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.
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.
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.
-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.
