Gate 31 - Influence

Gate of Influence
I Lead

The law of friction, whether active or passive, that engenders transference and thus influence. The natural expression of leadership.

Right Angle Cross of the Unexpected 2 | Godhead - Maat

Line 2 - Arrogance

Independent action without guidance.

Exaltation: The dedication to higher principles that cannot wait for consensus. Leadership that cannot wait for consensus.

Detriment: A reasoned arrogance that out of nervous tension jumps the gun and often misfires. The drive for expression that cannot wait and may cost leadership.

Gate 56 < Gate 31 > Gate 33

This Gate is part of the Channel of The Alpha, For 'Good' or 'Bad' a Design of Leadership, linking the Throat Center (Gate 31) to the G Center (Gate 7). Gate 31 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

Gate 31 is designed to be influential. Collective leadership is collegial, not hierarchical. It provides the vision for a new direction and shows others how to achieve it, rather than doing it for them. The 31st gate manifests its potential for verbal influence through election. When money is the energy used to move a person into a position of power, instead of the cooperative will of the people, the Collective's overall ability to ensure humanity's future is easily perverted. Our voice through the 31st gate, "I lead," is not heard until backed by the energy of the majority. The people are the ones who must act on what our voice says.

The influence of our vision for society will not be transferred or felt without the Collective's energy moving it into the public realm. Our leadership must take into account the desires of our followers, and address the good of the whole. 'I lead' means influencing others, for good or for ill, by effectively transferring our vision for a new and test-worthy pattern to them to carry out. Without the presence of Gate 7, we may seem like just an empty voice.

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.
