Take root, prepare. Transformation. Strengthen communication with the God or Goddess who seems closest to you.
Zinc is the metal of magical revelation. It appears innocent and ordinary in its physical state, but on the other levels zinc is an extraordinary event with powerful transformational properties. One of the most fascinating metals to work with in energy magic.
The metal zinc is associated with the planet Uranus. According to medical astrology Uranus rules the potential of the nervous system, the rhythmic processes of the nervous system and the lower extremities. If these processes don’t work properly they can cause agitation, nervous excitement, restlessness, panic and irritation, a great mobility, spasms and cramps, stammering, rhythmic disorders in for instance the heart or nervous asthma.
The renowned Dutch naturopath Mellie Uyldert states “all restlessness body and soul, which is caused by an electric charge that is too high, can be calmed down by zinc.” And the homoeopath E.B. Nash teaches: “What iron is for the blood is zinc for the nerves.”
Uranus is the only planet with a divergent rotation axis; in astrology Uranus is connected with renewal, moderation, revolution, originality, progressivity. The god of heaven and cosmos Uranus granted man the divine flame (electricity, intuition, sudden insights) and the feeling for cosmic rhythms. In fact Uranus gave man cosmic consciousness, and in the realization of each and everyone having a divine core …freedom, equality and brotherhood were born.
Aquarian people connect with like-minded people no matter their background or differences, and they are led by their intuition instead of outward authority. Aquarians are quick-witted with a lot of (electric) brain activity, like inventors, advanced technicians.
Medical astrology places the potential and the rhythmical processes of the nervous system under Uranus. Zinc as metal was discovered in the same timeframe Uranus was discovered. Everyone (equality!) could buy objects of this material because of its low price.
Magickal uses of zinc:
Use zinc in rituals, spells and amulets promoting originality, relying on flashes of insight, renewal, inventions, advanced technics (computer, space-ships), cooperation within a like-minded group, humanism, freedom, moving out of stress.
A zinc pendant or little zinc plate on a necklace – or a zinc supplement – can calm down a surplus of electricity. Possible symptoms are: nervous stress, restless legs, nervous asthma, hyperventilation, stammering, nervous heart complaints, epilepsy, cramps, agitation.
For the same reason eat food with a lot of zinc, like whole grains, fish, meat, eggs, nuts and beans. Or drink water in which a piece of zinc has been laid for 6 to 24 hours.
