The Metal-Planet Affinities
By Nick Kollerstrom

ĎA type of symbolism which can be traced to sources much more ancient than any we have for alchemy is the association of metals with the planetsí - F .Sherwood Taylor, Origins of Greek Alchemy, Ambix I p46.

Do metals have a being or essence that is in tune with the power of a specific planet?
We shall here re-examine this core alchemical concept.



The Sevenfold Pattern

   Silver / the Moon

   Quicksilver / Mercury

   Copper / Venus

   Gold / the Sun

   Iron / Mars

   Tin / Jupiter

   Lead / Saturn



   Plutonium / Pluto


A sister website: www.anth.org.uk/science/Kolisko examines

whether these traditional associations can work today.
