This Gate is part of the Channel of Judgment, A Design of Insatiability, linking the Splenic Center (Gate 18) to the Root Center (Gate 58). Gate 18 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

Gate 18 enjoys discovering, naming and challenging what needs correcting. When we experience dissatisfaction with something, chances are it has lost its vitality. Underneath this dissatisfaction lies a deep concern for human rights, and for what will keep society healthy and in harmony with itself. Those who carry this gate have a gift of critical awareness that directs them to the source of a weakness or imperfection, and focuses their thinking on ways to correct or modify or replace it. It is our way of cleaning out what isn't healthy, or restoring vitality to something that has been corrupted. Our gift is enhanced by impartial discernment, and logic's drive to perfect or fine tune our own skills of critical analysis.

Ushering in a new understanding through identifying what needs correcting is the by-product of the process. Gate 18 also represents the fear of authority and the challenge to that authority. As a Collective gate, it is designed to point out what needs to be corrected at the Collective level, but when used at the personal level it tends to backfire. Without Gate 58's joyful fuel for correction, our dissatisfaction can become merely a constant source of fault finding. This is especially true if our valuable and crucial awareness is no longer productively focused on situations, patterns or institutions, but rather on people's idiosyncrasies and foibles.


Line 1 - Conservatism
The adherence to traditional patterns despite and/or in spite of changing circumstances.

Exaltation: Gradual modification to avoid eventual upheaval. The potential to correct through gradual modification of judgments.

Detriment: The Patriarch whose rigidity guarantees deterioration. The potential to refuse to correct.


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.
