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.


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.
