The Gate of the Provocateur

Provocation occurs in different ways: someone can be "offended" even by idleness (both the 39th and the 55th are the Gates of indecision). In fact, this is the Gate of Flirting. If the holders of the 39th Gate receive a negative reaction to their provocation, then the spirit of the other person does not resonate with them and they better learn not to take it personally.
They should evoke pleasure instead of pain and joy instead of sadness (although actors with this channel use it quite effectively). How successfully they awaken the desired reaction in another person directly depends on the mood of the 39th Gate: if it is bad, then they can unexpectedly cause suffering in others. They are also always looking for someone to fall in love with.
Since this is the Gate of the Root Center, it endows its owner with specific coping strategies in dealing with stress, for example, in incorrectness this can lead to overeating or refusal to eat.
The 39th Gate needs the 55th in the form of someone who can be provoked in order to determine one's own feelings in this way.

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

Line 1
Mars exalted. The determination when confronted by obstacles to withdraw but only temporarily. The energy to provoke by refusing to confront obstacles.

Jupiter exalted. The great benefic whose first consideration is for the larger framework. The energy to provoke through self-sacrifice.

The Moon exalted. Practicality and the ability to guide and nurture others. The energy to provoke others by attempting to solve their problems.
