Daily Impact - September 20 2021, 08:46 UTC *

The ‘Daily Impact’ interpretation reflects the impact of the Sun and Earth (70% of the neutrino influence) on what happens in the world as time moves us through the Gates and Lines of the Human Design wheel. 

What is offered here is a general frame to the day, especially in terms of external conditioning and potential identification with the power of the Sun’s influence through a particular Gate theme. Also consider what is written about the grounding effect of the Gate in the Earth position of the day. Take note of the Line of the day and think about the quality of the Line and the Rave I Ching cryptic sentence. And, of course, pay attention to any Channels that may be formed on the day, as that Life Force will most certainly be relevant to whatever happens. 

For those of you who are more familiar with the Gates and Channels, pay attention to the chart of the day which shows us the detail of the day’s imprint. Look for Gates that may join a ‘hanging’ Gate in your chart, notice the planetary accent it has and ponder upon its relevance to your day. Above all else, ‘The Daily Impact’ is a tool to assist subscribers to witness themselves living their life within ‘The Program’ and becoming more aware by observing the themes unfold.


Gate 6 - Conflict

Keynote: THE GATE OF FRICTION

Bodygraph position: The SOLAR PLEXUS Centre

Quarter: The Quarter of Duality - Purpose fulfilled through Relating

Line 6 - The peacemaker

Keynote: The discipline and integrity of a superior force to unilaterally cease conflict to permit surrender and survival of its foe.

Exalted: The highest form of reason is that life is sacred. The emotional power to end conflict tempered by feelings and sensitivity to others.

Detriment: The peacemaker whose actions are just but whose terms are unacceptable. The emotional power to end conflict but only after one's conditions have been satisfied.

* Two lovers together. The red nails digging into the back of the other, reminding us of both the pleasure and the pain that emotions bring to us. It also projects the strong tactile nature of this Gate. The Wheel shows us this Gate in is the Quarter of Duality where life is transformed through relationships and correct or incorrect bonding.



As the Sun moves into the 6th Gate we can expect emotional energy to be at work in the world. The 6th Gate is the Gate of Friction and is the Hexagram of Conflict.

It is about whether we can open up to the potential intimacy around us, or whether it’s time to keep our feelings to ourselves. It is a time when we can be moved to feel we need greater intimacy, which can be sexual or a time when we feel the pain of not connecting with others.

At another level it is can be the energy to create friction in our relationships in order to become aware of what is truly felt within and experienced externally in those who are dear to us. Questions such as: “Is this relationship fertile for me?” or “How can I get through to this person?”

Ultimately ‘friction’ is there to open us to a deeper love and the sensitivity or lack of sensitivity by which it is experienced determines whether that opening happens or not. As part of The Channel of Mating it can be fertile in ‘making more’ should the ‘other’ be a sexual partner or a creative partnership in business or creative endeavours.

And yes, it is emotional. This Gate is the source of all feelings, moods and sensitivity, so literally emotional friction may emerge at this time. It may be a necessary catharsis to make us aware of where we have neglected to connect with either another person or a project that could be a source of creative potential left unrealised, a love unshared or a sense of loss at an emotional level. Or it may be the power to cross the boundary and be met, the urge to reach out and touch.

Consider that this transit is grounded in the 36th Gate of emotional crisis. This can be experienced as overwhelm and the desire to get through it. So along with the theme of conflict we can expect a certain amount of spontaneous blaming for the way ourselves or others are feeling at the time. Please remember feelings can lead to clarity over time – allow time to pass while you process whatever you are feeling during this transit.

Harmonic Gate

If you have the 59th Gate in your Design and are sexually active then this is a time when you should be aware that conception is more viable. In a Fixed Sacral Centre this Gate is always looking to meet the 6th Gate and find the specific intimacy that makes everything feel good in your life. So use this time to experience a deeper connection with those around you for either pleasure or to find out what the blockage in connecting may be all about. 

6TH LINE DAY : Authenticity • Objectivity • Optimism • Leadership

This is primarily a day when we can expect to exhibit behaviour that is more individualistic, and to notice that others are also being more true to themselves or, alternatively, being hypocritical with a “do as I say, not as I do” attitude. The basic keynote of this Line is ‘Role Model’, which is really all about being authentically oneself or not.

Generally speaking, the influence of this Line brings in a more optimistic approach to the world, one than can be more objective, and from that stance being able to see the bigger picture.

Leadership is also part of the day’s flavour, but this does not necessarily mean that we will see leadership in actions. Yes, that may well happen, but the 6th Line Leadership is one where no leadership will be forthcoming unless it can be perceived to be going somewhere, otherwise why bother? So we, or those around us, may not step into leadership position if there is no point in so doing.

Here we come to the theme of trust. If a 6th Line doesn’t trust anything will come of it, then it will not exhibit its leadership. In the larger sense, we may all be considering various trust issues with those around us. “Can we trust them?” “Do we trust them?” “Do they trust us?”

In alignment with the themes already mentioned, we should also consider the fact that the 6th Line brings us the themes of sympathy or apathy. We may find ourselves getting involved with someone if we are sympathetic to them, and not if we think there is no point and we are apathetic about them.

Get to know the themes of the Lines as they come by as regular cycles throughout the weeks and months. As you track them, even occasionally, you will become more and more aware of the Program within which we live. Don’t let the conditioning of the day take you away from following your Strategy and Authority. Just look deeper into what is happening to you and around you.


Take this transit as an opportunity to see these themes occur within and around you. As you see them you will then have the opportunity to consider that you yourself may indeed be a pattern in a larger Program, as described by The Human Design System. If you can verify the truth of the transiting Gates in your life today, then I trust it will remind you to come back to following your Strategy and Authority - for that is the way to play the game. It is the way to wake up mechanically and experience what it is like to flow along in your life as yourself, without the resistance that comes from trying to live a conditioned life in a ‘Not-self’ world. 

As we notice the daily impact upon our own Human Design imprint during the day, we naturally grow in our awareness of ourselves and the adventure of what it is to be alive in a world that is constantly conditioning us.

Those who are Reflectors can align to the daily transit, paying particular attention to the drive of the Moon. The rest of us, Manifestors, Generators and Projectors are here to resist the conditioning in terms of our decision-making and learn from it to increase our wisdom.

* UTC

UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) is a time standard based on Earth's rotation. It is a modern continuation of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), i.e., the mean solar time on the Prime Meridian at Greenwich, England. Check the time in your location against UT to calculate precisely when this transit will impact you. For instance, if you live in New York you will be 5 hours behind UT.
