The Daily View


Gate 9 - The Taming Power of the Small

Gate of Focus - Focus Empowers the Entire Process

Potential can be fulfilled through detailed attention to all pertinent aspects. Logic demands determination and continued experimentation.

This Gate is part of the Channel of Concentration, A Design of Determination, linking the Sacral Center (Gate 9) to the Root Center (Gate 52). Gate 9 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

Gate 9 acts like a funnel, focusing Gate 52's enormous power to concentrate on what is meaningful and worthwhile for us. The frequency carried in Gate 9 is a diligence for detail or an ability to focus our energy. So much about our logical success as a species depends on conserving precious energy by paying attention to the details. Those who carry this gate have the determination to focus the passive but powerful energy pouring out of the Root Center in one place. With Gate 9's Sacral capacity to persevere, we can focus our attention for long periods of time on all the detailed aspects of a project or issue, and properly test or assess the formulas. All of that can be shared with the Collective or applied to our own life.

Without Gate 52, however, we may not be able to sit still long enough to concentrate. Our own lack of determination can become a source of frustration for us. When clear and focused, our aura may facilitate the efficient use of both physical and mental energy in those near us.


Line 4 - Dedication
Regardless of the pressures or stress the disciplined attention to detail.

Exaltation: Right action that leads inevitably to actualization. The power to act on the potential of the focus.

Detriment: The persistent urge to want to skip essential steps. The drive for action that ignores the details.


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.
