Daily Impact - February 23 2024, 01:02 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 55 - Abundance


Bodygraph position: The SOLAR PLEXUS Centre

Quarter: The Quarter of Initiation - Purpose fulfilled through Mind

Line 5 - Growth

Exalted: The unusual ability in a position of power to accept advice and transform it innovatively. This gift in a position of power allows one to continue to lead rather than being perceived as being led. The emotional strength and spirit derived from positions of power.

Detriment: An integrative openness that in its broad acceptance of advice may be eventually eclipsed. An emotional openness where the spirit is at risk from conditioning.

* Here we see a rather disturbing image of a beautiful woman in two polar opposite moods, happy and sad. It is disturbing to reflect upon the nature of this emotional energy which, when expressed, can lift us into great laughter and a rare empowerment that can blast our worries away. When the mood is sad, it can be deeply depressive and with an overflowing of tears. The image is black and white to represent the extreme contrast and volatility of this highly emotional frequency.

The Gate of the fickle emotional spirit shines down on us during this time. We can expect to experience the extreme polarities of this highly moody frequency. The cup may be seen as half full or half empty, and we may well feel our lives are, in one mood, empty of any real meaning and in another mood, we are deeply grateful for our lives and in touch with a profound feeling of happiness.

This is the most highly mutative of all Gate frequencies at the moment, so volatility is going to be part of the picture. Sudden emotional outbursts or sudden deeply felt ‘in-bursts’ may overwhelm us, only to disappear just as suddenly. When the melancholy comes, as it surely will, my advice is to allow it to be felt deeply. This is a highly acoustic frequency and music can not only soothe us at this time, but also empower a bright creativity that we never knew we had in us.

If we fight the melancholic mood, we may miss the opportunity it offers to open us up to profound knowing. Fighting it by trying to distract ourselves, ingesting anti-depressants or stuffing ourselves with food to dampen our upset, may well prolong the negative state and the misery it creates for those around us.

We may feel like being in our own internal processes and physically distant from others when the mood is low. Alternatively, when the mood is happy, there may be a bubbling, effervescence that loves to brighten the days of others.

Be aware that this can be a time of melodramatic over-reaction, especially for those who have Open Solar Plexus Centres. If we are not following our Strategy and Authority we can be reckless in jumping into things because we feel so good about life and, conversely, usually mundane obstacles can become the spark for a crazy anger that is completely out of proportion to the reality of the situation.

This can be a very destabilising energy, where we can be in a deep longing to meet and be with others whose emotional spirit we love. With the 59th Gate bringing in the grounding energy of potential intimacy, the play between the two can makes us feel we are in love with someone or some beauty, and, in a moment, our world is upside down and we are in a whirl of high romantic melodrama.

This is a time when we may take things very personally and feel deeply hurt. If that hurt is recognised by a true ‘kindred spirit’ who cares enough about us, we may be surprised that they can flip our hurt into outrageous laughter, if their timing in interaction is just right.

Harmonic Gate

If you have the 39th Gate in your chart, then ‘The Channel of Emoting’ themes can be considered. With the 39th Gate you have a love of teasing out the fickle emotional spirit and so it is likely to be quite a full on time for you. It may be more likely that you will feel drawn to try to reach out to those whose pain you feel, and want to soothe them, or conversely, seek out a good friend to connect deeply with.

This is potentially an extremely emotional time for you. There may seem to be nothing much going on and then suddenly you may find yourself in a huge confrontation with someone because of a particularly pointed comment you may make, or the style of intonation you may use, that provokes a volatile reaction in another. You may have meant to illicit a positive reaction with an absurd remark, but it could be misunderstood and the opposite occurs. The key is timing. The key to the timing is following your Strategy and Authority.

As a learning opportunity, you may come to know that emotional moods are not a matter of reasons and judgements, but are all about raw emotional energy that is ready to be felt at a particular time, no matter the consequences.

5TH LINE DAY : Heresy • Seduction • Practical • Transpersonal

This is a primarily practical day, so we will all be conditioned to actually doing or using something rather than just thinking about it. Of course, our own Profiles remain in place, so although a pragmatic theme may be in the air, following our Strategy and Authority will allow us to get help if necessary to apply a workable and constructive approach to things today.

The theme of heresy also applies during this time. So we may find ourselves behaving in a way that could have some people questioning or resisting what we do or say as we veer away from the norm.

The attractive and seductive frame given to us by the 5th Line helps the practical and heretical themes. Seduction holds such a ‘charge’ in our language, but it may well be in our best interests if we are seduced into something that we wouldn’t normally be open to, but which could be precisely what is needed.

The 5th Line theme of ‘being projected upon’ can, on the one hand, have us projecting upon others that they are saviours for us, providing practical assistance when needed; and on the other hand the negative connotations must also be considered. In this case, blame can be thrown at us, or we can find ourselves blaming others, when the projection field blinds us to the actual reality and things don’t go as planned. The saviour becomes the one who is at fault and the seduction is seen as deception.

It’s a transpersonal day, so we can expect to have connections with others and that includes those we don’t know. Strangers may be of benefit to us, or not. The quality of selflessness or selfishness may be applied to the unfolding events of the day.

Finally, the binary of rebellion or discipline also has to be included. 5th Line rebelliousness can be particularly nasty, but then again, it may be precisely what is needed if the status quo is unbalanced.

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 (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.
