Interactive Chart and Gate 15
Interactive Chart and Gate 15
These discussions inspired me to go back and look at my Interactive Chart again, and I noticed how truly significant Gate 15 is for me in this layer. Gate 15.1 is my personality moon in my Interactive Chart (undefined in my natal), and it connects up with my defined Gate 5 to turn me into a MG (from a Projector). So I went to have a look at the Asteroids in Gate 15 in my natal chart and here’s the list:
Pallas and Vesta for starters! Also Eros, Eurydike, Ariadne, Elektra, and Rhiponos. Other than Pallas, Vesta, Eros, and Ariadne, I’m not familiar with the others, so any insight into their significance is welcome.
I also find this interesting because my Mother’s unconscious sun is 15.6. So it’s clearly a big energy in my field. I have lines 15.2-15.5 in various asteroids and the moon in my Interactive chart sits in line 1, but the only line I don’t have in my charts is 15.6.
So I was rereading summaries of this gate, and I was struck by these lines, “It has the capacity to accept and to find a place in society for the full spectrum of human behavior. Its lack of fixed pattern insures that each of us is able to make a contribution to the divers ways love exists in the world.”
I grew up moving around the world, experiencing my adolescence in new countries, learning new languages, crossing cultures and then changing again in big ways. I did this because my parents were missionaries and it was a mission of love for them to make a way for more people to access Salvation. I then grew up and it was primarily my frustration with the limitations of the Church to appreciate the diversity of human expression and experience led me to make my intellectual and emotional home far from religion. I often feel like I’ve experienced too many extremes to every settle on any fixed reality or perception of reality. Often that is disorienting and can feel so hard. But I also feel like it’s a strength, and it’s a perspective that I bring to every group I join. I’m always wanting to feeling into a group’s norms and then question underlying assumptions and push into the things we can’t see because of those assumptions. It’s such my automatic mode of thinking about the world, that whenever I’m part of discussions intended to open participant’s minds to new perspectives, I feel like it’s such a pointless activity, it feels so basic. Which of course is my blindspot, ha, and I have to slow down and appreciate these kinds of discussions as the tools that do shift perspectives.
I feel myself to be a sort of anti-fundamentalism ambassador in life. Fundamentalism in its many forms, religious, political, and so on. And I do so value individual expression. It influences how I parent. It’s part of what draws me to HD and keeps me hooked in. Such a complex and unique way to honor and appreciate the vast diversity of the human experience.
Other interesting observations comparing my Natal Chart to my Interactive Chart.
1. I go from being split definition, Projector, with 5 open centers in my Natal chart (1/3 profile) to single definition, MG, only 3 open centers (my ajna and sacral turn on in the Interactive) and 1/5 profile. As a child especially, I was always described as a leader, outspoken (gate 23 turns on in the Interactive chart, connecting with my 43), and I did a lot and can identify with the MG energy. I always needed my alone time. It was sacred. In fact my parents adopted a 3rd child when I was 8 and the famed story is that they asked how I felt about it, and I said I welcomed another child to the family as long as I didn’t have to share my room. And until I chose to go to boarding school at age 15, my parents were fortunate enough to be able to honor that need, and I always had my own space. But anyhow, I’m just struck by how much being around people lights up so much in me. But at the same time, I’ve really appreciated what HD has taught me about my Projector nature and the need for rest, waiting, honoring myself and not desperately trying to be recognized. Sometimes I think that childhood experience of being the leader who was doing things and making things happen primed me to expect to constantly stay in that experience of life.
One last note: Gate 50 is turned on in my Interactive, completing my 27 gates which are my South Nodes. Gate 50 is north node energy in my Interactive chart. But in my natal chart, Juno sits in my gate 50. Seems like such a natural pairing, Juno in gate 50. Makes me smile. And truly, my home life has almost consistently been a place of caring and love all through my life, both as a child, and then in a very happy marriage and experience of motherhood. It’s always felt like one of life’s gifts to me to have that security, and the few years in my 20s where I was kind of between those realities were some of my hardest.
