Phosphorus: highly flamable

A person who is affected by Phosphorus is energetic, outgoing, hyperactive, sociable, affectionate, hopeful, extroverted, intelligent and refined and a lover of friendship and being in the company of others.

They are usually emotional, seek the company of others and enjoy doing favours for everyone.

On the other hand, they can also enjoy being alone and taking part in artistic projects.

They become tired, irritable, sad, melancholic, anxious and easily scared.

The Phosphorus individual is hypersensitive to their environment and feels emotionally vulnerable if their environment is hostile.

Everything that affects the Phosphorus personality (energy, conscience, emotions…) can be compared to the lighting of a match.

At first, there is a strong energy, the flame lights up and glows until, in time, the energy starts to dwindle and finally extinguishes. Sleep helps them to recover.

Behavioural timeline

When the Phosphorus person is unbalanced, they go through a series of phases in which fear and anxiety can lead to pessimism.

Their rhythm of life is fast, interrupted, alternating, variable and related to their susceptibility to tiredness.

They alternate between periods of sensorial and intellectual excitability and periods of depression accompanied by shyness and anguish.

Their appearance is usually tall, slender with a narrow thorax, delicate skin, hands and feet. Their skin is usually white and freckled and they are usually blond or red-headed.

The Phosphorus child is warm, extroverted, sensitive and imaginative with artistic or musical tendencies. Teenagers grow quickly and they posture is easily hunched.

When they are unbalanced and in the first phase, they can sometimes develop an anxiety that is only soothed with comforting words.

The symptoms are physical, with regular haemorrhages in the form of nosebleeds, prolonged periods or internal bleeding.

They feel burning pain in their shoulder blades, enjoy cold drinks, cold savoury foods and crave chocolate and sweets, which can make the Phosphorus person an ideal candidate to develop diabetes.

The physical symptoms improve but their emotional state can deteriorate – fear and anxiety can develop.

They become intensely preoccupied with their health and develop many fears (loneliness, darkness, thunderstorms, ghosts, twilight…)

Over time, the anxiety increases, they become obsessive about their health. Sleep loses its restoring effect, leading to tiredness upon waking.

They start to believe that something bad is going to happen. They feel panicky, frightened by an imminent death. This fear is magnified when the patient feels lonely and in need of company.

In extreme cases, their state of mind deteriorates and they are unable to concentrate, process thoughts and understand what is being said to them. As body and mind deteriorate, the Phosphorus individual can become senile.

Personal characteristics

They crave cold drinks and food, salt and salty foods except for salted fish and oysters. They are hungry at night time. They are easily bothered by noises, smells and light.


The main indications are: prevention of haemorrhages before an operation, nose bleeds, a tendency to lose blood, excessive tiredness, mood instability, viral hepatitis, acetone… Phosphorus individuals can have a proclivity towards vascular complications in diabetes and cerebral vascular accidents.
