Daily Impact - May 29 2020, 20:29 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 16 - Enthusiasm


Bodygraph position: The THROAT Centre

Quarter: The Quarter of Civilisation - Purpose fulfilled through Form

Line 4 - The leader

Keynote: Genuine and sincere support and recognition of others.

Exalted: Enthusiasm for/and service to higher goals. The skill to recognize and support the talents of others.

Detriment: The demagogue. The refusal to support or recognize the talents of others.

* Here we see the Guinness record holder for ‘Building a ‘house’ of cards’. Consider the preciseness necessary to keep the whole structure balanced. The skill and dexterity necessary to express this particular talent is obvious. The logical repetitiveness of one card after another, gradually creating an awesome pattern representing a city of cards, illustrates the theme of the 16th Gate.

With the 16th Gate fixed by the Sun, we may well find ourselves thinking about our future and, in particular, what we can really identify with. This is a time for discernment. What skill do we have so much enthusiasm for that we can keep on practising it until we reach a precise level of mastery?

It can also be a time when we think we should find more depth in something. So be aware that this is a time when we can tend to spend a great deal of money on workshops and trainings, trying to learn techniques, modalities and systems that can benefit us in our life.

There is a critical theme demonstrated in the particular nature of our preferences. During this time such preferences can come to the surface and be expressed. Such expressions can burst the bubbles of those prone to idealistic hopes and dreams, and in words that be very cynically cutting. So be aware that words can hurt at this time and, whether you are on the receiving end or discouraging others yourself, remember that everyone is receiving this conditioning and don’t take it too personally. If you have the 16 in an Open Throat Centre, then it may serve you to be more careful in the way you express yourself at this time.

Top Tip: There is a tendency to become quite self-critical during this time. Don’t take life quite so seriously.

On the other hand, if you do have a beloved skill in your life, perhaps public speaking, dancing or playing a music instrument, then this is a good time to get down to it. Use the enthusiasm that can come through this transit to go to another level in your expertise.

The 9th ‘Gate of Focus’ grounds the 16th Gate during this time. So we can expect to be pulled into focusing on the small details of something that we are particularly enthusiastic about. Or we could be frustrated by not having the time to do so.

Harmonic Gate

If you have the 48th Gate in your chart then it is likely that you will be enrolling in trainings to get the skills you may think you lack. On the positive side, it may also be a time when you can get your solutions out to others at last! It may also be a time when you think about rearranging your living space into a more functional order.

4TH LINE DAY : Friendship • Opportunism • Networking • Fixed

This is a good day for opportunities as the 4th Line of Opportunism conditions us all today. What opportunities will we meet during our day? They could be either personal or business-related. It would be wise to keep our eyes open. This is a good day for networking, if it’s correct for us to do so.

The theme of friendship will also be strong today. It may surprise us that several friends all contact us ‘out of the blue’ today. This can be important as not everyone is designed to be good at keeping in touch with others, so this conditioning can be helpful for strengthening the links to our network of friends. It may be a day when we seek to confide in someone or they confide in us.

Of course, there is the opposite side of the binary as well; there is the possibility of being ‘burnt out’ by too much talking and relating with friends and we may suffer from ‘people-fatigue’ today.

There is an inherent kindness during the 4th Line days, in alignment with the theme of friendship and opportunism; but it also carries the shadow of meanness, so we may be surprised by some of our interactions today that may leave a bad taste in our mouths following a mean gesture or some unkind words.

Another binary to consider today is Benefactor or Dependant. We may find ourselves on either side of this binary, either seeking support in some way from others or helping someone who is dependent upon us.

The Aspired-to role is aloneness. Aloneness is the medium of creativity, so despite the inherently social nature of the day, it may also manifest for us times when we just want to be alone in our own creative processes.

This is the most ‘fixed’ of all Lines, so this is not a good day to try to adapt to changing situations. Indeed, it may be frustrating or annoying to encounter those who will not willingly change their ways to accommodate what we may want.

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.
