Gate 6 - Conflict

Gate of Friction - Feeling, Emoting, and Sensitivity

The fundamental design component of progress. The law that growth cannot exist without friction. The energy for producing life itself.

This Gate is part of the Channel of Mating, A Design Focused on Reproduction, linking the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 6) to the Sacral Center (Gate 59). Gate 6 is part of the Tribal (Defense) Circuit with the keynote of support.

Gate 6 in the Solar Plexus Center generates all three modes of emotional awareness: feelings, moods and sensitivity. This is a powerful motorized combination on a wave that is designed to create friction. This friction produces the heat essential for growth and fertility, and is aimed at Gate 59. The friction created by those with this gate when they step into another person's aura is a mechanic. If (or when) the conflict is resolved, or resonance is reached, there is then an opening and intimacy can proceed. Until there is such an opening, we must wait, as readiness and fertility are both subject to the emotional wave.

Gate 6 is a kind of diaphragm that either opens up to intimacy or closes. It is the gate of our pH, and establishes and maintains the boundary between what is outside and what is inside our body. In this way it determines who to be intimate with, when, and the bonding role we will play. Each time we feel drawn toward intimacy, let Strategy and Authority be our guide. Each gate in the Solar Plexus carries a fear. The fear associated with the 6th gate is the fear of intimacy, which is why Gate 6 looks to Gate 59 with its ability to break down the barriers to intimacy.

Line 6 - The peacemaker
The discipline and integrity of a superior force to unilaterally cease conflict to permit surrender and survival of its foe.

Exaltation: The highest form of reason is that life is sacred. The emotional power to end conflict tempered by feelings and sensitivity to others.

Detriment: The peacemaker whose actions are just but whose terms are unacceptable. The emotional power to end conflict but only after one's conditions have been satisfied.

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.
