Gate 60 Acceptance (Limitation)

An energy that carries the potential for change in your own life and the lives of others. People with the potential to bring lasting change to the world.
The Gate of the Acceptance of Limitation

Summary of the Gates in  Rave Chart Structure:

  • Center: Root
  • Circuit: Knowing
  • The Channel of Mutation (3-60)
  • Quarter (IV): Mutation
  • Deity: Guardians of the Wheel
  • Physiology: Large (rectum) intestine
  • Additional Notes: Format Gate

These Gates create a pulsating pressure to mutate - that is, to bring something completely new into the world. Their owners feel it inside, but cannot release it at will.
The great challenge of this Gate is to learn to wait for the right moment, not knowing when it will come and what it will bring. While such people are waiting for the next gear change in their lives, they can become deeply melancholic. Ironically, it is at times like this (when they feel most “limited”) that a mutation occurs within them: like a butterfly hidden inside a chrysalis.
Without the presence of the 3rd Gate, such people may feel that life is holding them back. If they accept these feelings, they can transform them into creative activity and create something that will ultimately be extremely useful. As a rule, this happens just in time for the next mutation to occur.

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

Line 1
Venus exalted. The ability to maintain inner harmony when confronted by external limitations. Harmonic energy that can deal with external limitations.
Mercury in detriment. The drive for diversity, that when limited can become restless and agitated. Restless energy when confronted with external limitations.
Line 2
Saturn exalted. The understanding of the nature of limitation, to accept its restraints when necessary and thus be able to take advantage of opportunities when they arise. Energy which can adapt to restraint.
The Earth in detriment. An adaptation to restraint that becomes habitual and maintains the nature of the limitation even when it no longer exists. The energy for adaptation that can get stuck without eventual mutation.
Line 3
Saturn exalted. Enlightened self-interest, that naturally handles restrictions and limitations ensuring identity and security. The energy to maintain identity and security despite limitations.
Mars in detriment. Ego gratifying self-interest that ignores limitations and suffers predictably. Energy which ignores limitations and pays the price.
Line 4
Mercury exalted. The reasoned and intelligent maximization of potential within limitations. The maximization of potential within limitation.
Venus in detriment. A tendency in times of limitation to seek the inner meaning of the restriction rather than using its gifts to find a harmonic application within the limitation. The former leads to withdrawal and the latter to transcendence. The energy to know rather than accept limitation at the expense of possible mutation, leading to depression.
Line 5
Neptune exalted. The awareness that the destruction of the old limitations simply creates new ones. This results in behavioural patterns that demonstrate this understanding through actions and enhances leadership potential. The energy to handle a lifelong process of dealing with limitations.
Jupiter in detriment. Where the natural desire for expansion, when limitations are essential, creates confusion from the top. Expansive energy that cannot handle limitations.
Line 6
Uranus exalted. The intuitive intellect to recognize when absolute rigidity is essential but with innovative applications to lessen its severity. A fixed energy that is unusual in its capacity for restraint.
Mercury in detriment. The dogmatic, principled and carefully reasoned understanding that is uncompromizing in its severity and often coldly brutal in operation. An uncompromizing and severe acceptance of restraint. So uncompromizing that the restraint may become unbearable and lead to chronic depression.
