It is the Gate of desire and the source of all our emotional pain and longing. Such people may not know what they need, but they want to try everything possible and new, as a result of which they gain (or not) wisdom.
It is also the gate of Destiny: since desire has great power over people, the best lesson that the owners of this Gate can learn for themselves is not to take any experience (practice) personally and not limit themselves to expectations.
If they are able to enter new situations from a clear emotional space, whatever they learn will be right for them - even if it's not what they planned. The 41st Gate narrows the emotional field and focuses on one particular desire or fantasy.

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

Line 1
Composure. Balance in the face of disorder.
Sun exalted. The maximization of limitation in all cases. Stability through feelings, no matter what the situation.
Jupiter in detriment. The ability to maintain composure but at the expense of progress. Balanced through feelings but unable to let go of them.
Line 2
Pragmatism. The balance between extremes.
Sun exalted. The productive application of energy without wastage. Not wasting energy on feelings.
Mars in detriment. Overaggressiveness that chafes against limitations. Feelings which demand energy.
Line 3
Resignation. The acceptance of what is.
Pluto exalted. The awareness and manifestation of the law of regeneration. The laws of Karma, reincarnation and resurrection. The feeling to accept what is.
Jupiter in detriment. The tendency by its very knowledge to encourage or avoid despair. The positive or negative feelings which come with acceptance of what is.
Line 4
Burnout. An unrealistic pace that begs misfortune.
Pluto exalted. A compulsive and hyperactive nature that carries all the earmarks of burnout but doesn't necessarily arrive at it. A positive outcome is often assisted through analysis. Highly energized feelings that may lead to emotional collapse.
Jupiter in detriment. Uncontrollable expansion with the inevitable bursting of the bubble. Uncontrollable feelings and accompanying emotional outbursts.
Line 5
Irony. Recognition and dedication to transitory goals.
Jupiter exalted. The strength derived from knowledge and experience that two steps forward and one step back, is still one step forward. Each new feeling brings back an old feeling before progress can take place.
Pluto in detriment. The anger engendered by the irony, frustration with its limitations and a desire to eliminate the entire process. Frustration and anger with the old feelings brought into the emotional awareness with each new experience.
Line 6
Enforcement. The discipline to maintain right action.
Mars exalted. The assertiveness to purge the inferior while accepting to lead the weak. The strength to eliminate negative feelings.
The Moon in detriment. An inherent peacefulness that all too often will abide the presence of inferior forces. A lack of strength in eliminating negative feelings.
