This series explains the energy of each gate around the Emotional Solar Plexus Center so you can learn to harness your natural passions and creative energy to manifest the life you desire. For each gate, we’ll cover the circuitry of the gate, its gifts and challenges, its “passion,” and practical ways to apply this information. These points hold true whether your Solar Plexus Center itself is defined or open. The Introduction to this series can be found here.
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. Each Circuit Group has two Circuits within it.
Circuitry of this Gate
Circuit Group: Tribal
The Tribal Circuit Group is concerned with survival of the tribe. It provides support and protection for family and community and transforms individual ambition into teamwork. This is group energy in which the good of the tribe/family comes first.
The Ego Circuit energies govern the structure of how we function in groups, including laws, values, business agreements, marriage, families, communities, and management of resources. It contains emotion, but no logic (that’s in the Collective Logic circuitry).
High Expression of this Gate
If you have the Gate 49 defined in your chart, you have strong principles especially those governing relationships and you are willing to start a “revolution” and turn relationships upside down if your principles are violated.
The revolutions and disruptions you are willing to create are principle-based, not knee-jerk reactions, and you will make radical changes if warranted. This gate is sometimes referred to as the divorce gate. If an important line is crossed in any relationship, you will reject the relationship and move on.
Because this gate is connected to the Emotional Solar Plexus Center, your principles can be affected by the ups and downs of emotional energy (even if your Solar Plexus Center is undefined), so you need constant and effective communication in your relationships to ensure clarity. You also need time for clarity to emerge, although once you are clear, change can be abrupt.
This is tribal energy so the highest expression of this energy relates to honoring the principles and values of the tribe and finding your place within the tribal hierarchy. Issues that result in revolutions and even war usually revolve around resources that serve the tribe; this would include relationships with the potential to produce offspring for the tribe’s sustainability.
Those with defined Gate 49 energy value loyalty and expect to be obeyed! You also may be very sensitive to and feel connected with animals, especially mammals.
Low Expression of this Gate
If your Gate 49 is defined, you tend to see life and relationships as either/or, black or white, with nothing in between. “You’re with me or against me, there is no middle ground.” While this keeps things simple, the reality is that there are plenty of “grey” areas in life and it may be appropriate at times to compromise on some of your principles.
You may struggle with navigating that middle ground and with knowing when and how to negotiate and compromise. As a result, you may quit too soon or stay too long in a relationship, and even avoid intimacy out of fear of rejection.
In the lowest expression, this energy can be violent in its rejection of others and its revolutionary zeal. You also may fear the unpredictability of nature and of animals.
Passions of this Gate
With your Gate 49 defined, you have a passion for standing up for your principles and creating social change and reform through principle-based revolution.
This energy also relates to courtship, intimacy, and the principles and values that define marriage. So, you have a passion for romantic relationships and the process of “wooing” a partner.
The best way to fulfill your passions is to be very clear about which principles are so important that you are not willing to compromise them.
Tips for Using this Energy
-Be aware of your “all or nothing” perspective and think ahead about lesser issues on which you might be willing to compromise. In other words, get your priorities straight and clear.
-Take a little time to explore the principles and values you were raised with, and then look at how your own have evolved over time.
-Get very clear about your non-negotiable agreements and boundaries in your most important relationships and communicate them clearly and lovingly. It’s important that your partner, family, and friends understand where you stand and the consequences of breaching those agreements or boundaries.
-If you are in a not-yet-formalized romantic relationship, focus on romance and courtship, and also discuss each of your important principles for a long-term relationship.
