Summary of the Gates in  Rave Chart Structure:

  • Deity: Vishnu

This Gate is responsible for the desire to climb higher in the social ladder and achieve a higher status. They also represent materialistic ambition and the desire to "make money". These people are the driving force of society, and in particular, the business community.
The archetype of this Gate is the concubine who rises up the hierarchy to eventually become an empress. These people are always trying in some way to attract the attention of a superior (on a physical or mystical level).
Without the 32nd Gate, the 54th is a blind desire to achieve a certain goal. The conservatism and instinct of the 32 helps channel their ambitious aspirations into something solid and worthwhile.

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

Line 1
Pluto exalted. The ability to achieve influence through secret relationships, anywhere from the private adviser to the Satanist. Ambition energized through secret relationships which fuel influence.
Venus in detriment. A socially misguided insistence on formal recognition of a relationship, that in terms of influence, will diminish its power. Ambition which demands formal recognition limiting influence.
Line 2
Saturn exalted. The wisdom once a relationship is formally recognized to restrain the temptation to take advantage of past informal interactions. The energy of restraint fuels ambition.
Mars in detriment. Recognition, in the formal sense, seen as a licence to take advantage of informal knowledge. A lack of loyalty. Ambition energy which can fuel disloyalty.
Line 3
Covert interaction.
Pluto exalted. The ability when stymied in formal relationships to use secret or purely informal channels, when it is the only resort. The drive when blocked to use secret means to fuel ambition.
Venus in detriment. The insistence that formal channels, no matter how frustrating, can be overcome by the power of attraction. The energy of ambition when blocked will fuel the power of attraction to overcome the obstacle.
Line 4
Enlightenment/endarkenment Here, in this most mystical of positions, there is neither an exaltation nor a detriment, for in truth, they are the same.
No polarity. No specific planetary accent. The Alpha and Omega. The end and the beginning. There is no description possible. Each planet will manifest this energy uniquely with absolutely no guarantee that its effects will even be perceived. However, the potential is always there. The fuel for transformation at its purest level.
Line 5
Sun exalted. The natural authority and actualizing spirit, that in a position of power, can have genuine and fruitful relationships with the less advantaged. (As long as they are in service and make no demands.) The energy for actualizing that despite this power fuels fruitful relationships with others.
No detriment.
Line 6
Saturn exalted. The ingrained responsibility, in terms of maintaining security and personal identity that will naturally restrict its relationships to ones that are mutually beneficial. The energy to restrict relationships that hinder ambition.
Jupiter in detriment. A generally benefic and expansive nature that assumes that it can instill, what is otherwise missing in its partners. A waste of energy. The waste of energy in maintaining relationships which hinder ambition.
