Friday, August 17th the Sun entered Gate 29, The Gate of Saying Yes, The Abysmal. The Sun stays in this delicious energy until the middle of next week.
I have Gate 29 (Line 1) twice in my design in Pluto. This is where Truth and Transformation over a lifetime resides. I believe that one of my life's lessons is to learn when to say YES and when to say NO. And, when I commit correctly, to allow myself to take the journey without expectation of where it will lead.
Gate 29 is part of the Channel of Discovery ... and discovery is about the journey, not the destination.
When life nudges you toward transformation, you can refuse, although events will likely take you there anyway. When you are swept away by life's current, you have the opportunity to discover how life opens you to self-discovery.
In the wisdom of Kabbalah this nudge is called "Correction." It is a signpost, or a call, to rise to the challenge and evolve.
I'm going through a particularly difficult situation right now and I've been contemplating the gift or "Correction" of having to face it.
This transit reminds me to say yes to life, yes to the journey, yes to the experience of self discovery.
From the IHDS's Daily View: Gate 29 - The Abysmal, Gate of Perseverance Energy to Persevere Despite Circumstance
The deep within the deep. Persistence despite difficulties has its inevitable rewards. Discovery does not lie in the commitment but in the process.
