Celebrity Chart: Ruth Bader Ginsburg – The Notorious RBG

(posted 2020/09/30)

So sad that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is no longer with us in person. She made such a powerful and lasting impact on our world.

During her stellar legal career, she was a staunch advocate for women’s rights and gender equality, successfully arguing cases before the Supreme Court. In 1993, President Bill Clinton appointed her to the Supreme Court where she was only the second woman to serve. (Sandra Day O’Connor was the first.)

In her later years she became a pop culture icon, know as “The Notorious R.B.G.,” for her “passionate dissents” in many Supreme Court cases and her liberal views of the law. She actively remained on the Court until she passed away on September 18, 2020, at the age of 87.

BACKGROUND
(excerpted from https://www.oyez.org/justices/ruth_bader_ginsburg)

Ruth Bader Ginsburg spent a lifetime flourishing in the face of adversity before being appointed a Supreme Court justice, where she successfully fought against gender discrimination and unified the liberal block of the court. She was born Joan Ruth Bader on March 15, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York.

Celebrity Chart: Judy Collins — still going strong at 78!

(posted 2017/11/04)

The other day I heard on the radio that Judy Collins would be performing in concert with Stephen Stills, and then doing her own concert tour after that. I was intrigued that she was still performing and touring, and wondered how old she was and what gave her such staying power… in an industry that sees so many musical artists come and go.

With the amazing tool of Human Design to help understand how she’s wired energetically, I ran her chart and also looked up some of her history.

It turns out she is 78 (almost exactly a year older than Wayne Dyer would have been), and still going strong!

Her chart gives us great clues about her sustainability, her sensitivity, and what has kept her driven all these years.

BACKGROUND  (excerpted from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judy_Collins)

Judy Collins (born May 1, 1939) is an American singer and songwriter known for her eclectic tastes in the material she records (which has included folk music, show tunes, pop music, rock and roll and standards) and for her social activism.

Collins’ debut album A Maid of Constant Sorrow was released in 1961 [age 22], but it was the lead single from her 1967 album Wildflowers, “Both Sides, Now” — written by Joni Mitchell — that gave Collins international prominence. The single hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart and won Collins her first Grammy Award for Best Folk Performance. She enjoyed further success with her recordings of “Someday Soon”, “Chelsea Morning”, “Amazing Grace”, and “Cook with Honey”.

Collins experienced the biggest success of her career with her recording of Stephen Sondheim’s “Send in the Clowns” from her best-selling 1975 album Judith. The single charted on the Billboard Pop Singles chart in 1975 and then again in 1977, spending 27 non-consecutive weeks on the chart and earning Collins a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, as well as a Grammy Award for Sondheim for Song of the Year.

[Her career has been brilliantly successful spanning many decades but her personal life has had many challenges.]

Collins contracted polio at the age of eleven and spent two months in the hospital in isolation.

Collins has been married twice. Her first marriage in 1958 to Peter Taylor produced her only child, Clark C. Taylor, born the same year. The marriage ended in divorce in 1965.

In 1962, shortly after her debut at Carnegie Hall, Collins was diagnosed with tuberculosis and spent six months recuperating in a sanatorium.

Collins later admitted having suffered from bulimia after she quit smoking in the 1970s. “I went straight from the cigarettes into an eating disorder”, she told People magazine in 1992. “I started throwing up. I didn’t know anything about bulimia, certainly not that it is an addiction or that it would get worse. My feelings about myself, even though I had been able to give up smoking and lose 20 lbs., were of increasing despair.” She has written at length of her years of addiction to alcohol, the damage it did to her personal and musical life and how it contributed to her feelings of depression. She entered a rehabilitation program in Pennsylvania in 1978 and has maintained her sobriety ever since, even through such traumatic events as the death of her only child, Clark, who committed suicide in 1992 at age 33 after a long bout with clinical depression and substance abuse. Since his death, she has also become an activist for suicide prevention. In April 1996, she married designer Louis Nelson, whom she had been seeing since 1979. They live in Manhattan in New York City.

Remainder of this Background section is excerpted from:  http://www.judycollins.com/biography/

Throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and up to the present, she has remained a vital artist, enriching her 1972catalog with critically acclaimed albums while balancing a robust touring schedule.

Prolific as ever In 2012, she released the CD/DVD Judy Collins Live At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art which aired on PBS. This special television program was nominated for a New York Emmy and won a Bronze Medal at the 2013 New York Festival International Television & Film Awards.  Based on it’s success, in 2014 she filmed another spectacular show in Ireland at Dromoland Castle.  Live In Ireland was released in 2014.  This program also won a Bronze Medal at the 2014 New York Festival International Television & Film Awards and the program will broadcast on PBS in 2014 and 2015.

Judy has also authored several books, including the powerful and inspiring, Sanity & Grace and her extraordinary memoir, Sweet Judy Blue Eyes: My Life in Music. For her most recent title to be released in 2017, Cravings, she provides a no-holds barred account of her harrowing struggle with compulsive overeating, and the journey that led her to a solution. Alternating between chapters on her life and those of the many diet gurus she has encountered along the way (Atkins, Jean Nidetch of Weight Watchers, Andrew Weil, to name a few), Cravings is the culmination of Judy’s genuine desire to share what she’s learned—so that no one has follow her heart-rending path to recovery.

In addition, she remains a social activist, representing UNICEF and numerous other causes. She is the director (along with Jill Godmillow) of an Academy Award-nominated film about Antonia Brico – PORTRAIT OF A WOMAN, the first woman to conduct major symphonies around the world–and Judy’s classical piano teacher when she was young.

Judy Collins, now 78, is as creatively vigorous as ever, writing, touring worldwide, and nurturing fresh talent. She is a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.

Celebrity Chart: The Dalai Lama

(posted 2014/07/31)

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.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Birth: July 6, 1935 at 4:38am in Taktser, Qinghai Province, China (also known as the Amdo region of Tibet)

Background*

By paddy patterson (Flickr: Dalai lama) [CC-BY-2.0], via Wikimedia Commons

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is recognized worldwide as an embodiment of peace, wisdom and compassion.

He is the 14th Dalai Lama (religious name: Tenzin Gyatso, born: Lhamo Dondrub) and the longest lived. Dalai Lamas are the head monks of the Gelug school, the newest of the schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, and is also well known for his lifelong advocacy for Tibetans inside and outside Tibet.

The Dalai Lama was selected at age two as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama and began his training at age six, although he was only formally recognized as the 14th Dalai Lama on November 17, 1950, at age 15. The Gelug school’s government administered an area roughly corresponding to the Tibet Autonomous Region just as the new People’s Republic of China wished to assert central control over it. There is controversy over whether the respective governments ever reached an agreement for a joint Chinese-Tibetan administration.

During the 1959 Tibetan uprising, the Dalai Lama—concerned for his life—fled to India where he established a Tibetan government in exile and denounced the People’s Republic. He has since traveled the world, advocating for the welfare of Tibetans, teaching Tibetan Buddhism and talking about the importance of compassion as the source of a happy life. However, around the world, governments and institutions face pressure from China not to accept him.

His appeals to the United Nations for the rights of Tibetans resulted in three U.N. General Assembly resolutions calling on China to respect the human rights of Tibetans. But he and his followers remain refugees, unable to return to their home. In 1963, he set up a democratic constitution based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, creating a Tibetan elected parliament and administration from his base in Dharamshala, India.

He has authored many books and given lectures and teachings around the world, speaking about the environment, economics, women’s rights, non-violence, interfaith dialog, physics, astronomy, reproductive health, and sexuality, along with various Buddhist philosophies and practices.

Although he has succeeded in mobilizing international support for the cause of greater Tibetan autonomy and even independence, he and his 80,000 followers remain in exile.

On May 29, 2011, at age 75, the Dalai Lama retired from his political responsibilities which he transferred to the democratically elected leaders of the Central Tibetan Administration.

“Human Design TYPES in Relationships” Series: Generators

Generators: Work & Family are the Focus

Pure Generators, approximately 37% of the world’s population, are the majority of our world’s work force. While they share many characteristics with Manifesting Generators and some refer to the two as one Type, here we will look specifically at only the Pure Generators (your Human Design chart will show “Generator” as your Type), which I’ll refer to as Generators from now on.

Generators have two primary focuses in life:  work and family/mating. So they are usually immersed in relationships all their lives. It is possible for a Generator to have primarily Individual energy, in which case they might not feel they fit in with their family and friends and they may prefer to be alone much of the time. But their work force and life force energy is strong and consistent.

They are born to “respond” to everything around them, which they do quite naturally. But often those responses are subconscious and unnoticed.

Human Design shows Generators that they have an amazing internal guidance system—their Sacral Energy Center—that responds to everything around them. It’s the red square on their Chart, and only Generators and Manifesting Generators have it. All other Types have a white (“Open”) Sacral Center (second square up from the bottom of the chart).

          About This Series

Human Design gives us deeply insightful knowledge about the nature of WHO we are and HOW we behave as human beings.

Your personal Human Design chart (you can get your free Human Design chart here) helps you understand the energy dynamics and personality characteristics of YOU.

Human Design also helps you understand the other people around you and the nature of YOUR relationship with them.

This makes possible the achievement of supportive, fulfilling,
and constructive relationships in every area of your life.
And in every relationship in your life!

Wouldn’t THAT be something!

This series of articles about “Human Design TYPES in Relationships” will help you move forward along this most noble and worthy path.  😉

Today’s article explores how the GENERATOR TYPE interacts with OTHER TYPES.

          Quick Refresher on Human Design TYPES

There are five TYPES of people in Human Design. Type is determined by which Energy Centers (geometrical shapes on your Human Design Chart) are colored in and how they are connected to each other. In other words, your Type reflects your personal energy configuration. Type is usually indicated in writing on a Chart.

Each TYPE has a Role to play in life and has a particular decision-making and action-taking Strategy that is the best and most correct way for that TYPE to operate in life.

Here is a very brief description of the TYPES and their Roles and Strategies

Manifestor – approximately 8% of the population
Role: to initiate action from ideas
Strategy: inform everyone in your “impact field” before you take action

Generator – approximately 37% of the population
Role:  to find the right work and the right partner in life
Strategy:  wait to respond with your Sacral energy before you take action

Manifesting Generator – approximately 33% of the population
Role:  to find the right work and the right partner in life (and to find the fastest way to do things)
Strategy:  wait to respond with your Sacral energy then inform everyone in your “impact field” before you take action

Projector – approximately 21% of the population
Role:  to manage, guide and direct the energies of others
Strategy:  wait to be invited into life’s big decisions (love, marriage, career, where you live), and wait to be asked or recognized before sharing your wisdom

Reflector – less than 1% of the population
Role:  to reflect the health of our communities back to us
Strategy:  wait 29 days (full lunar cycle) for clarity before you take action

          The GENERATOR in the World and in Relationships

Generators who use their inherent energy correctly and follow the inner guidance of their Sacral response are a powerful force that benefits the world, and they are magnificent to behold!

When their Sacral response had guided them to the “right” work for them, they have nearly inexhaustible energy to do that work. And their natural penchant for achieving mastery drives them to persist in improving their skills.

Because of their sustainable work force and life force energy, they tend to be steady partners in relationships although their specific personality characteristics will be affected by the many other energies in their Human Design Chart.

They are the energizer bunnies who can hold down a job, raise a family, get involved in the PTA or other activities, maybe do volunteer work, stay physically active, and pursue various interests. Not all Generators do all of these things… but most of them could!

Some famous Generators are: Albert Einstein, Dalai Lama, Elvis Presley, Bill Clinton, Meryl Streep, George Harrison, Madonna, James Dean, Judy Garland, Oprah Winfrey, Meg Ryan, Greta Garbo.

         If You Are a GENERATOR . . .

If you’re not waiting for life to “come to you” and then responding to it so you know if you should pursue something or not, you are going to experience frustration.

It’s likely that you’ve been going in a lot of wrong directions until now, trying to “just go do it” like we’re taught by our society. Problem is… that’s just not correct for you. Hence, the wrong directions and the frustration.

Sadly, our closest relationships often bear the brunt of this frustration. When you recognize and follow your inner guidance, you’ll have less frustration spilling over onto others. And recognizing that the frustration you feel is just energy can also help you minimize its impact on others.

Your brain will often work hard to try and figure out the right answers for you, but that is NOT where YOU want to be making your decisions and choices. That’s what your Sacral Center is for.

However, frustration IS part of your personal learning curve, so you won’t be avoiding it entirely. But if you learn to wait for things to show up so you can respond to them, AND you learn to honor and follow your responses, you’ll be making choices in alignment with your energetic structure and your inner Authentic Self, and you’ll minimize frustration and maximize joy and fulfillment.

You also need to be active enough during your day to be physically tired when you go to bed. It’s as if you wake up each morning with a full tank of gas, and you need to use it all before you sleep. Then you wake up with a new full tank the next day and do it all again. If you’re not sleeping well, try getting more physical activity. This is especially true for Generator children, many of whom are incorrectly diagnosed with ADD or ADHD.

          If You Love a GENERATOR …

Understand that it is correct for them to wait for their inner guidance before they take action. If you happen to be a Manifestor or Manifesting Generator, this may be uncomfortable and/or frustrating to you.

Allow the Generator to wait for things to respond to, and allow them to honor and follow their responses… even if their responses “appear” to not be logical.

The most respectful—and helpful—way that you can interact with a Generator is to ask them Yes/No questions. This allows them a clear opportunity for their Sacral Center to respond and give them guidance.

Don’t take their frustration personally. Recognize that it’s part of their process, and when you support them in being true to their Generator nature you’ll help them minimize that frustration.

And, if you are a non-energy being (a Manifestor, Projector, or Reflector), don’t try to keep up with the Generator in your life. You will wear down and burn out. Let them keep going while you take care of yourself and manage your energy. Once this energy difference in your relationship is truly understood and respected, you’ll both be happier.

I welcome you to share below any success stories you have had as a Generator or as someone in relationship with a Generator. Your generosity in sharing for the benefit of everyone is appreciated!

Celebrity Chart: Philip Seymour Hoffman – Tragedy by Design?

(posted 2014/02/27)

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.

Philip Seymour Hoffman

Birth:  July 23, 1967 at 2:39am or 5:30am in Fairport, New York
Death:  February 2, 2014 in New York City

Background

Versatile and prolific actor with a successful career and bright future—dead of heroin overdose at age 46. WHY? What can we learn from his Human Design chart to help the us make sense of this tragedy and perhaps avoid similar fates for people like him?

Let’s understand a little about him first.

Early Life

  • Middle class upbringing; parents divorced when he was 9; he and 3 siblings raised mostly by their mother
  • At age 12 saw his first stage play and was transfixed; when an injury at 14 ended his sports future he turned to acting (with the support of his mother who also loved theater); acting became his passion for the rest of his life

Accomplishments

  • Accomplished actor and director in both film and theater, appearing in more than 50 films during his 2-decade career
  • Awarded the Academy Award for Best Actor (as well as various other awards and accolades) for his title role in the 2005 biographical film Capote
  • Nominated three times for an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor
  • Numerous Tony Award nominations for his work in theater
  • The New York Times called him “perhaps the most ambitious and widely admired American actor of his generation”
  • Despite all the recognition, he was modest and humble about his success

Personal and Relationships

  • In a serious relationship for last 14 years of his life with costume designer Mimi O’Donnell
  • They had three children together 2003-2008
  • They separated in fall 2013, a few months before his death

Struggles

  • Drug and alcohol abuse during college; went to rehab for addictions and was in recovery from age 22
  • Relapsed 23 years later in 2012
  • Checked himself into rehab for 10 days in May 2013 for prescription pills and heroin
  • Found dead in bathroom of his NYC apartment with a needle in his arm and heroin and prescription drugs in his apartment

There is not a confirmed birth time for Philip, so I compared the two “rectified” times I found. The differences between them were not significant for our purposes here, so I used 2:39am.

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 Charts: JFK & Jackie – Relationship Lessons?

(posted 2014/01/30)

John F. Kennedy & Jacqueline Kennedy

BackgroundJFK_and_family_in_Hyannis_Port,_04_August_1962

John F. Kennedy

See my Celebrity Chart article and background about him here.

Jackie Kennedy

Here is an excellent brief biography of Jackie.

Their Relationship

Jackie, a young socialite from a privileged family, and JFK (Jack), an up-and-coming politician from a privileged family, ran in the same social circles in the early 1950’s. They met officially in mid-1952 and became more serious after Jack won the election to a US Senate seat that November.

Their wedding in Sept. 1953 was considered the social event of the season, with over 1200 at the reception. Despite their glamorous image, their relationship was beset with various struggles including his serious health problems and two spinal surgeries that were nearly fatal for him. She had a miscarriage and a stillbirth in 1955 and 1956. Caroline was born in 1957. Jackie became pregnant again in 1960 just after Jack began his campaign for president so she was not able to play the active role in his campaign they had both anticipated. That pregnancy and his campaign were successful, and they became one of the youngest couples to live in the White House.

As First Lady, Jackie was elegant, popular, and handled the new spotlight with grace and charm. She redecorated the White House, organized White House social events, and was skilled at interacting with foreign dignitaries (she spoke several languages fluently).

They were both private people, so the intense public nature of their relationship and family issues was probably difficult for them, and their marriage was not always smooth. There were alleged affairs on both sides, though there was also a powerful commitment to each other and some say they were considering having more children just before Jack’s assassination in 1963.

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.

Quick Spotlight: Using Sacral Responses for “Everything”

One of my clients is a Generator with a 2/5 Profile. While the 2/5 Profile itself is not common, what makes her really unusual is that all nine of her Energy Centers are Defined. (The only famous person I know of with nine Defined Centers was John Denver.)9-Center Chart2

This means she is here to make an impact on others. All of her centers are broadcasting energy “out.” She has no center where she is taking energy “in” from other people.

She’s not completely immune to conditioning, however, because she of course has Gates and Channels that are Open where she does take in others’ energy.

The reason I’m sharing her story with you is because of how she is using her Sacral responses. (The Sacral Center (red square) gives the Generator and Manifesting Generator Types guidance in the form of “un-huh” and “uhn-uhn” sounds indicating “yes” or “no.”)

Shortly after her Reading she reported that she was “enjoying playing with” her Sacral responses. She was using Sacral guidance for important decisions and choices, and sometimes to help her choose what to order in a restaurant.

During her participation in my “Master Your Strategy, Master Your Life” group coaching program after her Reading, she shared with us how her use of Sacral guidance was evolving.

She said she had started using it for “nearly everything.”  She now makes her grocery list using her Sacral responses. She decides when and what to eat using her Sacral. She shared that she had eaten some very weird dinners lately, but that they were healthy and satisfying!

Following Sacral guidance–without judgement–is the key for Generators and Manifesting Generators to live a truly Authentic life… one that is completely correct for their personal energy. (Though if you have Emotional Authority–check the bottom of your chart–wait through your emotional wave to gain further clarity about your Sacral responses on important decisions.)

If you’d like to learn more about what it’s like to completely follow Sacral guidance, I recommend Mary Ann Winiger’s book, A Revolution of One. It’s her story (she’s a Generator) of completely turning her life into an experiment in living according to her Sacral responses. It’s available here.
