The Daily View


Gate 36 - The Darkening of the Light

Gate of Crisis - Wait for Emotional Clarity

The rule of cycles in which decline is a natural but not enduring stage. Action without awareness leads to emotional crisis. A shift of feeling is the end of a cycle.

This Gate is part of the Channel of Transitoriness, A Design of a 'Jack of All Trades', linking the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 36) to the Throat Center (Gate 35). Gate 36 is part of the Collective Sensing (Abstract) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

Gate 36 is the place where our fears of vulnerability and inexperience (emotional and sexual) are resolved or transformed into experience; where we create and meet the challenges of change and growth through emotional crises. As we gain emotional clarity over time, we learn how to handle emotional crises created by others, and we create less of them ourselves. Gate 36 restrains the strong hope-to-pain wave that drives human experience toward change. Its energy is aimed directly at the Throat Center, which means that the full range and depth of our emotions are being readied for manifestation. All that is needed is someone or something to trigger their release.

Without Gate 35 to provide a proper outlet or give a focused direction to this energy, it can be experienced as a personal crisis. We learn over time to remain steady by patiently adapting to constantly changing feelings. These feelings can prove to be wonderfully stimulating and natural for us to express, or overwhelming to us and uncomfortable for others. Either way let them unfold, as this is how we reach for our emotional depth in order to access our own truth. Without Gate 35, feeling inadequate and unable to fulfill our own expectations makes us nervous.


Line 6 - Justice
The inevitable survival of right.

Exaltation: The knowledge and attendant faith that the powers of darkness eventually destroy themselves. 'Those whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.' The correctness of crisis when it arises out of pure feelings.

Detriment: A profound sorrow and cynicism, that is not diminished by the understanding, that darkness is self-annihilating. The sorrow or cynicism that comes with seeing that despite the correctness of the feelings, there is always crisis.


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.
