The Totem is all about family. It is our connection with the past. It is the karma we bring into this life. It is about genetic influences. Yesterday, I heard that we are all 99.9% the same. That's pretty close to saying we are all one. Genetic connection is being studied world wide.
Often, Totem is about karma and Spiritual Family
The gate is shut and barred. What can we do? We can wait for a little better time.
There is purpose in the shut gate. If you can't move forward, might as well enjoy it. Time for some conversation today and quiet time.
It may simply be a matter of time. The gate doesn't stay closed forever. Is there another way around the gate? The blocks may be small. Take them one at a time.
Don't let your size or lack stop you. You can grow.
A second meaning of the Gate is that it is the 'No' card of the deck.
Give it a try or keep trying.
Give yourself the benefit of your meditative / neutral mind.
How are we doing with our family? The gate seems to be blocked. Can we determine why the gate is closed? Let's contemplate that and then explore our options. We can allow the universe to give us info we need.
You are loved and blessed.
