The Hierophant and Individuation

Archetypes of The Hierophant



The Alchemical Stage that this step represents is a Fixation state of the experiment. The stabilising or fixating of a volatile substance until it is no longer volatile and remains, permanent in the fire, to which it is gradually accustomed. This can happen through Calcination, Sublimation and Coagulation, or by adding a fixed sub- stance. This key, then, shows the stabilisation process through the dogma of religious ideals; the fixing of laws, ideals, society, beliefs etc., through its Taurean nature.
