Any member of the family may take on a leading role through exemplary behaviour.
Exaltation: The manifestation of the highest principles in everyday and practical affairs. The possibility of the highest principles in all relationships resulting in a leadership role.
Detriment: A conservatism that generally only accepts the leadership of the father, who may or may not be a valued role model. The possibility of being insensitive to the leadership of anyone other than those accepted by tradition.

This Gate is part of the Channel of Community, A Design of Being a Part Seeking a Whole, linking the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 37) with the Ego Center (Gate 40). Gate 37 is part of the Tribal (Ego) Circuit with the keynote of support.
Gate 37 is the most communal gate in the BodyGraph. When others recognize our power, we can hold both a family and a community together with our warmth, friendliness and nurturing nature. We have an ability to make an emotional connection with others through touch, and an uncommon sensitivity, which senses their accessibility or openness to us. People will want us to be their organization's representative, and to welcome the newcomer or stranger. It is an offer that we might happily agree to if the bargain, or what we receive in return, is sufficient and clearly agreed upon by all parties. Gate 37 is the gate of the mouth so the planning, gathering and preparing of food often play a central role in all our family and community gatherings. In the bargain between Gates 37 and 40, Gate 40 is the willing provider and we are the distributor of its assets and skills. Without Gate 40, we are looking for those who can deliver the resources needed by the community so that we have someone to bargain with, and something to distribute. What we most fear is getting trapped in or having to live up to the traditional Tribal roles.
The Daily View reflects the impact the Sun (70% of the neutrino influence) is having on humanity as it moves through the Gates and Lines of the Mandala. Transits are potentials that you can witness in others and the world around you, and, if correct for you, as you follow your individual Strategy and Authority, may become a part of your experience as well.
