Series: Fear Gates of the Spleen #8 – Gate 44

Once a year, from late September to early November, there is a cycle in which the sun consecutively activates each gate of the Spleen Center.  These are called the “Fear Gates of the Spleen” as each has a potential fear associated with it.  Knowing about these gates will help you understand each energy as it transits and also help you master the energy if it is defined in your Human Design chart.

Series: Fears of the Spleen #1 – Introduction

We all have fears that occasionally stop us, slow us down, or knock us off track completely.  If you know when the Fear Gates of the Spleen are transiting and affecting all of us, you can confidently navigate these challenges and move through them with ease.  Understanding these gates will also help you manage them if they are defined in your Human Design chart.

While the focus of my online work and private readings with clients is providing uplifting and reaffirming explanations of chart energies, it’s truly useful to understand these Splenic Fears—so you know how to handle them.

In this Fears of the Spleen series, we will explore all seven Gates/Splenic Fears in the order they occur as the sun progresses through the 64 Human Design Gates.

It turns out that all 7 Splenic Fear Gates occur one right after the other from late September through early November every year!

No wonder Halloween happens near the end of that run.  <wink wink>

To get the most from this series, you’ll first need to understand how the sun transits through the gate energies affecting us all, and also understand Splenic Fears in general.  [continue reading…]

Elon Musk is one of those people–a successful billionaire entrepreneur running multiple companies who is actively (even aggressively) trying to move the world toward the future with luxury electric cars and ambitious plans for commercial space flight and colonizing Mars!

Article: Timing… is it really “everything”? (A quick look at manifested, generated, and projected channels)

Timing.

They say it’s “everything”… but is it really?  What do you think?

More importantly, what has been your experience with timing, and with waiting for the right timing… or not?

Can Human Design help us to be better “timers”?

Human Design not only teaches that timing is crucial for most of us, it gives us the specifics of how, when and why to wait for it.

Thank goodness.

Like me, you probably saw evidence of the need for good timing long before you happened across Human Design.  But, like me and so many of us, you weren’t quite sure how to manage it well.

ENTER Human Design!  Let’s specifically explore the distinction between manifested channels, generated channels, and projected channels as they relate to timing. This distinction is not talked about much in Human Design texts and teachings but it’s a very useful distinction to understand and apply. [continue reading…]
