This is the Gate of asking questions and the pressure of needing an answer. Such people can be suspicious and distrustful as long as they doubt the logic of something important to them.
They are characterized by an insatiable thirst for answers and a pervasive doubt that drive most scientific thought. Such people can be the source of the greatest benefit in this world. However, if doubt dwells on itself, it can lead to debilitating anxiety.
The energy of the 4th Gate helps them find a solution to their doubts. And without 4, such people ask questions, in the answers to which there is no value for them, but there may be inspiration for others.

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

Line 1
Sun exalted. The quality of personality where achievement is accepted with equanimity and where continued development is allowed to take its natural course. Acceptance of achievement but doubt whether continued development will take place.
Mars in detriment. The tendency in achievement to immediately seek new goals at the risk of destabilizing what has already been accomplished. The pressure in achievement to still doubt one's capacities and to immediately seek new goals.
Line 2
Jupiter exalted. The establishing of a large framework through which achievement can be expanded and shared; compensating others for their contributions while maintaining control of direction. The pressure to share one's doubts with others while still maintaining control.
Uranus in detriment. Instability in achievement that when in positions of authority leads to arrogance and the desire to keep others away from the center of power. Doubts in achievement that can lead to suspicion of others.
Line 3
Jupiter exalted. The dedication to the new beginning that insists on maintaining its achieved principles despite having to interact with those who have not attained such a state. Doubts that one can maintain one's principles when interacting with others.
Saturn in detriment. Success at any price. The pressure to eliminate the doubt at any cost.
Line 4
Mercury exalted. The detailed accounting of the achievement process whose information base can prepare a new order for the future. The pressure to explore the doubt in detail as a foundation for eventual formulizing.
Mars in detriment. A willingness to forget in the glow of victory, with a possible price to be paid later. The pressure and risk to forget the details when the doubts have been answered.
Line 5
Sun exalted. The authority and sincerity of purpose to pursue the same values in the new beginning that had allowed it to transcend the old. The understanding that doubts are necessary and of value.
Mars in detriment. A tendency in triumph to pay lip service to such values, and given such leadership, these values will be reduced to nothing more than empty rituals. Doubting one's very process despite understanding.
Line 6
Jupiter exalted. The good sense to avoid turning the previous struggle into an obsession. The logic of leaving old doubts behind.
Pluto in detriment. Revolutionary nostalgia. Illogic and the potential obsession with old suspicions and doubt.
