Pluto the planet of Transformation in the Gate of the Fighter

30/05/2015 Pluto has gone back to Gate 38: The Fighter where it will hang out until 3rd January 2016. Do you have Gate 28 in your chart? If so, this connection with Gate 38 activated by Pluto gives you definition of your Spleen and Root centres via the Channel of Struggle: the energy and desire to fight for what is most meaningful in your life - a powerful Individual mutative energy that empowers (or not) by overcoming obstacles to find or create a sense of purpose. The Root centre is the stress of change that arises out of fear or the vitalising drive for improvement [...]

Projectors and Invitations

When Projectors first discover the information about their Type, they often describe an inner recognition of something they have always known or sensed, and here it is confirmed in writing. It can feel like having permission to finally relax and let go of the pressure and struggle to act like a Generator. It is permission to stop doing something that has never felt comfortable or aligned – the ‘doing’ life. However, this feeling of relief is almost immediately followed by the mental worries about survival, and worth, especially if the Will centre is open. How will I live if I don’t behave like everybody else? [...]

The many faces of politics. Leadership Elections UK 2015

With the leadership contest in the UK hotting up, here's a very brief overview of who they really are according to their Human Design. Human Design is a profiling tool par excellence revealing in great depth and details someone's strengths, skills, abilities and potential challenges, weaknesses and their source of potential wisdom which comes out of the experiences they meet in life.   Ed Miliband – Generator 5/1 Heretic (Leader)/Investigator Ed is designed to respond with emotional clarity to opportunities to bring higher principles in which he has a firm foundation and deep conviction to the inspired leadership of people towards better ways of ensuring [...]

Initiating vs Manifesting

I want to speak about the difference between initiating and manifesting. Many newcomers to Human Design receive the information that they should not initiate in life, but would be better served by waiting to respond, or be clear, or for an invitation. They then start to question their life by looking for actions that are initiating, and attempt to stop themselves acting in this way, as though it were dangerous or bad. (My hand is up to this one!) The Law of Attraction shows us that we are all master manifestors - not Manifestors as the Human Design Type. It is this manifesting through attraction [...]

Using Your Internal GPS to Live Your Inner Purpose

If you keep doing the same thing and finding yourself at the same kind of destination which isn’t one you really want, then you are possibly ignoring a Road Ahead Closed sign somewhere. If you were driving and you encountered one of these signs, there would usually be a Diversion sign to follow instead. There’s nothing wrong with your intended or desired destination, just that your route to get there is going to be a little, or a lot, different than the one you expected. It’s the same when you encounter a Road Ahead Closed sign in your journey to your dreams. So if you [...]

Human Design is not a recipe book

When I first started my journey with Human Design, I didn’t and, to be fair to me, couldn’t fully realise what it was I had got my hands on and my mind into. I have had a tendency to jump into systems, learn the rules and follow them to the letter unquestioningly. I was never the kid creating trouble at school because I quickly learned what was expected from me, and did just that. So, looking back, it really was no surprise that this was another set of teachings to which I applied myself diligently, doing what I thought was expected of me. I literally [...]

The Gentle Art of Contemplation

When working with Human Design or Gene Keys concepts, it can be easy to be drawn into someone else's explanation of what they mean. Or to think you know what it means.  This is OK but it isn't the full picture. It's just the beginning of what could turn into a beautiful relationship. Each word is like a door. Doors often tell you very little about the room on the other side! Meeting a concept in this way is like meeting a person you've maybe seen from a distance, someone who is a regular in your local coffee shop. You known and recognize them by [...]

Appreciating Waiting

This subject of 'waiting' is one that is well worth contemplating and experimenting with. Waiting to Respond is the life strategy for Generators; waiting for Invitations is the life strategy for Projectors, and waiting through the cycle of a lunar month is the life strategy for Reflectors. But what is this 'waiting' for and why is it beneficial to learn to wait? In my own personal experiment I have found so many different ways to 'wait'; waiting helplessly for something or someone else to act first; waiting in a state of apathy; waiting as a restriction on desire and impetus; waiting as a mind game; [...]

Complaining and Worrying Points to Integrity

I've always worried. Some of my first memories are of worries. And complaining became a daily practice. Then came chronic anxiety and panic attacks. Shame is fertile ground for anxiety. The trauma of your wholeness being violated in some way can create this kind of inner split. Judgment and criticism set up a division in your cells. Part of you feels wrong and to feel that, needs another part to keep finding things to tell you are wrong. This is the frozen trauma state; it has not been moved to resolution where the split energies can recombine into wholeness. There is a victim and an [...]

Your wild natural genius

You are a genius. Everyone is. You are pure and you are messy. You are wild and you are tame. You are everything. Your family and loved ones provide contrast, tell you that you are unloveable, separate, alone, weak, wrong, too intense, too soft, too meek, too strong. This pain stimulates you to reach for what you dream, and discover it is not in them, not in anyone else. It never was for them to give it to you, because it is within you. There is great tragedy and loss and grief in this discovery. Why didn't you look there sooner? It's time to step [...]
