HD Gates and Channels - Understanding Circuit (Collective)
Terms in this set (21)
Logic. This is the initiating sequence of logic. If you were to trace the scientific process from its inception to completion, the 63/4 is the inspiration for the creation of a hypothesis. The Channel of Logic starts in the Head with a question..."Can this be true?" Followed by a need for proof that is demonstrated throughout the rest of the circuit and eventually shared. This is a highly visual channel and also associated with dreaming and sometimes, insanity. The pressure to prove and the ensuing suspicion can be challenging if the Head Center is undefined.
Doubt. The Gate 63 contains the inspiration for logic. The 63 on its own is full of doubt and suspicion followed by a demand for proof.
This particular gate can have some interesting challenges built into it. Doubt and suspicions are energies. And like all energies in the Human Design chart, they flow, almost reflexively. People with the gate 63 will have a tendency to be doubtful and suspicious of everything, including their own insights and abilities. Although, this is valuable process for logic, this can be a difficult personal energy. The doubt and suspicion expressed by the 63 is intended to be pointed towards information not towards people or towards yourself. When you see the 63 combined with the 48, a first line profile and an open Head and Ajna, you have a potent combination for mental paralysis and deep interpersonal inadequacy. Remember, these are collective energies and not at all intended to be expressed towards the self. The purpose of these energies is to correct the expression of information in the world. The other aspect of this doubt is recognizing that the doubt in the head is just a thought or idea and not necessarily true. It takes time to justify suspicion and doubt. You need proof. When you are out in the world freely expressing doubt and suspicion, is it usually met with resistance.
Doubt is better left in your head until you have the data and you are asked to share.
Answer. The answer to what you may wonder. It doesn't matter.
It's just the answer. Answers come from the Gate 4 without a lot of regard for validity. Validity is located in other parts of this circuit.
Remember, this whole channel is about generating a hypothesis. Doubt leads to a possible or potential answer. As we move deeper into the circuit, we come up with the theory and what need to be proven over time. The answers we experience in the Gate 4 are merely possibilities.
People with the Gate 4, especially with an open Head and a first line profile will be under pressure to come up with an answer. Answers can sometimes just "plop" out of this person's mouth. Just remember, that answering is simply an energy. Just because someone has an answer
doesn't make it right.
Acceptance. Gives voice to the initiation of the logical circuit.
This is the verbal formulation of the logical hypothesis or question.
Note that this is still a question. There is no energy in the mind and the speakings of the mind are just ideas without energy. As with all things spoken from the Ajna, it is projected and is only heard and acted upon correctly when invited or recognized. Hypothesis without proof is purely conjecture and opinions. Unsubstantiated ideas that can be experimented with once recognized but resisted mightily when not asked for. The struggle of Logic is for energy. All energies within this circuit do best either in response or through recognition. Without these key activations, ideas are just word carried away on the wind. The flow of the 17/62 takes us from speculation and conjecture in the Gate 17 to a practical answer in the Gate 62. Note that it is still only a possible answer, not THE answer. No energy or action here. Opinions are formed in this part of the circuit. This can be a difficult energy if you have it in your chart. We like to share opinions. But not everyone wants to hear them. If you absolutely have to share your thoughts, always ask first if it's okay to share them. It can soften the impact of this energy significantly.
Opinions. The energy of logic is mastery over time through correction of patterns. The Gate 17 is the first corrective energy we see in Logical Circuitry but it is really an illusion. Without energy for proving and mastery over time, the Gate 17 is just opinions. This energy can be really hard for people to carry, especially if they are not good at waiting for people to ask. The Gate 17 just plops out those opinions, not always recognizing that opinions are just ideas. Without the recognition, the opinions are often energetically repelling and the giver of the thought ignored. Logic has resistance built into it. It isn't about beliefs. You don't have to prove beliefs. Logic demands proof. The Gate 17 is merely proposing an idea and when people with this gate can learn about the beauty of their idea instead of acting with certainty that their thought is correct, then they can play their part in creating collective mastery. The Gate 17, the Gate of Opinions, in its lowest expression is all about blurting out opinions. Just like the Scientific Method, there is doubt and a need for duplicable proof in the circuit. The Gate 17 correlates with the part of the Scientific Method that is about setting up a hypothesis. The highest expression of the Gate 17 is the expression of an opening for a new possibility or a new pattern. With the energy of the Gate 17 we launch new ideas, ideas that are still to be proven. It's an energy of curiosity, not certainty. Of course, we all know what the low expression of the Gate of Opinions is...right? Just remember, opinions are best heard and shared when they are asked for...
Details. The Gate 62, like the Gate 17 has ideas but, because we are now connecting to the Throat Center, the potential for access to energy improves. The Gate 62 is the gate of practical, organizational answers and people with this energy have the capacity to organize things and provide practical ways to implement the energy of the Gate 17. People with the Gate 62 usually have very neat closets and filing systems. They are organized. Even if they don't look organized, they know where everything is. This is the energy for details, the small details that keep the momentum of opinions flowing towards energy.
The Gate 62 asks, "What if we did it like this? What if we put this over here and place all the files in this basket? Then would we be able to create an organizational pattern?" This is the gate of the computer programmer or the professional organizer. The 62 always has a practical experiment going. This is the energy for creating the structure and application of the experiment. The 62 determines the statistical tests to be done, what equipment to use and how to log the data.These are really practical people. The Gate 62 is the energy for articulating plans and ideas in an organized, logical manner. The Gate 62 connects the energy from the realm of possibility to the Throat Center and creates, through articulation, the possibility of manifestation.
Talent. Here we bring the intuitive expression of logic to the throat. Notice, again that this channel has no direct access to energy. That means that talent and mastery have to be recognized by others when the timing is right. Talent is expressed through practice over time but talent also struggles for resources and money because it has to be seen to be supported. The arts are always hungry for money and support. This is why shows and exhibitions are important for artists of all types. They have to be seen. This channel represents the intuitive expression of talent blended together with repetition over time. Talent is raw and undeveloped without practice. Everyone has some kind of talent. The question is are you willing to practice to become a master? Mastery happens over time. The energy for enthusiasm and depth is contained in this channel. There is right timing in this channel. Do not express the depth with enthusiasm until you are ready...you have practiced and achieved mastery...otherwise you look silly.
Skills. The Gate 16 is the energy for communicating with enthusiasm the correct expression of mastery, but only if it comes into connection with the Gate 48. On its own, the Gate 16 is enthusiasm without depth. This is the "just do it" gate. The Gate 16 will just do things, and figure out the details later. The good news is that the Gate 16 is usually imbued with natural talent and can often "get away" with the superficial expression of talent it carries. But, without the Gate 48, the 16 lacks the depth of mastery and intuitive correct expression. The Gate 16 leaps and then looks, hopefully there is luck in the chart otherwise we have a crashed "house of cards"...the Wizard of Oz without the curtain. The Gate 16 gives us the energy to leap out of bed and get truly excited about our creative endeavors. This is the gate of skills, not so much depth, so there is youthfulness in our excitement. We still have much to learn as we master our creative process but, like the Fool Card in the Tarot, every journey starts with an excited first step.
Depth. The Gate 48 is a splenic fear-based gate. The fear of the 48 is a fear of inadequacy. The Gate 48 is afraid that they will never know "enough". The challenge with the 48 is to "just do it", even if you are scared. This is a splenic fear Gate and the fears of the Spleen are in the "now". When you push through the moment, the fear dissipates and the 48 can then begin to collect data over time to prove that they do, indeed, know enough. This is definitely one of the "getting stuck" Gates. The fear of the 48 feels very real, even though others observing it may find it amusing. Usually people with the 48 are way over prepared for everything. The 48 is also the Gate of Taste. This can be taste from a designers perspective. The 48 is sometimes called the Interior Design Gate. People with the 48 have an intuitive understanding of beauty and design and long for things to be designed with taste. It is also the Gate of physical taste. People with the 48 can have elaborate palates and desires for rich culinary experiences or they can be very picky eaters, especially if they are children.
Judgment. Can pose some serious challenges to those who carry this energy. First of all, notice that this channel is way far down in the chart and has no access to the throat. And also notice that this is one of the energy Centers in this circuit (the Root). One of the challenges of Logic is getting the energy to the Throat. This is why Logic is so tenuous...it has to be proven over time and meets with resistance until it stands the test of time. The Channel of Judgment is purely projected, meaning it serves best when others ask for it. It contains the intuitive and energetic ability to make things correct in order to create a perfect expression of the Joy of Life. Imagine how hard it must be to watch others doing things in less than perfect ways, when you know exactly how to make it more correct and you can't say anything to fix it unless you are recognized or asked! This energy can be exceptionally challenging, especially if you also have the energy for opinions (Gate 17) in your chart. This energy is also exceptionally difficult for Projectors. The bottom line of this channel is that in order to be heard and for you to have the platform to correct in a "correct" way, you MUST wait for recognition if you have this channel. If you do not wait, then you run the risk of being perceived as critical by others and no one likes to be criticized. The beauty of this channel is that the correction in the 18 leads to the 58, the Joy of Life. When the 18 waits to be recognized, they clear the path for the perfected expression of the Joy of Life,
the Root result of the Logical stream.
Correction. The intuition to make things perfect. This is also a splenic gate so there is no thinking here, just intuitive understanding. And, of course, fear. The fear of the 18 is that nothing will be perfect and, as with all splenic gates, the potential here is for someone to shut down because they'll never "get it right" or others will "never get it right". The 18 can feel harsh, especially if it is not recognized. There is no motor connected to the 18. The energy has to be recognized and call out by others. When it is asked for, it is brilliant and vital. We need people who can "fix" things and know how to make them better. This is the gate of the Editor and the Accountant. They can find the perfect pattern and bring it out in a powerful way. This is the gift and the curse of the 18. And, of course, because it is intuitive, and closely located to the Root, often people with this gate feel pressured to share their correction. And people either react poorly...or they don't listen.
Sometimes we call the Gate 18 the "See...I told you so....Gate".
Joy of Life. People with this gate always have a smile on their
face, if they live their strategy. These people intuitively understand the nature of Joy and don't tend to take things too seriously...except Joy. However, it they are not living their strategy, people with the Gate 58 can take a big beating in their Joy of life. This is a dual system, after
all. This is Joy...or not. People with the 58 can be some of the most bitter people on the planet. But that bitterness comes from understanding the potential for joy and not being able to experience it. The Joy can be restored by living strategy and waiting for the right timing for correction. The ultimate beauty of this energy is that it stems from the energy of mastery and correction. All that critical energy that we've been talking about in the Logic circuit is all about helping people
discover joy. It's really so simple.
Focus and Concentration. This energy is a format energy of the Root. It pulses "on" or "off". This is the energy for focus and concentration or not. When the pulse is on, it adrenalizes the Sacral and things get done. When the pulse is off, it may seem challenging to learn and master. This channel is the beginning of the flow of energy up the middle of the chart. Now we are headed to expression through Life Force (the Sacral to the Throat). The Logical process has been proven, now we are dealing with the energies of applying the Logic with the collective.
Remember, this is about sharing with the group the hypothesis that is true or the talent we have mastered. Focus and concentration is the ability to take the understanding and apply it into action. The next 3 channels are about "doing" logic in groups. The Focus and Concentration of the 9/52 is about learning and doing repetitively so that patterns can be established as collective behavior. This is the energy for reading about experiments in books or research journals and duplicating and applying the results in life.
Stillness. The energy of this gate is the potential to sit very still and concentrate. Sometimes you might call this gate the "Couch Potato" Gate. People with this energy have an ability to sit very still and quietly for long periods of time. The irony of this gate is that without its harmonic, this is just sitting still without focus. Concentration but with no direction....sometimes demonstrated by an ability to sit for long hours doing nothing. The 52 makes for great wild-life photographers....you can sit in the blind forhours just watching and waiting, as long as you don't get distracted. You really need both gates to create a collective experience for learning. It's always good when you get both gates together in a group who has the objective of learning. This is a highly creative energy. one that empowers us to concentrate on the goal, hold our gaze, wait in stillness until there is right timing and then, only then, take right actions.
Detail (Focus). Whenever you see this in a chart, you know there is always to capacity for obsessive behavior and thinking. To a certain degree, the 9 will amp up all the energies of a chart, especially if the energy makes it to the throat and isn't split off. The Gate 9 has the ability to focus, but not necessarily concentrate. This gate is a crucial player in ADD-like behavior. With the Gate 9 you are focused but you are constantly moving, staying focused but not concentrating. If you have this energy you may often seem obsessive to others, as if you can't let an idea go. With the Gate 9, it's true. You can't let it go. You can think about it no matter what you're doing. You just might not be able to stop and concentrate on it, unless you find someone with the Gate 52. Both Gates are crucial for learning and taking Logic into collective behavioral patterns.
Rhythm. This is a tantric channel, a channel of energy that gives direction (G-Center) to Life Force (Sacral). The Channel of Rhythm is an energy that we share with many living things. It is the energy of the rhythm of nature itself. If you think about the natural world, it has rhythm built into it. The natural world is ruled by rhythm. Electricity and other inventions of modern life have liberated us from natural rhythms. But, possibly, with consequences that will affect all of humanity. This energy is about aligning humanity with nature. If we step away from the natural order, humanity stands a chance of suffering. The archetype of the chart begs of us to exert our free will but to remember that we are deeply tied to the natural world. We cannot override the forces of nature. People with this energy usually have a deep connection to nature and animals and need this connection to find direction for their spirit. If you have this energy, going outside can often help you stay calm and clear. This is especially true for children. People with the 15/5 need rhythm to feel secure. Rhythm gives direction to the sacral and to work force energy. People with this energy also have an unusually large aura and stand out energetically. They get noticed. This is important because, ultimately, this energy is vital for the sustainability of mankind. Because this energy is so deeply tied with all mammals and nature, people with this energy can often communicate with animals, use plants and herbs and can even have a deep tie with the elemental kingdom. This is a magical energy; the archetype of fairies, gnomes and elves. People with this energy are often staunch environmental activists seeking to align the collective with natural order.
Patterns. The Gate 5 is deeply rhythmic. People with this energy need and like routines. When you have the 5, you like to have a regular routine. It's vital that you maintain this routine in order to feel effective and to feel good. You may find that you need a consistent routine every day and that if your routine gets interrupted, you have a hard time getting your day going. When you respond, as a Generator with this Gate, you will respond to opportunities for work and sex that are rhythmic. The Gate 5 likes routine, even intimacy and work that has a pattern, consistency and a rhythm.
Extremes. The Gate 15 is a powerful, multi-faceted energy. The Gate 15 is the Gate of extremes, extremes in rhythm, particularly. People with the 15 are always trying to find their rhythm, but it changes all the time.
If the 15 can find a consistent rhythm, it will be different and extreme. This can sometimes make relationships challenging, especially if a person with the Gate 15 is in a relationship with a person with the Gate 5. People with the Gate 15 have a big aura. They are usually aware of it and try to hide. They can't. The aura of the Gate 15 walks into the room before the person actually does. Everyone really is turning around to look at you! The Gate 15 is the Gate of the Love of Humanity. The rhythm and flow of the 5 leads to the 15...the expression of love for humanity when it is aligned with the rhythm of Life Force. The extremes of the 15 can lead to extreme measures on the part of the 15 to take care of and love humanity. This can be a martyr Gate. Hopefully it is paired with the 10 so that it can also be about empowerment. This energy not only gives us a deep connection to our Divine Siblings, but it also ties us to the natural world. It is the energy for nature, flow, animals and the elementals. The energy here clearly shows us that our fate and the fate of the natural world are inextricably intertwined. When we work with the 15th Gate, we are called to ask ourselves what contribution do we seek to make to the world and to our Divine Siblings? Where do we have rhythm and where do we need to adjust our rhythm to be more "in the flow"? What does the natural world seek to share with us and do we need to align ourselves more with
Alpha. Here we have the final expression of logic, democratic leadership. The leadership here has to be recognized or it is not effective. This is not dictatorship or extreme rulership. This is leadership
recognized by the people based on its demonstration over time of its effectiveness. The 7/31 will be called out by others. This is a leadership energy that is a result of a group of people agreeing to rule themselves. The ultimate expression of humanity in groups is democracy. If someone with the 7/31 tries to force leadership, then you have a revolution and a new regime that is not logical - it has not withstood the test of time and consequently has to start over with
logic and "prove" itself to be effective - otherwise it will be subject to being overthrown. It is a profound thing to see that the highest expression of self-determination in the collective circuitry is democracy and helps us understand that all people eventually want the freedom to govern themselves in a way that is egalitarian and fair. This isn't just a philosophy or a belief. Democracy is perfectly and beautifully human.
Role of the Self in Interaction. The Gate 7 and the 31 have to work together. The 7 provides direction and support in leadership to the 31. Because it is designed to support the leadership, the not-self Gate 7 often struggles to try to take leadership but, usually without much success. The Gate 7 makes tremendous peace with itself when it realizes that it is here to serve a leadership that is bigger than itself. The Gate 7 needs to commit to service and leadership that is for the greater good of the whole. Neither the 7 or the 31 alone can provide leadership. The 31 without the 7 has a leaders voice but no direction. The 7 without the 31 struggles to be heard. These are energies that have to be recognized and are, by nature, truly democratic in their highest expression. You cannot force leadership with this energy. It won't last. People with either the Gate 7 or the Gate 31 are recognized as natural leaders. It is quite common for them to be put into leadership roles by a group. That is where they are supposed to be.
Democracy. Here we have natural leadership that must be recognized in order to be effective. This is the expression ofdemocracy...leadership that has been proven effective over time through repeated applications of theory. This is the final expression of the Understanding Circuit, leadership based on mastery and repeated truths. People with this energy will naturally be recognized as leaders but cannot assume leadership without recognition. Their leadership will not be effective without the recognition of the collective. Again, this is leadership that has to be recognized and serves best when it seeks to serve the
people. The best question to ask yourself if you are working with this energy is, "How may I be of service?" Let the group you are leading tell you how they want to be led. This is the real secret to being an effective leader with this energy. You are simply the figurehead for the group. Serve the group. Unify it and be ready to delegate and share the power.
