Daily Impact - February 16 2020, 20:10 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 30 - The Clinging Fire


Bodygraph position: The SOLAR PLEXUS Centre

Quarter: The Quarter of Initiation - Purpose fulfilled through Mind

Line 4 - Burnout

Keynote: An unrealistic pace that begs misfortune.

Exalted: A compulsive and hyperactive nature that carries all the earmarks of burnout but doesn't necessarily arrive at it. A positive outcome is often assisted through analysis. Highly energized feelings that may lead to emotional collapse.

Detriment: Uncontrollable expansion with the inevitable bursting of the bubble. Uncontrollable feelings and accompanying emotional outbursts.

* Here we see a woman filled with burning hot excitement and the desire to experience something for the first time. Imagine the sounds of glee that would be coming out of this woman’s mouth. It is a face full of expectation that whatever she has reacted to will make her dreams come true.

As Gate 30 shines down upon us during this time, we can expect to be feeling desire for something new. It is an energy fired up on expectations, and the feeling that there is the potential for an exciting new experience.

Also known as the Hexagram of ‘Clinging Fire’, the ‘burning’ desire of a particular experience can cling to us, until we actually go into that experience. So this is a time to leave your credit cards at home when you go out or you may find yourself buying something new or booking yourself on some fantasy filled trip of a lifetime. Not that buying something is necessarily a bad thing, but this emotional influence is changeable and what may seem a fantastic opportunity today may seem rather lacklustre tomorrow. So follow your Strategy and Authority, and prepare to encounter all kinds of temptations.

It may also be a time when we experience a yearning for change and are tempted to go for it, only to encounter the Fates that dash our expectations and take us into disappointment or loss. Hope precedes new experiences, but once we have the experience it may not meet our expectations and can even precipitate the crisis of being in over our heads. So through this transit: ‘Be careful what you wish for’.

At an emotional level you may find yourself processing negative feelings from the past that bubble up and demand your attention once more. If you find yourself getting caught in old dramas see if you can accept that the past cannot be changed, and accepting that fully may help you to drop it and move on.

It you have an Open Solar Plexus Centre, notice if you are dwelling upon feelings that came from a reaction to what someone said. Remember that emotionally defined people feel in a wave and the intensity of their verbal or physical outbursts by no means represents how they may actually end up feeling as their emotions are processed over time. You may be holding onto painful memories about something that no longer has any charge for the person who hurt you, and they may be horrified to know you’re still carrying pain over that past event.

The 29th Gate of ‘Saying Yes’ grounds the 30th Gate’s influence from the Sun. So we may have emotional desire for something we have yet to experience, combined with the energy to commit. What could possibly go wrong? Not a good time to sign contracts, make long term plans or invest unless you are following your Strategy and Authority. Of course excitement can bring us positive feelings and it can be a highly sexual energy. But it can also lead to overwhelm and crisis, especially if an incorrect commitment has cemented us into something that wasn’t at all what we had expected.

Harmonic Gate

If you have the 41st Gate in your chart you can expect to be feeling more emotional at this time. This is especially the case in terms of excitement. Watch yourself fill up with hope and expectation and realise that you’re being conditioned.

On the other hand, use this time for getting out what has been held in as a private fantasy, to see that there may actually be people who would be delighted to share that fantasy with you. For example, if you can’t afford to fulfil a dream of going on a safari, sharing that fantasy with others may potentially result in them paying for you if you organise the trip efficiently. Whether that happens or not, certainly you feeling deeply about potential experiences could be noticed at this time.

Top Tip: Be clear about which particular potential experience really rocks your boat, as simply focusing on it makes it more likely to happen. It may be the Fates intervene to dash your expectations or to bring the experience into your life.  

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.
