Gate 27, Gate of Caring, Nourishment

Monday, April 22nd the Sun enters Gate 40.

This transit brings us the energy of caring and nourishing. At its highest expression this is the energy of compassion for others … and remembering that self-care comes first.
It’s usually easy to have compassion for those we care about. But how compassionate are you with yourself?
Consider finding something that nourishes your soul and brings you joy. Then, love yourself enough to make room for it in your life. Being full of joy can nourish everyone around you in the very best way.
There are so very many ways to nourish yourself and others … good food, loving touch, kind words … the composer of an inspiring piece of music also provides nourishment — to humanity in general — by caring deeply and offering their creativity to the world.
So, how do your thoughts shape and nurture your experience of life?
Can you look inside yourself to see if your thoughts affect what’s happening outside of yourself?
Do your thoughts focus on the belief that life is working for you or against you?
What we think about colors the environment we meet. This may be a time to examine your motivations, thoughts and actions so that you can move in sync with what you want to create to nourish yourself and be full of joy.
Smile and watch how the world responds.
Be open to life’s benevolence and allow it to fill you.
Love Yourself.

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.

Gate 27 is a Sacral Center gate and has the pure and creative life force of the center at its disposal. The power to care for yourself and others is available when the timing is correct.
