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.


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.
