🜔 Relating to Body. One of the “tria prima” three primes or three supernals according to Paracelsus. Considered to be the principle of inertia, stability or non-combustibility. Salt is the tendency of the Source Consciousness to crystalize the archetypal potencies into manifest forms for the purpose of giving life and beingness to the ideations of the divine mind. In combination and balance with Mercury it manifests forms that embody symmetry and harmony, and through the multitudes of diversity it creates, maintains orderliness and cohesion with the primordial unity. Out of balance it replicates distortions, crystalizing errors that lead to instability, and destruction.
