with a difference in quality; to realize this, it is sufficient to observe nature.
Salt generates land, mercury, water and sulphur, fire; air is the resulting or sublimation state of one element over another.
Salt, the body, is a materialization of the dry that is in fire and earth.
Mercury, the soul, materializes through the wetness that is in the air and in the water.
Sulphur, the spirit, materializes through the warmth that is in fire and air.
The "non-producer" cold lives in water and soil, a passive element.
Sulphur or spirit is the fixed or latent heat that does not burn but heats gently, it is electricity, it is the dynamic agent of fermentation, it is the masculine principle of seed. It is active in generation and in relation to mercury.
Sulphur is naturally hot, stimulating, fertile. Its intrinsic heat causes the evolution of nature and fights the action of the cold. It resides in the salt (body) that holds it and thickens it more or less.
Sulphur in plants appears in the form of oil, resin sap and it resides in the essential and heady warm parts of the mixtures: it is from it that the quality of the odors is generated.
But sulphur, like mercury and salt, also contains the three principles because it always takes a + and a - to produce a neutral (Son).
The sulphur found in metals is very different from the vulgar sulphur found in the chemical industry, it is composed of a fixed root and a volatile root. It contains in abundance untotted moisture or coagulated gas vapour.
It is not found alone and separate in the mining industry. It is still hidden in the mining land.
Its essence is oilseed, subtle, penetrating and flammable; it is difficult to reduce in principle pure, only the hermetic operations of the Great Work of the wise can achieve its fixity, which will determine its state of purity of incombustibility.
It is the male principle of all seed and from it is born the fundamental red color. In Man it corresponds to the spirit and the monad.
It is governed by the combined elements of fire and air.
Fire gives it the reactive and irritating action of the dry on the hot, causing violence and responsiveness.
The air gives it the expansive and dilating action of the hot on the wet causing molecular attraction.
When the sulphur principle contains a certain amount of salt and terrestreities, (land-litterates) - it is called unclean. It is then the cause of the beauty or deformity of the animals, the different colors of the plants as well as the conductivity and maneuverability of the metals.
It preserves the body from corruption. It softens the acrimony of salts and spirits (gas).
It protects plants from cold and frosts (firs, cypresses, etc.).
Vulgar sulphur, the sixteenth element of Mendeleev's periodic classification, contains a lot of unclean sulphur. It can be recognized for its smell and taste. It cannot be suitable as a raw material used to make the Great Work. The vulgar sulfur is an impure fat of nature, it is combustible while the principle sulfur of philosophers is a pure fat of nature: it is a non-combustible principle.
Sulphur has a name in every kingdom: it is called simply sulfur in the mineral kingdom, oil in the plant kingdom, fat in the animal kingdom and spirit in the human kingdom.
The soul mercury is a subtle, volatile, mobile, spiritual humidity of a generating nature; it is the feminine principle of seed. It is passive in generation and relative to sulphur but is active in its mobility.
Mercury resides in water, its vehicle in plants.
It holds the smell in metals.
It is strongly combined with sulfur by salt.
It is the second active ingredient in the Great Alchemical Work.
It is very different from the vulgar mercury of the chemical industry.
The mercury of alchemists has the power to improve the purity of gold so that it can no longer be reduced to body other than with itself by a slow metallic decoction.
In itself, vulgar mercury is not a metallic principle and it cannot be, as it stands, one of the protagonists of Hermes' Great Work (magisterium).
The vulgar mercury is an imperfect finite metal while the mercury principle of philosophers is a metal principle and not a finished metal.
In the vulgar mercury, the wet part dominates over the dry or airy part. In the mercury principle it is exactly the opposite; the dry part (air) dominates over the wet part (water). This is the difference between vulgar mercury and the philosophers' principle mercury.
Mercury principle is a principle of vaporous, gaseous, subtle, mutative nature, governed by the combined elements of air and water
It is the neutral principle of any seed, it is the unifying principle of the male (sulphur) and the female (salt), the one that ensures the link between the principle sulfur and the salt principle. It is of neutral polarity. By the presence of air, it participates in sulfur principle and by the presence of water it participates in the salt principle.
By air, it gives mercury principle its expansive and dilating action.
By water, it confers its coagulation power on the mercury principle and allows it a fixing action of the cold on the wet.
From him comes the basic color white or black.
In Man he corresponds to consciousness and soul.
It appears in the resolution of the bodies in the form of a very subtle liquor. It is the most excellent and noblest of the three principles of philosophers.
In the dissolution of things, it presents itself first to our senses.
Mercury principle is a light, subtle, penetrating substance. It gives life and movement to bodies; it makes them vegetate and grow.
Since mercury is continuously in action and in motion, it would not remain in the body for long if it were not retained by the other two principles: sulphur and salt.
It can be noted that where mercurial vapours predominate, i.e. the subtle substance of mercury, animals and plants perish much faster than minerals and metals. The compounds (mixed) of where mercury predominates, do not have a sustainable lifespan.
Salt or body is a negative principle of the condenser, reactive and coagulating nature. It thickens the mercurial water that dissolves it and fixes the sulfur into the Earth.
It intimately unites sulfur (the mind) and mercury (the soul).
It is the principle of conservation and opposes corruption.
It remains attached to the terrestreties until they are separated by leaching.
It is discovered as soon as the volatile substances are evaporated or exhaled, the crystalline substance remains attached to the terrestretities until they are separated by dissolution and evaporation.
It is then that it presents itself to us in crumbly body, easily reduced in powder which testifies to its dryness. This dryness of the earth that composes it attracts so powerfully the moisture (water) of the air that in a short time it is reduced to liquor, which does not wet the hands.
Salt is purified by fire and then becomes incombustible.
It retains the mind or mercurial steam (which is none other than water, moisture or volatile alcohol from mercury).
It preserves sulphur from combustion. It serves as the basis and basis for the sulphur principle and mercury principle.
It is he who makes the bodies, where it abounds, durable and almost incombustible. For example oak, fern, vine and acacia contain little sulphur (oil) and a lot of salt (body), which is why they are of a long life and symbolize immortality.
Salt is a dry nature principle governed by the elements of earth and water. From it are born the shape and weight of the material and the fundamental color white and yellow.
In Man it corresponds to the body.
By its water, its moist part, the salt exerts a coagulating and fixing chilling action of the cold on the wet. The cold action on the wet thickens and adds to the salt by turning it into water and making saline water a principle of circulation.
By its earthly part, the salt becomes a concentrator and a receptor for the dryness and heat (fire) of the male (the sulphur) with which it unites.
The Earth is characterized by a reactive action of salt on the cold, this is what gives the salt its power of cohesion and clotting.
These three constituent principles are found in water and vulgar Earth that serve as a matrix, a vehicle and a base. Fermentation or fertilization is born in soil and water.
Fire in the work of the generation: it gives spontaneous impulse, it is dynamic principle, it generates movement through its action; the igneous soul is in him.
The Air tempers the violence of fire, harmonizes the movement, measures the action. It fertilizes the land and water from which the putrefaction is born, which always precedes the generation.
The water, which has been volatilized by fire, also falls back to the earth to pick and corrupt germs fertilized by air and animated by fire. Water gives rise to putrefaction in the earth through the action of the air.
The Earth receives the animation of fire by means of the dry and fertilization of the air by means of water that generates putrefaction as in a matrix. The earth is the receptacle of fertilized germs.
The generation is thus born in the earth and in the water both rotten by the air and animated by fire. We have here, the origin of the constitutive principles, which alone directly generate the substance of the mixed, being neighbours of matter.
Obviously all this is a little complicated but perhaps you will better understand it by explaining the analog relationship with the subtle bodies (auras) and the temperaments that compose us because it is not the material that makes the aura but the aura that creates the material and one without the other does not exist.
The ancient texts speak of the halo of the saints; is it not said that when John passed through the crowd, his shadow healed the sick! Isn't science looking for other parallel worlds through the approach of quantum physics.
The difference between subtle bodies and temperaments is that, one is external to Man (around him), and the other is his support, his temperament expressed in his physique.
The auras are 7 (surely more) and each is attached to a chakra or wheel of light that itself animates an endocrine gland. These glands are themselves related to a temperament.
Below is a diagram and a table of matches.
Thyroids and Parathyroids
We will give you an example of reflection on this table which I think will better explain the illness or the pain of living that we all experience at some point in our lives.
Every thought, inspiration, sorrow, emotion, everything that the human being experiences, suffers, shares has an impact on his physical body. If the causal body (fire), our higher soul desires to communicate our way to us, the information will pass through the mental body (air), which after reflection will give the impulse or desire to the astral body (water). Depending on our emotional, the information will be picked up by the upper or lower astral body and will affect our physical body for good or ill, by the endocrine glands. In our body each gland is related to a temperament and if the information is very emotional, then it will be the pancreas, which will be affected but later the lymph. On the other hand, if by an astral body and a well-regulated diet the information has not been blurred but made neutral or dominated by the upper bodies, the reaction will be neutral or essentially beneficial.
But let's give another example with the elements for analogy:
Water (emotional body, pancreas) that is vanished by fire (astral body, thyroid) falls in rain on the earth (physical body, adrenal, gonads) to circulate and corrupt the germ fertilized by air (the mental body, thymus) and, animated by fire, water (the astral body) gives rise to putrefaction (physical awareness) in the earth (physical body) by the action of the air (mental body of reflection).
Try to think and go back a little bit and reread the principles and the elements, changing the subtle words. You will find that the text takes on a different meaning.
We hope to have answered a few questions through these lines, but to say more would only serve to complicate things in so few pages. These are only to bring to a larger number some reflections.
Chakras are at the origin of the materialization of the endocrine glands. The functions and regulation of the endocrine system are guided by the evolution of the Consciousness of Beings.
The awakening of this consciousness induces the activation of one or more chakras.
The 7 physical states, the successive and resulting emotional and mental states, depend on the degree of mental control of the being on the one hand, and the application of automatic endocrine regulations on the other. The latter obey the laws of attraction-repulsion between glands and groups of glands whose understanding is facilitated by the knowledge and understanding of the seven-branched candlestick.
In the seventh state, the Being is concerned only with the instinct of survival, feeling coarse sensual desires and having thought-forms that structure only the organism.
In the first State, it is the development of consciousness, the desires for justice, ideal and the concepts of universal harmony that dominate.
Dualism prevails as long as the mastery of the Fourth state is not present in a lasting way, with its law of love and its search for beauty, altruism and the manifestation of a selfless power to extend harmony.
This evolution is often interspersed with incidents during the adaptation phase following the activation of a centre. The induced disorders are determined by the nature and energy of the corresponding center.
Each Chakras (or center) is related to a divine Ray.
These are 7 Rays and are 7 primordial differentiations of everything that exists. These are the seven spirits who are before the throne of God.

The plant is very sensitive to the vibrations emitted by the planets, two of which are: the Sun and the Moon.
The Sun, essential for the growth of sap, thus represents the water element. The earth element is itself represented by the salt principle as well as by the saline structure of the plant. These are the principles : mercury (principle) and salt (principle) contained in the plant that animated by the 4 elements: earth, water, air, fire, make the plant alive and progress.
As the sap obeys the Moon, some parts can only be harvested in the ascending Moon, the sap being in full activity during the same period: flowers, peaks, leaves, stems.
For the roots it will have to wait until the end of the descending Moon.
It would be possible to pick each plant in accordance with the favorable day and time in conjunction with its main planet, but this would make picking difficult or impossible, because if the sky is too cloudy, if the wind blows or if the rain has fallen, the collection cannot be done.
Each family or plant group, depends mainly on one of the alchemical planets and the planets correspond to a metal as well as a day of the week:
UranusPluto and Neptune have a more subtle but important role.
This engraving, which superimposes the Greek, Latin and Egyptian version of the zodiac, testifies to the fusion of cultures characteristic of the whole development of astrology, with each new phase adding its own discoveries and interpretations (thus the 36 decants that circle the diagram). The study was soon so complex that astrology became a profession in its own right: hence the flowering of the worst and best practitioners. The emperors of Rome, for example, at the same time as consulting their Chaldeans (so called astrologers) on political matters, had to expel the charlatans who abused the credulity of their subjects. (Hieroglyphic map of the zodiac, after A. Kircher, Oedipus Aegyptiacus, 1653).
Pluto, upper octave of :amplitude, spatial motion.
Uranus, upper octave of :direction.
Neptune, upper octave of :rhythm.
Some plants contain more salt, others less salt and more mercury, or more mercury and less salt and sulphur, etc.
This detail is very important. A plant will therefore receive more vibration from one planet than another, this does not mean that a Martian plant will contain more iron but depending on its amount of salt, mercury and sulphur and their quality, it will fix a planetary energy more Martian than Solar.
Let's take an example: the horsetail.

With the Renaissance and its refinements, astrology became even more widespread. The new rich, the commercial aristocracy, came to form the educated class, seizing ideas hitherto reserved for a circle of scholars. The arts and sciences flourished and in this atmosphere of creation and discovery astrology found its place everywhere. Warlords, architects, painters, poets, merchants or sovereigns all used it in one way or another. The world seemed like a cosmic dance, and astrology was the master to dance. Art and science at the same time, it was at its zenith.
Medical astrology developed during the Renaissance. This diagram associates organs with planets and signs, as well as animal, plant or mineral substances that are remedies for them. It also shows the hours of medication. this kind of teaching material was essential for the medical student. (Oedipus Aegyptiacus, by Athanase Kircher, 1653).
Occulte means hidden and this epithet applies to research that surrounds itself with mystery or is by nature incomprehensible to the layman. All human societies have had their occult disciplines, secret paths to spiritual development. Techniques and vocabulary are mostly obscure, both to discourage vain curiosity and to camouflage operations that orthodoxy cannot tolerate. Occultism has a bad reputation. Astrology has had to suffer attacks on its own account and its relationship with other traditions has made it even more vulnerable.
Magic borrowed a lot from astrology. These seven pentacles, each representing a planet or a luminary, mix astrology, Kabbalah and the world of spirits or archetypes. These kinds of evocations are quite foreign to the original spirit of Kabbalah and astrology. In this alchemical diagram, planets and luminaries appear clearly, all centered on the mutable Mercury, a transformative principle. The two-headed bird symbolizes the dual character, active and passive, of the alchemical operation. ("Our Mercury," the source of all transformation, wood, 16th century.)
Each Metal (or planet, zodiac) conveys energy of construction, movement or electricity (detonator), or: salt energy (memory), mercury (movement) or sulphur (electricity).
The human body is surrounded by 7 bodies of light of different frequencies and qualities: every thought, emotion will have an influence on these. A joy, a desire, a thought of jealousy, anger etc... will be automatically printed permanently or temporarily in the layer corresponding to the emotion or thought emitted and subsequently on the gland (or organ) in relation to the physical plane.
We could say that the printed geometric shape defines thought. The color on the shape, the quality, the sharpness of the outline will tell us if it is emitted forcefully. (Example: the square is a concrete, defined form; if it is red, the thought is imprinted with anger; if the outline is blurred, the thought is only transient).
Each body contains in it 7 levels composed of 4 elements and 3 principles, which gives: 7 x 7 = 49 degrees.
The first three bodies are accessible to our human understanding.
Indeed, if we can try to understand the physical body (made up of the dense body and the vital body) as well as the astral and mental body (causal, Buddhist and atmic worlds are out of human thought).
So we will define only 3 bodies with of course an alchemical approach because we could approach them differently.
Each body therefore has 7 degrees in it: the 4 elements (earth, water, air, fire) and the 3 principles.
Each body is ruled by 3 master or archetypal planets, which themselves direct the 7 sub-planes: the 7 states.
