Gate 33 Retreat (Privacy)

The energy to step back and integrate new experiences so that you can share those experiences with others. People who need regular time alone to reflect on the past.
The Gate of Privacy

Summary of the Gates in  Rave Chart Structure:

  • Center: Throat
  • Circuit: Sensing
  • The Channel of The Prodigal (13-33)
  • Quarter (II): Civilization
  • Deity: Maat
  • Physiology: Thyroid gland
  • Additional notes: no

These people have the power to express all the accumulated experience of the Experiential Circuit. Their archetype is a wise storyteller who can share all aspects of the experience and show what people should learn from it.
The 33rd Gate narrator is very different from the 56th narrator, who stirs up the emotions of the listeners more. The purpose of the first is to reveal the main secrets or show what lessons can be learned from what happened.
These people can be talented speakers, writers, and teachers. Living their Design, they should understand that the older and wiser they become, going through many cycles, the more influence they have on others.
Without the 13th, the 33rd Gate will be able to share the experience, but lack the depth to learn from it.

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

Line 1
Sun exalted. The wisdom in a weak position to recognize that survival demands complete withdrawal. Retreating when one realizes that they are in a weak position.
Mars in detriment. Where courage is just plain foolishness. Unable to retreat when overwhelmed by stimulation.
Line 2
Jupiter exalted. The recognition that surrender to superior forces can be an opportunity to expand one's own strengths and eventually triumph. Embracing powerful forces in order to lay the foundation for future success.
Neptune in detriment. Unlike the reasoned and calculated surrender above, the deeper and personal surrender. The feeling that one's original position was a delusion and the impression- ability that makes might right. A public embrace of powerful forces, and a private resentment of their power.
Line 3
Spirit. The attitude that turns retreat into victory.
Jupiter exalted. The responsible and principled retreat based on preservation but with the determination to persevere. Privacy as a path to success.
Mars in detriment. A lack of responsibility in retreat. The bridge burner. A drive for privacy that will cut off its relationships, often abruptly.
Line 4
Dignity. A lack of turmoil in retreat.
Pluto exalted. The underlying faith in resurrection that turns retreat into an opportunity for renewal and regeneration. The healthy retreat for regeneration.
Neptune in detriment. Without the guiding light of resurrection, the inevitable dissolution that leads to degeneration. Forced to retreat, and unable to see its regenerative qualities.
Line 5
Pluto exalted. As important as the timing itself, is the ability to keep secret one's intentions until the appropriate moment. The ability to keep one's intentions secret.
Jupiter in detriment. The tendency to want others to participate in the selection of the timing, which can lead to confusion. Without a sense of timing, letting others in on the secret prematurely with resulting confusion.
Line 6
Disassociation. The ability to let go.
Sun exalted. The will to concentrate on revitalization and not be handicapped by persistent recriminations. The ability to let go in retreat, to enjoy privacy.
Jupiter in detriment. The ability to shed the larger framework that precipitated the retreat, leaving nagging doubts that hamper revitalization. The inability to completely let go.
