Master Huang refers to this gate as “shake, shock or quake”. In the I Ching it’s the quintessential symbol of thunder. In the Human Design chart it’s in the Heart Centre. This is the mediator between this world and the next, the place where we transform higher energies into emotions and shift emotions into the love dimension. In the fiery grip of transformation, we look for continuity. What needs to spiral upwards? What needs to be maintained through being properly grounded? What needs to be released?
In this place of rapid transformative process we are balanced, like the phoenix, bringing forth new life from the flames. Every apparent ending brings forth new life and the thread of your existence is unbroken. You are new again and again and again. Occupy that space in your own life and you’ll find your freedom there.
Mars will be in the Gate of Initiation (51) until 8th April 2013. It will be joined by the Sun and Venus on 6th April. I’ll write more about this process shortly. We are entering a 8 week period of radical shift. Breathe, stay grounded, be gentle with yourself.
