Aquarius and the Cell Salt Natrum Muriaticum
In the realm of homeopathy, where the vibrational energies of cell salts are harnessed for holistic well-being, so too are they paired with a zodiac sign. In this post, we will uncover the celestial secrets of Aquarius and the connection between the cell salt Natrum Muriaticum, and how it shapes our personalities and influences our health.
Aquarius The Water Bearer of the Cosmos
When you think of Aquarius, you may be surprised to know that this zodiac sign is one of air, despite it being depicted as “The Water Bearer.” The word Aquarius, derived from the same root as aqua, meaning water, may also lead to confusion. But, if we look at its symbol, we can get a better understanding.
The astrological glyph of Aquarius, an inverted letter 'm,' is a representation of the ethereal waves of fluidic air, connecting the heavens to the earthly waters. According to astrological experts, those born between January 20 and February 18 are doubly blessed as they are considered to be favored by the Gods.
Plus, depending on how you choose to calculate the astrological age we are in, many consider us to be in the age of Aquarius, this gives Aquarians a double influence of Aquarius vibrations. An influence that will reign for over 2000 years.
How did this sign become to be known as “The Water Bearer?” Let’s take a deeper look into some Greek history.
Aquarius in Greek Mythology: Ganymede and the Waters of Life
Greek mythology introduces us to a young boy named Ganymede, the Cupbearer of the gods, only he didn’t start that way. A simple sheepherder, Zeus abducted him for his beauty. Ganymede ascended to Olympus to live and to serve as the divine Cupbearer and was given the gift of immortality.
Ganymede's role soon extended beyond the heavens; he became the genius behind the fountains of the Nile, which embody life-giving and fertilizing waters. In the celestial order, he is the representation of Aquarius and is viewed as the one overseeing the supply of water on Earth.
His captivating tale shows him as the Heavenly Man holding an urn from which the Water of Life flows. If we look deeper at the cosmic interplay between Ganymede, Aquarius, and the life-enriching waters, we discover how perfectly it sets the stage for the healing properties of the cell salt Nat Mur.
Natrum Muriaticum: The Birth Salt of Aquarius
Commonly known as sodium chloride, or table salt, and often referred to simply as Nat Mur, the cell salt Natrum Muriaticum – administered in homeopathic microdoses – plays a crucial role in the circulation and distribution of water in the human organism. A deficiency in this cell salt can lead to a wide array of symptoms.
In the same way that Aquarius is a Cupbearer and guides water to where it needs to go, so too does Nat Mur work as an attractor and distributor of water in our cells and tissues. In the human body, this translates in large part to the cleansed and chemically perfect blood serum.
Natrum Muriaticum Deficiencies and Aquarius: Maintaining the Body’s Water Balance
A cell salt Nat Mur deficiency reveals itself in various physiological and emotional symptoms. Considering that the body is made up of mostly water, an imbalance of this mineral affects the body's ability to absorb and distribute water properly.
Sodium chloride is the second most abundant inorganic salt within the human body, falling only behind phosphate of lime or cell salt Calcarea Phosphorica. It is a necessary catalyst to hydrate and flush out the body. For example, if not enough fluid is in the tissues, there is a risk of constipation, headaches, migraines, tight muscles, cracking and painful joints, or sunstroke.
Conversely, when the brain tissue contains too much fluid, it causes drowsiness and a tendency to low mood, hopeless, and thoughts drifting away from a task at hand. Further unequally distributed water in the body can lead to edema and swelling in parts of the body, such as ankles and limbs, blisters, or tears running down your cheeks caused by wind.
Another deficiency in this water-balancing cell salt can result in dry skin, dry mucus, dry eyes and mouth. It is an excellent tissue salt to use to hydrate your skin, mucous membranes, and overall body tissues.
Those who find their skin itchy or who suffer from eczema will want to use tissue salt Natrum Muriaticum for relief. If your skin is burning or scaling or tends to discoloration, also reach for Kali Sulphuricum as part of your regimen as these symptoms indicate you may be deficient in both cell salts.
Together with the collagen-producing cell salt Silica, the elasticity cell salt Calc Fluor, Nat Mur and Kali Sulph come as a bundle in our Skin Nourshing Cell Salts Kit.
The water-balancing effect of Nat Mur also supports the flexibility of our muscles and joints. Together with Natrum Phosphoricum it helps relieve acidity in the blood, establish a proper pH balance, and reduce inflammation and rheumatic pain. Ultimately, the symptoms are the result of a water imbalance. That is why we offer Nat Mur and Nat Phos together with organic fresh Turmeric root extract in our Inflammation Response Kit.
Another key Nat Mur deficiency includes hay fever. It’s interesting to note, that although many believe hay fever is caused by the pollen of plants, it's often the case of the vascular linings not being protected because of a Nat Mur deficiency. Those who suffer from hay fever will want to add Nat Mur to their repertoire during allergy season.
Uranus and Cosmic Change and How it Balances the Scales
“As the vibrations of Aquarius possess powerful virtue, influence and efficacy, it is evident that they alter the air and the seasons in a very strange and secret manner.”
- Inez E. Perry in The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation
Aquarius is ruled by two planets, Uranus and Saturn. According to lore, Saturn rules the night while Uranus rules the day.
The cyclical nature of Uranus, influencing change every seven years, mirrors the broader cosmic cycles embedded in the fabric of our existence. Many view this change as the "end of the world" or an apocalyptic scenario.
In truth, it is simply a recalibration of cosmic energies. If we consider the physical aspect of what actually happens, Uranus journeys through Aries affecting the opposite sign, Libra, and thus causes a shift in the earth's balance.
This shift allows for changes to occur including new islands to emerge, lands to be purified and refreshed, and one should even pay attention to a change in their own life. Those who are celebrating a seven-year cycle in their birth years, including multiples of seven, may notice a disturbance.
They should examine all facets of their life including their health, employment, family, partnerships, and more. These disturbances can be both positive and constructive, negative and destructive, and may depend on the individual’s chemical condition, that is their levels of Natrum Muriaticum.
Aquarius, with its emphasis on balance and change, becomes an indication of transformation on both personal and universal scales. It teaches us not to be afraid of change, but to embrace it as a way to grow and achieve balance.
If you find yourself struggling, at an impasse, or spinning out of control, having Nat Mur as part of your routine during this time may help give you the support you need. If you are within the time frame of a seven-year cycle, it is also beneficial to add as part of your wellness journey.
Eccentricity and Visionary Depth, Two Powerful Personality Traits of Aquarius
Aquarians, marked by their birth under the influence of Saturn and Uranus, exhibit distinctive personality traits. Uniqueness, eccentricity, and profound intellectual depth characterize those born under this air sign.
They are visionaries who passionately fight for freedom and idealistic causes, seeing the world as a realm of endless possibilities. The visionary nature of Aquarians aligns with their ruling planet Uranus, known for its abrupt and transformative energy.
Those who fall under this sign share the astral colors blue, pink, and Nile green, and have the gems sapphire, opal, and turquoise. They are often seen as deep thinkers and can easily adapt to change. The body parts associated with them are ankles.
In the cosmic symphony of Aquarius and the cell salt Natrum Muriaticum, there is a harmonious dance between its connection to the Waters of Life and the healing properties of its associated cell salt.
Water is life. Without it, humans and all living organisms would cease to be. Without Nat Mur, we wouldn’t be able to achieve the perfect blood serum that is necessary to thrive. As we have learned, it is a delicate balance and to help keep this balance, it helps to have Nat Mur as part of your Cell Salts Kit.
