Gate 48 Depths (The Well)

Tendency to analyze things with great depth. You look at the size and scope of this in great detail. People born with such natural wisdom that they themselves do not notice it until they are asked.
The Gate of Depth

Summary of the Gates in  Rave Chart Structure:

  • Center: Spleen
  • Circuit: Understanding
  • The Channel of Wavelength (16-48)
  • Quarter (III): Duality
  • Deity: Jesus Christ
  • Physiology: Lymphatic system (Spleen)
  • Additional Notes: Creative Gate, Gate of Health

Such people always have the potential to come up with new solutions. If the energy of the 58th is the blind joy of challenging, the 18th is the ability to pinpoint that challenge through criticism, then the 48th Gate is essential to offer a real solution to any problem.
This is the Gate of inadequacy, having a twofold fear: that their wisdom may not manifest at the right moment and that they may lack the ability to express it. As with all projected channels, if these people are waiting for an invitation and recognition, their wisdom will come out clearly and correctly.
The holders of this Gate sit at the source of natural wisdom and wait for the right moment to share it. Without the 16th Gate active, the 48th cannot recognize its depth with full clarity and, as a result, lack the skill or ability to apply it.

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

Line 1
The Moon exalted. An instinctive recognition of what is practical and deserves attention. A taste for recognizing what is practical and deserves attention.
Mars in detriment. An ego tendency to apply energy to trivial considerations. A taste for trivia.
Line 2
Pluto exalted. The awareness that to successfully establish a new form one cannot neglect the most positive attributes just to accommodate inferior elements. This would lead to deterioration. A confidence in awareness to resist inferior influences.
Venus in detriment. The misguided urge for harmony that degenerates when associated with inferior values into decadence. A lack of confidence in awareness that invites interference and decadence.
Line 3
The Moon exalted. Symbolized by the 'no Moon' phase, where the potential of light is unrecognized, unavailable and unknowable. The redeeming value is in the transience of such a stage which can give strength to those so afflicted. Where the development of taste and depth is a long term process.
Mercury in detriment. The profound anxiety when a profound intelligence is forgotten in the wilderness. The tendency in a long term process (development of taste and depth) to anxiety.
Line 4
Sun exalted. The good sense to take advantage of restriction on short term activity to assess the situation and restructure for long term goals that will facilitate development when activity resumes. The awareness that depth and its possible expression will face restrictions with a resulting taste for short term projects.
The Earth in detriment. A resistance to restructuring on speculation, with the tendency when activity resumes to have to do so anyway. A taste for long term projects that will be frustrated in restraint.
Line 5
Mars exalted. The natural urge to apply energy to action. A taste for action.
The Moon in detriment. An overreliance on the need for protection that in times of social renewal is obsessed with the details of planning at the expense of action. Insecurity with one's depth that can fail to take action.
Line 6
Self-fulfillment. An undiminishable resource.
Venus exalted. The valued center, that as it gives, it receives and thus can continue to give. A depth and potential talent that is of value to others.
The Moon in detriment. A tendency to superficiality, that though generous and nurturing, will lack the inspirational quality that can transform its gift into a common currency. Where the depth is limited the taste will be superficial and affect the quality of the possible talent.

A Design of Developing One's Skills and Talents

Instinctual awareness is our most important security system, located in the Splenic Center. This Center instantly catches any threats from the outside, gives the necessary signals and makes you move in a safe direction. It is also responsible for the functioning of our immunity.
