The 5th Gate fixes the patterns of all life: it holds all "creations", including man, in a universal rhythm. As a result, such people radiate a deep sense of security.
This is the Gate of Daily Rhythms and Pace, which gives its holders the need to follow regular natural rhythms in their lives.
Here, waiting manifests itself as an active state of awareness and allows you to tune in to what is happening. It is common for such people to have unchanging habits and routines that they keep from being disturbed because it destabilizes their safety and health.
When the 15th Gate is present as a harmonic component, this can be felt as an inconvenience, as it violates the safety of the 5th Gate routine.

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

Line 1
Perseverance. If the captain must, he goes down with the ship.
Mars exalted. Courage in the face of adversity. The power to maintain one's own rhythm.
The Earth in detriment. The premature and often disastrous urge to cut one's losses. Weakness in maintaining one's rhythm when challenged.
Line 2
Inner peace. The ability to ignore the temptation to take premature action.
Venus exalted. The gift of maintaining composure through idealizing tranquility. The power to be comfortable with one's rhythm.
Pluto in detriment. Inner peace experienced as stagnation. The drive for power that is constrained by the fixed rhythm.
Line 3
Compulsiveness. The fear engendered by the sense of helplessness resulting in unnecessary stress and activity.
Neptune exalted. Compulsiveness can be limited in its negative effect through flights of imagination. Though still stressful, they do not lead to action. A surrender to the limitations of a fixed rhythm through the empowerment of the imagination.
The Moon in detriment. The Moon cannnot stand still. Unable to surrender and at odds with one's own rhythm.
Line 4
The hunter. Waiting as a guarantee of survival.
Uranus exalted. The creative genius to transform the most passive experience into active achievement. The power to make the best of one's fixed rhythm.
Sun in detriment. The vanity of a personality so strong that unwilling to hide behind a blind, threatens its very survival. The drive to deny one's own rhythms with predictable costs.
Line 5
Joy. Waiting as an aspect of enlightenment.
Venus exalted. To remain calm as the ultimate aesthetic and thus recognize the inner meaning of being. The power to be calm and to find one's place in the flow.
Pluto in detriment. Joy dismissed as an illusion, waiting as a failure. Disillusionment with recognizing one's place in the flow.
Line 6
Yielding. Waiting is never free from pressure, physical or mental and is often punctu- ated by the unexpected.
Neptune exalted. The growth of awareness that comes with bending to the universal flow. Accepting that in one's fixed rhythm despite the pressures, growth will be empowered, and often through the unexpected. No polarity.
There is no planet in detriment; each in its way, given the power of this position, will yield to the inevitable. No planet in detriment.
