How Much Rest Are You Getting?

In the last post we looked at the gate 34 in the transits and how its influence of busyness affects the Human Design Projector.  This week we have an extra boost in the transits which take the 34 theme of busyness to the next level.  The entire 34/20 classic manifesting generator channel will be affecting us all for the next few days!  So if you’re feeling more energetic than normal, thank the 34/20 in the transits.  If you look at the Human Design Chart below you can see the 34/20 going from the sacral center to the throat.

34/20 Manifesting Generator

34/20 Manifesting Generator

The Manifesting Generators who have this energy defined in their charts are typically very busy  people. They have the energy for consistently working through the gate 34, and it runs straight to the throat through the gate 20, enabling their activities to directly manifest into something tangible…. (when they wait to respond)

This is great for a Manifesting Generator who can withstand the drive to continually work, but what does it mean when a Human Design Projector encounters the 34/20 energy in the transits? It means that you may be amplifying one or both of the two gates which make up this channel and feel as though you have the energy to work endlessly.  However!!!!! The Projector doesn’t have the consistent sacral energy to sustain work for long periods of time.  So ultimately it is an opportunity for the Projector to become wise about work by feeling the influence and being wise about how to work with it.

This is an amazing, life on fire, energy boost that we non-sacral beings get to experience.  Personally, my multitasking abilities were on steroids yesterday. But luckily I had nowhere to be this morning, because I slept nearly 10 hours to make up for all the activity.  If you’re enjoying the boost too, consider checking in with yourself regularly to ask yourself “How much rest am I getting?”  Now, more than ever, you can really run yourself ragged.

I’m off to bed now, so that I’m fresh for another rendezvous with the 34/20 tomorrow.



Being Wise About Being Busy

The Gate 34 and What That Means for Human Design Projectors

Have you been  busier than normal lately?  Are you in a cycle of busy … busy … busy … crash?  It’s not unusual for Projectors to have incredible bursts of energy which sets them up for a crash. The undefined sacral center gives us the capacity to amplify the work energy of our Generator friends with the sacral motors.  And because all that work energy doesn’t belong to us, we can’t sustain it.   We push ourselves further than is good for us and then we crash.

If you have been working with your precious Projector energy for a while you are well aware of this dynamic and have probably refined your self-care practices to a fine art.  But there is something in the Human Design transits which can still make you vulnerable to burning out your body by being overly busy.

If you aren’t familiar with what I mean by transits, here are some resources which will fill you in. They came from a conversation that we had on one of our Projector community calls back in September:


gate 34 transit March 31The Gate 34, which is known as the gate of power, is currently transiting Saturn.  It has been for a while and will continue until almost the middle of June.  The gate 34 is one half of the 34/20 channel, which is the classic channel for Manifesting Generators.  The 34/20 is the sacral’s direct energy link to the throat.  If you have ever been around a 34/20 Manifesting Generator you know how much multitasking, step skipping, gotta get it done energy they exude.  The gate 34 is like the direct outlet for the strong sacral motor energy that they embody.  By itself the gate 34 carries the theme of busyness.  So what does it mean when the gate 34 is in the transits?  It means that the theme of being busy is affecting all of us, regardless of energy type.  And when you do not have a sacral motor that desire to be busy can really wear you out.  To understand how it may be affecting you, take a look at your personal Human Design Chart.

Is the gate 34 undefined in your personal chart?  You are likely to experience this transit quite strongly.  Remember that the lack of definition in your chart allows you to take in the influence of that particular energy and amplify it.  So if you have had problems sleeping, or feel an extra push to get things done, it could be the amplified experience of the gate 34 which is creating the pressure.  You may also find that you have extra energy or extra desire to multitask right now.  And if you are around your friends with sacral motors this energy can be particularly intense.  So take great care of yourself during this powerful transit.

Do you have the gate 34 defined in your personal chart?  You may not experience much of a difference in the push to be busy, because you already embody the tendency to be a multitasking person on the go, especially when you are around sacral beings.  The busy … busy … busy … crash cycle may be a part of your daily experience.  And hopefully you have learned the hard way about the importance of resting, discharging energy, and waiting for the right invitations.

There is a great opportunity with this transit to become wise about being busy and being powerful.  The taskmaster influence of Saturn on the gate 34 pushes us toward mastery as we examine if we are using our energy and power in ways that truly serve us.  Projectors are here to become wise about how work can be done in efficient ways which bring order and fulfillment to our lives and the lives of others.  As you journey through your experience of the gate 34 for the next few months, I invite you to consider how its pushy, busy, power inducing influence is affecting your life.  Pay attention to how you are leveraging your energy.  Observe how you experience your own sense of power and whether or not that brings you closer to your life’s innate desires.  Reflect on where you can stop, rest and make space for the openings and invitations to emerge which call forth your wisdom in very powerful ways.



Resources from the September Projector Teleconference

Sweet Gum LeafThe September Projector Teleconference was filled with lots of valuable questions and experiences from the Projectors who participated live.  One question in particular about transits and how they benefit Projectors requires a little follow up.

In the recording we briefly talked about what the planetary transits are in general and how to use them to gain wisdom about the energies which are affecting your day to day life.  I also mentioned several resources in the recording and I want to lay them out here for any of you who want to start working with the transits in your daily life.

Transit Charts:  You can get a “just now” chart which shows you the gates which are activated for the current timeframe.  The easiest way to get a just now charts is to go to http://jovianarchive.com/Just_Now.  If you would like to get a free program for your computer so you don’t have to be online to check the transits, the free version of the New Sunware program for Human Design Charts can be downloaded here: http://newsunware.com/eng/Neutrinos/FreeVersion.htm

There is a brief overview in the September recording about how to use these transit charts.  But if this is a bit complicated for you or more than you want to keep up with, a couple of Human Design teachers put out excellent weekly overviews.

My teacher, Karen Curry, usually puts out in her weekly emails an overview of the transits for that week.  To get on her list for email updates go to www.understandinghumandesign.com

Another great resource for weekly transits come from Scott Davis who posts video on his You Tube channel, New World Birth.  They are extremely detailed, and if you want to get a better understanding of the influences and themes of the gates as they move through our collective and personal experiences you will get an education by following him.

If you are new to Human Design, and it is enough for you to immerse yourself in your strategy to wait for an invitation don’t get distracted by all of the other complex information which is available through understanding the transits.  It will come in your own time.  Those who have been immersed in their own experiments for a while often feel compelled to study various aspects of Human Design more deeply.  If this is you enjoy your journey through the transits as you ride the currents of energies which benefit us all.
