The holders of this Gate do not have a fixed rhythm in life: they cover the whole spectrum of different tempos and extremes. They thrive when there is diversity around them, and they need to constantly stay flexible rather than fixed in long-term patterns.
This Gate represents the acceptance of the vast diversity of all life forms, which symbolizes love for humanity. Such people have an innate magnetism due to their ability to accept the extremes of others without judgment.
These are the Aura Gates that amplify the power and attractiveness of the Magnetic Monopole - therefore they can be called "magnetic" personalities.
If the 5th Gate is not consistent, the 15th is often uncomfortable with fixed rhythms and routines and more difficult to achieve true mastery.

Lines — six stages of development of this energy and possible extremes in its manifestation:

Line 1
Duty. The ability to confront any challenge without expectations.
Venus exalted. Harmonic relationships which give support for the fulfillment of any task. The capacity of the Self to confront any challenge through extreme and harmonic relationships.
Mars in detriment. Alienation engendered through exaggerated claims. The capacity of the Self to alienate others through extremes.
Line 2
Sun exalted. Modesty and right action result in enduring standards. The capacity of the Self to accept its extreme nature as correct.
The Earth in detriment. Where the Sun's actions are natural, the Earth's are contrived, though given the power of this position, the same effect can be expected. The capacity to use the extreme nature of the Self to influence others.
Line 3
Ego inflation. The risk that modesty once recognized will self-destruct.
The Earth exalted. Where the otherwise negative contrived modesty is here reinforced by recognition and maintained as an effective strategy. The extremism of the Self as strategy to control the flow.
Mercury in detriment. The 'I told you so' mentality. The capacity of the Self to point out the extremes of others.
Line 4
The wallflower. Modesty as a shield against exposure of inadequacy.
Jupiter exalted. A genuine form that may/or may not mask inadequacies. The uncomfortableness of the Self when it is out of the flow.
Saturn in detriment. An ultimately weak defense leading to exposure and humiliation. Extremism that keeps the Self out of the flow.
Line 5
Sensitivity The ability to sense when otherwise balanced behaviour must be adjusted to meet the requirements of changing environment.
Jupiter exalted. The power to grow. The capacity of the Self to grow through experiencing the extremes.
Pluto in detriment. The tendency to overcompensate. The drive of the Self to overcompensate and dis- turb the flow.
Line 6
Self-defense. Modesty that is never confused with weakness.
Pluto exalted. Constant reexamination to weed out the weakest aspect. The power of the Self in exploring the extremes to find the weakest point.
Venus in detriment. A tendency to use harmony as a weapon in problem situations rather than focusing on the root causes. The power of the Self to ignore the weakest point in favour of harmony.

5 — 15 The Channel of fixed Rhythms
A Design of Synchronisation with the Universal Flow

This Center is associated with self-identification and the feeling of impersonal (so-called transcendental) love. The energies of the Gates in the G-center help people realize their unique uniqueness at a certain point in time and space. It is the understanding that only you and no one else can be in the same place at the same time.
