SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 6, The Gate of Friction

Gate 6, Conflict - Feeling, Emoting, and Sensitivity

Saturday, September 15th the Sun enters Gate 6.

TRUTH FEARS NOTHING BUT CONCEALMENT ~ Chinese Proverb

Conflict is the driving force of life itself.  Growth won’t occur without friction and  is the very energy that produces life and our movement through life.

Could conflict provide us with an opportunity to see the truth in what we keep hidden or don’t want to face?

Instead of believing our issues are taking place somewhere outside of ourselves, it’s possible that the conflict is actually energy arising inside ourselves. This energy may be arising for us to examine, confront and heal.

We can use conflict to see our reflection in this mysterious mirror provided by contention.

Conflict isn’t about what is on the surface, but rather about the unspoken, untreated, and unhealed wounds we carry.

Whatever is repressed ‘in here’ finds expression in the situations we are caught up in ‘out there.’

Conflict comes to release you, heal you and help you move forward.

Gate 6 is the gate of our pH, and establishes and maintains the boundary between what is outside and what is inside our body.

“This Gate is part of the Channel of Mating, A Design Focused on Reproduction, linking the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 6) to the Sacral Center (Gate 59). Gate 6 is part of the Tribal (Defense) Circuit with the keynote of support.” ~ The Daily View published by the IHDS.


What are Solar Transits?

In Human Design, Solar Transits reflect the impact the Sun is having on humanity as it moves through the Gates and Lines of the Mandala (64 Gates and 384 Lines). Transits are potentials that you may see in others and the world around you, and, may become a part of your experience as well.

Not everyone experiences these energies … and if we do, we experience them filtered through our own unique Human Design.

SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 47 – Gate of Realization

Gate 47, Oppression - Wait for the Moment of Realization

Sept 9 – Sept 15 the Sun is in Gate 47.

Being at ease with not knowing is crucial for answers to come to you. ~Eckhart Tolle

Gate 47 resides in the Ajna … the Ajna’s energetic theme is conceptualizing and concretizing ideas.

While Gate 47 is transiting the Sun, the Earth is in Gate 22 and so we are grounded by Grace. We may have busy, busy minds searching for clarity and yet, if we relax into the deluge of thoughts and images and ideas …. eventually we will find clarity. We will find that AHA moment.

It can be such a graceful process. And, the underlying cause of Grace may offer a message to accept what you can’t change.

This is resonating with me so very deeply right now. Finding grace and accepting what I can’t change.
Releasing everything that isn’t necessary until there is nothing left but the perfection and beauty of what is.

And, although my mind searches for reasons and ways to challenge ‘what is’ … I find my only peace of mind comes from acceptance.

While I may sometimes feel weak inside, this “Oppressive” situation I find myself in is revealing an inner strength. And, that inner strength can’t be shaken because it isn’t dependent on external conditions. I am empowered when I surrender to what is.

SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 40, The Gate of Aloneness

Gate 40, Deliverance - Transition between Struggle and Liberation

Wednesday, August 29th the Sun entered Gate 40.

LIFE IS A BALANCE OF HOLDING ON AND LETTING GO.’ ~ RUMI

Sir Edwin Arnold wrote, ‘Within yourself deliverance must be searched for, because each [wo]man makes his own prison.

The transition between struggle and liberation …
What will you notice, if anything, during this transit about holding on and letting go?

Life isn’t designed to be as hard as we sometimes make it.

Sometimes I make things harder for myself when I don’t set boundaries and over extend myself.

Learning to say no when there isn’t energy for something is a lesson that I continually bump into.

When I keep healthy boundaries my energy isn’t depleted.

Whatever is blocking me from moving effortlessly and joyfully though my life can be disarmed by letting go of expectations or mental stories that distract me from my own authority in my life. A life of living beautifully in the flow of my existence.

The 40th Gate’s biological correlation is the stomach.

This Gate is part of the Channel of Community, A Design of a Part Seeking a Whole, linking the Ego Center (Gate 40) with the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 37). Gate 40 is part of the Tribal (Ego) Circuit with the keynote of support.

SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 59, Gate of Sexuality

Gate 59

Gate 59, Dispersion - Bonding and Intimacy beyond Words

Gate 59

Thursday, August 23rd the Sun entered Gate 59

The potential energy for a deep and fertile connection with the other resulting in a life creating union.

Do you feel a need for deep connection?

Our genetic imperative is to reproduce and to keep the human species viable. And, to keep our species viable, we are attracted to those who are different. Diversity keeps our species healthy.

How do we find harmony and still honor our differences? 

We come together as couples, in communities and groups because of the ways we are similar … and then grow uncomfortable when we face our differences.

However, it is our differences that make us unique and the differentiated individuals that we were born and designed to be.

There will never be anyone like you and only you know what it means to be fearlessly, boldly and unapologetically you.

Open to the ways you are connected to others and don’t be afraid to share everything you are in all of your glorious quirkiness.

Richard Rudd calls this gate “The dragon in your genome.”  This energy can be wildly creative AND wildly destructive. The powerful urge to merge and create.

From IHDS The Daily View:
Also known as the “aura breaker,” it defines the ways we penetrate or break through barriers to intimacy in order to create offspring, or enter into a creative business venture with someone. The 6 Lines of Gate 59 describe the ways humanity approaches bonding as genetic strategies.

  1. The preemptive strike
  2. Shyness
  3. Openness
  4. Brotherhood/Sisterhood
  5. The Femme Fatale or Casanova
  6. The One Night Stand

This Gate is part of the Channel of Mating, A Design Focused on Reproduction, linking the Sacral Center (Gate 59) with the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 6). Gate 59 is part of the Tribal (Defense) Circuit with the keynote of support.


Do you recognize any of the above strategies in your life during this transit? If you don’t have Gate 6 (Solar Plexus) in your design you may have the desire to get creative or intimate and not know when or with whom to get creative or intimate with.

SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 62, Gate of Details

Gate 62

Gate 62, The Gate of Details

Gate 62

SOLAR TRANSITS
Preponderance of the Small – The Gate of Details
Gate 62 (now through Wednesday, July 18)

Be grateful for your life, every detail of it, and your face will come to shine like a sun, and everyone who sees it will be made glad and peaceful.”  ~ Rumi

Is your ability to communicate and explain your ideas, thoughts and beliefs enhanced during this transit or not?

It’s a time when attention to small matters can bring progress … even if resources are meager. Your perseverance can bring form to great accomplishments.

The power of the small is signified by slow and steady progress, and ultimately succeeds.

The wise person recognizes and accepts the nature of the time. Know your role, attend to details and act with humility.

Caution, patience and detail produce excellence out of limitation.

You can achieve success, even with few resources.

Gate 62 is also a cross-species gate bringing the potential to communicate and train animals.

This Gate is part of the Channel of Acceptance, A Design of An Organizational Being, linking The Throat Center (Gate 62) with the Ajna (Gate 17). Gate 62 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 11, Gate of Caution

Gate 11

Gate 11, Caution

Gate 11

December 14 – 20.

Sun is in Gate 11, The Gate of Ideas – Peace

“As humans begin to think once again with our right brains, so we will bring much-needed balance to the world of form. The result will manifest in the world around us as the dominance of the patriarchal forms subsides and the power of the feminine pole comes into balance with the male.

This is the true meaning of the time we are living through. It is why so much ancient tribal knowledge is once again pouring into the collective consciousness of our planet. It is through this 11th Gift that the true art of magic is once again returning to our world. ” – The 11th Way

It is through the darkness that we recognize the light … and Gate 11 brings ideas as concepts designed to express what has been sensed and these possibilities are conceptualized into ideas. We likely remember what we really liked about what we saw, while leaving the rest out. This is how ideas can become ideals, then beliefs and finally belief systems over time.

In the I’Ching this hexagram represents Earth above Heaven. The gravity of matter merges with the upward radiation of light to merge in a condition of deep harmony. This juxtaposition denotes a potential time of peace and blessings for all living things.

Earth is in Gate 12, The Gate of Caution – Standstill

The Suns light is grounded by the Earth.

In our genetic code, Gate 12 is what is called a ‘stop codon.’ Caution or standstill is about being the in correct mood or emotional state to clearly express yourself and your ideas or thoughts. And, when your mood or emotional state is clear and steady, your articulation of your ideas can have great impact.

In periods of standstill, confusion and disorder can prevail … especially when clarity hasn’t arrived. Consider taking your time and quietly remain faithful to your principles and wait for correct timing to share your ideas to have the most impact.

SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 29, Gate of Saying Yes

Gate 29

Gate 29, The Abysmal

Gate 29

Thursday, August 17th the Sun enters Gate 29.

Are you over committing?

When you say yes to others, be sure you’re not saying no to yourself. ~ Paulo Coelho

I have an intimate relationship with this gate. I have Gate 29 twice in my Human Design (in Pluto which is about truth and transformation). This transit brings Gate 29 as a Solar Transit and its energy is potentially powerful.

It’s nicknamed the YES gate and its energy wants to say YES to life! It’s a constant affirmation of life by committing your energy to something or someone new and seeing it through to its natural conclusion.

Before I understood my design I was a slave to the YES. Saying yes to so many things … overcommitting myself on many occasions. I have potential to be a super slave. And when things got to be too much, I would jump out before the commitment reached its conclusion. And, looking back I can see how I got stuck in a loop of repeating the same patterns and traumas by saying yes, when my answer was really no.

Prosperity is linked to clear commitments

For me, my lesson is to learn what to say yes to so that I can carry that yes through to the end. Understanding my sacral response as a Generator gives me the inner authority (tool) to know what is a correct experience for me, or not. This gives you the deep commitment to see things through when the going gets tough.

Even when doubts are raised or things get rough, if you’ve committed correctly you will have the energy to see things through. And, as the experience ends you can look back at the experience and see the rewards.

If you jump ship before things come to conclusion, you may meet the same difficulties again to give you the opportunity to get the correct experience. Have you noticed patterns of trauma or difficulties that seem to repeat themselves in your life? If so, notice what you’re saying yes to in life and if that yes is correct for you or not.

We all have the potential to witness the magic of the 29th Gate during the next days and during the upcoming Solar Eclipse. True commitment can be felt in your body … it’s not a social requirement or morality or something you think you ‘should’ do.

This Gate is part of the Channel of Discovery, A Design of Succeeding Where Others Fail, linking the Sacral Center (Gate 29) with the G Center (Gate 46). Gate 29 is part of the Collective Sensing (Abstract) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 4, Gate of Formulization

Gate 4

Gate 4, The Gate of Formulization

Gate 4

Friday, August 11th the Sun enters Gate 4.

Are you struggling to come up with answers?

Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Gate 4 resides in our mental conceptualizing center known as the Ajna. Its theme applies mental awareness to questions fueled by doubt about the future and it formulates answers.

Each answer is only a potential, which must eventually be tested and substantiated by facts. That means that our answers may be the ones people seek, and they may not be.

We use our mental intelligence and mental awareness to judge what looks suspicious. The pressure of a doubt or suspicion can last a lifetime. Rely on your Inner Authority to ask the correct questions while you wait for the right timing to share your answers.

Ultimately, the answers we formulate are to be applied to questions that come from those around us. Rarely (if ever) can we formulate answers that provide solutions to our own questions about our life.

Understanding and accepting this truth can bring the comfort of letting answers come and go in our mind, until the time is right for one to be brought to the surface by being asked to share it for the benefit of others.

This Gate is part of the Channel of Logic, A Design of Mental Ease Mixed with Doubt, linking the Ajna Center (Gate 4) to the Head Center (Gate 63). Gate 4 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 7, The Role of Self

Gate 7

Gate 7, The Gate of The Role of Self in Interaction

Gate 7

Saturday, August 5th the Sun enters Gate 7. This is the first gate in the Quarter of Duality. This quarter’s theme is “Purpose fulfilled through Bonding.” It’s a genetic drive that’s here to lead us into the future securely by bonding, making more … and ensuring the survival of our race.

The Elected Leader

This is the gate of leadership … the power behind the throne. It’s the embodiment of and essence of leadership that is acknowledged and sanctioned by others. And, this gate is in the G Center (our identity and direction) the essence of one’s identity is what is being recognized and invited to lead.

Leadership is determined by genetics, but quality of leadership is determined the frequency passing through those genetics. And, every truly virtuous deed by human beings represents an upsurge in the consciousness of the totality.” ~ Richard Rudd in The Gene Keys

This is our logic’s gate of direction. Our direction is affected by evaluating and altering our existing direction or catalyzing a new direction entirely. This leader’s guidance rests on the ideal of service. We serve each other by trusting in life’s process rather than forcing matters by taking control. This leadership promotes team harmony by guiding the energy of the group itself.

This Gate is part of the Channel of The Alpha, For ‘Good’ or ‘Bad’ the Design of Leadership, linking the G Center (Gate 7) to the Throat Center (Gate 31). Gate 7 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

SOLAR TRANSITS: Gate 33, Gate of Privacy

Gate 33

Gate 33, The Gate of Privacy

Gate 33

Sunday, July 30, the Sun enters Gate 33.

The Revelation of Secrets

Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.” ~Margaret J. Wheatley

Retreat marks the end of a cycle, and built into all endings is a moment of silence for considering every aspect of the experience. This gate is one of the three stop codons in our genetic code.

What potential mysteries may be revealed during this transit?

Retreat arises in that moment of uncertainty between a completed experience, and a new one, as you pause to reflect on what has happened, determine what to take forward, and renew your strength. It is in these quiet moments of contemplation that your most valuable lessons will come to the surface, and allow you to reveal its truths.

Like the Prodigal, you mature over a lifetime, and your realm of influence expands as you move through each cycle of experience.

It is our nature to share the lessons of experience and reveal its truths. The experience can be one of our own, or another’s, or even that of a group of people; the process is the same. When the time is ripe, we will be asked to share our wisdom, which then becomes part of the greater community and humanity’s evolving consciousness.
