Daily Impact - April 22 2021, 14:49 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 27 - Nourishment

Keynote: THE GATE OF CARING

Bodygraph position: The SACRAL Centre

Quarter: The Quarter of Initiation - Purpose fulfilled through Mind

Line 1 - Selfishness

Exalted: The ego-driven first law of caring for oneself which is not necessarily at the expense of others. The power to care for oneself first.

Detriment: Envy and its attendant misfortunes. The power of selfishness that is manifested through envy.

* Here we see a representation of someone cuddling herself. It’s a little too sweet, warm and fuzzy to be wholly accurate for this non-emotional Gate. The 27th Gate is often as realistic as it is empathetic in its caring. However it clearly represents the foundation of this energy, which is that to really care for another, one must first care for oneself. In so doing, there is enough energy to nourish and be generous to others.



During this transit we may well find ourselves considering caring for others more than usual. This may present itself in mundane examples such as giving money to some of the growing number of beggars appearing in our cities now. It may be us volunteering to support a family member or work colleague or giving to charity due to a TV advert or piece of direct mail that came through our letterbox. The energy to care is conditioning us and that may be a positive thing in increasing our awareness of compassion. Or it may be disastrous, if we fail to follow our Strategy and Authority and become entangled with all kinds of dependents that are not correct for us to be involved in.

With the power to care in the transit field we may also be considering that we need to look after ourselves more, in order to be able to care for those around us. Indeed, with the 50th Gate in one’s chart, we may find ourselves being forced to look to our own resources, if we have been caught up in this conditioning and find ourselves giving too much of our resources away to support others.

It is also the energy of wanting to be cared for, and our behaviour may follow this direction without the instinctual awareness to receive the correct caring from the right people. For instance, true caring involves caring enough about oneself not to accept more of that which we may want, but is unhealthy for us. Caring for others truly may mean withholding what is wanted, to give them the motivation to overcome their dependency.

So be aware of keeping healthy boundaries with how you use your energy and resources during the impact of this transit. Do not underestimate its power. There is a genetic imperative in us to care for the weak, the sick and the young and it’s reinforced in humans through social, moral and ethical collective thinking. But not everyone has the power to care consistently, so be careful not to make a “rod for your own back” by offering your energy to the long-term support of others at this time, unless it is correct for you to do so. Remember transits come and transits go, but promises we expect to be kept. Your signature on contracts dries and holds you to whatever you have agreed to, and there may be personal consequences to generosity offered or given at this time.

On the other hand it may be a good time for both giving and receiving more nourishing support with those around us, whether that be in parent and child relationships, work colleagues or sexual partners.

The 28th Gate grounds the influence of the 27th Gate. So we may expect some risk taking to be involved in entering into an activity, or taking a gamble that is aligned to our purpose. Conversely, there could be melancholy about the lack of purpose and nurturing needed in such moments. The nurturing can include the provision of information or discussion that can help spark the flame of purpose.

Harmonic Gate

If you have the 50th Gate in your chart then the themes of the Channel of Preservation may well come into play for you. You receive the energy to boost your awareness of what it is to be responsible, according to the laws you uphold. You may enjoy “laying down the law” for the good of those you genuinely care for.

You may also find yourself wanting to defend certain values that you support which are under threat in some way. You may find yourself caring more about yourself if you have got out of balance in some important area of your life. You could also consider putting your energy into looking after your family, or home, or business, if you had previously been neglectful. Perhaps this will entail a visit to elderly parents or paying more attention to the real needs of your own children or lover or the community around you.

1ST LINE DAY: Investigation • Insecurity • Self-Absorbed • Creativity

This is the Line of the ‘Investigator’. So this may well be a day when we are introspective in our own investigations.

Security is a theme related to the 1st Line and this is a good day to consider those areas where we may be weak now, and where we could be stronger once we delve deeper into whatever that weakness may be. Where there is insecurity, one can become more secure and more self-sufficient.

So it’s a good day for researching and studying the details that we may not have been ready to deal with before.

There is a natural empathy in the 1st Line when it comes to being open to further information on something that interests us. So be open to learning more on this day.

Being self-absorbed is a fundamental theme and so this is not a particularly good time for socialising, unless we will learn something by meeting others.

As a bonding strategy, the 1st Line theme is pursuer / pursued so be aware of this conditioning around people today. Are we pursuing someone or something and surprised about how direct we can be? Is someone pursuing us, for personal or work-related reasons?

There is also an Authoritarian flavour to the 1st Line themes. Investigators go deep into the foundations out of a feeling of insecurity and become experts in the process. Are we being more authoritarian in our specialised field than usual? Do we notice the exchange of deep information going out from us or coming in to us from others today?

The Aspired-to Role is creativity. So we may find ourselves being creative in our own self-absorbed, investigative processes today.

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

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.
