Daily Impact - August 6 2020, 22:19 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 7 - The Army


Bodygraph position: The G Centre

Quarter: The Quarter of Duality - Purpose fulfilled through Relating

Line 2 - The democrat

Keynote: The ability to lead by serving the will of the majority.

Exalted: The application of universally accepted systems. When connected through the Alpha Channel to Gate 31 Influence, the potential for widespread and revolutionary effect on society. The capacity of the Self to lead when chosen.

Detriment: Elitism and denegation by democrats of democracy. The capacity of the Self once chosen to feel superior to those who chose them.

* The red person (Gate 7) leads the white people across a tightrope in a depiction of ‘Follow the Leader’. A good leader knows how to follow the natural direction of those they lead. The tightrope represents the strand of logic that takes one in a particular orderly direction. Direction is such a seductive thing. Right or wrong it takes you to a new destination. The Wheel shows us this Gate is in the Quarter of Duality, where life is fulfilled through relationships. It tells us that, at a logical level, we choose partnerships that we project can bring us advancement in our lives in one way or another.

With the 7th Gate shining out on us at this time the theme of logical leadership comes into the world. This may be a time when we consider our future direction in terms of the logical progression that is likely.

This is a logical step-by-step progress towards a goal in the future. “Am I going in the correct direction for me to get to where I would like to be?” “What is necessary for me to get to a better future?” “Where is my life dysfunctional and what needs to be sorted out?” “How can I best get ‘them’ to come into line with my direction towards a better future?” “Who is good for me right now?” “Who isn’t good for me?” These are all questions that may be considered at this time.

Essentially this Gate projects a pattern of direction into the future in a logical way. So you may find yourself thinking about what steps you are going to take towards a ‘better’ more functional future.

As a Gate within the Alpha Channel (7/31) and the one that defines the role of directional leadership, there may be a tendency to tell people what you think they should do.

There may also be influences that can come into your life that offer you a better future or the path towards such a future. Following your Strategy and Authority may take you along the track they show you, or find yourself understanding something important about where your current trajectory is taking you.

This current influence could bring us to question those we have been following in one way or another and to consider whether it is serving us to continue to do so. “Are they leading us on the right track or not?”

This transit is grounded in the 13th Gate of the Listener. So we can expect to find empathy in the air, encouraging the sharing of experiences. Listening to others and their positive or negative experiences allows us to reflect upon our own experience. In this transit that may lead us to readjust the trajectory of our future plans.

Harmonic Gate

If you have the 31st Gate in your Design this may be a time when you find yourself expressing a preference for a particular direction you think is beneficial for yourself or others. It may be a time when others listen to you in a way they may not always do so. You may be better able to better discern how to lead those who do follow you. You may be tempted to act upon this influence and tell others what to do without them inviting your ‘advice’, which could lead into unnecessary arguments about both your authority and the direction they prefer. 

2ND LINE DAY : Hermit • Natural • Playful • Being

This is the Line of the ‘Hermit’. So this may well be a day when we would rather be alone and in our own self-motivation. It may be a day of ‘pottering’ doing a little bit of one thing and then naturally moving onto something else and the whole day can go by quickly.

The 2nd Line carries with it the tendency to be unaware and naïve. So it may be a day when ‘the rug gets pulled out from under us’. Or, more simply put, a day when we can have encounters we never planned or expected.

The 2nd Line is also known as the Line of the ‘Natural’. So this can be a time when there can be a smoothness in displaying certain natural gifts we may possess, due to the Resonance (2nd Line Gates) or Harmonies (5th Line Gates) in our Design.

The 2nd Line also has a youthful connotation to it, so today may be a time when we are conditioned to be more playful. Notice in children the astonishing natural gift they have of moving rapidly from being upset one minute to laughing and forgetting about the upset the next. The fluidity of this natural influence can make work become a playful experience.

There is also the possibility of wanting to be naturally ‘open’ to others, like a child interested in new people or, as in accordance with the hermit theme, it can be a day of closing off to others, bringing the drawbridge up and preferring to spend time in your own space.

The 2nd Line has a reputation for saying, “I just can’t be bothered!” This is partly because of the self-motivated aspect of the Line. It is also because others can see into the 2nd Line gifts that we may possess in our Design, but we don’t know it. So people may repeatedly be telling us we’re brilliant at this or that and we just don’t want to know because we don’t think it’s anything special, or we don’t feel called to look at it at that time.

There is also the theme of being shy or bold. So we may want to avoid the ‘limelight’ or we may seek it out because of a mission we’re on at the moment.

The theme of being ‘called’ is inherent to today. 2nd Lines are basically ‘waiting for the call’. So there is also the possibility that we will be invited or shown or encounter something today that really ‘floats our boat’, and sets us in a new direction for which we are ideally suited.

Remember this 2nd Line theme is the transit of today. Just because it is affecting us doesn’t mean we should automatically follow ‘the call’, or hermit ourselves away. Our decisions lead to the kind of life we live. Decisions that are correct, according to Human Design, come from living by one’s Strategy and Authority.

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.
