Gate 12 - Standstill

Gate of Caution - Releasing Awareness in the Proper Spirit

The quality of restraint and the importance of meditation and inaction in confronting temptation. The power of cultural mutation is the mystery of Standstill.

This Gate is part of the Channel of Openness, The Design of the Social Being, linking the Throat Center (Gate 12) to the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 22). Gate 12 is part of the Individual (Knowing) Circuit with the keynote of empowerment.

The articulate, mutative and moody voice of the Individual is restrained in Gate 12 by a natural caution. This caution keeps us silent until our mood tells us that we really do have something to say, as well as a unique, transformative way of saying it. The vocal vibration or tone of our voice speaks louder than our choice of words.

Standing still, or contemplating a unique perception or feeling until in the mood to express it in a creative way, through poetry or music for instance, gives our message time to mature. Those who carry this gate have their greatest impact on others as a "stranger of consequence;" like a performer, they translate and creatively express the joys and sorrows of loving and living, and then withdraw. When we are not in the mood, chances are our audience won't hear what we want them to, or will not experience the transformation or inspiration that interacting with us can bring. Impeccable timing maximizes the potential impact we can have on social/cultural norms, and on our way of being with each other in the world. We know how to express ourselves, but without the 22nd gate we can't always clarify what it is we are feeling.

Line 6 - Metamorphosis
Faith in, and energy applied towards change and the emergence from standstill.

Exaltation: Creative transcendence that when connected to the Harmonic Gate 22, through the channel of Openness, leads to successful mutation and the emergence of a new social form. The capacity to mutate and express new social forms.

Detriment: A retrograde metamorphosis that has evolved a perfected adaption to standstill. The perfected adaption to caution that can accept social limitations.

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.
