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.


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.
