The holders of this Gate are characterized by receptivity as the basis through which any response is determined. They can become exhausted and very frustrated if they try to do all the work themselves.
It is much more effective for them to use their natural gift of leadership and simply direct the creative process. Their secret is to find the right allies in life and use their talents.
If you imagine the 2nd Gate as a seed, then the 14th is the light and water that help it ascend. The resources and commitment of the 14th Gate help realize the giftedness of the 2nd.
