Gate 15 is all about accepting and loving all types of human conduct (or at least learning to). It’s about being aware of and accepting the many ranges and extremes. That is why I have a diverse group of pals. People who are “strange” appeal to me. I enjoy folks who are unpredictable. I enjoy being in the company of “regular” people as well. That’s how I was raised and how I grew up. I learnt to accept a variety of behaviors, cultures, and settings. I also learnt to be at ease with all of the many extremes. It’s a major part of who I am as a person.
But first, let’s take a peek at the 6th House. That is all about self-improvement, routines, and health management. Mine lands on 1455′ Leo, which is Gate 7 of the Identity Center. This is known as the Gate of the Self’s Role in Interaction (I know, it’s a mouthful). The main point is this: “Looking forward is a form of direction. Influence-based leadership.” This is ironic because the way I set up my routines (and approach my health) is inextricably linked to my ability to “look forward.” I’m constantly planning for the future. As if I were playing Chess, I attempt to look 2/3 steps ahead at all times.
I am always trying to develop myself in some way since I am future-oriented. I’m constantly attempting to manage myself, my health, and my life in such a way that I’m always thinking about the future and attempting to steer myself toward the future I want. The remaining half of Gate 7 focuses on leadership. I like to set an example, so everything I do in terms of my routines, health, and personal development is an attempt to do so. I want people to do the right thing for themselves, so I have to BE AN EXAMPLE and practice what I preach.
As you can see, looking at your birth chart using the Placidus House System and applying the Gates to each house can be extremely beneficial. They can tell you a lot about how you approach that particular aspect of your life. It’ll also help give more particular information on the planets within that house, too. Human Design and Astrology are almost inextricably linked. Together, they can teach you A LOT. So learn to use em!
In Human Design, what are the gates?
Is it necessary for us to learn about our gates? Absolutely! Learning is a good thing to do. When learning about gates, or really any component of our Human Design chart, there are a few things to keep in mind!
WHAT ARE GATES?
Energy enters and departs our Human Design chart through gates. The gates are laid out in accordance with the planetary activations indicated to the right and left. If one of your activations is a number, that gate will be defined.
The gates are all the black and red lines:
In Human Design, what is Gate 35?
This Gate is part of the Channel of Transitoriness, A ‘Jack of All Trades’ Design, which connects the Throat Center (Gate 35) to the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 36). Gate 35 is a section of the Collective Sensing (Abstract) Circuit, which has the theme of sharing as its central theme.
Gate 35 is motivated by a restless curiosity and lofty goals to explore new horizons for the mere thrill of it, but not alone. “I feel,” says Gate 35’s voice, and what it usually feels is a need for change. This is the impersonal, relational experience’s voice. We are spurred ahead by a need for depth of sensation, which is conditioned by the emotional wave, rather than by consciousness. Desire and curiosity, like hunger, can only be suppressed for a short time. We are more concerned with gathering experiences in order to learn from them than with repeating them in order to master them. Wisdom and advise are manifestations of mastery.
Our memories may bring us more pleasure than the actual experience. Our need for new experiences, as well as our want to see what or who is on the other side of the mountain, can keep us fit and attentive. When we enter into experience for the purpose of experiencing it and remain objective observers, our clear sharing has the power to reshape humanity. We are prone to seeking an emotional rush in the goal of escaping the pain of boredom when there is no new experience to delve into without Gate 36, and without it, we are prone to seeking an emotional rush in the hope of escaping the pain of boredom when there is no new experience to dive into.
In astrology, what does 23 degrees mean?
If you have any planets in the Zodiac between 22 and 24, you should be aware that Mars is concentrating a lot of energy in this small area. Uranus, the planet of electricity, surprise, and lighting, is at 23 Aries, and this is the degree where Mars is due to station in the coming weeks, so 23 is extremely engaged.
Mars is the planet of violent action retrograde; he acts in a different way, but the effects can be just as disastrous. This week, we’ve seen two powerful examples of this in the headlines. In her birth chart, Jo Cox, the MP who was murdered in the street yesterday, had Chiron (wound) at 23 Aries, which was squarely opposite Uranus (shock) at 23 Libra. Omar Mateen, the Orlando shooter, has his Sun at 24 Scorpio and Mars at 23 Aquarius (community).
Meatloaf, the artist who collapsed on stage yesterday, has transiting Mars Rx on his Jupiter (24 Scorpio), the planet of excess, which is at the top of his horoscope (in the public eye or “on stage).
There is also a lot of force in conceding during a Mars Rx. Bernie Sanders has dropped out of the presidential race in favor of Hillary Clinton, but by doing so, he is advancing his cause. In his natal chart, he has Mars Rx at 23 Aries, opposite Venus at 22 Libra. He’s a capable companion. Senator Elizabeth Warren, the left’s fantasy candidate who could be nominated by Clinton for Veep, also has her North Node on 23 Aries. And what about Hillary Clinton? This is a watershed moment for her, with the South Node in Scorpio at 23 degrees. She will, however, need to change course and acknowledge Sanders and Warren.
****Correction: Bernie Sanders has not abandoned his presidential campaign. It’s more that Clinton’s lead has grown. (As of the 20th of June.) What is clear is that he will continue to contribute to the argument. He must be regrouping right now. It’s possible that becoming President is less essential than guaranteeing meaningful change. *****
When used correctly, this energy can cause a significant shift in direction. Mercury (communications) is in an easy trine to Mars Rx for Chris Murphy, the US Senator who filibustered for 14 hours this week to create place for anti-gun legislation. His message was designed to safeguard his country and his country’s children, both of whom are cancer victims.
At 24, Mars is travelling rearward through Scorpio at a very slow pace. Mars will reach 23 in a few days, then station here and turn straight on June 30. Mars, on the other hand, will remain on the 23rd until July 11th. When Mars goes direct in Scorpio, his own sign, a lot of energy could be released.
Uranus, the planet of explosions, surprises, and energy, is in 23 Aries at the same moment (Mrs Cox was having her Uranus Half-Return). Ceres, the nurturing asteroid, will soon join Uranus in this constellation for the last week of June.
Mars Rx is trining Chiron (25) from Pisces, a sobbing sign. There are a lot of tears being shed right now.
The Full Moon at the Solstice is expected to be particularly powerful. At sunset, both the Sun and the Moon will be visible in the sky, regardless of communication polarity (29 Gemini-Sagittarius). This may herald a war of words (which we all know is already underway), but it also signals that now is the time for communication and discussion, as well as exchanging ideas, listening, and gathering information. It’s possible that the action will go horribly wrong.
If you have a planet in Cancer or Pisces at 23 degrees, you have an easy way to bring that transforming energy forth. The energy is more dynamic when you have anything at 23 Fixed or Cardinal.
In astrology, what does 14 degrees mean?
In natal charts and predicting, the middle degrees are important. When a planet is situated between 14 and 16 degrees of a sign, it looks to be fully immersed in the sign’s raison d’tre.
Activated gates are what they sound like.
Gates can be found within each Center. Gates can be thought of as entry and departure locations for communication between the Centers. A Gate (colored in) that is activated by a Planet (describes a recurring theme or role in your life).
The BodyGraph contains 64 Gates, which correlate to the I’Ching’s 64 Hexagrams. Each Gate includes six Lines, which provide further information about the Gate’s function.
A Human Design Chart can have a maximum of 26 activations, which means that out of a total of 64 Gates, 26 can be active. It is, nonetheless, typical to have many activations in the same Gate.
In Human Design, what is Gate 19?
This Gate connects the Root Center (Gate 19) to the Solar Plexus Center as part of the Channel of Synthesis, A Design of Being Sensitive (Gate 49). Gate 19 is part of the Tribal (Ego) Circuit and has a support theme.
Gate 19 satisfies two fundamental human needs: the desire for basic resources like food and shelter, as well as the need for spirituality. These requirements prepare us to engage or bond with people in particular ways. When everyone has enough to eat, a place to live, and a deity to worship, we live as one healthy community, supporting one another and contributing our individual talents to the greater good. When our tribe is in need, or when there is a lot of inequity, communal support breaks down, and nothing works. We’ve come to be aware of which resources are being withheld from our family, community, and, eventually, the entire world. We raise awareness among others about the resources required for everyone to survive, thrive, and realize their own or collective potential. The method we use depends on the line(s) described in our chart, but it usually entails persuading or bargaining with people or institutions who share our ideals and hold or control what is required. We know what is required, and we look to Gate 49 to meet those requirements. Oversensitivity, an addiction to being wanted, or personal neediness are all side effects of directing the Root Center’s pressure inward “Isn’t it true that no one cares about me? When will my requirements be met?”
