Daily Impact - September 17 2019, 19:59 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 x 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’ x 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 3 - Allegiance

Keynote: The ability to secure support and create strength out of a weak position. When connected to the harmonic Gate 59, mating that results in conception.

Exalted: The destruction of old forms through union; either mundane, as above, sexual union, or exalted as universalization. The depth of feelings that can enrich union and intimacy.

Detriment: The rejection of allegiance as submission to established order. Sensitivity to controls which may eventually reject intimacy.

* 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. 

3RD LINE DAY : Trial and Error • Mutative • Material • Bonds made and Broken

This is a mutative time where things may not go as planned. Flow with the chaos that may come with this day. Use your Strategy and Authority to navigate through what may be the meeting of the unexpected.

The 3rd Line carries with it the tendency to ‘bump’ into things or people. Now this could be perceived as negative or positive. Negative in terms of accidents or breakages or positive in terms of the sudden appearance of an old friend or perhaps finding yourself outside a store that has exactly what you want at a sale price.

The 3rd Line is also known as the Line of Trial and Error. So this can be a time when more inaccuracies or mistakes may manifest. It is a process of experiential learning. Sure, something may go wrong, but in learning why it went wrong new discoveries may be made.

The 3rd Line also has a material connotation to it. So this is also a time when money could be made... or lost. It is a time when the material demands of modern society may wear heavy on our heads or a time when we get to grips with the material necessities and deal with it.

There is also the possibility of experiencing shame in some way due to ‘mistakes’ that may be made. We need to be forgiving of ourselves, and others, today. After all it is the transit that is affecting us, and it is not as easy to live by one’s Strategy and Authority it is to understand it conceptually. Also see that ‘mistakes’ are essential for us to grow; by encountering limits we may not recognise in ourselves unless we experience them.

Bonds being made and broken is an important 3rd Line theme. The 3rd Line is adaptive and that entails breaking bonds that are obstructive, restricting or unpleasant. If you have a 3rd Line in your Profile, then it is important for you to break the bonds in order to expand your experience of life. On this day everyone will be conditioned to do so to some extent. Our Strategy and Authority will let us know if it’s correct or not. Be aware that the majority of the population don’t know they are being conditioned today by this theme, so watch it play out. Bonds that have been broken can be mended later on, in some cases.

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.
