Total Solar Eclipse – Working of the Stars in Earthly Substance

Reading and listening to the chatter on the web about the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse on August 21 st , I haven’t seen or heard any references to the pioneering work of the brilliant German scientist, Lili Kolisko For decades, she performed thousands of experiments with metallic salts to visibly demonstrate the effects planets and their cosmic alignments have on Earthly substances. The energetic changes that took place during previous total solar eclipses were impeccably recorded and have important relevance for the eclipse we will experience next week.

The ancient alchemists knew the “seven sacred heavenly bodies” were each ruled by a specific metal that linked heaven to earth – the sun (gold), Moon (silver), Mercury (mercury), Venus (copper). Mars (iron). Jupiter (tin) and Saturn (lead.). We have forgotten most of this wisdom because current science has isolated itself from the impact of the constant cosmic forces streaming in from the heavens. Luckily, we have the pioneering work of Lili Kolisko. who by using exact scientific methods, was able to create a qualitative scientific method for observing the influence of the etheric forces in substance, Her research created a invaluable scientific bridge between the qualitative, etheric sciences and the quantitative, materialistic sciences of today.

She said, “True Science will lead us to the acknowledgment of spiritual facts. The unison of Science, Art and Religion must come in the near future. Scientists must arise who are at the same time endowed in their souls with the qualities of an artist and a priest. Science must again become a holy Art, if an unholy natural science is not to lead mankind to destruction.” Kolisko

In the 1920’s, Lili attended a lecture Rudolph Steiner gave to a body of natural scientists about the relationship of earthly metals to the planetary bodies, Steiner said,” So long as Substances are in a solid state, they are subject to the forces of the Earth, but as soon as they enter the liquid state, the planetary forces come into play.” This means, that solid gold, or gold salt is subject only to earthly forces, but if it is dissolved in a liquid solution, it is subject not only to the forces of earth, but also to the planetary forces of the Sun. Something to reflect on here – our physical bodies contain all seven of the heavenly metals in solution! Gold is centered mainly around the Heart!

This lecture inspired her to scientifically prove if what Steiner was saying was true or not. To Kolisko, this teaching suggested that during certain planetary alignments, such as a conjunction, an eclipse or some other significant relationship with another planet, the usual behavior of the corresponding metals might be altered.
