The Gate of Contraction

Summary of the Gates in  Rave Chart Structure:

  • Center: Root
  • Circuit: Sensing
  • The Channel of Recognition (30-41)
  • Quarter (IV): Mutation
  • Deity: Guardians of the Wheel
  • Physiology: Adrenal glands (adrenaline glands)

The 41st Gate creates the pressure to seek new sensations through feelings, fantasies, delight, and the longing to find your purpose. Often this pressure is felt as anxiety in anticipation of something new, but only an active 30th Gate can crystallize this feeling into a specific desire. Such people may also experience turmoil of feelings, like the 64th Gate experiences turmoil of thought.
Without an active Gate 30, such people know they want change, but they don't know what it is.
