Clavicle is the other word for collarbone.

Clavicle comes from the words clave, which means key, and the suffix icle, which means small. This, in turn, means that clavicle is the small key.

The clavicle is part of the shoulder, the core joint of the upper limbs, thus forming part of the scapular waist, which is the masculine waist in each of us, the yang axis, the masculine axis, the axis of willpower, symbolised by the Father.

Collar bone fractures represent a shock at the level of deep beliefs when it comes to taking action, and, at the same time, an enormous relief of the tension the person was experiencing. They normally occur at a dynamic moment. It is the result of the major undervaluing the person experienced in his ability to deal with a professional issue, or with a money related issue, with a very well defined objective, in other words, with a typically yang, masculine issue.

Due to the fact that the clavicle is the small key, clavicle associated problems indicate that the person affected is having difficulty discovering the key to a question. It is a déclic.

Any problem in the clavicle is related to bones. And the person’s undervaluing shows up in the bones. Therefore, a person suffering from collar bone related problems is having a problem in his relationship with someone, and is failing to assert himself, given the fact he has been unable to find out exactly what he should do.

This person cannot live his life in a straightforward, fluid way, and he tends to provoke war and consider the other person the guilty one.

Therefore, the body, through the fracture, forces the person to discover in that relationship the key to his life. This person is thus forced by his body to drop his warier attitude and realize that he is also responsible for the problem and that he should take his life forward independently from the other person.

It is important to see which of the clavicles is affected, because the right side is yang, masculine, and the left side is yin, feminine, both for right and left-handed people. This yang right side and yin left side polarity is not always obvious. Therefore, it must be approached with caution. The affected yang side denotes relationship and lack of firmness in dealing with problems in the case of a man, and the affected yin side indicates relationship and lack of firmness in dealing with problems in the case of a woman.
