Series: Fear Gates of the Spleen #4 – Gate 57

Once a year there is a cycle in which the sun activates each of the gates of the Spleen Center, also known as the “Fear Gates of the Spleen.” Knowledge about each of these gates will help you understand the energy as it transits and also help you master the energy if it is defined in your Human Design chart.

Gate 57 – Fear of the Future or the Unknown

—Timing of the Transit

This gate is being activated by the sun from October 8 through October 13.


Gate 57 is connected to the Spleen Center and is part of the Individual sub-circuit called Knowing and also part of the Integration Circuit.

Called the energy for Intuitive Clarity, this gate is the most intuitive and insightful energy in the chart.

—High Expression

—The highest application of this energy is to connect with instantaneous intuitive awareness.  This gives you clear guidance about what is healthy and correct for you, and what is not. 

Gate 57 is subtle and can communicate in a variety of ways, so it helps to “tune” into yourself to notice those quiet insights.

Low Expression

Although the insights, clarity, and intuitive “hits” are there, it’s possible to not notice them, override them, or confuse them with your mind’s input.

—Potential FEAR

-Fear of the future

-Fear of the unknown

—What This Means as a Transiting Energy

While the sun is transiting Gate 57, you may find that you are more intuitive about what is going on around you and what is correct for you.  You’ll feel it as a flash of insight.

You may also feel hesitant about moving forward or taking specific actions because you’re afraid of what might happen… or what might not happen.

This fear of the unknown can be paralyzing and can keep you from taking correct action.  You then may get tangled up in imagining various scenarios of what could go wrong, which could further paralyze you.

—What To Do

-Know that it is just energy and that this too shall pass.

-Be patient with yourself and your fears (and the fears of others).  Those fears are just trying to keep you safe.

-Know that we are all in the same situation—no one knows for sure what will or will not happen in the future.

-Listen for that quiet intuitive awareness that occurs in the moment.

-If F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real) is stopping you, take a deep breath and push through it.

-If your intuition leads you to feel hesitant, you may want to trust that intuitive guidance and wait.  When the sun transits out of Gate 57, check in again with your intuitive sense.


The next fear gate is Gate 32 – Fear of Failure.

    Thank you Evelyn for this gem of information. I have gate 57 active in my chart (I have the whole integration circuit) so I imagine this will intensify the transit for me.
    I am dealing with making a big decision about medical intervention for something I have going on that is likely to worsen if left. Both options available to me trigger some fears but I am pleased to say I have been dealing with it very logically today by meditating on each option to connect with how I feel and write down fears/ questions for the consultant. So it’s great to then read this article which confirms I am using the time wisely. I will take your advice and check in again once the transit has passed.
    Thanks loads 🙂

    Dear Evelyn, Thank you so much for this providing all of us with this extra-special content. I am enjoying getting a closer look at my conscious and unconscious spleen gates and the fears associated with them. I’ve always wanted to know more about the transits as well but had not studied it. I so appreciate this gift!

    Thank you Evelyn.
    This series really helps to go through these 7 weeks in a more manageable way. Clearly, a lot is going on.

    Hi Evelyn,
    I have gates 18, 48 and 57. This has me paralyzed in my business. Thank you for this insight, I now know this is energy not past childhood trauma. I think I can move forward now

      Great comment. Thank you! I would have not connected the dots on energy and how easily awareness can help vs the unshakable childhood trauma scenario. If I have anything I have awareness. We got this!
