Daily Impact - September 23 2023, 18:30 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 46 - Pushing Upward


Bodygraph position: The G Centre

Quarter: The Quarter of Duality - Purpose fulfilled through Relating

Line 3 - Projection

Exalted: A practical approach to good fortune, that maintains the same patterns and attitudes that brought success and does not get sidetracked by indulging in further expectations. The determination to stay with what brings success.

Detriment: A tendency through projection to treat a potential future as the present, leading to unjustified egoism and the loss of momentum and support. The determination to treat a projected success as a reality.

* Here we see one of the ways we can ‘love our body’, treating our ‘temple’ to the natural pastime of walking; breathing in fresh air and strengthening our body through the experience of balanced exercise. It also depicts the ‘walker’ standing on a plateau, looking back to see where she’s come from, and gaining a new perspective on what is behind her.

With the frequency of the 46th Gate we have the theme of ‘love of the body and the flesh’. So we can expect to see and be involved in body-felt experiences that will build our character. It is a natural development to grow during our lives, not merely in size and height physically, but also psychologically and emotionally through the impact of whatever experiences our body goes through.

There is the potential for greater sensuality under this influence, so sharing our bodies with the right person, in the right place at the right time could be especially rewarding.

Being in the right place at the right time is a crucial key to learning the secrets of this influence. Once you accept that where you are is where you need to be for the time being, you can get down to getting on with living and immerse yourself totally in whatever expands your life. So we can expect a more existential attitude to permeate our lives during this time.

This influence is also about our relationships with others and sharing our experience with them. Our dedication to our experience and the dedication of others to their experiences, can result in a rich sharing that can expand the breadth and depth of how life can be lived for us and them. Also how we deal with the other and how they deal with us may be shared. With the emergence of Human Design knowledge, there has never been a better time to enrich our lives by consciously understanding who we are and who the other is in relationship to us.

We may also be contemplating the cycle of life through which we are living. Each decade has its own special flavour of experience; surrendering to the natural cycles and growing through each decade may be something that is shared during this transit. The movement through life may be seen as an upward spiral towards one plateau after another, and it is only when an experience is over that we can look back from the plateau of completion and really see what it has all been about.

There is, of course, the binary to be considered. Love of the body can also manifest as a disregard for the body, especially if we are pushing forward into experiences that are incorrect for us, chasing the carrot of misguided expectation and rushing headlong into crisis.

The 25th ‘Gate of the Spirit of the Self’ grounds the existential, experiential impact of the Sun. This carries with it a theme of innocence, something that may be maintained through any experience. It is also the ‘Gate of Blood’ and attracts shock from the 51st Gate, so aligned to the 46 this could be a time of deep healing of both body and spirit. It also brings a mystical theme to the inner journey into ourselves through initiatory experiences. On the mundane level as a Gate of Universal Love, we may also find ourselves appreciating the world around us and even perceiving the magic that exists in certain objects. This is a time to centre in on our own inner process, with others or alone.

Harmonic Gate

If you have the 29th Gate in your chart then the themes of ‘The Channel of Discovery’ are relevant. With the journey of experience coming to you with this influence, the 29th Gate and its theme of commitment may influence you to commit to a new experience or to going deeply into the experiences you have already correctly committed to.

Here we meet the potential to succeed where others fail, or conversely, to fail where others succeed. The key in this transit is to apply your true Inner Authority to what you meet and, if you are correct in that, put yourself into the experience 100% and let go of any expectations of wherever it is you believe you may end up. Life is not predictable. We can’t know exactly what or whom we are going to meet along the way. We can’t know how we are going to respond until we do (as Generators). Life lived deeply and correctly is a journey of discovery that we grow through.

If you are not correct in following your response, then this transit could lead to committing to the wrong thing and it’s likely you’ll give it up the first chance you get. Do bear in mind, some sensual experiences lead to pregnancy and that leads you into a life that is not so easily dropped.

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 as 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 (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.
