Series: Voices of the Throat #2 – Gate 62

This series explains the energy of each Gate around the Throat Center so you will know how to communicate effectively and authentically as YOU.  For each gate, we’ll cover the circuitry of the gate, its gifts and challenges, its “voice,” and practical ways to apply this information. The Introduction to this series can be found here.

Series: Voices of the Throat #2 – Gate 62 “I Think”

Circuitry:

Every gate energy belongs to particular circuitry within the chart, which is like an electrical circuit board.  This circuitry shows the evolutionary role of the gate energy and how the energy moves through the chart.

Circuitry of this Gate:

Circuit Group:  Collective
The Collective Circuit Group serves the greater good and our collective values. It shares information, opinions, experiences, solutions. It is not personal.

Circuit:  Understanding/Logic
The Logic Circuit energies use patterns to understand our world and predict future outcomes.

High Expression of this Gate:

If you have the Gate 62 defined in your chart, you have an eye for detail and are good at organization (though this may be selective—you may not be organized in all areas of your life, just in some). You are able to communicate complicated information with logic and clarity, and fascinate others with your knowledge.

You can usually function quite well within organizations, and you may love to sort, label, assemble, and organize things.  You can be quite methodical and may love to test things and synthesize the results.

Language itself is seated here in Gate 62. You speak with authority when invited to share your gift for details.

This is also a gate energy that connects humans with animals and has led to their domestication and training.

Low Expression of this Gate:

You struggle with keeping track of details or with getting and staying organized.  You get mired in the “weeds” and may “fail to see the forest for the trees.”  You also may bore people with unnecessary information.

Since this energy is projected (not connected to any of the motor centers), you must wait for the right timing to share your knowledge, or else people won’t understand you or appreciate what you say.

Your Voice with this Gate:

This gate uses the words, “I think…”

If you have this gate defined, it’s appropriate for you to say those words often and apply logic to your thought process. You are designed to use your “gift for details” to explain information and to convince.

Tips for This Time of Year:

-Use your capacity for details to organize holiday activities, research your purchases before making them, and plan for 2019.  Of course, always follow your Strategy and Authority to take action correctly.

-At parties and family gatherings, only share details when asked or encouraged.

-Notice your emphasis on “logical thinking” and make a little room for “sensing” and “knowing” which are other valid ways of having awareness.

 

Next gate moving clockwise around the Throat Center:

Gate 23, with the Voice “I believe.” If you have the 23 defined, start noticing how often you say that or find yourself saying, “I don’t believe…”

Look for Gate 23 details in the next post in this series.

Series: Voices of the Throat #1 – Introduction

This post begins a series that explains the energy of each gate around the Throat Center so you will know how to communicate effectively and authentically as YOU.

The words we choose in speaking and writing influence what we express, the impact we make, and how others perceive us.  Our words set the tone for our own baseline “vibe” as well as our interactions.

When we are authentic in our communication, we speak from the core of Who We Are and express a coherent alignment of our energy.

That’s when things go better and flow better.  That’s when we speak our truth.  That’s when we impact the world around us in ways that are correct for us and, ultimately, correct for everyone else.

What Are “Voices of the Throat”?

Each gate energy connected with the Throat Center indicates a particular approach to communicating—a specific way of expressing yourself.

For example, Gate 62 says, “I think.”  Gate 35 says, “I feel.”  Gate 23, says “I know.”

When you have ANY Throat gates defined (colored) in your chart, using the “voices” of those gates when you speak and write will allow you to communicate authentically for YOU.

Even if you don’t have a particular Throat Gate defined, it’s useful to understand it because:

  • The people in your life may have it defined, and knowing THEIR authentic voice will help you in your interactions with them.
  • If you are around someone who has that gate defined, you will take in and amplify that energy.  So even though you don’t carry the energy of that gate consistently, so you will experience and possibly express that energy at times.  Remember, we ALL experience ALL of the chart!
  • When planets or other celestial bodies are passing through any of the Throat Gates (transiting), you will likely feel those energies and may notice those around you expressing them, too.

Why Now?

The reason for offering this series now:  to help you through this holiday season and into the New Year by fully expressing your Authentic Self!

December is traditionally a time of socializing, often with family, friends, and community gatherings. Have you noticed the conditioned expectations and set behavior patterns that develop over time in our interactions?

Paying attention to the gates of the Throat – how we express ourselves, how others express themselves, and how we each contribute to the collective experience – can help us speak, listen, and react in positive and constructive ways.  The holiday season can be emotionally charged and stressful at times.  Awareness can help diffuse or completely avoid unpleasantness and misunderstandings.

Plus, few things will help you get 2019 off to a great start more than knowing Who You Are, speaking your Truth, and expressing yourself authentically.

Bottom Line

These energies—the Voices of the Throat gates—affect the way we communicate with our world, and armed with this knowledge we can consciously leverage them to our advantage.

For simplicity, we’ll start with Gate 62, at the top left corner of the Throat Center, and go clockwise around all 11 gates of the Throat, one gate at a time, over the coming weeks.

 

Learn about the next gate, Gate 62 here >>

Hint:  the Voice of Gate 62 is, “I think…”  If you have the 62 defined, start noticing how often you say that or find yourself saying, “I don’t think…”

Quick Tip: Buckle Up! Super-Speed Energy Almost Here

Each year at this time (late November), there is a powerful transit that bathes the entire planet in super-fast Manifesting Generator energy.  A transit is a set of Human Design gate energies activated by the constantly moving planetary bodies.  Transits happen everyday, all day long.  Some are more impactful than others.

This transit, with the sun in gate 34 and the earth in gate 20, activates the 34-20 channel which is the archetype of the Manifesting Generator. Manifesting Generators are the fastest processing and functioning type of all the Human Design types and, when defined by the 34-20 channel, that MG is the fastest of all the MGs.

So, what does this mean for us right now?

Starting tomorrow, Thursday, November 22, 2018 (Thanksgiving in the US), at approximately 6:30am Eastern Time, we all can benefit from this powerful surge of available energy!

Gate 34 is the gate of power and Gate 20 is the gate of the “now.”  Together, they flow the Sacral Center’s potent workforce and life force energy directly to the Throat Center providing “motor energy” for communicating and making things happen in the world.

This is BUSY energy.  The busiest, in fact.

This transit will last until approximately 8:00pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, November 27.

How might YOU feel this energy during the transit?

If you have an undefined Sacral Center (you are a Projector, Manifestor or Reflector), you will likely feel an increase in energy available for getting things done.  This can be good news, especially around Thanksgiving when there is often a lot to do!

This energy can also feel exhausting, so pay attention to your body and what it needs.  You may need extra naps and rest time.  Whatever you do, pace yourself and don’t overdo it.  This energy isn’t yours.  You’re just “borrowing” it and experiencing the flavor of it.  You don’t actually become a Manifesting Generator.  You just may feel it temporarily.  (By the way, not everyone feels it.  If you don’t feel it, don’t worry about it!)

If you have an defined Sacral Center (you are a Generator or Manifesting Generator), you may feel an increase in your energy for making things happen.  This is the initiating energy that gives “manifesting” to the Manifesting Generator types.

You may feel a turbo-boost in your ability to communicate powerfully and get things done.  You may get super busy!  But it’s still not YOUR energy, so pay attention to how your body feels and don’t overdo it.  You can get exhausted by this energy, too.

If you already have the 34-20 defined in your chart, you might feel an extra surge of energy but you’re probably already so busy that you may not even notice it.  😉

For all of us:  this transit gives us a brief, golden opportunity to turbo-boost our “doing-ness.”

Now that you know about it, you can plan for and wisely leverage this temporary gift of powerful energy.
