Gate 17, Opinions - Following
The Sun is transiting Gate 17, Gate of Opinions – Following
OPEN YOUR ARMS TO CHANGE BUT DON’T LET GO OF YOUR VALUES. ~ Dalai Lama
As we exit the energy of the higher self and our direction in life, the cosmic energy brings us face-to-face with the potential to question the patterns (thoughts, beliefs, ideas, habits) around us.
In the circle of life, the only thing that’s constant is change. Old patterns, old thoughts, old beliefs and old ideas can be re-examined and discarded, if necessary, to make way for fresh, new and innovative ideas.
When we stay open to question the thoughts, beliefs, ideas and habits in our lives (and in the world around us) we create the potential for new energy to emerge that will make the world more beautiful.
We may not be able to change the direction of the wind, however, we CAN ADJUST THE SAILS.
Will we bend with the wind, adjust our sails and arrive at the intended destination?
Gate 17 governs the right eye and scrutinizes what it sees. This energy belongs to the Collective Understanding Circuit and its understanding is for the benefit of society. What do we see that could be improved? How can we make things better or safer as we move into the future?
Should this pattern or opinion you notice be accepted or rejected?
What do you notice in yourself, those around you and the world during this transit?
Do you like what you see?
Are old values, ideas and opinions being challenged?
Are our leaders serving us?
Is your career or job serving you?
Do you have a good balance between work and rest?
Or … is it time for some old thoughts, beliefs or ideas to be replaced by new ones.
The grounding energy during this transit brings potential intuition about what can be corrected, or not, to better serve us all. You may have a heightened awareness around what isn’t working and what you could bring into your life and the lives of those around you to bring more joy.
Is it time to let go of what isn’t serving you?
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.
