It is the Gate of love for the perfection of every experience, no matter the outcome. For such people, any experience is correct, and they do not need to run from any feelings.
This is the Gate of Sensuality - love for the body and reverence for the flesh as our temple. This Gate represents the magic of trusting that our natural responses will guide us through life in perfect timing.
The 46th Gate may know when the right moment is right, but without an active 29th, it lacks the power of commitment to start or continue the process.

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

Line 1
Being discovered. Dedication in obscurity that is unexpectedly discovered.
Neptune exalted. Art for art's sake. Any creative endeavour that is self-fulfilling sooner or later is rec- ognized. The potential for creative success through dedication.
Jupiter in detriment. The ability to judge the potential of those in obscurity but often solely to benefit one's own success. The determination to recognize and benefit from the success of others.
Line 2
The prima donna.
Sun exalted. A difficult and demanding nature that succeeds despite its behaviour because of the depth of its talents. The determination to succeed that may offend others.
Mars in detriment. Unrealistic demands and offensive nature of egocentric mediocrity. The determination to be treated as a success before it has been realized.
Line 3
The Moon exalted. A practical approach to good fortune, that maintains the same patterns and attitudes that brought success and does not get sidetracked by indulging in further expectations. The determination to stay with what brings success.
Mars in detriment. A tendency through projection to treat a potential future as the present, leading to unjustified egoism and the loss of momentum and support. The determination to treat a projected success as a reality.
Line 4
The Earth exalted. The ability, once recognized, to move rapidly from a position of obscurity to influence. The good luck which comes from being determined that eventually, in the right place at the right time, leads to recognition.
Pluto exalted. A reaction in achievement that tends to bite off the hand that fed it. The determination in success to ignore those who helped create it.
Line 5
The Moon exalted. The maintenance of proper rhythm that in its instinctive practicality avoids radical divergence from successful patterns. The determination to stay with the rhythm which brings success.
Neptune in detriment. An irrational rejection of the very patterns that have proven successful. Determined to say no to the very rhythm that brings success.
Line 6
Saturn exalted. The wisdom to secure one's identity through careful consideration of the restrictive potential of commitments. The determination to say no to restrictive commitments.
Neptune in detriment. Deceiving oneself and others by overextending one's resources and eventually being in the position of having to break promises. A drive for success that will not say no, and will end up breaking promises.

29 — 46 The Channel of Discovery
A Design of Succeeding Where Others Fail

This Center is associated with self-identification and the feeling of impersonal (so-called transcendental) love. The energies of the Gates in the G-center help people realize their unique uniqueness at a certain point in time and space. It is the understanding that only you and no one else can be in the same place at the same time.
