Quick Tip: Buckle Up! Super-Speed Energy Almost Here

Each year at this time (late November), there is a powerful transit that bathes the entire planet in super-fast Manifesting Generator energy. A transit is a set of Human Design gate energies activated by the constantly moving planetary bodies. Transits happen every day, all year long. Some are more impactful than others. (Read more about transits here)

This transit, with the sun in gate 34 and the earth in gate 20, activates the 34-20 channel which is the archetype of the Manifesting Generator. Manifesting Generators are the fastest processing and functioning type of all the Human Design types and, when defined by the 34-20 channel, that MG is the fastest of all the MGs.

So, what does this mean for us right now?

Starting Saturday, November 23, 2019, and lasting 6 days we all can benefit from this powerful surge of available energy! (Of course, where you are on the planet affects exactly when the transit begins and ends for you.)

Gate 34 is the gate of power and Gate 20 is the gate of the “now.” Together, they flow the Sacral Center’s potent work force and life force energy directly to the Throat Center providing “motor energy” for communicating and making things happen in the world.

This is BUSY energy. The busiest, in fact.

How might YOU feel this energy during the transit?

If you have an undefined Sacral Center (you are a Projector, Manifestor, or Reflector), you will likely feel an increase in energy available for getting things done. This can be good news, especially just before Thanksgiving when there is often a lot to do!

This energy can also feel exhausting, so pay attention to your body and what it needs. You may need extra naps and rest time. Whatever you do, pace yourself and don’t overdo it. This energy isn’t yours. You’re just “borrowing” it and experiencing the flavor of it. You don’t actually become a Manifesting Generator. You just may feel it temporarily. (By the way, not everyone feels it.  If you don’t feel it, don’t worry about it!)

If you have a defined Sacral Center (you are a Generator or Manifesting Generator), you may feel an increase in your energy for making things happen. This is the initiating energy that gives “manifesting” capacity to the Manifesting Generator types.

You may feel a turbo-boost in your ability to communicate powerfully and get things done. You may get super busy! But it’s still not YOUR energy, so pay attention to how your body feels and don’t overdo it. You can get exhausted by this energy, too.

If you already have the 34-20 defined in your chart, you might feel an extra surge of energy but you’re probably already so busy that you may not even notice it.  😉

For all of us:  this transit gives us a brief, golden opportunity to turbo-boost our “doing-ness.”

Now that you know about it, you can plan for and wisely leverage this temporary gift of powerful energy.



Celebrity Chart: Elon Musk — is there such thing as a billionaire’s chart?

posted 2018/09/17

When I see super successful people in the news I often wonder what makes them tick, and specifically if there is something in their Human Design chart that makes them different from you and me.

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!

Jared Leto – Uncommonly Talented 1/3 Manifesting Generator

Birth: December 26, 1971 at 12:36pm in Bossier City, Louisiana


Many thanks to my loyal reader Maya Oliver who suggested Jared for this Celebrity Chart article and who provided a wonderfully detailed description of him, his background, and his diverse accomplishments. I’ve used most of what she sent me in this Background section!

Here is a direct quote from Maya:

Jared LetoFrom music and film, to new business ventures and philanthropy, I am continually blown away by the energy, drive and dedication Leto puts into everything he does. His work leaves me inspired and motivated to believe, follow my dreams, work hard and fight the good fight.

Celebrity Chart: Nikola Tesla – forgotten genius

Here is a brief look at a celebrity’s Human Design chart using just a few of many aspects and layers of a chart. Our purpose here is to give you just a partial glimpse, through Human Design, into this person’s energy dynamics.

Nikola Tesla

Birth: July 10, 1856 at around midnight, in Smiljan, Yugoslavia (now Croatia)

Death: January 7, 1943


Nikola TeslaThis tall (6ft2), skinny (148 lbs) genius inventor and engineer pioneered some of the world’s most important inventions. His tireless work on the Alternating Current electrical system in the late 1880’s gave us our US power system, which then became the standard for electricity across the globe.

He held 300 patents from 26 countries and was also a poet, philosopher, lover of fine music, food and wine, and a linguist (he spoke 8 languages).

Although I found conflicting birth times for him, biographical accounts of his birth at the stroke of midnight during an electrical storm led me to simply choose midnight for creating his Human Design chart.

The prophetic message of an electrical storm producing an electrical engineering genius has not gone unnoticed by the world!

His Youth

  • He was the 4th of 5 children born to a Serbian Orthodox priest father and a mother who was clever at making tools and electrical appliances and who had a remarkable memory.
  • He credits his mother for his inherited photographic memory and inventiveness.
  • He was deeply influenced by a math teacher in our equivalent of high school; he finished in 3 years instead of 4, and was able to do complex integral calculus in his head (leading his teachers to suspect he was cheating).
  • He contracted cholera after graduation, was near death several times, and remained prone to illness the rest of his life.
  • Although he began his technical university schooling brilliantly, by his 3rd year he had lost his scholarships, began gambling, and never finished school.
  • He drifted a while, did draftsman work, had a nervous breakdown, moved to Prague and eventually went to Budapest where he became chief electrician for a telegraph company.

“Human Design TYPES in Relationships” Series: Manifesting Generators

Manifesting Generators:  Nothing Moves Fast Enough for Them

Manifesting GeneratorThere’s a good chance you either ARE one or have a RELATIONSHIP WITH a Manifesting Generator somewhere in your life–they are approximately 33% of the world’s population. Like Generators, they have sustainable energy and constitute a significant part of the world’s work force.

While they share many characteristics with Generators, and some practitioners refer to the two as one Type, here we will look specifically at only the pure Manifesting Generator (your Human Design chart will show “Manifesting Generator” as your Type).

Manifesting Generators have two primary focuses in life:  work and family/mating, so they are usually immersed in relationships all their lives.

Unlike the Generator:

  • Manifesting Generators have a Motor Center to the Throat so can more easily manifest ideas into action, though like the Generator they do need to check in with their Sacral Response before taking action.
  • Manifesting Generators are here to find fastest way through things and may skip steps while getting things “done.”  They may need to go back and fix what they skipped if it was important.
  • Manifesting Generators are the busiest Type and like to have multiple balls in the air.
  • Nothing seems to move fast enough for many Manifesting Generators.
  • The authentic energy of Manifesting Generators may be VERY intense; they are often dynamic and manifest projects and outcomes with a productive burst of energy that keeps on going. They eventually run out of steam, but watch out once they’ve recharged themselves!

They are born to “respond” to everything around them, which they do quite naturally. But often those responses happen so fast that the Manifesting Generator is not consciously aware of them.

Celebrity Chart: Miley Cyrus–From Good Girl to Provocative

Miley Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus)

Birth: November 23, 1992 at 4:19pm in Nashville, Tennessee




Miley CyrusWhat happened to Miley’s wholesome, fun-loving, Hannah Montana image of just a few years ago (at left)?

This teen idol and Disney Channel star of the Hannah Montana show has done what seems to be 180-shift into an edgy and provocative singer/performer (a very tame photo at right). She’s currently 21.

Looking at her Human Design chart significantly helps us make sense of what is happening.

Let’s understand a little of her background first.

Early Life

  • Daughter of famed country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, she was raised with siblings and half-siblings on a 500-acre farm outside Nashville, TN, where they all attended church regularly
  • When she was 8, the family moved to Toronto where her father starred in the TV series Doc and where Miley began her acting and singing career, including a role in her father’s show

Early Career

  • At age 11 she auditioned for Disney’s new Hannah Montana TV show, where her persistence as well as her talent landed her the lead role
  • The show began airing in 2006 which immediately skyrocketed her career and established her as a teen idol; she filmed [continue reading…]

Quick Spotlight: Two Different Decision-Making Styles

Recently, two clients asked for a Relationship Reading so they could deepen their friendship and improve how they support each other in their respective businesses. They are both lightworker entrepreneurs and have been best friends for years.

They had each had a Personal Reading with me, so they were ready to dive into the details of the energetic dynamics of their relationship.

Among the many profoundly useful things they learned, understanding the specific ways in which their respective decision-making processes are different was significantly valuable to them.

One is a Generator, the other a Manifesting Generator. So at first glance we might assume that their decision-making styles would be similar. They both have a Defined Sacral Center and need to wait for their Sacral response to know if something is right for them.

However, the Generator is emotionally defined (her Emotional Solar Plexus Center is colored in) so she must wait through her emotional wave and note her Sacral response at various points on her wave before she can make a correct decision for herself. This slows her down and gives her a deliberate and somewhat emotional way of arriving at her decisions.

The Manifesting Generator is emotionally open (her Emotional Solar Plexus Center is white) so her Sacral response in the moment is her immediate answer for the decision. She is designed to make quick decisions. Plus she has a Defined Spleen Center so she has powerful intuitive awareness in the moment in addition to her Sacral response. And, she’s a Manifesting Generator so she is wired to move fast, think fast, choose fast. She is a speedy and sure decision-maker.

It had been a source of frustration for both of them that their decision processes seemed to be so different… but they didn’t really understand why or what to do.

Now they completely see the underlying dynamics and know that the best way to help each other is to honor and support each of their respective decision-making processes. We also worked on their Yes/No questioning so each can help the other access their Sacral response through asking targeted Sacral questions.

Celebrity Chart: Peter O’Toole

Peter O’Toole – Born to Be Bad?

Birth: August 2, 1932 at 12:15am in Wicklow, Ireland*

Death: December 14, 2013 in London, England


Peter_O'Toole_in_Lawrence_of_ArabiaWe lost a true force of nature when Peter O’Toole passed away at the end of 2013 at age 81. He was a powerful actor who lived life with equal gusto on and off the stage and screen.

With a Scottish mother and Irish father, Peter grew up mainly in northern England and attended catholic school for several years. After graduating, he did a brief stint as a journalist then was called up to serve in the Royal Navy for two years.

Then he became a scholarship student at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London 1953-54, where his classmates included Albert Finney and Alan Bates. Unlike them, however, he pursued classic theater craft and developed his signature dramatic stage presence.

He gained recognition as a Shakespearean actor which lead to some television work and a small part in a film.

In 1962 he was cast in Lawrence of Arabia, a stunning film which quickly became a sweeping success and for which Peter received his first Oscar nomination.

After that leap into stardom, [continue reading…]


Quick Spotlight: Use Sacral Response to Improve Your Game?

The sister of one of my clients was intrigued by what that client had learned about herself, her husband, and their relationship during their series of Readings.

So the sister, a Manifesting Generator, (who has not had a Reading with me) set about learning what she could from available books on Human Design and from my Success By TYPE Self-Study Course for Manifesting Generators.

She recently sent me an email describing how she has been using her Sacral response to help her improve her tennis game. She’s a pretty serious player.

It’s such a cool and effective use of Sacral guidance that I wanted to share about it!

When she’s serving the ball, she asks her Sacral if she should serve wide (nope, uhn-uhn) or down the tee (yup, uh-huh) then she follows that guidance. She wrote, “What I noticed is if I listen to my sacral it’s always right in ways my brain can’t figure.”

Even when her brain questions the choice (because it’s not “logical”), if she follows her Sacral response it seems to work out. And she’s been winning!

She says it’s a little tougher when the ball is coming at her, because it comes so fast, but maybe that’s when following Sacral is actually easier because the brain doesn’t have time to “think” or get in the way.

So if YOU are Generator or Manifesting Generator, I encourage you to see where you might try applying your Sacral responses in your life. The results may surprise you…in a really positive way!

And please let me know about your experiences and your feedback.
